Movie Ticket
Tax Repeal
Suggests Overall

WASHINGTON -- () - Presi-
dent Eisenhower yesterday vetoed
a bill to repeal the 20 per cent
federal tax on movie tickets, but
promised to ask Congress for a re-
duction in the admissions levy next
* * *
THE President's action blasted
the hopes of film industry officials
who had contended that if the
movie tax were allowed to die-as
approved by Congress-it would
save about 5,000 theaters a year
from going out of business.
Movie spokesmen generally

The President's veto narked the
first time he has refused to ap-
prove a major piece of legislation.
Declaring that the repeal mea-

at least 100 million dollars a year,
Eisenhower said in "memorandum
of disapproval";
"WE CANNOT afford the loss of
revenue, and it is unfair to single
out one industry for tax relief at
this time."
The President also noted that
even if he signed the repeal bill
into law, many movie patrons gen-
erally would not benefit through
lower admission prices through the
tax cut-off.
Many theater executives had al-
ready indicated they planned to
hike admission prices to the pres-
ent admission-plus-tax level - if
Eisenhower signed the bill. They
said this would save them from

100 Allied POWs
Ninety GIs Scheduled for Release;
Freed Americans Appear Healthy

In a smooth operation that clicked along well ahead of schedule,
the Communists yesterday handed over 100 Allied Prisoners of war,
including 25 Americans and 25 British, in 24 minutes.
The other 50 were South Koreans.
THEY WERE the vanguard of 400 prisoners promised in today's
return, including 90 Americans, 25 British, 35 Turks, 12 Filipinos, 7
Ifolombians and 250 Sduth Koreans.
The Americans and British appeared to be in good shape, in

Clark expressed neither exal-

nor much beyond a glimmer of
hope for the recovery of all Al-
lied prisoners who fell into en-
emy hands during the 37-month
Korean War.
He said he had been "directed"
to get and sign an armistice. As
for POW's he expressed belief that
the Reds hold 2,000 or 3.000 more
Americans and "thousands upon
thousands" more South Koreans
than the Communists agreed to ex-
change under the truce terms.
SPEAKING with disciplined
military restraint, the 57-year-old
veteran of both world wars had
this to say about any renewal of

imposed upon the United Nations

This was a reference to high-
evel restrictions designed to pre-

oping into World War III. Among
other things, Allied planes were
barred from striking at enemy
bases across the Korean border in
Chinese Manchuria and Allied
warships were not used to block-
ade Red China.
