WASHINGTON (AP)- Despite late
appeals from the White House, Roman
Catholic bishops voiced strong support
yesterday for a sweeping condemnation
of nuclear warfare, including an
assault on key aspects of U.S. strategic
policy. That pointed the nation's largest
Christian body to the forefront of the
The surge of support came at a
pivotal closing session of the National
Conference of Catholic Bishops in the
face of White House opposition. A
procession of speakers took the floor to
back the gist of the document.
Archbishop John Roach of St. Paul-
Minneapolis, the conference president,
said the mood of the bishops showed
''general endorsement of the direction''
taken in the draft pastoral letter.
The 25,000-word declaration of the
church's position denounces as im-
moral any use of nuclear weapons or in-
tent to use them.

Congress won't back
WASHINGTON (AP)- Republican
congressional leaders informed
President Reagan yesterday that he
simply does not have the votes to ad-
vance the last phase of his income tax
cut to January.
Senate Majority Leader Howard
Baker and House Republican Leader
Robert Michel delivered that
message-along with some other un-
pleasant news-in their first conference
with the president since the Nov. 2 elec-
"Well, I just said we don't have the
votes," Michel told reporters outside
the White House after the 45-minute
meeting. "It wouldn't be an easy task to
REAGAN IS considering asking
Congress to push up the date of the tax
cut-the third installment of his 25-
percent income tax reduction over
three years-as a way to stimulate the
Under that proposal the 5 percent cut
in tax rates due Jan. 1, 1984, and the
second 10 percent reduction in the
amount of tax withheld from worker
paychecks, due next July 1, would in-
stead take effect Jan. 1, 1983. The net
effect would be a 15 percent cut in tax
rates in 1983, rather than 10 percent,
and the full reduction would be felt in
paychecks at the start of the year.
That change also would increase aj
looming record deficit, already projec-
ted at upwards of $170 billion, by about
$15 billion, and the Republican leaders
said they feared it would have the effect
of increasing interest rates as well.
THE LEADERS also predicted it
would be difficult to make further cuts
in non-defense spending, despite
Reagan's assertion in New Orleans on
Tuesday that that is precisely where he
intended to cut.
"I think we've cut just about as much
as we can cut," Baker said. "We've
wrung a lot out of the non-defense side.
Now we are going to have to take a look
at the defense side."
He said several billion dollars could
be shaved from defense spending
because of the drop in inflation over the
past year, but added it would be
