A BILL which would increase Social Security benefits by 20
per cent instead of the five per cent provided by pending legisla-
tion was presented yesterday by Rep. Wilbur Mills (D-Ark.)
The legislation by Mills, who is chairman of the tax-writing
Ways and Means Committee, would make the increase effective
June 1.
The bill would be financed by increasing the taxable base
income for Social Security from the present $9,000 to $12,000.

THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE (IRS) yesterday is-
sued guidelines under the new Campaign Financing Act.
According to the guidelines, the candidates must file forms if
contributions for their campaigns are to be eligible for a tax deduction
or credit.
In addition, the IRS said, individual taxpayers must get - a

,stantiate the tax deductions or credit to be allowed for the first time
on 1972 returns.

THE TOBACCO INDUSTRY is manufacturing fewer ciga-
rettes but more small cigars, a report by the Internal Revenue
Service shows.
In one month alone, last December, production of small cigars
more than doubled over the December 1970 while the number of
cigarettes manufactured actually declined, the report shows..
Charges have already been made by Sen. Frank Moss (D-Utah)I
that the tobacco industry is attempting to circumvent the ban on
cigarette advertising by pushing the small cigar.

BAYLOR'S UNIVERSITY'S TRUSTEES have asked the
school's president to restrict speakers on the campus.

The president assured the trustees that the Baptist university
would provide no platform for such speakers.

WASHINGTON M- Infla-
tion shoved the cost of living
upward in January for the
second month following the
price - wage freeze, but the
price push was less painful
than December's.
The Labor Department report-
ed that consumer prices increas-
ed 0.1 per cent in January, a
month when they usually decline.
When adjusted for such seasonal
trends, the rise was at a rate of
0.3 per cent or 3.6 per cent a
year.
This encouraged White House
economists who, a month ago, had
forecast a repeat of December's
0.4 per cent increase, or worse.
They long have predicted a Phase
2 bulge lasting several months.
The 3.6 per cent annual rate
compared with less than 2 per
cent during the freeze and 4.1
per cent in the six months before

The 0.3 per cent inflation took
3 cents out of every $10 bill. -It

up to 123.2 per cent of the 1967
average, meaning that it now

elsewhere, amounted to 1.5 r
cent.e
New, car prices jumped 1.6 per

fect, but used car prices oMllowed
the usual downward seasonal pat-
tern by declining 1.8 per cent.
The food price index as a whole
declined 0.2 per cent in January
despite the contrary movement of
meats and dairy products.
This was an important shift in
trend for family budgets. Food
prices had risen 0.7 per cent in
each of the two preceding months.
Curiously, the reversal was large-
ly attributable to two foods which
are exempt from price control,
eggs and fresh vegetables.

PARIS (A) - The Vietnam
peace talks, suspended for a
week by the United States, re-
sume today under the shadow
of the U.S. - Chinese summit
meeting in Peking.
Despite disclaimers by both
U. S. and Chinese officials that
the Vietnam war can be moved
toward settlement in Peking,
observers here assumed that the
subject would come up in some
form and the discussions be-

tween President Nixon and Pre-
mier Chou En-lai might have a.
major influence on the con-
flict.

that the war might be settled

China has repeatedly voiced
support for North Vietnam's
peace plan: It calls for total
U. S. withdrawal from South
Vietnam by a fixed time limit,
repatriation of prisoners and

The United States and South
Vietnam, in their pekce plan,
promise U.S. withdrawal within
six months of an agreement. It
also calls for new presidential
elections with Thieu resigning a
month before.
Today's 145th session of the

protest.
