Senate stalls school

prayer bill

WASHINGTON- The Senate refused
yesterday to halt a three-day liberal
filibuster that has been blocking action
on pro-school prayer legislation. The
vote was 50-39-10 short of the
necessary 60.
Senate Republican leader Howard
Baker (R-Tenn.) said the Senate would
vote again today on a petition to limit
the debate.
THE SENATE vote would have
limited the prayer debate to 100 hours,
but 60 votes are required to invoke the
proceduralmove, known as cloture.
Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.) and his
conservative allies, however, planned
to try again today, and both sides con-
ceded privately they would eventually
win cloture.
Still, time appeared to be on the side
of the liberals, led by Sen. Lowell
Weicker (R-Conn.) despite the political
popularity of the prayer measure.
THE LEGISLATION urged by Helms
would forbid the Supreme Court to in-
terfere with voluntary prayer in public
schools, including jurisdiction over any
law approved by a state legislature or a

ruling by lower court, a move which
critics say is a direct attack on the in-
dependence of the federal courts.
Despite the likely outcome of the
cloture vote, liberals have an arsenal of
parliamentary weapons still remaining
which they can use as Congress winds
down toward adjourning for the
November elections, probably by early
next month.
One of them is time. The prayer
measure is attached to a federal debt
limit extension, which must be ap-
proved by Oct. 1 if the government is to
be able to pay its bills routinely and
function without disruption.
AS THAT date draws near, the
pressure will build against both conser-
vatives and liberals to resolve the issue
one way or the other.
Weicker will likely be urged to give
up and let the prayer proposal pass the
Senate and go to a House-Senate con-
ference committee where the outcome
would be uncertain.
But there could be even greater

pressure on the conservatives to take a
symbolic victory, and let the debt
ceiling bill be approved but stripped of
any prayer amendment.
HELMS, gesturing with a sweeping
motion, accused the liberals of incon-
sistency, saying they supported the
Voting Rights Act but now are
"piously" arguing that the prayer
measure improperly would limit the
high court's jurisdiction.
Helms contended the Voting Rights
Act also limited the court, but he did not
explain how.
"That is basically, fundamentally
wrong," said Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-
Mass,), standing 15 feet from Helms.
President Reagan said last week he
wants Congress, before it quits for the
year, to approve a constitutional amen-
dment to allow voluntary school
"They (the White House) want a con-
stitutional amendment, but they're not
shooting down Helms' measure," a
Senate leadership source said.

William "Bubba" Paris, of the San
Francisco 49ers all should be added to
the list of graduates. Each needs only a
few credits to earn diplomas.
"They'll get the degree when they
need the degree," Schembechler said.
Sports Illustrated reported August 23
that more than 40 percent of Schem-
bechler's former players in the pros
never graduated. But the magazine
" Representatives

used dated figures, failing to include
players from the last two Wolverine
teams and incorrectly classifying two
professionals who have earned degrees.
ONE OF those, Jim Smith of the Pit-
tsburgh Steelers, returned to the
University four years after he was draf-
ted to finish his degree.
Sports Illustrated questioned Schem-
bechler's concern for the academic
success of his players in a story about
the new United States Football League.
The coach, who prides himself on the
scholastic achievement of his team, has
been an outspoken critic of the league's
intent to draft senior football players in
December-before they have a chance
to earn their diplomas.
Yesterday, Schembechler tempered
his criticism of the new league, saying
that a rule granting the Detroit fran-
chise territorial rights over Michigan
players will give them a better chance
to graduate. By keeping the players in
the neighborhood, the rule will allow
them to return to campus for com-

pletion of their studies, he said.
Schembechler has assigned his
recruiting coordinator, Fritz Seyforth,
to prepare a response to the sports
magazine. Before being presented with
the Daily's findings, Seyforth said he
thought as many as 85 percent of the
former Wolverines in the NFL had
Commenting on the Sports Illustrated
story, Seyforth said, "It's too bad. It
really hurt (Schembechler). He spends
a lot of time worrying about
'U' Towers threatened
The 19th floor of the University
Towers apartment complex received a
bomb threat early yesterday morning
according to Ann Arbor police. The
threat, received at approximately 1
a.m., told building administration that
the bomb was scheduled to explode at-2
a.m. Apartment officials alerted
residents, telephoning them at 1:30
a.m. to announce that the building was
being evacuated until the threat was
over. Ann Arbor police resj5nding to
the call found nothing. No fdllow-up in-
vestigation is planned.

Honduran hostages still held
SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras - The anti-terrorist Cobra Battalion yester-
day ringed the building where guerrillas held an estimated 80 hostages, in-
cluding two Cabinet ministers, and negotiators tried to end the four day
About 10 guerrillas, who shot their way into the Chamber of Commerce
building Friday, have made repeated threats to kill the hostages unless the
Honduran government frees 80 people the guerrillas say are being held as
political prisoners.
A top Honduran official, who requested anonymity, said it was hoped that
the arrival Sunday of Andrea Cordero de Montezemolo, the papal nuncio for
Honduras and Nicaragua, would help speed the negotiations between the
government and the guerrillas.
Col. Daniel Beli Castillo, head of the Honduran security forces, said
yesteray he was unaware of any plans to take the building by force. Mem-
bers of the anti-terrorist Cobra Battalion and scores of other army soldiers
took positions around the one-story building in this industrial city 110 miles
northwest of the Honduran capital of Tegucigalpa.
House OKs ban on dumping
nuclear wastes in oceans
WASHINGTON - Legislation imposing a two-year moratorium on dump-
ing low-level nuclear wastes in the oceans was approved yesterday by a
voice vote in the House.
The bill, which had been opposed by the Reagan administration, would
require comprehensive environmental assessments at the end of the two-
year period before a permit for ocean disposal of low-level radioactive wasts
could be issued.
Congress would be given 45 days to review and block issuance of each
The government halted disposal of low-level wastes in the ocean in 1970.
Backers of the two-year dumping moratorium said it is designed to head
off expected administration efforts to resume use of the oceans for disposal
of low-level wastes such as outdated submarines.
The Environmental Protection Administration would be required to
designate specific ocean sites for dumping after performing detailed
analyses on the sites.
Floods sweep El Salvador
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador - Relief workers dug through tons of mud
and rushed supplies to survivors of floods and mudslides that officials fear
may have killed as many as 500 people.
"The damages are astronomical," said Interior Ministry spokesman
Orrego Candray.
He said it will take a "tremendous amount" of work to clean up after the
floods and mudslides that swept through parts of the capital and a 150-mile
coastal stretch over the weekend.
The government has declared a national state of emergency. Heavy rains
from the same weather system also flooded Pacific coastal areas in neigh-
boring Guatemala, where authorities reported eight people killed and an un-
specified number missing.
The lastest official report on the flooding in El Salvador said 173 bodies had
been found and at least 1,500 people were displaced.
Officials said the flooding was the worst natural disaster to hit the Central
American nation since an estimated 2,000 people died in an earthquake in
West German to ride
space shuttle in 1983
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - A West German named to become the first
foreigner to travel into orbit aboard America's space shuttle next year said
yesterday he believes the European Space Agency is not getting its money's
worth from NASA.
Ulf Merbold told reporters he doesn't think the Europeans are getting
enough for their $1 billion investment in the Spacelab part of the space shut-
tle program.
Merbold, 41, was born in Greiz, now part of East Germany, and raised in
Stuttgart, West Germany, following the partitioning of Germany after World
War II.
Merbold and a second payload specialist, Byron Lichtenberg, 34, of the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, will join four other Americans in the
ninth shuttle flight, scheduled for launch from Cape Canaveral Sept. 30, 1983.
U.S. income rises .3 percent
WASHINGTON - Americans' personal income rose just 0.3 percent in
August, the least since March, the government reported yesterday. The
gain probably was really a loss after subtracting the effect of inflation.
Consumers' spending rose a bit more ? 0.7 percent. Economists and
government officials said they still expected the July tax-rate cut and other
recent income gains to encourage Americans to spend even more, thus
helping pull the economy out of its 13-month recession.
But they hardly sounded confident that any spending surge was imminent.
And they said the current July-September quarter likely will show little or
no growth for the overall economy.
One private economist, Allen Gutheim of Wharton Econometrics, said "it
could be several months" before big spending increases show up, perhaps

not before the Christmas buying season.
A lot depends on auto sales, he said. He sitll expects an increase, but "the
question of when is still completely up in the air." Commerce Secretary
Malcolm Baldrige said in a prepared statement,
"Signs of an acceleration in consumer spending may begin to appear in
September data."
