Pope advises youth in South America
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Pope John Paul II urged 45,000 cheering Venezuelan high school and college students to resist the temptation to seek refuge from reality in drugs, sex and “alien ideologies.”
The pope — making his 25th trip abroad and sixth to Latin America — winds up the Venezuelan portion of his four-nation tour today with a brief trip to toe southern industrial town of Ciudad Guyana. He then returns briefly to Caracas before flying to Quito, Ecuador.
I .ate Monday, the pope addressed about 45,000 youths in a packed stadium in Caracas.
Speaking in Spanish, the pope told the audience not to “succumb to the
easy temptation of escape, of evasion, closing oneself in an attitude of egoistic isolation, seeking refuge in alcohol, drugs, sex, in alien ideologies or those who preach hate and violence.”
The youths sang, cheered and waved flags in the lighted stadium, decorated with banners and flowers.
In Ciudad Guayana, founded in 1961 and home to an industrial development zone and gold and diamond mining, the pope will celebrate Mass for an expected 500,000 people. He will tour a steel mill and join workers for lunch at the state-owned factory.
The pontiff arrives in Ecuador this
evening and stays until Friday, then moves on to Peru and Trinidad-Tobago. Ecuador, an Andean nation of 8.5 million people along the Pacific Coast of South America, recently has been hit by strike violence.
In Venezuela, the pontiff traveled to the oil center of Maracaibo and the Andean southwestern city of Merida on Monday, and he was greeted warmly by hundreds of thousands of people.
The pope's homily themes centered on the traditional Roman Catholic doctrines: Catholic education,
strengthened families and condemnation of abortion, sterilization and divorce.
OPEC ministers discuss slashing oil prices
GENEVA, Switzerland (AP) — OPEC oil ministers entered a second day of emergency talks today in broad agreement on cutting prices but divided on how to do it.
A small cut in the cartel’s base price of $29 a barrel appeared increasingly likely after Monday’s opening session, although sources said the unanimous agreement needed was not yet assured.
Any cut in prices would be only the second in the 25-year history of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. The first, to $29 from $34, was in March 1983.
Egypt’s oil minister, attending the conference as an observer, withdrew today, saying he was returning to Cairo to review Egypt’s pricing. Abdul-Hadi Kandil said he “doubted" his country would follow OPEC pricing directives.
Egypt is not an OPEC member, but its daily oil production of about
870,000 barrels is nearly as large as the major OPEC producers. Kandil earlier had said the ministers’ confusing deliberations wer pushing prices down.
Kandil walked into the OPEC conference room this morning and then left a few minutes later. “I just went in to salute them, and I told them I’m leaving and please don’t invite me anymore to the meetings," he told reporters.
The 13 ministers opened their conference on a rocky note, with one Arab minister storming out of the meeting and denouncing the Nigerian representative for breaking OPEC rules.
The rift between Mana Saeed Oteiba. oil chief of the United Arab Emirates, and Nigerian Oil Minister Tam David-West forced an early recess of Monday's session. Oteiba. who later rejoined the talks and said the dispute was over, accused David-
West of “stabbing OPEC in the back” by producing more than the assigned share of oil and “undermining the pricing structure."
The acrimony added to doubts about OPEC’s ability to act decisively against sliding oil prices, and petroleum traders in the United States sent prices of the top domestic crude briefly tumbling below $25 a barrel for the first time since 1979.
The price drop indicated that “the market definitely does not have much confidence in OPEC’s ability to come up with an agreement," said Andrew I.ebow, an oil trading analyst at the New York investment firm Shearson I finnan- American Express Inc.
Hut Lebow said markets recovered most of the lost ground by day’s end because of evidence that OPEC was “making progress toward an agreement.”

Thailand attacks Vietnamese with air strike
ARANYAPRATHET. Thailand (AP) — Thailand launched air strikes to support marines battling Vietnamese troops who intruded into Thai territory in pursuit of Cambodian resistance fighters, a Thai military spokesman said today.
The marines intercepted well-armed Vietnamese troops about a half-mile inside Thailand and a nine-hour clash ensued on Monday, Capt. Chaturon Pankongchuen said He did not say how many Vietnamese troops were involved in the fight.
The marines radioed for air support and Thai U-10 aircraft were dispatched to strafe and rocket the intruders in Bo Rai district of Thailand's Trat province, which borders Cambodia, the officer said The U-10 is a light, single-engine plane converted for military use by the Thai air force The area is opposite Sok Sann, a camp of the Khmer People’s National liberation Front that fell to the Vietnamese offensive in December.
Chaturon. who is deputy chief of staff of the Chan taburi-Trat Defense Command, said Thai casualties were “light” but did not say how many Vietnamese losses, if any, were not known
