REA GAN ASKS FOR ADDED WELFARE RED UC TIONS
House committee approves cuts
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press international reports

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON-The House Budget Committee
will approve more than half the specific cuts
President Reagan wants, but will put its own stamp
on the rest, the panel's chairman said yesterday.
Rep. James R. Jones (D-Okla.) told reporters there
is a mood in the House for "deep, substantial cuts"
and that the overall total of reductions the president
is seeking "will be substantially achieved."
JONES MADE his comments as he announced a
package of proposals he said is aimed at eliminating
government waste and inefficiency, at a savings of $4
billion in 1982 and a total of $10 billion over the next
Jones said congressional hearings and reports
from the General Accounting Office, the auditing
arm of Congress, had painted "an appalling picture
of mismanagement, lack of management, indifferen-
ce and outright abuse of public trust."
The government, he said, is losing billions of
dollars on uncollected debts, unresolved audit fin-
dings and inefficient and outdated computers.
IN OTHER BUDGET concerns, President Reagan
will propose ending welfare payments to pregnant
women not in their final trimester because some
program recipients have used the money to finance
abortions, officials said yesterday.
The administration also plans to eliminate a
requirement that states not cut welfare spending for
the aged, blind and disabled, they said.
The proposed changes are not major items, the of-
ficials said, and characterized them as "more policy
than savings oriented."
PRESENTLY, 34 states provide welfare payments
to pregnant women under the Aid to Families with
Dependent Children program. Two states limit the
special payments to the last trimester, and three
others allow them only from the second trimester.
The administration will introduce a proposal to
prohibit states from making welfare payments to
pregnant women with no other children, except in the
last three months of pregnancy.
LINDA MCMAHON, associate commissioner for
the Office of Family Assistance, said the change is
expected to save between $1.5 million and $3.5
She said the medical and nutritional needs of poor
pregnant women are covered by existing government
programs-such as food stamps, maternal and child
health programs and women-infant-children food
"In fact, there are other programs available," she
said. "We feel it is in the last trimester that the
woman is least likely to work. Also, that is the time
she is going to have more expenses.''
WASHINGTON (UPI)-The Reagan
administration's two chief Cabinet of-
ficers yesterday headed for con-
sultations with U.S. allies in Europe
and the Middle East, amid increased
concern about a possible Soviet inter-
vention in Poland.
Secretary of State Alexander Haig
and Defense Secretary Caspar Wein-
berger said they received general
guidelines and instructions from
President Reagan at brief meetings in
Reagan's room at George Washington
University Medical Center before
taking off last night.
HAIG HEADED for Egypt on the first
stop of a Middle Eastern tour that will
take him to Israel, Jordan, Saudi
Arabia, and Egypt in efforts to forge a
loose alliance with the aim of halting
Soviet advances into the oil region.
The former NATO commander may
press Egypt for U.S. rights to use its
base at Ras Banas on the Red Sea
coast. The administration has asked
Congress for $106 million next year for
an Army and Air Force buildup of the
In both Egypt and Israel, Haig is
likely to discuss the creation of a
largely American peace-keeping force
to step into the eastern third of Sinai
once the Israelis pull out in April 1982
under terms of the Egyptian-Israeli
Afterward, he will travel to Madrid,
London, Paris, Bonn, and Rome, and
the arduous trip is expected to be the
first real test ofwhether his credibility
and effectiveness have survived his in-
ternal feuds with White House staff
State Department officials said the
priniepal aim of Haig's tour is to show,
the Reagan administration is alert to
the dangers posed to the Middle East by
the Soviet Union-particularly since its
invasion of Afghanistan.
Weinberger will come into more
direct contact with the situation in
Poland during his three-nation week-
long trip to Europe. The centerpiece
will be a two-day ministerial meeting of
the NATO Nuclear Planning Group
opening Tuesday in Bonn.

WARSAW, Poland-During a round of face-to-face meetings, Polish
workers sharply criticized Communist Party chief Stanislaw Kania and
other officials for a lack of leadership, information, and food, the Polish
press reported yesterday.
The Soviet Union meanwhile stepped up its media attacks on the indepen-
dent union Solidarity and intensified its criticism of the Polish Communist
Party. Warsaw Pact troop maneuvers in and around Poland continued and
the U.S. State Department in Washington said the Soviet bloc's forces had
the capability of undertaking a military intervention at any time.
State Department spokesman William Dyess, signalling a new level of
administration concern, said the situation now is "perhaps more serious
than it was last December when the United States was fearful of a Soviet in-
tervention in Poland.
News reports may affect
Atlanta child slayings
ATLANTA-News reports of evidence in Atlanta's murdered children
case may be prompting a killer to strip his victims and dump them in a river
to confuse investigators, a state official said yesterday.
Georgia Crime Lab Director Larry Howard said recent reports that
similar fibers had been found in the clothing of some of the victims may
hamper the investigation of the unsolved slayings of 22 young blacks.
"The release of information by the news media has altered the method of
operation of the suspect in order to minimize the presence of physical
evidence," Howard said. "And, that will cause us trouble later," he added.
Howard said the best way to minimize physical evidence is to take off the
victim's clothes and put the body where physical evidence will wash away.
Information about the fibers was first made public by investigative repor-
ters for Atlanta newspapers and television stations.
Thai leader ends coup
BANGKOK, Thailand-Prime Minister Prem Tinsulanonda urged the
Thai people yesterday to forget this week's military coup and return to work
after his forces put down the revolt that left two dead, the first fatalities in 30
years of traditionally bloodless Bangkok uprisings.
Prem denounced the coup in a statement from Korat, the northeastern
military stronghold, where Premier King Bhumipol Adulyadej, Queen
Sirikit, and the rest of the popular royal family took refuge.
The leader of the rebellion, Gen. Sant Chitpatima, was reported by
military sources to have fled by helicopter to Burma, and all his top aides
either gave up or were captured.
The coup, which began early Wednesday, was crushed almost without
resistance in less than three hours yesterday, when Prem sent thousands of
troops rolling into Bangkok.
King commemoration opens
with civil rights march
MEMPHIS-Tomorrow marks the 13th anniversary of the assassination of
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., an event being commemorated this year with a
new nationwide drive to preserve the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
The drive opens Sunday in Selma, Ala., with a reenactment of the start of
the famed civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery, the effort credited
with getting the Voting Rights Act on the books. The legislation is due to ex-
pire next year.
A "national crisis of violence" prompted Coretta Scott King, widow of the
civil rights leader, to break tradition and schedule a news conference
tomorrow at her husband's gravesite in Atlanta.
King, who prefers to speak out on her husband's birthday, decided to break
tradition this year, because of recent violence against blacks, such as the
Atlanta child slayings.
stalled in second week
The strike by 160,000 soft-coal miners in West Virginia, Kentucky, and
Ohio entered its second week yesterday amid reports of scattered violence.
There was no word when negotiations between the United Mine Workers
and the Bituminous Coal Operators Association would resume. Following
this week's 2-to-1 contract rejection vote, the mine operators said they had
no plans to resume talks.
UMW President Sam Church, Jr. was in seclusion yesterday, and miners
spokesman Eldon Callen said he was unaware of any contact between Chur-
ch and West Virginia Gov. Jay Rockefeller, who was attempting to get both
sides back to the bargaining table.
Rockefeller, concerned a long strike would cost his state millions of
dollars, took similar action during the 111-day walkout in 1977-78.
March car sales up
DETROIT-Domestic car sales in March surged 7.3 percent above the
same month last year despite a post-rebate sag at the end of the month, en-
ding the industry's two-year string of depressed monthly sales reports.
It was the first time since February of 1979 that domestic car sales in any
month exceeded the same month in the previous year.
Industry reports yesterday showed U.S. automakers, aided most of the
month by cash rebates to customers, sold 719,044 cars in March, up 7.3 per-
cent from 670,146 in March of 1980.

WASHINGTON (AP)-The Reagan
administration has decided to eliminate
the VISTA program of volunteer ser-
vice to the poor by the end of fiscal 1983,
knowledgeable sources said yesterday.
Employees of VISTA and its parent
agency, ACTION, were notified of the
decision yesterday afternoon in a
memo from Dana Rodgers, ACTION's
Thomas Pauken, President Reagan's
nominee for director of ACTION, told
the Senate only last week that no
decision had been made about VISTA's
future and that he expected to review
its work in detail after taking office.
HE ACKNOWLEDGED, however,
that the Office of Management and
Budget had recommended dismantling
VISTA, the acronym for Volunteers
in Service to America, was formed in
1964 during the Johnson ad-
ministration's "war on poverty." Pat-
terned after the Peace Corps, the
program has dispatched a total of 70,000
volunteers to impoverished com-
munities to organize job programs,
housing improvements, credit unions,
crafts cooperatives, and similar ven-
VISTA HAD 4,800 volunteers serving
2,000 communitites as of last Septem-
ber, but budget cuts already are forcing
a reduction to 2,725 in 1,400 com-
munities by September 30. Volunteers
are paid a stipend averaging $375 per
month for living expenses and they are
forbidden to take other jobs.
The administration had proposed
trimming $1.7 million from VISTA's
current $34 million budget and cutting
the level to $20.7 million in fiscal 1982.
Yesterday, agency officials were told
that the administration will trim the
budget still further-to $10 million-for
fiscal 1983 and that money will be used
only to phase out the program, said
sources who requested anonymity
because the administration has made
no official announcement of the plans.
