Group Gives Report On Utah Tax Hikes SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) The 1975 Legislature raised taxes by $28.5 million and passed other bills that will cost even more in the future, the Utah Taxpayers Association lamented Friday. The UTA, which is financed by the state's major industrial and commercial firms, listed the tax hikes as: —$12.5 million, in individual income taxes; —$10 million in optional one-fourth cent county sales taxes; —$2 million in school transportation property taxes; —$1.4 million in hunting and fishing fees; -41 million in mining property taxes; —$750,000 in library property taxes; —$600,000 in transient room taxes; —$230,000 in driver education taxes. "The immediate cost of the • 1975 session is $28.5 million," said UTA executive secretary Jack Olsen. "Only time can tell what the long range impact will be. Certainly, the laws raising employes salaries, retirement and the $69 million bond will affect taxes." Congressional Delegates From Utah Back Hathaway WASHINGTON (UPI) Utah's congressional delegation has unanimously endorsed former Wyoming Gov. Stanley Hathaway's appointment as Secretary of Interior. Democratic Sen. Frank E. Moss and Reps. Allan Howe and Gunn McKay and Republican Sen. Jake Garn issued the endorsement after Hathaway met with the two senators and Howe. They discussed national parks, environmental concerns, federal land management and resource development, including the Kaiparowits power project in southern Utah and proposed wilderness areas in national parks. "I think Stan Hathaway represents a good balance in the concerns for preservation of our lands and careful, considered development of resources ... an attitude we need in this vital position," Moss said. "In addition, he knows the West and understands its needs.'' McKay, who was unable to attend the meeting because of illness, joined the other three Utahns in their endorsement.

UPI Telephoto Farm Labor FAA Gives Warning to Airport Subcommittee Schedules Hearings on Idaho Dam WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Senate Interior Subcommittee on Energy Research and Water Resources has scheduled hearings in Washington April 24 on legislation to clear the way for construction of a new American Falls dam. Idaho Sens. Frank Church and James A. McClure said the bill clarifies the intent of the reconstruction project as providing a water source for the general public and would eliminate some of the roadblocks to the start of construction. Congress authorized construction of a new dam on the Snake River at American Falls — using private funding —two years ago because the present structure was declared unsound. But work has been delayed because of red tape over the possible taxing of construction bonds. "Construction of this essential project has been delayed already far too long," Church and McClure said in a joint statement. "The well-being of the entire area whose future depends on available water for irrigation is at stake." Supply Hike Seen MURRAY, Utah (UPI) -The state director of employment services says there should be more people available to work on Utah farms this year because of the recession. Theodore R. Maughan told the Utah State Farm Labor Association that jobless industrial workers and laborers thrown out of work by hard times will probably provide a substantial pool of potential farm labor. Russell McDonald, the South Salt Lake youth coordinator, told the group that youths between 14 and 18 years of age could provide additional labor and urged farmers to hire them.

Four School Units Get U.S. Funds WASHINGTON (UPI) - The U.S. Department of Education has granted nearly $1 million in federal impact funds to four Utah school districts — San Juan, Jordan, Cache and Wayne.

The funds go to school districts in federally affected areas —those with high levels of government employment. Festival Chairman Gerald R. Sherratt said the board will provide counsel and advice to the university, which hosts the festival. Named to the board were Orpha S. Boyden, Ruth R. Draper, David W. Evans, Jackie Nokes, Boyd K.

In a letter to Cache County and Logan City commissioners, the FAA termed the denial of a permit to LaMontagne "unwarranted" and strongly warned the local governments to reconsider their action.

"I'd gladly take another dozen just like her." Jennie Le Ha arrived at the family of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Vlahos Friday, joining four other adopted children from foreign lands in the Vlahos' family. And today Jennie celebrates her third birthday— the happiest anniversary of her young life. She is the first Vietnamese orphan to be carried to Utah by the babylift. Jennie arrived in San Francisco from Vietnam Tuesday. Mrs. Maria Vlahos picked her up Wednesday, and Mrs Vlahos and Jennie were greeted by the rest of the Vlahos family at the Salt Lake International Airport Thursday night. "We're so thankful that we have the child," said Mrs. Vlahos. She said the young girl was from one of Vietnam's northern provinces, but had recently been in an orphanage in the south. The couple first adopted Nick, 12, a Greek orphan. The couple's other children are Genia, 9, from England; Peter, 8, from Spain; and Susie, 6, from Italy. A second military babylift baby is on his way to Utah. The seven-pound boy has been adopted by Mr. and Mrs. Neil WilkeyofOrem.
