Reports say U.S. jet shot down by Libya KUWAIT (AP) — Kuwait's official KUNA news agency on Saturday quoted a diplomat as saying Libyan anti-aircraft missile batteries shot down a U.S. jet fighter over the Mediterranean the week. It did not identify the diplomat but reported he said the warplane was downed Wednesday by a Soviet- made SAM-7 missile as it flew over the Gulf of Sidra, also known as the Gulf of Sirte. The dispatch said the diplomat is based in Beirut, Lebanon. KUNA noted that a U.S. Navy spokesman in Rome had announced that a Marine F-18 Hornet was missing Wednesday after taking off from the aircraft carrier Coral Sea and was believed lost at sea off France's southern coast. A Navy spokesman in Washington, Lt. Cmdr. Bill Sonntag, was asked about the KUNA report and he said, "The Department of Defense is denying the allegations that the F-18 was shot down as being without foundation. We have not lost any aircraft to hostile action." There was no immediate official or press response in Libya to the KUNA report. The Coral Sea had departed from Naples, Italy, on Jan. 3 with about eight other vessels from the 6th Fleet and Libyan leader Col. Moammar Khadafy claimed that America was massing warships off the Libyan coast to prepare for an attack. Washington denied that assertion and said the task force was on a routine exercise in the western Mediterranean and far off the Libyan Sample The Lush Sound. Savor The Small Size.

A Pentagon spokesman, Lt. Col. Gene Sands, was asked about the Kuwaiti report and he said, "I have nothing to substantiate that.'' He referred all further queries to the Navy headquarters in Washington. Sonntag said the missing plane was on a training mission in the vicinity of Nice, France, when it disappeared. "The status of the plane is missing and believed lost," he said, adding that an investigation "is being conducted." Sonntag said he did not know where the Coral Sea was located when the plane took off Wednesday. White House spokesman Pete Roussel told reporters in Washington he had nothing to add to the Department of Defense comments. Reagan says U.S. takes seriously Libyan threats WASHINGTON (AP) - President Reagan says threats by Col. Moammar Khadafy to attack U.S. military bases in Europe are being taken seriously because the United States "should be ready for any contingency" in dealing with Libya. During an interview with a group of European journalists, Reagan was told that the Libyan leader "has threatened to hit American bases in Europe and the people around them." "We take those threats seriously," Reagan said, according to a text of the Friday interview that was released Saturday by the White House. Other than an ongoing response to the threat of terrorism, a Pentagon spokesman said he knew of no special precautions being taken at overseas bases following recent threats from Khadafy. "We've taken a number of precautions over the past year and a half at military installations" and embassies, said Lt. Col. Gene Sands. "We have certainly taken increased precautions. I am sure the Khadafy thing enters into it, but that is a larger part of the terrorism problem." Reagan declined to say whether the U.S. economic sanctions imposed against Libya in response to recent terrorist attacks would be followed by use of retaliatory force. "I can't discuss things of that kind," he said. "I just say that I think we should be ready for any contingency." But Reagan rejected a suggestion made last week by Sen. Howard Metzenbaum, D-Ohio, that Khadafy be assassinated if he is responsible for the Dec. 27 terrorist attacks on the Rome and Vienna airports. During interviews last week with the Cleveland Plain Dealer and a Cleveland television station, Met- zenbaum said: "Maybe we are at the point in the world where Mr. Khadafy has to be eliminated." AGE IS IRRELEVANT AFFLUENCE IS RELATIVE FROM HERE ON IN IT'S FACTOR Education, alone, links all segments of the population. It breaks down harriers between the generations. It reshapes time and priorities. It's the determining factor in not only what people want but now they plan to obtain it. The questions can be "how high the income" or "how high the reach" for that quality of life that comes with higher education. Education has become the single most determining factor in obtaining success. From here on in it's just you and the Education Factor. Call Now To Change Your Future (913) 825-5422. I-800-432-0270.

He added that President Reagan is "aware of the story." In the initial report from Rome, Lt. Gregg Hartung, spokesman for the Command Fleet Air Mediterranean, said the twin-engine jet was in the vicinity of Nice when it vanished. Officials at the El Toro Marine base near San Diego, Calif., reported the missing pilot was Maj. John Nicholas Summerlin, 38, and a native of Fort Pierce, Fla.
