WASHINGTON Domestic poverty last
year reached its highest level since 1565, the
government reported Tuesday, and the White
House said President Reagan plans to appoint
a bipartisan task force to make a "no-holds-barred

WASHINGTON Democrats on the Sen
ate Foreign Relations Committee, led by presi
dential hopeful Alan Cranston, failed to force
a vote Tuesday on a House-passed resolution
calling for a nuclear weapons freeze.

tion, cast along party lines, the Republican
dominated panel blocked the vote that Cran
ston and other Democrats were seeking. .
Cranston, D-Calif., charged that the
Republicans were "unwilling to stand up and
be counted on the issue of the freeze."
Sen. Jesse Helms, R-N.C, leading the op
position to a committee vote on the freeze,
suggested the backers of the resolution were
politically motivated, saying "If the television
cameras were not here, we wouldn't even be

The holiday would be observed on the third
Monday of January, and would be the

by the House vote and hopes the Senate "will
move as swiftly and responsibly."

Soles, D-Columbus, to help two FBI agents
with a Uquor-by-the-drink referendum because
the agents were giving him financial help.
