TOKYO (UPI) - An army private
ran~ amok yesterday, wounding four
ellow trainees with a burst of
automatic fire; and an amphibious
plane crashed on a training mission,
killing three crewmen and leaving 10
others missing, officials said.
The two incidents, described by
Japan's public television network,
MHK, as "shocking," triggered an
uproar in a country that is very wary
about Prime Minister Yasuhiro
Nakasone's attempt to build up its

Hollings, hoping to replace Glenn as
the candidate of the conservative and

"Open hearings will occur, and fur-
