The President an nounced dispatch of his bill to Congress while the com mittee hearings were in ses sion. Lobbyists Jam Hearing Secretary of Commerce LutJber H. Hodges took the witness stand first. He was joined by Secretary of the Treasury C. Douglas Dillon, Budget Director David E. Bell, and Rex M. Whitton, federal highway administra tor. More than 300 spectators, mostly lobbyists for the trucking industry, the oil companies, highway builders, and tire manufacturers. jammed the hearing room to hear the administration's case.

Khrushchev told a confer ence of Russian agricultur ists: "We are living in good times, comrades. Both on earth and in the boundless cosmic space tne boldest dreams of man are being made reality. How can one fail to re joice in the fact that the creator of many great deeds and accomplishments, is our peo ple, who are building com munism."

The bill would raise the tax on diesel fuel to 7 cents a gallon. Trucks and buses would pay a highway use tax of $5 per thousand pounds of gross weight compared with the present $1.50. Higher taxes on tires and tubes also are rec ommended. Secretary Hodges testified that highway revenues will not under existing laws De sufficient to complete the in terstate highway system as originally scheduled. Dillon opposed industry proposals to let gasoline taxes decline 1 cent as scheduled this year and let the govern ment finance part of the highway program out of the treasury general fund. Dillon Cites Studies He said that the President was willing to have gasoline taxes increased to 4V2 cents a gallon and his proposals for diesel and highway user taxes dropped.
