Northerly Winds Push Light Snow It had all the earmarks of good storm, but left most of Southwest Kansas with only a light cover of snow and slick, hazardous highways. Yesterday's snow, which was Intermittent during the day and mostly melting as it fell, didn't start accumulating until last night. Strong northerly winds moved into the area about midnight, causing minor driftng and reducing visibility to almost zero. For a few hours after midnight, highway officials were stopping traffic at toe outskirts of Garden City, advising motorists not to travel unless absolutely necessary. However, the snow stopped by daylight, and with a sun shin- Ing most of the mornng, highways were expected to be near normal by noon. Snew plew> were called back in by mid-morning, and only trucks with equipment to spread Trujilfo, Wife S~k Extk in Port**9ol LISBON, Portugal (AP) Hector Trujillo, former president of the Dominican Republic and his American wife are seeking a new home in exile here, officials report.

Stom from N*w Tax Cut till New Tax Forms Soon WASHINGTON (AP)—The Internal Revenue Service is mapping a campaign to help the puzxled taxpayer! who are required to pay part or -all of their taxes on .a quarterly basis, an agency official said today. The agency plans to rush 12 to 1$ million new forms and instruction sheets to post offices and banks within a week after final congressional action is taken on the income-tax-reduction bill. About 10 per cent of the tax- payers.^.B.jniUiM^.-. .are re-. toWi Wt estimated in- come tax returns because part or all of their income is not covered by the withholding tax on wages and salaries. New withholding rates have been announced, a drop to 14 per cent from U per cent, even though Congress has not taken final action on the tax cut bill. New tables for employers were mailed out this week. But this combination form and instruction sheet will not be mailed directly to taxpayers because some of them might confuse it with the regular package of income tax forma they received la»t month. WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. government is granting asylum to Soviet secret police defector Yuri I. fosenko in a case still carrying overtones of a spy thriller. The State Department unraveled some of the mys- «ry with a pair of announcements Friday. In the first J.S. comment since last Monday's disclosure that Nosen- co, who had disappeared from the Soviet disarmament delegation at Geneva Feb. 4, had asked for political asy- um in America, pi-ess officer Richard I. Phillips revealed that: 1. Noscnko now is In Washington, though his exact whereabouts remains a secret. 2. The Russians demanded an ntervicw with Noscnko in a note Wednesday, and were (ranted it Friday. A Soviet Em- >assy representative talked to Nosenko for less than an hour, and Noscnko "reconfirmed his desire for asylum." 3. A Swiss Embassy representative also questioned Noscnko separately for less than an hour and got the same answer. A State Department rcprcsenta- ive sat in on both inter roga- ions. 4. Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko called in U.S. Ambassador Foy D. Kohler in Moscow and delivered a stiff oral protest to what Gromyko called "improper behavior"- by the United States in*the case. But the Russians have not accused the United States of kid- naping and have not threatened to pull out of the disarmament conference at Geneva. A Soviet Embassy spokesman confirmed the interview with Nosenko but declined comment. The Swiss Embassy also acknowledged having seen Nosen- ko and said its representative had been told by the Russian that he wanted refuge in the United States. Phillips said the United States is "prepared to give him asylum" and had sent the Soviet Union a note replying to their Wednesday inquiry "as to the manner in which Mr. Nosenko presented himself to U.S. authorities." The State Department spokesman said there would be no further announcement, and he declined to say when Noscnko might be surfaced to public view. Still under wraps were how Nosenko defected, how he got to the United States, and what secrets he might have passed on to U.S. intelligence. From the fuss Moscow has made over lus disappearance there was speculation that the West had gained a notable prize in the continuing undercover contest of the cold war. Nosenko, 36, was ostensibly a low-ranking member of the Soviet delegation at the disarmament parley. Actually, according to U.S. sources he is a staff officer of the Soviet KGB secret police apparatus. This presumably would put liim in a position to know about the workings of the secret police setup and the Soviet strategy at the Geneva conference. St. Louisans Roll Out Red Carpet for LBJ ST. LOUIS, Mo. (AP)-More than 100,000 cheering, waving St. Louisans, and 86 civil rights demonstrators, turned out Friday as President Johnson attended the city's 200th birthday celebration. Police intercepted the demonstrators, took thorn to headquarters and ordered them home. Later a man with a loaded .32- caliber pistol was apprehended at Lambert-St. IxHiis Municipal Airport where the presidential plane was parked. He was held for questioning. Otherwise the President's trip to St. Louis was uneventful. The weather was cool but sunny. He shook hands, planted a tree, toured part of the city and named Stan Musial, St. Louis Cardinal baseball great, direc tor of the President's physical fitness program. The President was greeted by an estimated total of 2,500 people at the airport on his arrival. They broke into cheers as he walked along the wire fence shaking extended hands. Thousands more spectators lined multilaned Mark Twain Expressway to watch the prcsi dential motorcade. Many of the watchers were children. Downtown President Johnson inspected the unfinished gate way arch on the Mississippi riv erfront. Then, through crowd-thronge< city streets, the motorcade wen to a slum clearance project nea St. Louis University. In • brief speech to 5,000 stu dents and others, the Presiden waved hii hand at the nearby university and declared: "The St. Louis area draws its strength from its fine colleges and universities." Those who file estimated tax returns — usually taxpayer with $10,000 or more income — could get an immediate benefi from the tax bill by figuring their estimated income tax un der the new, lower rates. How ever, they have received no offi cial notification of the new rates. They will be able to get tlr new instructions at a post office or bank a week after the bill be comes law. The bill, now in a Senate-House committee to re concile differences between two versions, is expected to be en acted by the end of the month The Weather Fair tonight and colder with lews in the teens or tower 20s.
