Cold could be cause of shuttle explosion


(UPI) -- Investigators are checkingg whether cold may
ve caused the rupture in a
rocket booster before the
shuttle Challenger exploded.
The temperature at
Challenger's launch on January 26 was 38 degrees.
The previous low temperature for a shuttle launch was 51
degrees.
The shuttle blew up and all
seven astronauts were killed in an explosion a little more than a minute after take off.
A Noble-winning physicist,
Richard Fevnman, mentioned


the cold yesterday during a meeting of the presidential
coTnission investigating the disaster. Feynmam dropped
some synthetic rubber used in the o-rings to seal the rockets into ice water. It lost its resiliency.
Commission chairman William
Rogers says the question of the cold weather will be discussed in greater detail tomorrow or Friday at the Kennedy Space Center.
Navy divers may have found the remains of Challenger's unfired satellite rocket

booster. It was blown clear
of the shuttle during the explosion.
The divers were lowered to the floor of the Atlantic at a depth of 120 feet yesterday 18 miles east of Cape Canaveral.
Neither the Navy nor the
space agency are saying what they saw. The fact the divers were sent down at all indicates a strong possibility the rocket was
found.

Reagan will support whoever wins Philippine election


(UPI) -- President Reagan says he will support whoever wins the Philippine election because protecting U.S. bases on the islands is the most important thing.
Last night at a news conference, Reagan sidestepped accusations of vote fraud and violence by President Marcos' government, even though a U.S. delegation returned home outraged at the
*eUd committed by Marcos'

Reagan is sending veteran negotiator Philip Habib to the Philippines to, as Reagan put it, "help nurture the hopes and possibilities of democracy." Reagan told Habib to meet with political leaders, church officials and other key figures in the islands.
Asked about a date for the second superpower summit, Reagan said there is still no
agreement. He said he doubts the Soviets are trying to get out of another meeting. He said he mentioned one date
and the Soviets mentioned another, but the U.S.


rejected it because it was too close to the U.S. congressional elections.
Reagan also discussed minority hiring quotas. The president said the time has
come for a "color blind society." He called for abandoning the use of minority hiring quotos to remedy discrimination in the workplace. That is even though 100 black Republicans sent him a letter urging him
to continue affirmative action programs. The president also warned


he will veto any tax increase passed by Congress. At the news conference, he pushed the idea of slashing the deficit by reducing spending.
Vice President Bush got a vote of confidence from the president. Reagan said Bush is "part and parcel" of every important decision.
Reagan also displayed some righteous indignation over the infamous $640 military toilet seat. He said it never existed. Reagan said it was a molded cover for the entire toilet system.


U.S. ships maneuver near Libya


(UPI) -- U.S. aircraft carriers have returned to the waters off Libya and American warplanes may have begun flights in the area.
The carriers U.S.S. Coral Sea and U.S.S. Saratoga are
within striking distance of the Gulf of Sidra, which Libyan Leader Moammar Khadafy claims for Libya. President Reagan last night denied Khadafy's claim to the gulf,


but said he did not know if the U.S. ships would be in it.
The U.S. Sixth Fleet filed a notice Sunday that planes from the aircraft carriers may be in the area for maneuvers. There is no confirmation yet if they are.
This is the second time within a month that U.S. Navy forces have been in the area.

January 30, 1986

Dear Captain Condon,

I am sorry to have missed you during our brief
visit to Guantanamo but I am pleased that you had your priorities straight and that your wife is once again enjoying good health.
We had a good visit and an outstanding overview of Guantanamo Bay and its important capabilities. I especially appreciated the fine job Captain MacPherson did in hosting us and Captain Gallen's efforts as our base tour guide. The helo tour with Colonel Adams was
impressive. Needless to say, one comes away from a visit at Guantanamo Bay with heightened respect for those of you who man this critical post.
My session with your personnel in McCalla hanger
was the best interchange I have enjoyed with the troops since I took command of the fleet. You have a heads-up group of people.
I look forward to a future visit when I can spend a little more time with you.
My best regards to your entire command.

Sincerely

C. A. H. Trost
Acniral, U.S. Navy

Service academies: making leaders


(AFPS) -- You have gained some leadership skills during your enlisted service in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps or Coast Guard. You think you have the makings of a good officer. Maybe a service academy is for you. Each year, some 350 enlisted men and women from the active and Reserve components are selected to enter one of four service academies, the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y.; the U.S. Naval Academy, Annapolis, M.; the U.S. Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, Colo.; and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, Groton, Conn.
The academies are the under-graduate colleges of the services. They offer a variety of majors, ranging from electrical engineering to history to English. However, unlike those of other colleges and universities, the curriculums at the service academies are geared to motivating and training career military officers.
"The (Air Force) academy's cadets go on to be pilots, navigators, scientists, engineers, support officers, astronauts, lawyers and doctors," explained Lt. Col. Bill Walisch, an instructor at the U.S. Air Force Academy.
"But they've trained to be officers first and foremost...No matter if the lesson is Shakespeare, quantum mechanics, organic chemistry or astronautics, the professor...can relate the lesson of the day to the


career of an...officer." While attending an academy, these service members wear the rank of cadets or midshipmen. Like their academy peers who enter the service directly from civilian life, they are paid one-half a second lieutenant's or ensign's base pay, about $6,800 a year.
After completing a
demanding four-year program, these cadets and midshipmen are commissioned as second lieutenants in the Army, Air Force and Marine Corps, or as ensigns in the Navy and Coast Guard. Under an agreement
they sign before entering an academy, they serve at least five years of active commissioned service.
The academies' entrance
requirements are strict, and competition is fierce.
To be appointed as a cadet or midshipman, you must:
o be a U.S. citizen;
o be at least 17 years of
age, but not past your 22nd birthday on July 1 of your academy reporting year;
o show academic achievement;
o pass physical fitness and medical examinations;
o be unmarried, with no dependents;
o be of high moral character;
o demonstrate leadership potential.
Most applicants are
nominated for a service academy appointment by their congressman or senator. (The Coast Guard Academy does not base its selections on nominations and relies only on an applicant's high school


transcript.)
Some service members enter the academies through this nomination process. Admissions officials recommend that those interested in doing so contact their education offices for assistance.
However, most service members are appointed to an
academy through the military preparatory school program. Three military prep schools are designed to prepare
academy hopefuls for the academic and physical rigors they will confront once they get there.
Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen attend the U.S. Naval Academy Preparatory School at Newport, R.I.; soldiers, the U.S. Military Academy Preparatory School at Fort Monmouth, N.J.; and airmen, the U.S. Air Force Academy Preparatory School at Colorado Springs, Colo.
Prep schools offer demanding nine-month
curriculums of academics, athletics and military related training. Service members attending prep school receive the full pay and allowances of their military rank.
On completion of a prep school, service members are not automatically selected to enter a service academy; however, those who complete prep school with high standings have a good shot at an academy appointment.
For more information about preparatory schools and service academies, see your installation's education officer or career counselor.


Di sab ility b enefits and, eligibility


(Washington) -- Medical and other benefits provided by the Navy may be extended to an unmarried, dependent child over age 21 providing the child is suffering from a disability that existed prior to the 21st birthday and which renders the child totally incapable of self-support. The final determination for continuation of benefits due to incapacitation is whether or not the sponsor is providing greater than 50 percent support. If there is no possibility of the dependent ever becoming capable of self-support, this should be clearly stated in the documents submitted.
The head of the Benefits Eligibility Division of the Naval Military Personnel Command (NMPC) is the only person authorized to issue ID
cards to dependent children over age 21 who are incapable of self-supprt. The decision to authorize an ID card in such cases is based upon the degree of incapacity previously determined by the Naval Medical Command. To meet the requirements of federal statute, and to evaluate your child's case, the Commander, Naval Military
Personnel Command, requires the following information: a. A current medical/psychological evaluation conducted within the last twelve months. Include diagnosis and treatment regimen, assessment of psychosocial functioning, and prognoses for employability and self-support. This must be a detailed evaluation covering the person's present condition. Generalized statements made by the attending physician are not sufficient since they do not


provide the reviewing physician with enough information. Remember, the
determination as to the degree of incapacitation is based on what is written by the attending physician. b. A complete medical summary of the history of the
condition including age and date of original diagnosis and treatment received or recommended. The condition nust have been present and diagnosed before the age 21.
Although a summary of medical records is acceptable, it must be detailed enough for the reviewing physician to track the condition from date of onset to the present. c. In cases of mental retardation, the types and
results of any I.Q. tests administered are required. This must include detailed
test results and an evaluation by the examiner.
d. A report of any vocational or rehabilitative training received or recommended.
All of the above information may be included in a well written evaluation completed by a qualified physician. A sample copy of such an evaluation may be
obtained from NMPC Code 121. Be sure all evaluations are signed by the attending physician or appropriate official. Other paperwork required is:
a. A DD form 1172 completed and signed by the sponsor.
b. A statement signed by the sponsor or guardian indicating the amount of financial support provided.
(In case of divorce the sponsor must be providing 50 percent support.) If the sponsor is deceased, he must have been providing 50 percent support at the time


of his death. Also include any benefits received from the Veterans Administration or the state.
c. A statement from the Social Security Administration indicating what, if any, assistance they provide and whether or not the individual is eligible for Hospital Insurance from Medicare. This information is necessary to determine if the dependent is entitled to the Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Uniformed Services (Champus). If the individual is eligible for Part A of Medicare, he may not receive Champus. According to the Privacy Act, authority to request these documents is derived from Title 10 of the U.S. Code. The information requested will be used to determin the degree and anticipated duration of your child's incapacity. While disclosure of the information is voluntary, failure to provide everything needed may result in denial of extension of benefits.
The more complete the documentation, the faster the reviewing physician will be able to make a determination as to the degree of incapacitation.
Send the complete package to Commander, Naval Military Personnel Command, Code N-121, Navy Department, Washington, D.C. 20370-5121.
For further assistance, please contact Lt. Cmdr. J. Sheldon, Head of the Benefits Eligibility Division at NMPC at commercial 202-694-3355.

Viola. to pitch' for $674,000


(AP) ---The Minnesota Twins will pay lefthander Frank Viola $674,000 to pitch this coming season. That is the ruling from a salary arbitrator, whose award yesterday almost doubles the 1985 pay of Viola, an 18-game winner each of the past two years.
Meantime, Viola's teammate,
infielder Gary Gaetti, also won a raise for 1986. However, the arbitrator rejected Gaetti's bid of $675,000, siding with the Twins' offer of $515,000. Still, Gaetti gets a $100,000 pay increase.
Yesterday's arbitration


rulings gives the owners six
victories in the 10 decisions announced so far.

Several other big leaguers have avoided arbitration hearings by agreeing to contracts. The latest list of signers include infielders Juan Samuel of Philadelphia, Bill Doran of Houston, Dave Stapleton of Boston, and Bryan Little of Chicago White Sox, and Oakland pitcher Bill Krueger.
Former California Angel reliever Luis Sanchez will apparently take his pitching talents to the Japanese League.


Wednesday, February 12, 1986-


Houston swept past Atlanta 113-100. Ralph Sampson had 27 points and Akeem Olajuwon jammed in 25 for the Rockets. No Hawk scored more than 13 points.

Phoenix Suns 120-112.
Seattle snapped a four-game losing streak with a 105-92 win over the Utah Jazz. Jack Sikma had 19 points and 19
boards for the Supersonics.
New Jersey played without guard Micheal Ray Richardson and injured center Darryl Dawkins, yet pulled out a 130-122 win over the Detriot Pistons. Buck Williams and
Otis Birdsong each scored 31 points and Mike Gmininski add 27 for the Nets. Micheal Ray Richardson's status in the NBA depends on a drug test. The New Jersey Nets say they expect he league to announce resulif the testing to* .
Richardson, saying he had the flu, missed a practice Monday. The Nets fined him and told him to undergo the drug test yesterday. Richardson's had drug
problems in the past, and if he has a relapse, he will be banned from the NBA for at least two years. Richardson was reinstated to the league three weeks ago after spending 15 days in a rehabilitation center.

DAILY GA ZETTE Guantanamo Bay, Cuba Vol. 42 -No. 29 -U.S. Wavy's only shore-based daily newspaper -Wednesday, February 12, 1986 Cold could be cause of shuttle explosion (UPI) -Investigators are checking whether cold may ve caused the rupture in a rocket booster before the shuttle Challenger exploded. The temperature at Challenger's launch on January 26 was 38 degrees. The previous low temperature for a shuttle launch was 51 degrees. The shuttle blew up and all seven astronauts were killed in an explosion a little more than a minute after take off. A Noble-winning physicist, Richard Fevnman, mentioned the cold yesterday during a meeting of the presidential commission investigating the disaster. Feynmam dropped some synthetic rubber used in the o-rings to seal the rockets into ice water. It lost its resiliency. Commission chairman William Rogers says the question of the cold weather will be discussed in greater detail tomorrow or Friday at the Kennedy Space Center. Navy divers may have found the remains of Challenger's unfired satellite rocket *mp Building -Lance Cpl. Greg ermott (left) and Lance Cpl. John Twenter of the 8th Engineers build a ramp over the fuel line near McDonald's so heavy equipment booster. It was blown clear of the shuttle during the explosion. The divers were lowered to the floor of the Atlantic at a depth of 120 feet yesterday 18 miles east of Cape Canaveral. Neither the Navy nor the space agency are saying what they saw. The fact the divers were sent down at all indicates a strong possibility the rocket was found. can enter the area to fill it with dirt. The site being prepared is where the new Navy Exchange and Commissary will be located. (Photo by J02 Neil Guillebeau) Reagan will support whoever wins Philippine election (UPI) -President Reagan says he will support whoever wins the Philippine election because protecting U.S. bases on the islands is the most important thing. Last night at a news conference, Reagan sidestepped accusations of vote fraud and violence by President Marcos' government, even though a U.S. delegation returned home outraged at the ud committed by Marcos' Reagan is sending veteran negotiator Philip Habib to the Philippines to, as Reagan put it, "help nurture the hopes and possibilities of democracy." Reagan told Habib to meet with political leaders, church officials and other key figures in the islands. Asked about a date for the second superpower summit, Reagan said there is still no agreement. He said he doubts the Soviets are trying to get out of another meeting. He said he mentioned one date and the Soviets mentioned another, but the U.S. rejected it because it was too close to the U.S. congressional elections. Reagan also discussed minority hiring quotas. The president said the time has come for a "color blind society." He called for abandoning the use of minority hiring quotos to remedy discrimination in the workplace. That is even though 100 black Republicans sent him a letter urging him to continue affirmative action programs. The president also warned he will veto any tax increase passed by Congress. At the news conference, he pushed the idea of slashing the deficit by reducing spending. Vice President Bush got a vote of confidence from the president. Reagan said Bush is "part and parcel" of every important decision. Reagan also displayed some righteous indignation over the infamous $640 military toilet seat. He said it never existed. Reagan said it was a molded cover for the entire toilet system. U.S. ships maneuver near Libya (UPI) -U.S. aircraft carriers have returned to the waters off Libya and American warplanes may have begun flights in the area. The carriers U.S.S. Coral Sea and U.S.S. Saratoga are within striking distance of the Gulf of Sidra, which Libyan Leader Moammar Khadafy claims for Libya. President Reagan last night denied Khadafy's claim to the gulf, but said he did not know if the U.S. ships would be in it. The U.S. Sixth Fleet filed a notice Sunday that planes from the aircraft carriers may be in the area for maneuvers. There is no confirmation yet if they are. This is the second time within a month that U.S. Navy forces have been in the area.

Service academies: making leaders (AFPS) -You have gained some leadership skills during your enlisted service in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps or Coast Guard. You think you have the makings of a good officer. Maybe a service academy is for you. Each year, some 350 enlisted men and women from the active and Reserve components are selected to enter one of four service academies, the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y.; the U.S. Naval Academy, Annapolis, Md.; the U.S. Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, Colo.; and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, Groton, Conn. The academies are the under-graduate colleges of the services. They offer a variety of majors, ranging from electrical engineering to history to English. However, unlike those of other colleges and universities, the curriculums at the service academies are geared to motivating and training career military officers. "The (Air Force) academy's cadets go on to be pilots, navigators, scientists, engineers, support officers, astronauts, lawyers and doctors," explained LIt. Col. Bill Walisch, an instructor at the U.S. Air Force Academy. "But they've trained to be officers first and foremost. .No matter if the lesson is Shakespeare, quantum mechanics, organic chemistry or astronautics, the professor.can relate the lesson of the day to the Disability b (Washington) -Medical and other benefits provided by the Navy may be extended to an unmarried, dependent child over age 21 providing the child is suffering from a disability that existed prior to the 21st birthday and which renders the child totally incapable of self-support. The final determination for continuation of benefits due to incapacitation is whether or not the sponsor is providing greater than 50 percent support. If there is no possibility of the dependent ever becoming capable of self-support, this should be clearly stated in the documents submitted. The head of the Benefits Eligibility Division of the Naval Military Personnel Command (NMPC) is the only person authorized to issue ID cards to dependent children over age 21 who are incapable of self-supprt. The decision to authorize an ID card in such cases is based upon the degree of incapacity previously determined by the Naval Medical Command. To meet the requirements of federal statute, and to evaluate your child's case, the Commander, Naval Military Personnel Command, requires the following information: a. A current medical/psychological evaluation conducted within the last twelve months. Include diagnosis and treatment regimen, assessment of psychosocial functioning, and prognoses for employability and self-support. This must be a detailed evaluation covering the person's present condition. Generalized statements made by the attending physician are not sufficient since they do not career of an.officer." While attending an academy, these service members wear the rank of cadets or midshipmen. Like their academy peers who enter the service directly from civilian life, they are paid one-half a second lieutenant's or ensign's base pay, about $6,800 a year. After completing a demanding four-year program, these cadets and midshipmen are commissioned as second lieutenants in the Army, Air Force and Marine Corps, or as ensigns in the Navy and Coast Guard. Under an agreement they sign before entering an academy, they serve at least five years of active commissioned service. The academies' entrance requirements are strict, and competition is fierce. To be appointed as a cadet or midshipman, you must: o be a U.S. citizen; o be at least 17 years of age, but not past your 22nd birthday on July 1 of your academy reporting year; o show academic achievement; o pass physical fitness and medical examinations; o be unmarried, with no dependents; o be of high moral character; o demonstrate leadership potential. Most applicants are nominated for a service academy appointment by their congressman or senator. (The Coast Guard Academy does not base its selections on nominations and relies only on an applicant's high school transcript.) Some service members enter the academies through this nomination process. Admissions officials recommend that those interested in doing so contact their education offices for assistance. However, most service members are appointed to an academy through the military preparatory school program. Three military prep schools are designed to prepare academy hopefuls for the academic and physical rigors they will confront once they get there. Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen attend the U.S. Naval Academy Preparatory School at Newport, R.I.; soldiers, the U.S. Military Academy Preparatory School at Fort Monmouth, N.J.; and airmen, the U.S. Air Force Academy Preparatory School at Colorado Springs, Colo. Prep schools offer demanding nine-month curriculums of academics, athletics and military related training. Service members attending prep school receive the full pay and allowances of their military rank. On completion of a prep school, service members are not automatically selected to enter a service academy; however, those who complete prep school with high standings have a good shot at an academy appointment. For more information about preparatory schools and service academies, see your installation's education officer or career counselor. enefits and eligibility provide the reviewing physician with enough information. Remember, the determination as to the degree of incapacitation is based on what is written by the attending physician. b. A complete medical summary of the history of the condition including age and date of original diagnosis and treatment received or recommended. The condition nust have been present and diagnosed before the age 21. Although a summary of medical records is acceptable, it must be detailed enough for the reviewing physician to track the condition from date of onset to the present. c. In cases of mental retardation, the types and results of any I.Q. tests administered are required. This must include detailed test results and an evaluation by the examiner. d. A report of any vocational or rehabilitative training received or recommended. All of the above information may be included in a well written evaluation completed by a qualified physician. A sample copy of such an evaluation may be obtained from NMPC Code 121. Be sure all evaluations are signed by the attending physician or appropriate official. Other paperwork required is: a. A DD form 1172 completed and signed by the sponsor. b. A statement signed by the sponsor or guardian indicating the amount of financial support provided. (In case of divorce the sponsor must be providing 50 percent support.) If the sponsor is deceased, he must have been providing 50 percent support at the time of his death. Also include any benefits received from the Veterans Administration or the state. c. A statement from the Social Security Administration indicating what, if any, assistance they provide and whether or not the individual is eligible for Hospital Insurance from Medicare. This information is necessary to determine if the dependent is entitled to the Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Uniformed Services (Champus) .If the individual is eligible for Part A of Medicare, he may not receive Champus. According to the Privacy Act, authority to request these documents is derived from Title 10 of the U.S. Code. The information requested will be used to determine the degree and anticipated duration of your child's incapacity. While disclosure of the information is voluntary, failure to provide everything needed may result in denial of extension of benefits. The more complete the documentation, the faster the reviewing physician will be able to make a determination as to the degree of incapacitation. Send the complete package to Commander, Naval Military Personnel Command, Code N-121, Navy Departeent, Washington, D.C. 20370-5121. For further assistance, please contact Lt. Cmdr. J. Sheldon, Head of the Benefits Eligibility Division at NMPC at commercial 202-694-3355. 3 Daily Gazette Wednesday, February 12, 1986 i

That is the ruling from a salary arbitrator, whose award yesterday almost doubles the 1985 pay of Viola, an 18-game winner each of the past two years. Meantime, Viola's teammate, infielder Gary Gaetti, also won a raise for 1986. However, the arbitrator rejected Gaetti's bid of $675,000, siding with the Twins' offer of $515,000. Still, Gaetti gets a $100,000 pay increase. Yesterday's arbitration rulings gives the owners six victories in the 10 decisions announced so far. Several other big leaguers have avoided arbitration hearings by agreeing to contracts.
