Friday, July 5, 1974 Ukiah Dally Journal, Uklah, Calif.—0 me* ihre^toftt Argentina BUENOS AIRES (UPD - A >: Uterine militant group threatened today to take up ami uT , to first sign of posdble turmoil to divided ArgenUna foUowlng an emotional itate funeral,for Juan Domingo Peron. The Montoneroa, a former guerrilla group that put away ita weapons after Peron returned from exile, said it would resume urban warfare unless the "power vacuum" left by the president 's death was filled. The threat came hours after Lt. Gen. Leandro Anaya, the army commander, swore by the "body and immortal soul" of Peron to support the the late leader 's widow, Maria Estela, Latin America 's first woman president. The general made his remarks at a funeral in which tens of thousands of Argentines braved heavy rain to shout final farewells to the 71-year-old strongman and shower his caisson-borne casket with flowers. The body of Peron, who dominated Argentine political life for three decades, was placed in a chapel on the grounds of the suburban presidential residence following a 10- mile funeral procession. It was the largest funeral in Argentina since the death of Peron's popular second wife, Eva Duarte, who died of cancer in 1952 after helping her husband win the support of the nation's working class. Mrs. Peron, the president's widow and successor, led the funeral cortege, which was protected by 8,000 armed troops. There were no major incidents. In a paid announcement published in Buenos Aires newspapers, the Mohtoneros demanded an "immediate formal agreement of the political and social forces interested in national liberation" to fill the void, which they say resulted with Peron's death Monday. The militant organization said a failure to guarantee Peron's ideals would lead to an '"'arduous, struggle to reach national and social liberation." The Montoneroa group was formed five years ago to battle against the former military government of Lt. Gen. Juan Carlos Ongania. The group ceased commando operations last October when Peron assumed the presidency for the third time. Peron, who ruled Argentina from 1946 to 1955, returned last summer from nearly 18 years in exile. Despite attempts to unify the country, his term as president saw increasing clashes between his leftist and rightist supporters. Judge orders release of KPFK manager LOS ANGELES (UPD — , Radio station manager Will Lewis, jailed for refusing to give the FBI the original of a tape recording by Patricia Hearst, has been ordered released from federal prison by Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas. Douglas 'Thursday ruled that "substantial First Amendment claims" had been raised on Lewis' behalf, enough to justify his release on his own recognizance. At the federal correctional institution on Terminal Island here, officials said . they were waiting for a written order that would set Lewis free. The order was expected to come today. . , Lewis, the 42-year-old general manager of station KPFK, was jailed for. contempt by U.S. District Court Judge A. Andrew Hauk June 19, after he refused to surrender the tape or answer grand jury questions. The recording, found in a rubbish area behind the station June 7, contained messages from Miss Hearst and Sym- bionese Liberation Army members William and Emily Harris. The station turned over a copy of the tape to the FBI, but withheld the original, which authorities said they needed to check for fingerprints and to try to trace where it came from. Lewis argued that giving up , the tape would turn KPFK into an arm of law enforcement, endangering the free flow of information from persons who would no longer trust-the How's the weather?
