UNIFAX Dixie Democrats Join Republicans Against Tax Cut WASHINGTON (UPI) — Conservative Southern Democrats were reported today swinging to support of a proposed Republican anti-spending amendment to President Kennedy's $11 billion tax cut bill.

GOP to Tell About Stand On Tax BUI WASHINGTON (AP) - Republicans tell the nation tonight and Saturday their side of the tax story—why they feel Congress should not cut taxes without a brake on spending. The reply to President Kennedy's radio and television appeal for his $ll-billion tax cut program will be launched this evening by Rep. John W. Byrnes of Wisconsin. Byrnes' talk will be carried by the ABC and CBS television and radio networks at 6 p.m. today and by Mutual radio at 6:35 p.m. Rep. Thomas B. Curtis of Missouri will speak on NBC television and radio at 6 p.m. Saturday. Curtis is senior Republican House member of the Joint Economic Committee and also serves on the Ways and Means Committee. The tax cut comes up for House action next week. It would trim both corporate and personal taxes, with the first phase of a two-part reduction set to take effect on Jan. 1. Rep. Byrnes, Republican member of the Ways & Means Committee which recommended the bill on a split vote, will ask the House to make the cut contingent on two specific economy steps. First, Kennedy would have to submit to Congress in January a revised budget for the rest of the current bookkeeping year which ends June 30, projecting total outlays of not more than $97 billion. This is about $1 billion less than the spending now planned. Second, the President in projecting spending for the fiscal year which starts July 1 would have to propose a budget of not more than $98 billion. This, too, is less than is now considered likely.

Rahman scheduled nationwide radio broadcasts tonight to tell Malaysia's 10 million people of developments in the crisis. He was expected to explain the "state of preparedness" ordered Wednesday, which called up reserves, strengthened the armed forces, and put civil defense measures into effect.

Pickets Wave Signs at JFK OnWaytoUN NEW YORK (AP) - President Kennedy saw pickets for various causes waving placards as he drove today from his hotel to address the United Nations. Some of the signs blamed him in the killing of six Negro children in Birmingham last Sunday, four of them by a bomb. Most of the pickets gathered in Hammarskjold Plaza outside the United Nations headquarters. The signs carried slogans such as "Kennedy is to blame," "Mr. JFK, if Caroline and John Jr. had been among the six children murdered, would you still be talking?", and "Arm Negroes for self defense." Pickets described themselves as representing such organizations as the Congress of Racial Equality, the Socialist Workers party, Progressive Labor Movement, Young Socialist Alliance, National Committee for Freedom Now party the "Birmingham Group," and Youth Against War and Fascism. Aberdeen Citizens Remember Other Fischer Children ABERDEEN, S. P. (UPP-The thriving Aberdeen quints were scheduled for their first weighing today and townsfolk decided to do something nice for the other five Fischer children. There were busy goings-on as the quints entered the sixth day of their lives. The doctor boosted their rations again. Two grandmothers tidied up the house for Mrs. Fischer's coming home from th* hospital Saturday or Sunday. And the Aberdeen "welcome wagon" prepared to make a call to the ten-room farm house outside Aberdeen with gifts and goodies for the oldest Fischer children. They range in age from 3 to 7. "I talked with Sister Stephen, the hospital administrator, and told her the children at home would more or less be forgotten," said Mrs. Dorothy Getsraan, the welcome wagon hostess. "Some gifts would more or less cheer them up a little bit." Mrs. Getsman said she thought of the other children in the family because she once had twins herself who were in the hospital for two months. The Getsman twins are now 16. Mrs. Getsman said she and her assistant rounded up cook sets and dishes for the two older girls, fuzzy dogs and teddy bears for the younger two, and sweat shirts and plaid bathroom slippers for the boy. "And we have a 5-pound box of candy for the whole family," she said. The mother, Mrs. Mary Ann Fischer, 30, admitted earlier in the week she was worried about her other children. Her doctor, Dr. James N. Berbos, said Thursday she would leave St. Luke's Hospital either Saturday or Sunday. Dragon Lady Prefers Mao Over Nikita BELGRADE, Yugoslavia (AP) —Mrs. Ngo Dinh Nhu, the politically powerful first lady of South Viet Nam, declared today Soviet Premier Khrushchev is more dangerous than Mao Tze-tung, the Red Chinese boss. "We are for coexistence," she naid in an interview at tho close of a nine-day visit to Belgrade, "because of the geographical and strategic position of our country. But for genuine coexistence. "The Khrushchev type of coexistence is not genuine. It is only a form of subversion." Different Routes Elaborating, the sister-in-law of President Ngo Dinh Diem said: "Khrushchev wants world domination just like Mao Tze-tung. But, while Mao is loud, beating the drums, Khrushchev pursues his aims quietly. "The means of Khrushchev might succeed much easier than those of Mao. "The violent tactics of Mao have resulted in the revival of Indian nationalism and in other parts of the world the reaction will be similar. "Khrushchev looks to us more dangerous. His tactics of peaceful coexistence, which covers subversion, are more dangerous than the outspoken Mao. "Mao is not more holy than Khrushchev, but Khrushchev is cleverer and therefore more dan-! gerous." Including Joint Moon Expedition UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) — President Kennedy today noted the apparent pause in the cold war and called for new U.S.-Soviet cooperation, including a joint expedition to the moon. He also urged new efforts to ban weapons of mass destruction from outer space. The President addressed the U.N. General Assembly which Thursday heard a Where to Find It 2 SECTIONS 26 PAGKS Abingdon 12 Amusement 6 Bushnell 18 Churches 9 Classified Ads 23-24-25 Comics-TV-Radio .... 22 - 7 - 8 Editorial 4 Farm 20 Galva 18 Hospital Notes 18 KnoxvUle 12 Markets 19 Monmouth 13 Obituary 23 Sports - 15-16 Weather 2 Women in the New* —10-11 policy declaration from Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko. Kennedy matched the moderate, conciliatory tone set by Gromyko and hailed by U.N. delegates as a welcome change in the international atmosphere. Cubans Missing The one jarring note was a boycott by the Cuban delegation, whose seats were conspicuously vacant in the crowded chamber. The President made no specific mention of Gromyko's proposal for an 18-nation summit conference on disarmament in 1964, but he laid heavy stress on continuing arms negotiations. He cautiously followed his reference to "a pause in the cold war" by a reminder that this is not a lasting peace. The public was excluded from the galleries for security reasons, but the seats were packed with spectators—including members of Ihe 111 U.N. diplomatic missions and U.N. staff personnel. In a major foreign policy pro nouncement before the United Nations, Kennedy said the negotiation of a limited nuclear test-ban treaty—which he predicted would win "overwhelming endorsement" from the U.S. Senate next week- could prove "the start of a long and fruitful journey" toward peace. And he said it might be followed by a joint American-Soviet effort to place the first humans on the moon, "not as the representatives of a single nation, but the representatives of all humanity." In his address prepared for delivery to the 18th General Assembly, Kennedy also called for steps toward disarmament and a broader test ban, abolition of racial and religious discrimination everywhere, and new efforts to strengthen the United Nations as an instrument of international cooperation. In his only reference to Gromyko's talk, Kennedy said: "We must continue to seek agreement, encouraged by yesterday's affirmative response to this proposal, by the Soviet foreign minister, on an arrangement to keep weapons of mass destruction out of outer space." In space, Kennedy said, both the United States and the Soviet Union have "a special capacity." Furthermore, he argued, both have agreed through the United Nations that they will make no territorial claims in space Having prepared this backdrop, Kennedy said: "Why, therefore, should man's first flight to the moon be a matter of national competition? Why should the United States and the Soviet Union, in preparing for such expeditions, become involved in immense duplications of research, construction and expenditure? "Surely we should explore whether the scientists and astronauts of our two countries—indeed of all the world—cannot work together in the conquest of space, sending some day in this decade tc the moon, not the representatives of a single nation, but the representatives of all humanity." While holding out an olive branch, Kennedy indirectly belabored the Soviet Union for its record in Germany, Cuba, the Congo, the United Nations and elsewhere. And, he said that the United Stales is not without stain—spe cifically, in the area of racial discrimination. Said Kennedy: "The United States of America is opposed to discrimination and persecution on grounds of race and religion anywhere in the world, including our own nation. We are working to right the wrongs of our own nation." Kennedy did not confine his discussion of discrimination to the United States, however. He condemned the oppression of Buddhist priests in South Vict Nam, the closing of synagogues in tho Soviet Union, the Hungarian government's treatment of Joseph Cardinal Mindszcnty who is in exile in the U.S. Legation in Budapest, and a ban on Protestant missions in some countries. The President said he believes both nations and their allies can work out further agreements "which spring from our mutual interest in avoiding mutual destruction." Ho ticked off these possible areas of future negotiation: The prevention of war by accident or miscalculation, safeguards against surprise attack "including observation posts at key points," control over the transfer of nuclear weapons to non-nuclear powers, conversion of the atom to peaceful purposes, a ban on underground nuclear tests "with adequate inspection and enforcement," and a freer East-West flow of information and people. In discussing an expanded role for the United Nations Kennedy said: "We have tho power to make this the best generation of mankind in the history of the world— or to make it the last." Ho advanced these specified proposals for broadening tho United Nations' functions: Creation of a world center for health communications to warn of epidemics and possibly harmful drugs, and report new experiments and discoveries. Regional centers for medical research and the training of scientists and doctors from the emerging nations. A global satellite system to provide communications and weather information. A worldwide conservation program, and a similar effort to promote farm productivity and food distribution to "give every hungry child the food he needs." Y::; v-^ljii -if,'! '•ill 1 ! Earl II.
