Salvadoran guerrila attacks grow stronger

EL TRANSITO, El Salvador (AP) -

alvadoran government, leftist
rrillas are making headway in their

The guerrillas have taken their 2 -
ear-old hit-and-run battle to scores of
ommunities that' lived quietly until a
ew months ago.
On Monday the insurgents reached

d yesterday announced their inten-
n to increase the assaults, par-
icularly in the evening.
PRESIDENT Reagan's ad-
ministration, committed to support the
civilian-military junta, announced last
week it was sending $55 million in ad-
ditional military aid to El Salvador af-
ter one guerrilla attack on a military
base destroyed 10 warplanes and
helicopters, more than half the junta's
air force.
This sum was in addition to the $26
illion approved by Congress a month
ago. Assistant Secretary of State
Thomas Enders said the aid was
needed to prevent the guerrillas from
overthrowing the junta, which plans to
hold elections for an assembly March
As now planned, the assembly will
decide how and when to hold elections
next year for president and other
leaders. Leftists have refused to par-
ipate, claiming there are no guaran-

APPARENTLY intent on showing
muscle before the elections, the 5,000
guerrillas of the Farabundo Marti's
National Liberation Front have been
occupying tiny farm villages and at-
tacking strategic targets far from their
traditional strongholds in northern
provinces near the Honduran border.
' Relief workers caring for refugees

of 'the country's 14 provinces. The
workers asked not to be identified
by name for fear of reprisals.
"The guerrillas could overrun 'this

THE GUERRILLAS have captured
few. towns and held none for more than
10 days. But in a spectacular raid Oct.
15, they destroyed the Golden Bridge
spanning the Lempa River, cutting the
country's major East-West highway.
On Jan. 27, they attacked the llopango
air base outside the capital, San
Salvador, crippling the junta's air for-
ce. The United States last week sent six
new helicopjers.
The war now is more widespread
than during a nationwide guerrilla of-
fensive in January 1981, which failed
for lack of popular support.
The position of the junta's armed for-
ces, numbering 20,000 men, is now wor-
se than a year ago, according to a
Western diplomat who asked not to be
identified for policy reasons.

SO FAR, THE guerrillas have
avoided extended face-to-face combat
with the army. Reported casualties
were relatively low during the second
half of 1981 - 16orebel deaths by their
own count, and 800 army troops dead or
wounded by government estimate.
In the same period, according to El
Salvador's Human Rights Commission,
government soldiers and rightist
"death squads" have killed 6,387
civilians. It estimated the 2%-year-old
war so far has claimed 3,000 lives out of
a total population of five million.
As the war quickens, more and more
refugees move through the countryside.

Iowans: "They say the people we elect
to state and local office can't be trusted
to run state and local affairs. Well then,
who can we trust? A handful of in-
lividuals with a strong case of Potomac
Fever? The very individuals who got us
into this mess?"
As for his spending plan, said
Reagan, "The budget we have-nrooosed
is a line drawn in the dirt. Those who are,

serious about reducing the deficit will,
cross it and work with us on our
proposals or their alternatives. Those
who are not sincere in their concern
about the deficit will stay on the other
side and simply continue their .
theatrics. The American people are'
tired of theatrics."
In Michigan, Gov. William Milliken
warned Reagan's proposed budget
could have a "severe" impact on
Michigan and said state officials may
lobby for changes.
MILLIKEN, IN one of his sharper
breaks with a president he helped elect,
also told reporters it appears the poor

for the 1983 fiscal year. Milliken in-
dicated he has some problems with the
president's'"new federalism."

Illegal money game comes to campus

problem with finding people to buy into

he said. "It's a known bet for a known
risk. The authorities 'can't do
anything about it," he added.
Sgt. Norman Olmstead in the Checks

Police Department said he was aware
of the money pyramids on campus, but,
"They're something we've never
looked into," he said. "If someone says
they've been victimized and makes a
