UNTIED NATIONS (AP) The Gf neral Assembly ends its 1977 session today after three months of debate marked by- renewed cooperation and lack of stormy confrontation. Dekgates disagreed over the accomplishments of the session, but most gave high marks for the way they conducted their business. "A spirit of cooperation dominated the entire session, and we are extremely gratified," said Yury E. Fokine, a deputy envoy in the Soviet delegation. "I think we have cultivated the habit of getting together on issues without screaming," commented Ambassador Andre Ernemann, current chairman of the nine-nation European Common Market group. Ambassador Radha Krishna Ramphul of Mauritius said the sense of accommodation and compromise was reflected in the fact that nearly two-thirds of the more than 200 assembly resolutions were approved by consensus without votes. British Ambassador Ivor Richard also said the session was "less frenetic, less strident, less confrontational and slighUymore accommodating." But "we still have much too much repetition," he added, "the same old propaganda speeches and resolutions. So overall, I'd give it a B plus." Part of the reason for the calming mood, according to some diplomats, was that developments on such potentially divisive Issues as the Middle East and Southern Africa were taking place outside the world organization. The Security Council, however, voted unanimously last * Office (Continued irom Front Page) —ana not to be between semester (this discounts many teachers, such as those in the Hope system, but not those teachers at a school on the "trimester" system, such as in Nashville.) Dolle said the Hope teachers could apply for the compensation, but the fact they vcill be between semesters will prevent them receiving money. However, under the current law. the Hope teachers would be eligible at their Easter vacation. The Nashville office, Dolle said, was flooded with teachers picking up applications. Under the law, they cannot file however, until they are "out of work." Dolle said this was not the intent of the law, but since it was legal, the Arkansas Education Association has been urging teachers to apply. -a vi We wish fo express our sincere thanks and appreciation tor every service and kindness rendered by our many friends aad neighbors during the toss of our loved one.

WASHINGTON ( AP) - President Carter said today fee Uu piw be expects to onvefl early next year wffl reduce tares for all Uopavera, despite the increase in what they wiB p«y for th< Social Security prtignun. Carter pledged that the tax program he wffl offer u part of an overall economy package "progresRhre" in twttre, ffiM the tax system whfle cntting oats for everyone. Carter, tt w»s learned, promised his advisers Monday he will make a decision by Wednesday on tax redttrtions for individuals and bwfaenea totaling between $» bflHoo and OObfflJon. His comments today on redwing taxes were made as he signed legislation to refinance the Social Security System at an increased cost to taxpayers of $227 bffllon between 1S79 and 1967. While members of the Senate ffljd House who worked most of the year on the Social Security plan looked on. Carter said: "With the help of these same leaders of Congress in 1978 we'll have tax redactions which for every taxpayer win result in a leaser tax burden even in sptte of the fact this (the Social Security legislation) does increase taxes." Sen. Rttssefl B. Long, D-La., chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, a panel that played a key role In the long struggle over the Social Security bffl, said "thatTl be easier to pass." Carter, trying to put the final touches on his tajc plan, is being forced to make his recommendations for tax cuts next year without knowing the cost to consumers of the controversial energy bflL Under the alternatives Carter is considering, persons in middle-income brackets — between 115,000 aad $20,000 — could have their taxes reduced about $300. If Carter approves, the tax package he sends Congress would include as much as $5 billion in lower federal excise taxes, it was learned These could include a speed-up in the annual 1 per cent reduction of the telephone excise tax, as weB as cots in the tax air travelers pay and the highway user tax. However, while there was no definitive word on what excise taxes would be cut, if any, it w»s said that the taxes on alcohol and tobacco would not be among them. Government revenue from federal excise taxes totaled H7.3 billion in fiscal 1976. While Carter's decision is imminent, the tax program's official tnveOtag probably will not be made for several weeks. In addition to the size of the tax cot, Carter also stiD had to decide whether to recommend it take effect next July 1 or Oct 1, the beginning of the next fiscal year. If the cut took effect in Jaly, it would be necessary to revise the budget Congress has already approved for the current, 1978 fiscal year. Carter previously has promised he will recommend substantial tax reductions next year for both individuals and businesses. However, he said that before be decided on an amount, he would await congressional action on Social Security tax in- creases and the energy bill, so be could assess their impact on the economy. Congress did complete action on Social Security legislation, which was being signed by the President today and which will sharply increase the tax that both workers and employers wfll pay, beginning in 1979. However, Congress failed to ctear an energy bill before adjourning last week, forcing Carter and his advisers to do some guessing in drawing up their tax plan. Carter needs to have his tax program in place within the next week or two in order to include it in the fiscal 1979 budget that he will send to Congress when it returns Jan. 19. One White House official, who did not want to be identified, said Carter's advisers assumed there would be no net loss to consumers or the economy from the energy bill, once enacted The official said that if the Congress did finally enact an energy bill that would take money from consumers and have an adverse impact on the economy, "then we always have the flexibility to modify" the tax bill later. all around town ... by the.
