The conference chairman, Democratic Gov. Allan Shivers of Texas ia an address prepared for the opening business session, reported "significant progress' in the field of federal-state relations. And he credited it largely to Eisenhower. Many governors have contended for years that the taxpayers would pet more for their tax dollar if the federal government turned back certain tax and welfare functions to the state. Shivers said President Eisenhower made it clear he wanted the cooperation and assistance of the stales' executives; that the close accord between the new administration and the governors' conference led to the launching of a full-scale study of federal-state tax problems. Outside the four-day conference, there was evidence of widespread support among Republican governors for Eisenhower's attempt to increase the legal limit of the federal debt. Of the 43 governors here. 3] are Republicans. Kentucky Democrat Backs Ik« Gov.

The joint Military Armistice Commission, holding regular meetings to get the truce machinery functioning, Monday approved plans for a headquarters aside the demarcation line fixed by the truce signed a week ago. MaJ- Gen. Blackshear M. Bryan, chief U. N. member, said, "This way, I won't have to go to him (the have Communists) nnd he won'.t to come to me." told a reporter there Is a better prospect for cutting taxes next year than the situation indicates now. By that time, he said, the administration will be able to put in its own program, Thornton Joined three other Republican governors who in separate news conferences yesterday advocated ihat Congress set aside any moves to cut taxes until after the federal budget Is balanced. A Democrat.. Gov, Lawrence Wetherby of Kentucky, agreed. But Republican Gov. J Bracken Lee of Utah dissented. Long an outspoken exponent of lower taxes, he said In an interview: "I don't know how you can cut spending unless you cut taxes." He said everyone agrees the budget should he balanced but that "a lot of American people are getting discouraged" over continuing high taxes. Republican Governors Alfred E. Driscoll of New Jersey, Arthur B. Langlie of Washington and Walter J. Kohler of Wisconsin declared however, it would be better in the long run to keep taxes high while the administration tries to trim expenditures. Tried By Inherited Policies "We have a political dilemma in which it is bad if you don't cut taxes snd bad if you do," said Driscoll. "But I believe the political effect of deficit spending is worse than not cutting taxes." Thornton said Eisenhower has been tied down by Democratic spending policies he inherited, but n^xt year "it wfll squarely be the responsibility of the Republican party to put in our own program." There con be "no excuses" then, he said. The President is expected to arrive in time for the formal state dinner tonight. Secretary of tlie Treasury George M. Humphrey will be the main speaker. Eisenhower will sit in on what may prove a lively discussion tomorrow on natural resources. There may be questions, for instance, on how far the administration intends to go on encouraging private development of hydroelectric power.

Young»r Man To Try to Shop* Government ROME MB—A younger man from the right hand side of the middle of the road today began trying to form a new Italian Cabinet as pro- American A I c 1 d e de Caspar! walked out on the premiership he has held since World War IT. The sharprfaced Christian Democrat chief felt for a mountain holiday after an hour's talk with his former deputy premier, Attilio Piccloni. The latter told President Lui^l Einaudi he would try to weld a government together and began sounding out other political leaders, seeking support. . The pro-American De Gasperi, whose eighth Cabinet fell last Tuesday under the combined right-and- left assault of the Communists, Socialists, Monarchists and Fascists, left town still an uncompromising centrist. "I'm goinp to rest nnd read Virgil," he told newsmen, "and I'll read the Bible where it's written in the Book of Proverbs, 'Turn neither toward the left nor toward the right.' " De G aspen siiid he had refused to try again to solve the government crisis because "I believe Piccioni will be better adapted than I am to overcome the new complications." Political observers agreed Piccioni, deputy leader of the Christian Democrats but more conservative than the former premier, might be able to attract some rightist support, New Blood De Gasperi, architect of Italy's close collaboration with the United States and the North Atlantic Alliance, was widely expected to continue as foreign minister, but the large conservative Rome daily "I! Messaggero" called his trip to the mountains an uncompromising walkout. The newspaper said his actions made it clear he has already declined to take the foreign ministry in a new government, The conferences with other politicians were expected to occupy the energetic, 61-year-old Piccioni, World War I aviator, at least until midweek. Legion Commander Gots on Tour NEW YORK <fl>)—Lewii K. Cough, national commander of th« Amtrl* can Legion, flew to- 2urop« yegter- day for a tour ot England, Franc*, Germany, Italy and Switzerland, He,said,he wanted to look Into the psychological warfare program and American information service!. The purpose, he said, was "to further unity and strengthen a unified defense." He did not elaborate on this. Although the trip was unofficial and primarily "for the legion." he said, It was also a "fact-finding tour which President Eisenhower requested I make last November." TAFT (Continued from Page 1) go on and on. Many hereafter because of his ennobling example will gain inspiration to serve in the case to which he gave his full devotion. "That will be our lasting memorial in his honor." President Eisenhower adjusted his schedule to attend the funeral today and pay a parting tribute to | the man who himself aspired to [ the presidential nomination and then became the working partner of his party conqueror. Vice President Nixon, Cabinet nnd Supreme Court members, diplomats, military chiefs, dignitaries such as Gen. Douglas MacArthur, were invited to the services. The Senate and House were called into CONGRESS (Continued from Page H for? today's session. The Senate must act' on (ill four, the hill, already approved by the House as modified yb Senate- 1.

GOP Sessions Senate Republicans have called a meeting tomorrow to select a successor for Sen. Taft (R-Ohio), who died in New York Friday of cancer, Knowland, whom Taft personally chose in June to take the job on an acting basis, is expected to be elected permanently. The Senate completed congressional action on two key administration proposals Saturday. It sent to Eisenhower for signature House-approved bills to: 1. Permit admission of 214,000 aliens above regular quotas during the next three years. 2. Authorize the President to send 100 million dollars of government-held food surpluses, until next March 15, to needy peoples abroad. ih»ftd of time w> their memberi might proceed In a body to the rotunda in the center of the Capitol building. Bo4f to Cincinnati Aft*r the state memorial rites, the body will be flown to Taft'e native Cincinnati. There, It will lie in state at a funeral home until burial tomorrow at Indian Hill Episcopal Church cemtery. Tha Interment ceremony will be private, but simultaneously a public service will be held at Cincinnati's Christ Church. The emphasis of the services at the Capitol today was on dignity and brevity: An opening prayer by the Senate chaplain. Dr. Frederick Brown Harris, a eulogy by Taft's fellow Ohio senator, John W. Bricker; muted music and the national anthem by the Marine Band; a closing prayer by Dr. Bernard Braskamp, the House chaplain. Simple as these services may be, they have been held for only a dozen men in history, beginning with the martyred Lincoln. Twenty-three years ago, In March 1930, another Taft was honored thus— William Howard Taft, President, chief justice, and father of the senator. To offer the last accolades of official Washington, 900 persons were invited to the rites in the rotunda. MacArthur, a friend of Taft for years, Is flying from New York with his wife for the ceremony. Yesterday the people had their chance to give homage to "Mr. Republican," a man of stature climbed iteadlly up the broad M5t steps of the Capitol and streamed into the rotunda where JTaft lay In a bronw casket beneath a blanket of soft yellow roses. The lid was kept lowered because the family wanted it that way. most of them knew merely a« a name. LJd Lowered For nearly seven hours—from 1:47 p. m. to 8:03 p, rn.—they Hour after hour, on through the night an honor guard of soldiers, sailors. Marines and airmen, changing every half hour, kept vigil beside the bier. The Senate majority leader rested with head toward the west, an American flag at his right, the Ohio state flag his left. Two of the Capitol guides turned up in the line that filed past the coffin. So did several congressmen. But mostly just ordinary people strode by. Some had been waiting outside in the hot sun for an hour and a half, in a line stretching across the Capitol Plaza some 250 yards or so toward the Library of Congress. Gradually the line dissolved and tato COHWM didn't bm * wait. Taft'a body was flown from New York yesterday morning ta a Military Air Transport plane. Some of the family were aboard the plane, others met it at National Airport. The senator's ill widow and on* of the four sons, William Howard Taft III, were absent.

Step One: "We admitted we were powerless over alcohol, that our lives had become unmanagahle." No person is completely sufficient unto himself. But, when it comes to personal problems of our lives, our conciet gets in our way. We like to boast: "I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul." For example, take the alcoholic. He knows liquor is a problem for him, but he likes to boast he can stop whenever he really wants to. He sees others drinking who seem to be able to handle it, a^d his false pride refuses to let»'him confess he cannot do what someone else can.
