IRA explosives
seized in raid
BELFAST (A) - Terrorist gunfire snuffed out two more lives
in Northern Ireland yesterday as the British army seized more
than 1,000 pounds of explosives in raids on Irish Republican Army
(IRA) hideouts.
The British army said it also captured 19 weapons, 2,000
rounds of ammunition and a large amount of bomb-making equip-
ment in searches that followed Friday's bombings and shootings
which claimed 16 lives, bringing the total deaths in three years of
strife to 471.

A few years ago, Fischer says, there was a '

The medical school uses cadavers for its

WASHINGTON ( )-Treasury
Secretary George Shultz said
yesterday the federal budget for
fiscal 1973 is worsening and
urged Congress to hold the line
on spending to prevent another
surge of inflation.
Shultz, announcing that the
federal deficit for the fiscal
year that ended June 30 reached
$23 billion, told newsmen that
the red ink for the current fis-
cal year could be well beyond
the $27 billion estimated if Con-
gress fails to exercise restraint.
He said that the Nixon ad-
ministration will try to submit
budget-cutting programs, some
before the 4ovember election,
to offset the rise in the federal
budget, Some reports have it
that the deficit will soar to al-
most $40 billion before the fis-
cal year ends next June 30.
Schultz, holding his first gen-
eral news conference, criticized
members of Congress who, he
said, "want to force a tax in-
crease on the American people
by cascading spending."
In a congressional hearing,
President Nixon's chief eco-
nomic adviser said heavy new

taxes on the rich cannot be
counted on to pay for new
domestic programs or balance
the budget.
Herbert Stein, chairman of
the Council of Economic Ad-
visers, said tlje federal budget
must be kept from exploding.
"It would be better to face
the expenditure problem now
than to count on successfully
facing the tax problem later,"
he told the Joint Economic
At the Treasury news confer-
ence, Caspar Weinberger, direc-
tor of the Office of Management
and Budget, said his office is
working on budget-cutting "off-
sets" that will be intended to

such as a 20 per cent rise in
Social Security, due to go into
effect in October.

cuts prove effective. He said the
people do not want a tax in-

can be avoided through trim-
