Official says defense may avoid cuts WICHITA — Sizable defense spending cuts aren't inevitable despite budget-balancing legislation enacted by Congress last month, Air Force Secretary Russell Rourke said Wednesday. "There are cynics in the city of Washington who will say, 'Give up while the giving's good. You've had it. You had four or five good years over at Defense now it's time to eat the apple. You don't have a prayer. Your budget is going to be cut to ribbons.' "Rourkesaid. "The president of the United States didn't accept that. Your majority leader in the Senate didn't accept it. I don't accept it." Rourke spoke at a press conference after a brief tour of McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita. President Reagan's fiscal 1987 budget will provide for 3 percent real growth for the Department of Defense, said Rourke, 54, who became Air Force secretary in December after serving as the Pentagon's chief lobbyist for more than four years. The secretary said the Reagan administration's defense buildup will continue. Asked to guarantee that McConnell will be kept open and will receive 16 B-lb bombers as scheduled starting in 1987, Rourke said, "As sure as taxes are and death, and you can guarantee Russell Rourke yourself on both of those." There had been concern about McConnell's status because it was included on a March list of 22 bases the Pentagon said could be closed to cut military spending without affecting national security. Rourke acknowledged the Graham-Rudman- Hollings federal budget reduction law would force the Pentagon to carefully scrutinize programs still under development. "Some of those luxuries are going to be gone," he said. "And we're not going to be able to get everything that we think is absolutely needed for national-security." The secretary said a re-evaluation of defense projects would be complete in May or June. One of the programs being studied is a T-46 trainer contract the Air Force has with Fairchild Republic Co. of Long Island, N.Y. A Wichita manufacturer, Cessna Aircraft Co., has submitted an unsolicited proposal suggesting the cancellation of the contract in favor of refurbishing or building new T-37s, a trainer Cessna built. Russ Meyer, Cessna board chairman, attended Wednesday's press conference and said afterward he thinks the tightening of federal spending will help Cessna. He said T-37s produced by Cessna would cost the government about $2.1 million a plane for a total cost of about $1.2 billion. Meyer said the Fairchild T-46s will cost a total of $5 billion to produce.

STRONG CITY (AP) — Three people were killed in the fiery head- on collision of two tractor semi- trailer trucks on a U.S. 50 bridge east of Strong City before dawn Wednesday, the Kansas Highway Patrol said. "It appears the trucks exploded on impact, so there's no way anyone could have survived," said Sherry Meyers, a patrol dispatcher in Salina. The highway was closed between Strong City and Emporia until about 6:30 p.m. as workers cleared wreckage and debris from the bridge. The patrol identified the driver of one truck as Thomas Helton, 60, of Liberty, Mo. He was alone. The driver of the other truck was identified as James H. Woodard, 20, of Batesville, Ark. The identity of a passenger in his truck was not known, authorities said. Investigators said one of the trucks was hauling toys and other merchandise. The second truck was loaded with bricks of frozen meat. Some of the meat was found 50 yards from the crash site. . A firefighter at the scene said one of the drivers was thrown from his vehicle to the rear of the second truck. The driver and passenger in the second truck were trapped inside and burned beyond recognition, the firefighter said. Three volunteer fire departments in Chase County were at the scene several hours trying to bring the fire under control. Heavy smoke billow- Ing from the wreckage could be seen from several miles away and prevented emergency workers from getting close to the trucks. Cold weather caused fire hoses to freeze. The collision occurred on the same stretch of two-lane highway where seven people died in traffic accidents last year. The crashed occurred on a bridge over Peyton Creek that is being prepared for replacement later this year. Highway Patrol Superintendent Bert Cantwell was in Chase County Wednesday for a meeting with county officials and legislators to discuss the number of fatalities on the route and other matters. He went to the scene of the truck collision to inspect the road. The accident occurred about five miles east of Strong City. SRS official gets support for office smoking ban TOPEKA (AP) - Robert Harder, secretary of the state Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services, has won the first round in the battle over a smoking ban he has imposed in SRS offices throughout the state. The first challenge to Harder's edict came from some SRS employees, who contended it could not be enforced in the elevator lobby on the sixth floor of the State Office Building here — which is the floor occupied by the SRS central headquarters. The smokers argued the lobby area was a public area and technically not leased by SRS. But Harder took the position that becuase SRS occupies the entire sixth floor of the building, the elevator lobby area constituted SRS space and the smoking ban applied to it. The issue went to Marvin "Mike" Harder, state secretary of administration, for a ruling. Mike Harder, who is no relation to the SRS secretary, agreed with Robert Harder. That means the smoking ban remains in force in the entire sixth floor of the State Office Building, as well as in non-public areas of SRS facilities throughout Kansas. While other state agencies have not followed Robert Harder's lead so far, some are expected to follow suit once they see how his order is received by workers and how challenges are resolved. Harder said he has received no requests from any SRS employees to modify his order, which took effect Jan. 1. "This policy has been bumped around for a number of months and, while in an agency as big as this not everyone would have been in a position to learn or know of it, we at least got the word to all our key administrators about what we would be doing," he said. "Our position has already been modified slightly. Originally, we said the smoking ban would apply to patients in our institutions as well, and we've backed off from that." Sabol grants waiver on nursing home rule For your information TOPEKA (AP) — Barbara Sabol, secretary of the state Department of Health and Environment, Wednesday agreed to wait until July 1,1988, to implement a state mandate that requires nursing homes to provide 24- hour licensed nursing care. The legislative committee that reviews rules and regulations drafted by state agencies had suggested Tuesday that the department postpone for an additional year a requirement that Kansas nursing homes provide round-the-clock care by licensed nurses. A shortage of licensed nurses was the reason for seeking the additional delay, said state Rep. J. Santford Duncan, R-Wichita. Starting July 1, 1986, nursing homes are supposed to provide the 24-hour care by licensed nurses. However, after they applied for a waiver, they automatically were given a grace period until July 1, 1987, to provide the licensed nurse care. After July 1, 1988, no additional waivers will be granted, said Bob Moody, a Health and Environment Department spokesman. "She has agreed to the committee's recommendation," Moody Oklahoman faces trial OTTAWA (AP) — A Custer City, Okla., truck driver was bound over for trial Wednesday on charges he robbed and tied up two people at an I- 35 rest stop in eastern Kansas on New Year's Eve. Larry K. Crawford, 40, was to be arraigned today on charges of aggravated kidnapping, aggravated robbery, aggravated assault and kidnapping. Correction Because of a Journal error, a municipal court item in Wednesday's edition incorrectly listed the address of Donald R. Smith. Smith's address is 1101 N. Seventh. Robert E. Denman, 70,1927 Page, who died Tuesday, is survived by two grandchildren. The information on survivors was omitted in an obituary published Wednesday. said. "The secretary felt the recommendation met her objective of establishing a definite time frame for requiring the 24-hour nursing care in the homes. "But as of July 1,1988, there will be no more waivers." The nursing home industry is divided whether the two-year delay is needed. The Kansas Health Care Association, a group of about 250 profit- making nursing homes, says the two- year period is needed to study problems related the 24-hour nursing coverage. The Kansas Association of Homes for the Aging, a group of 70 non-profit homes, contends the delay is unnecessary. Both groups agree the 24-hour coverage is needed, but differ over the financial effects on nursing homes. The department estimates it will cost the nursing homes $2 million a year in added costs.
