musicals It would provide a national stage where the eight million tourists and large broadcast audiences could and hear noted per formers Creation of the center was authorized by Congress in 1958 and a 13acre site was sub sequently made available by the District of Columbia But Con gress stipulated that develop ment of the center must come irom funds raised by volun tary contributions If enough money isnt forthcoming by September 1963 to start construc tion and give promise of finish ing it Congress said its authoriz ing act will cease to be ef fective Success of the fund drive is by no

to reflect the publics de mand for local property tax re lief with a minimum of state tax increases Department heads seem reluctant to propose new programs especially those re quiring any hefty hike in addi tional funds They apparently realize the next legislature will be struggling to procure enough money to reduce property taxes and meet other state needs However the askings have been up sharply as department heads point up the need for high er salaries to retain present key employes and attract skilled replacements to state government In the past most departments have been content to request ad ditional funds to boost employes a single step up the salary scale This year there has been several requests for double steps for each year of biennium DRIVERS STRIKE NEW YORK UPI Police
