Curtis Calls Plan 'Artificial Wall,'
Indicating Congressional Fight
I, WASHINGTON (WP)--President John F. Kennedy proposed new
steps to stem the outflow of United States gold and dollars by asking
Congress to impose a tax on most. Ahierican purchases of foreign stocks
and bonds.
A signal that the bold proposal will run into troble was raised by
Rep. Thomas B. Curtis (R-Mo), a member of the House Ways and
Means Committee which will be the first to consider it. He told
O"newsnien he will fight the tax as
an "artificial wall."
Instead, Curtis said, the United
" ;. States should seek to keep invest-
~v ~ments at home by improving the
fiscal and business climate here

message to Congress, as "meaning-

rms to our national economic
pr ograms."

Robert. F. Kennedy told the Sen-
ate Judiciary Committee yester-
day that those who preach states'
rights are not "seeking the pro-
tection of the individual citizen,
but his exploitation."
In pleading before the southern-
dominated group for passage of
the administration's civil rights
program, Kennedy said:
"The time is long past when we
should permit the noble concept
'of states' rights to be betrayed
and corrupted ito a slogan to
hide the bald denial of American
rights and of human rights."
Kennedy told the committee
that passage of the controversial
public, accommodations part of,
the program is essential.h
In other action ten civil rights
demonstrators were arrested yes-
terday at the offices of the Chi-
cago Board of Education where
they have been staging a sit-in
campaign for nine days. The
arrests followed. a clash Wednes-
day between police and demon-
strators outside the downtown
office building in which the school
board has its headquarters.

day amended its order directing

fall, but no grade was specified.
The school board was ordered, in-
stead, to present a plan for using
the state's pupil placement law.

reduction. and revision program-
probably in two or three weeks.
Solely Administrative
Aside from the tax plan, other
steps outlined in Kennedy's mes-
sage are of an administrative
nature and require no Congres-
sional action.
The most significant of these
is the plan, starting Monday, for
the United States to begin, draw-
ing up to $500 million in foreign
currencies from the International
Monetary ,Fund.
This is the first time this coun-
try has exercised this privilege.
Kennedy said these currencies will
be used by the United States
Treasury to buy foreign-held dol-
lars that otherwise might be used
to pdrchase American gold.
Curb Foreign Investments
The President noted that efforts
to slow down short-term invest-
ments abroad-those of 90 days'
to a year-were taken earlier this
week when the Federal Reserve
Board raised from 3 to 3/2 per
cent the discount rate for its
banks' loans to other banks.
But because purchase of long-
term loans or securities issued by
foreign governments and business-
es have been rising rapidly further
action is necessary, he said.
Under his proposal, the tax for
American residents would be 15
per cent of the purchase price of
common stocks and other equity
securities issued by business in 22
industrialized countries.
Long-Term Maturity
In the case of bonds and other
securities maturing in three years
or longer and issued by govern-
mental and private interest in the
22 nations, the tax would range
from 21/2 per cent to 15 per cent.
Canada would be the nation
most affected by the plan and in-
terests there can be expected to

toward difficult areas of the issue.
Foreign Minister Andrei Gromy-

Harriman and Lord Hailsham
issued their most uncommunica-
tive communique of the week. It
said simply that they "met again
on July 18 to discuss some of the
provisions of a test ban treaty
covering tests in the atmosphere,
outer space and under water, and
also continued their exchange of
views on other matters of mutual
interest." The statement said "the
next meeting will be held on
July 19."

said progress was made in draft-
ing some of the provisions of a
test ban treaty.

talks in Geneva. Despite the new

days of the talks, the old treaties

big countries of the costly burden
of testing, not to mention the
danger it spells in speeding up and

strongman, Maj. Gen. Amin Hafez.
Crush Rebels
Four hours after the rebels
struck at strategic centers in Da-

of discharged military men" had
been beaten and crushed.
The nation of 4.5 million pre-
dominantly Moslem people was or-
dered under curfew. Its borders
were closed and international tele-
phone lines cut.
The revolt was launched short-
ly after Lt. Gen. Louay Atassi,
chairman of the Eyrian National
Revolutionary Council, flew to
Alexandria, Egypt, to meet Nasser.
Tried To Ease Feud
His mission was to try to ease
the feud between Syrian Ba'athist
leaders and Nasser. The feud has

The fact-finding report was de-

issues to clarify them for Ken-
nedy and Congress.
After the railroad and union
spokesmen met separately with
the panel on the report, Asst. Sec-
retary of Labor James J. Reynolds
said the union representatives
"questioned very few points."
J. E. Wolfe, chief negotiator
for the carriers, said he "wouldn't
be critical" of the report. "The
committee members listened to
the suggestions we made as to

In House Talk
WASHINGTON --Commissioner
of Education., Francis Keppel re-
newed his plea today- for federal
aid-to-education legislation that
has all but been lost in the run-
ning congressional debate over
civil rights.
His appeal before a House edu-
cation subcommittee marked the
11th time in three months that
he has testified on behalf of edu-
cation bills before House and Sen-
ate committees.
Some Capitol Hill observers be-
lieve that the attention of Con-
gress on civil rights, tax reforms
and, most recently a threatened
railroad strike may mean there
will be no action taken on educa-
tion legislation this year.
Keppel emphasized the need for
federal aid to wipe out various so-
cial problems, including the in-
equality of educational opportuni-
ty between Negroes and whites.
The project, introduced in 1956,
provides additional guidance and
remedial help in schools for un-
derprivileged children. It also of-
fers a broad range of cultural ex-
"Estimates indicate that in the
14 largest cities, one child out of
every three in the public schools is
culturally deprived, that is, with
a background so meager that his
classroom learning is handicap-
ped," Keppel testified.
The matter of handling such
special problems, he continued,
should rest with the cities and
states, but the federal govern-
ment should be an "interested

Study Delves

Committee To Review
Needs and Policy in
Fall Interim Report
Despite a similar study by Gov.
George Romney's Citizens Com-
mittee on Higher Education, the
Michigan Council of State College
Presidents is conducting its own
investigation into the future needs
and problems facing higher educa-
tion in the state.
The study, initiated in June, is
being undertaken 'at the request of
the Coordinating Council for High-
er Education and is delving into
three distinct, but linked, areas-
enrollments, faculty, and capital
outlay, Executive Director of the
President's Council Ira Polley said.
Blue Ribbon Work
The "blue ribbon" committee is
completely reviewing higher edu-
cation in Michigan. It is ta make
an interim report on needs and
policy this fall for preparation of
the 1964 budget and a final report
in September, 1964.
While the study delves into the
rising enrollment, faculty needs
and capital outlay needs for the
next five' years, it is centered
around the "crucial years" of 1964-
65, Polley added.
There is some possibility that
the results will be used for some
type of public presentation to In-
form the citizens of the state of
the needs and problems of higher
Avoid Delays
Although the Coordinating Coun-
cil fully endorsed the work of the
"blue ribbon" committee, "it
didn't believe that public policy
decisions could be delayed for the
great period of time that they
would need to handle the prob-
lem," Polley said.
Executive Vice-President Mar-
vin Niehuss said that the "purpose
of the study is to present a picture
of the capacities and needs of all
institutions in the state."
Even though both studies are
along thesame lines Niehuss be-
lieved that the blue ribbon report
would be more extensive and com-
plete. "I hope that there is no ob-
jection or opposition by the com-
mittee to this study," he added.
Ready in September
The results of the study are ex-
pected to be compiled in Septem-
ber. This is one month ahead of
the estimated date of the blue rib-
bon committee's report. However,
both Polley and'Niehuss indicated
that the schools' investigation in
no way was an attempt to block
or head off the work of the blue
ribbon committee.
University Administrative Dean
Robert Williams heads the faculty
section of this study. He has al-
ready completed and submitted a
preliminary draft.
