Tax cut
wiped out
by social
security

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - Americans will get
a slight cut in federal income taxes next
year but for most workers the reduction
will be wiped out by higher Social
Security taxes.
The reduction in income taxes will
result from implementation of the "in-
dexing" law that was enacted in 1981 to
reduce inflation's effects on the tax
system. Indexing will adjust the tax
system automatically every year to
prevent "bracket creep" - the
phenomenon that pushes a taxpayer in-
to a higher tax bracket when he or she
receives a pay raise to offset an in-
crease inliving costs.
The Labor Department yesterday

established the limits of the 1985 tax cut
when it announced that the Consumer
Price Index had increased by 4.1 per-
cent during the 12 months that ended
Sept. 30. That same announcement
triggered a 3.5 percent increase in
Social Security benefits next year and
set the stage for a boost in the taxes that
finance the giant pension system.
Sen William Armstrong (R-Colo.)
author of the indexing provision, hailed
the announcement.
"Tax indexing is finally here and with
it comes tax reform for middle
America, a more honest and fair tax
law, and an end to the government's
profit from inflation," Armstrong said.

his personal experiences from the Viet-
nam war to make his point before the
150 people gathered there.
"The protests of the Vietnam war
began at colleges with teach-ins, so we
too now must spread the realities of
what the U.S. has done in these little
countries.
THE LUNCHTIME rally fell between
the day's two sessions of panel
discussions and lectures covering a
variety of issues relating to Central
America.
Dean Baker, a graduate student in
economics and member of LASC, said,
"We're not too concerned with the out-
come of the presidential election regar-
ding our issue. If Reagan wins, there
will definitely be an invasion in Central
America, and if Mondale, maybe."

BOSTON (AP) - Forget ghouls and
goblins. This Halloween, the owner of
the country's largest costume shop says
Reagan and Nixon masks are selling
like crazy, along with Michael Jackson
gloves at $14.95 a shot.
Mr. T and his gold chains are very
popular, but remarkably few
customers want to look like Walter
Mondale or Geraldine Ferraro.
"REAGAN IS a very, very big seller.
I say we sell about 12 a day, even more
than that," David Bertolino said
yesterday at his store, Little Jack Hor-
ner, Inc. "The other day someone from
Mondale headquarters came down and
bought a Reagan mask. Don't know.
what they plan to do with it.
"And Nixon is hot. Easily as popular
as Reagan," Bertolino continued. "I
guess people still love to hate him.
Sometimes they come in and buy the
Nixon mask and then buy handcuffs or
a ball-and-chain to go with it."
This year is Little Jack Horner's 50th
year in business in downtown Boston.
As usual, says Bertolino, political
costumes are making him money. The
masks of President Reagan and former
President Nixon sell for $25 to $40,
depending on the amount of detail in the
disguise.
THE STORE has sold out its 1,200
masks of Massachusetts Sen. Edward
Kennedy, but still has a few John Ken-
nedy masks available.
Yesterday, one went to a

professional-looking young man who
refused to identify himself. He told Ber-
tolino he planned to spend Halloween as
"Jack Kennedy for Reagan."
"I got the idea while I was watching
the news last night," the man said,
referring to a recently publicized letter
from Reagan to Nixon written in 1960.
In the letter, Reagan compared Ken-
nedy's ideas to those of Karl Marx and
Adolf Hitler.
"I'm going with two friends who are
dressing up as Marx and Hitler," said
the man. "It's a joke - get it? Kennedy
for Reagan."
"Oh, yes, I see. Very funny," said
Bertolino with a shrug. A Republican
himself, he has grown accustomed to
the gamut of political persuasions.
He was prepared to order 5,000 masks
of Democratic presidential challenger
Walter Mondale several months ago,
but then decided against it. "If he
doesn't win, I'm stuck with thousands

of Mondales staring at me. Then I've
got to hope then that someone down the
line looks like him," he said.
"You have to stick by the numbers
and the polls," he said. "We don't take
any party lines. We just order what
they are asking for."
So far, he says, only a few people
have sought a Mondale mask or one of
his running mate.
