Bigfoot haunts them

says it's not the torn down fences or
the barn doors that have been ripped
off at the hinges, nor is it the high-
pitched screaming they often hear at
"It's the unknown that scares us,"
she said. "If I knew what it was I
could deal with it."
The "it" the rural St. Clair County
woman is referring to is a large,
hairy creature which she and her
family are convinced is a Sasquatch,
or Bigfoot - a large monstrous
creature that is said to walk on two
legs and roam wooded areas from
Maine to Washington state.
THE BARONES' latest encounter
with the beast came Friday evening,
when daughters Tina, 13, and
Roxanne, 12, went out to the barn to
check on their animals.
Tina said the horses were spooked
and she and her sister wanted to
check their conditions. She said she
was reaching for the light switch in
the pitch black when she felt some
"At first I thought it was a goat or
some thing, so I took my glove off and
I touched it again," she said.
WASHINGTON (AP) -
Congressional negotiators struggled
with each other and a threatened veto
yesterday in their effort to draft an
emergency spending bill that could
rescue the federal government from its
Despite an all-day series of public
and private negotiating sessions, of-
ficials said billion-dollar disagreements
persisted over spending on social
programs and foreign aid. And a key
Democrat said no vote on a solution
would be taken until at least today.
TECHNICALLY, the government ran
out of money at 12 :01 a.m. yesterday
when existing stopgap spending
legislation expired. But the White
House conceded no one would notice the
difference, at least for the time being.
The new measure is needed because
- except for a measure covering its
own operations -- Congress has not
yet passed any of the regular money
bills for the current fiscal year, which
began Oct. 1.
House Democrats, in a late-night bid
to break the deadlock, submitted a
revised offer that Republicans prom-
ptly turned over to the administration
officials for review.
"IT'S AT THE White House now,"
said one aide, indicating that top-level
presidential aides were scrutinizing the
proposal to see if it would meet
Ptesident Reagan's specifications.
While full details of the Democratic
proposal were sketchy, House
Democratic Leader James Wright of
Texas said the proposal would give
Reagan the overall level of spending
cuts he wanted, but spread them dif-
ferently among federal programs.
Democrats also offered an additional
$900 million for foreign aid, he said.
Wright said that even if the plan were
accepted, the earliest Congress could
pass the measure and sent it to the
White House would be today. "There
will be no floor action tonight," he said.
Reagan, meanwhile, was waiting at
the White House to see if Congress
would deliver an acceptable bill in time
for him to leave today as scheduled for
a Thanksgiving vacation in California.
The Democrats said their proposal
would give Reagan most of the
domestic program cuts he wanted.
"We have met your demands as far as
saving money is concerned," Rep.
Jamie Whitten (D-Miss.) told senators

MOSCOW (UPI)- The Soviet Union, in a statement draf-
ted at the highest levels of the Kremlin, yesterday rejected
President Reagan's zero-option proposal on nuclear disar-
mament as a gimmick to sway European public opinion.
An article in Pravda signed by Alexei Petrov said the
United States intended to deploy 572 new medium-range
nuclear missiles across Western Europe no matter what
agreements it reached with the Soviet Union at a round of
arms negotiations opening in Geneva Nov. 30.
PETROV IS A pseudonym and its use signifies the opinions
expressed are those of the highest levels of Soviet leadership.
Meanwhile in West Germany, Chancellor Helmut Schmidt
assured the United States yesterday West Germany was still
a firm American ally despite growing opposition to the
deployment of U.S. nuclear missiles in Europe.
Anti-Soviet demonstrators staged four protests yesterday
and planned at least eight more during Brezhnev's four-day
visit-his first to the West since Soviet troops invaded
Afghanistan in Dec. 1979.
West German authorities clamped tight security on the
visit, including a ban on all Afghans living near Bonn from
leaving their homes until the Soviet leader returns to Moscow
Schmidt said he was "prepared to answer Soviet questions,
to explain what the West means with this and that position."
But he stressed, "we are not brokers, we are not
mediators" We are a part of the Western .alliance, of the
Western party of the North Atlantic alliance. The leaders are

OTTAWA (AP)- Thousands of
people jammed Parliament Hill
yesterday in chilly, snowy weather to
shout indignation over high interest
rates and government economic
Canadian Labor Congress organizers
estimated 80,000 to 100,000 persons from
across the country were on hand to hear
speeches chastising Prime Minister
Pierre Elliott Trudeau's government
and demanding action to create jobs.
Police estimated the crowd at 40,000.
SOME demonstrators made bonfires
of their placards to keep warm. The
crowd was generally in a cheerful
mood, waving placards, chanting
slogans, joining sing-a-longs and
laughing at giant dummies, including
one of Trudeau with a noose around his
neck. Police said there were no inciden-

In Ann Arbor, Kathy Hartrick, coor-
dinator of the Michigan Student
Assembly's International Student Af-
fairs Committee, said that after
researching the idea of a similar
"hotline" at Michigan, she concluded
that the "problems overwhelm the
solutions" associated with the plan.
The problems with a- hotline include
investigating the information received
from callers and assuring the confiden-
tiality of informants, Hartrick said.
was cheered when he referred to the
federal Cabinet as "turkeys." Speaking
what he called an economic mess in the
country, he said: "We're here today to
tell the government we no longer take
the inequities and the incredible
lunacies of this government."
More cheers punctuated speeches by
leaders of homeowners, farmers,
women, teachers, senior citizens, and
labor, all demanding that the gover-
nment intervene to bring down interest
rates now at 17.5 percent or more mor-
tgage rates and more than 20 percent.
McDermott said the event was like
the creation of a Canadian Solidarity, a
reference to the independent Polish
trade union movement. He and others
vowed the coalition of groups that
organized the protest would stay united
and continue to put pressure on the
