Hotel and Restaurant Business Shows Drop NEW YORK (AP)—Hotel and restaurant business fell drastically over much of the country during the first half of this year and many in the industry place much of the blame on tJncle Sam's tightened expense account tax deduction rules. Others said the new rules were just one of several factors responsible for the slide. Other factors cited: Confusion over the new regulations rather than the rules themselves. Overbuilding. Stricter rules imposed by private businessmen glad for an excuse to crack down on their own employes. Crime Rates Wide publicity on crime in some tourist centers, notably Washington, which discouraged some would-be visitors. In general the government now demands that businessmen show a closer tie between the expense involved and business activity, and that there be no lavish entertainment of customers or business associates. In New York City, expense account capital of the world, a spokesman for the hotel association said the rate of occupancy for the first seven months of 1963 was 65 per cent as against 70 per cent for the same period last year. The spokesman said total food sales in hotel-operated restaurants was down 11 per cent and banquet sales down 13.6 per cent from last year. He said the drop couldn't be ascribed to any particular source although the confusion and complexity of rules and the record keeping requirements of the new regulations contributed to the decline. New York City has 400 hotels doing $350 million to $375 million worth of business annually and a payroll of $150 million. A spokesman for the 3,500-member New York State Restaurant Association said operators felt that the Very scare of the (ex pense account) regulations has brought an absolute ax to the res tauant business." Improvement In Washington, William Thomas Power, National Restaurant Association spokesman, said the res taurant business had improved slightly since the big drop in January and February, but is still substantially below normal. Power said business will be off 10 per cent for the year and that this will mean a loss of $700 million to $1 billion 'in business. "The main deterrent at the moment," he added, "is confusion over the new rules." A Washington association of 3fi hotels and motels said total business was off 7.6 per cent in June and off 6.2 per cent for six months. Bourbon Dawes of the Hotel Association of Washington said the main reason for the decline was "overbuilding." Seven hotels were added in the area in the past year. Total business was about the same as last year, he added, but the new places cut into receipts at the old. The Commerce Department has no figures on how the large, luxury-type hotels and restaurants are doing. The department sometimes uses figures of Horwath & Horwath of New York City, a pri vate firm, in making predictions but does not publish the figures as its own. Occupancy These figures show total hotel rooms occupied in the United States down 3.2 per cent in tho first six months of this year, hote restaurant sales down 3.4 per cent, and all eating and drinking places — including hamburger Brussels High Elects Council, Class Officers BRUSSELS — Student council members and freshman class officers were elected at Brussels ligh School last week. Elected to the council were Tudy McKenncy and Tony Moennig, seniors; Beverley Weigel and David Schulze, juniors; Theresa Nolte and Jerry rose, sophomores and Rita Moennig and Allen Mossman, freshmen. Freshmen class officers elected were: Bill Kirn, president; Ervin Nolte, vice president; Bill Schleeper, secretary and Dan Pohlman, treasurer. PANAM ACITY — Teachers' quarters are included hi the Panama plan for school constftic tion. >-U**' stands and coffee shops—up 5.4 per cent. The National Restaurant Association said decreased sales resulting from the expense account rules changes would not show up in Commerce Department figures since only a very few "expense account" restaurants are Included The Commerce Department disputes this, contending any decrease would show up to some extent. Mr. and Mrs. Pranger have moved into the house owned by Mrs. Pranger's sister, Mrs. Mary Pohlman, on South Main street. Bowling Party CARROLLTON — A bowling party for members of the Knights of Columbus and their wives will be held Sunday between 7 and 10 p.m. at the Carrollton Bowling alley, according to plans made Monday evening at a social meeting in K. of C.

In preparation for assuming his new duties, Sullivan is spending three weeks in New York city taking special training.
