U.S. to Russia: U2 May Have VmlofnJ Rnln luiaivu iiuiu BULLETIN WASHINGTON, Sept.

4 (AP) The United States told Russia today that a U.S. 172 aircraft may have violated Soviet territory unitentionally last Thursday. MOSCOW (UPI) The Soviet Union charged today another U2 spy plane had violated Soviet borders. In a protest note to the United States, handed over today to U.S. charge d'affaires John McSweeney, Russia referred to the U2 flights as provocations and said the world already knew what the consequences of Francis Gary Powers' U2 spying mission in May, 1960 had been.

The Soviet note said the U.S.S.R. will be "compelled to take retaliatory measures up to and including making harmless U.S.A. bases," if the "provocations" continue. (In Washington, the United States began an immediate investigation of Soviet charges according to the Associated Press. U-2 PROTEST Page Forty-one Senate Votes Home Sale Tax Gut for Elderly WASHINGTON (UPI) The Senate voted today to exempt 65-year-olds from Federal taxes on any profit they make from selling their homes up to the $30,000 level.

The amendment, designed to benefit elderly persons seeking to dispose of dwellings and use the cash for retirement, would apply only to homes used as the primary residence for at least five years. If the dwelling sold for $30,000 or" less, the profit would not be subject to the 25 nercent carjital trains tax which otherwise would apply. The tax would apply on that portion of any profit resulting from a sale price of more than $30,000. The plan, which would become effective Dec. 31, 1962, was offered by Senate G.O.P.

Leader Everett M. Dirksen and adopted by voice vote. It would apply only to homes actually used as residences. The action came as the Senate resumed debate on President Kennedy's tax revision bill after a Labor Day break. Dirksen originally proposed that all profit from such a sale be exempt from taxation, retroactive to last Dec.

31, if the owner were 60 or over. It was accepted by the Senate after he modified the amendment to raise the effective age and put a limit on the tax exemption. mm Ml I Wirinf Sytftml IIM 1401 mt4 UJO Prcgrammiitf. lkrtrr Thr Ukaralarlct wuh IIM 110 Cliltr, 407 mn4 409 TakulaUrt, Callalsn, ln ttraraUrf, rrfwcra, lrtr, Utf attihti. 1 Police Think It Was Meant A th ror Mno er The 26-year-old wife of a State Prison inmate narrowly escaped death this morning when a bomb exploded in the car she was parking near her Canal lane, Somerville, home.
