Surge In Profit-Taking Sales
On Stock Market Is Predicted
WASHINGTON (1711) The
Treasury today anticipates a big
surge in "profit-taking" sales on
the stock market next year.
Reason: It expecls Congress lo
make a sharp cut, effective next
Jan. 1, in the taxes levied on the
safe from stocks, houses and
other property.
The tax release was approved
Friday by the House Ways
Means Committee for inclusion in
the tax revision and reduction
bill it is drafting.
The tax saving ranging from
16 to 20 per cent would applv
only to the sale of, property held
by the owner for at least t w o
years.
Expect Selling Spree
Although the legislation ulti
ma'.ely would lose almost $100
million a year in annual revenue,
the Treasury said the immediate
result would be a selling spree
that would boost Treasury tax
revenues next year by more than
$300 million.

Planes Keep Vigil
In Wake Of Storm
, By United Pratt International
Scout planes went out this mor
ning to look for new, lightning
set fires that may be smouldering
in the . wake of a new wave of
thunderstorms that swept south
western Idaho late Friday.
A dispatcher for the Boise Na
tional Forest reported eight new
fires from the electrical storm,
two of them in the mountain
Home district, four in the Idaho
City dislrict and two in the Gar
den Valley district.
Pilots made three dangerous,
nfter-siindown Bcntonile drops on
the worst of the eight, in the Ida
ho City district north of Boise.
Four smokejumpers were dropped
on that blaze.
The Bureau of Land Manage
ment was uncertain how many
new fires may have broke out al
though it did count threo of four
small ones in the wake of the
storm. It sent planes aloft this
morning to look for new fires.
These revenue forecasts and
the compulation of the 16 to 20
per cent range in tax savings
were based solely on the commit
tee's action in approving revision
in the formula for taxing capital
gains. They assume that individ
ual tax rates to which the for
mula is linked will remain nl
existing levels.
But an across-the-board cut in
individual tax rates is the prime
ingredient of the administration
hacked tax bill which the com
mittee is drafting.
$10 Billion Saving!
The committee plans to add
this final ingredient next week in
wrapping up a tax package that
is expected to provide net t a x
savings of close to $10 billion for
individuals and corporations in
two annual steps starting next
Jan. 1.
Friday's action will boost the
total tax savings on profits from
sale of property held for at least
two years appreciably above 20
per cent for almost every seller.
The exception will be those
who, under the new schedule,
still find themselves in a tax
bracket of 50 per cent or higher.
Only the latter would be limited
to tax relief of 16 per cent on
their sale profits.

Kefauver "a crusader and an
idealist." He said his contribution
to the betterment and wel
fare of the nation will be long re
membered. .
Sen. Everett Dirksen, 111., GOP
Senate leader said:
"Nothing has so distressed me
in a long time as the news of tho
passing of Sen. Kefauver. I en
tertain high respect and deep af
fection for him."
He failed twice lo vin the pres-
lucnuai nomination. Once in 1952
and again in 1956. But in 1956 he
straucd a knockdown convention

Kennedy as Adlai Stevenson's
running mate.

U.S. Girl Nabbed
On Drug Charge
HOME fUPI) - Italian police
moved against an international
ring today on leads developed
from information supplied by an
American girl under arrest on
drug charges.
Authorities identified the girl as
Barbara .loan Spark, 22, of Pacif
ic Palisades, Calif., and said she
had thousands of dollars worth
of mariiuana in her suitcase
when picked up here last Thurs
day. The Italian press pictured
her as an out-and-out amateur
in the illicit drug trade.
"Please don't tell my parents,"
she was quoted as begging.
Police said that under question
ing the California girl supplied
them with information that led to
the arrest of two men in Home
Friday.
French police, in a development
so far not connected to the arrests
in Italy, picked up two Canadians
Friday preparing to leave Pairs
on separate flights from Oily Air
port. Thirteen pounds of heroin
were found in their luggage, po
lice said.
Today it was learned that
French police, acting on a tip
from Canadian authorities, have
picked up a suspect believed to
have supplied the pair. The sus
pect was identified as Roger
Courier, a resident of Paris and
the Cole D'Azur who was de
scribed as "one of the principal
drug smugglers in the world."
They said he apparently was part
of an international ring bringing
drugs from the Middle East to
New York and Chicago via Mar
seilles, Paris, Montreal and To
ronto. Farm Labor Force Up

None Hurt In Two
County Accidents
State police investigated two non
injury accidents in the southern
part of Douglas County early Fri
day evening.
The first occurred about 6:30
p.m. on US 99 Bit in Tri Cily when
a vehicle driven by Steven Ells
worth Hall, 21, of Myrtle Creek,
struck the rear of a vehicle driven
by Linda Kay Birenbaum, 17, also
of Myrtle Creek. State plice said
Miss Birenbaum had stopped to
make a left turn when her car was
struck by the other car.
The second occurred about 7 p.m.
one mile south of Azalea on Inter
state Highway 5. State police said
a vehicle driven by Earl Lake Ri
gor, -15, of Pacificia, Calif., was
traveling north when Rigor lost
control of the car after hitting the
shoulder uf the road and began
swerving back and forth across
both lanes of traffic. They said a
truck towing a trailer driven .by
Vincent Thomas Sakarida, 41, of
Mcdford, was traveling south and
pulled into the northbound lane to
avoid Rigor. Rigor then crossed
into the northbound lane again and
struck the trailer, causing the Ri
gor car to roll and become totally
demolished, police said.

had labelled him the "pet coon

The Tennesseean also made the
hand shake something of a potent
political weapon. He would shake

Took Underdog Role
But the key to his personality
was his underdog role. He
championed the man in the street
in his battles against crime, and
monopolistic practices.
Kefauver always had his eye
on the White House. He failed in
two attempts to win the Demo
cratic presidential nomination.
But he did manage to win second
place on the ticket with Adlai
Stevenson in 1956.
The failure to win the presi
dential nomination in 1952 and
1956 was a bitter pill for Kefauv
er. But he staged an all out fight
at an "open convention" to win
delegates to the 1956 Democratic
convention. The man he defeated
in the fight was President Kennedy.

Full Candor
Is Promised
In Ban Talks
WASHINGTON (UPI) Hubert
H. Humphrey, Senate Democra
tic whip, pledged today that
"nothing will be held back" when
administration spokesmen discuss
the possible gains and risks of
the nuclear test-ban treaty.
The Minnesota lawmaker said
administration leaders have made
it clear in early discussions that
they are ready to "cooperate
wholeheartedly" with senators
who want to .air all pertinent
questions before a' ratification
vote. Humphrey said he has in
sisted on "complete candor."
Withhold Judgment '
Many Senate Republicans have
withheld judgment on the all-but-underground
ban of nuclear test
ing pending a detailed explora
tion of the issues involved. A
Democratic expert on weapons
development, Sen. Henry M.
Jackson, D-Wash., took a similar
line in a Senate speech Friday.
Jackson said the Senate must
get "the same type and range of
evidence" which convinced Presi
dent Kennedy that the treaty is
in the nation's best interest. The
senator, who heads the weapons
subcommittee of the Senate-House
Atomic Energy Committee, listed
a series of questions which he
proposes to pursue.
Stating that the administration
plans to hold nothing back, Hum
phrey said in an interveiw that
"whatever risks are involved will
be outlined."
"Whatever gains are involved
will be outlined too," he said.
To Produce Witnesses
Senate GOP Leader Everett M.
Dirksen, 111., told newsmen he be
lieves President Kennedy is
"fully prepared" to produce the
necessary witnesses to testify
that the treaty will enhance na
tional security as the President
has declared.
Dirksen said he did not know
exactly what U.S. military lead
ers would say about the treaty.
But he indicated he expects Ken
nedy to produce Pentagon wit
nesses who will endorse the agree
ment. Jackson has said in the past
that if there is a choice between
a strong military deterrent and a
test ban treaty, the deterrent
must have first priority.

NEW YORK (UPI) Ailing j
former President Herbert C. Hoo
ver celebrates the 89th anniver
sary of his birth today with a
few close relatives and friends.
Hoover, instead of holding his
traditional birthday eve news
conference, issued a brief mes
sage to fellow Americans from
his skyscraper apartment in
Manhattan. It said, in part:
"We have a great way of life
let's keep it that way."

Gets Special Tribute
In Washington, for the second
straight year, Sen. Carl T. Cur

to Hoover in the Senate Friday
for his "exemplary life."
The 31st president, a Republi
can who served in the White
House from 1929 to 1932, was
critically ill with a gastro-intestinal
disorder for several days
last June.
Since then, his physicians said
Hoover "has become stronger
and is able to work at his desk
for a short period each day. The
number of his visitors still is lim
ited, and. . .it is advisable that
he should not assume any public
obligations at the present time."
