24 KJ 2 W. 9 17 Associated Press photo Margaret Kemper, ex-wife of Pierre Trudeau, has been charged with possession of marijuana. Five-day forecast officers, spokesman Ron Rogers said. "She was a voluntary deportee. We returned her to her home country last night, where she is now free." The one-time rock singer was paroled Wednesday from the California Institution for Women in Fron-tera, 35 miles east of Los Angeles, after serving 15 months.

Facility superintendent Hal Tanner said Smith had been a "model prisoner." Smith was sentenced to prison after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter and three drug charges in the Belushi case. Belushi, 33, was found dead March 5, 1982, in a bungalow at the Chateau Mar-mont hotel on the Sunset Strip. Disputed gun for sale A Colt revolver that its owner claims was stolen from the bullet-ridden body of legendary Mexican revolutionary FRANCISCO "PAN-CHO" VILLA goes on the auction block this weekend. The true tale of the ivory-handled revolver is a mystery, and only Villa would know for certain whether it is the gun he was wearing on his left hip when assassins ambushed him in 1923. A New Mexico man who has owned the gun for 20 years says he's certain it belonged to Villa, was stolen from his body by one of his killers and possibly used to fire a final shot into Villa's head.

But Oscare Torres, assistant director of the cultural relations branch of the Office of Foreign Relations in Mexico City, said Mexican officials do not believe the revolver is authentic. Another who doubts the collector's story is Apolinar Frias, chief guide for the Historical Museum of the Revolution in Chihuahua, which houses Mexico's major Villa exhibits. Today, bidders will decide. The owner said he believes the gun will fetch more than $25,000. The gun is the centerpiece of a two-day Western memorabilia auction at the Texas Ranger Museum that features hundreds of items, ranging from old books and paintings to Indian artifacts.

TUESDAY MWEDNESDAY MONDAY hi 1 SATURDAY SUNDAY v7 Clearing and All Kemper would be receiving one pound of marijuana in the mail. Police then watched for the arrival of a package in Ottawa, the agency said. Kemper is scheduled to appear in court April 11. A final trial date has not been set The jet-setting former first lady divorced Trudeau in 1983 while he was still prime minister, following a stormy marriage and seven-year separation. Young and rebellious, she made headlines frequently, including when she spent a few days with the Rolling Stones rock group in Toronto.

Now 39, she married Ottawa real estate developer Fried Kemper in 1984. After producing an autobiography and a brief career as a TV talk show hostess, she retired into life as a housewife. She had three sons with Trudeau and has one son with Kemper. Golfer gets a break A golfer who failed to qualify for a tournament after interrupting her play to save a drowning child will be allowed to enter the tournament through an unprecedented exemption, the LPGA announced yesterday. i Commissioner John D.

Lau-pheimer called MARY BEA PORTER'S revival of the stricken child a once-in-a-decade occurrence that warrants such an exception to the ladies pro golfing rules.

Players had petitioned Lau-pheimer to let Porter to play despite having failed to qualify.

Rhythm-and-blues musician IKE TURNER, ex-husband of pop star TINA TURNER, was convicted yesterday on two felony cocaine charges, but was cleared of possessing the drug for sale. Turner, 55, of Los Angeles, was stopped in August by officers who said he was driving erratically. He was arrested when they found 5.6 grams of rock cocaine in his car. Jurors deliberated four hours before finding Turner guilty of cocaine possession and transportation, but not of possessing the drugs for sale.

Sentencing was scheduled April 15. In another case, Turner is charged with selling $16,000 worth of cocaine to an undercover officer in Hollywood, said the bailiff, Deputy Robert Goldsmith. Turner played backup rhythm and blues in the early 1950s before headlining with the Ikettes. Later that decade, he met and married Turner. Together they formed the Ike and Tina Turner Revue.

Their biggest hit was "Proud Mary." The couple split in 1976, and Turner went on to appear in feature films and record the 1985 Grammy-winning record of the year, "What's Love Got To Do With It?"
