It was little noted at the time, •but when the Chief Executive sent his tax cut program to Congress he also asked for $468 million in new taxes on airlines, trucking firms and boat-owners. Today, nearly three months later, the new tax proposal is still languishing in the House Ways & Means Committee. A spokesman for the committee said he doubted there would be any action this year because of the crush of other business. Some observers believe this means the program, or at least part of it, is dead. Johnson contended that some of those who reap profits from federal services are not paying a fair share to support them. He said airlines are not assessed enough for the control of airways, trucking interests are not paying their share of road construction costs, and boat- owners'don't pay anything for the use of inland waterways. The administration's program would increase the highway diesel fuel tax from 4 to 7 cents per gallon, the truck use tax from $3 to $5 per thousand pounds and the tax on ; tread rubber from 5 to 10 cents per pound. Commercial aviation would pay new taxes of 2 per cent on freight charges and 2 cents per gallon on jet fuels; the 2-cent tax on aviation gasoline would be raised to 4 cents. In addition, the President asked for a 2 cents-per-gallon tax on fuel for any boat with a draft or more than 15 feet.

Cautious Optimism In Shipping Talks WASHINGTON (UPI) — Marathon negotiations Continued today among federal mediators, representatives of the American Merchant Marine Institute (AMMI).and officials of .marine unions in the 57-day-old shipping strike. At the close of Tuesday's talks, government sources said they were cautiously optimistic on prospects for a settlement. They added, however, that any agreement was a long way off. The strike has tied up a number of ships at East and Gulf Coast poits. The main issue in the dispute is the size of crews on automated ships. Spends $7,500 in Four Months— Habits FORT WAYNE, Ind.
