HOME EDITION VOL LXIII Associated Press and United Press Full Lease Wirei Seven Cents a Copy MASON CITY tOWA TUESDAY APRIL 16 1957 This Paper Consists ot Two SectionsSection One No BUT UNDER PROTEST U S Ready to Permit Vessels to Use Canal WASHINGTON Ml The United States is now about ready to aMow American ships to pass through the Suez Canal under Egyp tion terms provided they do so under protest against Egypts operating arrangements Top officials who disclosed this Tuesday predicted such a go ahead would be given American shippers within a week The government move would void earlier State Department Loveless in Bus Bill Veto Wouldve Given Tax Exemption DES M01NES Gov Her schel Loveless announced Tuesday his veto of a second tax exemp tion measure to give finan cial relief to city bus companies He previously vetoed a bill to give sales tax exemption to farm ers on gasoline for which they ob tained gas tax refunds In a statement sent to the that American ships keep away from the canal until physical and negotiating hazards involved in reopening the water way had been overcome Approaching Canal Some American commercial ships are reported already ap proaching the canal anticipating hat the government will lift the an within a few days even though Egypts President Nasser has re fused to meet Western terms for operating the waterway The new American government attitude officials said would be made known about the time the Eisenhower administration offici ally informs the United Nations its confidential talks with Egypt House where the bus bill origi nated he said In view of the rather large number of businesses including farms operating with little or no profit it does not seem approri ate to extend substantial tax re to bus companies He added Not Salvage Device In general the tax systems oi state and local should not be employed as a de vice for salvaging specific bus inesses or industries from eco nomic difficulties The major benefits of urban transit systems are enjoyed by the residents of the area served If these benefits are worth the costs of providing the services such costs should be borne by the groups benefitted rather than be ing partially shifted to taxpayers throughout the state by means of tax The bill proposed to free city bus companies for the next two years from paying present regis tration fees compensation taxes have failed to yield a satisfactory settlement Such a report is expected to be made to the Security Coun cil some time this week It will make clear the United States hope that further talks with Egypt will be held on the nine month dispute which touched off fighting last October Reporl Responsible authorities said the American report to the Security Council would contend that Egypt has failed to live up to the six principles it pledged to follow last September in negotiating differ ences with Western shipping na tions Some American officials said gasoline taxes bluntly that the terms Egypt now appears to be sticking to are much stiffer than seemed likely to emerge from negotiations un der way prior to the British FrenchIsraeli invasion of Egypt taxes and franchise Only Fee The only fee a local bus com pany would have had to pay would have been a year for each bus Sixteen Iowa cities have bus lines Many of these transit com panies are hard pressed financial ly The governor exhibited at his news conference a handful of tel egrams asking him to sign the bill The governor suggested that two laws passed by the 1955 Leg islature would provide a sound er approach to the problems of lo cal transit systems than that con tained bus relief bill One of those 1955 laws would permit municipal ownership of city bus lines through a vote of thc people The other would per mit a Vs mill
