16-THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 17,1987 -THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL. Joker gone Aquino loses top aide MANILA, Philippines (AP) — President Corazon Aquino announced today her top aide, Executive Secretary Joker Arroyo, was leaving the Cabinet, but said the government would "hold fast" to ideals he represents. She praised the 61 -year-old human rights lawyer as "a man of unwavering fidelity, proven courage, patriotism and true nationalism." Arroyo's removal was long demanded by military groups, including those who staged a bloody abortive coup on Aug. 28. That triggered the resignation of the 25-member Cabinet on Sept. 9 and plunged the Aquino administration into the gravest political crisis of its turbulent 18 n.onth. The announcement came after Mrs. Aquino met with Gaston Sigur, U.S. assistant secretary of state for East Asia and Pacific affairs. He gave her a letter from President Reagan reaffirming U.S. support of her government. The president named Catalino Macaraig, Arroyo's deputy, as her new executive secretary. Before joining Mrs. Aquino, Macaraig, 60, was President Ferdinand Marcos' deputy justice minister and vice presi- dent of a mining company. Mrs. Aquino also announced that speechwriter Teodoro Locsin, who has also been criticized by the military as a Communist sympathizer, had resigned as special legal counsel. She said he would remain as a government consultant. The 54-year-old president called Arroyo's departure "our loss and the nation's." Arroyo had been Mrs. Aquino's closest adviser and was widely believed to be the second most influential figure in the administration after the president herself. Arroyo resigned along with the rest of the Cabinet last week, but it had been expected many Cabinet members would be renamed to their posts. On Wednesday, Mrs. Aquino accepted four resignations, including those of Vice President Salvador Laurel as foreign secretary and Finance Secretary Jaime Ongpin. Laurel said he refused to accept another Cabinet posti because of "fundamental differences" with the administration. Laurel and Arroyo had been at odds virtually since the Aquino administration began on Feb.! 25, 1986. Nations sign first ozone treaty MONTREAL (AP) — Mostafa Tolba was celebrating the conclusion of the world* s first ozone treaty with a glass of champagne when a Canadian legal expert walked into his office. The lawyer, John Allen, paused for a moment, gave Tolba a hug and said simply, "Without you ... " A plant biologist and former Cabinet minister under Egyptian Presidents Camel Abdel Nasser and Anwar Sadat, Tolba is executive director of the United Nations Environment Program. Educated in London and an avid reader of Agatha Christie mysteries, Tolba first alerted UNEP member countries in 1974 to the danger that man-made chlorofluor- ocaroon compounds might be depleting the planet's ozone shield. On Wednesday, 24 nations and the European Economic Community signed the Montreal Protocol, agreeing to reduce chloirofluorocar- bon consumption by SO percent before the end of the century and force manufacturers to find substitutes for products such as refrigerator coolants, aerosols; foam cups and insulation. More nations, are expected to sign later. '"This," Tolba said of the treaty, "is the culmination of 13 years' work." Tolba, 64, said the achievement is particularly great because scientific investigation has not yielded specific amounts of ozone damage — only estimates. Controls will mostly benefit future generations since chlorofluorocarbons linger in the atmosphere for up to a century. Participants agreed earlier this year on a scientific consensus that 3 to 7 percent of the ozone layer has been depleted, and each additional 1 percent loss could result in a 5-percent increase in skin cancer. A hole the size of the continental United States has been discovered in the ozone umbrella over the Antarctic. ANN LANDERS Make sure before taking the plunge Dear Ann Landers: Two years ago I met a man at work. I was an exotic dancer and he was a steady customer. I had a rule against going out with men who came into the club, but I fell for "Ben" like a ton of lead and decided he was too good to pass up, so I made an exception and we have been living together ever since. Ben and I became engaged in September of '86. We planned to marry in October. I knew that my job was putting a strain on our relationship so I quit. This was not an easy decision, Ann. I was making over $40,000 a year. Since then I've been bouncing from job to job, very unhappy because I really loved dancing. Here's my problem: Ben and I made an agreement. I would forget about going back to dancing and he would stay out of strip joints. I've learned from good authority that he has not kept his part of the bargain. I also discovered that he is involved in making copies of hard-core porno films and selling them to guys at work. When I confronted him with the receipts for the films, he promised to quit doing it, but I'm not sure I can trust him. My instincts tell me he's not honest about where he gees, who he sees, etc. ! I grew up in a home split by divorce and promised myself I would never do that to my kids. All I've ever wanted out of life is a goodfamil£.__ i 1 love Ben, but I've postponed the wedding and j suggested counseling. Ben says he doesn't believe in counseling.! Please help me, Ann. I'm desperate. — Hung Up My Dancing Shoes in Conn. Dear Conn.: Sounds as if Ben's character is seriously flawed, which is no surprise to you. Adults rarely change in this regard, but since the stakes are so high, maybe Ben can beat the odds. His only hope is counseling. If he refuses to go, go alone and find the strength to give this guy the gate. Better now before you marry and have a family. The next letter may be of special interest to you. Dear Ann Landers: When I was 201 married ajnan I was madly in love with. (Or so I thought) After 18 years of pain I have decided to leave. I now realize I looked for the wrong things. These are the questions a woman should ask herself before she marries: (1) Does he have mature and realistic goals? (2) Does he treat me with respect and consideration? (3) Is be reliable and honest? (4) Does he like children? (5) Does he get along with his family and friends? (6) Is he responsible about money? (7) Will he be interested in growth and self-improvement? (8) If a sense of humor is important to you, does he have one? If I had asked myself these questions before I rushed into marriage, I would have been a lot better off? I hope you will print my letter for the benefit of the young women who think they are in love and are willing to overlook "a few things" because they are afraid that they can't live without the guy. — G. in Charlotte, N.C. Dear G.: Well said — and your timing was perfect Thanks for a letter that may help the woman who hung up her dancing shoes in Connecticut, u well as many others. r FOR SEWER OR SEPTIC SERVICE Ctll... 462-4012 or 459-5949 750x16 Bply 875x16.5 Bply •950x15 6 ply TIRE SALE • GT Qualifier Raised whiteletter • GT Qualifier HR&VR • SP4's • Truck Tire Sale ALL SIZES 50% OFF v LIST FREE ALIGNMENT 1.
