See Compromise On Tax Cutting By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP)-The possibility of a White House compromise on tax-cutting proposals spurred administration hopes today for congressional approval of some other major segments of President Kennedy's legislative arogram. There was general belief among available Congress members that when Kennedy sits down April 25 with a group of business men led jy Henry Ford II, he will be wiling to make some concessions limed at enlisting their support for a revised tax reduction plan. Kennedy has given top priority to tax reduction. But his proposals for linking graduated cuts over three years with revisions of the revenue laws has encountered stiff opposition which has spread o other segments of his program. Republicans have cranked up a Midget-reduction drive pointed at he $4.5-billion increase in spend- ing over current levels Kennedy has estimated for the year beginning July 1. The Republican drive is aimed primarily at new administration programs, such as the mass transit and youth employment legislation already passed by. the Senate. The group headed by Ford has proposed in a preliminary statement of principles a substantial reduction in individual income tax rates, plus a cutback in the maximum corporation levy from 52 to 47 per cent. It has indicated it believes revenue law changes can wait until later. Most associates think the Pres- WELBORN'S ELECTRIC SERVICE CH 2-4332—1220 E. 7th READ SLOWLY FIRST TIME OFFERED ...

Mary Lou Lawrence made a mistake in her act on Feb. 15. She plunged 35 feet to a concrete floor and was seriously injured. "It won't happen again," she said with determination. "As long as you do what you're supposed to, you stay up there." Mary Lou, 26, is recovering from a skull fracture and a broken collar bone and rib. "I goofed," the pretty aerialist said with a laugh and a shrug. The Crown Point, Ind. girl is a dedicated aerialist who looks on her mishap as a professional lapse. "You get sort of mad at yourself because you should have known better," she said. Mary Lou isn't used to forced inactivity and she moves with the quick grace of an athlete. She is 5 feet 2 and her stay in the hospital has her weight "up to about 100 pounds." The youngest of three children of steelworker Louis Lawrence, Mary Lou is the only member of her family connected with the circus. In high school she was one of five girls who made up a troupe of acrobats in Gary, Ind., called the Comets. TRUCKING Livestock & General FREIGHT Local or Long Distance ORREN ALTIC Ph.

(AP) —There's a hole in • sandtfoiM rock near Baxter Springs that could be the footprint of a giint— or clever work done with a chisel. The perfectly-shaped "footprint" measures 44 inches long and 21 inches wide at the toes. It is several inches deep. Nearby is a print 15 by IS inches, shaped like that of an ox. The land owner, Neil Chubb, says he has known about them most of the 42 years he has lived in the area. He said a family oncfe lived nearby and his mother told how they watered their chickens in the holes. Chubb has never tried to find the source of the prints, beyond speculating that someone tried to prove that legendary Paul Bunyan and his giant blue ox once passed this way. •<, • new furniture for your house? start with financing from financial house! • Budgeting • Financing, [Interstate JJ F I N A N C « COMPANY TOM TOULOUSE.
