THURSDAY, JUNE 14, 19'. 3 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 18 CONGRESSMAN KIKA de la GARZA Reports WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Federal tax system as it now stands places a severe bur- den on small business enter- prises, which as we know in South Texas are the backbone of our economy. Generally speaking, big business payo a lower rate of taxes than small business. Obviously, this is not a healthy situation. Unless it is changed, we face the possibility that ma- ny small concerns eventually will be forced out of business and many potential new enter- prises will never come to life. With these considerations in mind, I have introduced in the House a bill to provide income tax simplification, reform, and relief for small business. Its principal provisions, briefly stated, are as follows: Establishing permanent gov- ernment and small business advisory machinery for simpli- fying tax laws and tax forms. Setting lower rates for smal- ler business, and particularly for new small business firms; Promo...

! 1 * $ 1 OEO Head Ruled In Illegally THURSDAY, JUNE 14, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 19 WASHINGTON - A federal judge has struck anoth- er blow at the Nixon adminis- tration's plans to shut down the Office of Economic Opportun- ity, but time and money contin- ue to run out on the antipoverty program. U.S. District Court Judge Wil- liam B. Jones ruled Monday that OEO Acting Director How- ard J. Phillips is serving ille- gally, and eijoined him from any further actions in tlat ca- pacity. OEO officials declined to comment on Jones' action 'intil they had an opportunity to read the decision. The decision opened the pos- sibility that new legal moves would l>e made to nullify some of Phillips' actions designed to carry out his presidential man- date to close down the agency. Judge Jones ruled that Phil- lips lias served illegally since Jan. 29, 1973, saying tlat Nixon did not submit Phillips' name to the Seinte as nominee for di- rector as required by legisla- tion creating OEO.

THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 5 Statistics Say Marriage More Popular Than Ever .. Perhaps not as many couples insist on "Here-Comes-the- Bride" tradition, but federal statistics show that the institution of marriage is more prevalent than it ever was. A report on national marriage trends issued by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare shows that the number of marriages in the United States is increasing after having been relatively stable during the 1960-71 period. The latest federal statistics show that for the first half of 1972, the number of marriages was up 4.5 per cent from the figures for the first half of 1971. The rate of those periods was up 3.1 per cent. In June alone, traditionally the most popular month for marriages, 262,000 ceremonies were performed, an increase of about 3 per cent above June 1971. "We expect marriages to increase through the '70's,' said Miss Alice M. Hetzel, chief of marriage and divorce statistics at the National Cent...

THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 6 'Removal' Of Democratic WASHINGTON - The disgrace and removal of the Democratic party's most ex- perienced professional was the real goal of the Nixon cam- paigners who planned the Wa- tergate raid, Senate investiga- tors have been told. In testimony that linked one former official after another to the Watergate wiretapping and its coverup, Jeb Strart Magr- uder said final approval for the espionage Plan that all involved knew to be illegal came from John N. Mitchell, then attorney general. The target, Magruder said, was Lawrence F. O'Brien, then the Democratic national chair- man and a foe much-feared for his political expertise. The idea, he said, was to gain infor- mation that would discredit O'Brien and thus the Demo- crats. Confessing publicly to con- spiracy, obstruction of justice and perjury, and protected from prosecution by a grant of immunity, Magruder said he had relayed details of the es- pionage plan to the office of...
