Martin Says
Increase Of
Taxes Vital
CHICAGO (AP)-- William Mc-
Chesney Martin, chairman of the
Federal Reserve Board, urged yes-
terday a quick tax increase to
combat inflation.
He told the annual meeting of
the American Petroleum Institute
that a cut in federal spending
also is needed.

said to shape up like this:
On the military front, the
North Vietnamese were not able
to score a single victory in the
South this year. They suffered
heavy losses in battle, and the
air raids caused them to put 500,-
000 more men to work on repairs
to keep their war machine going.
Viet Cong Recruitment Tumbles
The Viet Cong guerrillas in the
South also suffered heavy losses
and their recruitment has tum-
bled to 3,500-4,000 a month com-
pared to twice that many in 1966
Infiltration from the N -)r t h
amounts to around 6,500-7.000
men monthly.
On the political front, South
Vietnam took important strides in
holding five elections within the
last 14 months, establishing a
constitutional government in Sai-
gon and beginning to expand mil-
itary recruitment and give tax
and land reform functions to lo-
cal governments.

boost, thehigher it may be.
He recalled that President
Johnson has asked in January for
a 6 per cent surcharge on federal
income taxes. His request was
boosted in August to 10 per cent.
"I see nothing in that progres-
sion," he said, "that suggests that
it pays us to wait."
Congress has delayed action on
the tax increase proposals.
"We. need restraint on both
sides of the federal ledger," Mar-
tin said, "and we need it as quick-
ly as it is possible to get it."
Talks With Newsmen
Those lines of advice were in
his prepared remarks. He didn't
read them but developed the
same theme in his speech and in
a brief huddle with newsmen.
Martin told the oilmen he is
not predicting controls, but later
said the nation "may face a wider
adjustment than any of us want
to see."
He said deficit financing has a
role to play under certain circum-
stances, but added: "We are on
the road to getting into perpetual

The United States and Britain
appealed to the UN Security
Council yesterday for pr.ompt,
concerted action for a Middle
East settlement. The United
States, while recognizing the need
for Israeli withdrawal, backed
Israeli's demand for "secure and
recognized" boundaries with Arab
Britain's Lord Caradon, urging
"a final and supreme and suc-
cessful effort to set aside all dif-
ferences," declared that "the
time to decide has come.
"This week we must conclude:j
our debate," he added. "This week
we hope to see an end of talk
here and the beginning of action
on the ground.
'Important Decision'
"I trust that before this week
is over we shall have taken per-
haps the most important decision
which the United Nations has
ever taken."
U.S. Ambassador Arthur J. Gold-
berg, urging support for a U.S.
draft resolution before the coun-
cil, contended that a Middle East
settlement imposed from outside
could not endure.
Parties Must Seek Peace
"Only the parties themselves
can make peace," he said.
Goldberg said Israel m u s t
withdraw "and the Arab states
must renounce the state of bel.-
ligerencenwhich they have claimed
for many years.
"Secure and recognized boun-
daries must be mutually worked
out and recognized by the parties

themselves as part of the peace-
making process," he added.
Soviet First Deputy Foreign
Minister Vasily V. Kuznetsov, sup-
porting the Arab position, said
that a settlement in the Middle
East, "if one seriously wishes to
strengthen peace," must include
Israeli withdrawal to positions
held prior to the war.
The U.S. formulation of Israeli
withdrawal, he said, left open the

possibility that Israel alone would
determine the positions to which
she withdrew. The Soviet official
challenged the United States to
clarify this question.
Goldberg and Kuznetsov con-
ferred privately on the Middle
East for about 20 minutes prior
to the meeting, but their speeches
did not indicate they had drawn
any closer toward agreement on
a resolution.

NEW YORK-Sen. Robert F.
Kennedy said last night he may
"have something further to say"
about his announced support of
President Johnson for re-election
if Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy (D-
Minn.) declares himself a candi-
date for president.
The New York Democrat made
his remark in an interview with
CBS News correspondent Roger
Mudd on the CBS Evening News.
Kennedy was asked what he
thought of a candidacy by Mc-
"I think he'll receive some sup-
port around the country," Ken-
nedy replied. "I think from the
people I've talked to, in Califor-
nia, New England, the Midwest,
he'll have some support."
Kennedy said if he were Presi-
dent Johnson he would consider
McCarthy's possible candidacy as
"zery serious."
