WASHINGTON (AP) - The Navy
ordered its F-14 fighter jets worldwide
to stop flying for three days after a crash
yesterday in the Persian Gulf, the third
catastrophic loss for the Navy's front-
line fighter in less than a month.
The pilot and radar intercept officer
ejected safely before the crash in the early
morning accident. They were rescued in
the northern gulf by ,
a helicopter from the
carrier USS Nimitz This 11
from which the F-14
was flying, officials mystery
said.
There was no'-
hostile action in- Chief SI
volved, Navy Defense Se
spokesperson Lt.
Cmdr. Kenneth
Ross said, adding
that there was no immediate explana-
tion of what went wrong.
An F-14 crashed Sunday in the Pacific
Ocean; another crashed Jan. 29 in Nash-
ville, Tenn. Ten have gone down in the
past two years and 32 since 1991, a record
at least a little worse than forotherplanes.
"This is a mystery," said Kenneth
Bacon, chief spokesperson for Defense
Secretary William Perry.
Just two days earlier Bacon had said
in response to questions about Sunday's
crash, in which the two crewmen were
killed, that the Navy saw no pattern in

recent F-14 crashes that would call for
special safety precautions.
Each of the last three planes to crash
was based at Miramar Naval Air Station
near San Diego, although they were from
different squadrons. Six ofthe Navy's 13
F-14 squadrons are at Miramar. The oth-
ers arc at Oceana Naval Air Station in
Virginia.
Immediately after
yesterday's acci-
a dent, Adm. Mike
Boorda, chiefofna-
val operations, or-
dered a 72-hour
Cenneth Bacon "stand down"ofthe

retary William planes. In that pe-
Perryriod ateam of Navy
safety and engineer-
ing experts will re-
view the latest crashes in search of
common threads, officials said.
The planes cost $32 million apiece.
Bacon said the F-14s were not being
grounded for a specific mechanical
problem but to allow experts to "wrack
their brains for any explanation, no
matter how farfetched."
The three-day hiatus also allows for a
"period of reflection" for all involved in
F-14 operations, including pilots, main-
tenance people and contractors, to recon-
sider their procedures and search for im-
provements, Bacon said.

Integmation in South
Africa faces boycotts

Rural whites oppose
integration of schools,
mount legal challenge
The Washington Post
POTG IETERSRUS, South Africa-
The all-white primary school here that
has become a symbol of South Africa's
tortured path toward racial integration
in education saw empty classrooms,
youthful tears, adult acrimony and
threats of retribution as black children
yesterday attended their first day of
classes under heavy police guard.
President Nelson Mandela, who has
been attempting with mixed results to
lead his fragile 22-month-old democracy
through the difficult process ofpost-apart-
heid racial reconciliation, intervened in
the dispute by urging both sides to pro-
ceed with sensitivity and caution.
But the integration case in this polar-
ized Northern Province town 150 miles
north of Johannesburg appeared to have
spun out of control as white parents
boycotted the Potgietersrus Primary
School yesterday. The 16 black chil-
dren who attended classes were joined
by only 20 of the 700 white students,
most of whom are Afrikaners.
Although Potgietersrus (pronounced
Pote-HEE-ters-roos) is not the first pub-
lic school to integrate since apartheid
ended in South Africa, the anti-integra-
tion court challenge lodged by white par-
ents is the first maior constitutional test of
the seemingly conflicting rights of equal

access to education and language-spe-
cific education for South Africa's many
ethnic groups, including its small minor-
ity of Afrikaners, who are white descen-
dents ofthe early European settlers. Afri-
kaans-speakers make up 57 percent ofthe
nation's white population, which is only
12 percent of the country's total popula-
tion of 42 million.
The second day of the integration,
dispute began with about 100 police
officers, armored vehicles and police
dogs ringing the school grounds in case
of trouble. The black parents streamed
intotheschool with their children, brav-
ing the angry stares of several Afrikaner
parents who gathered to enforce their
boycott by turning away other white
parents. In interviews, some Afrikaner
parents spoke disparagingly of blacks
and vowed to keep their white children
out of the school.
One white, English-speaking parent,
Sue Skelton, retrieved her daughter from
school at mid-morning. With disgust in
her voice, Skelton said even she had been
madeto feel unwelcomeby theAfrikaners
in what she called "this racist town."
As Stella and Gert Engelbrecht, an
elderly Afrikaner couple, stood at the
school to show moral support to a black
employee who was enrolling his child,an
angry Afrikaner woman burst through
the crowd of reporters and shook her
finger in the Englebrechts' faces, saying
in Afrikaans: "This has got nothing to do
with you because you're not a parent. Get
lost! We'll mark you!"

POOLVILLE, Texas (AP) - Linda
Dixon stood ankle-deep in the ashes
looking for bits and pieces of her life.
She wasn't having much luck.
"There's nothing left. Nothing," she
said, her face ruddy and covered with
soot from digging in 90-degree heat.
Dixon's small wood-frame ranch
house was one of 65 homes destroyed
by raging grass fires that continued to
