' Bl ' jt1 " 1 de£ ense under a 20-year treaty with Eyypt has been threatened by bills before parliament. Egypt also is reported lo want exclusive control of the farm-rich Sudan <B>. Legislative action voiding the treaties is expected when parliament meets next Monday.- Britain* has said she would not recognize abrogation of the pacts, which let her keep troops in Egypt and provide for joint Anglo-Egyptian control of the Sudan. £ Informants said the government 'has completed blueprints of measures aimed at forcing British forces from the strategic .waterway. These sources said the moves—still officially secret-would include: 1. Declaring British troops on Egyptian soil "enemy forces." 2. Ordering non - cooperation with the British. This would cut off their drinking water, fresh food and employment ol Egyptian labor. 3. Cancellation of all British British privileges such as Ihe right of Britons in the Suez area to be lri«l by British courts, British military Jurisdiction over British forces, exemption from duty of goods bound for the British garrison and Ibe use of "military ports" in the area. Meanwhile, the interior ministry banned public demonstrations throughout Egypt after anti-foreign Shortages to Delay Gas Service Here Arkansas-Missouri Power Company, which previously [ planned to complete construction of a natural gas system here by the current heating season, announced today that the fuel will not tie available for use in this area this winter An "extreme shortage" of steel* pipe, and ottier critical materials caused by the Korean war and the national defense program was given as the,reason. Ark-Mo president Charles Czes- cliin said it now appears "that the major part of the gas system will be in operation in 1952, unless the war situation becomes more critical." The company lias completed most of the distribution system in Blytheville but the steel shortage has curtailed work on the transmission sys- tern that will bring gas here from rioting which followed its demand that parliament nullify the alliances with Britain. The ministry said It Issued the ban because the "numerous and serious questions" before the gov- - ....,„,,.,- iment demanded its "exclusive" | east Arkansas and Southeast Mis- the Texas Eastern Gas Transmission Corp. line near Campbell. Mo. To Serve 18 Areas In line to get natural gas service when pipe becomes available are 17 other (owns and cities in North- Ltention. The Cairo press interpreted a warning by U. S. Secretary of State Dean Acheson that Egypt should not denounce the treaties unilaterally as support for Britain. "\Ve must remember that in our struggle to get rid of-the British^ alliance," said the pro-govcmmep.'i paper Af Balach, "we shall encoui:- , ter the combined opposition of Britain, the United States' and France." Iraq Asks'New British Pact Move May Be Link With Suez Dispute 1.ONDON, Oct. 12. (AP)—Another Middle East country, oil rich Iraq, Is seeking to revise its treaty of al- jliance with Britain, the Foreign v9|iffice said today. ""' Britain now has two air bases in Iraq under the terms of a 25-year treaty. The first move for revision was made by Prime Minister Nuri Al said of Iraq during a visit here Inst month, the spokesman said. But the first news of it was given out officially in Baghdad yesterday without advance warning to Britain. Some British officials linked the Iraq announcement to Egypt's move to void the 1036 Anglo-Egyptian treaty of alliance. Nuri. these British officials said, probably felt that it was time to let the Iraqi people know that their government, too. wanted a different relationship with Britain. souri. More than $250,000 has been invested by the utility to date in its natural gas system. An ordinance granting Ark-Mo a franchise to set lip a natural gas system here was passed by the City this' ordinance provides for delays in laying the pipelines. Tlie franchise stated that laying of. pipelines, including transmission lines, was to begin within 12 months after it. was granted. Section 11 provides, however,, that if the laying of pipelines "has been delayed due to the grantee's inability to secure necessary pipe or other materials . . . the pcriorj alfowed . . . shall be automatically extended for an additional period of six months " It further provides that "the City Council may at the end of the six months extension give the grantee additional time in which to begin construction If the Council UN Urges Iran to Talk NEW YORK.

(IP) — A S5.750,000,COO tax increase which among other things would boost Die levy 0:1 most individual incomes by about 11 fi per cent was approved yesterday by a Senate-House coil- lereme committee. The measure—Die nation's second largest revenue bill -is scheduled for House action next Tuesday. It then will go to the Senate. Ap- prci-a! by both is anticipated. In addition to the income tax rise—effective Nov. 1—the bill calls for sharp increases in the excise taxes on whisky, beer, wine, cigarettes, gasoline, automobiles and a number of other articles. Corporation taxes are jumped by upward of $2,300.000,000, retroactive to last April 1.

The bill provides only a little more than liiilf the $10,000,000,000 additional income which President Truman said reiircsents the government's minimum needs. Tax-Load Is a Record With enactment of this bill, the lax load will have been increased some $15,575,000.000 since the start of tlie Korean War. A record-breaking 56,100,000,000 increase went on the statute books in September, 1950- a $3,900,000,000 excess profits tax act in January, 1951. The individual Income tax increases arc integrated Into the regular bracket rates. As a result of rounding off the figures to produce even numbers in the rates, the increase for mast taxpayers actually varies from ii',-i per cent to about 12 per cent.
