he said, although the football season
reates the most sales for the store.
"I'm looking for little bits of
Michigan paraphernalia," said Kelly
Eccleston, an LSA junior.
Borders Book Store has sold a lot
of copies of best sellers, which are


not holiday gift books, such as Tom
Wolfe's Bonfire of Vanities and
Marlo Thomas's Free To Be a
Family. Their gift books include An
Incomplete Education by Judy Jones
and William Wilson, which reviews
what a college graduate is supposed
to know.
Another gift idea at Borders is
One Hundred Flowers, a collection
of artist Georgia O'Keeffe's work
that honors what would have been
her 100th birthday. The book costs
$100, but Borders offers a 10 percent

history can find one at vintage stores
such as Ruby Tabu. Owner Bob
Palmer said this season's biggest
sellers are art deco items, fiestaware

he said.

Compiled from Associated Press reports
Gun found at plane crash site
CAYUCOS, Calif. - Searchers found a gun yesterday in the wreckage
of a jetliner, and FBI officials said flight recordings showed someone en-
tered the cockpit without authorization just before the crash that killed all
43 people aboard.
Hampered by fog and wet ground, 40 searchers going through jet debris
and body parts strewn over the 15-acre site found the gun around 11 a.m.
in two or three inches of mud, FBI agent in charge Richard Bretzing said.
"We have located a weapon," Bretzing told reporters during a news
conference at the site where Pacific Southwest Airlines Flight 1771
crashed Monday on a flight from Los Angeles to San Francisco.
News reports have said that David Burke, fired last month by USAir,
the owner of PSA, may have carried a .44 magnum handgun aboard the
plane seeking revenge against former boss Ray Thomson.
Peruvian pilot survives crash
LIMA, Peru - A navy plane carrying Peru's soccer team crashed into
the ocean off a popular Lima beach, and a crewman was believed to be the
only survivor among 44 people aboard, navy officials said yesterday.
A spokesperson said the survivor pulled from the choppy waters was
believed to be a pilot and was being treated at a military hospital.
He said 12 bodies had been recovered since the plane crashed late Tues-
day night after having trouble with its landing gear and circling the Lima
airport for two hours.
Aboard the twin-turboprop Fokker F-27, owned by the navy and char-
tered by the Alianza Lima professional soccer team, were 28 players, the
team manager, eight team employees and seven crew members, the
spokesperson said.
Nicaraguans question pilot
MANAGUA, Nicaragua - The government interrogated a captured
American for a second day yesterday about his alleged links to U.S.-sup-
ported Contra rebels, an Interior Ministry source said.
The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, refused to say
where James Jordan Denby was being held.
U.S. Embassy spokesperson Lu Falino said yesterday that American
officials still had no word on when they could see Denby or where he was
"We're still in the same situation," he said.
Defense Minister Humberto Ortega said Tuesday the embassy would be
given access to Denby "at the appropriate time," but did not say when
that would be.
Nicaragua's two pro-government newspapers splashed news of the cap-
ture in front-page headlines.
FBI searches for suspects in
Mich. armored van robbery
BATTLE CREEK - The FBI and police are concentrating their search
in the Battle. Creek area for two men suspected of stealing more than
$500,000 in an armored van roibbery, police said.
There were no injuries in yesterday's robbery outside a Battle Creek
bank, though one of the guards in the Wolverine Dispatch Van was brief-
ly taken hostage, said Capt. Chester Keeton of the battle Creek Police
Police are uncertain of the exact amount.stolen because the van made
previous stops, though they said it was more than $500,000.
Investigators are searching for two men who fled in a car after robbing
the van, Keeton said.
Teachers in Texas torture
tots by taking away TV
WHITE SETTLEMENT, Texas - More than a week without
television was like a day without sunshine for some fifth-graders when
their teacher pulled the plug to stimulate their creativity and get them
interested in other things.
As a result of the experiment, the pupils became more attentive in
class, handed in unprecedented numbers of extra-credit assignments,
romped outdoors, and rediscovered household pets, said teacher Lisa
Family members also had been asked to participate. Students noted
their experience in a journal, revealing siblings fought more and one
mother stormed out of the house while her husband guarded the tube and

turned up the volume.
Six children decided not to join their classmates. "I'd rather not
torture myself," said 11-year old Quentin Solomon. "I'm just hooked
on it."
