eagan hears states'
FromAP and UPI
WASHINGTON - President Reagan agreed
yesterday to consider changing his "new federalism"
proposal to meet criticisms raised by state and lcoal
leaders, including trying to find a way to aid states'
too poor to take over programs the federal gover-
nment now pays for.
Reagan met for an hour at the White House with
governors, state legislators and congressional
leaders, and spokesmen said there was general
agreement to make the plan work.
THE WHITE HOUSE agreed to divide the plan into
two parts: firmly held principles and the mechanism
to make the plan workable, with the latter subject to
change. The governors agreed to do the same with
"It was generally agreed that what we want to do is
to negotiate a satisfactory plan for making this hap-
pen," Gov. Richard Snelling of Vermont, chairman of
the National Governors' Association, said at a new
Snelling said there is "significant ... agreement"
among the various groups.
REAGAN WAN'Ditotransfer more than 40 federally
assisted programs to state and local governments
over the next eight years. In return, the federal
government would completely take over Medicaid.
State leaders generally welcome Reagan's "new
federalism," though they have reservations about the
formula he outlined last week in his Stae of the Union
speech, particularly over how states will be able to
pay for the programs once a federal transition fund
runs out in 1991.
"We've asked the president to consider adding a
Phase Three to his proposal, which would be some
mechanism for addressing the fact that when the tr-
ust fund has expired and the states have these
responsibilities, that there are disparities in the fiscal
capacity of the states," Snelling said. "The president
has not ruled it out."
"THE WHOLE WORLD doesn't end in 1991," said
Snelling. "The states...are certainly concerned with
what our fiscal capacity wil be in 1991."
"I want to make sure we don't come out on the
short end,' said Gov. Robert Ray of Iowa.
Added Illinois Gov. Jim Thompson: "Our figures
are based on experience. The White House is making
GOV. LAMAR ALEXANDER of Tennessee, the
governors' federalism expert, suggested "super
revenue sharing" fund might be created to help
states that can't come up with enough local taxes to
pay for the programs.
Alexander also said some way should be found to
compare what it would cost states to their ability to
raise money. Then, for example, states that couldn't
keep up essential services to the poor and elderly
might draw from the fund.
This continuing fund would be separate from a $28
billion annual transition fund that would help all
states pay for the programs.
THE REAGAN program envisions the federal
government dropping its excise taxes by 1991 and let-
ting states reimpose them. Most of the transition
fund would come from federal windfall taxes on
petroleum, which expire in 1991.
But governors have said some states might not be,
able to levy excise taxes or replace the windfall tax
with state level energy taxes.
How to pay for the program is one of the areas that
may be negotiated, Snelling said.
Israel, Egypt unhappy despite
promise of U.S. aid increases
WASHINGTON (AP)- Israel and
Egypt, the largest recipients of U.S.
economic and military aid, are due to
receive hefty increases in fiscal 1983 if
President Reagan has his way. Still,
neither is entirely happy with the
shape, if not the size, of its American
Reagan plans to boost military
assistance to Israel by $300 million, to a
total of $1.7 billion, while Egypt's
defense aid would be raised $400
million, to $1.3 billion, administration
and diplomatic sources say.
THE INCREASE for Israel is a
longstanding commitment and was
originally proposed, sources say, as
"compensation" for the sale of AWACS
radar planes to Saudi Arabia. However,
the officials add, that characterization
offended the government of Prime
Minister Menachem Begin, which bit-
terfy opposed the Saudi deal.
The sources, who asked not to be
named, said Israel initially rejected the
aid increase because it was offered in
Now, they say, the $300 million has
been reworked as a low-interest loan,
rather than a grant-and Israel still
"I'M NOT SURE it will happen," said
one Israeli official, noting that his.
government already is having difficulty
repaying past loans. "It's a question of
our ability to pay.''
Sources said Israel would like to have
at least half of the new military aid as
an outright grant.
As for Egypt, President Hosni
Mubarak is expected to raise complain-
ts during an official visit beginning
today over the strings attached to
American assistance, as well as the
costs and delivery performance of U.S.
It will be Mubarak's first visit since
becoming president following the
assassination of Anwar Sadat in Oc-
tober. Mubarak will meet with
President Reagan tomorrow.

Police raid three more
Red Brigades hideouts
VICENZA, Italy- Police said yesterday they smashed three more
hideouts of Red Brigades terrorists and newspapers reported that suspects
seized when police freed kidnapped U.S. Brig. Gen. James Dozier were
"singing like canaries."
"They're singing like canaries," Il Giorno of Milan said. Two other
newspapers, the conservative Il Giornale Nuovo and the Communist Party
organ L'Unita, said Red Brigades suspect Antonio Savasta was giving police
important information. Police believe Savasta interrogated Dozier during
his six weeks of captivity.
Police did not identify the five arrested in the latest sweep, but said they
were members of the "militarist wing" of the Red Brigades that claimed
responsibility for kidnapping Dozier from his home in Verona on Dec. 17.
Theraids were the ates in a series of operations since the rescue of
Dozier when three men and two women terror gang members were arrested
in the Padua apartment where he was held captive for 42 days.
UAW and Ford resume talks
DEARBORN, Mich.- Ford Motor Co. and the United Auto Workers retur-
ned to the bargaining table yesterday to discuss cost-cutting, job-saving con-
tract concessions four days after similar talks failed at General Motors
Ford's proposal offers employees a profit-sharing plan and unspecified job
security arrangements in exchange for shorter vacations and other con-
cessions. It is designed to make the automaker more competitive with
foreign carmakers whose lower prices have cut into the domestic market
In exchange, the UAW wants job security guarantees and an end to Ford
purchases of parts and components from companies whose workers are not
represented by the union.
Boston clamps down on
unpaid parking tickets
BOSTON- Somebody owes the city of Boston $6,000 for hundreds of unpaid
parking tickets, and soon a lot of people will know who it is.
That substantial debtor and 2,000 or so others will soon find their.-names
being distributed to newspapers across the state. The city hopes that em--
barrassment at the prospect of having their names published will prod the
culprits into paying an overdue $2 million..'I
City Collector-Treasurer Lowell Richards III said the publicity idea came
from the practice of publicizing delinquent property tax lists.
Benjamin Kilgore, spokesman for Mayor Kevin White, said release of the
list will be held up until later in the week so computers will have time to
delete names of people who paid tickets by the end of a 10-day grace period
that ran through last Friday.
A new system of processing and collecting parking fines has earned about
$12. million for the city so far this fiscal year, up from about $2 million for
the comparable period last year.
Government film on Poland
flops in European theatre
LONDON- The U.S. government film "Let Poland be Poland" provoked
jokes and sarcasm yesterday from viewers in Europe, where only five
nations ran the political program in its entirety. 1 1.
The 90-minute film, whose audio portion was broadcast on radio, featured
taped statements by President Reagan, Mrs Thatcher, and West German
Chancellor Helmut Schmidt as well as entertainment from show business
figures Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, Barbra Streisand, Charlton Heston, Kirk
Douglas and Orson Welles.
In Britain, where only excerpts of the show were aired Sunday, an
editorial in the newspaper Daily Mail called it "an oyerblown sideshow."

Fiber expert' cites new link in Williams trial
ATLANTA (AP)- Hairs from Wayne, Williams'
head match hairs that were found under the clothing
of one of the city's 28 slain young blacks, an FBI fiber
expert testified yesterday at Williams' murder trial.
The hairs found underneath 11-year-old Patrick
Baltazar's shirt "could have originated from Wayne
Williams," the FBI's Harold Deadman said.
HE CONCEDED that "hair comparisons are not a
positive means of association," but added. "I have
rarely seen instances where hairs from two different
p individuals exhibit the same characteristics."
Deadman's testimony came at the start of the sixth
week of trial for Williams, a 23-year-old black free-
lance photographer charged with murdering
Nathaniel Cater, 27, and Jimmy Ray Payne, 21, two
of the 28 young blacks Whose deaths over a 22-month
period have been investigated by a special police task
-Earlier yesterday, Deadman testified that fibers
from 17 items found in Williams' home and cars mat-
ched fibers on the bodies of Cater, Payne and the 11
THE FBI AGENT has conceded that fiber matches
are circumstantial and cannot be used by themselves
to convict anyone. But he said it was his opinion that
the fibers on 11 of the 12 victims "came about through
contact with either items in the home of Wayne
Williams or the automobile of Wayne Williams."
He conceded that a single fiber cannot be
associated positively with any particular object, but
"in this case we are dealing with a large number of
items...containing two or three different types of
fibers. Based on this, each additional association ad-
ds to the significance.
"I CONSIDER THE 11 victims - I consider them.
all to be related." Deadman said he excluded the
case of 15-year-old Joseph Bell, one of the slayings
with which Williams hs not been charged, since only
two types of fibers were found on Bell's body when it
ws pulled from a river.
Deadman also conceded that, although he had
linked fibers from the home and cars with the vic-
tims, no significant fibers from the victims were
found in Williams' cars or the house he shared with
His findings were corroborated by Barry Gaudette,
a fiber expert who serves as a consultant to the Royal
Canadian Mounted Police.
PROSECUTORS, WHO are expected to wind up
their case this week, are presenting evidence on 10
additional slayings, including Baltazar's, in an effort
to show a pattern that may fit the Cater and Payne

LSA will test foreign TAs
(Continued from Page1)
simple oral presentation in the TA's
field of study-a math TA, for exajnple,
would be asked to work out an equation
and explain the process to a board of
faculty and students, Zorn said.
University students with secondary
school diplomas from countries such as
Canada or Great Britain, where
English is the principal language, or
students whose native tongue is
English, could simply talk with board
members or administrators to be
cleared for teaching.
Reaction to the plan by foreign TAs
seemed to be mixed yesterday. Some
said they would not mind taking a
language examination, but some, as
administrators had feared, said they
were insulted by the new requirement.
Sociology TA Kyung Song called the
requirement "ridiculous" for TAs who
have already been teaching here for
several years. Song said he knows his
English is imperfect even though he has
taken English courses, but said his

students usually get used to his accent
after a few days.
"'I'm not sure an oral examination is
necessary in Romance Languages,"
said Spanish TA Hersilia Alvarez, but
she added it might be necessary for TAs
in other fields.
Alvarez said she could understand
the rationale for such an oral exam,
because the Test of English as a
Foreign Language and Michigan Test
required for foreign graduate students'
admission "don't tell you anything
about what the person is actually able
to do" with their spoken English skills.
Beatrice Hopiard, a TA for French
231 and German 101, said the
requirement"is a little late for those of
us who have already been here," and
said the Univesity might consider in-
corporating an oral presentation
examination within the tests already
required for admission.
IT IS NOT clear yet how LSA will
finance the English classes for the TAs
who fail the exams or exactly what
programs the TAs will have to take for
LSA has funded two pilot language
programs this year for which TAs could
volunteer through the Michigan
Language Center, and Zorn said these
classes seemed to be successful in im-
proving the English skills of foreign
