Salvador
to curb
police
arrests
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (AP)
- The military command has ordered
army commanders and police chiefs to
curtail arrests by plainclothes agents
and to notify the Red Cross in all arrest
cases, a Western diplomat says.
The diplomat said the order by Def-
ense Minister Eugenio Casanova came
after a Dec. 11 visit by Vice President
George Bush, who called on the gover-
nment to curb killings by rightist death
squads.
BUSH HAD urged Salvadoran
leaders during his visit to stop arrests
by the "heavily armed men dressed in
civilian clothes" who often figure in
stories of disappearance, torture and
death.
The deaths squads believed linked to
government security forces have been
blamed for most of the 39,000 civilian
deaths since civil war began four years
ago. The Salvadoran Human Rights
Commission, a left-leaning independent
organization, has claimed an additional
4,000 people have been arrested and
"disappeared."
The defense minister's order, issued
in December, prohibits the army from
making arrests in civilian clothes, ac-
cording to the diplomat.
HE SAID members of the security
forces - the national guard, national
police and treasury police - can make
such arrests, but must reveal their
identity to the suspect's family.
The diplomat said the order also
spelled out that the Red Cross must be
advised of any arrest and of the
suspect's whereabouts.

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
Warsaw Pact nations propose
talks to ban chemical weapo┬░ns
WASHINGTON-President Reagan said yesterday the United States and
China "stand on common ground" in the quest for peace and opposition to
Soviet expansionism, but Premier Zhao Ziyang says the relationship "is far
below the level it should have attained."
After welcoming Zhao to the White House, Reagan and the highest-ranking
official in the Chinese government met privately for a two-hour discussion
that U.S. officials said was dominated from the start by the sensitive issue of
U.S. support for Taiwan.
A senior American official, who briefed reporters only on the condition
that he not be identified, said Reagan "was canded about the fact that we
take seriously the question of commitments to old friends."
"We don't walk away from commitments, and that's a governing aspect of
this whole problem," said the official. "We would be kidding ourselves if we
think that this issue was ever going to simply disappear or that their concer-
ns would not be voiced."
Although the United States has withdrawn diplomatic recognition of
Taiwan as the legitimate government of the Chinese mainland, it has con-
tinued to supply arms to the Nationalist-ruled island while insisting that its
future be determined peacefully, with the participation of both China and
Taiwan.
U.S.-China relations not up
to par, Chinese premier says

Blanchard says tax cuts unlikely

LANSING, Mich. (UPI)-Gov.
James Blanchard confirmed yesterday
his administration is considering ways
to further ease the income tax burden,
but said major alterations in the levy
are unlikely.
Blanchard said the state's ability to
grant further tax relief is dependent in
part on the economy, and noted
revenues at this point are at or slightly
below forecasted levels.
HE USED particularly harsh
language in denouncing what he sees as
the irresponsibility of lawmakers

pushing for large tax cuts. The income
tax dropped from 6.35 percent to 6.1
percent Jan. 1.
"The real problem is all the spenders
. who try to convince unsuspecting
taxpayers that they are their friends,''
the governor said, admitting he has
problems with lawmakers in both par-
ties.
"We've got a lot of people who are
simply reckless fiscally in this state."
Blanchard made his remarks one day
after Senate Republican Leader John
Engler predicted a GOP takeover in the

Senate and election-year jitters in the
Democrat-dominated House will
produce a tax decrease this year.
Blanchard confirmed that the ad-
ministration is looking at a range of op-
tions, including increasing the personal
exemption and expanding property tax
credits. A larger exemption, he noted,
"would make the tax more
progressive."
Despite the recent success of anti-tax
recalls, Blanchard warned that the
people ultimately will judge it "very
bad government" if lawmakers "cut
taxes with money they don't have."

courtroom,
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP)-A man waiting
trial on a misdemeanor charge
wrestled a gun away from a bailiff and
opened fire in a courtroom yesterday,
killing one officer and wounding two
others before he was shot by another
bailiff in a hallway.
The gunman had a shotgun, a rifle
and a handgun concealed in a knap-
sack, police said. But there were con-
flicting reports as to whether he used
one of his own weapons or only the gun
he took from the bailiff.
THOMAS PROVENZANO, 34, of Win-
ter Park, was waiting to be arraigned
on a charge of resisting arrest when the
shooting erupted at midmorning in the
crowded Orange County courthouse,
police said.
A bailiff, Arnie Wilkerson, 60, was
pronounced dead at the scene. Bailiff

k oll ab
kis bailiff
Harry Dalton, 53, and county correc-
tions officer Mark Parker, 19, were in
critical condition in separate hospitals.
Provenzane was in stable condition
with a gunshot to the chest.
COUNTY JUDGE LEE CONSER,
waiting to try Provenzano on two
resisting-arrest counts resulting from a
traffic infraction, said he believed he
was the target.
Upon hearing the first shot, "I got
behind the bench and heard at least
another five or six shots," the shaken
judge told reporters.
Conser said he had called Proven-
zano's case "and he came through the
swinging doors. But I told him he would
have to wait for his attorney." Proven-
zano had a hand in his pocket, "and I
mentioned it to a bailiff," Conser said.

MOSCOW-The Soviet-led Warsaw Pact yesterday proposed a ban on the
use of chemical weapons in Europe that would be negotiated at an East-West
conference later this year.
The proposal was delivered to the United States, its NATO allies and other
European nations by the Soviet Foreign Ministry, Tass said.
It came a week before Secretary of State George Shultz is scheduled to
meet with Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko in Stockholm to discuss
European security and other matters.
"The Warsaw Treaty member states consider it advisable to hold in 1984 a
meeting of plenipotentiary representatives for a preliminary exchange of
views with the NATO member countries and other European states concer-
ned on the question of ridding Europe of Chemical weapons," the proposal
said.
According to the proposal text, the talks would be parallel to the U.N.
sponsored talks in Geneva calling for a global ban on chemical weapons.
Pilot praised after plane crashes
BRIDGETON, Mo.-Authorities praised the pilot of a disabled DC-3 cargo
plane yesterday for steering the craft clear of a residential subdivision
before it crashed moments after takeoff.
"I'd say it was 100 yards or less. I think everyone is very fortunate," said
Col. Gordon Lewis, assistant Bridgeton police chief.
Pat Cordle, 43, a resident of the subdivision, said the plane passed at roof-
top level behind his house near Interstate 7 as it plunged to the ground;
headed back toward Lambert St. Louis International Airport minutes after
its takeoff.
"His engines were backfiring when I saw him," Cordle said. "He was a
heck of a pilot, because he got his plane headed toward the highway-and he
had been heading toward the subdivision."
Workers save failing steel mill
WEIRTON, W. Va. - Weirton Steel becomes the nation's largest employee-
owned company today, culminating a 2-month battle by steelworkers to save
their mill, their jobs and a way of life in this company town.
National Intergroup Inc. officials have scheduled a 4 p.m. ceremony to
sign over the massive mill to the workers, who are taking 18 percent wage
and benefit cuts as part of their bid to keep the massive Northern Panhandle
plant in business.
Officials of the employee-owned Weirton Steel Corp. plan to hand over
a check for about $70 million toward the total purchase price of $386 million,
with the remainder underwritten by lines of credit from major banks.
The alternative was to see the mill scaled down to a finishing plant em-
ploying just 1,500 of the present 7,300 workers. Several thousand more were
already on layoff when the parent company, then called National Steel, an-
nounced in March 1982 that it either would sell the plant to the -workers or
dramatically cut back operations.
French peace forces attacked
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Guerrillas staged two attacks against French peace-
keeping forces yesterday, soon after Syrian-backed rebels dashed hopes for
a Lebanese peace plan by demanding new concessions from the Beirut
government.
"There were two simultaneous attacks," said French spokesman Col.
Philippe DeLongeaux. There were no casualties, unlike attacks in the
previous two days that killed a French paratrooper andaU.S. Marine.
DeLongeaux said a guard post at the heavily fortified French Embassy,
near the ruins of the former American Embassy, was attacked with light
arms.
U.S. Marines on guard around the building dove for cover. There were no
reports of new U.S. casualties.
At the same time, two rocket-propelled grenades were fired at a position
that French troops share with the Lebanese army about a mile from the
French Embassy.
Earlier, the Lebanese army and Syrian-backed Druze Moslem rebels ex-
changed mortar and machine-gun fire around the key crossroads of Khalde,
on the coastal highway just south of the U.S. Marine base at Beirut Airport.

$77 million state deal to
back new high-tech park

(Continued from Page 1)
ALONG WITH acreage for ap-
proximately 30 to 40 industrial tenants,
the plans for the park include a site for
banks, specialty stores, restaurants,
and a hotel.
Jenson noted, however, that these
services are not meant to serve the
needs of the entire Washtenaw County
community. "We want the park to be
self-supportive," Jenson said. "We're
not trying to create a Briarwood at-
mosphere-to serve the whole com-
munity. We are trying to serve the
needs of the employees of our clients.
The hotel and stores are meant for in-

.ternal use."
JENSON WOULD not predict when con-
struction on the project might begin.
Two other major research parks in
Michigan-Hannah Research' Park in
Okemos and the 2,000-a'cre Oakland
County Research Park-will not
provide direct competition with the Ann
Arbor park, Jenson said.
"We are looking for tenants that want
to move into this particular area,
because of the research ability
available at the University of Michigan
and because of the community itself,"
he said.
