Est. 1925 Wave of Purges, Arrests Feared By Portuguese OPEN DAILY 10-10; SUNDAYS 1-7 SUNDAY - MONDAY ONLY! LISBON, Portugal--Civilian politicians and some moderates in the military expressed fears Saturday of a wave of purges and arrests after a three-man military junta took charge of Portugal. The Armed Forces Movement--AFM-- the officers, organization that seized control after ousting the long-time rightist dictatorship 15 months ago, gave unprecedented authority Friday to the collective leadership of Premier Vasco Goncalves, President Francisco de Costa Gomes and national security head Otelo Saraiva de Carvalho. The 240-member AFM issued a stern warning to dissidents both within and outside its ranks. * * * THE CENTRIST popular Democrat Party, the nation's second largest political group, immediately declared that the power shift was illegal and denounced it as "usurping of constitutional power." Carvalho was in Cuba visiting Prime Minister Fidel Castro and the two appeared on nationwide television there Saturday as Castro declared: "The Portuguese revolutionary movement can rely on our firmest support in whatever circumstance." 1 Castrogin the ceremonies commemorating the 22nd anniversary of the start of his revolution, told Carvalho '"we are brothers in the struggle" against capitalism and fascism. Carvalho agreed, praising Cuba as an example "of the true independence" which he said was the goal of the Portuguese army's uprising in April 1974. FIVE AFM members, reportedly op-, posed to the power switch and Portugal's leftward course in favor of the Soviet-line Communist party, stayed away from the meeting endorsing the junta. Portuguese newspapers, under Communist domination, called them "the five dissidents." They included Foreign Minister Maj. Ernest Melo Antunes, one of the architects of the original AFM program which promised a parliamentary democracy and ·free press. All five had been members of the Revolutionary Council, the 30-man .body of officers that was Portugal's top authority before being downgraded to an advisory body. The AFM said it named the three-general junta because of a problem of "revolutionary discipline" and implied it had shown up "in the very heart of the Armed gforces Movement." The junta was expected to come down hard on civilian dissidence since the Socialist party, the nation's biggest, and the centrist Popular Democrats, the second largest, quit Goncalves' government protesting that it was turning into a leftist dictatorship. Socialist leader Mario Scares, who has called for Goncalves, ouster, said in an interview with two French broadcasting stations that the creation of the junta may be inconsistent with a previous agreement between the army and political parties violence as Roman Catholics scheduled a rally today in the northern conservative city of Braganca and the Popular Democrats planned a demonstration on the island of Madeira. Goncalves has emerged as the possible strong man of the triumvirate. A leftist theoretician with orthodox Communist leanings, he is expected to continue to guide the revolution's course toward the goal of a classless society. Goncalves, an intense and convinced Marxist, is generally considered the father of the Portuguese revolution. He is also the most controversial figure in the ruling Armed Forces movement because of his strong Communist sympathies, which have deeply split the military as well as the political forces in the country. The fiery, erratic premier is said to have been the main organizer and coordinator of the military movement launched on April 25, 1974, against the 50-year-old right-wing dictatorship and as such is difficult to cast aside. A 54-year-old army engineer, Goncalves served in Goa, Portugal's first colony to win independence, as well as in the African colonies of Angola and Mozambique. A long-time opponent of the former dictatorship, Goncalves took part in the abortive military uprising against Premier Antonio de Oliveira Saiazar in 1961. He was awarded a number of high military decorations by the former dictatorship. His close links with the Communist party are said to date back a number of years to his clandestine opposition to the Saiazar regime.

Ktt CARVALHO, A 38-YEAR-OLD brigadier general and nationalistic leftist, was mentioned as a possible vice premier as well as keeping control of the nation's security force, the Continental Operation Command. Carvalho, the flamboyant chief of Portugal's security forces, is one of the leaders of a move toward "direct democracy," which would bypass the political parties. Carvalho is a short, stocky man with a commanding presence and a penchant for astonishing his listeners. During the current crisis, he serenely flew off to Cuba for a visit. It is said that the plan for creating Portugal's new ruling triumvirate was already decided upon before his departure. Somewhat volatile in his political views, Carvalho gets along with the party leaders although he'openly disdains their parties and openly favors "people's power." He is said to have come under the recent influence of an anarchist movement called the Revolutionary Proletarian party -- Revolutionary Brigades, which calls for setting up civilian armed militias "to defend the revolution." He comes from a family of actors and at one time toyed with an acting career.

The $6.34 billion in the bill would be spent over the next 14% months and includes $3.08 billion for the Treasury Department, §2.01 billion for the Postal Service, $80.6 million for the executive office of the president and $2.44 billion for a variety of independdnt agencies, ranging from the Civil Service Commission to the Commission on the Review of the National Pol. icy Toward Gambling. The bill now goes to a conference with the House to work out the $73.4-million difference between the versions passed by the two houses. The Senate passed a S37.5-billion appropriation bill Saturday with virtually no debate, following an hour's discussion of two amendments costing $14 million. The bill, passed on a 73-7 vote and sent to conference with the House, provides money over the next 14Vz months for 14 federal agencies. The total is about $700 million less than the Ford administration's request. The biggest shares of the money will go to the Veterans Administration, S22 billion: Department of Housing and Urban Development, $8.84 billion; National Aeronautics and Space Administration, $4.47 billion and the Environmental Protection Agency, $965 million. The Senate overrode its Appropriations Committee and rejected a $4.5-million cut in HUD's budget for management of housing programs.
