If this story turns out to be true, it would be the most diabolical intrigue of the century: a secret deal in 1980 between Ronald Reagan, George Bush and Iran's Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini to keep 52 American hostages imprisoned in Tehran until that year's election day, thus sealing Reagan's march to the White House. And that isn't all.

First Lady Nancy Reagan was the force behind purging hard-line conservatives from the Administration, and she nudged President Reagan toward his first meeting with Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev, former White House aide Michael K. Deaver writes in a new book. "It was Nancy who pushed everybody on the Geneva summit," Deaver writes in the book, to be published in February. "She felt strongly that it was not only in the interest of world peace but the correct move politically."

A new book by former White House aide Michael K. Deaver portrays Nancy Reagan as a powerful force in the White House who prods President Reagan into moderating his right-wing views. "She lobbied the President to soften his line on the Soviet Union, to reduce military spending and not to push 'Star Wars' at the expense of the poor and dispossessed," Deaver writes in "Behind the Scenes." Excerpts from the book, to be published by William Morrow in February, appeared today in the Washington Times.

Two Philip Morris Inc. officials testified Tuesday that former White House aide Michael K. Deaver was paid $250,000 to counteract false lobbying charges made by another ex-White House aide on behalf of rival cigarette-maker R.J. Reynolds. The testimony at Deaver's perjury trial in federal court touched off angry denials from the Reynolds' lobbyist, Richard V. Allen, who is a former national security adviser to President Reagan.
