Gray Institute of Lamar University in Beaumont on November 11. Your presence on this occasion will add dignity and credibility to the Institute and will help us immensely in achieving our major objectives, i.e., to improve labor-management relations, prevent work stoppages, and increase productivity in the great Gulf Coast crescent which we serve. During my active years in banking, I had the privilege of serving on the Board of Directors of the Houston Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas and later as Federal Advisory Councilman representing the 11th District. These experiences have helped me to understand more clearly the truly great contributions you as Chairman of the Board of Governors have made to our nation's welfare. Along with millions of other citizens, I was reassured and deeply grateful for your acceptance of President Reagan's appointment for another term. We look forward with keen anticipation to having you in Beaumont and Southeast Texas on November 11, and we shall do everything in our power to make your visit most pleasant and enjoyable. Meanwhile, I join with Elvis and all other members of our Board of Trustees and Advisory Council in thanking you sincerely for taking time out of your busy life to honor us by dedicating the Institute.

Volcker RECEIVED Chairman of the OFFICE OF THE CHAIRM A!'; Federal Reserve Board 20th Street and Constitution Ave, N.W. Washington D.C., 20551  May I refer to the pleasant evening which we spent in your company last April in Paris with our friends, Marc Vienot and Jacques Mayoux, to tell you how delighted I was to learn of your reappointment as Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board. At a time in which I assume that the messages coming from France could reflect various attitudes, I want to tell you how warmly I welcome this decision. Would I dare to say that I never had any real doubt about the final choice of the President, and that it has been in the recent months and weeks my favourite bet with my American friends, including Arthur Burns, Frank Zarb and Felix Rohatyn. I offer you my warmest congratulations.  y  P.S.- May I, on this occasion, take the liberty of coming back to what I mentioned during our conversation at Maxim's last April concerning the persistent strength of the dollar. I have been suspecting for some time that one significant cause of this strength may be found in the international process of creation of new dollars. This process which has developed in the seventies, has now dried up as long as the deficit of the current account of the United States is relatively small and that the global surplus of the oil producers has practically disappeared. This is why I believed since several months that the undertone of the dollar is fundamentally strong and up to now I see no reason to change this perspective.ef° 1).r.  0,, A  10\   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  June 30, 1983  Mr. Pierre Haas Paribas International 3, Rue D'Antin Paris, France Dear Pierre: Thanks so much for taking the time to write about my reappointment.

It gives a sense of the authority and respect you have gained in the world that we all felt relieved and more secured when we heard, last saturday morning, of the President's decision. At a time where confidence is a fundamental factor to keep on an even keel the financial affairs of the world, that you will remain in charge of the United States monetary policy will give heart to those Institutions, like ours, which must increase their contribution to certain sovereign risks to try to save what they already have at stake.

Volcker refused. Volcker has integrity and dedication* His integrity includes determination to do what he decides is economically correct. His dedication is shown by his acceptance of reappointment. He could well have declined to continue. For his gargantuan expertise, monumental responses, and unique integrity, he is paid a paltry $69,800 per year, before taxes.

And he could make a very great deal of money, by gainful private employment, oOthaving a Kissinger type of operation, or do what Congressmen do --go on a lecture circuit and make money by talking; or as ex-politicians do, write books* or teach.

B. Greene, Jr.  Dear W. B.: Thank you for your comments regarding the reappointment of Paul Volcker as Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. I appreciate knowing of your interest. As a general rule, when nominees are first presented for the advice and consent of the Senate, my preference is to support the President's choice except in cases of evident incompetence. Paul Volcker is not incompetent in any way. However, this is not the first time his nomination has been before the Senate. He has a record to defend. As I said to Mr. Volcker in recent Banking Committee hearings, I have the utmost respect for him as an individual of great intellect and integrity. I advised him, in my statement, that my reason for opposing his reappointment was that I do not believe that the high interest rate policies he has advocated are in the long-range best interest of a healthy economy. The human and economic costs of the recession, the effects of which are still painfully present in major sectors of the economy, are counterproductive to the achievement of a full and stable economic recovery, in my view. This was a very carefully considered decision on my part, and I am confident that Chairman Volcker fully understands the reasons for my disagreement with him on matters of policy. I want to thank you again for giving me the opportunity to discuss the issues with you. I hope you will let me know if ever I may be of service to you in soT:e , -way.   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  ncerely,  Jim Sasser United States Senator   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  August 12, 1983  Dear Alan: I am usually cautious too, hut sometimes feel that willingness to stay here is prima facie evidence of incometence -- all the more because I would have been delighted to be writing you!

All those familiar names and faces! I have to report that Louise died some years ago, and I begin to feel old when I think of Ruth being retired. Thanks so much for taking the time to write and remind me of the Longfellow Avenue roots. I went to Teaneck a couple of months ago for a dinner. It was the first time in many years. I drove down the old street -- it didn't look so different externally, but it can't be the same.

Washington, D.C. 20551 My dear Paul: I take the liberty of addressing you this way because my last recollection of you was of a very tall, towheaded boy of about 7 years walking past the "Burger's house" on Longfellow Ave. in Teaneck, N.J.  Of those that grew up on Longfellow Ave. that have kept in touch, they all ask me if I have ever written to you. Mrs. Burger told me Warren met you at a Reception in N.J. and you remembered him. My brother, Phil Sulley and his wife, Alice Blomberg, live in Bradenton, Florida. Leonard Mendez lives in Stuart, Florida and Marion Fisher who lived nearly opposite your corner house is in Glen Cove, N.Y. I can safely say this is a remembrance from all of the above. I remember your father well as my father, John Sulley, was running for Mayor of Teaneck and we, children, had to pass out cards for him. The government of Teaneck was changed that year to City Manager and that is when your Father came into Teaneck. Marion and I often talk of those years as 10 year olds of how patient your sister, Louise, was. She put us through a 3-act play. We had the leads and had to memorize all of this and the play was put on in your big garage. I had new leather school shoes on and had to pretend to tip over a canoe and Bobby Raetz put the hose on me. The shoes were ruined, but the memories of that time have always stayed with us. We made all of $4.01 and donated it to the Depression Fund at the Town Hall. We all used to gather on your front steps and Louise would have us act out courtroom scenes and appoint each of us as witnesses or lawyer. No one could have had more interesting experiences than we did on Longfellow Ave. without TV and using our own imaginations. Please remember us all to Louise and Ruth, who would peek out at us once in awhile to see what we were doing. I read a very good article about you in the Dayton Daily News and of your dedicated life to our government and this country. I felt it was time to write this and let you know you are not alone. There are many of us that remember you and your family and our prayers and thoughts go out for your support continually. I live in Dayton, Ohio currently and have my family of three daughters and grandchildren nearby. I work at a Teamsters Union and have for 9 years. Of course, you know of our Ohio Jackie Presser recently becoming General President of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. We are all looking forward to changes for the better in all directions. Again, our best wishes for your continued inspiration, dedication and principled thinking.

Dear Paul: Along with the entire nation, I am delighted with your reappointment as Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board. I'm glad you can continue to afford to live on what it pays, and that your family will continue to tolerate your commuting. As you may recall, I did a little commuting myself when John was practicing in Los Angeles and I was on the Tax Court in Washington. I believe you were born for the job of Chairman, trained for it, and placed on the job when we needed you the most. You did a fabulous job with inflation, something the politicians could never do. I wish you an easier and pleasanter four years ahead. Our economy is in your hands. I am enjoying the U. S. District Court in Los Angeles. As you may recall, I wanted the job so I could stay home with John's and my son, Harris, who is now 11 years old. I underestimated the time pressures involved in the job, particularly that I would have to work most weekends. As a result, I have sent Harris to the North Country School in Lake Placid, New York, which he likes very much. The school can devote 24 hours a day to him and is full of young men teachers who take the children hikina and mountain climbina in the fall and spring and skiing in the winter. Again, my congratulations to you.

S. HENR ION VICE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD  Honorable Paul Volcker, Chairman Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System 20th Street and Constitution Avenue, N.W. Washington, D.C. 20551 Dear Paul: Your friends at Woodmen Accident and Life Company are very pleased that President Reagan has reappointed you to serve a second term as Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. As I see it, you are not to be congratulated on your appointment. It is President Reagan and all the people of our country who are to be congratulated on being so fortunate to be the beneficiaries of your dedicated and sacrificial service for another term. I am very conscious of the personal sacrifices which you have made and will continue to make in serving our nation in what may well be the most important position in our country, especially during these troublous and challenging times. Nevertheless, I believe that nothing could be more rewarding than exercising your outstanding abilities in providing long range benefits for so many millions of people. We have been among the many who have been writing to President Reagan urging your reappointment. We would like to believe that Nebraskans, especially those staunch Republicans who have provided Reagan with significant support, have made some difference. I wonder if my voice would count for much, coming from an independent Democrat, like yourself. However, my wife and I voted for Reagan and supported him financially. I wish you the best of everything during these next several years, especially the continuing wisdom and courage to orchestrate monetary policies which will put the unemployed back to work and return our economy to a highly productive basis. I must add that I am very conscious of the fact that you and the Federal Reserve cannot do it alone and must have the cooperation of the Administration and the Congress in shaping sound fiscal policy. Again, my best wishes!   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  Sincerely yours,  1526 K STREET • P.O.

After listening to the political statements of our congressmen and reading the tired pronouncements of most of the bureaucrats, it is refreshing to have someone appear who maintains the courage of his convictions and who has publicized the undesirable consequences of unlimited spending by congress. I believe you have been the single, most influential person responsible for the decline of inflation. For those working for wages, it seems to me this is the most cruel manifestation of currency manipulation, and to have it under control at this time indicates that aside from other uncertainties in the economy, your uncompromising stand against this monster has been responsible for its correction. It galls me to read or hear of your abuse from congress when that body has been so responsible in the past for trying to spend this country into third world poverty while the wage earners and savers have experienced a decline in the value of their past and present labors. You should be entitled to reappointment for bringing inflation under control. For your continuing good judgement in guiding the economy you deserve the appreciation of each working citizen of this country. Sincerely, .7/ Robert W.

Mr. Speaker, as you can well remember, 4 years ago Pope John Paul II traveled to his native Poland as a champion of the Catholic Church and as a champion of Polish people everywhere. Today, somewhat in response to that, but particularly in response to the movement which seas generated as a result of the Pope's visit to Poland known as Solidarity and the symbolic leadership which Lech Walesa has provided freedom -loving people all over theworld, and particularly Polish people. I am introducing a House concurrasat resolution which would give to Leah Walesa honorary U.S. citizenship. Since Pope John Paul II is returning to Poland today I think now is the time to consider my resolution. Mrs Speaker, I realize that this is a high honor and in fact in our history we have only done it twice before, first to Winston Churchill, the dynamic Prime Minister of Great Britain during World War IT, arid second to Raoul Wallenberg, the great Swedish humanitarian who helped the Jewish people during their difficulties in World War IL But I think it is clear that Lech Walesa represents something that strikes a respondent chord in the people of America and freedom -loving people all over the world. He is a champion of freedom. He is an ideal in the democratic process, and I would hope, Mr. Speaker, that the chairman of the House judiciary Committee, the gentleman from New Jersey (Mr. Ronraro) would work with me so that either today or when we convene the House of Representatives next week that we could show the support of the United States for the oppressed people in Poland by making Lech Walesa the third honorary U.S. citizen in our history. EDUCATIONAL REFORM IS THE ANSWER TO QUALITY EDUCATION (Mr. WEBER asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks and to include extraneous matter.) Mr. WEBER. Mr. Speaker, President Reagan has initiated an historic debate on education but many of his Democratic rivals seem intent on turning that into a narrow debate over Federal spending for education. I raise for my colleagues' attention today the recommendations of the Task Force on Education for Economic Growth chaired by Gov. James Hunt, a Democrat of North Carolina. Consider the task force's recommendations which include the following: developing and putting into effect as promptly as possible State plans— State plans—for improving education. Creating broader and more effective partnerships with the business community.   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  • HOUSE  Drastically overhauling and improving methods for recruiting, training. and compensating teachers by moving toward merit pay. Increasing both the duration and the intensity of the academic learning time in our schools. Improving the management of instruction in the schools, and insuring that existing resources are used more effectively, and providing quality assurance in education by establishing systems for measuring the effectiveness of teachers and administrators. Nowhere in the Hunt commission report, Mr. Speaker, is there a call for increased Federal aid to eduaation. Those who focus solely on that issue are ignoring the major issues that confront us today in the debate over education. TASK FORCE ON FT, rUCATION FOR ECONOMIC GROWTH—HUNT REPORT ‘PUBLIc ScHOOLS) 1. Develop—and put into effect as promptly as possible—state plans for improving education in the public schools from kindergarle-n through grade twelve. Each plan should acknowledge the central role of education in the state's future economic growth and in preparing people for jobs. It should specify how technology shall be used to improve education. Each plan should set specific goals for educational improvement, timetables for achieving those goals—and methods for measuring the results. 2. Create broader and more effective partnerships unth business which are essential to improve education. Corporate and business leaders should help define the skills needed in the workplace and thus the standards that should be met by the schools. (team teaching using teachers and industry specialists and business recognition of outstanding teachers and principals) 3. Express a new and higher regard for teachers and the teaching profession. Drastically overhaul and improve methods for recruiting, training, and compensating teachers. 4. Make the academic experience more intense and more productive. Increase both the duration and the intensity of academic learning time in schools. Strengthen the curriculum. Establish firm, explicit and demanding requirements concerning discipline, attendance, homework, grades and other essentials of effective schooling. 5.

PROPOSAL FOR $700 CAP ON TAX CUT IS ECONOMICALLY UNSOUND (Mr. MACK asked and was given permission to address the House of I minute and to revise and extend his rem arks.) Mr. MACK. Mr. Speaker, the House leadership, by proposing a $700 cap, on the third year of the tax cut, is considering an option that is not economically sound nor is it fair. Individuals in the top tax bracket have already received their tax cut, yet revenues collected by the Government from those individuals have increased. A taxpayer earning $50,000 of gross income in 1983 would have experienced a cumulative tax increase of around $7,500, solely due to bracket creep of the previous decade. The third stage of the tax cut will offset less than 10 percent of that hidden tax hike, and if the tax cut is capped, the full burden will remain. The Treasury Department estimates that half of the taxpayers affected by a p700 cap would have incomes below $50,000 and the marginal tax rate for those earning $35,200 in taxable Income would jump from 28 to 37 percent. The whole tax cap idea is destructive to capital formation. The Treasury Department estimates that 14 million small businesses would be hit by this tax cap. Small business investment would be sharply reduced since about three-fourths of all businesses pay taxes according to the personal income tax schedule. The result, then, of the effort to have the so-called rich pay their share of the burden would hurt everyone by discouraging incentive investment, and saving. PRESIDENT SHOULD REAPPOINT PAUL VOLCKER (Mr. HYDE asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. HYDE. Mr. Speaker, it is ironic that the Communist Manifesto proclaims "Workers of the world, unite; you have nothing to lose but your chains.- The workers of Poland united and that is what they got from their Communist masters, chains. On another matter, though my opinion has not been asked, I do hope the President will reappoint Paul Volcker as Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board. In one of the most heat-sensitive jobs in the world, he has performed brilliantly. He has helped wring inflation out of our economy, no small task. He has the confidence of Wall Street and the rest of the financial community, and that he was not appointed by  June 16, 198d  CONGRESSIONAL RECORD — HOUSE  this President is an asset.

THE $700 CAP IS FAIR (Mr. SHANNON asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. SHANNON. Mr. Speaker, it wa.s the 1981 tax bill which was sent to us by the Reagan administration, which has bankrupted the country, created a $200 billion budget deficit, and created the greatest Inequities ever foisted upon the American taxpayer. We in the House of Representatives have the constititional responsibility to begin restoring our tax base and that does mean a tax increase. But we are going to do it differently than the Reagan administi ation would do it. They have sent us proposals to put energy taxes on every single taxpayer in An-,erica, to put surtaxes on every single taxpayer in America, to increase the tax burden car middle income people. We are going to say no. we are not going to allow that to happen anymore. 13 1100 Our tax csp will be a tax cop that will rest primarily on people who earn over $50,000 a year. Lighty-eight percent of the tax increase rests on people over $50,(.)00 a :year. We all acknowledge that we nced to raise taxes. The Reagan administration has sent us the energy tax, and the surtax. The Democratic party says. "No, let us put the tax burden back where it belongs on higher income people, let us protect middle income taxpayers." TAX CAP WILL AFFECT MAINLY THOSE EARNING OVER $50,000 A YEAR (Mr. SCHUMER, asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. SCHUMER. Mr. Speaker, just a moment ago I heard my good friend from upstate New York trying to warn what he called the middle income people of America about the tax bill that we are about to take on the floor next Thurday. Well, I would say that that means that my friend from New York is trying to be the Paul Revere of the rich, because the people he is warning are those whose income is above $50,000 a year.
