r SATURDAY, JULY 27, 1963 THE INDIANAPOLIS STAR PAGE 5 3 Major Groups File Briefs For Sales Tax 1-65 Six-Lane Plan Gets Conditional U.S. OK Three major lobbying groups submitted their briefs in defense of the challenged 2 per cent state sales tax to the Indiana Supreme Court yesterday, moving the case another step closer to oral arguments and a decision. The briefs were submitted by the Indiana State Chamber of Commerce, Indiana Retail Council and Indiana State Teachers Association as friends of the court. THE NEXT step will be filing a reply brief by attorneys for Dallas Sells, Indiana State AFL - CIO president, wh o brought the action which resulted in a ruling by Judge John L. Niblack of Marion Circuit Court that the tax is unconstitutional. Governor Matthew E. Welsh appealed the decision. The chamber in its brief attacked Niblack's ruling that the General Assembly unconstitutionally delegated to the State Revenue Board the power to decide "breaking point" prices at which tax collections would increase in one-penny steps. It sited 14 units of state and local government which 2 Plead Guilty To Larceny Greenwood, Ind. (Spl.)

Authorities said the men are believed wanted for absence from" the Marine Corps base at Quantico, Va. have been delegated wide discretionary power of the legislature which has been upheld by the courts. THE. RETAIL Council's attorneys proposed that the court, if it reverses Niblack, should specify that the decision is not to be certified to the trial court's clerk until 20 days after the ruling. The court should also release the State Revenue Department immediately from the injunction against preparations for administering the tax, so it can be put in effect 20 days after the ruling, they argued. The ISTA counsel mention ed that the brunt of the loss in revenue which would result from throwing out the sales tax likely would fall on primary and secondary schools and asked the court to weigh this fact if it finds the act not fundamentally unconstitutional but merely ambiguous. Beech Grove Group Plans Budget Study The Beech Grove City Council will meet Aug. 5 to study the proposed 1964 budget, which calls for a 25-to-30 cent increase in the civil city tax rate. Mrs. Helen Dietz, clerk-treasurer, said the increase was predicted by the council to absorb an anticipated loss in revenue and to pay city employes a $180 annual across-the-board salary increase. She also said $2,500 is budgeted to pay for a special census. Assessed valuation in Beech Grove has dipped $900,000 from this year's tax base of $16,100,000, causing the anticipated $15,000 loss of revenue, Mrs. Dietz said. k f -" ft SPECIAL! 23" Muntz TV 13 UIIMT7 MUNI I.

(Star Photo) 46 Classes To Compete In All-Arabian Horse Show The state has received conditional Federal approval for building six instead of four lanes on Interstate 65 between 38th Street and 16th Street on the city's Northwest side, the State Highway Commission reported yesterday. The increased width will be allowed if the slate agrees that local and state government will build a downtown loop west ieg without Federal funds within five years after the interstate is built. CONSTRUCTION of 1-65 south of 38th Street is scheduled to be begun sometime before July, 1067, and probably is at least two years awav.

NATIONAL ORGANIZATION TO IMPROVE AND EXTEND THE USES OF CONCRETE A more than $1,000,000 slash in state aid may mean taxpayers in Perry Township face a $2 hike in their property tax rate, officials of the Metropolitan School District of Perry Township said yesterday.

(AP) Bobby Darin's physician said yesterday he wants the singer to return to California next week for extensive medica tests. The 27-year-old entertainer, who has been appearing at Freedomland in the Bronx, N.Y., collapsed twice this week from apparent fatigue. Dr. Marvin Levy said he ordered Darin to come to Beverly Hills either Sunday or Monday after a day or so of rest, with friends on Long Island. He said he may hospitalize the singer upon his arrival. Darin's wife, actress Sandra Dee, is with him in New York and plans to return to California with him, associates said. $62,000,000, would have to raise the present school tax levy of $5.49 by almost $2 to counteract the loss in state revenue, unless funds from other sources, such as revenue from the legally challenged sales tax is received. Perry Township is anticipating an enrollment of about 8,-200 pupils when school reconvenes in September. Of these, about 6,200 are transported an average of I y2 miles a day. Quashing Asked In Slaving Case Lebanon, Ind. (Spl.) A motion to quash the affidavit against Robert C. Wiles, 36 years old, Arcadia, bank cashier charged with murdering his wife, has been filed by his at torney in Boone Circuit Court. Wiles is accused of killing his wife, Dec. 3, 1962, in their Hamilton County home during his noon hour break. He claimed in his motion that the Boone County grand jury had no legal authority to amend the indictment against him which claimed he caused death with a pair of vise grips. THE ORIGINAL indictment was filed in Hamilton County by a Hamilton County grand jury. When the case was venued here, a grand jury in Boone amended the indictment to allege she died from a blow by vise grips, gun shots and a blow from a screw driver. Wiles also claims a separate count should have been filed against him concerning each alleged death instrument and that the indictment does not list what he is accused of doing as being illegal or felonious. Aug. 15 has been set for Wiles' arraignment.
