Carter

MIAMI (AP) - President Carter,
allaying fears he might veto the con-
troversial tax cut bill, said yesterday he
has decided to sign the $18.7 billion
measure.
In announcing his plans, Carter asked
a Democratic Party rally whether they
thought he should sign the measure.
RESPONDING to cheers of approval,
the President said, "I'll take your ad-
vice. I've decided to sign the bill."
The President had traveled to Florida
on the last leg of a one-day campaign
swing that had taken him earlier to
Tennessee.
Carter had been reported leaning
toward signing the measure which
earlier had been the object of many
veto threats as it worked its way
through Congress. Carter had ex-
pressed special concerns with the bill's
capital gains tax cuts and that it did not

to sign
provide enough breaks for lower-
income wage earners.
CARTER ALSO said at the political
rally that he was hoping an Egyptian-
Israeli peace treaty could be signed in
December.
"I pray that before Christmas I will
be going to the Middle East to join in
signing a peace treaty," the President
said, adding, "It's not going to be easy
to conclude the details of a peace
treaty. I need your help, your support!
and your prayers."
Carter said he had "one of the
greatest opportunities of any
President" to help bring peace to the
Middle East. He noted the negotiations
on the final details of the treaty will
resume in Washington today, and said
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance will be
working on the treaty almost full time.
AFTER THE Miami rally for

tax bill
Democratic candidates, Carter atten-
ded a $1,000-a-person fundraiser for
state Senator Robert Graham, who is
battling for the governorship against
Republican Jack Eckerd; former head
of the General Services Administration.
Incumbent Governor Reubin Askew is
not eligible for a third term.
Last night's trip was the seventh in a
series the President has made since
Labor Day, campaigning in what the
White House views as key Democratic
races. The appearance came less than
48 hours after Carter announced his
new anti-inflation program to the
nation.
In Nashville, Carter got a boost from.
Tennessee's gubernatorial candidate
Jake Butcher, who promised to an-
nounce a major state program to fight
inflation and "put money in the
pockets' of Tennesseans.

Barry Johnson, Washtenaw County
Director of Environmental Health
cautioned, "Removing the PCB would
stir it up from the sediment and spread
it to the fish at which time it would en-
ter the food chain when people eat the
fish."
TRACES OF PCB were detected in
fish in Belleville Lake which adjoins
Willow Creek.
"We plan to leave them right where
they are," added Tirney. "I signed a
directive today which will start a
monitoring program.
"The PCBs are in the sediments
because the sediments are not exposed
to running water," Tirney explained.
Somalis
watchas
17 rebels
executed
NAIRBOI, Kenya (AP)-Thousands
of Somalians watched as a firing squad
executed 17 soldiers yesterday for their
part in the unsuccessful attempt last
spring to overthrow President
Mohammed Siad Barre, Magadishu
radio reported.
"The executions were carried out by
a firing squad formed by soldiers of the
armed forces and were witnesses by
thousands of people from all areas of
Mogadishu," the broadcast said.
THE NATIONAL Security Court con-
victed the 16 officers and a corporal on
September 12 for "offenses against the
unity, independence and sovereignty of
the state," the radio said.
The :government has blamed "new
imperialists hostile to Somalia" for the
April 9 coup attempt. "New im-
perialists" is the government's label
for the Soviet Union and Cuba, which
helped Ethiopia defeat Somali forces in
the Ogaden war last summer.
The attempt to overthrow Siad Barre,
who himself came to power through a
military coup in 1969, had been widely
predicted by diplomatic observers who
said Somali soldiers were embittered
by their defeat in the Ogaden.
THE SOMALI ARMY was helping
rebel Somali tribesmen in Ethiopia's
eastern Ogaden region The rebels wan-
ted to take over the territory and annex
it to Somalia, but Soviet arms and ad-
visers and Cuban troops turned the tide
in favor of the Ethiopians.
Thirty other men, mostly army
privates, also were convicted by the
Security Court. They were sentenced to
prison terms ranging from 20 to 30
years. Nineteen were acquitted for lack
of evidence.
A number of the accused plotters
escaped across the border to neigh-
boring Kenya and were granted
political asylum.
There had been speculation that Siad
Barre, who granted amnesty to more
than 2,000 prisoners earlier this week to
mark Somalia's revolution day, would
exercise presidential clemency and
commute the death sentences.
