A Dishonorable Discharge for Peronism? ii^i 9 V— f Hut if hp had not acted now BUENOS AIRES — (LENS) —• When an army gives as much forewarning that it is about to take the country over as Argentina's did, it ought to know what it is going to do with its new power. Argentina's army has given itself the job of cleaning up the civilians' mess often enough before, and usually the soldiers have left a large red stain on the carpet. This time the army's intervention should, and could, be like a surgeon's scalpel: short, sharp and clean. Gen. Jorge Videla, the country's new president, has inherited a political and economic wasteland. More than 2,000 people have been killed by political terrorists of left or right since Isabella Peron succeeded her dead husband in July, 1974. Inflation is currently the world's highest, at a rate variously estimated between 400 per cent and 1,000 per cent. The country has run up a total foreign debt of $10 billion. And the ex-president herself was under suspicion of corruption. It will not be easy for General Videla to deal with a disaster on this scale, but he has two advantages that Mrs. Peron did not have. The armed forces are on his side; and he is not beholden to the Peronist trade unions, whose runaway wage increases have pushed inflation to its present height. Modern Argentina has been trapped between the Scylla of Peronism and the Charybdis of the army, never able to escape from the one without disappearing straight into the maw of the other. After Juan Peron had been exiled by the army in 1955. he nevertheless retained his power base in the unions, which took advantage of Argentina's occasional returns to democracy to gobble up the country's economic prosperity. So the army would step in again (there were six military coups between 1955 and 1973), and usually overstay its welcome; when unpopularity drove the soldiers from office, power reverted to an electorate and union movement thirsting once again for Peronism. The army tried banning Peronism during the periods of civilian rule, but to no avail. Successive civilian presidents had to bargain with Argentina's most famous exile in order to get elected. But General Videla has a better chance than, most of his predecessors to break free. Juan Peron is dead, and the military junta will no longer have to contend with the king across the water. General Videla can reasonably hope that Peronism will go to pieces without its founder, and do so quicker than Gaullism is in France. Indeed. General Videla restrained his more impatient subordinates from mounting a coup earlier precisely in order to give time for the process of Peronist disintegration to set in. The power of the unions will remain, of course, to bedevil future civilian governments. But an elected non-Peronist president should be able, with the backing of the army, to keep the unions in hand. The army's seizure of power took place before Argentines had a chance to replace Mrs. Peron democratically, in the election due later this year. But if he had not acted now General Videla would probably have been replaced by a tougher soldier. As it is, he has got off to a less repressive start than most Latin American military rulers. General Videla has given himself three years to get the guerrillas and inflation under some sort of control, and would then like to hand power back to a civilian government. It he sticks to his timetable, he may avoid driving Argentina's voters back to the Peronist barricades. For the first time since 1945 Argentina can glimpse the hope of a non-Peronist. non-army future.

Domain Bill Changes Fail DES MOINES, Iowa (API Legislation to make minor changes in the eminent domain law has failed in the Iowa Senate after complaints were voiced that property owners sometimes are given a raw deal. The Senate turned down the House-passed measure 21-26 Monday but two motions to reconsider were filed. "I'm going to vote against all bills that pertain to eminent domain until I see a bill that gives some protection to the land owner." said Norman Rodgers. D-Adel. Sen. Lowell Junkins, D-Montrose. who had favored the bill, voted against it but filed a motion to reconsider as did Sen. James Gallagher, D-Jesup. who opposed the measure. Basically, the bill would have made it easier for a judge to select a condemnation commission and would have eliminated the exemption properly owners currently have to stop construction on property that holds an out-house, garden or orchard. The opposition mounted when an amendment by Sen. Ray Taylor. R-Steamboat Rock, was ruled out of order. Taylor's proposal would have required the state to offer to sell excess condemned land to the original owner at the price he was paid. Sen. W. R. Rabedeaux. R-Wilton. said the bill was requested by the Iowa Department of Transportation and the Iowa Conservation Commission. Those agencies don't condemn land they don't need, he said, and the conservation commission has condemned only 12 parcels totaling 816 acres in the past 25 years.
