Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg (D-N.J.) underwent surgery to treat a head injury from a skiing accident a month ago. Lautenberg, 79, fell and hit his head while skiing in Aspen, Colo., a spokesman said. He had had a low-grade headache since then. He checked himself into a New York hospital late Saturday. Doctors found blood had collected in an area inside the senator's skull that required surgery to drain. The spokesman said Lautenberg would need two days to recover.

Frank R. Lautenberg, at 78 the Democrats' brand-new Senate candidate from New Jersey, tackled the age question head-on Sunday, salsa-dancing his way through the annual Hispanic State Parade in heavily Latino--and heavily Democratic--Union City.

At a news conference, the president attributed the opportunity for a speedup to an economy that is even stronger than had been forecast, resulting in higher tax revenue and lower expenses, and to his own austere budget policies.
