WASHINGTON - House Republican leader Robert Michel
said yesterday that President Reagan understands he must
accept cuts in his planned defense buildup if he is to gain
GOP congressional support for deficit-reduction package.
Reagan met with Michel and other House Republicans as
the administration sought to fashion an all-GOP deficit-
reduction plan independent of the bipartisan panel that
reached a standoff after Reagan challenged it to find some
way to reduce the record red ink in his budget.
MICHEL (R-Ill.). said after the meeting that Reagan
hasn't specifically agreed to a figure by which he would be
willing to cut the growth in defense spending.
But Michel added, "The president understands what we're
going through up there on the Hill. And the president is a good
negotiator, and he know you don't give away the ball game
before you get to the table, but I think the president is
realistic enough to know that every dollar he requested on
defense he's not going to get."
Aides said it would be easier, although by no means cer-
tain, to gain GOP votes if the taxes were presented as part of
a package that includes spending reductions.
At the same time, House Democratic leader Jim Wright
(D-Texas) said Democrats are going ahead with their own
plans to cut the deficit as part of the regular budget process.
Wright said they hope to pass three components - slower
defense growth, tax increase and domestic spending cuts -
by the time Congress begins its Easter recess in mid-April.
Michel said Reagan is still willing to work with the Senate
Republicans' three-year plan, which was presented to the
president last week by leaders who told Reagan he is unlikely
to get the entire 13 percent increase in military spending he
Democrats vie for delegates

Lennon FBIfile remains secret
Mondale, hoping for a southern revival after four straight
losses to Hart, attacked the Colorado senator at stop after
campaign stop through Alabama, Florida and Georgia.
"DON'T be impressed by people who make an appearance
on the right side at the last minute," he said.
Hart cancelled a last-minute trip to Massachusetts after
late polls indicated he holds a comfortable lead there. He is
favored to win the Rhode Island primary, as well.
If both Hart and Mondale do well today, Michigan's St.
Patrick's Day caucus will become the focus of national
attention. Michigan should be almost as sure a bet for
Mondale as his home state of Minnesota because of the labor
vote, said national Hart campaign staffer Chuck Paquette.
"IF THERE'S one state that you can expect Walter
Mondale to do well in it's Michigan," said Paquette, who is
working here with state campaign leaders. "Nationally the
campaign is not counting on a win in Michigan," he said.
What the Hart camp hopes to do, Paquette said, is get at
least 20 percent of the votes in most of the state's
congressional districts. A candidate must receive at least 20
percent to win any of the delegates at stake.
Hart plans a visit to Detroit tomorrow, and Mondale is
expected to tour the state Thursday. Jackson has tentatively
planned a bus tour of southern Michigan with a stop in Ann
Arbor on Friday. He may stop in Lansing to testify in a
hearing on the legality of Saturday's caucus.
There are 511 delegates at stake on "Super Tuesday,"
more than one-fourth the total needed to win nomination at
the Democratic National Convention next summer. In
addition to the five primaries, Washington state, Oklahoma,
Nevada, Hawaii, and American Samoa are holding caucuses.
The results of a write-in primary for Americans living
abroad also will become known today.
LOS ANGELES (UPI) - A professor
who suspects John Lennon was the
target of "dirty tricks" during the
Nixon administration went to court
yesterday to force the government to
explain why the late Beatle's FBI file
should remain classified.
Jon Wiener, an associate professor of
history at the University of California
at Irvine, obtained documents last year
that revealed agents followed Lennon
for months because it was feared he
would lead a demonstration against
Richard Nixon at the 1972 convention.
ENTIRE passages of the classified
FBI and immigration documents, ob-
tained under the Freedom of Infor-
mation Act, were blacked out for
national security reasons. Wiener said
he will ask U.S. District Judge Robert
Takasugi to order the government to
provide more information about the
Wiener and his attorney, Mark
Rosenbaum of the American Civil
Liberties Union, said the FBI did not
provide an adequate description of the
censored documents, as required by
law when documents are withheld.
Wiener has said the withheld
documents could contain evidence of
"dirty tricks" or illegal acts carried out
to disrupt Lennon's personal life.
HE ALSO said the papers may reveal
that top Nixon aides were informed
about Lennon's activities, noting that
one censored document was addressed
to H. R. Haldeman.
Rosenbaum said yesterday's court
hearing, the first stage in Wiener's
Freedom of Information Act suit,
should give an indication of how
strongly the FBI and Justice Depar-
tment will oppose Wiener.
"This case could have an affect on all
freedom of information litigation
throughout the country," Rosenbaum
said. "There's a good chance it could

"Just in small checks, three to five

And that's just in the small checks."
Michigan's Hart campaign, which
began last March with about 50 people,
has ballooned to nearly 2,000 volunteers
since the New Hampshire primary,
said LSA senior Marc Dann, who for-
merly headed the state organization
During the summer, members of
Hart's national staff asked Dann and
Blumenthal to organize the senator's
scheduled campaign stop in Ann Arbor
last fall. After that, the duo landed the

HART'S national office has sent
several paid organizers to work with
the Michigan staff that until recently
has been operating in the back room of
Ann Arbor attorney George Sallade's
office on State Street.
Now the Hart headquarters have
spread throughout the state. But
despite the addition of professionals,
the Hart campaign's core is made up of
"These (students)nare among the
best. They really know what they're
doing," said Chuck Paquette, a staff
member on Hart's national campaign.
STUDENT volunteers are attempting
to convass every home in the city to
distribute literature on Hart's positions
and explain Michigan's little-publicized
and confusing caucus system.
"Nobody knows how to vote - or
where, or when," Blumenthal said.
To remedy that, Hart volunteers plan
to drive students from campus dor-
mitories to polling places, adds LSA
senior Jill Leckta, campus coordinator
for the Hart campaign.

Godre said although she is happy with
the policy, she thinks gays should still
work for a regents' bylaw prohibiting
discrimination, rather than just the
presidential policy statement.
MEMBERS OF the group Lesbian
and Gay Rights on Campus (LaGROC)
were demanding a bylaw change when
they first approached Shapiro in
December 1982, but when Shapiro said
last October he favored a statement
they -stopped pushing the bylaw change.
At the February regents meeting,
LaGROC members criticized earlier
drafts of the statement for containing
ambiguous language. One draft
released about six weeks ago said the
University "ought not" to discriminate
based on sexual preference, a weaker
version of yesterday's statement.
"The changes in the draft that
LaGROC requested have been fulfilled
and we are pleased to see that" said
LaGROC spokesperson Bruce Aaron,
The statement, which was released in
the regents agenda yesterday, reads:
. . educational and employment
decisions should be based on in-
dividuals' abilities and qualifications
and should not be based on irrelevant
factors of personal characteristics
which have no connection with
academic abilities or job performance.
Among the traditional factors which
are generally 'irrelevant" are age, sex,
religion and national origin. It is the
policy of the University of Michigan
that an individual's sexual orientation
be treated in the same manner.'"
