COMMUNIST OFFI

Polish s

WARSAW, Poland (UPD-Strikes
persisted in at least 1 locations across
Poland yesterday despite advances in
the free trade union movement and
admission by a Communist Party of-
ficial of the need for major changes..
Polish television said the strikes
"were continuing at 16" work places
and repeated earlier warnings that the
work stoppages could jeopardize the
gains workers have already won.
THE REPORTS DID not detail the
strike locations but dissident sources
said they included tram drivers in the
southern industrial city of Katowice
and workers at the ball bearing plant in
Kielce who have been out for more than
a week. No estimate of number of
workers involved was given.
Tadeusz Fiszbach, first secretary of
the Communist Party in the Gdansk
province, Wednesday night called for a
complete overhaul of the party. He told
Western reporters the crisis situation in
Poland which triggered the summer
labor strife and toppled the government
was the responsibility of the party.
"All of us are guilty," he said. "It is
necessary to change the party."
HE SAID HE favored the convening
of an extraordinary party congress
"quickly and sensibly."
"I personally believe it will be before
the end of this year," he said, adding

ASUNCION, Pagaguay-Paraguay's
army and police conducted land and air
searches yesterday for members of a
khaki-clad assassination squad that
killed Nicaragua's former dictator
Anastasio Somoza in a fusillade of
machine-gun and bazooka fire.
Police and witnesses said six to eight
guerrillas who coordinated their attack
by, walkie-talkie poured machine-gun
fire into Somoza's Mercedes-Benz and
forced it to a halt in front of-a rented
house where a marksman with a
bazooka blew the vehicle apart with a
*rocket. One of those sought was a
woman and one was thought to be
wounded.
AUTHORITIES REOPENED bor-
ders to air, road, and river traffic
yesterday, but strict border checks
were carried out.
For 24 hours after the slaying the
country's international airport was.
closed to outbound flights. Borders with
Brazil, 'Argentina, and Bolivia were
sealed. The massive manhunt was
launched by the right-wing government
of President Alfredo Stroessner, the
friend who granted the 54-year-old
Sqmoza asylum after his ouster from
Nicaragua in 1979.
Air Force planes and helicopters
sonned roads near Paraguay's fren-
tiers and police raided homes in the

capital looking for suspects. At least 100
people were reported detained for
questioning here and at border check-
points.
SOURCES SAID Somoza's son
Anastasio Somoza PortocSrrero, was
expected to arrive today on a special
flight from. Miami to arrange his
father's burial.
Police closed streets around the villa
where Somoza lived with his entourage
and newspapers reported the ex-

tment said that in accordance with the
wishes of his widow, Hope Portocarrero
de Somoza, a U.S. citizen who lives in
the Miami area, Somoza will be buried
somewhere in the United States in
private funeral ceremonies.
Sampson, however, said his five
children are due in Asuncion from the
United States, probably today, and
"only then will we decide if the remains
will be taken to the United States or
buried here.

"The best homage for the valiant
Paraguayan people would be that the
general be buried here" she said.
Sampson, visited by Paraguay's
president, said later, "I have been
destroyed by the loss of my friend of 18
years," adding, "I feel very lonely."
She said the Nicaraguan gover-
nment's decision to declare Wednesday
a day of national celebration "gives an
idea of the type of people who are ruling
Nicaragua."
