Von MI-; 02 NUMBER 206 LCI CITY FINAL 15 CENTS BACKERS CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, SATURDAY, AUGUST 3, 1974 ASSOC! ATK!) UR USS, URI, NUW YORK TIMES GLUM House Unit Clears Tax Reform Bill WASHINGTON (AP) - A tax reform package designed to sprinkle benefits among taxpayers and to assure least minimal tax payments from the wealthy! has passed a key house panel. And, before giving tentative approval to the wide-ranging measure Friday, the house ways and means committee combined the bill with the so-called energy tax reform measure after a warning that a congress! preoccupied with impeachment would more readily pass one tax bill than deal with two separate ones. The biggest proposed benefit to the average taxpayer is a provision to boost the maximum standard deduction to $2,500 from $2,000, and to hike the minimum standard deduction to $1,400 from $1,300 on single returns and to $1,500 on joint returns. New Minimum Conferring On Cyprus Truce Line NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) — Turkish and Greek military officers met again Saturday to draw up cease-fire lines and U. N.-enforced buffer zones between the embattled armies in Cyprus. British and U. N. officials sat in on the talks that began with a four-hour session Friday at a U.! N. camp near Nicosia airport in which no agreements were reached. U. N. officials said Friday ( that the cease-fire line was mostly defined with the exception of a section in the contested western Kyrenia mountains. The four parties are trying to implement a U. N. Security Council call for the 3,400 U. N. peacekeeping troops to move between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish forces. Fierce Attack «rv- r The proposed new minimum tax rate would impose a 14 percent levy on the first $50,000, 17 percent between $50,000 and $100,000, and 20 percent thereafter. The experts estimate this would affect some 187,000 returns. To sweeten the burden for upper-income citizens, the panel proposed a slight decrease in the maximum capital gains tax, dropping it to 35 percent from the present 36.5 percent. The combination of hikes and cuts in tax levies was expected to produce a net revenue gain of $500 million annually, based on changes that would increase some taxes by $7 billion and decrease others by $6.5 million. One of the major ingredients in the tax-hike side was a last-minute amendment that accelerates the previously-approved plan to phase out the controversial petroleum depletion allowance. The depletion tax break at present saves oilmen between $2 billion and $3 billion a year in federal taxes. Mills Stand Chairman Mills (D-Ark.) successfully urged on his colleagues the wisdom of starting the three-year phase-out this year, as opposed to the original starting date of Jan. I, 1975. The first step in the gradual elimination of the 22 percent depletion allowance would drop it to 15 percent, retroactive to last Jan.j I. The timing of this year's legislative calendar is heavily influenced by the impeachment question. Mills indicated. Thus. he argued, the senate is faced with the prospect of President Nixon's trial and would only have time to consider one major tax bill this year At Mills’ urging, the committee wrapped both bills into a single package, which is expected to reach the house for action after the presidential impeachment proceedings there. Rail Executive Dies In Fall from Train PHILADELPHIA (AP) George R Wallace, a vicepresident of the Penn Central Railroad, was killed Friday when he fell from the rear of an Amtrak passenger train. A railroad spokesman said the accident occurred at a station about IO miles north of here.! Tile train was approaching Philadelphia from New York Police said Wallace, 54. fell off the boarding platform of the last car and was dragged 200 feet. They said his body was spotted by an engineer from another train. Troops Pull Back NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) Ugandan troops were reported rolling back Saturday from the; Tanzanian frontier following Ugandan President Idi Amin’s rferkinn to call off his invasion Reports said Friday that battles were raging in the northwest part of the island and that the Turks moved into four Greek Cypriot villages in the , western Kyrenia range. Peter Arnett, Associated Press special correspondent, reported from the battle zone that Turkish tanks and infantry launched a fierce attack on a Greek outpost on Mt. Kyparis-sovouno. which overlooks the four villages. The Greeks have two howitzers on the mountain within range of Turkish emplacements at Kyrenia. The Turkish representative af the talks in Nicosia, Col. Nezihi dakar, claimed the fighting had ceased. He said the Turks “are doing their best not to violate the cease-fire agreement” reached in Geneva Tuesday by the foreign ministers of Greece. Turkey and Britain — the three co-guarantors of the independence of the former British colony.

Some of the women told of repeatedly being raped by Turkish soldiers while in captivity. Sources in Ankara said Turkey plans to bring in fresh troops to replace the force that invaded Cyprus July 20.

IO 8 12-15 ALBANY. N. Y. (AP) - Almost three-quarters of a century ago. Joseph Ixunbardo left his father’s small Italian farm and boarded a ship for America. He and his four brothers were never together again until a moving reunion at a busy airport. Joseph, 87, and three other brothers, now also in the U. S., greeted Domenico, 81, who flew here for a six-week stay from his ranch in Perth. Australia. Asked if he recognized Domenico after 73 years, Joseph smiled and said, “No, not hardly.” Carl, 85. was more direct: “I expected him to tx* more I at.” All five brothers, including Carmelo. 79, and Paul, 74, both of Dennison. Ohio, spent the remainder of the day in conversation. "We talked about the old country and tlx* old house ” said Paul. “Domenico told us there s nothing left over there. Floods destroyed most of our property ... I think it was about three years ago.” A full-scale reunion dinner tonight will include some of the brothers’ 26 children and many more-distant relatives. Several of the men said they could remember vividly that day in March, 1901, when Joseph left Siderno, Italy, for the promise of a new life. “I came for a better place to live,” said Joseph, still and numerous bruises.    rounded by manzanita bushes .    ________ ..

Rep. Robert McCrory (IMH.) said Rhodes, in one of his meetings with Republicans, “said he’s not going to do any arm-twisting” on impeachment. McCrory and another judiciary committee Republican, Rep. Harold Froehlkh (Ww.), refused to sign Latta’s petition. Froehiich noted that Findley's resolution accuser Nixon of “moral insensitivity, negligence ,and maladministration.” “If those things don’t justify impeachment, what does?” he 'asked spry enough to walk about eight miles daily with Carl. Both live in Albany. Added Paul. “We didn t get rich, but we made a good living.” One by one, the other brothers followed Joseph's lead in leaving the farm, which today is tended by their two sisters and their families. Joseph and Carl were settled in Albany in 1908, working as laborers on Hudson river docks, when their father, Vincent, came to America to take them home But he was killed in a railroad accident and the brothers stayed Carmelo came in 1913 and took a job with the Pennsylvania Railroad, where he worked 45 years before retir ing in Ohio. He later was joined by Paul. Domenico returned to the family farm after serving with the Italian army in World war I. When his six sons and three daughters eventually left for Australia, he joined them in 1960 in running a 1,000-acre sheep and cattle ranch. The reason for the family’s long lifespan is a secret, said Joseph, but he noted the long walks he and Carl take daily. “We used to walk IO miles, this year it’s eight and now next year it'll maybe be six miles,” Joseph said. “I can’t complain. We’re not young any more. We were young once, but that was 40, 50 years ago ” Pentagon Hiring Retired Doctors WASHINGTON (Alo - Thc Pentagon, faced with a critical shortage of military doctors, plans to hire retired armed ‘forces physicians and pay them I civilian salaries in addition to their full service pensions. Officials, announcing the un precedent step Friday, said the program was needed to • clase a gap of some 1,800 physi-; cians that resulted from tlx* end of the doctor draft last year. They said they had received Civil Service Commission approval in this case to waive a (regulation under which retired regular military officers must forfeit nearly half their retirement pay if they obtain civilian jobs with the federal government. f Tocfiif/’x Chuckle The best way to enjoy a beautiful, productive garden Is to live next door to one and cultivate your neighbor.
