PAGE TWELVE (ARK.) COUIUER WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1950 Excise Tax Cuts Enter Oleo Fight Dairy State Senators Split on Move to Tie Proposal* Together WASHINGTON, Jan. II—('Pi- Dairy State Senators were split today over bringing; excise lax cuts into the Senate oleoniargmmo-vs- butter scrap, Tlielr ranks crackfd when Senators Humphrey (D-Minn) and Magnuson (D-Wnsh) spurned a move lo tie repeal of wartime excise taxes to legislation to ernse federal oleomargarine taxes. Unhappy over Die breach, Senator Wiley (R-Wls) talked about exploring for some sort or compromise betore the issues come to a vole. Wiley is loading a fight In (he Senate to ban yellow colored oleomargarine from jnterslnle commerce, although going along with repeal of federal laves on H. Yellow margarine Is taxed 10 cents a pound, the uucolorrd product one-quarter cent a pound. Occupational taxes also are levied on manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers. Wiley's proposal, in the form of a sbtistllute for the House-])<l tax repeal bill ,is spon.sored also b? 24 other Senators who contend that yellow oleomargarine is a deceptive imitation of butter. Wiley accepted yesterday as part of his substitute an amendment by senator Butler <R-Neb) to reduce excise taxes on such items as furs, jewelry, luggage, telephone bills, admissions and transportation tickets and by an estimated 5028,- OOO.MO. This stirred protests from Humphrey an Magnuson. who are a- inong the sponsors of the substitute. Humphrey referred lo the attempt to take on excise tai cuts or civil rights riders as a "parliamentary trick" and "beneath the table strategyto kill off the oleo bill." Magmison said supporters of the substitute proposal will set more- votes If they do not "resort to legislative maneuvering by attacking excise cuts or civil rights amendments." No civil rights amendments have b?en offered to the bill hut reports persist that some Senators may do so.

Jueer Short Hairs Aid Locusts When Flying LONDON — M')— Locusts I'.ive qucon sliort liairs on their heads which give them directions when flying. This discovery Is reported In "Nature," the official British science Journal, by T. Wcls-Fogh, of oentoftc, Denmark. The hairs are queer because they do not vibrate in the wind as do other hairs on a locust. These merely bend. Something In their structure prevents fast waving motions. !)y the angle- nl which these hairs bend a locust knows how much he is turning away irom a straight line. When lie is flying straight the wind bends the hair straight back. Australia Is staging a campaign to curtail the mistletoe which kills many of that continent's forest trees.
