ARRESTED. CEVAT SOYSAL, 37, top Kurdish rebel, by Turkish special forces; in the European republic of Moldova. The capture of Soysal, who was accorded refugee status in Germany 14 years ago, is the latest in a string of major Turkish inroads against Kurdish separatism. Abdullah Ocalan, leader of the self-rule struggle, was nabbed earlier this year in Kenya and was last month sentenced to death by a Turkish court. ELECTED. NICOLE FONTAINE, 57, veteran French center-right politician, as speaker of the European Parliament; in Strasbourg. The first woman to be elected as the Parliament's head in 20 years, Fontaine has pledged to strengthen the legislative power of the 626-member assembly in order to counter its image as an ineffectual bureaucratic swamp. CLEARED. GRIGORI PASKO, 37, whistle-blowing Russian navy captain who alerted the press to nuclear-waste dumping by his nation's Pacific Fleet, of treason and espionage charges; in Vladivostok. The military court did find Pasko guilty of improper military conduct and sentenced him to three years' imprisonment, but he was freed under a federal amnesty, after 20 months in jail awaiting trial. DIED. DAVID OGILVY, 88, British-born advertising guru whose global agency Ogilvy & Mather revolutionized the industry by following his philosophy that the consumer isn't a moron; she is your wife; in Touffou, France. Ogilvy's most memorable ad campaigns included those for Dove soap, Schweppes soda and Rolls-Royce cars--each of which relied on the power of a potent slogan, rather than a catchy jingle or flashy image. DIED. STANLEY TRETICK, 77, American photographer for Look and later People, whose whimsical pictures captured the youthful spirit of the Kennedy family just one month before John F. Kennedy's assassination; in Gaithersburg, Maryland. One of Tretick's most indelible images, of John F. Kennedy Jr. as a toddler peering out from his father's desk in the White House, was to be poignantly replayed in recent days when the younger Kennedy himself died. DIED. KING HASSAN II, 70, agile Moroccan monarch, after suffering a heart attack; in Rabat. Hassan won praise in the West as a regional peacemaker, helping pave the way for the 1979 treaty between Israel and Egypt. At home he provided stability by thwarting leftist coup plotters and Islamic fundementalists, despite being criticized for autocratic ways, human rights abuses and Morocco's economic inequality.
