Bishops Plead For Family Stability By The Associated Press WASHINGTON Nov Roman Catholic bishops of the United States joined today in an appeal for restoration of the virtues and practices guaranteeing family sta bility and peace They said the family faces a present danger more fearsome than the atom bomb The bishops issued the statement at the close of their annual meet ing here which was attended by more than 150 bishops archbishops and the four United States cardi nals They called for a just measure of economic security arid for so cial legislation and social action to improve mans economic oppor tunity to enable him to marry early to free him from the peril of unnaturally limiting his family and to afford him some certainty of sufficiently gainful employment and some assurance that death or acci dent will not reduce his dependents to the status of public charges The bishops did not mention Federal aid to education a hotly controversial issue before Congress but they said that the State can not make discrimination among families distributing common bene fits to some and withholding them from others This appeared to bear out the Catholic position that Federal aid should not be limited to public schools The State must respect the rights of the family they said It must not therefore fail to provide op portunities for the adequate hous ing of families for the requisite schooling of children for the use of common benefits supplied through the taxing of citizens It must not discount parental authority by invading the home and legislating upon matters which are of strictly domestic concern It must be neither arbitrary nor tyrannous It must not usurp the right which belongs to parents of educating their children On this score the part of the State is to furnish opportunity for schooling and to see that parents are not recreant in making use of the op portunity on behalf of their chil dren The State cannot force a child to attend this school or that it cannot prescribe courses of study that may involve intellectual or moral dangers for pupils No nation can be greater than its families the bishops continued Another GI Insurance Deadline Due Jan 1

the near fu By The Associated Press WASHINGTON Nov 20 It Would take an 18 percent increase in individual and corporate income taxes to make up this years an ticipated Federal deficit Senator Martin RPa said today He made the estimate in reply to a statement by President Tru man that he will ask Congress in January to vote higher taxes Mr Truman has estimated that the de ficit by June 30 1950 will be 500000000 Martin said he thinks It will be closer to Taking the Presidents figure however Martin said To close the gap would require an average increase of 18 percent In the Income tax paid by every In dividual and 18 percent in the cor porate tax paid by every business Are you ready to shoulder an increase of 18 percent in your in come tax T I think such a burden chould not be added to the heavy tax load our people are already carrying x x x If there is to be any change in Federal tax levels I favor reducing them xxx The solution lies not in taxing more but in spending less Martin made
