The National Guardsmen who raped and killed four American church workers will not be pardoned under a government amnesty program, El Salvador's Supreme Court ruled in a decision made public Tuesday. The ruling rejects a request from two of the five convicted killers that they be freed as part of a blanket amnesty sponsored by President Alfredo Cristiani and approved last March by the Legislative Assembly, which is controlled by Cristiani's right-wing political party.

William J. Bennett is correct when he frets about there being "a coarseness, a callousness, a cynicism, a banality and a vulgarity to our time" ("The Eggheads of the GOP," by Nina J. Easton, Aug. 21). What other words could describe the Administration that used a free country's tax dollars to subsidize a decade's worth of murder, terror and rape in El Salvador? I'm sure that the minute Bennett sets straight these low-income, willful, unmarried (gasp!) girls, he'll move on to study his former co-workers' complicity in human rights abuses--that is, as soon as someone tosses him $3.1 million to do so. SARAH LAWRENCE Los Angeles Is Bennett the same one who almost single-handedly screwed up the entire educational system of the country under President Ronald Reagan?
