PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) - The
Rev. Jesse Jackson got an enthusiastic
welcome in Lt. Robert Goodman Jr.'s
hometown yesterday as the Democratic
presidential hopeful said his successful
efforts to win Goodman's freedom from
Syria may eventually lead to the with-
drawal of U.S. troops from Lebanon.
But Jackson's trip was not the trium-
phant event his campaign had hoped,
for Goodman himself was not on the
stage with Jackson as had once been
THE NAVY FLIER was due to arrive
here, the town where he grew up, late
today. Pentagon officials said earlier
that the Navy aviator could not as a
serviceman appear at a political rally.
But Jackson went to the Portsmouth
Senior High School - where Goodman
graduated in 1974 - anyway. He turned
what was going to be a "welcome home
ceremony" for Goodman with city and
state officials into a campaign rally,
and he was cheered repeatedly by the
crowd of about 300 people.
Jackson said little about Goodman's
failure to appear, except that "there
has been a lot of confusion about the

he made Friday that he had asked
Goodman to avoid anything that would
look like a political payoff to Jackson
for his efforts that won the flier's
But Jackson said his mission to the
Middle East may have started a
dialogue that eventually could lead to
the withdrawal of U.S. troops from
"God has given Goodman a second
chance. He has given us a chance, and
now we have to give peace a chance,"
"WHAT BEGAN IN a Syrian jail last
week can eventually bring all our
troops out of Lebanon," he added.
Jackson has said that his Syrian
mission helped open communication
between the Syrian and U.S. gover-
nments where, he said, there has been
Jackson was asked whether he would
accept the vice presidential nomination
if former Vice President Walter Mon-
dale won the presidential nomination.
Jackson said he couldn't answer the
question, but he added: "Maybe Mon-
dale should be vice president. He's had
a lot of experience at it. In fact he's one
of our better vice presidents."
NO CITY OFFICIALS were present
for the rally, held in the school
auditorium. Portsmouth city officials
said they planned another welcoming
ceremony Monday at the school - this
time with Goodman present.
Jackson earlier voiced anger at Pen-
tagon officials for questioning whether
the flier should attend the event in his
"We did not take him out of a Syrian
prison to put him under house arrest in
America," Jackson said.
A Navy spokesman denied that
Goodman had,(been ordered not to at-
tend the rally.
"To my knowledge, the Navy has not
told Lt. Goodman he cannot appear,"
Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Gene
Sands said. But Sands noted that
military regulations prohibit political
campaigning by members of the armed
Goodman told reporters Friday that
he could not campaign for Jackson
because of his military commitment
and that Jackson would not allow him to
do anything to jeopardize his career.

structure for Lebanon are resolved.

conduct in Lebanon indicates that it will
avoid a direct challenge to Israel and
that it will restrain Palestinian
guerrilla forces under its control. The

MEANWHILE, in Damascus, a
spokesman for Walid Jumblatt denied
reports the Druze Moslem leader had
refused to discuss the Saudi-mediated
Lebanese security plan aimed at ending
the factional fighting in Beirut.
The spokesman said Jumblatt, Shiite
Moslem militia leader Nabih Berri and
Saudi mediator Rafic Hariri reviewed
the plan yesterday in Damascus.
The foreign ministers of Lebanon,
Syria and Saudi Arabia were scheduled
to meet today in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia,
to discuss the plan - which calls for the
Christian-led army to take over some
areas controlled by private militias.
LEBANESE leaders said the meeting
of foreign .ministers was called to
discuss "sticking points" in the plan.

around the capital were calm after a
five-hour-long factional battle, but

Trial set in MSU rape case
LANSING - Seven men accused of gang raping a female Michigan State
University student will go to trial March 5 following an unsuccessful appeal
by their attorneys.
The men's accusor claims she was raped nine times after going to a dor-
mitory room party on Nov. 21, 1982.
At the time, six of the seven men were students at Michigan State Univer-
sity and the other at nearby Ferris State College.
An East Lansing district judge dismissed the charges, saying the young
woman had not tried to escape or protect herself.
That controversial decision was overturned last Sept. 29, by Ingham Coun-
ty Circuit Judge James Giddings.
Defense attorneys appealed that ruling to the Michigan Court of Appeals but
Atari owner takes huge losses
NEW YORK (AP) - Warner Communications Inc., the nation's biggest
entertainment conglomerate, has just wound up the worst year in its
history: 12 months of whopping losses, widespread layoffs and major
upheavals in management.
"We've had a really h Tible year," concedes Robert Rolontz, director of
information for Warner, Who isn't saying much else, except that no
executives would be made available for interviews.
The company lost $122.4 million in the third quarter, compared to a profit
of $78.7 million in the same period of 1982. The company said an operating
loss of $180 million at its Atari subsidiary erased a 32 percent gain in the
company's other segments.
Analysts say Warner's problems resulted from growing too big too fast
Atari, which had fueled Warner's rapid growth, was clobbered when the
home video game market suddenly ran out of steam.
Foreign ministers study new
Central American peace plans
PANAMA CITY, Panama - Foreign ministers of Contadora group and
Central American countries gathered yesterday to discuss a peace plan at a
time when the region is more troubled than at the start of the peace effort a
Although progress in the talks has been glacially slow, the effort by the
Contadora group - Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela and Panama - is the only
widely seen hope for a peaceful settlement of Central America's conflicts
and has kept the opposing sides talking.
The officials are to discuss a plan submitted two weeks ago on how to carry
out the Contadora process, emphasizing demilitarization of the region.
In addition, four of the five Central American nations are to present a
proposal that emphasizes elections.
That plan, sponsored by El Salvador, Guatemala, Costa Rica and Hon-
duras, was announced Friday night by Honduran Foreign Minister Edgardo
Yesterday, Foreign Minister D'Escoto of Nicaragua - the only
Central American nation not party to the plan - called it "a rejection" of the

some parts of it "will have tobe fixed," but did not say what Nicaragua's ob-
Journalist returns to Argentina
after four-year exile in Israel
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina - Journalist Jacobo Timerman returned home
from four years of exile in Israel yesterday to help convict "lunatic
criminals" such as the officers who tortured him during 30 months of deten-
tion under military rule.
"It is my duty to put myself at the service of human rights," ther former
newspaper publisher, 61, said at an airport news conference.
''He detailed his imprisonment and torture in hisbest-selling .Prisoner
without a Name, Cell without a Number," in which he said he was arrested
and prosecuted mainly because he was a Jew. He described his captors as
Timerman was released from prison in September 1979 in response to an
international outcry, stripped of his Argentine citizenship and exiled to
Peace Corp head taped deputy
WASHINGTON (AP) - Peace Corps Director Loret Ruppe was ignorant
of department policy when she secretly taped a conversation between her-
self and her deputy last summer, a Peace Corps spokesman said yesterday.
Ruppe, the wife of former Rep. Philip Ruppe (R-Mich.), taped a July 12
meeting she had with her deputy, Edward Curran, said spokesman Stanley
"Ruppe regrets anything that casts any negative light on the good work of
the Peace Corps," Schrager said. "She was ignorant of agency policy on the
matter and intended that the tapes be used as a management tool.
"A single taping occurence took place last July as Ruppe was leaving the
country for an extended time and felt it advisable to ensure a record of the
final meeting with her deputy prior to her departure," Shrager said.
According to The Washington Post, Ruppe apparently was trying to trap
Curran into making embarrassing or disloyal statements that she could use
to convince the White House that he should be fired.
Schrager .conceded that there had been difficulties between Ruppe and
Curran, adding they were trying to work out their personality differences.
"We don't deny that there's friction between the two," Schrager said.
