Senate panel
slashes proposed
Salvadoran aid

Foreign Relations Committee yester-
day slashed $100 million from proposed
military aid to El Salvador and
threatened to cut off all aid if the em-
battled Central American country fails
to carry out a program to enable im-
poverished peasants to own farms.
The committee acted by unanimous
vote after a State Department official
said the administration would "stand
firm" against any military aid for El
Salvador if the Salvadoran government
is found to have scuttled the U.S.-
backed land reform program.
THE OFFICIAL, Thomas Enders,
assistant secretary for inter-American
affairs, said it was "too early to come to
any conclusions" as to whether the new
government in El Salvador will con-
tinue the land distribution initiative
begun under former President Jose
Napoleon Duarte.
The Senate panel's action cutting the
proposed military aid for El Salvador to
$66 million-the current level-came on
an authorization bill for fiscal 1983,
which begins Oct. 1.
Elsewhere on Capitol Hill, a House
Appropriations subcommittee voted 7-5
to reject the Reagan administration's

request for a supplemental ap-
propriation totaling $301.5 million-in-
cluding $35 million for El Salvador-in
military aid for the current fiscal year.
THE HOUSE appropriations sub-
committee also deferred action on the
$350 million in additional economic aid
needed to implement President
Reagan's Caribbean Basin initiative.
Of the total, $128 million would go to El
This move came a day after Rep.
Clement Zablocki (D-Wis.), chairman
of the House Foreign Affairs Commit-
tee said the panel was postponing con-
sideration of the package because of
concern over reported steps to suspend
El Salvador's land reform program.
A law passed by Congress last year
makes aid to El Salvador conditional on
semi-annual certifications by the
president that the government there is
carrying out land and other reforms.
President Reagan is due to make the
next certification by July 28.
Members of the committee expressed
skepticism that any such certification
would be justified in view of the
Salvadoran Constituent Assembly's
decision last week to suspend a portion
of the land reform plan.

LOCAL POLICE IN Moscow, Idaho recently released a missing persons
report of a most unusual nature. An all-points bulletin alerted
authorities to be on the lookout for a 30-pound, metallic monster with lime-
green skin and red eyes. Who would want to find such a creature? The Idaho
Forge and Fabrication Co. would very much like to get the animal, known as
Daniel the Dragon, back. Daniel, who was used as a highway advertising
display, was stolen Friday night. "A lot of people don't understand the
seriousness of this crime," said police Sgt. Sheldon Russell. "Some people
have the Loch Ness monster, some people have the Abominable Snowman,
but in Moscow we have Daniel the Dragon and Daniel is now missing."
Russell noted that the dragon's disappearance coincided with the University
of Idaho's spring break, but he discounted rumors linking students to the
crime. "It's possible that our dragon may be the victim of a university
prank," he said. "Or else we have a genuine dragon-napper out there ... "

instructed to take pictures of the books
by the prosecutor's office, and that they
were taken in anticipation of a defense
of insanity.
The books give a look into the mind of
the defendant," Atkinson said.
WATERMAN AGAIN raised-objec-
tions when key witness Detective
William Canada, the officer in charge
of the Kelly investigation, slightly
altered the meaning of his testimony
from the pre-trial examination last
Waterman asked if Kelly gave the
impression that he knew what he was
involved in when Canada interviewed
him after he had been apprehended.
Canada replied yesterday, "Based on
the conversation I had with him and my
experience in the past, I would have to
say that he knew he was in trouble."
Waterman then produced the court
record from the pre-trial hearing and
read Canada's response to the same
question. "I would say that he knew he
was involved in something, but he did
not know what," was the response
Canada gave in July.
UPON FURTHER questioning,
Canada reverted to his previous
Campbell also granted a request by
Waterman to allow further

psychiatric examination of the defen-
dant, despite a state statute prohibiting
such examinations after first day of a
jury trial.
Waterman said he is now requesting
the additional examinations because he
only recently received the results of the
examination conducted on Kelly at the
Center for Forensic Psychiatry in Yp-
silanti, where Kelly was tested for
criminal competence earlier this year.
He also said he has had additional dif-
ficulties getting his client to an
examiner's office and getting an
examiner to come to the Washtenaw
County Jail, where Kelly is being held
without bail.
"I WANT NO part of breaking the
law," Prosecutor Lynwood Noah said,
referring to the statute prohibiting such
an extension.
Campbell defended his decision to
grant Waterman's request, saying, "I
have no question that my brothers and
sisters on the appellate court would ap-
prove of my decision in the name of due
process. The alternatives are un-
The jury also heard expert testimony
which established an identifiable
fingerprint belonging to Leo Kelly on
the murder weapon, a 12-gauge sawed-
off shotgun.
Ballistics and firearms identification
expert David Balash from the Michigan
State Police Crime Laboratory in Nor-
thville testified that the slug found in
McGreaham's body during the autopsy
was fired from the same gun that bore
Kelly's fingerprints.
The trial will resume on Monday, June
