Reagan hails U.S.,
Canadian trade pact

WASHINGTON (AP) -
President Reagan hailed a tentative
U.S.-Canadian free trade agreement
yesterday that would eliminate all
tariffs between the two countries as
a historic pact beneficial to both
nation's economies.
"Now, in addition to sharing the-
world's largest undefended border, we
will share membership in the
world's largest free trade area,"
Reagan said in a statement released
atthe White House.
'Treasury Secretary James Baker
IiI and Canadian Finance Minister
ichael Wilson said at a joint news
cdnference they were confident the
agreement would be approved by the
U:S. Congress and Canada's
parliament. Both described it as a
win-win situation," good for both
countries.
U.S. Trade Representative
Clayton Yeutter said some tariffs
would be dropped upon
implementation of the treaty and
others would be phased out over five
td ten years.
Baker said the tentative agreement
also eliminates other trade barriers
and will improve trade in
agriculture.
Baker described the negotiations,
which he said culminate a 100-year

effort to reach a trade agreement
between the two countries, as
"taxing and at times overwhelming."
Wilson called the proposed pact
"a dramatic step toward
implementing ap new trade
relationship" and it said it "is a
powerful signal a g a i n s t
protectionism and for trade
liberation."
U.S. and Canadian negotiators
had settled on the general framework
for the pact linking the world's two
largest trading partners just before
the midnight Saturday deadline that
had been set for submission of the
agreement to Congress.
Neither side gave many details of
the agreement at the news
conference.
The president said the pact will
remove all Canadian tariffs: secure
improved access to Canada's markets
for U.S. manufacturing, agriculture,
high technology and financial
sectors; improve U.S. security by
opening access to Canadian energy
supplies, and offer new investment
opportunities.
The president telephoned
Canadian Prime Minister Brian
Mulroney yesterday afternoon after
returning from his weekend at Camp
David, Md., according to White
House spokesman Marlin Fitzwater.

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press reports
Aftershock kills one in L.A.
LOS ANGELES - A sharp aftershock from last week's severe
earthquake jolted Southern California before dawn yesterday, causing at
least one death and dozens of injuries, damaging buildings, knocking out
power and sending jittery residents into the streets.
The quake, centered in suburban Rosemead about eight miles northeast
of downtown Los Angeles, registered 5.3 on the Richter scale of ground
motion, said Don Kelly of the U.S. Geological Survey in Golden, Colo.
The 3:59 a.m. quake was the 22nd aftershock registering more than 3.0
since Thursday's quake, which measured 6.1 on the Richter scale and
caused six deaths and more than $75 million in damages.
Yesterday's shock was felt 40 miles west of Los Angeles in Ventura
County and 100 miles south in San Diego. It was followed by three
tremors measuring 3.0 or more within 4 hours.
Foes rip schools' sex ed. plan
KALAMAZOO - Foes of a proposed sex education program in
Kalamazoo schools have handed out leaflets protesting what they say is
its failure to teach young people the value of restraint.
The Rev. Nate White says the Life Issues Network he heads sees the
sex education course as anti-family and anti-life.
About 12,000 copies of a tabloid, titled "The Link," distributed to area
homes on Saturday, were published by Life Issues Network, a group
organized to protest the sex education curriculum as deficient.
The school's proposal is being considered for use in the fifth through
eighth grades.
School trustees have not taken final action on the plan. Before the
course material is used in classrooms, revisions will be made by
administrators, teachers and the schools' district-wide parent group.
Lhasa protest leaves six dead
LHASA, Tibet - Chinese authorities imposed a curfew yesterday and
tried to stop at least one busload of foreign tourists from leaving this
Tibetancapital after pro-independence demonstrations that killed at least
six people.
Dissidents proclaimed the six as martyrs. They put up signs saying
those who died in Thursday's demonstration "died for all the Tibetan
people, not for themselves."
Nineteen policemen were seriously wounded in that demonstration,
held to protest the arrests of participants in an earlier, Sept. 27
demonstration.
Buddhist monks at the Sera Monastery outside Lhasa said they hoped
to stage another protest on Wednesday, the 37th anniversary of the day
that Chinese communist troops moved into Tibet to annex it in 1950..
The sera monks said no protester fired a weapon.
Bush praised by Polish leader
WASHINGTON - Polish Solidarity leader Lech Walesa had just
lavishly praised Vice President bush in Warsaw as a man who "deserves
to lead a great nation," when Bush was asked how it felt to have the
equivalent of a campaign endorsement from one of the world's best
known figures.
"The question is, how many relatives does he have in Iowa?" the vice
president replied with barely a pause. "That's the only thing I want to
know."
Bush's jocular reference to the state that will pick early delegates to
next year's Republican National Convention demonstrated the extent to
which his official nine-day visit to Europe occurred against a backdrop of
domestic politics.

Couple takes world bicycle
tour instead of honeymoon
BELOIT, Wis. (AP) - Roger and Betsy Kalter have been married
more than five years, but they're still pedaling home from their
honeymoon.
The couple, near the end of a world bicycle tour, have sailed the Nile
River, hiked the Himalayan Mountains in Nepal, lived on a Malaysian
tropical island and Kayaked in Glacier Bay, Alaska.
Roger, 37 and Betsy, 32, of Marietta, Ohio, met during a bike ride and
ice cream social sponsored by the Marietta Bicycle club in 1981. Roger, a
journalist who cycled across the United States in 1978, had been planning
his worldwide ride for several years.

Since May, 1982, the Kalters have logged 26,348 miles in 30
countries, traveling inland by bicycle and crossing bodies of water by
airplane.
The Kalters expect to complete the trip Oct. 17 with a final 50-mile
leg into Marietta and a celebration with friends and relatives.
