k Experts Fault AIDS Education Effort for Latinos
If projections made by U.S. health experts prove true, there may be as many Hispanic AIDS victims in 1991 as the total number of AIDS cases in the country today.

Bill to Reform 8(a)
The head of the Small Business Administration criticized June 5 a bill that would revise the federal program created to help minority-owned businesses by awarding them government contracts without competitive bidding.
In a hearing before the House Small Business Subcommittee to prepare the bill, SBA Chief James Abdnor advised against "hastily made” changes.
The legislation, proposed by Nicholas Mav-roules (D-Mass.), would limit involvement in the 8(a) a set-aside program by political appointees, remove limits imposed by SBA on the time a firm can stay in the program and impose business development standards to be met by program participants.
Wilfredo Gonzales, associate administrator of SBA, objected to the bill on the grounds that it "seeks greater government involvement in the affairs of private business.”

United States will have the incurable disease.
Hispanic health officials believe a four-year, seven-fold increase for Hispanics may be a conservative estimate unless major new education and prevention efforts reach the Hispanic communities most at risk
For blacks and Hispanics, the risk of getting the disease through heterosexual contact is about three times greater than that of whites, said Dr. James Curran, head of the CDC AIDS Task Force.
The disease is believed to be caused by HIV- human immunodeficiency virus-which is transmitted through sexual intercourse, intravenous drug use or blood transfusion. CDC figures for Hispanic males document 47%, or 2,364, of those diagnosed with AIDS as homosexual or bisexual.
The disease can also kill an entire family. Dr. Kenneth Castro, an epidemiologist for CDC, explained that cycle begins when an IV drug user shares infected needles and then passes the virus on to a heterosexual partner.
Infected females can then transfer the disease
Program Criticized
prises, David Morales, told Weekly Report he was generally in favor of the bill. Morales, however, did not favor having only federal career employees involved, charging it could cause "stagnation and inflexibility.”
Pena Even in Voter Survey
A June 9 poll showed Denver Mayor Federico Pefta, who is seeking a second term, even with his challenger, attorney Donald Bain, 47% - 47%.
Pefta trailed Bain in the city's May 19 primary, 37% - 42%, forcing a June 16 runoff. He was behind Bain by 22 points on June 1, at the start of the daily polling by The Denver Post and Newscenter Four television news
Every day the survey polled 400 different people considered most likely to vote.
Three television debates scheduled for June 13 and 14 may prove critical in deciding the race, according to Tom Nussbaum, Pena’s campaign manager.

SICC Sale Appears Set
The Federal Communications Commission granted June 2 the license renewal applications of 10 television stations owned by the Spanish International Communications Corporation. The decision clears the way for FCC approval of the stations’ sale to Hallmark Cards Inc.
“We hope the deal with Hallmark will be closed in the next 30 to 60 days,” said Norman Leventhal, SICCs Washington lawyer. Hallmark, with minor partner First Chicago Venture Capital, has bid $301.5 million for the 10 SICC stations.
The stations were denied renewal applications in January 1986 after the FCC ruled that they were controlled by Mexican media magnate Emilio Azc&rraga in violation of U.S. law that limits ownership of radio and television stations to no more than 20% foreign investment.
SICC’s five major stations are KM EX in Los Angeles, WLTV in Miami, KWEX in San Antonio, KFTV in Fresno and WXTV in Paterson, N.J. It also has low-power stations in Philadelphia, Denver, Bakersfield, Calif., Hartford, Conn., and Austin, Texas.


Illinois Allots$4 Million for Bilingual Foster Homes
The director of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services announced June 2 that his agency will spend $4.1 million to find bilingual homes for Hispanic children. DirectorGordon Johnson acknowledged that the department is in violation of a 1977 federal court order that requires bilingual foster homes for Hispanic children whose primary language is Spanish.
Because there are only 32 bilingual foster homes registered with the department in Chicago’s Cook County to serve about 300 Hispanic children in need of fostercare, nine out of 10 Hispanic children are assigned to
homes where foster parents speak only English. The court order allows Hispanic children to remain in English-speaking foster homes for up to 80 days when sufficient Spanish-speaking foster homes are not available.
Another90 bilingual foster homes in Cook County are available through Catholic Charities, Lutheran Family Services and other community agencies, according to Luis Barrios, a department administrator charged with monitoring compliance with the decree on bilingual foster homes.
Barrios told Weekly Report June 9 that “lack of knowledge in the Hispanic community
about the services offered by the department is the main reason we lack sufficient bilingual foster homes" Barrios added that the shortage is not limited to the Hispanic community.
Barrios said he will try to improve communications between the department and the community by working more closely with civic organizations, churches and the Spanish-language media
The decision to spend the$4.1 million was sparked by a lawsuit filed last January by the Cook County Legal Assistance Foundation that charged the department was in violation of the 1977 court order. - Richard Sayre
Hispanic AIDS Education Criticized

York-based Association for Drug Abuse Prevention and Treatment; are working to reach IV drug users who account for 35%, or 1,768, of the Latino AIDS cases nationwide.
The most common groups of men to infect women are drug users and bisexual men. “Our (Latino) men have sex with other men but do not identify with being gay or bisexual. They see it as an extension of their machismo,” said Arturo Olivas of Cara a Cara, a Hispanic AIDS project in Los Angeles

“Educational information must be put in a cultural context for Latino communities,” Castro said, adding that the message needs to vary even within the Hispanic community. He pointed out that West Coast victims are primarily Mexican American homosexual or bisexual males, while East Coast cases are largely Puerto Rican and IV drug users bisexuals and their partners
Gloria Rodriguez, a consultant for the New Jersey health department, has worked among IV drug users and their partners The Latinas most at risk are very young, with a fifth or sixth grade education and low on the socioeconomic ladder, she said. Change is slow among many of the women she works with who are in “stereotypical gender roles” - subservient and uninformed- she told a panel at the third International AIDS Conference in Washington, D.C., June 1-5.
Health workers such as Rodriguez and Juan Ramos of the National Institute of Mental Health see the use of Spanish, religion and
emphasis on the family as ways of targeting education programs to Hispanics.
But before there is AIDS education, there has to be money and organization. The U.S. government is expected to spend $766 million this year on AIDS research and education.
Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chairman Rep. Esteban Torres (D-Calif.) told Weekly Report the caucus wants “to see that allocated funds get into our community for research, education and training.” The U.S. Senate has proposed $77 million more for AIDS programs for the next fiscal year, $27 million of which would be for counseling in minority programs.
CDC has requested some $10 million in supplemental monies for AIDS education directed toward “people-of-color communities”
“We must educate Hispanic leadership,” agreed Rodolfo Balli Sanchez, chairman of the National Hispanic Family Against Drug Abuse, a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit organization.
The Office of Minority Health within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is beginning to do just that. On June 9, the office sponsored a minority AIDS leadership forum for organizations such as the League of United Latin American Citizens, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund and the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials.

The Catholic church is taking a role in providing hospital care for victims, setting up hospices for the dying, and counseling and consoling affected families.
While Catholic doctrine teaches that the only acceptable form of sexual activity is a monogamous relationship within marriage, church leaders are taking a lead in informing their members about the disease. AIDS task forces have been formed by the National Catholic Education Association and the U.S. Catholic Conference. _ Melinda Machado
Calif. Assembly Kills Bill Limiting Prop. 63
The California state Assembly killed June 4, by a vote of 4-26, a bill that would have made it more difficult for individuals to file lawsuits seeking to enforce the state’s constitutional amendment making English its official language.
The bill would have allowed lawsuits only against laws that were enacted 120 days after the amendment’s passage last November. The bill also would have prohibited monetary damages and shortened the time within which suits could be filed to 90 days.
Bill sponsor Elihu Harris(D-Oakland) urged fellow Democrats in the 80-member body to abstain from voting when Assemblyman Frank Hill (R-Whittier) threatened to mail 200,000 leaflets to voters informing them of Democratic support for the measure.
Medrano Concedes Loss
Chicago aldermanic candidate Ambrosio Medrano withdrew June 3 his lawsuit challenging the results of an April 7 runoff for Ward 25.
Medrano then conceded victory to Juan Soliz, the incumbent Ward 25 alderman. Soliz received 4,713 votes to Medrano’s 4,710 in the runoff-
3,000 Protest Jail Site
Nearly3,000 Latinos, including a California Hispanic state senator, assemblywoman and two Los Angeles councilors, marched June 8 in East Los Angeles to protest the proposed construction of a prison there.
The protesters paraded in opposition to a bill supported by Gov. George Deukmejian and currently awaiting a hearing by the Senate Appropriations Committee It would place a prison in the Crown Coach section of East Los Angeles. Frank Villalobos, co-chairman of the Coalition Against the Prison, said that it would be “too close to schools and residential areas” and near a toxic waste dump, contrary to state law.
The 1 1/2-mile march concluded with speeches by state Sen. Art Torres, Assemblywoman Lucielle Roybal-Allard and Los Angeles City CouncilmembersGloria Molina and Richard Alatorre.
Hisnanic Link Weekly Report


Tom Romero, guest columnist
Pena, the Underdog
In 1983, Federico Pefta was elected as the first Hispanic mayor in Denver history. Four years later, he is fighting for political survival. An incumbent whose popularity ratings sometimes reached 70%, he now faces a June 16 re-election runoff as the underdog against a political unkown, Republican attorney Tom Bain.
Bain outpolled him, 42% - 37%, in their first go-round. Four other candidates in the 2-1 Democratic city were eliminated. Now it’s Bain-Pefta mano-a-mano.
As recently as February, Pefta’s re-election seemed assured in spite of the fact that Denver, like other Western oil cities, was hurting economically. His image was tarnished some when two of his major projects, a new airport and a convention center -which after years of inertia appeared near fruition - became temporarily stymied by politically motivated requests for reconsideration. Then the police chief he had appointed resigned after admitting a relationship with a female subordinate.
Neither of the city's dailies - The Denver Post or Rocky Mountain News - endorsed him. Four years ago, in a campaign praised for its objective media coverage, he was backed by the News.
BIASED COVERAGE CHARGED
This time around, Pefta’s supporters are hopping mad over what they call biased coverage on the part of both papers. While Peha’s every sneeze is reported, they claim, Bain’s record as a lawyer for polluters and the privileged has gone virtually unexamined.
Pefta still retains support from the Rocky Mountain version of a Rainbow Coalition, but the excitement and almost Messianic spirit of his ’83 campaign is gone.
Hispanics represent 18% of Denver's population and 15.6% of its voters, not a sufficient bloc to overcome traditional white reluctance to support politicians of color. Denver is not San Antonio or Atlanta
While the 40-year-old former Mexican American Legal Defense , and Educational Fund lawyer has opened city government to previously disenfranchised groups, he hasn’t overloaded it with Hispanic appointees. This caused one downtown editor to comment to me that Pefta” didn’t even do much for Hispanics.”
Historically, Hispanic and black candidates running for major office in predominantly white big cities have been denied access to essential power and money bases and to the credibility which key editorial endorsements provide. Peha’s 51% - 49% victory in '83 would have been impossible if an establishment newspaper had not sent out the message to its readers that it was safe and smart to vote for him.
MUST BE ‘PERFECT SERVANTS’
His election also sent messages to Hispanic political hopefuls in other dominant white cities that the odds aren’t insurmountable. But now, as the Denver election comes down to its final days, their hopes are on hold.
The feeling remains that Hispanic public servants must be perfect servants to satisfy the suburban supporters they need to win, and that Hispanic and black politicians are measured by a different standard than are white ones. Based on his performance, Peha would be a cinch for a Second term if he weren’t Hispanic, they feel.
Accustomed by his life’s experiences to win against the odds, the athletic, Texas-born Pena still expects to pull this election out of the fire.
Hispanics elsewhere are awaiting the outcome with special concern - to see just how far the LT:S.’electorate has come in measuring their < mayoral candidates by performance and integrity ratherthan by their ethnicity or color. ‘ ' ’. ' , t , :

KILL THE MESSENGER: Latino leaders aren’t the only ones among us who get hate mail.
Hartford Courant reporter Efraln HemAndez covered the successful annual conference of the National Congress for Puerto Rican Rights, which was held in that city May 29-31.
He dutifully reported findings of an NCPRR report that 42% of all Puerto Rican families on the U.S. mainland live below the poverty level. And he quoted its conclusions that “When you considerthat some 60% of Puerto Rican families on the island are in a similar situation of poverty, the depression-like condition of the 6 million Puerto Ricans in both Puerto Rico and the U.S. becomes an economic disaster of epic proportions.”
Among the fan mail he received for covering the event was a letter from a registered nurse, who signed her name. She told him that Puerto Ricans “have no money but steal for narcotics^ and “are frightening to Ibok at while waiting for a bus.” Her solution was to send them all “back.”
The onesigned anonymously “Senior Citizen” told HemAndez to stop complaining, get off welfare, stop overpopulating and go back where he came from.
If the writer had included a return address, HemAndez could advise him (or her) that he was reporting, not complaining, haaa job, is single without apparent heirs, and is Hartford-born-and-raised.
HOT PANTS AND OTHER VALUABLES: A Miami clothier of sorts, who sold cut-rate dresses, suits and other fine apparel to some of the city's most influential attorneys and politicians from racks in his duplex, has been arrested for trafficking in stolen goods. Among the well-dressed and embarrassed local luminaries: County Manager Sergio Pereira, who had 15 of his suits impounded, and City Commissioner Rosario Kennedy.
In Pasadena, Texas, thieves looted $5,000 worth of goods from the home of Albert and Marisol HemAndez - three television sets, watches, “everything but the furniture,” said Marisol.
Then they took the booty to Star Pawn Shop in Houston.
Guess wh$re Marisol HemAndez works? Yes, indeed. At the Star Pawn Shop.
The culprits are now in jail and the TV sets are back in place.
COURTROOM DRAMA: Watching Geraldo Rivera in a courtroom can be almost as much fun as watching him on TV.
The Miami Herald reported June 4 that the superstar news personality caused one Miami judge who hadn’t used his gavel in years to all but pound dents in his desk.
Geraldo was the star witness in a cocaine trial resulting from his “Doping of a Nation” television report last September. But, according to the Heralds account, he “often ignored the frustrated questioners, turning instead to the jury, prefacing his answers, ’Ladies and gentlemen of the jury..
At one point, Rivera scolded a defense attorney before Judge Mel Grossman could respond to an objection. “You were overruled,” Rivera told the attorney. , ± a-
Geraldo was a New York lawyer before TV discovered him.
LISTS: On June 5, the Senate confirmed four presidential nominees to the board of directors of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, including the First Lady’s former press secretary. No, there are no Hispanics on the 10-member body.
THE BELIEVERS: Our New York correspondent Edward Ledesma checked out the new John Schlesinger film, “The Believers,” for us. It’s an occult movie drenched in santerla, starring Latinos Martin Sheen and Jimmy Smlts and set in Spanish Harlem.
Its potency is reflected by LedesmA’s report that the woman sitting in front of him in the viewi ng foom lost cootrpl’of. her bladder.

MIRO AND MIRA: Exhibits by Hispanic artists continue in the news.
The works of one of Spain’s most recognized artists - and a U.S. favorite - continue at New York’s Guggenheim Museum. Some 150 paintings, drawings and sculptures by Joan Mir6 can be seen through Aug. 23.
There are more works by Mir6 in U.S. museums, galleries and private collections than anywhere else in the world. Aside from national sources, the Guggenheim’s retrospective includes pieces from collections from various European nations
Some 75 never-before-seen pieces by Mir6 are on view this month in Palma de Mallorca, the Spanish city where the painter lived most of his life. Works include 45 oil paintings and 30 sketches or drawings found after Mir6 died in 1983.
The national Mira Art Tour closes its last engagement June 19 in Los Angeles On view are works by 33 U.S. Latino artists likened by one unaffected Los Angeles Times critic to the “revamped mariachi
music of the Los Angeles group Los Lobos."
Elsewhere, works by Nora Benites and Rosario Guerra are part of Rites in Media, an art exhibition at San Antonio’s Carver Gallery through June 29. Posters for Film, an exhibit of works created by the Division of Community Education in Puerto Rico from 1960 to 1979, remains at New York’s Museo del Barrio.

MARKETING ASSESSM ENTS: On Sunday, June 7, both The Miami Herald and The Los Angeles Times ran lengthy articles on Hispanic marketing growth and strategies.
The Times piece, “Ad Industry Learns to Say It in Spanish,” by staff writer Jube Shiver Jr., looks at the national picture but covers little new ground.
The Herald piece, “Sold on Spanish: Old powers play catch-up,” by staffer Celia Dugger, has a local focus and tells afascinating tale of Miamfs belated acknowledgement of the importance of the Hispanic market there.
A lengthy sidebar article, “Case Study: Beer distributor loses battle,” details how Cuba-born, U.S. -educated Carlos de la Cruz took over an Anheuser-Busch distributorshipthere in 1984-with no beersales experience-and built his share of the market from 31% up to 40%, mostly at the expense of Miller distributor Randy Moret, who recently sold out to another
Cuban American.
“Could you sell shoes on Eighth Street against a Latin salesman?” it quoted the frustrated Moret

At 8.8% of the population, Hispanic make up 14% of all people with AIDS. Whites are 60% and blacks 25%. U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop pre dicts that by 1991 , 250,000 people in the United States will have the incurable disease . Hispanic health officials believe a four year , seven-fold increase for Hispanics be a conservative estimate unless major new education and prevention efforts reach the Hispanic communities most at risk For blacks and Hispanics, the risk of getting the disease through heterosexual contact is about three times greater than that of whites, said Dr. James Curran, head of the CDC AIDS Task Force. The disease is believed to be caused by HIVhuman immunodeficiency virus-which is transmitted through sexual intercourse , intravenous drug use or blood transfusion . CDC figures for Hispanic males document 47% , or 2 ,364, of those diagnosed with AIDS as homosexual or bisexual . The disease can also kill an entire family. Dr . . Kenneth Castro, an epidemiologist for CDC , explained that cycle begins when an IV drug user shares infected needles and then passes the virus on to a heterosexual partner. Infected females can then transfer the disease Bill to Reform 8(a) Program Criticized ..L.. The head of the Small Business Admini,....stration criticized June 5 a bill that would. revise the federal program created to help minority-owned businesses by awarding them government contracts without competitive bidding . In a hearing before the House Small Business Subcommittee to prepare the bill, SBA Chief James Abdnor advised against"hastily made" changes. The legislation , proposed by Nicholas Mav roules (D-Mass.), would limit involvement in the 8(a) a set-aside program by political ap pointees, remove limits imposed by SBA on the time a firm can stay in the program and impose business development standards to be met by program participants. Wilfredo Gonzales, associate administrator of SBA, objected to the bill on the grounds that it "seeks greater government involvement in the affairs of private business." The executive director for the National Hispanic Association of Construction Enter prises, David Morales, told Weekly Report he was generally in favor of the bill. Morales, however , did not favor having only federal career employees involved , charging it could cause and inflexibility."

lllinoisAIIots$4 Million for Bilingual Foster Homes The director of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services announced June 2 that his agency will spend $4.1 million to find bilingual homes for Hispanic children. Director Gordon Johnson acknowledged that the department is in violation of a 1977 federal court order that requires bilingual foster homes for Hispanic children whose primary language is Spanish . Because there are only 32 bilingual foster homes registered with the department in Chicago's Cook County to serve about 300 Hispanic children in need of foster care, nine out of 1 0 His panic children are assigned to homes where foster parents speak only English. The court order allows Hispanic children to remain in English-speaking foster homes for up to 80 days when sufficient Spanish-speak ing foster homes are not available. Another90 bilingual foster homes in Cook County are available through Catholic Charities, Lutheran Family Services and other com munity agencies, according to Luis Barrios, a department administrator charged with monitoring compliance with the decree on bilingual foster homes . Barrios told Weekly Report June 9 that "lack of knowledge in the Hispanic community Hispanic AIDS Education Criticized continuedfrom page 1 York-based Association for Drug Abuse Pre vention and Treatment; are working to reach IV drug users who accountfor35%, or 1 , 768, of the Latino AIDS cases nationwide . The most common groups of men to infeCt women are drug users and bisexual men . "Our (Latino) men have sex with other men but do not identify with being gay or bisexual. They see it as an extension of their machismo," said Arturo Olivas of Cara a Cara, a Hispanic AIDS project in Los Angeles.

He pointed out that West Coast victims are prima rily Mexican American homosexual or bisexual males , while East Coast cases are largely Puerto Rican and IV drug users , bisexuals and their partners. Gloria Rodriguez , a consultant for the New Jersey health department, has worked among IV drug users and their partners . The Latin as most at risk are very young , with a fifth or sixth grade education and low on the socioeconomic ladder, she said . Change is slow among many of the women she works with who are in "stereotypic. al gender roles" subservient and uninformed-she told a panel at the third International AIDS Conference in Washington, D.C. , June 1-5 . Health workers such as Rodriguez and Juan Ramos of the National Institute of Mental H.ealth see the use of Spanish, religion and emphasis on the family as ways of targeting education programs to Hispanics. But before there is AIDS education , there has to be money and organization . The U.S. government is expected to spend $766 million this year on AIDS research and education . Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chairman Rep. Esteban Torres (D-Calif.) told Weekly Report the caucus wants "to see that allocated funds get into our community for research, education and training." The U .S. Senate has proposed $77 million more for AIDS programs for the next fiscal year, $27 million of which would be for counseling in minority programs. CDC has requested some $10 million in supplemental monies for AIDS education directed toward "people-of-color communities." "We must educate Hispanic leadership," agreed Rodolfo Balli Sanchez, chairman of the National Hispanic Family Against Drug Abuse, a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit organization . The Office of Minority Health within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is beginning to do just that. On June 9, the office sponsored a minority AIDS leadership forum for organizations such as the League of United Latin American Citizens, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund and the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials.

AIDS task forces have been formed by the National Catholic Education Association and the U.S. Catholic Conference. -Melinda Machado about the services offered by the department is the main reason we lack sufficient bilingual foster homes." Barrios added that the short age is not limited to the Hispanic community. Barrios said he will try to improve com munications between the department and the community by working more clos.elywith civic organizations, churches and the Spanish language media The decision to spend the $4.1 million was sparked by a lawsuit filed last January by the Cook County Legal Assistance Foundation that charged the department was in violation of the 1977 court order. -Richard Sayre Calif. Assembly Kills Bill Limiting Prop. 63 The California state Assembly killed June 4, by a vote of 4-26, a bill that would have made it more difficult for individuals to file lawsuits seeking to enforce the state's con stitutional amendment making English its official language . The bill would have allowed lawsuits only against laws that were enacted 120 days after the amendmenfs passage last November . The bill also would have prohibited monetary damages and shortened the time within which suits could be filed to 90 days. Bill sponsor Elihu Harris(D-Oakland) urged fellow Democrats in the So-member body to abstain from voting when Assemblyman Frank Hill (A-Whittier) threatened to mail 200,000 leaflets to voters informing them of Democratic support for the measure.

Tom Romero, guest columnist Pen a, the Underdog In 1983, Federico Peiia was elected as the first Hispanic mayor in Denver history. Four years later, he is fighting for political survival. An incumbent whose popularity ratings sometimes reached70%, he nowfacesaJune 16 re-election runoff as the underdog against a political unkown, Republican attorney Tom Bain. Bain outpolled him, 42%-37%, in their first go-round. Four other candidates in the 2-1 Democratic city were eliminated. Now ifs BainPena mano-a-mano. As recently as February, Pena's seemed assured in spite of the fact that Denver, like other Western oil cities, was hurting economically. His image was tar nished some when two of his major projects, a new airport and a convention center which after years of inertia appeared near fruition became temporarily stymied by politically motivated requests for reconsider ation. ' Then the police chief he had appointed resigned after admitting a relationship with a female subordinate . Neither of the city's dailiesThe Denver Post or Rpcky Mountain News-endorsed him. Four years ago, in a campaign praised for its objective media coverage, he was backed by the News. BIASED COVERAGE CHARGED This time around, Pena's supporters are hopping mad over what they call biased coverage on the part of both papers. While Pena's every sneeze is reported, they claim, Bain's record as a lawyer for polluters and the privileged has gone virtually unexamined. Pena still retains support from the Rocky Mountain version of a Rainbow Coalition, but the excitement and almost Messianic spirit of his '83 campaign is gone. Hispanics represent 18% of Denver's population and 15.6% of its voters, not a sufficient bloc to overcome traditional white reluctance to support politicians of color. Denver is not San Antonio or Atlanta. While the 40-year-old former . Mexican American Legal Defense , and Educational Fund lawyer has opened city government to previously . disenfranchised groups, he hasn't overloaded it with Hispanic appointees. This caused one downtown editor to comment to me that Pen a" didn't even do much for Hispanics." Historically, Hispanic and black candidates running for major office in predominantly white big cities have been denied access to essential powenlnd money bases and to the credibility which key editorial endorsements provide. Pena's 51% 49% victory in '83 would have been impossible if an establishment newspaper had not sent out the message to its readers that it was safe and smart to vote for him. Sin pelos en. /a lengua KILL THE MESSENGER: Latino leaders aren't the only ones among us who get hate mail. Hartford Courant reporter Efraln Hernandez covered the suc cessful annual conference of the National Congress for Puerto Rican Rights, which was held in that city May 29-31. He dutifully reported findings of an NCPRR report that42% of all Puerto Rican families on the i.J.S. mainland live below the poverty level. And he quoted its conclusions that "When you consider that some 60% of Puerto Rican families on the island are in a similar situation of poverty, the condition of the 6 million Puerto Ricans in both Puerto Rico and the U.S. becomes an economic of epic proportions." Among the fan mail he received for covering the event was a ' letter from a registered nurse, who signed her name. She told him that Puerto Ricans "have no money but steal for narcotics" and "are frightening to look at while waitil1g for a bus." Her solution was to send them all"back."
