WASHINGTON OUPI1' — President Kennedy plans, to ask Con- ;ress to cut personal.income and corporate taxes effective next Jan. 1, but the question is: How much?' The President told his news conference.Thursday that a comprehensive tax reform bill calling Hail Record Set by B52 Jet Bomber GOLDSBORO, N.C.~ (UPI)- A B52H jet bomber of. the Strategic Air Command Thursday flew a record 14,400 miles non-stop with no more extra equipment than an additional co-pilot. The huge, eight-engine jet covered the distance in 22 hours and 38 minutes over a "closed course" ringing Greenland, Alaska, California and Florida. The flight eclipsed the earlier closed circuit distance record of 10,078 miles, set by a B52 G-rr 1960. Two officials of the National Aeronautics Association accom panied the bomber crew of seven to validate the record flight under rules of the Federation Aeronau tique Internationale, governing body of air records. ' The record-setting craft was similar lo another SAC bomber which set two world distance records and nine course speed records on.. a- more than 12,000 mile flight from Okinawa to Madrid, Spain. The B52H can carry two Hound Dog guided.missiles or four Sky- bolt ballistic missiles slung under its wings. However,' the record craft carried no such armament on the flight. It differed from the earlier record holding G-model by more powerful engines and the armament system. Capt. William M. Stevenson, 37, Miami, Fla.,' piloted the flight which began at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base here. for across-the-board tax r«luc lions would be offered for fiction n the next Congress. . But he shied away from giving any figures on the size of .the pro- nosed.cut..He. said work on the :>ill shou'd be completed later in .he summer and "at that time I junk we can discuss it in more detail." There have been reports that the reduction-might amount to $5 sill-ion a year.. Responsible sources consider that figure the maximum and point out that the tinal decision will depend on the slate of the economy and the government's finances. Studies Rate Cuts One idea that has been looked at in Ihe Treasury is lowering the bottom tax rate from 20 per cent to 15 per -'cent and slicing the top rate from 91 per cent to 65 per cent Similar cuts could be made in the rales in between. By itself, such" a 25 per cent average -cut in rates could lop more than $12 billion a year from Treasury revenues — more than the administration 'would be willing to sacrifice. Such rate cuts would be offset in part by broadening the income tax base . anc making other revisions to bring in revenue. Most, corporations now pay 52 per cent on profits. A reduction lo 48 per cent has been mentioned but this is by no means certain to be proposed. Leaves Door Open Kennedy did not rule out the possibility of asking Congress to cut taxes this year. While he saW the present judgment was thai reductions would .not be needec unil next year, he added that "if circumstances brought a new situation, then we would have to make other judgments," The income tax cut was one nl Five tax proposals Kennedy saic he had made lo spur the ec;..i-> my.
