National news Congress to hear Costa Rican president l WASHINGTON < AP i — House Speaker Jim Wright, resisting calls j to vote new aid for Nicaragua's Contra rebels until the peace process runs its course, says Costa Rican President Oscar Arias will report to Congress next month on efforts to reach a diplomatic settlement. j Wright said ambassadors of four Central American nations, including Nicaragua, are '^guardedly optimistic" that the accord : reached in Guatemala earlier this month by the presidents of all five : Central American countries will bring peace to the region. I; The Texas Democrat said the ambassadors told him during a meeting Tuesday that the peace effort is "on target, on track." • 'They recognize there are pitfalls and dangers and obstacles in the road but they believe they can be overcome." Wright said. They all agree, Wright said, "that the; really difficult and tedious thing is finding the mechanism by which the cease-fire called for in the accord can be set in motion, can be monitored and verified." The ambassadors are optimistic. Wright said, "because for the first time in a generation there is an accord among Central American presidents." Wright said he invited Arias on Monday to address members of Congress and that Arias accepted in a telephone call Tuesday morning. , Arias will address an informal gathering of House members and senators on the House floor on Sept. 22. the day before he is scheduled to address the United Nations in New York. Wright said. Exam shows jet flaps in ^Tong position WASHINGTON (AP) — An examination of wreckage confirms the wing flaps of Northwest Airlines Flight 255 were in the wrong position, according to investigators who say they still are trying to determine if a disconnected alarm compounded the error. The National Transportation Safety Board said Tuesday that additional tests are needed to determine conclusively whether a circuit breaker that controlled power to the alarm system may have been pulled, or if it failed because of a mechanical problem. The Northwest Airlines jet barely made it off the ground Aug. 16 before it crashed near the Detroit "Metropolitan Airport, killing 156 people. The crash, the second worst in U.S. aviation history, and a number of incidents involving pilot mistakes earlier this summer has contributed to an increasing uneasiness among some federal officials about the alertness of pilots in the cockpit. Allan McArtor. the new head of the Federal Aviation Administration, plans to meet with the chief pilots from most of the airlines as well as other industry representatives on Thursday for "a discussion on pilot professionalism,'' according to FAA spokesman Bob Buckhorn. Buckhorn characterized the meeting in Kansas City, Mo., as "a fact-finding and listening session" and said McArtor will hear presentations from about 18 of the pilots attending. A failure by the pilots of Northwest Flight 255 has been seen so far as the most likely reason the flaps were not in proper position for takeoff, although a mechanical malfunction has not been ruled out entirely, according to Sources close to the investigation who spoke only on condition they not be named. The reason for the breakdown in the alarm system seems less clear. If the additional tests show that power was maintained to the alarm, investigators say a mechanical failure likely caused the breakdown which kept the pilots from being warned that they were taking off with improper flap settings. Report: Casey backed Iran arms sale WASHINGTON CAP) ,— The late CIA Director:William J. Casey sidestepped subordinates who questioned the Reagan administration's secret weapons sales to Iran, according to testimony quoted in a published report W : ednesday. Clair George, the agency's deputy director for operations, said Casey overruled his objections to individuals chosen by 1 'the-White House to carry out the arms deals. The New York Times reported. George's closed-door testimony Aug. 5 and 6 before the congressional Iran-Contra committees was scheduled for release Wednesday. The Times quoted a transcript it obtained in advance. ; ; According to the newspaper's report, George told the committees he raised questions about Iranian middleman Manucher Ghor- banifar arid retired Air Force Maj. Gen. Richard Secord, who arranged logistics for the secret arms shipments. , . George said he %vent directly to Casey with his objections after learning that Ghorbanifar was the only intermediary for dealings •with Iran. " "I said. 'Bill. I am not going to run this guy anymore;' which means in our language. 'I will not handle him. he'is a bum "' George said. , . i ' • ; ; ' < ' • : . • , However. George said. Casey began to "wire around" — or circumvent — subordinates who objected to the plan. Reduce tensions. Reagan asks Soviets _LOS ANGELES (AP) — President Reagan is urging the Soviet Union to take steps to relieve world tensions as his negotiators in Geneva stake out a new position on a major obstacle to arms control. The president, who flew by helicopter to Los Angeles from his ranch north of Santa Barbara, Calif., on Tuesday, was speaking Wednesday to the Town Hall of California, a civic organization, on the subject of East-West relations. An administration official, speaking on condition he not be identified, said Tuesday the speech would outline no dramatic new proposals but would contain "some new things that haven't been heard before." "The president will call for several new moves by the Soviet Union to demonstrate interest in reducing world tensions," the official said. He declined to specify what the stepsWould be, but did say the president would enumerate guideposts he has outlined in the past for assessing Soviet intentions. These include withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan, demolition of the Berlin Wall and self- determination for countries in Eastern Europe. The official said Reagan also would discuss the arms talks in Geneva, where U.S. negotiators unveiled Tuesday a new. simplified proposal on the thorny issue of verifying an arms agreement. In Geneva, U.S. spokesman Tern- Shroeder said Soviet acceptance in July of eliminating all intermediate-range nuclear missiles had enabled the United States to change its verification requirements, including those for on-site inspections. Democrats pick Mississippi state auditor JACKSON. Miss. (AP) Crusading state Auditor Ray Mabus smashed a two-decade jinx to win the Democratic nomination for governor and will have history on his side when he faces GOP businessman Jack Reed in November. Mabus. 38. beat plantation owner Mike Sturdivant by.a nearly 2-to-l margin in a bruising runoff Tuesday. •Mabus was the top vote-getter in an eight-way primary Aug. 4. but failed to win a majority, forcing the runoff. In the five previous runoffs since 1967. the No: 2 finisher in the primary had won the nomination. "Tonight we helped Mississippi make history." Mabus told supporters Tuesday. "Our victory shows we're not going to settle for the status quo in Mississippi anymore. All our lives we've heard people tell us we can't. We're showing that we can." Mabus is a decided favorite in the Nov. 3 election. Mississippi hasn't had a Republican governor since Adelbcrt Ames, a carpetbagger general from Maine, tefl office in IIP*. Pre-election polls had showed Mabus a favorite in the runoff, but his margin was a surprise. It was the largest in a runoff by a Democrat in more than a half century. With 99 percent of the state's 2.059 precincts reporting, Mabus had 463.923 votes, or 65 percent, to 254.019 votes, or 35 percent, for Sturdivant. "To Ray Mabus and his supporters. I say congratulations." Sturdivant said, "and to those of you who were disappointed tonight, remember that the dreams that unite us are greater than the differences of opinions that sometimes separate us." The 59-year-old Sturdivant, who spent about $1.5 million of his own money on the campaign and lost a race for governor in 1983, said he wouldn't run again. Gov. Bill Allain, a Democrat, is not seeking a second term. although a year ago the voters approved an amendment permitting back-to-back terms for governors for the first time since the 18th century. Mabus 1 viclory led a sweep by youthful candidates in the statewide runoffs for governor, attorney general, treasurer and auditor. All four winners were.42 or younger, and defeated older, more experienced campaigners. In the attorney general runoff. Gulf Coast District Attorney Mike Moore defeated Dale Danks. the 10-year mayor of Jackson, by a 59-41 margin. Pre- election polls had called the race a tossup. Moore. 35, will face Republican Jim Herring, an unsuccessful candidate for governor in 1979. in November. Pete Johnson, a distant relative of two former governors, won the auditor's runoff Also Tuesday. Alice Harden, former president of Mississippi's largest teachers union, became the first black woman elected to the state Senate. Hot check cases total 2,112 Justice of Peace Lindon Williams' court activity report for July shows that 2J112 cases were filed in connection with hot checks. Judge Wiliams noted there was "an influx of bad checks in July." These cases included insufficient funds for checks or accounts closed on checks which have been returned by banks to merchants or individuals. Also, in July, Williams' court counted 878 traffic misdemeanor • cases. there were 133 non-traffic misdemeanors. These are Class C misdemeanor criminal vtola- tions such as public intoxication, disorderly conduct, assault, etc. Sixty-four small claims and civil suits were handled by Judge Williams' court in July. Forcible entry and detainer suits for recovery of premises or property totaled 65 in July. Other activities included 2,215 arrest warrants issued to people who failed to contact the court and/or pay fines. There were 114 driving safety courses in lieu of paying fine* for moving violations. Judge Williams conducted If? trials and hearings on criminal and civil CAMS in July. it .f. I
