Considering the fact that 50,829 acres were diverted on 2,045 farms for the 1963 program, it is expected that the final total diverted acreage in Gage County will be at least 50 per cent more in 1963. Of the 710 farms signed thus far, 204 will divert the 20 per cent minimum; 61 farms wiU divert between 20 per cent and 40 per cent of the base; 315 wi'l divert 40 per cent; and 130 will divert the 50 per cent maximum. Thursday Schedule Feed grain producers on farms located in Filley, Logan, Rockford and Sherman townships will begin sign-up Thursday morning and will be scheduled for the next four days. Kasper stated that the pattern established by the twelve townships that have already completed their sign-up is not expected to change too much when the last twelve townships complete their sign-up. Chances are however, that more farms will sign up to divert a higher percentage of the base as t h e sign-up progresses.

The Council asked a three-month suspension and an FAA spokesman said he understands the tests will be halted when an j official copy of the council’s action reaches Washington. Gordon Bain, deputy FAA administrator in charge of supersonic development, said prior to the beginning of the tests Feb. 3 if Oklahoma City residents reacted adversely to the sonic booms an alternate site for the experiments might be selected. But citizens’ groups already are trying to counteract the action of the City Council.

Miss Tyler, 24, had been subpoenaed to tell what she knew about Baker’s outside business and financial dealings. She served as his Capitol secretary and now is working in his law office here. Like Baker, she refused to answer questions on grounds of possible self-incrimination, and also invasion of privacy. And like Baker, she, too, had big-name attorney by her side. Baker’s attorney was Edward Bennett Williams, famous as a defense lawyer in headline cases. Miss Tyler’s attorney is Myron G. Ehrlich, 35, a veteran of practice in the District of Columbia and brother of famed San Francisco lawyer Jake Ehrlich. Chestnut-haired Miss Tyler arrived IO minutes early for the hearing.

The bill will bring rate cuts for all of the nation’s 80 million individual and 550,000 corporate taxpayers. The tax savings will average around 19 per cent for individuals. They will be somewhat less for those in middle income brackets, higher at the bottom and top of the scale. The reduction range is from around 15.5 per cent up to IOO per cent for the 1.5 million low-income taxpayers who will be dropped from the rolls entirely. For corporations, the reduction will average 9 per cent. However, they benefited from an investment credit provision and liberalized depreciation rules established in 1962. The Treasury estimates the over-all effect is to cut corporate tax liabilities 17 per cent. Final Action Final action on the bill comes almost exactly 13 months after the late President John F.

Only the Senate vote was required to complete congressional action on the bill today. All debate in both branches was wrapped up Tuesday and the House cleared the compromise measure 326-83. Formalities such as preparing an engrossed copy of the bill were completed in advance so that it could be rushed the White House.

The Steam unit request ok'd $8.9 million Hallam project gets approval LINCOLN (AP) — The Nebraska Power Review Board authorized Consumers Public Power District Wednesday to construct a $8.9 million 110,000 - kilowatt turbo-steam generator at its Hallam nuclear power plant. The way for the unanimous approval had been cleared Tuesday when the Nebraska Electric Nebraska Electric Generation and Transmission Cooperative, which represents 23 rural power districts, withdrew its objection to the proposed new electrical generation unit. The G&T had objected for fear approval of the new generator would adversely affect allocations of U.S. Bureau of Reclamation power to Nebraska. But Assistant Secretary of the Interior Kenneth Holum assured the G&T by telegram that approval of the new Hallam unit would not result in a reduction of bureau power to any power agency in the state except perhaps Consumers. Consumers plans to let the contract for the new unit Friday. The new generator is scheduled for completion in the spring of 1966. The board action came after Consumers General Manager Ray Schacht of Columbus testified Consumers wanted approval of the new unit now even at the risk of losing some bureau power. He said consumers could go for a year beyond the spring of PLAY MONOPOLY Accused kidnapers played football with ransom money' LOS ANGELES (AP) — The ’ Mrs. Gray said the young de- f “Barry and Joe said they government’s case against three fendants were close friends of were hungry and asked me to suspects in the Frank Sinatra her husband and herself.

Hoover, 89, was still having some respiratory difficulty from a pulmonary infection but the infection itself was responding to therapy, his doctors said. Kidney bleeding has stopped, they said in a bulletin issued shortly before IO a.m., EST. A bulletin Tuesday night said Hoover remained strong and alert despite his age and illness but had spent a rather restless day due to his respiratory difficulty. "His temperature is lower.
