Taxes

Not Likely

Study Apollo 4 Data

t

WASHINGTON (P) - Senate
Majority Leader Mike Mansfield
conceded yesterday that Congress
probably will not increase income
taxes this year, but said President
Johnson undoubtedly will press
the issue in 1968 "when it will be
far worse" in terms of dollars and
of politics.
The Montana Democrat said a
tax" increase request next year
might have to be larger than the
$7 billion the President now
seeks and the question will be

even more troublesome in an elec-
tion year.
'Johnson seeks a 10 per cent in-.
come tax surcharge to combat
inflation and help pay for the
Vietnam war. But the measure is
locked in the House Ways and
Means Committee, and appears
likely to remain there.
"He hasn't given up," Mans-
field said of the President. "He's
still trying to get it, but with
every passing day the odds climb
against him.

"If we don't face up to it this
year, we'll have to do it next year
when it will be far worse," he
said. "It will be more unpopular.
It may well be a bigger tax in-
crease."
The size of a 1968 tax bill,
Mansfield said, would depend on
the amount of money Johnson
and Congress can cut from fed-
eral spending.
Spending Cut
Federal spending is a key issue
in the Ways and Means Commit-
tee, which originates all tax legis-
lation. Its members are talking in
terms of a spending cut of $5
billion to $10 billion as the price
for action on the tax boost.
"I'm worried about this eco-'
nomic situation," Mansfield said
in an interview. He said inflation
this year will boost the cost of
living by about 3.1 per cent.
But acknowledging that pros-
pects for action now are dim,
Mansfield said: "I think the mem-
bers have their minds pretty well
made up."
"I still think a tax increase is
necessary," he added.
December Adjournment
"I think on the Senate side, this
has been a responsible, stop, look
and - listen session," Mansfield
said. He said Congress probably
will adjourn about mid-December.
Mansfield acknowledged that
Johnson proposals are having
more difficulty in the House. He
said that is due in part to the
Republican gains in the last con-
gressional elections.
But he said the House, with its
economy drive, may provide a
more accurate reflection of the
nation's mood than does the
Senate.
"You may not like what they're
doing," Mansfield said, "but it's
quite possible that they reflect
very accurately what the people
are thinking."

CAPE KENNEDY, Fla.-Apollo
4, the unmanned moonship that
rode America's maiden Saturn 5
super-rocket deep into space, yes-
terday headed toward Hawaii as
jubilant flight controllers began
assessing reams of data collected
on its 8%-hour mission.
The cone-shaped spacecraft, its
heat shield charcoal black in places
from a fiery 25,000 mile-an-hour
re-entry through earth's atmos-
phere, was pronounced "in very
good shape" by space officials as
it rode aboard its prime recovery
ship toward Pearl Harbor.
National Aeronautics and Space
Administration spokesmen said the
capsule was expected td arrive at
the port late Saturday and remain
there for about three days until
technicians deactivate electrical
systems and steering rockets.
From there, it was to be trucked
to Hickam Air Force Base, Hawaii,
and flown to Long Beach, Calif.,
near its final destination at the
Downey, Calif., plant of North
American Rockwell Corp., prime
spacecraft contractor.
Space agency officials said
enough data was collected during
the triumphant first flight of the
towering Saturn 5 and its Apollo
moonship payload to fill an en-
cy clopedia during each minute of
its eight-hour, 36-minute mission.
Air Force Maj. Gen. Samuel C.
Phillips, who manages America's
Apollo man to the moon program
emphaisized the team effort in
talking about major achievements
such as that recorded Thursday by
the super-rocket.

UNITED NATIONS, N.Y.-The
cardinal aim of Arab policy is Is-
rael's withdrawal from the Arab
territories overrun last June, but
developments in recent days make
it apparent this objective is dis-
tant, if attainable at all.
The Israelis are demanding di-
rect talks with the Arab nations.
They declare permanent frontiers
can be set only in the context of
an over-all solution of the many
complex problems agreed to in
face-to-face bargaining and em-
bodied in peace treaties.

"This was, I believe," Phillips
said, "the most powerful rocket,
perhaps the most powerful ma-

ond, that's ever performed.
"You could almost feel the pow-

morning hours in the last minutes

"I've been through a lot of

State Court
Takes Over
Road Probe
LANSING (IM-The State Su,
preme Court yesterday said it will
take over Gov. George Romney
and Atty. Gen. Frank Kelley's
state highway grand jury petition
and rule on the question of what
court may entertain such a re-
quest.
The court ordered the petition,
calling for a grand jury probe of
the State Highway Department,
transferred to its jurisdiction.
The petition had been filed with
the State Court of Appeals, but
the high court had been asked
to determine if the Appeals Court
had jurisdiction over such a pe-
tition and authority to name a
grand juror.
To File Briefs
The Supreme Court asked the
attorney general and the criminal
jurisprudence committee of the
Michigan State Bar to file briefs
on the jurisdiction question on
or before Dec. 15.
Romney and Kelley filed the
petition before the Appeals Court
last September, seeking an invest-
igation of alleged wrongdoing in
the highway department.
The two said the petition was
based on new evidence uncovered
by the attorney general since an
investigation conducted by Kel-
ley's office earlier this year.
Commission Request
The decision to petition for a
grand jury grew out of a State
Highway Commission request that
such a grand jury look into de
partment activities from 1957
through 1964.
However, there existed the
question of whether the Appeals
Court, in operation since 1964,
had jurisdiction to entertain
such a petition.
Romney subsequently asked the
Supreme Court to rule on whether
the Appeals Court could consider
the petition.

TEXAS RACE WIDE OPEN:
Gov. Connally Not To Seek Fourth Term

AUSTIN, Tex. (JP)--Texas Gov.
John Connally, who' twice nom-
inated Lyndon Johnson for presi-
dent, announced Friday he will not
seek re-election in 1968.
Connally's decision that he call-
ed "agonizing" clears the way for a
free-swinging governor's race and
deprives Johnson of the help of,
the popular governor's name In
the Democratic column of the
Texas ballot.
Jeopardizes Johnson
The President's control over the
state delegation to the 1968 Dem-
ocratic conventionin Chicago
might not be as strong without
Connally in charge, but a dele-
gate revolt by Texans is unlikely.
It also jeopardizes the President's
control of the state's Democratic
organization.
"I have reluctantly concluded
that after the drain of what will
have been eight years of vigorous
public service, I no longer can be
assured in my own mind that I
could bring to the office for an-
other two years the enthusi-
asm, the resilience, the patience
that my conscience would demand
and the state would deserve," Con-
nally, 50, said.
The eight years included service
as Secretary of the Navy under
Kennedy. He will have been gover-
nor six years at the end of his
current third term which ends in
January 1969.
Smith to Run
Lt. Gov. Preston Smith an-
nounced his .candidacy for gov-
ernor weeks ago.
Report circulated throughout
Texas that an announcement he
would run for governor was im-
minent from Sen. Ralph Yarbor-
ough (D-Tex) who three times
lost the Democratic nomination
for governor. But Yarborough said
in Dallas Friday that he will not
V, announce his intentions until Con-
gress ends.
Yarborough is a longtime bitter
political foe of Connally-a part of
the ancient Democratic split in
Texas between the liberals, now
headed by Yarborough, and the
conservative headed by Connally.

Houston lawyer Don Yarborough
and former state Sen. Franklin
Spears have been named in pub-
lished speculation as possible as-
pirants.
With the popular Connally out
of the way, Republicans would
have their best chance in years to
elect a governor. Former Atty. Gen.
Will Wilson, who switched party
labels, is a frequently named pos-
sibility, as is Rep. George Bush.
Connally, a longtime friend of
Johnson and a force in behind-
the-scenes Texas politics before his
election, nominated Johnson for

president at the 1956 Democratic
convention and worked hard for
his nomination in 1960.
Connally resigned in 1962 to run
for governor.
Opponents called him "Lyndon's
boy John" and asserted Johnson
had sent'him back to keep the
state in conservative Democrat
hands.
Connally placed Johnson's name
in nomination for president at the
1964 national Democratic conven-
tion.
Connally and Johnson split tem-
porarily that year when Johnson

reportedly applied pressure to keep
Kilgore from running against Yar-
borough, whose political feud with
Johnson was patched over after
the assassination.
While remaining on warm terms
with Johnson, Connally has op-
posed some of his domestic pro-
grams.
One close friend of the governor
said Connally's main reason for
stepping down is. that he could
not support Johnson's domestic
program as he would be expected
to during the presidential cam-
paign.

Security Council meeting Thurs-
day night was the latest sign of
the rough road ahead for the
Arabs. Friends of the Arabs, prin-
cipally the Soviet Union and In-
dia, objected to Israel's speaking

Israel seventh.
In the past, the customary
procedure had been to hear both;
sides in a dispute before other
speakers are given the floor.
After the council decision an Is-!

doubt he would have sharp words
for the council itself as well as the

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Justice De-
partment officials reportedly are
strongly opposed to a Selective
Service System plan to induct
antiwar protesters who violate the
draft law, rather than use the
courts for prosecution and appeal.
Sources also say the Selective
Service System, headed by Lt.
Gen. Lewis B. Hershey, doesn't
think the Justice Department is
prosecuting vigorously men
charged with violating the law.
Hershey's office has prepared
for legal study an order that
would change the definition of a
draft delinquent to cover anyone
who destroys his draft card or
disrupts the drafting process. De-
linquents are automatically put
at the top of induction lists.
Present regulations define a
delinquent as one who, for exam-
ple, fails to carry required draft
registration a n d classification
cards.

rugged area where the three-leg-
ged spacecraft touched down
Thursday, almost dead center on

Shoemaker, a member of the

sharpness and clarity of the tele-
vision camera aboard the 650-
pound robot.
The team is studying the pic-
tures to determine whether the
site, in the Sinus Medii-Central
Bay-is safe for manned landings.

NEWARK, N.J.-A leaflet pro-
testing the weapons conviction of'
Negro playwright LeRoi Jones
and violently denouncing "white
devils" was run off on office
equipment of Newark's antipov-
erty agency, says its executive
director.
Sylvester Odom said Thursday
he ordered a full investigation

after learning that the leaflets
had been printed in the United
Community Corporation's main
office.
The unsigned leaflets charged
that "America is holding LeRo.
Jones as a political prisoner" oe-
cause "he is a Free Black Man,
refuses to be judged by an all-
white jury and judge."
Jones and two other men were
convicted last week on charges of
illegal possessionof weapons dur-
ing Newark's July riots.
