WASHINGTON (UPI)-The Reagan administration has
encountered little real resistance so far in its proposals to
dismantle most of the massive social programs spawned
during the days of Lyndon Johnson's Great Society.
Budget Director David Stockman's three-ring, loose-leaf
"black book" of proposed cuts touches almost every aspect
of life-from the arts and humanities to the mail and rails.
YET EVEN THOUGH the book's contents began leaking to
the press 10 days ago, most liberals are waiting until Wed-
nesday-when President Reagan announces his economic
recovery plan-before marshaling their opposition.
Have they faced the cold reality that the days of big gover-
nment spending are over for a while?
The new conservative Congress is expected to go along
with most of the budget cuts.
REPORTEDLY, THE CUTS include a phase-out of the
government's public service jobs program, reduction of the
extended unemployment benefits program, and cuts in
But sources say those stringent measures will be softened
for some by a proposed 30 percent cut in personal income tax
rates, spread out over three years, and accelerated
depreciation writeoffs for business.
From the very start of his new administration, Reagan has
gone to extraordinary lengths to enlist followers for his
Even before Reagan has fired his first shot, supporters of
agencies, programs, and areas that will suffer from the
planned $50 billion in budget cuts began building their defen-

Leak forces balloonists
to land i4n 1India plains
NEW DELHI, India (UPI)-Two
Americans set on making Jules Verne's
vision come true landed in India
yesterday when the balloon they hoped
to take around the world dipped too low
to assure safe passage over the mighty
peaks of the Himalayas.
Although their hopes of circling the
earth non-stop were dashed, officials
who spoke with the adventurers said
they had not yet decided whether to call
off their trip or continue.
AFTER TRAVELING almost 2,850
miles in three days, Maxie Anderson
and Donald Ida landed the "Jules Ver-
ne," their slowly leaking helium-filled
ballon in the plains of northern India,
about 60 miles northwest of New Delhi.
The flat terrain where they landed
leads to the foothills of the Himalayas,
the world's highest peaks.
Anderson, 46, of Albuquerque, N.M.,
and Ida, 47, of Boulder, Colo., had
hoped not only to circle the globe in
their balloon, but to shave 70 days off
the fictional record set by Phileas
Fogg, the hero of Verne's classic
"Around the World in 80 Days."
BUT IT WAS not clear whether they
would continue their attempt to float
around the world or call it quits after
passing over five countries, and
through five time zones and missing
Iranian airspace by a hairsbreadth.
"Every balloon landing is tricky,"
said the president of the Indian
Balloonist Club. "But if it was in good
shape, they may decide to try over. It is
Ida and Anderson took off Thursday
from Luxor, Egypt, hoping to fly 20,000
miles around the world in eight to 10 * 9:30
AT THAT TIME, their only fear was
that they would drift into Iranian air
space and be shot down.
But the giant silver balloon named af-
ter Verne sprung a leak over the deser- Richard Dreyf Amy Irvin

When it was last spotted by a LOSANG LESTIMES 8:0

Army doctors investigate
building to find causes of
miscarriages, birth defects
MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - Army doc-
tors are investigating a building in a
large military-industrial complex
where women employees have reported,
a high number of birth defects and
miscarriages, authorities said yester-
Ten women have suffered
miscarriages and four others gave bir-
th to babies ;with birth defects in the
past 18 months,said one of the women
employees, who asked that her name
not be used.
JHE ARMY SAID no connection has
been made between the buildings and
the birth problems.
All of the women worked in a building
housing the regional office of the
Defense Contract Administration Ser-
vices, located between Dobbins Air
Force Base and Lockheed-Georgia Co.
The birth defects included hernias,
eye defects, and spinal defects said the
woman involved in the problem. One of
the four babies died, she said.
DR. RICHARD TEZAK of the Army
Environmental Hygiene Agency was
called in by the defense agency to check
the building and interview the women,
said Jim Markiewicz, a spokesman for
the Army's Health Services Command.
Tezak found no connection between
the building and the birth problems,
Markeiwicz said, although he has not
yet filed his report.
"There was no apparent problem in
the workenvironment that would relate
to the alleged abnormalities,"
Markiewicz said in a telephone inter-
view from his San Antonio office.
TEZAK DECLINED to be inter-
A spokesman for the national Centers
for Disease Control in Atlanta said it
was not unusual that no connection was
"Those cluster studies are hard to
do," said spokesman Don Berreth.
"Even at Love Canal, there are no good
studies showing those people were ad-
versely affected. It was a horrendous
place to live but there are no studies
saying why those people were har-
THE CDC WAS not involved in the
Marietta study, Berreth said.
Addison Glover, regional deputy of
the agency, said he would wait to see
Tezak's report before commenting on
the findings. He said it would take up to
three months to be completed.
Glover said 550 people work in the
building, which also houses the Defense
Contract Audit Agency and a Selective
Service office. He could not say how
many are women.
