But tell a home-buyer that the I President is to blame for higher WASHINGTON (UPI)-Advo-cates of a tax increase have a new rallying cry "Let's roll back high interest rates." Not long ago they were crying "high prices," but the recent slowdown in the cost lof living especially in food costs and the economy's significant cooling in the second quarter have robbed the price cry of some of its Defense Bill WASHINGTON (UPI) The House began debate today on a $58.6 billion defense money bill, described by a key member as a "signal to Hanoi" that the United States will not tire and leave Viet Nam. 7 Chairman George Mahon, of the House Appropria, tions Committee said it would be "the height of folly" if North Vietnamese leaders misread the signal.

Heme, car and personal loans cost the borrower substantially more than a year ago.

Attendants at Sunrise Hospital would release no information other than to report Mrs.

Skelton's condition was satisfactory. The sheriffs report said the bullet entered the victims left breast and may have struck the lung.

and Ls have got the worst of the interest rate war with the result that home loans are not only, more expensive but sometimes unobtainable. It was with the high interest rates in mind that Sen. Jacob K. Javits has urged President Johnson to recommend an income tax increase that would take between $5 billion and $7 billion of spending money out of the hands of consumers and businessmen. Javits was critical of Johnson for relying almost entirely on tight money and high interest rates to restrain the booming U.

Brimmer, the newest member of the Federal Reserve Board, told a Boston audience that in the absence of an income tax increase "serious consideration" should be given to temporary suspension of the tax credit businessmen get for i i in new plant and equipment.

Like Javits, Brimmer said tight money "is not enough" to keep the lid on the economy. As a political issue, high interest rates are potentially more damaging to the Johnson administration than high prices. Tell a housewife that Johnson is to blame for bacon costing -LAS VEGAS, Nev.

As a Utah state senator he espoused bills which would have lowered the legal age for purchasing cigarettes, permitted restaurants to serve wine with meals and allowed liquor to be sold by the drink. All of them failed, causing him to introduce his "virtue bill," he said. The Reno man said his liquor-by-the-drink bill in a state heavily populated by Mormons re? suited in 10,000 letters.

'The controversy has been going on for more than a year as residents of the area have complained, excessive noise and violations of the number of helicopter flights agreed on.
