President Alfonsin calls for rebels' surrender
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina President Raul Alfonsin in
a dramatic gesture Sunday traveled to a rebel camp near
Buenos Aires and obtained the surrender of some 150 rebel
soldiers, according to officials in the president's party.
Alfonsin, who had gone by helicopter to the military
camp 19 miles west of Buenos Aires, then returned jubi
lantly to the capital.
"Compatriots! Happy Easter! The warned men have
ceased" their 72-hour mutiny, a beaming Alfonsin told
400,000 cheering people packed in Plaza de Mayo, the main
square in downtown Buenos Aires.
The 2-day-old revolt the second military rebellion in
four days produced a deluge of popular support .for
Alfonsin's government, which was elected in 1983 to restore
democracy after seven years of harsh military rule.
But there were also signs of resistance Sunday among
Alfonsin's own troops at Campo de Mayo, 22 miles east of
"There are problems with mid-level commanders of the
army in charge of carrying out the operation," said Sen.
Adolfo Gass, a prominent member of Alfonsin's Radical
Civic Union party. "I don't understand why the loyal forces
have not attacked the mutineers."
About 2,000 loyal Army troops stood encircled Sunday
around the Pedro Aramburu Infantry School, with the rebel
soldiers just 150 yards away, but not a shot was fired.
The rebel officers were seeking an end to prosecution of

court orders in the human rights cases.

Palestinian guerrillas infiltrate Israel, kill two
MENARA, Israel Palestinian guer
rillas on a hostage-taking mission
sneaked into northern Israel and killed
two soldiers Sunday before being slain
in the bloodiest infiltration in seven
years, the army said.
The firefight in an apple orchard fol
lowed a week of violence in northern
Israel. The army said the strife was
linked to a scheduled meeting in Al
geria on Monday of Palestinian leaders
to map out a new political and military
strategy against Israel.
The army identified the infiltrators
as members of Yasser Arafat's main
stream Fatah wing of the Palestine
Liberation Organization, which has
stepped up military activity recently in
an apparent effort to regain the sup
port of hardliners.
The guerrillas penetrated in pre
dawn darkness near an isolated com
munal farm, where several hundred
people live on the Israeli-Lebanese
border, the army command said.
The army said the guerrillas planned
to take hostages apparently to nego
tiate for the release of Palestinian
The attack was the most serious
Postal, ir&il sMkes challenge
infiltration since April 7, 1980, when
guerrillas entered the border kibbutz
of Misgav Am and killed three Israelis,
including a 2 12-year-old boy.
Soldiers searching the guerrillas'
bodies found knives, grenades and LAU
missiles, the army said. The guerrillas
also were carrying water, food and
pamphlets calling for the release of
Palestinian prisoners jailed in Israel.
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -At
a time when South Africa has suppressed
most protest, strikes by black railway
and postal workers have opened a
volatile new political front and pose an
unprecedented challenge to the public
Wages are not the issue in the 5-week-old
rail strike and the 2-week-old
postal strike. The unions say their,
goals are to eliminate workplace racism
and force management to negotiate
with them instead of recognizing a
black staff association.
No end is in sight for either strike,
which together involve more than 20,000
workers; Efforts to start negotiations
collapsed before the Easter weekend,
and the unions are now seeking to
broaden the walkouts while management
hires whites to replace the strikers.
The rail strike, in particular, seems
hopelessly deadlocked. The walkout,
the largest and longest ever in the
public sector in South Africa, appears
likely to provoke more violence like the
arson attacks last week that damaged
more than 60 coaches of the South
African Transport Services, known as
Thus far, disruption of services has
been limited. . The main effect of the
rail strike is a backlog of about 700
undelivered containers. The postal
strike's impact has been confined mostly
to Johanneburg's black township of

MY CONTACT LENSES FITTED PMOPE
Like most people, I'm on t he go alot. I tried contact lenses a few years ago and
was never really happy. Wearing contacts helped my vision but they became a
hassle because of the mild discomfort and occasional fuzzy vision.
