Downtown In Hope School Safety Week Attitude of Naif er Called Encouraging WASHINGTON (AP) - The State Department has termed encouraging President Gamai Abdel Nasser's reported with* drawal of this charge that U,S, planes helped Israel during the Middle East war last June, But department spokesman Robert J, McCloskey would ftnt comment Monday on whether the Egyptian leader's statement in a Look magazine article might lead to restored diplomatic relations— which Nasser broke off June 6, State Department experts have made clear that withdrawal of the charge would be a precondition for renewed rela« tions« There was no immediate indication if Nasser's informal and rather cautious statement in the magazine interview would be considered adequate. The interviewer asked Nasser Beaches Are Closed in Son Juan RANDY WRIGHT AND TOMMY HOLT Randy Wright and Tommy Holt are busy checking student drivers on the first day of Safety Week at Hope High School. By R. GREGORY NOKES Associated Press Writer SAN JUAN P.R. (AP) - Five San Juan hotels hive closed their beaches after oil from a wrecked tanker spread over the sands, but other hotels west of the spreading oil slick reported their beaches still unpolluted to- day. Thousands of tourists left the beaches Monday as oil kept roll- Ing in from the 12,0654on Ocean Eagle, which split in half on a reef Sunday as she approached San Juan Bay. The Llberian tanker carried six million gallons of oil. "Most tourtlsts seem to be taking the problem in stride," said Puerto RIco/s director of Downtown Hope VALUE PAY - Close Out 1 group Slip on TENNIS SHOES .BLACK .WHITE .OLIVE tourism, Hector Pinlero. There were reports that some hotels were getting cancellations, but there was no indication that these were running to any great number. Plniero said beaches sullied by oil, could be cleaned by the removal of an inch of so of sand. Marine biologists said, however, that "no matter what Is done, we have a serious problem on our hands." Our expert said beaches would be polluted for months. By late Monday the slick covered about 10 miles of water. Three tugboats tried In vain to pull the Ocean Eagle's bow from the harbor mouth Monday. May Delay 2nd Special Session WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (AP) — State Sen. Clarence Bell of Parkin said here Monday night he felt that Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller may postpone the calling of another special special session until after the primaries this summer. Rockefeller had said he would call the second special legislative session in May. Bell said Rockefeller may postpone the session to avoid further financial troubles. "If the present economic situations continue to develop you will not be able to tie the governor up in a tow sack and throw him in the race for reelection," Bell said.

COYNE Assddated Pfess Wf Her WASHINGTON (AJ») dent Johnson's 10 per cent in* come fax surcharge proposal, now seven months old, has remained virtually motionless since its unveiling last Aug. 3. But it's still very much alive. There are fresh signs the tax hike will win new attention in the coming weeks, especially in view of the current reappraisal of U.S. troop strength In Vietnam. It costs as much as $40,000 to send a man to Vietnam and maintain him there for a year, So any troop escalation of 50,000 to 100,000 men could cost as much as $2 billion to $4 billion. Administration officials have never abandoned hope for the surcharge even when it was shelved temporarily for the third time by tfte House Ways and Means Committee earlier thts yeaf. And some officials appear more hopeful than at any time since last fat! that the surcharge will become tat before long, Secretary of the Treasury Henry H. Fowler, one of the ar* chlfecls of the surcharge, is expected to make a new appeal for the fa* whet) he testifies Wednesday before, the Senate finance Committee. Although the committee is primarily considering a House* passed bill to prevent the auto and telephone excise tat rates from dropping on April 1> it will be Fowler's first chance this year to appeal for the surcharge in a formal meeting with the Senate group. An optimist when it comes to the surcharge's chances in Congress, Fowler pointed out in a recent interview that it took more than a year to win final approval of the last two tax cuts. There are reports that any escalation of troop strength In Vtetftafft mtfht prompt tftl ministration to pfolwse « surcharge even higher than 10, per cent. : f . Some of Fowler's optimism ,probably springs from *statement by Chairman Wilbur t). &fllis, D'Atk,, of the House Ways ad Means Committee, who last week said a substantial acceleration of the Vietnam ^r could force Congress to ett^fit higher taxes. ,«. Mils cautioned that cutbacks elsewhere in the federal budgei would also be essential. -^ When Johnson last Jariu% submitted his $186.1 billicja budget to Congress for the n$t fiscal year he asked for the sufc* charge to take effect April 1 for Individuals and retroactive.,Jo Jan, 1 for corporations. v .4 This timetable now appeals out of the question since pp) even the lax-writing Ways and. Means Committee has acted 'on the proposal, much less the House itself and the Senate. , iU But an attempt is expected, in the Senate to tack a surcharge to the excise tax bill.
