In Congress
publicans asserted yesterday a tax
cut proposed in an administra-
tion-backed bill awaiting House
action would amount to only "cig-
arette money" for the average
wage earner.
Nine of the 10 GOP members of
the Ways and Means Committee
charged also in a minority report
that an amendment proposed by
the Treasury Department would
result in a $4.4-billion windfall to
big business over the next 10 years.
The Republicans said they op-
pose a tax cut at this time and
called the measure "an integral
part of an over-all fiscal program
of planned deficits-a tax cut on
borrowed money."
"A tax cut of more than $11
billion with no hope of a balanced
budget for the foreseeable future,
is both morally and fiscally
wrong," they asserted.
The Republicans rejected what
they called "President John F.
Kennedy's claim that planned defi-
cits will produce economic pros-
peritl. Past experience shows that
deficits produce the opposite re-
"Is the tax cut worth the price?"
they asked. "For the average wage
earner, the bill will result in a tax
reduction by the year 1965 of be-
tween $1.50 and'$2.00 per week.
Are these taxpayers willing to have
the government go into debt at the
rate of $10 billion per year for the
foreseeable future to give them the
equivalent of cigarette money?"

Most of them, led by Patriarch
Athenagoras of Constantinople,

able margin of the limited nuclear

Could Win
BARTLESVILLE, Okla. (2) --
Talking like a man who would like
to try, Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-
Ariz) said yesterday Republicans
can win in 1964 if they offer a
"clear-cut choice" to President
John F. Kennedy.
Goldwater, a conservative con-
tender for his party's presidential
nomination although not an an-
nounced candidate, said in a
speech prepared for the Republi-
can Men's Club that no "little Sir
Echo" nominee will do.
"The Republicans can and must
offer this nation a choice when
any of our candidates go before
the electorate," he said. "We must
offer the chance for sound policies
here at home and for freedom
around the world. We don't want
to be known as little Sir Echo. We
want real Republican voices and
choices to be heard."

No Incidents
In Huntsville and Mobile, where
racial barriers also fell recently
under federal court orders, Negro
and white students went to class
together again without incident.
The scene in Mobile was peaceful
in contrast to Thursday's demon-
stration which resulted in arrest of
54 students.
A spokesman for the anti-Negro
National States Rights Party said
he and three of his aides have been
subpoenaed by a specially conven-
ed United States grand jury meet-
ing here next Monday.
Pledges To Keep Fighting
Edward R. Fields, the party's in-
formation director and editor of
the race-baiting publication, "The
Thunderbolt," pledged to continue
a campaign "to establish white
private schools."
Hundreds of white students re-
mained away from West End High
for the fourth day in a row, but
the Birmingham School Board said
attendance was higher than at any
time since the boycott began.

Detroit Attacks Romney Tax Program

... tax program


Gov. George Romney's tax-
reform program, as expected, has
drawn comments from all points
of the- state, including a big roar
of disapproval from Detroit where
city leaders claimed the program
would cost the city at least $10
million-not $4.5 to $.5 million as
Romney said.
Detroit Mayor Jerome Cavan-
agh said the governor's proposal
to cut city income tax payments
of nonresidents to one-half of one
per cent and to exempt corpora-
tions from the Detroit income tax
would cost the city, at least $10
million a year at a time it is fight-
ing back to attain fiscal stability.
"The governor's program," Cav-
anagh said, "seems to be complete-
ly inconsistent and in contradic-
tion with his oft-stated position
that he proposed to give local units
of government more adequate
sources of revenue.
Sees Loss of Revenue
"It does exactly the opposite
as far as Detroit is concerned.
The loss as revenue to the city
would be an extremely serious det-
riment to the continued efficient
operation of city government and
to Detroit's efforts to eliminate
its deficit."
Though his criticism was direct-
ed mai ly at the portion of the
Romney program, affecting Detroit
finances, Cavanagh said he had
"reservations about other aspects
of his (Romney's) program."
Meanwhile, Grand Rapids City
Manager George Bean said:
"I would say that our analysis
of the one. per cent proposal so
far 1-'as been that it will meet city
needs for quite some time in the
"The only concrete thing that

has been done (about the city in-
come tax) in Grand Rapids, how-
ever, is that in the budget mes-
sage to the city commission for

sary revenue to carry on our pro-
Delos Hamlin of Farmington,
chairman of the Oakland County
Board of Supervisors and a mem-
ber of the board of directors of
the National Association of Coun-
ties, said he first would want tax-
payer reaction before commenting
on the putting into effect the new
provisions proposed by Romney in-
cluding the auto tax and property
"Counties in general can use the
money," Hamlin said. "We're be-
ing required to assume gradually
more services that historically
were rendered by the state. For
example, in the field of mental
health. Our revenue sources have
to be expanded to meet these de-
Impressed with Program
Robert Fryer, executive secre-
tary of the Michigan Municipal
League, said he was favorably im-
pressed with the Romney pro-
"It appears there has been an
attempt to consider the needs of
all levels of government, but
whether they are fairly dealt with
is something to be determined
later," Fryer said.
Berkley Mayor George Kuhn,1
head of the Vigilance Tax Com-
mittee which is seeking voter ap-
proval of any income tax, said the
fiscal program violated Romney's
campaign pledges of citizen par-
ticipation in government.
'Star Is Falling'
"The governor's ,presidential
star probably is falling pretty
fast," Kuhn said. "It is unthink-
able that he would suggest new
taxes without control or limitation
or voter approval. I oppose the
program as a package because it
totally disregards our committee's
ideas about citizen control."
Livonia Mayor Harvey Moelke
said he had "real resevrations"
about any program involving an
income tax.
Saginaw Mayor G. Stewart
Francke called Romney's propos-
als the "best program that has

Thinks Cities Penalized
He said, however, that exempt-
ing corporations from local in-
come taxes would penalize highly
industrialized cities, which incur a
large expense to serve their indus-
Mayor Lawrence A. Frost of
Monroe said the program is a "just
and equitable application of tax-
ing power." He said tax adjust-
ment in Michigan is long overdue.
He said the optional one per
cent city income tax is "not so
optional." He said that taking
away sales taxes on food and
drugs might force the city to
adopt an income tax. He said
Monroe has not been considering
an income tax.
