People The Salina Journal Monday, April 8,1985 Page 2: George Michael perform for a capacity crowd in Peking. Wham makes it big in China PEKING (AP) — With sexy dancers in strapless dresses, colored strobe lights and a hard-driving backup band, Britain's pop sensation Wham stunned a mostly Chinese crowd at a packed Peking stadium Sunday night in Communist China's first big-name rock concert. "I'm just a love machine, and I won't work for nobody but you," blond lead singer George Michael and partner Andrew Ridgeley belted out as they pranced around an elaborate stage in Peking Workers' Gymnasium. The nearly two-hour, 10-song performance, including the hits "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go," and "Careless," had young foreigners in the crowd of 12,000 on their feet, despite warnings by roaming police to sit down. At least three Chinese youths who got up to dance were hauled away by green-uniformed security officers. But most stared in polite bewilderment as Michael and Ridgeley strutted, clapped, crooned, bumped and can-canned with two scantily clad go-go girls who changed outfits six times in the show, from skimpy, strapless black costumes to purple polka-dot miniskirts. Wham's music has officially been labeled "healthy" in China's changing society, where in the 1960s and 70s the Communist Party banned dancing and considered Western pop as banal and filthy. Some foreign rock songs and dances are still regarded with suspicion. Joan Baez plans autobiography TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Folk singer Joan Baez says she's "walking history" and that she's writing an autobiography. Baez, 44, was in Tucson for two concerts to benefit the Sanctuary Movement to aid refugees from Latin America. "I feel close to the movement. It is a serious and loving one that I want to give an extra little kick," she said. The shows ended a seven-week tour. Baez said she is busy writing an autobiography that "will hopefully provide a perspective of my whole career until the paralysis of the '80s. I'm walking history at the moment." Joan Baez Man can marry mother-in-law LONDON (AP) — Queen Elizabeth II has given formal assent to a special law permitting a 29-year-old truck driver to marry his mother-in-law. Alan Monk has been seeking permission to marry Valerie Hill, 48, since he divorced her daughter, Jeanette, in April 1983. The House of Lords approved a law last December specifically permitting the marriage while leaving untouched a law prohibiting marriages between close relatives, and the queen has given her formal assent. Lennon limo has high price tag NEW YORK (AP) - The price is high: $200,000 to $300,000 for a 1965 Rolls-Royce Phantom V touring limousine being put up for auction. But it's no ordinary Phantom V; it was used by the Beatles. The 19-foot limousine, which has less than 50,000 miles on its odometer, was painted with scroll work and floral designs created by a gypsy mystic working with the late John Lennon, who owned the car. In 1977, three years before Lennon was shot and killed outside his Manhattan apartment building, he and his wife, Yoko Ono, gave the limo to the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, which is selling the car at a June 29 auction. Egg on their faces? Not these champions ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A pair of exacting engineering students at the University of Rochester will split $100 for winning a high- technology egg toss contest. The winners kept a raw egg intact after catapulting it three times in- Side a stubby white rocket onto a bull's-eye more than 30 feet away. "It was wonderful," university spokesman Stephen Braun said of the contest. "There were many scrambled eggs, however." Michael Donahower and Vut San- kanung scored 26 of a possible 30 points to claim their third consecutive title in the annual contest sponsored by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. They were among 12 entries. One contestant was disqualified for cruelty to bunnies after launching an egg crammed into a stuffed pink Easter bunny. The Salina Journal P.O.

Mondale blames self for landslide defeat WASHINGTON (AP) - Walter Mondale, looking back on his landslide defeat in the 1984 presidential election, said Sunday he "fundamentally mishandled my case to the American people" by failing to emphasize the positive side of his message. "They heard opportunity from the other side, they didn't hear it from me," the former Democratic presidential nominee said in an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press." It was Mondale's first apearance in an national forum since the November election in which President Reagan carried 49 states for the most lopsided re-election victory in American history. Mondale carried only his home state of Minnesota and the District of Columbia. Mondale said he continues to think he "was essentially correct on the fundamental issues." But, he said, he was no match for President Reagan when it came to communicating with the American people. "The fact of the matter is, President Reagan's ability to communicate — even things that I think are demonstrably not accurate — verges on genius," Mondale said. "I don't think anybody accused me of the same capability." In the future, he said the Democrats "must find a candidate who, in addition to being right on the issues and stating them correctly, can master this modern challenge of communication in this huge country of ours." Mondale also criticized Reagan for agreeing with Senate Republicans to a budget compromise that would cut 2 percent from the cost- of-living increase to program recipients. Mondale said Reagan "backed off his commitment" made during the campaign not to tamper with Social Security. Asked about the Republican contention that Reagan's commitment did not apply to the cost-of-living increases, Mondale replied, "That won't wash and the record won't sustain that at all." He predicted Congress would refuse to go along with the proposal Walter Mondale that would protect Social Security recipients against the first 2 percent of any increase in the cost of living, but not the next 2 percent. Mondale disagreed with analysts who contend he was particularly hurt by a perception he was too closely tied to special interest groups such as organized labor, teachers and feminists. "I don't believe that was the essential problem," he said. "My approach was above all a commitment to the public interest and not to the special interests. But I'm not sure that's the way it appeared to the American people." He said that "where I think I fundamentally mishandled my case to the American people is that I dwelt unduly on the problems, the solution to the problems, the penalty and the sacrifice surrounding it and not enough on what my real point was, that we had to do these things in order to move confidently into the future, to have the change that was essential and to have the jobs, the hope, the opportunity, the expanded prosperity that was necessary. "I do not think I emphasized the positive the way I should." Mondale said there was no chance he would run for public office again. "I intend to speak out, I intend to write, I intend to be a committed working Democrat," he said. Everyone's upset with Reagan's new budget WASHINGTON (AP) - President Reagan's considerable skills as a political salesman will be needed when his newest budget package is taken up in the Republican-controlled Senate, where GOP Leader Robert Dole predicts lawmakers will "fire at will." From a slowdown in Social Security increases to cutbacks in farm programs, there is much for indi- Analysis vidual Republican senators not to like, no matter how committed they are to reducing federal deficits. If the agreement negotiated between the White House and a small group of GOP Senate leaders isn't picked apart by the Republican rank-and-file senators, the Democrats are certain to try. They hope to regain control of the Senate next year and are likely to force roll call after roll call to make Republicans stand up and be counted on politically painful domestic cuts. Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynhian, D- NTV.V sounded the first alarm within hours after the new budget compromise was announced Thursday: "If this proposal is enacted into law, it would cost the average Social Security beneficiary $1,320 in the next five years, and push nearly one million Americans below the poverty line by decade's end," he said. The new budget will be put before the Senate during the week of April 22. Reagan, Dole and their allies are not underestimating the difficulties ahead in the Senate or the Democratic-controlled House, but the plan to cut $52 billion from next year's deficits and almost $300 billion in the next three years was a bargain both men needed. It amounted to a strong step forward on the president's overall, conservative agenda of sharply cutting back spending on domestic programs. For Reagan, the compromise also was victory because it met his one non-negotiable demand — no tax hikes. From the beginning, he has wanted the budget debate focused exclusively on spending cuts so tax reform could be considered separately later in the year. To win that point, he was forced to give ground on defense — about $69 billion over three years — abandon some of his domestic program cuts and alter his insistence that he would not support Social Security changes unless a bipartisan majority of Congress showed the way. But Republican senators knew, even if Reagan never admitted it, that the president had padded both his defense request and his list of recommended domestic changes against the day such a deal would have to be made. Under the plan, defense spending will still rise by 3 percent after inflation for each of the next three years, while most domestic programs will be held below the rate of inflation or eliminated.
