In an unexpected move, King Constantine asked him to remain in office pending a solution of Greece's political crisis. Most observers had thought the king would accept the resignation immediately and name a new premier. His request to Athanasiadis Novas to remain in office temporarily indicated the king was undecided on his next step. Befbre his overthrow in Parliament early today, Athanasia- dis Novas suggested that Constantine call the leaders of all political parties together to discuss the crisis.

He said the present 125,000-man goal for U.S. military strength in Viet Nam is a reasonable figure, but he does not know whether this will be enough in the future.

The House of Commons also took the historic step of voting to abolish capital punishment for murder. The House of Lords deputy premier under George Papandreou, 77, was considered a strong possibility to be asked to form a government. The king fired Papandreou three weeks ago in a dispute over who should control the armed forces. Also talked about as possible nonpolitical choices were George Mavros, a member of Parliament from Papandreou's center Union party and the head of the Bank of Greece, and Xe- nophontas Zolotas, deputy governor of the National Bank. There were fears that if a lasting solution is not found, Greece would revert to the political instability of 1950-52. There were nine changes of government during the two years. The Athanasiadis Novas government was voted down 167-131 in a stormy eight-hour session of Parliament that lasted long after midnight. Deputies traded punchs, catcalls and threats and the proceedings were suspended briefly. Speaker Baklatzis banged his gavel, rang his bell and shouted himself hoarse until the brawl eased.

The decision in the milestone Permian Basin area case is ex- jected to be the pattern for rul- ngs in other pending area rate cases and ultimately for orders to apply to all major producing areas. A commission spokesman said it was estimated the decision would require refunds of something like $30 million to $35 million by producers in the Permian Basin area—three counties in New Mexico and 55 counties in Texas 1 Railroad Commission districts Nos. 7C and 8. The commission said virtually all Permian Basin interstate production goes to three pipeline purchasers, who would share the refunds. These pipelines then would be required, under current commission procedures, to pass on the refunds to their customers. The pipelines, and the percentage of the insterstate Permian production they purchase, are El Paso Natural Gas Co., El Paso, Tex., 73 per cent; Northem Natural Gas Co., Omaha, Neb., 18 per cent; and Trans- western Pipeline Co., Houston, 9 per cent. The commission said about 85 per c°nt of interstate sales of gas from the Permian Basin goes to California, and that there are sales also in these other states: Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Wisconsin. The decision requires reduction by Sept. 1 of any rates in excess of those stipulated and also imposes a moratorium until Jan. 1, 1968, on any price increases above the ceilings established. Under the two-price system | prescribed, the highest ( ceiling | price for the area is 16.'5 cents per thousand cubic feet of gas. The major producers involved had sought a one-price ceiling for all gas of about 20 cents. The higher price is for new gas-well gas—"to encourage the search for new gas reserves at minimum over-all cost to consumers " The lower ceiling price is 14.5 cents, for all other gas, including residue and casing head. These ceilings include production taxes, which amount to about one cent for gas produced in Texa? and less for that produced in New Mexico.

White SAIGON, South Viet Nam AP) — A Viet Cong attack on a jig aviation fuel dump near the Da Nang Air Base will not seriously affect U.S. air strikes, an American military spokesman aid today. Military authorities said the hit-and-run guerrillas destroyed wo of the nine storage tanks in he complex early today and heavily damaged two others with an estimated loss of one nillion gallons of fuel. All fuel for jets and propeller- driven planes operating from he big Da Nang base comes in by ocean-going tanker and is transferred to the harbor-side storage complex operated by Easso Standard East. It is stored ther until railroad cars ;ransfer it to the base 10 miles to the southwest. Large fuel dumps are located at the air base, however. The spokesman said it is belived they contain enough for immediate fuel needs. An eyewitness said Viet Cong commandos opened their attack about 1 a.m., inflicting heavy casualties with mortar fire on a government outpost protecting the storage complex. Overrunning the outpost, the guerrillas blasted through the main gates of the dump and set the tanks afire with plastic charges and phosphorous rocket shells.

Johnson, in a formal statement, thanked on behalf of the country the members of Congress of both parties who voted for the measure.
