Two Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribime Seek State Hike Of Cigarette Tax : INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — A 'potential flood of new legislation was unveiled Wednesday, includ- _ihg a proposal that the cigarette tax be increased to pay for a major park arid recreational land expansion. .,..,. ; The scene was the daylong Legislative Advisory Commission meeting in the Statehouse at which some 50 possible bills were outlined by department head's. .! Director Donald Foltz of the Indiana Department of Conservation handed the lawmakers the heaviest jolts and got some rough kidding in return over his defeat at the primary in an effort to return tp the 1963 legislature. • Foltz had announced his candidacy—while still holding his state post—saying he wanted to return to the General Assembly in order to help pass the legislation he hopes to get across. Several of the legislators referred to Foltz as a '-'lame duck" or "dead duck" lawmaker and quipped that his program "was going to need protection. .; x The cigarette tax increase, •which Foltz said might be for one cent, was proposed as a'means of helping finance a $50 million land acquisition program to be carried but over a 10-year period during which more recreational areas •would be added. The present state cigarette tax is three cents, and the estimated annual receipts of an added one cent are at least $5 million a year. ' Other items on the Conservation Department proposals were: . —Increase the motorboat registration fee from $1 a year to $3. ,—Hike the present price of fish- ing licenses and establish a new license which would be for fishing only, or hunting only, not both. —Issue non-resident deer hunting licenses for the first time. —Shift the power -of setting state park entrance fees from the General Assembly to the Department of Conservation. —Divert one-half of 1 per cent of the motor fuel tax collections ;o the Conservation -Department. Several other department heads' also came before the LAC to ex-, plain bills they feel should be brought before General assembly, which opens next January. Among the proposals are: —That all employers must allow their employes a full hour for lunch. —An equal-pay for-equal work law applicable to all employers of 5 or more persons employing both men and women. Revise Income Tax •Revise the present law by which county treasurers receive much of the gross income tax on real estate and provide that the method of payment be set by the Indiana Department of Revenue. —A series of proposed laws aimed at the private employment agencies which would increase .their initial fee from $50 to $500 and the renewal fee from $50 to $250, require licensed counselors and increased bond. —That restricted driving permits be granted under certain conditions to a driver whose license has been suspended for the first time, to enable him to drive to and from work only. —That license plates be sold al full rate throughout the year, ke Spends D-Day Anniversary Quietly GETTYSBURG, Pa.

Grant Stockdale, who resigned ef« feetive July 6. WASHINGTON (UPI) — The House Rules Committee Wednesday cleared for floor debate next week President Kennedy's farm bill, aimed at cutting the government's big farm surplus stocks. The committee acted after rejecting a Republican demand for delay until Kennedy said whether the bill would permit segregated recreation, facilities. Key sections of the-bill would force feed grain and wheat; producers to choose between rigid planting controls or abolition of price supports. Another section would authorize federal aid for converting farmland to recreational use. The bill, which passed the Senate in substantially .the . same form, faces an uncertain fate on the House floor. Rep. Paul Findley, .B-ffll., was unsuccessful in urging the Rules Committee to hold up action on the bill. Findley said he appealed to Kennedy in a letter Monday to clarify the administration stand on the racial question. He said he had not received a reply. "If the administration is unwilling to face up squarely to this racial segregation question, then the answer should be written into .. .the bill itself.. .no American should be denied access to these federally-aided facilities because of race," Findley told the com mittee. ' Earlier Findley said he would offer an amendment specifically banning segregation in recreation projects built under the bill. Such an amendment might turn many southern Democrats • against the bill and threaten its chance for passage, or force the administration to jettison a section authorizing recreation development. The recreatin development section is designed to help fanners find new, income - producing uses for land now turning out surplus crops. It would provide loans and grants for converting cropland into grass, trees, and recreation CHAIN REACTION ACCIDENT CAUSES $1,000 DAMAGE PERU—Property damage estimated at over $1,000 resulted from a three-car accident that occurred Wednesday morning in Peru.

Brookman of 35 Ewing St. Force of the impact shoved the Brookman car into the rear of another parked car owned by Patrick Pendergast. of Charleston, 111. Jordan was cited for making an improper turn.
