Eureka Humboldt Standard (Newspaper) - August 6, 1962, Eureka, California Engle Sees Slim Chance For Tax Cut WASHINGTON _ s Clair Engle] D-Calif., said toda chances for congressional a proval of a tax cut were not ver good. It would be disastrous for Pre ident Kennedy to ask for a cut and not get it, he added. Engle made the comments in a interview filmed for release ove California television stations. The California Democrat said tax cut draws "substantial oppos lion" from Sen. Harry. F. Byrd D-Va., chairman of the Senat Finance Committee, and fror Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark. chairman of the House Ways i Means Committee. He said a poll of .Democrat! senators indicated a "thin mai gin" in favor of a tax cut. "This is something I think th' President ought to watch ver; carefully because it would be a mistake to ask for it if he couldn' get he said. But chances o congressional approval would in crease if economic conditions worsened, the con tinued. "He has to count noses and he ihinks he has the votes to ge a tax cut and the economic in dictators are plain enough, he should Engle added "Otherwise he'shouldn't because if would be disastrous for him to ask for it and not to get it." Engle favors a cut in the lowe income brackets if one is re- quested. He said this would in- crease consumer buying power and thus provide markets needec to encourage business to increase capital investment and production. FIRST ROUND TIE ST. ANNES, Eng.

'Greatest Story1 To Be Mode Af Home By VEHNON SCOTT HOLLYWOOD (UPI) Like a avalry charge in an antique producer-director George tevens is rushing to rescue the movie capital, but with money in- lead of bugles and sabers. He will film "The Greatest Sto- y Ever Told" smack dab in film- town, thus becoming something of a financial savior to thousands of actors, technicians and other pic- ture folk suffering from a plague of runaway productions. Rather than cast bread upon the .water, Stevens will toss hard cash into the'pond to the tune of million, perhaps more. In the past, when a producer found himself with a similar sock full of dough, he sprinted to Eu- rope to squander it among the French, English and Italians who repaid him by knocking the pic- ture. "Cleopatra" and "Ben-Hur" are cases in point. For what it's worth, Stevens' Biblical epic can lay claim to be- ing the most expensive picture ever made in the United States. It is a hollow honor for the producer, however. He might have saved several million long tons of lira by exporting his pic- ture to the land of Elizabeth Tay- lor and Richard Burton. "I couldn't have made the pic- ture here without the cooperation of all the guilds and Ste- vens said. "They reorganized their calcu- lations and made specific agree- ments for this film that will save considerable money. In return they hope 'The Greatest Story Ever Told' will stimulate produc- tion of other big costume pictures in Hollywood. "Even so, the building of sets and making of costumes are more expensive here than abroad. I've explored the advantages of la- bor, extras, artisans and materi- als and found that the scale (or all of them in Europe is much lower." Much of Stevens' budget will be spent recreating sections of .the Holy City on the 15-ucrc back lot of Dcsilti studios. He also will spend more Hum a quarter million dollars building 200 feel of Jerusalem walls on location in Utah. In all he will stimulate employment of carpen- ters and laborers by 575 worker who will construct his plaster re productions. Unemployment lines will shinl when he employs 117 actors will speaking roles and more than a thousand extras. Stevens will create a small in flation in shoemaker circles. He will need no less than pairs of sandals. Armor makers, sup- poscdly extinct since feudalism laid an egg, will be called upon For 300 suits of hardware and 500 lelmets Roman And he will spend a fortune :or rags, which can be more cost- y than regulation costumes. Some shabby outfits will be nec- essary for the tattered peasants of of the-era, which means many housands of hours of employ- ment for wardrobe specialists. The statistics are endless, but Stevens meticulously has totted up every detail. His decision to ilm his picture in Hollywood is a major boom for local craftsman.

There are a great many victims of these dis- orders who make up fifteen per cent of all doctors' of- fice calls. These Sufferers have been given hope by the .recent discovery of a new drug with tiic rather out- landish name of "griseoful- vin." Taken in pill form, this antibiotic attacks skin fungi which causes such un- comfortable and highly con- tagious ills as athlete's foot and r i n g w o r. m; Strictly speaking, griseofulvin is not now, except as a treatment for disorders of the skin.

There is not enough available land in the area where the Bu- reau of Water Resources of the National Rivers arid Harbors Con- gress wants to construct its mon- umental gift. In of the bu- private group, agreed to ask the Interior Department for space on National Capital Parks land on which to build a pro- posed structure 360 feet by 285 feet exclusive of grounds and parking areas. The bureau asked that the pro- posed building be "appropriately situated with respect to the build- ings occuped by the legislative and executive branches of the gov- ernment." This means the pro- rased building, "dedicated to the :ducation of the people in the 'ield of would- be some; )lace within the already crowd-! ed complex of government struc- tures. Secretary of Interior Stewart L. Udall passed the reqest for a long-term concession contract to Assistant Secretary John A. Car- ver Jr.. in.charge of Public Land Management. Carver called in T. Sutton Jett, director of the Na- tional Capital Parks which has charge of all public lands in the District of Columbia. Carver and Jett told the bureau it was "just not possible" to sup- ply such an area in the central Dart of Washington. "Both Carver and I liked the Jett' told UPI, "but the acreage is not available. We tried not to be too disheartening to the aureau, but we didn't see how the land in the area desired could be made available." Carver and Jett suggested oth- er areas away from downtown Washington. Otherwise, the gov- ernment officials have done ing about the bureau's request. William H. Webb, executive vice president of the National Rivers and Harbors Congress, said no progress has been made on the. building.
