Fighting persists in Lebanon
BEIRUT - Israel's jets raided Palestinian guerrilla bases yesterday, its
surrogate militia shelled towns in south Lebanon, and fighting betwech
rival Shiite Moslem militias spread to Beirut.
President Elias Hrawi said he would ask Syria to withdraw the 40,000
soldiers it stations in Lebanon if his new government can establish
authority over a nation factionalized by 14 years of sectarian civil war.
Police said 20 people were wounded in fighting between the Syrian-
backed Shiite militia Amal and the pro-Iranian Hezbollah, or party of
God, in Beirut and south Lebanon.
The South Lebanon Army, a predominantly Christian militia that
helps Israel patrol its border "security zone" in south Lebanon, shelled the
Shiite market town of Nabatiyeh and nearby Hadatha village with 155mmn
howitzers. Eleven people were reported wounded.
* WASHINGTON (AP) - The
White House, dealing with after-
shocks from the Malta summit, at-
tempted to quell criticism from con-
servatives yesterday and play down
any differences between President
..Bush and Vice President Dan Quayle
,on the Soviet union.
On another summit topic, the
,dministration said the meeting en-
-.abled Bush to look ahead to possible
,budget savings two years from now
,as a result of likely arms reductions.
White House press secretary Mar-
Sn Fitzwater said that if an agree-
ment is signed next year to slash
,.ng-range nuclear missiles. "I think
pt hat could have an impact, certainly"
9n the budget that would be submit-
je~d the following January.
Bush, on his first day back in the
' oval Office, got a standing ovation
from his Cabinet, summoned to the
White House for a report on his two
C'dys of talks with Soviet President
Bush ignored questions from re-
pprters about Quayle, who has of-
ifered a more guarded and skeptical
#ost-summit assessment of the So-
viets than Bush has.
Quayle, in an interview with The
'Washington Post, called the Soviet
'Union "a totalitarian government"
and said "I don't think they've
changed much in foreign policy."
Ar Bush, on the other hand, said
-After the summit, "We stand at the
threshold of a brand new era of U.S.-
.-,pviet relations." He also said Gor-
pachev's endorsement of reforms in
.astern Europe "absolutely mandates
,sew thinking" by the West.
Explaining the difference, Bush's
national security adviser, Brent
-Scrowcroft, said, "We have an ad-
Ministration that is very closely
aligned but I think it probably not
possible for people to speak literally
with one voice."
"And there may from time to
time be difference of perspective but
there's no difference in the substance
of the policies we're pursuing."
For months, Quayle has voiced a
harder line than Bush toward the So-

Experts oppose legalizing
wiretapping in Michigan
LANSING- Legalizing wiretapping in Michigan to assist in the
war on drugs will inevitably lead to its use in investigating numerous
other crimes, two national experts on electronic surveillance told
"Trying to prevent expansion of wiretapping to new crimes - There
is no task that I fail at more often," said Morton Halperin, director of
the Center for National Security Studies and head of the Washington D.
C. office of the American Civil Liberties Union.
"If you pass it for drugs you will be back here next year and the year
after to expand it to new crimes," Halperin noted.
Halperin said evidence has failed to show that wiretapping reduces
crime in New York and New Jersey, where it is legal.
Rep. Perry Bullard, House Judiciary Committee Chair (D-Ann
Arbor), is opposed to wiretapping and is quashing a Senate-passed bill
that would permit its use in the crackdown on drugs.
Millions flee famine in Ethiopia
KHARTOUM, Sudan - A feared exodus of people threatened by
new drought and famine in Ethiopia has begun, with an estimated
15,000 refugees already in Sudan, a Sudanese official said.
Abdel-Rahman Sirr-el-Khatm, Sudan's commissioner for refugees,
told a government newspaper that Sudan already must cope with more
than 2 million refugees, mostly from Ethiopia, Chad and Uganda.
The Ethiopians are mainly from the provinces of Tigre and its
neighbor, Eritrea, both embroiled in long civil wars that have hampered
recovery from massive famines in 1984-1985 that killed an estimated 1
Tigrean relief specialists estimate that 90 percent of the crops have
failed this year in the province's eastern portion because of lack of rain.
More than 2 million people are said to be in danger of starvation, and
some are dying already.
Official says bomb blew up jet
BOGOTA - Investigators have concluded that a bomb hidden under
a seat destroyed a Colombian jet that crashed last month and killed all
107 people aboard, an official said yesterday.
Carlos Simmonds, the minister of government, did not say who
may have planted the bomb, but suspicion has fallen on Colombia's
drug traffickers, who have bombed banks, restaurants, hotels, schools
and other public places.
"All of the technicians who took part in the investigation agreed
without exception that it was the work of criminals and that an
explosive device was placed in a seat near the gasoline tanks," Lemos
The Bogota daily El Espectador, quoting the report b.y Colombia's
Civil Aeronautics Authority, said the bomb was in seat 15F, along the
right side of the plane.
El Espectador said authorities had found that a person who bought a
ticket boarded the plane and then got off before it left.

MIAMI (AP) - Jurors in the
trial of the police officer whose
shooting of a Black motorcyclist
sparked three days of rioting must
now decide if the officer fired coldly
and deliberately, or in self-defense,
attorneys said in final arguments
The manslaughter trial of
officer William Lozano was expected
to go to the jury late yesterday after
almost seven weeks of jury selection
and testimony closely followed by
an entire city.
The shooting resulted in three
days of fires, looting and violence.
And police bought new anti-riot
equipment and put all officers on no-
tice in case the verdict touches off
renewed racial violence.
Twice before in this decade,

Black reminded jurors they should
concentrate only on the facts of the
case, not on potential unrest caused
by their verdict.
"This case has nothing to do with
racial prejudice," said Black. "Your
verdict has meaning only in its truth

DETROIT - This is not your father's De Lorean. The 404 Toys
"R" Us stores nationwide are selling a pint-sized version of the De
Lorean car featured in the movie "Back to the Future Part II" under a
licensing agreement between Universal City Studios Inc. and the former.
"By the time I give up on them, it will be 'Back to the Future Part
71,' John De Lorean said yesterday.
In the original movie and the sequel, stars Christopher Lloyd and
Michael J. Fox use a De Lorean modified with, among other things, a
"flux capacitor" to travel through time.
The original De Lorean - a gull-winged door, stainless-steel body
sports car - was produced in Belfast, Northern Ireland, from 1981 until
October 1982, when the British government shut down the plant after:
9,000 of the cars were made.
Toys "R" Us is hoping the publicity surrounding the movie and
recent gift-buying trends hold up through the Christmas season.
