Aldene Plan Cuts Upheld The Courier-News Bureau TRENTON A New Jersey Superior Appellate Court today upheld the power of the state Transportation Department to regulate Jersey Central Rail road passenger service. At issue was the department's order March 14 discontinuing certain CNJ mainline service in connection with the launching of the Aldene plan on April 30. The : Inter-Municipal Group for Better Rail Service and Middlesex and Garwood boroughs appealed from the department's order. They contended the service curtailment violated Aldene plan contract terms. The Aldene plan provides a switchover route for CNJ so its mainline trains can travel directly to and from Newark. - The appellants complained that the state's order was wrong because it allowed a reduction of service below the minimum which CNJ agreed to maintain during the first year of Aldene plan operation. The appellate panel, however, held that "there is substantial evidence" to support the Transportation Department's decision. Greek , Turkish Agreement On Cyprus Dispute Reported ATHENS (AP) Informed Vance flew to Nicosia from diplomatic sources said tonight Athens after a long day and Greece and Turkey have come night of consultations with the to agreement on the Cvotus Grek irovprnmpnt Tfnrpitrn IBIUlLILlETniM British Cabinet Shifted LONDON (AP) Chancellor of the Exchequer James Callaghan resigned today in the wake of Britain's devaluation of the pound. He switched places with Home Secretary Roy Jenkins, who succeeds him at the treasury. problem and simultaneous an nouncements to this effect will be made later from both Athens and Ankara. At the same time,' orders went out to Greece's; armed forces calling off their combat alert. They were placed on a simple state of readiness. 4 The report of the agreement came as U. S. special envoy Cyrus Vance conferred in Nicosia, . the Cyprus capital, with Greek Cypriot leaders. Turkish jets again flew over the eastern Mediterranean island, keeping up pressure on Athens and the Greek Cyp riots. U. S.-built F86 jets swooped down over Nivosia's airport and the Turkish sector of the capi tal. Turks cheered them; Greeks watched them silently. Witness Held In Gleason Case The fourth person charged as a material witness in the slaying of Plainfield Patrolman John V. Gleason Jr. of July 16 during the city riot was taken into custody yesterday by city detectives. Robert H. Whitaker, 18, of 525 Mercer St., Somerville, was picked up at Somerset County Jail where he had been held on a charge of receiving stolen property, detectives said. Whitaker was released under his own recognizance until wanted by the Union County Grand Jury. Minister Panayiotis Pipinelis described the situation as "deli cate and dangerous" but said he thought war with Turkey was "less a possibility now." Vance and President Maka-rios, the leader of the Greek Cypriot community, met for an hour at the presidential palace while Turkish Air Force jets screamed overhead. , It was their second day over Nicosia and their 12th successive day over Cyprus The Greek government has been reported willing to withdraw the 8,000-12,000 Greek sol diers who were infiltrated into Cyprus in violation of the 1960 Zurich agreements which gave the island its independence from, Britain. These provide for garrisons of 950 Greek troops and 650 Turkish troops in Cy prus. Makarios is opposed to withdrawal of Greek troops unless all Turkish troops also withdraw and his government is given firm international guarantees against foreign intervention. But the Turkish government refuses to abandon ' the Turkish Cypriot On the Inside minority, contending that the Turkish garrison is the only guarantee of protection for it against the Greek Cypriot majority. It was generally believed in Cyprus that Makarios would have to go along with anything Greece agreed to. Jet Fighters Bomb, Strafe Viet Cong SAIGON (AP) Waves of Viet Cong troops assaulted a government district head quarters near the Cambodian border for 5 hours today and overran some of the 200 defenders before jet fighters strafed and bombed the Reds into retreat. . A South Vietnamese spokes man said 65 enemy bodies were found inside and nearby the perimeter of the district head quarters compound at Bo Due, 80 miles north of Saigon. He said 15 government soldiers were killed and 19 wounded. Outpost Shelled Simultaneous with the ground attack only three miles from the Cambodian border, the Viet Cong shelled a government out post four miles to the south and a U.S. Special Forces camp 10 miles to the south. Government casualties were reported light in those attacks, and there was no report of U.S. casualties. The attack at Bo Due con tinued a pattern of scattered Communist shelling and hit and-run ground attacks that has prevailed since the end of the Dak To battle last week. Elsewhere only small scattered skirmishes were logged in the ground war. Over North Vietnam, U.S. Navy bombers came closer yes terday to the center of Hai phong than they have in some days. Attacking pilots reported leaving secondary explosions and broken tracks in the rail road yards 1.7 miles northwest of the port city's center. They said they did heavy damage to the northern span of a rail and highway bridge a mile west of downtown Haiphong. Both the yards and the bridge had been attacked before. A South Vietnamese spokesman said the Bo Due head quarters was attacked by troops of the 272nd Viet Cong Regiment, the same regiment that made a week-long series of attacks early in November on the Loc Ninh district head quarters 10 miles southwest of Bo Due. Strategic Move The attack on Bo Due could be the start of an action similar to the battle at Loc Ninh, where one of the apparent Communist aims was to draw U.S. and South Vietnamese forces away from pacification efforts in more populous regions. Four U.S. battalions were diverted to the defense of Loc Ninh. Reinforcements from the U.S. 1st Infantry Division and from South Vietnamese infantry units were ordered into the Bo Due area today. t Births Boyle Bridge Business Classif'd Comics Editorials 32 14 29 42 43-47 41 26 Entert'nm't 37 Events . 37 Landers 34 Obituaries 19 Social 32-33 Sports 38-40 Stocks 42 2 Contestants Win Special Puzzle Prize Two regular home subscribers of The Courier-News, who participated in this paper's special Prize Puzzle contest that appeared in the i Thanksgiving Day edition, both find themselves ?112.50 richer today. William D. Shelhimer of 95 Somerset St., and Robert J Cooke of 856 Mohill Place, Pis-cataway, came out in a dead heat in the race for the $225 jackpot and since each is a regular subscriber and adhered to the rules accompanying the puzzle, will share the award equally. Both missed one of the more difficult words and, coincidental-ly, had they had the opportunity to put their answers together would have solved the puzzle completely but then there would have been but one winner. Shelhimer used "saying" for eight across, which should have been "saving" while Cooke got past that one correctly but stumbled on 14 across by using "dear" rather than "near." Cooke, who is a departmental supervisor at Natvar Corp., Woodbridge, and a native of TV 36 Women 34-35 Somerville, said he along with his wife, Helen Jiave been participating regularly in this paper's weekly Cashwords contest and look forward to the day when one of them can win that prize, now worth more than $4,300. "But," he said, "until that happens I'm quite pleased with this prize." He added he would give the windfall to his wife for a Christmas present. Shelhimer, who is employed as a helper at Harris Structural Steel, Piscataway, said of' his win: "It's wonderful." He's been working the Cashwords puzzles regularly since March. As for the special Thanksgiving puz zle, he said, "I didn't expect to win this time, because it was harder." He hasn't decided yet what to do with the money. An analysis of the clues in the special contest and the solution appears today on Page 13. Governor Hughes Hughes Gets First Eye Operation PHILADELPHIA (AP) A cataract was removed today from the left eye of Governor Hughes of New Jersey. Doctors said the surgery "went well" and "the Governor is in fine condition." ' Hughes went into the Univer sity of Pennsylvania operating room at 5:35 a.m. The surgery took 35 minutes and he was taken back to his room at 6:40 a.m. He will remain at the hospital for 14 to 20 days and have a similar condition - corrected on his right eye. No date has been set for that operation. The Gov ernor said yesterday his doc tors told him the operations were not serious and no com plications were anticipated. . Hughes, escorted, by a N. J. state trooper, arrived at the hospital last night. Accompanied by Wife Accompanied by his wife, Betty, he spoke briefly ,to reporters before going to his room and a night's rest. He did not bring any luggage. Hughes is expected to be out of the hospital by Christmas, but will have a four-to-six week recuperation period during which he will be unable to do much reading.

Fowler gave Congress an administration proposal today for a $7.4 billion tax increase and a $4 billion spending cut, and said it would be unthinkable not to enact it promptly. Fowler said the combination would cut the expected deficit from more than $25 billion to less than $14 billion and would amount to a giant step in strengthening the U.S. dollar against buffetings in the international market. Fowler appeared before the- - - House Ways and Means Committee which shelved President Johnson's tax proposal almost two months ago, saying it could be considered when Congress and the executive agreed on spending cuts. The odds against getting a tax bill through . even one house of. Congress this year went almost out of sight yesterday when Chairman Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark., of the House Ways and Means Committee said it would be impossible in that branch where all money measures start. But the administration kept faying. The proposal Fowler made today included Johnson's original tax bill with an addition em bracing and appropriation cut formula Fowler said would amount to about a $4 billion spending cut this year, divided roughly equally between civilian and non-Vietnam defense budgets. Want Deeper Cuts Leading members of the com mittee have continued to oppose a tax measure unless even deeper cuts are made. 'The fax 'components of the administration plan is based on a 10 per cent surcharge on the in come tax paid by individuals and corporations, accelerating the collection of some corporate taxes and deferring scheduled declines in excise taxes. "Never have we been con fronted by a fiscal problem which, in my judgment, was more decisive for our country and the free world," Fowler solemnly told the committee Tax Bill Retroactive The tax portion of the bill he presented is Johnson's 10 per cent surcharge and related tax changes intact, including pro visions that would make the ad ditional income tax retroactive to last Oct. 1 for individuals and last July-1 for corporations. The new spending control portion of the legislation would cut back appropriation authority for the fiscal year ending next June 30 by the following formula: Each civilian department or agency would have its budget reduced by at least two per cent cut in the January budget for payrolls plus a 10 per cent reduction in other expenditure programs. Programs considered uncontrollable presumably including such things as interest on debt and statutory payments would be exempt. Car Prices Lead Living Cost Rise NEW YORK (AP) The Labor 'cDen$ment's consumer price iri&ex for the metropolitan area went up again last month, with the over-the-month rise of .4 per cent the largest increase since February. At the end of October, the consumer price index stood at an all-time high of 120.2 per cent, meaning the consumer had to spend $12.02 for goods that cost only $10 in the base period of . 1957-59. Nationwide, living , costs rose three-tenths of one per cent in October, mainly because of increase in prices for new automobiles, clothing and services, the government re ported. Food J prices -rtlropped-two-tenths of one per cent,-but this was less than seasonal, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said. , In its annual evaluation of automobile prices, the bureau said new car prices went up with introduction of the 1968 model,' with retail prices aver aging 2.7 per cent higher than a year ago. Manufacturers' prices average just 2 per cent above a year ago, alter allowance for net quality improvements in 1968 models. Herbert Bienstnek. regional director of the department's Bureau of Labor Statistics, said tndav the nrires naiH hv rnn- sumers ior goous ana services rose 2.2 per cent during the first 10 months of 1967. In the same period of 1966, the prices increased 3.8 per cent. The yearly increase in prices between Octo ber, 1966, and, October, 1967, was 2 3 ner rent. The October increases were due primarily to boosts in the prices of housing, clothing, new cars, reading and recreation. Bienstock said the increase meant that the dollar in October in the New York-Northeastern New Jersey metropolitan area was worth 83.2 cents in ttemm was worth 83.2 cents in terms of 1957-59 dollars and only 69.1 cents in terms of 1947-49 dollars. v rsryP -r" t f GOING WEST Former President Dwight D.
