Reagan to fight
in U.S. House
WASHINGTON (UPI) - President
Reagan mounted a last-minute offen-
sive yesterday against a nuclear
freeze resolution, warning the prospec-
ts for real arms control could suffer a
serious setback if the proposal is ap-
proved by Congress.
The House has tentative plans to vote
today on the call for a mutual and
verifiable freeze on nuclear weapons by
the United States and the Soviet Union.
On Capitol Hill, meanwhile, House
Speaker Thomas O'Neill (D-Mass.),
Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.), and
other congressional backers of the
nuclear freeze movement spoke out in
support of the freezeresolution.
"THIS ISSUE is the most important
issue of our time," Kennedy declared,
noting that the United States and Soviet
Union together have nuclear arsenals
the equivalent of 1 million bombs of the
size dropped on Hiroshima during
World War II.
"Enough is enough," he told repor-
ters outside the Capitol. "The time for
a freeze is now, the time for reductions
is in the future. Freeze now, and then
Reagan invited 21 House members to
the White House to urge support for an
alternative proposal embracing his
view that a freeze is not possible until
the two superpowers agree to
significant reductions in nuclear ar-
Rep. Samuel Stratton (D-N.Y.), a co-
sponsor of the alternative language,
said "several" members went to the
White House undecided, but "while I
can't guarantee it, it appears they've
seen the light."
Temperatures will be stifling today, with highs in the lower 90s. Relief is in
sight for the evening when humidity drops. 
My dog's uglier than your dog
THEY SAY EVERY dog has its day and for Chi-Chi, a model mutt with a
Mohawk hairdo, that day came Sunday when he won the annual
Ugly Dog Contest in Petaluma, California. "He's unique, he's hairless-he's
just kind of funny. Kind of like a rat," said Dane Beezley, of Sunnyvale,
California, owner of the winning entry in a contest that attracts some of the
most bizarre canines on display. Chi-Chi took the honor with a walk after
mastering competition that included Humphrey, a drooling bulldog, and
Toby, a chow with moth-eaten fur. Snuffy, a tiny, rheumy chihuahua with a
red neck and jutting ribs,.has won the contest twice before. Owner Kena
Hibbs of Petaluma decided to let her dog sit out this year "to give someone
else a chance to win." Also resting on his laurels was Fawn II, a Chinese
Shar-Pei with bad breath and a suit of clothes ten sizes too large. "You get
something that ugly, it just wins every time and discourages other entran-
ts," said Doretha Tennyson, chairperson of the 13-year-old competition. O

... freeze an important issue
DURING THE meeting, the president
warned that congressional support for
an immediate freeze would undermine
START-the Strategic Arms Reduction
Talks-and negotiations on inter-
mediate-range missiles in Europe.
"He is concerned ... that a straight
freeze would undercut the negotiating
process-in Geneva," said Rep. William
Broomfield (R-Mich.), chief sponsor of
the substitute resolution backed by the

freedom of choice for the mother in all
Allen's economic ideas center on his
concept of a three-way coalition bet-
ween business, labor, and state gover-
nment to decide the state's needs.
"There's been for quite a while an
adversary role of labor, business, and
government," he said. "That's got to
stop, it's got to become a joint effort
between all of them in setting priorities
so that we all can survive."
One of Allen's top priorities is to put a
stop to rising property taxes.
"THE TAX LOAD on the individual's
home is.. ;just ridiculous," said Allen.
"To own a home is almost impossible
Allen believes a property tax cap and
assurances that home financing costs
will not be used to determine the
market value of a home can stop
property tax increases.
Currently the state takes financing
costs into account when determining a
home's market value, although the
state constitution says that it should not
be taken into account, he said.
TO FURTHER aid the housing in-
dustry, Allen would like the state to
work with banks to provide low interest
"You can use leverage of the state to
work with banks and provide limited
funds for low interest bonds for housing
loans that will help move the housing
market," he said.
Improving the state's basic services
is the third emphasis in Allen's cam-
He stresses "transportation, and
public services as they relate to fire,
police, roads, sewers, and storm
drainage. Those are the very basic
services that relate to a healthy
economic climate by which people can
come here and expand their
