President Mikhail Gorbachev
presided over the 542-member
Supreme Soviet, which reconvened
at a time of widespread turmoil and
discontent caused by the often con-
flicting demands of the country's
more than 100 ethnic groups and the
state economy's failure to meet
many basic needs.
Many people were looking to the
4-month-old legislature for solu-
tions. It was given expanded powers
and a full-time political role by Gor-
bachev's drive for "democratization."
The legislators met in a hall at the
Kremlin and heard government offi-
cials give a bleak assessment of re-
cent economic performance.
Deputy Premier Lev Voronin told
them, "The dynamism of the econ-
omy this year has been steadily

falling in many major areas, social
tension has increased an the national
economy has been losing its bal-
"Against the background of these
trends, deficits on the consumer
market and in production have
Trying to parry shortages of
goods ranging from tea and meat to
salt and matches, the government
plan for 1990 calls for a 20 percent
increase in factory-made consumer
goods, Voronin said, with the total
produced by converted defense plants
growing by almost 35 percent to
$61 billion.
According to Pavlov, the gov-
ernment of Premier Nikolai
Ryzhkov plans to raise $83 billion
in new revenues and trim expendi-
tures by $10.3 billion to cut by half
the 1989 government budget deficit
of $192 billion next year.

pany President Peter Coors said. It
has not been determined whether beer
under the name Stroh's will be
brewed in Golden, but the Colorado
city will be headquarters for the en-
tire operation.
Stroh will not operate as a sepa-
rate subsidiary, Coors said. "The
current thinking is, we will consoli-
date both operations, and everything
will be operated by Coors Brewing
Peter Stroh said his company had
neither the size nor the money to
compete with larger publicly held
Stroh spent an estimated $21
million promoting its major brands,
Stroh and Stroh Light, in 1988,
while Anheuser-Busch spent an es-
timated $204 million promoting
Budweiser and Bud Light, Beer
Marketer's Insights said.
"I think you'll find a lot of peo-
ple will be glad the suspense is
over," said an anonymous employee
entering the company yesterday after
the announcement of the deal with
Coors. "It's a relief."
Several other Stroh employees
declined comment. One man said he
didn't know how to react because he
didn't know yet what would become
of his job.
Stroh workers face a holiday sea-
son of suspense waiting for word on
who will be laid off and who will
stay to manage the company's re-

maining businesses.
The company also cut expendi-
tures such as sponsorship of auto
racing, National Audubon Society's
television specials and community
programs, including annual Freedom
Festival fireworks over the Detroit
The company recently launched
an advertising campaign stressing
the family's background as brewers
with roots in Germany more than
200 years ago.
Stroh said that made the decision
to sell difficult, but caused the fam-
ily to lean toward dealing with
Coors, also a family-run operation.
Coors said he was nottable to say
at this time which of the brands
would be retained and which dis-
The purchase is part of a drive
begun in the early 1980s by Coors
to expand from a regional to a na-
tional brewer. The company now
sells its products in 49 states and
Washington D.C.
The sale to Coors would create a
Big Three of U.S. brewing, said
Allan Kaplan, analyst 'with Merrill
Lynch in New York.
Kaplan said Anheuser-Busch
will finish 1989 with an estimated
43 percent of the U.S. beer market,
followed by Miler with 21.8 percent,
Stroh with 10 percent and Coors
with 8.7 percent.

row's baby zoo animals, from Aruba
Island rattlesnakes to Grevy's zebras,
are but a gleam in the eyes of
zookeepers and aquarium directors
who are playing matchmaker this
week for endangered species.
"We're playing God, all of us are.
T ait here and say who should do
what and when they should do it,"
said Ron Young, an official of the
Aierican Association of Zoological
Parks and Aquariums.
"It's important if we want to con-
tinue on some semblance of what we
were living with originally on this
earth. All of us realize we can't save
tIe world, but we save as much of it
as possible."

Young, who works for the
Mesker Park Zoo in Evansville,
Ind., coordinates the nation's captive
breeding of black palm cockatoos, an
endangered large black parrot from
Papua, New Guinea.
He and about 1,000 other offi-
cials from 140 zoos and aquariums
from around the country are meeting
at a downtown hotel for a week to
match, borrow and trade endangered
mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and
amphibians for breeding.
In some cases, the animals are
extinct in the wild, and zoos are try-
ing to build a captive population
that can be reintroduced into nature
some day.

Syrian bombardment sends
'message' to Christians
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Syrian gunners fired more than 80 shells into
the Christian enclave yesterday, violating a 2-day-old cease-fire that has
drawn 1 million refugees back to Beirut. An Arab League mediator urged
both sides to honor the truce.
Police reported no casualties in the barrage that hit pine woods near the
mountain towns of Beit Meri and Ein Saadeh, 10 miles northeast of
Christian forces commanded by Gen. Michel Aoun did not fire back.
There was no official explanation for the Syrian bombardment of the
thinly populated mountain slopes.
But an informed Moslem source, speaking on condition of anonymity,
said it was designed as "a Syrian message to Aoun that the truce could fail
apart if the Christian media do not stop their campaign against the
Lebanon's Parliament is expected to meet in Saudi Arabia on Saturday
to seek political reforms aimed at ending the 14-year-old civil war.
Residents begin Hugo clean up
CHARLESTON - Banks reopened, a trickle of mail was delivered and
trash collection resumed in this hurricane-battered city yesterday, but a
cold downpour hindered efforts to restore power and worsened damage to
roofless homes.
It was far from a normal workday in Charleston , where electrical
service was restored to hospitals but hot meals and water for drinking and
bathing were still in short supply.
At Isle of Palm, a barrier island were martial law was declared to
preserve order, residents boarded ferries for their first look at destruction
wrought by Hugo since they were evacuated Thursday. A bridge to the
mainland and Charleston was wiped out.
Residents were allowed to fill one suitcase each before they were asked
to leave again. The shattered houses made the one-time seaside paradise
look like a war zone.
"It looks like what happens after artillery fire," said Tom Harper, a
retired Air Force officer.
Dollar drops in world trade
WASHINGTON- The U.S. dollar plunged on world markets yester-
day as the United States and its major allies demonstrated determination to 4
push the currency's value lower in a bid to solve America's trade deficit
The sell-off began in hectic trading in Tokyo and was later matched in
European and New York markets in what traders described as a route for
the dollar.
The well-coordinated moves were timed to back up a blunt statement
expressing displeasure with the dollar's rise in value this year. The state-
ment was issued late Saturday by finance officials from the United States,
Japan, West Germany, Britian, France, Canada and Italy.
Finance officials pronounced themselves pleased with the impact of
their efforts Monday and said they stood ready to take further coordinated
efforts if the markets try to push the dollar higher again.
Court frees jailed mother
WASHINGTON- The District of Columbia Court of Appeals on
yesterday ordered a lower court to release a Washington physician jailed
more than two years in a custody case involving her daughter.
The court ordered a D.C. Superior Court to judge to sign the release
papers for Dr. Elizabeth Morgan. However, it left open the possibility of
further consideration of her former husband's challenge to a law, signed
over the weekend by President Bush, designed to free her.
She was jailed in August 1987 for contempt of court after refusing to
produce her daughter for a visit with Dr. Eric Foretich, her former husband
and the girl's father.
The appeals court has been weighing the requests of Elaine Mittleman,
who represents Foretich, and attorneys for Morgan, who filed papers seek-
ing the woman's immediate release on Saturday, the same day Bush
signed the law.
Holy Mackeral! Clams recovered
CONCORD, N.H.- Robert Howley has a fish story to tell that even

he didn't believe at first.
Howley was reunited with his wallet last week after a four-year sepa-,
ration. It was found in 30 feet of water, 200 yards off the shore of Lake
Winnipesaukee - right where he had dropped it in 1985 while trying to,
fix his boat's engine during a fishing outing.
A scuba diver who was looking for a light that had fallen off an an-
tique boat found the wallet.
Howley said at first he didn't believe it when Robert Oeullette called to
tell him he'd found the wallet, which contained $480 in soaking bills. For
years, Howley's friends had teased him, joking that they had found the
But Ouellette convinced Howley that this was no gag.
"When he explained to me exactly where he had found it, I got so ex-
cited I headed right up there," said Howley, who lives in Seabrook. "I'm
very appreciative."

West German authorities arrested
16 men in the October raid on an

Those released included a Jor-

danian, Marwan Khreesat. Panorama
said Khreesat is a known bomb-
maker and a widely believed by
British and U.S. investigators to
have made the Lockerbie bomb and
several others.
"There were major blunders by
the West Germans ... (who) let the
group's bomb-maker go in very
strange circumstances," reporter
Gavin Hewitt said.
One of the men still held on
bombing charges unconnected with
Flight 103 is Hafez Dalkamoni, the

top aide to Popular Front leader
Ahmed Jibril.
Jibril has denied his organization
had any role in the attack but
Dalkamoni said Jibril often built and
used the type of bomb that blew up
Flight 103.
Hewitt said, without disclosing
the source, that he had been told
Khreesat, now hiding in Jordan, was
a double agent working inside the
Popular Front for Jordanian intelli-
gence. He said that this was appar-
ently why the West Germans freed
Previous West German denials
that there is evidence linking
Dalkamoni and the October raid to
Flight 103 have prompted specula-

cism of its security operation.

The U.S. Federal Aviation
Authority last week fined Pan Am
$630,000 for lapses in security pro-
cedures at Frankfurt and London's
Heathrow Airport. But the agency
said it was not charging that any on
the breeches contributed to the
Lockerbie disaster.
