A Circuit Court judge banned collection of Indiana's new 2-per cent retail sales tax, ruling it unconstitutional. And his action, just days before the July 1 effective date of the tax, turned the state's iscal order into chaos. Nevada's lawmakers boosted he sales tax rate from 2 to ?er cent. But the voters vetoed he increase in a referendum. Wisconsin legislation to replace he selective sales tax with a general sales tax was vetoed by the BROADWAY and PIASA ALTON, ILLINOIS tates. governor. The Illinois Legislature has ailed to approve Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley's program of special taxes on sales, cigarette; and alcoholic beverages. Commerce Clearing House, i private agency that serves busi ness with such information, resorted Wednesday that "state leg slatures are boosting rates and adding new taxes at a fast clip !o meet rapidly rising revenue needs." 'State tax growth is reflected in the whopping budgets submitted in key states for the coming fiscal year," it said. "California plans to raise a.nd spend $3.25 billion, New York $2.8 billion and Michigan $1.4 billion. "Taken together, these three budgets total $7.5 billion. In 1948, all 48 states collected only $7.7 billion." Kerner Says e/ Trade Growth Is Necessary CHICAGO (AP) — Gov. Otto Kerner helped open the fifth annual Chicago International Wednesday with a plea for increased foreign trade. Kerner said Illinois is already one of the nation's greatest export states. But he said trade expansion must continue if Illinois is to find the 750,000 extra jobs it will need in the next 10 years. Thirty-four nations including the United States and Canada have set up displays of their wares at IVIcCormick Place, the lakefront exhibition hall where the 19-day fair will be held. A two-day World Marketing Conference, held in conjunction with the fair, wound up Wednesday, after hearing an address by Edwin P. Neilan, president of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States.

(AP) — Noises which sounded like "cats fight- ng" roused James Sam Campbell from his easy chair Wednesday night. He stepped outside to invest!- jate. Just as he turned to go back, he sported a brown paper >ag under a tree. He opened it. Inside wrapped in a pillow slip was a 7-pound baby boy. Campbell called police and rushed the white child to Mattoon Memorial Hospital. Doctors closed a laceration on the forehead with stitches. Dr. Stanley Thiel said the baby—four to six lours old—was in good condition. Nurses at the hospital said the child was doing fine—and was already spoiled. A dish towel had been used as a diaper and another dish towel was wrapped around the infant under the pillow slip. Police speculated a passing motorist had deposited the child on Campbell's lawi.. House Oks New House For Governor SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP) — A bill appropriating $700,000 for a new governor's mansion to replace the present "termite in- iested" structure has been okayed by the Illinois House. The appropriation was sent to :he Senate for final action Wednesday by a 113-44 vote. Rep. W.J. Murphy, R-Antioch, who submitted the bill, said the 110-year-old mansion is in "deplorable condition" and is becoming too expensive to maintain. An average of $37,000 a year, Murphy said, "has been spent to maintain the mansion in each of the past 12 years. "Some people are afraid it will fall apart or burn down," he added. Murphy said the land on which ket. Said Neilan: "Whatevei reciprocal tariff reductions eventually are negotiated between us and the European Community must in the mansion now stands has been appraised at $950,000. which would offset the $700,000 cost of a new one. Among those opposing the bill were Reps. G. William Horsley, R-Springfield, and William Pierce, D-Rockford. Horsley urged that the mansion be preserved. "The mansion should be preserved for its historical and traditional value," said Pierce, "even if it costs more than $900,000 to rehabilitate it, we should do it." GOP Rep. William Pollack of Chicago, who opposed the bill, noted the bedrooms of the mansion are on the third floor. "You may die of a heart attack before you can get up to bed," he said. Murphy said the downtown area in which the mansion is located has become commercialized. Regardless of where one is in the mansion, Murphy said, "you've got lights glowing and horns blowing." tun. be extended to the whole free worJd, with particular emphasis on the less developed nations."
