Senate kills tuition tax credit plan
WASHINGTON (UPI)-The Senate,
rejecting pleas from President Reagan,
killed tuition tax credit legislation
yesterday, dooming the measure for at
least this year.
After an hour of sharp debate, the
Senate voted 59-38 to table the measure,
killing legislation that has been a top
Reagan priority since he entered the
IT WAS THE second setback for
Reagan in the Republican-controlled
Senate in as many days. Tuesday, the
Senate rejected his natural gas
deregulation bill. Congress adjourns
this week until January.
The tuition tax credit defeat came af-
ter the Senate was warned it would un-
dercut the public school system, swell
deficits and favor the affluent.
Sen. Arnest Hollings (D-S.C.) said it
would create a "revenue hem-
orrhage" and charged it was a "ripoff
for the rich."
THE BILL, which would provide tax
relief for parents who send children to
private elementary and secondary
schools, would give taxpayers a credit
for 50 percent of tuition expenses with
the maximum credit rising from $100 in
1983 to $300 in 1985 and following years.
The maximum credit would be
allowed only to taxpayers making
$40,000 or less. Those making over
$50,000 would not be eligible. The
estimated cost is $800 million a year.
The bill had no chance of enactment
this year. Opponents had signaled they
would filibuster the legislation in the
closing days of Congress if the bill had
survived the test vote.
THE BILL was offered as an amen-
dment to a minor House tariff bill in an
effort to get a vote before adjournment.
In the sharpest exchange of the
debate, Sen. Daniel Moynihan
(D-N.Y.), trying to diffuse charges the
bill would hurt public education, said
that supporters, time and again, said
''public schools come first.''
But Hollings replied, "The president
says public schools come last."

Carter documents found in Reagan's files
WASHINGTON - Highly classified
documents from the Carter ad-
ministration have been found by
congressional investigators in files
from President Reagan's 1980 election
campaign, a' House subcommittee
chairman said yesterday.
"We've found some 'your eyes only'
type of stuff. That means
classified - the highest classification,"
said Rep. Donald Albosta, (D-Mich.),
whose panel is probing how Carter
White House materials reached the
Albosta, who announced that h6 has
set Jan. 26 as the tentative start for
public hearings, said the classified
materials dealt with foreign policy but
declined to assess their sensitivity.
He also refused to say whether the
documents were found in the Reagan
campaign archives at the Hoover In-
stitution at Stanford University or in
personal files maintained by former
Reagan campaign staffers.
"Obviously, we looked in Reagan
files, not his personal files but things
pertaining to his election," Albogta said
in an interview granted to elaborate on
a prepared statement issued earlier.
The statement said House in-

Missiles spur protest in England
LONDON - Police dragged screaming and weeping women from the gates of
Greenham Common Air Base yesterday, and Defense Secretary Michael Heseltine
vowed deployment of the new U.S. cruise missiles would continue despite the anti-
"We see no cause for changing," he declared in a radio interview.
"You don't reconsider matters of such moment in the context of unruly and
unreprehensible behavior of a very limited number of people." Heseltine was
sprayed with red paint Tuesday by demonostrators at Manchester University:
At the Greenham Common base, 50 miles west of London, where C-14 Starlif-
ter transport planes brought in missile shipments Monday and Tuesday, women
protesters staged a sit-down protest outside the main entrance.
Twenty-three women were charged with obstruction, then released, police said.
Most returned to the base to prepare for further demonstration.
In Rome, Socialist Premier Bettino Craxi's coalition government easily won
parliamentary approval yeserday for Italy's plans to install 12 cruise nuclear
missiles in Sicily.
U.S. troops in Grenada to be
pulled out before Christmas
WASHINGTON - All American combat troops will be pulled out of Grenada by
Dec. 23, a White House spokesman said yesterday, but there were indications other
U.S. personnel may stay longer.
Deputy press secretary Larry Speakes told reporters that Secretary of State
George Shultz informed Congress Tuesday that the troops still on the Caribbean
island will be withdrawn two days before Christmas.
"We have indicated to the Congress that there is no need for congressional ac-
tion, in our opinion, on (the) war powers (act)," Speakes said.
"We don't anticipate there will be any additional hostilities and combat troops
would be out, as the Deapartment of Defense said, before the 60-day period ex-
pires, although we do not acknowledge the need for a 60-day period."
There are an estimated 3,500 U. S. troops in Grenada, down from the 6,000 there
during the invasion. Pentagon officials said they have not drawn up any plans for a
withdrawal by Christmas.
When asked about the status of other U.S. military personnel who may remain on
the island, such as construction workers or medical personnel, Speakes said,
"None of those issues has been decided."
New Soviet missile may have
Western origins, report says
LONDON - Moscow has developed its own version of the low-flying cruise mis-
sile now being deployed in Britain and the technology was probably stolen from the
West, an authoritative defense journal said yesterday.
Jane's Defense Review revealed that Moscow has its own low-flying cruise
missile - the SSN-X-21. The development has created a "a great deal of concern
among decision-makers in Washington," the report said.
The submarine-launched Russian cruise missile with a range of about 1,500
miles should enter service early next year,Jane's said. Air and ground-launched
Soviet cruises will follow in coming years, Jane's said.
A Jane's spokesman said the development of the missile was "dramatic"
because for the first time Moscow has a cruiseype missile that can hit targets on
land rather than only at sea.
The Soviet cruise "reportedly uses turbofan and microelectric technology which
the Soviets have obtained from the. West,"Jane's saidc One specialist said that
meant some of the technology was obtained secretly.
Bus line to resume operations
PHOENIX, Ariz. - Union leaders representing Greyhound strikers from around
the nation arrived in Phoenix yesterday as a federal mediator reported progress in
talks to end a 15-day-old walkout.
Meanwhile, America's biggest bus line prepared to resume limited service
Despite the bargaining, a Greyhound spokesman said a settlement did not ap-
pear to be near.
"We've made a lot of progress on concepts. Yesterday (Tuesday) was not only a
long day, but a good day," said chief mediator Sam Franklin, whose negotiators
shuttled between the hotel rooms of bargainers from Greyhound and the
Amalgamated Council of Greyhound Local Unions.
The strike by 12,700 bus drivers and terminal, maintenance and office workers
began Nov. 2 after union negotiators rejected a contract poposal including big
wage cuts and benefit concessions.
The strike shut down the company's operations, which served the 48 contiguous
states and accounted for 60 percent of America's intercity bus service.
But Greyhound has vowed to resume some service in 27 states today with 1,300
workers, many of them previously unemployed, who signed up to take the strikers'
Cypriot president rules out
use of force to reunify island
NICOSIA, Cyprus - President Spyros Kyprianou yesterday ruled out the use of
force to reunify Cyprus, but Greek and Turkish troops were reported on alert after
the Turkish-occupied sector of the island declared itself independent.
Kyprianou blamed the new Cyprus crisis on the Turkish military government,
which recognized the new state after an emergency Cabinet meeting in Ankara.
In athens, Greek government spokesman Dimitrios Maroudas told reporters the
Socialist government was "not contemplating to declare a mobilization or send
warships to Cyprus" in reaction to the Turkish Cypriot move.
However, military sources in Athens said army reservists in specialized units
have been called up for duty along Greece's northern border with Turkey.
Kyprianou indicated he would ask the U.N. Security Council to impose sanctions
against Turkey and northern Cyprus..
Turkey, which invaded the long-disputed Mediterranean island in 1974, has
25,000 troops in the newly declared Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus - sent nine
years ago, to protect the rights of Cyprus' ethnic Turkish minority.
