President Johnson signed it into law Wednesday night and told the nation in a radio and television address it is “the single most important step we have taken to strengthen our economy since World War II.” Noting that John F. Kennedy had “inspired and proposed” the Si 1.5-billion cut—the biggest in history—Johnson hurried off the home of the president’s widow to present her and her two children, John Jr. and Caroline, with three of the pens he had used to sign it. The tax bill, which the Senate completed final congressional action on Wednesday by a 74 to 19 vote, will reduce taxes for 80 million individuals by almost one-fifth, on the average, by about 9 per cent for 550,000 businesses. The cuts are retroactive to Jan. I. Johnson in his 15-minute address said the measure “will strengthen our economy and bring a better way of life to our citizens.” The theory is, as Johnson explained: “As you spend this money at the grocers or department store, the grocer and department store owner in turn will spend it for their own needs—and in this fashion, the money will circulate through the economy raising the demand for goods several times the amount of the tax cut.” All told about $800 million more a month will be fired into See TAX CUT, Page 7 Klyne Retiring As Electric Chief Arthur B.

AUTOMATIC HEARING NOT FAR OFF What's Rush For Sheppard Parole? By Richard Zimmerman Reporter Columbus Bureau (First of 2 articles) COLUMBUS - Why are Dr. Samuel R. Gerber and the Cleveland Press asking that Dr. Sam Sheppard be paroled at once when it is only a matter of months until the convicted wife-slayer is due for an automatic parole hearing? What brought forth this sudden concern on the part of the Cuyahoga County coronor who has made a small fortune showing post-mortem pictures of the murder victim and the newspaper which takes much credit for putting Sheppard behind bars? For the present only Gerber and Louis Seltzer, Press editor, really know. But almost to a man high prison officials and state’s at-tornys agree on one theory: that Sheppard’s chances of getting a new trial have never been better. Even top officials in the office cl Attorney General William B.

But there is time enough be* tween now and the time Sheppard is automatically up for a parole hearing next fall for a federal judge to order a new trial. While officials conclude that Sheppard’s improved chances prompted Gerber’s appeal, no one has any concrete reasons to offer as to why Gerber and the Press would be concerned other than the obvious fact that both parties would look rather bad if Sheppard won his re-trial and even worse if he were acquitted Why, after IO years of unsuccessful appeals all the way to the United States Supreme Court are Sheppard’s chances for a reversal so much better? Assistant attorneys general point to 2 reasons: that three very recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings have severely defined a person’s right to legal counsel at all times and secondly, that the latest action is the first filing DAY BRIGHTENER Many a woman worships the ground her husband walks on— untii he tracks it in the house. of a civil, and not of a crim-minal, nature made in a federal court. Taking the last reason first, attorneys for the state recall that the U.S. Supreme Court is the only federal court ever to hear the case, as criminal decisions from a state supreme court may be appealed directly there. In turning down this appeal, the U.S. high court went to pains to point out that it refused to even hear the case only because 4 justices felt the certain legal requirements for review had not been met and that this “no way implies that his court approves Hie decision of the Ohio Supreme Court.” Tomorrow: Sheppard’s new defense and the dangers of a new trial. UCF Appoints Office Aide, New Philo Vice President by Arthur Hanenkrat, who has been his assistant. “We have some plans come June,” Klyne said this morning, referring to he and his wife, the former Rachel Ritchey, whom he married in 1918. “First on our agenda is a vacation. We haven’t had much chance for one in recent years.” A registered professional engineer who was born in New Buffalo, south of Youngstown, “A.B.” has been in the utility field a half century, becoming interested in electricity while in high school. He came to Dover as chief electrician from Minerva where he was associated with the municipal light and water system. He added to his training by taking extension courses from the University of California and Ohio State University. Prior to his Minerva position he was in the electrical department of Youngstown Sheet and Tube Co. and then was in the city power department at Canfield. When “A.B.” arrived in Dover almost 41 years ago, electricity was just coming into general use. At that time most homes has just one light in each room and electrical appliances were almost non-existent. The city had only one traffic light, a pillar-type signal at Wooster and 3rd St. which was called a “dead man” because motorists were constantly running into it. During his long tenure, “A.B.” has supervised installation of 2 j street lighting systems, the first j phafce of the second one having been completed in downtown Do- I ver late in 1963.

By JOHN CHADWICK WASHINGTON (AP) - After two drama-packed hearings, the Senate’s Bobby Baker investigators shifted their sights today to vending machine operations and to gambling concessions in the Caribbean. Witnesses called by the Senate Rules Committee were Edward Torres, identified as vice president of the Fremont Hotel in Las Vegas, Nev., and John Gates, a vice president of Pan 'American Airways and president of Intercontinental Hotels. Torres has figured ii testimony about the financing of the Serv-U Corp., a vending machine company in which Baker is a major but unlisted stockholder. Questions also have been raised about whether he had gambling interests. The name of Gates has not been brought up in the public hearings, but there has been a reference to the Intercontinental Hotels and gambling concessions in the Caribbean. The committee is investigating how Baker built up a fortune he has put at over $2 million while he was serving as secretary to the Senate’s Democratic majority.
