MEXICO CITY - Mexican aviation
investigators say their probe of Wed-
nesday's Western Airlines DC-10 crash
here centers on why the pilot used a
runway he had been told was closed.
But the investigators, who asked not
to be named, said they are not ruling
out what could be other, undetermined
causes for the crash that killed 72 of the
plane's 89 occupants and three persons
on the ground.
ENGINEER MARIO Aguilar of the
airport chief's office said, "23-left, the

runway where the plane crashed, is
definitely closed. None of its systems
are functioning, not even the runway
border lights or the runway approach
lights. Only 23-right has them right
now."
He said investigators are not ruling
out anything, but said, "it does not ap-
pear to be a structural fault in the
plane.'
An FAA spokesman in Washington
also ruled out structural problems in
the plane. DC-10s were grounded for 37
days after an American Airlines plane
crashed last May 25 at Chicago's
O'Hare Airport, killing 273 persons, the
worst aviation disaster in U.S. history.
THE PILOT, Capt. Charles Gilbert,
53, of Rolling Hills, Calif., was among
those killed.
Dave Jimenez, Western Airlines
spokesman, said the plane's black box

probe
recorder had been recovered from the
crash site and was a key piece of
evidence in searching for the cause of
the crash.
The Mexican government statement
yesterday said transcripts of a dialogue
between the pilot and the control tower
confirmed that he was told to land on
runway 23-right instead of 23-left.
THE TOWER-to-cockpit conver-
sation was in English but the English
language version has not been released
here.
A Spanish language transcript of the
last conversation between the tower
here and the approaching jet quotes
controllers as telling the pilot to use
runway 23-right, then warning him he
was veering to the left.
"Only a little," was the reply. Later,
according to the transcript, the plane
was told its landing lights were over 23-
left. The crew acknowledged the
message.
SECONDS LATER came the crash.
F1 ight officials say the plane, in-
bound from Los Angeles, apparently
tried to change runways at the last
minute but struck a truck with its lan-
ding gear, went out of control and
slammed into two buildings along the
runway.
American consular officials here said
yesterday that their unofficial list
showed 26 Americans among the dead,
and that at least five, possibly six,
Americans were among the 17 sur-
vivors. "There is one we haven't talked
to we suspect is an American citizen," a
spokesman said.
The consular spokesman said bodies
would be returned to the United States
if that is what families want, but that
many of the American dead were of
hispanic origin and had relatives in
Mexico.
A Western Airlines official said the
night flight had a reduced fare of 175
one-way from Los Angeles and was
popular with Mexican-Americans who
could not afford a more expensive
ticket.

From AP and Renter
WASHINGTON -
Acknowledging that he has yet to
demonstrate he can beat his
Republican rivals, Sen. Howard
Baker announced his candidacy
for president yesterday and
urged the voters to "judge me."
"By the time we're in the mid-
dle primaries, I've got to stop
being in second place and start-
being in first place," Baker said
when asked when he thought he
would win his first primary.
The Tennessee senator said
that at this point in the race for
the 1980 Republican presidential
nomination, Ronald Reagan is
the front-runner. Reagan plans to
announce his candidacy Nov. 13.
Baker departed from the
traditional generalities of
presidential announcement
speeches to renew his appeal for
defeat of the SALT II treaty bet-
ween the United States and Soviet
Union, saying that if the Senate
ratified SALT II it would guaran-
tee to the Soviet Union the
margin of error that used to
belong to the United States.
Baker, however, defended his
support of the Panama Canal
treaties last year that angered
Lparty conservatives.
