The commander of a major U.S. air base on Portugal's mid-Atlantic Azores islands has been relieved of command and is being investigated, the Air Force said. Spokeswoman Maj. Ginger Blazicko did not say what prompted the investigation of Col. Melvin M. Reeves, which began Nov. 7. She said Reeves was removed late last month because Lt. Gen. Phillip J. Ford, commander of the 8th Air Force in Barksdale, La., "lost confidence in Reeves' ability and fitness to command."

Spanish and U.S. officials failed again Friday to reach agreement on a new treaty to keep U.S. military bases in Spain, sending their negotiations into a critical final phase that will determine the bases' fate. Both sides sought to minimize their failure and emphasized that they have decided to meet next month for an eighth round of talks on the bases, which grew out of a joint defense agreement signed in 1953, when Gen. Francisco Franco was the chief of state.
