WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) -
The conversion of former Secretary
of State George Shultz has experts
predicting others from across the
political spectrum will join ranks
iwith those who see decriminalization
*as a workable solution to the drug.
C National drug control policy di-
rector William Bennett acknowledges
that Shultz may draw others with
him, but argues that legalization is a
"dopey idea" and a "moral disaster"
that will not wash with anyone who
has been "within five miles of a
Nevertheless, legalization propo-
.ents are trumpeting an October
speech by Shultz that appeared in
adapted form in The Wall Street
Journal as a major step toward mov-
ing the once-radical viewpoint to-
ward the mainstream.
The political mix of legalization
advocates is already broad. On the
conservative side are Shultz,
economist Milton Friedman and po-
itical commentator William F.
Buckley. The liberal side includes
:Democratic Mayor Kurt Schmoke of
Baltimore, Hodding Carter II, jour-
rialist and chief State Department
spokesperson in the Carter adminis-
tration, and former Attorney General
"The liberal-conservative defini-
tions keep crumbling," Princeton
Jniversity's Ethan Nadelmann said
Most say President Bush's anti-
drug strategy, developed by Bennett,
his more of the same law enforcement
programs that have not worked in
"It seems to me we're not really
going to get anywhere until we can
take the criminality out of the drug
business and the incentives for crim-
Vality out of it," Shultz wrote in
'is Journal piece.
"Frankly, the only way I can
think of to accomplish this is to
make it possible for addicts to buy
drugs at some regulated place at a
price that approximates their cost....
We need at least to consider and ex-
amine forms of controlled legaliza-
tion of drugs."
Bennett acknowledged that the le-
al movement is "going somewhere.

and the academy, libertarians, and
it's getting currency with people
who want more than anything else
to be au courant. But is doesn't hold

SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador
(AP) - Troops battled rebels in the
capital yesterday after a massive
guerrilla offensive that included at-
tacks on the home of President Al-
fredo Cristiani and official buildings,
the military said. An American
teacher was among at least 127 peo-
ple reported killed.
According to hospitals in the area
more than 197 people were wounded
and there were reports of fighting in
four of the country's 14 provinces,
including in the northern section of
Gunfire, explosions and sirens
rang out throughout San Salvador
when the guerrillas launched the of-
fensive Saturday night, and the
sounds of fighting could still be
Cristiani's private home and his
official residence both were attacked,
military officials said. He was at his
private home and was unhurt, they
Cristiani, speaking over nation-
wide radio and television, said he
called a meeting of the Council of
Ministers to consider declaring a
state of siege.
"The terrorists must know that
there are judicial tools to fight these
irrational attacks," Cristiani said.
"You must heed the call to not
go out in the streets and to stay in
your houses or where you are right
now. It's just a question of a short
time," he told citizens.
Carlos Mendoza, spokesperson
for the Salvadoran Red Cross, said in
a telephone interview that at least 20
civilians had been killed.
Government troops and a tank en-
tered El Salvador National Univer-
sity yesterday and damaged some
buildings when they opened fire, a
A teacher at the American High
School in San Salvador was among
those killed Saturday night in the at-
tacks, said U.S. Embassy spokesper-
son Barry Jacobs. Jacobs would give
no details and said the victim's name
was being withheld pending notifica-
tion of family members.
The Farabundo Marti Liberation
Front has been fighting a succession
of U.S.-backed governments in El
Salvador for 10 years.
In a broadcast over their clandes-
tine rebel Radio Venceremos, guer-
rillas called the offensive part of a
national maneuver called "Remove
the fascists, Febe Elizabeth lives."
This offensive is named after
union leader Febe Elizabeth Ve-
lazquez, who died in an Oct. 31 ex-
plosion at the National Federation of
"Today we are fighting against
misery, against those who stay in
power through savagery aimed at
churches, universities, opposition
political parties, guilds, unions and
dissident sectors," the broadcast said.
