Wife Sees Killing, Pro-Leopoldists Are Blamed LIEGE. Belgium. Aug. 19. <>V> — Julicn Lahaut, -head of the Belgian lommunist Party, was shot to death at his home last night and Ihe official party newspaper charged today pro-I.eopoldi.sts were responsible for the assassination. His wife was a 'vitne.ss to the killing He was ridd' d by three bullets fired by one of two gunmen who drove up to the Lahaut home in a Liege suburb about 9:30 p.m. Mrs. Lahaut said the men. appearing about 20 years old. rang the bell and asked to speak to her husband.

Each bullet found its mark and Lahaut fell with two wounds in his head and one in his body. Police said the bullets were firert from either a revolver or s submachine gun.

"Approprmlcdiy adjusted" taxes on co-ops, mutual orgar.izatlonK and building and loan association^. 3. Plugging of more tax law loopholes to prevent some individuals and businesses from escaping taxation. The bill now pending would close some loopholes. General Overhaul 4.

George does not expect the second bill to raise further the taxes of normal income of individuals corporations, increases are pro- 'n--the. first measure which goes ;before" the Senate for a vote possibly late next week. 'Moreover." George said, "regardless of the merits of a general wholesale or retail sales tax, or a transaction tax, I do not think the finance committee or the S"ii- ate will approve such taxes in *.ie second bill." But he added that "if we really get into an all-out war. it might, be necessary to reconsider such taxes then."
