Advocate (Newspaper) - January 5, 1964, Victoria, Texas 118th' 241 15- TTLZFHONE HI t-lttl VICTORIA, TEXAS, SUNDAY, JANUARY Established 18M Congress Reconvenes Tuesday LBJ Message Is Awaited WASHINGTON (AP) Con- gress .gets back to work Tues- day, with its first full-dress encounter with President John- sot! set for Wednesday and with much of the business President John F. Kennedy laid before it still unfinished. Johnson's Slate of the Union message, to be delivered to a joint session Wednesday, pre- sumably will affirm what he has already said less formally he Is making Kennedy's program his own, with top em- phasis on enacting an tax cut and a comprehensive civil rights bill. Economy Theme The legislators will be listen- ing closely for Johnson to de- velop furllier some themes he has stressed on his own. One is economy: Johnson is expected to submit a budget in the neighborhood of billion, which would mean additional substantial cuts under the ex- exculive departments' first esti mates, like those already or dered for Defense and the Post Office departments. Johnson also could give more details on his proposal for a major housing program and for a many pronged attack on pov- erty. Real Challenge The last may provide a real challenge to the new adminis- tration. One of President Ken- nedy's major defeats was the House decision, by a five-vote margin, against authorizing more funds for the area rede- velopment program designed to create jobs in chronically de- pressed areas. Several of the major legisla- tive items carried over from the first session will see action this month. The Senate Finance Commit- tee resumes Wednesday consicl eration of the tax-cut bill, with much work still ahead. Only about half of the 56 amend- ments proposed to the bill since Ihe House passed it have been considered. Bights Hearing The House Rules Committee begins hearings on civil rights Thursday. If these drag, spon- Eors of the legislation can be expected to push a discharge petition to bring the bill to the House for a vote. Such a peti- tion requires the signatures ol E18 members, and 170 hac signed when the House ad- [ourned. On Jan. 20, the House Ways and Means Committee, resumes hearings on the plan to provide hospital and nursing home benefits for the aged, financed by an increased Social Security tax. A majority of the commit- tee still is regarded as opposec !o the program. 60 Not Heard When President Kennedy was assassinated Nov. 22, the com- mittee suspended sessions leaving still unheard some 60 witnesses. The health program, which Johnson long has supported could provide a real test of th oth age and length of office.

The reporter asked if that meant the West should get dis- armament from the Soviets in exchange for economic aid. he replied. "That's exactly it." He observed: "Everybody is talking about peace but the world is more heavily armed than it has ever been. The arms are what we should get rid of first." As he sees it, the Soviets' big need is for plants to make ar- tifical fertilizer so farm pro- duction can increase. The Russians can not build the plants themselves.

New Look To Be Taken At City Paving Charges Some "possibly signifi- cant" changes in the city's street assessment paving programs both regular and bond be made by City Council Mon- day, along with a first step toward regulation of park- ing in connection with new construction. City Manager John Lee said that some changes might be made in the as- sessment programs when asked about a "policy statement" which was listed as one item on the published agenda for the Monday council meeting. He said he was not at lib- erty to elaborate on the matter. Concerning parking, he said council is to consider an ordinance pertaining to off-street parking which ap- parently was precipitated by a request for permit to build on unplatted property by the Freeway Church of God in Christ. The church request came up at the last council meet- ing, and a number of the members questioned wheth- er the land area would per- mit off-street parking at the church site. Building In- spector A. E. Haschke said it would not. Lee said Friday that council was taking up the off-street parking ordinance, originally a part of a broad zoning plan, "without going into the full issue of zoning." Zoning, a prerequisite to implementation of the city's master plan, has been stalled by sub rosa op- position for more than three years. The proposed ordi- nance has now been pi- geon-holed for almost a year following the last com- mittee study. Council also Is expected to authorize the engineering department and City Atty. Avgyle McLachlan to pro- ceed with condemnation ac- tion against property owned by W. W. and J. F. Polka on South Navarro Street. The property is needed f o r the extension and widening of Navarro Street as a north-south through street. A request for a city con- tribution to Young Audi- ences Inc. also is listed for consideration by council when it meets at 5 p.m. Monday. The Young Audi- ences program is one which brings outstanding musical groups or individual artists (See PAVING, Page 6A) FOREIGN AID LBJ Favors Major Overhaul WASHINGTON (AP) President Johnson re- portedly favors breaking up the U.S. foreign-aid, pro- ;ram if practical ways can be found to spread its work among other agencies of the government.

His only official visitors were Fohn A. McCone, chief of the Central Intelligence Agency and E. Halaby, head of the Federal Aviation Agency. Reports on Visit In addition to giving the Pres- dent a routine intelligence briefing, the CIA chief reported on a visit he made to former President Dwight D. Eisenhow- er at Palm Springs, Calif.
