i fgPITIQNj No 74 I Precedent If I made to I be broken yS Kennedys set furious pace By MERRIMAN SMITH WASHINGTON UPI Presi dent and Mrs John F Kennedy are breaking ground in new forms of White House entertainment that will be difficult for future administrations to beat The President and the first lady who like to do things dif ferently have been setting a pace for White House parties that makes the staid formal receptions of the past seem dull and stuffy The President receives his hon ored guests in the family quarters and he the first lady and their party come down the winding stairway preceded by the colors and the Marine Band playing Hail to the Chief But after that the Kennedys and their social secretary Letitia Baldridge throw tradition ta the winds to make their parties gayer and to put their guests more at ease Every formal dinner party they have given in honor of a chief of state or topstrata guest has fea tured unique worldfamous artists with the accent heavy on culture Performing on the White House stage under the sparkling chan deliers in the golddraped East Room have been cellist Pablo Casals the Shakespearean Festi val Theatre Metropolitan Opera stars and actor Frederick March The next prominentmtisician to appear before the Presidents guests will be violinist Isaac Stern accompanied by cellist Leonard Rose and pianist Eugene Istomin Stern will play at a din ner honoring French minister of culture Andre Malraux and his wife The Kennedy guest list also con tains the names of persons known throughout the country for per sonal achievement in the arts sciences and literature Typical of the type of guests for the Malraux dinner will be playwright Tennessee Williams and actress Julie Harris President and Mrs Kennedy have the happy social faculty of always seeming to enjoy their own parties Both former Presidents Harry S Truman and Dwight D Eisen hower and their wives older and more settled always were con tent to let the State Departments protocol division lay down the rules They always started their parties promptly and ended them promptly by departing toward the family elevator at the appointed hour a broad hint for guests to leave Both Truman and Eisenhower stuck to a smaller entertainment budget Kennedy digs into his own ATHENS Greece AP The United States agreed Saturday to give its North Atlantic Treaty Organization allies more infor mation on the extent arid power of American nuclear stockpiles an official source said The US move was disclosed the NATO allies meeting be hind closed doors reportedly adopted a new nuclear policy call ing on alliance members to work out guide lines on how and when atomic tactical weapons should be used in event of a Soviet attack NATOs foreign and defense ministers had been seeking agree ment on a proposed policy for resort to nuclear arms in case of Red attack that would still give President Kennedy the final de cision The plan was contained in a re port read by NATO Secretary General Dirk U Stikker Sources said Italian and French representatives expressed reser vations on Stikkers report but diplomatically avoided any action that would obstruct implementa tion of the policy As a result informed sources saidthe NATO Permanent Coun cil which meets in Paris will handle the information exchange while military representatives of the NATO members work out the guide lines Stikkers report provided for such a procedure After a brief discussion the ministers agreed to this effect adopt ing the new nuclear policy France reportedly has reserva tions about the nuclear policy be cause it will not go as far as President Charles de Gaulle would like It does not change Kennedys right to veto the use of nuclear weapons something the French reportedly would like to see changed The idea of the guide lines is to work out the conditions un der which nuclear tactical wea pons might be used in war These conditions would guide field commanders in determin ing when to apply to the Presi dent of the United States for permission to use such weap ons A purpose of unified policy on guide lines is to give all NATO members a sense of participat ing in crucial nuclear decisions Medics rise against medical care plan POINT PLEASANT N J Leaders of a movement to get doctors to refuse to treat pa tients participating in the pro posed federal medical care plan for the

SAME Uowa Department White Mcms No Traffic Death in 2J Hours Death in Hours LI amor grows in Iowa for positive property tax relief By DAN PERKES be needed to meet to help raise an additional mil DES MOINES AP Direct taxation as an indirect means of reducing property taxes continues as one of the most pressing politi cal issues of the day in Iowa The issue was given additional emphasis this week when a legis lative committee studying state revenue needs said it is consider ing possible sources of revenue that would replace part of the present property tax load The committee also that even without increases in state spending additional sources of revenue will be needed to meet the budget of the next bicnnium The committee said it is giving sorious consideration to securing necessary funds from the sales tax presumably by a boost from two to three a sales tax on all services motels hotels income tax and a tax on liquor by the drink The sales lax already has be come a prime issue in the pres ent primary campaign Former Ll Gov William H Nicholas of Clear Lake has pro posed a three per cent sales tax to help raise an additional mil lion a year for property tax relief through additional state aid to schools Nicholas seeking the Republi can nomination for governor in directly has accused his opponent incumbent Gov Norman Erbe of running away from the issue Erbe has said he would veto any tax increase if there were no guarantee the extra money would go for property tax relief The governor feels there should be controls on local government as through refer make state aid truly effective as property tax replace ment Some political observers feel hat Erbe is playing it cool on the tax issue They point out that Democrat Herschel Loveless defeated Re publican William Murray of Ames in the 1958 governors race be cause of Murrays advocation of a three per cent sales tax The Iowa Taxpayers Associa tion has neither taken a stand neither for nor against a three per cent sales lax The associations campaign is for property tax relief H believes also that any lax increase must absolutely guarantee property tax make a temporary adjustment The association further feels the answer to the property lax problem lies in slowing local gov ernment expenditures increasing the property tax base and shift ing more of the cost of local gov ernment to some source of reve nue other than property taxes Ray Edwards the associations executive secretary snid Satur v day that if there is no change in I he property t1x trend at all and local government spending contin ues at the present rate lowans can expect a 17mill increase within the next five years If million additionally in state aid were pumped back to local governmental units lowans still have a 10mill increase m property taxes within five years Edwards said Therefore we must stabilize the millage rate in addition to more state it is up to the legislature to take certain 4 ;
