President Liu Shao-chi, were Supporters of Mao's chief-foe, reported trying to influence the peasants the same way they did workers in the industrial centers — through ecsnomie benefits.

Can you cut enough to make up the $4.5 billion the surtax would raise? If so, specifically where? . A. Congress has not yet received the President's budget. Threfore, it is impossibl to be sepoific about budget cuts. However, it seems that the proposed income tax increase ' is advanced as a vehicle for ?4.5 billion in increased domestic spending. President Johnson might better have set a ceiling of $130 billion or less on his budget under that roof. He then might not have been compelled to request a tax increas. I believe Congress can cut substantial amounts out of the President's budget. The specifics must be left, at least initially, to. the appropriations cemmittees of the Congress. Q. If ($4.5 billion can)not (be cut), aren't you in effect advo- eating a bigger deficit than the President is advocating? A! I am suggesting that Congress can cut the President's budget sufficiently to avoid * tax increase. I am not advocating a large deficit. I am limply looking'realistically at the fiscal mess the President made in 1966 and urging that we start a cleanup operation — through substantial spending cuts. I also would caution that the Republican position on a tax increase is based on the economic indicators as they presently exist. We will review that position from time te time in relation to the state of the economy as the country moves through the fint half »f W7.

"He was stumbling for throughts and words." Lookadoo, Griffin and the other legislator also com' plained that Rckefeller had shown up three hours and 45 minutes late for the meeting without calling to say he would be late, but Nelson and Rockefeller said his lack of promptness was caused by trouble with the airplane in which Rockefeller flew from New York to Pine Bluff to attend the meeting. Legislators who attended some of the other dinners at Which Rockefeller appeared said there had .been no threats or unpleasantness on the part of the governor. Sen.

DeSalvo, 35, was sentenced Wednesday night to 10-years- plus-life after an all-male jury convicted the mental patient on charges of robbery and attack ing four women in their suburban Boston homes in 1964. None of the charges was connected with the series ef killings attributed to the strangler. "It is the fault of no one but the law," Bailey told newsmen as he left Middlesex County Superior Court. The attorney, who successfully defended Dr. Samuel Sheppard of Cleveland, Ohio, in his second murder trial, and Dr. Carl Coppollno in his New Jersey murder trial, said he did not regard the verdict in the DeSalvo case as a defeat. "I haven't lost it yet," he said, citing his plans for an appeal to the Massachusetts Supreme Court. Bailey had asked for verdicts of not guilty by reason of insanity and had not contested the charges against DeSalvo. Bailey challenged the defini- |tion of insanity in the Massachusetts penal code several times during the seven-day trial. He had questioned psychiatric witnesses repeatedly on the subject, including their views on the language of a proposed model definition of criminal insanity as proposed by the American Law Institute. * * * In Ms final argument to the jury, Bailey referred to the witch trials which took place in , Massachusetts in the 17th centu- jry, comparing a guilty verdict against DeSalvo with the ignorance of mental illness which he said was shown in the witchcraft era. The jury deliberated three hours and '45 minutes before returning its verdicts on the 10 indictments, which included armed robbery, assault and battery, breaking and entering and sex offenses. DeSalvo was sentenced to life imprisonment 'for armed robbery, with the sentence to begin after a 10-year sentence and other shorter concurrent terms for the other offenses. Judge Cornelius J. Moynihan stayed the leniences pending the appeal and ordered DeSalva returned to the Massachusettl State Hospital at Bridgewater, where he has been confined for most of the past 26 months.
