Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - January 14, 1963, Mason City, Iowa 73 points Page 3 HOME EDITION A surge of Arctic air flowed over Iowa Monday ending any hope of immedi ate relief from the bitter cold weather Northwesterly winds brought the coldest air into the state after southwesterly winds pushed temperatures above zero Sunday Overnight low temperatures ranged from 8 above at Bur nosedives No quick rebound seen lington to 18 below at Mason City and 20 below at Wau kou Several hours after the Weather B e a us official nighttime low readings were posted at 6 am temperatures began falling to near or be low zero Des Moines went from 1 below to 4 below Council Bluffs from 3 above to 2 below and Sioux City from 6 below to 9 below zero Other overnight lows in cluded Spencer 13 below Wa terloo 10 below and Dubuque 5 below y Temperatures are expected to drop well below zero again ty Tuesday morning Although the mercury did reach 3 above Sunday it probably seemed much colder to residents of about 300 homes in northeast Des Moines They were without electricity for hours after a car sheared off a utility pole The Weather Bureau in Chi cago said that only a few parts of the nation were not hit by freezing or lower tem peratures Included were areas of the Carolinas south ward through southeastern Georgia and most of Florida Also above freezing but not much higher than 32 degrees were areas near the Pacific Coast from Oregon southward through western California A multimillion dollar layer of clouds covered the lush semit r o p i c a 1 Texas Rio Graude Valley preventing a freeze and probably saving the areas vast citrus groves But it seemed certain mid20 temperatures Sunday virtually destroyed the valu able winter vegetable crop in the area Bananas and pa payas also were frozen to the ground But the allimportant citrus the financial backbone of the region apparently escaped serious damage Only young tender growth suffered 2 on JFK One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL Editor and Publisher BROADCAST SCHEDULE 1345 D KGLO 1SOO WOl Amt MO rawswa No 1 task for this Iowa Legislature TTS SURPRISING HOW MANY in Iowa and throughout the country have the mistaken no tion that our adoption of the judicial reform amendment to our state constitution last June automatically gave us an im proved court system No as sumption could be wider of the mark The ratification by pronounced majority did open the way to one of the finest court systems in our country maybe THE finest But the task is by no means completed Implement ing this judicial reform amend ment is up to the current ses sion of the General Assembly Nothing else done by our law makers will have a greater longrange effect The amendment approved by the people of Iowa was designed to take our judiciary out of partisan politics it calls for the appointment of judges from nominees screened by commis sions made up of representa tives of the bar and of the gen eral public But the amendment did not spell out the exact process by which this goalshall be achieved The proposal was purposely drawn in somewhat general terms as a matter of insuring maximum flexibility within the general principles of restricted executive appointment and em phasis on fitness The legisla ture is not straitjacked in its legislative functions A scrutiny of the amend ments language reveals that most of the provisions require legislation to become effective Among those which do not are the provisions repealing the former sections requiring elec tion of judges for four and six year terms and the section pro hibiting increase or decrease of a judges salary during his term These provisions in the new amendment are selfexecuting For a very practical reason the terms of all judges were ex tended to Dec 31 1964 This was to give the 1963 General As sembly ample time to pass the necessary implementing legis lation Here it should be observed that those who drafted the amendment studiously avoided both the fact or the appearance of encroaching on the legisla tive domain By giving approv al to the amendment on two oc casions our lawmakers demon strated an enlightened interest in the proposed amendment and qualified for full partner ship in translating it from broad principle to something specific Now were ready to consider some of the legislative decisions necessary to give our judicial amendment its maximum ef fectiveness The amendment sets forth how the nominating commis sions for both Supreme Court and District Courts shall be chosen with part appointive by the governor subject to sen ate confirmation and part elec tive by members of the bar But it does not designate the exact size of either the state or the district nominating commis sions The Supreme Court commis may range from 7 to 17 the District Court commissions from 7 to 13 There arc valid argvi ments for both the lesser and the greater numbers Its for the legislators to weigh the

President Kennedys btate of the Union message at a glance a billion tax cut over three starting with a billion reduction this year is the word He foresees no spec tacular reversal in Communist methods

US communities p winds of change are blowing more strongly than ever America has every reason to be lieve its tide is running strong SAME How tax cut would work WASHINGTON Treasury Monday provided some examples of tax cuts that individuals would receive when and if President Kennedys three year reduction program was finally in effect All were calculated for a taxpayer with a wife and two children Earning a tax reduc tion or about 30 per cent i i Ear a tax re duction or 225 per cent Earning a tax re duction or 196 per cent Examples were calculated on the assumption that all income is from wages and salaries and that the taxpayer takes the standard deduction Individual taxpayers eventually would save about billion a year under the top priority pro gram which Kennedy unveiled in his State of the Union Message to Congress The rest of the benefits would go to corporations Firststage rate cuts proposed for 1963 would total roughly equivalent to the biggest tax reductions of the past Kennedy said he wants individu al tax rates whacked from the present range of 20 to 91 per cent to a more sensible range of 14 to 65 per cent He asked Con gress to lower the top corporate rate from 52 per cent to the pre Korea level of 4 per cent This lifting of the wraps from the Jongawaited tax package was he high spot of the 4500word message broadcast live on all na tional television and radio net works in which Kennedy also the United States and its allies are winning the cold war at a time when SinoSoviet fric tions reveal the seeds of internal disintegration in the Communist camp the SovietUnion to make a choice between con tinued conflict with the West and the pathto peace The United States is ready for either eventu ality he declared the bare bones of a egislative program which apart from taxes ranges from the pro posed creation of a domestic peace corps to enactment of the medicare plan Kennedy described his tax pack age as a KENNEDY fiscally responsible p r o g ram the

appar ent the tax bill has been care fully tailored in an effort to meet anticipated opposition from congressional conserva tives Besides calling for gradual ratt cuts to lessen the adverse im pact on federal finances Kennedy advanced two companion pro posals that would aim in same direction 1 The enactment of tax re forms recouping billion of the revenues that would be lost through lower rates Reforms would begin going into effect next year 2 A plan to gradually speed quarterly tax payments by large corporations in order to boost revenues by billion without changing corporate tax liabiiities Kennedy also emphasized a de sire for haste in congressional consideration of tax legislation Now is the time to act he said We cannot afford to be timid or slow For this is the most
