(Continued from Pageli)
Numerous insurgents in small
villages could grow stronger and bolder
and gain support in the cities-possibly
picking up communist support. Then,'
said Singer, it would be conceivable
that Jose Lopez Portillo's successor, or
even the current president of Mexico
himself, could ask for American '
assistance to save his government.
* Southern Africa: Singer said he is
not excited about" the Soviet presence
in Southern Africa. Soviet conventional'
forces will have little long-range effect
on the Third World, he argued. "To
know the Russians is to ~distrust
them-to have them as military ad-
visors is to reduce their attrac-
tiveness," he said.
9 Southeast Asia: If the Chinese were '
to get involved more heavily in Cam-
bodia and Laos, said Singer, it could
prompt the Soviets to strike at China.

t policies
Singer said he believes many people in
the Soviet Union would favor a preem-
ptive strike on China.
" Persian Gulf : Perhaps surprisingly,
Singer does not perceive the Persian
Gulf area to be a hot point. A Soviet
military thrust into the region is "very
improbable," said Singer, because "the
military resistance to them would be in-
timidating."
Singer said there is potential for a
nuclear war in m any of these areas,
and that war, if it occurs, will be an all-
out nuclear exchange.
"A limited nuclear war is so highly
improbable that it is downright
irresponsible to build any kind of
limited nuclear war scenario into our
military strategy," Singer said, and
added that both the United States and
the Soviet Union have a strong com-
mitment to fighting and winning a
nuclear war.
"EACH SIDE has persuaded the
hawkish element on the other side that
they might-under certain con-
ditions-strike first," which provides
legitimacy for building the MX and
cruise missiles and upgrading the
minuteman missiles in this country, he
added.
What the United States should do,
said Singer, is to announce a schedule
in' advance: Without waiting for
negotiations with the Soviets, the
United States should tell the world it is
not going to develop the MX or cruise
missiles, and then immediately phase
out the Titan missiles.
Then, two years later, Singer said,
the United States should begin phasing
out the land-based minuteman missiles
at a rate of 20 missiles per year. "If the
Soviets, follow suit we'll increase the
rate," said Singer.

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
Reagan wants pension cuts
WASHINGTON- President Reagan said yesterday that "we're going to
cut all pensions"-including Social Security- paid by the government.
Other officials reported he also wants to eliminate revenue sharing as part of
a new, $16-billion round of budget cuts.
The president told his cabinet the plan requires "blood, sweat and tears
from all of you," according to deputy press secretary Larry Speakes.
The proposed cutbacks for the fiscal year starting next month include a
surprise postponement of cost-of-living increases for Social Security
recipients. The three-month delay in the boost scheduled for next July 1
would save $2.8 billion, as contrasted with a commensurate cutback in
defense spending of $2 billion.
House Democrats, humbled in earlier budget fights vowed to go to the
mat again over the Social Security issue. "We intend to make the president
keep his promises on Social Security," said Speaker Thomas O Neill (d-
Mass.). "We don't intend to let him wreck the system."
Haig defends AWAC sale
WASHINGTON- Secretary of State Alexander Haig told Congress
yesterday that failure to approve an $8.5 billion arms package for Saudi
Arabia would undermine "our security, the security of Israel, and peace it-
self."
Sen. Robert Packwood (R-Ore.) said 51 senators-32 Democrats and 19
Republicans-now co-sponsor a resolution to reject the sale to the Saudis of
sophisticated AWACS radar planes and jetfighters. He said six other
senators also will vote against the sale.
Sen. John Glenn (D-Ohio) said compromise is essential because the ad-
ministration, trying to sooth concerns over the impact of the spy planes on
the security of Israel, plans to send Saudi Arabia "a down-rated, half-way"
AWACS incapable of meeting all combat situations.
Glenn said this arrangement will blind the surveillance capabilities of both
Saudi Arabia and the United States in the event of a major threat by the
Soviet Union to Saudi oil fields.
Glenn proposed a compromise by which the United States would halve the
price of the AWACS fleet in exchange for a joint US-Saudi command. He said 4
a joint AWACS command would "take away everyone's concern" that an all-
Saudi AWACS system would threaten Israeli security.
Dow Jones hits 16-month low
NEW YORK- TheDow Jones industrial average slumped to a 16-month
low yesterday as the stock market yielded to renewed selling pressure.
Trading closed at 840.09, off 11.51.
Analysts said recession fears and concern over the federal budget deficit
helped choke off an early rally attempt'and sent the market to its fourth
consecutive loss.
High-technology glamor stocks suffered some of the worst damage.
Metals issues also tumbled on word of the government's plans to begin
selling silver from its stockpile beginning next month.
'Hippie Monster' lost at sea
BOLINAS, Calif.- Authorities have called off a search for an eccentric
man who paddled out to sea on a surfboard, apparently in search of a dentist.
Andy Fields, 37, nick-named the Hippie Monster, lived in a cave for the
last seven years or so in this costal community about 50 miles north of San
Francisco.
"He wasn't a lovable, romantic person," said roofer Dave Chadwick. "He r
was eccentric, in a grating way. He would walk around screeching and
whooping like a seagull."
Lately, said Chadwick, Fields talked about leaving. He told a friend he
would be leaving soon on his surfboard to hail passing ships in an attempt to
find a dentist to fix his teeth.
Sculptor Joyce Clements said she was looking out her window Sunday:
when she saw Fields paddling out to sea.
"He kept going farther and farther. I couldn't believe it. He got about two
miles out and I couldn't see him any more," said Clements.
She called the Coast Guard, which sent a 41-foot cutter and a helicopter to
search for Fields. His clothes were found on the beach, and a fishing boat
picked up a surfboard four miles out to sea.
