8-B £i, r toiliu-sioH flaiiis Xrti.e Saturday Morning, September 23.1978 Bulletin Board SOME TWINS like to share the same experiences, or so you might think of this Fontana, Calif., pair. It's wasn't pleasant, though, when Ingo, left, and Coy Middlebrook, right, 10 years old, each broke an arm five days apart. It happened to •Coy the day before school started, when he fell off the living room couch while wrestling with a younger brother. Five days later, Ingo broke his arm by falling off a seven-foot high chain link fence. The boys are fifth graders at West Randall Elementary School. (UPI Telephoto). Reagan Says 1980 Bid Possible, GOP Would Unify Behind Tax Cut CHICAGO (UPI) Ronald Reagan said Friday there is a strong possibility '-"'.„ he will run for president in ;;";1980, and he believes the - -Republican Party will enter the campaign unified , behind a tax cut platform. Sounding more like a candidate all the time, . Reagan joked when a • reporter asked "when" he would announce for -.-^resident. ••••••*•• "You didn't even ask 'if I'm going to run," he said. • Then, turning serious, he "'. said, "There is a distinct --possibility I will be a r-'-candidate. •?*• it* "Maybe it would take something unforeseen to •---<raake me decide not to run. ::? But we'll talk about that '•» some time in 1979." £**•" The former California '» governor joined 50 GOP leaders on the final day of their 5,000-mile cross« ,, country "t ax blitz" pushing the bill. The team made appearances in Chicago before flying lo Oklahoma City and on to California for a windup rally featuring former President Gerald Ford. Reagan denied reports he is making a special effort to mend fences with Ford, his 1976 Republican rival. "I didn't know any bridges had to be built," Reagan said. "I campaigned for him in 23 states, did television commercials, sent out a nationwide mailing that raised $1 million. There is no problem of that kind in our party." Reagan said if he does run in 1980, one of his major campaign themes will be the Roth-Kemp 33 percent tax cut bill which the Republicans have adopted as party policy. Reagan said he was amazed when a recent poll showed a majority of those contacted believe the Democrats are more capable of cutting taxes than the Republicans. "This just goes so against history that you wonder how in the world, with all the communications we have today, a fairy tale of this kind can continue," he said. "Between 1900 and 1972 — a period of 73 years — the Republicans were in charge 37 years and the Democrats 36 years, so they had equal time to get things done. "The Republican Parly has reduced taxes 13 times and the Democrats reduced 'them only once. The Republicans raised taxes four times and the Democrats eight times." At the Chicago stop, Republican national chairman Bill Brock said despite small crowds and often skeptical taxpayers, the seven-city tax cut campaign was a success. He said the trip cost the parly about $150,000 and reaped millions in free advertising. "1 would say we couldn't touch the television alone for a million dollars, both in terms of time and quality," Brock said. "We were on the news shows in every city, which is the best time to communicate on a serious issue. "I haven't seen a crowd at a political event in six years. That's not the way to communicate any more. It's the media. That's how you communicate."
