President Augusto Pinochet announced today that he is allowing all Chile's exiles, officially numbered at around 300, to return home. The lifting of the exile orders would cover leaders of the Marxist government of Salvador Allende, toppled in the 1973 coup, including Allende's widow, Hortensia Bussi, and the head of the Chilean Communist Party, Luis Corvalan. "The problem has been totally solved. All prohibitions (on entry) have been lifted, all of them," Pinochet told journalists.

A day of protest called by union leaders against the killings of three Communist Party members drew negligible support Thursday in Chile's capital. Only minor skirmishes between police and student demonstrators at three university campuses and the dousing of a group of labor leaders by a water cannon gave evidence of active support for the protest gesture. For two years, Chile has experienced a succession of such days of protest against President Augusto Pinochet's military regime.

President Augusto Pinochet, declaring the start of "a new political age" in Chile, on Thursday lifted the forced exile of more than 400 government opponents, including the family of the Marxist president whom Pinochet deposed in a bloody coup 15 years ago. A few hours after Pinochet's announcement, Maria Isabel Allende, daughter of the late President Salvador Allende, arrived on a flight from Buenos Aires to an emotional welcome by about 100 friends.

President Augusto Pinochet, Chile's military ruler, is described by close associates as euphoric over the results of his government's hardened repression against political dissent. "He is like a kid with a new bicycle," said one person who has been in frequent contact with Pinochet over the last four months. During that time, the regime has toughened its anti-communist stance and virtually closed off contacts with the political opposition.
