Because they
worked here:

WASHINGTON (AP) - The
Clinton administration signaled strongly
yesterday that it expects Haiti to hold
presidential elections as scheduled next
month and President Jean-Bertrand
Aristide to step down next February.
"We expect him to leave," White
House National Security Adviser An-
thony Lake said yesterday after Aristide
implied last week that he would con-
sider the requests of his followers to
stay in power for another term.
U.S. troops entered Haiti 14 months
ago to restore Aristide to power under
the assumption that the former Roman
Catholic priest would not seek re-elec-
tion and would cede power when his
term ends in February next year.
Lake, appearing on ABC's "This
Week With David Brinkley," said
Aristide had been "ambiguous" in his
remarks and that the Haitian leader "is
in a difficult position here because
clearly he is still the most popular poli-

National security
adviser: Troops
will leave in Feb.
tician in Haiti and a lot of Haitians don't
want him to leave."
But he said the presidential elections
are scheduled for Dec. 17, and "Aristide
has said there will be an inauguration of
a new president next February."
Administration officials also sought
to play down concerns that increased
street violence in Haiti and a recent
political killing indicate a return to the
bloody lawlessness that preceded U.S.
intervention.
"I reject the fact that Haiti is unravel-
ing," Defense Secretary William Perry
said on CBS' "Face the Nation." "We're
watching with concern some of the de-

velopments in Haiti, but the U.N. force
has been quite capable in carrying our
its responsibility and has not itselfbeen
subject to attack."
Lake also said U.S. troops that are a
part of the U.N. force will leave as
scheduled after the February inaugura-
tion. Hesaidthatthere wasthe possibil-
ity of occasional visits by groups of
U.S. military engineers after that'date,
but that no final decision has beep
reached.
Two senators stressed that Aristide
must live up to his promise to leave
office. "We risked a lot of lives down
there," said Sen. Bob Kerrey(D-Neb.)
"If he doesn't support democracy we
shouldn't support him."
If he violates the agreement that led
to his return from exile, said Sen. Phil
Gramm (R-Texas) "we should demand
that he step down." Gramm is a candi-
date for the GOP presidential nomina-
tion.

Canada seeks way to turn aside TV violence

s os

Support Planned Parenthood.

;.;_____________, _________:

The Washington Post
TORONTO - Every parent remem-
bers the troubling moment when a child
first goes saucer-eyed in front of a tele-
vision set. For Maxine Lawson, the
moment came when her son Caden, not
yet 2, had his first exposure to profes-
sional wrestling on TV - "and right
away started wrestling with himselfand
his teddy bears."
So the Willowdale, Ontario, single
parent was more than willing to serve as
a guinea pig this fall for the new experi-
mental weapon of choice in the parental
defense against televised sex and vio-
lence.
It's a tiny piece of microcircuitry,
invented by a Canadian, called the V-
chip. The V is for violence.
This new technology allows par-
ents to regulate what their children
may view. By setting ceilings on the
level of permissible violence, sexual-
ity or language, each household can
customize its viewing options and
block unwanted fare.
Lawson found the device "time-con-
suming to set," but a valuable tool as
Caden gets older and more curious.
The V-chip soon could become a fact
of life across North America and con-

ceivably could ease the debate over
children's access to televised mayhem
and sex.
President Clinton and both houses of
the U.S. Congress favor legislation
mandating V-chip technology in all new
sets. The fate of the law hangs on a
budget resolution in Washington.
But Canada is likely to enter the age
of the V-chip first, and its agitation
against mostly U.S.-made television
violence makes it a fit guinea pig for the
new technology.
Earlier this year, under the terms of a
code of standards adopted by Canadian
broadcasters, the "Mighty Morphin
Power Rangers" show was yanked from
the air outright by two Canadian com-
panies.
In Canada the V-chip and a proposed
classification system for programs are
being tested in hundreds of households
and could be generally available by the
end of next year.
Canadian cable companies are eager
to install the devices in hundreds of
thousands of TV-top converter boxes,
supposedly at a dollar or less each. It
remains only for Canada's communi-
cations regulators to give their bless-
ing, awaited by the new year.

True to its Canadian origins, the V-
chip represents a potential marvel of
compromise between pressures from
two sides of the public debate over the
behavioral impact of televised sex and
violence.
Some parental groups and other anti-
violence activists here have campaigned
for more "Power Rangers"-style black-
outs of certain programming carried op
Canadian cable.
The specter of censorship is trou-
bling, though, to many in the communi-
cations business, and so is the certaii
curtailment ofadvertising revenue from
programming stigmatized by its label-
ing. Broadcasters in Canada, and the
Americans who produce most of the
televised English-language fare here,
are aghast at the trend.
At least on the surface, the V-chip
meets the test of parental choice rather
than outside censorship.
"Parents keep pleading with us:
'Help us.' But if they don't have the
tools, they can't do anything," said
Philip Lind, vice chairman of Rogers
Communications Inc., Canada's No.
I cable company. "The V chip is the
designated vehicle to solve this prob-
lem."
