Greg Saltzman, a Dukakis sup-
porter, said most buttons worn at the
polling site revealed Dukakis and
Jackson supporters. He said the first
Gore button he saw wasn't until al-
most 2 p. m., just two hours before
polls closed.
"I've seen a lot of people with
Jackson buttons," said Peggy
Schultz, a Jackson supporter who
campaigned at South Quad.
BECAUSE a caucus is run by a
party and not the state,
electioneering laws do not apply, and
people are permitted to campaign at
voting sites.
At stake in the caucus were 138
of Michigan's 150 delegates. Ninety
of the delegates were selected at the
district level, and the distribution of
delegates to candidates is based on
percentages. A candidate must re-
ceive at least 15 percent of a popular
vote in a district to receive a dele-

large" delegates, will be committed

Sandiiistas free 100 prisoners
MANAGUA, Nicaragua - The Sandinista government freed 100
political prisoners yesterday under an amnesty program, fulfilling the first
part of a cease-fire pact with Nicaraguan rebels.
Interior Minister Thomas Borge called the gesture "possibly the
beginning of the end of the war."
Tearful family members embrace their loved ones who were released
from the Zona Franca jail on the outskirts of Managua. But amid the joy
was an air of doubt.
"They say I don't have anything to fear," said Felix Pedro Chavaria
Gomez, 32, holding a plastic sack containing his belongings. "I'm
happy, but I hope it doesn't fail."
The release of the prisoners was the first step in an amnesty plan the
Sandinistas agreed to Wednesday when they signed a cease-fire accord with
leaders of U.S.-backed rebels known as Contras.
Israelis kill four Palestinians
MEITHALUN, Occupied West Bank - Israel said its troops shot and
killed three Arabs in the West Bank yesterday after Palestinians attacked
with iron bars and a car, but villagers accused the soldiers of firing at cars
carrying wounded.
Israeli soldiers killed a fourth Palestinian in another West Bank town
while trying to rescue an Israeli tour bus that blundered into the Arab
Left-leaning Labor Party ministers, meanwhile, accused Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir of the rightist Likud block at yesterday's
Cabinet session of exaggerating the success of his U.S. tour that ended
Sunday's deaths raised to 118 the number of Palestinians killed in 15
weeks of violent protests against Israel's 20-year occupation of the West
Bank and Gaza Strip, according to U.N. figures.
House speaker's adviser tried
to sell weapons to Contras
WASHINGTON - An "eyes and ears" adviser to House Speaker Jim
Wright tried to sell weapons to the Contras through Lt. Col. Oliver
North's private network three months before the Iran-Contra disclosures
ended the North operation.
Richard M. Pena, a former House Foreign Affairs Committee staff
member, contacted North associate Richard Miller in 1986 offering
material from two South American companies. One would sell grenades,
bombs and mines, and the other had boots at $33 a pair, according to a
letter proposing the sale.
Such activity would appear at odds with the objectives of Wright, who
has opposed military aid to the Contras and has taken an active role in
efforts to get a negotiated peace agreement between Nicaragua's warring
Strike cripples Soviet city
MOSCOW - The official Soviet press said yesterday most business
halted in a city claimed by Armenians, and dissidents described the
stoppage as a general strike.
The government newspaper Izvestia'said authorities had blocked the
central streets of Stepanakert in the republic of Azerbaijan and that
militiamen were patrolling Saturday.
Armenians began strikes and street rallies Feb. 13 in Stepanakert, the
main city in the region of Nagorno-Karabakh. They have demanded
annexation of the region, about the size of Delaware, to the neighboring
republic of Armenia.
Good Friday brings mass'
confusion for punsters
CHICAGO (AP) - April Fool's Day was the date of the first two
save the pun dinners, but Good Friday falls on April 1 this year, causing
"mass" confusion.
"Instead, the dinner is sharing April 4 with the 'Oh! punning day' of
the Chicago White Sox,"' joked Joyce Heitler, the dinner's organizer.
"We'll have a ball."
Heitler is head of the Chicago chapter of the International Save the
Pun Foundation.
"Why save the pun? Because it's in danger of extinction," she said.
But Heitder made it clear during an interview Saturday that the pun is
still very much alive, at least in her conversation.

"We would have alphabet soup but we didn't want guests groping for
words," she said.
