Hoff announces new Park for Woodford Montpelier a plans to develop a new state Park in Wood Ford were announced today by gov. Hoff. The governor said he had approved proposals for immediate development of the Woodford Park and another state Park on Burton Island in Lake Champlain. Construction in both areas will begin this fall Hoff said with use of at least portions of the two facilities scheduled for next summer. The Woodford project has been allocated $40,000 from a Bond Issue approved by the 1963 general Assembly for Park development while $25,000 has been allocated from the same source for the Burton Island project. Hoff said a 240-acr� tract with a 25-acre Lake has been purchased in Woodford As the site for construction of camping and other Park facilities. Similar development is planned for Burton is after the test ban what a Kyj him push by James Marloh associated press news analyst Washington apr the United states now that the Senate has approved the limited nuclear test ban treaty with the soviet Union is like a Man who just made a Down payment on a new business although he Hasni to figured out what kind. The treaty is an improvement in the relationship Between the of d in a i esidio ii Iii Moscow apr the presi Lium of the supreme soviet Oday ratified the limited no Lear test ban treaty a 24 hours almost to the minute aft to the . Senate acted Rass said the vote in the 33-nember body was unanimous which everyone expected. Two countries and could Lead to better things president Kennedy spoke of it As a first step but nobody is sure or could be what comes next if anything. The soviet unions foreign minister Andrei a. Gromyko at the United nations last week proposed among other things another disarmament conference. But disarmament conferences Are not new with either Side. Since the russians wont agree to an inspection system to prevent cheating on disarmament and the United states wont agree to disarmament without inspection it was no wonder Gromyko s idea caused no gasps. When Kennedy followed Gromyko at the United nations with the suggestion that the United states and the soviet Union get together to Send a joint expedition to the Moon this Wasny to new either. It explains Why the russians did no to get excited. It Wasny to the fir St time Kennedy had mentioned it to them. A White House spokesman said the president had proposed the joint Moon trip to Premier Khrushchev at Vienna in 1961. Khrushchev did no to buy it. And oddly enough Only two months ago Kennedy told a news conference it was impractical. Gromyko while he was at it offered another idea which was also not new with the russians a no aggression agreement with nato allies and the Warsaw pact allies in Eastern Europe. The West had never grabbed at that one. That s no wonder either. It could have the effect if the allies bought it of Allied agreement to the permanent division of Germany and Europe a line Down the Middle with East Germany in the communist Camp West Germany on the Western Side. The Western allies Are committed to agreeing to no such thing the russians had already created their Symbol of this division with the Wall they built to split West and East Berlin. But it has remained and probably was so intended More than just a Symbol of a divided City. Since the allies Are unwilling to risk War by tearing the Wall Down it is a Symbol to their own bafflement in dealing with the soviets. There has been talk also not new about the two sides agreeing to setting up observation posts in each others territory to be Alert against military buildups or Surprise attacks. This idea alone if the two sides Ever seriously considered it would probably require almost fantastically dragged out negotiations. Even if they did agree the final arrangements probably mean much. In a nuclear age its hard to think of either Side starting a War which would almost certainly become a nuclear War the Way War started in 1914, with foot soldiers or in 1939, with tanks and Ordinary bombers. Along any of the avenues mentioned above Down which the two sides might be Able to walk hand in hand there could be some give and take but at this time there is no reason to think so. A More Likely Road to better relations May be in the Field of Trade. Last week the russians were reported anxious to buy american wheat although they had just bought Over $600 million Worth of wheat from Canada.

Prouty r vt., says his vote in support of the nuclear test ban treaty was a the most momentous and difficult decision i have had to make since i first came to the Senate 13 years Prouty told the Senate yesterday after the treaty was approved that in voting he thought of the soviet unions a record of broken promises its alternating promises of peace and threats of but the Vermont Republican added he also thought of a a whole generation of americans that have never known peace a Complete and total peace and he thought of the nations Security. A yet to reject the treaty and to look Back one Day and find that this was the Chance for the begging a a Chance that would never appear again a that would be the greatest tragedy of All a he said. Washington apr democrats Are confident they can defeat a Republican Effort to Nail a government spending lid onto president Kennedy a $11-billion tax reduction measure when the Bill comes up for a House vote today a we Are optimistic a said rep. Carl Albert of Oklahoma the democratic Leader. If both the House and Senate approve the measure the proposed cuts would begin to be Felt in paychecks next january. Ultimately the reduction would Range Between $100 and $200 a year for most taxpaying families a More in the upper brackets. Two thirds would go into effect next Jan. I the rest a year later. But passage of the Bill intact in the House would still leave a Long hard Road ahead. The Senate finance committee May not begin hearings on the tax legislation before mid october and an expected protracted civil rights fight could delay the tax Bill almost indefinitely. Democratic leaders were heartened by the apparent willingness of Many members of the party a Southern Wing to go along in opposition to the spending limit. Even some democrats who oppose the tax Cut Bill itself were reported ready to vote against the Republican motion. The administration can better afford to lose democratic votes on passage of the Bill. Many republicans Are expected to vote for it whether or not the limitation is attached. But the gop ranks Are practically solid in support of the spending curb amendment. Rep. Wilbur d. Mills d-ark., chairman of the ways and Means committee which wrote the tax legislation was reported to have advised democratic House leaders to let him handle the Job of persuading southerners. A highly influential Southern Democrat Mills told associates he has had pledges of support from a number of members who usually vote against the administration on economic matters.

Then he said those who favor massive government spending would have their Best Opportunity. The Republican proposal to cancel the tax Cut unless the president announces cutbacks in expenditure plans Mills said is no a unbreakable magic Way to control spending. The Republican counterattack included a warning from the party Leader in the House rep Charles a. Halleck of Indiana that the Bill would be in a great jeopardy if the House rejected the limitation. This limit would put a ceiling of not More than $97 billion on the spending budget for the year that started last july i and $98 billion for the next year. Rep. Howard h.
