Guillermo Manuel Ungo, vice president of the Socialist International and the principal leader of El Salvador's unarmed leftist opposition, died in a hospital here Thursday of complications from surgery. Although he was a social democrat in a country long dominated by the military and extreme right, Ungo, 62, was a major figure in Salvadoran politics for more than 20 years.

The Reagan Administration continues to claim that there has been steady progress in El Salvador with regard to improvements in human rights and the advancement of the democratic process. Our recent delegation there, whose members also included Assemblyman Tom Bates (D-Oakland), Fathers Luis Olivares and Michael Kennedy of La Placita Catholic Church, Rev. Don Lewis of St. Edmund's Episcopal Church, Prof. Terry Lynn Karl of Stanford University and staff members from Proyecto Pastoral, found the situation very different from that assessment.
