New Violence Follows Edict In Argentina BUKNOS AIRES (AP) Ar- gentine IciTorisls Thursday sliot ,o death an army major and burned military vehicles in Hie first reaction to the government declaration of a state of siege. Major Hector Lopez was slain as he left his home in Santa Fc, 100 miles north of here. The shots came from a house across the street. Terrorist groups set firo to about 20 military buses at a fac- tory north of Buenos Aires. Other guerillas briefly seined the railroad station at Avellanc- da, south of the capital, painted slogans and dis- tributed literature of the out- awed People's Revolutionary Army Peron Decree With political assassinations occurring at a rate of more than one a day, President Isabel Peron returned Argentina to a stale of siege Wednesday. Her decree enabled the government to hold anyone indefinitely with- out trial. Anyone can be banished to a remote corner of the country, and public meetings are prohi- bited. "The state of siege is a consti- tutional tool that will not alter the political life of the said Antonio Troccoli, congres- sional leader of the Radical Civic U n i o n, largest anti- government party. There was widespread con- cern, that it would not end the terrorism. In the 130 days since Peron's widow succeeded him, at least 13f> persons have been murdered by left-wing or right-wing ter- rorists. School Rumors Interior Minister Alberto Ro- camera said the state of siege w a s necessary because o rumors that an unidentified group planned to bomb school rooms. Thousands kept their children home Wednesday be- cause of the rumors. The violence is the work of a least three terrorist organiza tions. The Montonero guerillas an extreme leftist in the Peronis youth movement who have de clared open war on Mrs. Peron In retaliation, the ullra-consei v a t i v e Argentine Anti-Corn munist Alliance has been tortur ing and gunning down leftists And !he Marxist ERP has bee killing army officers in rctalia lion for ERP guerillas it charge were murdered in prison. The groups are well anno and highly organized in secre cells. The government is oxpecl ed to concentrate its campaign on the leftists, believing that i they are wiped out right-wing terrorism will disappear. (Continued from Page 1.) Middle East settlement was "the only possible one." Syria lias along with that approach in the past but whether it would in the future was not known. Turkey Visit Kissinger Thursday canceled a visit to Turkey scheduled for Friday because of the deterio- rating political situation there. Premier-designate Bulent Ece- vil said Turkey had been unable to form a government after 53 days of trying and that any agreement on Cyprus would not be binding. He said he was giv- ing up efforts to form a govern- ment. The announcement came as students from Ankara's Middle East Technical universi- ty boycotted classes to protest tile Kissinger visit and staged a campus demonstration with signs reading, "Kissinger mur- derer." Kissinger said in Amman lie had found unexpected Arab flexibility in interpreting last week's controversial Arab sum- mit talks in Rabat and said he was reminded of the Japanese movie "Rashomon" in which everyone in the film gives a dif- ferent version of the same event. In Saudi Arabia he won sup- port from King Faisal and a pledge from oil minister Omar Saqqaf that Saudi Arabia would try to hold the line on oil prices and possibly even cut them slightly.
