Radio games
A new game series called "Let's Play Botticelli" premieres this
week over the University's public radio station WUOM (91.7 FM).
Beginning Feb. 3, the program will be sent over the airwaves every
Saturday at 11 p.m. The game, resembling "20 questions", involves
guessing famous names. One player assumes the name of a famous
person, living or dead. Only the first initial of the last name is revealed
to the other players. Players try to guess the person's identity until
his/her name is revealed. "Botticelli makes fascinating listening,"
says series producer Shirley Smith. "Each week, we'll have six
players from various fields. Participants are selected on their ability
to recall facts and names quickly." Contestants in the premiere
program will be Dr. Robert Green of the Medical School, com-
poser/poet Steve Schwartz, Prof. Diane Kirkpatrick of the Art History
Dept., actress Kathe Wright, graphic artist Tom Pettit, and or-
nithologist Ron Orenstein.
Big Bucks from Washington
WUOM also got some good news from Washington recently in the
form of a $150,000 grant from the Department of Health, Education
and Welfare's (HEW Office of Education. WUOM was just one of 124
public radio and television stations across the country to receive gran-
ts totaling more than $18 million. The grants will help establish some
new stations as well as help both television and radio stations upgrade
and expand their operating equipment. Some will acquire mobile
equipment to enable them to produce local programs. Some of the
money will aid television stations to convert to color. Many of the
stations, both radio and television, will increase their tower height and
install more powerful transmitters.
Planetary confusion
In yesterday morning's Astronomy 102 lecture, Prof. Gordon
McAlpine was trying to explain the center of gravity concept for two
planets of differing sizes revolving around each other. He proceeded to
totally confuse both himself and the filled lecture hall when he tried to
get the orbital directions (North-East-West-South) straight. "You
wonder why we (astronomers) can't read a road map!" he explained,

Dial 'A' for adventure
Two recent college graduates have formed a group which
promises to match appropriately qualified adventurers with ex-
peditions being formed daily in all parts of the world. Chris White, a
Princeton graduate in biology and his long-time climbing partner Jim
Stout, a University of Washington geographer, are the directors of
"Expedition Research", an Annapolis-based organization. "There is a
terrific need for people with interests ranging from archaeology to
scuba diving to zoological research," White said. "We put them in
touch with the expedition organizers who have registered with us."
White and Stout developed the idea five years ago and they say it
should eventually become the information clearinghouse for scientif-
ic and exploratory expeditions worldwide. "Although we cannot ad-
vertise for them directly," Stout says, "we will release their resumes
and other information about them, to all registered expeditions which
are in the formation stage." These expeditions cost from $500 to $1,000.
But individuals are sometimes paid to assist professors in the field.
People-interested in registering can write: Expedition Research, Inc.,
P.O. Box 467R, Annapolis, Md., 21404.
Beating a rap
Americans, especially Easterners, have labeled California as the
"land of the crazy people." A recent case faced by a California
superior court judge, Donald McCartin, may help to explain why. Mc-
Cartin ruled that a man in an irreversible coma will no longer have to
pay alimony to his ex-wife. He said the issue at hand was whether
Los Angeles lawyer Herbert Blitz, 47, who has been in a coma since
July, is legally dead, and therefore, no longer liable to pay alimony. A
lawyer for his ex-wife argued that Blitz was still breathing and that his
heart still worked. Blitz's lawyer, however, submitted a doctor's
declaration stating Blitz was "functionally dead." Asked afterwards if
the decision meant anyone in an irreversible coma need no longer pay
alimony, Blitz's present wife's lawyer replied, "It can be interpreted
that way. So far, no mass westward movement by brain-dead divor-

Budget deficit


WASHINGTON (AP) - The economy
will suffer a turndown in the second half
of 1979, making it nearly impossible for
President Carter to hold the budget
below $30 billion, the Congressional,
Budget office said yesterday.
Carter has said that holding theI
budget deficit to $30 billion or less is! a,
key part of his fight to control inflation.-
But the budget office said that without
more spending cuts, the deficit is likely1
to balloon to about $41 billion.
THE BUDGET OFFICE reached that
assessment in its analysis of the
president's budget for fiscal 1980, which
begins next October 1. Carter's budget
calls for $531.6 billion in spending,
$502.6 billion in receipts and a defitic of
$29 billion.
Based on a less optimistic economic
forecast, the congressional analysis
projects higher government spending,
less revenue and a bigger deficit than
does the administration.
An economic turndown affects the
deficit because it means slower
economic growth, meaning the
economy does not create as many new
jobs as anticipated. That leads to
higher unemployment, which means
both lower tax revenues and higher ex-
penditures for such things as unem-
ployment compensation and food stam-
discrepancies between his ad-
ministration's projections and those of
other economists, Carter defended his
figures, saying they took into account
the economy's strong showing at the
end of 1978 and other factors.
The president described economic

to rise
growth figures for late 1978 as
"vigorous and broad-based." He said
he also foresees a drop in inflation, a
stronger dollar and a smaller trade
deficit in 1979,
The Congressional Budget Office,
however, said that "although the
economy does not yet show significant
signs of weakening, continued high
rates of inflation appear to be sowing
the seeds of a downturn."
