To fi- nance his program, Gilligan recommended en- actment ol Ohio's first personal income tax. By LEE LEONARD UPI Statehouse Reporter COLUMBUS (UPI) Gov. John J. Gilligan Monday night presented a record ?91 billion two-year budget requiring an additional burden of billion to the taxpayers of Ohio The governor offered his pio- posals for fiscal 1972-73 in a special budget tax message to the General Assembly. To finance his programs, Gil- ligan recommended enactment of Ohio's first personal income tax graduated from 1 to 8 per cent. He said it raise million in the first year if levied by July 1. The total budget offered by the governor represented an in- crease of ?21 billion over the continuation" budget prepared by the administration of former Gov James A Rhodes How- ever, inflated existing tax; re- ceipts and federal funds furnish an estimated million toward the spending hike. Under Gilligan's program, additional spending of mil- lion for the first year would go toward basic education, Medi- caid and welfare. The personal income tax, a corporate net income tax and closing' sales tax loopholes would provide billion in the first year, but the governor ac- companied this new revenue re- quest with a proposal for million worth of tax relief, in- cluding property tax rollbacks, real estate tax ci edits for the elderly and repeal of Ohio's taxes on corporation franchises and stocks and bonds ____ "This is the gieatest lax 10- form package ever produced in thib state and maybe in any Gilligan said The goveinor said he made heavy cuts in departmental le- quests in arriving at his final budget, slashing proposals would have doubled the state's spending. "If the budget presented to you tonight is approved as I submitted he said, Ohio will be neither a high- tax nor a big-spending state We will rank 30th among our sister states in the union both state revenues and in state ex- penditures below aveiage, but no longer at the bottom of the list "This budget is, then, not the end, but the beginning of our efforts not to spend oui selves Muskingum Speaker Dismayed Sympathy Expressed For Arabs A Biblical archeologist ex- pressed dismay at Muskmgum College Monday that so many Americans are about Vietnam and '-hawks" on behalf of Israel against the Arabs. Dr. John C. Trever, professor of religion at Baldwin College, expressed sympathy for the Arabs in the 3Iiddle East crisis and charged that the six day war of 1967 was the result of over reaction by the Israelis to comparato ely minor provocations by their Arab neighbors. was the result of an at- titude by the Israelis claiming 10 eyes for an eye and 10 teeth for a he declared. Dr. Trever was one of a series of speakers to participate in a month long World Vision Academy sponsored by Musfcmgum College in New Concord to focus attention on the troubled Middle East. He described this country's support of Israeli as "un- He disputed the claim that Israel is the only democratic country in the Middle East. "It's a police state." 'he claimed. ''Lebanon is far more democratic." Dr Trever said that "we're dealing with a racist state with democracy only for the If he were president of the II S. he said he'd tell the Israelis "Abide bv the United Nations resolution of 1967 or we will not supply arms or permit tax deductible contributions to Israel." The speaker, -who has par- ticipated in a number of ar- cheological projects in the Holy Land and figured in the original study of the Dead Sea scrolls, said he had attempted for years t o maintain a balanced viewpoint on the Arab Israeli question. He managed to do so, he said, until 1967 when the six day war left him "too deeply disturbed" to remain neutral. emotional response to that situation was more than my balance could take." he said. He declared that it was -stupid" of U. N. Secretary General U Thant to withdraw peace keeping forces so hastily at the demand of Egypt S President Nasser in 1967. That was the move which set the stage for the six day war. Dr. Trever described the Arabs as a peace loving people" who had turned to the Soviet Union for help only because the U. S. had turned its back on" them. "The Arabs do not want Russian he said. "They accepted help from Moscow because they weie desperate." Of the refugee situation, he refuted statements by Israeli spokesmen that most of the Arabs had left their homeland voluntarily. As one who was there at the time, in 1947 and 1948. he said the Arabs "were driven at gunpoint" from their homes.

Reds Attack South Viets Sumvan To Leave Television S4IGON and infantry in a North Vietnamese force of men attacked a South Vietnamese outpost in Laos Monday and stopped a drive on a huge supply dump astride the Ho Chi Minh Trail. The outpost stood fast with strong U.S Air support which knocked out seven tanks. A major battle appeared to be shaping up. Across the border, in South Vietnam's northwest corner, Communist gunners subjected the U. S. support base at Khe Sanh to its heaviest barrage since the Laos offensive began Feb. S, firing 150 mortars and rockets into American posi- tions. No US. casualties were reported but some South Vietnamese were hurt and a few American helicopters were damaged. The focus of action in Laos Mondav was Fire Support Base Lolo, an outpost nine miles east of the Ho Chi Minh Trail center of Sepone. Brig. Gen. Pham Van Phu, commander of South Vietnam's 1st Infantry Division, said Communist pressure on Lolo and other points had blocked his troops trying to reach a big North Vietnamese ammunition dump and a fuel pipeline. Phu said South Vietnamese defenders of Lolo fought a series of clashes with North Vietnamese forces throughout Monday in the area, including one to o-hour battle at the base perimeter before the Commu- nists were beaten back. Soviet- built T34 tanks fired S8mm guns at Lolo and U.S. Air Force pilots reported knocking out one column of seven Communist tanks in the fight. Three other tanks were reported destroyed Sunday. Phu said the entire 2nd Division of the Nortfl Vietnam- ese Army men at full strength was moving in units of between 500 and 3.000 troops into the Lolo area to protect the supply base.

Nutrition Questioned In All-Meat Dog Food WASHINGTON federal agencies have joined private veterinarians in ques- tioning nutrition claims for fortified, all-meat dog foods, it was learned Monday. In response to questions, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) said they were checking whether scienti- fic knowledge backed up claims that exclusive feeding of such dog foods provides a "com- or "balanced" diet for pets. The dog foods in question ai e made of meat and meat byproducts, fortified with vita- mins and minerals. As a result of what some veterinary experts call "snob appeal." these products have grown in popularity. Until late last year, all-meat dog foods without added vita- mms and minerals were widely sold. Most firms added the nutrients following publication of scientific studies showing adverse effects from exclusive feeding of meat diets. According to an article in the Feb. 15 issue of the Journal of the American Veterinary Medi- cal Association the "all-meat syndrome" had be- come a familiar veterinarians' term for ailments associated with such a diet. A few unfortified meat dog foods are still sold. But it is mostly, if not exclusively, those with added vitamins and minerals which claim to provide a or diet. In separate interviews, two leading veteri- narians told UPI these claims arc questionable. One is Dr. Donald A. Price of Chicago, who edits JAVMA. Jury To Get Calley Case FT.
