Summaries of the stories the major media outlets considered to be of particular importance on this date:

  • Congress will be asked to increase aid to El Salvador this year by $100 million, and the administration will seek more increases in the next fiscal year, officials said. Military aid for the current fiscal year amounts to $25 million and all forms of economic aid total about $110 million. The economic and military aid request for fiscal 1983, which begins in October, is to be made in the President's budget presentation next month and is expected to be about $300 million. [New York Times]
  • A signature has been questioned on documents in a recent proposed sale of President Reagan's house in Los Angeles. An agreement to sell the house collapsed two weeks ago after a savings and loan executive discovered two sets of closing papers bearing different sales prices. [New York Times]
  • More layoffs at the Census Bureau will put 500 employees out of work and the agency, which has had to cancel or delay some of its population reports because of budget cuts, will partially furlough its remaining 5,400 staff members. Furloughed employees will be off without pay one day out of every 10 working days for at least 100 days. In addition to its reduced budget, one of the reasons for the additional layoffs was the sharp decline in statistical studies for other agencies whose budgets were also cut back. [New York Times]
  • Senator S.I. Hayakawa of California will not run for election to a second term, he announced at the California Republican Party convention in Monterey. He was elected to the Senate six years ago. [New York Times]

  • Fear of crime is pervasive in New York City and has forced changes in the way people live. The perception among New Yorkers of an increase in crime is supported by the Federal Bureau of Investigation's statistics. While the city's population has been declining, the total number of serious crimes reported increased by nearly 25 percent from 1978 to 1980, the last year for which complete figures are available. [New York Times]
  • The worldwide day of protest against military rule in Poland proclaimed earlier this month by President Reagan attracted less than capacity crowds in American cities. Technicians at a New York television studio worked into the night on a United States-sponsored program, "Let Poland Be Poland," to be broadcast worldwide tomorrow afternoon. [New York Times]
  • Libyan troops arrived in Poland for special training, an indication of the new warmth in Polish-Libyan relations after the declaration of martial law in Poland. Western sources said that 161 Libyan cadets arrived in Warsaw on Monday and a second group of 60 arrived on Thursday. [New York Times]
  • Hospital care for a Soviet woman who has been on a hunger strike in the United States Embassy in Moscow, where she was among seven Pentecostalists given asylum three and a half years ago, was ordered by embassy officials. Lidiya Vashchenko who with the others had been seeking to emigrate, was accompanied to a hospital by American officials. [New York Times]
