The apprehension was articulated earlier yesterday by NATO Secretary General Joseph Luns, who told a pie-summit press conference: "Recent developments in Southeast ferred the case for decision by all seven justices of the Supreme Court, The justices, now holding their regular monthly consultation, could order a hearing before the full court or decide on the basis of the Wilkins report what action if any, should be taken. That action could include censure, suspension as a judge or disbarment as a lawyer or dismissal of the allegations contained in a 30-page information filed with the court March 25.

"This applies not only to public opinion in our own countries but to the perception:, of any potential adversaries.

Funds run out for 10,800 on welfare in state By Jonathan Fuerbringer and Michael Kenney Globe Staff House Speaker David M. Bartlcy will push for passage of an emergency welfare appropriation bill this morning to prevent further cutoff of benefits while the Massachusetts Legislature works on a package of bonds and taxes to pay off the fiscal 1975 budget deficit. Bartley's proposal which may not win the approval of Gov. Michael S. Dukakis will come as the House and Senate prepare to resolve the differing tax packages passed by the two branches yesterday and on Tuesday. The Senate passed its version of the tax package on a voice vole at 10:40 p.m. after adjourning seven times in order to run through eight "legislative days" in nearly five hours, to get the bill back to the House for further consideration. Still awaiting passage is a $497.8 million deficiency budget for fiscal The W e 1 f arc Department mailed 10,800 envelopes yesterday to welfare recipients, but they contained no checks.

Checks for 10.800 AFDC (Aid to Families with Dependent Children) recipients, which were to be mailed yesterday, were held up because the AFDC account, is out of money. The recipients were instead sent a letter o'' explanation and. for those eligible for food stamps, vouchers to obtain tree a portion of their monthly si amp allotment. "The financial crisis of the state," Bartley said in an interview last night, "should not rest on the (welfare) recipients." Asked whether Dukakis should have avoided last night's suspension of benefits by submitting his own special appropriation last week instead of demanding passage of the entire bonds-and-tax proposal, Bartley said: "I don't want to speculate over who's to blame for it. We are more interested in solving the problem and getting money to AFDC children. Again, this is government by crisis." Bartley did not say how many days or weeks of AFDC welfare checks the special appropriation would cover, but he said he expected it to total around $30 million. This amount would cover AFDC checks well into June and also prevent the cutoff of General Relief checks June 15. Money for the appropriation, Bartley said, would come from the extra revenue from a recent sale of capital outlay bonds by slate Treasurer Robert Q. Crane.

At the same time, home heating oil and gasoline consumers will pay 3 cents a gallon more as a result of the $1 tariff imposed on imported crude oil Feb. 1 and the $1 tariff to go info effect on Sunday.
