Carter to stay out of League debate

WASHINGTON (UPI)--The League of
'Women Voters said yesterday President Carter
has rejected new debate proposals put forth by
the Reagan campaign and the league is
prepared to go ahead with two debaters and
one empty chair Sept. 21.
"The impasse remains ... I regret that very
deeply," said league president Ruth Hinerfeld
after 2% hours of negotiations with represen-
tatives of Carter, Ronald Reagan and indepen-
dent John Anderson.
She said she has changed her position of

Tuesday, when she said there would not be an
empty chair representing Carter on the plat-
form during the debate.
Asked about it yesterday, Hinerfeld said it
has always been the league's policy to include
an empty chair if an invited candidate fails to
show up at the debate "for his own purposes,"
and "that will be the case" in Baltimore.
HINERFELD SAID Reagan aides suggested
a series of round robin one-on-one debates
among the three candidates, followed by multi-
candidate debates.

Another proposal was a multi-candidate
debate at the outset followed by a Carter-
Reagan debate and then a vice presidential
debate.
Reagan and Anderson aides "were forth-
coming, .. and indicated their willingness" to
consider the proposals, she said, but the Carter
campaign rejected them.
BOTH REAGAN and Anderson have in-
dicated a willingness to take part in a first
debate Sept. 21 in Baltimore even if Carter's
chair is empty.

Timothy Smith, general counsel to the Car-
ter-Mondale campaign, reiterated Carter's in-
sistence that any multi-candidate debate come
only after a Carter-Reagan confrontation.
James Baker, Reagan's campaign manager,
said Carter's "track record for debates is one'
of arrogance," and Anderson lawyer Mitchell
Rogovin called Smith's position at the
negotiations "a fixed, wooden approach."
ASKED IF THE league would sponsor a Car-
ter-Reagan debate following the Reagan-
Anderson debate, Hinerfeld said, "No."

She said the league would sponsor a Carter-
Reagan debate only if the president shows up.
for the Sept. 21 event, and said the invitation to
Carter is still open.
Carter's campaign manager Robert Strauss,
meanwhile, said both Carter and Reagan have
'selfish reasons" for their stands on including
Anderson in the debates.
Strauss said Anderson will take votes from
Carter on Nov. 4, and this' knowledge; affects;
the position of both major party candidates.

LANSING (UPI)-The Michigan Supreme Court agreed
yesterday to hear, on a rush basis, tax cut crusader Robert
Tisch's bid to get his controversial proposal on the November
ballot.
The high court's decision to accept the case and bypass
the Michigan Court of Appeals came just two days after a
ruling against the 50 percent property tax cut proposal was
appealed by Tisch and Attorney General Frank Kelley.
THE HIGH COURT will hear arguments on the case at the
unusual hour of 8 p.m. tomorrow, due to the current Jewish
holidays. An actual ruling is not expected until after the
weekend, however.
Lansing attorney Joseph Reid, who is representing Tisch,
hailed the move as an "extraordinary" recognition of the
urgency and importance of the case.
"It's a great benefit to my client," he said. "It gives him
an opportunity to express himself to the highest court in the,
state on short notice. It's just super."
REID SAID HE remains optimistic about the outcome of
the case, but said the high court's decision to hear it so
quickly offers no clues as to how the justices will rule.
The Shiawassee County drain commissioner's proposal
was barred from the ballot last week by Ingham County Cir-

C

) High Court
cuit Judge James Giddings.
Giddings, ruling at the request of maverick attorney
Zolton Ferency, said petitions circulated for the amendment
were legally defective because they failed to mention all
provisions of the state Constitution the measure would alter
or abrogate.
TISCH AND KELLEY, who is representing state elec-
tion officials, argued in their appeals the people's right to
amend their constitution should not be frustrated by narrow
legal interpretations. They said the law merely requires
'petitions to list sections of the Constitution which actually
would be rewritten.
The deadline already has passed for certifying the Tisch
proposal for the fall ballot, although the high court has the
power to order it on. Tisch backers gathered well over the
minimum number of signatures required.
THE HIGH COURT, in accepting the case, did not lift
Giddings' ruling as requested by Tisch.
Reid said, however, such an order was not necessary due
to the speed with which the court is acting.
Rival tax reform plans backed by Gov. William G.
Milliken and the Michigan Education Association have been
approved for the ballot.

Speeding of
Oswald case
encouraged
FORT WORTH, Texas (UPI)-
Attorneys for and against
exhumation of Lee Harvey Oswald's
grave are being urged to settle out of
court to avoid years of controversy
and litigtion, lawyers said yester-
day.
Civil District Judge James Wright
said it would not be proper for him to
comment prior to returning a ver-
dict in a lawsuit filed by Robert
Oswald, the alleged presidential
assassin's older brother. The verdict
was expected next week.
But two lawyers representing
Robert Oswald told UPI the judge
urged all attorneys involved in the
case, in a conference in his cham-
bers, to settle the dispute privately.
Robert's lawyers sued British
author and lawyer Michael Ed-
dowes, who is seeking the
exhumation.

State Senate refuses temporary budget;

Milliken hit by House Dems for revisions

LANSING (UPI)-The Senate Ap-
propriations Committee refused to take
he easy way out yesterday and
declined to pass a temporary version of
the budget, warning the House it must
take responsibility for setting the tight
spending levels.
Meanwhile, House members ex-
changed partisan shots over the lack of
action on the 1980-81 budget, with Gov.
William Milliken getting caught in the
verbal crossfire.
House debate began with complaints
from Republicans over lack of
movement on the budget, which is due
by the start of the-fiscil year Oct. 1.
"WHY ARE we ngeti g?" asked.
Rep. Charles Mueller FR-Linden).
"This is an election year. We should get
down to work or go home"
Democrats quickly jumped in,
blasting Milliken for continually
revising his original projections. "We
have been meeting and are trying to
trim but it is virtually impossible to cut
the budget when you get three different

versions within a few months," said
House Appropriations Committee
Chairman Dominic Jacobetti (D-
Negaunee).
While adding to the criticism of the
governor, House Speaker Bobby Crim,
(D-Davison), urged members to keep
away from partisan arguing, saying it
was "not in the best interest of the
state."
THE SENATE committee's action
added fire to the House fray.
The committee abruptly halted con-
sideration of a pair of so-called "con-
tinuation" bills intended to allow state
departments to continue functioning
until Michigan's economic situation
stabilizes and a formal budget can be
developed.
"We're. tired of passing the budget,"
said Sen. Stephen . Monsma, (D-Grand
Rapids). He noted the entire Senate had
passed a complete set of 1984-81 budget
bills in July and forwarded them to the
House where they have languished.
THE "BALL, glove and biat are on

their side of the building," Sen. James
DeSana, (D-Wyandotte) said of the
House.
"If the House doesn't want to act on
our bills, they should be the ones to do
something," DeSana said.
The new fiscal year begins Oct. 1, and
lawmakers in other years have com-
pleted their budget work by mid-
summer. If no spending plan is in effect
on Oct. 1, state operations will grind to
a halt.
If the committee had agreed to pass
the three-month continuation budget,
spending levels would have been set
about 5 percent below the already
reduced 1979-80 fiscal year.
MEANWHILE, LEGISLATIVE
leaders were scheduled to meet with
Gov. William Milliken and state budget
officials today in an attempt to
whittle further spending levels for the,
impending fiscal year.
Thus far,, declining state revenues
caused by high unemployment and
lagging auto sales have forced a reduc-
tion of $750 million-including $144
million from the Department of Social
Services and $150 million in school
aid-from the amount officials had
originally hoped to spend in the year.
Milliken aides are continuing to push

for. passage of a full year budget. But
Sen. Bill Huffman (D-Madison
Heights) said he would not work on any
spending bills until the governor offers
lawmakers some guidance.
"I'm very disappointed with Bill.
Milliken's leadership," he said.
