sons had perished Wonted Opposition for Rocky Conservatives ews in a nutshell must act By LYLE C WILSON WASHINGTON UPI Re publican conservatives will learn that it never is enough merely to oppose a front runner for the partys presidential nomination It is necessary also for the opposing group to have an at tractive alternate candidate of their own That strategy is im posed by authority of one of the basic rules of political strategy It is this You cant lick some body with nobody So Republican conservatives need a candidate of their own as an alternative to the candidacy of Gov Nelson Rockefeller of New York There is no more doubt about Rockefellers candidacy at this hour than there is doubt about tomorrows sunrise Less may be There is some doubt that Sen Barry Goldwater RAriz will go for the Republican presi dential nomination This doubt may be related to a doubt that Goldwater could be nominated Republican conservatives have not been able to nominate a presidential candidate since Cal vin Coolidge in 1924 Goldwater has asked for the remainder of 1963 to make up his mind about 1964 That puts the conservatives in a hole What they soon will need to throw a body block agains Rockefeller is a real live per forming candidate who asserts his candidacy without qualifica tion and who will barnstorn the nation promising to stop Rockefeller and lick the Ken nedys The conservatives need tha kind of a candidate and need him soon to fire the politica boilers to stimulate fund rais ing and to energize conservative political efforts from the pre cinct level up Rockefeller is conceded to be front runner for the Republican presidential nomination H i lead is underwritten by the fac that he has no visible opponenl There is opposition of course Lots of it But no opponent s far There is no man or woma to look the governor in the ey and say Ill see you at th national convention Rocky an knock you off Elite guards ied up LONDON Fed up with what they called

chuckling with satisfaction at what it called painful agonies of South Viet names women and children The newspaper said that so far the use of chemical weapons is limited to one colonial war but who can guarantee that the peoples of other countries will not suffer from them too This seemed a continuation of arlier longlasting Soviet propa anda that the United States used erm warfare in Korea with

recess Monday with most of its major problems still to be solved and top priority assigned to the nagging problem of taxes and property tax relief The House Ways and Means Committee has promised to shove a tax bill out to the House floor within the first few days after the recess Most of the committee members arc seeking a way to set up a fund of to million a year to be passed back to local govern ment units to reduce local proper ty taxes They have tentatively approved an increase in tha sales and use tax rate from 2 to 3 per cent and boosts of onethird in the per sonal and corporate income tax rates to pay the bill Whatever tKe final form of the bill proposed by the committee it is bound to get a good going over in both houses before it is passed Many legislators are committed to the idea of voting new state taxes for local property tax re Jief mostly in the form of addi tional aid to schools But views vary widely on the proper means of financing the program Another question that mut be settled is whether the legislature is going to impose some curb on governments to force them to hold the line on future property tax increases Underlying he entire problem of state school aids is the need for equalizing tax assessments be tween he counties Some counties assess property at the rate of 20 per cent of market value whereas others may range up to 30 per cent Many legislators say this creates severe inequities in alloca tion of present school aids and without equalization the inequities would be aggravated if new school aids are voted Legislators presumably have been checking with the folks back home during the recess for their thoughts on the tax issue There are indications that some early in the session favored voting to million a year in new state taxes for property tax relief are lowering their sights somewhat Speaker of the House Robert Naden K Webster City says however that the state must find about million in new revenue to make up for the amount spent in the current biennium out of the state treasury surplus plus million up for property tax re lief He says thats the minimum that would be acceptable The Republican leadership ap parently is ignoring the revenue potential of liquor by the drink in fashioning the tax program be cause it isnt certain that a bill to legalize overthebar sales of liq uor will pass Rep Paul Knowles R Daven port has taken Gov Hughes to task on this point saying the gov ernor hurt the liquor by the drink bills chances by including a rki irulously low revenue estimate of million a year in the gov ernors budget message Most agree too that Hughes opposition to an adjusted gross in come tax has killed it as a new revenue source and that there is no chance of enacting either a withholding system for the state income tax or monthly instead of quarterly reporting of sales tax collections to produce windfall income to carry the state through the next biennium as proposed by Hughes Rep Elmer Vermeer RPclla Ways and Means Committee chairman told the House just be fore the recess that a new study by Legislative Fiscal Director H Wicker indicates the proposed personal income tax increase would boost state revenue by million a year some mil lion higher ttun previous esti mates A onecent sales tax boost would swell the states coffers by about to million annually and the onethird boost in the corpo rate income tax million for a total of more than million a year Vermeer said the goal is state wide property tax relief of 10 to 12 mills It takes million to cut property taxes one null he said The committee is pondering the possibility of setting up a school property tax replacement pay present state school aids of million a year plus rcw aids to be set up It aso is hopeful of paying the
