RECORD DEFIC
Carter
(Continued from Page1)
end following two days of talks
in Washington with businessper-
sons and members of Congress.
Carter left Washington Friday
night, saying that when he en-
ters the White House on Jan.
20, he will give priority to jobs
and would recommend tax cuts
only to the extent they were
needed to stimulate the econo-
my.
ONE ADVISER suggested that
y the prospect of proposing a rec-
ord budget deficit so soon after
taking, office is among the rea-
- sons Carter is delaying any
quick decision on a tax cut or
jobs program for 1977.
There also is some concern
in the Carter camp that Con-

IT POSSIBLE:
plans
gress may balk at approving
a record deficit.
It is partly to counter these
concerns that Carter has his
transition staff preparing an an
ti-inflation program that could
be disclosed at the same tim
any economic initiatives are an-
nounced after the President
elect is sworn in Jan. 20.
SEVERAL Democratic con
gresspersons he met in Wash
ington told him that creatin
new job opportunities was the
soundest way to meet economi
challenges, because tax cut
would not help the army o
eight million unemployed.
The deficit for fiscal 1977
which started on Oct. 1, already
is likely to be near $60 billion

budget
, according to congressional budg-
et experts. Anything Carter does
e to increase spending or cut tax-
s es is almost certain to push it
- above the record deficit of $65.6
d billion in fiscal 1976, they add.
e If Carter decides on the $15
- billion to $20 billion jobs and
- tax cut program his advisers
are recommending, the poten-
- tial 1977 budget deficit could
- be as high as $80 billion.
e CARTER HAS repeatedly gone
c out of his way to emphasize
s that he hasn't yet committed
f himself to any program. He said
recently that he prefers spend-
ing for jobs rather than a tax
ycut to stimulate the economy.
, PART OF CARTER'S problem
in getting public support for lar-
ger budget deficits is that ma-
ny fiscal conservatives, includ-
ing Treasury Secretary William
Simon and Federal Reserve
Board Chairman Arthur Burns,
have blamed the persistent defi-
cits of the past 15 years for the
nation's inflation problems.
But Arthur Okun, chairman of
the Council of Economic Advis-
ers under President Lyndon
Johnson, said Friday there is
little danger that large budget
deficits will increase inflation
while the economy is operating
below its capacity.

decorum and deportment were
of the essence is confronted by
the pitiless reality of a baby
found dead under a dormitory
bed.
Authorities are .investigating
the case of a sophomore who
gave birth to the full-term baby
boy, found dead in a plastic bag
on Nov. 15.
The cause of death has not
been disclosed, but the state
medical examiner expects to
issue a report this week.
The young mother, who has
not been identified, first en-
tered the school last Septem-.
ber. She was hospitalized after
the body was discovered and
now is recuperating at her
home, out of state.
Did her parents, the school
authorities, or other students
know she was pregnant?
Headmaster Warren Hance
won't comment.
' ON DEC. 3, he called an as-
sembly and told the' students:
"The ordeal and trauma which
she experienced is beyond my
comprehension. To the best of
my knowledge, there were no
other persons involved in this
matter."
"Our school is like a. braided
rug," Hance said. "Each of our
aims, our activities, our good
times, and our bad times are
so entwined with one another
that when something tragic oc-

curs to one of us, we are all
affected by it."
The girls have been warned
not to talk with reporters. Some
trot ofd with a toss of their po-
ny-tails. Some seem frightened
and apologetic.
"PLEASE, I'M SORRY, but
I just can't talk," said one
girl.
"We heard she was pregnant
when she got here," said one
school employe, who asked not
to be identified. "It's really no
big deal. Girls get pregnant all
the time. It's, just because this
is the exclusive Miss Porter's
School that it's news.
"Elsewhere babies are found
in garbage cans, and nobody
cares."
THE TOWN OF Farmington
is neither aghast nor abuzz
about the case. Some boys from
Farmington High School have
driven past Miss Porter's and
shouted obscenities or sung thel
song: "Having My Baby."
But mostly, people feel sorry.
Oh, yes, I saw the girl. I
could tell she was pregnant,"
said one elderly shopkeeper who
also asked to remain anony-
mous. "She used to come in,
here with other girls. She was
wearing a maternity top or
smock," she said.
"Too bad that with the mon-
ey her family must have she
couldn't have had an abortion,
or put the baby up for adop-
tion."

Paul Siebel numbers among his
admirers David Bromberg, who
used to back him up, Emmy Lou

him in the Village, and Linda

A couple of his more famous
songs are "Louise" and "Any

"Too bad she couldn't of went
to her own mother," said How-
ard Griffin, a gravedigger.
GARY PAWLOS, 16, a Farm-
ington High School pupil, said
there are a few snickers at the
public school, "because Miss
Porter's girls are supposed to
be so dainty and proper."
But he said most felt sorry
for the girl and thought she
should have had an abortion or
put the child up for adoption.
Alfie Frugge, 62, leaned on his
mop at the Sarah Porter Me-
morial where the lady, monocle
in her lap, looked sharply down
from an oil painting.
"Well, sometimes I think it's
bad that the old discipline and
old morality of Miss Porter
gives way," he said. "But I
guess it's right. The world is
changing. And nothing's going
to keep babies from being born.
It's just too bad that baby didn't
live."
