This written appeal was di rected to President Eisenhower recently by a Midwestern young ster who feared his parents would be jailed as income tax cheats The boy had a special reason for offering to serve any jaii term that might be required To occupy his idle hours he had juggled the figures in his fa thers account books much to the dismay of tax agents The White House sent the let ter to the Internal Revenue Service which dispatched an understanding agent to call on Jim and assure him no one will be jailed IRS would not say where Jim Jives because it cannot identify people who have tax

to deal from strength We have terrific strength in the military and in our country Twining said he believes the possibility of an allout nuclear war with the Soviet Union is very very slim GATES SAID there is noth ng to justify a belief that the Soviets will make substantive concessions which will reduce our security requirements On the contrary he added the So viet Union is increasing its mili tary capabilities particularly in the missile delivery field But the impression in some quarters that the Soviet Union has overtaken or even outdis tanced the United States in military power is simply not supported by the facts he de clared MANNED BOMBERS a rm stili for both ourselves and the USSR the primary means of delivering heavy nuclear weap ons in the volume and with the accuracy needed to
