A growing tide of tax dollars is
flowing into federal coffers, but the
government still has a deficit be-
cause of uncontrolled spending by
Congress, a member of a national
deficit-fighting panel said Tuesday.
"I have thought from the very
first day I was appointed that we
need to do something about the en-
tire budget process. I don't think it
works very well. It .needs to be
fixed," said Dean Kleckner, one of
14 members on the National Eco-
nomic Commission.
Kleckner, president of the
American Farm Bureau Federation,
pointed out that federal tax revenues
have gone up by about $60 billion a
year over the past five years.
"The problem isn't finding
enough money. The funds are flow-
ing into the federal treasury.

Allen is planning to leave the Uni -
versity within a year.
Additionally, as of last year, LSA
had only one tenured Black woman
faculty member. 1987-88 figures in-
dicate total LSA Black professors
comprise 3.1 percent of the Col-
lege's total.
"The University has spent mil-
lions of dollars to publicize its os-
tensible commitment to becoming a
more diverse institution," United
Coalition Against Racism member
Barbara Ransby said.
"This case clearly calls this
commitment into question. It's also
outrageous that last year LSA had
only one tenured Black female fac-
ulty member, and for them to pass
up the opportunity to hire an obvi-
ously qualified Black female scholar
in inexcusable."

Mich. senators propose bills
WASHINGTON - Michigan's senators marked the upper chamber's
first day of business yesterday with a flurry of bill introductions designed
to set their legislative agendas for the session.
Sen. Donald Riegle, a Democrat, introduced a bill that would allow
people to tap their individual retirement accounts, or IRAs in order to buy
a house.
"I believe this bill provides a straightforward efficient way to enable
many more Americans to share in the dream of home ownership," Riegle
Sen. Carl Levin, a Democrat, reintroduced a bill to protect federal
employees who "blow the whistle" on waste management in government.
The legislation passed both the House and the Senate last year without
a dissenting vote but was vetoed by former President Reagan.
Levin also introduced legislation that would tighten restrictions on
former officials lobbying the agencies at which they once worked.

WASHINGTON - President Bush voiced reservations yesterday about
American participation in a human rights conference in Moscow in 1991,
saying "we need to look for performance" by the Soviet Union.
In his first interview as president, Bush also hinted he will stop in
China after visiting Japan next month. "Stay tuned," Bush said, "We may
have something on that" soon.
Pointing to raising prices on Wall Street, Bush said, "There's no sig-
nals out there in the markets that this economy is in real trouble."
Bush refused to say how long his pledge against raising taxes would
apply. I'm not thinking beyond anything other than to say I will not raise
taxes and I've got to stay with that approach... I really feel strong on that
particular point, and I haven't thought beyond one year ... or anything of
that nature."
Anti-drug ditch dug on
Mexican-American boarder
WASHINGTON - A four-mile-long ditch that a Justice Department
official compared to a "buried Berlin Wall" is planned for a stretch of the
U.S.-Mexican border to stem drug smuggling into Southern California.
But the plan is being criticized as "too little too late" by a group that
advocates building fences along the boarder and blasted as repressive by
immigrant rights organizations.
Associate Attorney General Francis Keating said he proposed the idea
last fall as a way to discourage drug smugglers from driving loads of co-
caine, marijuana, and heroin across the boarder near San Diego.
The plan being undertaken by the Immigration and Naturalization
Service was approved last month by Attorney General Dick Thornburgh,
Keating said.
Diplomat finds foul play
SANTIAGO, Chile - A former diplomat said yesterday he was told
that the chief of the military government's secret police ordered the
assassination in Washington of dissident Chilean politician Orlando
Jose Barros said in sworn testimony the mastermind was identified to
him as General Manuel Contreras Sepulveda. The United States has tried
for years to extradite the former secret police chief and his assistant, Col.
Pedro Espinoza, both now retired.
Contreras denied the accusation last night. "Neither I nor any official
of the intelligence agency were involved" in the killing, he said on
Santiago's Channel 13.
Letelier and American aide Ronnie Moffitt were killed Sept. 21, 1976,
when a remote-controlled bomb blew up in their car. He had been a
Cabinet minister and ambassador to the United States for the government
overthrown by Gen. Agusto Pinochet in 1973, and was among Pinochets
most influential critics abroad.
Rooster ruffles radio
AUGUSTA, Ga. - Rojo the rooster has a job now and is out of legal
trouble, which could have ended up with the bird in a stewpot.
The 6-pound rooster ran a foul of the law for attacking a 3-year--old
boy on Jan. 3, and his former owner, Bill Driggers, was scheduled for
trial Jan. 26. Driggers faced a possible $300 fine and the rooster faced a
possible death sentence.
But now that Rojo has a job as a radio station mascot, the boy's
parents have dropped the legal action.
Radio station WRXR took the rooster off Driggers' hands. Operations
manager Tony Powers said Rojo would make public appearances for the
station, staying on Powers' father's farm in Warrenvill, S.C., the rest of
the time.
All of this has left Driggers without a pet. "I guess that's all she
wrote, unless I get another rooster," he said. "Maybe I'll get me a duck."
