Votaw, an employee of the Agency for International Development. An Air Force C-141 Starlifter transport, its fuselage mottled In green and gray camouflage, landed at 4:48 p.m. under pewter-gray' skies, carrying the coffins from Lebanon. 1 Undersecretary of State Lawrence S. Eagleburger, who escorted the flag-draped wooden coffins on the 'Jong flight from Beirut, led a party of Marine officers off the plane in sifence moments after the landing. i In htS weekly radio address earlier in the day, the president said: "I undertake this task in great sadness, but also witji tremendous sense of pride in those who sacrificed their lives in our country's efforts to bring peace to the Middle East and spare others the agony of war."

Sutherland,,, a spokesman for Search, said hr a recent telephone interview: "WE BELIEVE SHE . . . (could be) one of a group who are never called to the public's attention. This is a group' which is called 'pushouts' or 'throw-aways.' These are kids from the tiny infant found in a trash can to young teen-agers who are literally thrown out of the house, or abandoned and dumped by their families," said Sutherland. "These kids never get any publicity. There are no groups hollering about them.iut if you have a runaway shel- ter qr a social service "agency involved with kids, they know about them." Sutherland said the U.S. Senate in 1981 "very clearly" identified this problem in a report, "Homeless Youths, the Saga of Pushouts and Throwaways." ' "As many as a half million kids per year are ' chucked out by their families," he said. "That total exceeds all .the runaways who never come home, all the custodial abductions, all the real kidnappings or unexplained disappearances of small children. "THESE ARE THE kids not the runaways who end up working the 42nd Street-Times Square areas of New York, the Loop in Chicago and the Strip In San Francisco," he said. Or, in a pauper's grave.. Search was founded three years ago by a number of people like Sutherland who worked in the juvenile justice system, sdfcfal services or education. "Most of us had a lot of experience workfrlg directly with kids who were Involved in minor scrapes with the law and that included occasional runaways," he said. "We became aware of the fact there was no effective national methodology for getting information out on runaways. Teletype s' (from law enforcement agencies) give you 'bare bones' information. There is no photograph, which is a big drawback. We figured a publication would be a good thing to use to look for kids." HCW SUCCESSFUL has SearcA been in assisting In identifying the dead?-. W Sutherland is not sure. "We seldom hear about those cases. Sometimes we'll find out maybe a year or later a person has been identified and nobody bothers to tell us. We tend to do; better on the location of missing individuals. Whenever we become aware'of the fact that a case is closed, we publish that." In the May 1982 issue, 14 cases had been withdrawn from the Search listing because the person had been located.' Miami County's Jane Doe was not one of them.

(. The president surprised the , 2,000 guests when,' after comedian Mark Russell finished his act mocking Washington ways, he rose and announced: "Nancy and I had another sad journey that we had to make before coming here tonight. I just don't feel that coming as we did from the ceremony at Andrews Air Force Base that I could come here" and make a speech. . , , "I will keep my script and I hope you will give me a rain check next year," the president said. He then left the room. IN HIS RADIO ADDRESS, Reagan reaffirmed his pledge not to be deterred from pursuing peace in the Middle East. The unknown terrorists who carried out the bombing, he said, had "failed in their purpose. "They mistakenly believe that if they're cruel enough and violent enough they will weaken American resolve and deter us from our effort to help build a lasting and secure peace in the Middle East." Well, if they think that, they don't know too much about America," Rea- gan said. t The Americans killed in the bombing were William R. Mclntyre, Thomas R. Blacka, Albert N. Votaw, Army Sgt. 1st Class Richard Twine, Army Staff Sgt. Ben H. Maxwell, Army Staff Sgt. Mark E. Salazar, Marine Cpl. Robert V. McMaugh, Robert C. Ames, Phyliss N.

The Times said the diaries "will significantly alter historical judgments on Hitler's strategic thinking, exercise of power and personality." Among the revelations in the diaries, the Times said, Was that Hitler ordered his forces to refrain from destroying the British troops who were trapped at Dunkirk In 1940 when France was falling to the Nazis. The British were allowed to escape across the English Channel in small boats because Hitler hoped to negotiate for peace with the British, the Times said. The newspaper said the diaries also throw new light on the flight of Rudolf Hess, Hitler's deputy, to Scotland in May 1941 to try to make peace with Britian. ALTHOUGH HITLER denounced Hess when he was captured and declared him insane, the diaries are reported to show that he had personally approved Hess' bizarre mission. They also state that if Hess's mission failed, it was agreed he would feign insanity and remain silent. Hess, 89, is serving a life sentence for war crimes in Spandau prison in West Berlin. He is the last member of Hitler's inner circle still behind bars. Stern magazine has not said how it acquired the diaries, which are now in a Swiss bank vault. But Lord Dacre, in an article in the Times, revealed some of the details of what happened to them after the war. He said that on April 21, 1945, when the Russian grip was closing around Berlin, Hitler's personal pilot, Gen. Hans Baur, arranged for a plane to leave the city carrying documents and one of Hitler's aides. That evening, Baur, still in Hitler's bunker, received a telephone call saying the plane had crashed near the Czech border, apparently because it had flown too low to try to escape enemy aircraft. BAUR WROTE IN his memoirs that Hitler, upon learning of the crash, exclaimed, "In that plane were all my private archives, what I had intended as a testimony for posterity! It Is a catastrophe!" That reference in Baur's memoirs, published more than 20 years ago, generally went unnoticed. But Lord Dacre said an unnamed German researcher decided to follow up the clue and tried to trace the remains of the plane's, cargo. The researcher discovered that a German army officer, who had been sent to the crash scene, had found the diaries In steel containers and had kept them for many years, concealed in a hayloft in what became communist East Germany. In 1981, the researcher located the former officer, now more than 80 years old, and bought the diaries. They were smuggled out of East Germany to Switzerland and will ultimately be turned over to the West German Federal Archives. The diaries are reported to have been written in blue ink in 100-page volumes, sealed with the Nazi eagle and swastika insignias and signed at the bottom of each page. THE TIMES SAID Hitler kept their existence secret from everyone except 3 Martin Bormann, his secretary, who was responsible for packing them and; sending them out of Berlin, Bormann! escaped after the war and Is believed; to be living In Latin America. The Times said the diaries disclose that Hi' tier thought British Prime Minister Ne ville Chamberlain, who fell fronj power at the outset of war, was a; tough and tenacious negotiator. This; contrasts with the verdict of mos historians, who have judged Chamber lain harshly for failing to stand up to! Hitler over the question of territory; claimed by Germany. ( J Lord Dacre cautioned that much of; the content of the diaries was overt; propaganda and Hitler's version of; events must not be accepted uncriti-j cally. Although the diaries claimed; that Hitler approved of Hess' flight to; Scotland, Lord Dacre said he was; skeptical Hitler actually planned suchj a "harebrained adventure." , The Times said the archive included; many drawings and sketches by Hi-; tier, including several pictures of Eva Braun, his mistress whom he married; just before their joint suicide. Some of; the sketches show her naked. ? SAVE SPRING SALE The real thing SOLID Western Red Cedar . . . Out- HOUSES U S Patent No. D223814 True quality the aristocrat of storage barns!
