The Salina Journal Sunday, January 19,1986 Page 6 Explosions in Durban; fighting in Lesotho JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (AP) — Magnetic mines presumably planted by anti-apartheid guerrillas exploded four minutes apart in a power substation near Durban Saturday, nine days after three people were seriously hurt in similar explosions, police said. Police Capt. Winston Heunis said there were no casualties in the dawn blasts that cut power to a number of residential areas around the port city, scene of numerous bombings by guerrillas trying to topple South Africa's white-led government. Meanwhile, government radio in Johannesburg reported that as many State of Union speech directed at budget cuts WASHINGTON (AP) - President Reagan received a copy this weekend of a first draft of his State of the Union address, which officials said would attempt to explain drastic budget cuts in terms of letting taxpayers keep more of their own money. The traditional, annual speech to a joint session of Congress is scheduled this year for Jan. 28, and one official said it would be considerably shorter this year, and would be accompanied by a longer, more detailed written message. One aide said the president has approved the concept of the State of the Union speech but was to get his first look at a draft this weekend. The president is spending the long Martin Luther King Jr. federal holiday weekend at his Camp David retreat in Maryland after undergoing on Friday the first thorough examination of his colon since his surgery last summer for colon cancer. Asked if Reagan would try in his speech to prepare the nation for sacrifices that will be required by sharp spending cuts mandated by the Gramm-Rudman budget balancing legislation, one source said the president would take a much different approach to the issue. "In any engagement, 80 percent of the battle is how you frame the debate," the official said. "Rather than talking austerity and pain and suffering, you talk just the opposite. "You speak to the fact that what drives you to do this is the fact that with the lower deficit, lower federal spending for programs enhances economic growth, lowers interest rates, lowers inflation. "That, added to the fact of the very real dollar taken out of people's pockets to pay for these federal programs is relevant, real and valuable to the people paying the bill," the official said. "And that is the context in which I think you'll find the president speaking." Explaining Reagan's approach, the same official asked rhetorically, "What is more important to you, educating your kids, paying for your home, buying a new car or whatever economic decision you want to make, or paying for federal program X, Y orZ? "People can relate to that more than a zillion dollar budget or talking widgets." as 17 people may have been killed in fighting in Lesotho, the tiny mountain kingdom surrounded by South Africa. The South African Broadcasting Corp. said government paramilitaries fought Friday night gun battles with members of the youth wing of the Basotho National Party of Prime Minister Leabua Jonathan. SABC suggested that the paramilitaries were upset that members of the youth wing had over the past year been issued arms. The paramilitaries, a police force with military training, had previously been the sole armed force in the kingdom. SABC's news crews were expelled from Lesotho last week after being accused of inaccurately reporting evidence of a coup in the kingdom. No one claimed responsibility for the twin explosions at the electrical substation in Durban. The outlawed African National Congress guerrillas have either taken responsibility or been blamed for many previous bombings. The ANC is the main insurgency group trying to topple the government and its system of apartheid, under which 5 million whites dominate 24 million voteless blacks. The last blast in Durban, Jan. 9, was also a twin explosion — the first attracted police, rescuers, journalists and the curious, and the second turned them into victims, seriously burning three people. That detonation also was inside an electrical substation. Damage to the power station Saturday was limited, Heunis said. He identified the devices as limpet mines, which can be attached magnetically to metal targets the way limpets cling to rocky shores at low tide. The ANC guerrillas did not respond to telexes sent Saturday to their offices in Lusaka, Zambia. Couldn't have done it without you!
