the purse snatcher jumped out of an Alley and snatched her then he started running Back Down the but he run because Newsome let go of the he you let Newsome hanging on with both being a purse he very Well let go of a so he just kept dragging the screaming Newsome along the after they travelled half a Block this Newsome lost her grip on the but then she grabbed him by one of his they went on that

but he no opposition in has or these three the chairmen of the Senate budget and foreign relations committees and the Senate majority three of the Best reasons for voting Republican in the states with Senate contests this As a practical they will Sway few if any Campaign consultants with whom Ive talked Are just about unanimous in saying that while party control of the Senate May matter a great Deal to Many to All politicians and political junkies to the most voters could not care Broder Young pitchers and myths dear Donohue i am a youth league Pitcher and i know that throwing a curve can injure your but everyone else uses that is it How you throw it or what none of the boys i know who do it have a Young Arm can be Hurt throwing any kind of pitch if the Arm is being the curve Ball has gotten a bad it now the experts say that if you throw that pitch correctly it wont harm thrown it i cant go into technique too but you should get firsthand advice from an older i do know it int thrown the Way i used to you dont do it with a Quick snap of the its How you hold the Ball and How you apply a slight outward turn of the hand away from your body on the Middle and in Dex fingers Are placed on the top right Side of the the Young pitchers who avoid Arm trouble Are the ones who keep their arms in shape during the exercising about three quarters the intensity used during the the shoulder and Arm Muscles have to get they Are the ones that hold the joints in wobbling joints Lead to you want a Good Book see if you can find injuries to the throwing Arm by and adults handling Young players

dear Donohue i am no longer a fan of yours since you wrote that article on cod liver my Mother read that and made me take i almost threw that is the grossest stuff Ever in so sick right i cant believe could you please reprint the Arti Cle and put something in it like further research has revealed that cod liver Oil will not work for people who dont like the brain releases a chemical that fights against my mom would buy that if you make it sound in sorry i did that to i got some and tasted gag City i dont know if a brain chemical caused but in not going to dismiss your theory out of heres a possible Way you can get the same benefits from eating two fish meals a if mom cant stand you can get cod liver Oil in Cap there the last thing on the mind of someone in Coeur is whether Lugar is a better chairman of foreign relations than the Man who would replace him if the democrats regained the Senate a Claiborne Pell of Rhode that Idaho voter will decide Between Steve Symms r and his John Evans on the basis of their merits or Down in Ive heard some democratic politicians say they think they can get people to vote against Mack Mattingly r by arguing that his defeat will help make the states popular democratic Sam chairman of the armed services i am sceptical of that after Mattingly can easily Point out that a vote against him will also help give Edward Ken Nedy his Choice of chairmanships of the judiciary or labor in our politics is so personalized and so devoid of party loyalty that few voters realize they Are making a double Choice when they vote for a House or Senate they Are picking their own spokesman in Washington and they Are simultaneously helping decide which party will organize Congress and control its having spent some time in recent weeks with Domenici and i cant help but wonder if most of us dont dismiss this ques Tion of party control too these three for the Overall performance of the Senate and for its budget and foreign policy of such exceptional Quality that their performance ought to weigh somewhere in the voters calculus this the member of the Trio Ive seen most is intellectually politically doggedly yet understanding and respectful of others the same qualities would be ascribed to Dole and Domenici by the vast majority of their colleagues in both parties and by the reporters who cover what is most striking about All three men is their Large their ability to see beyond their personal ambitions which in each substantial and beyond the parochial interests of their they approach the old United states Lugar has demonstrated those qualities most recently in persuading the Reagan administration to shift its policy in the Philippines away from Ferdinand Marcos and arms or what the lock horns i have the Best Par

Michigan Carl Levin but does not ruffle Kenneth the arms control and disarmament we have been trying to get the soviets to talk to us about nuclear testing verification for years and they have not shown an interest in doing Adelman said in an inter View we cannot beg them to discuss the but a Democrat and a member of the Senate armed ser vices on this Issue the russians want to he said in a separate were the ones who walked out and the russians Are willing to resume these i dont think anyone can argue the soviets Are unwilling to talk on this in the two Powers signed a treaty Banning nuclear weapons tests in the outer space and they did not outlaw underground but committed themselves to try to close this sole remaining area for nuclear soviet Leader Mikhail in a move dismissed by the Reagan administration As has unilaterally prohibited further soviet testing until his invitation to president Reagan to hold a special Summit meeting in Europe to ban tests permanently on both sides was rejected the stand is based on distrust of the soviets and a judgment that american nuclear weapons must be tested for safety and reliability As Long As the american strategy is to depend on them to deter a soviet at in two reports to the administration has accused the soviets of exceeding the 150kiloton limit set in a 1974 treaty restricting the size of underground by stressing Adelman underscored determination to make sure any future accords provide for modern ways of ensuring technology has advanced since former president Nixon met in 1974 with the late soviet Leader Leonid Brezhnev in Moscow in a Summit that produced the limited test ban Reagan has invited Gorbachev to Send soviet observers to the test site in Nevada to see How the equipment can be used to Monitor the Force of an underground there has been no response from negotiations on a comprehensive test ban were last held in president Carter let the talks lapse in the aftermath of the soviet intervention of Afghanistan and a general slump in rela Reagan in 1981 suspended the negotiations testing on both sides continued until Gorbachev announced a soviet moratorium last toward Corazon and in urging the Senate to reconsider its opposition to arms sales to saudi he stuck to his principles in both despite the evident political at the same time he recognized Why president Reagan was soft on Marcos and Why his col leagues were nervous about the saudi arms in both his tactics were effective and it is Likely that his judgment will be proved Domenici has shown the same tac tical sound judgment and political courage repeatedly Over the last five years on Tough issues of budget opposing the dog artists in the administration and in both parties on Capitol Dole has stuck his neck out so often on issues from civil rights to dividend and interest tax withholding that his courage has become almost this is not a plea to shut your eyes and vote Republican in the november Senate contest in your no
