But Kennedy has said that he would do everything possible to cooperate with an inquest. Dinis commented after Ed- gartown District Court, Judge! James A. Boyle declined to take any immediate action on a writ- ten request from'Dinis for the inquest.

Liberals scored, however, when the Ways and Means Com- mittee in a special session re- juggled the tax rale tables lo provide more relief, especially for low and moderate income recipients.

Under parliamentary proce- dures, Mrs. Smith's amendment would be voted on first, followed by the amendment by Seni. John Sherman Cooper, R-Ky.; and Philip A. Hart, to bar deployment but allow re- search. Four hours ol debate on the Cooper-Hart amendment, plus an hour on Mrs. Smith's propos- al were expected to precede vot ing scheduled in late afternoon. Pro-Safeguard forces claimed a 51-49 margin, while opponents said they thcagbt the count stood 50 to 43 against deploy- ment with Sens. John J. Wit Hams, R-DeL, and Clinton P.

NAUGHTO.V tttm York Tlnti Strvltl nation's mayors would be able (o work up their own Job training plans independently of the governors under a Nixon administration proposal to decentralize man- power development programs. TTie key decision, pirt po- litical and part pragmatic, is in President Nix- on's plans' to make manpower development efforts more re- sponsive to local In broad strokes, the Presl dent will sketch hii manpower for welfare reform, federal revenue sharing and reorganization of the Office of Economic Opportunity In a nationally televised speech at 10 pja. (E.D.T.) Friday. Nixon will tend messages on his: domestic policies to Con- gress'next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, according to Ronald L. Zeigler, the White House press secretary. One of the most significant aspects of the administration program is the new approach to job training. High administration sources said the states and cities would be provided with federal funds to map and carry out programs that fit their needs. This would mean, it Is hoped, that a trainee would have a greater chance of landing a Job and business and industry a better prospect of filling vacancies. The Proposals Tha plans call for scrapping most of a dozen existing federal programs operated by a half- dozen agencies. Instead, the an- nual J3.5 billion federal outlay for manpower development would be parceled to the states on a formula taking into con- sideration population, labor force, unemployment and the level of poverty. Included in the proposal fs an automatic 10 per cent in- crease In funding If the national unemployment rate should climb above a fixed figure. Car- rent thinking Is that the figure ihould be 4.5 per compares to a July unemploy- ment rate of 3.5 per cent.

Practically, it could also mesh with Nixon's. pledge to make the manpower programs work more efficiently and effectively. .If Congress should approve Mxon's proposal, money would be set aside for each state. The states then 'would receive K per cent of their allocations by demonstrating ability to plan manpower programs. By prov- ing the merit of.the plans, the states would earn another 50 ser cent of their quotas and, sy perfecting their efforts, re- ceive the remaining 25 per cent.
