Romney Calls Legislature,

Tax Reform

Kowalski Cites ADC-U Benefits

Speaking in favor of adoption
+ of a legal plan for participation in
the federal, Aid to ,Dependent
Children of the Unemployed pro-
gram, ' House minority leader
Joseph J. Kowalski (D-Detroit)
recently blasted Gov. George Rom-
ney for not meeting federal re-
quisites for participation.
"The governor is so bullheaded
that he thinks he can run both
the government of Michigan and
the federal government," Kowal-
ski said. "I'm with (Health, Edu-
cation and Welfare Secretary An-
R thony J.) Celebrezze on this and
I told Romney that even before
he took office."
Kowalski explained that the
ADC-U program would stimulate
property tax relief for local gov-
ernments and. that this fact would
make it an impoytant plank in
Romney's as-yet-unannounced fis-
cal program.
Celebrezze vs. Romney
Celebrezze and Romney have
been on opposite sides of the
ADC-U' fence ever since the Legis-
* lature enactedT law to allow state;
participation in the nationwide
program, only to be turned down
by Celebrezze. He rejected the plan
as "discriminatory" and. unworthy
of federal funds, thus incurring
Romney's wrath.
"I think Romney is acting pre-
* maturely" in not meeting federal,
requirements, Kowalski said. "He
should wait until he's elected as
a national officer before he,:starts
issuing ultimatums to the federal
government."
As, to the rest of Romney's tax

reform plans, "they're still a deep, late the highway program," Ko-
dark secret," Kowalski said, add- walski said.
ing that as yet he hasn't even "Even if state liquor stores are
gotten a letter from the governor eliminated, that's still only a one-
giving official notification of the shot deal. It leaves us no better
special session Romney raportedly off than before. Don't forget, we
will call for Sept. 11. still owe Wayne County several
Don't Know Yet million dollars for the care of

"We've been changing our plans
in anticipation of such a special
session, but as yet we have no
official confirmation either of the
date or of the topics to be con-
sidered at that time," Kowalski
continued.
As it is, Kowalski explained, the
Democrats have only been able to
lay out "ground rules" for their
own tax reform proposals. "This is
not enough, however. We can't
come to Lansing unless we get of-
ficial notification of a special ses-
sion. Romney regulates the ground
rules, and only he can call the
session," Kowalski said'
"Until then, we're not in a posi-
tion to elaborate on our plans,"
he ,added.,
Economy Kick
Kowalski reiterated the Demo-
cratic Party's stand in favor of a
statewide income tax and against
local option taxes. "I don't know
how (Sen. William) Milliken kR-
Traverse City) can say Romney
might economize enough elsewhere
to have both an income tax and
local options in his program," he
said.
"How can they do it-by raiding
the highway fund? Once they
start there, they have yto stop
somewhere or completely ernascu-

state mentally illpersons."
'Hogwash'
Kowalski denounced thle idea
that levying a state income tax,,
with part of the proceeds to be
returned to local units of gov-
ernment, would put some com-
munities in the position of being
forced to take money they neither
needed nor wanted. "That's a lot
of hogwash. They don't have to
take it if they don't want it," he
said.
"These areas have local officials
who are elected locally. If any of-
ficial is shown to be inefficient, he
can be removed from office. That's
the way it is under a democracy,
and that's the way it should be,"
he added.
Kowalski also scored Romney's
idea of changing the amounts of
funds collected from various
sources of current revenue.
"Switching around within the
structure as it now stands is not
fiscal reform. We have a patch-
work of taxes as it is."
Asked how the current federal
tax cut would affect Michigan tax
reform and economy, Kowalski
denied that they were interrelated.
"I'm in the state government, not
the federal government. I shouldn't
be telling them what's good and
what's bad."
Milliken had noted a definite
connection between the two, say-
ing that such a move would stim-
ulate activity in Michigan by in-
creasing purchasing power within
the state.

Body To Air
Redistricting,
Fiscal Plan
Schedule Discussion
Of State Law Change
By STEVEN HALLER I
Gov. George Romney yesterday
issued his official call summoning
the Legislature to a special session
beginning Sept. 11, at which the
governor's fiscal reform program
will be the major topic.
Legislative reapportionment and
proposed new laws to implement
the new state constitution are alsoI
on the agenda. Romney explained
that the constitution will not be
discussed until the Legislature has4
finished with reapportionment and
"substantially completed" tax re-
form.
Romney's plan to submit his7
fiscal reform package as specific
bills was seen by Sen. Stanley G.
Thayer (R-Ann Arbor) as cap-1
able of being construed as an r t-
tempt to "maintain a close per-
sonal grip on subject matter" and1
still allow himself "some flexibil-
ity" should other issues come up
during the session.
Thayer explained that the legis-
lators "can always expand upon
the governor's original call but
cannot detract from it." Since they
can stay in session as long as they
want by such additions to the
original call, the expected closing
date of Nov. 15 may be wishful
thinking, Thayer added.
Romney has announced that de-
tails of his forthcoming tax pro-
gram are "nearly complete" with-
out revealing exactly what the
program will request. However, he
has not removed the primary focus
from tax relief for business and
low income groups, local option
and adequate provisions f o r

jWorld News
Roundup
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-The State De-
partment indicated disapproval
yesterday of a reported Soviet pro-
posal for a German peace treaty
dividing Germany.
Press Officer Richard I. Phillips
said the department does not know
yet exactly what Soviet Foreign
Minister Andrei Gromyko has pro-
posed, so the department is not in
a position yet to issue formal com-
ment.
"However," he said, "our posi-
tion is well known with respect to
a German peace treaty: we would
sign a peace treaty only with a
united Germany."
RAWALPINDI, Pakistan --
Strains in United States-Pakistani
relations were taken up by Under-
secretary of State George W. Ball
in a talk with President Moham-
med Ayub Khan yesterday.
It was the ouset of a round of
conferences Ball is to have with
officials of the Moslem nation.

WASHINGTON - Returning
from its Labor Day weekend, the
Senate found it lacked a quorum
and adjourned until today. A
check showed only 45 of the 100
Senators were in Washington.

UNITED NATIONS-Haiti has
requested that the United Nations
Security Council meet at once to
discuss a charge of aggression from
the Dominican Republic.
Haitian Foreign Minister Rene
Chalmers charged the Dominican
Republic had turned from a "policy
of threats to one of unmistakable
aggression."
NEW YORK-The New York
Stock Exchange surged to a record
1963 high on the largest volume in
about, two months. The Dow-Jones
averages showed 30 industrials up
2.70, 20 rails down .48, 15 utilities
up .27 and 65 stocks up .48.

The proposed National Service
Corps should be internationalized,
Prof. Herbert C. Kelman of the
psychology department said re-
cently.
In an article prepared for the
Center for Research on Conflict
Resolution, Prof. Kelman argues
that such an arrangement "would

would foster good will toward the
United States and create a more
favorable atmosphere for foreign
aid programs," Prof. Kelman says.
By allowing recipients of our
foreign aid to help us, "the resent-
ment engendered by one-sided aid
would be reduced." This would
provide "greater satisfaction to
both participants and a firmer
basis for friendship between them.
Picture Humanized
Prof. Kelman argues that such
a move "would help to humanize
the picture of the United States"
but that few people would "cast
doubts on the health of American
society." It is much more likely
that "they would be impressed
with the health of a society that is
able to face its problems honestly
and to accept help in the solution
of these problems."
In addition the plan represents
"an extremely effective form of
international exchange. There is
probably no more powerful way of
developing a sense of identifica-
tion with a country and commit-
ment to its welfare than by being
placed in a position of helping
that country," Prof. Kelman says.
Must Be Equipped
For the success of the program,
however, "it is essential that the
volunteers from other countries
be in fact equipped to make a gen-
uine and unique contribution to
the problems assigned to them,"
he says.

localities with such problems as
slum clearance and improving the
conditions of the migratory work-

for internationalizing the carps is
