Chairman Wilbur D. Mills, who can count on solid support from his Ways and Moans Committee, repeatedly in recent weeks has listed two conditions under which he might take the 10 per cent surtax proposal out of the drawer: — An unmistakable surge of inflation threatening a runaway. — A sharp step-up in money needs for the Vietnam fighting. The second is the one that seems mare likely to develop soon. Capitol Hill is betting it will be asked to appropriate for sonu> degree of U. S. manpower buildup in Vietnam—whether it is the 200,000 additional troops that have been the subject of furious speculation or a much smaller number. And apart from any U.S. build-up, a big bill is expected for replacement and upgrading of equipment for allied forces as well as those of this country. In combination with even a modest increase in U.S. manpower commitment, such a ex* penditure would jump the prospective deficit so far beyond the $go billion mart that the basj. cally conservative objectors to a surtax on Ways and Means probably would bow to the demand for additional revenues. The administration so far has tried to make its cgse for the surtax almost entirely on economic grounds, arguing the danger of inflation and the shaking of confidence abroad in the dollar. Such arguments lack the impact that a straight appeal for a war ta* wouJd. have. There have been, seme contra- Thomas Carter, Plea guilty, fined $16,50.

Problem: must the young woman, when she Inkes the witness stand, repeat—word for word—what she was told on the telephone? It can be embarrassing indeed.

They will "testify with less reluctance," a court noted, "if relieved from the inhibitions imposed by the presence of a curiosity impelled audience." How can the modest witness be protected? The most common method is to clear the courtroom while she is giving the embarrassing testimony. Another method, in case of bodily injury, is to have a doctor testify to the details—if necessary, with the aid of photographs. A third possibility, when obscene language is involved, is to let the woman vritc the words down instead of speaking them out loud. Unhappily, none of these methods is a perfect solution to the modesty problem. Clearing the courtroom raises questions of whether the accused person is getting the "public trial" guaranteed to him by the Constitution. Testimony by a doctor is useful in only a limited class of cases. As for writing words down, that ;reduces the jury's ability to discern whether or not the witness is telling the truth. Because of these conflicting considerations, the law has usually avoided laying down any hard-and- fast rules. Instead, the trial judge is given broad discretion, After all, he is in the best position to decide which procedure, under the particular circumstances, makes the most sense.

By BOB HORTON AP Military Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The Navy plans to launch multiple- warhead Poseidon missiles against Army antiballistlc missile components on Kwajalein Island in the Pacific in a combat-type test. Pentagon officials said they expect the result to be a good guage of the reliability of both advanced weapons systems. The Poseidon is the new Navy missile ticketed eventually to go aboard 31 of the 41 nuclear- drive Polaris submarines. It's intended to increase U.S, assurance of being able to overwhelm Soviet antimissiledefenses, Kwajalein is the site of test radars and antiballistic missile Miss interceptors being developed for use in the $5 billion U,S, antimissile defense shield. Sources said no nuclear devices will be used either by the flock of re-entry vehicles released by Poseidon—which carries JO warheads—or by the Sentinel system's interceptors, Nuclear bursts in the atmosphere are prohibited by the 1963 Test Ban Treaty. But through radar tracking and computerization Kwajalein technicians will be able to tell just how effective one is against the other. As one planner explained it! "We will be able to see on ttie radars just how the Poseidon attack will look, and at the same time launch oije or more Spartan or Sprint antjmissiles at several altitudes to simulate the intercepts." The Spartan is the long-range antimissile and Sprint the su- perfast short-range interceptor. They form the one-two punch of the Sentinel missile defense planned for completion the next few years. In early antimissile development, the Army in 1962 and 1963 staged 10 successful intercepts pf Atlas and Titan boosters. m, Board LiTTLfc ROCK (AP) - Mrs, Margaret Murton quoted from Shakespeare Wednesday In a letter to the editor which was highly critical of Gov, Winthrop Rockefeller, one of his aides and members of the state Board of Correction, Mrs, Murton's letter ap* peared in the Arkansas Demo* crat and dealt with the prin* cipalsloolved In the dismissal of/her husband, Thomas 0, Mur* ton, as state prison superintend* ent last Thursday, She said she had underestimated the "powers of persuasion,., and ruthlessness" of Rockefeller, She urged the governor to read an Inscription to his mother on "the rough-hewn monument on Petit Jean Mountain, and then "meditate on the awesome responsibilities of be* ing both powerful and rich." "A personal vendetta, based on Inaccurate facts, should have been beneath your dignity," she said of the governor. "I overestimated your sstnUlvlty and common sense.
