THE BATTALION TUESDAY, JANUARY 24, 1978 Page 3 Italian oil tanker blocking Texas harbor No new Carter spending United Press International FREEPORT, Texas — Refloat ing a grounded 700-foot Italian oil tanker blocking the harbor entrance was delayed by mechanical problems aboard a tugboat, a Coast Guard spokes man said Monday. Lt. Dennis Shoebotham said mechanical problems aboard a tug bringing barges to take 60,000 barrels of oil from the stuck ship, Finale, delayed the start of off-loading until 10 p.m. Monday. 'ed United Press International WASHINGTON — President Carter proposed his first budget, a one-half trillion dollar package that [ceeded his self-imposed limit and promised a substantial tax reduction for most Americans. I It exceeds current federal spend ing by $38 billion but, with few ex ceptions, proposes no new federal ending programs. Carter’s budget concentrated on |eeping up with inflation and pro sed little new spending except for ergy conservation and research, ere was a small increase in out- iys for national defense and a hint lat spending would rise for ailing lies, towns and older suburbs. Despite the fanfare surrounding the introduction of the Carter ad- jiinistration’s first budget, the final pending decisions must be made by Congress. If history is any guide, the budget will be changed consid- frably before the bureaucracy be gins to spend the money this Oc- ober. I Of the $38 billion in proposed in creases, he said $30 billion was accessary to maintain current serv ices because of inflation. Carter ticketed one-third of the $8 billion in new spending for energy research and conservation, and suggested modest rises in spending for educa- Ition and assistance to the jobless. KCarter asked for $13.2 billion to more than double spending for energy conservation, to substitute wood and other fuels for oil and gas, and to step up research on all energy sources except nuclear reac tors. Rut a White House forecast of fu ture spending showed the years of rapidly growing energy budgets are about to end. Carter said he wants to cut back the space shuttle program by seek ing funds for a fleet of four orbital transports instead of five as origi nally planned. The shuttle is a reus able ship that will haul satellites to and from orbit and carry manned laboratories to conduct space re search. Carter offered only two new in itiatives in his campaign to cut un employment from 6.6 percent to a historic full employment level of 4 percent by 1983. The president created 725,000 public service jobs in fiscal 1978 as the backbone of his jobs campaign. The new budget would continue to fund those jobs, plus 50,000 more through a welfare reform demon stration project. Acknowledging the political real ities of trying to scrap a program with strong support on Capitol Hill, Carter withdrew his ill-fated attempt of last year to chop nearly $400 mil lion in “impact aid” funds for schools. Carter disclosed plans to end 21 Spanish freighter, barge in wreck United Press International IGALVESTON — A ship collided ith a barge towed in the Houston liip Channel Monday, spilling an undetermined amount of diesel el, a Coast Guard spokesman said.
