Eastern may sell

A to Texas Air Corp.

(UPI) -- Eastern Airlines says it has reached an
agreement in principle to sell the nation's third largest carrier to Texas Air
Corporation.
In announcing the decision
in Miami early today, Eastern Chairman Frank Borman said the sale was "the only alternative" to filing for bankruptcy protection against its creditors.
The financially troubled airline had reached tentative cost-cutting.agreeentswith its pilots and flight attendants unions. Airline officials say the refusal of a third union, the International Association of Mechinists, to even discuss a new contract forced the sell out.
Eastern has a deadline Friday from banks to cut labor costs or face technical defaults on it long-term debts.
The chairman of Texas Air is Frank Lorenzo, a man disliked by many labor leaders. Lorenzo headed Continental Airlines when it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in September 1983 and canceled its union contracts. The action triggered a strike by pilots and flight attendants.

New theory of shuttle blast


(l) -- The main theory
it the loss of the
ChAlenger shuttle revolves around seals on a booster rocket. Another theory is
being advocated, the external fuel tank.
The former president of the company that made the Challenger booster rockets
suggests the shuttle explosion was caused by a
leak in the external fuel tank, not by a failure in the booster O-ring seals. Harold Ritchey pioneered solid-propellent boosters for Morton Thiokol's shuttle
program. He and four other scientists have urged the president's shuttle commission to consider the

Around the globe


Villagers Return Home (UPI) - In Southern Lebanon, hundreds of Moslem villagers returned to their homes yesterday after fleeing last week from Israeli troops searching for two captured comrades. The villagers accused the Israelis of torturing people detained for questioning during the fruitless operation. An Israeli military spokesman in the Tel Aviv denied the alligations of torture, but declined to speak for the Israeli backed South Lebanon army militia. He says, "That is another story."

Fishing Fleet Returns To Sea (UPI) -- Most of the fishing fleet of New Bedford, Mass., has already returned to sea. Striking fishermen say their nearly two-month strike is not over. They are vowing to step up picketing in an effort to force a settlement with the Seafood Producers Association. A union spokesman calls it a "fight for survival."

FBI Looking Into Continental Airlines (UPI) The Dallas Morning News says the FBI is looking into reports that Continental Airlines got favorable treatment from the Federal Aviation Adminstration. The papers says in a copyright story FAA officials deleted criticism of Continental from inspection reports on at least three occasions in 1984. one of the criticisms was that Continental used unqualified, uncertified pilots to check trainees.

Avalanches Hit Utah (UPI) -- The biggest avalanches in at least 20 years have hit the state of Utah. An expert at the U.S. Forest Service Avalanche Forecast Center says about 1,000 avalanches roared down the WasatchRange during the past week. They included an unusually big 400-foot-wide avalanche at a ski resort near Salt Lake City that resulted in the fifth death from snowslides this season.

Seventy-one Injured In Bus Accident -- Four Scranton, Pa., hospitals confirm that at least 71 people were injured when a bus carrying skiiers ramned another bus on the same tour. The hospitals say most of the passengers apparently escaped serious injury.

East Beirut Explosion Kills Five (UPI) --Five people were killed and 12 others injured today when a car loaded with explosives blew up near a crowded supermarket in Christian East Beirut. The blast follows several hours of fighting in Moslem West Beirut.

With much sadness I am
saying goodbye, after almost four years of calling you home.
I hear so many people "put you down," but obviously they did not get to know you and your people (transient though most of us are), and love you as I do. This will always be my "unofficial home." I have
seen some changes, and I see more changes coming, McDonald's, the upcoming NEX/Commissary Mall, and others.
I will take a lasting Cuban treasure with me when we leave, my youngest son, who was born here. I will also take with me many fond memories of my extended families, military, Cuban,

"Cookie Crumbles' is an "opinion" by the author and does not necessarily represent the position of the camand or the U.S. Navy

Wrapping packages and
mailing them from Guantanamo Bay has always been an interesting if not an exasperating experience.
Years ago, the older Gtmonians recalled when no tape and paper were available on base, the Post Office would have some on hand. I
wondered if this would still be true as I waited outside the door for the 11:00 a.m.
opening.
As the crowd grew, I looked
at the packages people were balancing on cars, kids, and themselves. What a sight! All kinds of tape adornned the
packages: electrical, scotch, adhesive and even one with what looked like green florist tape.
As the door was unlocked, all of the 18 people disappeared through the door, I wondered, "Had the post office enlarged since I had been here in the seventies?"
As the door flew open, I caught a glance, no enlargement. It was still a four-foot by six-foot floor
space which now was engulfed by goodies, packages, and one kid crawling through the peoples' legs crying, "Mommy, where are you?"
The Post Office crew was proficiently and politely telling each person their packages were wrapped with
inadequate tape. Then, they pointed to the table with the acceptable tape and water sponge to moisten it. My eyes were drawn to the two-feet by two-feet table where it looked as if a monstrous,
octupus was attacking the roll of paper. Arms were flying, and a pair of scissors on a chain kept
dropping into the trash can with a melodious thud.
A young man proved the Scout's motto, "Be prepared," was appropriate even here. I watched him pull from his pocket a small pair of
scissors, crawl under the table, reach up, grab the tape, cut three strips, and crawl back to the door.


Jamaican, and of course, my friends from the Fil-Am Club and our monthly "family
reunions" or meetings.
I have celebrated many
different cultural holidays here. My children have been able to experience many different cultures and learn from all of them. There is such a great wealth-of beauty, not just the physical beauty of the island, but in the people here. It is very hard not to get involved and put yourself into the
community.
For those of you remaining
people I have grown to know and love, I will miss you
very much, but our paths may cross again. As the saying
goes, "It's a small world."





Cookie

arelob ee

-By Cookie Johnson


I could not help but wonder
how he planned to moisten his tape without access to the wet sponge on that one table.
My eyes affixed on him. I watched as he opened the door to reveal the largest dog I had ever seen. The man screamed "lick" and the dog did! The tape was moistened quicker than either either of my kids could devour a
sucker.
In the meantime, I was
given the unwelcomed news that the masking tape on my package was not acceptable. I drew a deep breath and tried to work my way over to that "infamous" table, where that one roll of three-inch wide tape lay. I was quite proud of myself as I had charged through the crowd. I reached the table in record time by simply using "Refrigerator' s"
latest moves.
As the tape bounced up and
down and then off the wall, I could hear a friend yell, "Rebound Cookie, rebound!"
That produced all the adrenlin I needed! I gave a springing jump. My basketball coach would have been proud
of me, as down I came with
the basketball, I mean tape.
But now for logistics. The
scissors swung by, and the wet sponge just sat in view, but both were out of reach. I opted to grab the scissors on the first swing by me. On the second swing, I had cut the piece of tape I needed. But before I gave up of possession of the scissors, I announced, "I'll pass the scissors to whomever passes the sponge to me!" It worked!
I had the sponge! With no time wasted, I pulled the tape over the sponge, and this seemed to breathe life into this inanimate object.
It began curling up. Then it reached out and grabbed my
elbow.
I almost had it on my
package. But for one short moment I let my guard down and it grabbed a lady's handbag. She helped it off.
At last it was on my package.
Pleased with my accomplishment, I worked my way back to the postal clerk. He took one look at may package and said, "Ma'am, the tape has covered
your addresses."


Para mis amigos Cubanos, estoy muy triste por que me voy para los Estados Unidos. Les echare mucho de menos. For all my Jamaican friends I have made through the past few years, "Soon come, man," as Berris Samuels always told me.
No place like itl
I will miss celebrating
the different holidays here, especially Cuban American Friendship Day and Jamaican Independance Day, in addition to our other holidays, including the Christmas and Fourth of July parades.
I will remember the Country Western dance lessons at the Fleet Reserve Association. For all my friends at the Commissary, remember me at the end of the accounting month, I will be thinking of you.
For all of you staying;
enjoy Guantanamo Bay. There is no other place like it on earth. Adios!
P.S. Chuck and MirthaW would rather be diving!

Determine in advance if there is a smoke detector in the house and if a home fire escape plan has been prepared. If there is no

Call the fire department from a neighbor's phone. Give the complete address and

(AP) -- Losing to twentieth-. ranked North Carolina State yesterday may have cost North Carolina more than just a game in the Atlantic Coast Conference standings. It may have also cost the Tar Heels their season-long, 13-week grip on the top spot in the Associated Press College Basketball Poll.

to a highly charged 76-65 victory in Raleigh. The decision snapped a three-game losing streak for the Wolfpack, and marked the third loss of the season, and

Geoff Bodine is hardly a household name in American
sports, but try the pits at the motor raceways. They will tell you about him. They will especially tell you about his victory in the Daytona 500 in Florida on
last Sunday.
Bodine took the checkered
flag that greets the winner, with nine-tenths of a gallon of gas left in his tank. That
would just about have gotten him around the track once.
Geoff had taken a clear lead when Dale Earnhardt, who had been in a hot battle with himdi, ran out of gas
with only three laps to go.
Bodine earned first money of $192,715 for his victory at Daytona. That was the
largest single share of purse money in NASCAR history.
Bodine, 36, is just coming into his own as a race
driver. He is young enough to have lots of zip, and old enough to know what to do with it.
His crew chief, the knowledgeable Gary Nelson,
says one of Bodine's outstanding traits is that he is never 100 percent satisfied with the car. Nelson hastened to add that this does not mean he is never pleased. He certainly was happy with Sunday's victory.
What it does mean, according to Nelson, is that

Bodine always feels there is room for improvement.
The future book prices on the Kentucky Derby on May 3 are out in Las Vegas. "Tasso" is the favorite, at 6-1, and
"Snow Chief" is the second choice, also at 6-1.
Future book betting is really for veteran horse
bettors, including a lot of owners and trainers. It is called "pay or play" and for a good reason. If your horse is withdrawn before the
Derby, you lose your bet. On the other hand, if you make a
bet at 6-1 or 8-1 or even 100-1, that price stands. You
might back a horse at 50-1, and if he goes to the post a 2-1 favorite in May, you still get 50-1.
Something like that
happened a long time ago, when there was future book
betting on the Santa Anita Handicap. The book was established in Mexico, just below the border.
On bright morning early in January, the book was open for business, and in cane a

Tewell enters winner's circle


(AP) -- A final-round
8-under-par 63 yesterday put Doug Tewell into the PGA winner's circle for the first time since 1980. Tewell captured the Los Angeles
Open, completing four rounds at 14-under 270, seven strokes in front of
Clarence Rose and eight better than Willie Wood. Tewell, who considered
retiring from the tour last year because of a herniated disc, now has three pro victories.
After four years on the LPGA tour, Mary Beth Zimmerman has come up a


winner. A 10-under-par 276 in Phoenix yesterday left the former Florida International All-American one stroke in
front of Donna Caponi and Cathy Kratzert. Zimmerman almost let the tournament slip away as she bogeyed the final hole, but both Caponi and Kratzert missed potential
tying putts.
Overseas, Mark O'Meara captured the Australian Masters Golf Tournament in Melbourne with help from a pair of eagles yesterday. The Californian's eight-under-pm 284 was one shot in front Aussie David Graham.


Buffalo beats Capitals 4-1


(AP) -- Mike Ramsey scored in the second period to snap a tie game, and propeled Buffalo over the Washington Capitals 4-1 last night. John Tucker
added two assists for the Sabres.

Also in the NHL, the shots were even between Boston and Vancouver at 28 each. The
Bruins found the net more often as they downed the Canucks 6-1.
Yesterday afternoon in hockey, hat tricks by Doug Gilmour and Mark Hunter


helped make the St. Louis Blues 8-2 winners over the
Hartford Whalers. The Chicago Blackhawks got goals from six players in beating the Calgary Flames 6-2.

Winnipeg's Randy Carlyle scored with just 34 seconds gone in the game to start the Jets en route to a 4-2 win
over the Quebec Nordiques.

The Minnesota North Stars grabbed a four-goal lead,
then hung on to edge the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-3.

* "Fine," said the bookmaker, "Pegasus is 20-1. How much do you want to bet?"
"Oh," she said. "I have it right here." She opened her purse, and took out five crisp $1,000 bills.
As she turned to leave, he
said, "How can such a young lady bet so much on a horse race?"
The sweet young thing smiled and said, "It is not for me. It is for my friend, a trainer at Santa Anita.
may have heard of him, Jo Doe?"
John Doe was not the trainer's real name, which, of course, the girl did use. He was in his late middle years, and was rated one of the smartest trainers in the country. By now, the bookmaker was certain he had been
taken, he got confirmation of the two months later when Pegasus won the big handicap.
There is a moral to this story, of course. Never underestimate the power of the woman, especially when she has the inside dope.

Guantanamo Bay, Cuba Vol. 42 -No. 36 -U.S. Navy's only shore-based daily newspaper -Monday, Feb. 24, 1986 Power struggle continues in Philippines in power. He said today he will not resign. He said he will go ahead with his inauguration for another term tomorrow. As Marcos was announcing his un-yielding position, rebels took over the television station and cut his broadcast short. In addition, rebel troops and forces loyal to Marcos are fighting near the presidential palace. Aquino addressed the Filipino people in a brief radio interview. She appealed for peace and said the Parting Waters -EN1 Audrey Warren and her husband HT2 Bobby Warren frolic in Dunn River Falls, Jamaica. Bobby and Audrey took advantage of a ship trip to Jamaica February 14 -17. Watch for more photographs and articles about the Jamaica visit in future issues of the Daily Gazette. (Photo by J01 Stacey Byington) New theory of shuttle blast ) -The main theory it the loss of the Cni lenger shuttle revolves around seals on a booster rocket. Another theory is being advocated, the external fuel tank. The former president of the company that made the Challenger booster rockets suggests the shuttle explosion was caused by a leak in the external fuel tank, not by a failure in the booster 0-ring seals. Harold Ritchey pioneered solid-propellent boosters for Morton Thiokol's shuttle program. He and four other scientists have urged the president's shuttle commission to consider the possibility a leak of liquid hydrogen from the external tank sparked the January 28 catastrophe. A former Thiokol engineer who is now a rocketry specialist at Purdue University, John Osburne, said, "If there were a hydrogen leak: then almost everything else fits like a glove." The scientists admit one major discrepancy in the hydrogen-leak theory is the existence of an extra plume of flame from the lower booster section. Ritchey says the pattern of the flame is clearly that of escaping solid propellent gasses. b-Two governments c to be in power in the Philippines. Military leaders who defected from President Marcos' government in disgust, saying he stole his re-election, proclaimed Corazon Aquino the chief of a provisional government. Aquino, the losing candidate in the disputed official count of the presidential election ballots, accepted the mantle. However, Marcos says he is still in power and will stay Filipinos have recovered their freedom. Aquino's whereabouts are being kept secret. She fears for her life, still blaming Marcos for the assassination of her husband, who was opposition leader before her. There are reports she will appear at a rally later today. For millions of Filipinos, the sudden break in transmission at the government's television station was the first concrete proof that the president's 20-year grip on power is slipping. Eastern may sell to Texas Air Corp. (UPI) -Eastern Airlines says it has reached an agreement in principle to sell the nation's third largest carrier to Texas Air Corporation. In announcing the decision in Miami early today, Eastern Chairman Frank Borman said the sale was "the only alternative" to filing for bankruptcy protection against its creditors. The financially troubled airline had reached tentative cost-cutting agreements with its pilots and flight attendants unions. Airline officials say the refusal of a third union, the International Association of Machinists, to even discuss a new contract forced the sell out. Eastern has a deadline Friday from banks to cut labor costs or face technical defaults on it long-term debts. The chairman of Texas Air is Frank Lorenzo, a man disliked by many labor leaders. Lorenzo headed Continental Airlines when it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in September 1983 and canceled its union contracts. The action triggered a strike by pilots and flight attendants. Scientist says there may be life elsewhere (UPI) -The scientist who pioneered the first search for intelligent life in the galaxy says we are probably not alone. Frank Drake of the University of California's Santa Cruz campus was among the scientists who gathered in San Francisco for a weekend symposium on Project Seti, or search for extraterrestrial intelligence. At the meeting, NASA announced a "systematic search" for non-random radio signals in the Milky Way will begin next year. The NASA effort to detect intelligence life will involve seven nations. Drake began his search 25 years ago. He says recent -information show that some stars have planets. He speculates some of those planets contain the right ingredients for life, possibly similar to Earth's.

The villagers accused the Israelis of torturing people detained for questioning during the fruitless operation. An Israeli military spokesman in the Tel Aviv denied the alligations of torture, but declined to speak for the Israeli backed South Lebanon army militia. He says, "That is another story." Fishing Fleet Returns To Sea (UPI) -Most of the fishing fleet of New Bedford, Mass., has already returned to sea. Striking fishermen say their nearly two-month strike is not over.

FBI Looking Into Continental Airlines (UPI) -The Dallas Morning News says the FBI is looking into reports that Continental Airlines got favorable treatment from the Federal Aviation Adninstration. The papers says in a copyright story FAA officials deleted criticism of Continental from inspection reports on at least three occasions in 1984. One of the criticisms was that Continental used unqualified, uncertified pilots to check trainees. Avalanches Hit Utah (UPI) -The biggest avalanches in at least 20 years have hit the state of Utah. An expert at the U.S. Forest Service Avalanche Forecast Center says about 1,000 avalanches roared down the Wasatch Range during the past week.

To the editor Goodbye: I hope you enjoy the beauty here With much sadness I am saying goodbye, after almost four years of calling you home. I hear so many people "put you down," but obviously they did not get to know you and your people (transient though most of us are), and love you as I do. This will always be my "unofficial home." I have seen sane changes, and I see more changes coming, McDonald's, the upcoming NEX/Commissary Mall, and others. I will take a lasting Cuban treasure with me when we leave, my youngest son, who was born here. I will also take with me many fond memories of my extended families, military, Cuban, -4 "Cookie Crumbles' is an "opinion" by the author and does not necessarily represent the position of the command or the U.S. Navy Wrapping packages and mailing them from Guantanamo Bay has always been an interesting if not an exasperating experience. Years ago, the older Gtmonians recalled when no tape and paper were available on base, the Post Office would have some on hand. I wondered if this would still be true as I waited outside the door for the 11:00 a.m. opening. As the crowd grew, I looked at the packages people were balancing on cars, kids, and themselves. What a sight! All kinds of tape adornned the packages: electrical, scotch, adhesive and even one with what looked like green florist tape. As the door was unlocked, all of the 18 people disappeared through the door, I wondered, "Had the post office enlarged since I had been here in the seventies?" As the door flew open, I caught a glance, no enlargement. It was still a four-foot by six-foot floor space which now was engulfed by goodies, packages, and one kid crawling through the peoples' legs crying, "Momy, where are you?" The Post Office crew was proficiently and politely telling each person their packages were wrapped with inadequate tape. Then, they pointed to the table with the acceptable tape and water sponge to moisten it. My eyes were drawn to the two-feet by two-feet table where it looked as if a monstrous: octupus was attacking the roll of paper. Arms were flying, and a pair of scissors on a chain kept dropping into the trash can with a melodious thud. A young man proved the Scout's motto, "Be prepared," was appropriate even here. I watched him pull from his pocket a small pair of scissors, crawl under the table, reach up, grab the tape, cut three strips, and crawl back to the door. Jamaican, and of course, my friends from the Fil-Am Club and our monthly "family reunions" or meetings. I have celebrated many different cultural holidays here. My children have been able to experience many different cultures and learn from all of them. There is such a great wealth of beauty, not just the physical beauty of the island, but in the people here. It is very hard not to get involved and put yourself into the community. For those of you remaining people I have grown to know and love, I will miss you very much, but our paths may cross again. As the saying goes, "It's a small world." Cookie Sort;'6es -By Cookie Johnson I could not help but wonder how he planned to moisten his tape without access to the wet sponge on that one table. My eyes affixed on him. I watched as he opened the door to reveal the largest dog I had ever seen. The man screamed "lick" and the dog did! The tape was moistened quicker than either either of my kids could devour a sucker. In the meantime, I was given the unwelcomed news that the masking tape on my package was not acceptable. I drew a deep breath and tried to work my way over to that "infamous" table, where that one roll of three-inch wide tape lay. I was quite proud of myself as I had charged through the crowd. I reached the table in record time by simply using "Refrigerator's" latest moves. As the tape bounced up and down and then off the wall, I could hear a friend yell, "Rebound Cookie, rebound!" That produced all the adrenlin I needed! I gave a springing jump. My basketball coach would have been proud of me, as down I came with the basketball, I mean tape. But now for logistics. The scissors swung by, and the wet sponge just sat in view, but both were out of reach. I opted to grab the scissors on the first swing by me. On the second swing, I had cut the piece of tape I needed. But before I gave up of possession of the scissors, I announced, "I'll pass the scissors to whomever passes the sponge to me!" It worked! I had the sponge! With no time wasted, I pulled the tape over the sponge, and this seemed to breathe life into this inanimate object. It began curling up. Then it reached out and grabbed my elbow. I almost had it on my package. But for one short moment I let my guard down and it grabbed a lady's handbag. She helped it off. At last it was on my package. Pleased with my accomplishment, I worked my way back to the postal clerk. He took one look at may package and said, "Ma'an, the tape has covered your addresses." Para mis amigos Cubanos, estoy muy triste por que me voy para los Estados Unidos. Les echare mucho de menos. For all my Jamaican friends I have made through the past few years, "Soon come, man," as Berris Samuels always told me. No place like it! I will miss celebrating the different holidays here, especially Cuban American Friendship Day and Jamaican Independence Day, in addition to our other holidays, including the Christmas and Fourth of July parades. I will remember the Country Western dance lessons at the Fleet Reserve Association. For all my friends at the Commissary, remember me at the end of the accounting month, I will be thinking of you. For all of you staying, enjoy Guantanamo Bay. There is no other place like it on earth. Adios! P.S. Chuck and Mirtha would rather be diving!
