The action is subject to a formal roll call vote later. The financing plan, sponsored by Rep. John W. Byrnes (R-Wis.), would provide for boosting the federal gasoline levy from 3 to 4 cents a gallon for 22 months, beginning Sept. 1. After the increase expired, some excise taxes on new automobiles and trucks which now go into the these exemptions applied for this year were in the city of Logansport, with a total of $477,510. This was an increase of more than $36,000 over last year's total of $441,265 in the city, accounting for the majority of the increase for the county as a whole. These old age exemptions in the incorporated towns went up from 560,180 last year to $73,480 this year, while in the townships the exemptions increased from $95,400 to $103,735.

Hints: 'Available for GOP Veep Nod' INDL4.NAPOLIS (UPI)— Governor Handley hinted today that he was available as a Republican vice presidential candidate in I960 but said he has no intention of advancing his chances by running as a "favorite son" candidate in the Indiana presidential prefer - ence primary. Handley, sun-tanned and jovial after two weeks at the Governors' Conference in Puerto Rico, told a news conference that Vice President Richard M. Nixon is the only man in either political party with enough "trair.ir.g" to take over the presidency. Handley, who was one of three governors coming out in full support of Nixon at the conference, said he would not actively seek the second spot on the GOP national ticket. But he did not rule out the possibility that he would accept the nomination if it were offered. -J3AO§ 9UJ '^Ujrj 3UIES 3l[) JV nor named House Minority leader Charles A.

"It'll take a while," he said. "This stuff's like dynamite." Evacuation of families from 18 homes in the vicinity began Wednesday night after the tank car derailed, overturned and sprang a leak. Five fire companies from neighboring communities stood by, virtually helpless, as possibility of explosion or fire threatened the town.

Friday is the vigil before the Feast of the Assumption. The Assumption is celebrated on August 15 each year. When a Feast falls so close to a Friday the Pope, if he so desires, can exempt Catholics from their regular weekly abstinence.

President Eisenhower repeated, ly has asked Congress to increase the gasoline tax V/ 2 cents a gallon, for five years, to provide the money needed for building the interstate highway system. He has opposed any plan to tap general revenues to.beef up the highway fund. Treasury Secretary Robert B. Anderson indicated to the committee Wednesday, however, that the administration was ready to talk about a compromise. The plan approved by the committee today would' permit the government to make Sl,800,000,000 in apportionments to the states for the year starting next July 1. The apportionments would be $2,000,000,000 and $2,200,000,000, respectively, in the following two years. Under present law, the apportionments would be $2,200,000,000 for each year. Near Showdown On Labor Bill WASHINGTON (UPI)-Key Republicans said today they may try to water down tile tougher of the two House labor reform bills in an llth hour attempt to pick up votes of wavering GOP members. This strategy was being considered as the House nsared a showdown between the conservative- backed bill, endorsed by President Eisenhower, and a milder measure backed by the Democratic leadership. Although spokesmen for each camp cautiously predicted victory for their measure, they conceded that the race was so close it could be decided by a margin of five votes or less.
