PAUL (AP) — The sales tax has emerged as a live issue in the Minnesota Legislature. A number of legislators either openly or by implication indicated a preference for a sales tax in commenting on Uov. Freeman's proposals in his budget message Wednesday. The governor, renewing his opposition to a sales tax recommended instead that rates be raised on present taxes on incomes, for individuals and corporations, cigarettes liquor, iron ore, inheritance and gifts to balance the budget. One conservative Senate leader, Sen. Harry Wahlstrand, said he felt the governor had been unfair in making a comparison between a one per cent income tax increase and a one per cent sales tax. m Gave Comparisons The governor gave comparison<rheTaia showed the in- would be less burdensome than a one Hike in Income Tax Would Hit $4,000 Bracket ST.

Wozniak of St. Paul, chairman of the House Tax Committee, said he thought the governor had cut the ground from under sales tax advocates. Sen. Wahlstrand said that if certain exemptions were . allowed for certain necessities, a sales tax would be more equitable than the governor made it appear.

Lyndon B. Johnson (D- Tex.) held a taut rein today on the Senate party organization. With Johnson In full command as majority leader, Democrats parceled out their committee assignments Wednesday. Republicans are expected to have their assignments completed in time for approval by the Senate on Saturday. That would permit organization of individual committees next week. In an agreement with Sen. Styles Bridges of New Hampshire, chairman of the GOP Policy Committee, Johnson won Senate approval of enlarging some of the important Senate committees and revamping their party ratios to conform with the new lineup of 64 Democrats and 34 Republicans.

GOP Ready to Defend Space, Security Plans IF U.S. SENDS THEM Fred Cina of Aurora said he thought there was justification of the governor's budget to meet and improve essential services. Other comments on the governor's budget ranged from "fair and equitable" to "staggering and shocking." Freeman told the lawmakers that the tax increases are needed to raise an additional 82 million dollars to balance his budget. The governor's program calls for an income tax withholding system, a proposal rejected two years ago by the Legislature. This time he recommended that 50 per cent of one year's tax be forgiven. S Cents « Package Under his program, the tax on elgareti would go up from 4 to cents a package, and the iron ore tax rate would be increased by one per cent. Comments on the governor's message follows: House Majority Leader Fred Cina, Aurora, liberal: "The governor has outlined in a forthright comprehensive manner a budget which meets the needs for improving essential services in the fields of education, highways, welfare and In sjate government. The increased iron ore tax of one per •rent is practically wiped out by the recommendation that labor credit concessions be applied to the royalty tax ... strengthening th* economy of the range area." House Speaker Ed.Chilgren, Littlefork, liberal: "A thorough and very complete study of the state's financial needs. His tax program is fair and equitable and one that the Legislature can go along with in its entirety." Serioas Message Rep. John Hartle, Owatonna, conservative: "A very serious message. It fully must have brought home to everyone that when you spend you eventually have to pay. 1 cannot see how the governor's proposals are going to encourage business to expand or percentage of increase would fall most unprecedented to around six per cent in the $50,000 gross income bracket.

In a diatribe against North Americans, Castro said: Soul Bombs "They sent bombs (to Fulgencio Leaders Promise to Probe WASHINGTON (AP) — President Eisenhower a n d ,op Republican spokesmen appeared ready today with a fighting defense of the administration's space, missile and security programs. Key lenders in the new and heavily Democratic Congress already have promised searching and critical investigations into all phases of the Eisenhower defense policies and programs. Vice' President Richard M. Nixon has indirectly invited such an investigation, and expressed to fellow Republicans confidence that the programs will stand up under the scrutiny. Defended Programs Both the President and the new Republican Senate leader, Everett M. Dirksen of Illinois, defended the programs publicly Wednesday. Eisenhower told a National Press Club luncheon that this country had "made remarkable progress" in the field of long- range missiles. As to the Soviet's accomplishments in this field, he said "If we did not believe that they were somewhat ahead in certain phases, we .would indeed be a little stupid, because they have been working at it for many years, and our urgent work in this field on the long-range missile has started only something like four years ago." Lack of Balance Eisenhower commented that he thinks it shows a lack of sense of balance "lo disturb ourselves too much that we have not yet caught up with another great power and people with great technical skill in a particular item." He said this country must have a balanced military program and — ••»»j u^nu uwiiik/.^ \vw i' LUUCIJUJU X- 1 Batista's government). They sent! ready to meet an y attack with " a military mission.

It's Familiar Quick Turn in the Weather it can start, and be ready to respond instantly. "I think we are," he said. "We have made very remarkable progress." About the time Eisenhower was speaking, Dirksen replied in the Senate to Sen.
