Mrs. Onassis hospitalized for cancer treatment

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was hospitalized for cancer treatment yesterday, a month after undergoing surgery for a bleeding ulcer.

"She's fine," said her spokeswoman, Nancy Tuckerman.

The former first lady disclosed in February that she has non-Hodgkins lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph system.

"She goes in for routine visits, routine treatment," Ms. Tuckerman said. "That's what this is."

Mrs. Onassis, 64, could be released as early as today.

Trudeau's former wife lives quiet life now

The woman once known as Margaret Trudeau, who partied with the Rolling Stones in New York, has mellowed.

At 45, the former wife of Pierre Trudeau loves to garden, walk her dog, bake cookies and look after her two children with her husband, businessman Fried Kemper.

"I think I'm strong but I'm a woman, and being fragile is part of our nature," Margaret Kemper said in an interview in this week's Derniere Heure. "I now know my limits. I like my life now."

She says she still loves Mr. Trudeau, whom she married in 1971 when she was 22 and he was 51. They split in 1977 and divorced in 1983.

Austria quietly bestows award on Rushdie

The award was kept quiet until newspapers publicized it, prompting Culture Minister Rudolf Scholten to set up an elaborate journey to a 19th-century palace for selected reporters to meet Mr. Rushdie. Khomeini pronounced a death edict against Mr. Rushdie five years ago for allegedly defaming Islam in his book "The Satanic Verses."

Pinewood Studios, the home of past 007 movies, has confirmed that it is "still in discussion" with producer Barbara Broccoli about making the new Bond film there.
