Congress debates
student loan future

(Continued from Page 1)

ONCE THE budgets have been ap-
proved, bills specifying GSL policies
will not go into effect until July,
congressional sources said.
Meanwhile, the subject of federal aid
to a student's education is a subject of
hot debate both on the off the floor.
A senator's aide, who asked not to be
named, said that the Republican-
controlled Senate will adhere to
Regan's GSL cutback proposals closer
than the House, which has a
Democratic majority.,

"THE HOUSE will probably stand up
to the President," he said.
Already, members of the House
Education and Labor Committee-who
helped construct the GSL programs
Reagan now wants to alter-said they
oppose any changes to current laws,
Senior Professional Assistant Thomas
Wolanin said.
"We're not going to play Reagan's
game," Wolanin said.
SEVERAL education lobbyist groups
have also voiced opposition to Reagan's
Director of Legislation for The
American Federation of Teachers,
Greg Humphrey, said "we project close
to a million students" won't be able to
enter of continue in college if any of
Reagan's major proposals are enacted.
"The administration is trying to of-
fset the equal access to education that's
existed for the last 15 years," Hum-
phrey id.
JOE WEENEY, spokesmanfor the
United States Student Association, said
that Reagan wants to reduce the
federal role in financing student
education, thus shifting the burden to
private lenders.
"Who could possibly afford 17 percent
monthly interest rate on a GSL?"
Sweeney asked. "No lower-income
people, that's for sure."
Humphrey said that financial aid
cutbacks are part of "a well-
orchestrated bi-partisan campaign for
Reagan" that congresspersons believe
their constituents favor.
"They (senators and represen-
tatives) are not getting any mail to the
contrary," Humphrey said.
A Department of Education official
said the move to reduce the federal role
in GSL funding came in response to
overwhelming amounts of defaults on
student loans.
University and state officials report
that University students have more
than $33 million outstanding in matured

Miners stage wildcat strikes
Thousands of rebellious miners idled mines in the nation's soft coalfields.
yesterday with new wildcat strikes erupting in Pennsylvania where ar-
sonists torched a coal storage facility.
A federal judge in Pittsburgh ordered 2,300 Pennsylvania miners back to
The United Mine Workers union urged miners to halt all wildcat strikes.
However, roving pickets, some wearing ski masks to hide their identities,
closed mines in seven states.
Contract negotiations broke off Tuesday with the pension issue reported as
the main stumbling block.
UMW President Sam Church has warned a strike by 160,000 soft coal
miners is certain when the current three-year contract expires at midnight
March 27.
Polish police assault union
members, new strikes possible
WARSAW, Poland-Club-swinging police beat a group of union officials
and broke up their occupation of a government building in a provincial city
yesterday, prompting unions across thecountry to threaten a new round of
general strikes.
Solidarity's national leadership issued an urgent appeal for calm until the
details were known.
"We ask you to keep the calm absolutely and not to undertake any actions
until we have a full explanation of the matter," the appeal said. "Stop all ac-
tions. Wait for information."
It was the first known case of violence against the Solidarity labor union,
and it raised the prospect of renewedlabor unrest as the Sviet Union and
three Warsaw Pact partners were conducting military maneuvers inside
Japanese willing to talk
with U.S. on auto imports
TOKYO-Foreign Minister Masayoshi Ito said yesterday Tokyo is willing
to talk with Washington about auto exports but hinted he was against curbs
on Japanese car makers.
Ito's statement contrasted sharply with that of International Trade and
Industry Minister Rokusuke Tanaka, who told Parliament Wednesday that
his ministry was geared to impose curbs on car exports through "ad-
ministrative guidance."
In Washington, White House aides indicated President Reagan was "not
surprised" by the change in signals from the Japanese government because
such shifts on import intentions occurred during the Carter administration,
they said.
Automakers show small gains
in employment, production
DETROIT-U.S. automakers will operate all but two of their domestic
assembly plants next week, boosting production and employment slightly in
anticipation of a stronger spring selling season.
Higher output is being ordered as cash rebates offered by every domestic
automaker but Volkswagen of America continue "to trim car inven-
tories-which had been worked down to a healthy 59 days supply at the
beginning of March.
Industry executives now are beginning to predict car supply shortages
later this year. One executive said he is convinced sales are being lost
because dealer inventories in some areas aretoo low.
Despite the recent production gains, output remains well below levels of
the peak output years of 1977 and 1978.
Mormon founder's blessing
will not change church policy
SALT LAKE CITY-Discovery of a 137-year-old document in which Joseph
Smith Jr. promised his son the presidency of the Mormon Church-a post in-
stead claimed by Brigham Young-will make no difference in how church
leadership is now transferred, Mormon officials said yesterday.
The document, discovered by a collector of Mormon records, apparently is
the text of a blessing given by church founder Smith in 1844. It promised his
then 12-year-old son, Joseph Smith III, that he would one'day become the
leader of the church. Six months later, Smith was shot to death by a mob in
Carthage, Ill.
After Smith's death, Young led the main body of the church to Salt Lake
City. The younger Smith later became the president of the Reorganized
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, headquartered in Independen-
ce, Mo.
Mormon officials said at a news conference that they will exchange the.

document for an 1833 copy of the Book of Commandments held by the RLDS
Church. The book contains revelations Smith said he received from God.
Both churches accept those writings as Scripture.
