) i .= &apos; r ,/ f i* Page 4- The Woodville Republican, byPaulPittman RI' In the face of a record sur- over the mother is in the fore- lal'us in the stale trea.uey, one of' the major battles shaping u9 in the 1973 le!slative session is the quest'.on .of whether to cut, reduce debts or offer more service. The state has an $tt5 million sueplus now on ha'nd, plus addi- tional funds from t::e u.ew fed- eral revenue sharin.g prodam. The lines began to be drawn last week ,when Oowernor Bill Waller announced for h01fling the lines on any tax cuts, and Dr. Gov. William Winter came cut in favor of tax reductions, specifically in the area of the state income tax. The question of tax cuts or eaises is politically tricky and fraught wgh the possibility that a cot, lain amount of demagog- uery may snter into the picture when the question comes up. Tax cutting, after all. is not bad poli tics: ltu.t, behind the scenes, this column ,has le.arned that power- ful f, lgures in the le]islature, especially in the House, are opposed to tax cuts until the state's $400 million indebtedness is ,reduced substan, tially. in .fact, .this is the view which is shared by House Speaker! John Junkln of Natchez .and Rep. C. B. (Buddy) Newman of Issaquena county. Newman is chairman of the Ways and Means committe.e. Junkin. a ererable f,igure in the le,gis- lature, has developed the image of a hard-core conserva- tive. There is no doubt ;that a fight cast. And the political writers an commentators over the it.ate ace cot, lain to read into the fight a test of the Oov= ernors clout with ,the legislative branch as well as the difference of eptnion between the .Gov- ernor and the Lt. Gov. which was f:rst preeicted in this column. It is evident hat Lt. Oov. Wint,er's i.nten.t'.on to cast him- salf as his own man as well as his per.onal persuasion t.hat a cut is called for has set .he sage far this particular don,nybrook. But some thoughtful legis- lators privately grumble that a tax cut. if it comes, will in- evitably benefit the special in- teres, rather than a broad spectrum of v.oters. What appears likely at this point is that .some .type of re- lief In the .area of the. state income ,tax may be passed, namely in mare liberal exem.p- lions for retired people and even working faemilies. It is doubtful,- though, that major alterations in the state sales tax. such as the bill pro- filed by Rep. John Stennis of Jacks.on will survive. His legis- lation calls for exemptions on drugs and other special areas. Veterans tn the legislature know that tke sales tax has been the fiscal mainstay of Mississippi government since it was ins, tituted under .the ad- ministration of the late Mike Conner back in d, epre.ssion days. Add to all of this the fact d TIlE PEOeLE'$ l ! I,ISIN[SS) m, le,Pd by Ikss|HIppi Stato Chamber of A FOURTH BRANCII OF GOVERNMENT? Most of us were taught that there exists in thi nat'.on three branches of governmen ex- l eutive, judicial and legislative. t Some fear a fourth branch ha.s ,evolvedcluietly, gradually, and perhaps without the knowledge or c.onsent of ,the governed. This fourth and. in some eases apparently the most powerful branch of govern- ment is the branch of regulatory agencies. The regutatgry agen- c';es branch a,ppears to be the most powerful for two reasons-- its s'::e,r size and the embodi- ment. of legislative', executive and judicial powers all within single agencies. The publication, "Industry Week," has made a study of the f, ederal,ory agencies. It ould find no one in the Office of Management & Budget who even knew how many agencies exist. The Federal Register, in which regulations of agencies affecting industry ,ale po- mulgated, bulged to more than that the school teachers, services and other state services will be lar.senting additional re- quests for funds this term and you have an interesting situa- lion. ,How the Waller-Winter stand- off develops will probably be he most intere.stlng.

Clean, comfortable electric heat is economical. But there are ways you can make it even more so... ways you can save money on your heating this winter. Just follow these simple rules. (And by the way-- they appl, to any kind of heating system, not just electric heat.) 1 Have a professional check your heating equipment to make sure it's operating efficiently. Change filters when they're dirty; heating eqmpment with dirty filters will not operate economically. 2. Insulate exterior walls, ceilings, and floors. Heating costs for properly insulated homes are lways lozver. 3. hewer heating costs cart be realized with complete weather-stripping and caulk, kg 'around doors and windows. 4. Vents for ventilatiofi ofittics and crawl space should allow a flow of air tocontrol condensation. Excessive moisture can destroy':the effects of insulating materials and increase heating costs. 5. Fireplaces can waste heat. When your fireplace is not in use, make sure th.e damper is tightly closed. 6. Set the thermostat at a comfortable heating levd and turn it down 5 at night. You'll never notice the difference most nights. Or add an extra blanket if you need it. 7. For maximum comfort and economy every home should be equipped with a hflmidifier. Air that is too ' dry requires more heat for a comfort level. It's true, some of these steps may require spending some money in order to save some; But you'll come out better in the long run by following these steps. If saving money on teating Costs... and still staying comfortably warm.., iiterests you, consult your electric or heating contractor. Q; col! your local office of MP&L. ";'"iti ';"i I"1 ' .
