WASHINGTON -- Wrestling with the effects of a sluggish economy and of the corrosive scandal at its national association this year, officials at the United Way say they fear that 1992 will bring the sharpest decline in donations in more than 40 years.The early returns from the fall campaigns of 2,200 local United Ways are mixed, but individual fund-raisers in several large metropolitan areas say the overall numbers are dipping below those of earlier years. Total contributions fell in each of the last two years, but, adjusted for inflation, there has not been a decline since World War II.In Cleveland, pledges are down about 9 percent, from $51.3 million in 1991 to $46.3 million this year.

A measure of U.S. mortgage applications fell for a second week after reaching an eight-month high at mid-month, an industry group said Wednesday. The Mortgage Bankers Association's index declined 2.1 percent to 1091.3 last week. The Washington group's index of applications for mortgages to buy homes dropped 1.1 percent to 443.8. Mortgage rates that are close to last year's record low are bringing more homebuyers into the market and encouraging a new round of refinancing. Sales of new and existing homes rose last month, and the National Association of Realtors said last month that it may raise its forecast for this year's resales.
