Officials said yesterday that a
Democratic task force established by
House Speaker Thomas P. O'Neill Jr.

year. The congressional budget com-
mittees also would be required to ap-

There are, however, important

ROME (UPI) - Yasser Arafat's im-
minent arrival in Rome for a meeting
with Pope John Paul II sent relations
between the Vatican and Israel
plunging to a historic low yesterday and
set back Israel's attempt to discredit
the guerrilla chieftain.
The chairman of the Palestine
Liberation Organization was expected
in Rome late yesterday or early today
for a private audience with the pontiff.
Arafat's precise arrival time was not
disclosed for security reasons.
"The same church that did not say a
word about the massacre of Jews for
six years in Europe and did not say
much about the killing of Christians in
Lebanon for seven years "is ready to
meet the man who perpetrated the
crime in Lebanon and is bent on the
destruction of Israel," Begin was
quoted as telling his Cabinet on Sunday.
Arafat, forced to evacuate from
Israeli-encircled West Beirut Aug. 30
and described by Israel as a defeated
man, will be making his second visit to a
European country since leaving
Lebanon. He earlier visited Greece.

meeting with Arafat has no political
significance and that its concern for the
Palestinians is humanitarian, not

DC-lo crash toll rises to 55
MALAGA, Spain - Investigators yesterday removed the charred remains

Officials of the Spantax charter company whose Malaga-New York flight
crashed on takeoff Monday said 49 bodies had been found by nightfall
yesterday. Four others, including three stewardesses and an American
passenger, were missing and presumed dead. Two truck drivers died on the

when he detected possible mechanical trouble. Investigators were looking
into the possibility that engine failure caused the crash.
Reagan to push tuition plan
WASHINGTON - President Reagan promised an unlikely bipartisan group
of senators yesterday that he will personally enter the fight to get his tuition
tax credit plan passed in the Senate.
The controversial plan. would allow parents who send their children to
private schools to deduct part of the tuition from their tax bills-
Opponents charge this would undermine public education, and in the case
of church schools, violate constitutional provisions for the separation of
church and state.
"I happen to believe as long as there is independent education in this cout-
try, from the lowest giade through college and university, then we have
academic freedom," Reagan told a group of editors of religious publications.
Under the current plan, the program would cost about $800 million for the
first half of fiscal 1984, the earliest date it could become effective.
UAW, Chrysler race
to meet contract deadline
DETROIT- Racing to meet a 12:01 a.m. deadline today, Chrysler Corp.
and United Auto Workers bargainers yesterday attempted to "piece
together" a contract for 60,600 hourly workers to avoid a promised union
Negotiators worked into the early morning hours yesterday, then broke for
a few hours sleep and resumed talks around 9 a.m. A mountain of work
remained on basic contract issues before the two sides could agree on a new
UAW President Douglas Fraser had warned the union will strike if there
was no settlement by midnight last night, but added the prospect was
"horrifying," especially in light of the past cooperation between the union
and the company.
The UAW is seeking pay increases and the restoration of cost of living
allowances to make up for the concessions it granted Chrysler last year in its
brush with bankruptcy.
Surprise storm buries Rockies
A blinding storm that buried the northern Rockies under 18 inches of wet
snow pushed into its second day yesterday, blocking highways and snapping
power lines under its weight.
The surprise storm plastered the mountains of Colorado, Wyoming and
Montana Monday and continued yesterday-weeks before leaves take on
their autumn colors.
By midday yesterday the two-day snowstorm piled up two feet of snow in
some mountain areas of Montana, with up to 12 inches in the Helena area. In
Billings, the snow was coming down at the rate of an inch an hour with five
inches already on the ground.
The snow, falling on ripe tomatoes and fresh corn, built drifts cartop deep
in many places. The Wyoming Highway Patrol said hundreds of travelers
were trapped, including about 100 that took refuge at a motel at Hell's Half
Acre near Casper, Wyo.

The father of the two writers, Dr. Edmonds Hemingway, also took his life

Illness was the apparent reason in all three instances.

THE TRUE STORY OF THE
ISRAELI ATTACK ON
In 1967an American naval vessel, USS LIBERTY, was attacked in interna-
tional waters by air and naval forces of Israel. The prolonged, carefully orchestrated
assault killed 34 crewmen and wounded 171, but the entire matter was brushed
aside by our government despite evidence that it was deliberate. Now a ship's
officer who survived the attack reveals the full story for the first time.
Mr. Ennes will be speaking in Ann arbor
about his book and the pending investigations into the attack.
