2-D THE BAYTOWN SUN Thursday, December 2, 1992 Kennedy Still Keeping Own Counsel On Who He '11 Back WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, renouncing a bid for the White House in 1984, is fully prepared to back another contender based on the issues he would have stressed in a campaign of his own, aides say. Aides said no endorsement is expected for some time, although any of the remaining contenders — Walter Mondale and Sens. John Glenn and Gary Hart among them — presumably would be delighted to receive Kennedy's blessing. Alan Cranston, the Senate Democratic whip, said as much, predicting, "A significant number of Kennedy supporters will now be ready to support me." Kennedy was keeping his own counsel, refusing to name a favorite or even identify a .front-runner. Cranston conceded the current lead to former vice president Mondale and said he ranks Glenn, of Ohio, next. Others edging into the race, still unannounced, include Hart of Colorado, Morris Udall of Arizona, Sen. Ernest Hollings of South Carolina and former Florida Gov. Reubin Askew. But one Kennedy aide said: "He's going to look and see if these people are consistent" with the themes he would have stressed — a nuclear freeze and changed economic policies chief among them. Another aide, also asking not to be identified, said that while the Massachusetts senator is "leaving the option open to endorse a candidate in the future," he does not have a favorite at this point. Associates who talked with Kennedy by telephone over the past few days also said he ex- pressed no preference. "He intends to play a major role in Democratic party politics," one aide said after Kennedy's nationally televised announcement that personal reasons dictated a decision to renounce both a candidacy and a draft for the nomination in 1984. Although ruling out a race in 1984, the 50- year-old Kennedy said he wasn't renouncing any hopes for the White House in 1988 and beyond, and aides sought to stress his determination to remain a party leader in the interim.

But a key aide — all Kennedy's assistants were asking for anonymity Wednesday — hinted broadly that Kennedy might soon announce a "major domestic initiative" dealing with the economy as one way of indicating his intention to retain his voice as a party leader. "He will have enormous influence on the Democratic party and he intends to exercise it very vigorously," said another. At the time of his withdrawal, Kennedy was the front-runner in the polls among Contenders for the presidential nomination. Presidential en- said the Massachusetts senator has decided to maximize his, political muscle by retaining his political action committee, the Fund for a Democratic Majority. Kennedy will use the committee to raise funds as he participates in efforts to restore a Democratic majority in the Senate and solidify it in the House in 1984, aides say. In addition, of course, Kennedy retains his Senate seat for at least six more years, a forum from which he can easily command media attention to speak out on issues he decides are important. Kennedy himself discussed those issues briefly at his news conference, saying he intends to stay "extremely active in the national Democratic party," and continue to speak out in the Senate for "economic growth and social justice and a nuclear freeze." His news conference took on the trappings of an announcement of a White House campaign, not the aban- donment of one still being built. Kennedy was accompanied by his three children,, Edward Jr., Kara and Patrick, as well as other family members and dozens of cheering aides as he made the announcement that ended a campaign still being built. "I don't think there's any mystery I would like to be president," he said. "Were the decision to be made solely on political grounds, I would have made a different announcement today." He said he was "personally convinced" he could have won the nomination. But Kennedy said it was too soon to ask his family to go through a campaign after the "difficult experience" of 1980, when he tried but failed to wrest the nomination from President Carter. He added his pending divorce from his wife Joan has been "painful for our children as well as ourselves." "I believe my first and overriding obligation now is to Patrick, Kara and Teddy," he said. "I will not be a candidate for president of the United States in 1984." * Kennedy Listened To Kids WASHINGTON (AP) — In the end, when he had to decide whether to run once more for the presidency, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy listened to his children. And they said no. Not now. Not while they're in school. Patrick, at 15 the youngest, is a ;f r e s h m a n at .'Fessenden School, a preparatory school outside Boston. Edward M. Jr., 21, is a junior at Wesleyan Joliege in Middletown, Conn. Kara, ,•$2, is a senior at Tufts -College in Medford, Mass. Not while the divorce from their mother, Joan, is still .so raw. The Kennedys announced last ..•'year their intention to 'dyi V o r c e in Massachusetts. The final agreement is 1 ex- pec ted soon. Not after the assassination at- tempts on President Reagan and Pope John Paul II. "After {the attempts on) Reagan and the pope, things were brought back that they thought they were distanced from," said a Kennedy aide who insisted on remaining anonymous. "They're concerned primarily for his welfare." Ted Kennedy has been criticized for a myriad of reasons, personal and poliical. But few could claim he is not a good father. When Joan Kennedy moved from suburban Virginia to Boston to get her life together and tackle what she admitted was a severe drinking problem, it was Kennedy -who kept their youngest son, Patrick. It %vas Kennedy who attended PTA meetings, drove car pools, got home in time to have dinner with his son. "He is very, very close to Patrick," said - Kennedy aide Melody Miller. In 1973 Teddy Jr. lost a leg to cancer. In tears, Kennedy had broken the news to his son and then spent almost every •waking and sleeping hour at his son's side throughout the hospitalization and painful therapy. Fifteen months later, Kennedy followed his son down a mountain — on skis. "Look at him take that," Kennedy yelled as his son curved gracefully around an obstruction. That night, as the family gathered in a ski lodge in western Massachusetts, it was Kennedy who administered an asthma-treatment to Patrick, who has suffered from the respiratory disorder since birth. PHARMACY TOPICS By KE!N ROBERTS Breast cancer patients who are fat, with high cholesterol levels, don't seem to survive as long after treatment as do thinner women with low cholesterol levels, says a study at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York. Fracture patients wilt recover faster with more protein in the diet, according to research at the Burke Rehabilitation Center in White plains, N.Y. Calcium helps, too. Researchers at hospitals in London and Washington, D.C., are using ultrasound lo estimate the age of a fetus (and thus the delivery due-date). They mesure the femur. New method is safer than Xray, or any other way to "seeing" the child. Radiation seems to be more effective against early prostate cancer than surgery, according to a recent survey reported in the Journal of the American Medical Assocition.
