Supreme Court rules
Milliken may aid Riley
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press international reports
LANSING (UPI) - The Michigan
Supreme Court yesterday ruled
Milliken may come to the aid of his em-
battled appointee, Justice Dorothy
Comstock Riley, in the suit seeking her
ouster from that body.
In a terse, one paragraph order, the
court granted Milliken permission to
file a brief "amicus curiae" as a legal
"friend" of Riley.
MILLIKEN has until 3 p.m. Jan. 21 to
deliver the brief.
Riley did not participate in the order,
which was unanimously supported by
the other six justices.
Gov. James Blanchard - who wants
Riley off the court - could not im-
mediately be reached for comment on.
BUT THE Blanchard administration
is known to be closely studying the
possibility of filing its own "amicus"
brief in the case. One administration of-
ficial- said such a move now seems
Riley, a Michigan Court of Appeals
judge, was named to the high court less
than a month before Milliken left office.
He appointed her to fill a vacancy left
by the death of Justice Blair Moody.
Milliken is fighting more than. one
battle to protect his eleventh-hour ap-
pointees. Attorney General Frank
Kelley said yesterday the Senate can
still reject the former governor's last
minute appointments and that Blan-
chard has the power to withdraw them.
KELLEY, A Democrat, issued the
opinion at the request of Senate
Democratic Leader William Faust
who battled with the lame duck Milliken
over the appointments issue during the
final weeks of the last legislative
Faust sought to limit the number of
appointments made by the Republican

U.N. offers to host summit
between U.S. and Soviets
UNITED NATIONS - The United Nations would be happy to provide the
necessary "shelter" for a U.S.-Soviet summit, Secretary-General Javier
Perez de Cuellar said on the eve of his meeting with President Reagan today.
Perez de Cuellar said yesterday that he "would be quite ready to offer
facilities" if Reagan raised the question of a summit during their White
The secretary-general said Wednesday that the United Nations also would
be "the ideal forum" for broadened Arab-Israeli talks, with his staff possibly
acting as a catalyst to blend various peace plans already on the table
Perez de Cuellar said he planned to discuss with Reagan or with
Secretary of State George Shultz his proposal for a meeting of the 15-nation
Security Council "at the highest possible level" to, among other thngs, give
impetus to the groundswell of public support for disarmament.
Joint Chiefs not told about cut
WASHINGTON - The Joint Chiefs of Staff were not consulted before Pres-
ident Reagan decided to cut proposed military spending for next year, Gen.
Charles Gabriel said yesterday. The Pentagon said later the Joint Chiefs
supported Reagan on the question anyway.
Gabriel, Air Force chief of staff, told reporters at a breakfast meeting that
"The part that bothers us most in the military is the personnel pay cuts."
He was referring to a freeze on any fiscal 1984 pay increases for the 2.1
million men and women in uniform. the freeze decision, backed by budget
director David Stockman, was reported earlier this week by sources in the
Pentagon and elsewhere in the administraton, but has not been
acknowledged by the White House.
Gabriel suggested it will be harder to attract qualified volunteers for
military service if pay is allowed to lag as it did in the late 1970s with what he
called "disastrous" results.
"We were not consulted in the way the cuts were made," he said, adding
that the service chiefs would have been willing to trade some procurement;
funds for a military pay increase.
Eniergy tax options considered
WASHINGTON - The Reagan Administration is considering a broad-based
tax on energy consumption as an option for raising $40 billion or more in
fiscal 1986 if it is needed to reduce the government's swollen deficits, ad-
ministration sources said yesterday.
The sources said energy taxes are high on Treasury Secretary Donald
Regan's list of possible revenue sources that would "trigger in," if
required, after Oct. 1, 1985, to keep the government's red ink below $100
President Reagan is expected to make a decision soon on several con-
tingency tax options recommended by Regan Wednesday. The president
must submit his proposed budget for fiscal 1984, which begins next fall, to
Congress by the end of this month.
The anonymous sources said Regan had several variations of energy taxes
and income tax surcharges in mind, including a fee on imported oil; a tax
that could be extended to domestic oil as well as imports; a so-called BTU
(British thermal unit) tax that sets levies based on the heat content of
various fuels; and a "windfall profits" tax or a severance tax on natural gas
that would be tied to removal of federal price controls in 1985.

AS GOODAS THE
STATE OF THE ARTIST
Claims for jols benef its up
WASHINGTON - Some 550,000 Americans applied for unemployment
benefits in the last week of 1982, a spurt of 35,000 over the previous week and
a reversal of the short decline that had heartened some economists.
The Labor Department reported yesterday that for the first time in five
weeks, there also was a rise in the insured unemployment rate - the propor-
tion of the 111 million-member U.S. labor force drawing jobless relief
checks. It climbed from 4.9 percent to 5.0 percent in the week ending Jan. 1.
Some private economists had cited a trend of declining applications for
unemployment benefits in recent weeks as signaling a peaking of
joblessness, which stood at 10.8 percent in December, the highest since 1940.
The department's Employment and Training Administration'said,
however, the total number of jobless workers drawing regular unem-
ployment benefits under state-run programs rose by 13,000 to 4,338,000 in
the week ending Christmas day. following a sharp decline of 168,000 the
.Chamber rejects Reagan's
'Hire one worker' proposal
WASHINGTON - The new chairman of U.S. Chamber of Commerce yester-
day brushed aside President Reagan's appeal for each business to hire one
unemployed worker, saying "It is probably a good idea - but nothing more
than a good idea."
"This gives the press something to chortle about," Thompson said of the
Reagan appeal. His remarks came in a get-acquainted session with repor-
During a Dec. 23 press briefing at the White House, Reagan was asked
what he planned to do about the post-Depression record 10.8 percent unem-
ployment, which has left some 12 million Americans out of work. II
"I know that there are some businesses that, themselves, are faced with
troubles and cannot do this," Reagan said. "But there must be others that
could probably take even more than one."
Presidential counselor Edwin Meese had said in December, when Reagan
first broached the idea, that the hiring program was one begun by the Rev.
Leon Sullivan, founder of a job training program called Opportunities In-
dustrialization Center in Philadelphia.
