news" that they were paying cash
awards for writing. "The fact that they
were giving out money meant that
unlike your mother and friends, they
could tell what was good work," he
joked.,
"Having seen that a play was
something other than learning how to
speak with an English accent, but that
it was sweat and hunger, I was
hooked," said Miller of his first ex-
perience as a playwright.
"When I set about writing . . . I felt
light years away from
professionalism," he said. The audien-
ce laughed when he added, "My only
hope was that other Hopwood entries
would be worse."
"I had already earned more from my
first play than I had during three years
as a shipping clerk," said Miller of his
first Hopwood award. "Needless to say
the contrast was not lost to my mind."
But joking aside, Miller talked of the
idea held by many Americans that
plays are "for fun," and that audiences
do not want to pay $40 to see something
with a serious message. He said the
current trend has been that "nothing
but musicals originate on Broadway."
Miller also emphasized that despite
the notion that theatre abroad is

superior to that of the United States,
American drama has traditionally been
as good as, or better than, European
drama.
"The American writer must write for
his own people," said Miller. "The
writing of plays is not a profession, but
a calling to be practiced for the love of
it, or not at all."
The playwright winced a bit as Hop-
wood Committee Chairman and
English Prof. John Aldrige announced
to the audience of more than 800 per-
sons, "All of you are invited to come up
to the 4th floor (of the Rackham
building) and meet Mr. Miller."
Yesterday's ceremony was part of a
week-long 50th anniversary Hopwood
Festival planned by the Hopwood
committee.
Each year students' entries, submit-
ted under pen-names, are judged by
experts who read them and then rank
the entries. The judges' rankings and
comments are then reviewed by the
eleven-member Hopwood Committee
who decides which entries will receive
awards. The committee is comprised of
University English, Journalism, and
Humanities professors.

Reagan budget rejected

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON-In a surprising
{ love, the Senate Budget Committee
rejected President Reagan's package
of spending and tax reductions yester-
lay after adding it up and finding it
didn't achieve the goal of a balanced
budget by 1984.
By a 12-8 vote the Republican-
controlled panel, which had been en-
dorsing the various parts of the plan,
rejected the overall package.
" Sen. William Armstrong of Colorado,
one of the Republicans who joined the
minority of Democrats in voting again-
st the program, said the president's
,.package was "an unpolished diamond"
that needs more work.
AFTER THE panel had endorsed
Reagan's call for a three-year, 30 per-
cent cut in individual taxes and a host of
reductions throughout government, the
committee staff concluded that there
still would be a budget deficit of $53.8
billion next year and a deficit of $44.7
billion in 1984, the year Reagan has
promised a balanced budget.

The Reagan administration had
forecast only a $45 billion deficit in 1982.
Earlier yesterday, the congressional
budget committees had gone their
separate ways, with Senate
Republicans remaining behind Reagan
and House Democrats voting down the
line for their party's alternative spen-
ding plan for 1982.
THE CHAIRMAN of the House tax-
writing panel yesterday outlined an
alternative to Reagan's tax cut plan
that calls for a smaller reduction but is
targeted to help lower and middle-in-
come Americans.
The proposal from Ways and Means
Chairman Dan Rostenkowski (D-Ill.) is
the latest in a series underlining the dif-
ference in economic approach between
the Democratic-controlled House and
the Reagan administration.
Rostenkowski, in a speech to the
Chicago Association of Commerceand
Industry, called for a one-yeaA, 34
billion tax cut for businesses and in-
dividuals in fiscal 1982.
THE ILLINOIS congressman said his

proposal "preserves the spirit of the
president's tax plan" by encouraging
savings, investment and increased
productivity but takes a different ap-
proach in providing tax relief.
The package would help middle and
lower-income taxpayers through rate
reductions, larger standard deductions,
and modification of the, so-called
marriage penalty. It proposed tax in-
centives for increased personal savings
and offered guidelines for a business
tax cut.
SENATE FINANCE Committee
Chairman Bob Dole (R-Kan.) called
Rostenkowski's proposal "a construc-
tive addition to the tax cut dialogue"
but said the nation needs more than a
one-year "shot in the arm" tax cut.
Treasury Secretary Donald Regan,
who met with the president yesterday,
said Reagan thinks Rostenkowski's tax
cut ideas "are good, but he thinks that
Tbis pjn ised.
"I see no need for compromise with
Democrats now," Regan said. "Ab-
solutely not. No."

Baxter pursues AT&T suit

WASHINGTON (AP) - Rejecting a
second appeal from the Defense Depar-
tment to go easy on the government's
suit against American .Telephone &
Telegraph Co., the nation's new chief
antitrust enforcer promised yesterday
to prosecute the case "to the eyeballs"
and said he could break up the com-
munications giant without endangering
national defense.
At his first news conference since
taking over the Justice Department's
a antitrust division, Assistant Attorney
General William Baxter said, "I do not
intend to fold up my tent and go away
simply because the Department of
Defense is concerned. It is a sound case
and I intend to litigate it to the
eyeballs."
IN A LETTER to the Justice Depar-
ment earlier this year, Defense
Secretary Caspar Weinberger said the
government's suit to break up AT&T
-'could weaken a communications net-
' work that controls nuclear weapons.
Weinberger described the Defense
Department's worries March 23 in
"closed Senate testimony which was
released Wednesday.
Baxter disclosed that he had received

a second letter Wednesday from
Deputy Defense Secretary Frank
Carlucci, who wrote, "Because 'the
American Telephone & Telegraph net-
work is the most important com-
munications net we have to serve our
strategic systems within the United

States, severe problems will confront
the Department of Defense if this net-
work is broken up."
CARLUCCI specifically asked Baxter
to dismiss the AT&T suit now being
tried in U.S. District Court here.
