Arhontat T1MCS. W*d., Jun* 5, 1974 ' Architect Turned Performer Sees Self On Verge Of Success DETROIT (AP -- Gamble! Rogers is a guitar-strumming, jnrn-spinning folk singer from the Smith. But he's no country boy -- not with his moneyed background »nd the years he spent in college studying the classics. On stage in his wrinkled Levis and Western shirt with pearl snap buttons, Rogers is pure hillbilly with a rich, southern drawl that tells about red- necked sheriff's deputies and truckstop sweethearts. But later, in an interview in his $9-a-night Detroit motel room and in his beat-up Mustang, he quotes Aristotle and ponders every word as though be were a college professor lecturing a f r e s h m a n class in philosophy. He believes he could have been just tJiat if he'd set his mind to it. The way he sees it, it's all just a matter of talent and discipline. And Rogers has backing to send him through both. He also had the financial three years at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville anc a n o t h e r year or so at Stetson University in Deland, Fla. The money came from his architect father, who designed Florida's Slate Supreme Court buildin. After majoring in arc' lecture, history and philosophy and studying writing, classica arts and letters, Greek drama and the American novel, Ro gers joined his father's Winter Park, Fla., operation. . PRACTICAL PROFESSION He ".pent at least . half-dozen years with that architectura firm befort permanently trad ing in his slide rule for a guitar pick. In between, there was a brie marriage, a child, a divorce and a try at writing the Grea American Novel, which he abandoned after about 70,00 words. He said be found the prota ganist of bis autobiographies work was "kind of dull and uninteresting" so he decided t "go out and live a little." "It's been so fascinating." he said, "that I've never gotten back to the novel." Rogers gambled on taking a plunge into show business. Si far, he says he has no regret: on leaving the settled life of an architect, despite living out of a suitcase 10 months of the'yeai and piling up some 177,001 WANT TO BUY A USED CAR? Did You Know .

"I seem to be on the verge of ommercial success," says Ro- ?ers, who has copyrighted at east 30 songs. "I have all the work that I can handle. I'm working for good people. I have an audience. And a person who does what I do can't ask for anything more than that," IRS Computer Picks Returns For Checking LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- J D Cook Jr. of Little Rock, district director of the Internal Reve- ue Service here, said Tuesday hat fax returns selected for an RS audit this year were chosen primarily by a "discriminate function system." He said in a prepared state ment that every tax return was run through a computer program designed to monitor specific items mostly likely to con*ain errors. The new system has been so successful that only 25 per cent of the returns that have been audited this year have not required a change in the tax payment. Last year 40 per cent of he returns audited did not quire a change. Cook'said, however, 'that not ill audits of tax returns result n more tax being paid. Last year 1.8 million audits ·esulted in an additional $5.1 litlion in tax revenues, he said, "ook said $275.7 million in 'unds were made following 841,000 audits and 456,705 audits re quired no change in tax. The new system assigns weights hy formula to specific items -- mainly ones where de ductions are most often claimed. Those returns receiv ing the highest scores under the system are most likely to con tain error and are set aside for possible audit. Cook said. Items often found in error in elude failing to exclude the firsi J100 in a casualty loss rteduc tion, error in computation ol the self-employment tax. claim ing utility taxes as deductions and improper application child care deduction rules. 4.

Engineers Want Poinseft Forest For Easement LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- The Memphis district of the U.S. A r m y Corps of Engineers wants to l a k e 30 acres of a Poinsett County forest for con- WASHINGTON (AP) -- The government's list of subversive rgani/ations, born of the post- Vorld War II Red scare, has ·ecn killed as serving no useful purpose. President Nixon issued an executive order Tuesday deetar- ng that the list "is hereby abolished and shall not be used or any purpose.' 1 The action prevents government officials from routinely asking job applicants whether hey have ever belonged to any of the 300 groups designated subversive. Though most government department* and agencies had dropped such questions, the De ense Department had contin- ied to use the list in screening ob applicants, said Kevin Vlaroney, head of the Justice Department's internal security section. Nixon's order does allow government officials to ask job ap pHcants whether they have ever belonged to the Communist party and to inquire in general terms about membership in "any foreign or domestic organization . . . which unlawful!) advocates" violence to over throw the government or deprive others of their constitutional rights. Maroney said the new stand ard heightens the burden q proof for rejecting a job appli cant as a potential securit 1 risk. But he noted that the order does little more than f o r m a l i z standards laid down by the Su preme Court from 1951 on. Ally. Gen. William B. Saxbe said Nixon's order allows gov ernmenl personnel security pro grams to continue with "ade quate safeguards for the right of all individuals," Saxbe said he recommendec doing away with the lis created by the Justice Depart ment at President 1 Harry S T r u m a n ' s order in 1947. He sai Truman was wrong to allow th department "to assemble th- list without the consideration for due process ..." But lv said T r u m a n had some jusifi cation for his action because o "a bewildering series of prob lems in the upheavals of th post-war period." Saxbe " said the designate! groups, ranging from the Com munist party USA and the K Klux Klan to such obscure or ;anizations as Ehe Nations Hue Star Mothers of America "were of substantial concern t the government before, durin; and after the war years."

However, the state Environmental Preservation Commission, which controls the land, deferred action on the request Tuesday.

It is the only tract of forest and left in the county that has not been cleared for f a r m i n g . At the suggestion of state Son. Bill Walmsley of Batesville. the commission decided to wait for an attorney gener- nt the ease- al's opinion on whether it has the amhorify to granl the casement since it has only tempora ry jurisdiction of the land. The commission also wants an environmental report from the engineers on the effects of the proposed drainage system on the forest. The commission also voted lo ask Gov.

(AP) -A federal grand j u r y will sop get evidence in connection wit an alleged extortion hoax in th case of a banker who claime he was kidnaped and held fo ransom, police say. J a m e s Longo, Hallandal chief of police, said Tuesda the FBI had told him that th case of Albert Dantzler, 43 would he presented to a gran jury in Fort I^uderdale t h i week or next. "The direction of t h e evi dence points to extortion an the criminal filing of a false re port lo the police." Longo said On April 19, Dantzler tele phoned associates at the Cit National B a n k of Hallandale north of Miami, saying he wa being held for $60.000 ransom. He gave directions for deliv ering the money and was no heard from until the next day when he showed up in neart Fort Liuderdale. He told polic there that he eluded his abduc tors bv jumping into the Allan tic Ocean from a small boa and swimming to shore. The ransom was never pai Several days later, source told The Associated Press tha Dantzler was being investigate! Reagan Exits Governors Conference Early SEATTLE (AP) -- During his vo days at the National Gover- ors Conference, California . Ronald Reagan held two rcss conferences, made a pcech lo a Seattle group and Hacked Sen. Edward M. Kcn- edy's health care plan. Then, he left for California efore the conference closed Vednesday with adoption of the overnors' policy positions for he next year. Before he left, he made clear is opposition to the views of z icayy majority of governors fa 'oring national health insur- nce, a strong federal land use illl and broad action in the ield of campaign reform ant governmental ethics. He also left an obvious im session of a 1976- presidential candidacy, though he said ai Tuesday's news conference "i s far too early" for talk abou his making the race to havi much meaning. Reagan added that if it con' .inuey a year from now, he wil lave to "see how widespread i t. how deep is it and does i warrant my making such a de ;ision." Reagan, however, carefulb avoided testing any of his idea; among his fellow governors. In recent years, he has found him self in a distinct minority on najor policy questions, mainly hose of a broader federal rol on health or welfare, or for in creased federal financial help. Too muny of the governor ivant to take "a tin cup" to Washington, he told the new conference. "They talk state rights but they want it boll ways." He indicated he would tak his "slates rights" views lo th country in the stepped up na tional speaking schedule h plans after his term as gover nor ends in January. Althoug he wouldn't say so, the them also seems certain to be prime one in any future presi dcntial hid. It indicates he is banking o a belief there is more suppor Reunion Set ST.

None of the governors upported his attack on Kennc- y's health care legislation, and one marked his criticism of ellow Republican Gov. Tom Mct'all of Oregon on land us*.' That may explain Reagan's eagerness to face the press. His Monday session repeated the attack on Kennedy, while the Tuesday meeting began with a statement on land use.
