Page M-THE HERALD, Mrs. Peron's Support Dwindles PLAYING ON Grandpa's farm can work up quite a thirst so Damon Eaton, 4, and his sidekick, Ahab, a 6-year-old chimpaniee take time out from their monkey business to Telephoto share a cool lemonade. Anab is being raised by Gene Clark, Damon's grandpa, and the two often play together when Damon visits the farm as he did this week. Historic Revolutionary Battle Re-Enacted By RICHARD M. HARNETT SAN MATEO, Calif. (UPI) British regiments are drilling on the greens, and not far away the Americans are arming themselves with muskets, according to reports circulating in the villages and towns on the San Francisco Peninsula. But the "troops" are all high school students. More that 2,000 of them are preparing for a reenactment of the historic Battle of Lexington and Concord, April 18. The 1975 version of the famous battle that started the Revolution 200 years ago will be a one-third scale reenactment of the campaign of April 19,1775. "We think people should really get involved in the history of our country and what it is all about," says Larry Hyink, a social studies teacher who is responsible for the big Bicentennial event. "This thing involves 2,200 kids," says Hyink. "The mothers of the 750 British troops are busy sewing their red coats. We have 250 people just to referee the battle." Every detail of the original battle has been thoroughly researched, down to the names of the participants. "Nearly every student knows who he represents," Hyink says. The Minutemen are talking about "one if by sea, two if by land." They are practicing the technique of loading and firing the patch and ball musket. Hyink said his son, a history major at San Francisco State University and a simulation game enthusiast, came up with the idea for a live replay of the Revolutionary battle. "A lot of people play board games. We decided to move the simulation game off the card table and into reality," says Hyink. "This is really a game. We don't know yet who will win." Assembling before dawn on a high school campus representing Boston, a column of British Redcoats will march toward the "Lexington Green" on another campus. It was at Lexington Green that the first shot of the Revolution was fired. About 50 Minutemen will be waiting to engage in that valiant effort against the British army. As the relief columns of British move toward Concord — another high school campus — for the second major confrontation of the day, the smaller groups of militiamen will gather, as they did in the Middlesex villages, some with fifes and drums playing, to do battle for freedom. ByPHILNEWSOM UPI Forefgn News Analyst Nothing but the name Peron keeps in power the frail, reclusive woman who serves as the president of Argentina. Now, as unrest mounts and her support dwindles, there is doubt that she can last out the year, let alone the normal term in office which should end in 1977. It is not yet two years since the Peronistas returned to power in Argentina's first elections since the military take-over in 1966. And it is not yet a year since the death of one-time dictator Juan D. Peron thrust his wife, Isabella, a former cabaret entertainer, unprepared into the presidency. On April 6, on a lonely dirt road near Buenos Aires' international airport, police found the bodies of six young men, apparent victims of a rightwing execution squad identified with the Argentine anti-Communist Alliance. Their deaths brought to at least 137 the number of persons killed since the first of the year in warfare between Argentina's political right and left. Victims have included labor leaders, students, professors, policemen, soldiers and clergymen. A peculiarity of this warfare is that elements on both sides proclaim themselves to be Peronistas, although one of the most feared is the People's Revolutionary Army, a Marxist group aligned with neither. Among the first to declare their loyalty to Mrs. Peron after her husband's death were the powerful unions in the General Confederation of Workers, an umbrella that covers some three million members. The Confederation was the child of Juan Peron in his rule more than 20 years ago and remains the backbone of the Peronist movement. And it is the unions now who are losing faith in Peron's widow as her circle of advisers has narrowed and the unions have felt more and more excluded from government. Argentina has some of the richest farm land in the world. Her oil reserves are sufficient to make her virtually selfsufficient at a time when much of the world is threatened with an energy shortage. Shops are filled and the people remain among the best dressed in the hemisphere. But it is an economy built on inflation which in the last year hit 50 per cent and upon deficit budgets which lead the government to print more paper money and to raise wages by decree to cover ever-mounting prices. It leads businessmen to keep two sets of books, one geared to government controls and the tax collector and the other to the black market where manufacturers are forced to buy their material. For advice, Mrs. Peron has leaned heavily upon her minis? ter of social welfare, Jose Lopez Rega, a one-time police corporal and practicing astrologer who also served her husband and continues to serve her as presidential secretary.
