The Press Democrat, Tuesday, March 27, 1984 7B Gray surprisingly fails to win support for broker issuei New York Timet Service WASHINGTON - By most accounts, when Edwin J. Cray was nominated as chairman of the Federal Home Loan Bank Board In March 1983, his chief assets were his close ties with President Reagan and the administration's Inner circle. For almost two decades, Gray's career has been linked to the fortunes of Ronald Reagan. In the 1960s, he joined Gov. Reagan's staff and advanced quickly to become the chief press aide. In the 1980 presidential cam-' paign, he worked briefly as a press secretary before taking oth er campaign Jobs. And after Reagan was elected, he served for a time as a White House aide. . "I think he Is probably one of the most dedicated supporters of Ronald Reagan that there Is In this country," Edwin Meese said of Gray in an interview last year. It Is puzzling then, say some thrift industry observers, that Gray has had such little success in winning administration support for his efforts to restrict the placement of deposits by money brokers In troubled institutions. "We would have never expected that Gray, of all people, would have got himself caught in such a messy jam with the administration," said a thrift industry executive, who said he supports Gray. Gray has said the proposal, If adopted, Is likely to be viewed as the most significant accomplishment of his tenure in office. Nonetheless, the proposal has sparked opposition In the administration, '. Earlier this month, for Instance? the Justice Department, in an unusually strongly worded letter, said the proposed rule was "overbroad and Is likely to be unenforceable."

For once, he was right!' "As long as I can remember, my father and I have disagreed over just about everything. When I was a kid, it was the toys I should have. When I was at college, the courses I took. When I graduated, the career I wanted to follow. "It's always been spendspendspend with me? One thing we nevef-agreed on was the need to save money. Like most of my generation, its always been spend spend spend with me. But the other weekend, my Dad said something to me that really made sense.

If you make a deposit before April 15th, you can still shelter $2,000 per employed person in an IRA account, against your 1983 tax return. when your mother and I did, you could have sheltered $32,000 against tax, with you and Pam both working. I didn't say much at the time, but that really made me think. I knew my folks had always saved at Southern California Savings, so the next . Saturday I went tcx speak with one of their Savings Counselors. "I discovered how IRAs are a double tax shelter They were real helpful. I discovered how IRAs ' are a double tax shelter, because both your contributions and the interest you earn are tax deferred until retirement, when you're generally in a lower tax bracket anyway. I also learned that Southern California Savings has three differ- , " " ent IRA Plans, and that ,& x you can deposit IRA . funds in many of their other savings accounts. 7 can look forward to at least SVi million? Anyway, the upshot was that we opened an IRA account with them, and I can look forward to at least Yi million when I retire. Which makes me very happy, but still leaves me wondering. How come my Dad got so much smarter, as I got older?" lj j soumern cauForma tso savmos Serving Califbrniana Better Since 1887. ELEVEN BAT AREA BRANCHES.
