Bush still slugs
By KEITH RICHBURG
Special to the Daily
WAUKESHA, Wisc. - For battle-weary
Republican presidential candidate George Bush, the
results of Tuesday's Connecticut primary were more
effective than a dose of smelling salts. Bush came out ,
of his corner swinging wildly yesterday at the Carter
administration and at his two GOP rivals, Ronald
Reagan and John Anderson.
Bush said Sen. Edward Kennedy's surprise upsets
of the president in the New York and Connecticut
Democratic primaries were "proof that the patience
of the American people with the Carter
administration's vascillating policies both overseas
and here at home has come to an end." He was ,
referring specifically to the evident impasse over the
Iranian hostage crisis and to domestic inflation,,
which is still running at about 18 per cent.

presidential candidate George Bush speaks to a group of college students in

willing to work with majority
Democrats on a compromise plan for
the fall ballot.
The GOP plan - developed by a
House-Senate Republican task force -
would reduce property taxes by up to 26
mills, making up some of the lost
revenues by raising the state sales tax
from four per cent to 5.5 per cent.
THE RESULT would be a net tax
reduction of about $250 million.
Rep. Donald VanSingel - a co-
chairman of the panel - said

Sen. Harry Gast, the other GOP task

"We're ready to begin to meet with

"I think we have similarities with

If no agreement can be reached, the
understanding is lawmakers will vote
to place both the Republican and
Democratic plans on the ballot. A two-

VanSingel said he believes the Tisch
plan will be rejected by voters "if there
is a reasonable alternative."

Iranians entering U.
under lax inspection policy
WASHINGTON (UPI) - Thousands
of Iranians are entering the United
States under a lax inspection policy that
hamstrings and frustrates immigration
agents and undercuts FBI warnings
some may be student terrorists, a UPI
investigation has uncovered.
Despite President Carter's claim that
all incoming Iranians undergo close
scrutiny, investigations have
discovered a silent but official policy of
avoiding any incident that might anger
Iran and endanger the 50 American

proof of America's vigilance. But those

"I just about have to have the guy
admit to me he is a terrorist before I

frustrated inspector of the Immigration
and Naturalization Service.
Since the embassy was seized Nov. 4,
more than 11,000 Iranians have been
admitted to the United States - a
figure growing at a rate of about 50 a
day. In the four previous years, 11,079
