Donald Harold Gregory, 33, of 833 South 25th street, and Con- •tanot Ann Burnett, 29, Wausaw, Proposes Tax On income Tax NEW YORK {AP) — Former White House economist Walter Heller advocates a temporary surtax on income taxes, the kind of increase that House Republican Leader Gerald R. Ford says could be a "tragic mistake." Both men put forward their positions Monday in speeches before the annual convention of the U.S. Savings and Loan Ass<> dation. In suggesting a 5 per cent surtax, or tax on a tax. Heller estimated it would produce about $4% billion in new revenues. Ford replied: "From the business point of view, a tax increase could have its greatest impact precisely when business does not need a depressant but maybe even a pep pill. From the point of view of the worker, it would take an additional slice out of the pay checks of wage earners ahready hurt by sharp price increases." Legal Aid For Indigent Grant NEW YORK fAP) - The Ford Foundation has announced a ?1 million grant to establish a nationwide ,. legal orgamzation to handle criminal and civil cases that involve indigent persons.

Kennedy. Chicaeo Produce CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Mercantile Exchange: Butter 93 score AA 66%; 92 A 66%; 90 B 65%; 89 C mi: cars 90 B 66Vi; 89 C 65.

Wall Street NEW YORK (AP)-The stock market moved lower early this afternoon, showing little response to attempts to rally. Trading was fairly active. Losses among key stocks went mainly from fractions to a point or so. A drop of more than 3 points by Du Pont, however, was an extra drag on the averages. The chemical giant was still reacting to news that it had cut ifs year-end dividend to $2 a share from the $2 .S declared a year ago. Along with General Motors— which sagged another VA — Du Pont helped give the market outstanding blue chip leadership to the downside. GM still was affected by news of its cutbacks planned for December and January. The rest of the stock list was suffering from uncertainty over the chance of a tax boost and an assortment of drab economic news. The Associated Press average of 60 stocks at noon was off 1.6 at 291.0 with indusbials down 3.3, rails off .4 and utilities off .3. The Dow Jones industrial average at noon was down 7.30 to 790.86. Losses of more than a point were taken by Standard Oil (New Jersey), Anaconda and Zenith. Montgomery Ward showed a 1 -point loss, recovering partially from a drop of 2»4 to 19% on a huge early block of 344,900 shares. Chrysler sold at 30, off Vt. Prices on the American Stock Exchange were generally lower.

MILKS MADRID, Spain (AP) - Gen. Francisco Franco proposed new laws today to bring a, modified form of democracy to Spain after 27 years of dictatorship. He asked the nation in an address to Parliament to approve changes in the national organic laws that would provide for a premier and a chief of state. He now holds both posts. Franco also proposed en increase in the membership of the Cortes—Parliament—by the * inclusion of 100 members directly elected by Spanish heads of family. The laws would give a broadening of representation in other official bodies. "A real democracy cannot be merely formalistic," Franco told the Cortes. "It requires moral and material elevation and true citizenship. "Every country must work this out in its own way. "Vith us a genuin.'-, orderly, and effective democracy excludes political parties, but this in no way implies the exclusion of the legitimate conb-act of opinions, of the critical analysis of the solutions of government, of public formulation of programs and measures contributing to the progress of the community." Franco's speech made no mention of a specific successor, but his project detailed changes and amplification of the law of succession which restored a monarchy to Spain, On succession, he proposed that it the post of chief of state becomes vacant through death or incapacity, the three-man Council of Regency must take over these powers and within three days announce to a meeting of tiie National Cabinet and Coimcil of the Rsalm a nominee of royal blood who must, if qualified, be approved by two-thirds of those present. If this proposal is not accepted, the Council of the Realm and the Cabinet must make a second proposal of a nominee to become king. If, in the judgment of those meeting, there is no person of royal origin who meets all conditions of law tiiey must propose to the Cortes a regent to take over the powers of chief of state, setting the term and conditions of such a regency. COMMUNITY CENTER TALKS AUTHORIZED (Continued from Page 1) End Cumulative Voting—Hewlett SPRINGFIELD, HI. (AP) State Auditor Michael J. Howlett today advocated elimination of cumulative voting for the Illinois House of Representatives. Hewlett said the system does not give the best qualified candidates and that the principle of minority representation could be better protected with a one-man, one-vote ballot. Under the cumulative procedure, a voter is entitied to three votes for House candidates in a district and can distribute them as he wishes. "Cumulative voting encourages deals between the parties," Howlett said. "In dish'icts where one party predominates strongly, the candidates of the minority party have the incentive to go to the majority party for help against candidates of their own party." Hewlett's suggestions were made in a letter to Rep, Marjorie Pebworth, R-Riverdale, chairman of a legislative commission studying possible changes in the Illinois Constitution. Howlett recommended a system under which no legislative candidate could receive more than one vote from each voter.

(AP) - Santa Claus, says the City Council, is neither a public official nor a foreign power. So he can't land in Clifton. A department store (W.T. Grant Co.) had applied for permission to land Santa by helicopter at a shopping plaza Friday to launch the Christmas shopping season. But an ordinance forbids flying machines from landing in Clifton's airportless 12 square miles. The two exceptions are public officiate and foreign powers. "We love Santa Claus in Clifton," said a councilman. "We welcome him by sea, land ... any way but by air." David Lawrence, Dem Leader, Dies PirrSBURGH, Pa. (AP) — The name of David L. Lawrence was not too well known outside Pennsylvania, except to men like Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson. Lawrence, who died Monday at the age of 77, spent his political career spotlighted in Penn sylvania as four-term mayor of Pittsburgh and governor. quate use. Heidenrelch said, "I was disappointed fu'st when the library board did not take the opportunity to but the building for a 51 and'again when the high school passed up the same chance. But that does not mean we should make a third mistake and sell it." He added: "I'm not sure the best use is as a Community Center, though they have not been given a proper opportunity. Even if no other use is developed this is a structurally sound building that could be utilized to house some city government fimctions Martin said, however, it appears we are going to have adequate space here (city hall) for many years to come." No specific time was set at the council session for the meeting with civic organizations. The agreement calling for sale of water to Dbc and Kell forbids sale off the main to Dix within an area for a mile and a half outside the Mt Vernon city limits. The agreement sets up an area of about 25 square miles around Dix and Kell that can be served by the municipal system without additional permission from the Mt, Vernon city council. In addition to that area potential customers who live along the water main from Mt. Vernon, but outside the mile and a half zone, can also be served. In all three of-the ordinances passed the council suspended rules requiring second reading in order to get the legislation on the books immediately. It had previously been announced that Register-News carrier boys would make the census of a newly annexed area that is expected to show an increase and provide the city with additional state motor fuel tax funds. The plans to realign election wards, boosting the number from seven to 10, had also been previously announced. The appraisal to be conducted by Murden is one of several required for proposed urban renewal development of an approximate 18-acre tract that would eventually be added to the Mt. Vernon High School, Community College campus. Even though it would be developed in the name of the Community College the property woiald eventually revert solely to the high school since the Community College will close to become a part of the Qass I area junior college in the Rend Lake area. The urban renewal proposal is currently being studied by federal authorities. Yule Season Partdng The council commended City Manager (Chester Lewis for his work in developing plans for the special 3-weelc parking arrangement that would move cars of business district employes outside the perimeter of the prime shopping area so more customers could park their autos. The arrangement would be in force for the three weeks immediately preceding Christmas. If the plan becomes a reality space would be used outside the business area for employe parking and free buses would provide the transportation from there to the business district. In addition, Lewis explained, business people are being contacted in an effort to get them to use some of their private property for customer parking. He stressed that there would be no mandatory ban on em ploye parking in the business section. "It would be on a voluntary basis only. Actually, they (employes) have as much right as anybody to park in the downtown area. However, we hope, and think, they will agree to the plan in order to encourage business," Lewis remarked. He estimated that from 200 to 250 additional parking spaces fcould be developed in the plan. The council approved a bid of $3,278 by Brehm-Hanna Chevrolet Co. for a police car. The overall cost would be reduced through trade-in of an auto pre- sentiy used by the police department. Summers Dodge submitted the only other bid. It was for 53,589. that he agreed with Connally in rejecting the one-bullet theory. The commission, in reaching its one-bullet conclusion, studied films of Cbnnally 's and Kenne< dy 's relative positions and reac* tions in the presidential car and meshed these with timing data concerning the possible rapidity of the shots. Dlflerent Onns Proponents of the theory that someone in addition to Oswald fired shots contend the films and timing data show that Connally reacted too long after Kennedy to have been struck by the same bullet, but too soon thereafter for a second bullet to have been fired from the same rifle. Schlesinger, a Pulitzer-prize winning historian, said at Oxford, Miss., that it "appears to me substantial facts and doubts do exist which would warrant a very intensive inquiry." He, like Life, suggested (Congress initiate the new investigation. Schlesinger said he had not read the Warren Commission report or any other books on the assassination. Russell Bnccked Report Russell said questions could be raised. "The test is, can you answer them," he added. The senator said he had not wanted to serve on the commission, but did not say why. He said his objections had led to rewriting of some key findings of the commission report "I'm the only man that bucked the report," he said. "I told them, I'm not going to sign it as long as it's this way." He said he objected to original wording that stated categorically there had been no conspiracy involved in the assassination. He insisted the report should go no further than saying that Oswald fhred the shots that kiUed Kennedy and wounded Connally.

THIRD ANNIVERSARY OF DALLAS TRAGEDY (Contlnned from Page 1) chairman, "was determined he was going to have a unanimous report.

"But Warren wouldn't hear of it He finaUy took that part and rewrote it himself." The final report said the commission found no evidence that Oswald "was part of any conspiracy, domestic or foreign."

No Tax Break If Teacher Quits WASHINGTON~(AP) - A teacher who quits his job and retums to school fulltime for further training cannot deduct his educational expenses from, income for tax purposes, the U.S. Tax Court has ruled. The decision issued Monday could affect many professions — including law, nursing and otii- ers — in which members sometimes quit their jobs and go back to school to obtain advanced degrees. Under present Internal Revenue regulations, an educational deduction can be taken only by a person who takes a leave of absence from a Job or attends school part time, and then only for the purpose of improving a skUl.
