DAILY HERALD Singlt Copy—7c Nixon Aids Ike With Message Store of Union Tolk Moy Hove Bearing on '60 Nomination By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP) - Vice President Richard M. Nixon has cut himself in on the process of assembling President Eisenhower's State of the Union message with the obvious intention of accenting Modern Republicanism. Nixon has taken steps to make certain the Cabinet members who send their recommendations to the President know the vice president's views. Cabinet members and others recommend to the 'President various ideas for possible inclusion in his annual message to Congress. Direct Bearing As a probable candidate for the 1960 Republican presidential nomination, Nixon was said to feel that the forthcoming message may have a direct bearing on his prospects for winning top place on the ticket two years from now.

Letts aaid in lu's 12-page memorandum opinion that the Teamsters, without the knowledge and consent or approval of the court- appointed monitors had issued a call for a convention in the early part of March 1959.

Berlin. - ' Some officials are predicting, however, the three Western Allies will propose that such a meeting deal with the entire problem of Germany's future as well as Ber- Berlin be turned into a free city. The feeling that such new talks would be desirable appears to be gaining ground among Western diplomats. But a decision is being delayed until after the 13-nation Atlantic'Pact Council meeting lin. New Talks Desirable American, British and French The Atlantic Pact foreign ministers will discuss the reply generally, informants said, but will not seek to draft a reply. This conference would approve guide lines which diplomats would follow in drafting a formal note a Schools Take Largest Share of Increase Property taxes paid by Austin resident next year will increase 6.55 per cent, or $6.55 for each $100 of taxes paid. This makes a total increase of about 20 per cent for the past two years, as taxes paid in 1958 increased 13 per cent over 1957. This was announced this morning by County Auditor Graham Uzlik with the total tax breakdown for Austin property owners completed. In mill rate, the increase on non-homestead property will be 17.03 mills with School Dist. 492, Austin, responsible for'the largest share of the increase — 11.47 mills. County taxes were up 5.04 mills, City of Austin taxes went up .72 mills, while state taxes dipped .2 for the only tax relief. One mill equals one dollar in taxes for each $1,000 of assessed evaluation Average Hike Is $20 According to County Assessor Al Malcomson the average tax boost for the individual Austin home owner will amount to abou $20. The total for non-homestead anc personal property will rate for Austin taxpayers will be 276.89 while the homestead rate will be 270.37. The school district mill rate will be 132.65; City of Austin 87.45 county, 44.37, state homestad, 5.90; the state non-homestead, 12.42. Breakdown of Rates The breakdown figured .by Uzlik which starts in Paris next Tues-lfew weeks later. day.

Some diplomats favor delaying this bid until later. Those favoring it believe it would be a positive reply of the f , arKs kind that is needed. It would be a Gymnasium mistake, they believe, merely to reiterate Western determination to stand firm in Berlin regardless of Soviet pressure. 80 YEARS TOGETHER — Mr. and Mrs. Peter Peterson are observing their 80th wedding anniversary today at Fair-view, Utah.
