Editor Pens For Censor Editorials By ROBERT BERRELLEZ GUATEMALA (AP) — The desk of Clemente Marroquin Rojas, peppery editor of the newspaper La Hora, is cluttered with unpublished antigovernment editorials. He turns out a new one every day. At the end of each he invariably adds a line: "Because I know this will not be approved for publication, may it serve to enlighten the censor." La Hora is the only newspaper with a censor in all Guatemala. The other newspapers, warned by the government not to publish anything critical of it, practice a form of self-censorship. When it came down to the fiery Marroquin Rojas, however, it was like asking Niagara to hush up. The editor represents one sector of resistance to a 6-months old military regime which many Guatemalans fear is turning into a long-playing dictatorship. "We have a brand new, bubbly volcano—right in the presidential palace," says a Guatemalan politician, now idle. "We're wondering just when it'll erupt." A taciturn, career military officer, Col. Enrique Peralta Azurdie, calls signals, as chief of government. The army stepped in March 30 to boot out President Miguel Ydigoras who was in the last stages of a six-year term, called by Guatemalans the most corrupt in their history. The army has shown no sign of relinquishing power. Col. Peralta once mentioned a period of two years before elections, but has not recently reaffirmed that. The government has undertaken administrative and fiscal reforms but there is widespread apprehension about accompanying measures that liquidated almost all vestige of constitutional guarantees, including the inviolability of home and person and the right of expression. People are living under a state of siege, a modified form of martial law. A new law says that after four years cotton growers must devote land to other crops to protect the soil. They contend the law will destroy their thriving business. Owners of sugar mills were ordered to pay an arbitrary price to cane growers after the Ministry of Agriculture could not solve the problem. In these and other measures, many Guatemalans have seen the fine hand of experienced politicians working with the military in the transition from a strong military machine to a powerful civilian apparatus of the future.
