Senate Agrees To Eliminate
Federal Tax on Travel, Calls

agreed yesterday, to do away
with the federal taxes on travel,
telegrams and telephone calls, but
the House may balk.
i, Some Senators also sought -to
attach to a bill under debate pro-
visions for closing what they term
tax law loopholes.
Others were looking for a way
to use the bill to get the na-
tional highway program out of a
financial fix.
But for hours most of the action
was in Senatorial vocal cords.
The struggle with the particular
bill before the Senate is an an-
nual event. The main purpose of
the measure is to continue various

Rates May Fall
Unless Congress does that be-
fore July 1, the rates would fall
back to the pre-Korean War
levels and the government would
be out of pocket some three bil-
lion dollars a year.
Even with the deadline coming
on, and with Democratic leader
Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas
threatening to force 'round-the-
clock sessions in order to get ac-
tion, the Senate showed little
inclination to hurry.
Finally Johnson got together
with a band of Democrats who
were pushing amendments aimed
at closing what they considered
loopholes through which $2,350,-
000,000 a year slips away from
the Treasury.
Debate Restricted
The result was an agreement to
restrict debate on the bill and all
The Senate accepted it unani-
mously. Johnson said "we will at-
tempt to complete action on the
bill tonight."
At least eight amendments were
awaiting action at that point.
One proposed by Sen. Eugene
J. McCarthy (D-Minn.) would
eliminate the major benefits of a
stock dividend credit enacted in
Has Two Choices
The Senate has a choice of two
approaches for meeting a pros-
pective deficit in the highway
fund and heading off a gradual
shutdown of contract letting.
A Democrat, Sen. Richard L.
Neuberger of Oregon, proposed an
amendment that would conply
with President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower's desires.
It proposed to boost the federal
gasoline tax from 3 to 4 cents
a gallon and put the $840,000,000
a year in expected revenue in the
highway fund.

Governor Leroy Collins of Flori-

their work is so important.

MSU To Meet
Labor Payroll
State University can meet a labor
payroll today, but must have state
cash for a $2,039,000 faculty pay-
roll due next Tuesday, a university
vice-president said yesterday.
Philip J; May said receipt of
summer school tuition fees will
take care of the labor payroll.
He added that if state funds are
not received in time to cover the

The., second method, suggested
by Sen. Albert Gore (D-Tenn.),
was to take nearly a billion dol-
lars a year of taxes on cars,
trucks, buses, parts and lubricat-
ing oil out of the general revenues
of the Treasury and put it into
the highway fund.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
has frowned on that idea, saying
it would deprive the Treasury of
money neded for other essential
The travel and communications
amendments, recommended by the
finance committee, were put into
the bill by voice vote.
One would end on August 1 the
10 per cent tax passengers pay on
train, plane and bus tickets. This
would cost 235 million dollars an-
nually in revenue.
The other would wipe out on
July 1, 1960, the 10 per cent com-
munications levy at a cost of 735
millions a year.

awaiting a verdict after a justice

From Wife
nor Earl Long, battling for free-
dom from a state mental hospital,
yesterday filed a court suit asking
separation from his wife.
The suit, filed by attorney J. B.
Nesom, charged cruelty, deser-

Mrs. Long twice signed papers
committing the governor to psy-
chiatric wards at Galveston,
Texas, and Mandeville, La.
Mrs. Long Gone
Mrs. Long, who filed the appli-
cation asking the governor's con-
finement to the southeast Louisi-
ana (mental) hospital last week,
slipped out of the state Tuesday
night for parts unknown.
The 63-year-old governor goes
into court at Covington, La., to-
day at 10 a.m., (CST) asking re-!
lease from the hospital on grounds

Mrs. Long was part of the fam-
ily faction that asked commit-
ment of the governor to the men-
tal hospital in Galveston May 30.
Long contended he was forcibly
removed from his mansion at
Baton Rouge for the plane trip to
Galveston, and she petitioned a
court last week to confine the
governor to Mandeville.
