Tax Measure Has Errors MADISON — UP) — When the Legislature r e c o n v enes Monday it will have to consider what to do about some errors in Wisconsin's new tax law. The chief mistake discovered so far occurs because of misplaced dates. As it stands, the law does not properly provide the $55 million pledged for real property tax relief. The money is supposed to come from sales tax revenues and be distributed March 1, 1963, but in another section of the bill, the funds are not appropriated until four months later. Tax Commissioner John Gronouski said the error must be revised with a correctional amendment now or in 1963. "We are going to have available some technical language for legislators when they return," Gronouski said, "but there will be no substan five changes in the bill and there is no urgency in making the technical changes . They could be made when the Legislature returns in 1963." The department is still studying the new law for possible "glaring errors" in the sales tax and withholding sections which would have to be corrected before those two provisions go into effect Feb. 1. So far, no serious errors have beea discovered in those sections, Gronouski said. Kennedy's Father Might Go Home WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. —St. Mary's Hospital reported Saturday that Ambassador Joseph P. Kennedy, father of the president, may leave the hospital for his home this week. "We are satisfied with Mr. Joseph P. Kennedy's condition," the hospital said in a statement to the press. "He is getting along nicely. The doctors plan on allowing Mr. Kennedy to go home from the hospital one day this week." The president's father and former ambassador to the Court of St. James, maintains a winter home in nearby Palm Beach. He entered the hospital Dec. 19 after suffering a stroke. | BEAUTY-CONSCIOUS The woman who goes to the beauty parlor averages: 22.8 visits a year, at a cost: of $3.81 per visit. Catering' to this beauty-conscious market is the perfume and cosmetics industry, which tells women of their products in newspaper advertising. In 1960, they invested over $11 million for ads. THE PAYTERN OF UNITED STATES TRADE Pleads for Life, Man Killed Gangland-Style TRADE, TARIFFS AND TENSION— Congress is preparing for a tug of war as the Reciprocal Trade Program, begun in 1934, comes up for its 11th renewal. The act enables the president to make mutual tariff-lowering agreements with other countries. President Kennedy is expected to ask for broader tariff-cutting powers in order to bargain with Europe's Common Market, whose members are gradually abolishing all tariffs among themselves. Protectionists, however, fear the effect on domestic industries in the face of heavy competition from foreign imports. News- chart shows the record of U.S. foreign trade in 1960, which recorded a favorable imports vs. exports balance of n6arly $6 billion. Which Has Sunnier Clime? * * * * * * Florida, Arizona Baffle in Rhyme DAYTONA BEACH, Fla .—(^) — With Florida temperatures back in the 70s, the president of the State Chamber of Commerce came back at a lighthearted prod from Arizona about the chilly weather over the holidays. The Scottsdale, Ariz., Chamber of Commerce had wired Henry C. Coleman, Florida C of C president: "We're sorry "To hear that your chamber Is blue That your visitors are turning the same color too. Advise weather here is sunny and hot Come to Scottsdale for weather like you haven't got." In the same lighthearted style and license of meter, Coleman wired back: "Sorry you were taken in by the hoax. The State of Florida is full of folks. We had to resort to little white lies To take care of all the gals and guys Who are coming into our lovely state With reservations a little late. That you have room it's good to know. We'll be glad to send you our overflow." Mediation Panel Told by Meany WASHINGTON—(y?) —Es-, tablishment of a panel of 42^ imediators to help internal; disputes in the labor union! TUPELO, Miss, '—m— A Lee County night club operator was killed in a gangland- style slaying Saturday.

Riley, a 35-year-old former' I convict, surrendered later and admitted the shooting. Carter said several witnesses saw Riley fire at IGrubbs with a 16-gauge shot- igun. The witnesses said [Grubbs was standing with his hands up pleading, "Don't kill me," when he was shot. The slaying occurred after reporter Bill Miles of the Tupelo Daily Journal received an anonymous telephone call shortly after midnight that Grubbs would be slain. No Answer Miles said he was told to "go to Grubby's if you want a good story. He is going to be killed. They got them in a house but won't let them out." Miles said he asked who ;"they and them" were, but •got no answer. He said he - asked the caller if there had jbeen any shooting, and said ithe caller said "not yet" and hung up. Since September, Grubb's house had been shot up and someone fired several shots at his nightspot from a speeding car. A Tupelo businessman in the place was wounded in the eye by a shotgun pellet.
