8 - Thuis., May 13, 1965 Redlands Daily Facts House members point to military pay raise need WASHINGTON (UPI) — Key House members pointed today to a recent plea by the Navy as an urgent reason why military pay must be raised even higher than President Johnson is asking. A request for a military pay raise for military personnel was included in a proposal Johnson sent to Congress Wednesday for a total of SS53 million in salary increases for some 5 million government em- l)loycs. All the raises would go into effect Jan. 1, 1956. Civilian em­ ployes would get a 3 per cent increase. The military increases would range from 2.7 per cent for personnel with loss than Iv.o years service to 4,8 per cent for those with more! than two years. j There was little doubt the! military portion of the proposal would pass. The only question was whether Johnson would get more than he asked sooner than he wanted it. Chairman L. Mendel Kivers. D-S.C, of the House Armed Services Committee has been pusliing hard for a military pay raise since early March. Joined by 32 of his committee's 37 members, he has introduced legislation that would provide an average 10.7 per cent raise for all servicemen on July 1. Rivers' bill for the nation's 2.6 million servicemen alone would cost SI billion a year compared to the SS33 miUion total of Johnson's over-all proposal. The combined civilian . and military government payroll now nuis about S30 billion a year. Committee members said to­ day they welcomed Johnson's request but were disappointed that it did not call for a higher increase. Noted Appeal Several members noted an appeal made this week by Navy Secretary Paul H. Nitze, who asked officers and enlisted men due for discharge soon to voluntarily extend their tours of duty in the "combat environment" brought on by the Vietnamese and Dominican Republic situations. Nitze's appeal was prompted !by a recent drop in Navy en• listmcnls. i "If those men were satisfied with military pay the Navy wouldn't have to ask them to sign,up.", said Rep. William ; Bates, Mass., ranking Republican on the committee. "It's not a healthy situation." Tax reform passes its first legislative hurdle By DeVAN L. SHUMWAY United Press International S.-^CRAMENTO (UPI) — A massive ta.x reform program was past its first legislative hurdle today—although Gov. Edmimd G. Brown indicated he Reports on sale of illegal cars LOS ANGELES (UPI)—Cali- fomians illegally buy up to 3,000 imported automobiles each month, Tom Bright, director of Che state Department of Motor Vehicles, said Wednesday. Bright said his office has started a major investigation of so-called "bootleg" auto import sales — most of which occur in Los Angeles and Orange Counties. He said unlicensed and un­ franchised individuals, who advertise cut-rate prices in newspaper ads, act as go-betweens in direct overseas purchases of cars bought in the name of California buyers. The price cuts can apparently be given, because no federal excise taxes and state use taxes are paid. Bright emphasized the investigation does not reflect on the operation of properly licensed and franchised import dealers.

Bomb damages Negro church in Alabama OXFORD, Ala. (UPI) - A bomb explosion early today heavily damaged a one - rooni Negro church near here, smash, ing windows and ripping a gap^ ing hole in the floor. No injuries were reported. Several hours after the blast nearly $1,000 had been collectej toward a rebuildmg fund for the Pine Grove Methodist Church in Uie Friendship community. Officials said the explosion damaged the interior of ths small concrete block church extensively, cracked walls, ble\; doors loose, lifted the roof from the sides of tlie building and left a 3 by 5 foot hole in tin floor neai- the entrance. Damage was estimated at between 54,000-55,000 by J. R. Slriplin, mayor of the all-Negro Hobson community near here. The church is about two miles froin Oxford, an all-White suburb of Anniston. Lt. Eric Sheffer, commanding officer of the 142nd Ordnance Demolition Detachment at nearby Ft. McClellan said tlie blast "very defmitely was some type of bomb." The church has 29 members.

Crediting unexpected tax revenues, primarily from collection of the state income tax, the governor said the fmancial position had improved. He dropped outright his bill to boost the state income tax by S125 million a year—and eased the pressure | further study. Petris, chairman of the committee, said Monagan had made a "fine pitch" but added: "I'm shocked that you would surrender the sovereignty of this leg- legislature to the e.xecutive branch."
