Mrs. Sears would amend military tax DENVER - State Rep ( Virginia Sears, K-Grceley, says she will attempt to amend a bill granting some state income tax exemption to military personnel so that it applies only to enlisted persons, not officers. The bill (HB 1292), sponsored by Rep. Floyd Pettie, R- Colorado Springs, is in the House Appropriations Committee after being approved Tuesday by the House Finance Committee. It would exempt $2,000 in income from taxation for National Guard and active-duty military personnel paying Colorado income tax. Pettie said this would cost the state an estimated $1.2 million, and Mrs. Sears later said the cost for National Guard members alone would be $400,000 to $500,000. However, Mrs. Sears, a member of the House Finance Committee, said National Guard officers have told her they would prefer to have the exemption apply only to enlisted personnel, not officers, as an incentive for enlistment. She said she would try for such an amendment. Pettie and Rep. Arie Taylor, D-Denver, argued such an amendment would upset the intent of the bill. THE LOCKHORNS Vase forgers reported LONDON (AP) -Officials at the British Museum.said today a gang of art forgers has been selling fake Greek vases in London and warned that it also may have operated in other cities. At least two dealers were deceived by the eight-inch fakes and a well known auction house was preparing to put another one up for sale when it learned it was spurious, the museum said. Four of the vases were spotted when the gang tried to sell them to dealers. ' Each of the vases was accompanied by certificates of authenticity from /the British Museum's "Department of Greek and Romano-British Antiquities." The museum has no such department. One of the duped dealers told newsmen the vase he bought was brought in by a young man who claimed he was a skindi- ver and found it in a wreck. The other dealer said two men told him their vase came from a German museum selling off surplus antiquities.

Polish officials honor Jews who defied Nazis in Warsaw Terrorists in Belfast again hurl grenades BELFAST (AP) -- Terrorists threw grenades at a police car and into an army truck in Belfast early tod.ay but hurt no one as Roman Catholics made new charges of murder and brutality against-British paratroopers in Northern Ireland. The grenade lobbed into an army truck on patrol in the Catholic Lower Falls section of the capital failed to explode. No injuries were reported when another grenade was thrown at a police car and exploded in East Belfast. There also were no casualties when two masked men set off an. explosion at a bar in Stra-. bane, on the border. Someone saw the two men placing the bomb, and the drinkers got out in time. Catholics in the Ardoyne dis- trict of Belfast said they were planning a march and rally to protest the presence of the Parachute Regiment in their district. They charged that the paratroopers had murdered three men in the Ardoyne since they began to patrol the area last month. The army said the three men were armed guerillas of the Irish Republican Army. No date has been set for the demonstration. The paratroops have been the army unit most feared and hated by the Catholics since they killed 13 of them during a civil rights march two years ago in Londonderry. British officers defended the troops in the Ardoyne. By NICHOLAS I.ILLITOS' Associated Press Writer WARSAW, Poland (AP) Under gray skies and in driving rain Warsaw's former Jewish ghetto reverberated today to Ihe short roll of military drums. It was there, exactly 30 years ago, that thousands of Polish Jews were killed when they rose against the Nazis in their walled-off ghetto. A sea of flames licked out of nearly every tenement window, and 20,000 men, women and children perished. More than 40,000 survivors were immediately shipped lo Ihe gas chambers. * To honor the dead the Polish government marked the anniversary with a simple wreath- laying ceremony. The only Ihing that remains of the ghetto now is a large empty square, flanked by slate apartment houses. There were no big crowds and no speeches. 'Only about 300 civilians, mostly from state- run organizations, turned up for the occasion. U. S. Ambassador Richard T. Davies was one of the few diplomats who observed the anniversary. He laid a wreath an hour after Ihe state ceremony ended. According to Polish author-- ities "nobody was invited from abroad." Since foreign Jewish organizations would have been the ones most interested, the move was apparently designed to avoid any political sensitivity. Poland's diplomatic relations, with Israel were broken off after the 1967 Middle East- war. Thirty five American Jews, sponsored by the United Jewish Appeal of New York, came here a month ago lo honor Ihe dead. In 1940, the area was a walled section crowded with old buildings into which the German conquerors herded more lhan 400,000 Jews. Every day an average of 300 died from starvation and disease. The city's Nazi governor, Ludwig Fischer, declared: "The Jews will perish by hunger and misery, and of the Jewish Question only a cemetery will remain." To speed up the process, thousands were regularly taken out of the ghetto and gassed at Treblinka, the death camp 50 miles to the east. By April 1943 only 65,000 remained in the ghetto. Three thousand of these, led by 24-year-old Mordejai Ani- elwicz, decided to die fighting. The Polish underground smuggled guns lo (hem over Ihe walls. Jewish snipers made the ghetto a no man's land for Nazi patrols. The Germans struck back on April 19. More than 1,000 men of the SS Elite Guard stormed into Ihe quarter with flamethrowers and tanks.
