An editor arrested in Chile over call for resignation

Chile's military government arrested Juan Pablo Cardenas, editor of the magazine Analisis, Tuesday night and ordered police to confiscate the latest issue of the opposition publication from newsstands.

The latest issue of the twice-monthly, which has a circulation of 30,000, appeared on Santiago streets Tuesday afternoon with a cover story claiming 75.4 percent of Chileans wanted Gen. Augusto Pinochet to step down from his 10 years of military rule. The magazine's cover title read: ''He must go.''

Mr. Cardenas spent 23 days in jail last October for an editorial criticizing Chilean armed forces for remaining in power too long.
