Overnight lows of zero or be- low were recorded for the second straight night in parts of the South, with the coldest tempera- tures in Mississippi, Arkansas and western Tennessee, where skies were clear. Eldorado, Ark., in the southern part of the state, reported 3 be- low zero before midnight. Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and parts of Tennessee the highest daytime readings since up to eight inches of snow fell Tuesday and Tuesday night. Some relief from nearly a week of frigid weather came to most of the snow-covered sections of the Midwest. And a warming trend was indicated for broad sections from the Rockies into New England. The most significant tempera- ture moderation in the Midwest was from the central and north- ern Plains states into the Upper The Weather Bureau promised; Mississippi Valley and the west- high temperatures in the 30s over At Last-Other Side Of Record By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS For the first lime in days, the Oklahoma weatherman turned ov- er his record and played the other side forecasting warmer tempera- tures.

Read- ings were some 20 to 30 degrees higher than the near .and below zero marks that had gripped the area for the past several days.

Kennedys Request For Tax Authority Gets Cold Reception Two House Groups Play Major Role WASHINGTON suc- cess or failure of much of Presi- dent Kennedy's 19C2 legislative program rests largely in the hands of two House committees headed by conservative Southern Democrats. If these two groups, the rules committee and the ways and means committee, fail to act, the house itself may never get a chance to vote on the proposals Kennedy submitted to Congress Thursday in his State of the Un- ion Message. Conference Within the past week, the Pres- ident has conferred privately and separately at the White House with both chairmen, Rep. Wilbur D. Mills of Arkansas, head of the ways and means committee, and Rep. Howard W. Smith of Vir- Key Congressmen Blast Bid For Standby Powers WASHINGTON (AP) President Kennedy's request for standby powers'to cut income taxes in a recession got a chill-to-frigid reaction today from key congressional leaders. Some House Ways and Means Committee Democrats, who did not want to be Quoted by name, indicated they had no plans to take up'the measure, which would in- volve a reduction of up to 25 per cent in first bracket rates during a recession. The committee would have to originate the-legislation. Sen Harry F. Byrd, D-Va., whose finance committee would have to consider it in the Senate, blasted the plan as unconstitutional. Many Republicans assailed it. The tax request, to be spelled out by the President Jan 22 in his economic report to Congress, was by far the most controversial of his proposals aimed at keep- ing the economy moving upward. Other proposals dealt with the problems of hard-core unemployment and iignt- ing inflation in boom times.: Several of these' proposals arej well advanced in Congress and seem likely to reach Kennedy's desk before Congress shuts up shop. Last year the proposal got the endorsement of a blue-ribbon commission on money and credit their conversations but it is a safe assumption Kennedy did not summon them merely to pass the time of day. Bottleneck Smith's committee has no origi- nal jurisdiction over legislation. JBut it can. and often does, bot- ;tle up bills approved by other committees.

They say it would infringe heavi- ly on one of the most cherished prerogatives of of the revenues. Some liberals who tend to favor the standby principle say they fear it would be relatively easy to lower the income tax rate but almost impossible to raise it back when the recession ended. Kennedy's request for standby authority to initiate public works spending promptly in a recession did not arouse so much opposi- tion and appears to have some chance of passage. However, Byrd said he also would oppose this. The President's proposal for uniform federal standards in the unemployment compensation sys- tem seems certain to face heavy going. This plan has support in the big industrial states but not much elsewhere. Under the law now, each state sets the size and duration of its jobless aid checks. However, prospects looked brighter for these other recom- mendations in the economic area GOP Gets OC Meet Underway OKLAHOMA CITY Pre- dictions of glowing prospects in elections this year and a warning that failure could carry over to 1964 marked today's opening of the Republican National Commit- tee's meeting to map campaign strategy. GOP National Chairman Wil- liam E. Miller said he believes 1962 will see big Republican vic- tories in congressional and state elections. Special Report .Miller, a New York Congress- man, and Rep. Robert Wilson of California, chairman of the Re- publican Congressional Commit- tee, were opening session speak- ers for the meeting. A special investigating commit- tee issued a report emphasizing that a bigger share of labor votes and more strength in minority groups are vital if Republicans are to carry big win presidential elections.

The story was an account of the difficulty in obtaining delayed birth certificates. It stated J. T. Murphy is an assistant to Court Clerk Carl Stewart. The article should have said Abe Holloway. and not Murphy, is the assistant court clerk. Murphy has no connection with the office. The NEWS regrets the error and any embarrassment which might have resulted. Legally, the husband is head of the household and the pedes- train has the. right-of-way. Both are safe as long as they don't try to exercise their rights. (Copr. i Gen. Fea. Corp.) ;
