Rebel forces occupy
fallen city in El Salvador


From AP and UPI
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador - Lef-
tt guerrillas yesterday occupied the
biggest city to fall in three years of civil
war, driving off two army reinfor-
cement columns, government officers
said. Sixty civilians were reported dead
in 4he fighting.
An occupation force of some 500
rebels from the Farabundo Marti
.rational Liberation Front held Berlin,
1 miles east of San Salvador, after cap-
turing the city in two days of round-the-
glpck fighting.
IT WAS THE first time in three years

that guerrillas had been able to occupy
and hold a city as big as Berlin, which
in 1979 had a population of 36,000. That
number has dwindled to half as residen-
ts fled the war zone.
Relief organizations said 60 civilians
were killed and 32 seriously wounded in
the 34-hour battle between 500
buerrillas and 70 national guardsmen
backed by bombing and strafing from
U.S.-made aircraft.
Meanwhile, in Washington, the in-
vestigation into the killings of four
American churchwomen in El Salvador
more than two years ago appears to be

one of the victims said yesterday.
William Ford, brother of slain
Maryknoll nun Ita Ford, charged that
the case against five Salvadoran
national guardsmen is in disarray and
the possibility that superior officers or-
dered the killings has never been
seriously examined.
Ford, along with other family mem-
bers and friends of the four women, has
just returned from El Salvador. He said
evidence of higher-level involvement
has been ignored by the Salvadoran
government and the Reagan ad-

From AP and UPI
ST. LOUIS - President Reagan,
touring a Chrysler Corp. plant that
plans to rehire half of the 7,000 workers
it has laid off, declared yesterday the
seeds of economic recovery are
"sprouting all over the place."
"I know that Chrysler employees
here in Fenton have had a rough time
the last few years," Reagan told
workers in the refurbished factory out-

side St. Louis. "But I want you to know
- and I really mean it - America is on
the mend and both the economy and
Chrysler are on the comeback trail.
"Auto sales are up and that's having
its effect," he said. "The same thing is
happening at Ford and GM."
THE PRESIDENT told auto workers,
"We're going to get this economy
humming like one of those Chrysler
engines I saw being stuffed in, back

And, acknowledging he is "not abov
stealing a good line," Reagan imitated
a frequently seen Iacocca commercial,
concluding "If you can find a better
program than that, you buy it."
Reagan's chief of staff, James Baker,
said the visit was part of a series of one-
day trips outside Washington to combat
"the idea that this president doesn't
know what it is like to be unemployed
and-so forth."
BUT LIKE HIS trip to Boston last
week, in which the president visited a
high-technology job training site anti
computer assembly plant, Reagap
stressed, as well, his claim that the
economy finally is responding to his
Among the autos to be manufactured
here will be Chrysler's new G-24 sports
car. Corporate spokesman Al Kelly said
Chrysler will rehire more than 3,000 of
the 7,000 workers it laid off when it shut
the truck plant and converted to the
robotic manufacture of front-wheel-
drive cars.
The president toured the facility via
golf cart, and stopped to watch robots
welding roofs onto the autos, sparks
flying over his head. Asked how many
people lost jobs to the robots, Reagan
replied: "They're all making robots."
