NEA Not Damaged: John E. Frohnmayer, chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, bristled at suggestions Thursday that last year's battle over alleged federal support for obscene art had damaged his agency and the prestige of its grants. To the notion that the endowment "is weakened or its grants besmirched," he said, "I reject that categorically." Frohnmayer was testifying at a House appropriations subcommittee hearing on the NEA's proposed $174-million budget for next year.
