THE TIMES AND DEMOCRAT, Orangeburg, Thursday, December 23. 1982, Page 5a Democrats urge Reagan to seek Central American negotiations administration is supporting a Costa Rican-led initiative aimed in part at achieving an accommodation between those countries. 1 i I ill lf I Amercia," they said. "Those seeking to rule by coercion rather than consent reside on both extremes of the region's political spectrum." Deputy White House press secretary Irry Speakes said there would be no White House comment on the Democrats' statement. On El Salvador, the administration has opposed any negotiations with leftist guerrillas that would give them a role in the government.

This would amount to giving the guerrillas at the negotiating table what they have not been able to win on the battlefield, officials have said. They also point to the U.S.-backed March 28 elections in El Salvador as an example of that country's democratic development. On the tensions between Nicaragua and Honduras, the By ROBERT PARRY Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON Seventeen congressional Democrats urged President Reagan on Wednesday to seek negotiated solutions to the political and military troubles plaguing Central America. "The time has come to stop the killing and start the talking in Central America," the 17 mostly liberal Democrats said in a statement billed as "a Democratic alternative" to Reagan's policies in the region. The Democrat Michael Barnes, chairman of a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on Iatin America, said Reagan's "extreme approach is fostering not peace and democracy, but increased polarization and radicalization." They argued that since Reagan took office in 1981, civil wars in El Salvador and Guatemala have grown worse, the threat of war between Nicaragua and Honduras has increased, and democratic forces in leftist Nicaragua have lost influence.

"The ability to make a free and open choice of political allegiance is the essence of democracy, but it is becoming less and less possible to make such a choice in Central OODHAl GLASS DOOR MIRRORS -Enveloped Wrapped- For Christmas 10 OFF SALE 1294 Calhoun Dr. N.E,.

"I know she intended to be there." Police never had many clues to the disappearance of Leslie and her friends Mary Rachel Trlica, 17, and Julie Mosely, 9.

Investigators first assumed the girls had run away. A few days later after they vanished, a note mailed to Tommy Trlica, Mary Rachel's husband of six months, seemed to support that theory. "I know I'm going to catch it, but we just had to get away," the penciled note said. "We're going to Houston. See you in about a week.

The car is in Sears upper lot." Mary Rachel's name was misspelled, and FBI handwriting experts could not confirm if she had written the letter. But the car was where the note said it would be. Inside were gifts the girls had bought, and a pair of blue jeans Leslie had gotten out of layaway. The car was not dusted for fingerprints because officers did not think they were dealing with a crime. "I could have told you that night that they hadn't run away," Mrs.

Wilson said. "Leslie wanted to go to that party. And no 9-year-old is going to run off two days before Christmas. Everybody knows that. The families of the missing girls have sent 70,000 handbills with their daughters' photographs throughout the United States, Mexico and Canada.

They sent the pictures to 45 newspapers. They hired a private investigator, and followed up every tip from seers and psychics who claimed to know where the children went, or where their bodies could be By LAURA RICHARDSON Associated Press Writer FORT WORTH, Texas Leslie Wilson's presents are still in the attic of the small white frame house. The new clothes are out of style, and she is too old for the toys. Everything was bought for a 14-year-old girl who disappeared eight years ago while Christmas shopping. If she's still alive, Leslie is now 22.

Her little brother has grown up, married, and become a father. Her great-grandmother, who took care of her while her mother worked, is dead. Her Pekingese grew old and sick and had to be destroyed four years ago. But the gifts are still in the attic, and her mother, Judy Wilson, now 40, still hopes. "Would you please assist in our search for our children?" Mrs.

Wilson recently wrote to The Associated Press. "When I read in this morning's paper about President Reagan's Missing Children's Act, it gave me a new hope." The bill signed by Reagan in October permits parents to ask the FBI if the name of their missing child is in its computer files. If local police decline to enter the name, the act permits parents to do so on their own. "Oh, I dream about her quite often. I know that she hasn't changed," Mrs.

Wilson said, gazing at the last school picture of her daughter. "She'd be tall, and headstrong, spoiled, you know." Ieslie Renee Wilson set out with two friends on an afternoon of Christmas shopping at Seminary South shopping mall Dec. 23, 1974.
