A spokesman for the state · v Department of Corrections said the demand for the, cest had . been rejected, along with Carrasco's proposal that five prison officials replace 10 of the 13 ' -hostages. i Carrasco proposed that the hostages to be exchanged be eight prison librarians ant teachers, a guard and a Romar · Catholic priest. Carrasco and his rebel companions are also · holding three prison inmates as hostages. Authorities said earlier day that they did not know i · there were any bombs where the hostages are being .held They later said there were sci ence kits in the area. Prison spokesman Ron Tay ,'lor also said officials may havi underestimated the amount o ammunition -that the convict: have and that bombs could bi constructed from gunpowder.

Joseph -- Passed, 213 for and against, an amendment weaken proposed regulations on strip mining. The amendment was attached to the overall strip-mining bill (above). The bill, in part, requires mine operators to restore land to its approximate natural contour. The amendment opened a loophole in that requirement by granting variances to operators who develop mined land for "agricultural, recreational or public facility purposes. There was little debate on the amendment. But, in general, members voting for felt that strip mine operators should have access to "legitimate" alternatives to expensive re-contouring oblfgations. M e m b e r s voting against generally favored the toughest possible strip-mining legislation. Alexander. Hammcrscluiiidt and Thornton voted "yea." back to conference with inslruc tlons to accept' th'e House' strong aht^busiirg language. ' Avt'yea" vole signaled strori opposition to busing. ' The House, language worn prohibit cross district busing o busing beyond the next-closes neighborhood school to achieve racial balance. The language was softened in conference to give the courts power to'force long-dislance busing.

William. Proxmire CD- Wise.) called such costs "a completely unnecessary 'rip-off of the home buyer." : . In opposing the amendment, SeriV-' ; William Brock ' (R-Tenn.) said, "The cost of the vast bureaucracy" needed to administer the VA and FHA. oversight ."could'not be justified by the amount of potential savings trict busing. In supporting recommittal. Sen- John Stennis (D-Miss.) said ending busing will give schools "a better chance to strive for the processes for which they "were created, education, rather 'than to change a social order."
