Credit Curbs Being Eased, Tax Cut Seen WASHINGTON W) — The government is quietly dropping the policy of ever tighter credit restraints it ihas enforced most of this year. Instead, it has adopted an altitude of neutral, watchful waiting in the belief the dangers of inflation which brought on the tougher policy may have been mastered. If this assessment is correct, and if another inflationary blister does not appear in coming months, the possibility of a tax cut next year becomes a strong probability. The new attitude has become evident through several changes in government actions — chiefly in Federal Reserve Board policy — and in public and .private statements of government money managers. A top government policy maker said privately today he .thinks the government's efforts in recent months to head off what it considered excessive credit expansion in the stock market, home building, and other fields had "taken a lot of steam" out of the incipient inflationary pressures of last summer. He would not talk about the future course of policy, but he agreed with a description of the government position at present as "a withdrawal to neutrality." This does not mean necessarily that restrictions already, in force will be abandoned or even'signifi- cantly relaxed in the near'future. It merely means that new restrictions are unlikely,' and that there will be a continued effort to keep the restrictions now in force from creating any credit drought. .

She's Third In Line She is third in line for the throne, coming after the Queen's two small children, Prince Charles and Princess Anne. She pointed out in her statement that if it had only been a question of renouncing her rights of succession, she might, have contracted a civil marriage. But, she added, she was "mindful of the church's teaching that Christian marriage is indissoluble, and conscious of my duty to the commonwealth." Having reached her heartrending decision, Margaret will be swept along in the tide of ceremony and social activity that surrounds the royal family. She must continue to appear in public with no opportunity to hide herself from the world during her emotional stress.
