Boggs Cites Possibility
Of Further Tax Slash
WASHINGTON MP-A House Democratic leader said yesterday it
may be possible to cut taxes this year by more than President John
F. Kennedy proposed and still keep the deficit within the bounds the
President set.
Rep. Hale Boggs (D-La) based his estimate on what he said are
indications that the official forecast of an $11.9-billion deficit may
prove over-pessimistic.

In Moscow United States Am-
bassador Foy D. Kohler made a
formal protest to the Soviet f or-
eign office yesterday on instruc-
tion from Washington. The Unit-
ed States note demanded that Rus-
sia "take all necessary measures
to prevent any repetition" of vio-
lations of United States territory.
This is the first "clearly es-
tablished incident of a Soviet
overflight of the United States,"
a State Department spokesman
Need Defenses
Alaska's Gov. William Egan
and Sen." E. L. Bartlett, both
Democrats, said the incident points
up what they termed a need for
better air defenses in their state.
"We have been screaming for
protection along the northwest
coast, but we don't seem to get
any placei withthe Pentagon,"
Egan said in Juneau.
Bartlett told a reporter here
that "we have in Alaska a very
effective detection system, but
the evidence is pretty conclusive
that we are very ill equipped in
Alaska from the defense stand-
NoHostile Intent
The United States fighters did
not fire, officials said, because the
intruders displayed no hostile in-
tent and because'they were clear-
ly on a course leading away from
Alaska by the time of interception.
The flights of the two Soviet
information-gathering planes oc-
curred between 9 and 10 p.m
Thursday night, Alaskan time,
The aircraft flew across the
Bering Sea from the southwest
entering Alaskan territory over
Kuskokwim Bay and departing in
the vicinity of Hooper Bay. One
of the planes on a westerly course
flew over Nunibak Island. The
other on a more northwesterly
bearing flew over Nelson Island.
The Pentagon said there was no
doubt that the two were recon-
naissance aircraft and they were
so referred to in the note delivered
in Moscow.
The incident occurred against a
background of a worsening trend
in United States-Soviet relations.
Signs of the trend are disappoint-
ment of United States officials
with the slow pace of Soviet troop
withdrawals from Cuba, the break-
down of nuclear test-ban talks,
and the more angry tone in Soviet
propoganda against the United
States, particularly in Latin Amer-

pocrisy" by calling for budget cuts
and then voting for a bill contain-
ing an increase of nearly one-half
billion dollars over Kennedy's rec-
ommendations for spending on
planes, missiles and ships.
During the past 10 days spokes-
men for a wide variety of interests
have contended that Kennedy's
proposed first-stage tax cut, $3 bil-
lion effective this year, is inade-
quate for the economy-boosting job
he wants done. It might only in-
crease the deficit' without any
compensating benefit, the argu-
ment runs.
Immediate cuts ranging from $6
billion to more than $10 billion
were advocated by such diverse
groups as the AFL-CIO, National
Association of Manufacturers, the
Business-Financed Committee for
Economic Development, the Demo-
cratic majority and Republican
minority of the Joint Senate-
House EconomicCommittee-and
by Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of
New York, a prospect for the 1964
Republican presidential nomina-
Kennedy Plan
Kennedy proposed an ultimate
net tax cut, of $10.2 billion a year,
but he would reach this level in
three stages.
"The indications are that busi-
ness conditions will be better than
anticipated, even without the
stimulus of a tax cut," Boggs said
in an interview.

States Chamber of Commerce rec-
ommended yesterday cuts of 8.4
per cent in President John F.
Kennedy's request for new spend-
ing authority and of 4.5 per cent
in the spending he proposes for
1963-64 alone.
Disputing Kennedy and high ad-
ministration officials, the cham-
ber's board of directors contended
these cutbacks wouldrnot provoke
a recession.
In a detailed budget analysis,
the agency said $9.1 billion could
be trimmed from the $107.9 billion
