Monagan, R-Tracy, said he viewed the proposal to both reform and boost state taxes as potentially dangerous. The program, authored by Assemblyman Nicholas C. Petris, D-Oakland, and supported by .Assembly Speaker Jesse M. Unruh, D-Inglewood, was cn the lower cliamber floor ready for debate. However. Democratic leadership indicated it would be delayed until they try to push the .Assembly version of Gov. Edmund G. Brown's record budget to the Senate. The spending program for tlie fiscal year beginning July 1 cleared the Assembly Ways and iMeans Committee late Friday on a unanimous vote. It totals S4.16 billion and includes Brown's "bare bones" and "phase H" budgets in one bundle. The lower house leadership agreed to delay a vote on the budget for at least a week to give Republicans, w h o have been critical of the money bill, time to study it. The lawmakers started their final month of tlie 1965 regular session today. But most lawmakers expect a special session, cither to follow the June 18 mandatory adjournment or after a short cooling off spell. Monagan, assem floor leader, a Petris - Unruh tax program in a weekly report to his constituents. The bill would boost state taxes by about St.l billion but redistribute a little more than S700 million, primarily by giving property tax relief and by eliminating the business inventory lax. In its present form, the measure would result in a net tax boost of about S350 million. The new money would come from a one - cent increase in the stale sales tax, an across- Uie - board boost averaging about 15 per cent in the state income tax and a five - cenl-aT package increase in cigarette taxes. "It has long been felt that property taxes on the local level needed relief." Monagan said.

Governmei ^f gives up on WASHINGTON (UPn — The government is finally giving up on its three-.vear effort to find a black bell buckle satisfactory to all three branches of the armed forces. In response to an inquiry from UPI. the Defense Supply -Agency (DSA) said today: "A three-year effort to standardize belt buckles and clips: fur the military services has. been dropped. The three separ-| ate buckles currently in use' will continue to be supplied bv DSA." : This means soldiers and sailors will conlinuc lo get polished Nellow buckles, members of the' Air Force wJH receive nickel- silver buckles and the Marines will keep their traditional reddish brass buckles. The standardized buckle wa.s: 10 have been black. OfficiaisI had hoped its use would save; the government about 524,000 a' year. But a DS.A spokesman said 35 companies had niude the at-! tempt and none had been able to produce a satisfactory black buckle without increasing costs. The subject of the buckles came up after a Pentagon official revealed that Defense Secretary Robert S. McNaniara once had been asked to decide on a standardized butcher's apron for use in the armed services mess kitchens. "Believe it or not, that is not hj-pothetical," Assistant Defense Secretary Solis Honvitz said in a speech to a Chamber of Commerce meeling in Greenwich, Conn.. Tuesday night. "Shorlly after he came into nffice, Mr. McXamara had a; staff meeting in which wore present some representatives from quariormaster.

The DS;\ siwkesman said butchers' smocks had been standardized along with hun- rirc<ls of other iloiiis of apparel.
