The House Ways and Means Committee announced hearings next Monday on the presidential plan outlined in a special message Thursday to sus- pend for 16 months the 7-per cent tax credit for business spending on equipment and the tax-advantageous fast deprecia- tion rules on business real es- tate. The legislation was quickly introduced Thursday by Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark., com- mittee chairman, who said the first witnesses will include Sec- retary of the Treasury Henry H. Fowler, Secretary of Commerce John T. Connor and Budget Director Charles L. Schultze. In the Senate, Majority Lead- er Mike Mansfield announced that Democratic leaders in Con- gress had been consulted in ad- vance of the message and had assured the President of their cooperation. And Sen. Russell B. Long, D- La., head of the Finance Com- mittee, said that group will con- sider Johnson's proposals at an early date. The House must act first on the legislation. In his surprise message, Johnson said the stimulus to the equipment improvement needed a few year? ago now is over- straining supplying factors and clogging capital markets with Inside The Progress Goal Set Of Classified Ads 12, 13 Hints From Heloise IS Comics 15 News From Around World 6 Sports U Obituaries................2 Hospital News Editorial, Social News 3, Church News Awaits Grand Jury Action Campaign Launched By Shafer Levels Stinging Attack on Foe In Clearfield United Fund Names Jackson Chairman Carl A.

S. Army Special Forces' 101st Brigade, had been in Viet Nam since last De- cember and was due for transfer back to the States next month. He was slightly-injured two months ago when he stepped excessive demands for credit. The business tax credit ap- plies not only to equipment and machinery purchased by indus- try but to such farm production equipment as tractors. It does not, however, apply to livestock investments. Johnson announced his new anti-inflation proposals at a news conference staged Thurs- day just as the special message arrived on Capitol Hill. The conference dealt, mainly uith economics, but the Presi- dent made these other points: The question of troop with- drawal from Europe and other North Atlantic Treaty Organiza- tion problems are matters "more wisely handled" in NATO discussions first. Congressional action on U.S. troops abroad is not necessary at the moment. The administration is seeking each day by "every means available to us" to sound out the chances for improved relations with Red China and an end to the war in Viet Nam. No one ha.s communicated anything to the United States on French President Charles de Gaulle's suggestion that Ameri- ca withdraw its forces from Viet Nam. In his message to Congress, Johnson pledged to "cut all fed- eral expenditures to the fullest extent consistent with the well- being of our people." Moreover, he told Congress, bills it has already passed have added about billion to the spend- ing authority he requested and pending bills could add almost billion. He said: "When the Congress Shrine Club and a member of the Clearfield County Develop- ment Council.
