Up in arms
Taiwan supporters upset with Reagan
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Reagan, criticized by some lawmakers for his agreement with the Chinese to limit arms sales to Taiwan, says he is not backing away from the United States’ moral obligation to Taipei.
But congressional critics of the joint U.S.-Chinese communique said the agreement hurts Taiwan and violates the Taiwan Relations Act.
The pact is “full of double talk and false statements,” said Sen. Barry Coldwater, R-Ariz., one of Taiwan’s strongest supporters in Congress.
Reagan, however, told CBS anchorman Dan Rather that he will honor and obey the Taiwan act.
John H. Holdridge, assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, said at a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing that the agreement may have averted a “fatal deterioration” in relations between the United States and China.
Holdridge is testifying at the House Foreign Affairs Committee today.
Rather, who was called by Reagan Tuesday night, said: “Mr. Reagan told me and I quote: ‘There has been no retreat by me — no change whatsoever. We will continue to arm Taiwan. I am bound by and will obey the Taiwan Act... We have a moral obligation to Taiwan.’”
Reagan made his phone call to CBS during the evening news because he didn’t like the characterization of his arms decision as a policy reversal, White House spokesman Larry Speakes said.
Sen. Alan Cranston, D-Calif., said the agreement is “creatively ambiguous, preserving our option to continue any necessary defensive arms sales to Taiwan while maintaining our steady course of improving our relations” with China.
Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Charles H. Percy, R-Ill., agreed that “a certain amount of ambiguity may be helpful” in the communique, but that “there can be no ambiguity in implementing the Taiwan Relations Act.”
That act, passed in 1979 after the United States recognized the communist government of China, commits the U.S. government to provide Taiwan with arms necessary for its self defense. The act also says the United States will decide what Taiwan’s needs are.
China views Taiwan, where the Nationalist government fled after the communist takeover in 1947, as a renegade Chinese province.
The joint communique says the United States “does not seek to carry out a long-term policy of arms sales to Taiwan” and that “it Intends to reduce gradually its sales of arms to Taiwan, leading over a period of time to a final resolution.”
U.S. officials insisted the words “final resolution” didn’t necessarily mean an eventual cut-off of U.S. arms sales.
In Peking, however, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman said, “The final resolution certainly implies that U.S. arms sales to Taiwan must be completely terminated over a period of time.”
Reagan tax bill needs Democrat votes to pass
WASHINGTON (AP) - While President Reagan has been trying to quell a revolt by his conservative allies in the House, Senate support for his $98.3 billion tax increase has been slipping to the point that he may need a dozen Democrats to help pass it.
Not one of the 45 Democratic senators supported the original version when it was passed on a 50-47 vote last month. Only three Republicans voted no. But vote-counters say nine or more Republicans will oppose the compromise bill when the final vote is taken later this week.
That means Reagan and his allies will have to turn to Democrats if the bill is to become law, and they got their first breakthrough Tuesday. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., a persistent critic of Reagan’s economic policies, announced he will support the compromise because “we face a deepening danger of economic collapse.”
Kennedy said the Senate bill was improved somewhat by a Senate-House conference committee, which moderated Medicare cuts and added up to IO weeks of extra compensation for unemployed workers.
“But we must recognize that the tax bill by itself is not the solution; its passage offers only the hope that a bad situation will not become even worse,” Kennedy said in a Senate speech. “We dare not throw that hope away.”
A vote on the compromise is expected in the Democratic-controlled House on Thursday. If it passes there, it would go to the Senate for final consideration.
The bill, which includes $15.2 billion in cuts in
federal spending, mostly in health aid to the poor and elderly, is aimed at cutting the government’s borrowing in an effort to reduce interest rates and ease the worst recession since World War II.
The package includes higher taxes on cigarettes, airline tickets and telephone service; reduced deductions for medical expenses; a IO percent withholding on most interest and dividends; a stiffer minimum tax on upper-income individuals and corporations, and repeal of about one-third of the business tax cuts enacted last year.
Reagan and his backers have been trying to convince House Republicans that a tax increase does not represent abandonment of the president’s economic philosophy and that the only alternative is higher interest rates and fewer jobs.
Following a meeting Tuesday with Treasury Secretary Donald T. Regan, Rep. Bob Michel of Illinois, the House Republican leader, cautiously forecast victory.
Said Regan: “I think we’re going to win....”
White House spokesman Larry Speakes was less optimistic. “We have a way to go,” he said.
House Speaker Thomas P. O’Neill, a supporter of the bill, said Reagan’s Monday night speech in support of the bill does not guarantee passage. “Nobody really wants a tax bill... and Republicans better come up with a fair share of them (votes) or they’re going to have problems out there,” O’Neill said.
By White House estimate, at least half the 192 House Republicans are lined up in opposition.
Convicted man cleared
Watts confessed to Galveston attack
GALVESTON (AP) - The prosecutor of a Galveston man apparently unjustly convicted of an assault to which a mass murderer has confessed says his faith in the law is not shaken.
“The system works, but it’s not perfect,” said Galveston County District Attorney James Hury Tuesday after he dropped charges against Howard W. Mosley.
Coral Eugene Watts, who has confessed to ll slayings of women in Southeast Texas, admitted last week to a Jan. 30 attack in which the victim’s throat was slashed. The woman, Patty Johnson of Wisconsin Rapids, Wise., survived the assault.
But Mosley was not released immediately.
Hury said Mosley still faces another assault charge in an unrelated incident. He could again receive a life sentence because of two prior felony convictions. He also faces action by the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles because of a parole violations based on earlier convictions.
Watts, in a weeklong series of interrogations, has admitted killing ll women and assaulting several more in the Houston area. He also gave detailed descriptions of assaults in which his victims escaped.
“As a result of a statement by Watts and additional evidence which we investigated, we have dropped the case (against
Franklin found not guilty
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -Federal prosecutors say they consider the sniper shooting of black civil rights leader Vernon E. Jordan Jr. a closed case despite Joseph Paul Franklin’s acquittal by an all-white jury.
“All right,” said Franklin, smiling and flashing a victory sign as the jury found him innocent Tuesday night after eight hours of deliberations. The 32-year-old racist had been charged with violating Jordan’s civil rights by shooting him outside a Fort Wayne motel on May 29, 1980.
Franklin is serving four life terms on state and federal charges for the sniper killings of two black men in Salt Lake City. He also has been charged in Oklahoma City and Indianapolis with four sniper killings believed to be racially motivated.
Jordan, 47, then president of the National Urban League, was
wounded in an ambush as he stepped out of a car driven by a white woman who was a board member of the local chapter of the National Urban league.
“The decision of Franklin’s guilt or innocence was up to the jury, and we accept what they did,” said Daniel F. Rinzel of the Justice Department’s civil rights division. He said the government did not plan to reopen its investigation of the Jordan shooting.
“This case is finished,” Rinzel said outside the courthouse.
Defense lawyer J. Frank Kimbrough left the courtroom hurriedly without comment, and Franklin was taken away in a van, its windows covered with newspaper and cardboard.
“I just hope that at some time the perpetrator can be found and appropriately punished,” said Benjamin Hooks, executive director of the NAACP, after the

Mosley),” Hury said. Watts was taken to the area of the assault and was able to tell officers details that police said only the assailant would know.
Mosley’s attorney, Robert Hoskins of Galveston, filed a motion for a new trial before district judge Allen Lemer. The judge granted the motion after Hury said he would not contest it. The district attorney then immediately dismissed the charge against Mosely.
Mrs. Johnson had identified Mosley in a lineup before he was tried. Police said Watts and Mosley resemble each other, although Mosley is 9 inches taller.

verdict. Speaking in New York, he said “we have to accept” the jury’s decision.
An attempt to reach Jordan at his home in New York for comment was unsuccessful. His wife, Shirley, said he was in Washington.
Rinzel declined to say whether the government’s evidence would be turned over to local officials for prosecution.
The county prosecutor in Fort Wayne has said he did not have enough evidence to indict Franklin for the shooting at the Marriott Inn.
After the verdict was read, U.S. District Judge Allen Sharp polled the jurors to make sure the verdict was unanimous.
“Your decision, while a controversial one, is well within the law and well within the evidence,” Sharp told jurors.
Prosecutors denied the case had been politically motivated.
