For instance, he said, the benefit would be only 80 cents a week to an individual in the low wage bracket with no dependents. But George's plan would be expensive to the government, he said, costing 4% billion dollars in revenue this year, and about eight billion in succeeding years. ^ The veteran southerner,- who is senior Democrat on the finance committee, propo-scs to boost the exemptions from the present $600 to $300 .Ibis year, and .to §1,000 for l!)3f> and thereafter. George contends the exemptions are. inadequate, pointing out they have not been raised since 1943. And he says the tax cut would counteract the present business downturn by increasing mass pur- chn.sing power. Meanwhile, it seemed clear the administration's tax strategy on Capitol Hill would be to let 912 million dollars of excise tax cuts voted by the House Wednesday slide through the Senate without a serious fight, and to concentrate on beating the income tax exemi}- tion increases. Thc . Senate Finance . Committee is to conduct hearings 'oh the excise measure next week. It will hear Secretary of the 'Treasury Humphrey's testimony . in opposition to the cuts Wednesday. Here's a suggested program on how to avoid the spring doldrums: Get lip your income tax figures promptly and file thc return early. Clean out thc garage, throw out the rubbish, hang up all the tools, make it look like a .brand new place. Re-sod thc lawn — somebody puts it down, but you keep it up. Put up a rambling-rose arbor, .fSwith posts-and wire, making sure the posts are vertical and the wire is stretched tight. Set up another post close to the porch and build a bird-feeding station . . . ' And I guarantee all this will leave you exhausted and wondering how spring can possibly last so long. !S NEW YORK W — Rear Adm.

ROME \ff> — PRemier Mario Scel- ba's shaky young government rock* ed today at the resignation of National Police Chief Tommaso Pavone after cov/rt testimony linking him with Italy's biggest postwar scandal — the mysterious death of high society party : girl Wilma Montesi. Resigning last night Payne in] a statement denied "indignantly and in the most categorical man-! ner" allegations implying that he had shielded — and received ;gifts from — one of the men 'prominent in the case. 'He said he would '.take': legal action to clear his name. British Wed Women 28 and Over By ROBERT -MUSEL LONDON (UP) — Dr. Maycj Wingate is worried about British! women — British men show a re* luctance to marry them if they are over 28. "British men like them young," said Dr, Wingate sadly, announcing suspension of the first experiment in planned marriage here, the Marriage Society^ ' 4 The Marriage Society has 1 church dignitaries and social workers or) its board of advisers, but all the weight of its , advice ^nd - prestige; hasn't been able to persuade Brit^ ish men that women over 28 can be ideal mates.

During the parliamentary debate, the Communists accused .the regime and Pavone in particular of trying to hush up the Montesi scandal. Pavone, whose job corresponded to that of the FBI head of the United States, said she was resigning to have the "liberty necessary to protect my person." Scelba appointed Minister without Portfolio Raftaele de Caro to head an investigation into the whole tangled case, in which many high persons have been named, including Piero Piecioni, son of Foreign Minister Attilio Piecioni. The nude body of the Montesi girl was found on the beach at Oslia, Rome's nearby Lido, last April. The police report said there was no reason to believe she hail died of anything other than accidental drowning. The police have stuck to that in spite of charges published recently in the one-man magazine Attualita • (Actuality) that the dark- haired Wilma was drugged at ah orgy at an exclusive • hunt club near Ostia and left for the Mediterranean tides to drown. The magazine named high political and social figures as members of the club, formerly the hunting lodge of Italy's royalty. The magazine's editor, Silvanp Muto, is now on trial in a Rome court on charges of spreading false and alarmist reports. Star defense witness Anna Marie Moneta Cqglio ha?- testified she suspects her ex-lover Ugo Montagna, a member of the hunt club who calls himself a marquis, knows something about the Montesi girl's death. She Montagna was a friend of the younger Piecioni, that the two had visited Pavone and that Montagna acquired an apartment in May last year for the police chief. She said she didn't know whether the alleged gift was connected-with the Montesi case. Pavone already has denied the Pavone story. ANGRY GROCER SAN FRANCISCO Wl — Grocer Glen Hotchkjns, 3C, determined not to be robbed for the third time las t night smacked a gunman in the face with a hoard, drove him from his downtown store, and pursued, him down the street with a meat cleaver. After a blocking chase, Hotchkins hurled the cleaver at the robber, but the handle couneed harmlessly off his back and he escaped.. YOUNG ARSONIST SEOUL O-' The prosecutor's office today dropped arson charges against Miss Ku Chil Sam, who ovei turned a Jamp and burned down hor homo. Miss Ku is 3 ycais 9W, "Maybe," said Dr. Wingate,,*' thi> we have made — in direct variance to what Dr. Kinsey discovered about American women. "From our discussions with some 10,000 to 12,000 British women we find that the sec urge begins to decline here as early as 40 or 45. This is arlier than the six decline in British men." Dr. Alfred Kinsey found that American men reach a sexual peak in their teen and are n the downgrade thereafter, but that American women maintain a strong sex drive into late middle age. Wingate said the Marriage Society was not suspending through lack of applicants. The trouble was that almost all the applications came from women. "Se simply couldn't find eligible men for the age categories of women who applied," he said. "From our experience I would say British men like their women to be about 10 years younger. If they marry women closer to their own age they tend to stray to younger mistresses." This seemed to imply that the British male, contrary to his reputation as a poor lover, is 'really an impulsive fellow with a roving eye for a pretty ankle, etc. "Not really," smiled the Scottish psychologist. "The Britaon isn't Nixon States Republican Case Tonight By JACK BELL and G. MILTON KELLY WASHINGTON (/P) — Vice President Nixon states the case for the Republican administration tonightj in a radio-television address while| £> family fight i4ges within the GOP over Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis?) and some of his investigative aides Yesterday McCarthy bitterly protested Army Department officials had attempted to "blackmail" his investigations subcommittee into dropping a probe of the Army. He made public a document that represented Secretary of the Army Robert T. Stevens as trying to divert the group's attention to a search for wrong doing in the Navy Air Force and Defense Department. Stevens and John G. Adams, the Army's general counsel retorted that such accusations were untrue. McCarthy had said Adams told him several months ago a report embarrassing to the subcommittee would be made public unless an investigation of the Army were called off. Before the day was over some Republicans/as well as Democrats in the Senate were demanding investigations to determine who is telling the truth in the crossfire of accusations. Nixon had been designated last Monday to deliver the party's reply to criticism by Adlai E. Stevenson, the 1952 Democratic presidential nominee. One of Stevenson's thrusts was a description of the GOP as "half McCarthy and half Eisenhower." • • : •• President Eisenhower had backed. Stevens when, after an earlier row with McCarthy, the secretary said he would protest Army witnesses against 'any "bause" at the.; hands of invest! gating committees.

"He just likes them young," and McCarthy came when Senate sources yesterday made public an Army report ,saying efforts were made to get special treatment for G. David Schine, an un paid consultant to McCarthy's sub committee, after Schine was inducted last November as a private. The report cited instances when McCarthy had allegedly exerted pressure .on Army Department officials and his subcommittee's chief counsel, Roy ; Cohn, allegedly had used threats. McCarthy's retort of "blackmail" was accompanied by memoranda he said came from the subcommittee files and depicked officials trying to sidetrack probes of Army matters. Nixon said he will "not dodge the issues" in tonight's speech, which will be carried at 10:30 p.m. EST over CBS television and radio networks and those NBC radio sta tions which carried Stevenson's ad dress a week ago. But Nixon kept his own counsel as to the exact strategy-,he will use. There was no advance text of his spe&ch. He left it open foi any revision deemed necessary up to .the moment of delivery. But he discussed his plans in a 45- minute conference yesterday with Eisenhower. The National Society for the Prevention of Blindness estimates that about 750,000 Americans now alive will become blind before they die. Husband, Wife Usually Have Different Ideas on Pleasure Trips-She Usually Wins BY HAL BOYLE ABOARD THE MAURETANIA AT SEA Wl— My idea of a plea sure cruise is pretty much like that of most married men-it's the journey between the dinner table and the nearest couch. And you make it on foot. Wives have different ideas of a pleasure cruise. They think you have t(> dress up and leave the house. They think a ship is in volved. For 14 years I satisfied my wife's yearning for an ocean cruise .by taking her on an annual vacaton voyage on the Staten Island ferry. A round trip cost us a dime apiece "Smell that bracing sea air:" I'd explain, coughing in the habor shore. "She the Statue of Loberty Look at that Manhattan skyline; You can't beat travel can you But it sure does make you appreciate home. Let's gq home."

When she inquired about Africa I said there was no point in sailing there as Tarzan had moved on to Hollywood, leav ing the place absolutely '. deserted except for a few literary lions who chased zebras by day and read the collected works of Ernesl Hemingway by moonlight. As Frances, like most wives never knows when to believe her husband, I got along pretty well- or thought I did. But this year, when I remarked it was abou! time to change a quarter and make the long voyage to Staten Island, I' ran into rebellion, "Don't be silly, Rover," saic Frances. "We are going to take an igday sunshine cruise to the West Indies and South America.'

Wiley Won't Open Foreign Policy Debate By HERB ALT8CHULU WASHINGTO NUH -T Chairman Wiley (R-Wis) of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said today he has no present intention* of opening up a new "great debate" in foreign policy as proposed by Adlai E, Stevenson. Stevenson, 1952 Democratic candidate for resident, called last Saturday for full discusion of ,the "new look" in foieign strategy outlined by Secretary of Stale Dulles in a New York speech last Jan. 12 Dulles said President Eisenhower and his top aides had shifted directions in cold war maneuvering against Communist forces with a decision "to depend primarily upon a great capacity to retaliate instantly by means and places of our own choosing," Stevenson called for full-scale discussions of this strategy along the lines of the lengthy public debate over the question of troops for Europe in. 1932, Wiley said Dulles has been in* vited to come before the Senate committee, perhaps next week, Stevenson said he was "con* fused" about the "massive retaliation" piogram outlined by Dujr }es, and ho questioned whether complete reliance on atomic weapons would pi event the United State from successful handling of local actions 'ike the Korean War. Asked for comment on Stevenson's statement, Wiley drew a small vial from his pocket and, vyaved it under his nose, < "This is perfume" he said J carry it around 90 I can smell it whenever'the Democrats start at? tacking."
