The director of the Pentagon's National Guard Bureau, in the first such explicit warning, has threatened to cut off money for a state's National Guard if a governor bars troops from being sent to Central America. Lt. Gen. Herbert R. Temple Jr. included the warning in a letter urging Ohio Gov. Richard F. Celeste to reconsider his refusal to allow Ohio guardsmen to participate in exercises in Honduras. Temple's letter bore Friday's date and its delivery to Celeste was reported earlier this week.
