senators split on the effectiveness of President Reagans State of the Union address Wednesday night, with presidential hopeful Gary Hart calling it political sleight of hand." Hart said of Reagan: Like a juggler he tries to keep our attention riveted on his success so we wont notice the real failures. In a statement from his Washington office, Hart said the speech probably pleased defense contractors, wealthy businesspeople and administration officials, but not average Americans such as female heads of households. Hart, one of the announced Democratic presidential contenders, said Reagan does not understand the realities of America, and thats why this State of the Union should be his last. He said Reagan has doubled the national debt and quadrupled the deficit, but that the presidents proposal for a constitutional amendment requiring a balanced budget was notthe answer. The senator also said that while Reagan stresses the importance of education, school funding has been cut 14 percent over the past three years.

Its no wonder Ronald Reagan supports prayer in schools, because with this kind of program all well have. Armstrong, however, called the speech, upbeat and positive." He that much work remains to be done to get the budgefnnder control, But there's no doubt that the nation's economic health as measured by interest and inflation rates, consumer prices and unemployment is on more solid ground than a year ago. Other members of Colorados del-egatidn were pleased with Reagans addressing of economic issues. Rep. Ray Kogovsek, said, I think its about time the president listens to his advisers on a bipartisan commission formed to bring down deficits.

The hard part will be to live up to the recommendations of that commision, even the recommendations that he doesnt like. The Pueblo congressman said Reagan may not get all the defense and space spending he wants, as well as the tuition tax credits' for which hes been pushing. If Reagan refuses to go along with the panels findings, I think then its going to be a charade. I would hope hed understand how critical $200 billion deficits are, Kogovsek said. As for Reagans directive to NASA to develop a permanent, manned space station within a decade, Kogovsek said, I think we have enough problems right here on earth right now that need to be addressed.

Rep. Hank Brown, also called Reagans speech very positive and optimistic. He said Congress has failed to address budget deficits, and said Reagan's suggested bi-partisan approach was well worth trying. LONG BED ROCKWELL WOOD SHAPER JOINTER 4" jointer, stand and motor. Reg 685 99 File photo Sen.

Trujillo, who attended the speech in the House chamber at the invitation of Reagan, stood to acknowledge the cheers after the president described the medics effort to save his wounded comrades when U.S. forces invaded the Caribbean island last October. Trujillo was in the first helicopter to land at the compound held by Cuban forces. He received the decoration for heroism during a White House gathering last November. He saw three other helicopters crash.

Despite the imminent explosion of the burning aircraft, he never hesitated. He ran across 25 yards of open terrain through enemy fire to rescue wounded soldiers, said Reagan. Reagan paused, looked to where Trujillo was sitting next to Reagan's wife, Nancy, and spoke to him. Sgt. Trujillo, you and your fellow servicemen and women not only saved innocent lives, you set a nation (Tee.

You inspire us as a force for freedom, not tyranny, not despotism, and yes, for peace, not conquest God bless you. Listeners in the chamber stood as they erupted into cheers. Trujillo, dressed in his uniform, nodded slightly to acknowledge the applause and stood, holding his medal. After Reagan's speech, Trujillo told newsmen he had no idea that the president had invited him to the address in order to single him out I am embarrassed, he said. OPEN Keeps heat In.
