Fourteen Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune Three Prisoners Flee Chicago Jail CHICAGO (UPI)—Three prisoners, including hired gunman William Triplett, held in ,the ambush slaying of a union leader, overpowered three guards to escape today from special fifth floor jail quarters. They -were being held in a section of the Cook County administration building reserved for state's attorney's witnesses when the break occurred at 2:05 a.m. .Police said one of the three asked for a glass of water and, when a guard brought it, they at- Probe in Louisiana Widening BATON ROUGE, La. (UPI)-An investigation was widened Tuesday by the Louisiana Farm. Bureau into alleged efforts of three Agriculture Department officials to sway a congressman's vote on the Kennedy administration farm bill. A spokesman for Louisiana Farm Bureau President L.L. Lovell said farm bureaus in other southern states would be asked to check with their congressional delegations to determine if members of state Agriculture Stabilization and Conservation committees solicited votes for the farm bill. In a letter to Agriculture Secretary Orville Freeman, Lovell said three Louisiana ASC committeemen asked Rep. Harold Me- Sween, D-La., to vote for the farm bill. Their action violated federal laws against political activity by federal employes, he said, Lovell also sent Freeman a copy of the letter from McSween which identified the three committeemen and said he thought they were trying to influence his vote. Lovell said the five Louisiana ASC committeemen sponsored a cocktail party and dinner for members of the state's congressional delegation in Washington April 4. Lovell said he was attempting to find out if they used federal funds to pay for the dinner. The ASC administers federal laws governing farm and conservation programs. Members of five - man ASC committees are appointed by the secretary of agriculture in each state. An ASC policy letter warned state committeemen not to lobby for congressional votes, Lovell said. "The alleged action of the committee, therefore, appears to be a violation of the policies of your department as well," Lovell said in a letter to Freeman. When in New Orleans last week, Freeman said he would investigate Lovell's accusations. But he pointed out that committee assignments were not full-time positions and that commilteemen were subject to provisions of the Hatch Act only when they were acting as members of the committee. acked, stripped the guard of keys o a wall vault containing guns, nd rode down an elevator Jo-es- ape armed with five loaded .38- aliber revolvers. The three prisoners fled in a lew car owned by one of the ;uards. Authorities throughout II- mois, Wisconsin, Indiana and Michigan were alerted after the scape, and fleets of squad cars irowled the city, watching 'main irteries out of the city for the hree. -Hours after the escape, there vas ho indication by police of any •ace of the prisoners or the car ley stole. In addition to Triplett, the other risoners were identified as Mihael A. Huntington, 19, Chicago, eld in connection with the recent wmbing. of a North, Side syna- ;ogue, and Paul Muhlig, 19, Chiago, held for violation of the ffann Act. Triplett had been questioned by he FBI in Detroit earlier this fear, and admitted a part in the ambush of John A. Kilpatrick, in- ernational president of the United ndustrial .Workers of America. Jut Triplett, of Detroit; accused lis uncle, Dana Nash, 41, as the riggerman on the job. Kilpatrick, a bitter union foe of Convicted labor racketeer Angela 'nciso, was shot in the back of the head and left dead in a car wired with dynamite last Oct. 20.

Seeking to Stop Some Imports WASHINGTON (UPI) — Farm- aelt Republican senators joined ;oday in an effort to force the administration to seek international agreements to -restrict imports oE jork, beet, poultry and .dairy products. They rallied behind an amendment which would kill existing and proposed international pacts ;o check the flow of textile imports if they did not get their way.' Sen. Roman Jj. Hruska, R-Neb., who started the floor fight Tuesday, said at least two, and possiB'- y four, senators from the Midwest planned to .speak in support of the amendment Hruska. and Sens. Karl Mundt, R-S.D., and Francis Case, B-S.d., offered the amendment to a House-passed bill which would enable 'the administration .to regu* iate textile imports from countries which do not participate in international agreements. A 19-nation pact now'gives the United States the power to check imports. A similar agreement for Five years beginning this fall has been written but still must be ratified by the.countries. Under the terms of the agreement, the. United States would be able to hold textile imports near 1960 levels. , . The Senate bill would give the administration the 1 authority to regulate imports from non-participating countries in the same manner it can for. participating nations. The Republican amendment would nullify the agreements completely unless the administration signed pacts for pork, beef, poultry and dairy products.' Hruska, in a Senate speech, said administration support of the bill made him wonder whether President Kennedy's trade bill "was offered and is advocated in good faith." "There is absolute contradiction between the pending bill and the President's reciprocal trade agreements program," Hruska added. "They are mutually exclusive."

Says Some Farmers Fail To Pay Tax WASHINGTON (UPD-The government's chief tax collector estimates that farmers may be fail- ng to pay about .$105 billion a year in federal income taxes. Mortimer Gaplan, commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service, spoke in-Washington this week' to a meeting of the Newspaper Farm Editors Association. Caplan said experts have estimated that Americans fail to-report about $24 trillion in gross income on their tax returns. Of this :otal, about half of the so-called 'reporting gap" is believed to be in business and farm profits. Experts think abou $4 billion, of his amount may be unreported farm income. The income tax on thai would be in the neighborhood ol $105 billion. Caplan said the Internal Revenue Service is expanding its auditing of tax returns. But he saic Ms is just part of, a general pro- jram for auditing more returns of all kinds. He declared there is no special drive of. any sort to irack down on farmers' tax re- urns. The government's top tax collector says his agency does wani to eliminate the reporting gap among farmers as well as other groups. But where agriculture is concerned, Caplan said he feels much o'f the trouble has been in jetting .proper information abou' taxes to farmers. Caplan said communications media have been helping greatly in the job of getting tax news to farmers. A Library of Congress specialist on agriculture says the rural influ ence in American political life has delayed the growth of big govern ment. The expert is Dr. Walter W Wilcox. He spoke Tuesday at : panel session during the Work Food Forum celebrating the Ag riculture Department's hundredth anniversary. Wilcox pointed out that recen court decisions have opened th way to breaking rural dominance of state legislatures. Informed sources said the main of the. meeting was to tudy means of stopping the in- reasing bloodshed between Euro- jeans and Moslems in Algeria nd to discuss,plans for an inde- Jendence referendum scheduled or July. • De Gaulle was scheduled to eave on his tour this evening..
