Kissinger named to
foreign policy post
From AP and UPI
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - President
Reagan named Henry Kissinger
yesterday to head a special commission
on U.S. policy toward Central America
and warned the nation will "pay a
terrible price" if it fails to aid Latin
The bipartisan commission, headed
by the former secretary of state, will
forge long-term policy toward Central
America and "keep the light of liberty
alive" in the region, President Reagan
THE COMMISSION will restore
Kissinger to the high-stakes, high-:
intensity diplomacy in which he'
Saying the former secretary of state
is "virtually a legend" in foreign af-
fairs, Reagan announced in a speech to
the International Longshoremen's
Association convention that he will
establish the nine-member advisory
The president thus seized upon an
idea promoted for weeks by key
Democratic and Republican members
of both the House and Senate. In
Kissinger, he has a controversial but
prestigious outsider - one not always
welcomed at the Reagan door - whose
turbulent years in power produced
several dramatic turns in U.S. policy
around the globe.
REAGAN CALLED Kissinger "a
very distinguished American, outstan-
ding in the field of diplomacy - vir-
tually a legend in that field."
But Reagan made clear that while he
awaits recommendations of the new
commission by Dec. 1, he will not yield
on his own embattled program for Cen-
tral America, including $362 million in
military and economic aide for El
Salvador this year alone.
The president's decision to create the
commission, and make Kissinger the
chairman, is but his latest effort to rally
public support by bringing fresh per-
sonnel, including Democrats, into the
policy process. Last month, former
Florida Democratic Sen. Richard Stone
assumed the role of special envoy to
...heads policy commission
Central America, with a mandate for
promoting peace in the region.
REAGAN SAID the panel would focus
on "what we must do in the years ahead
to meet the underlying problems of the
"Let me put it bluntly: There is a war
in Central America that is being
fueled by the Soviets and the Cubans.
They are arming, training, supplying
and encouraging a war to subjugate
another nation to communism. That
nation is El Salvador. The Soviets and
the Cubans are operating from a base
called Nicaragua. This is the first real
communist aggression on the American
mainland," said Reagan.
"But you have to realize much of the
violence there - whether from the ex-
treme right or left - is beyond the con-
trol of the government," he said. "El
Salvador is moving in the right direc-
tion. Its elected government is commit-
ted to further improvement. They need
and deserve our help."
RICHWOOD, WEST VIRGINIA publisher Jim Comstock has started a
new newspaper, this one to report on people who have succeeded in life
without the benefit of college degrees. The paper is called "Black and Blue,"
and is named for the school colors of Comstock's University of Hard Knocks,
which awards "degrees" to self-made men and women. "If you made it
through life with a thick skin instead of a sheepskin, you belong to the
University of Hard Knocks," he says.
In the tradition of dial-a-joke, dial-a-score, and dial-a-prayer, the Missouri
Department on Public Safety has started it own call-in service: "Bad Weed."
The toll-free telephone number, was started so callers can anonymously turn
in people for growing marijuana in Missouri. Public Safety Director Ed
Daniel said that callers do not have to identify themselves, and all, infor-
mation will be kept confidential. No rewards will be offered for the infor-
mation, he added.
