ftiffiru'Wr, THE LAST 3 MONTHS A MILLION BABIES HAVE BEEN BORN IN THE U. S.—LIKE THE OLD SAYING: 'FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!' Agreement Reached on Tax Cutting New Measure Will Reach House Monday WASHINGTON — /p — Senate and House conferees agreed today on final terms Of a $4,000,000.000-a-year jlttcome tax cut to take effect July Iv The measure provides for individual slashes ranging from 10.6,percent to 80 percent. The Senate bill was accepted by the conferees except for one change in rate fediictio7i brackets. The area of 15 percent cuts was made effective fi'om $136,720 of taxable income of $302,400. The Senate had provided for a 16 percent, reduction .between $72,760 and $302,000. , Senator Millikln (R-Colo), head tot the Senate conferees, stild both Houses would expedite final action on the legislation. It is expected to come up In the House Monday, and possibly later the same day In the Senate. The big question remaining is .whether President Truman will sign or veto the -tax cuts. He has maintained that the present is not a suitable time, for reducing government revenue. Mllllkln estimated the change in the 15 percent reduction bracket will add $62,300,000 to the cost of the bill, in terms of lost federal revenue. Senate Democratic Leader Barkley was the only one of the five Senate conferees who. did not sign the conference report. He voted against the bill yesterday when it passed the Senate 52 to 34. If both Houses act finally Mon- 'day the bill will be speeded to the Y/hite House. . President Truman then would have .10 days to approve or veto it. He has given no recent indication of his intentions, although he '•has said repeatedly that he does . not-consider this the proper time to cut taxes. "->•':. Even the most enthusiastic Re. publican advocates; of an immediate tax reduction admitted that yesterday's 52-34.' vote offered no . hope that a veto could be over- riden in. the Senate. A two-thirds .. majority is necessary to override. As'amended by the Senate, the bill provides for the following cuts '•,,,.!& present taxes, over a full year: : ' , 30 percent off for persons whose .Incomes after exemptions and de- P' ''ISM.

Pcpiu tetephoncd Matthews yesterday afternoon and informed him he would arrive sometime nexl week, but did not state which day. The new city engineer is well-acquainted with the city's water and paving problems and has a thorough knowledge of caliche supplies available for paving bases, the Commission was told. Pepin -will have charge of all engineering work oi the water, sewer and street departments, He will move here from Loi; Angeles with his wife and one child. Pepiu served hero with the city flnd county for 18. months prior to enlisting in the Army from Gray County and coming out of service with th9 rank of captain. The problem of making the present municipal airport a permanent installation for the city may be a possibility with the Civil Aeronautics Authority lending a helping hand financially. This was disclosed during a combined session of the Commission, a group of operating pilots, headed by Roy A- Webb, Jr., and J. D. Church of the CAA tliis morning. Church advised the group the CAA had $18,QOO set aside in its budget for improvements in the Pampa Municipal Airport. He said -the money can bo used to help purchase land and construct buildings for the general use of the airport with the exception of hangars and living quarters. The OAA can aid up to 3§ percent of the land aquisi- tion costs and 50 percent of building construction costs such as ad- bu.iUiir.gs, .utility lines, the city's growth in that tUrectlon because p| building height restriction? adjacent to landing strips held up any 1 specific decision of the Commission this morning, although Church told them a definite status, on the field mus^ be had by the CA.A within, a Jew days. £h,e Kjvrfflsittojft i§ to be'cousldered House Passes Natural Gas Tax Bill for Texas' Rural Roads AUSTIN—(/Pi—The Conference Committee report on departmental appropriation bill will probably be ready for consideration Monday morning, Capt. C. S. McLellan of Eagle Lake told the House of Representatives today. With the conference report on the biennial appropriation for higher education also reported nearly ready for House and Senate study, there was a strong possibility that the 5th Legislature would be ready for final adjournment by the end of next week—or earlier. Proponents of new taxes apparently have little chance for success, although the House today formally urged the Senate and Gov. Beauford H. Jester to approve the House- passed natural gas tax bill lor rural Colonel Who Took Home 'Souvenirs' Given 10 Years YOKOHAMA —(/P)— Edward J Murray, a colonel of Infantry who won his decorations in combat heard an Army court martini sentence him to ten years imprisonment for misappropriation of a for- tun6 in diamonds he had taken home as "souvenirs of war ..." Murray stood silent, shoulders sagging, as 'the sentence was read. The Palo Alto, Calif., officer was convicted of all six specifications filed against him—covering misappropriations of the stones and failure to declare them or pay customs on them. In addition to serving ten years at hard labor, he was ordered dismissed from the service with forfeiture ol all pay and allowances, Although the Jewels he was charged with taking during his custodianship of the Bank of Japan vaults were valued at first at $210,000, the Court reduced this to $92,000. Murray himself, in the only statement he made to the Court,'said he was ignorant of the diamond's value until after he had taken them home in March, 1946, and a dia- mancl broker offered his wife "a price which astonished her by its size." "To the best of my knowledge," liis written statement asserted, the diamonds "were never in the cus- :ody of the United States" until himself handed them over to customs officials who had challenged and searched him in San Francisco. Oddly, he had brought all of the See COLONEL, Page 5 $35,000 Will Be Given Away Here Around $35,000 will be given away here at 0:30 tomorrow morning. Well, not exactly. You see, the Junior Cham-" ber of Commerce had about "$35,000" in •"rasbucknicks" left Iron; the . carnival the other day. (That is another nanfe for phony money.) Jaycea oificials said today that if the kids wanted the bogus mnzuma to play with, they can " get it by going to Boyles Nash, 1J4 S. Frost, at that time tomorrow, roads. McLellan indicated the departmental appropriation for the next two years, as recommended in the conference report, would be in the neighborhood of $12,000,000. He said a few details remained to be worked out before the bill could be mimeographed and placed on representatives' desk's. The departmental bill is expected to fall slightly under the Senate's recommendation of $43,140.177. At 842.000,000 it would exceed the current appropriation by some $14,000,000. An appropriation of approximately $45,000,000 for higher education Is anticipated. This' would be a sharp reduction from the House recommendation of $58,797,101. Conference committee members say that elimination of appropriations for building purposes are responsible for the cut. The issue of taxation recurred in 1 the House today when Rep. E. O. Chapman of Sulphur Springs urged "tho Senate and the governor to See GAS TAX, I'ag:e 5 Pampa Vets to Hold Memorial Day Service Under a flag flying at half mast at 3 p. m. tomorrow, members of Pampa veterans organizations will hold Memorial Day services for the dead around the new flag pole in Fairview Cemetery. In addition to offices listed yesterday, the Area Rent Office at 113!i S. Cuyler will be closed all day tomorrow, Frank Fata, manager, said this morning. Cities and towns over tlie state will close their business houses and offices for Memorial Day services as salute volleys and taps echo against the country side. An A.P. dispatch quoted General Jonathan M. Walmvright, hero of Bataan, as saying: "This will be ny last Memorial Day as an officer on the active list of the Army. I ask that you. pause with me. to >ay homage to those who died so hat this country might preserve ts freedom." Tlie General will re- ire from active service as com- nander of the Fourth Army this 'ear, after he makes his final Memorial Day message tomorrow in San Antonio. WASHINGTON — <.!•> — Con- gressirnal conferees on legislation designed to check strikes and labor union activities reached final arcoril today on a compromise bill. An agreement to scrap a House provision which would have rx- i hided food processors from col- Irctive bargaining; rights was the last action taken by the conferees before returnhiR the measure to the House and Senate for further action. Senator Taft R-Ohio) told reporters- the committee decided to remove this controversial section from the final draft and leave the matter to interpretation by the National Labor Relations Board. This means it. continues a matter of dispute so far as thn NLBH and the courts arc concerned. Taft reported the compromise bill WBS approved by seven of the 10 conferees. The final draft goes to the House nnd Senate for ratification, then to the White House for Mr. Truman's decision. Congress probably vvill not act until early next week. The compromise bill contains these provisions: 1. Authorisation for the government to obtain injunctions to block ''national paralysis" strikes, such as a coal or sleccl tic-up. Tho injunctions would remain in effect 80 days while the dispute was mediated. 2. A new National Labor Relations Board set-up. The board would have five members instead of three as now. 3. A ban on the closed shop, under which employers can hire only union members. The more common union shop is permitted when a majority of workers vote for it. 4. A prohibition against jurisdictional strikes and secondary boycotts. The NLRB could get injunctions to block them. 5. A provision creating a new Federal Mediation Agency, independent of' the Labor Department. 6. Health and welfare funds set up since January 1, 1946, and administered solely by unions, arc outlawed. 7. Parties to a collective bargaining contract must serve notice 60 days in advance of expiration of the pact If they with to change its terms. 8. It would be an unfair labor practice for unions to keep non- striking workers from their jobs by mass picketing or through the violence in picketiung. 9. Unions are prohibited from charging dues and initiation fees which the NLUB judges to be "excessive or discriminatory." 10. Another House section accepted by the Senate, with modifications, bars unions from forcing an employer to pay wages to men who do not work on a job but who arc kept, at the union's insistence, on a standby basis.

This would represent a compromise between the British desire for as large a jody as possible and the U. S. leaning; toward a smaller group.

New industries, lowered freight rates and a small but steady rise in employment indicate that Texan.', will, remain prosperous in the summer months, the TUCC said. Employment opportunities improved generally during April with the increase in spring hiring and forecasts for June "from the~17 prin-' cipal labor market areas show a continued uptrend in employment. In addition fo the seasonal rise lit-. construction aiut agricultural employment, the TUCC said it expected more workers will be needed in food processing, lumber, stone- elny-glass, machinery and aircraft industries. Texas is also continuing its upward swing towards industrialization, the TUCC reported During April 112 new industries were established, creating jobs for an additional 3,350 persons. Construction led the way in increased job openings, but the ex- pectod building boom failed to materialize. Homo construction is slowing down bpcauso of high costs, but commsrcial and industrial building has speeded up, thevTUCO said.
