CHENEY CALLS FOR CUTS IN STAR WARS

Defense Secretary Dick Cheney is calling for cuts in proposed ``star wars'' spending and a delay in the B-2 Stealth bomber to meet the $299.2 billion Pentagon budget the Bush administration and congressional leaders have agreed upon. Mr. Cheney, in a television interview over the weekend, also said President Bush has decided to move ahead with two kinds of mobile strategic missiles, combining the MX and the Midgetman missiles in the nation's defense.
