The Michigan Daily-Friday, March 25, 1983-Page 3
WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Reagan signed into law last night anti-
recession legislation that includes $4.6
billion for food, shelter and public
works jobs as well as funds needed
urgently by more than half the states to
pay unemployment benefits.
Final congressional approval came
on a voice vote in the House in the af-
ternoon, two days after the Senate
cleared the compromise bill and with
lawmakers anxious to adjourn for a
10-day Easter recess. Reagan signed
the bill as soon as it got to him, which
was "around 9:30 or 10 p.m.," said
White House spokesman Lyndon Allin."
For several hours it was not clear
whether the president would get the bill
Thursday night, but the adminstration
told states whose unemployment ac-
counts have run dry that they could
resume issuing benefit checks im-
mediately in advance of a presidentail
signature Friday morning. House
members accepted a Senate proposal
that will make sure that about $2 billion
of the $4.6 billion goes directly to areas
where the recession has hit the hardest.
In addition to public works construc-
tion projects and social programs that
might provide up to a half million jobs
- and $550 million in humanitarian aid
- the bill contains $5 billion in fresh
money for the federal fund that lends
money to states to pay their unem-
ployment compensation claims.
The fund ran dry Tuesday, and 28
states and three other jurisdictions
scrambled to shift other funds around
to meet the claims of the estimated 2
million people that might be affected.
CONGRESS made it in the nick of
time. "We've absolutely run out of
money," said Jack Hashian of the
Labor Department's Employment and
Training administration, which over-
sees the various state and federal
jobless benefit programs.
He said no further transfers of ac-
counts were possible, and that 18 states
have either already run out of unem-
ployment benefit money or will by
today. Reagan's quick signature should
resolve any serious delays.
About $2 billion in the bill is aimed at
states and localities with the highest
rates of unemployment under a com-
plex distribution formula that held up
final approval for two days as House
and Senate negotiators argued over
how much should go to states and how
much to cities and counties.
The biggest single block of money in
the bill, $1 billion, is for community
development grants, money for states
and cities to use on public works
programs, half of which can be used for,
public service jobs, aiding women shut-
out from the heavy construction tilt,
elsewhere in the bill.

CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (UPI) -
Students at Christiansburg High School
voted overwhelmingly. yesterday to
keep their 50-year-old mascot, the'
"Blue Demon," despite petitions signed
by 500 churchgoers who think it is a
symbol of Satan.
But the leader of the petition drive,
Diane Kitts, said the controversy is not
over. She is organizing a group called
''Parents Against Demons."a
PRINCIPAL Sam Lucas said more
than 97 percent of the students casting
ballots favored keeping the mascot - a

A group of parents who felt the logo
was sacrilegious had circulated

Christiansburg, a southwest Virginia
town of about 10,000 residents, was
