expenditures on modernization of
production facilities-estimated to
cut revenues by $1.2 billion a year.
Kennedy made a strong pitch
for the bill at his morning news
conference even though it repre
sents considerably less than he
originally asked.
As submitted by the adminis
tration, the measure would have
balanced loss of revenue through
the business tax credit program
by tightening of collections in sev
eral areas in addition to the in
terest and dividend withholding.
These would have included vir
tual elimination of income tax de

As a result of changes made in

revenues are expected to fall

losses due to the incentive tax
credits. This is about the surplus
which the administration has
hopefully projected for its budget
for fiscal 1963.'
Hearings on the measure are

Wire Wrap-Up

World News
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina—With the military’s bless
ing, Jose Maria Guido took office as Argentina’s president
Thursday, replacing his banished friend Arturo Frondizi.
Guido, who has been president of the senate, was in line
for the job under the constitution but was reluctant to take
over. The military leaders who ousted Frondizi finally
persuaded Guido to take the presidency.
Frondizi, who embraced his tearful wife and peacefully
surrendered to arrest, was flown to imprisonment on a navy
island in the River Plate not far from Buenos Aires as the
military leaders finally carried out their long-threatened coup.
GENEVA — The 17-nation disarmament conference
agreed Thursday on a procedure for drafting a preamble for
a disarmament treaty but the Western powers expressed
some concern about the attitude taken by the Communists.
In British eyes, at least, Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister
Valerian A. Zorin seemed determined to plug the Russian
disarmament line from first to last, with little consideration
for the views of the non-Communist nations. The Americans
took a more hopeful view following a three-hour session.
U. S. News
WASHINGTON—The Public Health Service gave top
priority Thursday for use of oral polio vaccine in areas
threatened by epidemics.
Surgeon General Luther L. Terry said the Sabin oral
vaccine is especially valuable in combatting an epidemic be
cause it can be taken by mouth and quickly gives some pro
tection against spread of the disease.
He said widespread use of both polio vaccines “could lead
to early elimination of the disease.”
Texas News
DALLAS—The Texas attorney general ordered Thurs
day an investigation into the business dealings of Billie Sol
Estes, West Texas financial giant of Pecos Tex.
Estes, regarded as a multimillionaire at 37, was one of
the few outsiders who conferred this week in Dallas with a
group of national and local leading company representatives
about agricultural financing in the Southwest.
Atty. Gen. Will Wilson announced three assistants will
leave Austin immediately armed with letters of visitation
giving them the right to inspect books and records.
