Will Continue To Help, Pay His Debt, Too DETROIT W) -- Julian Hermanowski, a man whose heart was bigger than his pocketbook, pledged today to continue helping refugees from Europe--and to pav off his debts. The 56-year-old nightwatchman, who told a bankruptcy court recently that he had helped 293 Polish displaced persons to come to the United States, took Referee Harry G. Hackett S443.75 Thursday to apply on his bills. He said 80 persons had contributed after reading of his plight in newspapers. Hermanowski. who said he applied S41 of his S67 weekly pay to his debts, had an itemized account of his contributions and insisted he'd pay back the donations later on. Hermanowski applied to bankruptcy court when he found himself unable to repay 53,170 he had borrowed to help bring displaced persons from Europe. Hermanowski said he spent five 3 r ears in Nazi concentration camps in Germany and when liberated in 1945 found his family had been wiped out. He came to Detroit in 1950 and said since then he had helped finance other displaced persons seeking to reach the Unitd States.

Being Hunted GRAND BLANC (S--State police called off road blocks in the Flint area today after failing to trap an armed man who robbed the First State and Savings Bank of Grand Blanc. Troopers said the gunman escaped Thursday with between S4,- 000 and 35,000 dollars in Canadian currency and mutilated American money. "He might as well have a sack of S3 bills," a trooper said. "That money will be easily spotted in this area." The tattered American money was to be retired from circulation. The Canadian currency is conspicuous except in border cities. H. C. Hall cf Holly, assistant manager of the bank, said the gunman waited until customers left and then pulled a gun and demanded money. Hall scooped up loose cash from two teller windows and gave it to the gunman who fled in a car. Grand Blanc is about six miles south of Flint on U. S. 10.

Trio Held on Robbery Count DETROIT W)--A man who told police he planned a 5500,000 robbery of a diamond salesman Nov. 19 was held today, along with two brothers he said carried out the stickup. Police Inspector William Ford said Philip F. DePalma, 39. of Detroit, told officers he masterminded the tear gas assault and holdup and named two brothers, Stanley Novak and Tom Novosiel- ski. both Detroiters, as the men who carried it out. No formal charge was placed against any of the trio. Both brothers, Ford said, denied any knowledge of the holdup and a search of their home turned up no gems or large sums of cash. Ford "said Novak had changed the family spelling of his name. DePalma walked into a precinct station Thursday, Ford said, and ·told detectives he knew about the Nov. 19 holdup of Max Monderer, 47, of New York. DePalew, who said he was a jewelry salesman, told police he had not seen the diamonds since the holdup, although it was originally planned that he would dispose of them. Monderer said the jewels were insured for 3300,000 with Lloyd's of London. Satellite Continued from Page One tional delays. The final two hours before a launching are the most critical and frequently develop the most unexpected delays. It was anybody's guess as to when the Vanguard rocket might finally take off into space. The weather looked favorable. Scattered clouds started clearing after daybreak and the outlook was that wind would be moderate. The reasons for the delays were not announced but they could be guessed at. There were endless numbers of things that could go wrong at the last moment. The launching site itself is closed to newsmen, not because the Vanguard project is secret--it is not--but because an assortment of secret militarj- missiles is in the area, awaiting testing along the 5,000-mile range from Cape Canaveral to Ascension Island. The intent is to hurl a small aluminum ball 300 miles or more into space and set it spinning around the world. One of the major technical difficulties was a stubborn, leaky disconnect valve to a liquid oxygen tank. Even more important, brisk low-level winds and high speed jet streams in the upper altitudes presented any s l o w l y rising, heavy and slender rocket such as the Vanguard with the danger of being broken in two. Production Softening in Car Assemblies Due DETROIT Wl -- Ward's Reports reported today a "production-softening" in U. S. passenger car assemblies scheduled for December, saying volume originally planned for the month had beer, cut back 6.8 per cent. The agency said there would be no letdown in truck production and that "a resurgence in heavy-duty model ordering is putting new strength in truck industry operations." Based on revised December schedules, Ward's said 1957 will see 6,158,000 passenger cars built this year, against an industry goal originally set at 6,200,000. Intangibles Tax Is Called 'Dud' LANSING UP)--The chairman of a citizen tax study committee says Michigan's tax law on intangibles--such items as stocks, mortgages and bank deposits -- is a "dud." That was the appraisal of Frank Seidman, Grand Rapids accountant, after hearing a report on operation of the state intangibles law Thurs_day by Dr. Milton C. Taylor, Michigan State University economist. As long as Michigan has no income tax, Seidman said, the intangibles law should be altered to produce more revenue and lessen the burden on property taxes. Seidman is chairman of a citizen advisory committee named to help a legislative committee headed by Rep. Rollo G. Conlin (R-Tipton) to conduct a through-going study of Michigan's tax structure. Taylor's report on the intangibles tax is the first of some two dozen surveys of various aspects of the tax picture which are being readied by 15 researchers from four state universities. Some time next year the group expects to make some recommendations aimed at guiding state tax policies. Seidman, stressing he was speaking as an individual rather than committee chairman, pointed out that the intangibles tax brought in about 23 million dollars last year while property taxes amounted to 563 million. "Yet," he added, "the intangible wealth of this state is estimated to be far in excess of its tangible wealth. "No one can say that this is a fair system of taxation or that it equitably distributes the burden, or that it in any way conforms to the ability-to-pay principle." Union Warned On Use of Funds A warning against improper use of local union funds was issued today by Peter Bensoni of G i 1 ·?. international representative for the United Steelworkers of America on the Gogebic Range. Bensoni said that under the union's international constitution and the ethical practices code adopted bv the organization it is improper for locals to purchase gifts for all members of the local out of the local's treasury. Pointing out that the "dues dollar" is intended for promoting the general welfare of the local and conducting legitimate functions o£ the organization, Bensoni said, the locals are permitted to continue their ordinary social functions, but that "purchasing of Christmas gifts for everybody is not consistent with the constitution and tha ethical practices code." He noted, however, that locals are permitted to purchase gifts for members who are ill, retired members, widows of members and other needy persons. Bensoni warned that any 1 o cat officers who make improper purchases would be subject to suspension as officers and liable for reimbursing the union treasury from their personal assets. He also warned area merchants that any mass gift orders made by local officers would not have proper authorization. Bensoni said he informed the Peterson mine local this week that it could not carry out a plan lo purchase Christmas turkeys for all members of the local. He said the members of the local had previously voted authorization for the purchase of the turkeys and in order to forestall the purchases he had taken away the books of the local's treasurer. During the meeting with the Peterson local, Bensoni explained and made reference to letters signed by top officials of the union which each local received in June and October of this year. He also noted that each local has received copies of the ethical practices code regarding the spending of umoa funds.

Taylor's 56-page study showed that Ohio's intangibles tax rate is S5.40 per capita compared with S2.60 in Michigan, S1.80 in Pennsylvania and S1.08 in Illinois. Clarence W. Lock, deputy revenue commissioner, told the group that his office collects about 90 taxes. By spending another 000 for auditing personnel, he said, the state likely would pick up another 2% million from those who pay only part or none of their share.
