Rainfall was expected to spread east tonight and develop over most areas of the state Wednesday. Sam Alfano running for position as county judge Judge Sam Alfano is asking the voters of Harris County to promote him to County Criminal Court at Law No. 5. The judge of the court is retiring and Alfano has announced his intention to succeed the retiree. Alfano is a Houston native and he practiced law in Houston for 13 years before he was appointed judge in 1979. Judge Alfano and his wife, the former Jere Sue Parker of Baytown, have two children, Victor and Kelly. Mrs. Alfano is a school teacher who finds time in her busy schedule to work in her husband's campaign. "Qualifications and judicial experience are the most important issues in this race," Alfano said. "I have the endorsement of the Houston Police Patrolmen's Union and the Houston Police Officer's Association, the two largest organizations of Houston police officers," he said! "At the same time, I also have the support of the lawyers. I have twice been voted the Outstanding Municipal Court Judge, in the 1981 and 1985 Houston Bar Association Judicial Evaluation Poll," Alfano said. Judge Alfano is proud of his SAM ALFANO achievements and is quick to point out that since being appointed judge he has been reappointed twice and elevated to Associate Presiding Judge of the Municipal Courts of Houston. Alfano serves his community in various civic and parents' groups and has coached Little League baseball. He is active in the Association of American Judges, is a past president of the Texas Municipal Courts Association and has been on the faculty of numerous seminars for other judges.

(AP) — The East Coast's largest mortuary prepared Tuesday to receive the flag-draped coffins of Challenger's seven astronauts, three months and a day after the shuttle exploded nine miles above Earth. A C-141 aircraft was to depart from the space shuttle landing strip here Tuesday to take the bodies to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, where, NASA said, "they will be prepared in accordance with the wishes of the families." Although there would be a military honor guard and escorts from the astronaut corps, no formal ceremony was planned when seven ambulances brought the remains to the landing strip from a medical laboratory. The Dover mortuary is the East Coast receiving and embalming site for remains of goverment employees, military personnel or their relatives. In most cases, autopsies are performed at the site of death and embalming, cremation or preparation for burial takes place in Delaware. Among those treated there were the 237 U.S. servicemen killed in the 1983 Beirut, Lebanon, terrorist bombing, the 256 soldiers killed in the December jetliner crash in New- foundland arid the 913 People's Temple members who committed suicide at Jonestown, Guyana, in 1978. Officials at Dover said the mortuary work should take about a day and that the remains will be sent wherever the astronauts' families wish. Killed in the Jan. 28 explosion were Francis R. "Dick" Scobee, 46, the spacecraft commander; Navy Cmdr. Michael J. Smith, 40, the pilot; specialists Judith A. Resnik, 36; Ronald E. McNair, 35; and Air Force Lt. Col. Ellison S. Onizuka, 39; Gregory B. Jarvis, 42, a Hughes Aircraft engineer; and S. Christa McAuliffe, 37, a .New Hampshire schoolteacher and NASA's first private citizen 1 in space. An officialat Arlington'Na- tional Cemetery said Monday that Smith will be buried there Saturday with full Navy honors and Scobee on May 19, which would have been his 47th birthday. ' ' Onizuka's family has said it wants to return his body to his home in Hawaii for burial. Interment plans for the others have not been disclosed. Divers who retrieved, the bodies reported they were "not recognizable. Habib ends tour in meeting with de la Madrid MEXICO CITY (AP) — U.S. special envoy Philip Habib met with President Miguel de la Madrid in his final stop of a 12- nation tour of Latin America to talk about the progress of the Contadora peace process in Central America. President Reagan's Central American troubleshooter, in keeping with his practice, made no public statement Monday about the substance of his talks. • The government news agency Notimex reported Monday that Habib met with the de la Madrid and Foreign Minister Bernardo Sepulveda to establish a final position before the planned signing a Central American peace treaty in June. Mexico, along with Colombia, Venezuela and Panama, established the Contadora group in January 1983 to find a peaceful solution to Central American strife. Habib, who spent Sunday in the Pacific resort town of Acapulco, met Saturday with President Eric Delvalle of Panama and characterized the talks as "very, very cordial." Later that day, he went to Costa Rica where he met with President-elect Oscar Arias Sanchez, who will succeed President Luis Alberto Monge on May 8. The Contadora nations hope to get Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua to sign a peace pact on June 6. Habib began his tour of the governments involved in the peace process on April 18 with a visit to Guatemala. He visited all Central American nations except Nicaragua, the Contadora nations, and the four South American nations — Argentina, Brazil, Peru and Uruguay — that joined the effort last year as a support group. At a Contadora meeting earlier this month, Nicaragua refused to sign any Contadora peace accord until the Reagan administration halted aid to Contra rebels trying to overthrow the leftist Sandinista government. The Sandinista position is that it will sign the Contadora treaty when the United States signs a separate non-aggression pact with Nicaragua. The Reagan administration, in turn, has said it would only negotiate with Nicaragua if the Sandinistas opened talks with U.S.-backed rebels. The Sandinistas say they are willing to discuss any topic-with the United States with the exception of "internal matters'" ' of government. \ & EVERYTHING FOR THE PAMPERED DOG • Professional Training • Obedience & Protection • Professional Grooming (132 Different breeds) (No tranquiiizers used) * Boarding (Air Cond. & Heated Kennels) Open Mon-Sat 7:30-5:30 60 16 Bay way Drive 424-1711 DAN SHELLEY FOR State Representative Family Man - - Veteran - • Community Leader Vote May3, Republican Primary Pol. adv. pd for by Dan Shelley For State Rep. campaign Charles Cobb, Treat.
