of a nearly three-month fight to
install the Texan in the top Pentagon
office for which he long hungered.
The result was an anti-climax. The
White House threw in the towel on
the nomination early Thursday and
Bush--knowing he was doomed to
fail in his first confrontation with the
Democratic-controlled congress--
made an afternoon trip to New York
to promote anti-drug activities.
The final few hours of ceremonial
debate on the nomination included
some harsh language from Tower's
supporters, but his foes steadfastly
reiterated their concerns about
whether he could be trusted in the
nuclear chain of command.
Republican Senate leader Robert
Dole of Kansas said he had spoken
with Tower, a 24-year senate veteran,
and described him as "disappointed.
Not bitter, but disappointed."
Sen. John Warner, R-Va., senior
Republican on the Senate Armed

final tally would fall largely along
party lines.
"This...does not represent an effort
to bring harm to the President (and)

I hope will be a good working
relationship," said Mitchell.
Republicans, who managed to win
declarations of support from only
three of the five Democrats needed to
assure the job for Tower, signaled the
fight was over when Dole dropped
his surprise proposal that Tower get a
six-month trial period and White
House spokesman Marlin Fitzwater
told reporters, "we fought a long

"If I can do anything, I can count

Parents to get

liberal leave
QUARRY HEIGHTS (US
SOUTHCOM PAO) - A liberal
leave policy is in effect for civilian
personnel who wish to take
children to school during this
current absence of school buses.
Supervisors also have the
authority to excuse absences and
tardiness of less than one hour
without charge to annual leave if
such absences are for adequate
reasons.
Modest adjustments in duty
hours, mutually agreed upon by
the supervisor and the employee is
another tool which can be used to
provide time for parents to
transport children to and from
school.
All supervisors are encouraged
to the extent permitted by their
mission and within the confines of
the above guidance to
accommodate employee needs to
the extent possible.

training exercise which started
Tuesday.
He was taken initially to the
Soto Cano Hospital as an
outpatient, but with the
recurrence of the pain was
admitted to the Soto Cano
Hospital Tuesday evening for
treatment of internal bleeding in
the lower abdomen, possibly
caused by a broken blood vessel.

Navy selects Foster as Sailor of the Year


story by Debra Zepka,
photo by John Wadman

U.S. NAVAL STATION
PANAMA CANAL (NAVSTA
PAO) - SH 1 William E. Foster was
recently chosen U.S. Naval Station
Panama Canal Sailor of the Year for
1988.
This year's competition consisted
of three candidates - all former or
current Sailor of the Quarter
winners.
The committee board members
were the U.S. Naval Station Panama
Canal's Executive Officer and
Command Master Chief, along with
all department heads.
The questions were tough,
covering everything from current
events and politics to leadership


skills. The result of the competition
was close, but the unanimous vote
went to Foster, who was chosen for
his many professional achievements
and exemplary military bearing.
His outstanding efforts as the
Command Career Counselor and
Leading Petty Officer of the Supply
Service Division greatly enhanced
the readiness of the Naval Station.
One of his most notable
accomplishments was the upgrading
of all quality assurance and
inventory requirements for the
warehousing and financial control
branch. He initiated standard
operating procedures which ensured
accountability and improved
inventory control.
As a result, the recent Supply
Management Inspection team found


and inventory accuracy rate of 98.7
percent - the best in COMNAV-
AIRLANT.
There are several benefits Foster
can look forward to as recipient of
the Sailor of the Year award. He has
received a 96-hour liberty, a Naval
Station plaque, a parking spot in
front of Pier 58, and a $100 Savings
Bond from the Navy League, along
with many other certificates and
acknowledgements of his accomplish-
ments.
Foster, along with his wife
Cynthia, will be leaving soon for the
United States. His next assignment
will be the Naval Hospital,
Portsmouth, Va. He will be working
with Deployment Medical Systems
for the new hospital ships located
there.


USARSO presents Humanitarian Service Award


FORT CLAYTON (USARSO
PAO) - At the Civilian Awards
Ceremony held last month, the
Civilian Award for Humanitarian
Service was presented to three
individuals for attempting to save a
man's life.
Receiving the award was John
Stromburg, recreation assistant,
Community Recreation Division;
Kaye Richey, photographer,
Training and Support Center; and
Blair Bates, a recent graduate of


Balboa High School.
At 11:10 p.m., January 13,1989,
Eddie Nelson, a 68-year-old
bartender employed by the Amador
American Legion Club, suffered a
stroke while tending bar resulting in
immediate loss of respiration and
heartbeat.
Stromburg, Richey and Bates
witnessed Nelson fall behind the bar
and took immediate action in
applying resuscitation. The three
men applied mouth-to-mouth


resuscitation and external heart
massage, taking turns, for about
forty-five minutes, effectively
restoring Nelson's pulse and
respiration.
Although still unconscious, he was
breathing on his own when the
ambulance and fire personnel
arrived. He was transported to
Gorgas Army Hospital and finally to
Santo Tomas Hospital in Panama.
The Civilian Award for
Humanitarian Service is granted to


individuals who have distinguished
themselves by meritorious direct
"hands-on" participation in an act or'
operation of a humanitarian nature
directed toward an individual or
groups of individuals.
Although Nelson died a short
while later, this unselfish act
* performed by the three individuals
clearly meets the criteria for this
award and is an example of selfless
humanitarian teachings and beliefs.

Volunteer 'soldiers' taste mud, leaves, MRES


by Nancy Levis

FORT SHERMAN (USARSO
PAO) - Residents of Fort Sherman
are used to trucks filled with troops
rolling down the road. Recently,
those trucks contained an unusually
high percentage of women "soldiers."
Carload after carload of women
descended on Fort Sherman early in
the morning wearing their spouses'
uniforms with belts tightly cinched,
pants cuffed several times, boots
stuffed with extra pairs of socks (to
keep them from falling off), and
canteens filled with water. More than
100 Ladies' Day participants were
ready for their day in the jungle.
After signing in, the women were
assigned to squads of nine or 10 and
handed over to their sergeant. Lt.
Col. Corson Hilton, commanding
officer, Jungle Operations Training
Center (JOTC), began the day by
providing the women with
information about Fort Sherman
and a briefing on their mission.
An environmental lecture


followed, with careful attention
given to plants and animals that are
dangerous to humans, both in the
jungle and in the housing areas. A
Fort Sherman Environment
Training Center tour followed.
Following their survival training,
the squads climbed into trucks,
applied their camouflage and were
off for a one-mile march through the
jungle. They climbed hills, edged
their way over log "bridges" and
slogged through muddy streams up
to their knees.
As the squads made their way out
of the jungle they were invited to sit
down to a gourmet lunch of Meals-
Ready-to-Eat (MRE's). Groups of
women sat down under the palms to
enjoy ham and chicken loaf, beans,
and dehydrated peaches served out
of an attractive brown plastic pouch.
After a short break, the women
were off again - this time to the
rappelling tower or the obstacle
course. After being instructed in the
proper way to tie a Swiss seat, most
of the ladies donned gloves and


climbed the rappelling tower. All
those brave enough to hurl
themselves over theedge agreed that
it wasn't as bad as it looked.
"It was an experience," said Olda
Gendreau. "At first I was very scared,
but it was okay once you let go."
While some of the women agreed
to rappell from mock helicopter
skids, most wpre relieved when they
found out there wouldn't be time to
try the reknowned "Australian" or
head-first method.
For those who looked for a
different sort of challenge, the
obstacle course provided 13 of them.
The squads competed for the best
time as they climbed fences, hills,
cargo nets and a ladder tall enough to
reach the roof of nearly every
building on Fort Sherman. For those
who really wanted to look like they'd
done something, they could run
through the waves along the beach
and low crawl through a pit of
muddy water as they ducked
concertina wire above their heads.
Some women couldn't get enough,


so they cleaned off the mud from the
obstacle course in the boat capsized
drill. After tossing out passengers
and oars, the boat was capsized and
then righted again. Tired and wet, all
that remained of their training was a
short paddle back to shore for their
graduation ceremony.
While discussing the day's events,
both troops and instructors agreed
Ladies' Day '89 was a success.
"This has been the best group of
women I've worked with in the three
years I've been here," said Sgt. Chris
Christoff of his squad. "Everybody
was really motivated."
Hilton agreed in his closing
remarks at the graduation ceremony.
"I've got to take my hat off to some of
the hardest working women we've
had at Ladies' Day."
Hilton also gave credit to Capt.
Charles Albright, the squad leaders
and staff members who helped to
make Ladies' Day a safe learning
experience for the spouses and family
members of military personnel
stationed in Panama.

grounds. After the ribbon cutting
ceremony the U.S. Army South 79th
Army Band opened with a parade
around the fair grounds where they
performed in concert for one hour,
followed by the night's entertainment.
Each day there was continuous
entertainment on stage. Every night
featured a Department of Defense
show and a variety of local talent
performed.
There was seven rides for children
and adults in the center of the fair
grounds and new this year was a
roller coaster. The roller coaster was
too large to be put in the fair grounds
and had. to be put outside the
grounds, but was a very popular ride.
With the help of the military units
and the scores of volunteers, this was
the biggest Atlantic CFA Fair.
Saturday afternoon was filled with
sports and games. There were sack
races, balloon stamp, three-legged
races, Pine Wood Derby (Cub
Scouts), egg toss and more for the
children.
Adults participated in team sports
such as tug-a-war, sack races, egg
toss and the famous greased pole
climb. The greased pole climb was
won by an American team for the

Annual cayuco race begins March 17


BALBOA HEIGHTS (PCC PAO)
- With the 1989 annual Explorer
Ocean-to-Ocean Cayuco Race a
week off, participants and spectators
alike are geared up for the event.
The race takes on special
significance this year as one of the
events commemorating the Panama
Canal's 75th anniversary. Each crew
member will receive a tank top and,
painter's cap with the 75th
anniversary logo, and each boat will
display the logo sticker on its port
side.


A total of 42 boats will compete,
including 37 in the trophy class.
Eighteen of the trophy boats will be
manned by all-male crews, 12 will be
crewed by females, and seven will
have coed crews. These crews
represent Explorer Post 21 on the
Pacific side, Ship 9 on the Atlantic,
Post 10 in Gamboa and the
Panamanian Rovers. Trophy-class
cayucos have four-person crews, and
this year for the first time, patch
boats must have at least five.
The race runs from March 17


~-. -.J /i

r -.�~ih~m S
f tpr7:


through 19. Festivities begin at noon
Friday near the Panama Canal Yacht
Club in Cristobal. At that time,
judges will determine which crews
should be awarded prizes for the best
non-professionally painted cayucos
and paddles.
The race itself begins at 3 p.m. The
first leg is a rough-water, seven-mile
sprint to the north end of Gatun
Locks, with the fastest boats usually
arriving in less than 50 minutes and
the less-fortunate crews straggling in
up to two hours later.
The trophy boat that wins the leg
will be presented a trophy that
evening at the Gatun Yacht Club
during the annual spaghetti dinner.
The dinner begins at 6:30 and will
include homemade spaghetti sauce
and noodles, "micha" bread, salad
and dessert. Tickets are available
through post leaders or by calling Jay
or Lori Gibson (56-6384), Dick
Horne (52-5185), Cleve Soper (52-
2423) or Sue or Lew Stabler
(43-5487).

The second stretch of the race
begins bright and early Saturday
morning. Crews will assemble at the
Gatun Lake Landing at 6 a.m. and


the starting gun will be fired at 7 a.m.
The 22-mile stretch across Gatun
Lake is a most gruesome test of
endurance, looked upon with dread
by many crews. The fastest can
usually be sighted within about three
hours from a Dredging Division
vantage point in Gamboa.
Sunday's competition begins at 8
a.m., with an eight-mile sprint
through Gaillard Cut to the north
end of Pedro Miguel Locks. When all
races complete this stretch, they are
.eased into the locks and lowered to
the level of Miraflores Lake.
They then sprint to the north end
of Miraflores Locks for another
lockage, this time down to the level of
the Pacific Ocean and the home
stretch. This is another hard sprint,
which ends at the Diablo Boat
Landing.

At 6 that evening, the tired
paddlers will be recognized in an
awards ceremony at the Curundu
Junior High School cafetorium.
Final times will be announced, and
trophies and other prizes will be
awarded to crews in various
categories.


Keeping your homepoison proof can be afull-time job


ANCON (MEDDAC) - March
12-16 is Poison Prevention Week and
a good time for all parents to correct
situations that may lead to
poisonings. If you can answer the
questions below with yes, your home
is considered safe.
- Do all medicines have child
restraint caps?
- Are all potentially harmful
products in their original containers?
- Are all of your detergents, drain
cleaners, bleaches, floor and


furniture polish stored in locked or
high cabinets?
- Do you store hazardous
substances in cupboards where no
food is kept?
- Do you store medicine in locked
cabinets?
- Do you throw out unused
portions of a prescription after
recovery from an illness?
- Do you remove medicine from
your purse so children cannot
explore and ingest?


- Do you keep nail polish and
remover in a safe place?
- Do you store pesticides and
insecticides under lock and key?
- Are all your plants
non-poisonous?
- Do you keep gasoline and
kerosene in properly labeled
containers out of reach of children?
Recently, there have been children
who have ingested a large number of
vitamins with iron. Although
vitamins are not universally


recommended for children, iron .is
never recommended unless the child
is diagnosed as anemic. Iron can be
very toxic when a large amount is
ingested and therefore should only be
taken when prescribed by a doctor.
Parents remember any medicine
(including Tylenol and aspirin)
cleaning item, fuel or make up can be
considered a poison when ingested.
Make sure the poison control
number, 252-7500, is close by your
phone.


The Provost Marshal's Corner


Hello gentle readers. Yes, this is
the Provost Marshal's Corner that
you were looking for. The new
opening line is an attempt to
placate one of our readers who
was bothered by the old one. He
complained that it was plagiarized
from a well known sportscaster.
Since we disapprove of
plagiarism from such disreputable
sources, we will change to an
opening plagiarized from Mark
Twain. In a column about crime
and its sometimes foolish
perpetrators, it would hardly do
to steal from any but the best.
Our opening story concerns
charges of trespassing, poaching
an endangered species, com-
municating a threat (civil
charges). Like most of our more
imaginative charges, this non-
routine entry orginates on the
Atlantic side.
Three off duty soldiers were
returning to Fort Sherman from
Hideaway Beach in the late
afternoon when they spotted a
man walking along the dirt road
with a brace of iguanas. The
woman in the group felt sorry for
the poor, trussed-up lizards and
told her companions to stop.
After all, she explained, hunting
them was contrary to Panamanian
law and military regulations.
When they came to a stop, the
hunter and his two (until then


unnoticed) companions rushed up
to the car. They probably thought
that anyone stopping on that
lonely road was offering them a
ride. They really should have
checked before tossing the
iguanas inside, because the
soldiers took off with the iguanas
but not the hunters.
The trio then took the poor
lizards to the Fort Sherman zoo
where they could live without
being chased by hungry hunters.
Later that evening, as they
relaxed at one of their houses,
there came a knock on the door.
The hunters had recognized the
car and were looking for the fruits
of their'illegal if traditional labors.
From their point of view they had
been robbed and weren't going to
stand for it.
The junior member of the trio
realized that some unpleasantness
might result from the impending
interview and called for the MPs.
At the same time her companions
opened the door and faced the
irate hunters who demanded the
return of tomorrow's lunch. They
said that they had worked hard for
the lizards (as they undoubtedly
had) and weren't going to leave
without them.
When asked for identification,
one of the hunters went to his
truck, an action which worried the
GIs considering the anger the


hunters were showing. The worry
was justified when the hunter
pulled out a machete and got very
belligerent.

At this point the MPs arrived
just like the cavalry in a grade B
movie. The hunters were arrested
and placed in handcuffs and
everyone went to the joint
MP/PDF station where it could
be sorted out. On the seat of the
hunter's truck, the MPs found two
knives, a pair of bolt cutters and
another trussed-up iguana.

After the hunters had been
issued letters barring them from
the military bases, they were
released to the PDF. The PDF
decided that the breach of
Panamanian law required the
attention of the civil courts and
took custody of the hunters, their
weapons and their prey.
The GIs are being considered
for the Nate Gail Memorial
Conservation Award. That is
assuming that Dr. Gail leaves us
some day and such an award is
instituted in his memory.
In a country where the fish fly
and the birds swim, things are not
always what they seem. A certain
nameless man found that such
confusion can even extend to the
matter of gender.


He met a ravishing young lady
on Fourth of July Ave. and took
her to the VFW. Much to his
surprise, the lady turned out to be
a guy!.
At this point, the angry young
man made a strategic mistake.
Instead of taking his companion
back to the starting point and
sneaking away, he raised his fist
and beat on the pretender.
The result of this intemperate
venting of his spleen was that the
civilian authorities became
involved and that meant that the
military authorities did too. What
had started out as a matter of deep
personal embarrassment became a
matter of deep public em-
barassment. It also became a
matter of judicial interest as the
person of confused sexuality
pressed charges of assault.
In the immortal words of Porky
Pig, "Th.. th..that's all folks." For
this week at least. If you're still not
sated, and you want more
adventures in law enforcement,
then you'll have to buy next
week's edition at the same low
price. Keep smiling until then.
Just a reminder to all parents.
While dropping off their children
at school to drive carefully in the
school zones. Also, please
expedite the procedure to alleviate
traffic congestion.

1978 CG provides AUTOVON access


HOWARD AFB(1978th CG/PA)
-- "Operator Seven, may I help you?"
Beyond the voice, masculine or
feminine, we think of an operator
just waiting to serve "us" alone - but
there are many of "us."
"It mostly feels good, but is often
overwhelming," says AlC Tonya R.
Wilson, one of 20 communications-
computer systems operators who
work the 'round-the clock Tactical
Switchboard, known as the TAC
Switch, of the 1978th Commu-
nications Group.
The operators are responsible for
telephone communication between
the United States and Central and
South America. This is in support of
the 24th Composite Wing, and the
more than 25 other U.S.Air Force
units at Howard Air Force Base and
Albrook Air Force Station.
"Good customer/operator
relationships are something we work
at with every call. Accuracy, speed,
and courtesy are principal guides for
each operator, as are politeness and
tact. We are eager to do everything
we can to get the call connected
quickly and correctly," Wilson said.
TAC Switch handles a daily average
of 120 calls during normal work
hours. The switchboard is for those
individuals who need priority
Automated Voice Network also
known as AUTOVON, access to
support critical command and
control needs. In other words, an
official need for placing long distance


calls.
TAC Switch consists of 100
subscriber groups. A drop line is the
direct line from a base telephone
located in personal quarters or a
designated controlled area which
comes directly into the TAC switch


for immediate communications
response -- such as a hotline.

"What sometimes frustrates some
customers is that we only have four
AUTOVON access lines and one
direct trunk line to the TAC switch

Communications Group, writes down a callers'request before placing the call

Penton)


operator at Langly Air Force Base,
Va. Since this is a Tactical Air
Command base and Langley is where
the command headquarters is, we
process a lot of calls to there," she
said.
To aid our customers when lines
are busy, we recommend an
alternative. Administrative
AUTOVON service is provided to
non-direct dial telephones by the
Joint Overseas Switchboard, located
in the Corozal area, by dialing 285-
6113.
The Howard TAC switch operator
will provide the customer a JOSS
control number. JOSS service is
recommended because it has access
to 40 AUTOVON circuits, versus
four at the TAC switch," said
Wilson.
Anyone who has ever used
AUTOVON has probably been
"bumped" off their line --
disconnected. The mission drives
these "bumps."
"To make sure high precedence
users have quick access to
AUTOVON lines, the National
Communications System voice
precedence system on AUTOVON
establishes a flash override capability
which simply means this is the
highest placed precedence call along
with flash, immediate, priority and
routine. AUTOVON users must use
the lowest precedence consistent with
operational mission or necessity for
each call placed," said Wilson.


Single soldiers have chance to voice needs, wants


FORT CLAYTON (USARSO
DESPER) - The old Army said,
"No private rooms or telephones."
Today's Army is saying, "Well give it
some thought."
More living space, private
telephones, and full visitation rights
in the barracks were among the top
recommendations handed to the
Department of the Army by the
Single Soldier group at the 1988
Army Family Action Planning
Conference.
The annual conference, which
brought delegates from USARSO to
Alexandria, Va., serves to
"implement programs and policies


aimed at achieving partnership,
wellness, and sense of community" in
the Army, according to DA.
In other words, and in this case,
the single soldiers voiced their wants
and needs, and the Army is taking
serious consideration.
The single soldiers, represented by
every major command in tle Army,
asked that the quality of life in the
barracks be upgraded. This includes
having the option to personalize
living areas with luxuries such as
curtains, rugs and telephones, and
that space allocations be re-
evaluated. Also, more storage and
parking space, and a higher ratio of


washers and dryers.
Other issues included more rights
for pregnant soldiers, equal
treatment of soldiers reardless of
marital status, and a Department of
the Army advocate to monitor and
lobby for single soldier issues.
Currently, pregnant soldiers who
are unmarried must wait until after
giving birth to apply for housing.
This may change. The group asked
that soldiers in such situations be
allowed housing at the beginning of
their seventh month of pregnancy, or
be authorized to live off-post with the
BAQ/ Without Dependent rate until


birth.
Single soldiers are also faced with:
difficulties that don't affect married
soldiers. Where to obtain a meal after
a late-night shift, for one, and
barracks room inspections. The
group also voiced concern that single
soldiers shouldn't be required to
attend off-duty functions that are
geared towards married soldiers.
To alleviate these and other
problems facing the single soldier,
the group asked for a DA proponent
to represent it in Washington, D.C.,
and push for the special needs and
concerns of the Army's single soldier.


USARSO holds February Quality of Life meeting


FORT CLAYTON (USARSO
PAO) - The February Quality of
Life meeting was called to order at
the Fort Clayton NCO Club by Lt.
Col. James K. Waters, Garrison
Commander. A good representation
of the community was present.
The meeting addressed the issue of
identification card checks at AAFES
stores on Albrook AFS.
Checking ID cards at the door
becomes a requirement when a
store's monthly sales reach $65,000.
Regardless of monthly sales, all
stores must check identification at
the cash register.
Mayors who want to sponsor teen
dances or other community projects
must pay a labor fee to use the
swimming pool and large bohios.
In April, a pilot credit card
program for the Atlantic community
will be initiated for tracking
commissary purchases in order to
deter contraband activities.
Purchases will be tracked by use of
the sponsor's social security number.
Only "reasonable" force is
authorized when confronting a
burglar inside your home. Only when
an actual life threatening incident


occurs, can extreme measures be
taken to detain the burglar or protect
yourself from him.
If valuables are stolen, you must be
able to substantiate your claim. For
more information, contact the Staff
Judge Advocates Office.
A project to bank the curbs on the
Clayton-Albrook road will be
entered into the DEH system. DEH
will also look at the lower 800 area to
decide if the fence can be turned out
toward the woods.
For the current year, DEH's main
projects include exterior painting
and roof repair. The projects have
been the reason 75 percent of the
communities' families are without
dishwashers and garbage disposals.
The NCO Club's lower floor is for
senior NCO use. The club is looking
to provide a better family
atmosphere.
Quality of Life meetings are held at
9 a.m. on the 16th of every month at
the Fort Clayton NCO Club. Every
one is invited to attend.
Next month's issues include the
possibility of providing a secure area
for parking recreational vehicles; and
why the northeast section of the


Clayton Recreational Park is being
leveled by bull dozers for a new "ball"
field.
Do the MP's inspect video
cassettes or computer floppy disks to
ensure the government isn't packing
and moving illegally copied materials
prior to shipping household goods?
Can the Building 95 shoppette stay
open 24 hours daily for the barrack's
residents.


Residents also want to know if a
sign could be placed at the Clayton
Guest House and the front gate bus
stops, that offers a suggestion to
passing motorists to "Give a Soldier
a Ride?"

And, can residents of Army
Government leased quarters send
representatives to the Quality of Life
meeting?

USSR givesManagua $500 million in arms


WASHINGTON (UPI) -- The
Soviet Union and its East bloc allies
have sent more than $500 million' in
sophisticated arms to Nicaragua's
Sandinista government during 1988
according to a State Department
report.
The unclassified report said the
Soviet bloc shipped the bulk of the
military aid since the March 1988
signing of the Sapoa agreement, the
Central American pact calling for
Nicaraguan progress toward
democracy and a cease-fire in the war
between the Sandinistas and the
U.S.-backed Contra rebels.
Though there were no deliveries of
military aircraft or helicopter
gunships, according to United Press
International, the'leftist Sandinistas
have set up an extensive military
radar system that "can monitor
aircraft movements far off their
coasts and deep into Honduras, El
Salvador and Costa Rica." The
report assured, "there is no other
comparable radar system anywhere
in the region."
State Department figures show the
East bloc has supplied the
Sandinistas with 140,000 metric tons
of military equipment at an
estimated cumulative value of $2.7
billion since 1980, when Soviet aid
first began.
In 1988, according to the report,
the shipments totaled 19,000 metric
tons at an estimated value of $55
million. With the exception of 1986,
the year of peak activity in the bloody
civil war, the 1988 figure is a record
for military aid to the Sandinistas,
the report said.
At the White House, President
Bush described Soviet arms
shipments as "large" and said they


are one of the considerations in the
policy of "linkage" in dealing with
the Kremlin on other issues as such as


trade.
The Bush administration is
expected to propose further


U.S. denies visas for Nicaraguan,

Cuban, RP mayors to attend meet


WASHINGTON (Reuter) -
The State Department said
Wednesday it had denied visas to
three mayors from Cuba,
Nicaragua and Panama to attend
a narcotics conference in New
York, citing doubts about those
nation's anti-drug efforts.
State Department spokesman
Charles Redman said the decision
was taken because "we questioned
the seriousness of these
governments to undertake anti-
narcotics cooperation with the
U.S. (and in each case) the mayors
are in office with the sanction of
the highest authorities in his or her
government."
The mayors are Carlos Alberto
Carrion Cruz of Managua, Pedro
Maria Chavez Gonzalez of
Havana and Jilma Noriega
Jurado of Panama City.
The United States has no
diplomatic relations with Cuba
and does not recognize the
government of President Manuel
Solis Palma of Panama.
It does have diplomatic
relations with Nicaragua, but
relations with the leftist
Sandinista government have been
hostile for the past eight years.
Presidential decrees restricting
visas for citizens have been in
effect since 1985 for Cuba, June
1988 for Panama and October


1988 for Nicaragua.
The United States Wednesday
announced its decision to grant
visas so three members of the PLO
could attend a New York
conference on the Middle East on
the grounds that none had been
involved in terrorist activities.
Asked why one group of
applicants was judged on personal
behavior and the other on the
behavior of their governments,
Redman resisted a comparison.
"There are different laws. There
are different regulations. There
are different interests invoked in
all cases. That's just a
commonsense approach,"he said.
Redman noted Panama's de
facto leader, Gen. Manuel
Antonio Noriega, was indicted in
Florida on drug trafficking
charges and his country has been
barred from receiving U.S. aid by
President Bush for not
cooperating in anti-drug efforts.
Redman said: "There's evidence
of Cuban government complicity
in the drug trade, through either
direct involvement or granting
traffickers permission to use
Cuban air space and/or
territory."
He said U.S. indictments on
narcotics charges against
members of the Cuban
government remain outstanding.


humanitarian aid for the Contras
when the current $27 million package
runs out at the end of March and
Secretary of State James Baker told
the House Foreign Affairs
Committee recently that the
possibility of requesting "lethal" aid
was not ruled out.
In the arms supply report, the most
dramatic increase was in Nicaragua's
inventory of anti-aircraft guns and
missile launchers. The State
Department estimated the
Sandinistas now have 700 anti-
aircraft guns in place as well as 500
missile launchers and "numerous"
radar installations. That would make
any attempt to supply Contras inside
Nicargaua by air extremely risky.
Much of the 1988 estimate of
Soviet bloc shipments, especially in
the air defense system, came from
information brought by Roger
Miranda, a Nicaraguan military
defector who had access to highly
classified information from the
Nicaraguan defense minister's office.
The State Department said the
Sandinistas now have 150 tanks and
250 other armored vehicles, most of
them shipped from eastern nations in
1984. The country's military force
stands at more than 120,000
including reserves, military and
security personnel. The report also
noted that force is nearly equal to the
total armed forces of El Salvador,
Costa Rica and Honduras.'
The U.S.-backed Contras had
between 10,000 and 15,000 men
under arms at the time of the Sapoa
agreement in 1988, but that number
has dwindled as the guerrillas have
lost much of their U.S. financial
support and as the Contra leadership
has split over political issues.


Salvador rebels refuse


SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador
(AP) -- Leftist guerrillas on
Wednesday accused the government
of "delay and deceit" in responding
to their peace overture and said they
would not meet with government
officials before the presidential
election.
The rebels also urged their
supporters to boycott the March 19
election but held out the possibility
of renewing the peace initiative later
this year.
The rebel communique,
telephoned to a local radio station,
put at least a temporary end to the
tentative peace process they initiated
Jan. 24.
The Farabundo Marti National
Liberation Front had offered to
participate in and abide by the results
of the election if it were postponed
until September and certain security
and anti-fraud measures were


adopted.
The Christian Democratic
government of President Jose
Napoleon Duarte was unable or
unwilling to arrange talks with the
rebels to consider the plan.
Opposition to the plan by the
legislature, controlled by the rightist
Republican Nationalist Alliance,
hindered the governmnet's response
to the rebel overture.
The rebel communique noted the
government took more than a month
to respond to the Jan. 24 proposal
and said that with the elections now
ten days off, time had run out.
"In these conditions of so much
delay and deceit...the Farabundo
Marti National Liberation front

Argentina disagrees with creditors onpayments


BUENOS AIRES, Argentina
(AP) -- Economy minister Juan
Sourrouille said Monday that the
Argentine government "doesn't
agree with the view of its creditors"
that debt repayment is the country's
top priority.
"It is necessary to find a point of
coincidence that economic growth is
a priority," he told reporters.
Nevertheless, Sourrouille added,
"We maintain the position that we
should pay something like half of the
interest (owed)."


Argentina's $59 billion debt is one
of the highest among developing
countries. Interest amounts to
between $5 billion to $6 billion a
year. Payments drain off funds the
government would rather use for
investment.
Sourrouille and two other top
economic advisers to President Raul
Alfonsin denied that price controls
were under consideration here, along
with a moratorium on interest
payments on the foreign debt.
Treasury Secretary Mario


Brodershn, who appeared at a news
conference with Sourrouille and
Central Bank President Jose Luis
Machinea, said Argentina owes
about $2 billion in interest because
world rates have been forced up by
the U.S. budget deficit.
The United States "is exporting to
other countries its fiscal deficit,"
Brodersohn said.
Machinea said Argentina's
outstanding arrears to commercial
banks total $2.2 billion.
"This is nothing new," he said. "It


is the policy of this government to
pay one-half the interest on the
debt."
Opposition parties called for
Alfonsin's economic team to resign
as interest rates topped 30 percent
last month; the austral-Argentina's
currency-plunged by 50 percent
against the dollar, and producers
withdrew from a voluntary program
of wage and price controls.
The furor compelled Alfonsin to
publicly defend his advisers and
policies in a speech Sunday night.

Chaplains in Honduras also ministers of morale


by Staff Sgt. Sandy Gregory
102nd Public Affairs Detachment
Mississippi Army National Guard

CAMP CASTLE, Honduras -
Keeping morale high is a major
concern for commanders in charge of
operations during Joint Task Force-
16 (JTF-16) exercise. Fuertes
Caminos (Strong Roads) '89,
currently underway in north central
Honduras.
"In an austere environment, away
from familiar surroundings, good
attitudes can deteriorate rapidly,"
said camp Chaplain (Capt.) Keith
Kivlin.
Kivlin, a recently assigned member
of the Ohio Army National Guard's
16th Engineer Brigade in Columbus,
Ohio, said he is more of a "morale
officer" than a chaplain, because
most of his duties are geared toward
counseling the soldiers when
personal problems arise.
The exercise which includes
soldiers from Ohio Army and Air
National Guard, U.S. Army
Reserves, active Army and
Honduran military forces, involves
stressful conditions in a remote
mountain base camp. The Task
Force is providing overseas training
for these units by upgrading and
constructing a farm-to-market road
network.
In addition to the road work, the
Task Force will be involved in civic
action programs such as medical
visits and the upgrade of a regional
hospital. "This can become a
stressful environment for the
soldiers, very quickly. Especially
with little recreation activity and a
big workload," Kivlin said.
An ordained Presbyterian minister
for the past 20 years, Kivlin noted
that many times the military mission
takes priority over the free practice of
religion. "But, we are here to


Chaplains (Capts.) Robert Francis (left) and Keith Klvlin prepare for an
evening worship service following dedication of the camp Chapel. (Photo by
SSgt. Sandy Gregory, 102nd PAD, Mississippi Army National Guard)


encourage religious convictions in
day to day activities," Kivlin said.
Kivlin will carry out his duties as a
supervisor to the chaplains rotating
in every two weeks. With the
assistance of these chaplains, Kivlin
said he hopes to accomplish a great
deal in regard to the spiritual, moral
and psychological welfare of the
soldiers coming in and out of the
exercise area.
"One of our goals for this
exercise," Kivlin said, "is to establish
a social action center for the soldiers
who 'just want to get away from field
stress.' " A chapel for Camp Castle
was dedicated Jan. 11, and will serve
as both a chapel and camp library
where soldiers can come to relax,
read a book, worship or even come to
talk over their personal problems.
"We are not a missionary service as
some people may believe," Kivlin
remarked. "However, we have a


couple of civic action projects that we
are assisting in, whereby, soldiers can
become involved in helping some of
the local villagers. They can take the
focus off of their problems and feel
good about. helping others," he
continued.
"We work closely with the 16th
Engineer Brigade's Civil Affairs
section in humanitarian programs,"
Kivlin said. Current programs
include school supply collection and
food distribution. Many soldiers
often continue to support these
programs after they return home.
Chaplain (Capt.) Robert Francis,
a regular Army chaplain with the.
62nd Engineer Battalion at Fort
Hood, Texas, assisted Kivlin in the
first rotation of the exercise, which
began in December and continues
through June.
Francis, a Kansas City, Missouri
native, said that he felt his duties


were just as important as any other in
the exercise. "I guess one of the
biggest responsibilities we have is to
encourage these soldiers to live by the
stronger parts of their religious
beliefs while they are here," he said,
stressing the importance of worship
-even in the field.
"Even in a field setting, soldiers
need the opportunity to worship.
While here, we provide general
Protestant worship services, which
are planned around the training
schedule," Francis said. "Hopefully,
we will be able to conduct Catholic
services and Jewish services in our
theater of operations." Francis said
many times they use Jewish laymen
to conduct the Jewish services.
According to the two chaplains,
finding Catholic and other religious
clergy is difficult.
Part of a chaplain's duties while at
Camp Castle will be to visit the
Honduran communities in the rural
mountain area as liaison with local
religious leaders.
"Although the Honduran people
are predominantly Roman Catholic,
priests are scarce, so we try to go as
good-will ambassadors to let the
communities know we are here and
will help whenever possible," Kivlin
said.
Kivlin, who hails from
Portsmouth, Ohio, said the
experience in Honduras has been
interesting and unique. He
explained, "The chaplains coming to
this area of operations will indeed do
more counseling in the 17 days they
are here, than they may do on a
routine basis at their home units."
"It doesn't matter where the
soldier is, the chaplains'job is to see
that the religious and moral welfare
of that soldier is taken care of,"
Kivlin said, adding, "I am an old
infantry chaplain and used to getting
a little dirty on the job."


Play it safe: Water activities shouldn't end in disaster


by Spec. Bob Blocher

FORT CLAYTON (USARSO
PAO) -- Panama offers a large
variety of water recreation. But
unsafe boating practices can turn an
afternoon of pleasure into a
nightmare.
According to Coast Guard
officials, alcohol abuse and not
wearing a life preserver account for
more boating deaths than all other
causes combined.
"Statistics show that 75 percent of


those who lost their lives in boating
accidents did not use their Personal
Floatation Devices," said C. Peter
Marini in "Your Friend For Life".
Even strong swimmers can become
incapacitated and drown; but with a
Type II PFD, the familiar "horse
collar," an unconscious person will
float face up, with his head and
shoulders above water, said Marini.
Federal regulations require that a
Coast Guard approved PFD be
readily accessible by each person.
"Better yet, wear them!" said Marini.
Alcohol abuse, the other leading


contributor to fatal boating
accidents, is involved in over one-
half of all boating deaths, according
to Coast Guard officials.
"Stressors commonly affecting
helmsmen make drinking while
operating a boat even more
dangerous than drinking and
driving," said the Coast Guard
pamphlet "America's Cup?".
Exposure to noise, vibration, sun,
glare, wind and motion on the water
can give you "boater's hypnosis,"
which impairs you as if you were
legally drunk.


"Adding alcohol to boating stress
factors intensifies their effects--each
drink multiplies your accident risk.
"Alcohol isn't the sport. Boating is
the sport. Enjoy it safely," stated the
pamphlet "America's Cup?".
Although alcohol abuse and not
wearing a life preserver account for
most boating deaths, being a "smart
skipper" is also crucial to safe
boating.
The National Safe Boating
Council and the Coast Guard urge all
boaters to "Be Smart: Take a boating
course!"


Joy is result of sacrifice


by Spec. Bob Blocher

FORT CLAYTON (USARSO
PAO) - "Sacrifice" was the topic of
the message given by Brig. Gen.
Charles J. McDonnell, Deputy Chief
of Chaplains, at the Pacific
Community National Prayer
Breakfast held at the Fort Amador
Officer's Club.
"God is very much involved in our
lives," said McDonnell. He pointed
out that people who have money as
their god may get money, but it won't
give them joy. People who serve
pleasure will find that pleasure brings
no joy. And those who strive after
power may find power, but not joy.
"God has played a joke on us in
that He's linkedjoy to sacrifice," said
McDonnell. Fulfillment comes from


giving, he added.
As an observance of the
noncommissioned officer,this year's
Army theme, he used the example of
a dedicated NCO as someone who
gives of himself.
Musical contributions included
"Ave Maria," sung by Capt. Roberto
L. Rinaldi of the Directorate of
Security and Operations, 41st Area
Support Group, accompanied on
piano by Capt. Oscar Vasquez,
commander of HHC, 41st ASG.
"Thank You Lord"was performed
by Spec. Beatrice Sirmons,
Company A, 154th Signal Battalion,
attached to the 79th Army Band.
PFC Vincent P. Snoddy of HHC,
470th Military Intelligence
Battalion, gave the Scripture
reading.

I science watch


Fresh fruits, vegetables,


WASHINGTON (UPI)-- Echoing
the findings of scores of researchers,
a high-ranking government panel
urges Americans to eat more fruits
and vegetables and cut down on fats
to help prevent heart disease and
cancer.
In a report billed as the most
comprehensive, scientific study of
the links between diet and health, a
national research council committee
called on Americans to reduce
consumption of fat to 30 percent or
less of their daily calorie intake.
Currently, the typical U.S. diet
consist of about 37 percent fat.
The hefty, 1,300-page study
reiterates many of the recommendat-
tions made last year by the surgeon
general's report on nutrition and
health, and like that report,
advocates a moderate, balanced diet
rather than emphasizing any
particular food or nutritional
supplement.
The committee did not support the
use of most dietary supplements --
including multiple vitamins, calcium,
fish oil and fiber -- saying most "not
only have no known health benefits
for the population, but their use may
be detrimental to health."
Nor did the panel make an overall
estimate on how much chronic
disease could be prevented if
Americans would change their eating
patterns for the better.
But if everyone heeded the
recommendation onthe intake of fat,
cholesterol and saturated fatty
acids, it predicted the change could
lead to a "A 20 percent reduction in
coronary heart disease risk in the
United States beyond the 1987
levels."
The experts offered no similar
estimate for cancer, but noted


"several countries with dietary
patterns similar to those
recommended in (the) report have
about half the U.S. rates of diet-
associated cancers."
Other chronic disorders linked to
diet include high blood pressure,
liver disease, dental cavities and the
type of diabetes associated with
obesity, the 19-member panel said.
But the experts added there was not
sufficient evidence to link eating
patterns to kidney disease or
osteoporosis, commonly known as


WASHINGTON (UPI) -- The
federal government and the
American Cancer Society Monday
announced a no-smoking drive
expected to reach more than one-
fifth of the U.S. population and at
least 15 million smokers.
The National Cancer Institute
estimates it will spend $116.5 million
dollars on the project, which is being
billed as the "world's largest effort to
reduce smoking.
Scheduled to begin in 1989 and run
through 1998, the drive will be
spearheaded by 20 community-based
"tobacco control" coalitions in major
metropolitan areas or throughout
the entire states.
Government funding for the
program, called the American Stop-
Smoking Intervention Study, will be
competitively awarded to city or
state health departments, which will


allocate the money to grassroots
coalitions.
As for its role, the Cancer Society
will kick in several million dollars for
program costs, provide large
quantities of educational material
and offer its network of thousands of
local volunteers.
The project will include training
health professionals on how to
counsel smokers trying to stop,
starting special stop-smoking
programs in the workplace and
beginning smoking prevention
classes in schools. Special emphasis
will be placed on efforts directed at
minorities, women, heavy smokers,
low-income smokers and youth, NCI
said.
To evaluate the program's success
in getting people to kick the habit,
NCI will conduct periodic national
surveys.

AGING IN FOCUS


"Hot" Tips To
Keep You Cool
by Curt Clinkscales

Long before you thought for the
first time that you were "getting
along in years," you probably gave
little thought to the weather, just
that it was hot, cold or just right.
Except in unusual circumstances,
such as long periods of extreme
weather, the young person has little
concern with the atmospheric con-
ditions. If he or she gets overheated,
it is a natural thing to sit down, take
it. easy and quickly recover.
Not so with the aging, according
to Dr. T. Franklin Williams, director
of the National Institute on Aging.
Dr. Williams warns that certain
factors can make a person prone to
heat stress, including heart, lung and
kidney diseases, as well as any
condition which causes weakness or
fever.
In spite of such warnings, the
normal person who is over 50 can
enjoy hot weather by using ordinary
common sense.
Therefore, if you except high
temperatures and humidity to con-
tinue for a while in your locale,
consider doing this:
Drink plenty of water and juices.
Bathe or shower frequently -
using cool water.


Wear lightweight, light-colored.
loose-fitting clothing. Natural, rather
than man-made, fibers are recom-
mended.
Avoid vigorous activity between
noon and 4:00 p.m., the hottest part
of the day.
Avoid heavy meals.
If you take medication regularly,
discuss potential problems related
to heat with your doctor.
Relax. Keep cool as practical.
The majority of persons who die
each year of heat stroke, according
to Dr. Williams, are over 50.
We can experience heat stress in
different stages. Heat fatigue will
generally make you feel weak. It is
more serious when we detect
extreme thirst, giddiness, nausea,
loss of appetite, lightheadedness and
an elevated temperature.
If you witness these symptoms,
Dr. Williams warns, drink water or
fruit - or vegetable -juices. Avoid
anything containing alcohol.
Whatever you do, take the heat
seriously. Keep the danger signs,
listed above, handy. Sometimes the
temperature doesn't show any sig-
nificant drop until late October. So,
as long as the temperature remains
hot, do your best to remain a.
comfortably cool and relaxed as yot
can.

o A list of groceries cost more than $65 in Tokyo, compared
by Philena Corradeno to just over $15 in Mexico City, according to a survey by the


The risotto rage is gradually taking hold on American appetites. While it
may not suppress the pizza or pasta passion, rice, an American staple,
cooked in this special Italian way, is appearing on many restaurant menus.
This classic dish of Northern Italy has in the last several decades filtered
down into the rest of that country. The Italian for rice is "riso." Risotto is a
way of preparing rice so that it cooks to a creamy consistency yet remains
firm. Rice is sauteed briefly and liquid is added in small amounts. As each
addition is almost fully absorbed, more is added until the rice is tender. Each
grain drinks in flavor.
Risotto may be as simple as using only broth and saffron, or elegant with
champagne, wild mushrooms, truffles, shellfish or any exquisite extra.
Because Americans like speed, I give you first an Americanized version: all
ingredients are added at one time. Then the classic Risotto alla Milanese.
And I urge you to try the Milanese for a taste experience you will repeat
often. It's well worth the few extra minutes.


1 cup chopped onions
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 cup uncooked rice
2 medium tomatoes, cut in eighths
1 4-oz. can sliced mushrooms, drained
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon EACH ground black pepper and rosemary leaves
1Va cups chicken broth
1 pound peeled deveined raw shrimp
Cook onion in butter in a large skillet over medium heat until tender but
not brown. Add rice and cook two minutes more. Add tomatoes, mushrooms,
salt, pepper, rosemary and chicken broth. Heat to boiling; stir, cover, reduce
heat and simmer 20 minutes. Add shrimp; cover and cook two minutes. If
rice is too moist, cover and let stand 10 minutes. Makes six servings.
RISOTTO ALLA MILANESE
5 to 6 cups chicken broth
/a cup finely diced onion ( 1 small onion)
1 tablespoon Italian olive oil
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
1V2 cups uncooked rice
/z cup dry white wine, optional
1/ teaspoon powdered saffron
1/s cup freshly grated Italian Parmesan cheese
Bring broth to a simmer and keep it simmering over low heat.
In a heavy saucepan over low heat, saute onion in olive oil and two
tablespoons butter until softened but not brown. Add rice. Stirring with a
wooden spoon, cook one to two minutes; add broth and cook, stirring often
until liquid is nearly all absorbed. Continue adding 1/ cup broth at a time,
cooking until each addition is almost absorbed. When rice is almost tender,
dissolve saffron in '/2 cup broth. Stir into rice and cook until absorbed.
Remove from heat. Stir in remaining tablespoon butter and Parmesan
cheese. Serve immediately. Makes four servings.


Mini-Reviews
COUSINS - The plot of this
movie is borrowed from the 1975
French comedy, "Cousin, Cousine,"
but it is still delightful in its retelling.
This movie could have had a lot of
problems bridging the span of over a
decade. After all, in the '70s, free
love was still very much in vogue. In
the righteous, health-conscious late
'80s, morality and sexual discretion
are once again ruling the day. Yet
this film manages to make the
transition marvelously.
It is a madcap, adulterous romp
centered around three weddings and
the loud, boisterous family that
attends them. During the first wed-
ding, two distant relatives sneak off
for some l'amour, leaving their
spouses behind to fend for them-
selves. The spouses (Ted Danson
and Isabella Rossellini), of course,
find that they, too, can make beauti-
ful music together. In their case,
though, their affair leads to "true
love" (whatever that is!). Truly,
Rossellini's performance brings this
whole film to life. Rated: PG-13.
Star Rating: ***.

TAP - Sadly, we've all come to
accept the fact that the age of the
great movie musical, a la the glori-
ous MGM (Astaire, Kelly, Garland,
Rooney, Rogers, et al) days, is dead


and gone. Even more sadly, this
particular film does nothing to
resurrect it.
Gregory Hines plays Max
Washington, son of a late, great tap
dancer. He has just gotten out of
prison and will probably go right
back there if he decides to go
through with a planned jewel heist.
Pulling him back from his life of
crime are his father's old cronies
(Harold Nicholas, Jimmy Slyde,
Sandman Sims, Sammy Davis, Jr.)
who try to convince Junior that his
talent for tap is all he needs to
succeed. And, poor thing, he does
try, only to be shot down by audition
after audition.
The story is tedious, but there is
some saving grace. The love story
between Hines and newcomer Suz-
zanne Douglas, who portrays a tap
teacher, is marvelous. While they
indulge in the inevitable dance duet,
movie musical fans will find them-
selves reminiscing about the old
Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers days.
Personally, I think the tap scenes
are astounding. What's missing is
that sense of tongue-in-cheek that
has to be applied to movie musicals.
When they take themselves too
seriously, they get lost in the shuffle
(no pun intended!). Rated: PG-13.
Star Rating: **'/2.

Book analyzes 50 years of change

in style and course of America


THE RESHAPING OF EVERYDAY
LIFE 1790-1840, by Jack Larkin
(Harper & Row: $19.95).
If one views the history of a
civilization or a nation as a parallel
to human development, then the
peroid in American history from the
inception of the Republic to the
discovery of gold in California were
the teen years of the States. The
"birth" of the nation from the
settlement to the Revolution saw
little change from "parental" Old
World influences. The following
decades were by contrast a time of
exploration, exuberance and exhibi-
tionism not unlike the pre-adult
years of a person.
This is the second volume in "The
Everyday Life in America Series"
and Mr. Larkin, chief historian at Old
Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts,
has resurrected the feel of the early
days of the nation with as much
authenticity as has the restoration at
Sturbridge. That was a time of


change - a fiove from an agrarian
to an urban lifestyle; an emphasis on
invention and manufacturing rather
than a home farmstead economy; a
population push beyond the restric-
tive mountains that freed the for-
merly coastbound colonists. It was a
time when personal cleanliness
made a small if not universal impact
on individual habits (amusing in an
era when personal hygiene items
make up a large portion of the
weekly shopping list). Some things,
such as premarital sex and pre-
gnancy, were much as we know
them today, if not more so.
The point is that those 50 years
saw a drastic change in the style and
course of a Republic rambunctiously
launched on a new form of govern-
ment and a citizenry brimming with
confidence and joie de vivre. If any
reader likes to reminisce about the
"good old days," historically this
would have been them.

CSU place kicker drops dead during workout


FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) --
An autopsy has been scheduled to
determine the cause of death of
Colorado State University's second-
string place-kicker.
Mark Andrew Tyler, 20, a
sophomore from Woodburn, Ore.,
collapsed during a workout Tuesday
afternoon and died shortly afterward
at Poudre Valley Hospital.
Officials said the cause of death
apparently was cardiac arrest, but an
autopsy was to be performed today
to confirm that.
Tyler was participating in an
indoor agility drill when he collapsed
at 2:50 p.m., officials said.
Trainers and staff members tried
to resuscitate him, and paramedics
were called and used "aggressive
procedures to try to start his heart
and breathing again," hospital
spokesman Mike Vogl said.


Holyfield
LAS VEGAS, Nev. (UPI) -
Evander Holyfield said Wednesday
he is ready to fight Mike Tyson now,
but hell wait as long as necessary to
get a date with the heavyweight
champion.
"Each and every fight will prove
my point - I'm the guy for Tyson,"
Holyfield said at a news conference
for Saturday's scheduled 12-round
bout against Michael Dokes. "I'd
fight him March 11 if I could, but I'm
a patient person.
"I don't think Mike Tyson will
duck me. I think hell fight any man
who will get into the ring with him.
But the people handling him are
protecting their fighter. Why put him
in all these wars when they can make
money the other way?"
In many quarters, Holyfield, 20-0
with 16 knockouts, is considered the
only boxer with a decent chance to
beat Tyson.
"His people have to feel I could
possibly take him out," said
Holyfield, who has stopped both
James Tillis and Pinklon Thomas
since moving up from the
cruiserweight division. "Tyson will
fight anyone. I really believe that."
Holyfield's handlers are expected


He was pronounced dead at the
hospital at 3:38 p.m.
Assistant coach Tom Richardson
said Tyler had normal blood pressure
and a low body-fat percentage and
had been physically cleared to
participate in athletic training.
This was the fourth week of intense
physical training for the Ram
Football team in its spring
conditioning, and the coach said
Tyler had experienced no problem
with any of the previous workouts.
Tyler was running backward
during a drill called "The County
Fair" when he collapsed.
CSU head coach Earle Bruce has
used the intense training program
since the early 1970s. "It's not
something new," Bruce said. "It's a
way to condition the legs and the
body. I can't explain what
happened."

champion's advisers soon after
Saturday night's bout for Dokes
Continental Americas heavyweight
crown.
"People think Evander is crazy for
taking this fight, but he took it
because he wants to prove he's the
best challenger for Mike Tyson," said
Dan Duva, Holyfield's promoter.
"That's the way it should be. I'm
disgusted that Mike Tyson wants to
fight Jose Ribalta next. Jose Ribalta
is a bum."
Dokes, out of the ring for nearly
three years because of cocaine
addiction, has won eight consecutive
times since launching a comeback 15
months ago.
"I know, I feel, I believe I'll be the
victor," said Dokes, 37-1-2 with 23
KOs. "I feel what can happen in the
ring March 11 could be no worse
than what it's been like in 10 weeks of
training. The fight is a minor step."
Marty Cohen, back as Dokes'
trainer after a lengthy dispute
between the two, said the fighter is a
winner regardless of the outcome.
Michael Dokes is a story in itself,"
said Cohen, who claims to be 91
years old and in the sport for seven


Bruce said he never saw a sign of
trouble with Tyler keeping up with
the rest of the team.
The death "marks a tragic day in
Colorado State football history,"
said Bruce. "CSU has lost a fine
student-athlete and an outstanding
person who anyone would be proud
to call their son."
"We are greatly saddened by the
loss of Mark Tyler," CSU athletic
director Oval Jaynes said. "Words
will never be able to convey our
sympathy and concern for Mark and
his family. His warm and
enthusiastic presence in our program
can never by replaced."
Tyler was the second-leading
scorer on the team in 1987. He had
51 points on 10-of-19 field goals and
21-of-28 extra points. His longest
field goal that season was a 51-yarder
against Air Force.

proved that you could come up from
the depths of hell, from as low and as
down as anyone could be, this is what
it is all about.
"Win, lose or draw, he's going to
be a champion. You're going to see
one of the greatest things well ever
see - courage."
Holyfield, a 6-1 favorite, said he
will weigh 207 or 208 pounds. Dokes,
who was at 245 for his first fight
back, weighed 223 Wednesday.

He lost his startingjob to freshman
Mike Brown last season.
Bruce said Tyler was working hard
to win back his startingjob. "When I
had my meeting with him when I first
came here," Bruce said, "Mark said
he was looking forward to the
opportunity to compete for that
position again."
Tyler was a resident of Corbett
Hall and majored in mathematics.
He was named to the all-academic
Western Athletic Conference
football team last season. A
graduate of Woodburn High School
in 1986, he redshirted his first season

Tyson's managers fighting

over anti-trust violations


NEW YORK (UPI) - Bill
Cayton, World Heavyweight
Champion Mike Tyson's estranged
manager, has sued boxing promoter
Don King in Federal Court, alleging
anti-trust violations, racketeering
and fraud.
"We are asking the court for
damages and to enjoin King from
unlawfully interfering any more with
Tyson," said Thomas Puccio,
Cayton's lawyer. "We are also
seeking a declaratory judgment of
our rights."
The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in U.S.
District Court in Manhattan, seeks
to prohibit King from performing a
variety of managerial duties for
Tyson, including entering into
contracts with the heavyweight
champion.
If successful, Cayton's suit could
cost the flamboyant promoter
millions of dollars.
Tyson has sued to break his boxer-
manager contract with Cayton,
which runs through 1992, saying he
wishes to be represented by King.


Cayton responded on Feb. 27, asking
the New York State Athletic
Commission to order King to stop
tampering with Tyson.
Cayton's suit alleges that King
engaged in a pattern of racketeering
that permitted him to gain a
monopoly over all heavyweight
championship bouts. It also alleges
that King's desire to gain control
over heavyweight fights led him to
pursue Tyson and convince the
young fighter to fire Cayton.
"King maintains this monopoly
by, among other things, signing
champions to long-term exclusive
promotional contracts," Cayton's
legal papers said. "Potential
contenders are in turn told that to
fight King fighters in championship
fights, they must sign with King
themselves."
Cayton's. lawsuit also contends
that King engaged in "repeated acts
of mail and wire fraud" to control the
heavyweight division as well as
signing fighters in other weight
classes.

Cox blows steam by shoving video cameraman


ST. LOUIS (AP) - Cardinals
pitcher Danny Cox apparently
vented frustration overan injury that
may jeopardize his career by
grabbing a television cameraman by
the throat and shoving him
backward over a chair in one of two
incidents at Lambert Airport.
KSDK-TV cameraman Frank
Scalise said Cox called to apologize
hours after the incident Wednesday
morning. But on Cox's return flight
to the team's spring training site in
St. Petersburt, Fla., about 10 hours
later he brushed off an interview
request from another television
reporter.
"He turned me down because he
said 'I'm more important than you,'"
said Greg Gizinski of KTVI-TV. "He
was being a total jerk."
The right-hander was in St. Louis
to have his injured elbow examined


by team physician Dr. Stan London,
who disclosed that Cox possibly has
damage to the medial collateral
ligament. Cox, who had surgery to
remove bone chips last May and was
limited to 13 starts and a 3-8 record
last season, is to meet Saturday with
Dr. Frank Jobe, the Los Angeles
Dodgers' team physician.
Cardinals general manager Dal
Mexvill sided with Cox in the
incident with Scalise.
"They should have had the
courtesy to know that he didn't want
to say anything," Maxvill said. "But
they continued, in no uncertain
terms, and that's a sure way to
provoke a guy a little bit."
Scalise said he admired Cox as a
ballplayer and would not press
charges, but added that the pitcher
was "way out of line."
Scalise said that Cox had told him


during their telephone conversation
that he was extremely frustrated, not
knowing what his future holds."
Scalise, 42, an 18-year veteran as a
news cameraman, was assigned to
meet Cox at the airport about 8:30
a.m. Wednesday to tape an interview
that was to have been conducted by
a KSDK sports reporter.
Videotape taken by a television
cameraman from KMOV shows Cox
walked up the airport concourse,
suddenly veered to his left and
assaulted Scalise.
Cox is 6-foot-4 and weights 220
pounds. Scalise is 6-1 and also weighs
about 220 pounds.
"I'm not a small guy," Scalise said.
"I didn't feel threatened by him. It
happened too quick."
Scalise said he had a sore shoulder
from trying to keep his camera from
hitting the floor when he fell over the


chair and scratches on his throat
where Cox grabbed him.
Team spokesman Kip Ingle also
said Cox was sorry for the incident
and wants Scalise and his family to
be his guest at a Cardinals game.
"Danny is deeply sorry that the
incident occurred," Ingle said. "He
called (Scalise) this afternoon, and
Danny had a chance to express his
regrets over the situation. He has
been under extreme distress over his
injury, and apologizes."


Measles outbreak causes first unattended tournament


HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -
Organizers of the ECAC North
Atlantic Conference tournament
juggled schedules and canceled
events to cut costs after a measles
outbreak led to a ban on spectators,
but the event still could lose as much
as $50,000.
"If I was to put ink to paper right
now, I'd estimate those losses are
going to be $30,000 to $50,000,"
University of Hartford Athletic
Director Don Cook said Wednesday.
"A lot of that depends on the
degree of activity we have," including
the number of fans who donate the
cost of their unused tournament
tickets, he said.
A Hartford basketball player's
case of measles and an outbreak of
the highly contagious disease on the


campus of Siena College, another
NAC member, prompted the
spectator ban.
The tournament was condensed,
too, from five days to three days,
Thursday through Saturday.
University of Hartford officials
believe Nate Gainey, a sophomore
guard, contracted measles on Feb. 4,
whenHartford played Sienawhere 36
cases of the disease have been
reported.
The measles outbreak has also
meant that several.other NAC games
had to be closed to spectators and
some were canceled, resulting in a
substantial loss of revenue for the
schools, NAC Commissioner Stu
Haskell said Wednesday.
"There've been quite a number of
games played already where fans


were prohibited from attending," he
said. "I know of five or six contests
that would have probably had three
to four thousand tickets sold.... The
losses would be fairly substantial."
Despite the loss of revenue,
Haskell said the league wanted to
keep the tournament in Hartford.
"People at the University of
Hartford and the Civic Center, the
two staffs, have really worked very
hard on the tournament," Haskell
said Wednesday. 'We felt it wouldn't
be right to tell them their work went
for naught."
Hartford, as host, is fronting the
money for the tournament. Any
losses incurred will be reimbursed
from proceeds the winning team
receives from the NCAA. The winner
receives an automatic bid to the
NCAA tournament worth just more


than $250,000 this year, Cook said.
The first priority in distributing
the $250,000 is administrative,
including a stipend to the ECAC,
league office expenses and
tournament expenses. The winning
team gets 50 percent of the balance,
and the remaining 50 percent is
shared by the other nine member
schools.
Cook said organizers would have a
more firm estimate on losses once
they know how many of Hartford's
2,000 season ticket-holders ask for
refunds on their $18 tournament
tickets.
"We've had people who have
donated their tickets or their
money," he said. "We've had others
that ask for refunds."
Saturday's championship game is
to be carried by ESPN.


Oklahoma starter suspended for drunken arrest


NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -
Mookie Blaylock, an All-Big Eight
guard who started every game for
Oklahoma this year, has been
suspended from the Sooners'
conference tournament opener
Friday for his weekend arrest.
Blaylock pleaded no contest
Wednesday to an amended charge of
disturbing the peace. He was arrested
Sunday on a complaint of public
intoxication after Norman police
answered a call from a convenience
store clerk about an argument.
"This type of conduct will not be
condoned," interim president David
Swank and Athletic Director Donnie
Duncan said in a joint statement.
The second-ranked Sooners, 26-4,
play Colorado on Friday in Kansas
City, Mo. in the opening round of the
Big Eight Conference tournament.
"Mookie Blaylock is a good
person and I am proud that he has
been at the University of Oklahoma,"
Coach Billy Tubbs said in a
statement released by the sports
information department. "He is still
a member of our basketball family
and, even though everyone
concerned has learned a valuable
lesson, we support him fully."
The Sooners, who won the Big
Eight regular-season title, defeated
Colorado this year 122-86 and
106-88.
"We're going to be ready to play,
but this is gonna make our task
tougher," Tubbs said. "Our players
will try to take up the slack. I thought
it was gonna be a tough game,
anyway."
Norman police has said Blaylock


could have avoided the arrest had the
argument between Blaylock and a
female companion not rekindled
outside the store.
"You shouldn't have put yourself
in this position," Municipal Judge
Ted Roberts told Blaylock. "I don't
know what happened out there but
right or wrong you should comply
with the officers. They've got the
hammer."
Roberts imposed a six-month
deferred sentence for Blaylock and
ordered him to pay a $50
administrative fee and $19 in court
costs, which he paid inmediately
after the court appearance.
Attorney J.W. Coyle, who
represented Blaylock, said the
deferred sentence "in essence, means
that in six months the charge against
him will be dismissed."
Under a deferred sentence, the
charge can be wiped off Blaylock's
record if he is not convicted of any
other violations within the next six
months.
"Normally, the court does defer on
a first offense," Roberts said. "But I
will warn you, if you don't take
advantage of this opportunity I won't
hesitate to accelerate sentencing and
you'll do some jail time. I give you
one shot. I hope you take the
opportunity to clear your record."
The maximum penalty for
disturbing the peace is a $200 fine
and 30 days in jail.
Coyle said Blaylock decided to
enter the no contest plea to avoid the
spectacle of a trial and to allow him
to concentrate on the post-season
tournaments.

Cerezo: Well ask Noriega to respect vote


WASHINGTON (USA) -
Vinicio Cerezo of Guatemala says he
and the other Central American
presidents plan to ask Gen. Manuel
Antonio Noriega and the
Panamanian armed forces to abide
by the results of the May 7 elections
in Panama.
Cerezo told a news conference at
the Carnegie Endowment for
International Peace here that the five
signers of the August, 1987, Central
American Peace Accord were
"preparing an initiative ... to ask
Noriega to respect the will of the
people of Panama."
Cerezo who wrapped up an
unofficial visit to the United States
that included meetings with
President Bush, Vice President Dan
Quayle, congressional leaders and
others, said Nicaragua's Daniel
Ortega would join the Central
American presidents' initiative.
Ortega has sided with Noriega,
who engineered the ouster and
replacement of Panamanian
President Eric Arturo Delvalle when
Delvalle fired him as head of the
armed forces. Delvalle acted after
two U.S. grand juries indicted
Noriega on charges of narcotics
trafficking and racketeering.
"We are going to tell Noriega that,
please, (for the good of) peace in
Central America, you have to accept
the will of the people.
"We are going to send a message
also to the army in Panama, telling


them that we don't have anything
against them and that they should
follow the examples (of the military)
in Guatemala, El Salvador and other
countries and accept the will of the
people is they want to avoid a
confrontation with them."
Cerezo said he hoped Noriega and


the Panamanian military would
respond positively to the initiative.
Otherwise, he added, "we will have
problems - polarization and
confrontation in Panama and
problems for all the region."
Panama's political opposition, he
added, intended to enlist the help of


Maj. Gen. Bernard Loeffke


Continued from Page 1

initiating several events, such as the
CG's fun runs to target family
participation, STRAC, Super
STRAC and Team STRAC
competition.
Loeffke also made Survival
Spanish a requisite for USARSO
soldiers, incorporating it into the
Army's Common Task Test to
increase soldiers' efficiency in the
theater.
He also capitalized on the STRAC
soldier mystique, honing the
acronym "Skilled, tough, ready
around the clock" into a USARSO
mission clarification: Support
SOUTHCOM. Train in the region.
Reinforce freedom. Assist friends.
Canal defense.
His nearly 32 years of military
service have been remarkable in the
variety of positions he has held. After
graduating from the U.S. Military


Academy in 1957, he was assigned as
a platoon leader in the 82nd
Airborne Division, Fort Bragg, N.C.
He has served three tours in
Southeast Asia, including one as a
battalion commander.
He has been an Assistant
Professor of Russian at West Point.
Loeffke was selected as a White
House Fellow and served as a staff
assistant in the National Security
Council in the White House. He has
served two tours in the Pentagon:
one as Chief of Strategy and War
Plans and the other as an Army
planner.
He commanded an infantry
brigade at Fort Lewis, Wash. He
served as the Army Attache to the
U.S. Embassy in Moscow for two
years, then as the Army Fellow on
the Council of Foreign Relations.
Loeffke spent two and one-half
years as the U.S. Defense Attache in


Brig. Gen. Marc C. Cisner


Continuedfrom Page I
Additionally, he has played a crucial
role in the planning and operation of
major exercises throughout the
theater to include Fuertes Caminos,
Abriendo Rutas and Fuerzas
Unidas.
In response to the need for a crisis
management plan, a deployablejoint
task force, capable of a self-sustained
emergency deployment throughout
Latin America, was implemented
during his tenure.
During his career, he has held a
wide variety of command and staff
positions. Prior to receiving his
commission he was an enlisted
member of the 16th Reconnaissance
Battalion, United States Marine
Corps Ready Reserve, in San
Antonio Texas. He received his
commission as a Second Lieutenant


the People's Republic of China,
where he became the first foreign
paratrooper to jump with a Chinese
Communist airborne unit.
He then served as Chief of Staff,
XVIII Airborne Corps, Fort Bragg,
for two years. Prior to assuming
command of USARSO, he served as
Special Assistant to the Commander
in Chief, U.S. Southern Command.
He speaks Spanish, Portuguese,
French, Russian and Chinese. He is a
Ranger, Master Parachutist,
Pathfinder, skydiver and commercial
pilot. His civilian education includes
a Master's Degree in Russian and
Soviet Area Studies and a doctorate
in Political Science.
Loeffke is married to the former
Francesca Adler from North
Carolina, and they are expecting
their first child.
His next assignment is Chairman,
Inter-American Defense Board in
Washington, D.C.


v,,


after completing the Reserve
Officer's Training Course curriculum
at Saint Mary's University, where he
was the Cadet Corps Commander.
After airborne training Brig. Gen.
Cisneros was assigned to United
States Army Europe where he served
in company-level command
assignments. He then returned to
Saint Mary's as Assistant professor
of Military Science.
He served two tours in Vietnam,
first as Assistant G-3 Advisor in the
Capital Military District during TET
1968 and then as District Advisor in
Quang NGAI Province.
Cisneros served as Battalion S-3
and Executive Officer at Fort Hood,
Texas, where he later commanded
the 1st Battalion, 3rd Field Artillery.
After attending the United States
Army War College he filled a joint
assignment as Chief, Operations and


Training, Operations Directorate (J-
3), United States Southern
Command, Panama.
Other key assignments held
recently include Deputy Commanding-
General, U.S. -Army South,
Panama; Deputy G-3 (Operations)
Director, Plans and Training, III
Corps, Fort Hood, Texas; and
Commander, Division Artillery, 2nd
Armored Division, Fort Hood,
Texas.
Cisneros holds a Master of Science
degree in Public Administration
from Shippensburg State College.
He was recently cited by "Hispanic
Business Magazine; as one of the 100
most influential Hispanics in the
United States.
He is married to the former Eddy
Virginia Durham from Norias King
Ranch, Texas. They have three
children: Marc Jr., Kara, and Kenric.

other Latin American presidents in
an effort to have the May 7 elections
opened to observers and other
international scrutiny.
Cerezo said that while he was
under no illusions about the true
character of Nicaragua's Sandinista
government, he believed Ortega
would comply with the terms of the
new agreement reached by the
presidents in El Salvador last month
because "reality is pushing him."
