Reagan urged to cut affirmative
action, other civil rights policies
WASHINGTON (AP) - A conservative group, in
advice to the Reagan transition team, says the
Justice Department's civil rights division has
become radicalized and urges sweeping policy
changes, including an end to affirmative action.
A task force of the Heritage Foundation, a conser-
vative Washington-based "think tank," proposes that
Reagan repeal executive orders issued by Presidents
Lyndon Johnson, Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter.
THE EXECUTIVE orders involved require that
federal agencies and government contractors take
affirmative steps to increase the hiring and
promotion of blacks, women, the handicapped, and
minorities who have been victims of past
Terming the civil rights division the "most
radicalized" element of the Justice Department, the
group proposes policy reversals and orders to stop
the federal governmenit from advocating cross-
district busing for integration, from supporting civil
suits designed to boost minority and female
professional school enrollments and from even
collecting job data by race, sex or ethnic origin.
Heritage Vice President Phil Truluck said a collec-
tion of transition suggestion reports, totaling 3,000
pages, will be turned over today to Edwin Meese,
head of Reagan's transition team. The project, was
begun a year ago on Heritage's own initiative.
MEESE, WHO HAS worked with Heritage officials
for several years, was told about the project last
spring. At a news conference here yesterday, Meese
noted that the project has no official status in the
Reagan transition but he added that the transition
planners were very interested in getting the Heritage
papers and "we are very pleased with the recom-
mendations that have been presented to us" so far.
During the campaign, Reagan said he opposed
school busing for integration and numerical quotas
for minorities, although he added that he might pick a
female or minority candidate from a group of equally
qualified candidates for certain jobs.
The Heritage group warns Reagan that civil rights
changes will be controver'sial. The group says the
new assistant attorney general in charge of the civil
rights division must be "willing to take the heat for
policy reversals" and "must understand from the
beginning that he may be forced to resign in order to
insulate the presidency."
GIVEN THIS understanding, the Heritage planners
say, the president should refuse to interfere in the
new civil rights chief's conduct of litigation.
Exiled Soviet dissident killed

ACCORDING TO authorities,
Amalrik, accompanied by his wife and
two other Soviet dissidents, was driving
to attend the 35-nation Madrid con-
ference reviewing the Helsinki accords
on human rights and detente.
Amalrik, long critical of the
Kremlin's treatment of political
prisoners and individual liberties, ap-
parently hoped to testify on Soviet non-
compliance with the agreements. Sour-
ces said he had been given a special
pass for the conference.
About 40 miles north of the Spanish
capital, the car, with Amalrik at the
wheel, spun on the wet highway, slid
over to the left side of the road, and
crashed head-on into a heavy truck

Congress fixes tax cut
WASHINGTON-The outgoing Democratic-controlled 96th Congress, em-
barking on a final "lame-duck" session, junked plans yesterday for con-
sideration of a tax cut backed by President-elect Ronald Reagan.
Senate Democrats voted overwhelmingly against even bringing the tax
cut bill to the floor-a measure House Speaker Thomas O'Neill announced
President Carter was prepared to veto if it reached his desk.
Leaders promised that the session-the first post-election meeting of
Congress in a presidential election year in 32 years-would be brief, with a
shortened agenda. Later in the day, O'Neill and Senate Majority Leader
Robert Byrd met and agreed to recess the lame duck session no later than
High court hears arguments
on televised trials
WASHINGTON-Florida's pioneering practice of allowing television
cameras in courtrooms came under attack in arguments before the nation's
highest tribunal yesterday.
Lawyer Joel Hirschhorn, representing two Miami policemen convicted of
burglary, told the Supreme Court permitting televised coverage deprives
defendants of a fair trial.
Florida Attorney General Jim Smith defended the state's practice,
saying: "It's better for the citizens to see an actual image ... rather than
depending on the interpretation of the commentators."
Mayors to draft city plan
for Reagan administration
Leading mayors, edgy about what the conservative tide in Congress and
the White House may mean to urban programs, are meeting today to draft
an "urban agenda" to be presented to the Reagan administration.
Overall, city spokesmen and urban ecoromists are guessing that a Reagan
administration may not produce too radical an urban policy shift from the
Both President Carter and President-elect Reagan favor heavy private-
sector involvement in rebuildingcities.
"What we are likely to see under Reagan is a substantial acceleration of
trends already begun under Carter," said Thomas Muller, an economist
with The Urban Institute, a Washington-based research organization.
Treatment may alleviate pain
of sickle cell, doctors say.
BOSTON-The agonizing pain that is one of sickle cell anemia's worst side
effects may be prevented by a new form of treatment that slightly changes
the chemical makeup of the victims' blood, doctors have found.
The treatment is not a cure for sickle cell anemia, but the researchers say
it appears to be a relatively simple way to free victims of their most painful
Doctors developed the nbw method, which usesrmedicine and diet to lower
sodium levels in the victims' blood, at two Harvard University-affiliated
hospitals in Boston. Their research was published in today's issue of the New
England Journal of Medicine.
Sickle cell anemia affects between 30,000 and 60,000 Americans, and vir-
tually all the victims are black.
Voyager flies closest ever

Saturn and explored a half-dozen icy moons as it climaxed a 38-month jour-

The robot spaceship, 947 million miles from home and reaching speeds of
more than 50,000 mph, followed an exploratory route that passed 77,000.miles
from Saturn's golden clouds.
After covering 1.24 billion miles in a circuituous route to Saturn, Voyager
came within about 12 miles of the predetermined bull's-eye near Titan, said
mission spokesman Al Hibbs.
Gunmen kill Italian
executive in subway
MILAN, Italy-As passengers watched in horror, two gunmen
assassinated a business executive yesterday by shooting him in the head
from a seat behind him on a crowded Milan subway train.
Two men, described as in their 20s, fired two bullets into Renato Briano,
42-year-old chief of personnel of Ercole Marelli, a leading Italian manufac-
turer of electric equipment.
Shortly after the attack, a woman called a Milan radio station, claiming
the murder was the work of the Red Brigades.
Italy's most feared terrorist group, which kidnapped and killed former
Premier Aldo Moro in 1978, had been believed almost dissolved after a series
of major police crackdowns triggered by disclosures of former guerrillas
who turned informers.
