have fallen under the General Land Office asset management um brella and serves as a prime example of the intent of the new The federal courts have ordered the TDC to build new prison units to meet federally mandated prison standards during these fiscally tough the TDC cannot afford to finance these new TDC owns a great deal of land near Houston acres mostly being used as farm This large block of land lies directly in the path of development to the southwest of Houston near Sugar Land and could be better used for residential and industrial This will be the first test of the General Land

who met with him in In the magazine Gor bachev also complained that it ap pears that even the slightest head way depends almost exclusively upon concessions by the Soviet The White House response was a suggestion that the American presi dent ought to have an equal op portunity to express his views in the Soviet That opportunity came two months later and Reagan startled some observers by telling Soviet jour nalists that he wouldnt deploy SDI until we do away with our nuclear That comment stirred fevered speculation that Reagan was sug gesting that Star Wars never would be that he was willing to give the Soviets a veto over his pro Would you forgive me if I hell Reagan said when asked a week later if he intended to give the Soviets that kind of If there were no agreement on of fensive Reagan the United States would feel free to go ahead and deploy But the suspicion lingered that the presidents statement to the Soviet journalists was a signal of some sort beyond just an attempt to take a pro paganda initiative in the presummit public relations Given Gorbachevs signal that he was willing to accept some SDI research and Reagans hint there might be ways to put off there seemed reason to hope that a compromise was possible on what observers on both sides kept describ ing as the toughest issue facing the two Then Secretary of State George Shultz met Gorbachev in Moscow and
