And hotels, night club and I and of country elubs dues is some " Says GOP Serves as resort owners, and waiters in general, will continue to be unhappy because of fears of losing business from free spenders and the bother of giving receipts. They are sure to try to change the rules if they can. The IRS has issued its new rules on tax deductions for business expenses with an Aug. 1 deadline for the bookkeepers, but rules apply to tax returns for all 1963. Now all that businessmen have to do is to study and try to understand them. Wives enter the picture both as convention companions and as hostesses at home. If they are bona fide spreaders of goodwill in furthering the company's business by entertaining customers and their wives, they are tax deductible. This applies to the cost of restaurant and night club enter- thing the host will have to prove. The IRS says the fine line here between business and pleasure must be clearly established by the taxpayer. The same goes for night club entertaining which the IRS feels often could be too distracting for real business transactions. It is particularly leary of the "expenditure for beverages served during the floor show." But it is quite lenient about the ordinary business meal. Or as the new rules specify: "expenditures for meals and beverages served during the course of a breakfast, lunch or dinner meeting of the taxpayer and his business associates at a restaurant, hotel dining room, eating club or similar place not involving distracting influences such as a floor show." The rules are dubbed final. But Watchdog SALEM, III. (API-Illinois Secretary of State Charles Carpentier says Republican fiscal watchdogs are responsible for prevent ing the administration of Gov. Kerner from what he termed a "spending bender."

Having the state government live within Its Income will be the Republican campaign cry in 1964," he said. x Carpentier has said he will announce in August whether he will seek the GOP nomination for governor. Republican fiscal responsibility, he said, has been displayed during Kerner's administration by demands for limits on aid to relief recipients. The GOP, he said, "also killed a cry of doom" from Democrats who he charged caused an unnecessary special session of the legislature last winter when it appeared public aid funds were running out.

House Kills BiU to Ban Striker Aid SPRINGFIELD, 111. fAPj—The Illinois House declined today to pass a Senate bill banning relief payments to strikers. Rep. Paul Powell of Vienna, Democratic leader, attacked the j proposal as an employers' effort to force settlement of strikes.
