Africa Raid In Botswana GABORONE, Botswana (AP) — The South African army today raided a house on the outskirts of the capital, engaging in an hourlong gunbatlle that left four people dead and the house destroyed. The South African Defense Force claimed responsibility for the early morning attack 10 hours after it ended, leaving four bodies burned beyond recognition inside the house, which was gutted by a fire. The Botswana government has blamed similar attacks in the past on the South African military, which says it stages raids across its border to attack hideouts and bases of the African National Congress guerrilla organization fighting to end white domination in South Africa. The South African government has issued several threats to Botswana in the past few months, accusing it of harboring guerrillas. The Botswana government supports the ANC's goals and allows its representatives in the country, but denies that they carry out attacks in South Africa from Botswana territory. The residents of Tsholofelo, about two miles from the center of Gaborone said they heard automatic gunfire, and possibly grenades, during the sporadic Shootout. The neighbors reported seeing people fleeing in a vehicle and running into the bush and two neighbors reported the attackers left in a helicopter. There was no official statement on Radio Botswana, and no information about whether the police or military took part in the battle. Deputy Police Commissioner ANGOLA --• rr ZIMBABWE BOTSWANA , i Gaborone-. ^ K T SOUTH ' \ f~^~-.^' AFRICA I ,•' •* i l-~< Chicago Tribune Map 200 Mltos Norman Moleboge was quoted by the Botswana Press Association as saying four people were shot, then set afire by the attackers who abandoned a vehicle with a South African registration. But a reporter on the scene said the blue Volkswagen van, standing in the bush 220 yards from the burned-out one-story house, had no registration plates. Neighbors told police the occupants of the house were all Batswana, said the press association. Foreign Minister Gaositwe Chiepe and her foreign secretary, Sam Mpuchane, were at the scene as policemen checked the van for fingerprints. One man said a woman from the attacked house, wearing only underpants, had arrived at his home seeking shelter. Gephardt Candidacy Likely To Fold Today WASHINGTON (AP) - Richard Gephardt decided the fate of his sputtering presidential campaign after failing to gain the "Michigan miracle" he so desperately needed and with time running out to file for re-election to his House seat. Gephardt, who faced a Tuesday deadline to file as a candidate for re-election to Congress from his Missouri district, scheduled a Capitol Hill news conference today to announce his decision. For several days, however, signs had pointed to a planned exit. He spent Sunday at home in seclusion at his suburban Virginia with family and advisers. Aides were mum about what went on, but as early as last week they had said privately that he would drop out if he didn't make a strong showing in Michigan's Democratic caucuses. He finished a distant third in Saturday's contest. A Missouri Democratic leader, state Rep. Anthony D. Ribaudo, said he had spoken with Gephardt Saturday night, and that Gephardt indicated he would run for his House seat from St. Louis. "Dick Gephardt has informed me he'd like to proceed with his career in Congress," Ribaudo said.

Report Northwest Jet Evacuated For Fire DKTKOIT i A: — A Northwest Airlines jet was evacuated when fuel vapo briefly ignited, sparking what passengers th'nu'hl \vas a fire and closing the airport for 20 minutes, & <:hor;ties said. Four people were slightly injured. Flight 288. originating in San Diego v. ith 144 passengers and seven crow members aboard, landed safely at 8:20 p.m. Sunday at Metropolitan Airport in Romulus, about 20 miles west of Detroit. As the Boeing 727 waited for clearance to taxi to its gate, residual fuel in the exhaust system of the auxiliary power unit sparked a "flash" on the plane's right wing, Northwest spokesman William Wren said. It was immediately extinguished without damage to the plane, Wren said. Spring Break More Controlled At Pal Springs PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) —Police riding herd on tens of thousands of youths who jammed this desert resort for spring break have made 140 arrests and issued 545 citations, but report the students are behaving fairly well. Authorities say there have been no repeats of the rioting that occurred in 1986. when youths went on a downtown rampage, throwing beer bottles and tearing the clothes off young women. "About 99 percent of those arrested were for public drunkenness," said police Lt. Lee Weigel on Sunday. "But all in all, it appears as though the students are being pretty good." Quake Rocks Hawaiian Islands HONOLULU (AP) — A moderate of f shore earthquake rattled the Hawaiian Islands but caused no damage or injuries, authorities said, The temblor, measuring 5.5 on the Richter scale of ground motion, struck at 5:33 p.m. Sunday about 35 miles west of Hawaii Island. Fifteen minutes later, an aftershock of 4.1 was recorded. A 5.2 earthquake hit in the same area two days earlier. The strength of Sunday's quake was not great enough to generate a tsunami, or tida! wave, said Richard Sillcox of the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center. The temblor was unrelated to Kilauea, the world's most active volcano, which has been in eruption on Hawaii Island since Jan. 3, 1983, said Tom Wright, scientist in charge of the U.S. Geological Survey's Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. Thieves Take Locomotive For Joyride CHICAGO (AP) — Two men stole a locomotive and took it on a three-mile joyride at speeds up to 50 mph before it derailed, Chicago & North Western Railroad officials said. No injuries were reported in the derailment late Saturday on the city's North Side, railroad spokesman Fred Bloedorn said. The unidentified men boarded the 1,500-horsepower, 112-ton freight locomotive at a rail yard and fled after a rail tower operator switched it to another rail yard and it jumped the tracks because of its speed, he said. The 25-year-old locomotive, valued at $100,000 to $150,000, was badly dented when it fell on its side, but crews were not immediately able to determine how much repairs will cost, he said. Senate Starts On Budget WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate budget writers get their shot this week at crafting a $1 trillion fiscal 1989 federal spending plan, an exercise that normally causes fur to fly but this year should be relatively tame. With 1988 an election year, a truce has taken hold in what is usually a three-way budget battle among the White House and congressional Democrats and Republicans. The reason is last fall's budget summit pact between Congress and the administration, an accord that settled most of the fiscal fights well in advance. Lawmakers are showing no inclination to reopen the usually wrenching decisions about taxes and military and domestic spending that the summit has already made. "There are enough hopeless endeavors here without taking on another," said Sen. Rudy Boschwitz, R-Minn., a member of the Senate Budget Committee. The budget panel scheduled meetings beginning today to write the spending plan for fiscal 1989, which begins Oct. J. Committee members say they expect their work to be completed as early as Tuesday or Wednesday. In a rare show of bipartisan unity, the House approved a $1.1 trillion budget last Wednesday. There, as in the Senate, the only real question left for the lawmakers to decide was how to divide up the $169.2 billion the summit accord allows for domestic programs that Congress directly controls. When President Reagan sent his budget proposal to Congress last month, he asked for a $2.4 billion increase in space and science programs. Visitation rights for mother at issue HACKENSACK, N..J. (AP) Two years after her birth, the blue-eyed toddler once known as Baby M must*-undergo a last legal tug-of-war today between her father and the surrogate mother who refused to surrender her. The court hearing, ordered in a landmark ruling by the New Jersey Supreme Court, is 1 expected to determine how much time surrogate mother Mary Beth Whitehead-Gould should be allowed to spend with her child, now legally known as Melissa Stern. Both sides in the dispute strongly disagree over what woul . be in the child's best interest, with the key issue cen- terin;.; on whether continued cont;< 1 with Mrs. Whitehead- Gould would be harmful or healthy "Ti;e critical thing is that the.se adu' ; can get on with their lives, put the conflicts of the past behind them and support one another," said Dr. David Brodzinsky, who acted as a court-appointed psychologist in the widely publicized 1986 trial that marked the first court ruling on a surrogacy contract. The judge in that trial barred Mrs. Whitehead-Gould from seeing Melissa, but on Feb. 3 the state Supreme Court declared surrogacy for pay illegaf and restored Mrs. Whitehead- Gould's parental rights, while granting custody to the Sterns.
