Governors pan New Federalism
From staff and wire reports
WASHINGTON - President Reagan's new
federalism plan is running into firm oppositin from
governors who say the programs they would inherit
are being stripped down to pay for record increases
indefense. The result, some say, could be higher
Republican and Democratic governors alike are
calling for a re-examination of administration
priorities while looking for new sources of revenue
for their financially squeezed state budgets..
GOV. JOHN SPELLMAN of Washington, a
Republican elected in 1980, said the 1983 Reagan
budget, if approved by Congress, could force him to
seek an increase in state taxes.
"This state is in severe financial distress now," he
said, noting that his administration already has had
to absorb $400 million.
In Lansing, Al Sander, press secretary to Gov.
William Milliken, said the governor's aides are
studying the Reagan budget proposal. He said it
would be several days before the budget's impact
could be determined.
"NOBODY HERE could say what the impact will
be, especially when it comes to more taxes," Sander
Democratic Gov. James Hunt of North Carolina
also predicted state taxes would be forced higher by
the Reagan budget.
The National Governors' Association holds its
midwinter meeting in Washington beginning Feb. 21,
and Hunt said he would ask the governors to consider
an alternative to Reagan's new federalism plan to
shift 43 programs to state and local governments.
"I THINK WE'LL come up with some grand swap
idea, but it will not be the president's plan," Hunt
Concern over the projected $91.5 million budget
deficit was indicated by the reservations expressed
by several Rebpulbican governors who have been
strong supporters of the president's economic
"I would prefer that there was not as much of an
increase in defense," said Gov. Albert Quie of Min-
nesota, a Republican, who added that "I'd like to see
that reflected in a smaller budget deficit. Otherwise,
I support it (the Reagan budget)."
REPUBLICAN GOVS. James Rhodes of Ohio and
Robert Orr of Indiana, both strong backers of the
president, expressed misgivings about the deficit.
Orr said he believes defense spending could be
tightened, while Rhodes said the president must find
another $100 billion in cuts or raise taxes. He said he
doubts more cuts were possible, so "it will have to be
Gov. Robert List of Nevada, another Reagan sup-
porter who also has backed higher defense spending
said, "I have to believe some of the defense money
can be pared down. I don't like the deficit."
Gov. Scott Matheson of Utah, a Democrat, predic-
ted the governors would submit a counter-proposal to
the Reagan budget when they meet later this month.

ZACATECOLUCA, El Salvador (AP) -
The U.S.-backed civilian-military junta
indicted six national guardsmen
yesterday in the Dec. 19 murders of
four American churchwomen, and tur-
ned them over to a civilian judge.
Two army helicopters flew the han-
dcuffed suspects, a box of evidence and
an indictment from national guard
headquarters in San Salvador to a cour-
thouse in this city 37 miles southeast for
the first step of a judicial process that
could take months.
Judge Bernardo Raudo Murcia iden-
tified the accused men as Sgt. Luis An-
tonio Colimbres Aleman; Cpl. Jose
Roberto Moreno Canjura, and Pvts.
Carlos Joaquin Contreras Talacios,
Daniel Canales Ramirez, Francisco
Orlando Contreras and Salvador
NATIONAL guard officials said they
were expelled from the force one hour
before being taken to court.
A military source said a seventh
guardsman who deserted the force af-
ter giving key testimony in the case
last year is being sought for further
questioning.. He was identified as Julio

private, closed door sessions attended
by four advisors from the federal
prosecutor's office in San Salvador. No
defense attorney was present.
AFTER COMPLETING the initial
depositions, the judge has 72 hours to'
decide whether there is enough eviden-
ce to send the case to' trial before
If convicted of premeditated murder,
the guardsmen could be condemned to
death or imprisoned for 30 years.
Salvadoran legal experts say a trial and
appeals could take as long as a year.
The evidence delivered to court in-
cluded a tire and jack from the
missionaries Toyota van, a red skirt
that belonged to slain lay missionary
Jean Donovan and a fingerprint and
bullet casing that allegedly belonged to
the arrested sergeant and corporal.
MEANWHILE, El Salvador's most
active relief agency says it has run out
of medicine and 33,000 war refugees
and that the government is blocking
delivery of emergency medical aid
Juan Francisco Zambra, president of
the Salvadoran Green Cross, says the
agency has been waiting since October
for a Public Health Ministry permit to
retrieve three tons of antibiotics,
tranquilizers, vitamins ans surgical
equipment from a customs warehouse

Jackson man charged
in state trooper death
LANSING- A Jackson man faced arraignment in Mason District Court
yesterday on charges of first-degree murder in the slaying of Michigan State
Police trooper Craig Scott.
Scott, 28, of Holt, a five-year state police veteran assigned to the Lansing
post, was gunned down Tuesday in an exchange of gunfire during a routine
traffic stop on U.S. 127 between Lansing and Jackson.
Ingham County Prosecutor Peter Houk said the suspect, Anthony Lee
Slater, 23, also would be charged with armed robbery in the theft of a Leslie
woman's car following the shooting.
Gov. William Milliken said he was "shocked and saddened" by the killing
and ordered flags at all state office buildings flown at half staff.
Experts dispute prosecution
testimony in Williams' trial
ATLANTA- A water flow expert testified yesterday it was "extremely
unlikely" that Wayne Williams threw Nathaniel Cater's body into the Chat-
tahoochee River from the spot where prosecutors say he dropped it.
National Weather Service hydrologist David Dingle, who used inflated
dummies and oranges to track the river's flow, testified that the experimen-
ts persuaded him that a body dumped on the west side of the river would not
end up on the other side.
Williams has pleaded innocent to murdering Cater, 27, and Jimmy Payne,
21, two of 28 young blacks killed in a 22-month string of deaths. No arrests
have been made in the 26 other cases.
Later, Michael Gurley, a scuba diver on the Fulton County Fire Depar-
tment's rescue squad, testified it was "out of the bounds of likelihood" that
Cater's body would have surfaced where and when it did had it been dumped
a mile upstream two days earlier, as prosecutors contend.
Allies' unified stand
on Poland pleases Haig
LISBON, Portugal- Secretary of State Alexander Haig said yesterday
that Western allies are in close agreement on condemning Poland's martial
law,. but he voiced "great concern" over European plans to participate in a
$25 billion gas pipeline progect with the Soviet Union.
Haig said the Reagan administration still hopes the Europeans will reduce
or cancel their plans.
"Never before has there been such unanimity of view achieved within the
NATO alliance, firsts with respect to the true nature of events in Poland,
second, with respect to the culpability of the Soviet Union in these events
and, third, with respect to concertion (sic) of effort and policy in reaction to
these events," Haig said.
Most of the allies have joined the United States in denouncing the crack-
down in Poland, although in less strid nt tones than Washington. Only
Britain has joined the United States in imposing sanctions against Moscow,
and those were relatively mild.
Missile sales to Jordan
on Weinberger's agenda
AMMAN, Jordan- Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger said yesterday
he would be willing "to go to Congress" to discuss the sale of a mobile anti-
aircraft missile to Jordan.
Weinberger, who arrived from Oman, said he expected "to discuss with
the Jordanians their need for improvements in: their air defense system"
during his one-day visit here.
Jordan's King Hussein went to Moscow last year and made a deal to pur-
chase mobile Soviet SAM-6 ground-to-air missiles for about $20 million, ac-
cording to diplomatic sources here.
