GRAND RAPIDS (P) - Jane
Hart, wife of the state's senior
U.S. senator, Philip Hart, says
she will make no more payments
on her income tax as a protest
against the war in Vietnam.
In a copyrighted story from
thier Washington Bureau, Booth
newspapers reported yesterday
that Hart wrote the Internal Re-
venue Service May 10 sying
she is refusing to make any
more income tax payments.
Hart, heir to a Detroit manu-
facturing fortune, said she fail-
ed to include a check for $6,200

in estimated tax payments when
she made her quarterly filing on
her estimated taxes.
In writing the IRS, Hart said
she is "ready to accept a n y
sanctions that apply."
She said she put the money
in a special bank account in-
stead of paying it to the IRS.
"I cannot contribute one more
dollar toward the purchase of
more bombs and bullets." s h e
wrote.
"As a citizen, I feel the kind
of desperation that decent Ger-
mans must have felt in the

'30s. I can't be a party to any
more of this and still feel like
an honest person."
Senator Hart said he and his
wife are in "total agreement"
on the war, but said he opposes
nonpayment of taxes as a means
of protest.
"I respect her decision a I -
though I don't agree with i ,
he added.
Hart said she made her decis-
ion, May 8, the sight President
Nixon announced histdecision ts
mine North Vietnamese harbo's.
"I am convinced that In Viet-
nam, we are killing innocent
people without cause and my
conscience just wi not allow me
to quietly accept that. There
is no vital American titerest to
he served by killing inure people
and churning up more cuntry-
side with bomb craters."
Ms. Hart long has been active
in the antiwar movement. She
was among 185 persons arrest-
ed at a 1969 peace service in the
Pentagon.
Those convictions were over-
turned by a federal appellate
court.
