Do it again, Jerry
W know Jerry Ford has gotten flak for tripping down airplane
ramps, falling down ski slopes and hitting standers-by with golf balls, but
this one is just too much. In a note to a Italeigh, N.C. attorney, Gerald
Bass, Ford made a plea for his support for U.S. Sen. Jesse Helms (R-
N.C.) in his i'e-election bid next year. But the tone of Ford's letter hardly
seemed to convey the idea of a sincere goodwill mission. The letter
opened with "Dear Mr. Ass," and the "B" in Bass was left out throughout
the rest of it. "The kicker was the last sentence,". Bass said, laughing. "It
said: "With kindest regards, Mr. Ass, I am sincerely, Gerald R. Ford.'"
In effect, though, Bass told Jerry where to put it - he is a Democrat and
says he probably will not be supporting the Republican Helms.

be the low. Happy Halloween, anyway.

WASHINGTON (AP)-Congress is
considered sure to pass a bill imposing
massive new Social Security taxes to
shore up the depleted system, although
the amount of such taxes has not been
Enactment of the legislation is likely
by the end of the year. The Social
Security bill has second priority, with
only energy legislation ahead of it, as
Congress moves toward adjournnent
next month.
THE HOUSE PASSED its bill Thur-
sday and the Senate Finance Commit-
tee is almost finished preparing its ver-
sion. Senate floor action could come as
early as the coming week. That would
be followed by a conference committee
to reconcile differences between the
two versions.
Both President Carter and
Democratic leaders in Congress want a
bill passed this year. Carter has

delayed presenting his proposal for a
general #x cut until after seeing the
exact sizt the Social Security tax in-
crease. ,
However, Rep. Al Ullman (D-Ore.),,
chairman of the House Ways and
Means Committee who will be one of
the conferees, said the conference
might continue into January.
THE OUTCOME IS sure to mean a
massive increase in Social Security
taxes, made necessary by the financial
troubles of the program. Without new
taxes on the 104 million workers who
pay the levy, benefits for the 33 million
recipients would be imperiled.
Under the House passed bill, Social
Security taxes for some American
workers would more than triple in the
next decade. The maximum tax, now
$965 per year, would jump to $3,025 by
The increases would be most dramatic

for upper-income employees, but all
workers who pay Social Security tax
would have to pay more. For exam-
ple, someone earning $10,000 annually
will pay $585 this year but $710 ten year-
s from now.
The financial crisis for Social
Security is caused by a sharp decline in
the birth rate along with an increase in
average life expectancy and a trend
toward earlier retirement.
These factors mean that a smaller
percentage of the population is paying
the tax and a greater portion is drawing
the benefits. Thus, higher taxes are
necessary to maintain benefit levels,
which go up automatically with the cost
of living.
There are now more than three
workers contributing to the system for
every beneficiary. During the next cen-
tury it is expected to be down to only
about, two workers financing each
Deficits during the last three years
have led to predictions that the system
would go broke within a few years
without new funding.
Carter said during his campaign
that one of his first priorities would be
to address the crisis in Social Security
and restore the public's confidence in
the system's financial viability.

Soviet Unio n marks
60 communist years,

MOSCOW (AP)-The Soviet Union
marks 60 years of communism this
week secure in its status as a super'
power but far from realizing the
dreams of the Bolshevik revolution.
Despite-or perhaps because of-its
military might, the U.S.S.R. lags
behind the West and even some East
European countries in such critical
areas as industry, agriculture, science
and technology.
IN MANY WAYS it is a developing
country, lacking many of the facilities
common to smaller industrial nations
and anxious to obtain Western products
and plants.
On the political side, the Kremlin of-
ten uses heavy-handed tactics to sup-
press dissent.
But these problems and practices will
not be the focus of the anniversary ob-
servance. Instead the aging leadership
in the Kremlin will stress the positive
in observances culminating with the
traditional parade in Red Square Nov.
THE SOVIETS ARE expected to con-
tinue playing down the military display
in the parade in line with their policy of
calling for an end to the arms race and
a decrease in military spending.
Western diplomats with long Soviet
experience acknowledge there have
been genuine achievements in recent
years. But they often remark on the
contrast between the reality of Soviet
life and the picture drawn by the of-
