why is Romney asking for a new

tax system? Simply because the
state is spending more money
faster than it is taking it in.
In an effort to offset criticism
from those who feel state govern-
ment is too big and it should cut
back and live within its income,
Romney insists the government is
not a vast bureaucracy whose de-
partments and agencies consume
the tax dollar.
"Only about one-fifth of the
general fund budget is for the
operations of our 19 departments,
the Legislature, judiciary and the
executive office," he says, explain-

STATE ROUNDUP:
Vacation Demonstrations Stop
At Grosse Pointe High School

By The Associated Press
GROSSE POINTE FARMS -!-
Calm returned' to Grosse Pointe
High School yesterday in the wake
of demonstrations earlier this
week by students protesting the
school's refusal to grant days off
during a semester break.
Students went home quietly after
classes Wednesday, and school of-
ficials said they were confident
there would be no further dis-
orders.
Police and school officials had
threatened more suspensions and
criminal prosecutions if the dem-
onstrations continued.
The protests involving 150 to
250 pupils began last Thursday
and were repeated on Monday and
Tuesday.
* * *
DETROIT-U.S. auto produc-
tion dipped sharply in January as
output ran nearly 18 per cent be-
hind that of a year ago.
The drop was blamed on a
variety of causes, including a
softening of the auto sales market
and bad weather which cut into
already abbreviated worksched-
ules.
Output for the month came to,

669,915 cars compared with 816,198
a year ago. It fell far short of the
industry's. original target of about
730,000 cars which had been set
for the opening month of 1967.
Industry sources remained con-
fident that the auto production
curve would head upward again
as soon as Spring and its tradi-
tional. buying surge arrived.

SAGINAW-Dr. A. A. Claytor,
prominent 73-year-old Saginaw
physician, and his wife, Marie, in
her 50s, were found slain today
in their home just outside of
Saginaw. Assistant Prosecutor
Gerald K. Dent of Saginaw County
said both deaths were "definitely
murder."
Dr. Claytor was the first Negro
to receive the Medical Society
honor and one of the first Negro
doctors in Michigan to practice at
hospitals.
He served a six-year term as
commissioner of the Virgin Islands
under appointment by former
President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Mrs. Claytor was named to, Gov.
George Romney's Commission on
the Status of Women in 1963.
