Woman extradited in Belushi case
TORONTO (UPI) - Cathy Evelyn Smith, a former
singer who once admitted injecting a fatal "speed-
ball" of heroin and cocaine into comedian John
Belushi, was ordered extradited yesterday to Los
Angeles to stand trial for murder.
Declaring there was enough evidence to commit
the Toronto woman to trial, County Court Judge
Stephen Borins ordered an extradition be carried out
within 15 days and also ordered that she be held in
custody until extradition.
DEFENSE attorney Brian Greenspan said he
would decide later yesterday whether to appeal the
order. He has 30 days to appeal, but according to the
Canada-U.S. extradition treaty she can be extradited
within 15 days if an appeal process has not been star-
ted. Greenspan said he would also decide whether to
file for a writ of habeas corpus that would set her
Smith, who had been free on $75,000 bail, was escor-
ted out of the courtroom and placed in the West
Detention Center. She also faces 13 drug-related
charges as a result of Belushi's death in 1982.
Greenspan said Smith, who appeared unmoved by
the ruling, was in relatively "good spirits" because
"she realized there was a strong possibility this
result would occur."
In Los Angeles, Detective Russell Kuster, an in-
vestigator in the Hollywood division, said he expected
Smith to appeal the order, which she fought for more
than a year.
"IT'S NbT over yet," Kuster said. "We expect her,
lawyer to appeal and a final ruling to be made within
15 days. But we still expect to bring her back."
Los Angeles District Attorney Robert Philibosian
said in a prepared statement, "The decision by a
Canadian court today to extradite Catherine Evelyn
Smith is an important victory in our 18-month legal
battle to bring her to justice."
Smith, a former singer and songwriter, is charged
in California with having administered a fatal over-
dose of heroin and cocaine to the star of the "Satur-
day Night Live" television series and movies such as
"Animal House." Belushi died in a Sunset Strip hotel
room March 5, 1982, of a drug overdose.
Doubts arise over transplant'wonder
BOSTON (AP) - A widely used drug
that dramatically improves the success
of heart, liver and other organ tran-
splants can cause irreversible kidney
damage and should be given with great
caution, a new study concludes.
Ironically, the drug, called
cyclosporine, is used larged in kidney
transplants. The researchers cautioned
that in this operation, cyclosporine's
benefits "may be more than offset over
the long term" by damage to the tran-
THAT prediction is likely to be con-
troversial. Follow-up studies of kidney
patients show that so far, at least,
cyclosporine seems to give them a bet-
ter chance of having a healthy, working
kidney. It may also be possible to
minimize the damage by using smaller
doses of the drug.
It has been widely credited in recent
years for vast improvements in the suc-
ces of liver and heart transplants. The
latest study was conducted at Stanford
University, which has a large heart
However, Dr. Robert Merion of the
University of Michigan Medical Center,
who has conducted a four-year com-
parison study of cyclosporine in kidney
transplants, said doctors have long
recognized that the drug can cause
some kidney damage. And he still
believes it is highly effective.

But Bush proved that the issue can
cut both ways when, in answering a
question Tuesday, he drew attention to
his longstanding differences with the
ptesident over abortion. Bush said he
favors letting a woman obtain an abor-
pon if she was raped, if she was an in-
cest victim or if her life was in danger.

would say, but I think again you've got
to look at a lot of circumstances, how

tion only if a woman's life is in jeopar-
dy, And he gave abortion opponents
hope earlier this year pledging to do
whatever possible to end legalized
abortion in the United States.
Mondale has been equally straight-
forward in his support for choice. "I
believe the decision whether to have a
child is a very personal one, and I agree
with the majority of Americans who are
pro-choice," Mondale says. "We can all
hold our personal views on abortion,
while agreeing that the government
should have no role in limiting the
choices available to women. I opoose
any constitutional amendment or
legislation that would allow others to
restrict or limit a woman's right to
choose an abortion."
Even before Ferraro was put on
the defensive, it was clear that, at a
minimum, abortion would be a recurring
issue in the background of the cam-
paign. Charges have been traded bet-
ween the Mondale-Ferraro and
Reagan-Bush campaigns over religion
and~ politics, how Christian teachings
should fit into public policy.
Both the pro-abortion and anti-abor-
tion movements look on the presidential
election as crucial to their cause.'
Nanette Falkenberg, executive direc-
tor of the pro-choice National Abortion
Rights Action League, said her
organization is emphasizing the fact
that whoever is elected in November is
likely to shape the course of the
Supreme Court for the next 40 years.
Some aging justices are likely to retire
during the next presidential term.
"The outcome of this year's presiden-
tial election may well determine
whether abortion remains legal in this
country," she said.
But Falkenberg and David
O'Steen, executive director of the
National Right to Life Committee,
disagree over the role that abortion
plays in voting behavior.
