State Senate passes
LANSING (UPI)- The Senate gave easy approval
*esterday to slim the state welfare budget for the
coming fiscal year, clearing the way for final ap-
proval of spending plans for other state programs
The Senate voted 29-5 on the compromise budget
and sent the measure for final House approval.
THE WELFARE budget is even smaller than the
current year's appropriation. It keeps grants to
families and individuals at current levels, could
mean the layoff of 211 Department of Social Services
central office staff and permits no spending for elec-
ve welfare abortions.
Contained in the state's largest budget bill is $1.68
billion in state funds, for a $3.36 billion budget when
federal funds are included. During the current fiscal
year, which ends Sept. 30, the state spent $1.74 billion
of its money on welfare for a total of $3.54 billion when
federal funds were included.
"This is a period of retrenchment," said Sen.
Stephen Monsma (D-Grand Rapids), a member of
the House-Senate conference committee on the bill.
"Grants are not increased for another year . .. in
spite of inflation that is eating away at spending
THE HOUSE originally voted to cut welfare
payments by $30 million.
Sen. Alvin DeGrow (R-Pigeon) said the budget is
based on optimistic predictions and added, "we
might have a $30 million to $40 million problem if
everything doesn't go as it should."
Gov.. William Milliken is expected to veto for a four-
teenth time a provision in the bill which bans the use
of welfare money for abortions except to save the life
.of the mother.
There was no debate on that provision.
The welfare budget did not fall into place until an
agreement reached with hospital and medical
representatives decided on a six-member committee
that would study the system of making Medicaid
payments to hospitals. In the meantime, state cost
reduction programs will continue.

U. S. MARINES and French
paratroopers were sailing back to west
Beirut to try to prevent new bloodshed
in the Lebanese capital. Crews
bulldozing through the ruins of the
Sabra and Chatilla Palestinian refugee
camps in west Beirut recovered more
bodies yesterday, bringing to 293 the
total confirmed killed in last week's
slaughter of civilians by Lebanese
Some 1,800 Marines set out from
Naples, Italy, yesterday, bound for
Lebanon aboard the U.S. helicopter
About 1,200 of the Marines, scheduled
to arrive off the Beirut coast Saturday,
will join 950 French troops and 1,000
Italian infantrymen in a multinational
force similar to the one that supervised
the withdrawal of PLO guerrillas from
Beirut in August.
The reconstituted force was requested
by the Lebanese government to guard
against repetitions of the camp
massacres and support the government
of newly elected President Amin
Gemayel as it tries to assert its
authority over the capital and even-
tually the country.
The Reagan administration has
demanded that Israeli forces withdraw
from Beirut. The Lebanese state radio
said the Israelis were pulling out
gradually under a plan that would have
them out of west Beirut by Sunday.
President Reagan's special envoy,
Philip Habib, returned yesterday to
Beirut, where he spent two months
negotiating the PLO pullout.
Lebanese government sources said
the Marines would guard Beirut's air
and sea ports, the Italians would be
stationed at Palestinian refugee camps
- although it was not clear whether this
would include the Sabra and Chatilla
camps - and the French would help the
Lebanese army secure the rest of west
The first French paratroopers were
expected to arrive by sea today, and the
Italians on Friday.
"They will be more welcome than the
Lebanese army" said a Lebanese of-
ficer who took over positions from the
withdrawing Israeli troops. "Because
it means America is here. And when
America is here that means security is

Frye said they would probably decide
on the institute's fate within the month.
After the administration's vote, the

board. There is little chance the Regen-

LONDON (AP) - Hundreds of
thousands of British workers, from coal
miners to school aides, walked off the
job yesterday and joined in mass rallies
in support of striking health service

the 11-million-member Trades Union

strikes until Thatcher agrees to higher
pay for the 750,000 workers in, the state-
run National Health Service, among the
nation's lowest-paid workers.
