"We're very, very hopeful," said Gosch, mother of Johnny Gosch. "Now we can prove there is a pattern, a trail of cases. ... We have some tangible material that can be traced," she said Sunday. The television program "America's Most Wanted" recently aired a composite sketch that a private investigator claims is that of Gosch's abductor. The San Francisco Chronicle reported Wednesday that the sketch matched another sketch of a child's abductor in the San Francisco area. Bay-area investigators, the paper reported, are looking into whether the two kidnappings are connected. Des Moines FBI agents are aware of the possible connection, and the lines of communication are open between agents in San Francisco and Des Moines, said agent David Oxley. Johnny Gosch was 12 when he was kidnapped from his paper route in West Des Moines in 1982 while delivering the Des Moines Sunday Register. Woman reports rape at gunpoint by 3 men A Des Moines woman was found early Sunday morning lying in the snow on Des Moines' east side with her arms, feet and mouth bound with duct tape. The woman told police that three men had repeatedly raped her at gunpoint over the course of several hours, beginning Saturday evening. She said she was walking near the 4800 block of Southwest Ninth Street about 6 p.m. Saturday when the men offered her a ride. She said she accepted the offer.

Thev then took her to Sixth and University avenues, where they assaulted her again, she told police. At that point she saw police officers, but she said she was unable to call for help because she feared for her life. She said her assailants threatened to kill her. She was left at East 19th and Des Moines streets and found about 2:20 a.m. Sunday. She was taken to Des Moines General Hospital by ambulance. She described her assailants as white males and their car as a dark four-door. Sgt. Jerry Wells of the police's sexual-violence section said he did not have further information because the woman had not been interviewed by police yet.

Dodge Division of McGraw-Hill Inc. Plans to streamline USDA to be passed on to Clinton Reuter Washington, D.C. As the Agriculture Department nears the end of a sweeping review of its operations, it will be up to the Clinton administration to decide the fate of the agency's 8,000 local offices. By closing or merging unneeded offices the department could save tens of millions of dollars and provide better, more modern service, critics of the agency say. Agriculture is the fourth-largest federal department, with duties ranging from food stamps to farm subsidies and national forests. It has more than 1 10,000 employees, i The reorganization effort reaches a milestone today, when state directors of fanner service agencies meet to begin scrutiny of local offices for possible closings. Each office has been assessed under a six-part formula and given a score. Agriculture Secretary Edward Ma-digan plans to produce a set of recommendations by mid-January.

"We were hoping for four more years," Madigan spokesman Roger Runningcn said. "As to Clinton and his agi iculture secretary, we are going to leave behind a well-thought-out plan they can choose to accept, reject or modify." Although attention has focused on local offices serving farmers, 22 of the nearly four dozen agriculture agencies are being examined, including the Forest Service, Runningen said. "I won't rule out the notion he (Madigan) could have something to say" in his report about consolidating farm-service agencies or revamping the management structure, Runningen said. That sort of action would require approval by Congress, while merging or closing offices could be accomplished independently. 1
