Reaqao takes Contra plea to public
WASHINGTON President Reagan,
seeking public pressure on Congress to
approve $100 million aid for "virtually
defenseless" Nicaraguan rebels, de
clared Sunday evening that the funds
are needed to "deny the Soviet Union a
beachhead in North America."
Beseeching Congress "to vote yes,"
Reagan emphasized his belief that "it
is not Nicaragua alone that threatens
us." In a televised address from the
Oval office, he asked viewers, "Tell
them to help the freedom fighters. Help
us prevent a Communist takeover of
In prepared remarks, four days before
the House votes on his aid proposal,
Reagan urged his countrymen not to
ignore "the malignancy in Managua
until it spreads and becomes a mortal
threat to the entire New World."

still need extras
LINCOLN ABC casting agents
still are looking for extras for the net
work's miniseries "Amerika," even
though shooting was scheduled to be
gin today at a farm near Elmwood, a
Lincoln talent scout said.
Jackie Beavers, who is working with
ABC on the television miniseries, said
agents will be looking for people and
calling them throughout the shooting
The most difficult part of casting
extras is finding the real "nitty-gritty'
people who will reflect the true Ne
braska spirit, she said. The people they
really would like to see apply are pre
cisely the ones who think they wouldn't
be wanted, she said.
Beavers said applications are avail
able at 740 S. 17th St. and at the
Nebraska Job Service offices in Lin
coln, Beatrice and Nebraska City.
She said Nebraskans interested in
an extra role need a photo and either
an application or a letter with vital
statistics, including age, height,
weight, coloring, occupation and avail
ability. Good availability is crucial to get
ting a part as an extra, she said. Extras
must be able to come in on short notice
and spend a 12-hbur day on the set.
Most extras will be paid about $40 a
day, she said.
ABC also is looking for about 20 peo
ple with old, rusted cars to appear in a
few scenes, she said. The cars must be
in working condition. Car owners should
send a photograph of themselves in
