As far as the chancellor is concerned, the issue is settled." CROSSE POINTE FARMS, Mich. - Chrysler Corp.

He planned to present the Soviet leader with a peace scroll signed by more than 1,000 Australian schoolchildren. "But I won't be talking to him about Chernobyl because I think he might be a little upset about that at the moment," he said.

Police said tension also was high in eastern Lebanon's Bekaa Valley, where Syrian and Lebanese soldiers separated a pro-Syrian leftist militia and Iranian-backed Shiite fundamentalists who were fighting for control of the town of Mashgara. 1 Failure by the two sides to carry out an exchange of hostages imperiled the truce that ended four days of fighting in the Bekaa Valley, police said.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported Sunday that the AMA Members Retirement Plan holds more than $2 million worth of stocks related to alcohol in its $72 million portfolio.
