Victims sue Hinckley's
From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - White House press secretary
James Brady and two others wounded by John Hin-
ckley Jr. in his attack on President Reagan filed a $14
million suit yesterday against the psychiatrist who
treated the troubled drifter before his arrest.
The civil suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Denver,
charged Dr. John Hopper Jr. of Evergreen, Colo.,
negligently examined and diagnosed Hinckley's men-
tal condition and failed.to follow proper psychiatric
"DR. HOPPER knew or should have known that Hin-
ckley posed a danger to himself and others and was
capable of attempting a political assassination, and
Dr. Hopper negligently failed to warn law enforcem-
ent officials of such fact," the suit charged.
At Hinckley's trial last year, Hopper testified Hin-
ckly had told him his mind was "on the breaking
point." But the psychiatrist said he did not have "as
much concern as we all realize now that we should
Hopper treated the young man for five months
before the March 30, 1981, attack on Reagan. He last
saw Hinckley four days before the incident.
PRESIDENTIAL press secretary James Brady,
the most seriously injured, sued for $8 million in
damages. Secret Service Agent Timothy J. McCarthy
sought $2 million, and Patrolman Thomas Delahanty
asked for $4 million. Reagan did not join the suit.
The suit said Hopper negligently prescribed
Valium for Hinckley, which had the effect of in-
creasing his aggressive tendencies and used biofeed-
back treatments that "magnified his delusional
It said Hopper knew about Hinckley's obsession
with actress Jodie Foster and was aware he closely
identified with Travis Bickle, a character in the
movie "Taxi Driver" who purchased guns and
stalked a political candidate.

situation from the state's point of view.
Jondahl said the problems with state
funding to the University can be direc-
tly linked to economic difficulties
plaguing the state. He cited a decrease
in revenue returning to the state from
the :flederal government, a drop in
revenue in the state itself, and wasteful
defense-spending by the federal gover-
nment as reasons for Michigan's lack of
support for higher education.
THE RESULT of this decreased sup-
port, he said, is a decline in the quality
of instruction at state universities,
problems in attracting quality faculty
to these universities, and a shifting
burden for support fom the state to
Jondahl said the state has cut sup-
port for higher education by $65 million
since 1978, causing universities to make
up for that by raising student tuition.
Students now provide 33 percent of the
support for these institutions, he said.
Jondahl said the state would like to
see the universities begin the redirec-
tion process themselves, but added that
if they do not then the legislature would
not hesitate to do so. "The best defense
(for universities) is to come up with
some plans of their own," he said.
University Vice President for Acad-
emic Affairs and Provost Billy Frye
said that while state support to the
University has decreased, the costs of
utilities and other necessities has risen,
forcing money from academic funds to
be channeled to maintenance costs.
Frye said the university has shifted
the burden to the students, but still has
$50 million to $60 million dollars less
than it needs to operate.
Countering Bryant's argument, Frye
stressed that the administration was
not embarking on a plan to channel
money to high tech areas. "It is not a
redirection away from humanities and
into technology," he said.
In the future, Frye said he sees little
hope of financial problems disap-
pearing. "Signs are that the problems
will go on for another decade and
maybe a decade-and-a-half," he said.

Reagan attaeks budget plan
WASHINGTON - President Reagan declared war yesterday on a
Democratic budget plan that would raise taxes and social spending while-,
cutting his Pentagon buildup by more than half. He called it "a dagger
aimed straight at the heart" of his economic policies.
Reagan complained the Democratic plan, approved on a straight party-
line vote by the House Budget Committee, would reverse the tax and budget
victories he notched his first two years in office.
Assailing the Democratic blueprint as "a truly dangerous budget
proposal," Reagan said. "This isn't a step forward but a giant step back-
ward into an economic quagmire.
"I'm not going to sit still for a proposal that makes a huge increase in
taxes, guts our defense program, repeals many of the overdue welfare
reforms that we have enacted, and adds an incredible $181 billion in
domestic spending to what we've proposed," Reagan said.
The president vowed he would veto any legislation repealing this year's 10
percent tax cut and inflation-indexed tax cuts that begin next year.
Iran at odds with OPEC
Iran yesteray branded OPEC's $5-a-barrel oil price cut "illegal" because
it did not participate in the decision and vowed to fight the "treachery" of
the cartel's Persian Gulf Arabs that led the campaign for lower prices.
Oil traders in London said Iran mounted the broadside attack on OPEC to
justify discounts of $2 a barrel that it would soon offer on its oil.
Britain, under intense pressure from customers to knock as much as $2 a
barrel off its North Sea crude to compete with OPEC's new prices, said it
would not reduce its oil by more than 75 cents a barrel.
Analysts said the British position should help stabilize world oil prices and
reinforce the Organization of'Petroleum Exporting Countries' four-day-old
agreement to slash its benchmark crude to $29 a barrel to avert a price war.
Wholesale inflation down .1%
WASHINGTON - Surging food costs wiped out new declines in energy
prices to leave wholesale inflation at a minuscule 0.1 percent in February,
the government reported yesterday. The new report raised economists'
hopes-about further easing of the inflation rate for the entire year.
However, a separate report on personal income threw some cold water on
optimism about the strength of the economy's rebound from the lengthy
recession over the past two years.
The 0.6 percent increase in food prices was the biggest since last April, and
economists predicted further jumps ahead.
Still, with world oil prices falling, analysts were forecasting that this
year's inflation rate at the wholesale level - as measured by the Labor
Department's Producer Price Index for finished goods - could be under last
year's 3.5 percent, which marked the smallest rise since 1971.
President Reagan called the report "more excellent news on the
"It raises the purchasing power of every American." he said. "In coming
months, of course the inflation figures may bounce around a little, but it's
clear we're finally breaking the back of inflation in the United States, and
now that it's down, we have to keep it down."
Sen ate bans benefits to aliens
WASHINGTON - The Senate, working on a $165 billion bailout plan for the
troubled Social Security system, voted yesterday to add a strict prohibition
against paying benefits to illegal aliens.
The amendment by Sen. Don Nickles (R-Okla.), which also would bar
benefits to aliens who reside legally but were not supposed to work, won by
voice vote after a Democratic move to table, and thus kill it, failed, 58-34.
The Senate slogged through a series of minor amendments in its third day
of debate on the rescue bill. Leaders put off until Monday a showdown on
whether to delay mandatory coverage for new federal workers.
Earlier, the senators rejected, 80-13, an attempt to freeze Social Security
benefits for a year instead of six months as part of the rescue plan.
The rescue bill would also revamp the way Medicare pays hospital bills
and extend for six months the federal program to provide additional unem-
ployment benefits for workers who have exhausted their state benefits.
Carter visits troops in Beirut
Former President Carter arrived yesterday in Beirut, where he will visit
with U.S. Marines on alert after four days of attacks against the
multinational peace-keeping force. Two hand grenades were thrown at
French troops in the latest assault.
Marine officers hoped Carter's visit with their 1,200-man contingent would
help boost morale after some men said they were uneasy patrolling Beirut
following the attacks in which five Marines were wounded in a hand-grenade
"Of course, we don't like it," said Cpl. John Rungs, 24, who said he recen-
tly was on a patrol turned back by the Israelis. "To turn around and walk
away in front of those people (Lebanese civilians) - it's a kick in the rear. It
hurts our pride. I understand it, it's our orders. We avoid confrontations. But
I don't like it."4
The Marines are part of a multinational peacekeeping force in Lebanon to
back up the Lebanese government's effort to re-establish control over
metropolitan Beirut, parts of which have been supervised by Israeli troops
since their invasion last summer to oust Palestinian guerrillas.

Two University professors who to-
gether served the University for about
50 years, died this week.
Albert Mullen, a member of the art
school faculty for almost 30 years died
of cancer in his Ann Arbor home on
Wednesday. Mullen was known for his
colorful, impresionistic paintings.
MULLEN'S work is represented in
the permanent collections of many
museums nationwide, including the
Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the
Detroit Institute of Arts, and the
Library of Congress.
"It was our good fortune that he was
also a teacher of great intensity,
demanding of quality, freely giving of
his own experience," William Lewis,
acting associate dean of the art school
said in a written statement.
Earlier in the week, retired Music
School Prof. Florian Mueller died at the
age of 78 in his St. Petersburg, Fla.
Mueller was a distinguished oboist
and composer. He played with the
Chicago Symphony Orchestra from
1927 to 1954, serving most of those years
as first oboist. He was also a member of
John Philip Sousa's band in 1929.
