House
rejects
1980 target
budget
WASHINGTON (AP) - An unusual
coalition of House liberals and conser-
vatives joined forces yesterday to
reject a compromise 1980 target
budget, leaving stunned Democrat
leaders scrambling to piece together a
new package.
The defeat of the spending proposal,
on a 260-to-144 vote, reflected liberal
anger over House concessions to the
Senate's higher levels for defense spen-
ding and lower amounts for social
programs. Conservatives objected to
the overall spending levels as too high.
WITHIN MINUTES of the House
vote, Rep. Robert Giaimo, (D-Conn.),
Budget Committee chairman, met with
his Senate counterpart, Edmund
Muskie, (D-Maine), to discuss ways of
approving a target budget before the
long Memorial Day weekend.
Giaimo and Muskie reportedly
discussed the possibility of the Senate
amending its budget proposal to meet
some of the liberals' objections.
If such an arrangement cannot be
worked out, the target budget would go
back to a House-Senate conference
committee where a new compromise
would be developed. That, however,
would further delay the congressional
budget process, already two weeks
behind schedule.
THE COMPROMISE target budget
called for $532 billion in spending and a
$23 billion deficit for fiscal 1980, which
starts Oct. 1. The spending proposals
were very close to what President Car-
ter had recommended.
The compromise was reached last
Friday when House conferees largely
accepted higher Senate spending levels
for defense and agreed to cuts in social
programs, favored by liberals.
Prof speaks
on restraints
in Israel
Continued from tage 1
States, England, and other countries to
continue their degree programs.
Nasir said whenever Palestinians at
the university tried to demonstrate
their "free ideals," Israelis disbanded
the protest. Nasir charged that Israelis
suppressed every mode open to
Palestinians to express their human
rights.
IN ADDITION to Bir Zeit University,
Nasir said, another college and four
West Bank high schools have been
closed and may not re-open in the near
future.
After the 1967 war, Nasir said, "We
felt like developing ourselves as we saw
fit ... and that we must develop a
university." Six years later, Bir Zeit
University was an internationally ac-
credited university.
"IT'S OUR responsibility as
Palestinians to speak out on whether
our fate will be determined by Israelis
or Arabs," Nasir explained. "Our only
weapon is a fountain pen and a few
pieces of paper. They (Israelis) have
guns around the campus."
"We will continue to reaffirm our
right to speak our mind," Nasir con-
cluded.
