earlier told reporters that the
mutineers had acknowledged the
government's position that their
political and economic demands
were "non negotiable."
The surrender talks had included
discussing the rebels' "voluntary
return to their barracks" in exchange
for assurances they would be
"treated humanely and fairly," Gen.
Enrile said, but he emphasized that
the rebels were being given no
assurances of amnesty.
The negotiated surrender, if
carried out, would effectively end the
mutineers' siege of Manila, where the
rebellion began before dawn Friday
with ground and air attacks on
several military bases and the
presidential palace.
President Corazon Aquino
stepped up pressure on the mutineers
Wednesday by declaring a
nationwide state of emergency after
tourists and foreign residents were
allowed to evacuate the besieged

Witness claims Noriega 'gift'

intended for money laundering


LAFAYETTE, La. (UPI) - A
government witness in the drug trial
of 23 defendants testified he gave a
$300,000 "gift" to Panamanian
strongman Manuel Noriega in 1983
to start a money-laundering
operation.
Steven M. Kalish, a convicted
drug smuggler, told the jury in
federal court Tuesday he met
Noriega as part of a plan to launder
the profits from the importation of
hundreds of thousands of tons of
marijuana.
Kalish testified he took $2 million
in cash to Panama in 1983 "to feel out
the situation" with officials of that
country.
He said he met with Cesar
Rodriguez and Enrique Pretel,
partners with Noriega in the
Servicios Touristicos company, to
discuss the laundering plan.
Kalish said that at their first
meeting an unidentified military
officer told him his private jet was
being watched by the Drug
Enforcement Administration, which
had contacted Panamanian officials.
"I had no idea who this military
guy was," Kalish said.
He told Rodriguez and Pretel he
expected to have $100 million to
launder and wanted assurances the


money would be protected. The
Panamanians arranged a meeting
with Noriega at the strongman's
home.
The next day, Kalish testified, he
was taken to Noriega's home and
gave the leader a $300,000 "gift."
"I am rather impressed that I am in
this man's home," he told the court.
Noriega agreed to assist the
smugglers and an additional $2.5
million was sent to the Bank of
Commerce Credit International in
Panama, with Rodriguez, Pretel and
a third man splitting a 5 percent
commission, Kalish said.
The importation ring was broken
later in 1983 when government
agents seized a 200-foot barge near
the Louisiana coast laden with 1
million pounds of marijuana.
Kalish, 37, was the 70th witness to
testify in the trial of the 23
defendants. He testified that in
payment for the 1 million pound
load, $25,000 went to each member
of a group of truckers who also were
given $100,000 for their efforts in
helping the Irish Republican Army.
In another smuggling effort,
Kalish said a boat was seized by the
Colombian navy on its way to that
country but was freed when members
of the ring paid Colombian officials a
$100,000 bribe.


Contra scandal.
"The nature of the material -
raises profound constitutional
concerns," the Justice Department
told Greene, as well as "the authority
of the courts over the most intimate
writings of a former president."
Richard Nixon raised the doctrine
of executive privilege in 1974, but the
Supreme Court ruled against him -
ordering Nixon to turn over secret
White House tapes for use at a
Watergate criminal trial.
But the Justice Department argued
Wednesday that the Nixon subpoena
was far more specific than
Poindexter's Reagan subpoena and it
was based on "sworn statements of
testimony of participants in some of
the taped conversations."
The Reagan subpoena is overly
broad, the Justice Department
argued, calling it a "disguised
discovery attempt" to obtain a large
number of presidential documents.
Release of the Iran-Contra
documents and diaries "could have a
long-lasting impact on the presidency
and the manner in which future chief
executives carry out their functions,"
the Justice Department also told the
judge.
Although independent Iran-
Contra prosecutor Lawrence Walsh
is bringing the case against
Poindexter, the Justice Department
has become involved in the legal
battle because many of the Reagan
presidential documents are in the
custody of the National Archives, a
government agency.
The Justice Department noted that
Poindexter's lawyers want 67
different types of documents and
even the description of the items "is
classified."

FBI investigates secre


DETROIT, (Reuter) - The
Detroit city council decided
Wednesday to subpoena police
department records of a multimillion
dollar secret fund being investigated
by the FBI for possible corruption.
The fund, controlled by Chief of
Police William Hart, is supposed to
pay for undercover operations,
tipsters and security.
But investigators have said it


appears almost $1 million of the fund
was siphoned off. Apparently, some
of the money was used to pay the
$3,000 a month rent on the chiefs
daughter's posh Beverly Hills, Calif.,
home.
Chief Hart has said he did not
know about the payments for his
daughter's house and until Tuesday
was leading the police investigation
into the matter.


WASHINGTON (UPI) -
President Bush ordered creation of a
federal education task force
Wednesday that will seek to reduce
relatively high dropout and illiteracy
rates among Hispanic Americans.
Bush directed Education Secretary
Lauro Cavazos, a Hispanic, to head
the Task Force on the Education of
Hispanic Americans, saying, "As
Hispanics become the largest
minority group in the United States
- it becomes more and more
important to overcome the crisis in
Hispanic education."
According to the Census Bureau,
there are now an estimated 20.1
million Hispanic Americans, 39
percent more than a decade ago.
About a third are under the age of 21.
At a reception for Hispanic
corporate leaders at the White
House, Bush, flanked by the
education secretary, said Cavazos'
task force would report back to him
with recommendations by the end of
February.
"I1' incorporate these findings into
our broader efforts to improve
American education, mandated by
our education summit with the


nation's governors" last September,
Bush said.
In his letter to Cavazos, Bush
quoted recent statistics that the
education secretary provided to the
president, including:
-Between 9 percent and 11
percent of Hispanic students drop
out of high school each year, the
highest dropout rate of any major
ethnic or racial group.
-Every major report on adult
illiteracy has found that the rate for
Hispanics is much higher than for the
non-Hispanic population.
-Among Hispanics over the age
of 25, 52 percent have not completed
high school, and only 10 percent have
completed four or more years of
college. The figures for non-
Hispanics are 24 and 21 percent,
respectively.
The president said the new task
force, which will be part of his
Domestic Policy Council, should:
-Assess the participation of
Hispanics in federal education
programs.
-Identify barriers that limit
Hispanic participation in education
programs and suggest remedies.

Gunman kills 11, selfat school


MONTREAL (AP) - A man in a
hunter's outfit walked through the
University of Montreal engineering
school on Wednesday firing a rifle "at
anything that moved," killing 11
people and wounding many others
before shooting himself to death,
police said.
Witnesses said the young man
roamed the halls, a computer room,
the cafeteria and a classroom
shooting students indiscriminately.
Montreal police spokesman Serge
St. Laurent, reporting on casualties,
said several of those wounded were in
serious condition.
The man was armed with what
appeared to be a semi-automatic .22-
caliber rifle.
"All I know is that a crazy guy
came in here and began shooting at
anything that moved," said
Dominique Berube, 22, one of scores
of terrified students who ran from the


building.
"It's our friends who have been
killed." She said some people threw
themselves on the floor while others
stood paralyzed.
"The gunman is dead and at least
five of the injured are serious," said
St. Laurent.
He said the shooting began in a
classroom at 5:25 p.m. EST.
"He told us to stop everything,"
said student Eric Chavarie. "And
then when we looked at him we
thought it was.a joke, but he fired a
shot in the air and separated us into
two groups, the guys in one corner
and the girls in (another) corner.
"When that was done he asked the*
guys to leave, he left the girls in there.
We got outside in the hallway and for
a couple of minutes he stayed in there
and after when he got out he leveled
his gun at a group of people who were
there and he shot three or four shots"

White House gets Christmas tree


WASHINGTON (UPI) - First
lady Barbara Bush accepted the
traditional White House
Christmas tree Wednesday while
deftly preventing a potential
confrontation between two
delivery horses and Millie, the first
family's dog.
While giving a proud thumbs-
up sign for her husband's
performance at his Malta summit
with Soviet leader Mikhail
Gorbachev, Mrs. Bush scooped up
Millie to avoid any conflict with
horses Fred and Dick, who hauled
the 18-foot Fraser fir by buggy up
the White House drive.
"George is going to kill me,"she
told reporters as the English
springer spaniel escaped from the
house and threatened to steal the
holiday show. "Millie's never seen
a horse before."
Although President Bush has
reported that Millie has slain more
than a dozen unfortunate rodents


on the White House grounds, the
dog did not pay much heed to the
red ribbon-bedecked Belgian draft
horses. "It would just ruin it if you
did something," Mrs. Bush
scolded the pooch.
For their part, the stoic Fred
and Dick, who labor for the
National Park Service, appeared
unmoved.
Asked what her Christmas wish
was, she said, "Same one you all
have. I want people to be fed. I
want no war. I want people to be
well."
"I just want the same things
everyone wants," she added,
"Peace on Earth, good will toward
men - and horses."
The tree, grown in Spartans-
burg, Pa., was presented by three
brothers, Duane, Bradley and
Meade Berkey. It will be festooned
with family ornaments and
displayed in the Blue Room, the
first lady said.

Referendum on extradition asked


BOGOTA, Colombia (Reuter)
-- Colombia's House of
Representatives voted Tuesday to
put the thorny issue of extradition
on a referendum scheduled for
next month, a legislative move
that was a setback for the
government of President Virgilio

In a stormy session the House,
which is the lower chamber of
Congress, overwhelmingly voted
to include the topic on a
referendum scheduled for Jan. 21
that is already set to include
electoral reform questions.

civil aviation authorities the
anonymous call took on greater
credibility.
Lemos Simmonds had said Friday
he believed it was noteworthy that
the Extraditables had not denied the
claim made in the call claiming
responsibility.
At least 10 U.S. experts aided in
probing the crash, including officials
from the Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA), the National
Transportation Safety Board
(NTSB) and the Federal Bureau of
Investigation (FBI), a spokeswoman
for the aeronautic administration
said.
In Washington, an official in the
State Department's aviation division
said the investigators reached the
initial finding that the crash was
caused by an explosive device.
Colombia's civil aviation
authorities had sent the plane's voice
and flight recorders to Washington
for computer analysis and review by
U.S. experts.
Castano said the voice recorder
showed no sign that the pilots had
time to be aware of anything going
wrong. He said the recording showed
normal conversations with an air
control tower near Bogota.
He added the government and
airlines would step up security at
Colombian airports to avoid another
such incident.
But he warned that at present it
would be impossible to ensure that
no explosive devices were ever on
board planes.
"There are certain types of
explosives, like those of plastics,
which cannot be detected by X ray
systems," he said.
"This is a permanent concern for
world aviation."

U.S. will not protest detention in East Germany


WASHINGTON (UPI) - The
Pentagon said Tuesday it will not
protest last week's Soviet detention
of two American soldiers in East
Germany and disclosed each
superpower has detained an equal
number of military personnel on its
side of divided Germany this year.
"It's my sense from talking to our
people at U.S. Army-Europe that no
one senses that they were
unreasonably detained," Defense
Department spokesman Pete
Williams said.
The two Army officers, members
of the U.S. military liaison mission in
East Germany, were detained for
about 7 1/2 hours Friday by Soviet
military personnel near the city of
Halle, about 100 miles southwest of
Berlin.
The incident occurred on the eve of
President Bush's summit meeting. in
Malta with Soviet President Mikhail


Gorbachev.
The Army officers, who were in a
.jeep and on a routine mission to
observe East German installations,
"thought they were in an East
German housing area when their
vehicle was stopped by a man dressed
in civilian clothing," Williams said.


"He informed them that they were
in an unauthorized area. The (U.S.)
tour tried to leave but was blocked.
Another individual in civilian
clothing punctured the vehicle's left
front tire with a bayonet."
Both men in civilian clothing were
apparently Soviet military


Greenpeaceplans to sue U.S. Navy


WASHINGTON (Reuter) - The
environmentalist group Greenpeace
said Tuesday it plans to take legal
action against the U.S. Navy after
Navy ships rammed a Greenpeace
vessel as it protested a Trident
nuclear missile test off the Florida
coast.
The Navy has denied ramming the
Greenpeace ship, saying instead that
Navy vessels "shouldered" the
protest ship away from the launch
site, which was in an "exclusion


zone" forbidden to other than Navy
craft.
"Their violence and aggression
against us was not only uncalled for,
it is illegal," Greenpeace naval expert
William Arkin said at a news
conference.
Arkin said Navy ships repeatedly
rammed the vessel MV Greenpeace
Monday in waters off Cape
Canaveral, Fla., to prevent a protest
against the launch of a Trident
missile from a Navy submarine.


personnel, Williams said, and they
were later joined by a Soviet
investigating officer who "indicated
to the U.S. tour officer that that was
an overreaction, the puncturing of
the tire."
"Our people in U.S. Army-Europe
described the Soviet investigating
officer as cordial, professional and
thorough," Williams said. "No U.S.
personnel were threatened. They did
not perceive a threat to their safety."
While the two U.S. Army officers
were not in a restricted area,
Williams said, the United States does
not have any plans to protest the
detention.
It was the fifth time this year that
Soviet troops have detained U.S.
officers in East Germany. But
Williams also said U.S. troops have
detained members of the Soviet
military liaison team in West
Germany five times.

Duran wants 'Uno Mas' win over Leonard


by Frederick Bogus

FORT CLAYTON (USARSO
PAO) - "UNO MAS." The hype is
over. After nine years, World Boxing
Council Super Middleweight
Champion "Sugar" Ray Leonard
and challenger Roberto Duran
square off for the third time at the
Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las
Vegas tonight.

THE EVENT:
Leonard and Duran aren't
strangers to big fights. Leonard
sports an outstanding 9-1-1 record in
title bouts, while Duran is an
impressive 16-4-0. What needs to be
mentioned, however, is that Leonard
has a 4-0-1 mark when in
championship bouts in Vegas,
including a questionable victory over
Marvin Hagler in 1986 and draw
against Thomas Hearns in June. On
the other hand, Duran has a poor,
1-3-0 record in title fights in the
"glitter" city, including the crushing
two-round demolition he suffered at
the hands of Hearns in 1984.

THE FIGHTERS:
Both are experienced. Duran, the
only fighter who has defeated
Leonard, first fought professionally
in 1967, while Leonard made his pro
debut in 1977.
However, Leonard isn't the same
fighter he was in the past, befuddling
opponents with his amazing hand
and foot speed. Those qualities were
a big factor when he defeated Duran
in their 1980 rematch.
While Leonard's one-time
invincibility seems to have deserted
him, Duran has been fighting with
reborn vigor. He stunned the boxing
public when he decisioned WBC


Middleweight Champion Iran
Barkley in a 12-round title bout, a
victory that put him line for his long
awaited rematch with Leonard.
Both champions are more
susceptible to being hit by the "big"
punch now than in years past. But
age isn't a factor, with Leonard
coming in at 33 and Duran 38.
Leonard comes in with a sparkling
35-1-1 (25 KO's) record while Duran
sports a tough 85-7-0 (60 KO's).

KEYS TO VICTORY:
For Duran to win, he must be the
aggressor, maintain a relentless
attack, keep Leonard tied up on the
ropes and make it a "rock'em,
sock'em" affair. Duran should have
no stamina problem. He had a good
training session and says he is in the
best shape of his career. Duran might
have to take some shots to get to
Leonard, but his chin should be able
to absorb them.
For Leonard to win, he must
extend the ring and somehow regain
the form he showed against Hagler.
He used his foot work, frustrating
jabs and furious combinations to
beat Hagler. Ray must "stick and
move," make Duran chase him for at
least half of each round and flurry as
the round ends.

PREDICTION:
This fight could be the best fight of
the decade, and with these two
legends going at it, I think it will.
Both have something to prove, but
Duran has a slight edge. First, he
wants to prove he can win a big fight
against a legendary champion in Las
Vegas. Second, he wants to erase the
disgrace of the tragic "NO MAS"
bout in 1980. Leonard needs foot
speed and punching quickness to
win, and I believe he's lost too much
of both to keep Duran at bay. I like
Duran by 11th round knockout.


Roberto Duran, no stranger to big fights, sports an 85-7 record and is 16-4 in
title bouts. He is also the only boxer that has defeated SugarRayLeonard.

Arum may be indictedfor selling television rights


LAS VEGAS (Reuter) - Boxing
promoter Bob Arum said Tuesday
the U.S. Treasury Department had
threatened to indict him for selling
the broadcast rights for the Sugar
Ray Leonard-Roberto Duran fight
to a Panamanian government-owned
television attention.
Arum, who is promoting the fight
here Thursday said his New York
office received a call from a Treasury
Department agent Monday.
He said the agent claimed Arum's
company. Top Rank, was violating a


U.S. statute by selling the rights to
the fight to Channel 2, which he said
was owned by the Panamanian
government.
"They said we committed a felony
and the officers of the company
would be indicated because we sold
the rights to Channel 2," Arum said.
A Treasury Department
spokeswoman in Washington D.C.
said U.S. citizens are banned by law
from dealing with that channel.
Arum said the Treasury agent who
called his office said it had declared


Panamanian leader Manuel Antonio
Noriega an agent of Cuba Oct. 31
and therefore U.S. citizens were
prohibited from doing business with
him.
"We told the Treasury
Department that we sold the rights to
Channel 2 before Oct. 31, but they
said if we sold the rights to Channel 2
they would bring criminal charges
agaisnt us," Arum said.
Since the latest aborted coup
agaisnt Noriega failed Oct. 3, the
Bush administration has rightened


sanctions aimed at bringing down
Noriega, who has been indicted in the
United States on drug trafficking
charges. He has denied the charges.
Arum said he transferred the rights
to the fight, which he had sold for
$75,000, to Telemetro-Canal 13, a
100 percent privately-owned station.
"I just think it's outrageous,"
Arum said. "It's Mickey Mouse....
What difference does it make
whether Channel 2 or Channel 13
shows the fight?"


Arum puede ir a juicio por venta de derechos de TV


LAS VEGAS, Reuter - El
promoter de boxeo Bob Arum dijo el
martes que el Departamento del
Tesoro de los EE.UU. habia
amenazado con enjuiciarlo por
vender los derechos de transmisi6n
de la pelea Sugar Ray Leonard-
Roberto Duran a una estaci6n de
television perteneciente al gobierno
de Panami.
Arum, quien promueve la pelea a
celebrarse aqui el jueves, dijo que su
oficina en Nueva York recibi6 una
llamada el lunes de un agent del
Departamento del Tesoro.
Arum sefial6 que el agent dijo que
su compafiia, Top Rank, estaba
violando un estatuto estadounidense
al venderle los derechos de la pelea a


canal 2, que dijo pertenecia al
gobierno de Panami. DurAn es
panameiio.
Una vocera del Tesoro en
Washington dijo que a los
ciudadanos estadounidenses por ley
les estA prohibido hacer negocios
con ese canal.
Arum dijo que el agent del Tesoro
que llam6 a su oficina sefial6 que el 31
de octubre el departamento habia
declarado a Manuel Antonio
Noriega como agent de Cuba y por
lo tanto, a los ciudadanos
estadounidenses se les estaba
prohibido negociar con 61.
"Le dijimos al Departamento del
Tesoro que les habiamos vendido los
derechos al canal 2 antes del 31 de


octubre, pero ellos dijeron que si le
vendiamos los derechos al canal 2
formularian cargos en nuestra
contra", dijo Arum.
Desde que el ultimo golpe contra
Noriega fracasara el 3 de octubre, la
administraci6n de Bush ha apretado
las sanciones disefiadas para
derrrocar a Noriega, quien ha sido
enjuiciado por narcotrifico en los
Estados Unidos. Este ha negado las
acusaciones.
Arum dijo que transfiri6 los
derechos a la pelea, que vendi6 por
$75,000, a Telemetro-Canal 13, una
estaci6n de propiedad 100 por ciento
privada.
"Pienso que es ins6lito", dijo
Arum. "Son cosas de Mickey


Mouse....Que diferencia hay si es el
Canal 2 o el Canal 13 el que transmite
la pelea?"

City to be in standstill
PANAMA CITY, Panama (AP)
- Nationalistic fervor whipped up
by the government is turning the title
fight Thursday between Sugar Ray
Leonard and Roberto Duran into a
symbolic political clash.
This capital city is expected to
come to a standstill Thursday night
during the live television broadcast of
the fight. Giant screens are being put
up in low-income neighborhoods to
make it easier for fans to watch and
cheer Duran.

U.S. hockey fans losing interest in Soviets


EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -
Soviet hockey may be losing its
drawing power in North America.
Fewer than 6,000 tickets have been
sold for Wednesday night's game
between the NHL's Edmonton Oilers
and Khimik Vostresensk of the
Soviet Union.
Oiler general manager Glen Sather
said with Soviets now playing in the
NHL, the Soviet mystique may have
completely disappeared. Some other
go further than that.
"It's an unnecessary nuisance,"
said general manager Jimmy
Devellano of the Detroit Red Wings.


He said Joe Louis Arena is sold out
for Detroit's game against Khimik
next week but only because he
included the game in his season-
ticket package.
"The last thing a team needs is an
exhibition game," he said. "If it was
voluntary, we wouldn't play it.
Nobody knows this bloody team.
And this Russian thing isn't that big a
deal anymore."
He said there are nine Soviets
playing in the NHL now and the
influx from the USSR hasn't been an
overwhelming success. He praised
Buffalo's Alexander Mogilny and


Cagary's Sergei Makarov "and
that's it."
General manager David Poile of
the Washington Capitals also expects
a sell-out. He also put his club's game
against Khimik, the No.-l team in the
Soviet Union, in the season-ticket
package.
"Everything is different with every
team," he said. "We have a special
situation. We went to Russia for our
training camp this year. There is a lot
of interest because of that.
"We think sending two teams to
the Soviet Union is great and we
think this game is great."


The Calgary Flames, the other
team to take a tour of the Soviet
Union, didn't put the game in the
season-ticket package. As of
Monday, less than 8,000 tickets had
been sold.
"With two Soviets on our team, we
aren't sure what to make of it,"
Flames spokesman Rick Skaggs said.
"I think there are a lot of factors.
One, to me, is that the game is so
much earlier.
He said while the NHL now has
most of the Soviet Union's most
famous players, they are older
players.

NC State tans Redmen


GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -
North Carolina State's backcourt
of Rodney Monroe and Chris
Corchiani scored 22 points each
Tuesday night and the 19th-
ranked Wolfpack used a six-point
play to beat No. 15 St. John's 67-
58 in the fourth game of the ACC-
Big East Challenge.
Seton Hall beat Wake Forest
76-74 in overtime in the first game
of the doubleheader, giving the
Big East a 2-1 lead in the eight-
game series.
North Carolina State's
exceptional backcourt evened
things in the second game.
St. John's (5-2) led 50-44 on Boo
Harvey's 3-pointer with 11:37 to
play. He became a key figure in the
six-point play when he fouled
Tom Gugliotta of the Wolfpack
(5-1) 26 seconds later. Harvey
slammed the ball down on the
floor and was assessed a technical
foul.
North Carolina State's Mickey
Hinnant went to the foul line and
made one of two free throws. St.
John's then called a timeout and
during the stoppage of play it was
discovered that the wrong shooter


had taken the free throws.
That is a correctable error and
Gugliotta then made both free
throws and Corchiani followed by
making both free throws for the
technical.
With the possession, Corchiani
made a jumper ad the game was
tied with 109 left.
Guglotta stripped St. John's
Robert Werdam of the bn after a
rebound and the Wolpack led 52-
50 with 9:24 left. Werdam did tie
it 22 seconds later but Corchiani
nailed a 3-poiter with 8L0 left
and the Wolfpack was never
headed.
The Redmen managed just eight
points in the final 11 minutes as
they never seemed to recover from
the six-point play.
Gugliotta finished with 13
points and Werdann led St. John's
with 19.
Corchiani gave North Carolina
State a 32-31 halftime lead with a
bank shot with five seconds left in
the half and just two seconds left i
on the 45-second shot clock. He
had stood alone at midcourt
dribbling the ball while St. John's
stayed back on defense.

RP oMosit critalofBush's choice to nn PCC


WASHINGTON (AP) -
Panamanian opposition leaders are
criticizing President Bush for
ignoring the government's nominee
to run the Panama Canal, choosing
instead to name a longtime
Panamanian canal official to the post
on an acting basis.
The Panama Canal Treaties of
1977 stipulated a Panamanian
national must become administrator
of the Panama Canal Commission
on Jan. 1, for the first time in the
75-year-history of the canal.
The treaties specify that it was up
to the government of Panama to
nominate the canal administrator
and the U.S. president to appoint
him, subject to Senate confirmation.
But Bush is circumventing that
process because the United States
does not recognize the government
installed by Gen. Manuel Antonio
Noriega after the results of last May's

House passes Michigan abortion bill


LANSING, Mich. (AP) -
Unmarried girls under age 18 would
have to get parental permission
before obtaining an abortion in
Michigan under a bill passed
Wednesday by the House despite the
governor's promise to veto it.
Before passing the measure by a
65-39 vote, lawmakers rejected
nearly 50 amendments, including one
to require boys to take some
responsibility for preventing teen-age
pregnancy by wearing condoms.
The Senate, which already has
passed a similar measure, is expected
to take up the legislation before it
breaks for the holidays next week.
Veto promise
That sets up a promised veto by
Gov. James Blanchard, who has
pledged to strike down any measure
restricting abortion rights.
William Kandler, a spokesman for
Blanchard, said the governor
wouldn't change his mind despite a
survey by The Detroit News that
suggests Michigan residents favor a
parental consent requirement by a 3-
1 margin.
"I'm hopeful the governor will
think about parents and not his own
personal beliefs," said Barbara
Listing, president of Right to Life of


Michigan.
Margy Long, a spokeswoman for
Planned Parenthood of Michigan,
said she was encouraged by at least 40
signatures collected on the House
floor asking the governor to veto the
bill.
Enough votes
That is more than enough to
sustain a veto in the 109-member
House, although the anti-abortion
side says it has enough votes for an
override in the Senate.
The Legislature has overridden
only one veto in the past 38 years,
that in 1977 on an obscure
administrative rules bill.
The legislation allows a girl to
petition a probate court to have an
abortion if she believes she can't tell
her parents or if her parents refuse to
let her have an abortion.
Only two substantive amendments
were successful during the lengthy
floor debate.
Judge's OK
One would require schools to
provide information about the law
and tell girls how they could seek a
judge's permission for an abortion.
The other would allow a
psychologist or psychiatrist who has

been treating the child to petition the
court on her behalf if they believe the
girl would commit suicide if she
couldn't obtain an abortion without
telling her parents.
Opponents of the bill say it's
merely intended to make it more
difficult for girls to get an abortion,
because at least 70 percent of
pregnant minors in Michigan already'
bring at least one parent to an
abortion clinic with them.
Tragic situations
Rep. Maxine Berman said the bill
might encourage girls in tragic
situations to resort to; desperate
measures.
"This bill is meant to put the
squeeze on teen-agers with no regard
to the horrible alternatives they may
seek," said Rep. Maxine Berman.
"Can any of you live with yourself if a
woman resorts to a back-alley
abortion, or to crack cocaine to
induce abortion, or to suicide? I don't
want any more young people to die."
"We're talking about the very
bedrock of our society, family,"
countered Rep. Michael Griffin,
sponsor of the bill. "We recognize
there are families trouble, that's why
we put the judicial bypass in there."


Drugflow into Southwest reaches unprecedented levels


SAN ANTONIO (UPI) - The
flow of illegal drug proceeds through
the Southwest has reached
unprecedented levels because the
area is near major drug routes, the
House Banking Committee was told
Wednesday.
Florida's crackdown on drug
trafficking has also driven drug
dealers to Southwestern states, the
committee learned during a public
hearing on money laundering held in
San Antonio.
Rep. Henry B. Gonzalez, D-Texas,
who heads the committee, said at the
start of two days of hearings that the
San Antonio District's Federal
Reserve Bank had received $2.3
billion in excess currency between
October 1988 and this past
September alone.
Excess currency is considered by
federal authorities to be a prime
indicator of money laundering
activity and the increase now ranks
the San Antonio federal reserve
branch third in the nation in surplus
currency, trailing only Los Angeles
and Miami.
"Such an influx of cash -
particularly in small bills - is
reportedly an indicator the deposit is
the result of an illegal drug sale," said
Gonzalez, whose home is in San
Antonio.


One report on 1987 currency
surpluses in the San Antonio district
showed 88 percent of the excess came
from within 15 miles of the Mexican
border, the committee was told.
The banking committee is to
decide whether to again change the
Bank Secrecy Act of 1970, which was
the first federal effort to crack down
on money laundering. The law was
amended in 1986 and 1988.
Gonzalez suggested revamping
other laws to tighten regulations may
also help alleviate the problem and
said more money and manpower may
be the answer. But he added he was
not yet ready to make specific
recommendations.
Banks are only one resource for
laundering money, Gonzalez said,
pointing out "the proliferation of
cash-oriented storefront businesses"
that cash checks, sell money orders
and transmit funds overseas.
Gonzalez cited reports that such
businesses are responsible for
sending billions of dollars to drug
dealers in South America and Asia.
"Yet most of these businesses are
illegal, unlicensed and unregulated,"
he said. "Texas, for instance, has no
laws regulating check-cashing
businesses."
Texas Banking Commissioner
Kenneth Littlefield said money order


and check cashing firms provide a
needed service, especially in poor,
urban neighborhoods where banks
have no branches.


"Unfortunately, some of these
entities have recently provided
money-laundering services for the
drug trade," Littlefield said.


Pearl Harbor ceremonies today


PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii
(AP) - A service aboard the USS
Arizona Memorial highlights
ceremonies today to mark the 48th
anniversary of the Japanese attack
on Pearl Harbor, which plunged
the United States into World War
II.
The sunken Arizona is the final
resting place for 1,102 Navy men
and Marines killed in the early
morning attack Dec. 7, 1941. The
memorial spans the hull of the
battleship, which still flies the U.S.
flag. It is the only Navy ship not in
commission that is allowed to do
so.
The memorial service would
include prayers, presentations of
wreaths, a 21-gun salute and the
playing of echo taps.
A moment of silence would be
observed throughout the naval
base at 7:55 a.m., the exact
moment of the Japanese attack.
To end the minute of silence,


F-15 jets from the Hawaii Air
National Guard will fly over the
memorial in a "missing man"
formation.
Because of limited space aboard
the memorial, attendance is by
invitation only, but numerous
survivors of the attack and
members of various veterans and
patriotic groups are expected to be
on hand.
The National Park Service,
which manages the memorial and
its nearby visitor center, will hold
a simultaneous observance on
shore for the general public.
The park service planned
special activities Thursday,
including lectures by survivors,
special exhibits and footage of the
attack. The U.S. Navy Pacific
Fleet Band is to perform later in
the day.
A memorial ceremony is also
scheduled at nearby Hickam Air
Force Base.

However, Leonard isn't the same Both have something to prove, but fighter he was in the past, befuddling Duran has a slight edge.

Second, he wants to erase the in their 1980 rematch. disgrace of the tragic "NO MAS" While Leonard's one-time bout in 1980.
