Ardmore Daily Ardmoreite (Newspaper) - February 16, 1953, Ardmore, Oklahoma My z. W. B.

The Texas communities seeking tourist Trade for their big Lake had proposed that Texas adopt the idea of a series of Bond issues to i Tiance the construction of lodges and recreation centers along the a out hem Shore of the big Lake the Bonds to be self liquidating from receipts derived from the rentals and fees at the lodges. According to what i was told Friday the conf Smittee in the Texas legislature voted Down the idea 10 to 6. The Texas lawmakers Are so Jujj to have viewed the proposal with jaundiced eyes on the grounds and this floors me that any such activity would be so the towns along the shores of the big Lake Are pulling every string working every Stop and doing am in their Power to change Hie minds of the lawmakers unless they succeed in their efforts their dreams of a series of play places comparable with Lake Murray Park Lodge along their shores will vanish. Their sole Hope then would be for private capital to come and build the Lodge. Texas lawmakers have funny ideas of socialism if the report i have is sound. There May be faults with the pm m Oklahoma followed in pro Viking Lake Murray with its Lodge but the idea that such a plan is socialistic puzzles me. A a Over Here where we have tie plan in operation and where the Lodge is now in some sort of hot water because of disgruntled Law makers the exact opposite As Sec it of the distaste the Texas lawmakers showed for the plan has Arisen. Down Texas Way. They Don like the Wea because they seem to think that such a plan smacks of socialism which by any definition i know Means that it puts govern Anent into business and tend to the idea of the people being supported and protected by the government. Up Here in Oklahoma where we have uned the plane to build a big Lodge and develop a great play ground the Folk who Are pushing the probe into tie operation of the Lake and the Lodge seem to feel that the Spirtt of aristocracy pre Dounias .

A a secondly i do not think that i be Murray Park has become what its critics charge. I do not think the rates charged for its accommodations Are exorbitant in View of their Comfort luxury and compared with the rates charged alike by operators of similar places elsewhere. I do not see How we can expect he project to pay out and ultimately become the states property unless enough Revenue is derived from its operation to finance its operation its proper maintenance and leave enough to absorb yearly payments on the mortgage the bondholders have. I do not regard Lake Murray Lodge As the whole of Lake Murray Park. And i seem to have Southern Oklahoma a greatest newspaper 60tli year no. 96 Stabli thud octo bbb a ism Ardmore Oklahoma.

Taft a Ohio said today president Eisenhower wants to make a Cabinet rank government department out of the Federal Security administration and has set machinery in motion to create such a department. Taft the Senate Republican floor Leader gave this word to reporters after a 40-minute meeting of congressional leaders with toe president. He said much of the session was spent in discussion on the question of repudiating certain a secret agreements Quot made by presidents Roosevelt and Truman. Some Progress was made toward drafting a repudiation Resolution such As Eisenhower has called for Taft added. In his state of the Union address Eisenhower said he would shortly ask Congress to repudiate any secret agreements of the past which involved the enslavement of free Peoples anywhere. Taft said the proposed Resolution will be introduced in Congress a within a reasonable Quot i would think it would go through a Taft said. Taft and House speaker Martin a mass met with newsmen in the office of White House press Secretary James c. Hagerty immediately after they and other gop leaders had held their regular monday morning strategy conference with the president. This was a departure from past sessions when the congressional leaders have been reluctant to talk. Taft said a Resolution setting up a new department to take Over the work of the Federal Security administration is being prepared. Fra now is headed by mrs. Oveta Culp Hobby who sits in on Cabinet meetings. Mrs. Hobby voiced the Hope before she took office her Post would be raised to one of full Cabinet rank. Fra includes the social Security system and other Federal health education and related services. Taft did no to go into the reasons for turning Fra into a regular department. He said however All those at today a meeting appeared to be in favor of the step although he said the question was raised whether it would be better to do it now or to wait until fall. Taft said it would be necessary to consult with education medical and other interests who might be affected by the change before drawing up final plans. The thought is that Eisenhower would present the matter to Congress As a government reorganization plan. Under a general government reorganization Law the president has Power to draw plans for shifting government agencies about. Any such plan must be submitted to Congress. Once submitted it becomes effective after 60 Days unless the Senate or House adopts meantime a Resolution of disapproval. On the matter of repudiating secret agreements Taft said the president was referring primarily to the Yalta agreement Between president Roosevelt and the russians. The Ohio lawmaker said he does not know of any agreements made with the russians by the democratic administrations which Are still secret. He said Eisenhower in speaking of a secret understandings in his state of the Union message was referring to agreements which were kept secret at the time they were made and for some time thereafter. Taft said further consultations with the democrats As Well As republicans in Congress would have to take place before the Eisenhower asked Resolution was finally introduced. The Ohio legislator made it Plain Congress will not be asked continued of Page a.

Fleet Wim in title when the former eighth army co Unander goes before congressional committees. There was some speculation the same question was up for discussion at a top level White House meeting today. If it was presumably several new factors would be taken into account 1. The stockpile of a bombs for tactical use on a Battlefield is growing. 2. The army has a new big Caliper gun it claims can shoot atomic explosive shells. 3. Intensified pressure at Home for ending the War. So far the answers of most military leaders have been against using nuclear weapons. The is they give Are both military and political. Gen. Omar Bradley chairman of the strategy making joint chiefs of staff repeated in an interview recently that he sees nothing to be gained now by using the atomic bomb tactically. Bradley did no to go into details nor indicate whether he included atomic artillery along with atomic bombs dropped from planes. The views of Bradley and others who recommended against employing such weapons in Korea generally seem predicated on these ideas there Are in the present Battle situation no really Good targets neither tactical on the Battlefield nor strategic the sources of enemy War goods production in North Korea. Atomic explosives can kill everyone above ground within the great radius of the blast pulverize equipment and Burn what is left. But w n exploded at 2,000 or 3,000 feet where the Cone of the blast can encompass the greatest effective area Uliey cannot do major damage to below ground positions.

Cut in taxes seems Likely get approval House committee is reported fax Orabik to income tax chop of 10 per cent by Charles r. Barrett Washington a the House ways and Means committee was evidently ready at its meeting today to give lopsided approval to a Bill by chairman Reed in. A for a 10 per cent Cut in income taxes effective june 30. The Only obstacle to committee clearance appeared to be an expected move by democrats to delay a decision until the Eisenhower administration takes a stand on the proposal. Democrats said if this move fails and they Arentt most of their members will join republicans in pushing a drive to give some 50 million taxpayers a reduction after three rounds of increases. Congressional staff special tag estimate the Reed Bill would trim else to 1 billion dollars from Federal Revenue for the fiscal year starting july 1. For that reason it presents important and Touchy problems for Eisenhower who has pledged strongly to raise enough reverie to balance fed a spending has put spending cuts ahe�4 w tax cuts in his fiscal policy. As a possible solution to Utt which comes first dilemma. Senate Republican Leader Taft of Oblo suggested a delayed action tax tit up to 13 per cent effective in to fiscal year starting july 1, 19$4. In a radio interview Talt backed up Eisenhower a stand for spending cuts before tax cuts. He said he hoped for Early tax reductions but Felt a Bill to make a 12 or 13 per cent Cut might be introduced now to take effect one year from next july 1. House leaders including speaker Joseph Martin a mass have said they will try to hold off floor action on the Reed Bill for two months or More. But eventually barring new developments they expect to Send the measure to the Senate where its future is More i certain. Present Law already provides for a 10 per cent reduction in individual income Taxe rates to take effect dec. 31. The Reed Bill merely would Advance this Cut by six months and greatly increase the resultant Revenue loss next fiscal years. Because it would go into effect july 1, most taxpayer would get Only a 5 per cent reduction in their tax year for Calendar 1953�?10 per cent after that. In Advance of today a closed session democrats opened fire on what they called a ducking of duty by the Eisenhower administration. They hit at the absence of any written report from the Treasury on estimated effects of the Reed Bill. They aug criticized the Lack of any hearings with Treasury spokesmen.
