Congress edging toward
election year tax increase

WASHINGTON (AP)- Slowly but surely, key Republican
leaders in Congress are edging toward what ordinarily would
be unthinkable-a bill to raise taxes by billions of dollars a
few months before next year's congressional elections.
Democrats, smarting from defeat in the tax cut fight, seem
willing to go along on the condition that President Reagan
make a clear, unambiguous statement that he, too, favors
higher taxes.
THAT WOULD amount to nothing less than a confession by
Reagan that he was wrong in pushing his tax cut plan through
Congress. And it would give Democrats an opportunity to roll
back or cancel part of the tax plan while scoring political
So far, the president hasn't said much, although Treasury
Secretary Donald Regan said Friday that administration of-
ficials are debating the wisdom of raising taxes substantially
during a recession.
!Other sources also indicate the president's advisers are
split on the issue. Regan is said to oppose a tax increase, and
budget director David Stockman reportedly believes one is
needed to shrink the government's budget deficit.

REAGAN IS expected to discuss the issue with advisers
and congressional Republicans this week.
White House spokesman David Gergen said yesterday that
Reagan has not accepted the proposition that higher taxes
are required. Nor has he accepted Regan's conclusion that
the administration probably will not be able to balance the
budget by 1984, Gergen said.
For some GOP members of Congress, the push to raise
taxes stems from concern over spiraling deficit forecasts for
the next three years. The most recent figures indicate the
deficit could reach $100 billion in 1984-the year Reagan
promised to balance the budget.
IGIVEN REAGAN'S commitment to defense spending,
GOP congressmen have long since concluded a balanced
budget won't be possible in 1984 unless taxes are raised far
more than the $22 billion in '"revenue enhancements" the
president is seeking.
The plan circulating among key Senate Republicans repor-
tedly calls for tax increases of between $50 billion and $70
billion over the next three years.

Dead man alive to con relatives

ROME (AP) - Italians expressed
foutrage yesterday at a gruesome new
trick by the nation's kidnap industry:
the 81-year-old victim was shot to death
and frozen, then "made up," put in a
chair and photographed as if alive to
fool relatives into paying a $500,boo ran-
- Police also seized papers showing the
abductors planned to kidnap Italian ac-
tress Virna Lisi and other actors and
businessmen whom they did not name.
A SPOKESMAN for the Rome,
prosecutor's office.told the Italian news
agency ANSA that the office has been
flooded with angry calls from people
demanding prompt and harsh punish-
ment for the kidnappers, who have been
Franco Ferrarotti, a sociologist, told
ANSA the macabre episode "should
sound an alarm bell throughout the
government ... It's one crime that should
(not be dismissed as another episode in
daily violence in Italy."
Monsignor Elio Venier of the office of
.the Rome archdiocese told ANSA, "I'm
not speaking out of hatred, but I say

that theLord someday will make these
people without heart to understand the
magnitude of the crime they have
POLICE SAID the case came to light
after they freed another kidnap victim
and arrested her six abductors last
week. They said the victim helped
them find the body of Giovanni Palom-
bini, a millionaire coffee magnate
missing since April. His body was
located Wednesday buried under a tree
outside the village of Valmontone; 25
miles south of Rome, police said.
Palombini's family paid a $500,000
ransom two months ago after receiving
photographs of Palombini "showing'
that he was still alive," police said.
An autopsy revealed, however that
'Palombini had been dead for at least a
month when the pictures were taken,
police said. He had been shot three
times in the chest, they added.
Police said the kidnappers apparen-
tly kept his body in a type of freezer
commonly used by shops for storing ice
cream. They said the abductors pulled
the body out and "made him'up" for the

The photographs showed Palombini
sitting in a chair, wearing dark
sunglasses and holding a newspaper,
police said. They were not made
Palombini was among 27 people this
year and 380 since 1972 to be grabbed by
ransom-seeking kidnappers. Most of
the victims are; freed after relatives
pay a ransom, but 18 bodies have been
found and police say at least 21 other
people are presumed dead.

STOCKHOLM; Sweden (AP) - After
five days of being stranded, the crew of
the grounded Soviet submarine is get-
ting edgy and there is a possibility some
of them, including the skipper, may try
-to defect, Swedish officers said yester-
".The atmosphere aboard is very ten-
se and irritated," said army Col. Jean-
Carlos Danckwardt. "We cannot ex-
clude that some of the crew may seek
"asylum." Other officers said the cap-
tain was not being allowed ashore
because Soviet officials feared his
_ defection.
The crew of about 56 has been under
heavy guard since Tuesday by Swedish
marines in battle dress and comman-
-4os armed with submachine guns
:eeping watch from a nearby Swedish
They have also been subjected td
what one ,Swedish military officers
described as "sort of psychological
warfare" by combat units holding drills
on islands only 100 yards away.
And a Soviet flotilla of two
destroyers, two tugs, one submarine
salvage vessel and a supply vessel
cruised nearby, just outside Sweden's
12-mile territorial limit.
Another submarine was detected
yesterday close to the territorial limit
and southwest of the grounded Soviet
sub, but withdrew, a Defense
Headquarters spokesman reported.
He said the second submarine,
remained under water and at least two

Swedish helicopters lowered
hydrophones to make contact with it.
After the contact was made, the sub-
marine 'turned away from Swedish
waters and there was no reason to pur-
sue it, the spokesman added.
He called the contacts "routine
procedures" and said there were a
number of foreign submarines constan-
tly operating in the Baltic. The helicop-
ter crews could not determine the
model or size of the second submarine,
the spokesman said.
Sweden has refused to refloat the
submarine until the ship's skipper
comes ashore with his log and the
Soviet Union provides a full explanation
for the incident - not just an apology.

Uto Ughi made his first concert appear-
ances in the major cities of Europe before
he was 20 years old. Since that time, he
has performed in the United States,
South Africa, South America, and the
USSR with renowned orchestras and con-
ductors, exhibiting a technique that is "no-
thing short of perfection." Friday, 8:30
