JUNE 5, 1962.. For All Newspaper Departments Telephone S141 Price Per Copy, Ten Cents RAIL PAY ACCORD Joining Local Firm John Rinehart, city engineer, resigned that position Tuesday morning, effective July 1," according to an announcement by Mayor Otto Neumann. Rinehart will join the staff of Construction Associates on U. S. 24 E, immediately after leaving his present position. The resignation was submitted in writing after several weeks, of consideration, Rinehart said. Mayor Neumann said he had no replacement in mind at the present time. RINEHART, 34, lives at 928 Cecil St., and is married to the former Peggy Powlen of Logansport. They have four children. He served on the board of works and public safety with May. or Neumann and City Attorney Richard Molique. Rinehart's resignation marks the first major change ,in Mayor Neumann's official family. He became the city's engineer on Jan. 1, I960, the day Mayor Neumann took office. OBVIOUSLY UPSET by the resignation, the mayor offered to destroy the paper if Rinehart would reconsider. After refusing, Rinehart said he could give no definite, reason for making the change other than the fact he would feel the future was more secure with a private company than on a politically-appointed job. Prior to his appointment 'as city engineer, Rinehart had been employed by the city during the construction of the new sewage disposal plant and the Municipal airport. HE WAS GRADUATED from the Logansport high school in 1945, studied engineering for one year at Purdue, and then enterec the service for three years. In 1951 he was graduated as a civil engineer from the Indiana Technical College of Fort Wayne and was associated with the Barnes Construction Co., of Lo gansport, for eight and one-hali years.

Speaker John W. McCormack nformed newsmen of this attitude after the legislative leader' weekly breakfast meeting with ennedy at the While House. 'reasury Secretary Douglas Dilon said Monday night- that tax eductions would be proposed next year. "Congress is always receptive o that kind of proposal," McCormack told newsmen. He said the leaders told Kennedy of their attitude. The speak- ;r said they were "in favor of .ax cuts." Dillon spelled out the tax cut >roposal in a speech in New York. He said the administra- ion's tax reform bill to be submitted to Congress in 1963 would Jrovide a "top-toJbottom" reduc- .ion in income tax rates. He was expected to be ques- ioned in detail about the proposal during a scheduled appe-lnb$e oday before the Senate Finance Committee. Dillon did not say whether he meant corporate as well as individual taxes. There is .some division of opinion within the Democratic party about including cor- vporations in a tax cut, although informed Washington opinion be- iieves it likely. Ambassador BONN CUPD—The Foreign Office today announced the appoint- ent of Karl Heinrich Knappstein, West Germany's United Nations observer, as ambassador to Wash' ngton. Knappstein will replace Wil- aelm Grewe whose reassignmeril was announced by Chancellor Konrad Adenauer last month. NEW YORK (UPI)- Stocks rallied sharply during the second hour of trading today, as Wall Street's .assessment of administration plans for a "top-to • bottom" tax cut apparently hardened ientiment and triggered a fresh wave of buying. The trading pace quickened as prices rose, causing a lag of 24. minutes on the ticker tape shortly after .the noon' hour. "Flash" prices—transmitted to show the current status of some lading is- ues—put some of the blue, chips up as much as $2. Some of the recently hard hit stocks were among those to register the widest gains.; International Business Machines was up around Zenith ahead better than S2 and American Home Products up nearly $3. Treasury Secretary ' Douglas Dillon, in an address Monday night to the New York Financial Writers Association, said President Kennedy plans to present to Congress next January a broad plan of "top-to-bottom reduction in the rales of income tax." Dillon spoke after, a day which saw traders, dr.op~more. than .$11 billion'in paper value of stocks, continuing,the downward trend of last Friday. /The slump brought the stock market to a point halfway from that reached May 28, when the market posted, losses almost -equal to the crash year of 1929. Dillon told the financial writers the administration had made "no decisions on any of the details" of the proposed tax cuts. He also did not specify. whether the proposal would include both corpo- rote and. individual taxes. The Treasury secretary said last week's trading on the nation's exchanges was a case in which "all vestiges of reason •were temporarily pushed aside." He predicted the United States can look forward to continued economic progress which "should also bring with it a rise in corporate profits." Dillon's remarks appeared aimed at settling .the..nerves of jittery traders and to'boost confidence in the nation's economic future. Volume Monday was 5,380,000 shares, compared with 5,760,000 on Friday and a 9,350,000 turnover a week ago Monday. The Standard and Poor's index of 500. stocks was off 2.11 to 57.26, and the Dow Jones average of 30 industrials fell 17 points to : 593.68. Dillon referred .to last week's frenetic activity on Wall Street as "a phenomenon that should give us all pause." Astronaut Explains Capsule Overshoot WASHINGTON (UPI)- Astronaut Scott Carpenter visited President Kennedy at (he White House today and later explained why he overshot his recovery area target by about 250 miles after his triple orbit of the earth on May 24. Accompanied by his wife Rene and his four children, Carpenter spent about 20 minutes with the President and then took .off for New York for a lunch honoring him, Talking. with newsmen at National Airport just before.-leaving, the astronaut said, the space agency in a report just completed attributed his overshoot in landing to several reasons. First, he said, there was an error "in yaw and attitude'' of the Aurora "7 spacecraft as it neared re-entry into the atmosphere. There also was slightly less thrust than expected from the retro, or braking, rockets when he fired them to slow his speed for re-entry, he said. A third factor, Carpenter reported, was that the retro rockets fired a few seconds later than planned. All factors were "insignificant" compared with the. yaw, or ;side- to-side motion, of the space capsule as it neared atmospheric reentry, the 'astronaut said. ' This was the chief reason hfe landed so far down' range from his - scheduled, impact spot in the Atlantic, .he said, The -President met the Carpenters first in his office then escorted them to the adjacent White House "fish room" where newsmen awaited them. Kennedy introduced the 37-year- old astronaut to members of the secretarial staff of the White House . and 1 /suddenly found there were some teen - agers in the group;.of- hand-shakers. . . They ; were, six* high school essay contest winners from Wes Virginia. They had been escbrted 10 the White House by Rep, Ken Hechler, D-W. Va.

Union Groups Confer CHICAGO. (UPI) - Negotiators or 450,000 <:ff-frain employes to- ay delayed agreement on a rail- oad offer of a 10.2-cents-an-hour 'age increase. Railroad .End union negotiators ntcred whal. had been billed as a xjssiljle shavfdown session on the oads' offer to go along with a residential emergency board's ecommendii.lions on wage in- reases. But the niceting broke up after 5 minutes without agreement. J.E. Wolfe, chief .negotiator for he railroads, said i "The' unions want to talk: among themselves nd then they'll call us back." George Ltighty, spokesman for he 11 non.ajierating brotherhoods, iaid "Therei were no projwsals or •equests. They haven't done any more than n the past." It was tin! second time the un- ons had held off final settlement of the dispute. Another meeting lad been scheduled Monday night, but the brotherhoods decided at 111! last minute to cancel it. In another facet of the railway union dispute, federal mediator Leverelt Edwards was to meet later tndaj:; with representatives of the railroads and of operating rail emplojes, The two sides arc at loggerheads over anolher presidential board recommendation which would result in wholesale dismissal <>.! firemen. Wolfe announced Monday that the railroa Js had agreed reluctantly to grant the 10.2-cents-an- hour increase to off-train employ- es. He said the roads still felt the recommended increase was inflationary and might lead to higher freight rates. Spokesmen for the 11 unions, which hav<! demanded 25 cents an hour pay raises, said they '-'neither accepted nor rejected" the railroads' offer. Wolfe sail the railroads agreed to tlie offer after receiving a message from. Labor Secretary Arthur Goldbsrg that they had "no alternative • but to. accept the board's recommendations sines the counlr" could not tolerate a strike of'foiiy railroads'which was threatened, by the unions. We therefore bow to the public interest." The nor,- sperating unions have been 'free \>> strike under the Railway Labor Act since-early. Sunday. . , Wolfe saiii the wage boost would cost the ralroads $105 million a year. • The presidential board recommended a 4 cent an hour pay hike retroactive to Feb. 1 and a 2% per cent boost retroactive to May 1. Wolfe estimated'the dual recommendations would add about 10.2 cents 1111 hour to the wage of off-train employes, who now average $2.48 ;:n hour.
