The subcommittee later this month will make a report, which Mills expects to chart some broad guidelines for Congress to follow in dealing with tax legislation. "We hope to come up with a report that will promote the economic growth of the country," Mills said. Other members of the group are Sens. Douglas <r>Ill>, O'Mahoney (D-Wyo' and Goldwater (R-Ariz) ajld Rep. Curtis (D-M). Mills last summer called on nearly 100 recognized tax experts and economists to submit written discussions of various tax problems. Eighty-four responded and their written treatises on taxes, impact of Taxes, probable effects of various tax policies and suggested rem- edies have been printed by the subcommittee. 930-Page Report All shades of opinions are x- pressed in the 930-page report. The experts differ sharply in many cases. These experts are to appear before the commiuee during the next two weeks to answer questions abou their written works, which have been studied by Mills, his colleagues and the committee staff. After the hearing ends Dec. 18, Mills and his staff will draft the report. Mills wants it published before the year ends. Mills is second ranking Democrat on the House Wasy and Means Committee, which initiates all tax legislation in Congress. Far Reaching- Effort A. W. Ford, Arkansas education director, believes the recent White House Conference on Education will have a far-reaching influence ind result in a much greater in teres'i in education. Ford, an Arkansas delegate to the conference, said he thought the idea of having lay people from all over the country participate was significant. He said it was his conclusion that while the 2,000 participants differed on some questions "they are agreed on fundamentals." Most of them, he said, favored federal aid tor construction of school facilities- Ford said he favored a program possibly patterned after the federal program for hospital construction. There was considerable opposition, he said, to any program of federal aid to operation of schools. The question of segregation wasn't on the conference agenda and Ford said the topic was nevre mntioned at his discussion table.

US Seeking to Collect $1 Million In Back Taxes from Kansas City Men WASHINGTON dfi — The government is trying to collect more than a million dollars In back Income taxes from two owners of the Muehlebach Hotel, Kansas City, Mo. They are Barney L. Allis, controlling stockholder in the hotel company, and Herbert M. Woolf, also a stockholder and a breeder of race horses. U. S. Tax Court records showed that the Internal Revenue Service claims Allis owes 5674,530 in additional taxes on his 1950 Income and that Woolf owes $397,318 for 1947, 1948, 1949, 1950 and 1953. The service said that Woolf overpaid his taxes by $44,260 in 1951 and 1952. Allis and Woolf deny that they owe the government any additional taxes and have appealed the service's deficiencies assessments to the tax court. The main Issue is whether they ahould have treated money ceived from sale of stock in the Allis Hotel Corp., Wichita, Kan., as a long term capital gain or as dividend income. The.Trianon Hotel Co., which operates the Muehle- bach bought the Wichita company's stock in 1950 for $2,342.925. Allis received $1,178.125 and Woolf S236.437 for their Allis' shares. Internal Revenue said Allis and Woolf own about the same amount of •stock in Trianon as in Allis For this reason, the service said, they should have reported the money Eisenhower Aide Will Speak At Dinner in State FORT SMITH, Ark. 1* — Presidential assistant Nelson Rockefeller will speak at a $50-a-plate dinner to Little Rock Jan. 20 to raise funds for the next Republican presidential campaign. Harry Pollock of Fort Smith, finance chairman for the dinner said money collected would go to help pay "Eisenhower's campaign" . expenses. President Eisenhower hasn't announced whether he'll seek a second term, and because of the heart attacK he suffered recently there has been much speculation that he will not. The Little Rock affair, a "Salute to Eisenhower" dinner. Is part of a fund raising drive that will cover 60 other cities, Pollock said. they received for their Allis shares as dividend income in 1950. Instead, each reported a capital gain, which is taxable at a lower rate than straight income. Internal Revenue also disallowed certain deductions Woolf claimed as expenses in breeding and racing horses. The service said Woolf's deductions for five consecutive years beginning in 1947 exceeded by more than $50,000 his gross income from his horse business. Woolf denied this, claiming he had a capital gain in 1951 of $37,375 on 16 brood mares which he sold to his sister, Mrs. Gertrude W. Lighton, Kansas City, Mo., for S74.500. Internal Revenue said this was not "a bonafide sale at arms length." Federal Prisoner Ordered Released SAN FRANCISCO 1*1 — Judge Oliver J.
