Social Security clears Senate

(Continued from Page 1)
what the conferees are willing to agree
to."
Sen. Robert Dole (R-Kan.), chairman
otthe Finance Committee, warned that
*Reagan would veto the rescue bill if
Long's amendment should survive the
House-Senate conference.
Lonlg, asked about charges that his
amendment was a tactic to permit
federal workers to avoid ever coming

under Social Security, said, "That's
just so much smoke, nothing to it." He
said his amendment would ensure that
Congress does devise a supplementary
pension plan.
Dole countered that "I'm yet to be
convinced this is not just a game to
prevent them from ever coming into
Social Security."
Sen. John Heinz (R-Pa.), like Dole a

member of the presidential commission
that fashioned the compromise, warned
that taking federal employees out of the
package could destroy the bipartisan
consensus and "it would be like trying
to put Humpty Dumpty back together."
Current federal workers would not be
affected in any case. They would con-
tinue to relay on their own pension
system.

House passes Democratic budget

(Continued from Page 1)
spending but had a slightly higher deficit.
'he vote represented a substantial
yktory for O'Neill and the entire
Democratic leadership, who suf-
fered one defeat after another at the
bands of Reagan and the Republicans
during his first two years in office.
4HE HOUSE plan undoubtedly will
be revamped in. the Republican con-
trolled Senate, and some officials
predict a gridlock as the two houses try
to reach agreement on the final tax and
g spending prescription for the fiscal

year beginning Oct. 1. But Democrats
counted on their victory giving them
leverage in the conference committee
that will have to iron out differences
between the versions of the two houses.
Sen. Pete Domenici (R-N.M.), chair-
man of the Senate Budget Committee,
declared the Democratic plan "un-
workable," adding, "It's very
questionable fiscal policy. I don't
believe it could be implemented, even
in the House."
As chairman of the Senate Danel.
Domenici has been a consistent ad-

vocate of lower defense spending than
Reagan favors. But he said the House
action will "cause a lot of people in the
Senate to look at a higher defense"
figure.
Democrats hold a 268-166 majority
over Republicans. With their strength
padded by an additional 26 seats won
in the November elections, they are at-
tempting to regain the budget initiative
that Reagan and his fellow Republicans
took two years ago.

Reagan proposes new defense system

(Continued from Page 1)
"Yet current technology has attained
a level of sophistication where it is
reasonable for us to begin this effort,"
Reagan said. "It will take years,
probably decades, of effort on many
fronts."
THE MX MISSILE is designed to be
an offensive weapon and a secret Pen-
tagon document directs planning for
creating a "Secure Reserve Force with
enduring survivability so that the U.S.
will never be without nuclear offensive
capabilities while still threatened by
enemy nuclear forces."'
In an apparent effort to replace this
system, Reagan proposed a long-term
program that would employ high
technology to build a network of

weapons that could "intercept and
destroy strategic ballistic missiles"
before they reach the United States.
He said until such a defensive system
could become operational, current
policies and weaponry would remain
the backbone of the U.S. deterrent
policies.
REAGAN'S PROPOSALS came as he
renewed his push for a major defense
buildup, even as the House neared a
vote on a Democratic budget plan
which would slash that increase by half.
The United States and the Soviet
Union now are virtually banned by
treaty from deploying an anti-ballistic
missile system (ABM). But "Tonight,
consistent with our obligations under

the ABM treaty and recognizing the
need for close consultation with our
allies, I am taking an important first
step," that would employ different
technologies, Reagan said.
Specifically, Reagan said he was
"directing a comprehensive and inten-
sive effort to define a long-term resear-
ch and development program to
achieve our ultimate goal of
eliminating the threat posed by
strategic nuclear missiles.
"This could pave the way for arms
control measures to eliminate the
weapons themselves," Reagan said.
Corrections
The object of Tuesday's Greek Week
Waiter Race was to see which con-
testant could fill the most glasses of
beer in a given period of time. In a pic-
ture in yesterday's Daily, it was in-
correctly reported that the object was
to see which team could drink the most
beer.
The Coalition for Better Housing was
formed six years ago. An article in
yesterday's Daily incorrectly reported
that the group had been created recen-
tly.

FBI informant denies killing

(Continued from Page 1)
WILKINS, WHO testified Tuesday in
a videotaped deposition, said Rowe
fired the shots which killed Liuzzo. On
Monday Eugene Thomas, who was
driving the car in which the Klansmen
"were riding, said he believed Rowe
'fired two or three shots at Liuzzo's car.
"e said he did not actually see what
hAppened.
,Former Attorney General Ramsey
Clark,who was assigned to coordinate
federal protection for the march from

Selma to Montgomery in which Liuzzo
had participated earlier in the day, also
testified yesterday.
"The racial tension of the march was
of the most intense order," Clark said.
"Safety was my overwhelming con-
cern."
The trial will resume this morning at
8:30, and is expected to continue
through next week.
