Noting expressed worries lest Washington start taking a less favorable view of the bigness of big business, the bank economists list some of the way? that big business is a help to government endeavor. First comes tax paying. Adding federal, stata. local and foreign taxes paid and charged aj costs, the 100 largest shelled out $88 billion in I960. They also collected for the government some $7 billion in excise or sales taxes, paid $1.3 billion in olo age pension and unemployment taxes, withheld about Si billion from employes for old age pension taxes and $4 billion for income taxes. But big business, say the bank The United Stales called on Moscow to reverse its position and "join the United States and the United Kingdom in their determined efforts to bring an end to the testing of nuclear weapons." Soviet Premier Khrushchev has sought to merge the nuclear test ban talks with a proposed new mullination conference on gen- general disarmament. President Kennedy has rejected this proposal. The two powers appear to be engaged in a campaign to fix the blame for failure of the prolonged Geneva talks, but neither will admit the conference has come to a dead end. Technically, it still is in session. The- Soviet note was presented to U.S. Ambassador Llewellyn Thompson in Moscow Wednesday and made public by the Soviets Friday. At i-about the same time the U.S. reply was announced, an influential Republican senator told the Senate the United States can no longer delay resumption of its own weapons testing program. Sen. Styles Bridges, R-N.H., said that during the almost three years that nuclear weapons tests have been suspended and the Geneva talks carried on, the Soviet Union may have gone ahead in secret on development of a neutron bomh—a completely new type of nuclear weapon. Bridges is chairman of the Senate GOP Policy Committee. Officials say privately the United States is reluctant to resume nuclear weapons tests, fearing it would subject the country to severe criticim throughout the world.

(AP) — nvestigators tried to find out today what led a young Air Force mother to try to kill her two small children and herself Thursday morning. Sheriff L. C. Young sent two deputies to Little Rock Air Force Base Infirmary to interview Airman 2.C. L. M. Coffey, whose wife, Joyce, 22, fatally shot her daughter, Sheila, 3, and herself. A son Michael, 5 survived a bullet wound near the heart and apparently was recovering. Officers had been unable to talk to the 23-year-old Coffey earlier because he was placed under sedation when he became hysterical after learning of the tragedy which took place at the off-base trailer home, where the family lived. An Air Force spokesman said that since the shooting took place off base the investigation was being left in the hands of civil authorities. • The shooting was discovered when Michael came to the trailer door and cried to neighbor children that his mother had shot him and his sister. That apparently was about two hours after the shooting had took place. The boy seemingly had been knocked unconscious by the shot, but revived. Jacksonville police said he was fully conscious when they arrived at the trailer. Mrs. Coffey and the girl ap- tconomists, nlso is increasingly parently were killed instantly. helping in vocational training, including some retraining program^ for workers displaced by automation or othe reconomic changes.

Coffey, whose home is Columbia, Tenn., was off duty but was grams, both on its own and in at work on a spare-time construc- collaboration with the govern-Uion job when the shooting took ment. Total -juch expenditures in (place. industry in l%o are put at $9.8 billion. And many of the 100 companies have operations abroad, which the bark economists say havo more plus than rninm signs in aiding ottf foreign relations. Mrs. Coffey left no note.

Diitongh, Die A Short Short Storv T.HE BOY WHO TALKED TOO MUCH By LESTER ARNO Charlie Sch?nl;onmoyer had been a problem, from the very beginning, dim-lit couldn't stop talking. As a baby he was com- p.-.lsive aboii! "Da-fir.*' At first H.9 parents mnrvclKl at the won- vlcr of it. Then. as ^ persisted, (heir wonder V.~,.,ened and their rerves grew taut.

To himself To the four walls of his room. To all outdoors when he was driven from,, the house. Ho had many jobs. He sold things from door to door. Rather, he talked about the things he had to sell from door to door—mag- a-/.ine subscriptions, aluminum- ware, food freezer plans. Charlie sold very few. Charlie always talked himsulf out of every sale. He caught on with o sideshow of a carnival. • You would think that Charlie had fount', his milieu. But when h" had the crowd warmed up ,nnc' ready te buy the tickets and go into the tent. Charlie kept on talking. And the crowd stayed on >n front of the t'lil a little too long and then drifted down the Midway without buying the tickets. Charlie was fired. One day he struck up a conversation svi'.b an Army recruiting sergeant and because the ser- gent svas behind in his quota for the month, he listened to Charlie untij Charlie had talked himself into .enlisting. The Army had no more kindly an ear toward Charlie than did. the civilians in the svorld outside. After repeated stays in the guardhouse and prolonged probings by the psychiati-jsis in Section 8, Charlie received a Discharge Without Honor. This happened on Charlie's 25th birthday. Tsventy five years qf; monologues, i<us 11 months of babbling infancy. For no one had ever really listened to Charlie. This gives one pause to reflect. Of the millions of words uttered in the hundreds of languages of this world, how many of these I words are ever heard and understood and reflrcted upon? But this is in tne realm of the philosopher? and has nothing to do with Charlie Schenkenmeyt-r. Charlie clidn't complain. Charlie wasn't even aware that no one listened to him. It wasn't important to him. Talking for him was as natural a function as breathing. So Charlie breathed and talked and talked and breathed and went on lalkm^. Now this fabls would be to no point and purpose if something happen to Charlie because of his compulsive speech pattern. Charlie hecami a messenger. He ran errands and chattered as he ran. One day he was sent with some letle-. heads to an office in the Tower Building.

THE END Hearing for Woman in Fatal Shooting STUTTGART, Ark. (AP) — A preliminary hearing for a Texas woman in the fatal shooting of her former husband has been postponed from 4 p.m. today to 10 a.m. Saturday. Municipal Judge Milton Robinson made the change in the arraignment date of Mrs. Mary North, 32, of Grand Prairie, Tex., at the request of relatives of the dead man, Ernest W. Vaughan of near De Witt. Vaughan is to be buried at Kenset today. It was the second postponement of the arraignment, Wednesday it was postponed to Friday because Mrs. North, broke into tears and was unable to gain her composure. No formal charge has been filed against Mrs. North. Police said she related she shot the 49-year- old Vaughan after he wounded her present husband and mother- in-law Monday night. The shooting climaxed a dispute over custody of a 9-year-old son of Mrs. North and Vaughan, who were divorced in 1957.

Faubus and Elrod, a stale senator from Siloam Springs, will meet next Tuesday for a preliminary discussion. Faubus said it wasn't his Idea originally to have (he Legislative Council plan for what should be done at (he special session "but I like it and I think it i.s the only feasible manner to do it." 'Why if I called a special session and turned the whole problem over to thorn (the Legislature) it might take weeks to unravel it," Faubus said. "Anyway, this is (ho purpose for which the Legislative Council was set up, and I think they can handle it wisely." Faubus and Elrod talked by telephone today and arranged tho Tuesday conference. Both mentioned July 31 as a possible date for the council meeting. A special legislature session is ing an introvert, I shy away from social gatherings, .so what can I do?

The State Hospital has been] •onsidered to have the most pressing needs.
