Networks want control of debates NEW YORK: Four major television networks proposed on Wednesday to take the traditional election-year presidential debates out of the hands of the League of Women Voters and produce them cooperatively with "no outside funding from any source." The league, which has arranged and sponsored the debates on a regular basis since 1976, endorsed the proposal by NBC, CBS, ABC and CNN. Man claims his stomach exploded NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J.: After a bowl of homemade chili and several drinks, William Graves woke up with indigestion. Remembering a remedy his grandmother told him about, he put a spoonful of baking soda in a glass of water and drank it.

Graves, 64, wants to force Church and Dwight, the maker of Arm & Hammer baking soda, to take baking soda off the market as an antacid, saying he needed six operations to recover from the 1979 incident. Church and Dwight Inc. of Princeton, denies the product was responsible.

At least two people suffered serious injuries. The latest incidents followed days of race riots in the east German town of Hoyerswerda. The issue dominated television talk shows, newspapers and Wednesday's session of the Bundestag, the lower house of Parliament.

Foreigners flee Zaire BRAZZAVILLE, Congo: Belgium and France dispatched hundreds more troops to Zaire Wednesday to help evacuate foreigners as the pillaging and violence that has claimed at least 30 lives appeared to be spreading. Europeans who escaped to this neighboring country told of killings, rape and looting by the Zairean troops who started the rampage Monday in Kinshasa, the capital, because they hadn't been paid. The European relief group Doctors Without Borders said up to 1,750 people were wounded in violence in Kinshasa alone, and only 250 had been able to get to hospitals. Quebec w ary of proposals TORONTO: Quebec Premier Robert Bourassa on Wednesday gave a lukewarm reception to the federal government's constitutional proposals, which would designate French-speaking Quebec a distinct society. More nationalist Quebec leaders rejected the package altogether, as a sham and a dangerous step backward. Prime Minister Brian Mulroney on Tuesday unveiled a sweeping series of proposals for changes to the Canadian constitution which would, among other things, also give natives self-government and transform the appointed Senate to an elected body. Though the 28 proposals covered a wide range of issues of interest to various regions of Canada, the main aim was to head off a referendum on sovereignty that Quebec plans to hold next New peace pact made in Yugoslavia ENQUIRER NEWS SERVICES BELGRADE, Yugoslavia: Leaders of the three main parties battling over Croatian independence agreed Wednesday to seek a peaceful end to the conflict, holding out a frail hope for the latest truce in the secessionist republic. The meeting brought together the presidents of Croatia and rival Serbia with federal Defense Minister Veljko Kadijevic, whose troops have backed ethnic Serb rebels opposed to secession. The three urged a complete cease-fire in Croatia and said the crisis "must be solved only by political means." Meanwhile on Wednesday, at an extraordinary meeting of the United Nations Security Council in New York, the Bush administration charged Yugoslavia's military with unacceptable aggression against Croatia. "A lot of blood has already been lost, but it is time for all parties to commit themselves to resolve their differences in the future in a peaceful way," Secretary of State James Baker said. "All parties, especially the Serbs and Croats, need to stop the fighting," he said. In exceptionally strong terms, Baker said the government of Serbia and the Yugoslav federal military "bear a special and indeed growing responsibility for the for the grim future which awaits General Information 721-2700 NEWS DEPARTMENTS Managing Editor, Thomas E.
