Taylor turns In his final ambassadorial accounting today to a top ranking panel at the White House. On Capitol Hill the administration moved to the House Defense Appropriations subcommittee with its plea for SI.7 billion more plus a 340,000-man military manpower boost to gird for the Southeast Asian war. President Johnson got a two- hour briefing from Taylor late Wednesday. Johnson said he was so impressed by the retiring ambassador's knowledge from his year in Saigon that he called a whole array of administration policymakers to today's 4:45 p.m. EST session. The President also announced he has asked Taylor to be a senior adviser to the President on military and diplomatic matters and has named him to the intelligence board which supervises U.S. intelligence activities. Taylor, 63, onetime Army chief, was chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff when Johnson sent him to South Viet Nam. Secretary of Stat Dean Rusk, Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara, U.N. Ambassador Arthur J. Goldberg, Henry Cabot Lodge, Taylor's successor in the Saigon post, and other senior diplomatic, military and in-i telligence officers were called in for Taylor's report. "The future," Taylor told newsmen after seing Johnson, "is certainly far more hopeful than it was a year ago." He said he left South Viet Nam last week "feeling far from discouraged, although I recognize the serious problems we have — problems that are military, civilian and international in character." "We are on the right track." he said. "It will take time. It will take determination." Taylor declined to go into specifics on just how the war would be won or ended. 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. McNamara, who presented the administration's $1.7-billion request to the Senate Defense Appropriations subcommittee Wednesday, arranged to make a similar appearance before tne House group today. The chairman of the Senate subcommittee, Sen. John C. Stennis, D-Miss., predicted committee action next -week. Obviously this is not all that wil. be needed," he added. The current limited request would raise the military ap propriation total for this fisca year to $46.9 billion and See TAYLOR—Page 14. Britain's Labor Government Boasts Astonishing Record By LAWRENCE MALIN LONDON (AP) — Britain's Labor government came to the end of its first session of Parliament today with a record of legislation astonishing to even its most /ealous supporters. With Prime Minister Harold gram, the rest by individual MP's. The total of 65 is two more than the number of bills passed by the last Parliament, when the Conservatives had a majority of about 100 votes. The opposition accused Wilson of overloading Parliament's an- Wilson's forces plagued by the! tiquat°d procedures with a pro- smallest majority in this centu-' ry, the House of Commons put through 65 separate measures before adjournment until Oct. 26. Some of the legislation represents minor social and economic revolutions in taxation, race relations, capital punishment and other fields.

Teams of detectives with rawn guns searched hideouts the city. At the same time, olice in Gary, Ind., were joined y Chicago police after the two nen were reported seen Vednesday night in Harvey, 111., nd police informants said they iad gone to Gary. Authorities in Michigan, Wis- onsin, Missouri and downstate llinois also were alerted to watch for the men who might lave slain the 17-year veteran 3f the police force. Sgt.'Charles Eichorst, 45, was atally shot Wednesday as he ried to prevent the robbery of i North Side supermarket. The laying touched off what police described as the biggest man hunt in recent Chicago history Eichorst captured one of two gunmen and was searching him when the scond robber dashed out of th store and shot the po iceman. The gunmen fled with an es imated $3,000 taken from the safe of the grocery. Police said all the money carried in a pa Der bag was recovered because ,he bag became torn and the currency dropped out. Lt. John Glas, one of the offi cers in charge of the investiga tion, identified th two Negr brothers as Holice Black, 21 and Richard Black, 20. Glas said as the two robber fled they stripped off thei shirts in an effort to avoid rec ognltlon. He said a traffic ticke bearing Holice Black's nam was found in a pocket of on_ shlrt.

The House of Commons also took the historic step of voting to abolish capital punishment for murder.

Only a few dozen of Commons' 268 separate votes tested the House's confidence In the government and Labor won them all by majorities ranging from 2 to 20 votes.

Opposition within the party delayed labor's most controversial measure, renationalization of the steel industry, and may eventually kill it. Greek Premier Resigns Today ATHENS, Greece (AP) Premier George Athanasiadis Novas resigned today after his defeat in a stormy parliamentary vote of confidence. 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. Before his overthrow in Parliament early today, Athanasia- dis Novas suggested that Constantine call the leaders of all political parties together to discuss the crisis. The outgoing premier saic today the king had decided not to call a council of the party leaders but to consult with them individually. Stephanos Stephanopoulos deputy premier under George Papandreou, 77, was considered a strong possibility .40 -be, asked to form a goyerninent. The king fired Papariflrepii. three week ago in a dispute over wh should control ; the armed forces Also talked about as possible nonpolitical choices wen George Mavros, a member o Parliament from Papandreou' center Union party and the head of the Bank of Greece, and Xe nophontas Zolotas, deputy gov ernor of the National Bank. There were fears that if a las ting solution is not found Greece would revert to the po litical instability of 1950-52 There were nine changes of gov ernment during the two years. The Athanasiadis Novas gov ernment was voted down 167-13 in a stormy eight-hour session of Parliament that lasted l after midnight. Deputies tradet punchs, catcalls and threats am the proceedings were suspende briefly. Speaker Emmanue Baklatzis banged his gave rang his bell and shouted him self hoarse until the braw eased. Outside the parliament build ing 1,000 Papandreou supporter chanted their hero's name and tried unsuccessfully to break through police lines when word of the voting outcome reached them. Papandreou had vowed to bring down his successor and return to power. But this seemed unlikely unless a general election were called. By tradition, the king now should call on Papandreou, as head of the largest party, to form a new government. But political observers saw little chance of a reconciliation between the two. or gas incidental to oil produc- ion in the New Mexico-Texas area known as the Permian Basin. The decision in the milestone ermian Basin area case is expected to be the pattern for rul- ngs in other pending area rate ases and ultimately for orders o apply to all major producing areas. A commission spokesman said t was estimated the decision ivould require refunds of some- hing like $30 million to $35 mil- ion by producers in the Permian Basin area—three counties n New Mexico and 55 counties n Texas Railroad Commission districts Nos. 7C and 8. The commission said virtually all Permian Basin interstate jroduction goes to three pipe- .ine purchasers, who would share the refunds. These pipelines then would be required, under current commission procedures, to pass on ;he 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; Northern Natural Gas Co., Omaha, Neb., 18 per cent; and Trans- western Pipeline Co., Houston, 9 per cent. The commission said about 8 per cant 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, Ne braska, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Wisconsin. The decision requires reduc tion by Sept. 1 of any rates in excess of those stipulated and also imposes a moratorium un til Jan. 1, 1968, on any price in creases above the ceilings e tatalished. 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 iiigher price is for new gas-well gas—"to encourage the search for new gas reserves a minimum over-all cost to con sumers." The lower ceiling price is 14.5 cents, for all othei gas, including residue and cas ing head. These ceilings include produc tion taxes, which amount to about one cent for gas produced in Texa? and less for that pro duced in New Mexico. The com mission said this means tin ceiling prices for gas produced in New Mexico will be lowe than those for the Texas di tricts. Gas-well gas, in the term used by the commission an the industry, is gas found sep arately from oil. Oil-well gas also called casinghead gas. i produced from oil wells. Res: due gas is what remains afte oil well gas or gas-well gas has been processed to remove liquids. In the Permian area, about 97 per cent of residue gas comes rom oil-well gas, which accounts for about two-thirds of he production.

The secretary-general himself and Ambassador Goldberg have stressed the possibility of a U.N. role. There has been no U.S. request for a Security Council meeting on the subject.

Bridge Sets July Record ST. IGNACE (AP)—Mackinac Bridge revenues for July broke all previous' records for the same month. Crossings were up 8.6 per cent, from 258,466 in July, 1964, to 280,747 for July of this year. Revenues rose correspondingly from $1 : 092,000 to $1,193,305. an increase of 9.3 per cent. Bridge officials said the higher increase in revenues over traffic is due to a 20.8 per cent increase in more expensive truck tolls. Johnson said the bill "brings within our immediate vision the day when every American can enter a polling booth without fear or hindrance." The Senate, suddenly speeding up its procedures, gave the final congressional approval to the bill Wednesday night, 79 to 18, and the President went to the Capitol to extend congratulations in person. Johnson, in a formal statement, thanked on behalf of the country the members of Congress of both parties who voted for the measure. "Their action honors much as It perfects our country," he said, and later he added special commendations for the work on behalf of the measure by the two Senate leaders — Democrat Mike Mansfield and Republican Everett M; Dirksen. Johnson said "they will be long remembered for what they have done on this bill."

Second Trawler Nets Torpedo PORTSMOUTH, Va. (AP)—A Million Gallons Of Fuel Lost in Viet Cong Raid 2 Tanks Destroyed, 2 Others Damaged By Edwin Q. White SAIGON, South Viet Nam AP) — A Viet Cong attack on .a )ig 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 million gallons of fuel. All fuel for jets aind 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 transfer 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 l 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. There was no report of Viet Cong casualties. The complex lies about two a similar catch last Wary of eight lives, off Cape Hatteras, take over the registration of voters.

The New Bedford, owned by Mrs Michael Smith of South Dartmouth, Mass., carries a sissippi, Texas and Virginia. Two civil rights leaders expressed less than all-out approval of-the measure. But Dr. Martin Luther Jr., president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, had called the bill "a good miles from positions held by several hundred U.S. Marines. The Leathernecks were not sent to aid the post, which lies outside their defense zone. But U. S. Marine artillery and gunfire from an American destroyer off Da Nang harbor were called on to shell suspected Viet Cong/ positions, military sources said. An informant said fire from one destroyer fell short and hit a Vietnamese force sent to help the beleaguered • post. Vietnamese casualties 'from this were described as moderate. It was the boldest attack In the Da Nang area since Communist squads hit the base itself a little more than a month ago and destroyed three, planes. U.S. warships shelled the hills surrounding the storage complex two nights ago after a report was received that the Viet Cong was readying ah attack on the Esso facility. Just before noon today a Viet Cong mine derailed a railway engine a mile and a half from the o'i storage tanks. The engine apparently was going to pull a line of tankcars from the storage dump. No injuries were reported. Formation of a U.S. Army task force to control all American ground combat forces in the 2nd and 3rd Corps areas — the two central areas of the country—was announced today.
