(UP.) — R*p, Francis Oue, R., 8. D., proposed today that personal Income laic exemptions be doubled to off- 'ttt-. higher living costs which he laid, will serult from the foreign aid program. "It 'arenas apparent," Case said, •that the additional foreign aid bill Ic going to pass without any effective provision to check the Inflationary effects." The American Bar Association recommended congressional approval of a nationwide community property tax plan. The association proposed to the House Ways and Means Committee that the plan be voluntary. Under the proposal, which has many supporters among both. Republicans and Democrats, a husband and wife could divide their Income for tax purposes. Tills would have the effect of reducing their taxes somewhat. Case introduced legislation to boost tax exemptions to $1,000 for single persons and $2,000 for married couples. Present exemptions are $500 per person. Ways and Means Committee, tax experts said the Case proposal would lop 24,000,000 of the nation's 48.000,000 income taxpayers from the tax roll. They estimated it would cut federal revenue by about $7,000.000,000. Case said a boost of 100 In ex eruptions as proposed in ' a $4,000.000,000 tax cut measure drafted by Chairman Harold Knut-wn of the Ways and Means Committee "doesn't -go far enough." "There must be an easing of the cost of living," case added. "This is one way to help. People with small Incomes should not be taxed twice-^-once in the higher prices for what they need to eat and again with a federal Income lax as soon as their net income exceeds »500." Republican leaders also were studying a plan whereby individuals would get income tax reduction in the form of bonds to be cashed at some future time Spa Police Chief Row Rushed to Supreme Court UTTLX ROCK, Ark., DM.

Meanwhile, Hot Springs City Attorney Julian Glover and Callahan'* personal attorney, Walter Hebert, announced they will ask the high court for an order prohibiting Huff from' sitting as acting chancellor on the injunction. The legal mix-up gained fever pitch Friday when Judge Brown dismissed the petition for an In- 'Junctlon and cited Maner for contempt for failure to appear at a hearing on the case. However, Brown agreed to with hold execution of his orders on the contempt citation pending outcome of the high court hearing. The Civil Service Commission, which had approved Callahan's appointment by Mayor Earl Ricks, resigned over the weekend after contending that » mayor could appoint hi* own police chief.

But American officials admit It would be "terrific propaganda" and that stems to be Molotov's major, objective here. Barring such a move by the Hus- slans, however, the conference appears doomed to the same kind of, failure as the last one in Moscow. ' Th« Big Four probably will Insist on running through the agenda at least once and then will engage In a sparing match for several days to determine how to adjourn. This will be the battle in which the East and West will try to put the blame on each other for the failure of the conference.
