Democrats Grind Housa Business To Halt In Anger Over Laughlin
WASHINGTON (AP) — The House’s newest Republican, Texan Greg Laughlin, is having his cake and eating it too.
As House Democrats continued to seethe with anger Thursday over Laughings defection and the prize plum handed him by the GOP, the man in the eye of the storm was munching on a celebratory cake ordered up for him by Texas Republicans.
The festive scene at the weekly Texas GOP caucus luncheon belied the maelstrom of political discontent raging in the Capitol.
Democrats forced a rare all-nighter Wednesday — and threatened more disruption — to protest Republicans’ decision to grant Laughlin a prized seat on the House Ways and Means Committee while denying Democrats added, representation on the influential panel.
“The power of the gavel also comes with the responsibility to respect democracy itself,” House Democratic Leader Richard
Gephardt said at a news conference denouncing the GOP actions.
Supreme Court Rulos Against Formula Conaumors
AUSTIN (AP) — The Texas Supreme Court has ruled against a group of consumers who accused four baby formula makers of hying to monopolize the market and overcharging for their babies’ nourishment.
In a 7-2 opinion Thursday, the court rejected the consumers’ claims, saying they were inappropriate under the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.
Eight women from Central and East Texas filed the suit in May 1992 against Bristol-Myers Squibb Co., its wholly-owned subsidiary Mead Johnson & Co., Abbott Laboratories Inc., a division of Ross Laboratories Division and American Home Products Corp.
The women alleged the formula makers worked with physicians, nurses and other hospital staff to push their formula over others.

Fred and his family returned to the U.S. and he was reassigned to Abilene, Texas. In 1959, they were sent to Madrid, Spain, and while there, Fred was* a Club Steward. He had the opportunity to travel all over Europe in connection with the club and his work. They returned to the U.S. in 1963 and came to Mountain Home, and for the first time since childhood, Fred found his home. He retired from the Air Force in 1965 and in 1966 became a member of the Postal Service. In 1976, he retired from the Postal Service to do something he’d always wanted to do...construction. Fred built three homes in Mountain Home and did remodeling work from Idaho to California to Arizona.
Fred had a strong faith throughout
his life, faith in the Lord. He never wavered from his faith, a faith he practiced every day. Fred never knew a stranger, was quick with a smile and a firm handshake and there was never a time when he turned away from anyone who needed his help. Fred lived by his Christian beliefs and never doubted human kindness. He was a member of the Faith Lutheran Church and held the office of Elder and was a trustee for the church. His life centered around his family and his Father in heaven, who most graciously accepted him on Saturday.
Fred is survived by his wife of 50 years, Vivian June Sielaff; his daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph (Karen) Mur-

Two Texans Volo With GOR on Budgot
WASHINGTON (AP) — Two Texans were among the eight House Democrats breaking from their party to vote with Republicans on a budget blueprint that promises an end to federal deficits by 2002 while providing $245 billion in tax cuts.
Republicans were triumphant Thursday with passage in the House and Senate on near-party-line votes of their fiscal framework for reduced taxes and spending cuts.
Reps. Ralph Hall of Rockwall and Pete Geren of Fort Worth, who joined with Republicans in passing most of the GOP’s “Contract With America,” were among the eight Democrats backing the budget blueprint.
“I don’t agree with every detail of this plan, but it’s the only plan to balance the budget that we’ve seen in
l I . u . . 30 years, and it’s an opportunity that

Sharp: Madleald Block Grant I* Proposal Would Dovaatato Texas, Sunbelt
WASHINGTON (AP) —Texas hospi- • tats would lose $4 billion in federal Med- * icaid funds under proposals pending in Congress that would allocate the money to states under a new block-grant formula, says Texas Comptroller John Sharp.
The Democrat was in the nation’s capi- ' tai Thursday, pushing an alternate formula ; that would allocate Medicaid funds on the basis of population, benefiting Texas and other growing Sunbelt states.
In addition to meeting with more than *" half of Texas’ 32-member congressional delegation, Sharp also talked with House Democratic Leader Richard Gephardt and > others.
Now that Congress has adopted a GOP balanced-budget blueprint that includes 1 $182 billion in reduced Medicaid spending ~ over the next seven years, the mechanics of “ how to achieve the savings must be hashed I out.
Texas would fare $3 billion better over -seven years under the population-based •" block-grant formula than the one being ; pushed by some Republican governors. *#
