From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON-The trust fund that provides the money
for Social Security retirement checks will be depleted by
early 1983 and could be $63.5 billion in the red by 1986, the
Congressional Budget Office said yesterday.
Unless Congress makes changes in the program, the deficit
could grow to $128.9 billion by the start of the 1990 fiscal year,
the arm of Congress told a House subcommittee on Social
Security.
SOME 36 MILLION Americans receive benefits from the
Social Security system, making it the single largest program
in the federal government. The system, made up of three
trust funds, will pay out $138 billion this year to retired and
disabled workers and their families.
Two of the trust funds, Disability Insurance and Hospital
Insurance, are operating in the black. The other, the Old Age
and Survisors Insurance, is nearing depletion.
The House subcommittee, chaired by Rep. J. Pickle (D-
Tex.) is hearing testimony on ways in which Congress can
rescue the system.

Lawmakers must choose among cutting benefits and
restricting eligibility, raising taxes or delaying the
retirement age. Another short-term solution is to allow the
better-heeled disability and Medicare funds-financed by the
same payroll tax covering retirement-to lend money to the
poorer program.
IN ADDITION TO running out of money by 1983, experts
also agree that system faces a potentially more worrisome
problem next century because of the shrinking ratio of
workers paying into the system, to retirees drawing from it.
The prevailing congressional mood of fiscal restraint came
to the fore quickly as the chairman of the congressionally
commissioned study panel recommended higher income
taxes, delayed retirement, and interfund borrowing.
The chairman, Milton Gwirtzman, was told sternly by
several subcommittee members that Congress will not go for
tax increases and is even more opposed to additional
borrowing.

In a statement released yesterday,
University President Harold Shapiro
said: "Ralph Banfield for years was the
primary administrator here respon-

colleges, and the University's military

turned to him for advice in those areas.
He had a courteous word for everyone,
and that warmth was reciprocated by
others to him.
Final funeral arrangements and
cause of death have not been released.

POPE JOHN PAUL II waves to onlookers on the first leg of a 12-day "peace
mission" to the far East. In the Philippines yesterday, the Pope made his
strongest statement to date, telling President Ferdinand Marcos that gover-
nments must safeguard human rights.
Manila police keep
youth from-- Pope

By BETH ALLEN
The Michigan Student Assembly last
night passed a resolution asking the
University Regents to reject an official
recommendation that the University
invest in defense industries.
If the Regents were to follow the
recommendation, presented by the Of-
fice of Financial Affairs, the University
would invest in five major defense con-
tractors.
ACCORDING TO THE report, the
defense industry "appears to be. en-
tering a period of dynamic growth
which should provide opportunties for
above-average returns from invest-
ments in selected companies." The
report goes on to suggest that the
University capitalize on the industry's
projected growth through large in-
vestments.
The resolution passed= by MSA urges
the Regents to reject the recommen-
dations on moral and economic groun-
ds. The resolution also states that MSA
"encourages the Regents to invest in
the industries of the state of Michigan
so as to be advantageous to the
Michigan economy in the face of im-
pending University budget cuts."
THE RESOLUTION contends that
investment in home-state industrie$
could help stimulate Michigan's
sagging economy which, in turn, might
improve state financial support of the
University.
Although all the MSA members
agreed that the proposed investments
would be morally objectionable, some
members voiced reservations about the
economic references in the resolution.
MSA Business School representative
Seth Moldoff said it "wouldn't make
sense to limit the University to invest-
ments in Michigan-based industries if
there aren't that many.
The resolution was brought to the
Assembly floor by MSA Vice-President
for Legislative Relations Jon Fieger,
who will present it to the Regents
during their meeting tomorrow.
The five companies named in the
University recommendation are
Support the
March of Dimes
WlBIRTH DEFECTS FOUNDATION

General Dynamics Corp., McDonnell-
Douglas Corp., Northrop Corp., all of
which are aerospace companies, San-
der Associates Inc., and Loral Corp.,
both of which are electronics com-
panies.

are now," he said, "You can't get blood
out of a stone."
Other OCCgoals included greater job
security and freedom from sexual and
racial discrimination.
Shortly before the election was
scheduled to take place the University's
personnel office released a letter to
clericals aimed at answering some
questions they may have had regarding
the election. In that letter the Univer-
sity pointed out that other union mem-
bers who work for the University
currently pay up to $277 a year in union
dues.
The OCC retaliated by issuing a
statement which said University em-
ployees who belong to unions receive
higher wages, and that under the OCC's
proposed by-laws clericals would pay
only an average of $125 in union dues at
their current rate of pay.

off the stage-stopping for a moment
near the youth, who was being held by
security guards, as if he wished to say
something.
A STUDENT leader onstage im-
mediately urged the students to start
singing and the music of thousands of
young voices filled the air as the pontiff
got into an open-top limousine and stood
waving for a few moments before
leaving the campus. The song was a
traditional Filipino love song, "Dahil sa
Iyo" which means "Because of You."
Minutes afterward, a commentator
on national Television said: "There
were no evil intentions coming from the
young man ... A sudden twist of events,
but there was no harm inflicted on the
Pope."
HE ADDED: "There were no ulterior
motives harbored by that young man.
He probably just wanted to get as near
to the pope as possible and get his
blessing."
There was no official comment
available immediately either from
police or Vatican officials.
IN 1970, when Pope Paul VI was
beginning the first papal visit to the
Philippines, a knife-wielding Bolivian
painter named Benjamin Mendoza,
disguised as a clergyman, tried to stab
him.
In other developments, John Paul
lifted from obscurity today a 17th cen-
tury Filipino fugitive from justice,
giving this Asian bastion of Christianity

its first candidate for sainthood.
In a ceremony being held outside
Europe for the first time in the history
of the Roman Catholic Church, John
Paul will beatify Lorenzo Ruiz and 15
other men and women who were tor-
tured and marched to the gallows by a
Japanese warlord for refusing to
renounce their faith 350 years ago.
Beatification is the next-to-last step to
sainthood, which is achieved by
canonization.
Until last year few of the 42 million
Filipino Catholics, long clamoring for a
saint of their own, had heard of Ruiz,
Even now, little is known about him.
HE WAS THE SON of a Chinese
father and a Filipino mother and
worked as a servant, altar boy and
caligrapher for Dominican priests in
Manila. He also was wanted by the
Spanish colonial government for an
alleged crime some historians say may
have been murder.
"That is not material," says the Rev.
Fidel Villaroel, a Spanish Dominican
priest who has lived in the Philippines
for 20 years. "What really counts is the
manner in which he gave his life to the
Lord."
The 52-year-old priest dug up three
centuries of historical records and
compiled them into a 700-page book of
evidence to support the martyrdom of
Ruiz and the 15 others: nine Japanese,
four Spaniards, an Italian, and a Fren-
chman executed in Nagasaki, Japan
between 1633 and 1637.
