O f spending bill
WASHINGTON (AP)- The House
sustained President Reagan's second
veto of an emergency spending bill
yesterday, continuing a deadlock that
could lead to the unpaid furlough of
thousands of federal workers. Although
the vote was 242-169 to override, it was
32 short of the two-thirds tally needed.
The action means Congress must con-
tinue its struggle to come up with an
emergency spending bill acceptable to
the president, who rejected the two
stopgap measures sent to him as too
"This is good news," deputy White
House press secretary Larry Speakes
said of the vote. "It indicates many
members of Congress want to hold
down spending, take a responsible ap-
proach to budgeting. We hope we'll see
more of this."
THE DEMOCRATIC-controlled House
sustained the president's first veto June
24 on a 253-151 vote.
By contrast, both the House and
Senate voted Tuesday to override the
president's veto of a copyright bill the
administration claimed would continue
protectionist trade barriers in the prin-
Speaker Thomas O'Neill (D-Mass.)
said before the vote that if the override
attempt on the spending bill failed, then
the House ultimately would insist on
certain domestic spending provisions of
an earlier measure it had passed and
seek negotiations with the Senate,
which has passed its own alternative
Democrats assailed that Senate
measure for the $634 million in
domestic spending it had cut from the
earlier House bill.
REPUBLICANS, meanwhile, defended
the president's veto, saying the
emergency bill that Congress sent him
did not exercise the spending restraint
needed for economic recovery.
The emergency measure is necessary
to keep money flowing to more than a
dozen federal agencies and major
domestic programs that technically
will go broke before the end of the fiscal
year, Sept. 3.
Before recessing for the Fourth of
July, the Republican-controlled Senate
passed and sent to the House a $5.3-
billion bill that would carry the affected
agencies through the fiscal year.
Rather than accept that measure,
House leaders will try to work out a
compromise with Senate negotiators
that will be acceptable to both cham-
bers and the president.
Administration officials have said
that ifa bill is not passed and signed by
the president soon, an estimated 9,000
to 13,000 or more federal workers would
have to be furloughed.
The pleasant streak continues today as temperatures remain in the 80s
and skies stay clear and sunny. O
C ITY OFFICIALS IN Newark, N.J.,are threatening to boycott Christian
Dior products because of an advertising campaign by the designer they
feel insults the city. A major media campaign by Dior that starts this fall
asks the question, "What would New York be without Dior?" The answer is:
"Newark." The city council has unanimously agreed to boycott the designer
label if the French fashion firm does not withdraw the campaign. Arthur
Cohen, from Dior's advertising agency denied that the ad was meant to of-
fend the city. "There's no attempt to sink Newark," said Cohen. "We could
substitute Burbank or any other city." All in all, however, Newark's gover-
nment would rather the ad be in Philadelphia.
Chicken on a stand
A HOUSTON judge, saying he couldn't probe the mind of a chicken,
has acquitted a man charged with cruelty for using the bird as bait to
exercise a bulldog. County Judge Billy Ragan said he had to acquit Ted Ran-
dolph Stokes because the bird was unhurt and it was impossible to determine
whether the chicken was suffering from mental cruelty. Stokes was charged
after allegedly placing the chicken in a suspended harness that moved the
bird a few feet in front of a dog running on a circular track. Ragan said there
was no way for him to probe "the I.Q. of a chicken" and that the bird may
have "enjoyed the ride like kids enjoy a merry-go-round." He added, "There
was absolutely no testimony about the chicken flapping wings, cackling, or
fighting in any way." Stokes' lawyer said his client used the chicken to exer-
cise his dog, which had a kidney infection. No countersuit by the defeated
fowl currently is planned.ad

Revised 'new federalism'
plan ready, Reagan says
From AP and UPI
BALTIMORE- President Reagan,
raking federal efforts to "homogenize
America," said yesterday his "new
federalism" program to break up the
Washington bureaucracy will be sent to
Capitol Hill by the end of this month.
The sweeping program, which
Reagan said will "reorder the way
American people govern themselves,"
would make the states responsible for
nearly three dozen major federal
programs. First presented in Reagan's
State of the Union address in January,
it bogged down and has undergone a
THE PRESIDENT'S announcement
that a scaled-back package is ready to
go "to the Congeess by the end of the
month" came in a speech given in
Baltimore to the National Association
The change in the transfer plan-
totaling some $40 billion in spending
each year at present levels-is drop-
ping a call for states to take over the
food stamp program, which costs more
than $11 billion annually.
Attacking the "swollen"
bureaucracy, Reagan called the trend
toward power accumulating in
Washington a "serious" mistake and
declared, "We are turning America
away from yesterday's policies of Big
"IN THE recent past, as the federal
government has pushed each city,
county, and state to be more like every
other, we have began to lose one of our
greatest strengths: our diversity as a
people," Reagan said. "If we are to
renew our country, we must stop trying
to homogenize America."
Also during the visit, Reagan drew
attention to his plan to create "enter-
prise zones" in which private business
would be encouraged through tax ad-
vantages to create jobs in depressed,
To dramatize that plan, he paid a 10-
minute visit to the Commercial Credit
Bindery, in the mostly black Park
Heights neighborhood of Baltimore,
and had lunch with business loaders
and local officials in the World Trade
Center building overlooking Baltimore
harbor. Much of the inner harbor area
of boutiques, shops and renovated
houses was developed with the help of
"The business of business is
America," Reagan said, rewording
President Calvin Coolidge's assertion
in 1925 that "the business of America is
