Senators pushing for final OK of revenue sharing bill By JOE HALL WASHINGTON (AP) Senate leaders are pushing for final passage of the $34.8- billion revenue-sharing bill but first must consider a couple dozen amendments, including one that would help finance the program. The Senate acted on 22 amendments in four days of debate last week but at least as many are pending, including a tax-reform measure and a series to increase Social Security benefits. The tax flincndment, sponsored by Sens. Frank Church, D-Ida., and Gaylord Nelson, D-Wis., would raise $3.7 billion in revenue to help offset the more-than $6-bilb'on annual cost of the revenue-sharing program It would raise an estimated $1.9 billion by beefing up the minimum tax plan adopted in the 1969 tax-reform act, to get some payments from wealthy persons who are able to use various preferences to reduce o r eliminate their tax liability Another $1.8 billion would be obtained by repealing the accelerated depreciation allowances for business firms enacted last year at President Nixon's request. "It is nothing less than folly," said Church, "to pass this huge revenue-sharing bill without raising a dime to pay for it. "The federal government has no revenue to share, only mounting debts." Some other senators remained unconvinced the revenue-sharing bill should be passed at all. Sen. Adlai Stevenson III, D- 111., pointed out that the plan first was 'proposed in 1964 at a time when federal surpluses were in prospect. It was rejected then but, he declared, it makes much less sense now at a time of very large and mounting federal deficits. The program "will not reduce taxes; it more likely will increase taxes," Stevenson asserted. The Senate bill, worked out in its Finance Committee, contains a money-distribution formula which generally gives much more money than the House bill to the smaller and poorer states and less to the large, wealthy states. SAIGON (AP) - The Viet Cong issued a new peace statement today saying it is "prepared to accept a provisional government of national concord that shall be dominated by neither side." U.S. sources in Saigon interpreted this as a concession that neither side can win the war militarily. But Viet Cong and North Vietnamese spokesman have said repeatedly in the past—for public consumption, at least- thai the coalition government they proposed would be a coalition of equals, with none of the factions dominating. The Viet Cong termed the three-page declaration "an important statement on ending the war in Vietnam and restoring peace." But at first reading it appeared to be no more than a reiteration of previous Communist peace demands. Once again it called on the United States to withdraw all its troops from Vietnam, to stop supporting the regime of President Nguyen Van Thicu. and to halt the bombing and mining of North Vietnam. The Viet Cong also repeated its previous formula for the makeup of the government of national concord—a three-segment coalition composed of ( 1 ) members of the Provisional Revolutionary Government, (2) members of the Saigon administration excluding Thieu, and (3) representatives of other po- litical forces in South Vietnam "These three .segments of "including those who, for this government are on the political reasons, have been same footing and equal," the compelled to live in exile." statement said. Indiana attorney general seeks probe of rockfests INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana Atty. Gen. Theodore 1. Sendak has called for a federal grand jury investigation t o determine whether organized crime hr.s an interest in large ro.-k music festivals. Sendak said large rock gatherings give the criminal drug pusher a "supermarket operation set up for his benefit and... the longer the orgy lasts the more he sells." Sendak's statement was triggered by the Labor Day weekend rock festival at Bull Island, on the VVabash River between Indiana and Illinois, and last Saturday's day-long festival at Bush Stadium in Indianapolis. The attorney general, a He- publican, said a "block signal'' communication system which operators must have in order to get large quantities of drugs to the sites, indicates that organizde crime has its "greusy palms in the operation." The festival at Bull Island, which drew a crowd estimated by police at nearly 300.000. included widespread and open drug use. Indiana and Illinois state police kept watch from the river banks, and at least 50 persons were arrested on drug or alcohol charges as they arrived at or left the festival. About 12.000 persons attended Saturday's festival at Indianapolis, described by Police Maj. Henry .1. Wolff as "nothing but an open air zoo," at which 11 adults and four juveniles were arres'.ed on drug charges. 4 rescued from lake MILWAUKEE (AP) — A young boy and three men, sighted by passengers on a car ferry, were rescued Sunday after spending more than five hours in Lake Michigan when their boat overturned. Larry Marohl, 8, of Glendale Heights, 111., was treated for shock and exposure, and his father. Orlen, was treated for exposure before both were released from a Milwaukee hospital. Nick Shaw and John Flynn, also of Glendale Heights, did not require hospitalization. Ernst von Briesen of Whitefish Bay, a passenger on the ferry which was returning to Milwaukee from Ludington, Mich., said a small boat was lowered to rescue the four after they were .spotted about 12 miles out of Milwaukee.
