Congress reaches
agreement on budget
WASHINGTON - House and
Senate budget leaders yesterday
reached preliminary agreement on
a spending plan that would cut
$55.5 billion off next year's deficit
while allowing raises for Social
Security and the military.
The entire House-Senate budget
conference was expected to endor-
se the proposal, though several
minor items remained to be ironed
out. The leaders then hoped to take
the budget to the full House and
Senate, and attempt to get it
passed before the end of the week
and the beginning of the August
congressional recess.
The leaders said the budget
would slice $277.4 billion from the
anticipated fiscal 1916-Il deficit of
more than$600billion.
Uganda minister
sworn into new office
KAMPALA, Uganda - The
second ranking official in the
government of deposed President
Milton Obote was sworn in before
thousands of well-wishers yester-
day as prime minister to head
Uganda's interim civilian Cabinet.
Western diplomats said there
were still "scattered pockets of
resistance" by troops loyal to
Obote, but they did not appear to
pose a major threat to the 5-day-
old military coup.
There were unconfirmed reports
of resistance in southeastern
AIDS epidemic strikes
Europe, kills 500
ATLANTA - The incurable
disease AIDS has stricken nearly
1,000 people in Europe, killing half
of them, and the epidemic is
spreading at the rate of 14 new
cases each week, health officials
reported yesterday.
"The AIDS epidemic continues
to spread in Europe," the World
Health Organization said in a
report to the national Centers for
Disease Control.

The report said 940 AIDS cases
had been reported by 17 European
countries as of March 31. Of that
number, 178 occurred since the fir-
st of the year, an average increase
of 14 cases a week.
In the United Sates, where the
AIDS problem is much worse,
there have been 12,067 cases of
AIDS and 6,079 deaths as of July 29.
Telescope problems
develop in Challenger
(UPI) - Persistent problems with
a telescope aimer have slowed
solar observations from the shuttle
Challenger, significantly reducing
the return from three sun-
watching instruments, a project
official said yesterday.
Hut mission scientist Eugene
Urban said the quality of infor-
mation that has been obtained so
far from those advanced solar
telescopes is excellent, showing in-
triguing sunspots and great
plumes of incandescent gas
looping above the sun.
He said all but one of the other 10
experiments planned for the
weeklong orbital mission have
been obtaining a wealth of infor-
mation and "the investigators are
really overwhelmed with the data
they are getting."
Alaska Governor's
impeachment unlikely
JUNEAU, Alaska - Alaska im-
peachment probers yesterday hit
the closing stages of the nation's
first such proceeding in nearly 60
years but appeared unlikely to
seek to oust Gov. William Sheffield
from office.
The Democrat apparently came
out the winner in his two days of in-
tense grilling before the
Republican-dominated Senate
Rules Committee.
"My impression is that the
governor convinced most Alaskans
on television that he should be
allowed to finish his first term,"
said committee chairman Tim
Kelly, one of the four Republicans
on the five-member panel.
