EDITOR'S NOTE: Stanley Johnson has been a member of the AP staff in Moscow for most of the past nine years. He has recently returned to New York. By STANLEY JOHNSON Soviet Premier Khrushchev and Chinese Communist chief Mao Tze-tung seem to be dipping their toes gingerly into the waters of reconciliation. There are indications from both Moscow and Peking that the lead- rs of the two Red giants want to bridge their ideological and political fissure which has rocked Jie Communist world. Signs of a thaw in the icy relations began to appear ten days ago. Among the latest developments 1. Mao Tze-tun called in the Soviet ambassador to China, Stepan V. Chervonenko, for their first serious talk. Pravda on Sunday gave big front-page play to the meeting. Wu Hsiu-chuan, who was publicly humiliated by Khrushchev at the East German Red party congress in Berlin, was present. Wu toured East European party congresses recently, attacking Yugoslavia and, by implication, Khrushchev. Also present was Communist Chinese Premier Chou En-lai and former ambassador to Moscow Liu Shao-chi. 2. On a slightly lower level in Moscow, Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko had the new Chinese ambassador, Pan Tzu-li, to lunch, obviously with Khrushchev's approval. This also was big news in Sunday's Pravda. It was evident both ambassadors had something of importance to report to their chiefs and also that they had had something of importance to say to their hosts. Khrushchev singled out Pan for ostentatious attention at a Moscow reception. He publicly pledged the eternal brotherhood of the Soviet Union and Communist China. Then Pravda printed a long editorial which, as the Chinese had done previously, deplored the publicity surrounding the dispute. It said the Soviet Communist party would meet privately with any fraternal party no matter what quarrels lay between them. Such a meeting, Pravda said, could then be followed by an international session of the world Communist movement. Fire Dead In 2-Car Collision SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) Five young persons were killed and three injured in a collision of two automobiles about IS miles north of here Sunday night. Two of the injured Were in critical condition in a Springfield hospital. Four Southwest Missouri State College students were returning from Kansas City in one car. Three were killed. The dead were: Nancy Kay Jefferson, about 20, of Monett, Mo., a student; Con- By STERLING F. GREEN WASHINGTON (AP) - Rising local and Social Security may nibble away a large — possibly .half — of Presi- -dent Kennedy's proposed tax cuts "%y the time they would take effect. The $2.2-billion increase in Social Security rates on Jan. 1 and Jhe $500-million hike in postal 1-ates on Jan. 7 will offset most of the $3.1 billion in individual and corporate tax savings proposed by Kennedy for 1963. ^ With most of the 47 state legislatures meeting this year consid- niring tax increases totaling perhaps $2.5 billion, much of the $3.2- billion reduction envisaged in the jKennedy program for 1964 would 1>e wiped out. ' Not all the legislatures are expected to raise taxes but it's true jthat a four-year cycle of such ac- Jtion has developed, and 1963 is the ^ear for it. Thirty-three states raised taxes in 1959. Three other factors will be working, tax experts report, to dilute the income-boosting, invest Bient-stimulating and job-creating benefits of Kennedy's net $10.3 billion, three-year tax reduction. -. 1. Part of the taxpayers' savings would be picked up automatically by the 19 states whose taxpayers can deduct federal income taxes from their taxable income. In these states a cut in federal taxes means more income would be subject to state tax. : 2. In 13 states whose tax sys terns are tied to the federal system, the laws require that citizens compute their taxable income on about the same basis as they do for the federal income tax. The revenue-boosting reforms which Kennedy seeks — including curtailed personal deductions—would become part of these state systems, unless the state rules are changed. The federal rate cut would not necessarily be carried over into the state systems, so state tax liability 'would be increased. 3 Cities and other local governments not only are pressing state legislatures to raise taxes and funnel more revenue to the cities, but many are considering new taxes of their own. Pittsburgh wants the Pennsylvania Legislature to let the city levy a 1 per cent income tax on non-residents who work in Pittsburgh. St. Paul has been weighing a 1 per cent income tax if the Minnesota Legislature does not enact a state sales tax to be shared with the cities. Buffalo, N.Y., has asked legislation enabling it to levy a 1 per cent payroll tax. Only three states raised taxes in 1962—Michigan, Mississippi and New Mexico—but state and local government costs went on rising almost everywhere. In many cas es the feasible limit of borrowing has been reached. A survey made by the Tax Foundation, Inc., New York, a pri vately supported, non-profit re- search organization, indicated hat by early January revenue- raising proposals were being considered seriously in 33 states. Last year's reprieve, says the foundation, "was by all indications the lull before the storm and not the beginning of any trend." It predicts: "The storm is likely to break in 1963, when scores of major tax proposals are expected to appear on legislative agendas.' The foundation's survey identified specific proposals totaling about $1.7 billion of new state revenues but dollar estimates were not available, or were available only in part, for 18 of the 33 states. Since then, governors' budget messages and other state legislative proposals have filled in some gaps. It now appears that the grand total of pending proposals would exceed $2.5 billion, most of which would be felt in calendar 1964. Such a total would mean offsetting Kennedy's second-year reduc- tioas to almost the same considerable extent as this year's federal tax relief would be offset by the Social Security and postal rate in creases. -r. LISTER Hardware-Plumbing use the WANTADS Call CH 2-4700 Stolen Dog Fussy About Its Diet MIAMI, Fla. (AP) — A $200 French poodle's owner says that thieves first stole his pet, then telephoned to inquire the animal's diet. Joseph Quinones said Friday the telephoner gave an address where the dog, Martini, could be picked up, then asked Mrs. Quinones what Martini liked to eat. "Oh, he's very fussy," she replied. "He eats only roast chicken." Quinones said he found the address was a vacant lot. The Herald pays |5 every week for the best news tip turned in by a reader.
