Democratic front-runner Jimmy Carter lost to Senator Frank Church in Nebraska, but won by a slim margin in Connecticut. There were no clean sweeps on either side in yesterday's round of presidential primaries. President Ford beat Ronald Reagan in West Virginia to end the former California governor's winning streak at four. But Reagan turned around and beat Ford in Nebraska stay well ahead of him in the for national convention agates. On the Democratic side, Jimmy Carter beat Morris Udall in Connecticut and lost to Frank Church in Nebraska--by the thinnest of margins in both cases. Despite his pledge to enter every primary, Carter was not on the ballot in West Virginia. probably because state law requires that convention delegates be unpledged no matter how the presidential preference or "beauty contest" balloting turns out. Favorite son Senator Robert Byrd clobbered George Wallace by a margin of nine to one in West World News Digest .UNICH, West Germany (UPI)--German ice say a bomb exploded in the parking lot of the U.S. military American Forces Network Radio station in Munich last night, tearing the leg off the alleged bomter. The station said his target apparently was the radio buildings. Police say they are not ruling out the possibility the attack on the station was connected to protests over the death of an urban guerrilla found hanged in her cell Sunday. BONN, W.G. (UPI)--After talks with VW executives and union officals in Munich, the president of the United Auto Workers says the company has ruled out Columbus, Ohio as the site of its proposed plant. Leonard Woodcock says he was told the price of the plant was too high. HONG KONG (UPI)--The new Chinese premier charges the Soviet Union has been carrying out "infiltration and expansion" in southeast Asia since the U.S. departure from Indochina. At a banquet in Peking the premier strongly condemned what he called the Kremlin's "scheming activities." WASHINGTON (AP)--President Ford signed a bill yesterday restructuring the Federal Election Commission and restoring its power to release up to $3.8 million in government funds for money-starved U.S. presidential candidates. Ford, who said he opposes some provisions of the bill, will be the chief beneficiary. He has a pending request for S1.4 million in matching funds before the commission. His Republican challenger, Ronald Reagan, has requested $6C3,000. Among other presidential contenders, Jimmy Carter is on the books for $520,000 and Morris Udall for $386,000. Virginia. Ford 'collected a solid 56 per cent of the vote to win in West Virginia. He went to bed before learning that Reagan beat him by a margin of 53 per cent to 47 per cent in Nebraska. There was no Republican primary in Connecticut. Nebraska was Idaho Senator Frank Church's first primary, and four weeks of campaigning produced a narrow victory for him. He got 39 per cent of the vote to 37 per cent for Carter. The Nebraska ballot had the names of 11 Democrats on it, among them Hubert Humphrey and Edward Kennedy.who finished third and fourth respectively. But, they were far behind Church and Carter. Humphrey got seven per cent of the vote. Kennedy got four per cent. Reagan and Ford have now split the one dozen primaries they have faced each other in. But Reagan continues to lead in the delegate count. He has 423-to-334 for the President. It takes 1,130 delegate votes to win the Republican nomination. Carter has now won 12 of 15 primaries and has more than twice as many national convention delegates as any of challengers. Carter has 598 delegates. Next is Udall with 205. That's just three ahead of now-withdrawn candidate Henry Jackson, whose hopes to revive his campaign vanished with his thirdplace finish in Connecticut. President Ford BITTER PILL--Nebraska had to be a bitter pill for the President. He was miles ahead of Reagan in two sets of newspaper polls conducted in the last week of April, and he went all out to try to erase the memory of last week's Indiana loss with a midwestern victory in Nebraska. ARMED FORCES WEEK'76 HONOR AMERICA On August 4, 1790, Congress passed and George Washington signed a bill authorizing the construction of "ten boats" to guard the coastline against smugglers. Since the U.S. Navy didn't come into existence until 1798, the Coast Guard served as the nation's only navy for eight years. In the beginning, the Coast Guard was known as the Revenue Marine and later the Revenue Cutter Service. In 1915 it was given its present name. The Coast-Guard has a fleet of 250 ships, 160 aircraft and more than 2,000 small craft. Approximately 37,000 military and 6,000 civilian personnel serve in seagoing, aviation and shoreside assignments. Search and rescue is the Coast Guard's best known mission. The Coast Guard responded to 70,000 calls for assistance and saved 4,200 persons from death last year. Over 140,000 other persons were helped and $280 million worth of property was saved. Missions of the Coast Guard include life saving, icebreaking, law enforcement, aids to navigation, marine environmental protection, port safety, recreation boating safety, marine law enforcement and commercial vessel safety. Vessels and aircraft patrol the coasts of Alaska, the Pacific Northwest and New England. They maintain surveillance of foreign fishing activities and have a role in the conservation of ocean resources. Many foreign nations are requesting Ninformation about the U.S. Coast Guard. Foreign countries are asking about what and how missions are performed, about equipment, vessels, training and organization. The Coast Guard responded to requests in 1975, made through the U.S. Department of Defense, to conduct surveys in Iran, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the Barbados. The Coast Guard in Gitmo has billets for three officers and 16 enlisted men. Guantanamo's Coast Guardsmen are assigned to Fleet Training Group. Through 200 years of progress, the united States Coast Since 1954 the Coast Guard's Guard has remained dedicated to the high standards of mission in Citmo has been supplepreparedness needed to safeguard our country. In war menting the approximately 80 ship and peace, the Coast Guard is a vital link in the natriders at FTG.

Authorities said the tremor was 'the aftermath" of the quake that devastated northeastern Italy last Thursday night, leaving nearly a thousand persons dead. The Greek Meteorological Service said no damage or casualties were reported from yesterday's tremor. reported the quakes epicenter s in the Ionian Sea between Greece and Italy and about 240 miles west of Athens. Italian officials reported the quake jolted the southern Italian city of Taranto and rattled tall buildings as far north as Naples, where there were no reports of casualties or damage. Buildings shook throughout the Ionian islands and Peloponnesus, southern Greece. Zakinthos police advised residents to remain in the open during the night in case of other tremors. Police and army rescue teams were placed on alert. The Ionian quake registered 6.25 on the open-ended Richter scale, compared with 6.9 for the quake last Thursday in Italy. Western Greece is an earthquakeprone zone. Hundreds of persons were killed in a quake there in 1956. Last December a tremor left about 2,000 homeless and many are still living in temporary shelters. Shooting spree results in three deaths KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP)--A man took a rifle from a box and began firing at random into a lunchtime crowd on the city's main business street yesterday. Three persons were killed and two others were wounded before the gunman surrendered, authorities said. "The man was just standing there turning around with the gun," she said. "It sounded like a bomb was going off. We ran back in a store. Everybody was screaming," said Mrs. Rosco Vandergriff, one of the injured. Patrolman James Lewis said the gunman, identified by police as Robert Daniel Patty, 43, Knoxville, Red Cross. + The Good Neighbor. surrendered to him within minutes. No charges were filed immediately. "I was walking beat across Gay Street and heard the shots," Lewis said. "There were five or six of them. I ran across the street and the man surrendered to Third through sixth graders of the W.T. Sampson Elementary School yesterday had a chance to see and get involved with their parents' work. Not all the students got the opportunity to visit with their dad or mom, since some of the jobs turned out to be too sensitive, too dangerous or impossible, as in the case of the dads at Fleet Training Group who had to be at sea. For the children who couldn't be with their parents, the Navy and the Coast Guard came to the rescue. RMCM Grall and RMC Ross, among others, escorted these children to such places as the transmitter site, receiver site, ComNavBase briefing room and the visiting destroyer WASHINGTON (AP)--Government efforts to wipe out alleged racial and sex discrimination in the nation's building trades and trucking unions are ineffective, the U.S. Civil Rights Commission said yesterday. Despite numerous federal laws, court decisions and government programs, these unions "continue to restrict the employment opportunities of minorities and women," the commission said. It called for stricter enforcement measures. In a 291-page report, the commission made 15 recommendations for strengthening federal employment nnnt titv noarams. Most dealt me.

Lisa nevertheless kept herself busy learning something of her dad's job while helping him file papers in the circular file. referral unions, such as those in the construction and trucking industries that refer workers directly to employers through such means as hiring halls. General George Brown, chairman of Joint Chiefs, speaks for armed forces "This year, in the time traditionally set aside for Americans to honor the men and women of our armed forces, we of the armed forces reverse this practice of 26 years and salute America. It is fitting and proper that we honor America in this 200th anniversary of its birthday--a country so dedicated to the defense and preservation of the basic rights of the individual that it commands the loyalty and support of its own people and captures the imagination and respect of peoples in countries not so dedicated to individual rights. We of the military take pride in America. In America's goals of maintaining peace and preserving freedom lies our inspiration to serve. In this Armed Forces Week 1976, on behalf of all the men and women of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard, I join Americans, of all origins, in honoring and paying tribute to the greatest nation in the world."

OFF THE MAT by Mike Grogan If whenever she picked up a wedge Louise Herrin could have forgotten what it feels like to shank the ball. If Ann Hicks could have forgotten about the second nine holes. If the wind and bugs could have forgotten this is Gitmo. If my aunt had wheels she'd be a teacart. All in all, nothing really unexpected happened in the Ladies' Golf Championship that went on from Tuesday through Thursday last week, for Elaine McConnell has taken ownership of the tourney much as Nicklaus has the Masters. And that means that Louise Herrin is Elaine's Tom Weiskopf. It was another disappointment for Louise, who seems to make a habit of coming in second. But what made it even more frustrating for her was the fact that nobody in the tournament shot particularly good golf. Sure, the winds were heavy and the gnats happened to choose that week to be in full force to drive the golfers dingy, but it was the best opportunity Louise had had to dethrone Elaine, who ended up winning the championship for the fourth year in a row. Actually, losing to the indomitable Mrs. McConnell is no disgrace. She is far and away the best lady golfer on base with a handicap that the biggest percentage of golfers of either sex would like to have. She also holds the course record for ladies, having put together an even par 72 in 1974. This year Elaine once again played well enough to win despite the high scoring and came out 8 strokes ahead of Louise. It seemed possible that Ann Hicks, whose game is steadying, but not quite there, could make a respectable showing; and she would have if she hadn't been required to play the back nine. S Ann averaged 7 1/3 more strokes per day on the backside than she did on the front. There were side tournaments that went along with the main event. Connie Schwirtz came in best among the 9-hole players and Shirley Kania was the 9-hole, low-net champ. Val Karcher actually shot the best golf over the three days of 18-hole competition--according to her handicap, anyway. She was the 18-hole, low-net winner with a handicap score of 218, or an average net score of 71 per day. SHORT PUTTS: The men's scratch tournament will be held on the first two weekends in June. The 72-hole tournament will be flighted to give all players a shot at a trophy. Sign up at the golf course .The first Men's Association meeting was held last night. More on that later. .Guy "Killer" Teague shot one of the best handicap rounds ever seen on Gitmo. Saturday morning he fired a 79, or a net 58 with his 21 handicap, the first time he has broken 80. His green card will look a bit different next month. .And, don't forget the Jack and Jill this Sunday.

Castro would most likely come in August to coincide with Jamaica's independence anniversary, a member of the ruling Peoples National Party (PNP) said. Security Minister Keble Munn told Jamaica's House recently five Jamaican policemen traveled to Cuba earlier this year during the visit of Canada's Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau to compare Cuban and Jamaican security measures. Prime Minister Michael Manley of Jamaica has yet to formally announce when Castro might visit the English-speaking Caribbean island located just off the southeast tip of Cuba. Manley invited Castro to visit Jamaica during his trip to Cuba last July. A tentative date for Castro's visit had been placed for May 24, Jamaica's labor day. giveaway Six cans of cat food with one-yearold spayed female cat. Excellent table manners.
