would seek a second term as the candidate of the Democratic Regan at the time was head of the giant Wall Street investment firm of Lynch Four months the records he gave a like amount to the presidential primary campaign of former California Ronald the man who beat Carter and nominated Regan to be his treasury After Reagans landslide reelection last the president brought Regan into the White House in a job swap with then chief of staff James Baker But the election commission which simply provide a list of individuals political campaign dont say for whom Regan really was rooting in

Republican nomination to Regan took some flak from con servatives five years ago when they learned the Lynch political action committee had given money to But the conservatives trying to head off Regans confirmation as treasury secretary apparently missed Regans personal campaign A spokesman for him then insisted the Wall Street executive was a lifelong Republican who has never endorsed any Democrat that I know And a White House aide familiar with Regans affairs but asking not to be quoted by name said the chief of staff didnt remember giving to But the aide recalled that Regan gave two fundraisers for Reagan during the 1980 Perhaps more interesting than Regans gift to Carter and a number of other in cluding Daniel Patrick Moynihan of New York and Russell Long of Louisiana is that someone who doesnt particularly like him is passing the information The source close to the chief of staff suspected the same rightists who floated the PAC information several years ago were at it But

UP 016 USEREXTRA FORTHESOFT women have made in recent Congress is scheduled to vote this week on whether to put comparable worth into practice in the federal a concept I Comparable worth is the notion that different jobs should pay equal salaries if their value to an organization or society is judged Liberals in Texas are advancing this idea as a remedy for the wage gap between men and contending that professions dominated largely by women are undervalued and should received higher Under the comparable worth a con struction worker or executive might be required to receive the same regardless of prevailing pay levels in the labor Comparable worth supporters want to put the government into the business of deciding what every job in America is imposing rigid pay structures on all Thats a bad both in theory and No one at least of all the federal government is qualified or should even be entrusted with the power to review the jobs of more than 100 million working Americans and decide who gets how much for which Not only would it be a regulatory nightmare to it would turn our nations system of free market economics on its What is many recent studies of comparable worth conclude that this scheme would do more to resurrect traditional job stereotypes than to break down the barriers to advacement for women in the Women could opt to remain secretaries or nurses while demanding wages equal to those of skilled craft workers based on the supposed comparable worth of their comparable worth would acually encourage women to stay femaledominated professions the very situation which prompted cjvil rights laws prohibiting discrimination in the first Women are already making huge strides in the job market without comparable For the percentage of female bank officials and financial managers jumped from percent in 1960 to percent by In retail women in the managerial ranks rose from percent to in the same Despite these com parable worth advocates want to abandon the free market system of wages and equal opportunity and replace it with an artificial wage system mandated by more laws and The free market system sets wages and prices based on supply and not on some arbitrary judgment of the inherent or com parable value of the job or item on the When we shop for we pay more because of an early frost or less because of a bumper crop not because of some comparable worth commissions judgment about apples and So it should be in the labor When pay raise time the increase ought to be based solely on merit not on what some govern ment bureaucrat thinks about the comparable worth of a sales clerk and a Comparable worth is bad govern and when Congress takes up this I intend to oppose Whats Your Beef Got a complaint or a comment about something in Comal or
