Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - February 2, 1963, Mason City, Iowa Legislative roundup story page HOME EDITION Canada may call election On getting away from the capital JFK zooms past Ike By JANE LONGBAR WASHINGTON rnpn ttanV WAMUNGION UPI Back stairs at the Vrhite House In a speech while traveling whether Parliament is sitting last summer President Kennedy The House of Commons is ad OTTAWA round of se ret conferences has heightened peculation that Prime Minis er John Diefenbaker will dis olve Parliament and call for ew elections in a crisis grow ng out of US demands tha anada take a clear stand on uclear weapons Diefenbaker paid a 40minut all Friday on GovernorGen ral George Vanier a required relude to any decision to dis olve Parliament The prime minister then met with Foreign secretary Howard Green anc Charles Titchie Canadian am assador to Washington said it was good to get away from Washington from time to time Statistically he is well on his way to topping the away from record set by for mer President Dwight D Eisen hower Official White House figures recently said Kennedy had spent 215 days out of the capital dur ing his first two years in office as contrasted with Eisenhowers 195 during the same period In dications are the trend will con tinue But those figures dont tell the whole story According to those familiar with the computation they were based on what were considered working days spent away from the White House Sundays at Middleburg Va or quickie flights to nearby cities for evening speeches were not included ourned until Monday US Secretary of State Dean lusk Friday defended as neces ary the statement that Canada was dragging its feet on accept ng nuclear warheads for US upplied Bomarc missiles and interceptor jets at home nd

Diefenbaker declined to com If they had been or if a strict er form of accounting had been used Kennedys absences from Washington dating from his in auguration on Jan 20 1961 to the end of his second calendar year in office on Dec 31 1962 would have amounted to be tween 30 and 40 per cent of his time With trips already contemplat ed this year to Italy Germany Costa Rica and Brazil Kennedj is likely to keep up this level This is so only because Kennedj is a relatively young and vigor ous President and the first to have jet aircraft and helicopter available to him from the start Tallying time sway is not b any means being critical of thi President It is well known tha when a chief executive travel Eisenhower set new rec ords he carries the burden the mechanics and a goodlj number of the personnel of the White House with him On that basis it is hard t define a working day for th President since he can be work ing just as hard while national security documents a his seaside home as in his office And through elaborate com munications he can be just a close to events when travelin as when in Washington Thus it is difficult to com up with any adequate standar for totaling presidential travel How for example should the to tal run for a departure from Washington at 4 pm Frida and a return at am th following Monday a typicz schedule for a weekend at Cap Cod Obviously Saturday and Sun day are away days through the White House wouldnt necej sarily count Sunday But is Fr day a half day or a nonday an shouldnt Monday be uncounte since it provides almost fuL time in the A national magazine last Oc tober researched Kennedy travel in comparison to Eisen bowers by counting a prenoo departure as a full day away post noon departure as half da away a prenoon return as n time away On that basis it compute that Kennedy was gone from Washington 240 days in his firs 21 months as President Whil Eisenhower had been away 22 days in a comparable perioi This was a total of 39 per cen of Kennedys presidential time and somewhat exceeded the off cial White House figures The Presidents opinion was that by traveling elsewhere he could get a better and fresher perspective of what most of our citizens are thinking and doing 6 more weeks of winter Shadow seen by groundhog Therell be six more weeks of winter beyond a shadow of a doubt Saturday was Groundhog Day The furry

and eliminating a provision which lets businesses deduct the 52 per cent federal tax when computing the state tax He estimated this would raise the take from million to million a year Leading GOP legislators said this and other Hughesproposed measures would discourage indus trial growth In its report the said little additional rev enue could be obtained by increas ing the tax on corporations and any increase might tend to dis couragenew jndustry in Iowa For these reasons the committee con cluded that no change should be made inthat tax rate at the pres ent time The committee suggested that the legislature consider a flat tax on adjusted gross income which it defined as the net income aft er deducting operating and busi ness expenses but without person al exemptions Hughes said such
