8 -SUNDAY, AUGUST 2,1987 -THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL- Bush clashes with brother of man killed in Nicaragua SHELDON, Iowa (AP) — Vice President George Bush offered praise for LL Col. Oliver North and, confronted by ffie brother of an American killed by the Nicaraguan Contras, said the slain engineer had sided with Marxist-Leninists. Friday's emotional exchange with the brother of Benjamin Linder came on what had been intended as the first of two days of campaign appearances with fanners in South Dakota and Iowa. Bush is expected to seek the GOP presidential nomination but has not formally announced his candidacy. At an "Ask George Bush" meeting in Canton, S.D., John Linder of Portland, Ore., said the Contras had admitted killing his 27-year-old brother in Nicaragua last spring, and that the administration had not protested. "My brother was shot in the head at point-blank range as he lay wounded," Under said. While Bush said "I mourn the death of every American," he added that there were many questions about the circumstances of the killing. "I'm not sure about the facts. Some facts had it that your brother was carrying an AK-47, Soviet- made rifle," said Bush. Just after the attack, witnesses said Linder was unarmed. But Witness for Peace, an organization that monitors and reports on rebel attacks, said he carried an AK-47 for protection when he went into dangerous areas. John Linder compared reaction to the death of his brother, a volunteer who had worked on rural development projects in Nicaragua since 1984, to the harsh American response to the death of a soldier in a German nightclub. "This time, nobody from the administration you represent has said it was murder," he said. 25% to 40% o oco/ n ff tffi&awsasssr* £.\J /O \J\ I Diamond rings for men and women.

JCPenney ftut Tr«« Center, UWati Study: 'Star Wars' cost - $1 trillion WASHINGTON (AP) — Launching "Star Wars" anti-missile defenses into orbit could cost up to $1 trillion, depending on countermeasures taken by the Soviet Union, according to a congressional study released Sunday. "These results have disturbing implications," the Congressional Research Service said in a report that estimated the cost of launching a system but not its development and manufacture. "Many of the variables that will drive up (Star Wars) launch costs are influenced partially of completely by Soviet actions," said the report, based in part on information from Star Wars scientists at the Sandia, Los Ala- mos and Lawrence Livermore national laboratories Costs could be cut if the Pentagon registers "spectacular advances" in anti-missile technologies, and develops launch systems less expensive than those now available. Among the steps the Soviets could take to frustrate Star Wars, and drive up costs, would be developing rocket boosters for its missiles which leave the atmosphere more quickly, equipping them with up to 500 decoys and building more missiles capable of reaching the United States. Costs could be controlled it the superpowers reach a treaty governing strategic arms and space-based missile defenses, the report said. Scientists and officials involved in the Strategic Defense Initiative, as Star Wars is formally known, have made similar points hi the past, but the congressional report offers the most detailed projection of launch costs. The computer estimates were made by congressional researchers Cosmo DiMaggiO and Robert L. Civiak, and released by three vocal Star Wars critics, Democratic Sens. William Proxmire of Wisconsin, I. Bennett Johnston of Louisiana, and Dale Bumpers of Arkansas. r Albertsons Sundae Bert. sold Rush Bars Fudoeslcle Oreo snackwiches Fudgesicie Bare Shannon Bars — PODSiClO sL, WiaDsodK Farms Yogurt P,I'» Dove Bars 1M 2»ts Walsh's Bourmet ute „ «2» Dove Forever Yours ....a" AC w Root Beer Bars Bomb Pop Jr. 12MCk Plus more...
