6-C CIjc (6aiuc»ton p«il\j Sunday Morning. September 24. 1978 ERA Supporters Make Push For More Time For Ratification REPUBLICANS continued their "tax cut blitz" with press conference in Chicago Saturday. The Republican National Committee is conducting a flying campaign to six cities from New York to CalfioCalifornia to promote the Roth-Kemp tax cut bill in congress. Among those at the press conference were from left, Ronald Reagan, New York Sen. William V. Roth and Illinois Se. Charles Percy. (UPITelephoto) WASHINGTON (UPI) Senate Democratic leader Robert Byrd is coming under intense pressure to make sure legislation to extend the ratification period for the Equal Rights Amendment isn't lost in the rush to congressional adjournment. A group of House ERA supporters threatened Friday to delay House consideration of President Carter's high-priority energy bill and force a lame-duck session unless Byrd brings up the ERA extension before — not after — a tax bill scheduled for the week of Oct. 2. The House members fear a "stampede for adjournment" once the tax bill passes, and the ERA extension will get dropped jj it isn't considered first. Some 50 to 75 House members whose votes are vital if the energy legislation is to pass reportedly are prepared to join in the delay tactics to force a session after the November elections. Rep. Pat Schroeder, D- Colo., said House ERA backers will "have a very serious talk with (Speaker Thomas) O'Neill" on Monday to tell him of their ultimatum. "If we're going to deregulate natural gas, 1 think we ought to deregulate women," said Mrs. Schroeder. Meanwhile, Sen. Birch Bayh, D-Ind., and 11 other senators including assistant Democratic leader AJan Cranston met Friday with Byrd to push for quick consideration of ERA. They told him they have 62 firm votes - two more than needed to curtail a promised filibuster by conservatives and speed a final vote. Byrd reportedly told the senators he was "impressed" with their arguments and would give them an answer shortly. But sources said Byrd did not give a firm commitment. Byrd reportedly reacted with hostility when in- Senate Passes California Court Ruling Foreign Aid Bill ^3 ^WASHINGTON (UPI) — "We're now at Sparks More Tax Revolts SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) — Affirmation by the California Supreme Court of Proposition 13 is fueling similar radical tax revolts across the nation.

Libby Gardner Call — 74O-0439 I Reasonable Rotes. ammunition for tax rebels in a dozen states where similar measures will be on the ballot and in several others where they may yet qualify. Paul Gann, co-sponsor with Howard Jarvis of Proposition 13, said the court's decision Friday, Jarvis' 7Gth birthday, removed "a big question" from the minds of many persons. Jarvis and Gann have been campaigning nationwide for constitutional changes requiring swift and huge tax reductions. Since the June election, just about everywhere they have been received as heroes. By a 2-to-l vole, Californians approved Proposition 13 to slash properly taxes by S7 billion, or 57 percent. The loss in revenue brought chaos to city and county governments. The size of the vote put the California court in the hot seat because four of ils seven members are on the November ballot for confirmation. Chief Justice Rose Bird, a recent appointee of Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr., is the target of a well-financed campaign by conservatives to oust her from the court. During oral arguments, the chief justice noted from the bench that because of the initiative, members of Ihe court had been threatened with recall and even with threatened anonymously "with physical harm to themselves and their families." The initialive set assessments at 1975 levels, and allowed annual increases of no more than 2 percent. But a person who buys a house at 1978, or perhaps 1988, prices, gets a new assessment, and winds up paying much higher taxes than his neighbor. But the majority said, "The fact that two taxpayers pay different taxes on substantially identical property is not wholly novel to our genera] taxation scheme."

Lsrge Group DRESSES & BLOUSES 25 »50%«*_ Barbara Dales' QUEEN SIZE Baybrook Mall [BY Montgomery Wards] 488-6527 WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Senate has passed a $9.2 billion foreign aid bill with nearly a fifth of the money in economic aid to Israel, Egypt, Jordan and Syria as part of the administration's campaign for peace in the Middle East. The foreign aid appropriations bill would also give developing nations $1.9 billion to help them cope with the rising costs of petroleum. Before passing the bill Friday by a 39-22 vote, the Senate decided to cut off $8 million in aid to Nicaragua unless President Carter can certify that the money will go to the people who need it. The Senate made a number of changes in the House-passed bill, and so a conference committee must resolve the differences before the measure goes to the White House. The bill would spend $785 million in aid for Israel, $750 million for Egypt, $93 million for Jordan and $90 million for Syria. Sen. Orrin Hatch, R- Utah, who fought nearly every sentence in the bill, accepted this aid on Thursday when Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, told him, : We're now at the threshold of peace.' Hatch forced the Senate to vote on more than 50 foreign-aid amendments instead of making a decision on all the Senate Appropriations Committee's changes at once. Friday's debate began with Hatch fighting a proposal to contribute $1.9 billion to a $10.5 billion International Monetary Fund plan to create a revolving fund to help poorer nations solve balance of payments problems caused by high oil prices. An attempt to cut the contribution to $500 million was rejected 47-18 after Sen. Jacob Javits said failure to pass the entire amount "may very well signal the first step in the breakdown of the entire international monetary system." The oil-producing nations are contributing to this fund, with Saudi Arabia chipping in $2.5 billion. The amendment to cut Nicaraguan aid passed after Sen. Frank Church, D- Idaho, said it was necessary to "disavow the discredited" government of Gen. Anastasio Somoza Debayle.
