Pane 12 Garden City Telegram Friday, December 22, 1978 Washington Today PEANUTS Liberal Leaders Are Irked By JAMES CERSTENZANG Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP)-The scene is likely to be repeated more and more as President Carter moves closer and closer to final decisions on the new federal budget: The leaders of one liberal group or another, after conferring with the president or one of his senior aides, are standing in the White House driveway. Stamping their feet and rubbing their hands against the icy winter weather, they complain to a circle of reporters about the treatment they are getting at the hands of a Democratic administration bent on turning in a tight budget to fight inflation. While they conduct their impromptu, but predictable news conference — there have been two such sessions in the past two weeks with black leaders—White House aides are busy trying to convice others that, in Carter's words, the administration will produce "a well-balanced budget and a fair budget." This is a period that Carter calls the most difficult in the Kissinger 'Unveiled' With en Added Quip WASHINGTON (AP) — Henry Kissinger's portrait, unveiled at a State Department ceremony, prompted the former secretary of state to quip: "They've painted out the scepter." Wednesday's unveiling showed Kissinger sitting in a chair holding a document. The portrait, by J. Anthony Willis of Houston, will be displayed with those of other former secretaries of state. "It's an excellent likeness," Kissinger joked, "swelled head and all." seasons of the presidency. It is a period when leaders of business, union officials, representatives of minorities, women and veterans traipse into the White House to seek a share of the federal pie. It is a period when, in the words of one administration official whose job involves trying to placate everyone, "you have the traditional problem" of agency chiefs laying budgetary problems at the doorsteps of their neighbors. Carter, meanwhile, has been making an apparent effort to calm the fears of liberals, who were never the backbone of his support. Throughout recent weeks, Carter's speeches have been spiced with language that can't hurt his standing among liberals—those most likely to complain when he submits his tight budget proposals that he is overlooking pressing social needs of the country. His appearance at the Democratic Party's midterm conference in Memphis gave him several opportunities to make his point. Consider, for example, his words to a group gathered to talk about the economy and inflation: "If I do make a mistake on the budget it will be on the side of those who are most dependent on the government, the poor and the deprived and the disadvantaged who are looking for a better life and who can only find a better life, in my opinion, with a Democratic administration." How about curbing the arms race with a strategic arms limitation treaty? "I contemplate a much more drastic cut in overall missile levels of all kinds in SALT III than we will be able to accomplish in SALT II." So, while Carter's budget cutters have been putting the ax to his spending proposals, and rumors circulate that social welfare programs are being skinned back, the president is busily letting those with possible complaints know that he is still on their side, even if the money isn't.
