It forecasts a $3.4 billion surplus, providing Congress extends the 10 per cent surtax, now scheduled to expire June 30, for another year. Without the surtax, the budget would show an $8.7 billion deficit. Defense expenditures arc budgeted for a $500 million increase over 1969, but the Vietnam share of the total is expected to drop by $3.4 billion, the first decline since the United c 'ites become involved in the war.

Jim Garrison has asked for an indefinite delay of the trial of Clay. L. Shaw, 55, charged with conspiring with Lee Harvey Oswald and others to murder President John F. Kennedy. The trial was scheduled to start Tuesday. Garrison claims that federal secrecy has crippled his case. Asst. Dist. Atty. James L. Al- c-ock filed a motion for postponement Friday with Criminal District Court Judge Edward A. -Haggerfy Jr. A hearing was set for Monday. The motion marked an abrupt reversal by the prosecution. A few weeks ago, Garrison said only his death could stop the trial. Alcock's statement in announcing the new motion carried a strong hint that the Shaw case might never reach the courti'oom. Alcock's action- -opposed by the defense—came shortly after a Washington hearing in which Court of General Sessions Judge Charles Halleck rejected Garrison's subpoena of autopsy photographs and X-rays of Kennedy. Halleck told New Orleans Asst. Dist. Atty. N. .V Bertel Jr. that he would have to show that the autopsy records are necessary to the case and that "this is something more lhan a fishing expedtiion." Saying he wanted to be sure Garrison was not simply trying j to "obtain what surely must be : sensational photographs," Hal! leek gave Bertel two weeks to 1 produce evidence. Garrison contends thai Kennedy, 1 slain in Dallas in 1963, was the victim of a conspiracy. The Warren Commission report said it found no evidence of a conspiracy. It said Oswald, acting alone and for reasons unknown, killed the President with rifle shots fired from a window as ; the presidential car passed by. ' The conspiracy case contends ; that: Kennedy was fired upon j from at least two directions and j i that the autopsy-material would prove it. 1 I The autopsy photographs and j X-rays were placed in the Naj tional Archives by the Kennedy family, with the stipulation that they not be made public. In seeking delay of the trial of Shaw, a retired businessman, Alcock asked thai, il be postponed until Garrison's office re- ceievs "all of the evidence called for in our subpoenas, of the evidence used in the autopsy report and all other evidence se- cerlly held by the federal government."
