6 -SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 20,1987 THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL. Iran attack claimed, Pope touched hearts of millions A | U.S. plane crashes Iraq says Iran shelled its cities MANAMA, Bahrain (AP) — Iraq accused Iran of shelling seven Iraqi cities and towns Saturday and killing 11 civilians, after long-range Iraqi air raids on oil targets in the Persian Gulf that damaged a Cypriot supertanker off Iran. South of the gulf, rescue teams searched today for two crewmen reported missing after their U.S. Navy jet disappeared and apparently crashed Friday night in the northern Arabian Sea while on a routine training mission. The crash was reported by Navy personnel in the United States. Navy and diplomatic sources in the Persian Gulf, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said there was no indication the plane was downed by hostile fire. In New York, The Associated Press obtained a confidential United Nations report Friday saying Iran may agree to an informal cease-fire with Iraq. North of the gulf, Kurdish separatist guerrillas teamed up with Iranian commandos to launch an offensive in northern Iraq that killed or captured more than than 1,000 Iraqi troops this week, Iran claimed. The Kurdish advance in the mountains of northwest Iraq increasingly threatens vital oil pipelines into Turkey and has turned Iraq's northern border into a second front in the 7-year-old Iran-Iraq war. The 1 Navy A-6E Intruder attack jet was on a routine night training mission when it crashed Friday night in the northern Arabian Sea, the U.S. Pacific Command in Honolulu said. The incident occurred about 1 p.m. EDT, according to a statement read over the telephone by Col. Dick Heil, a command spokesman. The jet, with a crew of two. was assigned to the aircraft carrier USS Ranger, which was on routine patrol in the area, he said. The jet was returning to the Ranger when the crash occurred, according to the statement. The Ranger arrived in the northern Arabian Sea in late August to relieve the carrier Constellation and provide air cover for convoys of reflagged Kuwaiti tankers and their U.S. Navy escorts in the Persian Gulf. Baghdad Radio, monitored in Cyprus, interrupted regular programming today to report that 11 civilians were killed and 33 injured in long-range Iranian artillery shelling against residential areas in seven border cities and towns. The report said the bombardment which first targeted only Basra, Iraq's second largest city, began Friday morning and continued today. Marine salvage executives, meanwhile, said an Iraqi missile struck the 238,909-ton Aktinia on its starboard side during the night. The executives, who have reported accurately on previous attacks in the gulf, said they could not determine the extent of damage the Cypriot vessel sustained They said the 1,053-foot Aktinia was apparently en route to the key Iranian oil terminal of Kharg Island when it was hit by the Iraqi warplanes. An Iraqi military communique had reported Iraqi warplanes flew a 700-mile mission to attack Iran's Lavan Island oil terminal in the southern Persian Gulf and also hit an unidentified ship off the Iranian coast Friday. Meanwhile, at the United Nations in New York, a report by U.N. Secretary-General Javier Perez de Cuellar on his recent gulf peace mission said Iran indicated it would agree to an undeclared cease- fire while the United Nations identifies the aggressor in the Persian Gulf war.

Dora St., Ukiah 462-9424 A eventful Northern California tour SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Pope John Paul H embraced AIDS victims, addressed the plight of migrants and farmers and touched millions of hearts in Northern California, but he also met with the most spirited protests of his U.S. tour. He celebrated Mass at a race track and a ballpark, visited historic missions and, like any tourist, gazed at the fog-shrouded Golden Gate Bridge. He brought tears of joys to the handicapped he blessed, and evoked squeals of delight from children. He heard an impassioned plea by a woman lay leader for a greater voice for women in the Catholic Church, and several nuns asked that women be allowed to become priests. About 2,000 homosexuals shouted "Pope, go home!" outside Mission Dolores. Hundreds of Jews demonstrated outside St. Mary's Cathedral. And two dozen Native Americans quietly but angrily protested near the Carmel Mission while the pope prayed at founder Juniperp Serra's grave. It was a 29-hour whirlwind tour that cost several million dollars to stage, a year to plan and thousands of people to coordinate. Laguna Seca Raceway was transformed from a dusty bowl to a resplendent outdoor cathedral, with a 100-foot cross and a river of red petunias leading to an altar made of vegetable crates from nearby farms. Candlestick Park was turned from the home of the San Francisco Giants and 49ers into the setting for a six-tiered, $500,000 stage sheathed in flowing banners of purple, white and blue. About 71,000 people attended the 2V4 hour service. At both sites, bulletproof glass surrounded simple but elegant altars, "as opposed to grandiose, as happened in other cities the pope visited," said Candlestick architect Richard Zlatunich. "In Los Angeles, they had a 12-foot-tall chair for the pope that made it look like he was a munchkin." Foul-ups with buses caused at least 3,500 angry and frustrated worshipers to miss Mass at Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterey on Thursday and a breakdown in communications delayed for several hours the departure of many among the 72,000 who attended. Yet for such a tour, with all the security risks involved, there were relatively few difficulties. If at times the pope's messages seemed obscured by the problems or upstaged by the hoopla surrounding his visit and brief meetings with dignitaries, such as actor and Carmel Mayor Clint Eastwood, he spoke out forcefully on several subjects. He took on political issues and defended strict interpretation of church doctrine. He listened to critics, but frowned on demands that women be ordained as priests. Addressing migrant farmworkers and growers of lettuce and other vegetables in the nation's "salad bowl" in Monterey, the pontiff appealed to them to find solutions to disputes over wages and working conditions. He said he knew thousands of American farmers in recent years have become impoverished and lost their land and way of life. "Your bishops and the whole church in your country are deeply concerned," he said. He offered no answers, but said, "At every level of the agricultural process, the dignity, rights and well-being of people must be the central issue. No person in this process — grower, worker, packer, shipper, retailer or consumer — is greater than the other in the eyes of God." He asked landowners, growers and others in positions of power to "respect the just claims of their brothers and sisters who work the land," and asserted that those rights "include the right to share in decisions concerning their services and the right to free association with a view to social, .cultural and economic advancement." "Pretty words," said Maria Tapia, a migrant farmworker from Turlock. "God would that they become reality. Growers listened, but several balked at his "interference" in their affairs. "I think he ought to mind his own business — he should have stayed home," said Paul W. Bertuccio, a large-scale grower of lettuce, cabbage, walnuts and other crops in San Benito County. "It's an honor that he comes here (but) he should be professing religion, not telling us what to do with the people.

"I ask you to welcome these new citizens into your society and to respect trie human dignity of every man, woman and child," he snick Unfortunately, several thousand of the Spanish-speaking migrants at the service were unable to understand the pope's Polish-accented English, and local priests said they would have to translate ir> parishioners. In Carmel, the pope didn't offer any surprises, as some hoped. He praised Father Jurupero Serra and laid a wreath on his grave, but didn't beatify the Franciscan friar. However, the pope asked the clergy and parishioners to follow Serra's example of evangelism. The pope then stepped off a platform and blessed about SOTiandicappcM people.
