OTTAWA (AP) - The Canadian government is considering
negotiating a trade pact with the United States, doing away
with almost all barriers to trade across the world's longest
undefended border.
But free trade with the American can be a highly charged
issue in Canda. In two of the most important elections in the
country's history, Liberal governments were booted out of of-
fice for proposing to eliminate the tariff barriers erected by
Tory prime ministers-to protect Candadian industry.
"NO TRUCK Nor Trade With the Yankees"-the suc-
cessful Conservative election slogan in 1911-is still well-
remembered here.
So the new Tory government of Prime Minister Brian
Mulroney is stepping very cautiously, asking for comment
from all sides before deciding-probably in May or
June-whether to begin bargaining with the Americans.
"We're going to examine this very carefully, before we bet
any bundle on it," Mulroney told a recent new conference. "It
conjures up all kinds of scarecrows and myths and problems,

pipe out its trade barriers

. I

and what I think we have to do is try to depoliticize some of
NEVERTHELESS, THE movement toward free trade is to
be one of the top items on the agenda of Mulroney's March 17-
18 meeting with President Reagan in Quebec City.
Officials say it is too soon to sign an agreement, but the two
leaders are likely to lend their endorsement to the basic idea.
One way the Canadian government is trying to defuse
emotions is by avoiding the very term "free trade," talking
instead about "securing and enhancing access to markets"
in the United States.
James Kelleher, Mulroney's minister of international
trade, says Canada's chief concern is not tariffs-most are
disappearing anyway as a result of international negotiations
under the General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs-but
other barriers to Canadian exports.
Chief among them are "Buy American" preferences in
many states and procedures for levying "countervailing"
duties if an American industry can prove it is being harmed
by Canadian imports.

John Irving's The World According to
"TWO YEARS ago I got a phone call
- it was at least three months before
The World According to Garp was
released - and they wantedus to have
the first campus showing here in Ann
Arbor," he said. So many people came
to the showing, he was forced to turn
hundreds away.
Another reason for Hollywood's in-
terest in Ann Arbor is that directors like
to talk to film students at the Univer-
sity. "They find them the most literate
and knowledgeable students
anywhere," Beaver said. "They're
gratified by the kind of knowledge and
intelligent exchanges that they are able
to have about film."
Though Beaver thinks the variety of
films showing in Ann Arbor help make
the city a mecca for moviegoers, he
doesn't think it's the sole reason.
"I DON'T think you can gauge why
Ann Arbor became, outside the city of
New York, the best film community in
the United States in terms of ac-
cessibility to film" Beaver said. "You
can see more films in New York, but not
as easily as you can in Ann Arbor. And
someone who stays here for four years
can see just about every great motion
picture made. It's just one of those
things that happens."
A driving force behind the reputation
is the many film groups in Ann Arbor.
The student film societies have been

showing campus films for more than a
quarter of a century.
Herb Eagle, Film and Video Studies
department director, said people from
various parts of the country began to
see Ann Arbor as a center of film
culture long ago. He said Ann Arbor
was a place where students could come
to know film as a serious art form and
commentary on culture. "And that, in
turn, spurred the growth of the student
film societies," he said.
THE STUDENT cinema groups, such
as Cinema Guild and the Ann Arbor
Film Cooperative, run older, classic
films students would not normally get
to see in a conventional theatre. In
many instances, a double feature of
related films, like two starring Hum-
phrey Bogart or James Dean, will be
scheduled together.
"And it's not everywhere in the coun-
try that you can show 'old movies' and
get the kinds of audiences that the film
societies get here," Eagle said.
"There's an appreciation for those
films in Ann Arbor."
Sit-in trial
(Continued from Page 1)
"The way the case is set up, we are
guilty of trespassing," said Braine.
'(Their indecision) indicates that the
jury is taking our individual moral
decisions into account and not just
judging the trespassing."
IN AN ATTEMPT to show the jury
that there are valuable peacetime ap-
plications for military research, the
prosecution brought in Emmett Leigh,
a University professor of electric and
computer engineering.
Leigh testified that while working on
a Department-of-Defense-funded
project on radar, he and his colleagues
improved holography. This won them a
nomination for a Nobel Prize.
Defense attorney Donald Koster sum-
med up his case in his closing
"I would love to bring in a witness
that would say not one of the seven was
in the laboratory, except that would be
a lie," he said. "They were trespassing.
But what they did was an act of gocial
responsibility, not a criminal act."
In Noah's closing statements, he told
the jurors that the defendants were
"well-intentioned, but criminal acts
committed with good intentions do not
exonerate you." He called the
protesters "misguided and disruptive"
and told the jury to "do your duty and
find them guilty as charged."

Lebanese, Israelis clash at line
BEIRUT, Lebanon-The Lebanese and Israeli armies fought a two-hour
tank and artillery battle yesterday across Israel's defense line in south
Lebanon. One Israeli soldier was reported killed.
Reports from the area said four Moslem militiamen and at least one
soldier on each side were wounded. Israeli military sources said two
militiament died in the exchange, the third confrontation in nine days bet-
ween Lebanon's army and the Isreali forces that are withdrawing after
about three years of occupation.
A Lebanese army communique said the Israelis tried to push north of their
defense line yesterday morning behind a screen of tank-cannon fire, and
Lebanese soldiers returned the fire "with all available weapons."
The Isreali military command in Tel Aviv, however, said its soldiers were
chasing suspected guerrillas in a "routine operaion" when they were fired
upon by Lebanese army units stationed in Kawthariet Assayad. One Israeli
was killed, it said, and "our forces returned the fire."
O'Neill says Dems oppose MX
WASHINGTON-House Speaker Thomas O'Neill said Thursday that
despite an intensive lobbying campaign by President Reagan, at least 200
House Democrats are prepared to vote to kill funding for the MX missile.
And while sources said House Armed Services Committee Chairman Les
Aspin is prepared to vote for continued MX funding later this month, O'Neill
said he met with Aspin and had not yet given up hope that the Democratic
chairman could be persuaded to vote no.
"He left me clouded to the extent that I am still working on it," O'Neill told
Aspin, from Wisconsin, was persuaded by arguments that killing the
powerful, long-range nuclear missile just after U.S.-Soviet arms control
talks convene March 12 in Geneva would undermine the American
negotiating position, the sources said.
The Reagan administration has been lobbying heavily for continued MX
funding, with Secretary of Defense Casper Weinberger and Secretary of
State George Schultz appearing before congressional committees Thursday
to urge support for the weapons system.
Amrak may escape budget cuts
WASHINGTON-The Senate Budget Committee yesterday agreed to save
Amtrak and some community development programs, setting the stage for a
budget cutting showdown on education, job training, and Social Security
cost-of-living hikes.
Despite agreeing to freeze military spending in fiscal 1986 and modifying
or freezing other programs, the budget-cutting effort was running nearly $10
billion behind chairman Pete Domenici's (R-N.M.) goal yesterday, and the
committee was left with very little "wiggle room" if it intends to hit the
deficit-reduction target without adding taxes.
The committee still faced the task of considering reductions in student
loans, termination of the Job Corps, and a Domenici-sponsored freeze on
regular Social Security cost-of-living increases-something Reagan op-
"A case can be made for almost every part of this budget," Domenici said
as he lost vote after vote. "But I think we have to look at it from a different
perspective. I approach it from a standpoint of trying to get $50 billion to $60
billion in deficit reduction."
Chernenko misses celebration
MOSCOW-President Konstantin Chernenko, who has made only two brief
appearances on television this year, failed to attend a Bolshoi Theater
celebration with most other top Kremlin leaders yesterday,
The 73-year-old Chernenko has been widely reported to be suffering from
Chernenko has not made any major public appearances this year. He was
shown on television at an awards ceremony Dec. 27 for writers and on Feb.
24 appeared briefly voting in national elections.
Four days later, television showed him receiving credentials as a deputy
to the Russian Federation's nominal parliament.
He looked frail and had difficulty breathing on all three occasions.
Premier Nikolai Tikhonov and Mikhail Gorbachev, considered the No. 2
man in the Kremlin hierarchy, led Politburo members on to the Bolshoi
Theater stage for the celebration of one of the Soviet Union's biggest
national holidays.
U.S. official confirms identity of
narcotics agent slain in Mexico
MEXICO CITY-Ambassador John Gavin officially confirmed yesterday
that one of two bodies found in plastic bags on a Guadalajara ranch was that
of kidnapped U.S. narcotics agent Enrique Salazar.
Gavin said the American drug agent found slain had been "brutally
beaten" before he was killed, and vowed the United States and Mexico will
exact payment in an intensified war on drug traffic.
Medical specialists had determined earlier that the other body found on
the ranch, where police shot it out last week with alleged drug dealers, was
that of Camarena's pilot, Alfredo Zavala Avelar.
Both men were abducted a month ago in Guadalajara, which is considered
a center of the Mexican drug trade.
Mexican police went to the ranch, about 60 miles north of Guadalajara,
last Saturday looking for clues about Salazar, 37, and Zavala. They were
greeted by gunfire and five people were killed, including a police officer.
The bodies were found, in the bags in a field, when police went back to the
ranch on a tip Tuesday night.
