Des Moin«s Jhuri.._July ,24, J 969 BOUND TO JURY IN D,M, HOLDUP By Louise Swartzwalder A man whose companion was killed in a high-speed auto chase with police following three Des Moines-area holdups was ordered bound over to the Polk County Jury Wednesday on a charge of robbery with aggravation. John E. Young, 27, of Ce-~ dar Rapids, appeared at a preliminary hearing before Municipal Court Judge Harry B. Grund. Young was arrested shortly after midnight June 20 after a chase which ended when Young's car collided with an Ankeny police car three miles north of An- kcny. Arthur Hamlin, 29, of Iowa City, who authorities said was in the car with Young, was killed in the crash. Young was hospitalized for several days. Young is charged with robbing the Pizza Hut, 1600 Euclid ave., of about $340 late June 19. He is being held in Polk County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bond on that charge. M. J. Morrison, manager of the Pizza Hut, testified Wednesday that two men armed with pistols took the $340 from the cash register. Pending against Young is another charge of robbery with aggravation involving a holdup early June 20 at Boots' Tavern, 4275 Second ave., in which $400 was taken. He pleaded innocent to the charge in Polk County District Court and bond was set at $25,000. Authorities have not filed charges in connection with a robbery at the Second Avenue Tap, 2801 Second ave., which occurred a short time after the Pizza Hut holdup.

Although the plan was withdrawn from consideration by county zoning officials last week, Polk County Supervisor Tom Whitney told the regional planners a revised proposal is in preparation. The original proposal was approved by the County Board of Adjustment last week and withdrawn in the face of a law suit by Des Moines water offipials. A revised proposal may never make it to the adjustment board for another hearing. The County Zoning Commission has recommended the supervisors set up a special zoning area for mobile home courts. This would remove authority from the adjustment board to approve mobile home court permits. The action was interpreted as a slap at adjustment board action favoring the Raccoon River sewage lagoon and mobile home park. At a joint meeting of adjustment board members, zoning !

Final action will be up to the supervisors in August. It is believed they will support taking mobile home jurisdiction from the adjustment board. John Andrews, a member of the County Zoning Commission and chairman of the regional planning group, said Wednesday night, "We think it's kind of dangerous to contaminate the whole water system. . . . "This (sewage lagoon proposal) is" another reason regional planning is so important." Sanitation Men in Chattanooga Strike CHATTANOOGA, T E N N.

(AP) The House Ways and Means Committee approved Wednesday a minimum income tax proposal, broader than President Nixon's. It would assure that all high income recipients pay tax on a substantial portion of their income. The provision wrapped into the committee's tax reform package would be aimed at individuals whose income is derived largely or wholly from capital gains, municipal bonds and other t a x-preferred sources, or who offset income by gifts of property that has become more valuable as they held it, or othe special deductions. Still Tax-Exempt The committee also approved stricter tax treatment of gifts of appreciated property and of co-operatives. Although there was no official announcement, sources said there was general agreement not to change the present system of tax preferences for persons 65 or older, This means Social Security and Railroad Retirement benefits would continue tax-exempt. Also not acted upon, it wasj understood, were proposals to give a tax break to single persons maintaining tiouseholds. i Tentatively approved was a tax change aimed largely at; the petroleum firms operating; abroad and estimated to raise i tax revenue by about $100 mil-! lion annually. Earlier recommended changes principally af-i feeling the oil industry have been estimated to be worth about $600 million to the Treasury. The committee is seeking to complete a bill for House action next month, sources said. The minimum income tax would work this way: No one would be allowed to use "tax preferences" to shield more than half of his total income from taxation. If, for example, a man had $100,000 salary and $200,000 tax preferences, under present law he would be taxed on $100,00o! Under the proposal he would be taxed on $150,000 — half of his total income. Special Advantages The committee said its definition of tax preferences is all-inclusive of special advantages in the tax code. It includes two items not in the Nixon Treasury proposals—interest on state and municipal bonds and the untaxed one-half of capital gains. There would be a $10,000 floor below which the tax preferences would not be reduced. Committee sources said the added revenue from the minimum income tax would exceed $200 million. The committee's proposals on gifts of appreciated property would bear down on donations of such things as works of art and personal papers. , A taxpayer would still be permitted to give such properly as stock or real estate, which had gained in value while he held it, to a public chanty or similar institution and claim the full market value as a deduction. In other cases, however, he would b.e subjecl lo some tax. He could either claim Ihe original cost of the property as a deduction, or he could deduct the full current market value and pay capital gains tax on the appreciation. This rule would apply under these circumstances: —If he gave stock, real estate or similar property to a private foundation instead of a public charity, unless the , foundation within a year passed on the donation to a qualifying charity, or similar institution. —If the donation was of tangible personal property, such as works of art or valuable papers. • —If the gift was of property, such as merchandise, that would have resulted in ordinary income if it had been' sold instead of donated. —If, instead of an outright gift, the donor made a "bargain sale" of property to a charity at below-market cost. One of the proposed new rules affecting the U.S. oil firms operating abroad would provide that when a company takes credit against its U.S. income for a loss incurred in a foreign country, the government can recoup the tax loss in future years if the foreign operation becomes profitable, sources said. Another wquld affecl oil companies operating in countries w*here the government also is owner of the, mineral rights. Excess tax credits gained in that nalion could no longer be used to reduce the U.S. tax payable on income from a different foreign country. The commillee also proposed tighler depreciation rules for regulated businesses, such as carriers and public utilities, including pipelines. $1 Million Suit DAVENPORT, IA. (AP) The widow of a Bettendorf man who was electrocuted in a construction accident last year near Pleasant Valley is seeking $1.25 million in damages in a suit filed Wednesday in Scott County District Court here.
