NewTwlst Given Iowa Plan George Dies; Veteran of Senate, Envoy to NATO By HARRISON WEBER (Iowa Dally Press Assn. Writer) DES MOINES — there is some talk in Republican circles of a new twist to the plan of raising the sales tax to 3 per cent and eliminating the income tax. Republicans at Clear Lake for Governor's Day held an informal caucus on the lawn of Lieutenant Governor William Nicholas and discussed Iowa's tax situation. One plan advanced at the meeting was a 3 per cent sales tax, a 5 per cent corporation tax and no income tax. % Some solons reasoned that merely raising the sales tax to 3 per cent and throwing out the income tax would not bring in enough revenue. They argued that by increasing the corporation tax from 2 to 5 per cent there would be enough revenue to provide for needed capital improvements. The corporation tax reverted from 3 to 2 per cent when Democratic Governor Herschel C. Loveless vetoed the omnibus tax bill. Legislators pointed out that several surrounding states have a 7 per cent corporation tax-. About 40 legislators attended the affair which was held Sunday afternoon, July 28. The session was confined to legislative matters and political strategy. There was no talk about can didates. Some legislators felt it was wrong for leaders in the party to attack Loveless in the manner in which they had been doing. They said this just tended to build up sympathy for Loveless. A recent Waterloo speech by Speaker of. the House William H, Mooty, Grundy Center, came in for considerable discussion. Mooty, in his Waterloo speech, accused Loveless of "grandstanding." Republicans agreed that Mooty had some good points in the speech, however, most were critical of the way Mooty expressed himself. Only one of the 40 some legislators on hand made a speech backing Mooty for the way he handled the Waterloo speech. VIENNA. Ga. (M-The body of' former Sen. Walter F. George lay in state today in the red brick gothic First Baptist Church where he often worshiped while the great and the humble alike mourned his passing. Organists played soft music as friends and neighbors filed past for a last glimpse of the Georgia tenant farmer's son who became special ambassador to NATO after a long and distinguished career as a Democrat in the U.S. Senate. Others in this little South-Central Georgia town of 2,000 strolled past the white frame house where the 79-year-old statesman died of heart ailment at 1:52 a.m. (EST) Sunday or looked again at the statue the townsfolk erected in his honor seven years ago. Mayor j.T. DeLiesseline issued Hire Auditors Democrats may be in control of the tax commission/but a Republican still has a fighting chance. The tax commission has just hired five auditors and two inspectors. One of the auditors is a Republican. . Indiana Plait ~~ Clayton L. Rlnggenberg, director of. the Legislative Research Bureau, plans to release a report on the Indiana Gross Income Tax in about two or three weeks. Ringgenberg recently visited. Indiana' and collected enough data to round out his report. On his last visit he was particularly interested in Indiana's property taxes and their,^administrative problems. Earlier this year the Bureau released a report which was condensed from the unpublished proceedings of the Iowa Tax Study Committee. This new report will be' more up to date. . Regents Meeting !

In Washington, the Senate planned to meet only briefly and recess out of respect for the courtly Southerner.
