'King' Takes Over Capital Of Russia Blasts Park Vandalism Mayor Otto Neumann Friday asked for Ihe cooperation of all Logansport residents in eliminating vandalism in the city's parks this summer.

The audience, which had seemed somewhat restrained up to that point, applauded wildly.- When the rhythmic applause died down, the singer stepped to the.- microphone to express her gratitude. "Thank you so much," she said, "but I just wanted you to know that when I started singing that, song, I Was scared to death." One Russian said the'audience appreciated "Katyusha" -so much because it has been one of their favorite songs for nearly 30 years, ft can be compare'! with "Stardust," "which has been a perennial favorite in the United States for many years. 'But the show-stopper of the evening was the old jazz classic "One O'CIock Jump." In the words of one Soviet jazz observer, the Goodman orchestr. "really blew the roof off on thai one." Goodman Jiimself said after the performance that the audience was "wonderful ... as they say in America, it was a ball."

Humphrey called today for prompt federal income tax cuts to help cure economic "weaknesses" he said were reflected in the slock market break. The Minnesota Democrat's recommendation' of tax cuts now for both corporations and individuals was at sharp variance with statements by both Treasury Secretary Douglas Dillion and Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield. Echoing the views of Dillon and some other officials, Mansfield said in an interview there was no prospect of the' administration moving to stabilize the' market with, new'tax-cutting proposals. Prior to today, Humphrey also had stressed the economy's strength and said that, beyond urging Congress to complete action on the- pending tax reform bill, no new administration proposals were in the offing. Meets Market Officials But from New York, where iie conferred with New York Stock Exchange officials and other financial', leaders, the assistant Democratic leader framed a four- point program of "action"' to stimulate tee economy.., . B In a statement issued "today through his, office here, Humphrey said: ' ''There are certain weaknesses in the economy which have been reflected in recent stock market developments and they need to be faced and acted on immediately." Humphrey said unemployment was "too high," consumer spending was "too low," business investment for modernization was "too little," and the nation's economic growth was "too slow." Dramatic Reminder .Conceding that the economy is "enjoying considerable prosperity." Humphrey added: "The instability of the stock market is a dramatic reminder to government and 'business alike that economic policies which stimulate growth and expansion are long overdue. It will lake more than expressions of friendship and cooperation from the While House and other areas of government to strengthen the market. "What is needed is action. Delay by Congress or the administration will bring further economic trouble." Specifically, Humphrey suggested tax cuts of between two arid four per cent (presumably percentage points) on corporate income and two per cent on individual income, along with enactment of lhe> investment tax credit in the pending administration bill. He also urged a commitment by government and industry to cut unemployment to not more than four per cent of the work force, a stepped-up and expanded public works program, and a "massive overseas selling campaign" to boost exports.
