2 GRBELBY (Colo.) TRIBUNE Vrl, April 21, 1972 Allende To Ask Chilean House To Nationalize ITT Holdings By WILLIA F. NICHOLSON Associated Press Writer SANTIAGO (AP) - In another aftermath of the Anderson papers, President Salvador Allende says he will ask the Chilean Congress to nationalise international Telephone Telegraph Corp.'s holdings in Chile, valued by the company al $200 million. Allende told a cheering torch- lit rally of several hundred thousand Tuesday night (hat i'lT was "a typical case of an imperialistic business" that has left Chile deep in debt. Washington columnist Jack Anderson reported several weeks ago that confidential ITT documents showed the corporation and the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency had discussed ways lo prevent Al- Icndc, a Marxist, from taking office in November 1870. The Chilean Congress subsequently launched an invesli- gnlion into CIA activities in the country and the Allende gov- ernment published the Anderson papers in a briskly selling linok called "The Secret ITT Documents." Allciidc's program lo bring .socialism lo Chile by nationalizing major industries and businesses has been blocked recently by Ihe moderate and conservative majority in Congress. Hut Anderson's revelations gave the president a big boost by whipping up a wave of public scntimenl againsl Ihc U.S. government and ITT. ITT's Chilean holdings are the second largest of any U.S. group in Chile, exceeded only by the $700 million invested by the Anaconda, Kcnnecotl and Cerro copper companies. Nationalization of the copper holdings was completed last July, and Allende has refused to pay coni|)ensalion for them, claiming the companies siphoned excess profits out of Chile. ITT owns 70 per «nt of Chile's biggest telephone company, a telephone equipment factory and a cable office, and its Sheraton Hotel subsidiary operates two luxury hotels in Santiago. 'Hie telephone company has been under government control since last year.

"I spoke twice with the high- ist representatives of ITT to arrive at a nationalization grecmenl," Allende said Tues- lay night. "They totally re- ectcd our plan . . . because hey have an insurance policy n the United States." According to ITT sources, the corporation wanted $153 million iut the Chilean government of- ered $23 million. About $100 million of ITT's otal investment in Chile is covered by expropriation insurance guaranteed by the U.S. govern- nent's Overseas Private In- ·estment Corp. "ITT left us only 33,000 telephones for 9 million Chileans," Allende told the rally. "ITT in- ·ested $28 million and took $360 million out of the country and eft us with $35 million in debts." ITT operated telephone companies in China and Cuba thai vere expropriated. ;ave strong support to liberal :andidates while the rest of the lewly enfranchised group failed of the University'of Wisconsin) and other areas, it does not o demonstrate a 'oting preference. The nonstudent young, seem (hat there is that much discernible difference," said J. Austin Ranney, a political science profes- who make up about 65 per cent of he 18-10-20-year-olds, appeared o have been more influenced )y the politics of mom and dad tian by the persuasiveness of he politicians. The exception was the college :tudent. To get some measure if how the new voters cast heir ballots in the primaries to ate, Associated Press bureaus n New Hampshire, Florida, 11- inois and Wisconsin examined he results, talked with young leople and gathered opinions rom election officials and par- y leaders. Ran Well In all four stales, liberal can- lidates ran very well in campus precincts where there! vere concentrations of young olers. ' However, the winning margins they piled up in campus communities were substantially reduced at the county or congressional district level and made no significant impact on statewide figures. "If you look at returns from |places like Dane County (home fishback sor at the university. "The can didalcs run in about (lie same order, the same proportion of the vole." Results from two congressional districts in Illinois illustrate how the campus support of liberal candidates was absorbed at (he county level. In selecting delegates to the D e m o c r a t i c National Convention, voters in both districts c h o s e between delegates pledged to Sen. Edmund S. Muskie of Maine or Sen. George S. McGovern of South Dakota, the more liberal of the pair. Won Handily McGovern delegates landily in precincts near Eastern Illinois University in Char- cston, 111., but Muskie delegates won every seat from the 22nd Congressional District. McCiovern delegates also won .lie top six spots in precinds ihal include the University of Illinois in Champaign, 111. Onlj four won delegate spots whcr he total vote of the 21st Congressional District was tabu ated. CAMERA SHOPS Quality Color Prints 826 9th St. 352-2442 Republican Candidate | On the Republican side, liber- a l c h a l l e n g e r Paul N . McCloskey Jr., a California wngressman, ilrew 52 per cent of the vote in Hiinover, N.H., lame of Dartmouth College, and 37 -per cent of the vote in Durham, N.H., site of the University of New Hampshire. McCloskey drew 20 per cent of lis presidential bid · five days later. In the Democratic raci In New Hampshire, McGovern received 79 per cent of the vote In kanover ' and 69 per cent' in Durham. Statewide, McGovern received 37 per cent °' ' na vote. In Florida, McGovern garnered a majority of tire votes cast in precincts near Florida Slate University in Tallahassee and in three precincts in Gain- sville that include portions of Ihe University of Florida. Stale- wide, he received only 6' per cent of the vote. The bulk of the youth vote, however, was cast by white and blue collar workers, housewives, secretaries and other young nonstudents. While there are no hard statistics, many observers feel this vote did not go as heavily to liberal candidates as did the youth vote in college towns and cities. At present, there are 11 million young people enfranchised by the 26th Amendment and some 14 million 20-10-24-year- olds eligible this "year to cast their first votes for president. This 25 million youth bloc is included in a U.S. electorate of 140 million voters. Whether this bloc will in- le election is the statewide vole and dropped can, then they will too. "Young people are not likely to vole that much differenlly from older people, except for college youths," says Ranney.
