A there is no known opposition in the committee to him Quot said an aide Jaq a democratic member speaking in condition he not be identified a unanimous or nearly unanimous recommendation from the foreign relations committee would virtually assure stones confirmation by the full Senate.

Gop defies president on budget Washington a the Republican led Senate in bold Defiance of president Reagan has ended three weeks of tumultuous budget debate by narrowly approving a 1984 spending and Revenue plan which would permit a $9 9 billion tax increase next year and $75 billion Over the next three years. In a dramatic 50 to 49 Roll Call vote minutes before Midnight thursday the Senate gave a stunning Victory to a Small band of tenacious Republican moderates and minority democrats who said attacking swelling Federal deficits with higher taxes is the key to economic recovery. Their opponents led by majority Leader Howard ii Baker jr., argued for higher defense spending and against any budget which threatened All or part of this year s to percent income tax Cut. The debate spiced with acrid partisan Battles will Likely set the Agenda for the 1984 congressional and presidential elections. At the very least the Senate budget Resolution sets up Tough negotiations with members of the democratically controlled House which previously approved a budget plan with far higher taxes and a far slower defense buildup Over the next five years the final budget blueprint left the Senate after a tense Day of wild Seesaw legislative Battles in which the outcome was in doubt until the very end the winning plan was drafted by freshman cop sen Slade Gorton of Washington and was approved Only after the Senate had taken nine previous Roll Call votes on budget alternatives of wide extremes. They included an unsuccessful proposal by conservative sen Jesse Helms. a to percent across the Board Cut in spending except for defense and social Security and an Effort by republicans to Force Senate democrats to vote on the High tax Low military spending budget approved by the House Baker finally let the budget he and Reagan strongly opposed go through the Senate because to Block it further would have shattered the congressional budget process. The majority Leader said he a determined to have the Senate pass a budget even if it was one he did no to support and personally called for a second vote on Gorton a plan twice before including once earlier thursday night the Senate rejected the same proposal it ended up approving and then Only after there was serious danger of no 1984 budget blueprint passing at All. One of the plans main cop supporters Robert t. Stafford of Vermont said. A this was the last train out of the station and there was nothing else to follow we either had the Compromise or Baker had fought hard to defeat the Gorton plan and its passage is the worst defeat he has suffered since being elected As Leader after republicans took control of the Senate in the 1980 elections. Baker was beaten by an uneasy coalition of about 20 moderate republicans and most of Tje 46 Senate democrats. The outcome demonstrates the growing strength of the gop moderates in the Senate Many of whom face reelection in 1984. The Gorton proposal would permit a 6 percent military buildup Over inflation next year compared with Reagan s original to percent proposal. When defeat of the to percent figure was imminent Reagan tacitly accepted a 7.5 percent military increase but said he would go no lower. Allow $12.5 billion More in spending on Domestic social programs than Reagan had urged including More Money for education and Federal health care and housing programs. Call for tax increases of $9.9 billion in fiscal year 1984, $13.7 billion in 1985 and $51 billion in 1986 a project deficits of $178 billion in 1984, dropping to $130 billion by 1988. A rival plan supported by Baker and sen Pete v. Domenici r n m., chairman of the Senate budget committee would have permitted tax increases of $8 3 billion Over the next two Vears a 7.1 percent defense increase and about the same level of non military Domestic spending. Under that plan deficits were projected at $192.4 billion in 1984 and $185 billion in 1985, then would shoot up to $220 billion in 1988 it was Defeated twice thursday by votes of 56 to 43 and 57 to 43. Although Reagan has sharply criticized his budget opponents Over the last week he does not actually sign into Law or veto the spending plan which Congress eventually approves. But the budget plan sets ceilings on taxes and spending for other congressional committees and legislation they produce goes to the White House for Reagan to either sign into Law or veto South african blast kills 13, wounds 40 Pretoria South Africa a a bomb exploded near a military Headquarters building in this capital City Friday killing at least 13 people and wounding about 40, Law and order minister Louis be Grange reported be Grange at the scene blamed the attack on the african National Congress the main Black nationalist movement seeking to overthrow White minority Rule.

He said the chemical is safer that the other compound earlier identified. That was do 80, which contains arsenic.

Wildlife federation protests land disposal by John Kuglin associated press Helena apr the thousands of acres of land in southwestern Montana that the Bureau of land management has proposed for disposal include parcels that Are extremely important wildlife habitat the National wildlife federation says. Thousands of head of Elk and Deer and hundreds of Bighorn sheep Are liable to have their habitat wiped out if the Agency gets rid of All the parcels it has Quot nominated for Sale or Exchange under the Interior departments Quot asset management program Quot says Nawf regional executive Charles Griffith of Bozeman. And. Griffith in a strongly worded letter of protest to state blk director Michael j. Penfold of Billings said the Nawf opposes the Transfer of any of the Federal Agency s lands to the Montana department of state lands. Quot that state lands department has a Long and sorry record of managing the Public lands in its care particularly protecting important natural resource values Only if that departments land management record improves and Public Access to its lands can be assured can Nawf support any such exchanges Quot Griffith wrote. Griffith in a later interview said the problem with the state department of i ads Quot is that they try to exact the maximum number of dollars from the land without consideration other Griffith also said that Hunters and fishermen Are getting tired of being denied Access to state school land which the state allows Farmers and ranchers to Post. At Issue is the by my a nomination of about 16,000 acres for possible disposal in the Dillon resource area this area the Pilot program for land disposals that Penfold has said could total up to 500,000 acres in the state includes parcels in Madison Beaverhead Deer Lodge and Silver Bow counties. Material distributed by the blk says that lands which will not be sold include National Parks wildlife refuges Indian Trust lands wildernesses wilderness study areas and wild and Scenic Rivers. No mention is made of not Selling areas with valuable wildlife habitat. Blk District manager Jack a. Mcintosh of Butte during an interview said he Quot questions if wildlife values will be lost if land passes into private Mcintosh said the nomination process had been extended from May 6, through this week he said the Public will get another Opportunity to comment on the disposal program after the blk publishes a list of the nominations about july i. Griffith a letter to Penfold said that the Nawf does Quot not believe that any alleged or even real difficulty of administration should be a controlling Factor in such an Exchange he said some government tracts May be difficult to manage but their values outweigh administrative problems. Examples Griffith said include lands which provide a Buffer zone Between other Public lands and sub divisions the blk has said that some tracts that will be disposed of include those needed for Quot expansion of communities and economic development a but Griffith citing increasing threats to the natural environment from subdivisions in the Madison and Cen Tennial valleys of southwestern Montana told Penfold Quot blk should never attempt to justify providing opportunities for subdivisions As a justification or rationale for Public lands disposal a Griffith wrote that both valleys have Large Elk and Deer herds. Quot conversion of blk acreages to private ownership would compound wildlife management problems already existing and without doubt would result in a demand for massive reductions in big game numbers to avoid conflict with agricultural interests a Griffith wrote the Nawf a a tract by tract analysis of the acreage nominations in the Dillon area included some tracts recommended for retention or Trade the analysis included a tract used by up to 130 Bighorn sheep at times tracts heavily used by Antelope needed to relieve pressure from problems already reported by an adjacent rancher a a tract adjacent to Beaverhead Rock a state historical site a tracts providing cover in Winter for about 200elk. Which if exchanged or sold would be subdivided a four adjacent tracts that provide Winter Range for about 500 Elk and a Large Deer Herd a a tract adjoining the states Blacktail Winter game Range where some 1,700 Elk Winter Griffith wrote that Quot the key to the entire Exchange or Transfer of ownership process is the need to Exchange lands with Low Public values for other lands with higher Public it
