Star-Bulletin Photo by Dean Sensui. By Tim Ryan Star-Bulletin Writer Ferdinand Marcos squinted into the bright Hawaiian sunshine as he stepped from a military jet this morning. The tan golf hat he wore did not help keep the sun out of his eyes. His arrival in the Islands was a sharp contrast to the ceremony and festivities of previous visits when crowds gathered with flags and flowers to greet the man who was president of the Philippines for 20 years. Today's event was somber and restrained; just a few dignitaries waited on the tarmac at Hickam Air Force Base when Marcos' plane landed. About 300 others were gathered, but most of them were military officials, news reporters and photographers. In what military officials called some of the tightest security ever in Hawaii there were at least 200 security people in the area members of the news media were carefully checked to make sure they had proper credentials and were not carrying any weapons. AFTER LEAVING the plane, Jean Ariyoshi, the wife of the governor, draped an orange and brown cigar lei over Marcos' thin shoulders. She embraced him for a few seconds; his face remained expressionless. Gov. George Ariyoshi gave a Maunaloa-style vanda lei to Imel-da Marcos, catching the garland on her sunglasses for a moment as she stood on a faded red carpet placed over the tarmac. Marcos made no speeches nor did he looked toward the news reporters and photographers who stood about 100 yards from the plane. News crews from all three major U.S. television networks and several international news organizations from London, Japan, Canada and Germany were there. Marcos' daughters left the plane after their mother and were carrying several boxes of disposable diapers. Their children tumbled around outside the plane. About a dozen base residents took pictures with instant cameras. Outside Hickam's gates, a bigger crowd of about 150 Marcos supporters gathered. They chanted, "We Marcos. We love Marcos." love PARKED CARS lined the highway for about a mile leading into the base. Several of the supporters held a banner that read We love you Ferdinand Marcos. Please live with us." Marcos' arrival on Guam yesterday was also low-keyed. Few people, other than security forces and government and military officials, were on hand to greet him. Marcos reportedly left the Philippines on a stretcher. Although he appeared to be thin and weak, he appeared to have no trouble walking along the carpet at Hickam today. He did, however, move slowly down the steps of the plane, leaning on a supporting shoulder of a customs official. Exiled Dictator, Family to Stay at Hickam Base Aquino Picks Cabinet; Amnesty Planned By Denis D. Gray MANILA. Philippines (AP) President Corazon Aquino today named her Cabinet and said she will seek a cease-fire with communist guerrillas waging an insurgency in the countryside. Her vice president announced plans for a general political amnesty. - - -A Aquino, who assumed command yesterdav after longtime President Ferdinand E. Marcos fled in defeat, met with at least 11 members of the Marcos Cabinet, including his prime minister. Cesar Virata. At the brief meeting at her former campaign headquarters, she shook their hands and asked for cooperation. "Lets, forget the past." she said, asking them to stay on until her appointees can take over. AT THE NEWS conference where she announced her Cabinet, Aquino said she did not plan to ask the United States to extradite Marcos. "I have said I can be magnanimous In victory," she said. "I would like to show by example that the sooner we can forget our hurt, then the easier it will be for our country to start rebuilding from the ruins left us." She said a new Commission on Good Government would be charged with investigating alleged illegal transfers of wealth outside the country by Marcos Tom to Page A-4, CoL 1 V By June Watanabe Star-Bulletin Writer. Deposed Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos, accompanied by 88 family members and supporters, arrived in Honolulu late this morning, a day after leaving the country he ruled for two decades. Under clear skies and tight security, Marcos, unsteady on his feet, stepped off a military aircraft and onto the tarmac at Hickam Air Force Base. The arrival was watched closely by security forces and news media representatives from throughout the world. The base was closed minutes before Marcos' plane touched down at 10:42 a.m. WITH MARCOS were his wife, Imelda; Gen. Fabian Ver, a close ally and former chief of his nation's armed forces; and Ver's wife. Also on the military jet were members of Marcos' immediate family, including his children and grandchildren. An Air Force press spokesman said the U.S. government would not make public the passenger list. Marcos and his entourage left Andersen Air Base on Guam at 4 a.m. Hawaii time aboard a camouflaged Air Force C-141 aircraft. After the plane taxied to the reception area at Hickam, there was a 10-minute wait before Marcos emerged. Wearing a tan golf jacket and hat, the 68-year-old Marcos had to be helped down the steps of the aircraft. He leaned on the shoulder of a customs official in front of him as he shuffled from the plane. MARCOS WALKED slowly toward the of ficial greeting party which included Gov. and Mrs. George Ariyoshi; Gen. Robert W. Bazley, commander of Pacific Air Force; Francis Lum, state Erotocol officer; and Alfred ynn, director for public and governmental affairs for CINC-PAC. Mrs. Ariyoshi and Mrs. Bazley presented leis to Marcos. Mrs. Ariyoshi hugged Marcos. Imelda Marcos, dressed in Capitol Rally, A-3 Welcome Here? A-3 Super Victory, A-4 P.I. Economy, A-4 Gifts to Reagan, A-4 Commentary, A-10 black, was greeted by the governor and Bazley. Marcos and his entourage were expected to stay at guest quarters at Hickam. After leaving the plane, Marcos was whisked away in a black limousine and taken to guest quarters on the base. The rest of the party was taken by cars and vans to other base quarters. The U.S. government escort on the military transport was Lt. Gen. Teddi Allen of the Joint Military Forces in the Philippines. MEANWHILE, outside the Hickam gate, about 200 pro-Marcos demonstrators gathered. Several city police officers kept watch but made no arrests.
