THE NEXT VIETNAM?
WASHINGTON (AP)- Budget
Director bavid Stockman conceded
yesterday that some states may come
out losers once President Reagan's
"new federalism" is in place.
As he carried the Reagan plan to
Congress for the first time, Stockman
also ran into criticism over the admim-
nistration's economics and his own
SEN. JOHN Glenn (D-Ohio) accused
Stockman of deliberately misleading
Congress last year and questioned if he
is now giving reliable figures.
"Trust is the most important element
in government," Glenn said. "Mr.
Stockman, we trusted you last year.
The public trusted you. And we were.
deceived, deliberately deceived."
Stockman's personal credibility has
been questioned since last fall, when he
was quoted in a magazine article as
having expressed doubts about the
Reagan economic plan at the same
time he was publicly backing it.
UNDER SHARP questioning from
Democratic members of the Senate
Governmental Affairs Committee,
Stockman said the administration
makes no promise that in the long run,
every state will be able to pay for the
programs Reagan wants to transfer.
The Reagan plan would turn more
than 40 federal programs over to the
states. It would also provide a tem-
porary federal trust fund to help them
with the costs and would relieve states
of their share of Medicaid payments.
In 1987, the fund would begin to
disappear and the federal government
would stop collecting excise taxes,
which states could then impose. But the
bulk of the fund would come from taxes
on petroleum, which most states could
not levy on their own.
While acknowledging differences
among states in tax potential and
program costs, Stockman testified that
"these individual differences will be
evened out through the trust fund
allocation formula, so that, for the
program as a whole, each state will
come out essentially even."

according to Ann Arbor Police Chief
WASHINGTON (AP) - Escalating
his battle with Congress, Interior
Secretary James Watt has barred
meetings brtween department officials
and aides 'of congressional oversight
Rep. John Seiberline (D-Ohio)
released letters from Watt and Interior
Undersecretary Donald Hodel yester-
day outlining the policy. Seiberling
called it "alarming and unpreceden-
ted" because it denies Congress acces
to needed information.
SEIBERLINGG, chairman of the
House Interior subcommittee on public
lands and national parks, noted that the
department already has refused to con-
duct briefings for his panel's staff to
prepare for hearings.
Such meetings traditionally are held
to collect facts and refine points at
issue. The congressional staff then
briefs members of Congress, often to
the extent of drafting questions for the
congressmen to ask.
In his hand-written letter to
Seiberling, Watt said "needless conflict
will arise" if the staff meetings are
"MY WASHINGTON experiences
have convinced me that the public in-
terest and members of Congress are
better served if most, if not all,
inquiries and oversight investigations
are carried out in formal, on-the-record
hearings," Watt told the chairman.
The department's letters said that its
staff would testify at congressional
hearings, would answer written queries
from congressmen and would meet
with members of Congress.
Seiberling said the policy "appears to
be a deliberate atempt to thwart our
subcommittee's efforts to conduct ef-
fective oversight by denying us a major
means of gaining access to the infor-

According to Muth, however, the
precedent for such action on a state
level was set in the 1930s, when the
Supreme Court ruled that a contract
can be abolished if:

" the remedy is temporary, and
