Bundy Agrees To Meeting

Senate Ht
TwoHJos House
Fo Shrier I



McGeorge Bundy has agreed
th deta ils 'of apossil polic
debate on Viet Nam, Prof. Arn-
old Kaufman of the philosophy
department said yesterday.
Kaufman, one of the Univer-
sity's faculty members who or-
iginated the teach-in, stated
ta t und "areed to talk
a debate" and was "quite
agreeable" about the subject
providing "the details can be
worked out."
Early next week, Bundy, who
is the President's special assist-
ant for national affairs, will
meet with some of the most
active members of the teach-in
movement to decide on the
structure of the impending
me ting. He was specifically
invited to take part in a live
television debate, and does not
seem to have any objections to
the idea according to Kaufman.
Called Away
Two weeks ago, Bundy was
supposed to confront oppo-
nentis at a national teach-in
which rook place in Washing-
ton. However, he was called
away at the last minute to go
to the Dominican Republic.
Because this mission was se-
cret and was not made public
for 24 hours, many felt he was
trying to avoid defending U.S.
policy in Viet Nam. However,
he said he regretted this un-

avoidable absence and was in-
vited to partake in a future

is expected to be published in
the early fall.
Recent Meeting
(Recently the committee held
a meeting at which the Wash-
ington teach-in was evaluated.
Prof. Julian Gendell of the
chemistry department empha-
sized the importance of immed-
iate action. "Action must occur
now because the more our
counitry becomes involved, the
more difficult it will become to
criticize," he said.
(At the meeting Prof. Eric
R. Wolfe of the anthropology
departngent referred to what he
called the "total participation"
of members as being one of the
most positive aspects of the
group. Since the committee
lacks a central directorate, he
said, there are no people at the
top who simply give orders and
do not act.
(As a result, the teach-in
held at the University exempli-
fied the drive and spontaneity
of those taking part in it, Wolfe

Gemii 4Cleared for Lift.Off

CAPE KENNEDY (A') - Gemini
4 was cleared for lift-off yester-
day for its marathon flight that
will take Major Edward H. White
on a journey as a human satellite
across the American continent.
White, protected by a pressuriz-
ed space suit, will orbit ahead
of his spacecraft, unaware of
movement although traveling at
17,500 miles an hour.
Officials of the Gemini Space
Program lit the green lights at
an early afternoon conference.
"Everything," Mission Director
Christopher Columbus Kraft, Jr.
said, "looks to be about as good
as you could hope for at this
point in the countdown."

If the Senate follows suit, as
is expected, this would be the sec-
ond major tax cut in as many
years. Income taxes were reduced
last year by an amount now esti-
mated at $14 billion.
The reductions provided by the
House-passed bill would not be
complete until Jan. 1, 1969, but
a major portion would go into ef-
fect in just four weeks-July 1.
Automobile Taxes
Moreover, the initial three per-
centage point cut in the auto-
mobile excise-an average of about
$75 for a passenger car-and the
repeal of the 10 per cent tax on
air conditioners would be retro-

On Dec. 31, the tax qn cabarets
and theatre, sporting events and
other admissions would go off, to
be followed on Jan. 1 by another
batch of excises, including those
on club dues, passenger automo-
bile parts and sales of stocks and
real estate. Also on Jan. 1, the 10
per cent telephone tax would be
cut to 3 per cent, the first step in
a gradual elimination to be com-
plete Jan. 1, 1969, and the auto-
mobile tax would be cut one more

but the House went beyond hbis
recommendation by voting to wipe

recommended a cut from 10 per

so spaced that the revenue effect
for the fiscal year beginning July
1 will be the same as Johnson es-
timated in his recommiendations-
$1.75 billion.

most as one-sided as the vote,
Chairman Wilbur D. Mills (D-

Committee, and Rep. John W.
Byrnes of Wisconsin, the senior
Republican member, both assailed
the present excise taxes as dis-

Gov. George Romney indicated
yesterday that he may refuse to
sign 1965-'66 budget bills unless
the Democratic L eg i sla tu r e
promptly provides for a $58 mil-
lion tax increase.
While Romney did not specify
how many or which bills he may
veto, some Lansing officials spec-
ulated that the governor may
make the Democratic-sponsored
school aid bill his major target.
The school bill, a measure deal-
ing with state assistance to ele-
mentary and secondary schools,
was approved by the House last
week and is currently awaiting ac-
tion in the Senate. It calls for
substantially more state aid than
Romney recommended.

said there was no reason why the
conversations shouldn't be broad-
cast simultaneously to the Ameri-
can people.
There will be no telev ision pic-
tures because the spacecraft did
not have room for the television
equipment, Kraft explained.
After the second rendezvous at-
tempt, which will come in the fifth
orbit, McDivitt will maneuver the
spacecraft into a higher orbit de-
signed to last for the duration of
;he mission. At intervals, space
agency officials will evaluate the
condition of the spacecraft and
the astrgnauts to determine
whether the mission should con-

limit on a loan from $2,000 to
$2,500. .
The bill was introduced by Rep.
IOren H arris, D-Ark., chairman of
the subcommittee.
It is expected that the bill,
which is slated for subcommittee
action on June 8, will be out of
committee quickly because it is
primarily an extension of an al-
ready existing law.
Resembles Defeated Bill
James Menger, House non-
political staff member since 1952
and legislative assistant on the
Public Health and Welfare sub-
committee, said that the present
bill is very much like a bill de-
feated on the floor of the House
during the 88th Congress.

Among other things, the bill
would authorize funds to attempt

return him in or before 1970.
Passage, by a 79-4 vote, came
after the Senate tabled, 59 to 26,
an amendment by Sen. Russell B.
Long (D-La) designed to retain
government ownership of most
patents resulting from govern-
ment-financed research.
The space authorization now
goes back to the House for con-
sideration of numerous Senate
amendments which raised its total
about $13 million. The House had
cut about $76 million below the
President's original request for
$5.26 billion.
