Non- aculty staf

By BILL SPINDLE
Last week's announcement that non-
academic employees probably will not
receive a pay raise this fall has sparked
protest among some University staff
members.
The administration's tentative bud-
get, presented at last week's Regents
meeting, includes pay hikes for faculty,
but does not provide salary increases
for non-academic staff.
NON-ACADEMIC employees ex-
pressed dissatisfaction with the budget
plan.
"I'm not surprised," said Lili Kivisto,

a student services assistant in the
political science department, "but I'm
disappointed to know they are giving
money to one group and telling the
other 'we may get around to you, or we
might not.' "
"It is important to keep good faculty
here,". she said, "but you have to
realize it is the (non-academic) support
that makes effective scholarship
possible."
THE UNIVERSITY will not be able to
afford a pay increase for its non-
academic staff unless it can secure in-
creased funds from the state or find

Torturing in
El Salvador
may threaten
U.S. support

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Salvadoran
police tortured a relief agency volun-
teer in May, prompting the U.S. am-
bassador to warn that such actions
could jeopardize Americans' support
for military aid to the war-torn country,
State Department officials said yester-
day.
The warning came to light as the
Reagan administration prepared to
certify that the Salvadoran government
was making progress in human rights,
a congressional requirement for con-
tinuation of this year's $81 million in
U.S. military assistance.
President Reagan was expected to
make that finding Wednesday.
STATE Department officials said the
National Police torturing of a
Salvadoran volunteer for the Green
Cross, a medical relief agency, was one
of a number of recent human rights
violations known to the U.S. Embassy.
But they argued the Salvadoran
government has achieved enough
progress to justify certification.
"Police officers and military officers
are being punished for these incidents,"
said Elliott Abrams, assistant
secretary of state for human rights.
"There has been improvement in the
performance of the National Police.
That is not to suggest that there are not
abuses."
IN INTERVIEWS and internal State
Department documents, U.S. officials
also cited problems in convincing the
Salvadoran military to take prisoners

in battle and to stop killing civilians
suspected of helping leftist insurgents.
While recommending certification,
Abrams said the human rights situation
in El Salvador remained "horrible."
He said the challenge facing the
United States has been "to change the
political culture of El Salvador" which
he claimed traditionally relied on
violence to solve differences. "I don't
think people thought this could be done
in a short-time effort."
STATE Department officials who
asked not to be identified said U.S. Am-
bassador Deane Hinton warned
Salvadoran President Alvaro Magana
in San Salvador last month that the
practice of torture could damage U.S.
public support for the Salvadoran
government.
The warning came after the embassy
was told about the torturing of the
Green Cross volunteer, who was
suspected of giving supplies to the
guerrillas. The volunteer said he had
been distributing medicines to
refugees.
A State Department official identified
the Green Cross volunteer as Francisco
Zamora, who was arrested May 19 and
released nine days later.
Meanwhile, Sen. Christopher Dodd
(D-Conn.), the author of the cer-
tification requirement, said he saw no
way the president could honestly find
progress in human rights and in the
land reform program.
