WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 1964 $1.50 Per Month Sixteen Pages JO Cent* Wmfn Johnson to sign tax cut bill Senate vote 74-19 j WASHINGTON* (UPI) — The Senate by a "4-19 vote gave lineal congressional approval today !to tlie giant S11.5 billion tax cut bill. President Johnson will sign it later today to statt paycheck | increases flowing to millions ot |wage earners by next week. I The White House announced 1 i that 15 minutes after the President signs the measure at a i3:30 p.m. PST ceremony, he •will speak to the nation on the ; benefits he expects the bill to i bestow on the nation"s economy. I The 3:45 p.m. EST radio and i television broadcast will be car- |ried by all major networks. I either live or by tape. 1 On the final Senate vote, 53 Democrats and 21 Republicans voted for the bill while 10 Democrats and 9 Republicans voted against. The long-sought administration measure will mean an average S4 to S5 weekly paycheck boost for individual workers and lower corporation taxes for thousands of business firms. In signing the bill today. Johnson makes it possible for the benefits of the income tax reductions to begin with paychecks received next Wednesday. This will come about because of a 4 point drop in payroll withholding rates. By a vote of 326 to 83. the | House stamped its final approv- ial Tuesday on the tax measure | which is a compromise between ; the original S11.2 billion House land a $11.8 billion Senate ver- jsions. The first benefits of the massive election-year tax cuts will be felt quickly by millions of wage earners, starting late next {week if Johnson signs the meas- jure immediately. Payroll withholding rates will drop eight days after it is signed from 18 per cent to 14 per cent, resulting in fatter paychecks averaging about $4 to S5 a week for many taxpayers. Johnson is counting on the, | American consumer to act nat- 'urally and spend 97 cents of every SI he gets in tax cuts, thereby pumping S27 million a day into the economy. In sum. the sweeping tax reduction and reform program is the cornerstone of the administration's entire budget structure for the coming fiscal year and the foundation for Johnson's I forecasts of good times ahead. Two-thirds of the cuts for individuals are effective this year retroactive to Jan. 1. and the j remainder on Jan. 1. 1955. When '. fully effective, the average U.S. i taxpayer will have his tax bill ; cut by about 19 per cent.

Baker, former S19.600 a-year secretary to Senate Democrats amassed a personal fortune, while serving in the sensitive! post. The senators are delving into how he did it and whether fear was expressed that they "hurt someone." This testimony was given in the 12th day of the federal trial by James Robert Irwin, brother of defendant John William Ir win, 42. He identified the other two defendants Barry Worthing ton Keenan and Joseph Clyde Amsler, both 23, as the ones who became panicky.

U.S. Weather Bureau Noon Forecast During the past two days a weak cold front has moved southward through (he Western slates and is now located well to the south and east of South era California. As the colder air mass moved through the area Tuesday, temperatures showed substantial drops. However, with sunny weather daytime readings will be a little higher over the north and west sections of Southern California today and over most inland area Thursday. Surface winds over Southern California have diminished but in the mountain and desert areas there will be locally gusty northerly winds through today. The outlook for Friday is for fair weather with little change in temperatures. Lowest temperatures in coldest fruit frost key stations in Southern California will be 27 degrees.

John said he Russian scientist to set up Cuban satellite post MOSCOW (UPI) — The Soviet Union today sent a leading scientist to set up a satellite ob servation station in Cuba. The official Soviet news agen cy Tass reported that Nikolai Yerpyiev, scientific secretary of the U.S.S.R. Academy of Sci ence, left to "start the preliminary stage of the work." Tass said the trip is taking place in accordance with a cooperation agreement between the Soviet and Cuban Academies of Science. Tass said equipment for the station, "in particular chronometers and astronomical instruments." has already been sent to Cuba. Frost follows slight rain There was a coating of crisp, white frost on the rooftops of many Redlands homes this morning in the wake of a mild storm yesterday which dropped only .04 inch of rain. But as the clouds left, colder, moist air moved in and the mercury dropped to 33 degrees during the night. There was some snow in the mountains but it was mixed with rain and did little to boost winter sports. No area in the county had more than .11 inch of rain and most had nearer the Redlands total. Some points in Riverside county, including the city of Riverside, had only a trace or none at all. newsmen "this committee — no one" has the right to invade the privacy of his client. However, Erlich said he did not object to televising the hearing as did Edward Bennett Williams, Baker's attorney, at Tuesday's session. Cameras were barred during Baker's testimony, but his remarks were broadcast on radio and television. Refuses To Answer Among the questions Baker refused to answer was one on whether Miss Tyler and Elly Rometsch, glamorous wife of a German soldier stationed here, accompanied him on a business trip outside Washington Earlier testimony also indicated that Miss Tyler, on at least one occasion, helped to count a sizable amount of cash taken from a file cabinet in Baker's Capitol office. Baker's refusal to answer and provide documents Tuesday could lead to contempt of Con- ress proceedings, a possibility mentioned by Sen. Joseph S. Clark, D-Pa., but any such action will await the committee's deliberations after it has heard more witnesses. stop in motion.

He was very concerned that someone would possibly be hurt in this whole process." James testified that his broth er told him that he was the one who released young Sinatra early on the morning of Dec. 11. Under direct examination by prosecutor Thomas R. Sheridan, the witness was asked, "Did your brother at any time use the word hoax in his conversation?" "No, at no time," said James. Sheridan also asked, "Did your brother at any time use the words publicity stunt in his conversation?" "No, at no time," replied James. Fight causes traffic jam in Orange ORANGE (UPI)—A five-hour traffic jam and small fights were caused Tuesday night at a drive-in theater by heavyweight championship fight fans —both those who paid to watch the closed circuit television showing and those motorists who parked on the highway outside for a free show. A crowd roughly estimated at 20,000 persons were jammed in and around the drive-in theater. The congestion — and possibly the outcome of the bout—led to small fights and beer can throwing, but police, highway patrolmen and sheriffs deputies made no arrests. The guardsmen moved in when a "control group" of 15 demonstrators violated a ban on demonstrations and all of them were taken into protective custody.

The first stage of the Mariposa school will house approximately 300 students. But Supt. H. Fred Heisner said architect C.

These, and plans for a multipurpose building are expected to be ready in about two months. | WASHINGTON (UPI) - A Dr. Heisner said it is doubtful; week-long union boycott against that the Mariposa classrooms!wheat shipments to the Soviet Wheat being loaded for Russia BS boycott ends will be ready by September and that plans now arc to house the first five grades in separate classrooms at Kimberly until their own classrooms are ready. He said present plans call for sixth grade .Mariposa students to continue to attend Smiley next year. Officials "slip" on icy streets WASHINGTON (UPI) — District of Columbia officials slipped Tuesday on ice- less streets. With the forecast for several inches of snow, they had numerous steep hills in the nation's capital coated with salt to make the snow melt as it hit the ground. But it didn't snow. The forecast was changed Tuesday night to "clearing and warmer." Union dissolved today with announcement in Texas that a group of longshoremen will begin loading Russia-bound grain in Houston this afternoon. A spokesman for the Conti- tinental Grain Co., said he was notified that loading operations will begin by the International Longshoremen's Association. The grain is being shipped aboard the Turkish ship Urn- ran, the spokesman said. Five Russia-bound wheat ships have been lying idle in both Houston and Galveston, Tex. The announcement of the boycott's end came from the White House Tuesday night. President Johnson also ordered that — without exception — at least half the cargoes go in American vessels. White House sources said that "to avoid any misunderstanding or difficulty in the future" the President had ordered that "no waivers whatever" be permited in granting licenses for wheat' sales. bleeding from Hoover's right kidney, his temperature was normal, and he was in no pain. "He is still having some respiratory difficulty due to his pulmonary infection." the bulletin said. "This latter seens to be responding to therapy. He is, alert and taking nourishment by' mouth." I The team of three doctors said they were "pleased" by Hoover's improvement. The doctors had announced Tuesday night that hemorrhaging in the right kidney had stopped by nightfall. But the respiratory infection had caused Hoover to have a "restless day." Desert murder remains mystery PHOENIX, Ariz savage double slaying of a middle - aged man and woman whose mutilated bodies were found on the desert not far from A r i z o n a's Superstition Mountains remained a mystery today. Sheriffs deputies were still trying to find clues to the identity of the victims, whose throats had been slashed and their bodies beaten and stabbed when rock hunters came across the remains Monday. Homicide detectives theorized the couple had been on a camping trip and probably were taking a nap when they were slain —either Saturday or Sunday. Fresh tire marks at the scene helped support one theory that they had been traveling with a camper rig, which the killer might have driven away. ' Boycott leaders claimed victory over opposing Negro leaders who had spoken against the boycott. The Chicago boycott is sponsored by the Coordinating Council of Community Organizations (CCCO) in protest of alleged segregation and to back up renewed demands for the resignation of schools Supt. Benjamin C. Willis. The boycott got no help from the Chicago Urban League, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People or the Catholic Interracial Council. School officials said the boycott was about 20 per cent less effective than a massive stay-at- home protest staged four months ago. Negro leaders have pledged to carry out a school boycott in Boston today despite warnings of possible prosecution. Boycott leaders said the boycott is "to (UPI) —The:keep Negroes out of the soup lines in 1984." They allege de facto segregation in Boston schools. Crew abandons ship in English Channel PORTSMOUTH, England (UPI)—The 28-man crew of tha Panamanian steamer Cissoula abandoned ship in the English Channel Tuesday night after the vessel collided with an unidentified ship. The Royal Navy said the entire crew was picked up by the Swedish ship Halleran. The other vessel in the collision disappeared in the dense mist, a navy spokesman said.
