U.S., Soviets announce talks
on nuclear safeguards
MOSCOW-The United States and the Soviet Union, expressing concern
about the possible expansion of the world's nuclear club, announced yester:
day they will hold regular semiannual talks on nuclear non-proliferation.
The agreement came during the fourth round of consultations on ways to}
control the spread of nuclear technology that could have military ap-
A senior U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told American
reporters it was agreed that the United States and Soviet Union meet every.
six months to discuss international nuclear safeguards. He said the agreem-
ent is part of the effort by the United States and Soviet Union to use their in-.
fluence to promote safeguards among countries that may develop nuclear
"It represents a recognition on the part of both sides that there is benefit
and merit to these consultations," the official said.
Secretary of State George Shultz and Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei
Gromyko announced in 1982 that the two countries would hold bilateral con-
sultations on nuclear nonproliferation. The last talks were held in February
in Vienna, Austria.
Trade deficit heads for record
WASHINGTON-The U.S. deficit in merchandise trade narrowed to $9.2
billion in October but still is expected to reach a record of about $130 billion,- ,
for the year, the government said yesterday.
Commerce Secretary Malcolm Baldrige said the nation's trade problems
"underscore the need to cut the budget deficit to reduce interest rates fur-,
ther to lower the dollar."
The cumulative trade deficit for the first 10 months of the year was $105.5
billion. The trade deficit was $69.4 billion for 1983 as a whole, then a record.
"The total 1984 shortfall will be about $130 billion," Baldrige said. "Since
midyear, deficits have averaged nearly $140 billion at an annual rate, but the
worsening trend should slow next year."
For October, the monthly trade gap was down by $3.5 billion from Septem-.
ber's monthly figure of $12.6 billion. The October deficit was the smallest
since June's $8.9 billion.
Corporate taxes fall steadily
WASHINGTON-Corporate America's share of the U.S. tax burden has
fallen steadily while the portion paid by John Citizen has risen, a'
congressional study showed yesterday.
The study for Democratic Reps. Don Pease of Ohio and Byron Dorgan of-
North Dakota, said social insurance taxes have tripled in just over two' °4
It showed that from fiscal 1950 to fiscal 1983 the percentage of corporate
taxes contributed to total federal receipts dropped from 26.5 percent to 6.2
Dorgan said the tax system has become "a feed lot for the rich and large:
"While many American working families, who struggle with moderate in-
comes, pay a significant amount of income taxes, in this study we discovered
that there are some industries and many individual corporations making"
hundreds of millions of dollars in profits and paying little or no income'
taxes," Dorgan said.

Asbestos worries w orkers
AYAGUALO, El Salvador-Leftist guerrillas and government officials},
met yesterday in a hillside Catholic retreat for a second round of peace talks
that observers said could be the last if they fail to reach any significant
Outside, some 60 members of a committee of women whose children have-
"disappeared" in political violence chanted, "We want peace, we want
peace," and demanded a government accounting of their missing kin.
The Catholic church, which is mediating the dialogue, said the eight-hour
discussion would focus on the rebels' reply to a peace proposal by President'
Jose Naopoleon Duarte at the first round of talks Oct. 15 in the mountain-2
town of La Palna.
Bishop Gregorio Kosa Chayez, one of the mediators, told reporters before "

of dialogue to end the country's 5 year old civil war.
Recessions cost milions of Jobs
WASHINGTON-Reflecting the human toll of two recessions over the last
five years, roughly 5.1 million experienced workers lost their jobs because of
plant shutdowns and staff cuts, the government said yesterday.
Of that number, the report said, about 60 percent-or 3.1 million-had'
found new jobs by last January. But the study also said that about 900,000'
people-nearly 45 percent of those who managed to find work-told Bureau
of Labor surveyors they were earning less than they had received in their
previous jobs. Sixty percent of these workers accepted pay cuts of 20 percent
The bureau said the study focused on the period between January 1979 and
January 1984 because "the economy went through two back-to-back
recessions and the levels of employment in some industries, particularly the
goods-producing manufacturing sector, were reduced considerably."
A total of 11.5 million workers age 20 and older lost jobs during the period,
although 6.4 million of them had been at their jobs only a relatively short
time. The analysis focused on the 5.1 million job-losers who had been at work
three years or more.
