Congressional
committees
agree. on cuts

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - Acting with
unusual dispatch, House and Senate
committees completed work yesterday
on $35 billion in cuts in government
programs to comply with President
Reagan's fiscal 1982 budget ceiling.
The recommendations, expected to
be voted upon by both houses within a
few weeks, would cut social programs
including unemployment compen-
sation, Social Security benefits, food
stamps, aid to education and welfare.
HOUSE REPUBLICAN Leader
Robert Michel of Illinois said his
colleagues had been "compressing into
two or three weeks what might nor-
mally take a whole two-year
Congress."
"It is a very dramatic shift and
change from ways of doing things innthe
past," he said.
But Michel, joined by other
Republicans and some conservative
Democrats, expressed dissatisfaction
that some of the cuts recommended by
the Democratic majority differ from
the ones' asked by Reagan. They
renewed threats to wage a floor fight in
an attempt to pass a substitute plan
that tracks the president's plan almost
exactly.
In the Republican-controlled Senate,
Budget Chairman Pete Domenici of
New Mexico said all 14 committees

required to recommend cuts had either
met their targets or exceeded them.
FINAL FIGURES were not yet
available from some of the panels, but
Domenici said that overall, the recom-
mended cuts amounted to $37.1 billion
for next year. That's $2 billion higher
than the target Congress established
earlier this month.
Rep. Leon Panetta, (D-Calif.), said
no final figures were available, but told
reporters that the recommended cuts
totaled at least $35 billion.
DOMENICI TOLD a news conference
the recommended reductions represen-
ted "the most dramatic reduction in
ongoing programs in the country's
history ... It is almost unbelievable to
me, looking back over the years and the
process, that we are at this point at this
time."
With the committee work finished,
the job of computing the final figures
has been turned over to economic ex-
perts in Congress. Next week, the
Rouse and Senate budget committees
will combine the committee recom-
mendations into one massive bill which
will reach the floors of both chambers
the week of June 22.
The federal income tax bill for a mid-
dle-income family of four would be up
to 22.5 percent lower in 1982 if the tax
laws are changed to include President
Reagan's proposals, the administration
estimated yesterday.

Today
'We're in the money'
THE UNIVERSITY'S College of Engineering is the recipient of $11,626
in grants from the Society of Manufacturing Engineers. The grants will
be used to purchase technical publications, books, and research materials.
The grant is part of a total $210,000 dispersed to universities and technical in-
stitutes by the SME Education Foundation. The purpose of the grants is to
spur new developments in manufacturing technology and productivity and
to further manufacturing engineering as an educational discipline. "At
present there are only about three accredited manufacturing engineering
programs in the country," said Richard Vogelei, executive director at SME
Headquarters in Dearborn. The grant was awarded to the University's
Department of Industrial and Operations Engineering and Department of
Electrical and Computer Engineering. The University was chosen for the
grant because of its "quality program" in engineering, said Vogelei. The
grants were awarded to about 60 different institutions from a field of ap-
proximately 100 applicants, said Vogelei.C
