British artillery
hits Stanley with
bombs, leaflets

From AP and UPI
British forces blitzed Argentine
positions around Stanley with artillery,
bombs and surrender leaflets yester--
day, but the Argentines refused to give
in and battled British commandos six
miles west of the Falklands capital in
fog, mud and snow, reports from the
front said.
Press Association, Britain's domestic
news agency, said Prime Minister
Margaret Thatcher has made "one last
offer" to Argentina to withdraw its
troops from the Falklands before what
likely will be a bloody battle for the
capital. It gave no details and did not
say whether Argentina replied.
IN BUENOS Aires, Argentine
President Leopoldo Galtieri was asked
if he would now seek help from the
Soviet Union, which has declared its
support for Argentina.
"Argentina is going to accept the
hand of whoever extends it," he said.
On Wednesday, Cuban Foreign
Minister. Isidoro Malmierca Peoli said
in Havana that Cuba would give
"whatever aid is necessary to Argen-
tina in this decisive moment."
BRITISH government sources said
Mrs. Thatcher also has given the
British commanders approval to attack
Stanley "whenever they are ready"
and assured them they will not be held
up for "political or diplomatic
reasons."
Military sources in London said Maj.
Gen. Jeremy Moore, commander of
British ground forces in the Falklands,
is not expected to unleash the final of-
fensive until the weekend while he
moves up troops, heavy weapons and
supplies to the high ground west of the
capital.
British correspondents said Moore,
looking through binoculars, viewed the
blue and white Argentine flag above the
former British governor's residence in
Stanley and quoted him as telling his
men: "We'll hoist the Union Jack down
there just as soon as we can get there.

Today
The weather
Yuck. Showers will appear in the morning with temperatures dipping to
the chilly mid-W0s.
Lost on the lam
A BPRGLAR broke into a Rye, N.Y., house and cased it for
valuables, but then got lost and had to wake someone up to find the exit,
police said Wednesday. They're calling it the "case of the dumb burglar."
Police said the burglar broke in early Sunday, apparently became disorien-.
ted and could not find a way out. He did, however, find the bedroom, so he
awakened a sleeping resident, who obedently showed him the way out. The
resident then called police and described the burglar. A short time later,
police arrested Ray Reed, 30, of Manhattan and charged him with second-
degree burglary and criminal trespassing. Police said it was not im-
mediately known whether anything was taken from the house in this affluent
Westchester County suburb north of New York City. Q

... would accept Soviet aid
And believe me, it won't be long."
INFORMED sources in London, who
asked not to be identified, reported
firefights as British Special Air Service
squads probed the Argentine defense
perimeter about six miles west of
Stanley. There was no official confir-
mation or word on casualties.
British Harrier jets dropped bombs
and thousands of leaflets calling on the
Argentine troops to surrender. Half the
leaflets bore "safe conduct passes" in
English and Spanish signed by Rear
Adm. John Woodward, commander of
the 100-ship British armada around the
South Atlantic islands that Argentina
seized from Britain April 2.
Other leaflets called on the estimated
7,000 Argentines to make the "correct
and honorable" decision to surrender
like their comrades on South Georgia
island, 700 miles to the east, who raised
the white flag April 25-26, the Defense
Ministry in London said.
