The Pentagon denied U.S. war-
planes were flying over Libya, but St-
ate Department spokesman Bernard
Kalk declined to comment on the
possibility of reconli)sance flights.
In Washington. wiitary comman-
ders at the Pentagon are actively in-
vestigating the possibilitv that the F-

aerial raids on Libva may have drop-
ped a bomb off- target after being hit
by anti aircraft fire admnistration
sources said yesterday
The search tor an answer to what
happened to the F 11 has been com-
plicated by incomplete reports
from othet American pilots engaged
in the pre-dawn raid and the inability
of Navy searchers to locate any sign
of the mrissing plane. the sources said.
MF1ANWIJILE, 1Def'ense secretary
Caspar Weinberger said that damage
to the French Embassy and nearby
residences in Tt'ipoli may have been
caused by a bomb from an Air Force
F-111 that failed to return from the at-
tacks on two Libyan cities.
Adm William Crowe. chairmanof
the ,Joint Chiefs of Staff said the sear-
ch for the two missing eewmen had
been called off after Navy planes and
ships failed to find any trace of them
or their plane
"It could have come from the plane
that is missing, "Weinberger said in-
Boston, where he went to deliver two
speeches .We just don't have any
idea. The simple correct answer is,

message broadcast to Libya, warned
this week that the Libyan people must
accept the consequences for allowing
Moamrnmar Khadafy to remain as their
ALTHOUGH the editorial, broad
cast in Arabic and English on four
Voice of America frequencies beamed
at Libya, did not directly advocate a
coup against Khadafy. but it slopp d
just short.
The message told the Libyans that
Khadafy "is a vicious and irrational
man" who has personally issued
threats and orders to carry out at

The broadcast continued. "Colonel
Khadafy is your head of state So long
as Libyans obey his orders, then thv.x

President Reagan praised Iwo ' .S
airmen lost in the raid on Libya as
"heroes of our hearts" yesterday and
said the attack was needed to stop
Moammar Khadafy from sending his
millions "around the world to maim
and murder innocents."
As the administration analyzed
sketchy reports of damage, casualties
and the whereabouts of Khadafy
Reagan portrayed Monday's military
strike as the culmination of a steady
but unsuccessful effort to pressure the
Libyan leader with less severe
'We tried quiet diplomacy. We tried
public condemnation. We tried

'U' officials plan new computer center

It is scheduled to open 16 to 18 mon-
ths after the University Board of
Regents decides on the site, which
could be as early as 1987. After the
regents make a decision it will take
four months to finalize plans, and
about "12 months to build the
bugger," said Deputy Vice Provost
for Information Technology Greg
University Vice President and chief
Financial Officer James Brinkerhoff
recommended the Angell Hall site to
the regents last month, but officials
may also consider the area between
the Natural Resources Building and
Randall Laboratory.
"We're looking for other sites," said
Jack Weidenbach, the University's
director of business operations. "It
will be something around the Diag, so
it will remain open."
DeVarti wins
~request for
vote recount
(Continued from Page 1)
creased that margin this year by 79
IN PRECINCTS where Democrats
ivon last year, this year their winning
margin also decreased, DeVarti said.
In the Democratic 1st Precinct
DeVarti beat Republican Larry Hahn
by 156 votes last year. That margin
decreased to 132 votes this year.
Two of the precincts where DeVarti
is requesting a recount, however, do
not follow this trend. In the 10th
Precinct DeVarti losy by 26 votes last
year, but this year he lost by 31
votes. In the 7th Precinct he lost by
138 votes in 1985. This year he lost by
156 votes.
DeVarti said he held no animosity
toward his opponent, Gerald Jer-
nigan, and was only following up the
possibility of a human error in the
vote counting process.
