President Reagan proposed $100
million in aid to Nicaraguan rebels in
his State of the Union address. Vargas
said the Contras aren't getting the
money and probably won't be in Nica
ragua by this summer.
"The Contras isn't a country, isn't a
nation, isn't a movement. It's a mer

Cultural and Labor Affairs Counselor
for Nicaragua at its U.S. Embassy in
Washington. "They don't have popular
support, so what is the justification of

scapegoat for other things that are

red lapping at the doorstep" of the
United States, he said.

The people of Nicaragua, who have
spent 45 years under dictatorships
financed by the United States, are arm

from the most powerful nation in the
world," he said.
Vargas will speak at a brown bag
luncheon today at 11:30 a.m. in Old-fciherSSa.
