Nation/World The Salina Journal Saturday, January 4,1986 Page 5 White anti-apartheid doctor forced from job JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (AP) — A white doctor who won a court order restraining security police from assaulting political prisoners, quit her government job Friday, saying she had received many death threats. Security police announced Friday they had detained without charge another 117 anti-apartheid activists; three whites, and the rest black or mixed race. Police say that brings to 6,733 the number arrested without charge under a five-month-old state of emergency, and 394 are still in custody. Police banned a memorial service planned for today in Port Elizabeth for prominent white anti-apartheid activist Molly Blackburn, saying they feared violence. The order came a day after 20,000 blacks and hundreds of whites peacefully turned out at Blackburn's funeral to hail her as a "warrior for justice." She died in a traffic crash Dec. 28. In another development, police said they were "striving to contain unrest and lawlessness" in a tense tribal district, Moutse, where residents report at least 20 people have died in fighting between blacks since the new year began. The clashes were sparked by a decision by the white-led government to merge mineral-rich Moutse into an impoverished neighboring homeland, KwaNdebele, on New Year's Day. Constitutional Development Minister Chris Heunis said the decision was final. In announcing her resignation, Dr. Wendy Orf, 27, said telephoned death threats "have just added to my misery" since September when, in the first move of its kind by a state employee, she filed suit against security police in Port Elizabeth. "I just have to get out of the job I am in and out of Port Elizabeth," she said. Since the suit, she has not been allowed to examine detainees, has been shunned by some colleagues and assigned to treat geriatric patients. Reagan assures Madrid U.S. will help with debt MEXICALI, Mexico (AP) — President Reagan promised Mexican President Miguel de la Madrid at the close of their meeting Friday that the United States "remains ready and willing" to help Mexico overcome its pressing $96 billion foreign debt. "Mexico's debt burden remains a serious challenge," Reagan told his host at the conclusion of their brief meeting in this Mexican border town. "I'm impressed with the commitment you've made, Mr. President, to meet this challenge and to take the necessary steps to achieve a robust, growing Mexican economy." U.S. officials have pointed out Mexico's failure to meet agreed-upon guidelines for bringing its inflation and spending under control. But Reagan made no mention of that in public. "The United States remains ready and willing to work with you," to overcome the debt crisis, he said. In a luncheon toast to his guest, de la Madrid said he and Reagan had "again considered the importance of finding a 'peaceful and negotiated solution" to conflict in Central America, but neither he nor Reagan gave any indication they had narrowed their differences on the delicate issue. "Mexico," de la Madrid pledged," will persist without respite or faltering in its efforts to find an overall solution that respects the legitimate Reagan Madrid interests of all the countries involved and that affirms the principles of self-determination of peoples, nonintervention, the peaceful solution of conflicts and cooperation for development." Reagan, returning the toast, told his host: "A commitment to democracy is the only true path to justice and economic progress. Mexico and the United States can and should stand- shoulder to shoulder in support of democracy in this hemisphere." But they mentioned no new path they might follow in the elusive search for settlements to fighting in El Salvador or Nicaragua, where Mexico has opposed U.S. efforts to combat leftist revolutionaries. Both men also mentioned the need to continue their battle against drug traffickers, who U.S. officials warned present an increasingly dangerous problem for the Mexican government. In his public remarks on arrival in this Baja California border town, 40-minute spree leaves five dead in Virginia SALEM, Va. (AP) — In a 40- minute rampage Friday, two men killed a trooper who stopped their stolen car, then broke into a couple's home, murdered the husband, kidnapped his wife and took off in their van, only to kill the woman and themselves as police closed in. The men, one identified as a Jamaican charged with murdering his former girlfriend in Pennsylvania, arrived at the couple's house after abandoning the car, which they had stolen after shooting the driver in the back, police said. The men and the kidnapped woman were found dead of gunshot wounds after the couple's van flipped over on Interstate 81. Officers giving chase had not returned gunfire from the van, said state police spokesman Charles Vaughan. The identity of the second man was not confirmed Friday afternoon. Police identified the slain trooper as R.M. McCoy, 28, a 5%year veteran of the force. The couple was identified as Anthony G. Loicano Jr., a restaurant chain vice president, and his wife, Christine, whose home on Little Brushy Mountain overlooks Salem, a western Virginia city. The couple's two sons, ages 7 and 8, were not injured, Vaughan said. They were being cared for at an undisclosed location until relatives could arrive from New Orleans. Frank Wade, a neighbor, said he heard nothing unusual during the night. But he said police told him someone had tried to take his van, but abandoned the effort after backing into a bank on the side of his driveway. The rampage apparently began Thursday night on 1-81 about 180 miles northeast of Salem, near Front Royal, where Harry Walston Harris, 35, of Martinsburg, W.Va., was shot in the back with a shotgun. Harris said he had picked up two men earlier in West Virginia and they forced him from his car. Vaughan said one of the men died of a shotgun blast. Loicano and the other man died of pistol shots, he said. IKI WEAR lO off / / / / x^ THAW Farwest® Bibs & Jackets _ Hotfingers® Youth & Adult Gloves Wigwam® Socks & Stocking Caps.

Fifth, Salina, Ks. 913-823-5133 (Call Collect) Juk lohwiiU Reagan hardly mentioned any problems, emphasizing instead the long history of friendly relations between the two neighbors. But even before the leaders' two hours of meetings and a working lunch, de la Madrid noted that the different history, culture and development of the two countries mean "our interpretation of political and economic reality cannot be identical." The two countries nonetheless share common ideals despite their differences, the Mexican president said, and Reagan "has always been prepared to listen in a friendly spirit to my arguments and to take steps... to overcome delicate and difficult problems." Arriving by helicopter in the central plaza of this Mexican state capital, Reagan and de la Madrid were greeted by a booming 21-gun salute for each of them. They reviewed the Mexican army honor guard and watched a Mexican folk dance before retiring to a government office for their private talks. Reagan, upon arrival, made no reference to differences between the two governments over policy toward Nicaragua and El Salvador, saying only that "issues of regional and global peace are of intense interest to us both, as is the expansion of democracy in this hemisphere." Astronauts ready for Monday liftoff CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — Seven astronauts whose flight on space shuttle Columbia was aborted two weeks ago just 14 seconds from liftoff flew here Friday for another try Monday. "We're looking forward now to being the first flight of 1986 instead of the last flight of 1985, and we're ready to go," mission commander Robert Gibson told reporters as the crew arrived from its training base in Houston. The countdown will start Saturday, aiming for a liftoff at 6:05 a.m. CST Monday. Columbia, the flagship of the shuttle fleet, has undergone an extensive overhaul and has not flown in space for more than two years. Former Salinan Steve Hawley is a member of the seven-person crew. Also included in the flight is Rep. Bill Nelson, a Florida Democrat whose district includes Cape Canaveral and the Kennedy Space Center. He is chairman of the House subcommittee on space science and applications and will be the second congressional observer to make a shuttle trip. Sen. Jake Garn, R-Utah, chairman of a subcommittee that oversees NASA funding, flew last April. During the five-day flight, the astronauts are to release an RCA communications satellite. The Church... 7..THE HOPE OF OUR COMMUNITY, OUR NATION! WHY DOES GOD CARE? We are so tiny in the vastness of space, so drab in the grandeur of'nature. Why docs God care about each one of us? This question has always plagued the mind of man. It will probably never be completely answered to his satisfaction until he sees and believes the evidence of man's importance to God: Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels. It remained for Jesus Christ to reveal the love of God.,Christians celebrate the sacrament which is their richest experience of the glory and honor God has given. The world over, men will rejoice in the Divine Love, so far-reaching, that God gave His Son for humanity. r\ Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday 'Friday Saturday •"• Genesis Daniel Deuteronomy 1 Kings Isaiah Matthew John :6-10 4:3240 ' 18:20-39 50:4-11 3:1-12 12:27-36 Scriptures Selected by The American Bible Society Copyright 1985, Keistet-Williams Newspaper Services, P.
