Weinberger warns Congress
not to freeze mlitary spending
WASHINGTON-Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger told Congress
yesterday that an after-inflation freeze on military spending would
"decimate" major weapons programs, force the elimination of two Trident
submarines and slow by years production of the B-1 and Stealth bombers.
A freeze "would be the most dangerous thing we could do, not just foolish,"
Weinberger told the Senate Budget Committee.
Weinberger, for the first time spelling out in public his assessment of the
specific impact that an inflation-adjusted freeze would have, said it would
"cripple the ability of the department to move ahead."
Others said a full spending freeze is essential.
But Sen. Pete Domenici (R-N.M.), the committee chairman, insisted
defense must be part of efforts to reduce the federal budget deficit.
"You gave me a long shopping list of important programs that would have
to be terminated," Domenici told Weinberger. "Let me be honest and tell
you that I have a great deal of difficulty in believing that would be the
House to vote on seat belt law
LANSING, Mich.-Mandatory seat belt legislation was placed in position
for final action by the House yesterday, and a key backer exuded confidence,
about its adoption.
Following the voice vote, Rep. David Hollister said he feels "more comfor-
table now" about the bill than at any time in recent years. He said the bills'
supporters now number "closer to 65 than 56"-the minimum number
required for passage.
A final vote is scheduled for next Tuesday.
The Senate already has passed the bill in nearly identical form.
The measure requires drivers and front seat passengers to buckle up or
face a civil fine of $10. That fine will rise to $25 beginning Jan. 1, 1986.
In addition, there is a $5 assessment for law enforcement training.
Americans live longer today
WASHINGTON-The nation's death rate has dropped to a record low and
Americans can expect to live longer than ever before, new government
statistics show.
Life expectancy at birth "continued its upward trend and reached a new
high of 74.5 years" in 1982, the National Center for Health Statistics reported.
Indeed, despite the growth in the population over time there were actually
fewer deaths in the United States in 1982 than the year before. The report
said the total of deaths in 1982 was 1,974,797, down 3,184 from 1981.
The life expectancy data offered some good news for men, who gained
slightly more than women between 1981 and 1982, although women are still
expected to outlive men. In 1982, females could expect to live an average of
78.2 years, compared to 70.9 for men.
That represents an increase of six months in male life expectancy over the
1981 figure, while the figure for women is about four months more.
"The difference in life expectancy between the sexes, which was widening
for many years, now appears to be decreasing," said the report.
Four Polish policemen found
guity of priest's kidnap-murder
TORUN, Poland-Four secret policemen were found guilty of the kidnap-
murder of a pro-Solidarity priest and given jail terms of 14 to 25 years
yesterday at the end of a trial that provided an unprecedented look at official
misconduct in the Soviet bloc.
Judge Artur Kujawa, who presided at the 43-day trial, rejected
prosecutors' requests for the death penalty for Capt. Griegorz Piotrowski,
33, the acknowledged leader of the Oct. 19 killing of the Rev. Jerzy
Kujawa sentenced Piotrowski to 25 years in jail. His accomplices, Lts.
Keszek Pekala, 32, and Waldemar Chaielewski, 29, were given 15 and 14-year
terms respectively. Prosecutors had sought 25-year terms for the pair.
The fourth defendant, Col. Adam Pietruszka, 47, was convicted of incitirg
the slaying. He got a 25-year sentence.
Kujawa also ordered Piotrowski and Pietruszka stripped of their civil
rights for 10 years after completing their sentences.
GOP may freeze aid to elderly
WASHINGTON - Senate Republican leader Robert Dole said yesterday
GOP senators are ready to freeze Social Security cost-of-living increases to
help cut the deficit despite promises by President Reagan that aid to the
elderly will be untouched.
In the House, Speaker Thomas O'Neill said federal subsidies to states
would be a good place to aim the budget cut.
Reagan's fiscal 1986 budget, which is $130 billion in the hole, scraps
domestic programs like the Small Business Administration, Urban
Development Action Grants and federal revenue sharing, and severely cuts
farm subsidies. But it does. not touch Social Security cost-of-living, going
along with a campaign promise, and gives a large ipcrease to the military.
Senate Republicans are working on their own budget that is likely to slice
money from the Pentagon anyway.
Both the president and the Senate GOP leaders would like to cut $50 billion
from anticipated deficits but with different formulas.
