(AP Wirephoto Map) Kennedy Urges Tax Cut Support B.y EDMONI) LEBRETON i fire under Congress on behalf WASHINGTON (AP) - Presi dent Kennedy has urged the people to speak up in support of hi? tax reduction program. He sak its benefits would range from new washing machines for fam ilies to new strength around the world for the American dollar anc freedom. "But that bill is in danger ol being weakened or deferred," declared Kennedy. "It needs your help, your voice." Thus through a national radio and television speech, the President sought to light a grassroots Urges U. S. Liberalize Red Trade WASHINGTON (AP)-Canada's big wheat deal with the Soviet Union is putting new steam into pressures already building up for more liberal U.S. trade with the Communist bloc in goods. Sen. Frank Carlson, a Republican from wheat-growing Kansas, stated the proposition flatly to his colleagues today, calling on the administration to study proposals to do more business with the Reds in such materials as food. Secretary of Commerce Luther H. Hodges had indicated only Wednesday, not in direct connec tion with wheat, that the subjec is coming up for consideration. 'Be Practical' Carlson, a member of the For eign Relations Committee, said in a Senate speech that Canada' agreement to sell Russia $500 mil lion worth of wheat, with $33 mil lion of it earmarked for Cuba "should prove to us that we must be practical and realistic in oui trade program." His remarks came on the heel ol word from Secretary of Agri culture Orville L. Freeman tha he would be willing to sell some of this country's surplus wheat to the Soviet Union if the Russians pay "our price." Freeman was referring, before a farm audience at Monticello Iowa, Wednesday, to the 70 cents the $ll-billion tax reduction — which he called the most im portant domestic economic mea: ure in 15 years. The first Hurdle major hurdle wi a bushel subsidy this country pays on export wheat to make i competitive in world markets. Freeman said it would require approval "in the highest circles of government" to subsidize ship ments to Russia. Today's New York Times said Soviet representatives are report ed to have approached American traders with offers to buy wheat The story quoted a highly placed source as saying the Russians are expected soon to make a direct approach to the U.S. government Prices Up On Chicago's Board of Trade futures quotations have risen on reports of the short Russian crop and foreign buying by the Soviets. , Any U.S. wheat deal with Russia would run into regulations of the Commerce Department, which issues export licenses, barring benefits of government export subsidies on farm products to the Soviet Union. "I am not advocating the sale or trade of strategic war material to Russia," Carlson asserted, "but I do urge the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Commerce to study proposals for increased trade with Russia in such items as food and nonstrategic materials. Subsequently, Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey, D.Minn., assistant Senate majority leader, called again for a complete re-examination of U.S. trade policies. Hodges' remarks about Soviet bloc trade were on a more gon- eralilzed basis. A committee of industrialists taking part in a White House conference on export expansion recommended a review of the policy, come next Wednesday when th House is expected to vote on th tax program. But Kennedy wa also looking toward the Senat where the bill faces ^a storm time. Kennedy directed his appeal a along the economic front, from businessmen to factory workers from families watching their own shaky budgets to citizens worriet over the governments' unbalances budget. He asked for quick passage o the bill without a proposed Re publican amendment tying ta: cuts to curbs on spending. Almost as soon as Kennedy fin shed his address, William E Miller, Republican national chair man, fired off telegrams to th networks asking equal time to re ply to the President. Retorting to GOP charges o fiscal recklessness, Kennedy said "No wasteful, inefficient or un necessary government activity nonstrategic will be tolerated on the ground that it helps employment. We ar pledged to a course of true flsca responsibility, leading to a bal anced budget." Appeal Much, of his appeal was directec to people like the $8,000-a-yea family whose prospective benefit he singled out as an example. Th' head of such a household, he said could loog to the tax cut fo enough extra take home pay to meet "the installments on a new dishwasher for his wife." Other families, he \Vent on might prefer to use theirs on "a new spring wardrobe, or a wash ing machine, or a longer vaca tion trip, or a down payment 01 a new car or a new home." Ant he said the demand so createi would help the country "skip , recession" and provide the 10 mil lion jobs needed in the next 2 1 / years. Kennedy obviously was looking for some help from Republicans too. He said: "This is not a question of partj —it is a question of jobs anc growth. It is a question o whether our taxpayers and busi nessmen and workers will get the break they deserve. As the Congress prepares to vote on this- issue, I strongly urge you to support this bill for your family'? sake and for your country's sake."

(AP)— Mounting investigations and outcries over Tuesday's railroad crossing crash which killed 28 Mexican migrant workers raised a question mark today over the status of the nation's hracero program. As probes were pushed on both federal and statr levels, Rep. Henry B. Gonzalez. D-Tex., called for defeat of a pending bill which would extend for one year the right to import Mexican laborers or braceros, to do farm work. "My witnesses are the dead anc niKimed," hesaid. At Boulder, Colo., the migrant committee of the National Council of Churches said the crash, in which a freight train demolished a makeshift bus carrying fi2 workers, underscored I he need for morn protective legislation. "Such appalling accidents, which occur in every harvest season, should cause every American to take to heart the plight ol one million migratory favm workers," stated a resolution passed by the committee. Six of the more than 30 injured in California's worst vehicular accident in history remained near death. Francisco Espinosa, 34, driver of the bus which was carried a lalf mile down the track while bodies tumbled on both sides, was n jail in felony manslaughter charges.

The woman turned over the $30 to a man from St. Louis who assured her he had a buyer "But needed an advance to cover expenses." She hasn't seen the man since nor has anyone shown up to buy the restaurant. Investigation by police revealed the man had cashed the check in East Alton. Police said the woman ran an advertisement in a newspaper trying to sell her business. The man contacted her a few days later. An effort to reach the man by phone have failed. The operator in St. Louis told police Wednesday there is no such telephone number as given by the man to the apparent swindle victim. Harry Hemphill, president of the Alton-Wood River Realty Board, warned area residents to be leary of any one who asks a fee in advance of a sale. Hemphill said, "A legitimate real estate dealer \vill not take a fee in advance. If any one asks for such a fee, the person who is approached should contact the president or secretary of the Alton-Wood River Realty Board." U of I Television Seeks Power Increase URBANA. 111.

Frank Lausche, D-Ohio, previously counted as a supporter of the limited nuclear test ban treaty, told the Senate today he will vote against its ratification. He said that the ban on all but underground testing of nuclear weapons could "create a condition that will bring Russia to a position of supremacy in power." He added if that occurs, he has "great misgivings about what will happen to our country." He said that peace has been maintained only because of U.S. military might.
