Young Scott is in Co. C, 3-12 Infantry, 4th Infantry Division. The AP picture was trans- mitted to The Reporter-News last Sunday, along with many others, but was net chosen by editois for publication. Later in the week the Scotts received a letter from their daughter, Mrs. Judi Mikulas of Columbia, S.C., enclosing a clipping of the picture from a Columbia newspaper. Mrs. Mikulus thought the soldier in the picture was her brother, and the parents agreed. Mr. Scott brought the clipping In The Reporter-News, where editors found the same AP picture among unused photos. It is published today. Mrs. Scott said her son had been In Vietnam for three months and they had received a letter dated May 8 in which he said that he had been alerted for duty in Cambodia.

WASHINGTON (AP) The Nixon administration plans to ask Congress Monday for an in- crease of around billion in the public debt ceiling, which would raise it to a record billion. Sources in both Congress and the Treasury Department said Friday the request probably will be between billion and billion, and one Treasury offi- cial said, "I won't rule out any- thing even above that." The current "temporary" ceiling of billion expires June 31) and the limit will revert to Ihe "permanent" figure of billion unless Congress acts earlier. Secrelaiy of (he Treasury Da- vid M. Kennedy and Budget Bu- reau Director'Robert P. Mayo will go before the House Ways and Means Committee Monday morning to plead the adminis- tration's case. A White House spokesman said "I don't know anything about" whether President Nixon will send a message lo Congress as he did last year. The ceiling request, now vir- tually an annual fixture since Congress likes to require the ad- ministration to return and justi- fy its borrowing each year, is based on what Treasury and Budget Bureau experts think will be the peak debt during the coming year. Tlie report Ihis week that Ihe federal budget will show a defi- cit of billion for this fiscal next slead of the predicted bil- lion surplus apparently forced the administration lo raise ils planned request by about bil- lion. The change in the budget probably means the government will be a net borrower next year and will not be able to repay the billion of debt held by (he public that Nixon forecast in his budget message in early Febru- ary. This administration has placed heavy emphasis on re- ducing federal borrowing as a means to make it easier for olh- er those in get Ihe housing needed money. The debt fluctuates from day to day as the government sells securities such as savings bonds, and on March 30 tile total brushed Ihe closest of the year to the ceiling.
