Peace plan in
The Michigan Daily-Tuesday, January 11, 1983-Page 3
Reagan eyes tax
hikes to cure
By LAURIE DELATER
"The United States must not be lulled
into short-term optimism" because
most of the fighting in. Lebanon has
ceased, the Middle East correspondent
for the Sunday Times of London said at
the University Sunday.,
Robin Wright, a 1971 Michigan
graduate, expressed the urgency of im-
plementing President Reagan's Sept. 1
peace initiative in a lecture before a
crowd of 350 at the new Alumni Center.
AS THE FIRST participant in the
Alumni Association's Alumna in
Residence Program, Wright said that
the peace plan must be initiated within
the next six to nine months.
If the administration does not move
quickly, the initiative is likely to be
shelved until after the 1984 election in
order to keep the plan from becoming
an election issue, Wright said.
She added that the Soviets will not sit
back while Lebanon struggles under a
new leadership and watch U.S. influen-
ce grow in the region.
FINALLY, SHE said the moderates
of the PLO right now appear willing to
recognize Israel's right to exist. but
unless the United States capitalizes on
the moment, there is a very real danger
that the radicals in the group will
prevail. Although the PLO ,may have
faded into the background, she said, it
still holds the political clout to stop an
If the United States fails to establish a
peace plan soon, she concluded, there
will be another war, one "that will af-
fect everyone, in everyway."
Wright, a 1969 Daily sports editor,
received her bachelor's degree (1970)
and masters in communications (1971)
from the University. She began her
professional career as assistant over-
seas news editor for the Christian
Science Monitor, after which she
covered Africa for The Washington
Post and CBS News.
The journalist concludes her six-day
stay on campus in a speech for the Cen-

Studies today at 3:30 p.m. She met with
students yesterday to discuss the perils
of war correspondence.

WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Reagan is giving serious thought to
seeking higher taxes for 1985 and
beyond to bring the government's
burgeoning budget deficits under con-
trol, administration sources said
One source, asking not to be iden-
tified, said the president appeared
receptive in general to the tax idea
during an Oval Office meeting yester-
day with senior economic advisers, and
ordered the Treasury Department to
develop specific proposals.
REAGAN, FACING awesome
deficits that could swell from a record
$200 billion in 1984 to nearly $300 billion
by 1988, also was considering proposals
for reducing his military spending
plans, freezing spending for certain
non-military programs and helping the
Under intense pressure from vir-
tually all his advisers and political
allies to trim his record defense budget,
Reagan scheduled separate meetings
A personal computer and spare parts,
together valued at $1,150, were stolen
from an apartment in the 1300 block of
Hill St. Police said thieves apparently
entered through an unlocked door
sometime between 10 p.m. Saturday
and 3 a.m. Sunday and took the equip-
Office equipment taken
Thieves stole $4,795 worth of office
equipment and cash over the weekend
from three area businesses, all housed
in the same building at 210 Huron View"
Drive. Police said Unitec Construction
Services, Howard King Associates, and
H.A.M. Corporation, were robbed bet-
ween Friday afternoon and Sunday
The burglars apparently forced open
the front doors of the offices and made
off with the equipment. Among the
stolen items were three typewriters;
dictaphone equipment, a radio, and $95
yesterday to deal with that issue.
Several aides said they were hopeful
the president would approve a modest
cut for 1984 and larger reductions in
military spending for 1985 through 1988.
The president and his top advisers
are trying to reach final decisions this
week on the budget plan he must send
Congress on Jan. 31. The budget covers
fiscal 1984, which begins Oct. 1.
THE PRESIDENT already has ap-
proved administration plans to ask
Congress to cut $33 billion froi
domestic programs in 1984 to keep the
deficit from growing above $200 billion.
The administration sources, none of
whom wanted to be named, said budget
director David Stockman has specific
programs in mind for cuts, but the
president may expand the effort to in-
clude a partial non-defense spending
freeze to appease congressional
Democrats and Republicans who have
called for holding 1984 spending at 1983
Among the targets mentioned for
freezes are government salaries and
the automatic cost-of-living increases
each year in social benefit programs,
such as Medicare, Medicaid and food
STILL UP in the air, sources said, is
whether the president will propose
Social Security benefit reductions or
tax increases in his 1984 budget to deal
with the pension system's deficit. A
presidential decision on this sensitive
matter hinges on whether a bipartisan
Social Security commission can agree
on a course of action by Saturday's
deadline, they said.
One tax-raising plan that could wind
up in the 1984 budget plan would require
workers to pay taxes on employer-paid
health insurance premiums beyond a
certain limit. Sources said a specific
ceiling had yet to be decided, but they
said the idea is to keep basic insurance
coverage tax-free and to tax only
unusually generous provisions. %
THIS PLAN, they said, involves only
modest tax increases and is intended
primarily to control rising health care
costs, not to narrow the deficit.
Registration continues this week for the ACU-1 Games Tournament,
scheduled for Jan. 22 and 23. Events include pool, table soccer, table tennis,
chess, and backgammon. A $2 registration fee must be paid by Jan. 21 at the

in six months than administrators are
attempting to trim in the five years of
well-planned internal reductions in the
-Administrators, who had been expec-
ting the cut since early last month, said
they had made some plans for saving
money but not nearly enough to cover
"We had taken some steps to slow
down some equipment and library pur-
chases in anticipation of a possible
(budget cutting) executive order," said
Kennedy, "(but) this goes way beyond
any of our expectations."
FOR THE meantime, administrators
said they will solve the cash flow dif-
ficulties by borrowing from other funds
within the University and pressure the
state into solving its problems as soon
"Although the state's current fiscal
problem has been clear for some mon-
ths, I am alarmed at the lack of
progress in developing an appropriate
response up to this point, Shapiro said.
"I sincerely hope that Governor Blan-
chard and the legislature can resolve
this dilemma quickly."
The governor also froze the level of
state employment at 59,500 and ordered
department directors to report each
month on compliance. Although the
Milliken administration had been
trying to hold down employment as
well, the payroll increased in Novem-
ber and December for reasons not well
understood at this point.
