cash crisis ended in angry words

home for the weekend without
posed tax bills.

Republicans adjourned the Sen-
ate, which was standing by to re-
ceive a package of so-called nui-
sance bills, because Democrats re-
fused to join in sponsoring the
Republicans charged Democrats
were failing on a promise of mu-
tual responsibility. Democrats re-
plied they would not block the
taxes and declared GOP members
had the votes to go ahead on their
own if they wanted.
No Date Set
No date was set for a resump-
tion of meetings of the 16-mem-
ber bipartisan tax compromise
"I don't know where we go from

St. Clair), Republican majority
In dispute were five bills pro-
posed as an adito to the col-
lection of money-raising nuisance
taxes. They included measures to
raise revenue from a liquor excise
tax and taxes on petroleum prod-
ucts, tobacco products, coin ma-
chines and soft drinks.
Only 11 members answered the
roll call in the House. But 18 Sen-
ators stood by to receive bills for
the emergency tax program. En-
rollment of the bills yesterday
would have made Senate action
on them possible late next week.
"The opposing party refuses to
have any part of these bills,"
Beadle said. "We won't get any-
where until they recognize this is
a mutual problem."
Sen. Harold M. Ryan (D-De-
troit), Democratic spokesman, ob-
jected that about half the some
37 bills in the Senate Taxation
Committee were introduced by his
"These bills were not disclosed
to us until this afternoon," Ryan
said. "Whether or not we sign
these bills shouldn't deter you. We
won't block them and you have
the votes to push them along."
This was an extension of an
early debate in the bipartisan
"By signing these bills, Demo-
crats would demonstrate they ac-
cept mutual responsibility for the
tax program," Sen. Carlton H.
Morris (R-Kalamazoo) said. "It
* doesn't mean you have to like
them. I know I don't."
"You just want us to give you
a blank check," countered Sen.
Basil W. Brown (R-Detroit). "You
have the votes to put these in but
we don't want you to put the
blame on us."
Gov. G. Mennen Williams told
newsmen later he was "extremely
" disappointed that, after a week of
discussions Senate Republicans,
have shown themselves unwilling
to get together."
"They are still playing politics
with the state's cash crisis, try-
ng to get Democratic names on
nuisance tax bills which they have
been unable to sell to their own
caucus," he said.
"The Democrats have a pro-
gram. They are ready to stand
with it and share responsibility

The long-awaited 32-page re-I

these immediate repercussions:
1) A United Nations spokesman
said Secretary General Dag Ham-

have no connection with the re-
port to the Council.
2) A spokesman for the United
States delegation hailed the re-
port as one that would "enable
the Security Council to better un-
derstand the danger that con-
fronts Laos." He said the United
States was considering what addi-
tional steps might be takenin,
the United Nations "to further
help the Laotian people maintain
their freedom and independence."
3) The Soviet delegation de-
clared the report caused the col-
lapse, "like a card-castle, of the
entire heap of absurd charges ad-

and by those who are pursuing it
to hamstring the peaceful settle-

Illinois, intent on staying in the Big Ten title race, hosts Michi-
M gan's hopeful football team this afternoon at 1:30 p.m. (CST) before
wa slim crowd of 48,000 in Memorial Stadium.
The Illini, who have won seven of their last nine encounters with
Michigan, are rated one-touchdown favorites in this 45th Illinois-
Michigan meeting. The Wolverines hold a 27-17 edge in the series,
which dates from 1898.
Michigan has always had plenty of trouble winning in the Illini's
**xYE71,119-seat stadium, and on the last four visits have seen hopes
for Conference titles dashed by.
