Senators talk as recalls continue
LANSING (UPI) The Senate
Democrats used their slim majority to
push through a controversial legislative
redistricting plan early yesterday, but
hours later on apparent agreement to
toil the bill in the House seemed to be
The Senate in a raucous and tense
late-night session approved on a
straight party line vote, 19-18, a
measure to redraw district boundaries
to give Democrats an advantage in the
next election. Backers said the bill will
result in 21 Democrats in the 38-
member Seante and will also allow the
party to solidify or increase its 63-47
margin in the House.
HOWEVER, shortly before the final
vote, House Speaker Gary Owen (D-
Ypsilanti) flanked by House
Republican Leader J. Michael Busch of
Saginaw, said there had been an
agreement reached to stall the bill in
the lower chamber. Owen said the
agreement turned on Republican
pledges to oppose recalls.
Owen said GOP legislative leaders
had "agreed they will take an active
stance against recalls." Owen said the
House Democrats will push redistric-
ting only if convinced "the Republican
(party) leadership and the Republican
legislative leadership have not done
what they promised to do and that is
The action on the redistricting plan
was taken while Macomb County voters
ousted Sen. David Serotkin (D. Mount
Clemens) for supporting this year's
temporary 38 percent income tax hike.
He was the second Democratic senator
ousted in little more than a week and
the two recalls threaten Democratic
control of the chamber.
"THE DOMINO effect could very
well happen," said Dan Powers, the 25-
year-old organizer of the successful
campaign to recall Serotkin, referring
to speculation that success in ousting
two lawmakers would fuel the 16 recall
movements underway against others.
Macomb County voters, by more than
a 2-1 margin Wednesday, ousted the 44-
year-old Mount Clemens attorney. The
Board of State Canvassers Monday will
meet to certify the final tally - 25,992
recall votes to 11,737 votes to keep him
Former state Rep. Kirby Holmes, a
Utica Republican, has announced he
will run for the seat and an election date
for sometime in the next two months
will be set soon. Serotkin defeated
Holmes last fall.
GOV. JAMES BLANCHARD, ob-
viously disturbed at the loss of two
democrats in the state Senate, con-
ceded he "did not do a good enough job
in explaining" the temporary 38 per-
cent income tax increase that prompted
the recall votes.
Blanchard said he erred by not going
to Pontiac, where voters recalled Sen.
Phil Mastin Nov. 22, and to Mount
Clemens, where Serotkin was ousted
Wednesday, to tell voters why the tax
hike was necessary.
"We stayed out by request and by
strategy," he said, explaining that
some advisors felt a trip to the
senators' districts before the recall
elections might have done more harm
Now that both have been recalled,
Blanchard admitted he fears the recall
fever may get hotter in other districts
where 16 other lawmakers were
targeted for removal.
And, because Republicans in
Macomb County contributed to the
campaign to recall Serotkin, Blanchard
said members of his party may be con-
sidering recalls of their own.

Druse judge murdered in Beirut
BEIRUT, Lebanon - A man pretending to seek legal advice walked into
the apartment of Lebanon's top Druse religious judge and assassinated him
with a silencer-equipped pistol yesterday. The army, fearing revenge
killings, clamped a curfew on Beirut and warned that citizens carrying arms
would be shot.
Druse gunners hammered Lebanese army positions south of Beirut after
the assassination and snipers killed a French peacekeeping soldier near the
line separating Moslem west and Christian east Beirut. But a truce held in
Tripoli between loyalists and rebels in the Palestine Liberation
The Druse judge, 60-year-old Sheik Halim Takieddine, was a political.
moderate and was killed exactly one year after the Druse leader Walid
Jumblatt and his wife were wounded in a car bombing just one block from
Takieddine's west Beirut home.
There was no claim of responsiblity for Takieddine's murder.
But at a news conference in Damascus, Jumblatt blamed the killing on the
Druse's rightist Christian rivals, whom he claimed were operating in west
Beirut under the cover of Lebanese authorities.
"He was killed by criminals belonging to fascist aangs," Jumblatt said.
"We condemn the behavior of the Lebanese authorities, who are allowing the~
Phalangists to infiltrate into west Beirut and do whatever they like under the
cover of legitimacy.
Anti-Sandinistas ready to talk
WASHINGTON - The leaders of five Nicaraguan rebel groups were
reported yesterday to have told U.S. envoy Richard Stone that they will halt
their guerrilla war if the leftist Sandinista government moves toward
A senior U.S. official, who spoke only on condition that he not be identified,
said shortly after Stone concluded a series of meetings Wednesday night and
yesterday morning in Panama City, Panama, that "the anti-Sandinista
groups are prepared to open negotiations with the Sandinista government.
"The main thing is they've all gotten together and they agreed that if they
can get some significant steps on the part of the Nicaraguan government,
they will stop the fighting," the official said.
Because "all this is very new. . . very current," he said, it was uncertain
how the message would be delivered to Sandinista authorities in Managua.
The U.S. official said the rebels "are willing to suspend paramilitary ac-
tivity in Nicaragua if the Sandinista government takes specific, credible
steps to implement the democratic promises they made to the Organization
of American States in 1979."
Astronauts may get extra day
SPACE CENTER, Houston - The Spacelab astronauts lit the night sky
with electron beam firings yesterday and said they would welcome an extra
day in orbit that project officials were considering giving them.
Flight director Chuck Lewis said a decision would be made this weekend
on extending the flight from nine days to 10 to squeeze as much as possible
from the world's most ambitious international space science expedition.
Scientists at mission control were wowed by the display produced by the
firing of streams of electrons into space to learn more about the magnetic
forces and electrically charged gases around Earth. The show, relayed to
the ground by live television, looked like a celestial fireworks display.
"Wow, that looks stupendous," said one scientist in the control room.
King Hussein blames Syria for
terrorist actions in Jordan
AMMAN, Jordan - King Hussein blames Syria for a series of attacks on
Jordanian diplomats and terrorism in Amman that has broken the calm
prevailing in Jordan since the 1970 Black September offensive against the
"The security situation has deteriorated. A climate of terror in the Middle
East has spread throughout the area and come to downtownAmman," ob-
served one Western diplomat recently.
In Amman, three bombs were discovered in suspicious parcels. A booby
trapped car near the British and U.S. embassies was found loaded with 90
pounds of TNT and two butane cylinders.
Police with mounted machine guns patrol Amman's streets much more
frequently now. People are searched and scrutinized during visits to gover-
nment offices. Western diplomats are taking safety precautions of their own.
"We have information that Syria wants to destabilize internal security in
Jordan by recruiting certain elements for acts of violence and terrorism,"
Hussein said in a recent interview in a Kuwaiti newspaper.
Gemayel optimistic after sununit
WASHINGTON - Lebanese President Amin Gemayel concluded urgent
talks with President Reagan yesterday by voicing hope of "dramatic
movement toward stability, security and peace" in his ravaged, occupied
Gemayel and Reagan emerged from a round of White House meetings
with little evidence of progress toward a long-sought breakthrough on how to
remove all foreign forces from Lebanon and keep alive a budding national

Gemayel, in a departure statement at the White House, said he and
Reagan "found ourselves in full agreement" on the need for complete with-
drawal, but provided not insight into how that goal will be accomplished.
