Reagan requests Contra aid

WASHINGTON (AP)-
President Reagan, warning he won't
be fooled by Sandinista "facades of
freedom," asked Congress yesterday
to approve $270 million in Contra
aid as an insurance policy for peace
in Nicaragua.
Reagan, in a toughly worded
address to the Organization of
American States, lauded recent steps
taken toward peace under a regional
accord.
But he also said the pact is "only
a beginning" and described a series of
steps the leftist Sandinista
government in Managua must take

in order to assure that U.S. military
aid to the Contra rebels ends.
"Full, free and fair elections and
the open society that alone can make
them possible, including full human
rights and expulsion of all Soviet
and Cuban forces - these must be
the bedrock of conditions upon
which any further agreement with
the Sandinistas is built," Reagan
said.
Although House Speaker Jim
Wright (D-Texas) has said Reagan
has little chance of obtaining
renewed military aid, the president
lectured Congress against

abandoning the Contras after
supporting them in the past.
"It cannot just walk away," he
said. "I have made a personal
commitment to them - and I will
not walk away."
Reagan termed the aid package
"the essential guarantee that the
Sandinistas will live up to the
democratic conditions of the
Guatemala Accord," the peace pact
signed in August by five Central
American nations, including
Nicaragua.
The president said he would
"request and fight for" the $270

million, 18-month aid package,
which administration officials have
said would go forward before the
Nov. 7 cease-fire date called for under
the regional peace accord.
"Once a cease-fire is fully in
effect, only that support necessary to
maintain the freedom fighters
(Contras) as a viable force will be
delivered," Reagan pledged. "Then
we, and they, will be watching to
see how genuine the democratic
reforms in Nicaragua are."
He added that he planned to keep a
wary eye on Nicaragua.

In general, day care centers are
known to be places where infections
spread easily because of the number
of small children in the same place.
Adler noted that infection rates
with cytomegalovirus vary in
different regions, but he said that he
believes the problem of
cytomegalovirus infection in
pregnant mothers is not limited to
Richmond.
"We.think it's a national
problem," he said, noting that

similar findings have been made in
Alabama.
Cytomegalovirus is extremely
common in the Third World, where
children are universally infected
before reaching age two, Adler said.
The virus produces no visible
illness in normal children or adults,
Adler said, though it can cause
problems in people whose immune
systems are damaged as a result of
cancer or AIDS.
