Celebrezze To Appeal

WASHINGTON-Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare

nnedy administration, for a new version of federal aid to educa-

European Members
Challenge French,
BRUSSELS ()-Five of the six
nations in the European Common
Market last night rallied behind
Britain against the threat of a
blackball from President Charles
de Gaulle to block British entry
into the flourishing trading bloc.
West Germany, Italy, Belgium,
Holland and Luxembourg chal-
lenged the French leader's con-
tention that Britain was not yet
ready to link up with Europe.
Standing Alone
De Gaulle faced the prospect of
standing alone-a role he has
played before and often won out.
This time he held a strong hand,
for admission to the exclusive
economic club must be by unan-
imous vote.
Britain pressed its application
for membership in negotiations
here with the Market's ministers-
including the French representa-
tive-in an atmosphere of anxiety
with traces of anger.
Foreign Minister Paul - Henri
Spaak of Belgium hurriedly called
a news conference and said:
"I hope that no delegation will
show itself intransigeant. That
would be to take on a very great
responsibility. Such a check would
lead to international complications
that it is better to avoid, for we
are, after all, allies of Great Brit-
ain in other fields and even in
essential fields."
Spaak said he had been embar-
rassed by de Gaulle's statement on
television Sunday at the very mo-
ment Belgium was taking over
chairmanship of the negotiations
for Britain's entry into the market.
De Gaulle has insisted Britain
remodel her economy along con-
tinental lines before being ac-
cepted to full membership in the
trade bloc credited with booming
Western Europe's economy to un-
precedented heights.
Britain has held out for terms
that would bring a gradual ad-
justment-and safeguard major
economic links with Common-
wealth countries.

Tax Slash
WASHINGTON (A') - President
John F. Kennedy tentatively plans
to detail his proposals for a $13.5
billion slash in tax rates in a spe-
cial message to Congress Jan. 24.
The timing of the tax message
was confirmed yesterday by House
Speaker John McCormack (D-
Mass) after he and other Demo-
cratic congressional leaders met
with President Kennedy at the
White House.
McCormack, agreeing with the
President that tax legislation is the
top priority item facing Congress
this year, said the House Ways
and Means Committee will con-
sider the administration proposals
"very quickly."
May Delay
McCormack and Senate Demo-
cratic leader Mike Mansfield of
Montana indicated that early at-
tention to taxes may well delay
committee consideration of Presi-
dent Kennedy's controversial plan
to provide medical insurance, for
the aged under the social security
President Kennedy will also send
Congress a proposal for more than
$53 billion in new appropriations
for defense and military aid.
This will include more than $52
billion for defense and about $1.5
billion for more military aid to
friendly countries.
McCormack said the adminis-
tration's youth opportunities bill,
to aid unemployed youths with
few job skills, also was discussed.
Congress was showing unmistak-
able signs it intends to accept
President Kennedy's invitation to
cut taxes this year. But members
awaited more concrete details be-
fore committing themselves to the
actual formula.
Secretary of Commerce Luther
H. Hodges said yesterday a tax cut,
if not too little and too late, is the
surest way to spur economic
growth and ward off future reces-

WASHINGTON-A long-await-
ed report on the outlook for de-
velopment of a supersonic airliner
urged yesterday that the United
States get started on the project

A group of faculty members
agreed that generally President
John F. Kennedy's latest State of
the Union Address was moderate
and more realistic in its demands
than the previous two that the
President has made.
Prof. John P. White of the poli-
tical science department stated
that, "it appears the administra-
tion is seeking significant but lim-
ited objectives, and therefore is
determined not to ask too much
from Congress, which is still con-
servative in its complexion."
He said that the President has
asked for things that he can hope
to get from Congress. Prof. White
noted that Kennedy apparently
didn't feel that this was the time
to ask for civil rights legislation,
but that he "could ask for it at a
later date."
Peace Corps
Prof. White said that the Do-
mestic Peace Corps "reflects the
general impression that the orig-
inal Peace Corps has been success-
ful." The predictions of the op-
ponents have not come true, and
the criticism, "Why should we
send people overseas when we have
problems at home," has. been par-
tially eliminated. "We might meet
the still remaining criticism of the
original Peace Corps in the near
future," he said.
Prof. Norman Thomas, also of
the political science department,
agreed that the speech was gener-
ally a conservative one. He pre-
dicted that it will be better receiv-
ed by Congress than the other
President Kennedy State of the
Union Addresses.
He suggested that the President
may be "casting an eye to 1964,"
and that he wants to be sure of
"getting something done," to bet-
ter his chances for re-election. He
also noted that the President
seems to be "maturing in office.
His Program
The President is concerned with
"boosting a faulty economy," and
his program of tax reduction and
tax reform is a "good and sensible
plan," Prof. Thomas commented.
President Kennedy may not get
all he asks from Congress, "but it
is hoped that they do a consider-
able amount in the area," he add-

The order was issued because
the university airport, where con-
struction has begun, belongs to
the University of Mississippi and
has not been leased or sold to
anyone, said Judge William H.
The.order forbids the mechani-
cal and electrical contractors to
continue work on the project, but
does not name the federal govern-
ment, Anderson said.

retary of Labor James J. Reynolds

Prof. Thomas also noted that
Kennedy had "slighted other areas
of the New Frontier," such as civil
rights, aid to education, and Medi-
care, but he predicted that these
topics will nevertheless get the at-
tention of Congress.
Radical Proposals
In conclusion, Prof. Thomas not-
ed that no drastic or radical pro-.
posals were made, and that the,
speech seemed to favor effective
and active steps in our domestic
problems, and it was not "inac-
curate in emphasizing our position
in world affairs."
Prof. J. Philip Wernette of the
business administration depart-


ment said that he believed that
Kennedy would get some of his
tax reform proposal, but "not the
whole package." He noted the sig-
nificance of the absence of Senator
Kerr this year, who had always
defended the 27 per cent oil deple-
tion tax allotment. "He was always
a stumbling block for a tax reform
bill," Wernette said, so the pros-
pects for passage of a bill of this
type are enhanced.
Prof. Wernette called the ad-
dress a "generally good represen-
tation of recommendations to
Congress." He said that the pro-
posed changes in the tax rate were
"sound," and that they would be
"helpful in the long run."
