These efforts should be pressed, even in the crisis atmosphere of an anti- inflation battle. Ever since 1950, our share of the world's im- ports has risen by 27 percent. For example, the U.S. construction industry plummeted in lust two years from first to fifth in world exports. This frightening decline translates into sickness or death for U.S. companies, loss of income for American owners, layoffs and the wrecking of the economy. Reasons boil down to a combination of thingswe are doing to ourselves and. not for ourselves, as well as things that others are doing to us. The bitterest complaints are condoned or encouraged by foreign governments but forbidden by U.S. law. Also, antitrust interpretations hold back formation of export associations to compete with cartels and powerful trading companies abroad. Lack of government support is retarding the modernization of unproductive plants that must Ipid against sparkling new factories in Europe and Asia. Hardly anybody in Business, Congress or the press is going to declare for a return to bribery by U.S. firms, even in this unequal and dangerous contest. Experience with our allies does not promise much cooperation, but at least we can embarrass them--and that may be the spur to action. Antitrust law is another restraint, necessary on the .lomestic scene, that is helping to kill U.S. exports. Even the biggest American firms have trouble competing with the huge Japanese and European cartels, all significantly aided by their governments. As a remedy, several senators have been pushing several bills to clarify the law which will give companies more assurance against legal troubles, add service to the exports that are exempted, and move promotion of export-trade associations to the Commerce Department, where they can be sympathetically treated. Senator Stevenson proposes the creation of trading companies, with participation of banks. Export decisions may not be the most sweeping or agonizing that Congress now confronts in the fight for our economic survival, But it must not be forgotten whatforeign trade and the moves to save it represent an integral part of that struggle, and cannot be ignored without peril. ..........  .................................. . .. ..................................................... .. ,... ...................... . ................ ,..,........, ........, ............,, ..... ... ..... . .....

Letters to the editor Disregards laws Editor: On the 4th of July I visited a church across the street from the Cloverdale City Park. When I was ready to leave my car was blocked by a big mobile with "Norma Bark for Congress" printed all over it. li  was illegally parked in front of the church, not only blocking my car, but all the ply others parked there, too. Dee I waited for at least an hour before the police department annreci'nted found the driver to ask him to p,l., .--- ,.= move the mobile.

Awards night and In- L. Anton stallation. The honor is Productivity tax cuts needed Senate Majority Whip Alan Cranston (D., Calif.) said today the govermnent should start to phase in a series of "productivity tax cuts" beginning this October to bolster industrial growth, increase jobs and avoid a new surge of inflation when the economy recovers from the recession. He said he would favor gradual, "timed" im- plementation starting in fiscal 1981 of investment incentives such as a further reduction in the capital gains lax cuts in corporate and personal taxes, and ad- ditional tax benefits for personal income from savings and dividends. To help people "hit by the inequities of inflation," Cranston also advocated a phasing in of indexing per- sonal income tax rates to allow for inflation and a reduction in personal income taxes to offset the increase in Social Security payroll taxes that is scheduled to take effect Jan. 1 for employees and employers. "When each of these cuts would go into operation and how large they should he will depend on how the economy-- and the budget--are doing," Cranston said. "Obviously we cannot do all this at once. But at least we should get started."

A sweeping, across-lhe-board tax cut that would boost consumerism might bring the recession to an earlier end, but it would be followed by a new skyrocketing round of inflation. A new spending splurge would have the same consequence. What we must try to do instead 1 is avoid going through boom and bust all over again by careful, prudent steady moves, that will lead to a new stability and sustained, sound growth." He said a "far more ef- feclive way of getting out of = recession without worsening inflation is the kind of tax cutting I am advocating." Cranston said the balanced budget blueprint for 1981 "provides us with a good yardstick for limiting government spending." Though I would have preferred the alternative 'ant i-recession' balanced budget I proposed--which would have gotten us out of I he recession at least a bit sooner if Congress adopted it -I hope we can continue to hold the outlay targets in the Congressional budgel and restrict any new or expanded spending programs."

Any time you might want to have a very small amount of people for a gathering you do not have to worry about the application. The City would rather not have to do it this way. but the Park is being so heavily used in the recent years, and space is at a premium, that it was felt it was necessary to do this. Have you noticed the nic4= job of topping the trees in the Park? This was done for safet y's sake, so you could enjoy yourselves, not having to worry about getting bopped on the head. Last week we talked about turning a decorating problem into an asset by making it a focal point. Another way to drape small windows to enchant a room is to cover a larger area of the wall than is custon?,ary. This is just the opposit of using the win- daws as a focal point if you drape with solid color and use the color on the wall. Not only does this make the windows look larger, it makes a small room look larger, also. To achieve a higher contrast level in the room without going really bold, use a print, but keep it in the soft shades and colors closely related on the color wheel. This is especially important when draping a large area. Another way to drape a large area using a print is to use solid color drapery, then use your print or a solid bolder color as a stationary side panel in front of the print or soft-colored drape.., or use the heavier colors in a cornice box. the stock market as can wealthier people.
