Spring will arrive at p.m. today and turn young men's fancies toward love or golf, or the chances of a Red Sox pennant, or some such thing. But, alas! The Old Farmer's Almanac predicts that both romantics and sportsmen alike will literally have their spirits dampened during the remainder of March, and all through April. And, snicker if you will, but that Old Farmer usually calls 'em right. The forecast for spring, In one word, is: Rotten. "March was adverse, April will be says the Fanner. "March and April will be raw, un- comfortable, unseasonable, disagree- able, and definitely the months to be away in. In fact, the one really big storm of the Winter may be the one during the last week of April." If that isn't enough to make you want to hustle your crocuses to tropi- cal climes, the day-to-day forecast only lists a scattered few fair days from now through April, with mostly unsettled, cold, and probably rainy weather dominant. The clincher storm, alluded to above, is supposed to swoop into New England from Chicago and the Great Plains around April 29. Oh well, you say, there's always May and June. Unfortunately are you ready for this? There isn't a gen- erally optimistic weather forecast for any month until September. October will be nice, too, the Farmer says. But, look out for November and December! How is the Farmer coping with all this unpleasantry? He offers a poem: "Hail, this first day of Spring; Consider the snow and hail it doth bring. For one more month we'll shiv- er and freeze; In winds that seem below zero by 20 degrees." By EILEEN 8HANAHAN NIW York TimM WASHINGTON The Nixon administration has about decided that it can- not prepare a full tax re- form program in time for Congressional consideration this year. Tai Incentives Instead, (or the immediate fu- ture, it will concentrate on thi development of tax incentives designed to stimulate greater participation by private industry In such programs as Job train- ing and construction of low-cost housing. Revisions of the tax law in I few specific areas, such as the tax treatment of foundations, will also be forthcoming this year, according to the present administration timetable. But probably only three or four spe- cific subjects will be covered, at the maximum. Comprehensive tax reform proposals will await the delib- erations of two sets of study groups that the administration is planning to create. One of these groups, which would have a reporting dead- line of, perhaps, next January, would focus on what most peo- ple mean by the term "tax re- form" changes that would be aimed at distributing the burden of taxes more fairly. This would be the administration's interme- diate range program. Restructuring System A longer range reform Rubbish Collection Plan Goes To Aldermen By CLAUDETTE DUROCHER A measure to authorize put- ting the municipal rubbish col- lection system out to bid will return to the full aldermarae board Tuesday night with a sec- ond recommendation for pas- sage. The resolution was presented to the aldermen for final ap- proval Jan. 28 but had been re- committed to the planning com- mittee for more study. At a meeting last night, the committee again recommended passage. Alderman Donald L. Ethier, planning committee chairman, said the measure ought to be approved to allow the Depart- ment of public Works to obtain bids for private collections for comparative purposes and to bring the long-delayed proposal to some type of conclusion. Aldermanic President Mau- rice L. Arel said a speedy deci- sion on the resolution was also advisable because new rubbish packers are needed and their purchase has been held in abey- ance pending the outcome of the collection bidding proposal. No Award Bids for new packers were opened last November but no award was made.
