Such merging would still retain the individual entity of each of the present 157 local boards now located in the aforementioned 95 locations. Collocations, according to Mr. Rhodes, is the locating of two or more local boards at a single administrative site while maintaining their separate identity. Such consolidation would result in increased economy, efficiency and flexibility of operations, and better service to registrants. Under such a plan no location would have a part-time operation; thus rendering better service throughout the normal workweek to the registrants and to their families. The goal of the Selective Ser­ vice System is to have no location open less than full-time. Full-time local boards can provide a more comprehensive service to registrants and are usually more economical to operate; The optimal location will have two or more full-time employees, so that the location will, continue to operate when one clerk is sick or on vacation. Under such a plan, local board members and other uncompensated personnel wiU continue to. meet in their present areas. This will assure .the retention of the (Continued on page 8) Mini-Riders — Nineteen shiny new Honda Model 70 Trail Cycles arrived in Tipton this week for members of the Tipton County Shrine Club to start practicing on in order to be in form for the many parades Invited to this summer.

Local Option Tax May Face Strong Opposition By HORTENSE MYERS INDIANAPOLIS ( U P I ) Senate President Pro Tem Phillip Gutman said no effort will be made at today's caucus of Republican senators to measure support for a House-passed tax package. ' Gutman,. a Fort Wayne Republican, said serious consideration - by the Republican senators will not come until the entire package has passed the House and is in the hands of the Senate! "We' were promised four bills and we only have three,", Gutman said, referring to the fact the Senate has not yet received a local option tax bill that is part of the House Republican package. The three bills in the Senate Finance Committee are those • which double the sales tax and: increase individual" adjusted gross income tax by. one per cent and corporate income „ tax by three per cent. However, a local option tax biil that is part of the package appears to be in some difficulty'in the House. Both House majority Republicans and minority Democrats Tuesday discussed the local option bill amid indications the majority does not have enough votes for passage. Democratic minority leader Rep. Richard C. Bodine, D- Mishawaka,. said "a substantial majority" of the Democratic , representatives will not vote for the local option bill. He said, the caucus "discussed the Republican tax program and the ap­ parent [discrepancies in revenue which jwe told them two weeks ago were in there." Taylor Says Figures High • Budget Director Thomas Taylor earlier Tuesday had disclosed that a review by his staiff indicated the House anticipations of revenue from the three bills increasing sales, in- dividus! income'• and corporate taxes were as much as $160 million too high. Bodine said minority members of the House Ways and Means Committee advised that the budget deficit is as much as $131.2 million if only present sources, of revenue are available, Since Indiana cannot have a . deficit budget, something would have to give.
