Congress to address budget cuts and taxes
WASHINGTON (AP) - Congress
returns today for an election-year bat-
tle with President Reagan over
budget cuts, taxes and spending
Even before the president delivers his
State of the Union address Tuesday
night, congressional Democrats were
maneuvering to focus attention on
massive, politically unpopular
domestic spending cuts in the fiscal
1987 budget Reagan will propose Feb.
SOME LEGISLATORS say it may
take $80 billion in cuts to reduce the
federal budget deficit to $144 billion
next year, the target set by the new
Reagan's refusal to accept any
revenue-raising tax increases or any
slowdown in his military buildup, they
say, almost certainly will result in a
bitter and prolonged deadlock with
Congress unless the president is
willing to compromise.
Senate, Finance Committee Chair-
man Robert Packwood, (R-Ore.), said
on NBC's "Meet the Press" that
Congress would produce a tax
revision bill by August at the latest.
He said he told Reagan this weekend
he could "get 89 percent of what the
president wants without raising
SEN. ERNEST Hollings, (D-S.C.),
said on the same program, however,
that he believed "a tax increase will
be necessary if we are to comply with
'A tax increase will be necessary if we
are to comply with Gramm-Rudman-
-Sen. Ernest Hollings
White House Chief of Staff Donald
Regan said on ABC's "This Week
With David Brinkley" that the
president wanted to fight the deficit
and to stress "privatization" of
government assets, such as Amtrak
- selling them to the private sector.
"If there is a tax increase that
comes forward, albeit with a few
deficit cuts, I think that he will look at
it, but I don't think that he will buy it,''
Regan said. He expressed doubt that
"the trigger's going to be pulled" to
set in motion the automatic Gramm-
LAWMAKERS "have to come to
grips with the fact that it's a trillion-
dollar budget and, by George, we just
can't be spending that kind of
money," Regan said.
Sen. Pete Domenici, (R-N.M.),
Senate Budget Committee chairman,
said on the same program that com-
promise was needed. He reiterated
that the country "could easily stand an
import fee on foreign oil." But he
termed Gramm-Rudman "an ex-
cellent tool" to force Congress to cut
House Majority Leader Jim Wright,
(D-Texas), predicted that the deep
cuts required by the measure would
force Reagan to strike a deal with
Congress. He said that if the tax
revision bill became the focus of such
a bargain "it would not only be all
right, it would be highly desirable."
LAWMAKERS ALSO are less than
enthusiastic about Reagan's
"privatization" plans to sell some
government assets, such as the Ten-
nessee Valley Authority, to private in-
terests. "It's an admission that you're
in pretty bad shape when you have to
sell the garage to pay the mortgage,"
says House Speaker Thomas P.
White House officials say Reagan
plans to make a comparatively brief,
nationally broadcast address before a
joint session of the House and Senate
starting at 9 p.m. EST Tuesday. The
20-minute speech will deal in general
terms with Reagan's themes and
goals for the remaining three years of
his presidency, they said.
The president will outline his
specific legislative proposals in a
special, written message to Congress
which he plans to sign in an Oval Of-
fice ceremony on Wednesday.
In advance of Reagan's speech, the
Senate will meet Monday to take up
legislation providing for the sale of
Conrail, the government-owned rail
freight system, to Norfolk Southern,
an issue that may dominate its atten-
tion all week.

Survey reports increase in
arrests for domestic violence
WASHINGTON - The number of police departments encouraging of-
ficers to make arrests in cases of minor domestic violence has tripled in a
year, a private research organization concluded.
The survey of more than 140 cities by the Washington-based Crime Con-
trol Institute found that 44 cities of more than 100,000 people surveyed in
1985 had policies encouraging arrests for minor domestic assaults, up
from 14 of those cities in 1984.
The survey also showed that the percentage of police departments
reporting more arrests for domestic violence over the preceding year in-
creased, from 24 percent of those surveyed in 1984 to 35 percent last year.
The increase follows a finding in a widely publicized experimental
program in Minneapolis that arrest was an effective deterrent to
repeated domestic assault.
Institute President Lawrence Sherman said that many factors may be
influencing the shift to arrest policies, such as media attention to family
violence, lawsuits against police departments for failing to make arrests
and changes in state laws, some of them making arrest mandatory.
Rebel replaces Uganda council
NAIROBI, Kenya - The commander of the Ugandan rebel army said
yesterday that he had replaced the 6-month-old ruling military council
with one of his own and promised to form a broad-based government and
punish criminals from previous regimes.
Yoweri Museveni outlined his plans during a speech on the gover-
nment-owned radio yesterday afternoon, a day after his National
Resistance Army captured the capital, Kampala, and sent thousands of
government soldiers fleeing.
Deserting army troops were robbing and beating civilians and looting
as they retreated, said a group of evacuees who reached Nairobi late
yesterday afternoon from Northern Uganda.
The Radio Uganda broadcast was monitored in Nairobi. It was the first
time since midday Friday that the radio had been on the air and the first
formal announcement to Ugandans that Kampala had fallen to the NRA.
Earlier yesterday, Museveni met with U.S. Ambassador Robert
Houdek, British High Commissioner Colin MacLean and a representative
of the European Common Market, the British High Commission (em-
bassy) in Nairobi said. The four discussed the evacuation of expatriates
and restoration of electric, water and telephone services in the city, said
Voyager examines Uranus arcs
PASADENA, Calif. - Voyager 2 has found 10 arc-shaped pieces of
rings around Uranus in addition to the 10 full rings encircling the planet, a
scientist said yesterday as geologists studied the planet's cratered moons
and their mountains, valleys and strange squarish features.
"To date, we've got approximately 10 of these arcs," based on only par-
tial examination of information collected by the space probe, said Jet
Propulsion Laboratory scientist Arthur Lane.
He said the arcs were about 30 to 36 miles long, all outside the nine rings
discovered from Earth in 1977 and a 10th ring whose discovery by
Voyager was announced Saturay.
Burton Edelson, associate administrator for, space science for the
National Aeronautics and Space Administration, said earlier that
Voyager "found evidence of 10 additional rings . . . with indications of
many more to come."
But Lane said scientists did not yet know if the arcs extended around
the planet as complete rings.
Portugal to hold runoff election
LISBON, Portugal - A conservative candidate ran well ahead of three
leftist rivals yesterday in voting for Portugal's first civilian president in
60 years, but fell short of enough votes for a first-round victory.
With all but 50 of the 4,138 districts reporting, Diogo Freitas do Amaral
had about 46.6 percent of the vote; former prime minister and Socialist
Party leader Mario Soares 25 percent; Francisco Salgado Zenha 20.7
percent, and Maria de Lourdes Pintasilgo was a distant fourth wih 7.6
To become president without a runoff election, a candidate had to poll
more than half the votes cast by Portugal's 7.6 million eligible voters.
Freitas do Amaral will now battle Soares in a second round on Feb. 16.
The presidential eleciton was the third since Portugal returned to
representative government following the 1974 overthrow of a rightist dic-
tatorship that had ruled for half a century and the first in 60 years to elect
a civilian head of state.
After years of economic stagnation and decline following the jubilant
days of the leftist-inspired April 1974 revolution, the Portuguese right is
calling for a new beginning.
Strikers urge Hormel boycott
AUSTIN, Minn. - Meatpackers on strike against Hormel are calling for .
a nationwide boycott of the company's products as they review a fact-
finder's interpretation of a proposal to end the five-month walkout.
National Guardsmen remained on duty yesterday outside Geo. Hormel
& Co.'s flagship plant, with the midday temperature about 5 degrees
Striking Local P-9 of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union
had put demonstrations outside the plant, said local President Jim Guyet-
Guyette and other union leaders spent Thursday and Friday with Hor-
mel'officials and Arnold Zack, a Harvard University labor and law
professor appointed by Gov. Rudy Perpich to clear up misunderstandings
on a contract proposed by a federal mediator.
Thecompany accepted the proposal in late December, but the 1,500-
member local has rejected it twice, citing ambiguous language.
