Carmen Hertz wants Chileans to think these days of her late husband and the 71 others who were executed in a military sweep through four northern Chilean towns in October, 1973, a month after Gen. Augusto Pinochet's coup. Hertz says that Wednesday's presidential plebiscite, in which Pinochet seeks eight more years in power, ought to be in part a referendum on the human rights abuses she says began with the coup itself and continued, if on a lesser scale, throughout the general's 15-year rule.
