"Certainly I.. .wish I could say with positiveness that the 10 per cent surcharge will not have to be continued, that it would stop on next June 30. "1 can't say that because I do not know what the alternatives to dropping it would be. but I do not want you to think we've cured the problem we had in the spring of 1S by a one-year adoption of a 10 pet-cent surcharge. We haven't." "What we've done is to merely put a bandaid on a very evident hand cancer. We've kept anyone from seeing that we have lhat skin cancer on our hand, but we haven't done a thing in the world about eliminating Uncancel'." Mills called for a "well reasoned" listing of priorities but said he had "no brief for any particular form." In the last session of Congress he had called for creation of a special commission of independent citizens with knowledge of financial matters to establish such priorities. No action was taken on the proposal. Mills said government spending in the current fiscal year will total $185 billion and that uncontrollable items, such as Social Security and Medicare and the mandatory federal employe pay increase will automatically boost this figure by $7 billion to $10 billion in fiscal 1970. "The implication of these figures is clear," he said. "We will need hard nosed expenditure control to hold the budget for the coming year well under $'2(KI billion." Mills said that "with the ending or substantial lessening of the hostilities" in Vietnam, demands for increased spending in such areas as the ghettos, poverty, education and air and water pollution are certain to be made. is playing havoc with your Christmas shopping this year! 3 r I.ITTLK ROCK.

Mills, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, said there was little chance that Congress will let the surcharge expire June .'ill, 19. The statement was somewhat of a challenge to President-elect Richard M. Nixon, who nine days before the Nov. r election said. "1 will allow the 10 per cent surcharge to expire as scheduled on June .'10 or at least will reduce il significantly." Mill's told the annual meeting ot the Arkansas I'etroleum Council that even with a cessation or tapering off of hostilities in Vietnam, the federal government would be "assaulted lrom all fronts" for massive amounts ot aid.

Making the presentation was Julius T. Moon, vice-president and cashier of the oldest bank in Palm Beach County. Accepting the check was Benny A. Richmond, technical adviser who has been in charge of remodeling the playing surface at the golf course. Contributions of equipment, materials, manpower and supervision estimated to be valued in excess of $100,000 made possible the improvements to the nine-hole layout, Richmond said. Friday, an area resident donated the use of a helicopter for use in spraying the fairways with a herbicide that should aid the growth of the new grass that has been planted, Richmond said. The golf course is the only one located in Western Palm Beach County. . It draws its membership from Pahokee, Belle (ilade,. South Bay and other area communities. Bill Schrieber, golf pro, said the course is closed on Tuesdays, except for private lessons. The cocktail lounge and dining room are also closed on thai day.

Mrs. Castro, wife of Raul Castro, brother and dep uty of Prime Minister Fidel Castro, said Cuban women are "ready to fight' until victory against Yankee imperialism." and it was the first in four years. The balance is a comparison of the dollar value of alt transactions by individual American and their government with individuals and governments of other nations. If Americans buy too many imported sweaters or autos or take too many trips to other nations, or if industry sends too much capital abroad to build overseas branch plants, or if the government goes in heavily for overseas spending or lending all these harm the balance of payments position unless money enters the United States from foreign sources in equal measure. When the reckoning comes, nations holding lOUs from the United Stales can demand gold. The United States has little to spare. Last year the United States went into the red $-16 billion in its dealings" with the rest of the world, including a staggering fourth quarter deficit of $1.7 billion. President Johnson reacted by announcing on New Year's Day a program designed to stop the tailspin and cut the deficit by at least $1 billion from the 1!H7 level. This goal apparently will be met since the deficit for all of 18 is $SU5 million and the year may well end with a total deficit of $1 billion or less. Secretary of the Treasury Henry H. Fowler attributed the trend that culminated in the small third quarter surplus to "the impetus provided by President Jotnson's action program" bul cautioned that ome of the plus items in recent months were temporary In ElSlLlllllQQQaLlli Payments Surplus Won't Avert Deficit mm mmmm mmm m u Am WASHINGTON (AIT) Government officials interpret a small quarterly surplus in Hie balance ol payments an iiotinced Friday alter a long su ing of deficits as proof the administration has picked ef-leclive medicines to relieve the chronic l.'.S. gold drain. But they are equally quick to point out that the $.'!! million surplus lor the third quarter won't save the United Slates lrom a delicti tor 1WH as a whole. Still, reporting a balance of payments surplus of any size, and even il just for three mouths, is a heady experience in Washington.

Already stores are selling Christmas merchandise and this volume will increase day by day until Christmas Eve or until the shelves are bare. That is the point of appeals to shop early. Stocks are now at their peak but obviously they will not remain so. The late shopper may find what he seeks if he is lucky, but the early shopper is almost sure to do so. nmmmmwm !Hfflpnn!
