"If You Have Tried The Rest — Why Not Try The BEST"
United Press International
spending power of Americans is
not eroding as fast as it used to,
but it is still dropping, govern
ment figures show.
The Consumer Price Index
for September went up by only
0.2 percent, a tiny ripple com
pared to the double digit infla
tionary waves of the recent past.
So far this year inflation has fal
len to a 4.8 percent annual rate,
matching 1976.
But the Labor Department
also reported Tuesday Amer
icans’ spending power declined
by 0.3 percent.
The spending power — infla
tion-adjusted earnings — are
calculated from three statistics,
the month’s inflation rate, the
change in hourly pay and the
length of the average work
Hourly pay, held down by
recessionary pressures, slipped
by 0.1 percent in September
while the length of the work
week remained the same.
The leaders of the Republi
can and Democratic parties were
quick to comment on the Sep
tember inflation rate, in advance
of the congressional elections
“By a curious coincidence,”
President Reagan said, “the last
time we had that (4.8 percent)
inflation rate was the last time
there was a Republican adminis
tration here,” referring to Presi
dent Ford’s 1976 White House
House Speaker Thomas
“Tip” O’Neill responded with an
equally partisan jibe, saying,
“(President Herbert) Hoover
could point to an inflation rate
of zero in 1930 and a negative
inflation rate of 2 percent by
1932,” during the Great De
This year’s recession-fueled
cuts in tax revenues and in
creased welfare costs swelled the
federal deficit for fiscal 1982 to a7*
record SI 10.7 billion, theTreas-;*
ury Department said Tuesday,
The report on the govern- “
ment’s money year ending Sept, j
30 showed the most red ink ever, v
far beyond last year’s $57.9 bil- C
lion and the previous high obg
$66 billion set by the Ford admi- 7
nistration in 1976.
The 1982 deficit was fueled >
mostly by the recession, which'C
held down economic growth,^
and with it tax revenues.
wheelchair after suffering a
diabetic coma and several
strokes, did not speak. Wearing
a black dress and fur stole, she
looked straight ahead as Sen.
Jesse Helms, R-N.G., held her
hand and Reagan spoke.
Smith’s sister, Helena Steene
of Raleigh, thanked the presi-
dent on Smith’s behalf, adding:
“She is one of the greatest ladies
1 have ever known. She has al
ways lived for her country.”
Smith received the 209th
presidential medal given since
President Truman inaugurated
the award. It is bestowed on
those who contribute to national
security, world peace or other
Since its inception, the Medal
of Freedom has gone to such fi
gures as Pope John XXIII, the
Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.,
and Bob Hope. A recent reci
pient was Reagan’s Middle East
negotiator, Philip Habib.

The record speaks for itself. Steve Smith has a much broader background in the law,
considerably more experience in County Court at law (in both criminal and civil cases), more
seasoning in contested matters and a record of public service to community.
The Judge of the County Court of Law is not an extension of the prosecutor’s office. It is a place
for the citizens as a whole and as individuals to find justice. The person who sits as judge needs
to be well versed, fair and experienced. Steve Smith is best qualified to hold this important
office. We ask for your vote and support.
