Wilbur D. Mills, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, received support Tuesday from his home front on his position on the proposed 10 per cent income tax surcharge. Five groups of influential Pulaski County businessmen and civic leaders met in a joint session here and adopted a resolution saying it was time for patriots to support officials like Mills. The committee which Mills chairs has bottled up President Johnson's proposed 10 per cent surtax. Mills says no action will be taken i on the proposal: until there is - a reduction 'in* federal spending. The resolution said Mills had "the courage, determination, breadth of vision and tenacity of purpose to adhere unyieldingly to those economic principles which have been so sound in the past but recently have been warped." The resolution was adopted by the boards of directors of Fifty for the Future, Inc., Committee of 100, Urban Progress Association, Little Rock Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Little Rock Unlimited.

SMITH Asks Money System Change PARIS (AP) -"President Charles de Gaulle told his Cabinet today the present crisis of the British pound and the U.S. dollar proved that the existing monetary system is "inequitable and henceforth inapplicable." Information Minister Georges Gorse, reporting this to newsmen after the regular weekly Cabinet meeting, quoted De Gaulle as adding: "In trying to impose it any longer would be to condemn the free world to grave economic, social and political trials." The French president, long a partisan of a return to the gold standard, also was quoted as having urged "a monetary system based on gold which alone has the character of immutability, impartiality and universality." "France," De Gaulle said, "is ready to take part in such a reform of the International monetary system and hopes to see the European Economic ComJ muntty (Common Market) play, the role which It should, !'.
