In another conversation the nest day, Nixon said Colson could be lied in "up to his navel" in the cover-up. Colson left the White House last yea r to reinrn to private aw practice. He told the prayer breakfast: "Achieving is not sinfully wrong, but achieving only to gratify one's ego is to worship a false god."

Dale Bumpers said Thursday that the United States had a moral commitment to provide defense aid to Israel. There also are nioie practical reasons for keeping Israeli de Tenses equal with those of the Arabs, he added. Bumpers said his support ol arms and financial aid to Israel was one of the main differences between him and his opponent for the Democratic senatorial ooking Tor mountain f the next highesl might be able to climb so I could impress myself, my friends and my f a m i l y with how good I really was." ColRon agreed to appear at Tliursday'.s function after Sen Harold Hughes. l-Io\va, suggested to an Owosso friend t h a t the former Nixon aide he invited. Hughes himself has air nounced Ms devotion to reli gions work, saying he will not run again for the Senate. Colson refused to answer newsmen's questions aflc/ tin nomination, Sen. J. Fulbright. Kulbright has questioned U.S. aid to Israel. Giving Israel the means to defend itself is preferable to sending American troops to help defend the country, Bumpers added. The governor said he hoped that Secretary of State Henry American Iron and Steel Institute, made up of the top executives of the nation's steel industry, 'met here this week. The mood was mixed, often plain- live, sometimes confusing. When the industry's power and accomplishments weren't lauded, it seemed that its weaknesses and vulnerability were the chief concerns. The future would be good, it seemed, if taxes, imports and environmentalists could be recalled. The next decade, predicted Stewart S. Bethlehem stitute, will be one in which demand for the product might be unprecedented domestically. Cort called current deprecia lion regulations on plant and equipment "a sick joke." Tax provisions aren't doing the job of helping the industry raise capital, he said. And withou 1 capital the industry clearly cannot expand. What then? "If we cannoi : ind a way to provide capacitj :o meet foreseeable domestic demand, if we don't act on it mark my words, there'll be ir resistible pressure for the gov ernment to step in and take over," he said. Not very long ago such cries would be ignored or considers part of steel's paranoia, or a best, steel's way of obtaining its demands. But not now. TOWARD MORE CONTROL In recent months there seem, to be a growing suspicion tha pressure groups and govern ment. by ignoring the dolla and cents realities of business can regulate it into a corne from where there is no escap except into the arms of govern ment.

Bill Clinton has a program 66 Today the average working family carries too much of the tax load. The Congress must take the leadership in the drive for much needed changes in the Federal Income tax structure to more equally distribute the tax burden among the different income levels in this country. There should be an increase of $100 in the personal deduction and a lowering of the effective rate levels for middle and lower-middle income families. These reforms are especially needed now to help working people live with the rampant inflation which threatens to drive their bills up by more than 13 per cent this year. These changes in the tax laws will not deplete the federal treasury or fuel inflation if the Congress also has the courage to impose an excess profits tax on the petroleum industry and to close corporate tax loopholes. The method of taxing the foreign income of U.S. corporations must be changed. American companies are now being encouraged to invest American dollars abroad where labor is cheaper and prospects of success greater, because we allow them to deduct all foreign taxes and royalties from their U.S. tax bills, instead of their gross taxable income. Thus, the law encourages high prices, slows economic growth, and perpetuates tax inequities at home. Clinton for Congress Democrat - 3rd District See Bill Clinton Sat.. 7:00 P.M.
