Chicago Stores To Collect Indiana Tax INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indana may gain as much as Jl million revenue from a Chicago shopping center whose me^ chants have agreed to collect use taxes. William L. Fortune, state rev- RHue commissioner, estimated the yield Friday in announcing that eight stores in the River Oaks Shopping Center, including Marshall Field Co. and Sears, Roebuck & Co.. will collect a 2 per cent us^e tax for deliveries made into Indiana. "The potential is just unlimited if we can keep the collections up," Fortune said. Collections to. begin Jan.; 1 in the center will e.\ceed all other use taxes received along the Illinois-Indiana border. Fortune said. He explained Indiana and Oinois have had a reciprocal tax collecting agreement since 1964 "but this is the first real penetration that has been made In the Chicago area." The 2 per cent use tax, which corresponds to Indiana's sales fax will be levied only on deliveries made from center stores into Indiana, Fortune said. The stores will collect Illinois' 4 per cent sales tax on purchases carried from the stores. The lOO-acre shopping center, 2 miles west of Munster, is expected to generate sales of S50 million or more a year. Fortune forecast it would draw 90 per cent of its business from Indiana residents. He reported Illinois. Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio CoJ- Jected about $600,000 in use tax- fs for Indiana In a recent year.

Veraoo Regency Mo>^ors, Inc. HIGHWAY S7 NORTH MT. VERNON, ILL. PHONE 242-6200 NEW YORK (AP) — Perry Como, back on NBC Mwiday night with the first of his occasional specials, is still the-same relaxed fellow with the, pleasant voice and the nice manner. But seems to lack its old style and pace. It ambled when it should have moved briskly. Neither the sets nor the use of color was up to the standards to which we have become accustomed. Fortunately Como had two engaging guest stars to help out Angela Lansbury made her first television appearance as a musical comedj' star, singing and dancing. Bob Newhart had one very funny monologue, but his sketch with Como was decidedly on the anemic side. All in all, it was a rather perfunctory hour of mild entertainment NBC sprinted back to the lead in the national Nielsen ratings in the report released Monday. CBS dropped back into second place. The averages for the two weeks ending Nov. 6 were NBC, 19.4; CBS, 18.3, and ABC, 16.7. One interesting aspect of the new list was the strong showing of some special programs. Four made the top 10 and CBS' half- hour Halloween special, "It's the Great Pumpkin, • Charlie Brown," a cartoon show, actually tied NBC's mighty "Bonanza" for top position. CBS' "Lucy in London" was next, followed by the weekly Red Skelton show on.the same network. Other programs in the top, 10 were CBS's Lucy Show, NBC's Ice Follies, tied with CBS' Jackie Gleason Show, CBS' Green Acres, ABC's Alice Through the Looking Glass, and CBS' Andy Griffith Show. Two shows popular in other seasons are faring less well this year. ABC's "The Fugitive" wound up in the lower thh-d of the Nielsen list — probably because of tough competition from NBC's movie reruns. "GHligan's Island," which was a hit in a Thursday night time period, has dropped far down the list since CBS moved it to Monday nights. Neither "Batman" nor "Peyton Place" is doing as well as last season. Wotching TV Haiti is the oldest Negro republic in tiie world.

MUWMAN TAY NINH, South Viet Nam (AP) — The world's only inflatable combat hospital has received a bloody baptism of fire in the iungles of South Viet Nam. The $2-million complex of afr- filled operating rooms, laboratories and surgical wards, was trucked into an abandoned tapioca plantation 90 miles north- cast of Saigon near the Cambodian border. Before the rubber-lilte dacron buildings could be blown Up and put into operation, the Viet Cong nearly destroyed the entire hospital with a mortar attadt that killed the hospital commandant, tore gaping holes in the roof of the unoccupied nurses' quarters and riddled one of the inflatable ward units with more than IdfO holes. Despite the initial mortar attack and another one less than, a week later, the self-contained, completely mobile hospital immediately went into operation as a foi-ward surgical clinic with most of its facilities still in packing crates. That was two weeks ago. Because of the bitter fighting and the growing number of casualties from Operation Attieboro in the rain forests of War Zone C, Army medical authorities decided to activate the inflatable, expandable hospital ahead of schedule. Twenty minutes after the completely air-conditioned, dust free, 60-bed surgical hospital opened its plastic doors for business, a Medivac helicopter set down on the landing pad less than 100 feet away and Capts. Richard Welch of Louisville, Ky., and Carl Borders of Rochester, Mich., were operating on their first patient. If necessary, the entire hospital can be collapsed and loaded onto helicopters in less than 15 minutes. When other inflatable, expandable units are available. It can be converted into a 200- bed evacuation hospital. By OVtD A, MAR'HN AP FARM WRITER WASHINGTON (AP)- Wheat markets appear to be on the upsurge again under the influence of greatly reduced American supplies, farmer holdings of this year's crop and reports of poor prospects ior the fall-seeded winter wheat crop. For three consecutive weeks, prices have moved upward to make up for some of the ground lost in the late summer. No. 1 hard winter whe^t.sold for ;as-much, as ^1.88 a bushel at Kansas City-late, last week, up nearly 10 cents from Septemiier. "Receipts continued light as producers and country elevators ware strong holders," an Agriculture Department market review . said. "Export interiest picked up, reflecting, in. part famme and drought conditions in India. Crop. prospects for 1967 worsened over wistern' Kansas and adjoining areas due to lack oif moisture." The report said market prices for this class of wheat averaged $1.79 a bushel in Kansas City during October. This was 20 cents more than a year earlier, hilt was down from the July- Augutit average of $1.95. Quantities.of U.S. wheat moving into export during the 196& 67 marketing season beginning last July 1 have been running slightly in excess of the record rate of the-previous season. Yet, depoilnierit officials have said that less .wheat will be exported tor.the marketing year as a whole because of the reduced. Marshall Runs For Speaker SPRINGFIELD, HI. (AP)State Rep. John W. Lewis of Marshall, veteran of 24 years in the legislature, has entered the race for speaker of the Illinois House at the 1967 session. Lewis, speaker in 1963, told a news conference Monday he expects to win but. will abide by the wishes of the Republican caucus Dec. 20 in the interest of party unity. He said he had heard reports of a "stop Lewis" move by his opponents. He termed it a "desperation step" and predicted it would fail. Other Republicans already in the race are Reps. Ralph Smith, Alton; (Zharles C)a- baugh. Champaign; and John Parkhurst, Peoria. Reps. William PoUack, Chicago, and George Burditt, LaGrange, have been mentioned as possible entnes. Lewis, 61, said if he is elected he will name a Cook County legislator as GOP majority leader. • He said the coming session, in which Republicans will control the House and Senate, will establish a record for the (JOP candidate for governor in 1968. Lewis said he had no ambition other than to be speaker.

(AP) — The Kentucky Baptist Convention has launched a drive to raise $37,000 as ransome for 37 Baptist preachers now in Cuban prisons. The idea was advanced by former U.S. Rep. Eugene Slier, an active Baptist layman, at the convention's meeting this week. The group voted to ask for private donations to buy food and drugs to be sent to (5uba in exchange for the ministers, convicted as "spies" in 1965. Siler ' contributed the first $100. Two American missionaries are among the prisoners: tlie Rev. Herbert Caudill, Omega, Ga., and tiie Rev. James David Fite, Waynesboro, Ga. The others are Cubans. The resolution approved Friday said the preachers "have been accorded such miserable treatment that now their very lives are in jeopardy." Favorite environment of bluebirds is farmland with fields, groves of trees, ponds or creeks.
