SALT LAKE CITY - Belize's head coach said a man who allegedly offered three of his players large sums of money to fix a Gold Cup match against the United States is already known to international soccer officials. The Belize players rejected the offer to "sell the game" and immediately told coach Ian Mork what had happened. Mork said Thursday he called a representative of CONCACAF, the federation of North and Central America and the Caribbean nations and organizer of the Gold Cup. The official showed the players a photo of a man already being monitored for trying to fix matches in other countries, and Mork said they confirmed it was the same man who had offered them money.

All right, the Malta summit did have one moment of, well, prickliness. It was over El Salvador, the little country where the guerrillas have been literally knocking on doors of the capital - despite more than $4 billion in U.S. aid to halt them. President Bush said that Moscow could be doing more to stop its hemispheric pals - Cuba and Nicaragua - from slipping weapons to the rebels. Notice the President didn't say the Soviets were still shipping arms to Central America. "They've told us they're not, and we believe them," Secretary of State James A. Baker 3d explained.

A group of Democratic state lawmakers wants the Casey administration to help keep Pennsylvania National Guardsmen out of Central America, and has introduced House and Senate resolutions to restore control of the National Guard to the states. The effort is part of a nationwide movement coordinated by the St. Louis Pledge of Resistance in Missouri, a group organized three years ago to protest U.S. military involvement in Central America. At issue is whether the states or the federal government decide how Guard units are used.

They appear satisfied, and they almost seem to be dancing into a police van as members of the Pledge of Resistance who linked themselves together by the wrists and refused to leave Independence Hall are arrested yesterday. Eight people were released on $1,000 bail after being charged with trespassing and other charges. "We tried to negotiate with them, but they wanted to be arrested," U.S. Park Ranger Robert Byrne said. The demonstrators were protesting against U.S. policy in Central America, Byrne said.

I have recently become quite concerned with the manner in which Americans view the situation in Nicaragua. Many seem to think that the Sandinista regime is involved in a democratic government. The Sandinistas base their policies on Marxist-Leninist ideology. The Sandinistas were trained in the 1960s in Cuba, Libya and in Palestine Liberation Organization training camps. Nicaragua has advisers from every Marxist-Leninist power in the world stationed inside its borders, most being from Cuba and East Germany.

Luis Ramos wants to go home to El Salvador. But he says that U. S. military aid to El Salvador and the U. S. military presence in Central America are ensuring that the conflict that drove him out of his homeland will drag on and on. Partly because of that belief, Ramos, a refugee who was granted political asylum in the United States this May, joined Saturday with about 100 demonstrators who maintain that the presence of American soldiers in...

Jeane Kirkpatrick's magical ability to weave truth from the frayed slogans of the Reagan administration showed once again in her "Blinders are off" column on March 30. The blinders are not off Mrs. Kirkpatrick. She does tell us that opinion polls in Central America "establish that solid majorities of Costa Ricans and Hondurans believe it would be better for Nicaragua and for themselves if the contras won. " I'd like to know how an accurate poll can be done in countries where many of the people don't have phones.
