House panel approves
WASHINGTON (UPI)- A key House
committee yesterday approved over
Republican objections a $1 billion bill to
create 200,000 public service jobs.
A vote by the full House on the
Democratic-backed measure is expec-
THE ACTION by the House Rules
Committee followed a call by
Democratic leaders for quick
congressional approval of the jobs bill,
which they called "a step in the right
direction" to put unemployed
Americans back to work.
The bill would provide about 203,000
temporary jobs for the unemployed in
repairing and maintaining bridges and
'roads and other public facilities, in-
cluding conservation and energy-
About 140,000 of the jobs are ear-
marked for unemployed adults, with
the remainder for those ages 16 to 21.
THE PROCEDURE approved by the
Rules Committee allows Republicans to
offer just one amendment when the bill
comes up for debate today. Another
vote to send the bill back to committee
also is permitted at the end of debate,
but Democratic leaders appeared con-
fident the House would pass the bill and
send it to the Republican-controlled
A motion by Rep. James Quillen, (R-
Tenn.) to delay the bill was rejected by
the Rules Committee on a party-line
At a news conference earlier in the
day, House Speaker Thomas O'Neill,
(D-Mass) flanked by House
Democratic leader Jim Wright of Texas
and Sen. Edward Kennedy, (D-Mass.)
said in a statement:
"WE GAVE the president his
programlast year ... but we have13
million unemployed, we're not going
to sit back while unemployment goes
higher and higher."
Wright said he expects the bill to pass
in the House, and Kennedy, a co-
sponsor of the bill in the Senate, said he
is "very hopeful" it will pass, the
"This Congress, this administration
cannot turn its back on the unem-
ployed," Kennedy said.
DEMOCRATS decided to seek a
speedy vote this week after the suc-
cessful override of President Reagan's
veto of the $14.2 billion supplemental
Republicans labeled the legislation
an election-season gimmick, and one
GOP congressman suggested it is the
"son of CETA," the scandal-scarred
Comprehensive Employment and
Training Act that expires Sept. 30.
Deputy White House press secretary
Larry Speakes told reporters Reagan
probably opposes the program 'by im-
plication," but indicated the president
would leave strategy on the bill up to
the GOP leadership.
Incumbents sweep in state primaries
By The Associated Press
Two former Democratic governors-Michael
Dukakis of Massachusetts and Rudy Perpich of Min-
nesota-made giant strides toward political
comebacks with primary victories, while the incum-
bent members of Congress up for renomination in 12
states all turned back challengers on the biggest
primary day of the year.
The only incumbent to lose a major race in
Tuesday's voting was Gov. Edward King, who fell to
Dukakis in a reversal of the 1978 Democratic
WISCONSIN voters gave overwhelming endor-
sement to the nuclear freeze idea in the first
statewide vote on the matter. Eight more states and
the District of Columbia will vote on it in November.
The Wisconsin referendum proposal for a mutual
and verifiable "nuclear weapons moratorium and
reduction" won easy approval. With about 99 percent
of the vote counted, 611;835 favored the resolution
while 197,944 opposed it.
Faced with the politically dangerous freeze issue,
the Reagan administration initially indicated its op-
position to the Wisconsin resolution, but then announ-
ced it would take no position because it considered
the wording ambiguous.
THE ELECTION slates are all but complete in the
wake of the primary elections in 12 states and the
District of Columbia on Tuesday. Hawaii holds a
primary on Saturday and New York next week.,
Runoffs are scheduled for Tuesday in Oklahoma,
Sept. 28 in Alabama and Oct. 5 in Florida.
The biggest surprise of the balloting was former
governor Perpich's come-from-behind triumph over
state Attorney General Warren Spannaus.
Spannaus had the endorsement of the Democratic-
Farmer-Labor Party, the backing of former Vice
President Walter Mondale, and more than $1
million in campaign spending.

Miller said the present Legislature
has control over next year's budget and
'any changes wouldhave to be proposed
by the next Legislature which takes of-
fice in January.
UNDER THE governor's order the
state would provide the University with
both June and August payments before
June 30 to make up for the $7.3 million
cut this month.
Although state budget office
spokesman Pat McCarthy agreed that
the problem would arise again next
August, Miller asserted the agreement
is "absolutely not" budget "gim-
mickry," as some skeptical lawmakers
Even if the money is eventually
repayed to the schools, there will be
some cost to the University because it
would have to borrow money for funds
until June. The cost of the interest on
that loan,, however, would be
'minimal," according to Kennedy.
The House Appropriations Committee
voted 17-0 to approve the executive or-
der, and the Senate Appropriations
Committee quickly followed suit with
an 11-0 vote in favor.
The measure is the fourth such cut
adopted this fiscal year, bringing the
total of executive order spending reduc-
tions to $778 million. Full legislative
approval for such executive orders is

Noting the time spent on the South
Africa question four years ago far ex-
ceeded that given to "more vital issues
such as the closing of the geography
department," Roach said considering
investments again "may be a luxury we
can't afford in 1982."
"THERE ARE so many issues that
concern us immediately, vitally,"
Roach continued, "that I'm not looking
for issues to add to the list."
Presently, there is no system for in-
forming the Regents of the investment
issues on which the University votes. It
is the responsibility of the University's
financial officers to cast the Univer-
sity's votes on corporate resolutions.
The administrators always vote with
management, against shareholder
resolutions, because the Regents have
never instructed them to do otherwise,
one investment officer said.
Although the Regents said they
welcomed the community's suggestions
on which issues should be addressed,
they all rejected the idea that a per-
manent committee or similar
mechanism be formed to follow the
issues. Most major universities across
the country have such a mechanism,
according to University President
SEVERAL OF the Regents said that
issues of concern to the community
eventually filter to their attention, but
the nuclear arms race hasn't been a
great issue vet on campus.

may delay Reagan 's projects
WASHINGTON- Republican congressional leaders signaled yesterday
that many of President Reagan's pet legislative projects-including tuition
tax credits and an anti-crime bill-are likely casualties of a push for early
House Republican Leader Robert Michel of Illinois told reporters he doub-
ted there will be time this year to consider social issues, such as school
prayer, tuition tax credits and a proposed constitutional amendment against
Senate Majority Leader Howard Baker (R-Tenn.), after meeting with
Reagan and Michel at the White House, said Congress will concentrate on
legislation essential to keep the government running.
By that, he meant the 13 regular appropriations bills, as well as any
stopgap money bills that need to be approved for the new fiscal year starting
Oct. 1, and a measure to extend the public debt limit.
"Presidents are sort of like senators or congressmen. They always ask for
more than they think they're going to get, I suppose," Baker said.
Domestic industrial output falls
WASHINGTON - U.S. factory output fell 0.5 percent last month, the gover-
nment said yesterday, the 11th decline in 13 months of recession. If conditions
don't improve soon, one analyst said, there might not be a recovery this
As the recession drags into its second year, both private and Reagan ad-
mnistration economists are unwilling to predict exactly when recovery
"In the autumn," was as specific as Commerce Undersecretary Robert
Dederick would be in an interview yesterday.
"Some ways off . . . later in the year," said Jerry Jasinowski, chief
economist for the National Association of Manufacturers.
Robert Gough, a vice president with the forecasting firm Data Resources
Inc., said that if unemployment keeps rising and consumer loan rates don't
fall much, "1982 will really be gone; the changes that 1982 is lost will be very,
Senate filibuster continues
WASHINGTON - Senate conservatives fell 10 votes short yesterday as they
failed for a third - and probably last - time to break the tenacious liberal
filibuster against anti-abortion legislation sponsored by North Carolina's
Amid indications that the two-week-old abortion debate may be over,
Helms and his allies mustered just 50 of the 60 votes needed to stem the
talkathon. Forty-four senators voted against the move, known as cloture.
The outcome suggested that Helms, a Republican, will never pull the
needed strength in the 97th Congress to force an up-or-down vote on his
measure, which declares that the Supreme Court erred in 1973 when it
legalized most abortions.
Shortly before the vote, Senate leaders agreed to put off until next year a
debate and votes on a sec ondproposal, a constitutional amendment designed
to limit or eliminate legalized abortions.
As Republican leaders grew increasingly impatient with the pace of the
debate, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), said he would abandon efforts to get a
constitutional amendment through the Senate in the waning days of the 97th
Philippine President Marcos
visits Reagan amid protests
WASHINGTON - Philippines Prsident Ferdinand Marcos arrived here
yesterday for his first state visit in 16 years, intent on seeking additional aid
in return for continued U.S. use of military bases in his country.
Marcos' decision to come at this time is regarded as a reflection of the
ideological affinity he feels for President Reagan and his administration.
His relations with the Carter administration were somewhat cool because
of the human rights issue. Marcos favors the quieter approach of the
Reagan administration on that subject.
Anti-Marcos groups in the United States have vowed to stage demon-
strations throughout his five-day visit.
The highlight of Marcos' visit will be a meeting today with President
Reagan. An elaborate welcoming ceremony on the White House South
Lawn, including a 21-gun salute, is planned.
Drug may end menstrual pain
BOSTON- A group of mild painkillers will dramatically relieve the
cramps, backaches, nausea and dizziness that many women suffer each
month during menstruation, a study shows.
The drugs, which block production of a body hormone, are so effective that
most women who are ordinarily bedridden for a day or two a month can fun-
ction normally, the research shows.
The drugs have been gaining acceptance over the past three years for
treatment of menstrual cramps. But the new study is the first to show that
they relieve a variety of other troublesome symptoms that can accompany
For women who take the drugs for the first time, "it's like a miracle," said
Dr. Penny Wise Budoff, who did the study. "They are so used to spending a
day or two out of every month in bed with pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
and feeling faint and weak. They can take a pill and function."
The doctor, who is on the staff of the State University of New York at Stony
Brook, conducted the study on 47 women who are patients in her private
family practice. It was published in Thursday's issue of the New England
Journal of Medicine.
