MOSCOW (AP) - Popular U.S. films that cast violent figures such as "Rambo" as heroes are inciting the newest generation of Americans to hate Soviets, a group of Soviet cultural leaders said Friday. That prompted Soviet poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko to coin the term "warnography," a play on the word pornography, during a lighter moment of a news conference on renewed U.S.-Soviet cultural exchanges. But the tone of the session was set by Georgy Ivanov, deputy minister of culture, who said movies such as "Rambo — First Blood Part II," and "Red Dawn" are stirring up anti- Soviet sentiment among Americans. Ivanov said such films amount to an anti-Soviet campaign that is making a superhero out of a new type of professional killer. For your information Hospital admissions Asbury — William F.

Millionaires becoming more common in U.S. : WASHINGTON (AP) — Being rich is no longer a 1-in-a-million occurrence. ' In fact, by the end of this year one American household in 100 will have .a net worth of a million dollars or .more, according to U.S. News & ;World Report — a total of a million ; millionaires. ':' Citing information from market ^researchers, the magazine said the 'route to riches is more likely to be : that of an entrepreneur than of a .professional. .". The typical U.S. millionaire is a white male in his early 60s, is still married to his first wife and has a business catering to ordinary needs of his neighbors, it reported. "The real way people make money is... hard work for 30 years, six days a week," said Thomas Stanley, a .Georgia State University marketing professor who has been watching ^millionaires for more than a decade. • Nor does forttfce always go with ;fame, the rep.ort stated. Entertainers, athletes, writers and the ;like make up less than 1 percent of the millionaire population. Eighty percent of the elite group did not inherit their wealth, but came from middle or working-class backgrounds, it said. Many millionaires don't see themselves as rich. Most retain their middle-class lifestyles, shunning conspicuous consumption and thinking twice before spending money — including giving to charity, the magazine said. The highest concentration of millionaires is found in Florida, where 19 out of 1,000 households were in that category. Next are the District of Columbia, with 17 per 1,000, and Connecticut, with 16 per 1,000, the magazine reported. "Most American millionaires don't succeed by being Einstein or Edison, but by giving the familiar a new twist," the report says. "The businesses in which they make their fortunes have none of the glitz and glamour of high-tech and investment banking." The average annual income of millionaires is $121,000, the magazine said, which the entrepreneur can stretch further by use of perquisites like company-owned cars, expense accounts and pension provisions. "He does not merely kill, but kills specifically the 'Reds,' or the Russians, and not for the sake of money, but for ideological reasons and with kind of a perverse relish," Ivanov said. "People are being brought up with the malicious idea that the Russians can be talked to only in the language of force and arms," he said. "A new generation of Americans is being raised to consider deliberate murder as something natural and even necessary." "Rambo" is about a Vietman veteran sent to rescue U.S. prisoners of war in Vietnam, and "Red Dawn" is a scenario of a Soviet and Cuban invasion of the United States. Ivanov also mentioned "Rocky IV," about an American boxer who takes on an imposing Soviet rival, and an upcoming television mini- series by ABC called "Amerika," which is to portray the United States under Soviet occupation. "How can we reconcile all this flow of anti-Sovietism with the spirit of Geneva?" Ivanov said, referring to the signing of a U.S.-Soviet cultural exchange agreement during the superpower summit last November. ? But he said he also had high hopes for the new exchange agreement, despite what he called "the actions of the extreme right in the United States." "We feel the sincere longing of millions of Americans toward fruitful cooperation between the two countries based on mutual trust and respect," he said. Yevtushenko, 52, one of the most well-known Soviet writers, said the popularity of modern cinema makes it dangerous as well as beneficial. "Such horrible things as 'Rambo' and 'Red Dawn' — I call these things 'warnography,' "hesaid. Yevtushenko also was asked about a recent speech he made to the Soviet writers union, in which he took officials and fellow writers to task for distorting Soviet history and keeping silent about mistakes. "I am surprised that you are surprised that a poet speaks against bureaucracy because the two words — poet and bureaucrat — are mutually exclusive," Yevtushenko responded. "If somebody read my poetry, my works, there was really nothing new in these ideas. In my recent speech I simply summarized my whole life's work, "he said. He also suggested that new U.S.- Soviet cultural exchanges be directed by a volunteer group. Budget (Continued from Page 1) all the federal red ink has been eliminated in 1991. Reagan will submit his budget for fiscal 1987 to Congress on Feb. 1. It will include some $50 billion in spending cuts for that year. Since administration officials have repeatedly said that the Gramm- Rudman targets will be met without raising taxes or reducing Social Security benefits, while allowing defense spending to rise 3 percent above the rate of inflation, the result will be the largest package of domestic spending cuts ever presented to Congress. The plan being assembled by the White House, according to those familiar with it, includes drastic cutbacks in federal aid to states and cities, in housing, health and mass transit programs, and proposes the elimination of some two dozen federal programs — including Amtrak rail subsidies, the Interstate Commerce Commission, the Small Business Adminstration and the Economic Development Administration. Many of these ideas are recycled from administration proposals of a year ago — proposals that ran into tremendous political opposition on Capitol Hill and were rejected, one by one. Under the Gramm-Rudman- Hollings timetable, the Office of Mangement and Budget and the Congressional Budget Office make another deficit estimate on Aug. 20 — this time on the projected deficit for fiscal 1987, taking into account any deficit-reduction actions voted by Congress. If the projections show that the the deficit will exceed the $144 billion target for that year by at least $10 billion, then the automatic spending- cut process begins. However, many economists suggest that the act will not stand — and that either the Supreme Court will strike it down or that Congress will be forced to soften its blow. Even the Reagan administration's Justice Department has expressed reservations about the constitutionality of the act. A suit by Rep. Mike Synar, D- Okla., • claiming the act is an unconstitutional delegation of power by Congress — a view shared by a number of key members of Congress — is progressing through the federal courts. A White House budget official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said it is assumed by the administration that the case will wind up before the Surpreme Court within the next month, and that at least a temporary stay — suspending the March 1 round of cuts—is a distinct possibib'ty. Mother from 'Mask' helps son fight AIDS SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The woman whose struggle to help her son overcome a gross deformity touched millions in the film "Mask" is facing another deadly battle: her other son has AIDS. Rusty Mason says she will fight for this son as hard as she fought for Rocky, who died in 1978, 10 years later than doctors had predicted. Mason's story of drug abuse, motorcycle riding and tireless devotion to her son was depicted last year in a film by Peter Bogdanovich. Singer- actress Cher played the mother. The story centered on how Mason, who has since changed her name from Rusty Dennis, helped Rocky ignore ridicule from peers and b've years longer than expected despite his rare bone disease, which caused a severe deformity to his skull. In June, Mason said her son from a previous marriage, Joshua Mason, 30, was diagnosed as having acquired immune deficiency syndrome, which attacks the body's immune system, leaving it defenseless to a variety of illnesses. There is no cure and doctors say the disease is fatal. Joshua said on Friday he was diagnosed as having Kaposi's sar- Groups (Continued from Page 1) membership totals about 10,000. Older activist farm organizations, such as the 7-year-old American Agriculture Movement, have dramatically increased their membership. According to the group's leaders, it now has active chapters in 36 states. In Washington, political strategists like Alex Evans, senior analyst with Cambridge Survey Research, a polling and political consulting concern, are watching the developments with increasing interest. "These groups are going to have a big impact in elections in certain states in the Midwest," Evans said. "And they could have a big effect on the 1988 presidential election. Organized groups tend to have power beyond their numbers. And the first presidential caucus is held in Iowa." Lee Atwater, a political consultant who was deputy director of the Reagan campaign in 1984, said the groups posed no particular problem for the Republican Party now. "They are still in an embryonic stage," he said. "But it is something to keep an eye on. You don't want to have organized groups let their emotions get pent up." Initially, most of the groups were organized by farmers in response to increasing numbers of foreclosures in the early 1980s by the Farmers Home Administration, an agency of the Agriculture Department. More recently, the Farm Credit System, the nation's largest agricultural lender, took action to liquidate farms, spurring other growers to hire lawyers and form self-help groups. Many leaders said that as their groups had grown larger and matured, they had begun to see opportunities to pursue more aggressive political goals. For instance, throughout the debate on the 1985 farm bill, members traveled to Washington to lobby representatives and senators. Groups in the Middle West worked on state measures: The Iowa and Minnesota legislatures passed legislation that provided partial moratoriums on foreclosures, and a similar effort is under way in Missouri. "Things are happening very quickly," said A.L. Phillips Jr., vice president of the American Agriculture Movement's pob'tical action committee, which is based in Washington. "Elected officials who have not addressed the issues of interest rates, low prices and farm credit are going to catch a lot of flak in the election this year." Weather The activity has attracted organizations that have not been principally concerned with farm issues. Citizen Action, for instance, a national pob't- ical organization that was formed in 1979 and claims 2 million members, is helping to organize financially troubled farmers in eight states. "All these groups are discovering that by working together they can have a profound effect on the 1986 elections," said Michael Podhorzer, campaign director for Citizen Action. Citizen Action takes partial credit for helping Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, defeat the incumbent senator, Roger W. Jepsen, in 1984. "They were out there going door to door for months," said Dale Leibach, a spokesman for Harkin. "And it really made a difference." O'Neill wins award KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - House Speaker Thomas P. O'Neill Jr. has been named the 1986 recipient of the Harry S. Truman Good Neighbor Award, it was announced Saturday. The Massachusetts Democrat, who is retiring from Congress after his current term, will be honored at a luncheon here on May 8, Truman's birthday. coma, a cancer often associated with AIDS, but is showing no major symptoms. I fact, he said, "For the past several months I feel healthier than I have." "If you know any of my story, you know I don't have any use for what doctors say," Mason, 49, said Friday from her apartment here. "They told me Rocky was going to die before he was 6 and he lived 'til almost 17 doing some of the same things Joshua is doing now." Those things include holistic medical techniques designed to keep him from succumbing to the illnesses that kill AIDS victims, his mother said. Holistic medicine holds that the mind, body and spirit all combine to bring good health and that illness can be combatted by working on all three. Mason said her son is working on nutrition as well as metaphysical healing techniques that work to strengthen the mind and spirit. He may also seek acupuncture treatment, she said, insisting he does not have to die. "I'm just an optimistic person," she said. "I understand a lot of things most people won't even look at." "I think he's healthier now than he's been in years," said Mason. While her assertion that her son won't succumb to AIDS may not be backed up by doctors, Mason remains unmoved. "What you believe works. The universe will support anything you choose to believe," she said. "I'm not going to feed negative energy into the situation. If I fed negative energy into Rocky's situation he'd have died before he was 6." Joshua agrees. "Being sad is not being very healing," he said. "What you think is what you create for your lives. If you think sad or angry thoughts, you just create turmoil for yourself." "There is no death. The body may die, but the spiritlives on," he said. Mason moved to San Francisco in 1979, a year after Rocky's death. Last January, she said, Joshua's former lover died of AIDS. Chuck Frutchey of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation said that few AIDS victims live more than four years after they are diagnosed as having the disease. The virus can be transmitted by sexual contact, the sharing of contaminated needles by intravenous drug abusers, transfusions of blood or blood products, or infection from mother to child.
