Main st., Winston Salem . 27102. Bill Cundiff Asheboro chapter. Taxes jobs foreign by the associated press president Ford and Jimmy Carter have argued through the Campaign about who would do More to ease the tax Burden on the Middle class. The subject is sure to come up again in the debate tonight. Ford has accused Carter of wanting to raise taxes for half of All americans. He also says Carter wants to do away with the deduction allowed homeowners for the interest they pay on their mortgages. Carter says he simply wants to close loopholes that allow the Rich to pay less than their fair share. He says he would continue the mortgage deduction. He says the Republican philosophy a a is to pile on taxes on Low income people and take them off for the democratic candidate has called the current tax system a a just a welfare program for the he has urged an overhaul of the system rather than a tax Cut. A i would guess that the tax rates would be lowered through the entire Gamut of income a he says although a a those who now enjoy the option of not paying any income taxes like the Ford motor co. Would certainly pay the Auto maker paid no taxes in 1974 when worldwide profits were $500 million or in 1975 when profits were about $300 million the company got a $l89-million credit last year against future tax a a taxes on 9a by the associated press president Ford and Jimmy Carter both say that jobs in private Industry rather than on the Public payroll Are the Best Way to ease unemployment. But they disagree in their willingness to accept government jobs if other programs Don t work. The two men also present different views of the Job situation Ford stresses the number of people who have jobs Carter concentrates on the ones who done to. The Issue occupied a big chunk of the first presidential debate sept. 22 and it s Likely to come to the front again tonight. In the interim there has been a new report on the unemployment situation. The labor department said the unemployment rate dropped from 7.9 per cent in August to 7.8 per cent in september. But while there were fewer people out of work total employment also dropped meaning there was virtually no improvement in the Job situation in the first debate Carter said High unemployment a affects human beings and his Fords insensitivity in providing those people a Chance to work has made this a welfare administration and not a work Carter commented after Ford was critical of a $3 7-billion Bill approved by Congress that is intended to be jobs on 9a by the associated press Jimmy Carter has kept up the pressure on president Ford Over Eastern Europe and tonight s debate May provide an Opportunity for another confrontation on the Issue. Ford said in the second debate a there is no soviet domination of Eastern Europe and there never will be under a Ford six Days and several clarifications later the president conceded a the original mistake was mine. I did not express myself clearly i admit the president said that he meant to say that the United states does not recognize or accept soviet domination of Eastern Europe and supports the aspirations of the Peoples in those countries to be free. Ford issued his statement to a group of ethnic leaders at the White House they said they accepted the clarification Carter did t. He said last weekend that he did not believe Ford a made a slip of the Tongue. I think he stated what he actually As for his own stand Carter said a i would recognize soviet domination exists. But it ought not to asked what he would do if the Peoples of Eastern Europe Rose against the soviet Union Carter so foreign on 9a 7 just like new Allan Waldo of Milwaukee lovingly buffs his a new 1940 Plymouth which he discovered in a barn where it had been parked since 1940.

Rothberg a political writer Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter two presidential candidates in search of a breakthrough to a Clear Edge in the race for the White House get their last Chance tonight to find that advantage in Headon debate. Their third and final debate takes place in historic Williamsburg a. Afterwards the Republican president and his democratic challenger leave on Campaign trips that will keep them on the Road until the election associated press polls following the first two debates gave Ford an Edge in the first and Carter an almost identical Edge in the second. So ifs one each going into the final match but no one can be sure what role the debates will have in the final election outcome. The first debate covered Domestic issues and economic policy the second foreign policy and defense issues there is no limitation on the subject matter of the third debate. A week ago the vice presidential candidates Republican sen Bob Dole and democratic sen Walter f Mondale debated.
