Mayor Lindsays Three Months By JOHN MORGANTHALER NEW YORK (AP) - John V. Lindsay has been mayor for three months, and they've given him a hard time. From the transit strike that began on his inaugural day to his current battle for a $520-mu- lion tax boost, the 44-year-old Republican mayor has been in constant controversy. Lindsay's November election victory in this Democratic stronghold pushed him into the national spotlight — a hand- lome, liberal and charming nan. By St. Patrick's Day, when Scot Lindsay walked in the Fifth Avenue parade, he was alternately booed and cheered. Irishman Robert F. Kennedy, a abort distance from the mayor, was wildly cheered. Lindsay nas tangled with the City Council, the legislature, the police brass- and the press. He has been alternately short-tempered and humorous with opponents.

He has jousted with the late Iransit Union leader Michael uill, crusty highway builder obert Moses, and President Keith Funston of the Stock Ex- hange. He has warily sparred with Republican Gov. Nelson A. .Rockefeller, who may view him s a political rival, but whose elp Rockefeller will need in lis year's state election. Lindsay insists he's not inter- sted in any job but mayor. His performance in the first 90 days has delighted some, and aiised others to picture him as bungling Boy Scout or an ar- ogant dictator. He has proposed consolidation f all transit agencies under a ingle authority, over which the mayor would exert considerable control. Moses, 75, who would ose his job as chairman of the Bridge and Tunnel Authority, calls it a "power grab." "I know my program is fair because everyone is equally mad at it. I will not accept de- eat," Lindsay said of his tax plan. But the former congressman was arranging compromises in an effort to get it through an election-year legislature and a Democratic 0ty Council. The Democrats, out of City Hall control for the first time in 10 years, have been handling Lindsay with kid gloves. City Council President Frank O'Connor, a possible candidate for governor, has assumed the role of reasonable critic. Lindsay announced his tax jlan in one of several television 'fireside chats," a format which exploits his good looks and charm. The tax program includes a city income tax and a 50 perl cent increase in the stock trans-' fer tax. Funston threatened to move! the exchange out of the city, and announced it was canceling plans for a new ISO-million downtown headquarters. "Lots of people have lost money on the stock market," commented Lindsay, "but I may be the first to have lost the whole market." Suburban legislators lined up upstate political support and told Lindsay the income tax on commuters was out. They demanded that he raise the 15-cent transit fare, or they would chop his tax program by the amount of any transit subsidy. Lindsay, in an off-the-cuff speech, threatened to "take to the streets" to campaign against legislators who vote against his tax program. The legislators howled, many with delight. The mayor's most bitter fight has concerned the Police Department and his plan to create a civilian-dominated board to review charges of police misconduct. Negro and Puerto Rican leaders favor the civilian review plan, although they don't think it goes far enough. Police Commissioner Vincent Broderick accused Lindsay of political interference in department affairs, and rejected the civilian board. Lindsay replaced him with Howard Leary, the police commissioner of Philadelphia. Lindsay insisted that the mayor is responsible for the department's activities. Leary, denying that Lindsay was calling the shots, immediately shook up the high command, promoting a Jew and a Negro to top jobs in what had been an Irish hierarchy. At a department breakfast there were rebellious mutterings when it was announced that Leary would not attend because* of a virut. Broderick showed up, and was cheered. Lindsay's "night owl" plan also hag been a source of considerable discussion. Under the plan, commissioners and other high-ranking members of the administration man City Hall, on a rotating basis, from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Administration Democrats — except those who got their jobs through appointment by Lindsay — have declined to participate. Lindsay has had a series of disagreements with the press. Some of the animosity was worked off in an administration- press football game in Central Park, in which both sides took some good-natured but nasty spills. At a political writers' dinner, which traditionally roasts a public official and then gives him time for rebuttal, Lindsay surprised everybody with a song and dance act instead of a rebuttal speech. "Maybe I can save this show yet," he quipped, as he soft- shoed in straw hat and cane with musical comedy star Florence Henderson. "Florence," he said, "Are you sure LBJ started this way?"

Wight will be the speaker Sunday at 3 p.m. at Kingdom Hall, 801 Moultrie, when he delivers a message which will be heard in over 5,000 Jehovah's Witnesses congregations over the United States.
