HAR T. MONDALE DEBA TE FOREIGN POLICY
Dems seek N.Y.
From the Associated Press
Four days before the New York
primary, Walter Mondale and Gary
Hart debated foreign policy in separate
appearances before the same group
yesterday, while the Rev. Jesse
Jackson accused his Democratic
presidential rivals of "benign neglect"
of black voters.
"It could not be more clear that
Walter Mondale and Gary Hart would
prefer to pretend that you and I do not
exist," Jackson told a predominantly
black crowd at his headquarters in
"IT'S A fundamental issue of benign
neglect. They must be challenged to
speak to the issues."
Jackson made his charge as Mondale
conceded the mood has soured in the
race for the Democratic presidential
nomination. But he said the sharp ex-
changes between him and Hart have
been over issues, not personal matters.
Some of the differences were evident
as Hart and then Mondale addressed
the New York Foreign Policy
HART TOLD the group U.S. military
aid to Central American nations should
be replaced with economic assistance
providing "simple but sweeping social
projects with measurable effec-
tiveness." He cited water and
sanitation systems as examples.
The Colorado senator has called for
the withdrawal of all American
military forces in Honduras, where
they are in training exercises. But
Mondale said that for Hart "outhistory
would appear to begin, and, too often,
end with Vietnam."
He declared that the lesson of Viet-
nam is not that presidents should forego
the use of American military power
everywhere, "but that it should be
exercised for peace, mindful of regional
history, and fully understood and sup-
ported by the American people."
ALL THREE men campaigned in
New York City as public opinion polls
indicated Mondale led Hart in the Em-
pire State. There are 252 delegates at
stake in the primary Tuesday, the
biggest prize so far in the Democratic
Although most labor leaders are
working for Mondale, President
Reagan showed yesterday that he still
has appeal among blue-collar workers
by winning the endorsement of some of-
ficials from New York.
Reagan met briefly with the leaders
of 18 building and construction trade
union locals in the metropolitan area. A
spokesman for the group told reporters
afterward the union officials would
work for Reagan because "the
president turned the economy around"
and more jobs would be created as a
The spokesman, Frederick Devine of
Local 1456 of the dockbuilders union,
said he had "no idea" whether the
group's break with the national AFL-
CIO leadership would cause problems
for their locals.
Robert Georgine, president of the
AFL-CIO's Building and Construction
Trades Department, said through a
spokesman: "There's no group
representing the New York building
trades or any council in New York.
... debates over issues, not personalities
Nobody has checked with this office,
and I don't know what's going on .. .
they speak only for themselves, not for
The AFL-CIO and its president, Lane
Kirkland, have been actively' cam-
paigning for Mondale in the race for the
Democratic presidential nomination.
Reagan's relations with the giant labor
federation have been in eclipse since
before he took office.
During the 1980 campaign, Reagan
picked up the endorsements of
relatively few unions, including the
Teamsters, which make up the nation's
largest independent labor organization.

Jackson loses bid for delegates
LANSING, Mich. (UPI) - State Democratic Chairman
Rick Wiener has told backers of Jesse Jackson he will not
convene a meeting to discuss the redistribution of Michigan's
national convention of delegates.
In a letter sent late this week to Joel Ferguson, chairman
of the Jackson campaign in Michigan, Wiener said it would
be improper for him to get involved in any deviation from the
FERGUSON had no immediate comment.
But the Lansing businessman said he does not plan to let
the matter drop. He has -said in the past that a credentials
fight at the national convention is an option.
Last week, Ferguson argued that the current allocation of
delegates resulting from the state's March 17 caucuses is not
fair to Jackson.
HE SAID Walter Mondale and U.S. Sen. Gary Hart should
surrender to Jackson a total of 13 delegates and asked Wiener
to convene a meeting of the thtee campaigns to discuss the
Jackson received 16.3 percent of the vote compared with
31.4 percent for Hart and 49.2 percent for Mondale.
Despite this, he received only nine of the 136 delegates up
for grabs, about 6.6 percent. Mondale received 78 and Hart
JACKSON ran afoul of a rule which requires that a
candidate receive 20 percent of the vote in any given
congressional district in order to qualify for any of the
delegates allocated to that district. In addition, candidates
must win 20 percent of the 93 delegates allocated among the
districts in order to qualify for any at-large delegates.
The Jackson campaign fought that rule, and others, in an
unsuccessful federal lawsuit.
Ferguson has warned that it will be difficult to stir
enthusiasm for the Democratic ticket in black communities
this fall if minority voters believe Jackson was cheated.
But Mondale and Hart backers have been cool to
"I have written to Joel a letter indicating my job is to
provide for the implementation of ... the delegate allocation
determined by 135,000 Democrats on March 17 and (that) for
me to call a meeting for the purpose of discussing deviation
from that would be improper," Wiener said yesterday.

Lava threat eases in Hawaii }
HILO, Hawaii - The threat to Hawaii's second-largest city from the
eruption of Mauna Loa eased yesterday, with a new finger of lava diverting
some of the volcano's molten flow over uninhabited land, officials said.
Meanwhile, the island's second volcano, Kilauea, resumed its intermittent
eruption, marking the first time since 1868 that the two erupte
Officials flying over the area early yesterday sighted the new stream of
lava from Mauna Loa about three miles behind the front of a 13-mile-long
flow. The wall of lava has descended the mountainside to about five miles
from the nearest home in the upper Kaumana area of Hilo, which has a
population of 40,000.
The new finger of molten rock is "more favorable, because it's farther up
the flow," said Bill Takaba, a Hawaii County Civil Defense volunteer. "It
relieves pressure at the front."
The new flow was headed north over uninhabited land, away from Hilo:'s

Congress approves extension
for bankruptcy court system
WASHINGTON - Congress yesterday approved a one-month extension of
the nation's bankruptcy court system, one day before its scheduled ex-
piration, but legislation for a permanent system continued to be stymied by
disputes over new judgeships and labor contracts.
The Senate passed the extension 78-0 and the House approved similar
language by voice vote. The two versions differed slightly, but the Senate
agreed to accept the House language and send the measure to President'
The temporary bill would keep the courts, with jurisdiction over some $93
billion in assets daily, in business until April 3. By then, it is hoped member
of both houses could resolve differences that have generated intense lob-
bying by competing special interests.
The crisis was generated by a 1982 Supreme Courtruling that the bankrup:,?
tcy courts were run unconstitutionally. The Judicial Conference, a board ot
directors for federal courts, passed a temporary rule for the courts to stay in..
business through today.
The Supreme Court said the bankruptcy judges had assumed the powers of
other federal judges but were not given the same constitutional protections
- such as lifetime terms of office.
New York crime boss indicted . -
NEW YORK - "Big Paul" Castellano, reputed boss of one of the nation's
most powerful organized crime networks, was named in an indictment
yesterday as leader of a ring that murdered 25 people and engaged in
bribery, drug trafficking, loansharking, prostitution and car theft.
Twenty other people were indicted in the probe, which stemmed from
evidence uncovered by a police auto theft unit.
Castellano, 68, of Staten Island, was indicted on 26 counts and was iden
tified as leader of a racketeering " crew." Law enforcement officials have
testified before congressional committees that Castellano succeeded Carlo
Gambino, his late'cousin and brother-in-law, as leader of the largest crime
family in the Mafia.
Investigators have testified before Congress that the Gambino mob has

Poland's crucifix debate heats up
GARWOLIN, Poland - Distraught parepts .accused Communist
authorities yesterday of blacklisting their children from schools in a cam-
paign to crush Poland's crucifix crusade.
No compromise was in sight as the three-week confrontation between
church and state over a ban on crosses in public buildings deepened.
The country's 80 Roman Catholic bishops signaled their determination to
stand firm, declaring that the crucifix should hang "where the believers

"pigheaded" officials on the third day of his bread-and-water fast protesting
the government's stance.
Mazur, celebrating Mass for some 1,800 worshipers at the Church of the
Transfiguration in Garwolin, said a solution must come from someone "with:
better perception than those pigheaded ones who want to teach us
something. What? Hatred?"
New flu vaccine proven effective
WASHINGTON - An experimental influenz'avaccine given in the form of
nose drops instead of painful injections has proved effective in protecting
people against the viral disease that plagues millions of people every year
with aches and sneezes, doctors reported yesterday.
The new vaccine, which contains a weakened live virus instead of the dead
ones used in standard shots, also may lessen the spread of flu viruses and
reduce the chances of epidemics, they said.
The researchers, reporting their results in the British medical journal
Lancet, said the experimental vaccine is ready for large-scale human trials
as the next step toward approval for general use.
Drs. Mary Lou Clements of the University of Maryland Medical School in
Baltimore, Robert Betts of the University of Rochester Medical Center in
New York and Brian Murphy of the National Institutes of Health said the
vaccine appears to be safe and effective when used on healthy, young volun-

current RSG President Richard Luker,
Ganter, and Buerger had formed a
"conspiracy" to incriminate him of
violating campaign rules.
He denied that he was handing out
campaign pamphlets and said that the
complaining students were lying.
Abili charged that Luker and Buerger
were influencing voters near a booth in
the LSA Building.
"THEY WERE influencing the voters
and telling them that they should vote
for Gantner," Abili said last night.
He said that Luker should not be
allowed near the voting booths because
he is the current president of RSG.
The results of yesterday's elections
are being held by RSG's election com-
mittee until all the complaints can be
heard. If Abili is found to be in violation
of the election rules, the issue will go to
the RSG council for a decision on
whether Abili will be disqualified.
