(AP Wlrephoto) NEW5 BRIEF MEW YORK (AP) — Spyros P. Skouras, the motion picture executive who began as a hotel busboy, was honored Tuesday night on his 75th birthday in the chandeliered and candlelighted elegance of the Waldorf-Astoria's grand ballroom. The board chairman of 20th Century Fox, who after his stint as a bellboy in St. Louis organized a chain of theaters there and began his climb in the movie industry, blew out the candles on a four-tiered pink cake and the guests sang "Happy Birthday. '' The $100-a-plate dinner attended by 1,700 also launched; furd raising for the Skouras ; Center for the CYeativc Arts to be built at Hellenic College, Brooklinc, Mass.

(AP) — The Illinois House Revenue Committee heard testimony Tuesday on state money needs and a possible income tax. Joseph Meek, president, of the Illinois Retail Merchants Association, said the state should tighten its belt and squeeze all it can from existing taxes before considering additional levies. If necessary, Meed added, his group would support a slate income tax accompanied by a sales tax reduction. The committee, which has before it an income tax plan offered by Rep. Clyde Clioate of Anna, Democratic minority leader, took no action. Maurice Scott, executive vice president of the Taxpayers Federation of Illinois, said his organization would support a uniform rate income tax. Scott estimated the state needs $140 million to meet a deficit in the current biennium and will require a minimum of $800 million in new money during the next two years. Gordon C. Adlcr, spokesman for the Illinois Agricultural Association, advocated changing the Constitution to abolish property taxes. Preston Peden, representing the Chicago Association of Commerce and Industry, told the committee there should be a three per cent flat rate income tax on corporations and individuals to correct "injustices of the property tax." Gov. Richard B. Ogilvie is withholding his revenue proposals until a special commission named by former Gov. Samuel Shapiro makes a report. Choate has proposed a two per cent income tax on individuals with a $600 exemption for each dependent, and a five per cent levy on corporations. His plan also calls for lowering the overall sales tax from five to four per cent, eliminating the existing corporate franchise tax and suspending collec- I tion of personal property taxes. I gratulations. 'iov. Nelson A. Rockefeller said that Skouras is "the living example of an old Greek prov- eili that tells us. 'The old age of an eagle is better than the youth of a sparrow'."
