Eastern Michigan coed Karen Sue Beineman's battered body was found Saturday. She was the eighth young woman found murdered in the Ypsilanti-Ann Arbor area in just over two years. ^ Blame Data Errors by Agencies apparent center Monday of the investigation into the latest slaying of a young woman in the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti area. Meanwhile, the university she attended took precautions to protect other coeds. Wafthtenaw County Prosecutor William F. Deltey said that for the first time he had definite proof that Karn Sac Beineman, 18, whose nude body, strangled and beaten, was found Saturday, got on a motorcycle Wednesday, the day she was lait seen, with a young man about 22. Delhey confirmed that he ordered a department store dum my planted on the outskirts of Ann Arbor at the spot where Miss Beineman's body .was dis ;overed in hope that the killer might return to the scene. He said one man walked into the midst of the six detectives watching the site, but escaped on foot after he was ordered to stop. Delhey BUDGET- Continued jrmn Page One personal income, which has been setting new records. Total receipts for fiscal 1969 were placed at $187,843,000,000, h expenditures at $184,769,000,000. The surplus of almost $3.1 billion contrasted with a deficit of $25.4 billion in fiscal 1968, for an unprecedented "swing" of $28.5 billion in the federal fiscal pjcturc. This change from .deficit to surplus is the main factor, along with tighter money, causing the economy to slow down. Some economists have sug- ralc lax payments, compared with the May 20 estimate. Receipts from personal income taxes were $2.8 billion, while corporate tax payments were down $1.4 billion. Some government officials blame the net underestimate of the tax "take" on "traditional Treasury conservatism." The Budget Bureau, for its part, estimated expenditures on May 20 at $900 million higher than the final count. An official said that the error was due to "taking agency ceilings as they stated them." Thus, spending by the Housing and Urban Development agency was $480 mil lion less than the agency said it would be, much of it for the gested that the slow-down may Motlc i cit j es program. culminate in a recession, a worry that currently is being reflected in a decline in securities prices.

Waves of Israeli planes raided Egyptian positions at Port Tewfik, Deversoir and Altinah along the old waterway, the broadcast said, and the Skyhawk was downed by anti-aircraft guns. Israeli planes also clashed with Egyptian MIGs in a dogfight over the''northern part of the canal, a military spokesman in Tel Aviv said. Neither side lost planes in the encounters and all the Israeli planes returned safely, the Israeli spokesman said. Israeli Counterblow An Israeli counterblow against the Egyptian front lines had been expected after a brief hit-and-run strike Sunday by E g y p t i a n fighter-bombers against Israeli positions in northwestern Sinai. The Israeli raid came only an hour after the International Three Jordanian soldiers, including a captain, were killed Sunday night when several formations of Israeli fighter planes attacked a military post at Irbid, Jordan, a military spokesman in Amman said Monday. He said 12 other soldiers were wounded — four seriously — and six army vehicles damaged in the 25 minute strike on the town, about 53 miles north of Amman. U.N.

The call came following the death Sunday of a Swedish observer caught in Israeli artillery fire. Maj. Bo Roland Plane was the first U.N. observer killed in the Suez Canal sector since fighting became a daily occurrence in March. A spokesman said Secretary General U Thant "was considering the matter most seriously." The Burmese chief has twice told the security council he may recommend withdrawal of the observers if their safety cannot be guaranteed by Israel and Egypt. The state department in Washington Monday called for greater protection for the 92 observers on both sides of the waterway and another 92 in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. A department spokesman added Washington was "watching with concern" the continued between Israel and tion between the agencies and the Budget Bureau, an official said.
