Envoys flee Riot-Hit Bolivian Gty WASHINGTON W) The State'Department said today the stiff of the U.S.-Embassy in La'Paz, .where anti-Ameri can riots occurred Monday night, has moved to the out skirts of the city "for bette protection by the Bolivian army." The riots followed publica tion by Time magazine of a article quoting an unidentified U.S. Embassy official as sug gesting the way to solve Bo- livia's. economic problems is to abolish the country. The official was quoted as saying neighbors should "di- vide the country and its prob- lems." President Hernan Siles went on the radio Monday night to tell the Bolivian people that American officials had denied the magazine story. MOBS HAD stoned the U.S. Embassy.

AT THE CAPITOL, Sen. Styles Bridges (R-NH) told newsmen he favored sending U. S. troops to La Paz if mob violence continues. He also said foreign aid to the coun- try should be stopped. Bridges said the mob dem- onstration showed the lack of appreciation of Bolivians for American aid.

"After all of the money we have poured into Bolivia to help them balance their budget with our funds, this mob action is unjustified, un- called for and unapprecia- tive." BRIDGES, WHO said he had talked to State Depart- ment officials, said he regards the situation as very serious. During Monday night's rioting, a 15-year-old student was shot fatally. There were no injuries reported to Amer- ican but Bridges said the lives of "hundeds of Amer- icans were endangered." Weather- Low clouds and fog tonight and early Wednesday.
