WASHINGTON (UPI)-The White
House yesterday opened the door to
compromise on President Reagan's
three-year cut in tax rates-a proposal
that Republican House leader Bob,
Michel says does not have the votes to
"We have always said we are willing
to listen," Speakes said.
HE SAID REAGAN still believes his
proposed 10 percent cut in individual
tax rates for each of three years is the
best plan. But Speakes' remarks in-
dicated a softening of the earlier
presidential statement, "This is no time
An administration official said the
president is still adamant in keeping a
multi-year proposal rather than the
one-year tax plan proposed by
Democrats. But the official said today
there is room for bargaining on other
specifics of the tax rate reduction
The overall size of the tax cut for in-
dividuals and businesses-which the
administration projected at $54 billion
for fiscal 1982-is negotiable, ad-
ministration sources said.

Facing a campaign for mandatory
auto import restrictions in Congress,
the Japanese agreed last month to a
two-year limit on the number of cars it
sends to the United States, at 1.68
million a year.
The Reagan administration praised
the decision, and the push for more
stringent restrictions dissipated in
Last year Japan sent nearly 2 million
vehicles to the United States, excluding
trucks. But the Japanese calculated
their rollback not from that figure, but
from the roughly 1.82 million cars that
came directly to the United States.
About 170,000 vehicles were not affected
because they were sent through Puerto
Rico or were classified as wagons or
David McCammon, vice president for
corporate strategy at Ford Motor Co.,
which has vigorously pushed for import
restrictions, acknowledged the impact
of the Japanese reduction "will be
relatively minor" on the industry's
If car sales drag, the demand for
Japanese cars will be reduced, plenty
of Japanese cars will be available, and
buyers will not be particularly en-
couraged to turn to the U.S. industry.

'WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?'
Psalm 2:1 and Acts 4:25
"MAN SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE, BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT
PROCEEDETH OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD."
This passage quoted from the New Testament, Isthe first recorded words
spoken by Christ after His baptism by John The Baptist, and The Spirit of
God was seen descending upon Him in the form of a Dove. Surely the Creator
of Life, The Preserver of Life, and The Redeemer of Life is qualified to tell us
what is necessary for life and warn us against the wiles of the Destroyer of
Life, Satan, The Devil! Here Christ was speaking to the Devil who was
tempting Him to disobey God!
Doubtless one of the greatest causes of the "curse and confusion" upon
us and the world today Is due to those who call themselves Christian but
have utterly failed in making a reasonable effort to get familiar - note, we
did not say understand every word - with the entire Bible. "Man shall not
live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of
God." May we suggest that the young, the middle-age, and the old even if you
are "seventy-eleven and more," begin at Genesis 1:1 and read some every
day, praying and looking to God to "touch your heart" and shine His Light
into it by His inspired Word. Aim at seeing how much of "every word that
proceedeth out of the mouth of God" you can get familiar with before Mr.
Undertaker "calls for your carcass!" There is no telling how much sincere
action like this might affect your Eternity, and that of others. Christ said "To
him that hath shall be given, but to him that hath not shall be taken away that
which he seemeth to have." Lack of use in the long run results in lack of
From Ecclesiastes: "And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of
making many books there is no end; and much study is weariness of the
flesh. LET US HEAR THE CONCLUSION OF THE WHOLE MATTER: FEAR
GOD AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS: FOR THIS IS THE WHOLE DUTY OF
MAN. FOR GOD SHALL BRING EVERY WORK INTO JUDGEMENT, WITH
EVERY SECRET THING, WHETHER IT BE GOOD, OR WHETHER IT BE EVIL."
