Officials call for
action to save
Social Securi~ty

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON- Social Security will
be unable to pay retirees' and sur-
vivors' benefits on time starting in July
1983 unless Congress takes corrective
action "in the very near future," the
system's trustees said yesterday.
But the trustees, all members of
President Reagan's Cabinet, made no
recommendations for bolstering the
system's sagging Old Age and Sur-
vivors Insurance Trust Fund. They said
they are waiting for Reagan's National
Commission on Social Security Reform
to complete a report due by the end of
the year.
THE TRUSTEES forecast that
beneficiaries will get a 7.6 percent
benefit increase this July based on the
consumer price index. Reagan has op-
posed congressional calls to trim that
The trustees are Treasury Secretary
Donald Regan, Labor Secretary
Raymond Donovan and Health and
Human Services Secretary Richard
Despite benefit cuts enacted in 1981,
"the short-range financial status is
significantly worse than was estimated
last year," the trustees said in their an-
nual report to Congress.

FOR THE seventh straight year, the
combined old age and disability trust
funds paid out more than they took in in
calendar 1981, the trustees said. Those
two funds dropped by $1.9 billion to
$24.5 billion - enough to pay benefits
for only two months - at the end of last
year, they said.
The hospital, or Medicare, trust fund
rose by $5 billion. Consequently, the
three combined funds finished the year
in the black, taking in $178.2 billion in
benefits and medical bills for 36 million
Congress passed a stopgap measure
4 last year to tide the old age fund over
through 1982 by allowing it to borrow
from the healthier disability reserve.
Reagan set up the commission after
withdrawing his own controversial
proposals for cutting early retirement
and other benefits.
Democrats, who forced the ad-
ministration to scuttle proposed benefit
cuts last year, were quick to react.
"I would not want this report to cause
fear in the hearts of those on Social
Security," House Speaker Thomas
O'Neill said. "I have absolute faith and
trust that never in any way will the
program be abated. The government is
committed to it."

Israeli nationalists invade Sinai
YAMIT, Occupied Sinai- A boatload of Israeli nationalists landed on the
beach and punched through a cordon of soldiers yesterday to join thousands
of civilians who were hoping to block the return of the Sinai to Egypt.
The nationalists landed in rubber dinghies and about 25 broke through the
line of unarmed soldiers, said Moshe Hager, the group's leader. Three others
were arrested, along with six anti-withdrawal activists among the hundreds
who greeted the invaders.
The scuffle on the palm-lined beach near the northern Sinai town of Yamit
dramatized the last-ditch battle to halt the evacuation by nationalists who,
put no faith in the peace treaty with Egypt, in which Israel agreed to leave
the Sinai by April 25.
The government ordered all civilians to leave Sinai by yesterday and the>
military declared the occupied area an off-limits military zone at midnight
Wednesday. But it made no effort to dislodge some 2,000 activists who had
evaded roadblocks and squatted" in abandoned homes over the last few mon
Reagan undergoes hospital tests
WASHINGTON- President Reagan underwent hospital tests yesterday"
for a previous inflammation of the urinary tract but told reporters afterwar<
ds, "Everything is perfectly normal."
"I feel great," Reagan said upon his arrival back at the White House after
undergoing about 90 minutes of tests at the National Naval Medical Center in
suburban Bethesda, Md.
Speaking to reporters on the South Lawn at the White House, Reagan said
no medication was prescribed for him and that he did not expect to have to
return to the hospital.
The White House issued a statement that said the results of all tests ad-
ministered to Reagan were normal. "There is no evidence of malignancy
and no further evaluation is anticipated,." the statement added. wi



Salvadoran political parties
unable to resolve deadlock

When a good friend borrows
your carthe tank may, not come back full.
But the trunk does.

SAN SALVADOR- Rightist parties and centrist Christian Democrats
remained deadlocked yesterday on formation of a coalition to lead a
representative assembly and name an interim president.
Jose Napoleon Duarte, president of the ruling junta and a Christian
Democrat, left open the possibility he might step aside.
"I've never personally sought any position. I've always obeyed the dic-
tates of my party ... I will obey any decision my party takes," Duarte told a
news conference yesterday in response to questions.
On Wednesday, Duarte said he planned to remain at the helm and insisted
that his party had to be included in any viable government.
The Reagan administration, which has supported the Christian Democrats
but said before last Sunday's elections it would work with whichever party
won, stepped up pressure against a right-wing government.

Pesticides kill birds in N.Y.
ALBANY, N.Y - Volunteers acted as live scarecrows yesterday to
prevent birds from swooping onto a suburban cornfield where more than
2,000 birds have died after bait "drenched with pesticide."
A band of grain surrounding an unharvested corn crop had been sprinkled
with pesticide, tentatively identified as parathion, officials said. Permits are
required to use parathion against insects.
Workers have cleared away more than 2,000 dead birds since a neighbor
reported seeing birds falling out of trees Tuesday, said Ward Stone, a
wildlife pathologist with the state Department of Environmental Conser-
Conservation workers yesterday afternoon raked dirt over the pesticide,
which had been spread over nine acres on the farm near the village of
Selkirk, a few miles south of Albany.
