Waihburn Change in Tax Picture May Alter Dierks' Plan for Mill at Broken Bow | From an industry source The Istnr has received the following re- Jport on new developments in the I plan of Qierks Forests. Inc., to I bkild a newsprint mill in south- 1 ecist Oklahoma: 4 Dierks Forests, Inc., whose proposal for the erection o£ a newsprint mill in the Arkansas- Oklahoma area was broughNo the attention of members of SNPA in newsprint bulletin 1677-Special, may find themselves prevented by ' high tax assessments from locat- , ing in what is said to be the site of their choice — a triangular- t ped 2,500 acres nestled where ._ Mountain Fork and Little rivers converge, 5V4 miles southeast of Broken Bow and approximately 15 miles east of Idabel In McCurtain County, Oklahoma. County tax figures show that Dierks paid $90,000 of McCurtain's total collections of $480,000 last year. Taxes were raised four months ago and Dierks paid $157,000 under protest — an increase of $67,000 on the 549,000 a$es of land owned -by them in the county. A quiet but energetic campaign being conducted' by civic leaders of the Broken Bow and Idabel communities for the location of the mill in McCurtain County was given a boost November 29 at a public meeting held in Broken Bow. Both principal speakers, Oscar Monrad, vice-president of Oklahoma Industries, Inc., and H«3coe H. Sears, former federal iffid bank appraiser and president of the Oklahoma City real estate board, pointed out inequalities found in McCurtain County lane valuation and assessment, which are the basis of Dierks' protest. Sears said that during pas several months, at the request o: Dierks Forests, Inc., he had checked and appraised approxi mately 400,000 acres of Dierks land in McCurtain and 200,000 £j|res owned by others. Monrad using figures obtained by Sears in his survey, pointed out tha Dierks' holdings were assessed a from 75 to 125 per cent of value while other land was assessed a irom 10 to 15 per cent. He said that at the time of the recen increase of $67,000 in the assess ment, only minor increases were made on other land. Sears said h discovered that in one community E 'y 20 per cent of the owners o e sections of land were paying any taxes at all. ' • In defense of the county's raise in Dierk's taxes, James Nease, county attorney-elect, circularized a comparison of Dierks' tax liability in Oklahoma and in Arkansas, where the firm also has large holdings of timberland, in an effort to show the company's tax liabilities are in line in McCurtain 56TH YEAR: VOL. 56 — NO. 53 Star Sfar of Hop* 1*W t ..— ...

The attempt Broken Bow with county _ equalization hoard members in an attempt to settle out of court the Dierks' protest $67,000 .._ was unsuccessful. Following the meeting, spokesmen for the group said they would continue their effort to get the mill located in McCurtain County and that no 4fr>ne would be left unturned to effect a compromise on the tax assessment. Dierks' plans for the proposed mill call for an initial investment of $12,000,000, which the company itself, proposes to finance without asking- publishers to subscribe for stock. With a production goal of 60,000 tons of newsprint annually, they would probably boost considerably this minimum estimat- iW investment. 1 w lt would take two years for the mill to get iiitB operation, officials of the company say. Start of construction hinges on Dierks' securing enough newsprint contacts to cover "full .production.

The President told hts news conference the budget deficit makes it necessary for him to make such request. He said that when you have tho government going into the red federal income must be kept up. Under present law corporation tax rates are scheduled to gc down from 52 per cent to 47 per cent t-n April 1. • That would mean an-estimated loss of about two billion dollars - in revenue.

Changes Position, May Swap WASHINGTON (UP)— The "United States today indicated that it might after all consider under certain circumstances a Red Chinese offer to swap Chinese schol- t.rs here for Americans held in China. State Department Spokesman Lincoln White said U.S. consideration of any such offer "would depend entirely on the nature of the offer and the circumstances as of lhat moment." "Our concern here is to get not only the military personnel out cf jail in China but the American civilians out of jsil in Communist China" White said. "Our concern is to get our people safely home. ' White made the comment in answer to a question as to whether a Chinese Communist offer to exchange Americans in China or Chinese scholars here would be closely studied should one be forthcoming. The State Department spokesman emphasicd that Red China so far has neither formally nor informally made any actual offer to exchange Americans in China for 35 Chinese students who have been denied permission to leave this country.
