Vaskon White spoke on behalf of the1 request which, in a letter to the council, asks deannexation of an 80 tract running south from SH 12 at Monte Vista Road. White does not live on the tract but resides just south of it. The problem is White said Monte Vista Road. Dave Gray, county commissioner, had given assur- ances that if the property were deannexed from the city he would take step's to upgrade Monte Vis- ta. The tract was annexed in 1955. A real estate development was planned but never materialized. The north end is owned by Thom- as Coon and the Griffith Realty Co. (The Oak Hills Drive-in loca- tion) and the south 60 acres of the tract is owned by E, G. Ken- dall. White pointed out that there were no plans for development of the area. The request was filed simply in the hopes that Monte Vista could be materially up- graded. Councilman Joe Bonar wonder- ed if county commissioners could not provide maintenance on a city street that was- an extension of a county road. Then Dave Howe questioned the wisdom of deannexing the tract in relation to the continuing discus- sion on planning and zoning. "We need some time on Mayor Carl Mayhall Jr. said, "We need to study the whole scope of this problem if Metropolitan Area Planning and Zoning doesn't go." I Dr. Charles K Spencer and is Certain opposition to the pro- gram has developed and the coun- cil is obviously -looking ahead in case the program bogs down. Some opposition in areas adjacent tothe city has insisted Metropoli- tan'Area Planning and Zoning is a prelude to annexation. Actually, the reverse is prob- ably true. If Metropolitan Area Planning and Zoning fails, it is most likely that the city will be forced into a program of annexa: tion. If the program moved ahead successfully, the city would have little reason to. embark" on an annexation campaign. Another councilman noted if planning and zoning fails, "we- may simply have to annex areas for our own protection.'.'. City Manager J. B. Davidson suggested if the program were. done to bring traffic ordinances in line'with current state statutes. The council took no action on the new code but will continue their discussions at future meetings. Finally the 'meeting was ad- journed until Wednesday at noon. The adjournment was prompted by Tuesday's bond election and the prospect of final action on signing a contract for -architec- tural work on the new city hall. A contract was sent to the meet- ing from the Oklahoma City firm of Hudgins, Thompson and Ball. No representative of the firm was present. City Manager J. D. Da- vidson said the Oklahoma City firm felt the council might hold a more open discussion without some member of the firm pres- ent. At the last council meeting, j tj U 4- UKS lllCCUllfc, Mocked, the city would have to Parker, ]oca! architect, give "some serious study to out-: _......, AAm give some of-city services." White stressed there were no hidden motives in the request. It was motivated strictly by a desire to get action on Monte Vista, Mayor Mayhall said, "there have been some 'aginers' in the county and they have been pretty lively. We thought this was a wonderful program. We had sort of a childish faith it would go right over." White then suggested that the north 20 acres be left in the city, if this would be any help, and the south 60 acres deannexed. The council then voted to table the request for further study. Most of the remainder of the council in discussion of a revised traffic code for the city. The revision is the work of appeared.. He asked, if no com- mittment had been made on the project, that his firm be con- sidered. Council members seemed to agree they were obligated to the Oklahoma City firm and a degree of committment was there. Councilman Howe questioned, however, the public relations aspect of approving a contract on the building prior to final voting in Tuesday's election, indicating he felt such action might have an adverse effect on the city hall proposition. Mayor Mayhall stressed the need for haste on the. project. City Manager Davidson indicated fed- eral sources wanted projects un- der PWAA grants to get off the (Continued on Two) Schools Are Worth Over Millions The Board of Education Monday night moved rapidly through a light agenda, with only two items of business up for consideration. Clifford Green, representing the group of Ada insurance men who handle the school system's prop- erty insurance, submitted to the board a revaluation of school buildings and their contents, to be effective during the next year. The five-year policy taken out by the board two years ago calls for such a reappraisal of values annually, thus keeping the insur- ance up to date. The policy gives the whole system blanket cover- age on 90 per cent of "actual cash value." "Actual cash Green ex- plained, is determined by the esti. mated cost of replacement, with an allowance for depreciation. Increased building costs, plus additional construction this year at Willard School, increased the total valuation of school buildings to from last year's Contents increased from to The board approved the new schedule and authorized Supt. Rex 0. Morrison to accept. The only other matter before the board was a resolution pre- pared by G. C. Mayhue Jr., by which the school system would j return to the Mayhue heirs a five- acre tract north of the city. The tract was deeded to the schoo: system about 10 years ago by Mayhue's father, the late G. C. Mayhue. The board had previously agreed to return the tract to the Mayhues if it could be done legally. Mayhue in turn had agreed to pay the amount of taxes which had been "lost" over the 10-year period by taking the tract off the tax rolls. Mayhue noted in an accompany- ing letter that he had sent a copy of the resolution to the state at- torney general, through the coun- ty attorney, for an opinion on the legality of such a transaction. The board tabled the resolution, pending a report from the attor- ney general. The meeting, closed with routine payment of claims. Present, in addition to those named, -were Roy Young, chair- man: Vernon Roberts, Millard Lawson and Wayne Pitt, mem. bers; and Miss Ruth Collins, .clerk. Fire Destroys Annex AtMcLish High School Fire razed the McLish High School home economics building in the pre-dawn Tuesday, destroying the structure and all its furnish- ings. Fittstown and Ada firemen fought to contain the blaze in the structure some 75 feet west of the main High School building. School Principal E. L. Pannell, who spotted the blaze, said the fire seriously endangered several school-owned teacher's homes nearby. Furniture was removed from the home of J. D. Enis, superin- tendent, when it appeared flames might engulf the home. The house was watered down with hoses. According to a fire department spokesman the blaze started in the roof. Electrical wiring was blamed. The fire was extinguished at 6 a.m. No estimate of damage could be made early Tuesday morning. The four-room building contain- ed a living room, kitchen, sewing room, and dining room. For years the-building has serv- ed high school students studying the four-year home economics course.

"A few .will come in December of this year, a few in 1963 and a few in Nehru said. The prime minister described the planes as samples of the pro- duction from the MIG factory the Soviet Union has promised to build in India. Defense Minister Y. B. Chavan told Parliament the Soviet Union had given assurances 'to the Indi- an ambassador in Moscow that the MIGs would be delivered "in De- cember or a little later." He did not say how many. Coming Soon Six MIGs originally were sched- uled for delivery in December and six in January. The factory is scheduled for completion in two to four years. Soon after Red China invaded India in the Himalayas, reports circulated that the Soviet Union was reconsidering the deal, appar- ently for fear of soiling her al- ready unpleasant relations with Red China. Last Friday reliable sources here said the Soviet Union had postponed delivery of the MIGs until the factory is near comple- tion. The report was denied by authorized sources in Moscow, No Doubts "There was no question at any lime of the Soviet Union backing out of the commitment they- Nehru declared. He said, however, there had been some uncertainty over the timing of delivery "not because of China" alone, but partly because of the Cuban crisis. Mrs. Lakshmi Menon, Nehru's parliamentary secretary for for- eign affairs, told newsmen in Colombo, Ceylon, India will not abide by Red China's plan to leave a 12Vi-mile wide demilitarized zone on each side of the northeast frontier.

Hearings Open Today On Rules For Implementing Controversial Tax Law WASHINGTON (AP) The Internal Revenue Service today announced it has started easing proposed regula- tions, sharply criticized by business, which are' aimed at ending "expense account living." Mortimer M. Caplin, IRS made the an- nouncement in a statement opening two days of public hearings on rules implementing the 1962 tax law.. In general the regulations call for' more detailed record keeping to support tax deductions for business travel, entertainment and gifts. Caplin said that on the basis of protest letters receiv- ed so far, "we have -already made positive decisions to liberalize the. regulations, in several specific areas." And he said the- tax collecting agency is giving "seri- ous study" to- one of the most, controversial features of the proposed rule's a requirement that businessmen save receipts for all travel-entertainment-gift outlays of or more. IRS has been receiving about 400 letters a day from businessmen, most of them criticizing the rules proposals issued Nov. 8. In addition, some 60 businessmen, labor leaders and members of Congress lined up to testify at the public hearings. Caplin said' final regulations will be issued in about three weeks, before the new law be- comes effective Jan. 1. Business, spokesmen 'attending the hearing were given an IRS statement detailing the steps 'al- ready contemplated to. ease the .regulations. The statement, said filial rules 'will' record-keeping much different from that required by "many prudently managed One of the changes announced would permit businessmen to put .together the total spent in a sin- gle day for -such miscellaneous travel items as parking, local tel- ephone calls, taxi fares and gaso- line and oil costs. However, the IRS said, it expects to require separate account entries for each meal .paid for through an expense account. As originally proposed, the reg- ulations would have required re- cording of the hoiir of every busi- ness meal. IRS said it was aban- doning this bit of detail and planned to make similar deletions in other sections of the rules. Joel Barlow, a director, contend- ed on behalf of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce that the original proposals would pose "impossible administrative requirements" and amount to-a "callous invasion of privacy." In the first of two days of hear- ings on the regulations, Barlow, a Washington said in pre- pared testimony that the propos- als would require endless and cost- ly detailed recordkeeping and dup- lication of records! "They also move in the direc- tion of requiring sworn state- ments, collaborating witnesses, and- an almost-impossible burden of proof in an increasing number of tax.cases. Congress itself has require un- reasonable disclosures, such as those proposed, .and such callous invasion of privacy in collecting Barlow said. IRS Commissioner Mortimer M.
