Carter attacks GOP's tax cut;
Reagan doubts inflation figures
From United Press International
The nation's economy was the
political battleground yesterday.
President Carter called his op-
ponent's tax-cut plan, which also calls
for a balanced budget, "quicksilver
economics," and Ronald Reagan ac-
cused the president of "jimmying" in-
CARTER WAS on a day-long trip to
Wisconsin and Illinois-two states he
narrowly lost four years ago and again
trails in the polls. Reagan spoke in
Camden, N.J., the first stop on a week-
long cross-country effort ending Satur-
day in Los Angeles.
Reagan's proposal to cut taxes, in-
crease defense spending, balance the

index to make the economic outlook
look brighter for political purposes.
HE SAID THE government had ad-

He called the one-time change a
"cruel hoax," and said it represented a

Independent candidate John Ander-
son, meanwhile, was in Chicago-vir-
tually ignoring Reagan while stepping
up a blistering series of attacks on Car-
ter. He likened the president's cam-
paign tactics to the "dirty tricks"
pulled by Richard Nixon's campaign in
He ticked off a list of tactics he said
the Carter campaign has used against
him, including actions to keep him off
state ballots, the refusal to debate, and
a legal memo that banks might have
legal problems if they lent money to the
