Calif. mayor faces
SAN DIEGO (AP) - Indicted Mayor Roger
Hedgecock surrendered to San Diego County mar-
shals yesterday and was booked, fingerprinted and
released on recognizance pending a Sept. 28
arraignment on a 15-count criminal indictment.
The 38-year-old Republican took over the mayor's
office 16 months ago from Pete Wilson, who used the
post as a springboard to a U.S. Senate seat. Vic-
torious over 18 other candidates in a special election
to replace Wilson, Hedgecock now is running for a full
term against fellow Republican Dick Carlson, 43, a
former television anchorman turned bank vice-
THE EFFECT of the 15-count indictment on the
Nov. 6 balloting and Hedgecock's career is uncertain,
city leaders said yesterday.
I think everybody is reconsidering their position,"
said Lee Grissom, president of the San Diego Cham-
ber of Commerce. "I seriously doubt" that he can
survive the political crisis.
"Even if he does, he'll have a difficult time being a
real leader, an issue determiner for the city of San
Diego," Grissom said. "He's going to have a hard time
being a point man this city deserves.. . ana o course,
his attention is going to be distracted by his legal
"HE'S BEEN a superb mayor. Imagine what could
have been accomplished had this not gone on, and:
imagine what would have happened in the next six
months," said Phil Blair, co-owner of the local Man-
power temporary services office and a member of
Hedgecock's campaign finance committee.
The felonycounts against Hedgecock stem from
allegations of illegal contributions to. his 1983 cam-
paign. The indictment Wednesday also named jailed
financier J. David Dominelli, former J. David
executive Nancy Hoover and the mayor's former
plolitical consultant, Tom Shepard.
The indictment alleges that the four conspired to
finance Hedgecock's election with funds from
Dominelli's now-bankrupt moneytrading firm that
were purportely laundered through Shepard's con-
A LAWYER, Hedgecock had outpolled an incum-
bent in 1976 to become a county supervisor at age 28.
He has not lost an election in the eight years since.
Hedgecock's administration generally has been
regarded as successful. He lobbied for and won state
and federal funds to expand this city's trolley system,
instituted a growth-management plan and
spearheaded a drive to build a downtown convention
Hedecock's oppontent, Carlson, has trailed him in
all the polls. In a radio station telephone poll yester-
day morning, Hedgecock would still carry 64 percent
of the vote "if the election were held today," accor-

GRAND RAPIDS (UPI) - President
Reagan hailed Grand Rapids as "one of
the best success stories in the Middle
West" yesterday and the thousands
who turned out to meet him responded
with cheers for "four more years."
Accompanied by home-town hero and
former President Gerald Ford, Reagan
trumpeted the economic recovery and
told a crowd of up to 15,000 people of the
economic difficulties he inheritied from
the Carter administration.
"I CAN'T imagine a better place to
start my Michigan campaign," Reagan
said to a crowd of banner-waving en-
thusiastic supporters who halted him at
least twice with chants of "four more
"Your belief in each other and your
faith in the future are making Grand
Rapids one of the best success stories
of the Middle West," he said.
"One of the great tragedies of our
time was seeing the American Jerry
Ford made 'well and strong again
brought to its knees by people who did
not kgnow then, and who do not know
today, what common sense and leader-
ship are all about."

Protesters were silent during the 35
minute appearance by Reagan. Their
placards carried slogans such as
"Reaganhood robs from the poor to
feed the rich" and "Minimum wage is a
hell of a way to starve."
Reagan paused before reciting his
prepared speech to express his "sorrow
about the cowardly suicide attack" that
killed 23 people in the U.S. Embassy in
Beirut. He told the crowd "I'm proud,

Investigation clears Meese
WASHINGTON - A special prosecutor said yesterday a five-month in-
vestigation of White House aide Edwin Meese revealed no criminal activity.
Special prosecutor Jacob Stein, in a 385-page report to a special court, said
an exhaustive five-month investigation of the White House counselor co
cluded there was "no basis" for prosecuting Meese for any of the1
allegations against him.
Stein found nothing criminal in Meese's activities - including his failure
to report on his financial disclosure statement a $15,000 loan from a personal
friend, Edwin Thomas, who later got a White House post.;.
The report said there was no evidence Meese and his wife were involved i
inside trading when they used the $15,000 to purchase stock in Biotech, a
company owned by a friend.
The prosecutor's findings clear the way for the Senate to consider Meese
as attorney General next year if President Reagan is re-elected and again
nominates him for the post, as he has said he would do.
Druse militia kill 13 in Lebanon
TEL AVIV, Israel - Druse militiamen seeking revenge for a guerrilla
ambush stormed into a' Shiite Moslem village in Lebanon yesterday,
throwing hand grenades and firing machine guns at residents, Israeli of-
ficials said. The military command reported 13 Lebanese killed and 22
Israeli officers said the attack in the east Lebanon village of Sohmor was a
reprisal for an ambush there Wednesday night in which four of the Israeli
trained militiamen were killed when guerrillas fired a rocket-propelled
grenade at their command car.
An Israeli army spokesman said 18 of the villagers wounded yesterday;
most of them men suffering chest and stomach wounds, were flown by
helicopter to hospitals in Israel. Six were listed in critical condition.
The Israeli military command in Tel Aviv said the militiamen belonged to
the South Lebanon Army, which Israel has equipped and trained to replace
its forces in the south.
Military sources who spoke on condition they not be identified said yester-
day's attack took place while the militia commander and Israeli officers
were in the village, but that they were unable to prevent the slaughter.
The incident was seen as a setback for Israeli efforts to build a well-
disciplined fighting force that would pave the way for an Israeli withdrawal
from South Lebanon.
Slower GNP growth reported
WASHINGTON - The gross national product grew at a moderate 3.6 per-
cent annual rate during the past quarter, only half as strong as the previous
three month period, the government said yesterday, but officials believe it
may be enough to improve the job market.
The "flash" projection by government economists did not include the ef-
fects of the United Auto Workers strike against General Motors that could
reduce growth to 3.3 percent if it lasts until Sept. 30.
But the slowdown was not as severe as some had feared and most
economists said the current level is just what is needed to sustain the current
Commerce Department chief economist Robert Ortner said the pace is
still strong enough to ease the unemployment rate downward in the year
Mine hits ferry near Suez
CAIRO, Egypt - A Saudi passenger ferry on its way to pick up Moslem
pilgrims hit "an underwater explosive" near the Suez Canal yesterday,
raising to 19 the number of ships damaged by mysterious mines in the Gulf
of Suez and Red Sea.
No one was injured in the explosion, which occurred as French officials
announced their contingent of a multinational force had ended its search for
mines in the area and was returning home. U.S. forces withdrew from the
search earlier this week.
Shipping sources in Suez City, at the southern end of the Suez Canal, said
Egyptian naval units rushed to the Saudi-owned Belkis I passenger ferry af-
ter the captain signaled his ship had hit "an underwater explosive."
A Lloyd's of London insurance company spokesman said the ferry's hull
was not penetrated by the explosion, but the vessel was "tilting somewhat,"
and dead in the water, 20 miles to the south of Suez City.
Yesterday's explosion was the first since Aug. 15 when the Cypriot
freighter Theoupolis hit a mine.

LOS ANGELES - The father of soul singer Marvin Gaye pleaded no con-
test yesterday to voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of his-son
during an April 1 argument.
A no contest plea takes the same criminal penalty as a guilty plea, but
cannot be used against the defendant in any subsequent civil action.
Defense attorney Michael Schiff said the charge was reduced from first-
degree murder on a plea bargain and added that he believes he will be able
to persuade the judge not to send Gaye to prison.
Gaye, 70, a retired apostolic minister who underwent surgery in May for a
non-malignant tumor in his skull, could face up to 13 years in prison when
sentenced Nov. 2 by Superior Court Judge Gordon Ringer, Deputy Distriot
Attorney Dona Bracke said. '
Wearing dark glasses, Gaye entered the plea during his Superior Court
arraignment before Judge Ronald George.
Schiff estimated that if Gaye were sentenced to the 13-year maximum, he
would be eligible for parole in about 61/2 years.
