PAR Hifs Tax Load In Sfafe BATON ROUGE (AP) - The tendency in Louisiana is to impose a heavier tax load on business and industry than on individuals, the Public Affairs Research Council (PAR) said today. The average Louisianan pays less in state and local taxes than he would if he lived in j most other states, the non- j profit, independent res e a r c h < agency said in releasing its 144- page "L o u i s i a n a State Tax ; Handbook, 1964." This is clue in large part to the low property taxes on homes, PAR said. : PAR's tax handbook briefly , describes each of the state's 46 taxes. It gives the rate of each, ; the yield, legal authority, shows i who pays the tax, when paid, I who collects it, gives the ex-' emptions, and shows where the money goes. To correct this imbalance, PAR suggested first consideration be given in the future to local tax increases rather than i state increases when added funds are found necessary.

LSD Branch Bill Okayed BATON ROUGE (AP) - The Senate Judiciary C Committee voted 7-1 Wednesday to approve a bill authorizing construction of junior college branches of Louisiana State and Southern Universities in the Shreveport- Bossier City area. Sen. Garland Bonin of Lafayette opposed the measure saying the University of Southwestern Louisiana would have to discharge 32 of its faculty members next week because of a shortage of fund?. Sen. Jackson B. Davis of Shreveport, sponsor of the bill, told the committee his area lacks any kind of stale institution for higher learning. IN CALIFORNIA Indifference To Primary Seen LOS ANGELES (AP)-Those curious people, the Californians, seem to be displaying a great indifference to the vital business of picking a Republican presidential nominee in their June 2 primary. The concentration of news media personnel in this former center of movie-making would indicate that something important is going to happen in next Tuesday's primary voting. This contest pits Sen. Barry Goldwater, R-Ariz. against New York's Gov. Nelson A, Rockefeller— and the assembled noncandidate aspirants for the nomination to oppose President Johnson in November. Ordinarily, a chance to help choose a party nominee would exhilarate the residents of almost any state. It did exhilarate the Republican voters of Oregon on May 15, when Rock- SIGNATURE LOANS $25 to $2000 ARRANGED BY PHONE Arrange your loan by phone. Pick up the cash at your convenience. No co-signers.

Confronted with the possibility they may be able to Veto one of the two challengers for the nomination, California's voters seem to be replying with a political yawn to the campaigns of Goldwater and Rockefeller for the state's 86 GOP presidential nominating delegates. A drive down California's freeways discloses billboards extolling virtues of the opposing presidential candidates. But off- leeway stops with average citizens registered a minimum of interest. the cliche being passed among politicians was that the crowds didn't listen to what Goldwatef had to say and applauded him vigorously, while they listened to Rockefeller but didn't applaud. This perverse attitude on the part of California voters left political forecasters nonplussed, despite state polls indicating Rockefeller now is enjoying a surprising substantial lead over the Arizona senator. But no expert could judge from the reception of the two candidates how their campaigns really were going. In the campaign rallies, the "We want Barry" chant boomed out over full convention halls. The bright lights burned down oft the gfay-haifed cafididate from Afisofia. fhe pfeliy girls in their cowboy hats matched about. But there was fid convincing aif of Victory if! all of the maneuverings. In contrast, Rockefeller, his hair awry, signed autographs in a group pressing around him and stepped onto a platform to declaim his views earnestly and somewhat monotonously. There were seldom any "we want Rocky" shouts. But the New York governor's campaign, nevertheless, had acquired an atmosphere of victory that seemed to be lacking in his opponent's. Lunar spots described as the color of a gem ruby have been reported with increasing frequency in the past few years. 24-Month Plan You Get Mo.
