The approving vote sends the nomination to the Senate, where Russell said it would be taken up Monday.

Holds Defense Tost Nitze, a former investment banker and veteran of government service, is now assistant secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs. Russell announced that the committee, without a dissenting vote, approved the nomination of William P. Pundy, Nitze's deputy, to succeed him as assistant secretary, and taht of St. Louis industrialist Robert H. Charles to become assistant secretary of the Air Force for Material. Nitze ran Into some buzz saw questions at a hearing on his nomination Nov. 7 at which he testified he never had advocated appeasement of Russia and strongly favors more and better balanced military strength for the United States. Thurmond and other senators quizzed him about a speech he had made at a California national strategy seminar in 1960 outlining what he called a "grand fallacy" of alternatives to adequate U.S. military power. Exceedingly Tough Nitze testified that in mentioning second rate nuclear weapons power for the United States as one of the controversial alternatives he had sought only to stimulate discussion and illustrate the danger of military weakness. He insisted the speech itself made clear that he was not advocat ing such things, and said he never would. Russell, who was one of the Nov. 7 critics, said he had voted for the nomination mainly because Nitze's associates in government have assured him that "for an intellectual, he is an exceedling toughnose, two fisted man A 'big preparedness man' who would not favor divesting our military strength."

Micnoena. 36, of 616 Sixth St., Pitcairn, a former junior electrician at the Pitcairn relay shop of the Pennsylvania Railroad.

McVay, claimed that while Mignogna suffered no apparent injury from the electricity, the incident aggravated a pre-existing neurosis or nervous condition.

Balzarini, claimed the company was negligent in not warning the trucker of the movement of the crane. Croscost suffered a hrain concussion and other in juries, according to the suit. Mercantile Tax Hedged (Continued from Page 1) men reportedly are ready to vote to repeal the tax if the county agrees to some kind of relief. Two councilmen are in favor of keeping the tax and spending any money made available by county aid on other things, according to City Hall reports. Mayor Barr emphasized that the city would drop only its mercantile tax on wholesale business, not the one on retail business, if the county made it possible. The city levies a one mill mercantile tax on gross wholesale business and a two-mill tax on gross retail business. The latter will definitely be in effect in 1964, according to the mayor's budget staff. Merchants complain that the city's mercantile tax puts them at a competitive disad-vantage with out-of-Pitts-burgh businessmen. They also protest that it must be paid even if a firm loses money for the year. City Lost Industries The city has statistics showing that a number of businessmen, such as manufacturers' representatives and others in the wholesale field, have moved their offices outside the city limits to escape the tax. Mayor Barr said he hopes to present his 1964 budget recommendations to City Council on Monday. He will recommend the creation of a $10 occupational privilege tax-to balance the city budget, which will include a pay raise for employes. New Norelco Beauty Sachet 25LS. A home beauty salon!
