LEIGH HAS been publicly
disagreeing with Pinochet's policies for
more than a year, but the catalyst for
his ouster was an interview he gave last
week to an Italian newspaper reporter.
He demanded that Pinochet end cen-
sorship of the press, restore the ih-
dependence of the judiciary and right of
habeas corpus, divide executive and
legislative powers and set a timetable
The country remained quiet. Leigh
said he planned to challenge his ouster

WASHINGTON (AP) - The House
Ways and Means Committee voted
yesterday to exempt from income taxes
any increases in property values
caused by inflation.
The action could end a three-month
stalemate and clear the way' for com-
mittee action on an across-the-board
tax reduction for individuals and
businesses. But that is far from certain
because of efforts to further reduce
federal taxes on capital gains, which
are profits from the sale of assets held
for a year or more.
The panel earlier in the day refused
to vote an income-tax credit to help of-
fset the higher Social Security taxes
that take effect next year. And it rejec-
ted an effort to limit business deduc-
tions for what President Carter has
called "the three-martini lunch."
BY A 21-16 VOTE, the committee ap-
proved an amendment by Rep. William
Archer, (R-Tex.), that seeks to ensure
that a piece of property whose value is
pushed up by inflation is not taxed as if
the gain were real.
It was not clear whether the commit-
tee would treat the Archer plan as an
alternative to broader reductions in
capital-gains taxes or as an addition to
such tax relief.
But Rep. James Jones, (D-Okla.),
sponsor of the most popular capital-
gains bill, told reporters he does not see
the Archer vote as a challenge to his
own tax package.
THE CAPITAL-GAINS issue, the
most difficult facing the committee,
has blocked tax-action since April. A
majority of the 37-member panel ap-
parently favors the Jonesrbill, which
seeks to provide greater incentive to
investors by cutting the tax on capital
gains. Rep. Al Ullman, (D-Ore.),
chairman of the committee, insists that
the panel resolve the taxation of capital
gains issue before moving on to other
Carter opposes the Jones measure on
grounds that the great majority of the
tax benefit would go to Americans ear-
ning $100,000 a year or more.
Current law allows preferential tax
treatment for capital gains, such as
profits from the sale of stock or land
owned for a year or more.
In many cases, Archer contended, the
"profit" is illusory - due more to in-
flation than toa real increase in value.
