ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Serving the Alton Community for More Than 124 Years I WARM Established January 15, 1836 Vol. CXXV, No, 134 ALTON, ILL., MONDAY, JUNE 20, 1960 PAOIS 3e Ptr Copy Member of Tht Awodtttd torn Senate Retains Telephone Tax WASHINGTON <AP)—The Senate, today voted to keep the 10 i>(*r cent federal levy on local telephone and telegraph service and passenger fares for another year, rejecting a 752 million dollar tax cut. First the Senate by a 34-30 tally munlcations and travel taxes. In PATTERNS IN WRECKAGE rejected a move to let the tele- o and telegraph levies expire Junr Next it turned down by a 55-29 vole a recommendation that the the conference with the House, the effective date of both provisions ta.\ on train, bus and plane fares be allowed to go off at the samej I was changed to July 1. 1C60, and it was decided to cut the travel excise only in half. But Different Climate a different climate pre- time. The Senate Finance Committee had proposed that both tax cuts be made. President Eisenhower had opposed the cuts and the House rejected them in passing the tax extension-debt ceiling bill. The Senate voted last year for immediate repeal of both the com- Illinois May Lose Seat In House vailed this time. Opponents of any | tax cut argued that a worsening; international situation made iti Imperative to keep intact all of, the Treasury's revenue sources. Many Democrats also feared their party would be accused of fiscal irresponsibility if they voted I for tax reductions after putting through many spending increases. President Elsenhower had urged I that the telephone and travel j taxes be extended another year at \ the full 10 per cent rate, and the> House accepted this. Tlie bill which the Senate is considering would extend four billion dollars worth of corporation income ' excise levies to July 1.; 1961. and would raise the national' Jebl ceiling eight billion dollars' a year. j Earlier Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson : (D-T«c) voiced "grave doubts" ofi wisdom of pending 3 cut taxes do"ars.

Final figures could change the computation. Gov. Stratton of Illinois has maintained that 'the final figures will show no need for any shift in Illinois' representation in the House. The Census Bureau, by Dec. 1, must give President Eisenhower the final population figures for each state along with the bureau's plan for repportloning the House. The President will send fhe proposal to Congress early In January. Congress has the right to make changes in the bureau's reapportionment plan. The approved changes in House seating will go into effect with the 1962 congressional elections. The last reapportionment cut Illinois' representation from 26 districts to 23 in 1951. That change was made after the '1950 Census showed state's population grew from 7,897,241 in 1940 to 8,712,176 in 1930. Illinois lost its 26th seat b ; !I to incren"- revenue by closing what these senators describe as serious loopholes in the tax laws. Their Democratic sponsors said they are needed to help pay for increased spending already voted by the Senate, and to offset Republican charges of fiscal irresponsibility. The proposed changes were offered as amendments to a bill lo continue present wartime rates on corporation income and excise taxes and to authorize a 293-billion-dollar national debt ceiling until July 1. 1961. Normally tax changes must originate in the House. Sponsors said the changes they propose would raise about two billion dollars of additional revenue by plugging what they call loopholes in present tax law. List Proposals Among their proposals are amendments to repeal the 4 per cent tax credit on dividend income, to provide for income tax withholding on dividend income, because the population increased!to cut the oil and gas depletion lagged in proportion with the na-j allowance, and to limit the e»tc?r- tionwide increase of 20 million, itainment items which taxpayers Nine openings in th«> rear nail indicate former windows and doors in the Merritt apartments on E.

Eisenhower left with a pledge from South Korea's reform government to guard against wasting the hundreds of millions of dollars in aid 'he United States pours in each year. "I pledge that we will do every- thing possible to insure that American aid funds are wisely, efficiently and honestly used lor the benefit of all the Korean people," Prime Minister Huh Chung declared in his parting words to Eisenhower at Seoul International Airport. ' Wildly cheered by one million 'Koreans who blocked his motorcade Sunday and hundreds of i thousands more on Monday, Ei- jsenhower on departure said it I was a "memorable experience" to see "so many Korean people along the routes of travel I have followed."

Wuellner & Son erected steel tubular scaffolding at the front of the No. 1 firehouse on State street in preparation for removing several structural hazards. One of these is the old bell tower. In the old days, the bell in the tire tower was rung as the horses dashed out onto State street, drawing behind them the fire truck. Also, the bell at wit time was a curfew that each evening sounded the end ol the time when good boys and girls could be out on the streets. In recent years, the bell hat, hung silent in its tower while thu building settled and created problems which Mayor P. W. Day and the City Council decided should he lakeu care of. The uork is not a ruujoi ie»ioxit- tu» ol the fire house, but nitrely a measure to make it bale for occupancy until the city is in a posi- tion lo house No. 1 lire company in a new building or location.

In his final speeches, Eisenhower plugged hard at what he called the imperative need of more freedom and opportunity for Koreans who two months overthrew S y n g m a n Rfiee's strongman regime.
