Libyan pilot offers to form suicide squad.

LONDON (UPI) - Police said yesterday they
were investigating reports that at least one of
some 20 Libyans training at a private British
flying school had volunteered to form "suicide
squads against America."
The offer was made Friday in a telephone call to
a radio station in theLibyan capital, Tripoli, ac-
cording to the BBC's monitoring service in
England, which tunes in to the world's airwaves.
"We...are prepared to become suicide squads
against America and its arrogance," said the
caller, who said he spoke for "the revolutionary
force at Oxford Aerodrome, Britain."
"We will hit with an iron fist anyone like dirty
Reagan who contemplates aggression," the caller
was quoted by BBC monitors. "Revolutionary

struggle continues forever."
Police said they were alerted to the broadcast
by the BBC and were investigating. "We are
looking into it and senior officers are being up-
dated," a Thames valley police spokesman said.
Libyan leader Moammar Khaddafy called on
Libyans last week to form suicide squads to strike
at American targets in retaliation for U.S. attacks
in the Gulf of Sidra during a dispute over
Khadafy's claim to jurisdiction over the water-
Oxford Air Training School, Europe's largest
private air training establishment, has about 20
Libyan students and is located within easy flying
distance of U.S. air bases at Upper Heyford and
Greenham Common, where cruise missiles are

But training school staff said security
precautions would prevent any of the trainee
pilots from smuggling explosives into the school's
light training aircraft for a bombing mission
against one of the bases.
The Sunday Times interviewed a Libyan student
it identified as having made the call, Adil Masood
who has been at the school for two years and is
allowed to fly solo.
Masood told the newspaper that he and his
colleagues would not attack any American targets
in Britain but said they were prepared to do
"whatever we are instructed to do," even if it
meant "going on a suicide mission to the U.S."


Forecasts: Job opportunities, salaries to rise

Job opportunities for the class of
1986 will increase by 1.5 to 2 percent,
according to two recent job forecasts.
Salaries will also rise, one of the
reports predicted. Starting salaries in
all fields, which rose 6.5 percent last
year, will continue to rise another 1.8
percent this year.
THE Northwestern-Endicott

Report, a survey of 250 businesses
and college recruiters, and the
Michigan State University Report, a
survey of 710 businesses, government
agencies, and educational in-
stitutions, predict that the greatest
amount of growth will occur in the
small and medium sized firms, with
the most growth occurring in the ser-
vice industry. Typical service in-

dustries include retailing, health
care, transportation, public utilities,
finance, and real estate.
The MSU report also predicts
growth in electrical engineering,
computers, mechanical engineering,
and accounting. A few fields, such as
banking, finance, and insurance will
suffer declines in opportunities.
While both reports state that em-
ployers look for responsibility,
maturity, perseverence, neatness,
and self-pride in all job applicants,
Deborah Orr May, director of Career
Planning and Placement at the
University, said that liberal arts

majors must put in more research,
than, for example, engineering
students, to find jobs.
REGARDLESS of their major,
liberal arts graduates must com-
municate effectively, write clearly,
and present their skills articulately,
May said.
Students should research several
fields, talk to alumni, and cultivate
experience and connections through
summer jobs, internships, and job
training programs. The Northwestern
Endicott report states that 82 percent
of the surveyed recruiters believe
that students with work experience
interview better and make more solid
career choices.
Recruiters opinions differ on the
importance of their applicants'
grades. "Too many factors affect
grades," according to the North-
western-Endicott report. "The ability
to take exams doesn't necessarily
equate with leadership, integrity,
motivations, and interpersonal skills
it takes to succeed."
OTHER recruiters disagree,
saying that grades indicate how well
an applicant can compete with his
peers. If "students succeed versus
their peers, they will succeeed versus
the competition, too," the report con-

Filipinos stop air base strike
CLARK AIR BASE, Philippines - Hundreds of barmaids and taxi
drivers, furious over lost business, routed Filipino workers blockading
the U.S. Clark Air Base yesterday and tore down barricades the pickets
had built.
Filipino police fired pistols into the air to break up the 20-minute melee
in which at least four people were injured, including one man who lost a
front tooth when a rock hit him in the mouth.
After the 150 strikers on the barricades fled, the hostesses and taxicab
and passenger jeep drivers ripped out the workers' sound system,
smashed the windows of a pick-up truck, broke chairs and set fire to a
tarpaulin the pickets used as a tent.
They then cheered U.S. military personnel who returned to the base af-
ter being stranded outside by the 9-day-old strike. About 22,000 Filipino
civilian workers represented by a union federation are demanding higher
severance pay from Clark, Subic Naval Base and six smaller U.S. bases.
Officials said clubs, restaurants and local transport around Clark,
Subic and the other bases have lost about $1 million worth of business sin-
ce the strike began.
Koreans protest dictatorship
KWANGJU, South Korea - Some 80,000 people demanding con-
stitutional reform marched through the streets of Kwangju yesterday
chanting "down with dictatorship" in the largest anti-government rally
since President Chun Doo Hwan came to power six years ago.
Thousands of plainclothes and uniformed policemen stood by as the
protesters marched through South Korea's fifth largest city in a demon-
stration called to back demands for a constitutional revision to permit
direct election of the president.
About 500 youths remained behind the marchers to confront riot police
but were dispersed with tear gas shortly after midnight. There was no
immediate report of arrests or injuries.
The rally in Kwangju, 170 miles south of Seoul, was the third and
largest of its kind, following a gathering that drew 1,500 people in Seoul
and another that attracted about 10,000 a week ago in Pusan, Korea's
second largest city.
Soviets report U.S. rejection
MOSCOW - The official news agency Tass yesterday reported
the United States has rejected Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev's call for
a meeting with President Reagan in Europe to discuss ending nuclear
Earlier in the day, the Communist Party daily newspaper Pravda ac-
cused the White House of "dispelling the spirit of Geneva" by what it said
were U.S. attempts to create new regional disputes.
On Saturday, Gorbachev challenged Reagan to meet him "in the
nearest future" in Europe to discuss banning nuclear tests, and did not
mention a planned superpower summit to be held in the United States this
The White House issued a statement after Gorbachev's speech saying
Reagan believes superpower summits "should deal with the entire range
of important issues between our two countries."
The statement added that Reagan hoped Gorbachev would reply soon
to the U.S. suggestion that a summit be held in the United States in June.
The U.S. statement did not explicity reject Gorbachev's proposal, but it
said if the Soviet Union "desires to make serious progress on the queston
of nuclear testing limitation, it should accept the president's longstanding
proposal that we have our experts meet.and should respond positively to
the president's most recent offer."
Ortega calls attacks defensive
WASHINGTON - Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega said Sunday
that attacks by government troops on rebel base camps in Honduras were
"totally defensive operations."
Ortega also said he was willing to negotiate with the United States and
"the chief of the Contras, which is President Reagan," but he refused to
say whether his government would meet U.S. demands to negotiate with
rebel leaders.
Appearing on the CBS program "Face The Nation," the Nicaraguan
president said, "We have not invaded Honduras. We have not committed
any act of aggression against Honduras."
Ortega earlier justified last week's border incursion 'against rebel
bases, calling the rugged area between the two countries a "war zone,"
where Honduras had given up its sovereignty by allowing the rebels to
control and operate from the region.
He said military actions in the border area "have been taking place for
years now all along the frontier area to attack the counterrevolutionary
forces which...have their bases in Honduras. They are totally defensive
Inmates seize fellow prisoner
BUFFALO, N.Y. - Three jail inmates demanding an airplane to Libya
tied a screaming prisoner spread-eagle to a cell door, slashed him with a
homemade spear and beat him before guards ended a four-hour siege, of-
ficials said yesterday.
But before the guards regained control at about 4:30 a.m. yesterday,
the inmates demanded and received television coverage and were
allowed to speak to Buffalo Common Council President George Arthur
about conditions in the aging Erie County Holding Center.
"These guys weren't playing games," said sheriff's Sgt. Richard Dob-
son, who drew his gun and forced the inmates to surrender. "We really

firmly believed that they would kill the inmate."
Prisoners Donald Simmons, 20, Herman Cruz, 28, and Ivan Veras, 21,
took fellow inmate Robert Jordon, 29, hostage in a second-floor cell block
shortly after midnight.
Jordon, apparently picked at random, was tied spread-eagle to a cell
door and was beaten with a mop handle and slashed with a spear
fashioned of glass from a broken television set during more than four
hours of negotiations.
