It'can go for a revision in tie rooms and meals tax. It can go for. a sales tax. It can go for a combination tales tax and income tax. It can go for legalized gam- bling. Administration forces are seek- ing to line up votes for Goy. Walter Peterson's proposed're- vamping of the 5 per cent roomi ind meals tax. The changes would lower the exemption from the cur- to a proposed is cents a.niove aimed at producing more revenue from this relatively.new source. There's growing opposition de- veloping especially from the minority Democrats who plan to wage a war against the Repub- lican governor's recommendation. The governor has warned onu and all that he'll bring the law- makers back into a special sum- mer session If his entire tax package is not passed during the regular session. He's counting on it to provide the balance for his budget. The showdown on (he gambling bill is due Wednesday. A majority of the Ways and Means Committee rejects the idea a minority wants passage of ah amended version. The measure that the minority is backing would create a five- member Sweepstakes and Gam- ing Commission that would have' a virtual carte blanche to oper- ate gambling such as blackjack; craps, keeho and roulette within, the stale. There would be a sweep- stakes type local option refer- endum and the commission could then operate in a hotel in any community where the voters are for it. at the polls. The operations could start in the unincorporated places as soon as the bill is en- acted. There would be no capital ex- penditures by the state. The com- mission would simply lease spaces In designated hotels for its gambling lease necessary. Backers figure the a fturist result in million in the second year of the fiscal biennium. Observers expect a bitter floor when the measure comei up for a decision.

Ntw York Timu NIWI lirvIM plan to abolish the Electoral.College in favor of direct election of the president has aroused criticism in the liberal commu- nity, a presumed stronghold of: support for this major voting reform. Although expressed in some- what guarded terms, the opposi- tion reflecti the fear of both political and academic liberals that direct election would weak- en the effectiveness of urban, independent, Jewish and Negro voting blocks that generally sup- port liberal causes and candi- dates. Most politicians concede that these voting blocks, which'hive often claimed the balance 61. power in larger states; will in- evitably lose influence if tho "Winner take all" system of-al- locating electoral votes Is ended by the advent of direct voting for president. Under the present system, the candidate who gets the most popular votes in a state'; n- ceives all the state's electoral votes, no matter .how narrow his margin. Thus, In a close election in a big state, a rela- tively small voting .bloc can claim credit for the delivery of (major political payload. Under direct election, each candidate simply gets the total vote case for him in any state, a voting bloc's influence it restricted to the number, of peo- ple it can turn out. Any lever- age based on ability to produce intact electoral vote vanish- es. The contention that electoral reform should not weaken the liberal constituency: produced considerable internal dissension in both Americans for Demo- cratic Action and the American Civil Liberties Union but both groups finally voted to support direct popular election. Only one Jewish organization, the American Jewish Congress, has testified against direct elec- tion during the lengthy hearings on capital hill. Its 'spokesman argued generally that the pres- ent system" keeps the two-party TONIGHT IN THE TELEGRAPH.

Generally typical of the Elec- 'toral College defense movement in the liberal academic commu- nity is Prof. Alexander M.

Writing ta the New Republie, of which jhe'is a contributing editor, concede! that the present system "is in effect malappbrtioned in favor of. cohesive interest, ethnic or racial groups within those big states, which often go very near- ly in. bloc for a candidate and can swing the sMte's entire electoral vote." The Yale professor says that the Electoral College also giret the small states more political strength than they ire entitled 4o, although of their wielding it effectively re- mains small.

Instead of transmitting only 15 minutes as planned, the color cameras went on four times for a total of 72 minutes.

Spacemen Plan TV Shows By RICHARD BEENE SPACE CENTER, Houston blue and white disc bobbed in the black vaslness of space as an astronaut focused the camera. A zoom lens pulled the image closer, then pushed it away. It was man's first live, full color television view of home as seen from outer space. The three Apollo 10 astronauts surged nearer the moon with another color television broad- cast on schedule for p.m. EDT. Space Center spokesmen said either the earth-or moon might be televised and that more than one broadcast was possible. Apollo 10 Commander .Thom- as P. Stafford had said before Sunday's liftoff that he and fel- low astronauts John W. Young and Eugene A. Cernan would telecast from space whenever time allowed. The spacemen beamed back three shows for a total of 72 minutes air time Sunday, in- ch'ling two unscheduled "spe: cials" of earth. They caught commercial TV off guard on the second bonus broadcast and appeared only on closed-circuit televison at Mis- sion Control. It included a close- up view of the spaceship interi- close that viewers could count the stari arid stripes on the tiny American flag stitched to Young's sleeve. First came remarkably clear views of Snoopy, the moon ma- chine that will take two of tht three men on man's closest In- spection trip of the moon. Colors during the first spaci view ranged from brilliant or- ange to steel gray. In one close- up, tiny numerals on Snoopy could be read with ease.
