CentA m bishops urge strong OAS action onRP


SAN JOSE, COSTA RICA
(USIS) - The leaders of the Roman
Catholic Church in Central America
want the Organization of American
States to take strong action to end
Gen. Manuel Antonio Noriega's
dictatorship in Panama.
In a statement issued after the June
meeting here of the Episcopal
Secretariat of Central America and
Panama (SEDAC) , which included
more than 60 bishops in the region's
six countries, the bishops asked the
OAS "not to abandon the
Panamanian people during these
difficult times.
"We urge the OAS to adopt a
firmer and more determined attitude
in the case of Panama by demanding
an end to the dictatorship, the


consolidation of democracy, and the
free exercise of public freedoms -
especially the freedom to vote. There
is less and less time to find a solution,
therefore rapid OAS action is
necessary."
An OAS special mission to
Panama is to report back to
hemispheric foreign minister July 19
on the results of its second trip in
search of a transfer of power.
The bishop's statement said
Panama's anguish was due to the
annulment of the May 7 elections by
Noriega-controlled electoral
authorities and the "continuation of
a political situation with all the
characteristics of an iron
dictatorship."
The "mnct disturhine conseauen-


ces" of that situation, they added,
were the uncertainty regarding the
transfer of power due to take place in
September, government control of
the media, and the grave economic
situation.
The bishops said the Panamanian
government and electoral authorities
should "fully respect" the results of
the May 7 elections, which
opposition candidates won,
according to most observers. The
winners of the elections are due to
take office Sept. 1.
They also demanded that the


Central American presidents
"comply with the letter and spirit" of
their August 1987, regional peace
agreement and follow-up accords.
The statement was signed by
Cardenal Miguel Obando y Bravo
and archbishops Prospero Penados
Del Barrio of Guatemala City,
Roman Arrieta -Villalobos of San
Jose, Marcos G. McGrath of
Panama City, and Hector W. Santos
of Tegucigalpa, and bishops Romeo
Touar Astorga of El Salvador, Jose
Dimas Cedeno of Panama, and Jose
Mario Avila del Aguila.

Editor's Note: The following
message to the U.S. Southern
Command has been sent by
President George Bush:

To the men and women of the U.S.
Southern Command:
All Americans are well aware of
the important missions you are
performing. Those of you who have
been serving in Panama, and those
who were sent there on May 11, are
on the front lines of preserving
American interests and the cause of
freedom.
America's strong presence in
Panama makes clear that we intend
to continue asserting our rights
under the canal treaties, in the
interest of American security and
world commerce. And our steady
resolve in support of democracy has


established a firm foundation of
hope for those Panamanians who
push their country everyday in the
direction of freedom.
Your service in Panama carries an
additional hardship for you and your
families because of the challenges of
family separation, relocations on
short notice, and travel restrictions.
We are especially proud of the
professionalism demonstrated by
our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and
marines - and American civilians
-in the face of these difficulties.
Barbara and I join a grateful
nation in sending you our thanks,
our best wishes, and our
congratulations for thejob you do on
behalf of your country.
To borrow a line from my good
friend Lee Greenwood, God bless
you, and God bless the U.S.A.

alcohol tests, and the results were
turned over to Coast Guard
investigators.
The industrial heating oil spilled
from a Uruguayan tanker, the
President Rivera, when it ran
aground early Saturday.
To help collect gobs of the thick oil
from the 20-mile-long spill along the
Delaware River, the Coast Guard
brought in additional equipment
Monday, including a second 600-
foot boom, as authorities
downgraded the spill estimate from
840,000 gallons to 800,000 gallons.
About 35 oil-covered Canada
geese were discovered in a lagoon
near Claymont, Del., and wildlife
officials worried that more waterfowl
would be threatened as the tide swept
oil toward Pea Patch Island, an
important Heron rookery near New
Castle, Del.
Booms were deployed to deflect
more globs from coming ashore on
the island, home to nine major
species of birds protected under the
Migratory Bird Treaty Act, officials
said.
Coast Guard officials said the
globs washing ashore on the New
Jersey side of the river threatened to
foul beaches across the state and in
Delaware.
Dick Nugent of the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service in Philadelphia said
he feared that the globs, which melt
in the sun after washing ashore,
would be picked up by birds and *
carried back to their nesting areas.
"It's like molasses or fly paper once
it hits you," he said.
In Houston, workers intensified
their efforts to clean the remainder of
a 252,000-gallon spill from a barge-
tanker collision before worsening
weather from the storm hit. Heavy
downpours began in Houston early
Monday and increased through the


day.
But workers continued to scoop up
the oil, collecting 3,490 of the 6,000
barrels originally spilled in the
collision, said Coast Guard Petty
Officer Bob Morehead.
"They're going to keep working
until they decide they can't work
anymore," he said. "The weather is
causing some problems handling the
equipment and making the turning
basin choppy, but not bad enough to
warrant stopping the operation."
In Newport, R.I., nearly all
beaches fouled by oil spilled from the
tanker World Prodigy have been
cleaned, but the Coast Guard feared
Monday a southeast wind might
blow the lightweight fuel back into
Narragansett Bay.
A state environmental department
spokeswoman said a decision might
be made later whether to reopen on
Tuesday beaches closed by the spill.
The remaining patches of home
heating oil, which was rapidly
evaporating, came within 5 miles of
Block Island about 12 miles off the
coast before changing direction with
the wind and the tide, said Coast
Guard Petty Officer Elizabeth
Brannan.
The Coast Guard and the National
Transportation Safety Board will
conduct a joint Board of Inquiry in
Providence Tuesday into the
accident, in which the Greek tanker
rammed a reef off Newport Friday,
ripping a 200-foot gash in its hull and
spilling an estimated 420,000 gallons
of oil into the water.
Rhode Island Attorney General
James E. O'Neil said he will convene
a grand jury Wednesday to consider
indictments against the ship's
captain and others involved in the
spill. The ship entered coastal waters
without a local pilot aboard.


Quake shakes Hawaii Island coast, causes damage


KALAPANA, Hawaii (UPI) -- A
strong earthquake shook the
southeast coast of Hawaii Island
Sunday evening, destroying at least
two homes and triggering landslides
and power outages. Some minor
injuries were reported.
The National Earthquake
Information Center in Golden,
Colo., said the quake measured 6.1
on the Richter scale. It struck at 5:27
p.m. HST (11:27 EDT), officials
said.
The Hawaiian Volcano Ob-
servatory said the temblor was
centered along the south flank of
Kilauea Volcano on the southeast
coast of the island, about 6 miles
beneath the surface.
The quake was the strongest in
Hawaii since Nov. 16, 1983, when a
temblor measuring 6.6 on the Richter
scale struck between the summits of
Mauna Loa and Kilauea volcanoes,
causing extensive damage in Hilo
and to homes and roads in the
Volcano area, but only minor
iniuries


Hawaii County Civil Defense
Director Harry Kim said at least two
homes in the Puna area on the
southeast coast of the island were
destroyed. Police said one of the
homes collapsed in Kalapana but the
owner was believed to be in Hilo.
The quake opened up some cracks
in the ground in the Kalapana area of
Puna, Kim said. Some were
substantial, as much as 2 feet wide
and 5 feet deep.
Only a few minor injuries were
reported from people hurt by falling
debris, Kim said. There were
widespread reports of power
outrages or partial outages.
At least four landslides were
reported along the Hamakua Belt
Highway between Hilo on the east
coast and Honokaa on the northeast
coast. The slides blocked lanes on the
highway in Honomu and
Laupahoehoe, police said.
"We are still responding to
emergency calls," Kim said.
A volcano observatory spokes-
woman said neonle reported feeling


the temblor for up to a minute. She
declined to speculate about whether
the quake might be related to
volcanic activity in the area.
Power outages were reported in
Puna, Ka'u, ahd Hilo, and a half-
hour outage in the Waiakea-Uka
area. The street lights in downtown
Hilo also went out as a result.


Telephone problems or complete
outages were also reported on the
southeast coast, officials said.
The quake was felt as far away as
the island of Oahu 200 miles to the
northwest, where police received
reports from people in the Honolulu
area who felt the shaking.


Trooper nabs drunk driver

in record low-speed chase


HOUSTON (UPI) --State
Trooper Kevin Kennedy will
probably always remember the
day he pulled over Alfonso Ovalle
Rodriguez for drunk driving after
a low-speed chase.
Rodriguez was weaving all over
Interstate 10 at about 2 mph when
Kennedy chased him down on
foot, perhaps the slowest pursuit
in the history of the Texas
Highway Patrol.
Rather than chase Rodriguez in


the patrol unit, the trooper simply
ran him down and began
pounding on the errant driver's
car window, saying: "Police! Pull
it over!"
When Rodriguez stopped, in
the middle of the interstate, he
admitted being intoxicated, the
trooper said.
"Hell, yes!" Rodriguez replied
when asked if he had been
drinking. "Moonshine and
tequila."

Flag ruling


WASHINGTON (Reuter) -- A
Supreme Court ruling that political
protesters cannot be barred from
burning the American flag has stirred
a controversy that could end with an

feel strikes at America's most revered
symbol of nationhood.

Court rules dial-a-porn services constitutional


by Henry J. Reske
UPI Supreme Court Reporter

WASHINGTON (UPI) -- A
unanimous Supreme Court ruled
that the federal government cannot
ban telephone services known as
"dial-a-porn."
In a two-part decision, the justices
also ruled 6-3 the government could
ban such services if they are deemed
to be "obscene."
Expressing concern children were
being exposed to explicit sexual
messages, Congress acted last year to
outlaw such telephone services.
But the court, in a unanimous
decision written by Justice Byron
White, said lawmakers went too far
in banning "indecent" messages.
But, White also said, "There is no
constitutional barrier to the ban on
obscene dial-a-porn recordings."
The court has wrestled with the
issue of what constitutes obscenity
for many years and has never drawn
a fine line between "indecent" and
"obscene." Generally, court rulings


have said obscene materials must
appeal to "prurient interests," but
specific cases are settled based on
local community standards.
White rejected the general ban on
telephone sex services because
"denial of adult access to telephone
messages which are indecent but not
obscene far exceeds that which is
necessary to limit the access of
minors to such messages, we hold
that the ban does not survive
constitutional scrunity."
Justice William Brennan, joined
by Justices Thurgood Marshall and
John Paul Stevens, said, "I have long
been convinced that the exaction of
criminal penalties for the
distribution of obscene materials to
consenting adults is constitutionally
intolerable."
The court's decision upholds a
ruling by a California federal court
concerning a 1988 amendment to the
Communications Act of 1934 to
prohibit indecent and obscene
interstate telephone messages. The
law included criminal sanctions of a


$50,000 for each violation and six
months in jail.
The messages, provided by a
variety of companies independent of
the phone company, are commonly
called "dial-a-porn" services.
The services have been attacked
for allowing anyone to call the
number and hear the messages.
Horror stories abound of $1,000
phone bills run up by youngsters
calling the numbers and claims the
messages prompt children to molest
one another.
Typically, the messages contain
suggestive language designed to
convince the caller the person
speaking is engaged in a sexual act.
In other action Friday, the court:
-In a case from Virginia, ruled that
the Constitution does not require
states to appoint attorneys for death
row inmates seeking to extend their
legal battles beyond direct appeals of
their convictions.
-Ruled that the Justice
Department has an obligation to
make available to the public copies of


opinions it receives from federal
courts around the country.
The case settled Friday began with
a legal challenge by Sable
Communications of California,
which provides dial-a-porn services,
before the law took effect in July
1988.
A federal district court ruled the
portion of the law dealing with
indecent speech was unconstitutional
and barred it from taking effect.
The court said the section was
"overbroad and unconstitutional"
and that a "flat-out ban of indecent
speech is contrary to the First
Amendment."
However, the court did allow the
prohibition of obscene telephone
messages, noting "obscene speech is
unprotected by the First
Amendment."
The government sought to have
the court's decision striking down the
section of the law dealing with
indecent speech overturned, while
the company asked the justices to
reverse the ruling on obscene speech.

Sovietparliament loses TV


MOSCOW (Reuter) -- The new
Soviet parliament resumed work
Monday but without the live
television and radio coverage that
captivated the country during its first
three weeks of stormy debate.
The decision not to broadcast the
proceedings live was announced at
the last minute by Tass news agency.
Several deputies attending the
morning session of the Council of
Nationalities said they thought it was
being televised.
The ruling contradicted an
announcement on the front page of
the weekly central television
program guide, which said that
proceedings would continue to be
shown live on the second television
channel.
Millions of people across the
Soviet Union clustered around
radios and televisions for the live
broadcasts of the parliamentary
debate in May and early June.
"The work of the parliament has
entered a long routine phase," Tass
quoted an official of the Supreme
Soviet Presidium as saying. "The
Presidium agreed that live
broadcasts of all sessions under these
conditions would not be
worthwhile."
It said "everything of greater
interest" would be shown, suggesting
that coverage would be limited to the
summaries put out by the television
news program Vremya, which some
of the more radical deputies have
said are distorted.


Communist Party ideology chief
Vadim Medvedev told the weekly
Argumenty Fakty last week that he
thought full coverage of proceedings
was pointless and impractical.
He also said the television cameras
had encouraged some deputies to try
to dominate the podium and develop
their oratory skills at the expense of
parliamentary protocol.
"And if it is correct to say that the
Congress proved to be a good school
of democracy, it would be as true and
self-aware to say that we have only
gone through the first stage of this


school," the weekly quoted him as
saying.
Live broadcasts of the inaugural
session of the full parliament, the
Congress of People's Deputies,
captivated Soviet citizens from the
first day.
They saw and, heard their
previously inviolable leaders quizzed
on their competence, their personal
life and their responsibility for the
violent dispersal of a demonstration
in Soviet Georgia which killed 20

Communist rebels kill 37 Filipino churchgoers


MANILA, Philippines (UPI) --
Scores of suspected communist
guerrillas ambushed a chapel in the
southern Philippines and killed 37
worshipers, including the minister
who was beheaded, police said
Monday.
In Manila Monday, suspected
communist rebels, hiding behind a
statue of the Virgin Mary, killed a
suburban police chief, and a police
corporal was slain in another suburb
in separate attacks, police said.
The 37 slaying by a band of 100
communist New People's Army
guerrillas occurred Sunday at the


remote United Church of Christ in
the Philippines chapel at Rano in
Davao del Sur province, 620 miles
south of Manila, police said.
The guerrillas, armed with rifles
and machetes, attacked the
worshipers, including women and
children, because the rebels
suspected them of being members of
an anti-communist vigilante force.
Among those killed was the
minister, identified by police as
Abadi Ayap, and his brother,
Clemente. Both were beheaded.
Bishop Emer Camba, head of the
UCCP in Manila, said he was


verifying the report and could not
give an immediate comment.
In the capital, gunmen hiding
behind a life-size statue of the Virgin
Mary at an entrance to a suburban
subdivision sprayed .45-caliber and
automatic-rifle fire Monday as
Paranaque station commander Lt.
Col. Jose Balbas drove alone in his
car on his way to work. Balbas was
killed instantly and his assailants
escaped.
Balbas was the second senior
police official to be assassinated in
less than a week by suspected
"Sparrow" hit squads of the 23,000-


member NPA, which has been
battling the government for 20 years.
Friday, assassins shot and killed
Lt. Col. Cesar de la Paz, deputy
police chief of suburban Cainta
town. De la Paz's driver and one of
the assailants also were killed in the
ambush.
Elsewhere in the capital Monday,
three guerrillas killed police Cpl.
Wilfredo Lusande while he was
seated in hisjeep in front of a billiard
hall, police said. A civilian who ran
after he was ordered to halt also was
killed and another bystander was
wounded in the attack, police said.


HongKong tourism reelingfrom China turmoil


HONG KONG (Reuter) -- Hong
Kong's tourism industry, which just
two months ago looked set for
another boom year, is reeling from
the effects of political turmoil in
China.
Frightened tourists are canceling
trips to China with Hong Kong travel
agents, and occupancy rates are
plunging in local hotels that used to
prosper by selling rooms to tourists
on their way to and from China.
"Tourists have seen the bloodshed
in Beijing on television and they're
scared of going to China now," said
Stella So, assistant sales director at a
Hong Kong hotel. "This has a direct
effect on Hong Kong."
More than a quarter of the 5.6
million visits to Hong Kong last year
involved a trip to China.
A slowdown in tourism could
affect Hong Kong's retailers as well.
Of the HK$33 billion ($4.2 billion
U.S.) in tourism receipts last year, 54
percent was spent in the colony's


shops.
"I had about 1,000 people booked
for China tours in June. All of them
have canceled," said Louis Kung,
assistant operations manager at a
local travel agent.


So said she expected her 431-room
hotel to have an occupancy rate of
about 70 percent in July compared to
the 90 percent it would normally
have at this time of year.

Be sure to flush in Singapore


SINGAPORE (UPI) --
Forgetting to flush the toilet in
Singapore's public restrooms in
restaurants, theaters and
department stores will be an
expensive mistake soon, the
Environment Ministry said.
Starting July 1, first-time
offenders will be fined up to the
U.S. equivalent of $75, said
officials of this Asian island
nation, with repeat offenders
drawing $500 fines.
The penalties are the latest steps
in a crackdown against non-
hygienic bathroom practices and


inconsiderate behavior.
During its "Clean Public
Toilet" campaign last year, the
ministry even deployed a team of
health inspectors in various public
restrooms to catch violators.
Those caught merely received
warning letters.
Under the new ruling, health
inspectors will be empowered to
issue summonses to offenders.
The ministry said the fines
applied to all toilets to which the
public has access, including those
in hotels, department stores,
movies and restaurants.


declining disastrously. They say
Hong Kong's own tourist attractions
and its expanding convention
business will attract increasing
numbers of people who are not
interested in China.
"Tourism growth will probably be
slower this year and activity will
probably fall next year," said an
analyst at brokerage S.G. Warburg
Securities. "But the industry should
be able to maintain a reasonable
performance."
The analyst said the industry had
been heading for slower growth
anyway, and the China crisis had
merely exaggerated the trend.
While the number of China-
related visits to Hong Kong last year
rose 39 percent from 1987, the
number of visits unrelated to China
rose 20 percent, according to figures
from the Hong Kong Tourist
Association.
But foreign tourists may take years
to regain their former enthusiasm.

Cuba: Fighting drugs or quelling army?


WASHINGTON (Reuter) --
Cuba's reported crackdown on high-
level military drug-traffickers may
signal a willingness to become an ally
in the U.S. war on drugs, politicians
and foreign policy analysts said.
Other Cuban experts find the
crackdown unconvincing, believing
its goal was to quell unrest in the
military.
Either way, analysts said the Bush
administration has shown little
willingness to accept any overture
from Cuban President Fidel Castro.
The administration has been
sharply critical of Cuba's alleged role
as an exporter of revolution, but
some political leaders say politics
should not stand in the way of
fighting drugs.
"The Castro regime's arrest of
officials in the government on drug
related charges must be seen as a
positive step showing a desire to stop
drug trafficking," said Rep. Charles
Rangel, chairman of the Select
Committee on Narcotics.
Until the arrest last week of top
army general Arnaldo Ochoa
Sanchez and six accomplices, the
Cuban government had denied any
links with the multi-million-dollar
drug trade.
The official newspaper Granma
dropped that stance.
It not only accused Ochoa of drug
deals but also charged that other
senior military officers helped


CUBA'S FIDEL CASTRO
...joining drug war or cracking down
on military?


U.S. denied

MIAMI (UPI) -- The asylum
request of anti-Castro militant
Orlando Bosch was denied Friday by
the U.S. Justice Department based
on his record of international
terrorist acts and classified FBI
reports, officials said.
Bosch, 62, returned to the United
States Feb. 16, 1988, after spending
11 years in a Venezuelan prison in the
1976 bombing of a Cuban jetliner
that killed 73 people. The
pediatrician also was convicted 20
years ago of attacking a Polish
freighter with a bazooka in the Port
of Miami and plotting to bomb other
ships trading with Cuba.
"Appeasement of those who would
use force will only breed more
terrorists," said acting Associate
Attorney General Joe Whitley in
Washington. "We must look on
terrorism as a universal evil, even if it
is directed toward those with whom
we have no political empathy."
Bosch had been promised at least
72 hours to make arrangements for
his deportation, officials said.
Bosch's chances for asylum


Colombia's Medellin drug cartel use
Cuba as a transit point for more than
six tons of U.S.-bound cocaine.
Taking a tough new line, Granma
warned in an editorial that those
flying across Cuba in the future
would be subject to "drastic
measures, even if if means shooting
down a plane that refuses the order to
land."
The State Department greeted the
reports of Ochoa's detention with
caution, urging that the charges
against the general be investigated
and prosecuted to the fullest extent,
if found true.
In recent years, Washington has
questioned the sincerity of Cuba's
efforts to fight drug traffickers and
even accused Cuba of helping them.
"Cuba and Nicaragua blatantly
aid traffickers smuggling drugs from
Colombia to the United States," the
President's Commission on
Organized Crime said in 1986.
Drug experts have been more
cautious in their assessment.
They have focused on the
overwhelming evidence against other
Caribbean islands, and say that more
than 60 percent of drugs entering the
United States pass through the
Bahamas.
Assistant Secretary of State for
International Narcotics Matters Ann
Wrobleski told Congress in March
that Cuba sits in the middle of some
of the primary drug routes into the
United States.
Aircraft and boats are reportedly
eluding U.S. agents by entering
Cuban territorial waters and
airspace, she said.
Wrobleski said Cuban authorities,
while having publicly expressed an
interest in anti-drug cooperation,
never elaborated on what kind of
cooperation they envisioned.
Some Cuban watchers said they
thought the detention of Ochoa, a
high-profile general who had
handled Cuba's major foreign
adventures, was an attempt to crush
discontent in the armed forces with
Castro's government.
Jaqueline Tillman of the Cuban
American National Foundation said
the drug charges were a smokescreen


s asylum to

appeared good May 19, when the
Immigration and Naturalization
Service ruled that confidential
evidence about his terrorist activities
was insufficient to block him from
seeking political asylum in the
United States.
But on May 25, the Justice
Department took jurisdiction. After
a monthlong review it ruled against
Bosch, who will remain imprisoned
at the Metropolitan Correctional
Center, where he has been detained
since his arrival in the United States.
"The conclusion is inescapable
that it would be prejudicial to the
public interest for the United States
to provide a safe haven for Bosch,"
Whitley said. "The United States
cannot tolerate the inherent
inhumanity of terrorism as a way of
settling disputes."
Hank Adorno, one of Bosch's
attorneys, said he could not believe
the Justice Deparment felt a 62-year-
old man was a threat to society. He
said the decision appeared to be
political.


to hide the true issue. "Ochoa was
either going to defect or do
something against the regime," she
said.
Others, however, said it was more
likely related to a two-year-old
campaign against corruption and a
firm stand by Castro against drugs.
Donna Rich, a Cuba expert at the
Johns Hopkins School of Advanced
International Studies, said Castro
was probably using the Ochoa case to
make it clear how he stood on the
drug issue.
"It's easier to make a point by
going after somebody high-up," she
said.
Rangel, who led a 12-member
narcotics committee delegation that


met Castro last December, said the
Cuban leader told the committee that
he wanted to work with Washington
and Latin America on narcotics
control.
A Rangel aide said due to Cuba's
strategic location, it could obviously
play a pivotal role in the fight against
drug traffickers. But the Bush
administration could only test
Cuban sincerity by engaging the
country on the drug issue.
As a result, the administration had
to decide what its priorities were,
weighing together "perceived foreign
policy interests," ideological
standpoints and the urgency of
waging an effective war on drug
traffickers.


Ochoapleads guilty to trafficking


MEXICO CITY (UPI) -- Gen.
Arnauldo Ochoa Sanchez, a
decorated national hero, pleaded
guilty to drug trafficking and other
charges before a Cuban militaryjury,
the official news agency Prensa
Latina reported.
Ochoa, arrested June 12,
presented his statement Sunday to a
military "court of honor,"
acknowledging his involvement in
drug trafficking, embezzlement and
corruption, said Prensa Latina,
monitored in Mexico City.
The report did not say what
sentence awaited Ochoa, a decorated
national hero for leading Cuban
troops during their mission in
Angola and once considered a
staunch supporter of President Fidel
Castro.
Castro's brother, Revolutionary
Armed Forces Minister Raul Castro,
blasted Ochoa before the military
jury for his alleged involvement in
drug trafficking and connections to
the notorious "Medellin Cartel,"
believed responsible for much of the
cocaine smuggled into the United
States, Prensa Latina reported.
Raul Castro's testimony to the
military "court of honor," comprised
of three generals and 44 "high-
ranking Armed Forces officials,"
said Ochoa betrayed "friendly
governments" in his quest for riches.

"I think it's incredible the INS
commissioner decides Bosch does
not present a security risk to the
United States and because of some
political reason the Justice
Department - which it has never done
before - takes the case back up to
Washington and decides the whole
case all over again."
Bosch's daughter, Myriam, said
she thought the Justice Department
was bowing to pressure from Cuba
because the United States was trying


"This infamous accumulation of
crimes and acts of disloyalty ... is an
outrage, a stab in the back," Prensa
Latina quoted Raul Castro as saying.
Cable News Network, citing
diplomatic sources, last week said
"profound" political implications
were behind the arrests of Ochoa Ind
other officials. The source said that
Ochoa and the others apparently
were pressing for political reforms.
Unconfirmed reports last week
said Cuba also arrested Luis
Barreiros, chief of the General
Intelligence Directorate.
Other intelligence agency officials
also were being interrogated for
alleged links to drug trafficking in
Panama, CNN reported.
The Revolutionary Armed Forces
Ministry decided to investigate
Ochoa's business deals and personal
life "when fears were raised that
(Ochoa) might desert (the military),"
Prensa Latina reported.
Raul Castro said Ochoa became
obsessed with his international
business transactions while in
Angola, and associated with
foreigners "of dubious political
integrity," the report said.
The government also said Ochoa
was involved in ivory and diamond
smuggling, in addition to drug
trafficking.

Americans need help to balancejobs, families


WASHINGTON (UPI) --
Americans are looking for assistance
and want both business and
government to help in the struggle to
meet the sometimes conflicting
demands of work and family, a new
study said Monday.
The study by the Roosevelt Center
for American Policy Studies was
based on forums involving 813
people at 12 different regional sites
who discussed and debated work and
family issues.
In a 30-page summary report,
"Balancing Work and Family: A
Citizens' Agenda for the '90s," the
center said, "Participants
unequivocally called for outside help
for families caught in the squeeze
between work and home obligations."
The report said, "While most
apparently see the employer as the
key source of this help, they are
prepared to involve government at
all levels to encourage, and in some
cases require, more generous or more
flexible work and family policies."
An overwhelming 82 percent of the


participants said business should
develop new personnel policies to aid
workers and their family needs and
only 12 percent said workers should
be the ones to adapt.
And, reaching beyond current
policy debates, those participating in
the forums endorsed a proposal to
require large employers to provide
paid family and medical leave to
employees. Current proposals only
offer unpaid leave.
At the same time, however, the
survey revealed some surprises in
relation to the current policy debates
in the administration and on Capitol
Hill over work and family issues.
"Many of the proposals being
hotly debated and widely vaunted in
Washington -- including the
minimum wage hike, the Act for
Better Child Care, President Bush's
child care tax credit and others --won
less than a majority of votes" when
presented as options to those
participating in the forums.
Most popular among the child
care options, for example, was a


proposal for a $500 million per year
tax incentive program to encourage
businesses to either subsidize day
care or set up day care centers at the
place of employment.
Also garnering a majority of
support -- 56 percent - was a $2.5
billion annual package of federal
subsidies for early education
programs, including the highly
popular Head Start program.
A majority of participants - 51
percent -- ranked education as an
"urgent" concern, outstripping
health care, housing, child care and
personal security.
In the emerging concern of elder
care, 59 percent of the participants
supported one of two options -- one
to require all large private employers
to offer comprehensive health
coverage to their workers while other
Americans, working or not, would be
covered by a federal national health
insurance plan -- that would provide
universal coverage of long-term
health care.
The proposals would require


about $20 billion in additional
federal spending and participants
favored supporting the plans by
increasing Social Security taxes on
those earning more than $45,000 per
year.
Underscoring what a growing
number of social and welfare reform
advocates have been saying in recent
years, participants also -- "almost
across the board" -- voiced support
for "universal" proposals that would
include the middle class rather than
just targeting the poor.
To pay for the programs they
supported, more than 70 percent
called for lower defense spending and
just over 50 percent urged increased
taxes on beer, wine, alcohol and
tobacco.
Center officials said the "work and
family" options supported by the
participants would total $36 billion
in new federal spending but were
offset by $32 billion in specific taxes,
for a net increase in the budget deficit
of $4 billion.


Busch drinkers like new light version of brew


ST. LOUIS (UPI) - Drinkers of
Busch beer asked for a light version
of their favorite brew, and Anheuser-
Busch Inc. has obliged with Busch
Light, which is being test marketed
this summer in Missouri, Illinois and
Texas.
Busch Light was introduced to
most parts of Missouri and Illin6is
and in Longview, Texas, in May after
several years of product
development, said Jack McDonough,
Anheuser-Busch vice president for
brand management.
"Consumers asked us for Busch
Light," McDonough said. "It was the
only major brand in the country
without a light partner. We've had it
under development for a long time."
Busch Light became the third beer
to be introduced by the brewing giant
this spring, and the fourth since the
introduction last fall of the popular
Michelob Dry. The brewery also
unveiled O'Doul's, a non-alcoholic
beer, and Bud Dry.
The moves are aimed at gaining a
larger share of the United States beer
market. According to Beer Institute
figures, Anheuser-Busch brands,
which include Budweiser and
Michelob and their light beer
counterparts, already account for
more than half the beer sold in the
United States.
With Busch Light, Anheuser-
Busch is aiming at big-selling
competitor Miller Lite.


"We see it as a way of grabbing
more of the market we don't have,"
McDonough said. "I think Miller
Lite is very vulnerable to a Busch
Light because it is the biggest (selling
light brand), but it is no longer
growing. It may be the biggest, but it
might be weaker."
McDonough said the giant
brewery is not worried that Busch
Light will woo beer drinkers away
from Bud Light or Michelob Light.
"We see it as a way of grabbing
more of the market we don't have,"
he said. "But we have a new product,
and we expect that some of our
current customers are going to try the
product. You have to expect that."
The beer was introduced into
Missouri and Illinois, where Busch is
the No. 1-selling brand.
"Busch is extraordinarily strong in
that territory. It would be the easiest
place to expect success,"
McDonough said.
Missouri and Illinois also were
chosen because beer drinkers in those
two states are showing signs of
greater consumption. Light beer
accounted for just 29 percent of sales
in the two states in 1988, but that was
a 9 percent increase over the previous
year.
There is a lot of product switching
in Missouri and Illinois because light
beer is "in," he said. He said that
represents the best opportunity for
the introduction of a new product.


However, in Texas, almost 50
percent of the beer sold is that of a
light brand. McDonough said Texas
also is a strong market for Busch,
with a 35 percent increase in sales in
that state in 1988.
Busch, which is tied for Coors
Light as the fourth-best-selling brand
in the nation, is sold in 41 states.
Busch Light will be priced at parity
with Busch, which in St. Louis is a
"near premium" price of about $3.49
for a six pack.
McDonough also said it is too
early to tell if Busch Light will be
expanded to all markets in which
Busch is now sold.
"There are some areas of the
country where we may not want to do
that," he said.
Busch Light is being advertised as
having fewer calories than Busch
(110 for a 12-ounce serving), but also
is being touted as a "draft" beer.
Draft beer is not pasteurized, but
instead goes through a cold-filtration
process. By making Busch Light a
draft product, McDonough said the
brewery hopes to lure more curious
consumers.
"Light beers at this point are very
broad in their age appeal. I think age
acceptance of this will be very
broad," McDonough said.
However, Busch Light is not the
first beer to advertise cold-filtration.
Brewers tried marketing such
products in the 1960s and 1970s.


Miller Brewing Co. entered the
category recently with its successful
Miller Genuine Draft and has led
Adolph Coors Co. to advertise some
of its proudcts as draft beers.
McDonough also predicted that
Busch Light may not be the end of
the line for new Anheuser-Busch
products.
"We are always developing new
products," McDonough said. "In the
last six months or so we have taken
one of those products (Michelob
Dry) nationally with great success,
and that's focused a lot on the other
new products we have. I would
expect you will see more new beers in
the future."

Aid cutback to El Salvador would be setback?


WASHINGTON (AP) -- A top
State Department official,
responding to skeptical senators,
said that a sharp cutback in U.S.
military aid to El Salvador would
play into the hands of extremist
elements and increase the level of
violence.
Assistant Secretary of State
Bernard Aronson expressed fear that
an aid cutoff would produce the same
result in El Salvador that it did in
Guatemala 12 years ago when that
country's military "killed everybody
in sight."
Aronson testified before the
Senate Appropriations sub-
committee on foreign operations,
making his congressional debut as
President Bush's top aide for
hemispheric affairs.
Most of the senators at the hearing
expressed impatience with
administration policy, asserting that
$5 billion in U.S. aid to El Salvador
in less than a decade had produced
minimal progress.
They noted that the civil war in El
Salvador continues to rage and


argued that the activities of rightist
death squads are on the increase.
Sens. Mark Hatfield, R-Ore., and
Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, said they
would seek legislation requiring that
50 percent of the $85 million military
aid planned for El Salvador be
withheld for six months.
The funds would be released only
if the administration could certify
that the Salvadoran government is
making progress toward a negotiated
settlement with leftist guerrillas.
Harkin said that a number of
Salvadorans identified with death
squad activities were forced to lower
their profile for a time but are now
back in the "good graces" of the
ARENA party, which took over the
government three weeks ago after
their electoral triumph in March.
Subcommittee chairman Patrick
Leahy, D-Vt., described U.S. policy
toward Central America as a "costly,
bloody failure" and said a new policy
for El Salvador in particular was
needed.
Aronson, a Democrat with a
conservative foreign policy outlook,


was treated more respectfully by the
subcommittee than his predecessor,
Elliott Abrams, who alienated many
lawmakers with his combative
approach.
But Aronson took strong
exception to a statement by Harkin
that the administration "closes its
eyes and ears to the threat from the
right" in El Salvador.
Aronson said admonitions to
Salvadoran leaders for improvement
in the protection of human rights are
carried frequently by administration
officials.
He also challenged assertions by
Democrats on the panel that
administration policy has produced
no gains in El Salvador. He noted
that despite the lack of a democratic
tradition in El Salvador, five
national elections have been held
since 1982 and that politically
motivated killings have dropped
sharply over the years.
Aronson returned earlier this week
from a visit to the Soviet Union,
where he had an exchange of views
on the situation in Central America.


Although he declined to provide
specifics, Aronson said the Soviets
made some encouraging statements.
The administration has been critical
of continuing Soviet bloc aid both to
the Sandinista government in
Nicaragua and to the Salvadoran
rebels.

PRETTY STRONG SQUIRREL - A French built Ecureuil (squirrel)
helicopter shows how much it can carry by lifting a sister ship at the Paris

t


planes would not fly in Congress.
"The Department of Defense has
produced a B-2 program that won't
fly financially," the Wisconsin
Democrat and chairman of the
House Armed Services Committee
said.
"We will not spend $7 billion to $8
billion a year for B-2 in its three peak
funding years."
The total cost of the program, an
average of more than $530 million
for each of the radar-evading
aircraft, had been unveiled earlier by
Defense Secretary Dick Cheney.
But the Air Force year-by-year
plan showed that while the Bush
administration had slowed costs in
the next three years, it plans to
sharply escalate the program in fiscal
1993 and beyond.
The Pentagon has already spent
$20 billion for Northrop Corp. to
develop the aircraft, which is
scheduled to make its first flight in
the coming weeks over the California
desert.
Former President Ronald Reagan
had asked Congress to spend $5.8
billion on the bomber in fiscal 1990,
but Bush has cut that proposal to
$4.7 billion, according to the Air
Force figures.
In fiscal 1991 and 1992, Reagan
sought $8.2 billion and $8.9 billion
respectively, the Air Force said. But
Bush has proposed scaling that back
to $5.3 billion and $7.8 billion.
But Aspin noted that the Bush
plan then begins to go even higher
than the Reagan proposal with $29.8
billion spent between fiscal 1993 and
eventual completion of the program.
That includes $8.4 billion in 1993 and
$7.7 billion in 1994.
Reagan had called for $22.6 billion
to complete the program.
Aspin noted that members of
Congress are faced with tight budgets
in the years ahead and are already
balking at spending Bush's request
for $4.1 billion on "Star Wars" anti-
missile defense research in fiscal
1990.
"It is not realistic to think we can
spend twice as much per year on a
plane," he added of the Bush call for
Stealth spending in the years ahead.


"Now that the final dimension of
the Stealth bomber -- its cost - is
publicly visible, we can begin to
address the problem," Aspin said.

Today's Jeep Wrangler different but still sells


by Jan A. Zverina
UPI auto writer

DETROIT (UPI) - The
descendant of the General Purpose
vehicle that helped this country win
World War 11 seems to be attracting
the same type of drivers nearly half a
century later.
Its fans still tend to be young,
single and adventurous, say Chrysler,
which acquired Jeep as part of
American Motors in 1987. Only these
days, one does not have to wear an
Army helmet or carry an M-l rifle to
drive the latest permutation of the
world's best known sport utility
vehicle, the Jeep Wrangler Islander.
The Islander is yet another version
of the Wrangler, introduced three
years ago as the next evolutionary
step in Jeep's lineage and a successor
to the CJ-7. It follows models like the
Sahara, a khaki-colored version for
those bent on pretending to be big
game hunters.
The Islander is, in short, one of the
most placid peacetime versions of the
original Jeep.
Gone is the Olive Drab paint
poured over the military versions for
years. In its place are colors with
decidedly non-military names --
Malibu Yellow, Bright Red, Pearl
White, and Pacific Blue. Also gone
are the stenciled military markings,
replaced by tape stripes and graphics


Developing
SINGAPORE (UPI) -- Consumers
in developing countries who never
fretted about the ozone level or toxic
wastes before are turning into
environmental crusaders with each
purchase of soap, cosmetics or
shampoo.
Lured into the newest Body Shops
by the colorful displays and
tantalizing scents of the skin and hair
products, shoppers soon learn each
time the cash tills are rung that some
of the money is used to save whales
from extinction, protect tropical rain
forests or fight the pollution of the
atmosphere.
"People told me I was crazy to
launch such an enterprise" outside
the West, said Anne L. Downer,
Asia-Pacific director and franchisee
for the British-based chain that is
soaring in popularity among
ecologically conscious shoppers in
Europe, Canada and the United
States.

But Downer wouldn't take no for
an answer. By combining a specially
trained sales staff with visually
enticing stores packed with
intriguing posters, informative
brochures and no pressure to buy,
residents who knew nothing about
ecological threats are emerging as
Second and Third World zealots.
"What an eye-opener!" said Agnes
Tan, a clerk attracted by the display
who emerged 30 minutes later
enlightened about the frightening
effects of ozone depletion from
chemicals known as chloro-
fluorocarbons or CFCs, used
primarily as propellants in aerosol
cans.
To help save tropical trees, paper is
recycled in Nepal and to reduce waste
there's a thriving refill service.
Biodegradable plastic is used
whenever possible.


of an orange sun on the hood and
doors.
But the unmistakable Jeep body is
still there. So are the detachable
doors and removable canvas top. But
like most sport utility vehicles, one
can rough it in comfort, since air
conditioning, AM-FM stereo,
automatic transmission and power
steering are now offered.
The Islander begins at $11,721 -
midway between the Wrangler S,
which starts at $8,995, and the
Wrangler Laredo, which costs nearly
$18,000 fully equipped.
The Islander evaluated for this
review cost $15,369 and was pretty
indicative of how these vehicles are
being ordered.
Air conditioning ($731), automatic
transmission ($422), larger
P225/75R Goodyear radials ($313),
power steering ($294) and AM-FM
stereo ($167) were just some of the
options, while the destination fee
added another $435.
In place of a 2.5 liter four was the
larger engine ($354), a carbureted 4.2
liter inline six that musters 112
horsepower at 3,000 rpm. A hard top
with glass windows is $748 more.
The Wrangler has comfortable,
high-back bucket seats and a
removable folding rear seat, all
covered in a durable-looking fabric.
The large storage bin between the
front seats is lockable - a good thing


because the Islander's side doors do
not lock unless the optional hardtop
is ordered.
Although Chrysler maintains door
locks are futile on a vehicle with
plastic side windows and a
convertible top, it will soon offer
them through dealers on 1989
versions and make them standard
equipment on 1990 models.
Full carpeting and a padded roll
bar also are standard on the Islander,
as is a complete array of instrumenta-
tion arranged across its no-frills
dashboard.
On the highway, the 3,036-pound
Wrangler Islander feels crude when
measured against the rides of more
modern utility vehicle designs. Its
short 93.4-inch wheelbase and leaf
spring suspension give ajouncy ride,
while its canvas top drums loudly -
making it feel like one is driving a tent
at 60 mph.
The Islander's optional inline six-
cylinder engine feels anemic when
even mild acceleration is called for
and is loud enough to compete with
the stereo and wind noise. Fuel
economy with the automatic also is
dismal, with a highway rating of only
16 mpg.
But everybody knows the freeway
is not the Wrangler's forte. Much like
the original, it still is the ideal vehicle
for beach duty or off-road maneuvers
because of its four-wheel-drive


capability - provided one heeds the
warnings against making abrupt
turns and depending on the soft top
to protect against anything more
than inclement weather.
A brief excursion on sand and
through a muddy construction site
containing some steep grades proved
no problem for the Islander, once its
transfer case was shifted into low
gear. This was done without the
driver having to get out to manually
lock the front wheel hubs, which is
required on some other four-wheel-
drive vehicles.
The Islander also negotiated some
rocky terrain without missing a beat,
its vital driveline parts and oil pan
protected by skid plates.
But it had to be rescued with tow
chains after an impulsive attempt to
traverse a muddy swamp failed.
Fortunately for the driver, it was
peacetime.
Access to service points like the oil
filter, drive belts and spark plugs on
the Islander's optional engine is
excellent. Fit and finish on the test
model was very good, although
lowering and raising the top was a
lengthy exercise.
Each Wrangler is covered by a one
year/ 12,000 mile basic warranty and
Chrysler's seven year/70,000 mile
powertrain warranty.


countries now seekprotection for ozone


"And we never use aerosol
packaging," Downer said.
The 31-year-old former British
nurse puts every member of the sales
staff through intensive training to
make sure they can speak
authoritatively on wide-ranging
issues from preserving the habitats of
threatened species to AIDS
prevention.
In June she launched a six-month
ozone campaign to bring the grim


realities of the sun's damaging
ultraviolet rays to people oblivious to
the danger.
"I'm trying to raise awareness,"
Downer said. "It's a harder process
here than in New York or London
where the public is already alarmed
about such a grave situation.
"In this area of the world, where

there are no groups acting as strong


environmental advocates, we're
sparking the interest, giving the
initial kick," she said.

Q. I am a very big fan of Jean LeClerc who portrays Jeremy Hunter
on "All My Children," and I have two questions regarding the actor.
First, could you please give me some background on Mr. LeClerc?
And, secondly, how does he feel about playing such an emotional
character on the soap? D.F., Baltimore, Md.
A. Jean began his acting career on a part-time basis in his native Canada
while he was attending the University of Quebec as a pre-med student.
However, soon after Jean came to terms with being an actor over continuing
in the medical field. He became a very well-known actor in Canada doing
several projects on television and stage. His first two major breaks involved
a movie and stage role. Jean starred with Zoe Caldwell in a television drama
about legendary actress Sarah Bernhardt. With this achievement, he
eventually landed a role in the Broadway play "Dracula," replacing actor
Frank Langella. Even though he has been offered several roles in television
and on the big screen, Jean is content with his role on "AMC" as long as his
melodramatic character of Jeremy continues to grow and is richly defined.
Jean is also very heavily involved with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation,
organizing many charity softball games between rival soap stars.

Q. I hear that Michael Jackson is a very fussy and difficult person
to get along with when he is on tour with a long list of demands for his
promoters. Is this true? M.W., Sanford, Fla.


A. Actually, nothing could be further from the truth. When Michael has
been on tour, he actually surprises his promoters by being very cordial, and
unlike many other rock stars, with few if any demands. All I have heard is
that Michael requests mineral water, a basket of fruit, and a portable toilet in
his dressing room. Certainly not a lot to ask for such a famous celebrity.

Q. When it comes to controlling his children, whom does Prince
Rainier have more control over - Prince Albert or Princess
Stephanie? R.E, Durham, N.C.
A. Apparently, Prince Rainier has more of a hold over Prince Albert. Last
year, Albert was offered a cameo role in a Warren Beatty movie and Prince
Rainer said "no go" and that was that.

stormed out, and later filed for
divorce. Dixie fell while Adam and
Tad fought. Joe feared the worst for
her and her unborn baby. Travis
asked Barbara to move in with him.
Erica and Jack became closer.
Cecily was jealous of Skye's obvious

influenced Philip's change of mind.
When Philip offered her the partner-
ship he'd withheld earlier, Rebecca
quit the firm. Sam got Rebecca's
tacit approval to snoop into Jason's
background. Wait To See: Jessica
gets a strange message.


ARIES (March 21 to April 19)
Non-marital pursuits are clearly
favored over business ventures this
week. Be extra careful regarding the
use of credit. While you might be
interested in adding a few credit
cards to your collection, this is not
the time to do so. Be sure to read all
fine print regarding offers that
intrigue you before signing on the
dotted line.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Be
wary of co-workers this week as
everything you hear on the job might
not just be the exact truth. This
week you need to be especially
shrewd and wary of rumor mongers
who might not have your best
interests at heart. This weekend
socializing is clearly favored as are
club or hobby-oriented activities.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) It is
very important this week that you
have your privacy. Be wary of a
friend who continually intrudes on
your time. If you allow yourself
some peace of mind and needed rest
at this time, you will be able to sort
out any pressing problems on your
mind. This weekend, stay close to
the homefront with the accent on
rest and relaxation.
MOON CHILDREN (June 21 to
July 22) If you are in a new budding
romance this week, you could have a
slight disappointment. Be on the
lookout for a manipulative family
member. Collaborative efforts aren't
especially favored this week, so
work alone. Now is the time to catch
up on those chores you have
ignored.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) This
week will feature some of your very
best business ideas, so be prepared
to be at your best as bigwigs will be
watching with heightened interest.
Even though you are feeling anxious
and restless, home activities are
more favored now than outside
interests.
VIRGO (August 23 to September
22) Though your judgment is very
good this week regarding activities
on the job, you may be a bit blinded
in your personal life. A friend now is
extra sensitive and easily offended,
so think before you speak. It is not,
though, necessary to be overly
accommodating this week.


LIBRA (September 23 to October
22) Some relaxation is necessary
this week as you may be too hard on
yourself or those around you. Per-
haps a quick and inexpensive
weekend getaway is in order. Finan-
cial porblems could be in the picture
now, so worry could keep you from
being your best self.
SCORPIO (October 23 to Novem-
ber 21) Now is not the time for a lot
of talking. You still need to keep a
plan under wraps for now. You can,
however, expect a marked increase
in social activities this weekend.
Unexpected developments on the
job are favorable this week. Try not
to spend too much money this
weekend.
SAGITIARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) Your originality and
politeness will lead to great gains
this week on the job. In fact, your
stars are working for you now in
many ways. A new budding romance
is in the stars for singles, and
married couples will experience
renewed love and harmony. Enjoy.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to
January 19) Discussions with
higher-ups at work are very favor-
able this week. However, be sure not
to take on more than you can handle
regarding your job responsibilities.
Someone close to you has some
good advice regarding a project.
Romance is also in the air this week,
especially for the unattached.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to
February 18) A surprise visit from

overspend this week; so keep a tight
rein on your purse strings.

Lendl struggles, but wins at Wimbledon


WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -
Top-seeded Ivan Lendl barely
avoided another case of Wimbledon
woes, while teen-age sensation
Michael Chang mowed down his first
grass-court opponent Monday at the
Grand Slam tournament.
Lendl, who has won every Grand
Slam title except Wimbledon,
struggled for three hours before
beating hard-serving Nicolas Pereira
of Venezuela 7-6, 4-6, 6-3, 6-7, 6-1.
"I always have a hard time getting
my rhythm, but today was especially
difficult," Lendl said. "I didn't break
a sweat until the fifth set because
there were no rallies."
Chang, the 17-year-old Calif-
ornian who scored a shocking victory
in the French Open two weeks ago,
beat fellow American Bill Scanlon
6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 6-3 in his opening match
at the All England Club.
"He's a polite young man, but
when he gets on the tennis court he's
going to do everything he can to beat
you," Scanlon said.
Earlier on Centre Court,
defending champion Stefan Edberg
used his smooth serve-and-volley
game to down Canadian Chris
Pridham 6-3, 6-4, 6-1 before a sun-
splashed crowd that included
Britain's Dutchess of York.



Ronald Reagan to

call All-Star game

NEW YORK (AP) - Ronald
Reagan will return to his former
job on July 11 -describing
baseball games.
The former president will do
one inning of color commentary
during NBC's telecast of the All-
Star Game on July 11, the
network said Monday. Reagan
will join regular announcers Vin
Scully and Tom Seaver in the
broadcast booth at Anaheim
Stadium.
Reagan, known at the time as
"Dutch," broadcast Iowa football
in 1932 for WOC radio in
Davenport, Iowa. One year later
he shifted to WHO, an NBC
affiliate in Des Moines, Iowa, and
for five seasons did recreations of
Chicago Cubs games based on
written descriptions provided
over Western Union wires.
"You would think from hearing
those ballgames you were sitting
in Wrigley Field," said H.R.
Gross, who at the time was a
WHO newscaster and went on to
become a Republican con-
gressman from Iowa, serving 26
years.
Reagan did 1 1/2 innings of
color commentray last Sept. 30
during a surprise visit to Wrigley
Field. He joined Harry Caray and
Steve Stone in the broadcast
booth.
"American presidents have long
been associated with baseball,"
NBC Sports president Dick
Ebersol said in a statement.
"President Reagan's background
in baseball broadcasting creates a
special opportunity to keep that
relationship alive."
NBC will be broadcasting its
last All-Star game for a while.
Beginning in 1990, CBS begins a
four-year contract with baseball.


"I was a little nervous walking out
on the court, but I got off to a good
start and that helped," the Swede
said. "It's a nice feeling being
defending champion. You can hear
the crowd and you have nice
memories. But once you get on court,
that disappears very quickly."
Also disappearing quickly were
sixth-seeded Jakob Hlasek of
Switzerland and No. 14 Andrei
Chesnokov of the Soviet Union.
Hlasek was upset by Thomas
Hogstedt of Sweden 6-3, 7-6, 6-1 and
Chesnokov lost to Brad Drewett of
Australia 6-4, 7-6, 6-0.
A pair of two-time champions,
Boris Becker and Jimmy Connors,
easily won their opening matches.
Becker beat American Bryan Shelton
6-1, 6-4, 7-6 and Connors started his
18th consecutive Wimbledon with a
6-3, 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 Centre Court victory
over Andrei Cherkasov of the Soviet
Union.
"I feel comfortable walking out on
about five courts in the world, and
this is one of them," Connors said.
Also advancing were fourth-
seeded Mats Wilander of Sweden,
No. 7 Miloslav Mecir of
Czechoslovakia, No. 13 Aaron
Krickstein of the United States, No.
15.Mikael Pernfors of Sweden and


No. 16 Amos Mansdorf of Israel.
In women's play, Monica Seles,
15, of Yugoslavia won her grass-
court debut over Brenda Schultz of
The Netherlands 7-6, 1-6, 6-3. Sixth-


seeded Helena Sukova of
Czechoslovakia, No. 9 Natalia
Zvereva of the Soviet Union and No.
15 Lori McNeil of the United States
also won their opening matches.

Evidence indicates Rose t


NEW YORK (AP) -Baseball's
investigator concludes in his 225-
page report released Monday there is
evidence that Pete Rose bet on
Cincinnati Reds games over a three-
year span beginning in 1985.
The report by investigator John
M. Dowd was publicly released
Monday by a state judge who had
kept it private until after he ruled on
Rose's request for a temporary
restraining order.
"Between May and July 1987,
Rose bet ... $2,000 per game on
baseball, including Reds games," the
report said.

Judge Norbert A. Nadel released the
report Monday under pressure from
the Ohio Supreme Court, which said
he had no reason to keep it sealed.
Nadel on Sunday granted Rose's
request to block a hearing that was

Larry Bird plays first game in 7 months


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - As first
steps go, this one looked more like a
leap for Larry Bird.
In his first game appearance in
seven months, Bird scored 33 points
in 29 minutes as his White team
outscored the Red 182/168 in the
Larry Bird Pro All-Star Scholarship
Classic.
As the score indicated, there was
little defense played Sunday night in
Market Square Arena. But for Bird,
the mere act of stepping on the floor
marked a significant point in his
comeback from surgery on both


heels.
"Well, it's been a while, but overall
I was pleased with this little test,"
Bird said. "I really wasn't thinking
about the injury going out there. I
was just worried about getting in the
flow and up and down the court.
These are games that are great for
seeing what kind of shape you're in. I
obviously need to be in better shape
for the season. I've got three months
yet to prepare for next year."
Bird. who made his first six shots
in the second half, was 13-for-23.

and had seven assists and five
rebounds. He ran the floor well but
was cautious with his cuts from
side-to-side.
"I don't think his lateral movement
was there," said the Indiana Pacers'
Chuck Person, who scored 15 points.
The next step for Bird, after a
closer inspection by the medical
corps, is the Celtics rookie camp in
late July.
"Ill have to talk to the doctors and
trainer," Bird said. "and see what
thev have in store for me."

Floods widespread in southeast Texas


HOUSTON (UPI) -- Tropical
storm Allison was downgraded to a
tropical depression early Tuesday as
it drifted through East Texas
towards Louisiana, but the torrential
rain it dumped in Southeast Texas
left widespread flooding.
Up to 11 inches of rain fell in
Montgomery and Harris counties
Monday and early Tuesday, with 6 to
8 inches east of Houston in Liberty
and Hardin counties, the National
Weather Service said.
Houston police said slick roads
and poor visibility caused by Allison
were factors in a car accident that
killed one man and caused minor
injuries to two other people.


Several area rivers and lakes had
crested or were near flood stage early
Tuesday, including Lake Houston
northeast of Houston, said weather
forecasters and local authorities.
Officials said Flood Control
District gauging crews at one point
were unable to get to some streams
and bayous because of the high
water.
Flood waters in the Houston area
made several major roads
impassible, including southbound
lanes of Interstate 10, southbound
Interstate 45 between Edgebrook
and Clear Lake, State Highway 59 at
U.S. Highway 610 and feeder roads
for all the major highways, Debbie


Schmidt of the Harris County
Emergency Management Office said
early Tuesday.
Several homes in communities east
and north of Houston were
evacuated as many areas streams and
creeks crested, Schmidt said. She
said many cars on Houston streets
were swept away by flood waters but
no one was injured.
By 6 a.m. EDT Tuesday, the
National Weather Service reported
Allison -- the first tropical storm of
the Atlantic season -- was about 50
miles north northwest of Houston,
moving north at about 6 mph, with
maximum sustained winds still at 35
to 40 mph.

Soviet par

MOSCOW (UPI) -- Premier
Nikolai Ryzhkov agreed Tuesday to
withdraw the names of six of his
Cabinet choices who were not
endorsed by legislative committees,
marking the first time in Soviet
history that a parliament has rejected
high government candidates.
Ryzhkov, acknowledging that the
revamped Supreme Soviet had
turned down nearly half of his
proposed 13-member Cabinet, told
the newly emboldened lawmakers
that he would nominate other people
for the senior posts, the official Tass
news agency said.
The rejected candidates included
two present Cabinet members
Ryzhkov had wanted to remain on
the job, Culture Minister Vasily
Zakharov and Marat Gramov,
chairman of the State Committee for
Physical Culture and Sports.
Ryzhkov's announcement came
one day after the parliament
approved a legislative agenda that
would overhaul the legal system and
give Soviet citizens more power in
virtually every sphere of life from
courts and churches to trade unions


Army South, Brig. Gen. Marc
Cisneros, made the following
remarks during the change of
command ceremony Friday.
"A little over two years after I was
promoted and was frocked to
brigadier general, I was dragged
screaming and kicking out of
USARSO, having spent about six
months here as Deputy Commander
during that time. Serving at
SOUTHCOM as Director of
Operations, I agonized with you over
the events that have occurred here
during the past two years -- the abuse
to our soldiers, the abuse to our
families.
"It took a lot of moral courage to
stand fast in the tasks that we were
given in view of the Panama elections
that were coming up. I want to tell
you I agonized as to what comments
I was going to make this morning as a
reflection on that. However, there
are a lot of things that are probably
best not said. I would like to say that
General Woerner put it all in
perspective in his comments earlier.
"There are some things, however,
that cannot be left unsaid, and I
would like to express this to you as I
start a new chapter in my life. First,
my sincere appreciation to General
Woerner for his trust and confidence
in selecting me to command
USARSO. The magnitude of that
trust and confidence is reflected by
the statement made by one of our
great presidents, who said:
" 'Our strength, as well as our


convictions, have imposed upon us
the role of leader in freedom's call.
No role in history could be more
difficult or more important. We
stand for freedom. The great
battleground for the defense and
expansion of freedom today is,
among others, Latin America, the
land of the rising people. Their
revolution, is the greatest in human
history. They seek an end to injustice,
tyranny and exploitation. And more
than an end, they seek a beginning.'
"So said President Kennedy. And
here we are in the midst of a role that
is the most difficult and important
that our country and the Army faces.
I'm honored by the trust and
confidence that places me in that
role. And any time that any dime
store dictator regime or its press
criticizes General Woerner or myself,
I take heart that we do indeed stand
for freedom's call.
"To General Loeffke and
Francesca, we wish you well in your
next assignment. General Loeffke,
you have left us an honored legacy by
your feeling for freedom and God
bless the U.S.A. We are indeed proud
to be Americans.
"Finally, to you soldiers, who
carry the burden of ensuring
freedom, I dedicate myself, body and
soul, to your safety and well-being. I
will be tough, but I will be fair. If
called upon, we will be ready, swift
and decisive. 'Dales duro.' God bless
the U.S.A. and democracy."


A flash flood watch was issued
until 7 p.m. Tuesday for several East
Texas counties, south of a line
extending from Centerville to Rusk
to the state line east of Center in
Nacogdoches County.
At one point Monday night, as
Allison tore past Houston, flood
waters reached the top of one 14-
foot-3-inch high Interstate 45
overpass at Main Road, close to the
downtown area,

and grass-roots government.
"Soviet head of government
Nikolai Ryzhkov accepted the
decision of parliamentary
committees and commissions that
denied endorsement to six of his
candidates for ministerial posts,"
Tass said. "This is the first time in
Soviet history that Parliament
rejected candidates for government
positions." At least five of the
Cabinet choices were not
recommended last week during four
days of raucous legislative committee
hearings.
In addition to Zakharov and
Gramov, Ryzhkov withdrew the
names of Gennady Bogomyakov for
minister of oil and gas, Lira
Rozenova for head of the State
Committee on Prices, Vladimir
Gribov for chairman of the State
Bank, and Polad Polad-Zade for
minister of land improvement and
water management.
The two houses of the Supreme
Soviet, beginning its inaugural full
session Monday, approved a 21-
point legislative program in which
deputies will spend the next five


weeks considering laws affecting
every aspect of society.
The legislature - the first to wield
independent power in 70 years - put
in place several pillars of Western
parliamentary procedure, including
multiple readings of pending bills.
One deputy even distributed a
book on how the U.S. Congress
drafts laws.
"The very look of that large
volume stirred the audience," the
official Tass news agency said.
Yevgeny Primakov, chairman of
the Council of the Union, told
lawmakers that Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev will brief a joint
session of Parliament on his trips to
West Germany and France when he
returns from his French summit in
two weeks.
Previous legislatures were rubber-
stamp bodies that met for a day or
two and complacently "approved"
nominees for the highest government
posts, supplied by the ruling cliques
of the Communist Party.
The political system was
overhauled last year at a special party
conference called by Gorbachev. A


significant result of the landmark
conference, multi-candidate
parliamentary balloting held earlier
this year, was preceded by boisterous
election campaigns that captivated
the nation.
Draft laws placed on the agenda
significantly extend such basic rights
as the freedom of assembly,
conscience and self-government.
Some of the laws would give more
rights to workers, consumers,
inventors, jurists, lawyers and
plaintives, journalists and young
people.
Others prescribe massive
overhauls of the Soviet criminal and
tax codes.
Legislators Monday did not limit
their focus to lawmaking as one
deputy after another displayed the
political spirit that has flourished
under Gorbachev's policy of
"glasnost," or openness.
Some deputies even challenged the
makeup of a proposed military and
intelligence oversight committee,
saying most of its members were tied
to the defense industry.
