Stockholm reduces aims production
STOCKHOLM, Sweden AP) — The international arms industry, no longer nurtured by the Cold War, will shrink by about 25 percent during Ole next five years, researchers say in a new report The United States and Western Europe face deep cuts, but the biggest reductions are expected in the former Soviet Union, says the report released today by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
Despite the downward trend, however, the arms industry is growing in some countries, including China, Japan and Turkey.
The report estimates that arms companies employ nearly 15 million people worldwide and that 3 to 4 million jobs in the industry will be lost by 1998.
The institute warned that although desirable, the cutbacks in the former Soviet Union could prove destabilizing if, as forecast, up to I million formerly privileged arms workers face unemployment

Reporter jailed for protecting source
(AP) — A newspaper reporter who was cited for contempt for refusing to divulge a confidential source elected to go to jail for 30 days rather than accept a compromise he said would have violated his principles.
Tim Roche rejected Gov. Lawton Chiles’ offer of freedom in exchange for 300 hours of community service Wednesday. The reporter's lawyer insisted an unconditional pardon was necessary to protect the public’s right to know.
“We came to vindicate a principle and not to compromise,” George Rahdert said. The governor knew that was . our position and was playing chicken with us. And I guess he won.”
Roche, 24, will report to jail on Monday, the lawyer said.
Roche, a reporter for the Bt Petersburg Times, was working for The Stuart News in 1990 when a judge found him in contempt for refusing to say who let nim see a confidential child custody order The U.8. Supreme Court refused to hear the case.Spring breakers swarming to Texas vacation spots
GALVESTON—Thousands of students are thronging Texas beaches to celebrate spring break, lured in part by what they won’t find at the seashore: No classes, no snow or ice, and — most importantly — no parents for miles.
“I brought a book to the beach the other day. Used it for a pillow,” David Bandre, 22, said Thursday as he vacationed in Galveston.

Tourism is the only industry on the island, so officials work to put out the welcome mat for~the approximately 60,000 students who will visit the island during spring break, Wheeler said. Some 5,000 of them came to the island this week.
About a quarter of a million students are expected to converge on the Corpus Christi area, particularly Port Aransas and Nueces County’s J.P. Luby Surf Pier and Park, during the six weeks of spring break, said Dana Stephens, communications manager for the Corpus Christi Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.
