Washburn Have you seen this man? the labor tax Henry Haynes advises that Hope Kiwanis Club has received an appeal from the Slillwater (Okla.) club to help locate a missing person.

We are indebted to the Arkansas Democrat for a detailed explanation of how the 3 per cent state sales tax is extended against labor. The Democrat reported'WeHnesday as follows: "In 1971 the state sales tax law was amended so that certain labor was taxable. "The amendment to statute 84-1903 allows tax on service of (or) alteration, addition, cleaning, retmishing, replacement and repair of motor vehicles, aircraft, farm machinery and implements, motors of all kinds, tires and batteries, boats, electrical appliances and devices, furniture, rugs, upholstery, household appliances, television and radio, jewelry, watches and clocks, engineering instruments, medical and surgical instruments, machinery of all kinds, bicycles, office machines arid equipment, shoes, tin and sheetmetal, mechanical tools and shop equipment." "The amendment specifically excludes coin-operated car washes from the tax." Policeman shot —for third time DETROIT (AP) — Gregory Ciaglo left a monastery six years ago to join the Detroit Police Department. He wanted to help people. Now he's in serious condition after being shot for the third time. "He had a deep faith that there was a job to be done there," said his sister, Janice Gilbeau. "He did not always want to be a policeman. "After he came out of the Marine Corps, he spent a year in a monastery and then decided to join the department to help people." Police say Ciaglo, 28, was shot in the stomach with his own handgun on Tuesday by a driver he was arresting foi not having a license or registration. Ciaglo's years with the department have been stormy. He had a serious dispute with his fellow officers and there were the three shootings. He quit the department in 1970 because of pressure by fellow officers after he refused to sign a report that didn't include details of a beating his partners allegedly administered to a man.

PRICE ioc Senate committee is ready to join Nixon tapes battle WASHINGTON (AP) - A Senate committee is ready to join the special Watergate prosecutor and a House subcommittee in efforts to expand access to former President Richard M. Nixon's tapes and documents. The Senate Government Operations Committee was scheduled to vote today on a resolution calling on President Ford to make public all parts of the tapes dealing with Watergate. And the committee is also considering action on a bill sponsored by Sen. Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y., which would make all the papers of future presidents the property of the government. In the House, Rep. Tom Steed, D-Okla., said on Tuesday his House appropriations subcommittee will urge that none of the tapes and papers be moved from Washington "until an arrangement is worked out to assure they will be made available to the public." Jaworski, meanwhile, sent the White House a list of tapes and documents he wants for various Watergate prosecutions. And a White House source said that at the same time Jaworski aides are trying to reach a compromise on access to the materials with Nixon's lawyer, Herbert J. Miller. Jaworski had not been consulted on the agreement, announced Sept. 8, for safekeeping of Nixon's tapes and papers. The agreement was worked out by Benton L. Becker, a Washington lawyer representing Ford, and Miller. Under that agreement the materials would be safeguarded in a vault near Nixon's San Clemente home which could be opened only by use of two keys. Nixon would have one key, and Arthur Sampson, head of the General Services Administration, would have the other. The agreement calls on Nixon to make materials available- if subpoenaed, but he could challenge any subpoena in court. The materials have not left the White House yet, but Ford has stopped short of saying they will remain there until Jaworski's staff obtains everything it needs. The Senate resolution, which would not have the force of lawn was suggested by Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana. It states that, because it is now uncertain whether the public will be allowed access to the tapes, Ford should make them available. "It calls upon President Ford to assure the American people that in the national interest they will be provided all the facts of Watergate ...," Mansfield said. The House subcommittee has deleted funds for Nixon's transition which had been intended for construction of the vault for the papers and tapes.

Siamese twins survive surgery PHILADELPHIA (AP) Separated by surgery which took 6M: hours, Siamese twin girls from the Dominican Republic slept in separate cribs for the first time in their 13 months of life. "I know of no reason why they won't live," Dr. C. Everett Koop said after the long operation carried out on Wednesday by 23 surgeons and nurses at Children's Hospital. "They were two healthy little girls together. We have every reason to believe they'll be two healthy little girls apart," said Koop, who headed the surgical team. He said not only are both girls expected to live, but that they should lead very normal lives and even bear their own children. Clara and Altagracia Rodriguez, who had been joined since birth at the pelvis and abdomen, were given their own complete sets of internal organs during the surgical operation. In the initial recovery stage, Clara and Altagracia were placed in two beds, but they will be treated in the same bed later to prevent possible psychological trauma resulting from separation after living as one being up until now, hospital spokesman Shirley Bonnem said. She said the tots were doing "extremely well." Mrs. Farida Rodriguez and her twins came here 11 days ago from a farm outside Santo Domingo. When her daughters were born on Aug. 12, 1973, Mrs. Rodriguez said she was told they would die. Other doctors told her they would live into adulthood but could never be separated. But Mrs. Rodriguez's cousin worked for an American woman in Puerto Rico, who told her sister in Pennsylvania about the Siamese twins. Dianna Zimnoch of Warrington, Pa., arranged for the operation and her church raised the funds. Mrs. Rodriguez, whose husband remained at home, has three other children. The hospital said medical case histories show only 24 successful Siamese twin separations, with the first recorded in 1600. POW denies being disloyal CLARK AIR BASE, Philippines (AP) — Emmet James Kay, the last known American prisoner of war in Indochina, said today that he made statements in favor of the Communist Pathet Lao because he was upset about the Watergate scandal. "I am a loyal American," the 47-year-old commercial pilot told a news conference. "... I must admit I was quite upset during the Watergate days about the United States. "My statements were aimed at making peace. I tried to promote peace." Kay was freed Wednesday in Vientiane, the Laotian capital, after 16 months in captivity, and flown with his wife to Clark Air Base for a medical checkup. An Air Force doctor said he had "no acute medical problems." Kay said he would take the weekly medical evacd uation flight Saturday to his home in Hawaii, where his two teen-age childien are waiting. The flier denied statements attributed to him by a French newsman who interviewed him in Sam Neua. He was quoted assaying he had flown for the Central Intelligence Agency, had been deceived about his mission, and that the Americans should have been; tried for war crimes in Indochina just as the Nazis were; tried after World War II. Kay admitted meeting the newsman but said the quotations attributed to him "were way out." "I think someone was mixed up," he said. "On that, I denounce it. It is an outright lie. "I am a loyal American. I am not a CIA agent. I was a pilot for USAID (the U.S. Agency for International Development ) and was not involved in any diplomatic or political affairs." Kay was downed in northern Laos while flying for Continental Air Services, a charter line working for the U.S. government. Fifi heading for a landfall MIAMI (AP) - Torrential rains from Hurricane Fifi drenched the mountainous coast of Honduras today as the big storm and its sustained winds of 110 miles per hour headed for a landfall in Central America. Portions of Costa Rica, Guatemala and Belize were also being pounded by the heavy rains. Flooding streams washed out roads and bridges in parts of Honduras. Air traf- fic in both Honduras and Costa Rica was at a standstill. The season's third hurricane was expected to make landfall late today near the border of Guatemala and Belize, formerly British Honduras. Near dawn this morning, forecasters said Fifi was located 80 miles east of Puerto Barrios, Guatemala. Gales from the hurricane extended out 150 miles from the center. WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of Slate Henry A. Kissinger said today he expects to reach an understanding with the Soviet Union allowing freer emigration from that nation. But, Kissinger said, freedom of emigration should not be a precondition for stronger economic ties with the Soviets. Such a policy might revive the cold war atmosphere of postwar years, he said. Kissinger gave his views in a foreign policy statement before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee which is conducling hearings on the policy of detente with Communist countries. Kissinger also defended existing agreements with the Soviet Union on the limitations of stralegic nuclear weapons and declared the goal of future Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT) is to achieve "essential equivalence" in the strategic forces of the two superpowers, "We are now moving toward an understanding (with the Soviet Union) that should significantly diminish the obstacles to emigration and ease the hardship of prospective emigrants," Kissinger said. He said those who demand "internal changes (in the Soviet Union) must be the precondition for the pursuit of a relaxation of tensions with the Soviet Union" are wrong. "Our view is different. We shall insist on responsible international behavior by the Soviet Union and use it as the pri- mary index of our relationship ... But we cannot demand that the Soviet Union, in effect, suddenly reverse five decades of Soviet, and centuries of Russian history. Such an attempt would be futile and at the same lime hazard all that has already been achieved ... A renewal of Ihe cold war will hardly encourage the Soviet Union lo change its emigralion policies or adopt a more ben- evolenl atlilude lowards dis- senl," Kissinger said. On SALT negotiations, Kissinger said thai Ihe limilation on MIRWS (multiple independently targeted warheads) will be "an essential component of the next phase of the SALT negotiations" which began in Geneva Wednesday. He said thai lo determine "essenlial equivolence" of strategic capabilities will be a mosl difficull lask primarily because U.S. and Soviet forces "are different from each other ... they are difficult to compare, "We shall have to decide whether to insist on equiva- lance in every category or whether to permit Irade-offs in which an advantage in one cal- egory compensates for a disadvantage in another."

Avoid simplistic policies: Kennedy SECRETARY OF STATE Henry Kissinger is adept at many things, including fielding questions at press conferences. Kissinger, Russians to discuss emigration WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., said today that the United Stales must avoid a scorched earth policy that fights only inflation but ignores the threat of a deep recession. He told 180 delegates to a mini-summit conference on inflation that the nation needs to avoid "simplistic policies masquerading under simplistic slogans like 'Old Time Religion.'" "The Old Time Religion may be an appealing road to follow," the senator said, "but it is also the road to old time recessions and depressions, and that is a road the nation neither has lo take nor ought to take in the months and years ahead." Kennedy was among the opening speakers at the two- day session in the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare that brought the leaders of scores of major national organizations together. Ticking off examples of how inflation has already decreased the quality of life in America, Kennedy noted that costs have risen 20 per cent higher for the poor than for other citizens. He warned that the administration's anti-inflation policies "will create more serious unemployment in the future — and it is the aged, the unskilled, the youth and the minority groups who will be the hardest hit." HEW Secretary Caspar W. Weinberger assured the dele- gales that "absolutely no preconceived outcomes have been adopted prior to the conference." But the president of the nation's largest teacher organization expressed doubts about that, and warned that crime, welfare and unemployment would rise if "education is kept hostage" by anti-inflationary federal budget cuts. James A. Harris, head of the National Education Association representing 1.5 million classroom teachers, was among 180 delegates to a t'vo-day, economic mini-summit conference at the Department of Health, Education and Welfare. A prelude to the national summit conference Sept. 27-28, the gathering was billed by HEW as an attempt to elicit "suggestions on the way hi which inflation should be attacked and the appropriate governmental and private sector economic policies to be followed." But Harris, reflecting concerns of many organizations with a stake in the Jill-billion HEW budget, expressed suspicion that the Ford administration had already decided on an anti-inflationary strategy. "Then when we get hit where it hurts, we're all supposed to keep our mouths shut because, after all, we 'helped shape' the policy," Harris said. Terrorists receive no comfort from groups DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Both the Palestinian leadership and the Syrian government sought today to disassociate the guerrilla movement from the Japanese Red Army terrorists who held 11 persons hostage in the French Embassy in the Netherlands. The Paris office of the Palestine Liberation Organization said the PLO "never asked the Syrian authorities to hand over the three men and had nothing to do with The Hague affair." The Syrian government earlier backed off from an announcement that the terrorists were in PLO custody for the time being. Observers felt the Syrian and PLO moves were aimed at keeping the Palestinian cause from being hurt at a time when the Palestinians are campaigning for U.N. recognition as a liberation movement. The French Boeing 707 airliner which carried the terrorists to Damascus arrived safely back at Amsterdam airport, and the three crew members were to be received by Queen Juliana in recognition of their service. The plane carried the three terrorists and a fourth they got freed from a French jail to Damascus on Wednesday. The Syrian government at first said the four would remain in PLO custody until they decided where they wanted to go next. But late Wednesday a government statement said the terrorists "were delivered with their weapons and other belongings to the competent Syrian security authorities." There was no word on where they were being held or what country might accept them. Observers believed the government might be trying to keep the leaders of the Palestinian guerrilla movement from incurring the anger of the French, Dutch and Japanese governments at a time when the Palestinians are campaigning for the United Nations General Assembly to recognize them as a liberation movement instead of a group of refugee organizations. Idaho tribe making ^bloodless war' plans PAIL FACE, one might pun concerning Hachel Stallings' predicament. The three-) ear-old of Citrus Springs, Fla., may have heard those Prince Charming fairy tales, but in this seeing was not believing. BONNERS FERRY, Idaho (AP) — The Kootenai Indians are still making plans for a bloodless "war" with the United States while awaiting a Bureau of Indian Affairs response lo demands for immediate ireaty negoliations. A BIA spokesman said in Washington the agency's response will be sent before Ihe 67-mernber tribe's deadline of rmdmghl tonight. An Indian spokeswoman in the tribe headquarters here said a telegram was received Wednesday from BIA Commissioner Morris Thompson. "But it just said that they had received the resolution and would look into it, it mentioned no dale or anything else," she said. The tribe, which never has had a treaty with the United Slates and lacks a reservation, plans to set up four roadblocks and begin taxing vehicles, homes and businesses within a 1.6 million-acre area of Idaho and Montana which it says it owns. Legislation granting the tribe some land in trusl has passed the Senate and, the White House said, is likely to pass the House. Thompson was delegated the power by the White House early Wednesday to deal with the war threat, the BIA spokesman said. "The substalive matters raised by the tribe are not things that you can decide in 24 hours," he said. "The only thing that can be expected is that we will initiate action to find solutions to their problems." The spokeswoman said Indian officials met with local law enforcement and local government officials Wednesday to discuss war plans.
