Gas prices d

* I) -- Analysts say Americans will be doing some more smiling at the prices on the gas pumps.
The world wide drop in crude oil prices has knocked gasoline prices down to their lowest level since 1979. Oil industry analyst Dan Lundberg


(UPI) - President Reagan hopes the success of his campaign for $100 million in aid to Nicarguan rebels improves in the Senate this

sagan appears to have lost none of his zeal for the
cause after last Thursday's defeat in the House. Today, he plans to lobby senators for the votes le will need to pull off a victory in the Republican controlled chamber
at midweek. White House officials believe a win would ensure eventual approval of some, if not all, of his aid package.


Irop,i OPEC's rift grows


says nation-wide prices are down about eight cents a gallon at the retail level in
the last two weeks. Lundberg says wholesale prices have dropped quite a bit more than that.
The chief spokesman for the
American Automobile


Association, Allen Wilbur, says gasoline is cheapest in the Midwest. Gas is averaging 95 cents a gallon in the
central states, and some midwestern stations are selling regular for as low as 75 cents a gallon.
Lundberg and Wilbur say they cannot predict how long the decline will last. Wilbur
says the cheap gas prices might last through summer,
perhaps though the end of the year. Lundberg says it is impossible to predict because it depends on OPEC. Ministers from OPEC's 13 member nations are holding a
ninth day of crisis talks in Geneva today. The once-powerful cartel is bitterly divided about how to share the sacrifice of the curtailing oil production.
Saudi Arabia's oil minister says the rift is growing.
OPEC members agree that reducing production is the only way to end the world wide oil glut and raise prices. They do not agree on how much each nation should reduce its out-put.


Reagan displayed littler
interest in compromise over the weekend. That is despite
predictions in both Congress and the White House that he will be forced to accept compromises on aid to rebels fighting the Leftist Sandinista government.
In Nicaragua, President Daniel Ortega claims the
United States is preparing to invade the Central American nation. He is vowing that the
Contras will be defeated. He says any mercenaries or advisers crossing the
nation's borders are, "going to die."


Aquino not pleased with her performance


(UPI) -- Philippine President Corazon Aquino says she has not done enough in the month since she was swept to power. In an exclusive interview with United Press International today, Aquino said the first month was difficult because she did not
have any transition period. She also says she is slowly adjusting.
She says in her second week as president, she faced the fact it was impossible for her to do everything all at

(UPI) -- Soviet schoolgirl Katerina Lycheva dressed in a sweatshirt that proclaimed "Children as the peacemakers."

One thing which concerns Aquino is that she has not done enough to ease the lives of her country's poor people.
Aquino was asked if she will use authoritarian powers to swiftly dismantle the structures of the 20-year Marcos rule. She replied that it is important not to exceed her authority.

Special Feature


AFDL-1


Lending and sharing make "good neighbor" relations


BY JOC Gary Minich

Guantanamo residents around the harbor today may not have noticed anything significant. After all, Dominican Republic ships and boats are in an out
of here frequently, along with Colombian, Jamaican and vessels of other friendly Caribbean and Latin American nations.
It may have looked
ordinary, but this is a very special day and week in the history of the Dominican
Republic and "good neighbor" relations between the United States and sister states of the Western Hemisphere--the arrival of the Dominican Republic Navy tug, Caonabo.
Warm memories

When Caonabo departs on
Friday, it will be towing away a long-time institution of the Guantanamo harbor and leaving behind same warm and entertaining memories, tokens
of tlfe relations between two nattons.
The Caonabo is here to haul away AFDL-I, a floating drydock built in 1943 that has spent all but five of its 43 years assigned to the naval station's former Ship Repair Department, known since 1982 as the Shore Intermediate Maintenance
Activity (SIMA).
Commissioned as the Endeavor, AFDL-l is an auxiliary floating dock
(light), used since 1948 to lift smaller craft out of the water for dry]ock repairs.
It has been leased to the Dominican Navy for five years
at no cost, and moved to the main Dominican Republic Naval
Base at Las Calderas, on the southwest coast of the island
which the Dominican Republic shares with Haiti, to the southeast of Cuba.
Vice Adm. Perez Navarro, chief of staff of the Dominican Navy, signed a contract on March 10 to
accept the drydock on lease from the United States,
agreeing, among other things to cover all costs of moving
the 'unweildy package from Guantanamo Bay to Las Calderas.
Significant, perhaps, of the importance of the


transfer to the Dominican
Republic, once the facility is in place at the Dominican Republic base, the government plans an official ceremony marking its arrival, attended by the president of the republic and other high-ranking Dominican .officials, foreign dignitaries and guests.
Guantanamo Bay residents may get some idea of the gratitude of the Dominican Navy for transfer of the drydock by Adm. Perez's "gift" to them this week.
In negotiations to arrange the transfer, the admiral requested to be allowed to send the Dominican Navy's merenge band to entertain on the Naval Station during the four-day pre-transfer inspection and visit. The band is making four appearances in Guantanamo Bay.
Once the tug skipper and others are satisfied with SIMA's preparations for towing, Cmdr. Robert B. Ploeger, SIMA commanding officer, will sign a certificate of delivery and the Caonabo will depart, pulling its precious cargo.
The transfer was made possible, in part, by delivery to Guantanamo Bay of
AFDL-25, the Undaunted, earlier this year from Roosevelt Roads. The Undaunted is nearly as old as the Endeavor, built in 1944.
500 long tons
Measuring 200 feet by 48 feet, the new AFDL, like the one on its way to the
Dominican Republican, can be used to lift up to 500 long tons clear of the water so repairs can be made to normally submerged areas.
Operating as a tenant command of the naval base, SIMA effects a wide range of repairs not only for U.S. ships training in Caribbean waters but for all, ships training in Guantanamo Bay.

The repair activity has been in business at Guantanamo without interruption since 1903, making it one of the oldest
- if not the oldest - in the Navy.

Test smoke detectors and save your life


The Naval Station Fire
Department reminds you to 'test your smoke detectors at least once a month. A broken detector provides no
protection and you cannot afford to be without early
warning to a fire. Periodic checks of detectors should be routine in your home. Most smoke detectors have a "press to test" button. It is also a good idea to test the detector using a candle or cigarette. But be very
careful,, hold the candle about six inches under the detector. Keep the candle
burning if you have a


photoelectric-type smoke
detector, as it responds to an' open flame best. Blow the
candle out and let the smoke dr i ft up to an
ionization-type detector, as it responds faster to
smoldering fires. As soon as the alarm sounds, fan the smoke away with a magazine or newspaper.
If your detector is battery operated, change the batteries once a year, at least. Most smoke detectors
will sound a "chirping" noise when the battery gets low,
but do not wait for that. Always keep fresh batter-s


on hand.
You should have at least one smoke detector on each level of your home or apartment. Protect the bedroom areas first, since most fatal home fires happens, at night. Train everyone in your family to respond
quickly at the sound of the smoke detector. Seconds count. Practice getting out
safely.
If your smoke detector is not working properly or it continues to false alarm, contact the Fire Department at 4222.


Nutrition Month: The meaning of body weight


By Lt. Susan Greenberg

The body is made up of four kinds of substances: bone mineral; cells or active tissue; water; fat. A living body appears to have a
solid sameness from day to day. However, the substances which make up the living body are not in a fixed state.
There is a total exchange of particles in our tissues each day which amounts to about five percent of our
body weight. The continuous exchange of particles in the body tissues accounts for continous change of body weight.
Factors like temporary
retention of water in the body, food in the stomach, the amount of water we lose
through perspiration, and day-to-day kidney and intestinal functions can make our body weight, as measured
on the bathroom scale, vary fran day-to-day..
A pattern of weight loss
varies from individual to individual. It can be seen if we record our weight each day or each week. On a day-to-day record we may see a gain of one pound or more. This is usually due to retention of water. On a weekly record, it may also mean an actual gain


of fat if caloric intake exceeded the body's needs. But, if we have controlled our calories faithfully, it is most likely the variation in the water content of fat tissue is responsible for these weight changes. Many
people become discouraged if the scales do not show a daily reward for their dieting efforts. They are apt
to give up their reducing program in frustration. Successful weight loss would be their reward if they would only realize the importance
of water retention in weight reduction.
Fat tissue holds about 15 percent of water whether a person is overweight or not.
In other words, seven pounds of body fat hold at least one
pint (about one pound) of water.
During weight reduction water often accunulates, particularly in middle-aged and elderly women. This may
be due simply to the adipose (fat) tissue and the skin may not shrink back to the prefatness level as fast as the fat is being lost. The resulting empty space gets
filled with fluid, which is eventually lost as the skin and underlying tissues
shrink. Reducing salt intake


and increasing physical activity minimizes this
problem of water retention. A progressive and sustained gradual weight loss leads to less water retention and less wrinkles because it gives the skin time to follow the decrease in size of the individual as he reduces. This is another reason why "crash" diets should be avoided.
If you reach a plateau in your weight loss efforts, and the pounds seem to be more difficult to get rid of, you should remember that this is your body's way of establishing its equilibrium at each new weight level. The unbreakable law of nature regarding energy (calorie) requirement is that when caloric intake falls below our energy requirements, stored fat is lost. Five hundred calories less than our body actually requires each day adds up to 3,500 calories less a week and a loss of one pound'of adipose tissue. One thousand calories less a day means a loss of two pounds a week.


Veterans Administration adopts changes


(AFPS) -- Veterans who served in the U.S. Amry Air Corps or the Army Air Forces can now have reference to that service inscribed on their Veterans Administrationprovided gravemarkers without charge. Veterans who served
in the Women's Auxiliary Corps or the Public Health Service will also be able to
have their designations


inscribed without charge as well under the new Veterans Administration rules.
Until now, inscriptions indicating service in those elements were allowed only as additional items on a Veterans Administration headstone or marker at private expense. The new policy applies to future requests only and is not


retroactive to existing markers.
In the past, veterans who served in the Army Air Corps or the Army Air Forces were
identified as having served in the U.S. Army. The U.S. Air Force was not established
as a separate service until 1947.

Capitals win see-saw game with Flyers


"Final Four" determined, Duke sinks Navy 71-50


(AP) -- The top two teams in the final Associated Press College Basketball poll have joined the party in Dallas, known as the "Final Four."
Top-ranked Duke secured its ticket to Reunion Arena by sinking seventeenth-ranked Navy 71-50 in the NCAA East Regional Championship at East Rutherford, N.J. As has been the case all season, All-American Johnny Dawkins carried the Blue Devils, scoring a game-high 28 points. Duke now has a 20 game winning streak.
The Midwest Regional Title game in Kansas City, Missouri, saw second-ranked Kansas topple North Carolina State 75-67. Kansas twin towers Danny Manning and Greg Dreiling combined for 41 points, leading the Jayhawks to their thirty-fifth victory in 38 outings this season.
Duke led Navy by a 20-16. margin late in the first half, before ripping off 12 straight points for a 34-22 lead at intermission.
Mark Alarie added 18 for Duke, which is 36-2, matching the NCAA's single season victory total. In 1948, Kentucky finished with a 36-3


record.
Navy's David Robinson was splendid in defeat, pumping 23 points.
Back in the Midwest, Kansas
took charge behind Manning's five straight baskets, turning a 57-52 second-half deficit to a 62-58 lead. Manning finished with 22 points, while Dreiling scored 19. Chris Washburn and Charles Shackleford each scored 20 for N.C. State.
So it will be Louisville agains Louisiana State in the opener of the Final Four in Dallas next Saturday, followed by Duke against
Kansas. Duke already owns a 92-86 win over Kansas earlier this season, the finals of the Big Apple NIT.
The semifinals of the National Invitation Tournament are tonight at New York's Madison Square Garden.
In the first game, Wyoming's Cowboys tangle with the Florida Gators. The nightcap
will have the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs up against the Ohio State Buckeyes.
The winners meet Wednesday night for the NIT Championship.


(AP) --The two best teams in the NHL's Patrick Division hooked up for their next-to-last regular-season meeting yesterday. At the Capital Centre, the Washington Capitals edged the
Philadelphia Flyers 6-5 and closed within one point of the Patrick Division leaders.
Bobby Gould's goal at 2:54 of the third period lifted
the Caps to victory, a verdict which snapped Philadelphia's six-game winning streak. It was a see-saw affair, with the Flyers taking a 3-2 lead
after one period, only to go down 5-4 after two before the


NBA action light,

Trail Blazers win

(AP) -- There were just three games on yesterday's NBA schedule, but two of those games had playoff ramifications.
In Portland, the Trail Blazers got 32 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists from Clyde Drexler in a
112-102 win over the Sacramento Kings.
Sacramento's Mike Woodson pumped in a season-high 39 points in a losing effort.
The Spurs lost a chance to put some distance between
themselves and Sacramento when they got shot down by the Seattle Supersonics 107-104.
Elsewhere, a 20-foot jumper by Joe Barry Carroll at the buzzer lifted the Golden State Warriors to a 113-111
win over the Denver Nuggets. Carroll finished with 31
points, scoring all but the final two in the first three quarters. NBA scoring leader
Alex English of Denver tallied 34 points, his fortieth outing of 30 or more points this season.


teams traded third period goals.
The Caps have a chance to take the division lead tomorrow night when they host the Boston Bruins. After that, both the Caps and Flyers will have six regular-season games left, with the regular-season final matching those teams at Philadelphia April 6.
Elsewhere, the Chicago Blackhawks took sole
possession of first place in the Norris Division with a 5-3 win over the New York Rangers. That win put the Hawks two points ahead of the
idle St. Louis Blues.
The loss kept the Rangers three points behind the Pittsburgh Penguins in the
battle for the fourth and


final Patrick Division playoff spot.
A two-goal performance by Mike Foligno helped send the Buffalo Sabres to a 6-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings. The Sabres thus gained a one-point advantage over the Hartford Whalers in their battle for the fourth and final Adams Division playoff spot.
I Meanwhile, the I'Aalers and Boston Bruins skated to a 5-5 tie in Hartford. The Bruins are three points up Hartford and two ahead Buffalo as they try to ho on to third place in the Adams Division.
In Winnipeg, the Calgary Flames scored four times in the opening period, enroute .to a 7-4 win over the Jets.


The Sportsman

By Charles, Morey


Vince Coleman can fly on the base paths and, this season, expects to zoom to
dizzying heights in the record book.
The second-year outfielder of the St. Louis Cardinals has set a couple of goals for
himself that appear to be in outer space.
For openers, would you believe 200 stolen bases? The Major League record of 130 was set by Rickey Henderson, now with the Yankees, when he played for Oakland. Coleman had 110 successful
larcenies in 135 tries last year as a rookie. Raising
that total to 200 would seem to be almost impossible, but he has given it a lot of thought.
For one thing, he wants to cut last season's total of 115 strikeouts about in half. The idea is that if he can make contact with the ball
more often, his rapid spikes will get him to first base safely.
Secondly, his grandiose plan includes a number of steals of third base, in addition to second.
He thinks stealing third is
easier than motoring to second, and he has the figures to back that up. He made good on 26 of 31
attempts to reach the hot corner in 1985.
Coleman says you can get a larger lead off second base than off first. The pitcher has to spin if he wants to
attempt to pick him off second. Vince says he can


beat that kind of throw back to the bag with ease.
The second phase of Coleman's blueprint for 1986 involves hitting. He wants to punch out 200 hits this year, in addition to stealing 200 bases. That would be a first.
Vince made 170 hits last year. Obviously,, if he draws fewer "K's" and makes contact
more often, he will get more hits. Whether he can raise the ante of 200 is something else again. Not many players can.
He could, of course, do more bunting. He gets down the line so fast that any kind of decent bunt guarantees him a hit.
Coleman was 1985's National League Rookie of. the Year, but missed the World Series against Kansas City because of an injury suffered in a freak accident, a collision with a roll-up tarpaulin.
He had more trouble this spring, when he and his agent had a hot contract dispute with the Cardinal front office.
He was not satisfied with the settlement, ard has been vocal about it. He insists it will not affect his play. Vince says he wants to be the best leftfielder in baseball.
He did not say best outfielder because, as he points out, he plays
alongside a guy named Willie McGee.
Buddy Ryan was feisty and .outspoken when he coached the Chicago Bears' defense, ask Mike Ditka about that, and he


has no plans to change.
Ryan is the new coach of
the Philadelphia Eagles, and he is well aware he 'has a tough job ahead of him. He is
going to be the same straight-talking guy he was in Chicago.
Ryan says, "The biggest mistake I could make would be to change my personality now that I am head coach."
Ditka sounded off long and loud in less than
complimentary terms about Ryan when Buddy left Chicago.
Ryan delivered a neat rebuttal recently, when he
said, "I would love to have an assistant in Philadelphia who would take care of Buddy Ryan the way Ryan took care of Ditka in Chicago."
Ryan expects to use the celebrated four-six defense he made famous in Chicago when the Eagles begin play this fall.
He will not have the same personnel, a fact he is well aware of. He thinks the Eagles are not as far behind the Bears in defense as most people think. For openers, Buddy says the Philadelphia secondary is better, and the defensive line is just as good. Are you listening,
Richard Dent?
Ryan amits the linebackers do not measure up to the
Chicago head-hunters. What set of linebackers does? What Ryan is looking for is a Walter Payton-type to carry the ball. He may have to do more than a little looking
around to find one.

fai1 ~~ANYt Guantanamo Bay, Cuba Vol. 42 -No. 54 -U.S. Navy's only shore-based daily newspaper -Monday, March 24, 1986 Gas prices d I) -Analysts say Americans will be doing sane more smiling at the prices on the gas pumps. The world wide drop in crude oil prices has knocked gasoline prices down to their lowest level since 1979. Oil industry analyst Dan Lundberg (UPI) -President Reagan hopes the success of his campaign for $100 million in aid to Nicarguan rebels improves in the Senate this eagan appears to have lost none of his zeal for the cause after last Thursday's defeat in the House. Today, he plans to lobby senators for the votes he will need to pull off a victory in the Republican controlled chamber at midweek. White House officials believe a win would ensure eventual approval of some, if not all, of his aid package. Irop, OPEC's rift grows says nation-wide prices are down about eight cents a gallon at the retail level in the last two weeks. Lundberg says wholesale prices have dropped quite a bit more than that. The chief spokesman for the American Automobile Association, Allen Wilbur, says gasoline is cheapest in the Midwest. Gas is averaging 95 cents a gallon in the central states, and some midwestern stations are selling regular for as low as 75 cents a gallon. Lundberg and Wilbur say they cannot predict how long the decline will last. Wilbur says the cheap gas prices might last through summer, perhaps though the end of the year. Lundberg says it is impossible to predict because it depends on OPEC. Ministers from OPEC's 13 manber nations are holding a ninth day of crisis talks in Geneva today. The once-powerful cartel is bitterly divided about how to share the sacrifice of the curtailing oil production. Saudi Arabia's oil minister says the rift is growing. OPEC members agree that reducing production is the only way to end the world wide oil glut and raise prices. They do not agree on how much each nation should reduce its out-put. Reagan displayed little interest in compromise over the weekend. That is despite predictions in both Congress and the White House that he will be forced to accept compromises on aid to rebels fighting the Leftist Sandinista government. In Nicaragua, President Daniel Ortega claims the United States is preparing to invade the Central American nation. He is vowing that the Contras will be defeated. He says any mercenaries or advisers crossing the nation's borders are, "going to die." Aquino not pleased with her performance (UPI) -Philippine President Corazon Aquino says she has not done enough in the month since she was swept to power. In an exclusive interview with United Press International today, Aquino said the first month was difficult because she did not have any transition period. She also says she is slowly adjusting. She says in her second week as president, she faced the fact it was impossible for her to do everything all at soviet says children are key to peace (UPI) -Soviet schoolgirl Katerina Lycheva dressed in a sweatshirt that proclaimed "Children as the peacemakers." The 11-year-old Russian girl says if it was up to the children to negotiate peace, it would take a minute or so to get together. She says sometimes it is very hard for adults to get together because they quarrel and iUtya, as she is known to her friends, arrived in New York yesterday after a two-day visit to Chicago. She walked arm-in-arm with her American hostess, Star Rone, 10, of San Francisco. Both wore "Children as the peacemakers" sweatshirts. Katya will visit a public school in Brooklyn today. School officials say the school was chosen because of its large number of immigrants, including Russians. The Soviet Union's unofficial peace emmissary to the U.S. is in New York being interviewed on the network talk shows and seeing the sights. once. She says she is learning it is impossible to please everybody. One thing which concerns Aquino is that she has not done enough to ease the lives of her country's poor people. Aquino was asked if she will use authoritarian powers to swiftly dismantle the structures of the 20-year Marcos rule. She replied that it is important not to exceed her authority. Aquino told UPI she hopes to resolve a political crisis by clarifying the status of her government later this week. She said she will declare a provisional government, but declined to reveal any details. A cabinet study committee is reported recommending Aquino declare a "transitional" government, draft a new constitution reviving the U.S.-style presidential system, and hold general elections November 11, for local officials and a bicameral Congress. New rules for visitor requests Visitor Pass Requests -All visitor requests must be submitted not earlier than eight weeks nor later than six weeks in advance of the intended visit dates. Effective Tuesday, April 1, 1986, all requests not received within the time constraints will be returned. Visitor pass requests are GIMOGENFORM 4651/1 (REV 6-82). Full information is available in CCMNAVBASEINST 4631.2C, Chapter 6. Around the globe Narrowly Missed Collision (UPI) -Federal Aviation officials say they still do not know where four military jets came from that narrowly missed a collision Saturday with a commercial jet. The pilot of the TWA Boeing 727 carrying 141 passengers says the incident occured about 50 miles northeast of Cincinnati. FAA investigators say they are listening to tapes of conversations between controllers and pilots. School night curfew 10:30 On any night before a school day, all minor children (those under the age of 17) must be in their homes by 10:30 p.m., unless they are under direct and continuous supervision by a person 21-years of age or older, who has parental permission to, supervise the minor children. On any other night, all minor children must be in their homes by midnight, with the same exceptions as above. Special Feature AFDL-1 Lending and sharing make "good neighbor" relations BY JOC Gary Minich Guantanamo residents around the harbor today may not have noticed anything significant. After all, Dominican Republic ships and boats are in an out of here frequently, along with Colombian, Jamaican and vessels of other friendly Caribbean and Latin American nations. It may have looked ordinary, but this is a very special day and week in the history of the Dominican Republic and "good neighbor" relations between the United States and sister states of the Western Hemisphere--the arrival of the Dominican Republic Navy tug, Caonabo. Warm memories When Caonabo departs on Friday, it will be towing away a long-time institution of the Guantanamo harbor and leaving behind some warm and entertaining memories, tokens of thle relations between we nations. The Caonabo is here to haul away AFDL-l, a floating drydock built in 1943 that has spent all but five of its 43 years assigned to the naval station's former Ship Repair Department, known since 1982 as the Shore Intermediate Maintenance Activity (SIMA). Commissioned as the Endeavor, AFDL-1 is an auxiliary floating dock (light), used since 1948 to lift smaller craft out of the water for drydock repairs. It has been leased to the Dominican Navy for five years at no cost, and moved to the main Daminican Republic Naval Base at Las Calderas, on the southwest coast of the island which the Dominican Republic shares with Haiti, to the southeast of Cuba. Vice Adm. Perez Navarro, chief of staff of the Dominican Navy, signed a contract on March 10 to accept the drydock on lease from the United States, agreeing, among other things to cover all costs of moving the unweildy package from Guantanamo Bay to Las Calderas. Significant, perhaps, of the importance of the transfer to the Dominican Republic, once the facility is in place at the Dominican Republic base, the government plans an official ceremony marking its arrival, attended by the president of the republic and other high-ranking Dominican ,officials, foreign dignitaries and guests. Guantanamo Bay residents may get some idea of the gratitude of the Dominican Navy for transfer of the drydock by Adm. Perez's "gift" to them this week. In negotiations to arrange the transfer, the admiral requested to be allowed to send the Dominican Navy's merenge band to entertain on the Naval Station during the four-day pre-transfer inspection and visit. The band is making four appearances in Guantanamo Bay. Once the tug skipper and others are satisfied with SIMA's preparations for towing, Cmdr. Robert B. Ploeger, SIMA commanding officer, will sign a certificate of delivery and the Caonabo will depart, pulling its precious cargo. The transfer was made possible, in part, by delivery to Guantanamo Bay of AFDL-25, the Undaunted, earlier this year from Roosevelt Roads. The Undaunted is nearly as old as the Endeavor, built in 1944. 500 long tons Measuring 200 feet by 48 feet, the new AFDL, like the one on its way to the Dominican Republican, can be used to lift up to 500 long tons clear of the water so repairs can be made to normally submerged areas. Operating as a tenant command of the naval base, SIMA effects a wide range of repairs not only for U.S. ships training in Caribbean waters but for all ships training in Guantanamo Bay. The repair activity has been in business at Guantanamo without interruption since 1903, making it one of the oldest -if not the oldest -in the Navy.

A broken detector provides no protection and you cannot afford to be without early warning to a fire. Periodic checks of detectors should be routine in your home. Most smoke detectors have a "press to test" button. It is also a good idea to test the detector using a candle or cigarette. But be very careful, hold the candle about six inches under the detector. Keep the candle burning if you have a photoelectric-type smoke detector, as it responds to an open flame best. Blow the candle out and let the smoke drift up to an ionization-type detector, as it responds faster to smoldering fires. As soon as the alarm sounds, fan the smoke away with a magazine or newspaper. If your detector is battery operated, change the batteries once a year, at least. Most smoke detectors will sound a "chirping" noise when the battery gets low, but do not wait for that. Always keep fresh batteries on hand. You should have at least one smoke detector on each level of your home or apartment. Protect the bedroom areas first, since most fatal home fires happens at night. Train everyone in your family to respond quickly at the sound of the smoke detector. Seconds count. Practice getting out safely. If your smoke detector is not working properly or it continues to false alarm, contact the Fire Department at 4222. Nutrition Month: The meaning of body weight By Lt. Susan Greenberg The body is made up of four kinds of substances: bone mineral; cells or active tissue; water; fat. A living body appears to have a solid sameness from day to day. However, the substances which make up the living body are not in a fixed state. There is a total exchange of particles in our tissues each day which amounts to about five percent of our body weight. The continuous exchange of particles in the body tissues accounts for continous change of body weight. Factors like temporary retention of water in the body, food in the stomach, the amount of water we lose through perspiration, and day-to-day kidney and intestinal functions can make our body weight, as measured on the bathroom scale, vary from day-to-day. A pattern of weight loss varies from individual to individual. It can be seen if we record our weight each day or each week. On a day-to-day record we may see a gain of one pound or more. This is usually due to retention of water. On a weekly record, it may also mean an actual gain of fat if caloric intake exceeded the body's needs. But, if we have controlled our calories faithfully, it is most likely the variation in the water content of fat tissue is responsible for these weight changes. Many people become discouraged if the scales do not show a daily reward for their dieting efforts. They are apt to give up their reducing program in frustration. Successful weight loss would be their. reward if they would only realize the importance of water retention in weight reduction. Fat tissue holds about 15 percent of water whether a person is overweight or not. In other words, seven pounds of body fat hold at least one pint (about one pound) of water. During weight reduction water often accumulates, particularly in middle-aged and elderly women. This may be due simply to the adipose (fat) tissue and the skin may not shrink back to the prefatness level as fast as the fat is being lost. The resulting empty space gets filled with fluid, which is eventually lost as the skin and underlying tissues shrink. Reducing salt intake and increasing physical activity minimizes this problem of water retention. A progressive and sustained gradual weight loss leads to less water retention and less wrinkles because it gives the skin time to follow the decrease in size of the individual as he reduces. This is another reason why "crash" diets should be avoided. If you reach a plateau in your weight loss efforts, and the pounds seem to be more difficult to get rid of, you should remember that this is your body's way of establishing its equilibrium at each new weight level. The unbreakable law of nature regarding energy (calorie) requirement is that when caloric intake falls below our energy requirements, stored fat is lost. Five hundred calories less than our body actually requires each day adds up to 3,500 calories less a week and a loss of one pound' of adipose tissue. One thousand calories less a day means a loss of two pounds a week.

"Final Four" determined, Duke sinks Navy 71-50 (AP) -The top two teams in the final Associated Press College Basketball poll have joined the party in Dallas, known as the "Final Four." Top-ranked Duke secured its ticket to Reunion Arena by sinking seventeenth-ranked Navy 71-50 in the NCAA East Regional Championship at East Rutherford, N.J. As has been the case all season, All-American Johnny Dawkins carried the Blue Devils, scoring a game-high 28 points. Duke now has a 20 game winning streak. The Midwest Regional Title game in Kansas City, Missouri, saw second-ranked Kansas topple North Carolina State 75-67. Kansas twin towers Danny Manning and Greg Dreiling combined for 41 points, leading the Jayhawks to their thirty-fifth victory in 38 outings this season. Duke led Navy by a 20-16, margin late in the first half, before ripping off 12 straight points for a 34-22 lead at intermission. Mark Alarie added 18 for Duke, which is 36-2, matching the NCAA's single season victory total. In 1948, Kentucky finished with a 36-3 record. Navy's David Robinson was splendid in defeat, pumping 23 points. Back in the Midwest, Kansas took charge behind Manning's five straight baskets, turning a 57-52 second-half deficit to a 62-58 lead. Manning finished with 22 points, while Dreiling scored 19. Chris Washburn and Charles Shackleford each scored 20 for N.C. State. So it will be Louisville against Louisiana State in the opener of the Final Four in Dallas next Saturday, followed by Duke against Kansas. Duke already owns a 92-86 win over Kansas earlier this season, the finals of the Big Apple NIT. The semifinals of the National Invitation Tournament are tonight at New York's Madison Square Garden. In the first game, Wyoming's Cowboys tangle with the Florida Gators. The nightcap will have the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs up against the Ohio State Buckeyes. The winners meet Wednesday night for the NIT Championship. Fan Fact (UPI) -Do you know the former Chicago Cub who now plays trumpet on Johnny Carson's "Tonight Show" band? Former Cub third baseman Carmen Fanzone is now a member of Doc Severnson's orchestra. Capitals win (AP) -The two best teams in the NHL's Patrick Division hooked up for their next-to-last regular-season meeting yesterday. At the Capital Centre, the Washington Capitals edged the Philadelphia Flyers 6-5 and closed within one point of the Patrick Division leaders. Bobby Gould's goal at 2:54 of the third period lifted the Caps to victory, a verdict which snapped Philadelphia's six-game winning streak. It was a see-saw affair, with the Flyers taking a 3-2 lead after one period, only to go down 5-4 after two before the NBA action light, Trail Blazers win (AP) -There were just three games on yesterday's NBA schedule, but two of those games had playoff ramifications. In Portland, the Trail Blazers got 32 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists from Clyde Drexler in a 112-102 win over the Sacramento Kings. Sacramento's Mike Woodson pumped in a season-high 39 points in a losing effort. The Spurs lost a chance to put some distance between themselves and Sacramento when they got shot down by the Seattle Supersonics 107-104. Elsewhere, a 20-foot jumper by Joe Barry Carroll at the buzzer lifted the Golden State Warriors to a 113-111 win over the Denver Nuggets. Carroll finished with 31 points, scoring all but the final two in the first three quarters. NBA scoring leader Alex English of Denver tallied 34 points, his fortieth outing of 30 or more points this season. see-saw game with Flyers teams traded third period goals. The Caps have a chance to take the division lead tomorrow night when they host the Boston Bruins. After that, both the Caps and Flyers will have six regular-season games left, with the regular-season final matching those teams at Philadelphia April 6. Elsewhere, the Chicago Blackhawks took sole possession of first place in the Norris Division with a 5-3 win over the New York Rangers. That win put the Hawks two points ahead of the idle St. Louis Blues. The loss kept the Rangers three points behind the Pittsburgh Penguins in the battle for the fourth and final Patrick Division playoff spot. A two-goal performance by Mike Foligno helped send the Buffalo Sabres to a 6-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings. The Sabres thus gained a one-point advantage over the Hartford Whalers in their battle for the fourth and final Adams Division playoff spot. Meanwhile, the Whalers and Boston Bruins skated to a 5-5 tie in Hartford. The Bruins are three points up Hartford and two ahead Buffalo as they try to ho on to third place in the Adams Division. In Winnipeg, the Calgary Flames scored four times in the opening period, enroute to a 7-4 win over the Jets. The Sportsman By Charles. Morey Vince Coleman can fly on the base paths and, this season, expects to zoom to dizzying heights in the record book. The second-year outfielder of the St. Louis Cardinals has set a couple of goals for himself that appear to be in outer space. For openers, would you believe 200 stolen bases? The Major League record of 130 was set by Rickey Henderson, now with the Yankees, when he played for Oakland. Coleman had 110 successful larcenies in 135 tries last year as a rookie. Raising that total to 200 would seem to be almost impossible, but he has given it a lot of thought. For one thing, he wants to cut last season's total of 115 strikeouts about in half. The idea is that if he can make contact with the ball more often, his rapid spikes will get him to first base safely. Secondly, his grandiose plan includes a number of steals of third base, in addition to second. He thinks stealing third is easier than motoring to second, and he has the figures to back that up. He made good on 26 of 31 attempts to reach the hot corner in 1985. Coleman says you can get a larger lead off second base than off first. The pitcher has to spin if he wants to attempt to pick him off second. Vince says he can beat that kind of throw back to the bag with ease. The second phase of Coleman's blueprint for 1986 involves hitting. He wants to punch out 200 hits this year, in addition to stealing 200 bases. That would be a first. Vince made 170 hits last year. Obviously, if he draws fewer "K's" and makes contact more often, he will get more hits. Whether he can raise the ante of 200 is something else again. Not many players can. He could, of course, do more bunting. He gets down the line so fast that any kind of decent bunt guarantees him a hit. Coleman was 1985's National League Rookie of the Year, but missed the World Series against Kansas City because of an injury suffered in a freak accident, a collision with a roll-up tarpaulin. He had more trouble this spring, when he and his agent had a hot contract dispute with the Cardinal front office. He was not satisfied with the settlement, and has been vocal about it. He insists it will not affect his play. Vince says he wants to be the best leftfielder in baseball. He did not say best outfielder because, as he points out, he plays alongside a guy named Willie McGee. Buddy Ryan was feisty and outspoken when he coached the Chicago Bears' defense, ask Mike Ditka about that, and he has no plans to change. Ryan is the new coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, and he is well aware he has a tough job ahead of him. He is going to be the same straight-talking guy he was in Chicago. Ryan says, "The biggest mistake I could make would be to change my personality now that I am head coach." Ditka sounded off long and loud in less than complimentary terms about Ryan when Buddy left Chicago. Ryan delivered a neat rebuttal recently, when he said, "I would love to have an assistant in Philadelphia who would take care of Buddy Ryan the way Ryan took care of Ditka in Chicago." Ryan expects to use the celebrated four-six defense he made famous in Chicago when the Eagles begin play this fall. He will not have the same personnel, a fact he is well aware of. He thinks the Eagles are not as far behind the Bears in defense as most people think. For openers, Buddy says the Philadelphia secondary is better, and the defensive line is just as good. Are you listening, Richard Dent? Ryan admits the linebackers do not measure up to the Chicago head-hunters. What set of linebackers does? What Ryan is looking for is a Walter Payton-type to carry the ball. He may have to do more than a little looking around to find one. New T-Ball Field -A new T-ball field, built in one week, was dedicated Saturday. AKl Michael Wolford (left), of NAS Supply and Capt.

(Photo by PH1 Glenn Davis) Glimpse Brazilian Grand Prix (UPI) -There were shouts of "Viva Brazil" following the opener of the Formula One Racing season. For the first time since 1975, Brazilians finished one-two in the Brazilian Grand Prix in Rio de Janeiro. Former two-time world champion Nelson Piquet was first across the finish line in a Honda-powered Williams. Countryman Ayrton Senna was second in a Lotus. Kentucky Derby (UPI) -Unbeaten "Meadowlake" has bee withdrawn from the Kentucky Derby prep campaign because foot problems. Trainer Bert Sonnier says it is uncertain whether the colt will be ready for the Preakness or Belmont Stakes, the second and third legs of the triple crown. Seth Hancock's "Country Light" took yesterday's Louisiana Derby, finishing one-and-one-half in front of "Bolshoi Boy." Biggs Wins Decision (UPI) -The heavyweight champion for 1984, Tyrell Biggs, is now unbeaten in nine professional fights. Biggs did not come out of yesterday's fight against Jeff Sims in great shape. He injured his right shoulder in the third round, and his left eye was closed for the last three rounds. Despite the obstacles, Biggs pounded out a 10-round decision over Sims in Reno, Nev. Motorcraft Gatornationals (UPI) -"Big Daddy" Don Garlits became the first drag racer to break the 270 mile-an-hour barrier during the Motorcraft Gatornationals in Gainesville, Fla. Garlite was clocked at a speed of 272.360 miles an hour in a semi-final win over NFL quarterback Dan Pastorini.
