He told the legislators he b lieves "both of our great parties can back it. Future Tax Cuts Seen As for tax cuts in addition the income tax reductions and e piration of the excess profits lev which were effective Jan. I, th President'said: "Future reductions in taxes ca and will be made.' But he conditioned reductions o the spending cuts he predicted. A another poin^he declared: "Despite the substantial loss < revenue in the coming fiscal yea resulting from (Jan. 1) tax r<_ duction now in effect and tax ad justments which I shall propose our reduced spending will mov the new budget closer to a Da! ance." The President said the tax re vision program will be set forth i detail in his Jan. 21 budget mes sage. Informed sources have pre dieted cuts totaling about V/ 2 bi "ion dollars annually. Calling today for a thorough re vision of the entire tax. structure Elsenhower declared: "We should now remove th more glaring tax inequities, par icularly on small taxpayers; re duce restraints on the growth o small business; and make othe changes that will encourage initfa '.ive, enterprise and production." On the other side of the picture lowever, the President said again that corporation income • taxe ihould be kept at the current rate if 52 per cent for another yea nstead of being allowed to drop b 47, and that excise taxes on uch items as liquor, tobacco, gas illne and automobiles—also sched iled for an April 1 cuU-should be maintained at prevailing rates. Gained Initiative On the foreign policy and national defense fronts, where Eisenhow er already has made an open bic for cooperation from the Democrats, he said America has gained the initiative during the last year in the struggle against communism—and means to keep it. "American freedom," he declared, "is threatened so long as the world Communist conspiracy exists in its present scope, power and hostility." Referring to his Dec. 8 United Nations speech calling on Russia to join with the TJ. S. and other atomic powers in creation of an international atomic pool for peaceful use, the President said: "A truly constructive Soviet reaction will make possible a new start toward an era of peace, and away from the fatal road toward atomic war." In his prepared text, Eisenhower took no note of Moscow's announcement last niKht of willingness to join the United States in discussion of the President's proposal in Washington. Three Sections Today's message was in three main sections dealing with protection of "the freedom of our people," maintenance of a strong, growing economy, and "the human problems of the individual citizen." In the first section the President reviewed the world situation and "ound it encouraging. He said the United States is prepared to meet any renewal of armed aggression n Korea, that American bases in Okinawa will be maintained Indef- nltely, and that he will ask congress to authorize "continued military assistance" to Indochina. "We also shall continue military and economic aid to the Nationalist government of China," he said. The President again stressed the desirability of bringing the European Defense Army Into being. .Eisenhower's demand that convicted conspirators against the government forfeit their U.S. clti. zenship was aimed squarely at the Communists. '!The subversive character of the Communist party in the United States has been clearly demonstrated in many ways, including court proceedings," he said. The President said Atty. Gen. Brownell soon will go before Congressional committees to recommend "needed additional weapons with which to combat subversion Transition In that section of the message dealing with the administration's determination to sustain prosperity, Eisenhower — in what appeared to be an oblique allusion to increased unemployment — declared: "At this moment, we are in a transition from a wartime to' a Deacetime economy. I am confident that we can complete this transition without serious interup- tion in our economic growth. "But we shall not leave this vital matter to chance. Economic weparedness is fully as important a the nation as military preparedness." Eisenhower renewed his call for lostal rate increases, and he said toe federal government is continu- ng its ''central role" In the highway construction program. In the section of his speech on .he problems of the individual citir zen, Eisenhower mentioned plans or Taft-Hartley law changes, expanded unemployment compensa- ion and social security coverage, broadening of hospital and medical nsurance programs, federal aid to tales which can't provide enough chool buildings, and a housing program designed to provide, mong other things, insurance on ong-term mortgage loans with a mall down payment for low In- :ome families.

No Objections Mentioned Last night's Soviet communique, eporting talks yesterday and las hursday beween Bohlen and) Mol- ov, said Bohlen sought prelimi- ary atom conversations in Wash- ngton before Jan. 25 or at Berlin uring the foreign ministers' get- igether. At yesterday's meeting, the com- imiique said, Molotov told Bohlen ussia "considers it desirable" to it going and agreed to start in Washington, There was no mention in the immunique of the Soviet objec- on that Eisenhower's plan does ot go far enough.

Union-Busting Racketeer Mixed In Reuther Case Perrone Expected To Surrender And Face Charges DETROIT W-Santo (Sam Perrone, union-busting Detroit racketeer, was expected to surrender today to face charges in the 1948 shooting case of CIO President Walter P. Reuther which threatened to involve "prominent Detroit names" in management «nd union circles. Perrone and his son-in-law, Carl Renda, who both built scrap metal fortunes, were charged yesterday with two others in the attempted assassination of the union chieftain. Some police officials predicted ;hat "prominent Detroit names" would figure in the case and might even replace the four "John Does" now listed on the warrant. Police, who broke the long investigated case wide open yesterday, have not given any hint to the identities of the other four. In 1951, Perrone and four asso dates were charged with conspiracy to smash union organizing at the Detroit Michigan Stove, Co, Perrone pleaded guilty in May, 1952, and was placed on probation Conspiracy Charged Renda, who has no police record, figured in the Kefauver crime committee hearings with his father-in- law. The hearings partly ripped the mask off labor racketeering in Detroit. The committee heard how Perrone, nearly illiterate as a witness, had a $100,DOO-a-year contract with Briggs Manufacturing Co. to haul scrap metal away from the company. The contract was terminated by Briggs shortly after the committee hearings. The Detroit Times said today the prosecution will attempt to prove that the conspiracy to kill Reuther, then president of the CIO United Auto Workers, had two motives. One motive involved an attempt by gamblers to control numbers and horse betting in all automobile plants, and the other involving labor disputes. The Times said it will be contended that some of the alleged conspirators were in the plot for one motive and some for the other. Perrone vanished from his fashionable home In suburban Grosse Pointe Shores eight hours before police began their search to arrest him. 6 Killed, 8 Hurt As Large Navy Plane Crashes PANAMA, Panama (*—Six men were killed and eight Injured In the flaming crash of a U. 8. Navy photographic plane in a Jungle area near the Trans-Isthmian Highway last night. The four- en glne plane was bringing a photo reconnaissance platoon to the Canal Zone area from Miramar, Calif. Capt. William A. Thorn, com mandlng officer at the Coco Solo Naval Base, announced the casualties. Thorn said it appeared the plane had undershot by 2'/ 2 miles its destination — France Air Force Base near Colon, on the Caribbean side of the Isthmus. He said Levi Anderson and James Hyatt, two farmers living near the crash area, did, "heroic service" in dragging several of the Injured men to safety from the flaming wreckage. The survivors were taken to Colo Solo Naval Hospital with severe burns. Names of the casualties were withheld pending notification of next of kin. Russia said the bomb should be outlawed, much as poison gas was, under international pledges not to use it. ITTLE LIZ— MOX - Theatre - On West Main St. In BJytheville Show Starts Weekdays 7=00 Sat.

Ambassador Cautions of New Communist Danger in Italy By JOHN SCALI WASHINGTON «t—Ambassador CIar« Boothe LUCB has cautioned top official! here there Is new danger in Italy of slowly rising learned today. Mrs. Luce, who conferred yesterday with President Elsenhower, la'reported to be urging continued American economic and military aid to Italy to bolster its pro-Western government. Neither Mrs. Luce nor the President, reliable sources said, be- threat that Italy's already powerful Communist party can seize power. The ambassador is confident, 11 is said, that Hie current political crisis caused by Italian Premier Giuseppe Pella's resignation can be solved quickly without playing into Communist hands. However, she is reported concerned about the long range threat posed to Italian democracy by the new, non-violent tactics adopted by Italy's Reds. By exploiting Italy's serious unemployment problem and pressuring non-Communist unions to cooperate in strikes. The Red leaders are reported to have gained added influence and prestige in Italy during the past year. This opens up the grim possibil- state. Ity, she is said to fear t,hat the Communists might actually b* able to take over the country In * year or two if there la an unexpected worsening of Italy's economic and political plight. As a demonstration of American support for Italy's present govern- mcnt. the state Department late yesterday announced it was draft. ing "a substantial program" of defense orders for Italian factories as well as a plan lor limited economic eld. No specific figures were disclosed. But responsible Informant* said the combined program would' total about 300 million dollars during the next six months. This would be some 40 million dollars less than Italy got during a similar period last year. Foreign aid specialists In the El- senhower administration believe this amount should be sufficient for this fiscal year, provided a, follow-up program can be devised. for the 12-month period beginning next July 1. Mrs. Luce has reported during her round of conferences here that Russia is pouring millions of dollars into Italy to back up Us dream of turning it into a .Communist.
