Argentina to snub awards over honor for Timerman

The Argentina military government will boycott the presentation of the Maria Moors Cabot awards for inter-American journalism here tonight (Oct. 27) because one of the recipients is Jacobo Timerman, the exiled Buenos Aires publisher.

In his best-selling book ''Prisoner Without a Name, Cell Without a Window,'' Mr. Timerman chillingly details his 21/2 years of imprisonment and torture by the governing military junta. Argentina claims Timerman's account is not true.
