Gaylord Nelson when the idea reach- es its senate showdown. The tax withholding bill can be expected to get through the assembly with ease be- cause of its Democratic con- trol, but when the plan reach- es the senate it will face the numerical facts of 20 of 33 senators being Republi- cans. These include Sen. Al Laun, Kiel; Green Bay; Bear Creek; Leo O'Brien, Gerald Lorge, William Dra- heim, Neenah, and LaFave, Oconto.

He said he will be surprised if more than one of the 20 Republican senators leaves the GOP opposition to the withholding idea. Predicts Sales Tax O'Brien added that he is coming to regard a sales tax as the only solution to the! question of where needed new; state revenue can come. j "I feel safe in predictingj that withholding will never get through the senate. The more study I put in on this whole question, the more I think that we will need a sales tax as the final he said. The Democratic admin- istration has been concentrat- ing on the windfall aspect of "pay as you go" income tax collections in a bid to gain pressure from municipalities! for the senate showdown. j LaFave has denounced this, talk as a "gimmjck."

He said the administra- tion proposal was advanced because of the belief that it is needed to prevent mob ac- tion against school desegrega- tion decisions. At present, Rogers added, the federal government has no weapon to prevent mob vi- olence except the use of arm- ed forces.

Eisenhower, smiling gaily, came away from Dulles' hos- pital room holding Macmillan by the arm. They stopped obligingly and posed for photographers. The president wore a brown suit and held a matching fedora. Macmillan was in a blue- gray suit. Several hundred hospital employes cheered as the par- ty arrived at Walter Reed.
