Senate delays
changes in
Social Security


WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate
overwhelmingly voted yesterday to
leave Social Security intact until a
bipartisan commission makes recom-
mendations on keeping the system
The Senate also approved a budget
assumption that $4 million in savings
will be found in the system over the
next three years, after defeating a
Democratic-sponsored amendment, 53-
45, that would have rejected that
THE COMMISSION is unlikely to
make its report until after the Novem-
ber elections.
the 91-7 vote also promises that the 7.4
percent Social Security cost-of-living
adjustment will be paid as scheduled in
The vote came on an amendment to a
Defense Department authorization bill,
which might not be accepted by a
House-Senate conference committee.
INSTEAD,, THE main battle over
Social Security is likely to come when
the Senate debates the overall budget
resolution Friday or early next week.
The vote came hours after Budget
Director David Stockman said that
President Reagan's proposal to fine $40
billion in Social Security savings faces
such strong opposition among House
Republicans that the president may be
forced to revise his 1983 spending plan

Pac-Man King
W HEN ERIC SCHWIBS, a computer science studentfrom Buffalo State
College in New York, put a quarter ina Pac-Man machine at 9:45p.m., he
didn't expect it to last until 6 a.m. the next day. By then he had run up a score
of almost 3 million points and left the computer game in a state of shock. "I
am the king of Pac-Man," proclaimed Schwibs, whose feat was witnessed by
a bartender who kept a pub open a Schwibs continued to roll up points. Sch-
wibs said the computer twice turned over after reaching 935, 590 points,
because the game's program only accommodates a six-digit number. When
his score reached almost 3 million, however, the image on the screen
divided. On the left hand side was the Pac-Man maze, on the other, a mess of
numbers and letters as the computer overloaded its circuits.

... warns of strong House opposition
Stockman would not predict whether
Reagan's proposal would be dropped.
A White House Spokesman said the
president wasn't firmly committed to
the proposal.
As the Democratic-controlled House
Budget Committee began work on its
own budget plan, Stockman said the
administration is working for commit-
tee approval of a plan "that's substan-
tially close," to the one used by the
counterpart Senate panel.
