Gov. William W. Scranton of Pennsylvania, one of seven gov- ernors who conferred with the President Friday on spending problems, reported that he spoke of the war expenditures rising at least billion "over this present year."

Refuses To Give Up Peace Drive UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) The United States re- fused today to give up on its latest peace proposals to North Viet Nam despite Hanoi's asser- tion ttiat they were a hypocri- tical coverup for military esca- lation. U.S. Ambassador Arthur 3. Goldberg, who made the propos- als in the U.N. General Assem- bly Thursday, told reporters he did not consider Hanoi's reac- tion "to be a considered reply. It is public propaganda." Secretary of State Dean Rusk, meanwhile, was to. have a chance to follow up the pro- propesals privately at a dinner tonight given by Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko. The talks between the two start- ed Thursday when Gromyko was Rusk's dinner guest. Neither side would say what they meant to discuss, but their subjects seemed likely to in- clude Viet Nam, European secu- rity, disarmament, prevention of the spread of nuclear weap- ons and a treaty for peaceful exploration of outer space.

Heaviest Bombers Again Strike Into North Viet Nam SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) Waves of U.S. B52 bombers raided North Viet Nam today for the third time in four days. The huge bombers, flying above the weather, struck again in the southern end of Nortl Viet Nam just a few miles north of the demilitarized zone. The bombers hit Com munis infiltration routes, truck parks and storage depots. Smaller U.S. tactical bombers gave the one e-demilitarize< zone between North and Soutl Viet Nam a going over, pound ing seven North Vietnamese storage areas in the zone. In South Viet Nam, ground fighting was small and scat tered. The crack South Korean Tige: Division ended a six-month-oli operation and promptly launched a new one. Simullane ously, Australian troops termi nated their current operation and the U.S. command an nounced that the recently ar rived 196th Light Infantry wa in action for the first time. The U.S. command said th total number of U.S. planes los over North Viet Nam, as of Fri day, was 385. The B52 raids today inarke the fifth time in the war that th eight-engine intercontinenta bombers have raided North Vie Nam. Two of these raids wer made last April against the M Gia Pass and the other thrc were made Within the last fou days. And Sen. John Stennis, D- tfiss., Appropriations Commit- tee member and chairman of ;he Preparedness subcommit- :ee, said he believed the war :ost now was running at a billion a month level.

Director Arnold Christie, City Manager Gerald Fox and City Attorney Hugh Kincaid dis- cussed the proposal yesterday afternoon with Joe Bailey and Tom Cornwcll. The third repre- sentative of the proposed ser- vice, Jamie Coleman, was out of town. After the meeting, Fox said the city is still proceeding on the basis that it will have to begin operation of the ambu- lance service on Oct. 1.

He did not sound optimis tic, however. Christie said he was definitely opposed to subsidizing a private firm, but Iliat the city should lake on the operation of the ser- vice only as a last resort. Asked if they had reached any area of possible agreement with the city, Cornwall replied "no- thing concrete." He and Bailey would not comment further. Christie, Fox and Kincaid were appointed by the board of directors to handle the city's negotiation on the private am- bulance service after hearing a request for a subsidy. Bailey, Cornwcll and Coleman sebk an additional sub- sidy from Springdale. Both Fayetteville and Spring- dale city officials were of the opinior that the subsidy request was too high.

(AP) Efforts to come up with a solid lead in the murder of Valerie Percy intensified today as Police Chief Robert Daley asked for more investigators to help check out the many tips pouring into his office. Fingerprints found in the Per- cy home, a bayonet termed by Daley as the "possible'' mur- der weapon and the results of a lie.detector test were being studied by the Chicago Crime Laboratory. Earlier, a Chicago police crime laboratory technician produced no physical evidence linking the bayonet to the crime. However, Capt. Daniel Dra- gel, head of the crime labora- tory which is working with Ken- ilworth police and other agen- cies -said that he expected that examination of all physical evi- dence in the case would be com- pleted by Wednesday. He said a complete report would be issued by the laboratory at that time. "I'm going to ask for help from a great number of Daley said Friday nighl at a news conference.
