Fiery air and sea battles erupted in
the Persian Gulf yesterday with Iraq
claiming it destroyed five "Large naval
targets" and ahot down three Iranian
warjeta in a pre-dawn attack on an
Iranian convoy, the Iraqi News Agency
The fighting raged for more than two
hours at the Khor Mousa channel
leading to the Iranian port of Bandar
Khomeini, the official Iraqi News
Agency reported.
THERE WAS no immediate com-
ment from Iran and Lloyds of London,
the world's foremost ship insurer, said
they had not received any reports of the
battle, about 30 miles east of the Iran-
Iraq border.
Iraq said the fight erupted when an
Iraqi reconnaissance aircraft spotted
an "enemy convoy" with Iranian air
cover steaming up the 20-mile-long
channel at the northern end of the Gulf,
heading toward Bandar Khomeini.
The Iraqi reports did not indicate the
nationality of the "naval targets" in the
convoy. Both Iranian and foreigh
vessels carry supplies for Iran to Ban-
4 dar Khomeini.
"IN A dogfight, the warplanes of the
Iraqi air force shot down three enemy F-
14 jets which crashed in flames into the
waters of the Gulf." INR said in a
dispatch monitored in Beirut.
The report climaxed a week in which
Iraq claimed three attacks on targets
near Iran's major oil terminal at Kharg
Island in its effort to blockade Iran's oil
exports and force an end to the war that
began in September 1980. Kharg is
about 100 miles south of the site of
yesterday's battle.
The official Iraqi News Agency
quoted the commander of the Iraqi air
force as saying the Iranian convoy was
taken by surprise. He described it as a
"Jet fighter-escorted enemy naval con-
He warned that if Iran tried to
retaliate by attacking "Iraqi territories
and waters," Iraqi planes would "deal
heavy blows to neglected targets deep
into Iranian territory."

care center
MIAMI (UPI) - A probation officer
failed to report for more than four mon-
ths that a convicted child molester was
running a day care center now the sub-
ject of sexual abuse complaints, of-
ficials said yesterday.
It also was revealed that social ser-
vice workers in May dismissed as un-
founded an allegation of sexual abuse at
the day care center operated by Fran-
cisco Fuster Escalana.
THE STATE attorney's office is in-
vestigating complaints of sexual abuse
from parents of more than a dozen
children kept at the Country Walk Baby-
sitting Service.
Fuster, 35, was being held without
bond for violating his probation on a
1982 sex crime.
Prosecutors said another adult also
was under investigation but refused to
say if it was Fuster's 22-year-old wife,
Illeana, who helped care for more than
25 children in the couple's $150,000
Fuster's attorneys denied he commit-
ted any crimes.

DETROIT (UPI) - Sometime this
week, Kroger Co. will announce which
45 stores in southeastern Michigan will
reopen and when.
Plans to restock the stores and open
them for business hinged on approval
by nearly 5,000 laid-off workers of con-
cessions contracts.
BUTCHERS represented by United
Food and Commercial Workers Local
539 voted 302-25 Friday to accept a
three-year concessions offer. The day
before, clerks and cashiers belonging to
by Retail Store Employees Local 876
approved a similar pact by a 1,476-614
Paul Bernish, Kroger public relations
director, said the company had not yet

decided which stores would reopen but
planned to make an announcement on
the matter sometime this week.
It is expected that the Ann Arbor
stores will be among the 45 stores to be
Employees at closed stores would be
allowed to exercise seniority rights at
reopened outlets, he said. -
Kroger closed 70 of its 82 Michigan
stores - all in southeastern Michigan
- three weeks ago after workers rejec-
ted a concessions contract that would
have stripped them of their seniority
while slashing wages and benefits.
The pact approved last week reported
ly includes wage and benefit givebacks
but retains the seniority privileges of
the old contract that expired Aug. 4.

THE ANN Arbor chapter of the
Society for Creative Anachronism, a
medieval recreation group whose
members call themselves, "The Shire

medieval tournament fighting at the
festival today. Today is the event's last
David Hoornstra, a member of the
festival's production staff, said the
event did face an uncertain future
becasue of poor planning this year. But,
Hoornstra added, next year's event
should be better organized because the
committee has already set next year's
date and planned a fundraiser.
Hoornstra is also a member of the

Society for Creative Anachronism.
He said the group learns about the
medieval era by not only reading and
researching, but also by making their
own armor and costumes from the time
period. The society, which has spread
across the country, has divided the
United States into nine kingdoms. Ann

Hoornstra. He added, jokingly that the

event, he said.
