1WEDMB8DAT, JANUARY M, 19W BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER PAGE THREII Demos Considering Early Drive to Cut All Income Taxes WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee said today they are considering a,n early drive to cut everybody's income taxes. Tlie move, if it develops, would be a reversal of earlier strategy to wait until next year to consider tnx cuts. It would run headon Into President Elsenhower's declaration on Monday'against tax cuts this year before of an anticipated $2,408,000,000 deficit In the bookkeeptaK year beginning July 1. It also seemed likely to ram into significant Democratic opposition in the Senate where Sen. Byrd f of Virginia and Sen. George of Georgia already are on record as against tax reductions this year. The continuing federal deficit loomed as the biggest factor against the House Democrats' t*x cutting plan. But Democrats back- Ing the proposal argue that Republicans cut taxes last year in the face of an even bigger deficit than is now anticipated for next fiscal year. Mills Favors Cuts Rep. Boggs (D-Ls) said he favored writing a general income "tax cut into the Eisenhower administration's bill to postpone about three billion dollars in corporation and excise tax cuts, now set lo become effective on April 1. Among others known to favor some such action are Representatives Dingel (Mich) and Mills (Ark), high ranking Democrats on the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee. They talked generally of a $100 increase in exemptions for each taxpayer and each dependent—a move that would cut federal revenues by about 2'/ 2 billion dollars over a full year, and relieve about four million low-income or big- family taxpayers from any income tax bill at all. Also under study was a flat S20 tax cut tar ench taxpayer and each dependent. This would cost the Treasury about Hi billions a year. None of the proposals undel study would take effect until July WANDERER - Kenneth Hallwhich, 7, a two-gun cowboy who set out to find a mythical "Ft. Apache" in Texas Is back home in Detroit, Mich. Kenny left home With his toothbrush, hairbrush and a box lull of his favorite toys. He also had his bankbook with $10.55 on deposit, and $65,000 in stage money. However, the pistol- toting cowpoke was ambushed by police after a bus ride to downtown Detroit STARR GAZING By BETTYE NELLE STARR Courier Newi Stiff Correspondent • The first Kiwanis Club was organized in Detroit on January 21, 1915. Queen Victoria died on January 22, 1901. National Election Day was established on January 23, 1845. Gold was discovered in California on January 24, 1848. 'Hue and Cry" is an old, old expression. It was an old mode of pursuing felons; it may be raised by constables or private citizens. A constable taking part in the pursuit has the same powers as if he were acting under a warrant, and all persons who join In a hue and cry arc justified in seizing the person pursued, even if innocent. The real name of Josh Billings was Henry Wheeler Shaw. In his writings and lectures he posed as an uneducated but shrewd rustic, hose homespun philosophy, is quoted even as of now. He spent several years in frontier living in the middle west, later moving to Poughkeepsie, N. Y., and don't let anybody tell you he wasn't plenty smart. For many years he published "Josh Billings Farmers' Allnii- uax" and with huge success, too. 1 or possibly next Jan. 1. They have not been cleared yet with Ways and Means Committee Chairman Cooper (D-Tean), nor with House Speaker Rayburn (D- Tex). Rayburn so far has favored waiting until late In this session, or possibly next year, to consider adjusting what he calls "tax inequities." Southern Presbyterians Defeat Plan To Merge Church's Three Branches A /ew Sundays past, J sat behind a man and his small boy in church. During the silent prayer the man began to squirm in his seat trying to scratch his back on the back of the pew, which of course was' either too high or too low to reach the exact spot. His small son reached over and scratched his daddy's back. I could easily tell when the boy hit the right spot his daddy quieted down and I hid my race In the hymnal. Why couldn't it have happened when everybody was scrambling to find a dime for the collection plate? I don't see to my lite why the dress designers can't get settled on whether the women should have the flat chest look or the high bosom look. I don't see why r worry so much about it, ahem, but I'm thinking of the young gals. Dress designers don't loose any sleep over women past 40 only to tell those under 40 what to expect as time goes by. Anybody knows that long torsos and high bosoms are for trie young gals. Who ever saw those two on "settled ladies?" Misfortunes always come In by door that has been left open for them. In life it Is difficult to say who does you the most mischief — enemies with the worst intention!, or friends with the best. It matters not how long we live, but how. Strange how much you've got to know before you know how little you know. Old Junius, the psuedonym of a still unidentified writer, had this to say, "Be not affronted at a joke. If one throw salt at thee, thou wilt receive no harm, unless thou art raw." Tears may dry up, .iut the heart never. As one great man said "Heaven will b« inherited by every man who has heaven in his soul." Its been said that no man Is a hero lo his own wife, no woman is I a wife to her own hero. I Fools , build houses and wise men buy 1 them, is an old English proverb. That man is the richest whose pleasures are the cheapest. Some folks had rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to themselves than to be crowded on a velvet cushion. You know a few of 'em but hope you aren't one of them.

Stassen has cited 12 reasons for believing Wolf Ladejinsky, Russian-born land reform expert, deserves the security clearance Stassen granted him. Though the Agriculture Department had labeled Ladejinsky a security, Stassen said yesterday he later mtide 12 findings which convinced him Ladejinsky meets the requirements of the federal security program. Stassen said, in a summary of the case, that Ladejinsky's hiring by the Foreign Operations Administration for a land reform program in Indochina was in keeping with "fundamental principles of justice and of human rights." Stassen said his decision to hire Ladejinsky was based on these findings: Ladejinsky "is not, and never has been, a Communist;" his government service record is unblemished; his land reform program in Japan helped thwart communism; he was not a member of any subversive organizations; his writings are not favorable to the Communists system" and "no evidence was located that he at any time had written or spoken favorably of communism."
