WILLIAMSBURG, Va. — In an unprecedented campaign debate, Republican and Democratic leaders clashed cordially Sunday night over taxes, Medicare and the record of the OOP-controlled Congress. "We have delivered genuine welfare reform ... We had common sense health reform... We're going to have immigration reform," said Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott. "We have delivered for the American people," he said as the first GOP-led Congress in 40 years was on the verge of wrapping up its work. House Democratic Leader Richard Gephardt countered Republicans "tried to cut Medicare to pay for tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, they tried to cut school lunch and student loans." In addition, he said, the GOP tried to "raise taxes on working Americans." Lott, of Mississippi, and Gephardt, of Missouri, were joined by House Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia and Democratic leader Sen. Tom Daschle of South Dakota in colonial WiUiamsburg, Va., for the 60- minute debate shown live on PBS. The clash occurred a little more than five weeks before Election Day. Moderator Jim Lehrer set the stakes in the opening moments of the encounter: "The outcome of those (elections) will decide which party will control Congress" in January. In the debate's final moments, Lott said a renewed Republican majority would try again to pass tax cuts and balance the budget. Daschle touted the Democrats' "Families First" agenda, which stresses modest measures to improve health and pension coverage for Americans. For the most part, the congressional leaders discussed issues they have disagreed over since the day Gingrich took the gavel as speaker in January 1995. They rarely if ever raised their voices, though. And whatever their personal feelings — the relationship between Gephardt and Gingrich is particularly strained — they ad- dressed one another by their first names as they sat facing each other at wooden desks. The debate briefly turned pointed near the end, though. Gingrich accused the AFL-CIO of spending millions to defeat Republicans this fall, using "dues money that is coerced" from its members. Daschle instantly retorted Republicans had invited polluters into the committee rooms last year "to figure out ways" to make the air and water dirtier. Gingrich, architect of the 1994 GOP House takeover, countered the Democratic claims on Medicare by saying the official trustees' report noted the giant program is "going broke," and Republicans were trying to save it. The GOP prescription, he said, would raise spending per beneficiary from $4,800 to $7,100 over seven years — a "big increase." Daschle, too, criticized Republicans for proposing Medicare cuts to fund tax cuts for the rich, then turned his aim on their record on education. He said the GOP proposed "the biggest cuts in the history of our country" then detailed a long list of programs the GOP had taken aim at. In addition, he said, they "advocated the abolition of the Department of Education. I believe that's an extreme proposal." PBS aired the debate as part of its "Democracy Project," and across the country, candidates for local House or Senate races staged debates in the preceding hour. The setting for the leadership debate was the historic House of Burgesses in colonial Williamsburg, the seat of the first representative legislature in the Western Hemisphere. The presidential campaign hovered in the background throughout. Lott and Gingrich touted GOP presidential candidate Bob Dole's call for a sweeping series of tax cuts. Daschle referred to Clinton's own smaller tax cut in return. Gingrich and Lott worked to deflect the persistent Democratic attacks on GOP spending priorities. Lott said "wasteful Washington spending" was one of the issues that Republicans were determined to deal with. And when Daschle challenged Gingrich to back off his call for abolition of the Education Department, the GOP speaker rebutted with sharp criticism of the agency's bureaucracy.

Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him." —H Samuel 22:31 Chrysler, UAW reach agreement General Motors is the last big automaker to settle talks with union By The Associated Press AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — The United Auto Workers union reached a tentative agreement Sunday with Chrysler on a new national contract, leaving General Motors as the only Big Three automaker still without a deal. UAW President Stephen Yokich said the contract was similar to the one reached Sept. 16 with Ford, but he declined to release details pending a meeting with union leaders later this week. The Ford contract is a three- year deal that guarantees the automaker will maintain at least 95 percent of its 105,025 UAW jobs. Yokich had indicated earlier he thought the Ford contract should set an industry "pattern" Chrysler and GM could endorse. "Is there a pattern that's been set? The answer's yes," Yokich said. The Ford deal also gives a $2,000 lump sum payment in the first year, followed by 3 percent raises in the second and third years. Yokich appeared with Chrysler Chairman Robert Eaton at a news conference at the automaker's world headquarters to announce the surprise agreement. As late as Friday, union and company officials had indicated the talks were still at the subcommittee stage. But both sides said talks intensified over the weekend, even though there was no immediate threat of a strike. "We never faced a strike deadline as such," Eaton said. "We worked together very, very well. There was not a lot of emotion, but an awful lot of negotiation on both sides." Yokich, who has broken many UAW bargaining traditions in this round of Big Three talks, said the union recognized it needed to do things differently. "We're in a competitive market, a worldwide market," he said. To qualify, the roads must be paved and able to handle tour buses and large recreation vehicles. The applications include mile- by-mile evaluations of the proposed routes. Clearinghouse officials will evaluate each mile of the proposed route, rating its scenic attributes, and make recommendations to the Kansas Scenic Byways Advisory Board. The board, which met last week to start considering applications, will make the final designation. Two highways in Kansas have been designated scenic byways — the Flint Hills Scenic Byway, a stretch of K-177 from Council Grove to Cassoday, and the Frontier Military Scenic Byway, which runs along the eastern edge of the state. The Frontier Military Scenic Byway starts at K-5 near Leavenworth and continues on Interstate 435 south to U.S. Highway 69 and Alternate Highway 69 to the Oklahoma border. The Flint Hills byway is considered a pilot project for the Kansas scenic byway program. The frontier military byway, originally a military road dating back to 1838, was designated a scenic route by the 1990 Kansas Legislature. Divine said Bucher, Willis & Ratliff received a $383,000 contract from the Department of Transportation to operate the clearinghouse. Roads designated scenic highways are marked on official state maps. The program is designed to preserve the scenic aspects of the roads, enhance the area with turnouts, interpretative signs and overlooks and promote the route for the traveling public. "It's a grassroots activity," Divine said. The applications are made by local residents, groups or governments. A possible disadvantage of the designation could be increased Kansas scenic byway applicants include: • 45 miles of K-140 in Saline and Ellsworth counties. • 16 miles of K-232 along the east edge of Wilson Lake in Ellsworth, Lincoln and Russell counties. • 48 miles of U.S. 83 in Logan and Scott counties past the Chalk Pyramids and Monument Rocks. • 16 miles of K-8 in Smith County. • 392 miles of U.S. 36 stretching from the Missouri border to the Colorado line along the counties on the northern tier of Kansas. traffic. But Divine said residents might consider that an advantage if they desire more tourism. Divine said the clearinghouse advises applicants to have community meetings to discuss zoning, ordinances and concepts involved with scenic byways. In areas where no zoning exists, those making the application should make sure property owners along the proposed route know about the effort. The program could eventually include other designations such as: •A scenic back-way designation for unpaved roads in scenic areas. • Roads with scenic places that don't have scenic significance along the route. • And roads that aren't scenic but have sites of historical or cultural interest. For more information about the program, call the clearinghouse at 1-800-684-6966.
