cussions, possibly leading to ao

India tells new econor

NEW DELHI, Ind i a (' -
India's new government unveil-
ed an economic plan yesterday
in keeping witls its promise to
shift the country's economic
thrust to the rural v i I I a g e s
where 80 per cent of the people
live.

The plan, outlined in the first
budget of Prime Minister Mo-
rarji Desai's three - month - old
government, is aimed at stimu-
lating food production, rural
employment and development of
the nation's village industries.
FINANCE MINISTER H. M.

Patel told parliament the budget
is designed to bring India's 625
million people "bread and lib-
erty" as the Janata party
pledged in its successful cam-
paign to oust former Prime Min-
ister Indira Gandhi's Congress
party in the March elections.
"It is our firm belief that the
open society we cherish will re-
main insecure unless we can
move forward with courage and
sincerity to banish poverty, ig-
norance and disease from this

said.
"We seek tot accel.I Le the
pace of economic p es and
to distribute its fraits equitably
in a framework of democracy
and individual freedom," the
finance minister told the crawd-
ed parliamest chamber.
THE NEW BUDGET cames at
a time when international econo-
mists see the Indian economy as
suffering from sluggish growth,
rising prices and a downtar in
food production from a year's
record 120-million-ton grain har-
vest.
At the same time, they add,
India's industrial prodaction,
trade picture and fsreigs ex-
change reserves have rarely
been stronger.
The budget calls for a total
expenditure of $18.3 billion, with

Marvella Bay
I have had breast cancer and a
mastectomy to cure it. But it
didn't change my life-or my
femininity. Of course, right
after surgery, was discour-
aged. But then I received a
visit from an American Can-
cez Society volunteer. She
gave me a ball and a rope.
And she showed me how to
use them to strengthen my
arm. She gave-me informa-
tion about breast forms and
how to fit my clothes. Then
she told me that she, too, had
had a mastectomy. That's

when she gave me faith. I
knew then, if other women
could do it, so could I. I did.
If you know a cancer pa-
tient who needs help, call
your Unit of the American
Cancer Society. We can give
people information and
counseling on all kinds of
cancer. We can also give them
hope. I know. Because I had
cancer and lived.
