Reagan to Voters: 'Do it Again' WASHINGTON (AP) - President Reagan is launching a new budget campaign with a call to the voters to "do it again" and convince Congress to line up for his economic program. Reagan summoned congressional Republicans to the White House today and planned to meet with prospective Democratic allies Monday in an apparent attempt to reassemble the coalition that delivered his first round of tax and budget cuts last year. A White House spokesman said that about three hours after the president's speech, 2,967 telephone calls had been received and most of them - 2,352 -supported Reagan. However, results of a Washington Post-ABC News poll published today by the Post indicated that 59 percent of those interviewed wanted Congress to make substantial changes in Reagan's budget proposals, with 28 percent opposed. And by a 58-35 margin, the Post said, those surveyed wanted Reagan to drop his proposal for social budget and tax cuts and try something else. Sen. Bob Dole, R-Kan., said he ex- pected Reagan to hold fast to overall targets of $122 billion in tax increases over three years and a $28 billion cutback in his proposed defense buildup. Dole, who took part in a month of secret, talks that failed to produce a compromise budget agreement, said he hopes Congress can agree swiftly on at least a partial package of measures aimed at reducing fiscal 1983 budget deficits. Dole wants Congress to pass the measures as part of a debt limit bill expected to reach the House and Senate floors by June. In a nationally broadcast address Thursday night, the president told the public to let "your representatives know that you think this is no time for politics as usual - that you, too, want an end to runaway taxes, spending, government debt and high interest rates." "You did it once - you can do it again," Reagan said. With the first budget Reagan submitted to Congress this year all but forgotten - and efforts to find a bipartisan alternative to it in shambles - Reagan said he intends "to forge the beginnings of an acceptable budget initiative." Congressional Democrats, however, said Reagan's strategy will not work this year and will succeed only in tying Congress in knots. Rep. Richard Boiling of Missouri, giving the Democrats' broadcast response immediately after Reagan's speech, said the president was being ton politic j! and making an appeal that threatens u> deadlock Congress on the budget issue Saturday 8:30 a.m.-Sports Break fast, Lee-Jackson Banquet Room.

Mrs. Arthur will watch *ti Parade as she has done each year fi.'n a friend s homo on Washington Strc-et Festival Has Sunny Opening; Clouds Coming By JOHN HARTSOCK SUrSuttVknUr Sometimes it seems the weather is just plain perverse. Old Man Weather is threatening to be a spoiler this Shenandoah Valley Apple Blossom Festival weekend: Skies are expected to cloud up on Saturday, contrary to earlier weather forecasts � That's the latest forecast for the Winchester area provided by the National Weather Service ioSuiUand.Md. To add insult to injury, the clouds come on the heels of some of the best spring weather the area has enjoyed in recent years for the festival, with clear blue skies and temperatures in the mid-60s. Weather forecaster Larry Wenzel said this morning that today will continue to be sunny and mild with temperatures in the mid-60s. But skies will start clouding up tonight-with temperatures in the mid to upper 40s-as a new weather system arrives in the area. Wenzel said skies on Saturday morning will continue to be predominantly sunny but by afternoon "it will be more clouds than sun"-just in time for the Grand Feature Parade, which is one of the highlights of the festival. BUT WENZEL said there is no need to worry about rain during the parade, because there is only about a 20 percent chance Temperatures are expected to be in the mid to upper 60s Another bright note is that Sunday another weather system is expected to sweep through the area and while the morning is expected to he cloudy, the clouds will start clearing in the afternoon-just in time for the Sunday in the Park festivities at the Winchester city park. Temperatures are expected to be in the 60s on Sunday. In festival news, Elyse Dianne Knight, Queen Shenandoah-elect, opened the Clyde Beatty-Cole Brothers Circus on Thursday for its first performance by taking a ride on an elepahnt. This morning the carnival Midway on Piccadilly Street opened at 10 a.m. ALREADY by Thursday night rows of folding chairs were being lined on the city streets to accommodate parade watchers for tonight's Firefighters' Parade and \A\r Feature Parade Today's main events ir.cluue ttu Queen Shenandoah I.V ..!

He refused to disclose the whereabouts of the British armada, but when asked if British warships were ready to block any attempts by Argentina to penetrate the war zone, he replied: "I won't disagree with that." There was speculation in London of an attack later today by British carrier planes on the airfield at Stanley, the Falklands capital and the bridgehead for Argentina's airlift to the estimated 9,000 troops occupying the British island colony. With Argentina's ruling military junta refusing to pull back from the islands its forces seized April 2, Britain set the countdown clock running Wednesday with the announcement that it was expanding its 200-mile maritime blockade around the Falklands to the skies over the area at noon today - 7 a.m. EDT. The Argentine junta retaliated Thursday night with an immediate embargo against British ships and aircraft within 200 miles of the Argentine coast and for 200 miles around the Falklands and its dependencies, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands. It said British violators of these zones would be "treated accordingly." A spokesman for British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher said the Argentine declaration "cvt-s n��t (lur.^e Britain's position one iota W ing to our plans for a 2i�u-mile to'..:: e\ elusion zone " Mrs. Thatcher was urged again Thursday by the opposition Labor Party in the House of Commons to noid back the fleet and pursue diplomat "It would be highly dangerous io bluff in that way," she replied. "Gentle per suasion is not going to make the Argentine government give up wha1 it sei/vJ by force."

The circus, with its bigtop pitched in Rouss Park off Rt. 50 east in Winchester, gave the first of nine Festival-time performances Thursday. DETROIT (AP) - The tide of red ink engulfing the nation's auto industry ebbed dramatically in the first quarter of the year, and auto analysts say it's likely to keep receding. U.S. carmakers lost $600 million in the first quarter of 1981, but only $128.2 million in the first three months of this year, according to figures released this week. "Things will be a lot better than the last two years, but they still will be nothing to cheer about," said Harvey Helnbach, analyst at Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith, Inc. in New Vork. Arvid Jouppi, an analyst at Colin Hochstio Co. in Detroit, said improvements will be due mostly to cost-cutting, and if there is any upturn in sales it won't come until the third or fourth quarters. The analysts made their comments Thursday after Chrysler Corp. reported it made a $149.9 million profit in the first quarter of this year, chiefly because the sale of its defense subsidiary helped offset operating losses of $89.1 million. The profit by the No. 3 U.S. carmaker, which was bailed out of near- bankruptcy by federal loan guarantees and worker concessions, was the highest in the quarter among the four major U.S. automakers. Earlier this week, General Motors Corp., the biggest, reported a profit of $124.3 million, while Ford Motor Co. said it lost $355.4 million and American Motors Corp. reported a $51 million loss. The automakers lost $1.3 billion in 1981 and $4.2 billion in 1980. Heinbach and Arthur Davis, analyst at Prescott, Ball & Turben in Cleveland, predicted GM would continue to show quarterly profits through this year. Rapacritit - contact CONCERN 667-0145.
