LANSING (UPI)- Acting with less
than five hours left in the fiscal year,
* legislators yesterday approved Gov.
William Milliken's executive budget
cutting -order enabling the state to
cover a $135 million year-end deficit.
Under the order, the University will
absorb a cut in state appropriations of
$4 million rather than the previously
anticipated $6 million.
THE 17-1 VOTE by the House Ap-
* propriations Committee and 7-2 ballot
by its Senate counterpart capped a day
marked by a bitter partisan battle
which help up action on the document
until early evening.
The vote, which came just four and a
half hours before a midnight deadline,
put the final pieces into place for the
balanced budget required by state Con-
stitution at the end of the fiscal year.
HAD THE BUDGET not been balan-
ced, the state would not have been able
to smake $500 million in revenue
sharing, school aid and other paymen-

ts. State government would have even-
tually ground to a halt.
Milliken's order was his second at-
tempt to cover the deficit. Lawmakers
two weeks ago rejected his first
proposal because of portions cutting $51
million from the school aid, college and
university and community college
House Democrats, lead by Speaker
Bobby Crim, held up a measure raiding
a railroad fund to help balance the
budget because of Milliken's refusal to
slash funds for the Michigan State
University Agricultural Extension
Crim called the governor's refusal to
cut the MSU money "just ridiculous"
adding he could not justify protecting
agriculture when areas like mental
health, education and social services
were being slashed.
Republican lawmakers, however,
argued the state can ill afford to cut
funds that aid one of Michigan's few
healthy industries.

BRIGHTON, England (AP) - The
opposition Labor Party voted yesterday
for unilateral nuclear disarmament,
but rejected a proposal that Britain quit
Labor defense spokesman Brynmor
John, a moderate on the nuclear disar-
mament issue, said, "It's going to be a
hard vote to live with."
resolution carried by 4.59 million votes
to 2.31 million. Votes at Labor con-
ferences are counted in millions in ac-
cordance with the membership that
trade union leaders represent.
The attempt by radicals to commit a
Labor government to withdrawing
from NATO and expelling the ap-
proximately 25,000 U.S. military per-
sonnel stationed in Britain was
defeated by 5.2 million votes to 1.6
Although the disarmament resolution
failed to achieve the two-thirds
majority required to make conference
votes automatically part of Labor's
campaign platform, the vote marked
the party's most unequivocal stance yet
for a policy that would gravely affect
Britain's role in NATO and reverse the
Conservative government's decision to
accept U.S. nuclear Cruise missiles.
IT WAS THE second successive year
that a Labor Party's annual conference
voted for unilateral disarmament, and
Support the
March of Dimes

in the view of many observers, any at-
tempt to drop it from Labor's next elec-
tion manifesto would risk a serious par,
ty split.
Unilateral nuclear disarmament
would mean scrapping Britain's
Polaris nuclear submarines, banning
the Cruise missiles which Mrs. That
cher has agreed to accept, and can+
celing her controversial decision to buy
the U.S. Trident missile system.
Cruise and Pershing 11 medium=
range missiles are due to be deployed in
five West European countries begin=
ning in 1983 in response to the Soviet
buildup of medium-range strategic
weapons targeted at Western Europe.'
"WE CAN stay in NATO and work out
a new relationship," said Joan Leston,
a member of the party's policy forming
National Executive Committee. She
noted that Norway, Denmark; and
Canada are NATO members who reject
nuclear weapons on their soil.

Yesterday was the last day students were allowed to drop or add classes
without additional fees, instructor's permission, or ugly "W"s blemishing

at registration yesterday. But for most students, the joys of CRISP are over
until registration for winter term.

W WASHINGTON (UPI) - President
d Lyndon.Johnson's War on Poverty
,e died yesterday, and Democratic
congressmen charged that in its place
the Reagan administration has moun-
ted a war against the poor.
"I would like to assure the subcom-
mittee the 'Comrnluity Services Ad-
ministration is prepared to shut its
doors at close'of-business today,"-direc-
tor Dwight Ink told the House
Education and Labor subcommittee on
human resources.
emotionally to Ink's largely technical
and managerial testimony.
The War on Poverty was the corner-
stone of Johnson's Great Society. The
already slimmed-down agency and its
predecessor, the Office of Economic
Opportunity, providedegrants to the
states to help local community action


The funding is being sliced from $521
million for 1981 to about $250 million for
the new fiscal year.
REP. PAT Williams, (D-Mont.), said
''Americans held their heads highest"
when John Kennedy and Lyndon John-
son said the nation could try to end
poverty, disease, despair and
"Today is the day that history is'
going to record as the day when an
American president sounded a
retreat," Williams said.
"'The legislative actions Congress
has been asked to take, and for the most
part agreed to take, will demonstrate
clearly in the next year or so we have
indeed sounded a retreat inthe waraon
poverty and have begun a war on the
poor," he said.
