APPROVE WIRE TAPPING UNDER RIGD3 CONTROLS Group Sets March 18, 19 and '20 for Hearing to Consid- er 4 Measures on La- bor Racketeering. JEFFERSON CITY. Jan. 14 Bills to set a speed limit on Mis- souri highways and to allow wire tapping under rigid controls were approved today by a special Sen- ate committee. The Senate Criminal Law Revi- sion Committee, working in Ihe in- terim between legislative sessions, wound up three days of work by: 1. Endorsing a bill to legalize the tapping of telephone and tele- graph wires to get evidence of treason, sabotage, crimes endan- gering national security, espionage and kidnaping for ransom. Kid- naping was included as an out- growth of the Greenlease kidnap- killing last year. 2. Ordering its legal adviser. Prof. Roy F. Proffit of the Uni- versity of Missouri, to draft a bill setting a maximum speed on Mis- souri roads, and possibly a mini- mum speed, together with a zoning system for danger areas. Bills to Be Drafted. 3. Ordering Proffitt to draft gen- eral bills on arson, stealing and sex crimes covering all the 360 odd sections on those subjects now in the statutes. 4. Approved repeal of 20 anti- quated laws on horse theft, brand- ing and so on which are covered under other, more modern laws. 5. Set March 18. 19 and 20 for a session in Jefferson City to con- sider four bills on labor racketeer- ing. Sen. Albert M. Spradling (D) of Cape Girardeau, chairman, said the committee made no hard and fast decision on what the speed limit should be. Yesterday Col. Hugh H. Wag- goner, superintendent of the High- way Patrol, recommended a day- time limit of 65 miles an hour and a night limit of 55.

Lt. J. G. iloirow, who with Comdr. D. J. Giorgio developed the transparent helmet, administered the anesthetic in the first test. Jimmy, son of a chief hobpitalman, called it a "pretty sharp trick" after the operation.

Bus service, which was discon- tinued on highway 71 south to Arkansas all Wednesday night and to Kansas City for a brief period during the night, was back to normal yesterday. However, a heavy fog moved into the Joplin area after midnight last night, which threatened to curtail air service to and from the city.

There is no law prohibiting wire tapping on the books now and evidence obtained that way may be used in state courts. Four Crimes Covered. Under the bill approved to be introduced the first day of the 1955 legislative session only- four crimes affecting state and na- tional security, plus kidnaping for ransom, are covered. Spradling said the kidnaping of little Bobby Greenlease last Sep- tember, and the execution of his killers here last month, was still fresh in the minds of the commit- tee members. They felt such a crime was so horrible, tap- ping in kidnaping investigations should be legalized to give the pub- lic all the protection possible. Of the crimes covered, Spradling said the committee felt "state and national security were above the individual rights of freedom of speech." But the right to tap telephone and telegraph lines was not ex- tended to crimes like murder, bank robbery and so on because the- committee decided that would be too great an incursion on freedom of speech and might lead to fears of a "police slate." Only Few Could Issue Order. Only a judge of the state Su- preme Court or of the St. Louis, Kansas City or Springfield appel- late courts could issue an order permitting the lapping of a spe- cific telephone or telegraph line. And the only law enforcement of- ficials eligible to get such an or- der would be a county prosefuling attorney, the St. Louis circuit at- torney, a county sherifi or the chief of police in cities over population. If anyone else tapped a wire without a court oidcr, he could be' imprisoned from one to five years and fined or both.

UP TO WOULD BE FREE OF LEVY Credit Would Be Increased Second and Third Years Reported Opposed to Plan. FAVOR RAISE FOR CONGRESSMEN "Majority of Committee on Salaries Would Tay Lawmakers a Year. WASHINGTON, Jan. 14 House Ways and Means Commit- tee, bowing to a long-time plea from business circles, approved to- day a three-year program of sharp reductions in taxes on income from dividends. Staff experts said the proposec changes would mean a saving of 240 million dollars for about four million taxpaying stockholders the first year. The ultimate loss in revenue was estimated at from 500 million to one billion dollars annually, when the cuts reach full effect. A majority of committee Demo- crats reportedly resisted the move, but were voted down in a closed- door committee session. This marked the first substantial controversy in a committee project aimed at rewriting almost all the nation's tax Jaws with a view to simplifying and clarifying them and removing alleged inequities. Acts on Proposals. The committee is acling page-by- page on recommendations drafted by Treasury and Congressional staff experts, after months of la- bor. WASHINGTON, Jan. 14 ffi A majority of the Com- mission on Judicial and Congres- sional Salaries was reported today to favor a salary for sena- tors and pay boost. The commission, set up by the 1953 Congress to make recommen- dations on the pay of federal judges and members of Congress, is to submit its report to President Eisennower at the White House to- morrow. Under (lie law. Congress must act on the report by March 15. In an election year like this one, the subject is ticklish. It was understood that a few of the members representing agricul- ture on ihe commission thought that a salary hike for the lawmakers was sufficient. All ol the members support a substantia. increase.
