On the eve of the annual presidential address to
Congress, Wright, of Texas, delivered a virtual cam-
paign platform to reverse Reagan policies "to revive
the American dream, to renew the American spirit,
to rekindle America's faith in our future."
"In a world of distorted values, the United States -
whose example should be leading the world to sanity
- begins 1984 with our priorities cruelly deranged,"
Wright told a luncheon audience at the National Press
FORD, IN AN interview on ABC's "Good Morning,
America," said that "if you look at those outyear
future deficits of $170 billion to $180 billion, they're
scary and something has to be done about them."
Reminded that Reagan opposes adding taxes, Ford
said, "I respectfully disagree with him. I can't justify
the kind of deficits they are forecasting for calendar
"The only dark, ominous cloud on the economic
front is the forecast of those ... deficits" Ford said.
PRESIDENT, Reagan could face serious re-
election problems because of budget deficits and U.S.
involvement in Lebanon, but Democrats so far have
failed to exploit these and other issues, pollster Louis
Harris said yesterday.
I'd say Ronald Reagan is vulnerable and can be
taken," Harris told a breakfast meeting with repor-
At a separate session, the pollster for Democratic
front-runner Walter Mondale stressed the potential
political importance of the federal budget deficits,
especially if the candidate were to emphasize that
Peter Hart, Mondale's pollster, said only 42 percent
of Americans know that Reagan's budget deficits are
larger than those of any previous president. "Ob-
viously, we are going to try to carry that theme to the
other 58 percent," he said.

Faith in government is back on the
upswing, after more than two decades
of declining public confidence in
Washington's ability to lead the coun-
try, according to a University study.
Although only 31 percent of citizens
questioned said they trusted the gover-
nment to do what was right most of the
time, that was enough to reverse a long-
running trend and draw considerable
IN 1964, 62 percent of the people who
responded to a similar survey said they
stood behind their leaders. But a long
war in Vietnam, the disillusion of
Watergate, and 53 American's held
hostage in Iran steadily pulled the per-
centage to an all-time low of 23 percent
The recently released 1982 figures
show 31 percent of American's now
trust their government.
At first glance, the revival might
seem like a feather in President Ronald
Reagan's cap. Ironically, however,
Reagan's popularity was actually lower
in 1982 than former President Jimmy
Carter's was half-way through his term
according to Arthur Miller, a University
political science professor who conduc-
ted the survey.
THE STUDY also revealed some in-
teresting aspects of party politics.
Although Democrats were com-
plaining about the dangers of the
Reagan administration's ultra-
conservatism, their trust in the gover-
At the same time, Republican sup-
port for the president increased
dramatically while many Republicans
remained hesitant about trusting the
ODDLY ENOUGH, one reason for the
increase in confidence among
Democrats is - the Reagan ad-
ministraion's "attack on government
spending," Miller wrote in an article
published in Public Opinion last July.
"Between 1980 and '82 the population,
including Democrats, favored gover-
nment cuts," asserts Miller in the ar-
ticle. Thus, when the government
began to cut back on its spending, "the
Democrats viewed the administration
as being responsive to its needs."
Meanwhile, "Republicans who
favored cutbacks were less approving
of the administration, feeling that the
cutbacks were not great enough."

Liuzzo family -must pay
THURSDAY, JANUARY 26,.0 1984
(Continued from Page 1)
MEMBERS OF the Liuzzo family and
their attorney were unavailable for
comment yesterday. But former attor-
ney for the government Ann Robertson
said she was not dissatisfied with
Joiner's most recent decision.
"I have no complaints one way or
another with his tax of costs," she said
yesterday from her office in Bir-
The widely-publicized suit was filed
several years after Viola Liuzzo, a 39-
year-old white housewife, drove the
family's station wagon from Detroit to
Alabama to participate in the historic
Selma-to-Montgomery voting rights
march in 1965. She was gunned down on
a deserted highway while transporting
a black marcher back to Selma after
The shots that killed Liuzzo, and left
her passenger unharmed, were fired
from a car carrying three Ku Klux
Klansmen and FBI informant Gary
Thomas Rowe. The Liuzzo family
charged in their suit that the FBI
could have prevented the killing.
