WASHINGTON (AP) - President Reagan said
yesterday that there is "no more compelling priority
on my agenda" than production of the MX nuclear
missile and added that scrapping the weapon now
would reduce any incentive for the Soviet Union to
negotiate on arms control.
"We must not cast doubt on U.S. and allied reserve
nor reward the Soviets for their current belligerent
behavior towards arms control," the president said
at a quickly called news conference held as the House
prepared to battle over the administration's defense
With the 10-warhead MX facing a crucial vote this
week, House Speaker Thomas O'Neill is predicting
MX should not
that funds for the weapon will be stripped from a $208
billion defense measure.
BUT REAGAN said, "We cannot afford to delay
any longer. Without Peacekeeper, the MX, the incen-

"The Soviets hope that, once again, our moder-
nization efforts will be curtailed," Reagan said. "To
falter now would only encourage the Soviet Union to
ignore our arms control efforts."
Last year, Reagan swayed a number of House
liberals with the "bargaining chip" argument for the
MX, the nation's first new intercontinential missile in
two decades. But Democratic support has waned in
the wake of the Soviet walkout last year from the ar-
ms talks and repeated statements by high officials of
the administration questioning whether a verifiable
new pact is even possible.
O'Neill, a longtime opponent of the new missile,
thought he had the votes last year, but Reagan
prevailed 217-208 after fashioning a curious alliance
with a trio of Democratic liberals who steered the
weapon past their party leaders. The three were
Reps. Les Aspin of Wisconsin, Norman Dicks of
Washington and Ablert Gore of Tennessee.
