The first major hurdle will come next Wednesday when the House is expected to vote on the tax program. But Kennedy was also looking toward the Senate where the bill faces a stormy time Kennedy directed his appeal all along the economic front, from businessmen to factory workers, from families watching their own shaky budgets to citizens, worried i over the government's unbalanced j budget. He asked for quick passage of the bill without a proposed Re- publican amendment tying tax cuts to curbs on spending. Almost as soon as Kennedy fin ished his address, William E. Miller, Republican national chair- man, fired off telegrams to the networks asking equal time to re- ply to the President. Retorting to GOP charges of fiscal recklessness, Kennedy said: "No wasteful, inefficient or un- necessary government activity will be tolerated on the grounds that it helps employment. We are pledged to a course of true fiscal responsibility, leading to a bal- anced budget."

The deadline was set in a letter to Sup. Joseph F. Drexler, Sixth Ward, Oshkosh, County Board chairman and aviation committee secretary, but Drexler did not bring it up at the committee meeting. The closest reference to the Outagamie Winnebago dispute came when committee chairman Sup. Alvin A. Staffeld, Third Ward, Neenah, proposed that the recently revised statement of po- sition by the Bureau of Economic Regulation be furnished every member of the County Board. Rebuked By Steinhilber He received a stiff rebuke at this point from Sup. E. G. Stein- hilber, 12th Ward, Oshkosh, who called his attention to the com- mittee's purpose which he said was "to promote Winnebago Coun- ty Airport.'' "While are on this com- Steinhilber told Staffeld, "you should be for this air- port." Steinhilber said he had been wanting to tell Staffeld for a long time just that, and that Staffeld's proposal to single out one docu- ment from a "pile of documents pertaining to the airport con- :roversy for presentation to the Doard members presented the ap- propriate opportunity. Duties to Promote "You are chairman of a com- mittee whose duties, spelled out in the rules, are to promote this! airport. There is nothing in the rules for us as a committee to do anything with another air- port." Steinhiiber told the chairman that as an individual he has the right, if he desires, to favor the Outagamie County proposed air- port, but that his official duty is to support the Winnebago County B.Qard lCAEn designates a_ re- DISCUSSING POLICY James Palm, left, district sales manager of North Central Airlines, Green Bay, told members of the Neenah Kiwanis Wednesday noon that North Central "favors discontinuance of service at the Appleton airport and the serving of Apple- ton through the Oshkosh facility."

A letter to the Bureau of Economic Regulation from Arnold Kotz, chief, airport systems planning division of the FAA's airport serv- ice, was put into the CAB area airport hearing rec- ord today and was mailed NEENAH "We favor dis- continuance of service at the Ap- pleton airport and the serving of Appleton through the Oshkosh fa- cility at least until such time as the Civil Aeronautics Airport.

In the letter Kotz emphasized the FAA position that Winnebago County Airport is safe and that it presents the most economical solution to the regional airport question. The FAA questions several statements in the Bureau's re- vised statement of position which was promulgated earlier in the month and suggested a joint air- iport south of Neenah.
