House leader
blasts revised
Reagan budget

WASHINGTON (AP)- President
Reagan's revised budget received a
major setback yesterday when House
Republican leader Bob Michel declared
there is "just no way" Congress will
vote to reduce spending this year by
changes in Social Security.
"You've got to take that off the table
before you can even start" writing a
budget that House Republicans will
support, declared Michel (R-IlL.).
MICHEL ALSO said the plan raises
taxes too much and fails to cut the
defense buildup enough to satisfy House
The new budget, which Reagan en-
dorsed before television cameras in the
Rose Garden five days ago, calls for $40
billion worth of unspecified Social
Security spending cuts or tax increases
through 1985 to help reduce budget
It provides for $95 billion in tai in-
creases and a $22 billion reduction in
the administration's defense buildup
over three years.
MICHEL, reflecting the election-year
volatility of a program that affects 36
million Americans, said, "As much as I
personally sould like to see us do
something on Social Security, there's
just no way we can address that issue"

before receiving a year-end report from
a bipartisan study commission.
The revised budget already had been
passed by the GOP-controlled Senate
Budget Committee. But Michel said it
has "never been our intention" to push
for its approval in the House as drafted.
He said Republicans were working on
drafting an alternative of their own to
replace the plans backed by Reagan
and a third alternative endorsed by the
Democratic leadership.
"DON'T EXPECT the same game
that's being played over there in the
Senate to be played over here," he said
he told White House officials.
At the White House, spokesman
Larry Speakes said he did not interpret.
Michel's comments as "a major
challenge to the legislation."
Administration talks with House
Republican leaders will continue,
Speakes said, and he predicted "most
Republicans and a large number of
Democrats" will come around to sup-
port some sort of compromise measure.
In the GOP-controlled Senate, the
proposal to use $40 billion in Social
Security savings to trim deficits over
three years survived a Democratic at-
tempt to throw it out. A near-party line
vote of 51-44 tabled the attempt.

Two shots too many
A SAGINAW WOMAN told police that she was feeling no
pain when she returned home from a bar Sunday night, although she
woke up Monday to discover she had been shot twice in the abdomen. Lou
Ella Brown, 34, was treated at a hospital for two minor wounds, police said.
When she returned homw Sunday night,she saw police talking to a crowd of
people at an intersection-near her house. Brown said she then heard what
sounded like either firecrackers or shots, but paid no attention-to them and
went to bed, The next morning Brown discovered her injuries. Police said
there were no reports of any shooting in the area at the time. And the only
shots Brown remembered obviously were those of an alcoholic nature. E
Royal doubles
P RINCE AND PRINCESS of Wales look-a-likes, look out. CBS cur-
rently is looking for you to star in a television movie entitled "Charles
and Diana; A Royal Romance." The network wants to find unknown per-
formers able to pass for the blue-blooded pair-at least to the untrained eyes
of American television addicts. The movie, which starts shooting this-month,
will use the royal dead ringers to recreate the couple's-courtship and lavish
wedding. Charles and Di have not commented on the proposed film, but if it
garners the ratings of the real royal wedding, the two may become the hot-
test video couple since J.R. and Sue Ellen.

United States may
withdraw from WHO

GENEVA, Switzerland (AP) - The
United States said yesterday it may
withdraw from the World Health
Organization if the membeM& adopt a
resolution proposing Israel's ouster frm
the U.N. agency.
The U.S. delegate, Dr. John Bryan,
said the draft resolution was "frankly
inaccurate and offensive," and if it
poassed, "my government would
initiate a review of its future role in the
World Health Organization, including
our financial support and technical
THE DRAFT resolution proposes to
condemn Israel for its "annexation of
Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights." It
asks the WHO to abide by a recent
special U.N. General Assembly
resolutin which said Israel had no right
to U.N. membership because it ws not a
The United States "is adamantly and
unequivocally opposed" to the

resolution, which could result in
Israel's "total isolation in all fields,"
said Bryant.
A WHO spokesman, Gino Levy, ex-
plained that the draft resolution is "a
test case," because, if passed, it could
serve as an precedent for ousting Israel
from other U.N. agencies.
THE AMERICAN threat to withdraw
came unexpectedly during discussion
of a related agenda item.cThe session
promptly took a political turn, as
delegate after delegate from com-
munist, developing and Arab countries
called for Israel to return occupied Arb
territory. Among the most vigorous at-
tacks was from Mauritania's delegate,
who called Israel "a Hitlerian state."
Discussion on the draft resolution
was adjourned until today.
The WHO, established in 1948, directs
international health work, particularly
in developing countries. It has 155
member states, which met annually in
