'The Day
FRANKFURT, West Germany (AP) -
Some critics said the film was poorly
made and badly acted, a "nuclear soap
opera." But it hasn't mattered to West
German audiences, who are flocking to
theaters around the country to see "The
Day After," the U.S. made-for-
television movie about a nuclear war
,triggered in Germany.
At least 250,000 people saw the film
during the first four days of its release,
said Patricia Wiedenhoest,
spokeswoman for the West German
distributors, Tobis. The movie, which
opened Dec. 2, is showing in 100
theaters. The film was shown on
television in the United States on Nov.
"INTEREST IN the film is extremely
high . .. much more than we expected,"
she said. "We have ordered 35 copies
more because of the high interest."
-Tobis, which paid $1 million for the
West German movie, video, and
television distribution rights, has
shrugged off some critics' charges that
it is profiting from "scare tactics" in
the film.
West German audiences, however,
seem generally impressed by the film,
which focuses on the town of Lawrence,
Kan., following a nuclear exchange
between the United States and the
Soviet Union.
THE 500-SEAT Europa Palast in
downtown Frankfurt is filling the house
at nearly every showing, said
spokeswoman Doris Amthor.
"We've been showing the film five
times a day for the past four days, and
the house is usually full," Amthor said.
Moviegoers seemed subdued and
shocked after a midday screening
Tuesday at the theater.
PETRA NEUHAUS, a 17-year-old
dentral assistant, commented, "When
nothing is left - no doctors, no
medicine - no one can help."

MADRID, Spain - An Iberia
Airlines Boeing 727 slammed into a DC-
9 which crossed in front of it yesterday,
setting the jets ablaze and killing 92
people in Madrid's second jet disaster
in 10 days.
Authorities said the smaller Aviaco
airlines jet was preparing to take off on
a domestic flight when it apparently
wandered, blinded by the fog, onto the
wrong section of the runway.
CARLOS Espinosa, president of the
two state-owned Spanish airlines, said
all 42 people on the DC-9 were killed and
Iberia said in a communique that 50 of
the 98 people on Flight 350 to Rome
died. One unidentified man was repor-
ted in critical condition..
The Iberia jet's pilot, Juan Carlos.
Lopez Barranco, crawled from the
damaged cockpit, helped out two other
survivors and shouted repeatedly." The
runway was mine."
Thomas Goltz, 39, a Madrid resident
who comes from El Paso, Texas, and
his wife Sydney, 32, were seated in the
back of the Iberia plane and survived
the crash with minor bruises. Goltz,
manager of the Singer Co. in Madrid,
said neither plane should have been
allowed to leave the airport.
"IT (THE 727) was just about to take
off when we heard this big crunching
sound of metal. The plane sort of broke

up in pieces and smoke started to fill.
the cabin," Goltz said.
"A crew member 'was struggling to
get the back door open. I grabbed my
wife and jumped out when the door was
open and we ran. We found ourselves in
a sort of field with the co-pilot and a
badly burned man. We wandered
around in the fog for about 15 minutes
and finally were picked up by some
people in a jeep."
The morning crash came just 10 days
after a Colombian Boeing 747 crashed
into a field less than a mile from
Madrid's Barajas airport runway;
killing 181 of 192 people aboard.
FOG AT the collision site - a
gruesome scene of charred flesh,
smoldering fuselage and strewn
luggage - was so thick that one plane's
wreckage could not be seen from the
other. Minutes after the acident, the
planes were burning, and rescue
workers pulled bodies and the injured
from the wreckage.
Among the passengers aboard the
Iberia jet were Spaniards, Italians and
about 40 Japanese tourists going to
Rome, including three honeymoon
Mexican actress Fanny Cano also was
aboard the Iberia jet and feared dead.

Bowl tour packages just haven't sold to students as well as
Though game ticket sales have been high, salespersons for
Conlin Travel - which handled the University Sugar Bowl
Tours - say they have sold only a fraction of packaged tours
ACCORDING TO Conlin salesperson Nancy Griffin, the
agency sold only about 130 packages by the deadline last
Friday, and only 50 of them to students. She said Conlin
managers expected to sell about 300 tours.
The various packages all include transportation to and from
New Orleans, lodging, and a game ticket. Steve Conlin of
Conlin Travel said he was disappointed in the low sales.
"The price is right. The product apparently just did not ap-
peal to the student market," Conlin said. "The days have

gone by when students can really afford a bowl."
HE ADDED that if the Wolverines were headed for another
location - Florida, for instance - the tour packages would
have sold better.
Conlin said the agency will lose some money because of the
'ost' of advertising and promotion, but added that they can
still cancel contracts with hotels and bus lines without being
Alumni Association tours, which Conlin also handled, have
been much more popular. About 800 people have signed up
for the more extravagant package, which includes a cocktail
party before the game, a New Year's Eve party, a city tour,
and a plantation tour in addition to transportation, lodging,
and a game ticket.
BETTY WIKEL of the Alumni Association said anyone can
buy these packages, "but we prefer alumni." Wikel said to-

Syria released the body of U.S. Navy pilot Lt. Mark Lange
yesterday but said the return of American prisoner Robert
Goodman depended on relations with the United States.
Lange, a 27-year-old former resident of Fraser, Michigan,
was shot down in his A-6 fighter-bomber Sunday in an attack
on Syrian positions in Lebanon's central mountains. The
Syrians handed his body over to the Lebanese army who in
turn delivered it to the Marines.
SYRIA'S STATE ministersfor foreign affairs, Farouk
Charaa, told a news conference in Damascus that Goodman,
26, of Virginia Beach, Va., Lange's bombardier-navigator,
was considered "a prisoner of war."
"He is well-treated in accordance with international
rules," Charaa said. Goodman was captured after he bailed
out of the plane Sunday.
Charaa said the conditions for releasing Goodman, the first
