S. African govt. to propose
landowning rights for. blacks
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - The government said yesterday it
will propose next year that blacks be allowed to own land for the first
time in 72 years, but the laws will not lift restrictions on where they can
A prominent white critic of the government's racial policies said the
announcement was "important to black people in an emotional way" but
was "not a dismatling of apartheid."
National police headquarters in Pretoria said officers shot a black man
dead in a a battle with stone throwers in the black Crossroads squatter
camp outside Cape Town and fought black rioters in five other Cape
Province townships late Tuesday and early yesterday.
A statement said nine blacks were wounded and 31 arrested later
yesterday when police quelled six outbreaks of arson and three of stone-
throwing, mostly in Cape Province.
About 900 people have been killed, nearly all of them black, in 15 mon-
ths of violence against apartheid, the official policy that reserves
privilege for South Africa's 5 million whites and denies rights to the 24
million blacks.
Kennedy announces candidacyk
BOSTON - Joseph Kennedy II, ready for a "long, hard battle," an-
nounced yesterday he will run in 1986 to replace retiring
speaker Thomas O'Neill in the House seat that was the first rung of John
Kennedy's ladder to the presidency.
Kennedy, son of the late Sen. Robert Kennedy, told a packed news con-
ference that government should be used as a "catalyst" to provide affor-
dable housing, energy, and health care.
Kennedy gained attention during the oil shortage years by founding
Citizens Energy Corp., a non-profit company that supplies low-cost fuel
oil to poor families.
"The old way of government of simply taxing and spending, taxing and
spending is no longer valid," said Kennedy.
Vietnam returns U.S. dead
HANOI, Vietnam - Vietnam yesterday turned over to U.S. officials
human remains believed to be those of seven American servicemen listed
as missing in action during the Vietnam War.
Vietnamese officials delivered the remains three days after completion
of an unprecedented joint excavation at the spot where an American B-52
crashed during a bombing raid over what then was North Vietnam.
In a short, simple airport ceremony, the Vietnamese also handed over
to the U.S. military delegation "material evidence" of 14 other American
servicemen, including identification tags.
Officials on both sides said they hoped the excavation and return of
remains marked the beginning of much greater cooperation in accoun-
ting for the 1,797 Americans still listed as missing in action in Vietnam.
Ngo Hoang, a Foreign Ministry official, said the remains in the seven
crates were found around Hanoi and the nearby port of Haiphong, which
were prime targets of an intense U.S. bombing campaign in December
1972. At least 27 American planes were shot down and 93 airmen were
killed, captured or reported missing.
U.S. says Israeli spy data
dealt with Arab technology
WASHINGTON - The classified military documents Israel allegedly ob-
tained from accused spy Jonathan Jay Pollard dealt with moderate Arab
governments and included information about their radar-jamming
techniques and other electronic data, an informed U.S. official said
The documents dealt with Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia, and other
"friendly" Arab governments, detailing their military capabilities as
well as their methods of countering terrorism, the official said.
While U.S. counterintelligence informaton on Libya and other radical
regimes is shared with Israel under the strategic cooperation and other
agreements, U.S. assistance to Arab countries considered friendly to the
United States generally is withheld, the official said.
Israel thus was able to obtain data not available through normal U.S.
channels, said the official, who insisted on anonymity.
"An Israeli source here said, meanwhile, "no one was spying on the
United States. If there was anything it was to gather information on
'Pro-Bush' poll angers rivals
WASHINGTON - A Republican Party poll that included questions
about Vice President George Bush's presidential prospects was drawing
howls of protest yesterday from his potential rivals who saw the survey
as a tilt toward Bush in the 1988 race.
There also was a question whether Bush's political action committee
would violate federal election laws if it paid part of the cost of the poll.
Aides to Bush's rivals were contending the vice president's political ac-
tion committee would violate federal law if it paid more than $5,000
toward the cost of the survey. A Bush adviser said that was an incorrect

interpretation of the law.
Frank Fahrenkopf chairman of the Republican National Committee,
said he got an angry call from Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, who
demanded, "What the hell is going on?"
The chairman said he assured Dole, who has his eye on the 1988
presidential nomination, that the party would be "candidate neutral" in
the race.
Dole told Fahrenkopf the survey was "paid for and commissioned by
the Republican National Committee to Make George Bush President of
the United States.

" Coca-Cola Clothing. Along with in-
troducing new Coke this year, Coca-
Cola came out with its own line of
casual wear that imitates Benetton.
The clothes range in price from a $30
rugby shirt to a $45 pair of jeans, and
every piece bears the soft drink's
label. "All of them are almost gone,"
said Debbie LaBaeu, a sales clerk at
Hudson's in Briarwood Mall.
"They're so popular because you
usually don't see a cola company
coming out with clothing."
" Calvin Klein's Obsession. By far
the most popular perfume among
college-aged shoppers, Obsession
costs $28.50 per 1.7 ounces in the
splash bottle. "It's certainly going to
be a classic," said Judy Spaly-
Belanger, a make-up consultant. "It's
selling so well because of the fragran-
ce and not just because of the Calvin
Klein name,", she added. "Obsession
is not like Georgio, which is only a fad
because of its popularity in Beverly
" Swatch Watches. "Swatches," for
short, are durable, casual wrist wat-
ches with multi-colored plastic bands
and different face designs. Elizabeth
Reed, a clerk at Lord & Taylor's, said
the $36 watches have "taken off so
well because of their ads on M-TV...
Last week we went through a new
shipment of about 10 to 11 watches,
which is a lot."
" Taped books. Publishing houses
have been scrambling to cash in audio
cassettes of their books and poetry.
The cassettes cost anywhere from $6
to $25 and include best-sellers, "how
to" books, children's books, and
classics. The classic books include
authors such as Emily Bronte and
children's classics like The Wind in
the Willows.

Popart Company, these inch-high toy
