White House officials said the fact that Nixon policy of having his conversation recorded for Quot historical Quot purposes has become Public knowledge prompted him to decide to end the practice Nixon s qualities As a Tough fighter showed through his Hospital pallor Friday As he left Bethesda naval Hospital talked to aides at the White House and then with his Friend c. G. Rebozo motored almost three hours to his Mountain Retreat for a weekend of rest and planning. Will stay on Job with reporters present Nixon told a group of staff members assembled in the White House Rose Garden Quot any suggestion that this president is Ever going to slow Down or is Ever going to leave this office. Is just Plain Quot we Are going to stay on this Job until we get the Job be said. He told the staff Quot i want you to know when i come Back from Camp David monday morning it is going to be full tilt All the White House sources said Nixon a refusal to turn Over the watergate tapes is based on the continued on Page 3, column 9 Relief delayed then elections Are just a few months a a away every politician pretends a lot of interest in All clauses of taxpayers. In an Quot off year they Are never quite so concerned. Those who toil through these hot summer Days for a envelope or Check that is already overtaxed should develop a Long memory. Relief from the onerous tax forced on All wage earners in this state by the present administration had been hoped for july i. It seemed to be promised by both parties when the Battle of the budget was raging in Harrisburg. Now the latest word on the subject is that tax Cut on personal income will be delayed until fall. Sweat sweat and More sweat seems to be the theme in Harrisburg. No Cooling Breeze from a tax Cut is going to be forthcoming at this time. If perfect honesty prevailed in the present state administration the word might get out that Quot we need until fall to find new ways to spend your Money so that a tax Cut will not be in making the present Flat income tax so obnoxious to most taxpayers the schemers Hope to delude the people of the state into voting for a constitutional amendment that would allow a graduated income tax to be imposed. They argue that then the people most Able to would take up most of the Load. They neglect to warn that the Load then will be increased to a Point where everyone will be paying More. Spend spend and spend and elect elect and elect prove to be an outworn truism in these Days when taxpayers in this state and in ail other parts of the country Are thinking about a tax revolt. The average Blue Collar worker in this state is now paying from $250 to $300 More in state taxes than he paid before the Shapp administration forced an income tax through. A Promise to reduce the tax and to Reform the state sales tax system has never been kept. The Promise to delete thousands from the state payrolls has not Only been broken but latest figures show almost 12,000 additional people on the payrolls and the increases in expenses Are staggering. Working people cannot afford the loss of several Days to go to Harrisburg to stage a mass protest. They can and should spend the postage to protest by mail and to Promise the spenders to replace them in 1974 if Quick action is not taken to give them the needed tax cuts within the next few weeks. A mass demand for such Relief for those who work and earn their living would bring results. Many legislators might even Welcome such pressure from the folks Back Home. It would be an indication that the majority of pennsylvanians Are very much concerned about the High Cost of government in this state. Just a few weeks ago tax Relief starting july i 1973, was very much in the news of those who the taxes do not react now it Well be that july i 1974, will come and go and still there will be no tax Cut for those who deserve it most.
