Blytheville (Ark.) Courier News — Monday, January 18, 1967 — Page Thre» 'Space Program Cut Could Stop Tax Raise WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen-, ate Republican Leader Everett M. Dirksen, looking for ways to avoid a tax increase, says the space program could be the place to cut government expenditures. Dirksen said "I've been looking at that space program, I don't mind telling you. Does it really make a difference whether we get to the moon this year, or next year, or the following year? "I doubt very much whether it makes a great deal of difference," he said Sunday on ABC's "Issues and Answers." "And if we reconcile ourselves to that thesis, then of course there is a place where you can make a very substantial (budget) cut." Sen. Russell B. Long, D-La., said Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation" that cuts in federal spending are the key to the tax issue. He said there "is no economic case" for the 6 per cent income tax surcharge asked by President Johnson. Long said it "would tend to retard the economy." He expressed doubt it would goon be approved. Five freshmen Republican senators said on the NBC television-radio program "Meet the Press" they would have to be shown there was no other way to finance the Vietnam war before they would vote for a tax increase. . The five are Sens. Charles H. Percy of Illinois, Mark 0. Hatfield of Oregon, Edward W. Brooke of Massachusetts, Howard H. Baker Jr. of Tennessee and Clifford P. Hansen of Wyoming. Over the Weekend, the government made public a mixed bag of economic statistics. The figures were topped by a record $739.5 billion production of goods and services during 1966, p $58.3 billion from the gross ational product of 1965 and nore than $17 billion ahead of he predictions made by Johnon a year ago. But 36 per cent of thai in- rease was chalked up to infla- .on. The figures also showed in- reasing inventories, frequently harbinger of economic down- urn. Inventories went from $9.9 illion in the third quarter to 14.4 billion in the fourth quar- r. * * * The physical volume of pro- luction during 1966 was up 5.4 ier cent, slightly below the 6 ier cent rise of 1965 which the government called "very trong."

Elsewhere on the government's economic front, congressional investigations into the Federal National Mortgage Association and Johnson's recent highway sending cutbacks were indicated. Chairman Wright Patman, D- Tex., of the House Banking Committee and Rep. William A. Barrett, D-Pa., chairman of the Housing subcommittee, questioned whether FNMA policies reflect adequate support of the housing money market. They said it was "high time that the Congress looked into" some FNMA policies. Sen. Jennings Randolph, D- Va., said his Public Works committee would begin hearings as soon as February into the effect of the 11% per cent highway cutback ordered as an anti-inflationary tool.

Huge numbers come in across the river from Tennessee. Dexter had this same problem a couple,of years ago and it was of such a nature that it received news coverage on one of the national TV networks which sent a reporter and camera crew to the town. Dexter since then has been sucessful in ridding itself of the birds. "You know, "we had the answer here all the time and didn't know it and it was the simplest thing to do. We got rid of the birds with flashing lights as used on the top of police cars, fire trucks and other such vehicles," one official said. It appeared that is using the plan at the Dexter roost, the city police department, fire department and Civilian Defense units cooperated in patrolling the roose area for a number of consecutive nights giving the starlings repeated doses of the Monday evening 5:30 SERENADE 1812 Overture, composed by Tchaikovsky, played by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. 6:30 WHAT'S NEW Roaming the Smithsonian.

Duncan said it is possible to chemically decontaminate the ground under the roosting trees, but the cost runs to around $600 per acre every time it is done, which is prohibitive. Caruthersville officials, as yet have no plans for eliminating their pesky problem. (Continued from Page One) the use of good space that could otherwise be used for posters.

Set to music , his thoughts Hirob through loudspeakers on xains, in cafes, parks, shops and even the customs shed on the Hong Kong border. I am the first British reporter ,o get into China since the cultural revolution flared into violence nearly two weeks ago, and my entry visa was for Canton only. I asked whether I could go to (iie north and was told: "There have been troubles in other parts of China. The situa- jon is not good there, particularly in the north." When I asked for details an official told me : "I cannot give state secrets to foreigners." Although the Red Guards are everywhere, fantastic pressures are bubbling up among the ordinary people and the guards themselves. * * ¥ The tension is bordering on mass hysteria. Everyone is being told constantly that this present fight against Kie class enemy rank with the October revolution. If you tell this to 700 million people long enough, someone will soon demand action. And when action comes thousands of innocent people will be the victims. That is the mood here, Volatile, hysterical, apprehensive. The city of three million now has another million strangers on its streets who have swarmed in from file countryside. They are all in their teens and 20s. They throng the pavements, discussing in impromotu' groups anc holding mass sing-songs. When I looked out of my bed' room window from the Yang. Cheng Hotel at 4:30 in the morn ing, they were still at it aboul 3,000 teen-agers, squatting on (Jie pavement, singing the thoughts of Mao. Although I saw long early morning queues at a centra food market, there did not appear to be shortages of vegeta- jles or fresh meat. The queues were of old women, apparently anxious to be first for the choicest cuts. The favorite dishes: monkey and dog meat. The hotel I stayed in had hot water only for an hour in the evening and again in the morn- ng. Though the thermometer was near freezing; room hea' was switched on for only three hours at bedtime. The public rooms were caver nous and echoing — what I cal Maybe our'GZPontiac is breaking sales records because people dontwantto waft until 1>8 for a copy. AT MISSION — Mr. and Mrs. Neal Suddard, who play a variety of musical instruments, will be at Mississippi County Union Mission tomorrow night and Sunday evening to help the Mission celebrate its llth birthday. 20th-century Communist Gothic. The bedrooms had the basic conveniences but no more. The lotel was built in 1960 but from ,ts design it could have been 30 years old. How do the Red Guards eat? Many are served at kitchens established in the closed schools and colleges. Others are invited into homes and communes as guests. * * * But such an influx of extra people must put a strain on the local economy. To me there was still some mystery how they all did find food, but none appeared to be hungry. The top song in China is called: "Sailing the Seas Depends on the Helmsman." There are two verses to a bouncy martial strain: Sailing the seas depends on the helmsman, The growth of everything depends on the sun, Fields of grain thrive on the rain and the dew, And making revolution depends on Mao Tse-tung's thought. Fish must live in the water, Melons grow on the land The revolutionary masses must have their party, Mao Tse- tung's thought is the never-setting sun." I've heard this so often now that I've got it on the brain and caught myself whistling the melody in the bath. Imagine its impact, then on under-fives who sing the words day in, day out in kindergarten until they are word-perfect for visitors. I saw singing and dancing at ,wo nursery schools and all was devoted exclusively to praising Mao. I thought with a shudder of Ihe old saying: "Get them under five and you've got them for life." Archbishop lakovcs Honored CHICAGO (AP) - Archbishop lakovos, spiritual leader of six million Greek Ortheodox faithful, was honored Sunday night at a banquet in Chicago. The dinner culminated celebration of "Archbishop lakovos Day" officially proclaimed in all 50 states of the nation. Services in his honor wera held in the 400 Orthodox churches in North and South America. He lias been head of the church in the Western Hemisphere for the past seven years. Attending the dinner was Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey, who said of the archbishop: "America is a much better country because of the spiritual leadership of this man."
