Ada Evening News, The (Newspaper) - September 26, 1962, Ada, Oklahoma That's one way to collect income taxes. Just go out and grab every red cent of the income before the earner even touches it. Decide now much tax he owes, and give him the change. Shades of King British Choppers Airlift Victims Of Crash, Page 7 THE ADA EVENING NEWS President Eyes New Farm Bill Compromise Item Contains Half Of Original Program WASHINGTON (AP) President Kennedy has re- ceived from Congress a new farm program containing about half of what he re- quested and denounced by a Republican leader as "bait in the trap" for tougher controls later. The bill barreled through the Senate 52 to 41 al- most comfortable margin after its cliff-hanging five-vote victory in the House last week. All 34 Republicans voting op- posed the measure. They were joined by seven Democrats. Difference of Opinion During five hours of debate the program was praised as realistic and fair, and condemned as a monstrosity and worse than no bill at all. The administration has wel- comed the measure as a step in the right direction. Here is what the administration got and didn't get: It got a new and permanent wheat program which it expects to be more effective in limiting production and stabilizing grower prices. More Authority It' got broadened authority to deal with problems of stagnating rural areas incapable of prosper- ing in agriculture. It failed to get a control pro- gram for feed grains. Congress approved a one-year extension oi the present voluntary feed grain retirement program paying farm- ers to idle their land. The wheat program is the ad- ministration's first major com- modity legislative victory since it took office. Wants More Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman has said that a new attempt will be made at the next session to get controls for feed grains and milk and a new pro- gram for cotton. The new wheat program will not go into effect until 1964, and then only if approved by two- thirds of growers voting in a referendum. The bill provides two types of payments to growers who reduce wheat acreages for the 1963 crop by at least 20 per cent. One is an 18-cent-a-bushel payment on the idled land equivalent to half the value of the normal produc- tion on those acres. Else The 1962 wheat crop was grown under a program which required growers to reduce acreages at least 10 per cent from their allot- ments in return for payments. The permanent wheat program will permit a lower acreage allot- ment than the 55-million acre minimum in the present law. It also will assign bushel quotas to individual farms, designed to cov- er domestic food requirements and exports. Each grower would get a certificate entitling him to S2 a bushel on this part of his production.

Gruenther, president of the American Red Cross and for- mer supreme Allied commander in Europe, underwent surgery at Walter Reed Army Hospital today for a lung inflammation. The operation was described by a hospital spokesman as a vein ligation, meaning a vein was tied off to prevent further spread of the trouble. "His condition is guarded but recovery is expected at this the hospital reported. The 63-year-old four-star gener- 'al entered the hospital Sept. 20.

(NEWS Staff Photo by George Apportionment Foes Seek Vote At November Election OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Op- ponents of the constitutional reap- portionment petition, in a sharp reversal, moved today to force a vote on the petition at the Nov. 6 general hop- ing the "silent vote" will help de- feat it, Oklahomans for Local Govern- ment asked the state Supreme Court for a mandamus action forc- ing the Election Board to put the petition on the general election bal- lot. Chief Justice Ben T. Williams said a conference on this "matter of magnitude" would be held be- fore noon. Gov. J. Howard Edmondson's office said he probably would com- ment on the surprising new move shortly. Edmondson long has fought for reapportionment of the legislature to give urban areas a larger voice in government. Edmondson arrived at the Capi- tol at 10 a. m. and went into an immediate conference with his at- torney, Norman Reynolds Jr. The governor said a press conference probably would be held after the court's hearing on the" matter. Petition opponents apparently are trying to make certain a spe- cial election on reapportionment is not called before Nov. 6 and also make sure the petition is on the general election ballot, Edmond- son said. Attorneys Leon Hirsh and Paul Johanning filed the writ of man- damus request with the Supreme Hospital Needs Blood Donors For Operation at the City-State Health Depart- ment from 10 a. m. to 1 p. m. Persons who already know their blood type and wish to help make the surgery possible are asked to call, the Health Department FE 2-2011 Thursday and make an ap- pointment for blood sampling. Those who do not know their blood type and wish to be donors, may report at the hospital while the technologist is here. After the technologist com- pletes her tests donors whose blood cross matches will be noti- fied and asked to report to Uni- versity Hospital in Oklahoma City at 7 a, m.'on the day the surgery is scheduled. Transportation will be furnished the donors by the Pontotoc County Heart Associa- tion. Mrs. Hisle emphasized that sur- gery for Mr. Hale is not possible of potential donors.- She will be] unless eight donors are secured. Eight donors must give blood before Windell F. Hale, 43, 525 Short Street, can have open heart surgery to correct a rheumatic heart condition. His surgery is scheduled at University Hospital, Oklahoma City, October 10, but the surgery is not possible without the eight donors. He has a rare blood type, A- negative. Only four per cent have this type of blood. An urgent ap- peal by Mrs. Paralee Hisle, blood donor chairman of the Pontotoc County Unit of the Oklahoma Heart Association, was made .to- day. Also in Ada Tuesday was Miss Rita Matthews, Oklahoma City, a representative of the state association office. Mrs. Wanda Neugebauer, tech- nologist, will be in Ada Friday morning to take blood samples Tax Agents Grab Purse From Fight U. S. Claims Promoters Owe Monstrous Bill WASHINGTON (AP) Hundreds of federal reve- nue officers fanned out across the country Tuesday j night.and this morning in aj massive drive to seize the' entire proceeds of the Lis- j ton-Patterson heavyweight title fight. The aim was to collect mil- lion in taxes which the govern- ment claims is owed by the fight promoters. The Internal Revenue Service announced that officers moved in Tuesday night on about 260 thea- ters throughout the country which collected.an estimated million from patrons who watched Sonny Listen win the heavyweight.cham- pionship from Floyd Patterson. The fight was telecast over a closed-circuit network. The theaters were instructed to turn over all receipts from the TV show to IRS. Other agents, in an unprece- dented move, served levies against the promoters of the fight and the organizers of the TV showings, demanding that all re- ceipts be handed over, to the gov- ernment. 'Thus, IRS acted to grab the en- tire gate receipts from the one- round bout at Chicago's Comiskey Park, as well as fees paid by the American Broadcasting Co. for rights to cover the fight via radio.

This could lake many months and perhaps more than a year. Another possible result could be J. D. McCarty, Oklahoma City, speaker of the state house of representatives, will speak at the Former Students Associa- tion luncheon on East Central State College's Homecoming Day 'Saturday, Oct. 6. The veteran legislator joins Dr. Charles F. Spencer, presi- dent of the college on the pro- gram. Dr. Spencer will give a con- centrated preview of "What's Ahead for East Central." McCarty is expected 'to devote his time to a picture of the pres- ent and impending situations regarding legislation- and fi- nance for public schools and higher institutions of learning in Oklahoma. Invited as' honored guests of the college for Homecoming are state senators and representa- tives from counties of the East Central District. They will ride in the Home- coming Parade on the morning of the big day, and will be guests of the college at the ESA luncheon and at the East Central Northeastern football game at Norris Stadium begin- ning at p.m. All three segment of the homecoming calebrations are shaping up. At least 27' bands, queen candidates galore, and many floats, compose the pa- rade. Stimulating discussions and much "reunioning" will highlight the luncheon. And there is always the stirring clash of football teams on the grid- iron. Wind, Rain Rip Villages Across Spain BARCELONA, Spain (AP) Flash floods and hurricane winds ripped overnight through.a group of villages in a hilly region near Barcelona spokesman and said a government more than 600 persons are dead or missing. The spokesman said 246 bodies have been recovered and 395 per- sons are unaccounted for. Fresh thunderstorms continued :cross 'the area, where several hours of heavy rain and high winds 'smashed many homes and other Officials said- the death' toll might rise. Several villages, whose residents normally worked in textile plants near Barcelona, were almost wiped out by the floods, which followed months of dry weather. The floods struck a few hours after the windup of a Barcelona religious festival, named Nuestra Senora de la Our Lady of which runs for a week each fall. The event had included a song festival with entrants from many nations. The victims included families who were .sleeping. Their houses caved in and trapped them under the debris.

Today they dropped a final legal move to block a vote. Dismissed was an appeal filed -Tuesday to the petition's ballot title. The petition was upheld by the state Supreme Court almost two months ago. But protestants kept the order from becoming final un- til this week by threatening to ap- peal to the U. S. Supreme Court. A state question voted on in the general election must get a maj- ority of all votes cast in .the big- gest race. Thus if more votes were cast in the governor's race than on the reapportionment question, they would in effect go against it. In a special election a state question must receive only 'a maj- ority of the votes cast for or against it.

None of the wounded was hurt critically. Negroes had gathered near the police station, shouting, "We want Mason." Chief of Police-Roosevelt Hoskins said "there was a lot of yelling and scuffling. They began calling names at the policemen." The violence in the all-Negro community stemmed from the shooting of Darnell Dortch, 20, by police officer Israel Mason, 74, Sunday. Mason, a Negro, resigned Tuesday. He said Dortch refused to accept a careless driving war- rant and was shot as they fought for possession of Mason's pistol.

Red Fishing Port May Menace Panama Canal WASHINGTON (AP) U.S. defense sources said today they believe the port to be built in Cuba with Soviet assistance is a camouflage for a naval base which could threaten the Panama Canal. They said a port. equipped to overhaul, repair, and supply So- viet and Cuban trawlers could also serve as a support base for submarines and torpedo boats. Prime Minister Fidel Castro unveiled the plans for a port in a television speech 'Tuesday. He didn't specify the location but a later communique announcing signing of the Soviet-Cuban agree- ment said the dock and facilities for between 115 and 130 medium trawlers would be in Havana Bay. It was reported in Havana that Soviet crews would instruct Cu- bans in the use of Soviet trawlers and that the fleet ultimately would become the property of Cuba.

Some military authorities said construction of a Soviet port 'in Cuba appears part of a world-wide plan to position Soviet naval trawlers are anything but purely power where it could pinch off key Allied shipping routes.' Sources familiar with the move- ments of Soviet fishing trawlers said they normally work along the Grand Banks, in the North At- lantic. "They don't get down that far in legitimate one officer said in referring to Cuban waters where the new base will be built. Although Castro did not say where the new port would be located, there was strong evidence it would be on the Bahia de Nipe, an excellent bay on Cuba's north- east coast -across the island from the U.S. naval base at Guan- tanamo. Officially, the U.S. .government kept silent on Castro's announce- ment. The White House said The Russians have built a base had no comment. Privately, mili- tary officials were deeply con- cerned.

Oh, Well Meredith shrugged to a newsman at the airport, "at least I'm getting a lot of flying time." He obviously was referring to Tuesday's flight from New Or- leans. The adamant governor met him at the door of the State Col- lege Board office and rejected him. Four hours after Barnett open- ly defied federal court orders and turned Meredith down, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals at New Orleans directed the 64-year- old governor to appear in New Orleans Friday to face contempt charges. No Plans In Washington, a Defense De- partment spokesman said that no military units have been alerted for possible movement to Missis- sippi in the dispute. There have been reports Army elements might be sent into the state to enforce the court orders. Ole Miss registrar Robert B. Ellis said he would be in his of- fice to register Meredith if he appeared. Ellis said he would act under direct orders from the State Col- lege Board and federal courts. Barnett repeatedly has vowed to go to jail rather than deseg- regate the university where he received his law degree with honors. He has also threatened to close Ole Miss. A source close to the Appeals Court in New Orleans said it ap- peared federal troops would be necessary to enforce the judicial decrees. "The court has gone as far as it can said the source. Troops from the 101st Airborne Division were ordered into Little Rock, Ark., to enforce court- directed public school desegrega- tion there in 1957. The federal ac- tion came after Gov. Orval E.
