Sgyplian pharaoh who lived more han 3,000 years ago, would think well of a colossal slalue of himself .hat was set up recently before Cairo's main railway station.' It was carved during his own reign (1298-1232 : B.C.) as one of many lhat earned him the reputation of raising more monuments of elf glorification than any other king in history. . Twenty-six feet high, with a sep- arale GVi-Joot crown not yet in place, the Cairo statue is made of pink granite lakcn from the Nile's famous upriver quarry of Aswan, says the National Geographic Society. Until recently, it was one ot a pair of Barneses colossi lying amid Ihe ruin's ot Ihe ancient Egyptian capital, Memphis.-A special triick for transporting tanks was lenl by the British to haul the massive Iwo-piece figure to Egypt's present capital. Appropriated Others' Work Thanks to his vanity, Rameses 11--sometimes called "the Greal" --is one of the best known of early Egyptian rulers. Not only did hr build new structures lo himself, wives and children, inscribing them wilh accounts of his military and civilian Iriumphs: he also appropriated many works of prcdcees- Cairo's railway slatio'n holds the royal seals tightly in each fisl, a hint of .the personal power- this pharaoh enjoyed.

"His name appears every ancient building in Egypt, and on literally hundreds of lesser monuments," writes Egyptologist William Hayes in the National Geographic book, "Everyday Life in Ancient Times." As a warrior, Rameses II was less distinguished.

Whatever else may e said of him, he did undoublcdly isplay great personal valor," Left Super-Colossus Among outstanding architectural i-orlis that Rameses built, enlarged r completed were the superb Temple of Amun at Luxor, the gi- anlic-columned Hell of F,l K a r n a k , be cliff-hewp temples al Abu Sim- jil, and Ihe Ramcsseum--his greal mortuary lemple and palace in veslern Thebes.

WASHINGTON Wt -- A Scnatc- c'js 1 * Economic Subcommittee is loldhg up a go-sio"\v sign against any precipitate tax cutting moves in the 1056 congressional session. "A tax rate reduction next year in Ihe face of a booming economy might well ,be*inflationary," said a report signed by two Democrats and two Republicans and made public Thursday night. It hold out hope, however, i h a l if things go well in Ehe next 10 years, taxes may be cut "perhaps by as much as one-lhird" in that period. The subcommittee conducted extensive hearings on the subject earlier this month, taking testimony from .81 economists, lawyers and other tax experts. Us chairman is Rep. Mills .(T) Ark), second-ranking Democrat on Hi e House \Vays and Means Committee which originates revenue bills. The tone of the 'report fits in with a new, cautious attitude on tax cutting displayed by several congressional leaders follo'wing disclosure of administration plans to step up defense spending and other federal outlays in the next year. Many', law makers in. both parties returning to Washington -for the new session, are predicting passage of. an income tax cut, however. · The subcommittee report said wise lax policy calls -'lor · rates igh enough in boom times lo pay tl some of the federal debt and soak up excess ^purchasing power. -On the other hand, rates should ie lowered in times of economic setback to pump more money.-inlo he economy, it said.

"Only in highly prosperous Ernes such as the present are we ikely to find it economically pos- ible. lo reduce the level of the ederal debV the report said. Sen. Douglas (D-lll), a subcommittee member and chairman of he full Senate-House Economic Committee, filed a supplemental report saying he favors "spme readjustment'" in" federal lax laws.
