"We should reduce the federal debt during periods of boom to offset the deficits resulting during jeriods of recession and depres- ;ion." Favors Some Adjustment Sen. Douglas (D-I11), a subcommittee member and chairman of the full Senate-House Economic Committee, filed a supplemental report saying he favors "some readjustment" in federal tax laws. He suggested cuts in income tax rates on the highest and lowest brackets, but said the tax cuts should be offset by "plugging or reducing" loopholes. He called for repeal of the special tax relief for stockholders voted in 1954, and cutting down on the depletion allowances for large oil and , gas operators. Among other things. The subcommittee's report said a balanced budget is likely for the current fiscal year, which endsph next June 30, because of increased revenues resulting from booming business.

Funeral services for young Joe King were held at Jacksonville today, and Sheriff Tom Gulley said at Little Rock that he planned to question the boy's stepfather again this atternoon. The stepfather. Air Force T.Siu James R. King, was held 13 hours Wednesday, and then wns released after taking a He detector lest. Results of the test, said Gulley, were inconclusive. First Found King's body was the first one uncovered in the series of killings. A ! party of searchers from, the Little Rock Air Force Base, where the i boy's stepfather Is stationed, found i it lying" in a secluded briar patch last Tuesday, after he had been missing iroin his home for four days. Officers at first feared that the youngster was slain by a sex deviate, but an autopsy revealed that he had not been molested sexually. Coroner Howaid Dishongh said King was strangled by a killer who used his hands. The boy also suffered a deep cut on his head, but it wasn't known whether the wound was inflicted by the slayer,) or by briars when his body was' dumped to the ground. Sheriff Gulley said so far his force has checked out 15 or 20 false leads in the case, and that he still hasn't given up on the idea that .the murder was the work of a sex criminal. A parade of people passed by the body of the unidentified male victim yesterday, but Gulley said none of them could identify the man. However, a Pocahontas businessman, Noah Pace, notified officers that the victim's description fitted that of one of his former employes who disappeared last week. The missing man, Herman Summers, left in a truck, said Pace. The truck was found abandoned in Saline County last week. t Two young rabbit hunters found the dead man Wednesday about 200 yards off Highway 67 near the Pulaski-Saline county border. His body bore severe bruises, and a leather belt was knotted around his neck. In the man's pockets, police found 516.27 and he was wearing a wrist watch. However, his wallet was missing and his clothes bore no identifying marks. Coroner Dishongh never has ruled that the man was murdered, and Sheriff Gulley has toyed with the theory that he may have committed suicide. The sheriff said he may have tried to hang himself with the belt, and it snapped under his weight. Several threads of evidence provide the basis for speculation that the deaths are connected. First, the King boy was found 15 miles IMAGINATION-Shapely Julie Padillo displays an imaginative sun bonnet on the s^inds of Miami Beach, Fla. She fashioned it from a wild sponge and some seaweed.

He apparently was killed late Friday night. Next, thei body of the unidentified man was found 27 miles southwest of the spot where youug King was discovered, near Highway 67. Then, the woman was shot to death, another 67 miles south, on Highway 67. The man was killed three to five days before he was found, said Coroner Dishongh, placing the time of death after that of young King. Also, the youth's body was well- hidden in a remote rural section. While the other two were found closer to the .highway, considerable care apparently was taken to conceal their identity.

He claims it is good for typhus and deadly on lice which thrive in those parts." A paper which would have created a sensation at the time was written by Harry Dexter White, then an assistant to Secretary of the Treasury Henry Mor- genthau Jr. on the meeting in the office of Secretary Hull in September 1944. White later was accused of being a Communist who had engaged in espionage—charges which he denied under oath a few days before his death in W48. More recently Republican Any. Gen. Brownell called him a Russian spy. Sat In On Meeting But in 1944 White was trusted with many inner government secrets and sat in on the meeting along with Morgenthau, Hull, the late Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson and other officials. Mor- genthau had requested the session to report, on a Roosevelt-Churchill meeting at Quebec, which he attended. His appearance and Hull's absence at Quebec gave rise to reports of a Cabinet split over German postwar policy. At the oviset of the meeting, Hull told of having intercepted letter from a South American diplomat to his government describing a meeting of Latin-American officials at Welles' home. "Hull appeared to be quite angry at the fact that Welles' 'seemed to be operating a second State De- Three Dionne Sisters Meet With Parents NORTH BAY, Ont. (/Pj—Three of the Dionne quintuplets arrived home todny to talk things over with their parents. Mr. and Mrs. Olivn Dionne, who this week publicly accused the surviving quints of drifting away from the family, were not at the door to meet them. A source close to the family said the parents were awake, however, and added; "Mrs. Dionne was very upset during the night." In the car were the quints, Yvonne, Cecile and Annette; theiv brother. Oliva Jr., a 19-year-old airman; and two unidentified youths. Purpose of the trip home from Montreal was to patch up family differences which in three days stirred up almost as many headlines as the near-miracle of the quints' binh 21 years ago.

Since this was about a year after Welles had resigned as undersecretary of state, Hull presumably meant that Welles was attempting to carry on foreign policy as a private citizen nnd would have stopped if asked by Roosevelt, an old friend. Eventually Hull won the President away from Morgenthau's plan for Germany. But at the time of the meeting the issue was unresolved, (MORE This Circuit after 1 es.)
