RENAISSANCE IMPORTS Centre Village Mall Phone 328-8412 when he received a sur- render ultimatum in last Tuesday's coup in Chile. Quoting an unidentified source at the palace on the day of the coup, Cuban journalist Jorge Timossi said: "Allende had to beg, to implore, to cry. to insult her before she finally agreed to leave with three other women." Timossi. former bur- eau chief of the Cuban news agency Prensa Latina in the Chilean capital. San- tiago, said the emotional scene took place when Allende, on receiving the ultimatum at 11 a.m. ordered his family and the wives of the palace staff to leave the building. Allende. who died in the coup, also gave the palace guards and their chief. (Jen. Sepulveda. the choice to stay or to leave. Timossi said in his account of the day of the coup published in the Havana evening new- spaper Juventud Rebelde. EMOTIONAL SCENE The wives left shortly after the ultimatum was delivered and were follow- ed by the guards and their general. Then came the emotional scene with Beatrix. She arrived in Havana Thursday. Timossi, who was a personal friend of Allende. and Cuban diplomats flew here Friday after being expelled by the new regime in Chile. Timossi said he does not believe that Allende had committed suicide, adding that when troops stormed the palace Miriam Contreras. the president's secretary, "fell, badly wounded." "I learned later she was being operated on in a military hospital. She could be a key witness for all those who want to know what happened when the Fascist troops made their way into the palace. "For this very reason it is easy to suppose that she will not survive her wounds." A Mexican television sta- tion has reported that Allende's widow said in a telephone interview from Santiago Friday night that her husband had shot himself with a sub- machine-gun given to him by Cuban Premier Fidel Castro. FOUGHT WITH GUN The Cuban journalist said Allende fought with a machine-gun. "He was lying in a pool of blood on the carpet in his office It is possible to say he died between p.m. and p.m. Timossi said the first rocket fired by a Hawker Hunter jet aircraft on the palace at a.m. signall- ed the start of the coup. Five minutes later he telephoned a< presidential aide at the 'palace, who said: "You can say that he will die here, that we shall resist to the end." The palace was then counting on the guards, plus some 50 policemen, a group of presidential bodyguards and the palace staff for protection, Timossi said. W --JBB.
