break yesterday morning when workers in a local substation, sent the of-

went out with a -"terrible pop and bright flash," according to one worker,
as a breaker circuit kicked out in the main power plant. Tragedy? Panic?

and the others had conspired to
install a Communist government in
the service of a foreign power, which
the prosecutor said was "Soviet
Russia and Communist China."
TESTIMONY also linked Aquino
and one of his co-defendants, Ber-
nabe Buscayno, with the murder of a'
village official in Tarlac, Aquino's
home province 50 miles north of
Manila. Buscayno is the alleged com-
mander of the New People's Army,
the military wing of the Communist
Party of the Philippines.
While rejecting the case against
him, Aquino did not deny dealing
with Communists in some ways and
said a contact with anti-government
insurgents was needed to ensure his
political and physical survival.
"Talk to politicians in central
Luzon, and if any of them says he
neverhad anything to do with the
NPA (New People's Army)," he
would be a liar, Aquino's wife Corry
said in an interview yesterday.
Five years ago most Filipinos
expected Aquino to succeed Marcos
at the end of his second term in- 1973.
BUT THE TERM didn't end. Citing
what he called near-anarchy and
danger of a Communist rebellion,
Marcos proclaimed martial law on
Sept. 21, 1972, and extended his
Aquino was among hundreds ar-
rested in the first few days of martial
law, including other members of the
disbanded Philippine Congress.
When the military .commission
began taking evidence against
Aquino in August 1973, the ex-senator
made an impassioned plea for a civil
trial that brought applause from his
supporters in the packed courtroom.
It was typical of the flamboyance
that marked Aquino's career. He"
returned from his war coverage in-'
Korea to become at 22 the country's
youngest mayor ever. At 21 he was
the youngest-ever governor of Tar=
lac. Six years later he was elected
senator, a national office, two weeks
before the statutory minimum age of
35 and retained the office on the
strength of a 5-4 vote by the Electoral

In a grim performance, Perkins as a slightly nutty American forces his wife (SOPHIA LOREN) to go eOlng

Planned pan dahood
The hope of a nation was dashed yesterday when it was announced in
Tokyo that Lan Lan the panda is not pregnant after all. Since last June
when Lan Lan's mating with beau Kan Kan was nationally televised a
special telephone number has been operating at her home, the Ueno Zoo,
to take calls from fans all over Japan checking on her progress. News-
paper columnists and television commentators alike have speculated on
the chances of Lan Lan becoming the first panda outside China to give
birth to a cub in captivity, but yesterday the guessing stopped. Despite
nipples that puffed, then deflated, then puffed again - a sign of pregnan-
c3- Lan Lan's nipples shrank a final time recently causing officials to
shed a tear. At a "panda conference" yesterday, a zoo spokesman dis-
pensed the sad news: "Regrettably we have to give up hope about a baby
for Lan Lan this time," he said. We weren't surprised. Could you do it
right on national television?
