Crowds greet Reagan
during Caribbean tour

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (UPI)-
Greeted in Barbados with red carpet
fanfare, President Reagan yesterday
appealed to East Caribbean nations to
depend on free enterprise and reject
Cuban efforts to exploit their hardships.
In advance of Reagan's arrival in
Barbados, the second and last stop of
his five-day "working vacation," aides
said the president would step up his
warnings about Fidel Castro and Cuban
interference in Caribbean affairs.
REAGAN FLEW to Barbados from
Kingston, Jamaica, at the western end
of the Antilles chain, where he met
Wednesday with Prime Minister Ed-
ward Seaga to discuss his Caribbean
basin economic development plans.
"The president said Oe felt his
meeting with Seaga went extremely
well," White House spokesman Larry
Speaks told reporters aboard Air Force
One yesterday morning.
Some things apparently did not go so
well, however. A small brushfire was
started at the Grantley Adams Inter-
national Airport from explosives used
for a 21-gun salute.
Barbadian firemen promptly
produced hoses to water down the
billowing smoke, which wafted onto the
parade grounds at the airport. Reagan
was standing on a red-carpeted podium
receiving waves from hundreds of well-
wishers crowded on the terminal roof-

Late Wednesday, the House and
Senate appropriating committees ap-
proved $308 million in budget cuts
which make up the other half.
Earlier yesterdayBudget Director
Gerald Miller urged balky House
Republicans to back controversial ad-
ministration budget proposals, warning
Michigan's position with New York
financial houses is "very precarious.'
MILLER WAS forced to cancel a
meeting scheduled yesterday with Wall
Street bond houses due to the lack of
progress on the budget.
Hetold lawmakers in the Republican
caucus he was on the phone to those
oficials Wednesday night "trying to
keep things calm there."
"We are dealing with a very
precarious situation in New York,"
SEVERAL conservative Republicans
opposed the recommended tax hikes
and were holding out for deeper budget
cuts instead. Some were openly skep-
tical about the administration's claim
that failure to speedily resolve the
state's fiscal crisis will result in
damaging action by Wall Street.
Meanwhile, the Senate approved 20-
16 and sent to the House a $283 million
supplemental appropriation for various
state departments, particularly

Atty. General clears Casey
WASHINGTON- Attorney General William French Smith handed CIA
Director William Casey a clean bill of health yesterday over allegations
focused on his 1976 activities in behalf of Indonesia.
Smith said he had found no reason to ask for the appointment of a special
prosecutor to pursue the matter further.
The Justice Department investigation closed by Smith arose over January
newspaper accounts which disclosed that as a private lawyer, Casey
assisted an Indonesian effort to reverse an unfavorable tax situation and
restore lucrative credits to American companies which buy that nation's oil.
Casey, according to government documents, met several times with top
officials of the Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service
seeking to find out how Indonesia could change tax laws in such a way that
the companies could regain the credits that the IRS had revoked in 1975.
One Justice Department official, who asked not to be identified, said Casey
"didn't attempt to have input into the IRS' guidelines. All he was attempting
to do was to get the IRS tosay this is what you have to do to get the tax
credits. He was saying, 'This is your policy, how do we comply with it?' "
said the department official.
Tunnel explosion investigated
OAKLAND- Federal investigators poked through melted metal and
seared concrete yesterday, seeking the cause of a gasoline tanker explosion
that sent a fireball shooting through the Caldecott Tunnel, killing seven
"Hopefully, early next week we'll have it back to normal" with temporary
repairs, said Bob Halligan, spokesman for the California Department of
The 2,000-degree fireball ripped through the westbound highway tunnel
shortly after midnight Tuesday.
Assemblyman Tom Bates (D-Oakland) said he would introduce a bill
regulating truck designs and routes for hazardous materials.
Wash. pipeline plan rejected
OLYMPIA, Wash.- Gov. John Spellman yesterday rejected plans for an
oil superport and 1,500-mile-long pipeline to carry Alaskan crude to
refineries in the Northwest and upper Midwest.
Spellman said the need to protect the environment of Puget Sound, under
which the pipeline would pass, outweighed benefits of the $2.7 billion
proposal, which the Reagan administration says is vital to the national
"I have rejected the application because the proposed project constituted
a very real threat to Puget Sound, which is a national treasure. I cannot
allow the sound, its delicate ecology, or the economy and lifestyle it supports
to become endangered," the Republican governor said.
The Northern Tier consortium, which includes Getty Oil Co., U.S. Steel,
and Westinghouse Electric Corp., has already spent an estimated $5 million
on the project and has received permits from all the other states involved
and from the federal government.
UAW predicts acceptance
