MARAMBIO SPECIFICALLY RULED OUT A CO MUNIST- SUPPORTED GOVERNMENT HEADED BY A LEFTIST RADICAL OR A SOCIALLST. HE-SAID THE MILITARY HAD N'0 CL' EAR PLANS- EIT.WER FOR TAKING OVER THE: GOVERNMENT OR FOR RUNNING :I T, BUT WOULD FIND SOMEONE TO PUT INTO POWER AND A TE"AM OF EXPERTS TO SUPPORT HIM. PRESIDENT FREI HIMSELF BELIEVES THAT IF BY NEXT FEBRUARY OR MARCH A POPULAR FRONT CANDIDATE IS CLEARLY LEADING, THE ARMED FORCES WILL INTERVENE AT THAT TIME RATHER THAN FLOUT THE POPULAR WILL AFTER THE ELECTION. MARAMBIO ALSO CLAIMED TO HAVE RECEIVED CLEAR INDICATIONS FROM THE ARGENTINE MILITARY THAT ONLY PRE-EMPTIVE ACTION BY THE CHILEAN ARMED FORCES WOULD FORESTALL ARGENTINE INTERVENTION TO PREVENT A MARXIST GOVERNMENT IN CHILE. ALTHOUGH THE CHILEAN MILITARY IS PROUD OF ITS REPUTATION FOR BEING APOLITICAL, YOUNGER OFFICERS ARE COMING UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF EVENTS IN ARGEN- TINA AND PERU. IN ADDITION, LOW WAGES AND POOR EQUIPMENT HAVE INCREASED THE FEELING THAT THE CIVIL- IAN POLITICIANS ARE INDIFFERENT TO THE NEEDS OF THE ARMED FORCES.
