    Background: GUATEMALA CITY, GUATEMALA -- GOV. NELSON A. ROCKEFELLER, ON A LOOK-AND-LISTEN TOUR OF LATIN AMERICA FOR PRESIDENT NIXON, SPED THROUGH GUATEMALA TUESDAY UNDER HEAVY SECURITY ON THE SECOND STOP OF HIS SCHEDULED 23-NATION TOUR.

    BECAUSE OF THE EXISTENCE OF A TERRORIST UNDERGROUND IN THE COUNTRY A U.S. AMBASSADOR, AND THE ARMY COLONEL AND NAVY CAPTAIN WHO HEADED THE U.S. MILITARY MISSION HAVE BEEN SLAIN BY TERRORISTS IN THE PAST 18 MONTHS--ROCKEFELLER AND HIS COMMITTEE OF EXPERTS SET ASIDE BUT FOUR HOURS FOR THEIR VISIT TO GUATEMALA.

    THE STATE DEPARTMENT IN WASHINGTON DENIED THAT ROCKEFELLER'S VISIT HAD BEEN CUT SHORT BECAUSE OF CONCERN FOR HIS SAFETY. BUT GUATEMALA CITY NEWSPAPERS UNANIMOUSLY CRITICIZED THE VISIT AS "TOO SHORT" TO ENABLE THE GOVERNOR'S GROUP TO EITHER SIZE UP THE LOCAL SITUATION OR FOR AN EXCHANGE OF OPINIONS.
