(Staff photo) Sale Of Savings Bonds Suspended By Treasury WASHINGTON (UPIi - The Treasury Department Saturday suspended the saie of U.S. Savings Bonds, saying it cannol issue new debt obligations until Congress increases the national debt ceiling. The 1977 debt ceiling was $700 billion, but that expired at 12:(it Sept. 30 when the 1978 fiscal year began. Congress is still working on a replacement. The House has , approved a S773 billion ceiling tor one year and the Senate Friday voted a $752 billion ceiling for six months, but those differences must be resolved before a final bill is sent to the White House. Until the new ceiling is set, the government technically cannot pay its bills or meet payrolls, but in practical terms, lack of a debt ceiling will make little difference if Congress sends a final bill to President Carter within the next two weeks. In the meantime, the Treasury Department said it has no authority to issue bonds. ."In the absence of legislation to increase" the public debt limit, tht government lacks authority to issue new debt obligations," a spokesman said. Until the debt ceiling is raised, the Treasury Department also will be unable' to complete scheduled transactions involving so-called special arbitrage securities which are issued in the refunding of tax exempt bond issues LENON'S MUSIC M 2 S 6th SI PIANOS AND ORGANS SdUS AND SERVICE KIMBALL PIANOS AND ORGANS HAMMOND ORGANS BALDWIN PIANOS r 7534684 h by state and local governments.

GOP Name Change Proposal Tabled NEW ORLEANS <UPIi~ : Republican''leaders found Saturday the' 'question of changing the party's name is an issue almost too'emotional to confront. A proposal by .North Carolina GOP National Committeeman John-East to order a study of a party name-change along with other proposals lo improve the GOP image, was tabled at a meeting of the national party's Rules Review Commill.ee. East made the proposal for a study only, saying mat in many- parts of the South'"it (the name I is a massive burden that we bear." He said in North Carolina "it is just as appropriate that you be anti-Republican as it is that you be a Baptist." But representatives of two parties which have altered the Republican label — Minnesota and the Virgin Islands — saying using words like ^progressive" or "independent" with the Republican name did nol ap- pear to help. Vern Neppl. the Minnesota GOP chairman, said his Independent Republican "elected the least number-of people to office in history" under its new label in 1976. But he noted Republicans have picked up one congressional and several legislative seats in 1977. Melvin Evans, Virgin Islands national commilteeman. said adding "progressive""didn't help" and he did not think the news media would "let us get away with n." But several committet members joined East in saying there would be no harm ir studying a name change alone with other steps that might be taken to change any negative "perception" the voters have oi the Republican party. However. East's" motion u, begin a study was put aside when questions arose about tlw committee's authority to go into the matter and spend money for such research. Jo-An A fabric/' Of The lea/on!
