Texas Friday October 11,1985 25 Cents 34 Pages 3 Sections U.S. warplanes force down jet CATANIA, Sicily (AP) U.S. warplanes acting under orders of President Reagan today forced an Egyptian jet carrying the Palestinian hijackers of a luxury liner to land in Sicily, U.S. and Italian officials said. The four pirates, who Western officials say killed a partially paralyzed American Jew aboard the Italian cruise ship, were seized by police for prosecution The Palestinians* who identified themselves as members of a Palestine Liberation Organization splinter group, commandeered the Achille I.auro off Egypt on Monday and terrorized more than 500 passengers arid crew for two days. They surrendered to representatives of the PIX) on Wednesday, and the hijacked ship .steamed into Port Said, Egypt. It was only then that officials confirmed the death of 69-year-old Leon Klinghoffer from New York City. Egypt put the four Palestinians aboard an Egyptian Boeing 737 Thursday for a flight out of the country. Israel quoted unidentified U.S. officials as saying two PLO officials also were aboard As the plane was over the Mediterranean on its way to Tunisia, where tile PLO has its headquarters, U.S. Navy F-14 fighters took off from the aircraft carrier Saratoga to meet it, White House spokesman Ixirry Speakes told a news conference late Thursday. U.S. officials said Tunisia had refused landing rights for the plane. “The president directed that U.S. forces intercept the aircraft,” as part House passes textile bill WASHINGTON (AP) - Major trade legislation to force sharp cutbacks in textile and apparel imports, approved by the House in defiance of a Reagan administration veto threat, now is moving toward a Senate floor fight. “This is the last gasp of this industry,” the measure’s chief House sponsor, Rep. Ed Jenkins, IMia., said Thursday as the measure won 262-159 approval. That margin was short of the two-thirds required to override a veto. An emotional appeal by Jenkins failed to stem defections among the bill’s initial 292 House cosponsors. Critics said it would bring retaliation in East Asia against U.S. products, cause layoffs here and raise consumer prices. U.S. Trade Representative Clayton K. Yeutter issued a statement saying the slippage in support for the bill showed “congressional enthusiasm for self-destructive protectionism is waiting." As he left the House chamber, however, Jenkins told reporters he would “switch 15 people between now and the override if the override comes." “This is only the first inning," he said “There will be others." Override of a presidential veto requires a margin of two-thirds of those voting and, thus, the number needed in any specific instance depends on how many of tile 435 congressmen answer the rollcall. The measure is the spearhead among more than 300 pending trade bills. The wave of legislation has mounted amid estimates that the U.S. trade balance will run $150 billion into the red this year. Under the textile bill, imports of products ranging from cotton and wool to parachutes and stuffed animals would be reduced and then permitted to grow by I percent or 6 percent annually, depending on the country of origin. TTie brunt of rollbacks would fall on Brazil and ll Asian nations. Canada and the European Economic Community would be exempted from rollbacks. The bill also would shield Mexico and the Caribbean from the sharpest cuts. In a move to widen support, Sen. Strom Thurmond, R-S.C., modified the Senate version of the measure to target only the “Big Three" textile exporters — Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea — for the harshest cuts. He also added quotas on shoe and luggage imports. Herald names city editor Patricia Yznaga King has been named city editor of the Herald Zeituny it was announced today b> Susan Haire, managing editor Yznaga-King, who has been employed by the Herald since June 1983, will assume the position immediately.

The airliner touched down at Sicily’s Sigonella airport, a NATO base near Catania, at 12:30 a.rn (6.30 p.m. Thursday COT), said a spokesman for Italian Premier Bettino Craxi. Once on the ground, the jet “was surrounded by American and Italian troops," Speakes said. U S sources in Washington said American units deployed included Navy SEALS, an elite combat unit. The hijackers were taken off the aircraft for trial in Italy, the spokesman for Craxi told The See HIJACK, Page SA Jail head resigns By LILLIAN THOMAS Staff writer Comal County Jail Adminstrator John Jenkins resigned his post Thursday.

Fire Safety Tip With the cold weather closing in, the New Braunfels Fire Department has a recommendation for you: Have your heaters checked and serviced. After a period of non-use, lint and dust builds up rn the heaters and duct work. Without proper cleaning, these particles may ignite or produce smoke the first time the heaters are used. The first time you light the pilot lights this year, be sure doors and windows are open to provide adequate ventilation.
