Approved For Release 2007105/08: CIA-RQP83-003858000200120007-1 29 October 1981 MEMORANDUM T0: Deputy Chief, Paraguay Bureau INFO: Chief ELAD, Prod Group SUBJECT: Review/Update of Paraguay Bureau Publications 1. Since the last publications review of March 1981 the following changes have taken place: 2. ARGENTINA a. Buenos Aires AMBITO FINANCIERO was tried for 3 months and found to be unproductive and dropped from coverage. b. The weekly magazine VISION was found to be unprod~. ctive and was dropped from coverage. c. The weekly LA SEMANA was sampled for 3 months and found to be marginally productive. LA SEMANA and a similar weekly, SIETE DIAS, which only occasionally carry interviews with political personalities are easily available from local newsstands, and bureau receives advanced notice from press services or other sources and can buy isssues of interest on an ad hoc basis when items of interest are carried. Accordingly, LA SEMANA was not put on regular coverage. d. The weekly GENTS was added to bureau coverage. It is available from local suppliers. e. Three monthlies--the political journal A FONDO, the Peronist monthly LINEA, and the mouthpiece of tightest politicain Admiral Massera CAMBIO--were ordered for 1-year subscriptions, though no regular issues and only one back issue have yet been received. f. The daily Buenos Aires COPdVICCION was received for a few weeks from local suppliers, but they have since ceased to import the paper. At this time, bureau has no plans to seek direct subscription from the publisher, since Argentine coverage is ample. ~~.` BOLIVIA: No changes. Approved For Release 2007/05108: CIA-RDP83-003858000200120007-1 ? ? 4. BRAZIL a. Due to delayed and sporadic reception o.f magazine VEJA through local Paraguayan newsdealers, bureau wrote directly to VEJA in July requesting Air Mail subscription.

At suggestion of ELAD Brazilian officer Bureau has begun a 1-month sampling of Rio e aneiro dailies ULTIMA HORA, :and TRIBUNA DA IMP.RENSA -.~1 and the weekly HORA DO POVO were placed on 1-month trial subscriptions. U.S Consulate in Rio is helping to air mail them. c. The U.S. Embassy in Brasilia has been unable to procure three left-leaning papers suggested by Renier-- VOZ OPERARIA, VOZ DA UNIDADE and CORREIO SINDICAL. We plan to ask the Rio Consulate's help. a. The biweekly COSAS has become available from local news distributors and has been added to regular coverage. 6. PARAGUAY a. The biweekly SENDERO, published by the Catholic National Episcopal Conference, was added to regular coverage in September. a.
