Sadat sees
declares U.S.


CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - President An-
war Sadat, about to enter preliminary
peace talks with Israel, said yesterday
after a meeting with Secretary of State
Cyrus Vance that he would depend on
the United States to bridge divisions
Egypt and Israel cannot close by them-
"Whenever there is a gulf between
us, the United States, for sure, can
bring us together," Sadat said after the
two-hour session.
HE AND VANCE spoke at a news
conference on the lawn of Sadat's rest
house on the banks of the Nile, 15 miles
north of Cairo.
Vance left later in the day for Israel,
telling reporters before his departure
that the United States was lending its
"full and complete support ... to the
formal meetings here in Cairo and the
pursuit of peace."
Vance referred to direct negotiations

Calif ano hi'ts tuition ai*d

retary Joseph Califano said yester-
day he would "seriously consider"
recommending that President Carter
veto legislation to refinance the
Social Security system if it includes
tax credits for college tuition pay-
Califano said that Sen. William
Roth (R-Del.), the chief proponent of
the $250 tax break, is "holding the
viability of the Social Security sys-

tem in this country hostage for a $1.25
billion ransom for some of the
wealthiest people in the country."
ROTH'S TUITION tax credit would
grant a $250 income tax break to all
families with dependent children in
college or vocational schools of
higher learning.
Califano 'said the median income
for all families in the country is
$14,500, but that for those with
dependents in college the median
income is $22,000.
Thus, the secretary said, Roth's
tax credit would benefit "the wealthi-
est lawyers, doctors and corporation
executives who have children in
college because it is not focused
where the need is."

CALIFANO referred only to the tax
credit's possible effects on upper-
income parents of college students
and did not mention its potential
impact on lower- and middle-income
"The President would very much
like to have this matter enacted this
year," Califano said. The secretary
said he had not been in touch with
Roth about the dispute, "but he's well
aware of our views."
The Social Security conferees
agreed on every provision in the bill
except the tuition credit. The tax
increase they approved would cost
$227 billion from 1979 through 1987.
