This graph shows both income and
disbursements for President Carter's
proposed 1979 fiscal budget, which
would go into effect July 1. The budget
provides for total outlays of $500.2 bil-
lion, up from $462.2 billion during the
1978 fiscal year. Thirty-seven per cent
of proposed outlays will be direct bene-
fit payments to individuals, including
Social Security and welfare recipients.

"It is now up the the Congress to com-
mit itself to similar restraints, other-
wise the deficit will continue at levels
that will be impossible to defend before
the American public."
Carter reiterated his commitment to
a balanced budget but acknowledged
that the target date of 1981, which he set
during his presidential campaign,
might be missed if the economy needed

Chairman Al Ullman (D-Ore.) of the

Committee, who had already called the

which proposed tax tightening, projec-
ted to recoup some of the lost revenues,
would be approved.

reforms which would hit most heavily
on middle-class America," including

percent in 1977.
" Unemployment, 5.8 percent by the
fourth quarter, down from 6.2 percent
in 1978 and 6.6 percent in 1977. The
jobless rate in December of last year
was 6.4 percent.
CARTER SAID THE main elements
of his tax cut program for individuals
are to replace the existing $750 deduc-
tion for personal exemptions with a tax
credit of $240, and to reduce the income
tax rates from the current range of 14-
70 percent to a new range of 12-69 per-

savings for the typical family of four
with $15,000 income; $270 for a family
with $20,000 income, $320 for a family
with $25,000 income, and $322 for a
family withi$30,000 income.
Carter said he wants to increase
educational spending by $1.3 billion, a
gain of 14.2 percent that is the largest
hike since the Democrats controlled the
White House a decade ago.

"We're very happy it turned out this
way. Nov we can stop holding our
breaths," said Cornelia Landes who,
along with her husband Steve, has spent
the last three months trying to decide
what she would do if called to the stand.
While expressing relief at the
decision, Robert Henry, Belcher's
lawyer, cautioned that the main
issue-that of who should be mayor-is
"IT'S UP TO (Monroe county visiting
judge James) Kelley now to complete
the trial," Henry said. "We have here
an election decided by one vote and at
least 20 votes that are admittedly
illegal, so the only thing to do is to guess
how they voted, ignore the votes com-
pletely, or void the election."
Kelley, reached at home in Monroe
last night, said the proceedings would
be set to reconvene "as soon as
"I always wondered about (asking
the voters to tell), but that was the law,
and if (the Supreme Court) wants to
change it, I say fine," Kelley said.
There are no assurances that Congress will enact
Carter's budget as he proposed it. Indeed, it would be
unusual if Congress did not make major changes to
reflect its own spending priorities, which often are dif-
ferent from those of the White House.

O'Neill, however, said he thinks such
reforms could pass in the House, since
they involve relatively small sums for
each taxpayer, though large amounts
for the Treasury in the aggregate.
He said Democrats always stood for
employment, wages and a strong
economy "and we are not going to
sacrifice those for increases in defense
or any other."
THE DEPARTMENT -of Health,
Education and Welfare would receive
the largest portion of Carter's budget, a
total of $181.2 billion, up from $164.6
billion in 1978. Some $103.1 billion of this
will be for Social Security payments.
The Defense Department would
receive the next largest share, $115.2
billion, up from $105.3 billion in 1978.
Carter said this represents an increase
in real spending-meaning after in-
flation is discounted-of 3 percent. Vir-
tually all of that would be to strengthen
U.S. participation in the North Atlantic
The budget also contained Carter's
forecasts for the economy through 1979.
The targets are:
" Gross national product, to 4.9 per-
cent, from 4.7 percent in 1978 and 4.9
percent in 1977.
Inflation, consumer prices cut to 6

There are no assurances that
Congress will enact Carter's budget as
he proposed it. Indeed, it would be
unusual if Congress did not make major
changes to reflect its own spending
priorities, which often are different
from those of the White House.
Carter said his budget-preparers
used so-called zero-based-budgeting
techniques to give each agency's ex-
penditures special scrutiny. The
results, he said, have been "better,
more even-handed judgments."
