CHICAGO (UPI) - Ann Landers is
Eppie Lederer, but Eppie Lederer is
not always Ann Landers, even after 30
years and 10,950 columns of advice to
scorned lovers, confused teenagers
and angry in-laws.
Lederer celebrated her anniversary
as Ann Landers yesterday with a
column thanking her editors, staff and
readers for 30 "incredibly rewarding"
"I HAVE NO plans to retire," Ann
Landers told her fans.
"I intend to crank out this column
as long as you find me useful and the
good Lord gives me the strength to do
it. On this special day, I send love and
thanks to each and every one of you."
Lederer, 67, said over the years she
has worked to maintain her identity
apart from Ann Landers.
"I TELL all my friends to call me
Eppie," said -Lederer. "If you hear
someone call me Ann, you know they
don't know me very well."
The problems her readers cite,
however, appear to be universal.
"If I would allow these letters to get
to me, I would be a basket case. Some
of them are so tragic. They are so
hopeless. They break my heart. I
learned to separate myself early. I
had to take them seriously but I
shouldn't let them affect me," she
Lederer assumed the role of Ann
Landers after winning a contest to
replace the real Ann Landers.
"She died," Lederer said, "and the
(Chicago) Sun-Times ran a contest to
replace her. I was the most un-
derqualified person to apply. I was the
only of the 29 women (who applied)
who was not a professional writer. I
had never held a job before.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Faced with
a Nov. 1 deadline, House and Senate
negotiators settled in yesterday for
tough bargaining on legislation aimed
at forcing Congress and the White
House to meet the goal of balancing
the federal budget.
House democrats have complained
that the version of the plan passed by
the Republican-led Senate, promising
a balanced budget by 1991, gives the
president too much power, does not
allow sufficient flexibility during
economic slowdowns and does not cut
enough spending now.
SUPPORTERS say the sweeping
measure, which President Reagan
has embraced, will provide the
necessary club to force Congress and
the federal government to live within
"In less than two weeks, House con-
ferees are asked to consume both the
enormity of the concept and the com-
plexity of the details - and develop
alternatives, where necessary - on a
plan that promises to surrender broad
powers to the president and threatens
the balance of our social respon-
sibility," said Rep. Dan Rostenkowski
(D-Ill. ), chairman of the House
Ways and Means Committee.
The Senate adopted the budget plan
last week as an amendment to a
measure raising the national debt
limit to more than $2 trillion.
The government is at its current
borrowing authority of $1.824 trillion
and Treasury Department officials
said Wednesday that money from
emergency moves to replenish gover-
nment coffers will be gone by Nov. 1.
THE COMPLEX plan would set
statutory ceilings on budget deficits -
now running at about $200 billion a
year - beginning with $180 billion in
the current fiscal year and decreasing
by $36 billion a year until reaching
zero in 1991.
If Congress and the White House are
unable to agree on how to meet the
annual goals, the plan gives the
president authority to impose
automatic spending cuts to keep the
red ink within the ceiling.
Following the Senate aciton, the
Democratic-controlled House over-
whelmingly agreed to the conference
and endorsed the balanced budget
goal without embracing the specifics
of the Senate plan.
U.S. has best educated people
(Continued from Page 1)
Education, which says that 26.1 per-
cent of the students who were high
school freshmen in 1979 failed to
graduate in 1983. Alan Ginsburg,
Education's director of planning, said
the 26.1 percent figure does not in-
clude those who later obtain high
school equivalency diplomas.
O'Neill, the Census analyst, said,
"Some people could lie. That's
definitely a possibility."
NUMEROUS groups of educators,
civic and business leaders have
deplored the state of U.S. high schools
in recent years and called for steps to
make them more rigorous.
The Census report said the
education gap between the races has
narrowed and may have helped
blacks make economic gains.
It pointed to Scholastic Aptitude
Test scores, results from the National
Assessment of Educational Progress
and other evidence to support its con-
clusion that "the quality of schooling
has declined, especially during the
The report said that the poor
showing of American students on
some international scholastic com-
parisons is due in part to the low rate
of attrition from U.S. schools. Coun-
tries with high dropout or flunk-out
rates generally look better on such
The report said, "Contrary to most-
current opinion, the market for
college graduates may be reviving."
(Continued from Page 1)
"She said 'I want to rescind my
resignation' but Bruce had already
been appointed to fill her seat,"
JOSEPHSON further contends that
he had every reason to believe that
Ward had resigned because she
missed four consecutive meetings.
According to MSA's constitution,
missing three consecutive meetings is
grounds for dismissal. But she said
that two of those meetings should not
be counted because Josephson ex
cused her from attending.
