Nixon, in a public report ex-
pected in about two weeks, plans
to suggest moves to counter the
Red threat. Other reports will go
to President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower, the State- Department, and

Already Marked Out
The proposed shifts Nixon al-
ready marked out probably will
provide for:
1) A colder policy toward dicta-
torships, but without United
States intervention in domestic
affairs. Nixon is understood to
feel that seeming United States
friendliness to past and present
caudillos has become a ball and
chain on United States policy.
Diplomacy Shakeup.
2) A shakeup in United States
diplomacy. This would be aimed
at getting United States diplomats'
into closer contact with the people
who are going to have a big part
in the future in Latin America's
growing social and economic up-
heaval. The moves would be aimed
at university students and pro-
fessors, labor leaders, newspaper
and radio people.

Excise Tax
Cuts Seen t
leaders were leaning strongly yes-
terday toward limiting tax cuts at
phis session of Congress to select-,
ed excise levies.
On the basis of current think-
ing among top Democratic policy
makers, reductions in individual
and corporation income taxes are'
regarded as inadvisable at a time
when the government's books
show more and more red ink. r
None Male Yet
No final tax decisions have been
made, however, and none are in
immediate prospect.
Whatever decisions result, they
will be made jointly by Secretary
of the Treasury Robert M. Ander-
son, House Speaker Sam Rayburn
(D-Texas), and Rep. Wilbur D.
Mills (D-Ark.), chairman of the
House Ways and Means Commit-
tee, which originates tax legisla-
A friendly accord exists between
Anderson and Rayburn not to

View Cuts Best
Meanwhile, House leaders are
known to hold the view that care-
fully designed cuts in some federal
excise taxes would be the most
effective tax action at this time.
They would be applied chiefly
to transportation, automobile and
possibly communication excises,
with the reduction perhaps spaced
gradually over two or three years.
Whatever action is taken possi-
bly will come when the House
Ways and Means Committee
moves to extend or revise a num-
ber of excises and the corporation
income tax rate before they lapse
automatically June 30.
