Lewis gave the ILA $50,000 for ts campaign against the ILA-AFL for the dock representation election Dec. 22 and 23. 'Bobo' Denies Demand for $70,000,000 NEW YORK (ff) — Barbara Sears Bobo Rockefeller) was quoted today as saying it Is "real nonsense" to assert she wants a 10 million dollar settlement from her estranged oil millionaire husband.

Dunaway said the agreement of ast year called for Rockefeller to provide for his wife and their son, iVinthrop Paul. 5, trusts totaling 3'/j millions, $70,000 annually or an alternative trust of $500,000.

Millikin also said In an Interview he feels Congress should proceed very carefully before voting to lower the social security tax back to the level prevailing up to Jan. 1, as the administration has asked.

Favors Tax Millikin said he personally fa vored the l'/ 2 per cent .rate. But he said he wanted to see "all the figures" on administration plans to broaden social security coverage before he decides whether the 2 per cent tax is needed. George, on the other hand, said he favors freezing the tax at l'/ 2 per cent for two more years. He said the present l-billion-dollar trust fund is ample to assure social security payments for at least the next 10 years. Flanders and Sen. Carlson (R- Kan), who also serves on the Finance Committee, said they favor the 1>2 per cent rate, and Carlson said he as confident there were sufficient votes in the Senate to put the tax back down to the 1953 level. However, such a move would tiave to originate in the House. There, some key Republicans in- luding Chairman Daniel A. Reed (R-NY) of the Ways and Means Committee favor the 2 per cent rate. Rep. James C. Davis (D-Ga) announced he would offer a bill to restore the 1V4 per cent rate, with refunds Jan.l.
