(Allied troops) will have no problem defending themselves if Hussein puts massive force against ground hoops. Theyll have no problem fighting it off. Robinson said troops got a sense war was imminent as the Jan. 15 deadline neared. We. knew it was coming Jan. 16. Things got stricC he said. Before we were allowed to go to town to shopping centers. After that it was all ceased. On the night the allied forces bombed Baghdad, Robinson and others on base stayed up all night. We counted 100 fighters take off that night. Then Iraq retaliated dropping Scud missiles near Robinsons base. On one occasion a missile landed about 500 feet from the base, he said. The first few nights of Scud (missile) attacks people were tense, he said. We could see Scuds coming in kind of free-falling into the ground. Then we just saw a flash when they collided in midair with the Patriots. Iran From Page A1 Meanwhile, the newspaper of Iraqs ruling party boasted that the Baghdad government would drag the allies into a drawn-out ground war by staging more attacks like last weeks Iraqi push into the Saudi town of Khafji. Combat on the Saudi periphery should be based on the hit-and-run tactic formulated by our ancestors, the newspaper Al-Thawra said today. . For the moment, Iraqi forces appeared to be in a defensive posture. The U.S. military said Iraqi troops were deeply dug in, seeking shelter from punishing allied air attacks. Those attacks, continued today, with F-15s and Tornadoes roaring north into hazy skies from a Saudi air base. French warplanes hit positions of the crack Republican Guard in southern Iraq and Kuwait today, and the official Saudi Press Agency reported that the new French defense minister, Pierre Joxe, arrived to inspect French troops in the region. British Royal Ajr Force bombers carried out daylight raids today against bridges in Iraq and a large barracks and a Silkworm missile site in Kuwait, Group CapL David Henderson said.. He said at least two bridges were knocked out. In the Saudi port city of Jid-dah, 9mm pistol or rifle shots were fired at a shuttle bus Sunday night, slightly injuring two U.S. military personnel with flying glass, military officials said today. No one was apprehended. The military described it as the Emma M. Eggert Emma M. Eggert, 97, of 432 W. Military Ave., died Sunday, Feb. 3, 1991, at Memorial Hospital of Dodge County. Emma Rewinkel was bean Sept. 16, 1893, in Lyons. She moved to Seattle, Wash., in 1917, where she lived until returning to a farm near Lyons in 1922. She Eggert moved to Fremont in 1945. She was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, the Ladled Aid and the Lutheran Womens Missionary League. She married Herman Eggert Feb. 15, 1922, in Seattle. He died Sept. 8, 1977. Survivors include a daughter, Ruth (Mrs. Rupert) Dunklau of Fremont; a son, Richard Eggert of Russell, Kan.; seven grandchildren and two greatgrandchildren. The funeral will be 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at Trinity Lutheran Church in Fremont. The Rev. Burnell Beyers will officiate. Visitation will be Tuesday until 9 p.m. and Wednesday until service time at Lattin-Dugan-Chambers Funferal Home in Fremont. Burial will be in Memorial Cemetery. Memorials have been established to the Trinity Lutheran Church, The Lutheran Hour and the Memorial Hospital Foundation. Patriots are U.S. anti-missile missiles used to intercept Scud missiles. Then after a few days, Robinson said, they realized the Scud attacks were futile shots in the dark. "We just started laughing them off, he said. Robinson said he was bothered by media coverage of the war and reports of anti-war protests. My biggest irritation was seeing the anti-war protests (on the Cable News Network) talking about us just fighting for oil when a country has been taken over by another, Robinson said. No one has that right. The news media shouldnt be as involved as they are, he said. All theyre doing is assuming whats going on and it brings a lot of tension home. I think they should be removed from Saudi Arabia, Robinson said. , For now, being far removed from action can pose anxiety. Robinson said hes concerned about recent reports that two members from a transportation unit are missing after their jeep was found abandoned. An empty feeling came over me" because they could be people he knows, Robinson said. first such attack on American miltary personnel in Saudi Arabia. The new diplomatic effort by Iranian President Hashemi Raf-sanjani was reported by Irans official -Islamic Republic News Agency. It said he told a news conference in Tehran he is willing tp talk with Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and with Washington, provided Irans spiritual leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei approves. The Iranians have been hostile to the United States since the 1979 Islamic revolution. They also fought a 1980-1988 war with Iraq and have condemned its seizure of Kuwait six months ago. Rafsanjani said the Swiss have been acting as intermediaries with Washington on other issues and said the same channel can be used to start peace talks. White House spokesman Marlin Fitzwater reacted cautiously to the reported initiative, saying Iran had not indicated it was ready to resume direct contacts with the United States. Iran is not directly involved in this conflict and our interest is in getting Iraq out of Kuwait, Fitzwer said in Washington.. The Iranian peace bid came 1 one day after Defense Secretary Dick Cheney said only an Iraqi pullout from Kuwait could end the fighting now. We are not interested in a promise or. a pledge or a commitment to withdraw from Kuwait," he said Sunday on ABC Iran says it is neutral in the war. But the allies were puzzled' when Iraqi aircraft began seeking refuge in Iran, " Lccd fcreccst IWficul weather diu for downtown Fnmont (cautery a f u diviriaa c t the Fremont Department of Utilitier).

He also said a tape from the black box used to record the cockpit conversations aboard the USAir Vjediner was examined Sunday, .but it might be of limited use. We have quality problems I gather of a serious nature with the cockpit voice recorder due to -sonv mechanical mal- function and perhaps tape condition, he said. That could cause make it difficult to recreate the crew member's conversations during the crucial moments before the jetliner landed Friday. Its landing crushed the smaller Skywest plane and the two went into a fiery skid before smashing into an unused building near the runway. A federal investigator visiting the control tower found four light poles illuminating a ramp area blocked the view of the crash' site, Burnett said. One of those structures was dead in the middle, he said. Investigators today planned to test visibility from the tower and the air by placing another small plane on the runway and videotaping it under day and night conditions. A helicopter will retrace the approach of the USAir jetliner. The control tower was equipped with a ground-scanning radar designed to check for aircraft on runways, but it was inoperative for at least 18 hours before the crash, Burnett said. Diplomacy From Page A1 cease-fire to give diplomacy one last chance before the wars costs escalate. Their cause got. a boost Sunday when Communist Party leaders in Moscow appealed .for additional steps ... to stop the bloodshed. But so far, none of the principals are predicting a breakthrough. Iran, which waged war against Iraq from 1980 through 1988, has been a center for the recent diplomatic activity, receiving senior officils--Qver the weeekend from Iraq, Kuwait, France, Yemen and Algeria But Iranis ambassador to Pakistan stated bluntly on Sunday that Iraq is not ready to leave Kuwait anij noMcady for peace. The Iraqi officials who visisted Tehran expressed their own conditions for peace in the future, but presently they are not prepared to desist, Ambassador Javeed Mansouri told a news conference in Islamabad.

The planes apparently just crumpled together and fell, said Keith Ward, a pilot who was at the airport at the time of the accident. "It wasnt a glancing blow, it was a solid collision, said Ward. "They were so mangled you couldnt even tell they were aircraft. While no one apparently saw the crash about one mile south of this rural communitys airport, people heard it and firefighters arrived almost immediately. How the two planes collided was not immediately known. The airport has no control tower. The Cessna apparently was attempting to land at the airport, the Milwaukee Sentinel said today. Polk County Sheriff Craig Benware said today investigators believe the Piper took off in Minnesota but. he was unsure of the exact location. His office identified the victims, in the Piper as CraigS. Enerson, 31, of Brooklyn Center, Minn., and Tintbthy Schmeck-peper, 38, of Brooklyn Park, Minn. There was no word which man was at the controls. Investigators from the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board were expected at the scene today. The five victims in the Cessna were experienced skydivers, members of the St. Croix Valley Skydivers Club, and four of them were "very experienced pilots, said Quists wife, Debbie. posiuon. Jordan is another country where officials have appealed for a cease-fire. But Crown Prince Hassan, brother of King Hussein, said Sunday that the United States has left Saddam no option but to fight. When the United States says no face-saving, no linkage, no negotiations and then unleashes this tremendous force of destruction, capitulation is simply not of the Iraqi style, nor i it the Iraqi leadership -style, Hassan told CBS News on Sunday. I think its very, very clear that there is no option other than to fight -to the bitter end, and we are talking about martyrdom. In some capitals, hopes for peace were boosted by last weeks joint U.S.-Soviet statement suggesting a cease-fire if Iraq made an unequivocal commitment to leave Kuwait and took immediate concrete steps to do so. U.S. officials insisted that the statement represented no change in policy, and in any case there was no signal from Baghdad that Saddam was interested.

Another major threat to the presidents budget is the cost of the Persian Gulf War. The document released today includes what Bush termed a placeholder amount of $15 billion for increased U.S. military spending for a war that is estimated could cost anywhere from $28 billion to $86 billion. Bush said he would, send Congress a supplemental request to cover costs of the fighting in coming weeks. White ' House Budget Director Richard Darman said that the administration hopes the U.S. costs will not go much higher than the $15 billion figure. Darman said the bulk of the fighting should be financed by contributions from U.S. allies, but that assumption, like many of the others in the budget, was certain to be questioned in Congress. Die lawmakers are likely to make major changes in the presidents spending blueprint.- Like last year, all the budget material was included in a single book. This years version featured a patriotic red, while and blue cover with the tome weighing in at a hefty seven pounds and 2,029 pages. The administration laid the blame for the recession and the escalating budget deficit at the door of Saddam Hussein. The longest peacetime expansion was interrupted by the oil shock following Iraqs invasion of Kuwait, said presidential chief economist Michael Boskin in a budget briefing. In his budget message, Bush ctatement was followed by the flurry of diplomacy in Tehran prompted national security specialist Leslie Gelb, in a New York Times column, to wonder if Saddam could be circuitously constructing conditions for his ultimate surprise a deal. Since the war started, th? United States and its major allies have opposed any new peace initiatives, saying Saddam must first announce that his troops are leaving Kuwait An attempt by six North African states to open a U.N. Security Council debate on a possible cease-fire was rejected last week. So far, the Soviet Union has maintained its support for the allied position. But the Communist Party leadership on Sunday expressed concern over dangerous developments in the war and indicated that new Soviet diplomatic moves were possible.

They usually try to find the cheapest price they can, Tamke said. This means that while what the city pays per gallon is less than the county pays, the final ebsts are about the same.' The city does not pay a 14-cent federal tax on gasoline, while the sheriffs office is reimbursed for the tax once a year, Tamke said. Sutton said the price paid p& gallon does not include the cost of storage. conceded that the economy was in a slump, but he said, We can, however, return to growth soon and proceed on the path to a new era of expansion. The administration did not propose any 'tax increases to help narrow the deficits but instead called for a tax cut in capital gains, the profits earned from the sale of investments. This proposal stirred heated controversy and was rejected over the past two years with Democrats charging that it is a giveaway to the rich. The administration also proposed allowing penalty-free withdrawals from individual retirement accounts for first-time home buyers and creation of a new tax-free family savings plan, both ideas rejected by Congress in last years budget. In a reprise of the new federalism proposals put forward by Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon, the administration provides a laundry list of $21 billion in federal programs, which it said could be turned over to the states along with the money to pay for them. The list included everything from aid to public libraries to sewage construction grants. The president said he hoped Congress would select at least $15 billion in programs from this target list for the turnover. The proposal to turn the programs over to the states moves power and decision-making closer to the people, Bush said. But overhanging the entire budget were the forecasts for the largest deficits in U.S. history. The budget said the deficit for the current fiscal year would hit $318.1 billion. The party leaders urged the government to undertake the necessary additional steps before the international community and the United Nations to end the bloodshed, to preclude irretriev.-able damage to the environment and direct the military conflict into the channel of a political solution... , Several countries in the 102 member non-aligned movement, whose states are not formally allied with either the Soviet Union or Western nations, plan to meet in eight days in Yugoslavia to discuss a peace initiative, said a source in Algeria. The ' source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the meeting would be held despite doubts and reservations among the participating countries. These are expected to include Algeria, Ghana, India, Iran, Venezuela and Yugoslavia.
