Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - January 24, 1963, Mason City, Iowa Cold wave grips South story on page HOME EDITION To probe new Cuban buildup WASHINGTON UP Sen Wayne Morse has ordered an im mediate Senate investigation into reports of a new roundtheclock Soviet military buildup in Cuba State Department officials will f DeGaulle I unpopular in Britain Strong views are galling By TOM LAMBERT New York Herald Tribune News Service LONDON Britains 16th century poet Sir Philip Sidney a man of sensitive feeling and shrewd discernment once called France that sweet enemy It is doubtful if Sir Philip published those words today if his adjective would go unchal lenged or uncontested More than likely some Briton shak ing with rage would bawl What about that blankety blank DeGaulle Because no matter what their feelings about his country a mounting wave of resentment and anger is building up among Britons against Frances tower ing leader Charles dcGaulle The man in the pub who has had a kind of amused tolerance for the French leader is now sputtering across his mug of bitters that he is guilty of every thing from cynicism to double dealing to trying to do us in Some officials jaw muscles tighten and their eyes turn cold ly bleak now just at the mention of his name This wave of feeling stems most immediately from De Gaulles blunt statement that he does not want Britain in the Common Market now If any thing that was a more painful twist of the lions tail than Americas recent subtraction of the Skybolt missile from Britains prospective weapons locker Though Britons sometimes are inclined to forget they spurned after World WarII the leader ship of Europe that DeGauHe now is trying to assume that they tore up their invitations to join the Common Market when it was being formed and later tried to torpedo it the French leaders bold statement that he wants no part of them has wounded angered and af fronted people here In effect he has given them the thumb in the eye Worse they know there is nothing they can do about it and this is as galling as what he said and ap parently intends to do to keep them out of the Common Market To some Britons who recall they gave DeGaulle aid and shelter during the war and then helped liberate his country sometimes forgetting they gave him abad time earlier in the war the French president dismissal of them from Europe is a callous return of a favor To his implication that Britain has made no concessions to entry into the Common Market they reply that this country ha accepted most of its funda mental policies To his contention Britain i insular they reply that the kind of Europe he seems to want i even more insular and re stricted To his talk of a Europeai community they reply he ob viously wants a Europe founded on a French planet with it neighbors dutiful satellite under French control Instead of uniting Europe some Briton say DeGauile seems bent on roping and hogtying it and of preventing the concept of unity In the Britain which only i few weeks ago was bubbling with antiAmericanism De Gaulles statements on Europe and the Common Market ha had another effect and one which may prompt the French leader suspicious of any sign of an AngloAmerican linkage to say I told you so It has led many Britons to think the Americans arent so bad after all less so even than the French Photofax ROYALTY Princess

shift in the way hey figure their taxes Those 65 million taxpayers would be nudged from itemizing their deductions into taking the standard 10 per cent deduc tion For them this would make the tax cut less juicy than it might have been President Kennedy said he does not want the changes to start until later this year and take full effect until 1965 And they wont take effect at all if Congress does not approve them At present single persons with incomes of and married couples with incomes of must pay some taxes The Pres ident has recommended adopt dren has an adjusted gross in come of Now he

the longawaited details of his ambitious and con troversial tax program in a 12 special message Ken nedy asked that the 1963 cuts be made retroactive to Jan 1 However the pocketbook effect on individuals would only come if and when a new tax law was enacted and employers began withholding less tax money from paychecks Kennedy assumes perhaps optimistically that this can be done by July l Proposed tax savings to to parceled out over a threeyear period would go as high as 39 per cent for nearly 10 million low income householders At the up per end of the income scale the average cut would be 9 per cent The Kennedy program aimed at squirting fiscal adrenalin into the economic bloodstream would combine billion of individual and corporate rate cuts with billion of revenueraising

program repre sents the very spur needed to boost employment put more mon ey into circulation and eventual ly put enough revenue into the federal Treasury to balance the soaring budget Even so the package will face certain opposition from some Congress members who shrink from the idea of cutting taxes at a time of mounting budget def icits In addition the program was just as certain to rile backers of the special tax benefits that Ken nedy would repeal or revise But all along the line the Pres ident obviously had made an ef fort to more than offset the bitter with the sweet These were some of the major items on the sweet side Individual tax rates now rang ing from 20 to 91 per cent would be cut in three steps to a new sliding scale running from a low of 14 per cent to a high of 65
