To Seek Cut

Of Over $500
In Retail Excis

JOHNSON CITY (')-President
Lyndon B. Johnson decided yes-
terday to seek repeal next year
of $550 million of excise taxes on
retail purchases. and to consider
reductions in scores of other ex-
Johnson made the decisions at
a conference at his ranch home
with Secretary of the Treasury
Douglas Dillon.
Later Dillon reported on admin-
istration tax plans at a news con-
ference at the White House press
center in Austin. He said Johnson
will seek repeal of all excise taxes
assessed at retail-taxes on toile-
tries, cosmetics,. jewelry, furs, ug-
gage and handbags.

Most of these taxes add 10 per
cent to the purchase price of such
goods and have been in effect
since the Korean War or, in some
cases, longer. They are regarded
as a nuisance by many retailers.
In addition, the treasury chief4
said, the administration will rec-
ommend reduc ions in a number
of excise taxes levied at the manu-
facturing level. He added that the
eventual size of the total tax cut
"will definitely be a good deal
more" than $550 million.
Dillon said Johnson wants to
assess the economic outlook later
in the year before making a final
decision on the scope of the tax
cuts, which would be expected to
go into effect next July 1.

Dillon predicted that the tax
proposals will represent "a rather
easy bill to pass," and that the
administration's biggest problem
may be to persuade Congress not
to increase its size.
He also said he discussed with
Johnson forthcoming administra-
tion tax proposals aimed at im-
proving the climate for foreign
investmentnin the United States,
and at ending certain abuses by
tax-exempt foundations.
The Johnson-Dillon meeting is
covering tax legislation for the
next Congress along with a review
of financial and economic condi-
tions on both a domestic and in-
ternational basis.

While Johnson has hopes of
holding his new budget under
$100 billion, the tax cut would

icit. For the present fiscal year

Sororities Reject
New Rush Plan
Panhel To Consider Modifications
Of Defeated Open-Mixer Proposals
The legislative body of the sorority system yesterday slowed its
recent trend toward liberalizing of rush procedures by defeating a
proposal which would have set up unstructured mixers in spring
The Panhellenic President's Council, composed of sorority presi-
dents and the Panhel executive officers, ,voted 16-11 to defeat the
open mixer proposal.
There was one abstention in the vote which would have required
support from two-thirds of those present or 19 favorable, tallies.
However, the prospects for a modified mixer policy are not
ended as compromise measures

STUDENTS RIOTED LAST NIGHT AND TODAY in Sasebo and Tokyo in protest against the dock-

docking could lead to the United States' use of Japan as a base for stockpiling of nuclear weapons.

SGC Member,
Proposes Limit
on Out- Staters
Student Government C 9 u n c i i
member Thomas Smithson, '65,
suggested last night that the Uni-
versity should consider evaluating
the question of out-of-state en-
rollment on the basis of the num-
ber of Michigan students being
educated in other states.
Reporting to council, Smithson
said, "Figures show that the state
of Michigan educates students
from states who appear not to
bear their share of the nation-
wide burden of higher education."
Citing figures from a federal
study of 1963, Smithson continued,
"For example, Michigan has en-
rolled a great deal more students
from Illinois, Ohio and New York
than the colleges in these states
have accepted from Michigan.
"Whether this indicates a need
for revision of admission policy is
not yet clear to me," he added.
However, he did not his concern
that the University maintain a
significant percentage of out-of-
state students.
Smithson's report consisted in
addition of a break-down of the
enrollment in three University
schools for the years 1961-1964 as
derived from the figures of the
