CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (UPI) -
Ignoring the landing uncertainty
crated by Hurricane Josephine
swirling far below them, the space
stikittle crew prepared yesterday for the
first spacewalk by an American
Kathryn Sullivan and David Leestma
planned to spend three and a half hours
spacewalking in Challenger's open
cargo bay starting at 11:33 a.m. today
to secure a loose antenna and prac-
ticing refueling satellites.
Sullivan and Leestma breathed pure
oxygen for three hours yesterday to
eliminate the risk of nitrogen bubbles
forming in their blood and later, with
the help of the crewmates, checked out
their bulky spacesuits in the crowded
I sure hope things are more fun
tomorrow than this today," said
Sullivan, a 31-year-old geologist who
noted before launch that her build 5-

suited for the exertion of a spacewalk.

Report alleges Soviet
@e I4 4
WASHINGTON (UPI) - President
Reagan sent Congress a long-awaited
report yesterday that concludes the
Soviet Union has displayed "selective
disregard" for arms control agreemen-
ts over the past 25 years.
The report found that Soviet prac-
tices related to about half of the arms
control agreements during the period
"show material breaches - violations,
probably violations or circumventions
- of contractual obligations."
THE REPORT, prepared by the
bipartisan General Advisory Commit-
tee on Arms Control and Disarmament,
was requested by conservatives in
Congress who contend the Soviets have
violated existing arms treaties over the
Reagan, in a letter that accompanied
a heavily censored unclassified version'
of the report, did not go so far as to
repeat his past allegations of Soviet
treaty violations and, in fact, even
placed distance between himself and
the report by noting the document had
not been reviewed by the ad-
"For its part," he said, "the ad-
ministration continues to be seriously
concerned about Soviet behavior with
regard to compliance with arms control
obligations and commitments.
"We are actively pursuing several
such issues in confidential discussions
with the Soviet Union and are seeking
explanations, clarifications and correc-
tive actions," Reagan said.

covering the years 1958 to 1983, alleg

In an interview with The' New York
Times on June 11, 1980, Reagan said:
"If I were president and had any
feelings at all that my capabilities had
been reduced before a second term
came, I would walk away. By the same
token, I would step down also."
The president's aides released results
of a battery of physical exams Reagan
Ainderwent last May, handing them out
response to the resurfacing of the
jsue of Reagan's age in the presiden-
'. til campaign. That issue arose in
recent days after what may
;democratic critics and also some
1'epublican supporters saw as a
lackluster performance by the
president in Sunday night's debate with
Water Mondale. President Reagan said
ybsterday, "I wasn't tired" during las-
:t Sunday's televised campaign debate,
'adding tht Mondale looked younger
because he work makeup. Retorted
1Vondale, "That's the same answer
1lichard Nixon gave" after his 1960
"MR. PRESIDENT, the problem
isn't makeup on the face, it's the
rmakeup on those answers that gave you
problems," said Mondale.
Reagan, a former Hollywood actor,
said he never wore makeup even "when
I was in pictures."
In Pittsburgh, Mondale was asked
atbout Reagan's statement about
niakeup and the President's lighthear-
ted remark that he was willing to arm
wrestle Mondale to demonstrate his
"WELL, AS you know, the question is
not arm-wrestling," Mondale told
reporters. "We had a mind-wrestle the
other night on Sunday evening and as
he will find out in our next debate, the
question is not arm-wrestling, but the
need for arms control."
Mondale has not cracked President
Reagan's formidable edge as the
voters' choice, but public opinion polls
released Wednesday show voters'
opinions of the Democratic challenger
have improved dramatically since the
Sunday night debate.
The polls by ABC News, CBS News-
New York Times, and pollster Louis
Harris for Business Week magazine
said the perception that Mondale won
the debate strengthened substantially
Monday and Tuesday, with Mondale
now called the winner by a majority of
likely voters in all three surveys.
The CBS-Times poll showed a slight
gain in Mondale's support, with 36 per-
cent backing him compared to 58 per-
cent for Reagan. That's a 1 percent loss
for Reagan in the last week and a 5 per-
cent gain for Mondale.
The 515 voters surveyed said over-
whelmingly that Mondale won the
debate, 66 percent to 17 percent.
In the ABC survey of more than 1,000
voters conducted after the nationally
televised debate Sunday night, Mondale
was pronounced the clear victor by a 3-1
margin, the network said.
The crowd that greeted Mondale in
Pittsburgh, estimated at more than
15,000, was festive and a painted bed-
sheet said, "Gime 'Em Hell, Fritz."

papers with a dozen advisers. Bush
studied in his office, went jogging and
held a third mock debate with sparring
partner Lynn Martin, a GOP
congresswoman from Illinois.
While Bush is a solid favorite over
Ferraro in the polls, some Republicans
are worried about how he will perform
in a face-to-face meeting with the
Democratic vice presidential nominee.
Robert Beckel, campaign manager
for Mondale, said, "Bush is obviously a
much more experienced debater going
into it but she's shown herself under
pressure to do very well.
"I'M OPTIMISTIC about it," Beckel
added. "Because Mondale virtually
wiped out-Reagan, she's got more of a
burden on her shoulders than she had
before. But I've got a great deal of faith
Republicans are counting on Bush to
deny the Democrats a chance to claim
two straight victories.
"If it's two in a row and if Bush does
not really do well, then I think you can
worry a little bit more about them
(Mondale-Ferraro) getting on a roll
and a roll that really does start to pick
up some momentum for them," said a
GOP congressional strategist who
spoke only on condition of not being
IN THE VIEW of a debate expert,
Ferraro must not be too aggressive or
talk too fast if she hopes to win support
among politically moderate women and
men who harbor suspicions about the
For Bush, the challenge is to con-
fidently reassure older Americans
about issues that Mondale exploited -
such as Social Security and Medicare -
and "walk a tight line" between being
too tough on a woman or, on the other
hand, being to easygoing and appearing
condescending, the expert said.
"He thinks this is an important event
in the campaign, one of many impor-
tant events in the overall campaign,"
spokeswoman Shirley Green said, ad-
ding Bush still believes the outcome
will not make much difference in the
voting for Reagan or for Mondale.
Polls show many voters remain un-
convinced Ferraro, a relative
newcomer to politics with six years
service in Congress, has the experience
to be president if something happened
Bush's campaign plays up his ex-
perience as U.N. ambassador, liaison to
China, CIA director and two terms in
the House as making him well qualified
for the top spot.
