Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y., proposed today that Congress enact a billion incentive tax cut benefiting Individuals and corporations be- fore it goes home. And Javits, often a supporter of administration proposals, criti- cized President Kennedy for what ho called "agonizing indecisive- ness." Kennedy said several weeks ago that he would study economic in- dicators then decide whether to (chairmen on this tax cut issue .......only dramatizes his Javits declared in a speech pre- pared for delivery before the Senate. "Instead of telling the nation what .is needed, the President seems more interested in telling the nation what committee chair- men, of his own party, will ap- said the New York sen- ator. Javits said his tax proposals ask for an immediate tax cut to spur the economy. He has indi- cated he might announce a deci- sion later this month. The domestic economy "is mov- ing sideways in such a way as to present a clear and present dan- ger of another said Javits. "The extraordinary way the President is seemingly transfer- ring his leadership to committee would eliminate income taxes for persons earning less than a year; would reduce maximum personal taxes from 91 to 63 per cent; would drop corporation tax rates from 52 to 50 per cent and would include reductions for all other taxpayers with emphasis on I the to bracket. Congress headed into a new round of hearings with a joint Senate-House committee opening a public inquiry today into the economy's health. Before the hearings got under way, -a committee member. Sen. William Proxmire, D-Wis., blasted policies of the Federal Reserve Board 'as "economy slow-down" policies. "For the Federal Reserve Board to deliberately force up interest rates as high as. it has been do- ing, is to throw sand into the he said in a statement today. Thus Proxmire went on record Sewer Will Serve Big City Area City councilmen Monday evening heard Harry Hulett Jr., Oklahoma City engi- neer, report the projected sewer district on the east- ern limits of the city would serve "95 per cent" of those who desired the service. Hulett says the area which will be served will be much wider than the original boosters of the project envisioned. The project will be a dual affair property owners in the dis- trict handling their portion of the expense and the city, via the Ada Public Works Authority, the city's first trust, standing for service lines into the area. Figures Are Due Hulett hopes to have the final figures on this district ready for the next council meeting along final figures on the next scheduled paving district. Hulett reported he had met with little success in getting two of the paving companies which did in recent districts to return for some needed repair. Councilmen authorized City At- torney Lawrence Green to contact bonding companies involved on performance bonds .to secure the necessary repairs. Two Areas Involved Two areas in particular are In- volved, Cherry at the Eighteenth intersection and on South Constant near Thirteenth. The council also heard a report from the Metropolitan Area Plan- ning and Zoning Commission. It gave approval for Christine Green to open a one-operator beauty shop in her home, 729 East Four- teenth. Zoning Change Sought The commission also recom- mended a change in zoning for blocks lots 1 through 4 in Block 42 to an R-3 rating. This change was sought by Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Ballard, who reportedly plan- ned to construct a nursing home. The Ballards also requested a change to a C-2 rating. This ap- plication was disallowed. Review Asked While the commission did en- dorse the change to R-3, it noted that plans for construction should be presented for review before the change is actually made. The lots are located on Townsend near Fifth. Council members approved pay- ment of S10.450.80 to in advance on the city's lighting contract. Payment in advance se- cures a sizeable discount for mu- nicipalities. Contract Approved A contract for with Bob Lehr, urban planner, was approv- ed. The contract is for one year and assures that Lehr will be available for duty with the Metro- politan Area Planning and Zoning Commission in its work here. Councilmen expressed the hope that the county would also under- write a portion of this expense. The meeting adjourned with the usual approval of claims. Driver Strikes Flagman, Leaves with some other committee mem- bers who have expressed concern that a tax cut-or next year might result in a greatly increased budg- et deficit with little bolstering, of the the reserve board adopts lower-interest, easi-. er-credit policies. Federal Reserve Chairman Wil- liam McChesney Martin Jr. has defended the board's position, con- tending that interest rates .must be pegged high enough so that U.S. capital won't be attracted abroad, which would aggravate the nation's balance of payments deficit. Nearing the end of its hearings, the House Ways and Means Com- mittee was scheduled to hear to- day from Secretary of the Treas- ury Douglas Dillon and Budget Director David Bell. The businessman's view was given today by Ladd Plumley, president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Plumley said the chamber's call for a quick, deep and permanent tax slash doesn't mean it has abandoned its goal of a balanced budget. In an address prepared for de- livery before the Advertising Club of Washington, Plumley said the chamber would expect a tax cut "to be coupled with a spending policy which will produce a balanced budget" On Monday, Secretary of Labor Arthur J. Goldberg reported on. one facet of the economy's health." He said the number of major labor market areas experiencing substantial unemployment fell from 51 in June to 48 in the lowest in two years. Areas in which idle rates shifted to less than 8 per cent of their work force were Spokane, Wash.; Mus- kegon-Muskegon Heights, Mich., and Utica-Rome, N.Y.

The state-owned Israeli El Al Airline silent about British orders to ferry the fugitive spy on to the United States sent off its Lon- don-New York plane with- out him. The next El Al airliner for New York leaves London Friday. That is 3G hours after expiration of Britain's deadline for getting rid of the espionage agent who faces a life term for smuggling U.S. secrets to the Soviet Union. Deadline Looms The British Home Office last week gave the airline until mid- night Wednesday to arrange con- tinuation of Soblen's trip from Tel Aviv to New York, a trip that he interrupted by slashing a wrist abdomenrjn.a vain.-bjd.for, asylum in Britain. Israel responded that the line would not take him to New York. If forced to accept him as a pas- senger, the Israelis said they would fly him back to Israel and he might there seek a haven else- where. No Comment The Home Office said today the line has so far failed to disclose its arrangements, so Soblen will remain in prison tonight.' El Al declined comment. The British Press Association said this morning Soblen might be shipped out aboard the Israeli flight to New York this afternoon. But he was not among the pas- sengers when the plane took off at p.m. Soblen, 61-year-old psychiatrist, landed here July 1 after stabbing himself aboard a New York-bound plane and became the center of an unprecedented three-nation tangle. Go To Jail The United States wants him to serve his sentence. Britain wants to get him to New York but apparently lacks legal power to assure it since his case is not extraditable. The Israeli government, having once expelled him as an illegal immigrant, now apparently is pre- pared to take him back to test this expulsion in the courts or lot him find refuge in Communist Czechslovakia, which has offered to accept him.

That's what the United States Weather Bureau says, while Ada slowly melts away in the hottest weather In a decade. The high here yesterday was 103 and temperatures .were predicted to beat that mark today 105 or more. The "cold front" is one of those things the weather bureau comes up with. It's allegedly advancing across the state from southwest to northeast. The forecast, however, calls for temperatures "a little warmer" than yesterday. There were readings like this across the state yes- terday: Frederick, 110; Altus, 108; Hobart, 107; Okla- homa City, 104; Fort Sill, 103; Clinton, 103; Gage, 101; Ardmore and McAlester, 100 and Guymon, "only" 96.

Youth Drowns In Pond At Fitzhugh A 16-year-old Fitzhugh community youth drowned late Monday afternoon in an attempt to swim across a farm pond southwest of Fitzhugh.

According, to the .Ada Fire De- partment the boys reported young Cupps attempted to swim across the pond but apparently grew tired only 15 feet from the bank. Hicks reported he heard the victim cry for help. He said he dived in after Cupps, and was tow- ing him to shore when Cupps be- came panicky and pulled him un- der the water. Hicks lost his grip on the boy during the struggle. The two boys called a neighbor after the incident, who relayed a message to the Ada Fire De- partment and an Ada ambulance. The department used a resusci- ta-tor in an attempt- to revive Cupps, but Fire Chief Dudley Young said the victim showed no response after about 15 minutes of work. Young said the boy had been in the water some 30 minutes before recovery. The other boys reported young Cupps was not a very good swim- mer.

Celebrezze's figures covered the distribution of the drug by the American manufacturer to U.S. doctors for experimental use while efforts were being made to obtain clearance from the Food and Drug Administration for its release. His report did not take account of the case 'of a New York woman who gave birth to a malformed baby after receiving the drug from a Park Avenue psychiatrist who obtained supplies from Germany before it was associated with cas- es of deformity. in Europe. The child lived1 only 41 minutes. There have also been a few cases of deformity of children born in this country to women who had taken the pills overseas or otherwise obtained them from abroad.

He explained 'that the number of doctors' having the drug exceeds There were 74 doctors who had some of the drug on hand when the survey was made, with the supplies totalling tablets.

U.S. Dist Judge Joseph Sam Perry dismissed an in- junction suit filed by five unions representing operating employes. He also turned down union pleas that the -injunction suit be amended to conform with the railroads' latest job-re- duction notice. The action, which will be fi- nalized by a written order to signed Wednesday, leaves in ef- fect an order from the railroads for the immediate dismissal of diesel firemen .when it be- comes effective Aug. 16. It opens the way for referral of the dispute-to the White House which could appoint an emergen- cy board to prevent any strike for at least 60 days. JFK Supports? The railroads are, in effect, banking on support from tie Ken- nedy administration in their long battle to change tradition-har- dened union working rules. In a surprise move Monday, the railroads announced that drastic new work rules will go into effect Aug. 16 for operating em- ployes. The proposals are another step, the railroads say, toward elimina- tion of essary jobs and too many union workers to do them. No More Firemen The proposed changes, among other things, would eliminate the jobs of diesel firemen. The announcement came after union and railroad attorneys had just finished battling in U.S. Dis- trict Court over whether much less stringent changes in the work rules would be permitted. Those proposed changes would cut out about diesel firemen's jobs. But railroad spokesmen said that, regardless of Perry's deci- sion, they would press ahead with plans to require longer train runs without crew changes and other new regulations long opposed by the unions. They'll Strike Union officials have vowed to strike before any such rules, changes can be put into effect without their agreement. The railroads, however, are con- fident there will be no least at this point Rail spokesmen said a work stoppage will not be touched off because the railroads do not ex- pect their stringent rules changes to be put into effect Aug. ever. They do expect their threat to apply the new rules to bring ap- pointment by President Kennedy of an emergency fact-finding board, automatically barring- a strike for 60 days. The board would have to come up with recommendations lor set- tling the dispute within 30 days. The railroads bave issued two notices to their operating employes.
