sessions were closed to press and public a change in US policy enunciated there was publicized The United States is assessed 3202 per cent of the If N budget It pays at the same rate for peace keeping

federal government had lim ited its role in Birmingham to that of mediator But he said the situation could be quite different if two Negro graduate students win entry this summer to the Huntsville

Wednesday The whole thing is objec tionable the governor told his news conference Hughes said he was at loss for words to describe an amend ment approved by the Senate providing a sales tax exemp tion for Nebraska and Minne sota shoppers in Iowa counties bordering their states Hughes criticized the Senate for failing to include a with holding provision for personal income taxes and objected to the way the additional revenue raised by hiking sales use and corporation taxes would be dis tributed The governor previously in dicated he would veto a tax bill unless awithholding plan was included Democratic senators accused Republicans of a doublecross on the withholding plan It ap i Tax plan to House DES MOINES Iff A reve nue bill counting chiefly on a sales tax increase to produce million mostly earmarked for various property tax re lief plans was laid before the House Thursday for approval The bill passed by the Sen ate 2822 late Wednesday would raise the sales and use taxes from 2 to

Hughes said another objection to the bill was that it made what he considered unsatisfac tory use of the additional rev enue it will produce each year He said he would like to see less extra money go to agricul tural land tax credits and more go to school aid The Democratic governor had this comment on a provision raising the use tax to three per cent on used cars trucks and trailers but keeping it at two per cent on new vehicles This seems to be the method this guy who hasnt got anything gets stuck Release name of first Yank to top Everest KATMANDU Nepal WVThe American who g o t to the top
