Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark., as one of five occupants of a car moving "at an unreasonable speed with its lights off" at 2 a.m. Mills, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, denied he was in the vehicle. The park police said Tuesday that when they curbed the 1974 Lincoln Continental, a woman ran from the auto and jumped into the Tidal Basin, a backwater of the Potomac River Near the Jefferson Memorial. The police report of the Monday morning incident, as relayed by Park Service spokesman George Berklacy, quoted policeman Larry Brent as saying that he and officer Thomas Johann "were northbound on 17th St. at Constitution Ave. when we observed a vehicle soundbound, north of Constitution Ave., at an unreasonable speed with its lights off. "We turned around and caught the vehicle westbound on Independence Ave., southwest, at Kutz Bridge. "We stopped the vehicle, a female exited from the passenger side and jumped into the Tidal Basin. I jumped in and brought her over the seawall, wheiv. aauitional U.S. rark police officers assisted in removing her from the water." The woman, who identified herself as Anabell Battistella, 38, of suburban Arlington, Va., was taken to St. Elizabeth's Hospital and later dismissed, Berklacy said. The police report said the man identifying himself as Mills was accompanied in the autCLby LiUane M. Kassar, 38, of Washington and Florida Sanchez, 36, and -Albert G. Gapacini, 39, both of Arlington. Gapacini, identified as the driver of the auto, was not charged. The auto bore Arkansas license plates. Berklacy said the water in the area is about three feet deep, and it ranges up to six feet further from shore. Mills' administrative assistant Oscar Goss, said the congressman had authorized him only to say that "he was not there at the time." Goss said he didn't know where Mills was at the time of the incident. The Washington Post reported that police officials said the car's occupants, other than Mills, had engaged in a struggle when the auto first stopped near the Tidal Basin. Later, when officer Brent and the Battistella woman were pulled out of the water, the auto's participants resumed their scuffle. Meanwhile, high ranking Park Service police officials had arrived on the scene and, in trying to quell the disorder, a police sergeant was pushed and fell over some bushes, injuring his back and leg, the Post said. The Post also said that state records in Little Rock, Ark., showed that the auto's license plate number DOT 003 was registered to Mills. Mills, a member of Congress since 1939 and one of its most influential members, is facing a re-election contest in November. Paul G. Huffman NEW YORK (AP) - Paul G.

Dr. William Fouty said Mrs. Ford, who underwent the operation 10 days ago, spent some time Tuesday walking up and down steps. The Navy surgeon said she "is able to spend more time on her mail." A White House spokesman reported that Mrs. Ford has received more than 28,000 letters and messages since her operation. Groups of congressional wives have visited the White House daily on a volunteer basis to help answer the mail.

LITTLE ROCK (Ap) - Ken Coon, the Republican candidate for governor, said Tuesday his Democratic opponent, David Pryor, had refused to debate him because "he is afraid he would lose votes." Coon told the Optimist Club of Greater Little Rock that a face-io-f ace confrontation would illustrate that Pryor had taken no stands on the issues. Pryor has said he declined to debate because his schedule is full. Coon said the four proposed constitutional amendments are issues and asked what Pryor's stand on them is. WASHINGTON (AP) - If Congress approves, Americans earning $15,000 and above are going to finance most of the new war against inflation. That was made clear by President Ford in his economic address Tuesday. He offered proposals to help business, housing, the unemployed and public utilities. But for the taxpayer, he proposed a 5 per cent surcharge on income above $15,000 for families and $7,500 for individuals. He also announced a 5 per cent surcharge in corporate income taxes, but that will be more than offset by increases in the investment tax credit for businesses. Ford acknowledged that the proposed tax hike, which would apply to about 28 per cent of all taxpayers, would be politically unpopular. But he said it was the "acid test of our joint determination to whip inflation." Here are some answers to questions that taxpayers may have on how the surcharge would affect them, if Congress approves it: Q. Will the surcharge result in a bigger withholding tax from my pay check? A. No, the tax would be paid when you file your 1975 income tax returns, which means you would not actually pay it until 1976. Q: Who will pay the surtax? A: Generally speaking, families with gross incomes of $15,000 and over will be subject to the tax. For individuals, the cutoff is $7,500. Those with incomes below these levels would normally be excluded. Q. I'm making more than $15,000. Does that mean my total tax bill will be increased by 5 per cent because of the surcharge? A. No, basically the surcharge will be applied to the tax on your income above $15,000, although i£s slightly more complicated than that. If you are the head of a family of four and earn $15,000, the government already allows you $2,000 in standard deductions and $3,000 in personal exemptions for your family. That leaves you with $10,000 taxable income. The surcharge would apply as a 5 per cent increase to any taxable income in excess of $10,000 in your case. In the case of an individual taxpayer who takes a $1,300 standard deduction and a single exemption of $750, his taxable income is $5,450, and the surcharge would apply to anything over that. Q. Does this go into effect immediately? A. No, the President wants the surcharge to apply to 1975 income only. It would be a one- year program. And Congress would have to approve it in any event. Handicapped needs pushed LITTLE ROCK (AP) - H. G. Rountree of Bentonville, chairman of the Governor's Committee on Employment of the Handicapped, said Tuesday that Gov. Dale Bumpers had failed to provide financial and moral support to the committee, ty. Rountree said he would seek a meeting with Bumpers to discuss this complaint. Rountree said it had "been only through accident that we have been able to get the support of the various companies in hiring the handicapped. We need more than talk. What we need is strong support from the governor." Economists share Nobel STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) — Gunnar Myrdal of Sweden, author of a famed study on the American Negro, and Friedrich von Hayek of Austria today were awarded the 1974 Nobel Prize for Economics. The 75-year-old Myrdal wrote "An American Dilemma — the Negro Problem and Modern Democracy" published in 1944, which stirred controversy. Liberals praised the book as the first probing analysis of the American racial problem. Others accused him of fomenting racial unrest. Myrdal also wrote "Asian Drama — An Inquiry into the Poverty of Nations," published in 1968, in which he questioned the relevance of Western-style democracy to the problems of Asia. He has recently been doing research in the United States. The Vienna-born Hayek, also 75, was professor of social science at the University of Chicago from 1950 to 1962. His books include "Prices and Production" in 1931, "The Pure Theory of Capital" in 1941, "The Road of Serfdom" in 1944 and "The Constitution of Liberty" in 1960.
