SAN ANGELO, Texas (AP) — Authorities who found the body of a missing soldier were awaiting autopsy results to learn how she died.

Miss McBride disappeared Feb. 18 from the base laundromat, where she was on guard duty Witnesses said the 19-year-old soldier was abducted as she talked on the telephone.

eastern Coke County, where he killed her.
Officers declined to discuss how Miss McBride was killed.

Candidate visits Austin
AUSTIN. Texas (AP) — Texas Sen. Phil Gramm is doing such a good job in the Senate, he ought to stay there, says m al Republican presidential candidate Lamar Alexander.
Campaigning in Gramm's backy ard Thursday, the former Tennessee governor said the GOP should nominate a Washington outsider, such as himself.
“Your senior senator is on the 1996 ballot. I wanted to come here and show my respect for him and endorse him for re-election to the United States Senate." Alexander said The same goes for Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole of Kansas, he added “Phil Gramm and Bob Dole both do a pretty good job in the United States Senate And I’ll be doing my best to persuade the people of Texas and the people of this w hole country that their greatest contribution to this country 's future is stay right where they are.
“What we ought to do is look outside Washington, D C., for someone with a little bit of a chief executive’s background to be the Republican nominee." he said.
Alexander spent time in the nation's capital, as a Senate and White House aide and U.S. education secretary He said the difference is that he also
served eight years as Tennessee governor. was president of the University of Tennessee, and helped start a business that now employs 1,200.
“I’ve been to Washington.” he said. “But unlike the others, I came home.”
Sporting a walking stick that once belonged to Texas hero Sam Houston. Alexander noted that his wife. Honey. grew up in Victoria, Texas. He said he won't concede the nation’s second-largest state to favorite son Gramm.
“None of us has any assurances about who will be doing well in the race in March of 19% (when the Texas primary will be held). I want to give Texans a choice whether Phil Gramm s in the race or whether he’s not in the race.
WWASHINGTON (AP) — Deflated House Republicans say Senate defeat of their treasured balanced budget amendment may make it tougher, but they still will produce plans for eliminating the federal deficit.
“W e're lo do our best,” Senate Budge? Committee Chairman Pete IVroenKv R N M . said after the Senate rc'ecied the amendment by the narrow est margin Thursday. “We always though? we couldn't get it done without a beancod budget amendment and its fuF reessure But we’re going to try.”
“I? makes it harder.” said his House counterpart. Rep. John Kasich. R-Ohio. “You have to spend some energy making sure you don't have people relax. But it's a crusade. The crusade goes on.”
That's just fine with President Clinton and his fellow Democrats, who know that the massive, unprecedented spending cuts necessary to balance the budget would enrage millions of voters. They quickly invited the GOP to proceed with its budget-cutting work, as House Republicans promised in their “Contract With America” campaign manifesto.
"They have still not presented their budget." Clinton told reporters at the White House. He added later that it was time for Republicans to show “how they are going to keep the promises of their contract on balancing the budget and paying for their tax cuts.”
“Now is the time for the Republicans ... to roll up their sleeves and actually
reduce the deficit,” House Minority Leader Richard Gephardt, D-Mo., said.
The amendment, which was to be the flagship of the GOP effort to cut spending, zoomed through the House in January in just two days. But it was shot down by the Senate after nearly five weeks of debate. The vote was 65-35 in favor, just shy of the two-thirds majority constitutional amendments need.
That margin was deceptive because Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, R-Kan., an amendment supporter, voted “no” in a parliamentary maneuver that will enable him to force a second vote on the measure, probably dunng the 1996 campaign season.
But even without the amendment, Domemci and Kasich say they will

WINTER REVIVAL '95
produce deficit-reduction measures this spring. Dole, who is planning a run for the White House, said Republicans would cut spending, raise no taxes and test Democratic dedication to deficit reduction with tough votes.
“They’ll be hiding under the couches,” he said.
The amendment called for a balanced budget by the year 2002, unless waived by three-fifths majorities of Congress. But it left unspoken what spending cuts or tax increases should be imposed — precisely the problem that has mired lawmakers as the national debt has surged to $4.8 trillion.
Nonetheless, opinion polls indicate the measure is backed by three of every four voters, though that margin plummets when people are asked about specific cuts that would be required to eliminate the red ink.
Opposition Democrats tried to turn Thursday’s vote into a struggle to protect Social Security, arguing that the amendment would leave its huge surpluses hostage to budget battles.
Democrats said the trust fund’s surplus should be excluded from deficit calculations, which would mean Republicans would have to come up with more than $500 billion in additional cuts to balance the budget over seven years.
Republicans pledged they would never cut the program, which is fiercely guarded by tens of millions of elder-

ly voters who receive its benefits.
To the last, Dole rummaged fruitlessly for a 67th vote. Six uncertain Democrats were wooed but ended up saying they feared mistreatment of Social Security’s trust funds. The lone Republican opponent, Sen. Mark Hatfield of Oregon, was pressured by colleagues, home-state lawmakers and Republican Party Chairman Haley Barbour, but he stuck to his conviction that the measure would trivialize the Constitution.
When senator’s names were called in the packed, breathlessly quiet Senate chamber, 51 Republicans and 14 Democrats answered “aye.” Thirty-three Democrats and Hatfield and Dole voted against it.
Five senators — including two Republicans — who voted against a similar measure last year voted “yes” this time. Six others, Democrats all, switched from support in 1994 to “no” votes — and heard it from Republicans, who accused them of thwarting the popular will.
Speaking of GOP hopes of boosting their Senate majority to a veto-proof 60 .in next year’s elections, House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga., said just before the vote, “I think a number of Democrats today are going to make that strategy easier.”
