Five killed in Mo. plane crash
INDEPENDENCE, Mo. - A military plane and a private plane
collided over the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant yesterday, killing "
all five people aboard, authorities said.
The crash, which occurred about 12:30 p.m. over the plant east of
Kansas City, involved a U-21 fixed-wing military plane headed for Fort
Leavenworth, Kan., said Lt. Col. John Garlinger, public affairs officer
at Fort Leavenworth.
The civilian plane was a Piper Navajo, he said.
There were believed to be three people aboard the military plane and
two aboard the private plane, Garlinger said. Each plane can seat up to
Inmates say they flew arms;

MIAMI - Two federal inmates say they flew arms to the
Nicaraguan Contra rebels and drugs back to the United States with the
knowledge of the CIA and the Drug Enforcement Administration. "It
was guns down, cocaine back," one inmate said.
A spokeswoman for the CIA denied the charge yesterday, as have a
DEA spokesman and two top leaders of the Contras fighting
Nicaragua's leftist Sandinista government.
Jorge "George" Morales Garcia is scheduled for trial Monday on
charges of cocaine smuggling; Gary Betzner, the second inmate, flew'
two missions for Morales and is serving a sentence for cocaine
smuggling and facing attempted escape charges.

U.. may let dollar value fall
WASHINGTON - Treasury Secretary James Baker will meet today
with the finance ministers of Canada and Japan to discuss monetary
issues, but there was little indication that the Reagan administration is
ready to join in steps to ease the dollar's sharp fall.
Administration officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity,
said yesterday that despite the recent plunge in the dollar - which this
week brought the currency'*to a new post-World War II low against the
Japanese yen - Baker seems content to allow the dollar to continue
falling with market pressures.
That's because a lower dollar should eventually begin to ease this
nation's trade deficit, estimated at a record $173 billion last year.

ultimate local issue."
Other speakers criticized the
administration's cutback in local
and state programs to finance a
huge defense build-up.
Rev. Robert Wallace said the
city is "severely handicapped by the
redirecting of funds from where they
ought to be - in local issues."
Wallace, who heads the Ann Arbor
Shelter Association, said funds to
aid the homeless and provide
affordable housing are more
important than military spending.

Three Stooges wax acting
greats in popularity contest
BUENA PARK, Calif. - The Three Stooges beat the Barrymores
in a popularity contest at the Movieland wax Museum, and visitors
are also asking to see Don Johnson and Michael J. Fox done in wax.
"We think The Three Stooges are really having a revival with
young people now," said Terry Thrift, marketing director for the
"They're on TV all weekend. But who ever sees the Barrymores?"
The museum, acting on results of questionaires from visitors, is
removing lionel, Ethel, and John Barrymore as well as the "Laugh-In"
comedy team of Dan Rowan and Dick Martin, Thrift said Monday.
"We've got Mel Gibson as 'Mad Max' set for February, Jonathon
Winters from the film 'It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World' in March
and The Three Stooges in April," he said.
Visitors want Johnson and Fox added to the collection, Thrift said.
He said the museum must first obtain their permission.
