PaceA-2 THE NEWS, Frederick, Maryland 11. lf» Senate Set To Confirm WASHINGTON (AP) - Ellipt U Richardson appears certain of Senate confirmation as secretary erf Health, Education and Welfare, but a major administration program he inherits with the job could be more of a problem. The Senate Finance Committee called Richardson in today to start the confirmation proceedings with all indications pointing to a friendly reception to his appointment to succeed Robert H. Finch. But there were few signs of agreement on President Nixon's welfare reform program, even though the White House rewrote the plan to counter Senate opposition. Nixon resubmitted the reform .package Wednesday after the Finance Committee told Finch six weeks ago to rewrite the proposal to make sure the plan would not discourage welfare recipients from working. Nixon outlined revisions centering on an overhaul of the food stamp program and a new health insurance system for U. S. Lowers Flag Over Libyan Base TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) - Several hundred Libyans stood silent today as the American flag came slowly down for the last time at Wheelus Air Base and -a Libyan band played the Star Spangled Banner. Then they applauded and j cheered as the green, black and , red flag of Libya rose briskly to j the top of the pole to the roar of j a 21-gun salute.

Nixon, in his revised message, said his family assistance program indeed offered incentives to the poor to work, although he did not spell them out The revised version left intact the basic provision of the original administration plan: A yearly family assistance system providing a family of four * 1,600 a year in federal cash benefits, with subsidies continuing on a sliding scale until household income passes $3,920. There was evidence the new Nixon message would not satisfy Senate critics. While conservatives have complained about work incentives, the cost of the program, and the expansion of welfare rolls, liberals have proposed rival programs to offer higher benefits.
