Dr. Arthur Vander, presented a
discussion about the medical aspects of
nuclear war. "I'm convinced that if we
understood the true nature of a nuclear
war, the movement arising would be
irrepressible;" he said.
Vander denied any comparisons bet-
ween modern nuclear war and the
bombs dropped on Japan. "The weapon
which is targeted on us right now is 90
tines more powerful than the one drop-
ped on Hiroshima," he said.
'WE NEED an immediate personalj
feeling for what would happen (in a
nuclear war), numbers mean nothing,"
Vander said. He illustrated-his point by
vividly describing what happens to the
human body when exposed to severe
radiation, such as the crushed bodies,
peeling skin, and shattered bones.
No good whatsoever is coming out of
the arms race, he said. "Nuclear
weapons are not weapons, they are

Bush hopes to reaffirm allies
WASHINGTON - Vice President George Bush heads for Europe and a
fence-mending mission today, his prestige as a major figure in the Reagan
administration on the line along with furthering U.S.-Soviet negotiations to
curb nuclear weapons.
The assignment is both delicate and important, because Bush meets with
leaders of six allied governments, trying to ease differences over U.S.
Working behind the scenes, and in the glare of publicity, Bush will try to
reach an understanding to stabilize the jittery trans-Atlantic alliance on the
nuclear war issue. As Bush told reporters on Thursday, he intends to press
Soviet negotiators to "come up with a reasonable proposal" at the

If it succeeds, Bush's stock as a potential presidential candidate certainly
could be boosted by his handling of delicate diplomacy on the anxiety-
marked issue of nuclear war.
Shultz tours Asia, hopes to
increase Japanese defenses
WASHINGTON - Secretary of State George Shultz has begun a two-week
tour of Asia with hopes of convincing Japan to increase its defenses, easing
tensions with China and assuring the South Koreans of U.S. military com-
As Shultz left yesterday for Tokyo, a U.S. official accompanying him said
recent references to nuclear retaliation by the Soviet Union may help the
argument for strengthening Japan's military defense.
One of Shultz's primary missions will be to encourage the Japanese people
to accept Japanese Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakason's desire for more
After World War II, Japan adopted a constitution which restricted
military power to defense. The country has a treaty with the United States
which assures U.S. protection in an emergency. Hence, Japan's budget for
defense is small and its people have opposed any increases.
The United States wants the country to do more to accept responsibilities
for specific missions to defend the Japanese home islands and to protect the
sealanes as far as 1,000 nautical miles from its shores.
More Calif. storms forecast
LOS ANGELES - The latest in a series of storms that has wreaked close
to $70 million damage on the California coast blew itself out yesterday as
more homes collapsed into the rampaging surf.
But new storms were backed up over the Pacific "from here to Japan,"
one forecaster said, threatening another week of the heavy weather that has
killed 11 people.
Nineteen homes have been destroyed and 3,153 damaged statewide since
the storms began last week, said Anita Garcia of the state Office of
Nearly 2,000 coastal residents were evacuated during the week, many of
them seeking refuge in 18 Red Cross centers around the state, she said. Most
were back at their homes after the fourth storm, a bit milder than feared,
wrung itself dry yesterday after dumping 1.39 inches of rain on already
soggy Southern California.
The National Weather Service said the storm threat was easing tem-

Along the Sacramento-San Joaqin delta, work crews filled sandbags and
dumped rocks along riverbanks in a battle to protect some of the richesfar-
mland in America. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers estimates $415 million
will be needed to repair broken and weakened levees along the rivers.
Tinkering may doom plans
for Social Security's rescue
WASHINGTON - The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee
says Congress should be able to approve a Social Security rescue plan by
Easter - but he warns that delay or tinkering with the precarious com-
promise could doom the effort.
"I analyze this as the train moving through the depot at a pace fast enough
so that nobody can jump off," said Rep. Dan Rostenkowski (D-Ill). "And the
one guy I've got to keep on this train is Claude Pepper." President Reagan,
he said, must hold already-balking Senate Republicans on board.
Pepper, an 82-year-old Florida Democrat, was a key figure in the com-
promise struck by the National Commission on Social Security Reform. He
chairs the House Rules Committee and has close ties with elderly voters.
Canadian public workers strike
QUEBEC - With cracks showing in their "Common Front" and gover-
nment threatening stiff penalties, thousands of striking public workers con-
verged on this provincial capital yesterday to press their campaign against
Police and other observers said an estimated 20,000 marchers - about half
the number predicted by union organizers - paraded to the Quebec National
Assembly building in a line about a mile long.
Most of the demonstrators were members of the teachers union, the group
most affected by a recent law that cut wages and imposed new working con-
ditions in a three-year contract.
More than 115,000 government workers, mostly teachers, walked off their
jobs last week in the first stage of the escalating strike that left 1 million
students without classes and disrupted other government services.

Sketchy highlights of the budget,
made available to leaders of Congress
on Friday, were obtained by The
Associated Press. Complete budget
documents - including precise
estimates of proposed spending
changes for each federal program bet-
ween 1983 and 1984 - were being
withheld until tomorrow.
EDWIN DALE, a spokesman for the
White House budget office, said spen-
'ding on food stamps, welfare, and sup-
plemental income payments to the
elderly, blind, and disabled would be
"slightly lower than in 1983," but he
declined to provide specific figures.
"The changes are just around the
edges. . . They're minimal," Dale said
yesterday. "The average welfare
mother or food stamp recipient would
not be affected."
Dale said the changes are designed to
limit benefits or eligibility to those with
the most pressing financial needs.
Nevertheless, the administration's
social spending proposals received
prompt rebuffs from their political
allies and foes in Congress.
Senate Majority Leader Howard
Baker (R-Tenn.) said there would be a
"donnybrook" in Congress over
Reagan's plan for a virtual freeze on
domestic spending while giving the
Pentagon another $30 billion.

If the United States remains captured
by the need to please Israel, it is doing
itself, as well as advocates of peace, a
great disservice, Maksoud said.
The United States should reassess its
policy in the Mideast, because America
has been trusted with the task of crisis
management, and there is a crisis on

"In the final analysis," he said,
"there must be negotiation to achieve
