Ex-mimister may succeed Trudeau

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports

OTTAWA (AP) - The early favorite
to succeed Pierre Trudeau as Canada's
next prime minister is a silver-haired
Toronto lawyer who has been out of
politics since he quit Trudeau's Cabinet
nine years ago.
Former Finance Minister John Tur-
ner, 54, has been keeping his silence
ever since, playing the role of exiled
prince and heir apparent.
TURNER WAS in the sun in Jamaica
this week, caught off guard like many
other Canadians by Trudeau's announ-

cement Wednesday that he will retire
as soon as the Liberal Party can
organize a convention aad choose his
successor.
Through a friend in Montreal, Turner
issued a statement saluting Trudeau's
"long tenure of office" and saying he
will announce March 16 whether he will
be a candidate. Few people expect him
to say no.
A date for the convention will be set
this weekend, probably for late June.
Whoever the Liberal Party picks as its

leader will become prime minister
automatically; but will have to call
national elections by next February.
RECENTLY THE Progressive Con-
servatives, under new leader Brian
Mulroney, have been running 20 to 30
percentage points ahead in public
opinion polls. But that could change
dramatically once the Liberals have a
new leader.
The most likely date for an election
would be in November - at about the
same time as Americans go to the polls
to elect a president. But the new prime
minister could also call a snap election
right after taking power, or if the polls
look dismal could wait until the bitter
end in February.
Turner's strongest challenger for the
Liberal leadership appears to be
Energy Minister Jean Chretien, a
likeable political veteran.
Chretien's big obstacle is a party
tradition of alternating between fran-
cophone and anglophone leaders. After
Trudeau, it's now the English-speaking

Shell
removed

(Continued from Page 1)
left the long-forgotten momento in a
garage, which was torn down after he
moved to a new residence in town. The
shell found its way into a rubbish heap
in the back yard and before the neigh-
borhood knew what was happening, the
75th Ordinance Detachment Division
was dispatched from Selfrage Air For-
ce base to remove the shell.
Before the division arrived, however,
the Ann Arbor police, who were first
notified by the neighbor who found the
shell, removed it by tying a string to
one end and pulling it from the
backyard. The Air Force division
carried it away.
Officials from the Air Force division
said the only thing that may have
prevented the shell from exploding was
a broken detonator.
Lillie, however, insists the whole row
was over nothing. The shell was nothing
more than "two pieces of cast iron
which had rusted together over the
years," he said. It was "no different
than an empty pipe."

Gemayel, Assad complete talks
Lebanese President Amin Gemayel completed two days of talks with
Syrian President Hafez Assad in Damscus yesterday and Lebanon's state
radio said Gemayel had agreed to cancel the Israeli-Lebanese troop with-
drawal agreement.
Gemayel said his three rounds of talks with Assad were "quite excellent.
But he called off a news conference he had earlier scheduled at the state
guest palace in Damascus and made no other comments.
An official Syrian spokesman said Assad, whose government has been
supporting Shiite Moslem and Druse militias against Gemayel's gover-
nment, told Gemayel that Syria will "assist Lebanon in its efforts to
safeguard its freedom, its Arab identity, and the unity of its land and
people."
The Syrian spokesman said Assad "stressed during the talks the well-
known Syrian positions toward the Lebanese crisis." He said the talks were
"positive and fruitful" and that there would be tangible results "within the
next few days."
In Paris, the French Foreign Ministry said that France "cannot alone
bear the responsibility of the international community in Lebanon" but
stopped short of saying it would withdraw its troops from Lebanon.
Meese faces Senate committee
WASHINGTON - White House counselor Edwin Meese, declaring he is
not a "political firehorse," pledged yesterday before the Senate Judiciary
Committee to act independently if confirmed as attorney general.
Meese seemed well-prepared and confident on the first day of hearings on
his nomination by his close friend, President Reagan. But skeptical
Democratic senators greeted him with a barrage of questions about whether
he can forget his conservative political ties and serve as "the people's
lawyer."
The 52-year-old former prosecutor insisted he can act in an "impartial, in-
dependent manner" as the nation's top law enforcement officer.
Chairman Strom Thurmond (R-S.C.) wasted no time in airing a host of
questions about Meese - including his personal finances and alleged
political favors - that have been raised since his nomination Jan. 23 to
replace Attorney General William French Smith, who is resigning as the top
man at the Justice Department.
Point by point, Meese, now serving as Reagan's No. 1 adviser, testified
there is no impropriety in his personal or professional affairs.
O'Neill will seek one final term
WASHINGTON - House Speaker Thomas O'Neill, the quintes'sential
Irish-American politician, has a dream of capping his political career as
ambassador to Ireland and says he will seek only one more term in the
House.
"'Ireland must be heaven because my mother comes from there,' " a
jovial O'Neill sang to reporters following reports that he would consider
resigning his seat to be ambassador to Ireland or serve in a Cabinet post in a
Democratic administration.
The speaker said he would seek only one more term in the House. "When a
Democrat wins, I'll stay with him at least 100 days so I can help guide him,"
he said, adding that he would stay longer than that if "He'd get down on ben-
ded knee, which I doubt."
Later, he said "my plan is to be here two more years," through 1986.
He said he "could possibly" be interested in a Cabinet position in a
Democratic administration.
Prosecutors in barroom rape
case subpoena news reporter
FALL RIVER, Mass. - Prosecutors in the trial of six men charged in the
barroom rape of a young mother said yesterday they will subpoena a news
reporter who wrote that one defendent told him the woman wanted sex and
"kept coming on to me" in the tavern.
Bristol County District Attorney Ronald Pina asked Boston Herald
reporter John Impemba to appear Monday in Superior Court to answer
questions about his interview with defendent Victor Raposo. The Herald
published the story yesterday.
The Herald said Raposo's story differed sharply from testimony given
earlier this week by the 22-year-old woman, who testified the defendents
grabbed her, threw her on the pool table at the Big Dan's tavern in New Bed-
ford last March 6 and raped her as two other men tried to force her to per-
form other sex acts.
But Raposo, 23, told the reporter that the woman "kept coming on to me"
and that she initiated sex with defendent Daniel Silvia.
"They make this girl sound like a goody two-shoes, and she's not," Raposo
was quoted as saying.
Ltk between caffeine and birth
defects in doubt, study shows
WASHINGTON - A new federal study found that caffeine did not cause
birth defects in rats unless the pregnant mothers drank the equivalent of at
least 18 cups of coffee a day, the Food and Drug Administration said yester-
day.
Although' the findings seemed to cast doubt on the seriousness of caffeine
as a potential cause of birth defects, the FDA said it stands by its 1980
recommendation that pregnant women avoid the stimulant or use it
sparingly.
"It would be wrong to say we are now reassessing our position," said
Bruce Brown, an FDA spokesman.
