WASHINGTON (A2) - An Air

Greenland Sunday plunging per-

seven feet of ice and into freez-

sources said yesterday.
The Pentagon, announcing bare
bone details of the accident, said
the devices were unarmed "so
there is no danger of a nuclear
explosion at the crash site."
The Defense Department dis-
closure of the crash came 18

WASHINGTON (IP)-The John-

Congress Monday a $3 billion series
of budget cuts ranging from space
to highways in a new attempt
to win quick passage of its 10 per

Secretary of the Tr'easury Henry
H. Fowler said some of the cuts
slated for the next fiscal year in,

He called enactment of the 10
per cent surcharge on individual

"single most important and indis-
pensible step" toward stemming
inflation, defending the dollar
abroad and maintaining stable
economic growth.

spending for the next fiscal year on

they have no control.
