John Storey, developer of the subdivision, told the commissioi he had not been required to in elude sidewalks or furnish an en gineering plan for the first two sections of the subdivision, Storey land Subdivision and Storeyland Subdivision No. 1, and didn't see why he "should have to furnish them now." It was brought out that several subdivisions had been approved in years past without sidewalks and engineering plans because of improper interpretation of the city ordinances. And since that time several subdividers have ask the two items be waived, but the plan commission recommended against such action. The City Council granted the requests. Eccles Huff, who cast the only dissenting vote, said the commission should recommend approval of the preliminary plat since the other two sections had been approved without the sidewalk inclusion and the engineering plan. "It is our fault the other two sections were approved without sidewalks and an engineering plan," Huff said. "I don't see how we can require Mr. Storey .to in elude them now, even though the city. ordinance states they must be ipcluded." John W. Hoefert, 'corporation counsellor, suggested the plan commission write a letter to City Council recommending it study the requirements for sidewalks in subdivisions, and at the same time advise the council the commission is opposed to elimination of the requirements. The matter has been brought up by each subdividing property outside the corporate limits of the city. The suggestion was made in the form of a motion and adopted unanimously by the commission.

"However tired we may get of this program, our adversaries are not tired. T don't think this country is tired and the cause of freedom should certainly not be fatigued. ' he told a news conference • Tues day. only hours after the $<t.l-billion authorization bill reached the House floor. Asking for full House support ol the bill, Kennedy said: "No party or group should call for a dynamic foreign policy and then seek to cripple this program." "One wonders which concrete actions critics would like to stop, he said. "Should we scrap the Alliance for Progress, which is our best answer to the threat of communism in this hemisphere? Should we deny help to India, thoj largest free power in Asia, as shej seeks to strengthen herself against Communist China? Do we wish to dismantle our joint defenses in Korea, Taiwan, Pakistan, Iran, Turkey and Greece, countries along the very rim of Communist power?" "This is not the time to slacken our efforts," Kennedy said. • Kennedy's words drew an echo In the house from Rep. Thomas E. Morgan, D-Pa., chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. "Now is not the time to scrap the entire program. It would mean ou entire foreign policy would have to be revised and our military policy completely reorgan iEed," said Morgan, who is guiding the measure through the House. The bill may reach the amendment stage late today. Rep. E. Ross Adah', R-Ind., leader of the GOP opponents on the committee, served notice mat his forces will try to slice more from the military assistance portion of the bill and the President's contingency fund. The committee has cut a total of 5260 million from these two categories.

Tax Cuts, Civil Rights Plans Vital: Kennedy •/ By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP) — President Kennedy says his "very vital" civil rights and tax programs are too important to be pushed aside by Congress until 1964. He wants votes on both this year regardless of how long it takes. ''And I think most congressmen will agree that they should meet their responsibilities" in these two fields before they go home, Kennedy told a news conference Tuesday. In reply to a question, Kennedy said he saw no reason Congress couldn't be kept in session long enough to act on his civil rights and tax programs. "What is the advantage of putting it over until next year? W0 have other problems. We have an election year; There are a good many excuses next 'year to. get ! ased. f Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Martin, Ue. 1, Bethalto, suffered severe acerations to his left arm Tues- ay afternoon at '1:30 p.m. when is arm ran through a storm door vindow at a neighbor's home.

But Republican congressional eaders and some top Democrats lave questioned whether there will be action this session on Kennedy's broad tax program. The President told his news :onference his civil rights pro- granv represents "a response to a very serious national crisis." And he described tax reduction as "a matter that affects employment, jobs, our economic prospects, the struggle against a recession." He said the present state of. .the. economy, which he tabbed as good, "is predicated in part upon a possible tax cut." Kennedy: liote'd that 1 '-he' had asked 'ior t?bc reduction .'last January.

He described the march a; aimed at bringing intc focus the "strong concern of a good many citizens" about racial relations. He said that he wiild meet with leaders of the dsnnnFtration. Here are President Kennedy's views in brief on major subjects raised Tuesday at his news conference: Soviet troops in Cuba — There has been a net decline in the past 2V« months, "but there are still Russians there and this is still a matter of concern to us." Limited nuclear test ban—of allegations there was a side agreement at Moscow, "There is nothing 1 can say other than to say it is not so."

Foreign aid—Appealing for con- sessional approval of the overseas assistance program, he said 'our foreign aid program is essential to the continued strength of the free world." Legislation — Congress should vote this year on the civil rights and tax bills; "they are both very important." The economy—"I think it is slightly better than was estimated in January. I would think that the state of the economy is go6d." Payments deficit—"The second quarter was particularly difficult. Since then the"" indications are better." Negro job quotas—"We ought to make an ( §£fort to give a fair chance to'everyone who is qualified, but not hard and fast quotas/' i( - ••••• , 'No, Conflict ••;• TFX—Said he saw nothing in the 'relationship of Secretary o( the Navy Fred Korth to the TFX warplane contract award that would suggest a conflict of interest. Goldwater—Asked about charg. es that Sen. Barry Goldwater, R- Ariz., .could become "a captive ol he radical right," he said: "Well don't know. I don't know who las captured who. I would thinl hat this is a matter which cat best be handled by the Republl cans at this time. Then after we mve a convention and a candi date, then 1 would discuss it it some detail."
