TWENTY-TWO PAGES TWO SECTIONS SINGLE COPY, 10 CENTS Business, Labor Split On Controls WASHINGTON (AP) A business-versus-labor split on post-freeze controls opened to- day when Archie K. Davis, president of the United States Chamber of -Commerce, re- jected labor's proposal for a tripartite labor-industry-public panel to manage the anti-m- flation controls. Davis said he favored the continued administration of wage and price restraints by the President's Cost of Living Council beaded by Secretary of the Treasury John B. Connally. --Ti n NBC Today television show just beiore he and other in- dustry leaders headed into a conference on the Phase H con- trols with President Nixon at the White House.

(AP) Two Madison law enforcement of- ficials were expected to be in Canada today on a hunt for two men wanted in connection with the August 1970 bombing of a University of Wisconsin building. Sheriff Vernon Leslie of Dane County and Madison police detective Charles Lulling said before they left Sunday that they knew where brothers Karleton, 25, and Dwight Arm- strong, 20, Madison, had been Board of Work!

Meany headed for Capitol Hill today to talk about more indi- vidual tax relief. 1 The U.S. Chamber leader, a 1 Winston-Salem, N.C., banker, said businessmen want to get back to free markets, but real- ize that Phase II "has got to be a gradual winding down." Davis and the heads of other major business organizations were called to the White House to discuss the problem of con- trols following the 90-day freeze. Farm representatives and congressional leaders will confer separately with Nixon later this week. Connally has not indicated which way the Cost of Living Council is leaning in the draft- ing of post-freeze restraints, but has stated Nixon will an- nounce the long-range program about a month before the freeze expires on Nov. 13. Nixon summoned members of his Cabinet and their wives to Euromart Plan To Devalue Dollar Studied BRUSSELS (AP) The six Common Market finance minis- ters met today voicing determi- nation some optimism: about reaching agreement on a I plan to reshape the world mon- ietary system in such a way that the dollar would ultimately lose its leading role. A key to the success or fail- j ure of the meeting appeared to be the Common Market Com- mission's long-range plan for reorganizing the world mone- tary system. The plan calls for a realign- ment of the parities of leading i currencies, including the dollar j and the dollar's ultimate re- placement by special drawing rights as the basic unit of inter- national exchange. The meeting was called amid I growing feelings within the Eu- ropean Economic Community that the system should be dena- i tionalized. meaning that it no j longer would be based on any national currencies whether on the weakened U.S. dollar or the strengthened West German jmark.

(AP Photo) Senate Takes Up Draft Extension Bill With Stiff Fights Looming WASHINGTON (AP) The Senate planned to take up the draft-extension bill today with stiff fights in prospect over a S2.4-billion military pay raise and language aimed at hasten- ing U.S. withdrawal from Viet- nam The measure extends the draft two years, provides the largest military pay increase in history and urges President Nixon to negotiate a deadline for withdrawal of U.S. forces from Vietnam. The Senate still had before it, meanwhile, a mili- 'ary procurement authorization bill that could face a month or more of debate. But the first item of business, while members decide whether to divide debate up each day or tackle the bills separately, was the draft proposal. Authority to draft men into the armed services expired June 30 when a filibuster de- layed Senate passage of a House-approved bill. The Senate subsequently ap- proved the measure after add- ing an amendment by Demo- cratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana calling for with- drawal of U.S. forces from Vietnam within nine months. But the upper chamber re- fused to act before its August recess on a compromise worked cut in conference. The conference committee bill, al- ready approved by the House, urges the President to negotiate a deadline for U.S. troop with- drawal but sets no date. The administration is publicly urging quick renewal of the draft. Otherwise, Secretary of Defense Melvin R. Laird told the Senate in a letter Friday, critical shortages of trained personnel will begin to show up after the first of the year. However, Senate war critics led by Democrats Alan Crans- ton of California and Mike Gravel of Alaska have vowed to renew the filibuster this week. But their efforts could be overshadowed, or at least de- layed for several days, by early combat over the pay proposal. Some Republicans, led by i Sen. Gordon Allott of Colorado, want the bill sent back to con- ference with orders to restore the pay increase to the full billion approved by the Senate. Allott and others say the billion approved by the House would not draw enough volun- teers to permit phasing out the draft. j WASHINGTON (AP) The Senate Finance Committee summoned top Nixon adminis- tration officials today to ex- plore ramifications of the 10- per-cent imports surcharge im- j posed by the President in his i save-the-dollar campaign. The committee planned to; hear from Paul A. Volcksr, un-1 dersecretary of the Treasury! for monetary affairs, and Nath- j an Samuels, undersecretary of! State for economic affairs. j The surcharge does not re- quire legislative action. But some members of the Finance! panel, which handles foreign-' trade bills, privately have voiced concern about it. They fear there wfll be strong pressure from domestic inter- ests to continue the surcharge, indefinitely and that this could' bring retaliation and wreck the, relatively liberal trade struc-', tare erected over the last 35 years. member who protection for U.S. industry, Sen. Paul J. Fannn, R-Ariz., said he wel- comes the surcharge. It should be maintained, he declared, "until our major trading partners halt unfair practices which have allowed them to flood the U.S. market1 while keeping American prod-' ucts out of their home mar- kets.'' Sen. Abraham A. Ribicoff, D- Conn.. who is conducting the hearings as chairman of an in- ternational trade subcom- mittee, said he hopes the ad- ministration wfll move quickly to take advantage of the ''shock 1 effect" of the surcharge and Nixon's action suspending con- vertibility of dollars into gold. The administration should' seek immediately to work out arrangements to remove non- tariff barriers abroad to Ameri- J can goods and to devise a new' 1 monetary system, he said. j Sen.
