Preliminary figures, issued Monday by the Treasury De- partment and Bureau of the Budget, showed roimded-off re- ceipts of hillion and out- lays of billion for fiscal year 1969, which ended June 30. The surplus caused some Democrats in the Senate to comment that the administra- tion's case for extending the In- come tax surcharge had been weakened. Sen. John J. Williams, RDel., t leading supporter of exten- sion, said (he administration is using a new budget basis which counts things as Social Security payments. Without the change, he said, there would have been a deficit. The most puzzling clement of the unexpectedly large surplus was why there was no advance notice. As late as last week, Un- dersecretary of the Treasury Charles E. Walker predicted a surplus of "a little mora than a billion."

(AP Pho- tofax) HOUSE MOVE IS BLOCKED Surtax Extension Showdown Ahead WASHINGTON (AP) _ A fast approaching congressional showdown over extension of the present income tax withholding rates may decide the fate of President Nixon's surtax. House leaders tried Monday to put through a 15 day exten- sion of (he withholding rates to include the 10 per cent surtax levy, but were blocked by a par- liamentary move.

Dr. Don chief economist for the Depart- ment of Agriculture, said he sees hope for a cooling of retail prices as the result of cattle prices dropping troni their early June peak which was an 18-year rec- ord.

But the response Monday by Senate Democratic leader Mike to the administration. He said he would be reluctant to bring up the 15-day withhold- ing resolution unless the Repub- licans, including top administra- tion officials, would agree to a compromise package worked out in the Senate Democratic Policy Committee. This called for a five-month surcharge extension while the Senate works on a big tax re- form bill now being drafted in the House Ways and Means Committee. The Republicans rejected this last week and rcslatcd (heir ar- gument Monday (hat a full year's extension is cssi-ntial to fight inflation. Mansfield replied lhat the siir tax was getting more and more unpopular on his side of the aiste. And he said if the with- holding rales are not extended by Thursday, it seemed likely the surtax would die and be be- yond resurrection. Other Democrats, supporting his argument, said the sur- charge had been incffeclive in Ihe fight against inflation any- way. Some Democrats said they felt the largcr-than-oxpccted fis- cal 1969 budget surplus an- nounced Monday made the case for the surtax somewhat weak- er.

The new strategy is being ap- plied primarily in the 3rd Corps tactical zone which include Sai- gon and the 11 provinces around it, the area in which most of the fighting has occurred since the lull began June 18. The sources said that one im- portant aspect of the shift in strategy is (hat while reconnais- sance and ambush patrols and other small units are continuing to circulate freely in the field, large-scale forces are now dis- patched only in response to in- telligence data that indicates good chance of meeting the ene- my. Meanwhile, U.S. troops swept a familiar battleground north- west of Saigon today in search of North Vietnamese stragglers from the sharpest fight the Americans have reported in more lhan a month.
