WHH House Ways and Means Commit- tee members have given their ap- proval to reductions in personal income taxes effective July 1, but this approval does not mean that the the reductions will become ef- fective automatically on that date. Ever~ the one-sided 21-4 vote of the committee cannot be inter- preted to mean that the proposal will find easy sailing in either the House or the Senate. It is problematical just when the House will clear the bill, H. R. 1 sponsored by Rep. Daniel Reed (R-NY), for floor action. Chair. man Leo Allen (R.I1L) of the House Rules Committee has told newsmen that his group will "hold up" tax reduction legislation at least until May 1. The theory ~nvolved /n this possible--even probable--delay is to wait and see what spending reductions can be made and what progress can be achieved toward a balanced budget before authorizing tax cuts. Therein lies the fundamental difference in congressional think- ing at the mome.nt. One school of thought favors budget balanc- ing before considering tax re- ductions; the other group advocates immediate action to reduce taxes, giving this prior consideration over budget" balancing. Each faction advances strong arguments in sup- port of its views. Although I sincerely hope it will be possible to offer tax relief to individuals in the not-too-dis- tant future, I am a somewhat cau- tious individual and believe in the old adage that a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. I lean toward belief that reduced expenditures and efforts for a bal- anced budget should have priority. This achieved, or some substantial progress toward it evidenced, then Sundance, Wyo.

WHH Things-I-Never-Knew-Until-Now Deparment: Combined salaries of five top Defense Department of- ficials total less than 10 cents af each dollar they earned in civilian life. An Associated Press check of testimony received by the Sen- ate Armed Services Committee showed that the five secretaries in office at the time had combined annual pay and bonuses in private life of more than $1.1 million. Uncle Sam will pay them a total of $100,000 yearly. In addition to the pay cuts, four of the new of- ficials have agreed to sell or give away stock and personal hold- ings of more than $5 million in order to qualify for their Defense Department positions.

Y UR LIFE / Every time you cross a street against a red light--every time you dash out from ~ehind parked cars in mid-block, every time you walk to the right, with your back to traffic, instead 'of to the left on a rural highway--you bet your life! In 19~0, 9,400 pedestrians bet--and lost. Another 299,000 gambled against traffic odds and came away injured. One out of every three tra~c deaths were pedestrians, most of them Struck down at or between intersections or on the open roads during dark hours. We are still a nation of jay-walkers whose mental attitude apes the speeding driver, getting there fastest by the shortest route and leaving personal safety at the curb. When you are walking remember, the red light means you, too. Cross at inter- sections on the green or amber light meant for you, but watch out for reckless drivers, too. On highways walk facing oncoming cars. At night wear. or ~rry some- thing white, use a flashlight. Let drivers Imow. you are there. . " Don't jay-walk into eternity.
