Rebate trouble
WASHINGTON - President
Carter's $50-per-person tax re-
bate-plan ran into trouble in
Congress yesterday. Key Demo-
crats called it wasteful and Sen-
ate Republicans endorsed a per-
manent across-the-board tax cut
instead.
Carter's economic spokesmen
defended his proposal as the
best and quickest method of
pumping up the economy. Rep.
Al Ullman, (D-Ore.), chairman
of the House Ways and, Means
Committee, said the rebate is
virtually certain to win approv-
al.
But the 38 Republican sena-
tors, liberals and conservatives
alike, unanimously agreed to op-
pose the rebate, calling it a
pep pill and a gimmick.
A4ded Ito those 38, the sev-
eral Democratic senators who
prefer pouring the $11.4 billioi
cost of the rebates into jobs
programs, spells trouble for the
Carter plan.
The Senate Republican pro-
posal for stimulating the econo-
my is built around an across-
the-board cut in individual tax
rates of about 7.5 per cent on
the first $18,000 of taxable-in-
come.
This would mean lower taxes
for most Americans, no matter
how little or how much they
earn.

Nader protests
WASHINGTON - Despite a
drive within Congress for hiĀ§
resignation or impeachmerit;
Federal Trade Commissioner
Paul Rand Dixon says the is-
sue of his ethnic attack against
Ralph Nader ought to be closed
but, in any case, he will not
step aside.
Dixon,who called Nader "a
son of a bitch and a dirty Arab,"
at an industry meeting two
weeks ago, formally apologized
Tuesday to an Arab-American
group which had protested the
remark to the White House.
Even so, there were rumbles
in both the House and Senate
for Dixon to depart his commis-
sion post, one which he has held
16 years, including several as
chairman.
Sen. Abraham Ribicoff, (D-
Conn.), declared that "No in-
dividual should continue to serve
in any position of public trust
who has demonstrated such poor
judgment and lack of sensitivi-
. ty."
To that, Dixon responded that
"I can't keep anybody up on the
hill from doing what they want
to do. But I think the matter
ought to be closed, myself."
Nader, meanwhile, was not
satisfied, noting that Dixon
chose to direct his apology only
to the Arab-American organiza-
tion.
Dixon said he considered that
his statement of regret applied
to Nader, too, and "he has the

apology fof which he is justi-
fied."
Nader, the nation's best-known
consumer advocate, and spokes-
man for Arab organizations also
remained dissatisfied over the
lack of comment on the issue
from President Carter.
Pay raise
WASHINGTON - The Senate
yesterday refused to block hef-
ty pay raises for members of
Congress and other top govern-
ment officials.
The vote, 56 to 42, came on
a motion by Majority Leader
Robert Byrd to kill an amend-
ment proposed by Sen. James
Allen, (D-Ala.), Who had called
the congressional pay raises of
close to 30 per cent a "terrific
ripoff of the American taXpay-
ers."
Allen had paved the way for
the vote by tacking an amend-
ment on the pay raises to a,
measure restructuring the Sen-'
ate's committee system.
The amendment would have
blocked pay raises scheduled
not only for, members of the
House and Senate, but also for
high-level executive branch of-,

ficials and federal judges.
The raises were recommend-
ed by President Carter and sup-
ported by former President Ger-
ald Ford.
Allen indicated he would make
another attempt later to prevent
the salary increases from tak -,
ing effect.
State
Lay-offs
DETROIT - Weather-related
layoffs eased in the auto indus-
try yesterday, but future plant
shutdowns loomed because of
developing parts shortages.
Nearly 94,000 workers at 37
"Big Three" auto plants in 11i
states were idle or working short
shifts, down from 113,000 Tues-
day.
In Michigan, General Motors
was the only one of the com-
panies affected, with nearly 14,-
000 of its at five assembly plants
either off the job or working cur-
tailed shifts.
School (id
LANSING- State School Su-

perintendent John Porter- said
yesterday the state should bor-
row $250 million so it can make
all state school aid payments
to colleges and universities on
time. 's
The Michigan Department of
Treasury said last month it will
delay half of February state aid
payments to schools until July
because of cash flow problems.
Porter said the decision will
force some school districts and
colleges and universities to bor-
row money to meet payrolls.
"It would cost less in inter-
est for the state to borrow $250
million that it would cost school
districts to borrow the same
Iamount," Porter said.

David' Bowie stars as Newton, the interstellar traveler whose
moral decline is undermined by the omnipresent intelligence
organization that corrupts the humans whom he trusts. Nicholas
Roeg (PERFORMANCE, DON'T LOOK NOW) skillfully threads
themes of greed, success, and devotion through a world whose
atmosphere grows increasingly synthetic and decayed through
electronic gadgetry and alcoholic welisprings. Subtle performances
and beautiful cinematography provide for great science fiction.

Probably not.All things considered you do
what you do pretty doggone well. After all, no one
has taken your job. And you'reeating regularly.
But...
But have you ever considered what doing your
job just a little better might mean?
Money. Cold hard coin of the realm.
If each of us cared just a smidge more about
what we do for a living, we could actually turn that
inflationary spiral around. Better products, better
service and better management would mean savings
for all of us. Savings of much of the cash and frayed
nerves it's costing us now for repairs and inefficiency.
Point two..By taking more pride in our work
we'll more than likely see America regaining its
strength in the competitive world trade arena. When
the balance of payments swings our way again we'll
all be better off economically.
So you see-the only person who can really
do what you do any better is you.
