52nd Year
Anti-Tax Cut
Plea is Made
By Humphrey
hower administration told the Sen
ate today the income tax cut
passed by the House would be bad
medicine for "the little folks."
The administration viewpoint
Was given to the Senate Finance
Committee, already hostile to the
House-approved plan, by Secretary
of the Treasury George M. Humph
rey. Humphrey used such terms as
unjustified and "irresponsible'
gesture" in referring to the provv
sion to give a $20 a year tax cut
for all taxpayers and dependents.
He testified as the belief was
growing here that Mr. Eisenhower
will veto the tax bill if it goes
to him with the income tax reduc
tion voted by the House. The meas
ure also includes administration-
backed provisions to extend present
corporation income tax rates and
some excise tax rates scheduled to
go down April 1.
Compromise Reports
Meanwhile, Sen. George A.
Smathers (D-Fla) reported that
Senate Democrats are seeking a
compromise which would avoid a
party split over the measure. Some
Democratic senators have sided
with the administration in oppos
ing the cut at this time.
Humphrey told the senators that
the income tax cut should be
struck from the bill because it is
contrary to the public interest. He
said the administration has cut fed
eral spending and has moved to
ward a balanced budget.
The administration favors further
tax reduction, he said, only after
there are further cuts in spending
and economic growth increases
"To vote a $20 tax cut now
before we know we can afford It
next year and without any Indi
cation of where the money is com
ing from," he said, "Is nothing but
an irresponsible ; gesture;:: It '.is
based only on hopes as yet en.
tirely unrealized ..."
Humphrey said it is untrue that
the administration has neglected
"the little folks" as Democrats
have charged. He said all income
taxpayers got a tax cut last year
and that there were excise tax re
ductions and additional income tax
relief for some groups of individ
uals. Teenagers Admit
Theft of Gloves
Three local teenaged boys were
scheduled to appear in justice
court this afternoon to answer
charges of breaking into the Sulli
van Glove factory on Miller ave
nue outside the city limits.
The youthful trio was arrested
by Bend police Friday night, a few
hours after the factory was re
ported burglarized. Complaints
charging breaking and entering
were lodged against the three by
state police.
Brought to the city police sta
tion the three signed confessions
admitting they forced their way
into the plant. About 20 pairs of
gloves were reported stolen.
Police reported they found sev
eral pairs of gloves in the youths'
car. More gloves were found be
neath a rock at the base of Lava
Butte where the boys directed po
lice. Two of the boys are 16, the third
17. All were released from custody
pending the justice court hearing.
City police charged the three
with illegal possession of liquor.
The three will answer this charge
in juvenile court.
McCarthy Says
Ike Just Good
Office Holder
KENOSHA, Wis. (UP) Sen. Jos
eph R. McCarthy has called Presi
dent Eisenhower "just another
good office holder."
"If I find something wrong, I
want to discuss it," he added.
McCarthy and Wisconsin's sen
ior senator, Alexander Wiley, both
addressed a Knights of Columbus
golden Jubilee meeting last night
Wiley attacked the testimony of
former Communist Harvey Mat
uww that he lied in his accusa
tions against alleged Red sympath
izers as a Communist "scheme to
divide us."
McCarthy, speaking of his dif
ferences with the Eisenhower ad
ministration, said they did ' not
constitute a political Tight.
However, he said, "I will never
be a rubber stamp for my own or
any other administration."

Meat Marketing
Program Planned
Special to The Bulletin
REDMOND County home
makers will have opportunity Wed
nesday afternoon to learn how to
select and prepare the cheaper
cuts of meat to make them tasty
and attractive, in a meat market
ing demonstration at Pine Forest
grange hall in Bend. It will start
at 1:15 p.m.,. to last about two
hours, and Is open to everyone.
John Landers, O.S.C. livestock
specialist, assisted by Miss Doro
thy Sherrill, consumer education
specialist from the college, will
cut half a beef, describing the cuts
and showing how best to make
them more appetizing. The more
economical portions of a beef are
equal in nutrition value to steaks
and roasts, but sometimes need
more attention to make them as
tasty. Bend Meat Co. is furnishing
the half beef.
County Agent Gene Lear will
present information on the Ore
gon livestock picture, and Ellis
Edgington, new president of Des
chutes County Livestock Growers
association, is to report on plans
and objectives of that group.
Lear says the meeting should be
of interest to everyone, particular
ly homemakers and livestock pro
ducers. Similar demonstrations
have been held to date in about
twvthirds of Oregon counties, with
some 3300 persons attending. They
were instigated last year at the
suggestion of producers, retailers
and consumers in a state confer
ence at the college. There is no
admission tee.

The Socialists won just enough

the emperor a figurehead. Consti

But New Trouble
BONN, Germany, (UP) Vice
Chancellor Franz Bluecher offered
his .resignation to Chancellor Kon
rad Adenauer today in an open
cabinet split over passage last
night of the Paris arms treaties,
a spokesman for Bluecher an
nounced. The West German lower house
(Bundestag) passed the arms
treaties by resounding margins
and thus put the future of Ger
many a promised new 12 division
army squarely in the hands of the
temperamental National Assembly
of France. .
: But a related 1 Franco-German
agreement to put? the coal-rich
divided the nation and precipitated
an open rebellion in Adenauer's
four party coalition.
Bluecher is leader of the right
wing of the Free Democrats which
voted against the saar agreement.
He voted for it himself, but two
other FDP ministers abstained and
one voted against it in open rebel
lion against Adenauer.
The tension between Adenauer
and the FDP reached a new high
yesterday when FDP Chairman
Thomas Dehler launched a bitter
personal attack against Adenauer
and accused him of "lying" on the
Soar question.

Informed sources said Blueeher's
decision to quit was designed to
touch off a 'showdown inside ,the
FDP and result in Dehler's ouster
