I mild tuesday Low 60 High 85 Complete weather a-2 tax hike needed Fowler by Edmond Lebreton Washington apr Secretary of the Treasury Henry h. Fowler offered Congress a Stark Choice today reject president Johnson a tax increase and open the Way for a possible 629-billion deficit or enact it and still face the Prospect of $14 billion to $18 billion red Ink spending. Those Fowler told the House ways and Means committee Are the hard facts of the nations fiscal situation. He said that with economies the government plans to make and with the to per cent income tax surcharge which he called a a moderate temporary emergency increase a the Treasury can hold its borrowing Down to a level that will not disrupt markets and shoot interest rates up. Thus he said widespread inflation can be avoided. Budget director Charles l. Schultze backed Fowler a estimate of the deficit and said a we Are determined to Cut More than 61.5 billion in spending. A we Are aiming at a Cut of Over 62 billion As a Means of holding civilian expenditures below the january estimate a Schultze continued. Fowler said the estimate submitted in january for the year that began july11 May now be exceeded by As much As 68.5 billion including 64 billion for defense and that revenues May be As much As 67 billion less than had been anticipated. Fowler sought to show that the proposed tax increase is less heavy than those enacted under comparable circumstances in the past. He said that during world War ii personal income taxes were raised by the equivalent of 730 per cent and the taxes associated with the korean War were equivalent to about a 28 per cent surcharge. In contrast he said a married couple with two children and a 610,000 salary typically would pay about 61u More under the pending surtax proposal or not much More than one per cent of total income. Johnson in a series of ses Sions with House democrats has Laid out the main lines of the administration argument a deficit possibly approaching $30 billion would mean inflation higher interest rates scarce Money for the Small business and individual Borrower and quite Likely disaster for the Home building Industry.

In South Roxana state raps Lagoon by Dick Fackler Telegraph staff writer the Illinois sanitary water Board in an official report has officially recognized Long standing complaints of malfunctions in South Roxanas sewage la Goon marking the first major failure of a Telegraph area Lagoon. Lagoons in Godfrey township and Alton have functioned adequately although like South Roxana the Youngblood Lagoon in Godfrey was slow in filling a Check disclosed. The report issued on the malfunctioning sewage Lagoon operated by the South Roxana sanitary District is scheduled to be taken up by the districts Board two girls killed by Glacier Park bears West Glacier Mont. Apr the superintendent of Glacier National Park says lightning May have goaded two grizzly bears into killing two 19-year-old girls Early sunday As they slept in sleeping bags in this rugged wilderness. Killed in the separate incidents 20 Miles apart in the mountainous Park on the Tana Canada Border were Julie Helgeson of Albert Lea minn., and Michele Koons of san die go Calif. Roy Ducat 18, of Perrysburg Ohio was seriously injured by the Bear that killed miss Helgeson. Forest rangers pressed a search for the killer animals. Park supt. Keith Neilson said his Only theory on the attacks was that lightning strikes in the Park alarmed the normally shy near sighted grizzlies into attacking. Lightning started 14 Forest fires in the Park saturday and sunday. More than 400 firefighters tried to control them. The Park has had no rain since june. A there seems to be an association Between the lightning and the attacks a Neilson said a but we can to be sure. There is no Scarcity of natural food and the grizzly is an unusually shy animal. Its strange for them to Cornfield Haven a hidden from View from anyone on the ground is the air plane that crashed near Woodburn sunday afternoon. In front of the plane Are newspapers used for a signal. Air photo by de keen Tim fliers walk from plane crash by l. Allen Klope Telegraph staff writer \ 45-year-old Alton Pilot who was practising Force Landing procedures sunday about noon put the practice into use a few minutes later when his air planet a engine quit. And he was forced into a Corn Field near Woodburn. Neither the Pilot nor his passenger was seriously injured. Robert r. Bishop who once wanted to go to Vietnam and Fly helicopters picked out com stalks to land in because he thought the nine foot stalks would help Cushion his funding i when the wheels of the two place Cessna 140 hit the stalks the plane went Forward on its nose and ended up on its Back. Bishop suffered a Cut lip and a passenger Edwin Sie grist of 4030 Alby St., Alton was unhurt. Both men Felt they were Lucky. A it could have been much worse a said Bishop who had to Force land another Craft on a Highway near Edwardsville last november. Looking Back on sundays adventure Bishop who lives at 1012 Easton ave., Alton had planned to do some aerobatics and practice forced landings and asked Siegrist to go along for the ride. The two men flew out Over Woodburn which is out of any airways and had practice aerobatics and the forced landings and were headed Back to civic memorial Airport when the engine started coughing and finally quit. Bishop said he radioed Alton control Tower at the Airport and reported his position before taking the plane into the Corn Field. He went to a nearby farm Home belonging to or. A n d mrs. Julius Shaw where a hired Man let him Telephone the Airport that he and Siegrist were Allright. Bishop left a Quarter on the table for the phone Call Cost and a note about the Accident. While Bishop was telephoning the Airport Siegrist took an airways map from the plane and checked the emergency procedures. He Learned that two los should be Laid out on the ground to indicate no one was injured and everything was under control so a newspaper in the plane served the purpose As the Marker. Bishop who works As a Barber said he thinks the Carburettor linkage malfunctioned causing his air planet a engine to go to an Idle Speed which would not provide enough Power for flight. Oddly enough he said it was the Carburettor on a rented plane that caused him trouble last november. At that time Bishop who was a student Pilot was practising near Edwardsville when the Carburettor iced up causing the engine to quit so he landed on Rte. 66, without damaging the air plane. A now that i have my u Cense which he got two months ago and have my own plane i have another Accident and total out my own Craft which is valued at about 62,400,�?� Bishop said. He added that he had to give up the idea of flying helicopters in Vietnam because he was about 1% years too old for the warrant officer training program. Bishop said after t h e Federal aviation administration and his insurance company surveys the aircraft in the Field then a truck from Walston aviation will be sent to bring the air plane Back. About two hours before Bishops Accident a student Pilot from Jennings mo., crashed on the runway at civic memorial but he too was uninjured. According to witnesses William e. Hoven was coming in too fast and too High and when about 50 feet off the ground stalled the aircraft which hit nose wheel first.
