PAGE FORTY-FOUR ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1963 Spending Cut Urging Not Binding Denning Report Issued By -IAMES MARMW Pross NYus Analyst WASHINGTON (APt-Thrrr's a bit' riiffrrrnro bofwron ni-RiiiR President Komindy lo korp p\-- prnsps down anrl follinc him hr has to if hr \vants a lax cul. Somp Rppuhlitvins ipnorod it. two in particular. Urging n prrsirlonf to ocmr mi/e leaves him froo lo ask fo higher spending if hn thinks necessary for Hip nation's we fare. For Congress to put a lim on how much lie can ask. par? lyzes him no matter what th national need. For Congress to impose such limit is a sophisticated form buck-passing. Congress, not th President, holds the purse string." He can only spend what Congres voles him. Congress has the ulti mate responsibility for economy Axvay back last spring two Re publicans, Reps. John W. Byrne of Wisconsin and Thomas B. Cur lis of Missouri, were complainin* about Kennedy's tax-cut proposal They wanted spending cut. Both are members of the House Ways and Means Committee which handles taxes. Byrnes and Curtis got more un easy and more specific as thi months passed and it seemed likely that their committee, wher Democrats outnumber Republi cans 15 to 10, was going to ap prove a cut. Kennedy said he wanted the cui to stimulate (he economy by giv ing individuals and businesses more money to spend, even if it meant putting the country deeper in the red for a while by reducing revenue from taxes. The committee Democrats went along with Kennedy but on Sept. 10, when they approved the cut, they urged him to declare he would go along with the idea that "all reasonable means" should be used "to restrain government spending." Kennedy agreed, more than once. It didn't tie his hands behind his back. It allowed him room, if he thought necessity required it, to ask for increased spending. And in his radio-television broadcast Sept. 18 he promised fedora) spending would l>c limifrv to "only those activities whirl are fully essential to the nation.' This wasn't enough for Byrne? and Curtis. They got time on the air, too. to give their side. Curtif said Kennedy "hedged" his prom ises. Byrnes said Kennedy is en d?)ngcring (he economy. Both wanted Congress to write a spending limit into the tax-cu bill. But Wednesday the Democrat run House approved Kennedy's $ll-billion tax cut and. while doing so, beat down a Republican motion that would have prevented a tax cut at all unless Kennedy submitted a reduced spending budget for this year and next. But Curtis had already put his inger on politicians the problem—for the in Congress—when in lis broadcast of Sept. 21 lie said: "The tough part is when you ?et. into the business of assigning iriorities to good programs. It is tough for a person, particularly one in politics, to say 'no' to a desirable p r o g r a m because we can't afford it and all the other desirable programs this year." That could be interpreted this vay: It would be easier on the roliticians, in explaining to the people back home why some 'desirable" program was cut or 'liminatcd if they could put the jlame on the President instead f Congress. But all the argument may end n smoke. Although the House ap- jroyed a tax cut, the Senate may iOt. If the Senate doesn't go along here can be no cut. The budget Kennedy submitted o Congress this year was the ighest in history—$98.8 billion.

In his .1"),000 word document, DonniiiK, Britain's second highest 'wist, held (lint Macmillnn and nis ministers failed in their responsibility by not discovering ind dealing with the romance bc- ween former War Minister John rofumo and prostitute Christine <eclcr. Plans Fight The primp minister plainly in- ended to fight back. He schcd- iled a radio address to the nation oniRlit. Harold Wilson, the Labor party oader, was expected to renew his lemand for a special session of ^arliament—now in recess — to discuss (he report. Macmillan has turned this request down once. Denning emphasized he had found no breach of national security, nor any truth in widely circulated rumors that members of the cabinet indulged in wild sex lives. But he said Profumo's eonduc —his admission that he had datec (he 19-year-old call girl and hac addressed her as "darling" in a letter—was enough to create "a reasonable belief that he hac committed adultery with such a woman." "It was (he responsibility of the prime minister and his colleagues, and of them only, to heal with this situation," said the report, "and they did not succeed in doing so." The question of a betrayal of state secrets arose because of Miss Keeler's friendship with a Russian naval attache while she was having the affair with Pro- tumo. Reverses Self Profumo, husband of actress Valerie Hobson, at first denied lo Parliament there was any impropriety in his relationship with Miss Keeler. In June, in a statement resigning from the government and Parliament, he admitted he had lied. Subsequent revelations at the vice trial of Miss Keeler's sponsor, the late Dr. Stephen Ward further shook the country and produced a national debate on the state of British morality. In his report, however, Denning said he found no general decline in British morality. But he added (here was blatant evidence of secret sex parties among an element of London society. He cited, the instance of a man wearing a black mask, who served dinner at one party "nearly naked except for a small lace apron around his waist such as a waitress might wear." But contrary to rumors, the man was not a cabinet minister, Denning said. The jurist said he had learned the man's identity but did not make it public. In some instances, Denning said, the dinners were followed by "perverted sex orgies." Early saw made of stone were believed first used in the Neolithic period.
