Page 16 Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Thursday, March 24, 1988 World/National Report 60-Day Cease-Fire Signed SAPOA, Nicaragua (AP) — The government and Contra rebels agreed to a 60-day cease-fire to negotiate an end to their six year war, signing a broad accord that promises the rebels a role in Nicaragua's political process. The agreement signed iate Wednesday was the first concrete step toward ending the conflict that has killed more than 40,000 people. The cease-fire is to begin April 1, with negotiators meeting again April 6 in Managua to work out a permanent truce. In the interim, a truce that took effect Monday is to remain in force. Military Assistance Sought PANAMA CITY, Panama (AP) — Although U.S. sanctions and a general strike have devastated Panama's economy, opposition leaders said it may take another mutiny in the military to drive Gen. Manuel Antonio Noriega from power. As the strike entered its fourth day today, a prominent opposition leader was expected to return to join in the fight to oust Noriega, the country's de facto leader and head of its 15,000-strong Defense Forces. Almost all businesses were shut down across the country again Wednesday. Lacking food and money, thousands of people lined up at soup kitchens set up by churches throughout the country. North Will Get Full Pension WASHINGTON (AP) - Lt. Col. Oliver North is beginning his retirement with more notoriety than most officers, but he is still entitled to the same benefits as any of the other more than 1.5 million men and women drawing military pensions. North, the former national security aide who was indicted last week in the Iran-Contra affair, announced two days later he had decided to retire on May 1 from the Marine Corps. North said he was taking the step because he would probably have to subpoena high-ranking government officials to mount his legal defense and didn't want to do so as a military officer. New Inmates Have AIDS ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — More than 15 percent of inmates entering state prison from New York City have tested positive for the AIDS virus, officials say. The finding, from anonymous blood tests of 500 inmates over two weeks early this year or late last year, will prompt further anonymous tests, said Peter Slocum, a spokesman for state Health Commissioner Dr. David Axelrod. House Sends Senate Budget WASHINGTON (AP) Lawmakers are crediting the budget summit accord between congressional leaders and the White House for the bipartisan ease with which the House sent a $1.1 trillion budget for fiscal 1989 to the Senate. The spending plan, which alters some of the domestic priorities President Reagan had included in his own proposed package last month, was approved 319-102 on Wednesday by the Democratic-controlled House. In contrast to last year, when budget writers toiled several weeks longer amid staunch opposition by Republicans, GOP lawmakers this time voted 92-78 for the resolution. Barriers Pass Arts Test WASHINGTON (AP) - The post-and-chain barrier being erected outside the White House fence has yet to be tested by a terrorist attack, but it already has passed one test: it won grudging approval from the Commission of Fine Arts. And, if you wonder what fine arts have to do with protecting the president and the White House from a truckload of high explosives, well, as Secret Service spokeswoman Jane Vezeris puts it, "Washington is a strange place, isn't it?" Neither the arts commission nor the Secret Service actually is in charge of building the protective devices. That's the domain of the Park Service, which has been responsible for the White House grounds since the place was declared a national monument by Congress in 1961. Israeli Warplanes Kill Nine SIDON, Lebanon (AP) — Israeli warplanes divebombed Palestinian guerrilla bases on the outskirts of this southern port city today for the second day, killing nine people and wounding five, police said. A police spokesman said six Israeli fighter-bombers hit the bases six times in 55 minutes with 30 rockets and bombs, starting at 1 p.m. The bases were manned by Abu Nidal's Fatah-Revolutionary Council and the Moscow-oriented Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, police said. •OOOOOQOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOiX Dolly 8-5 CLASSIFIED 722-5000 7.
