Johnson administration's de- clared war on the widening gap in the balance of payments would press every American into the defense of the Congress goes along President Johnson pegged higher taxes as the keystone of a New Year's program he de- scribed as firm and decisive It incorporates the first tory controls U.S in history on American investment abroad and an appeal to Americans to travel only in this hemisphere if possible The investment controls were imposed under existing law Congress will reconsider later this month Johnson's 10 per cent income tax surcharge proposal Government officials held out the possibility of further tions on travel such as a tax on Americans going overseas or limits on the amount of money Higher Taxes Keystone of Program they may take with them said this must be worked out with Congress Henry H Fowler secretary of the treasury said Americans should realize that travel abroad is damaging to the try The entire program is de- signed to slash the dollar drain by 13 billion It includes an fort to cut government spending abroad by million this year and an expansion of exports to increase the trade surplus by at least that much In outlining the program day at a Johnson City Tex news conference the President revealed the dollar drain this year would reach billion to in seven years Johnson also listed higher Vietnam war costs more U.S j spending on foreign travel jger investments abroad and a smaller gain than expected in the trade surplus Preliminary reaction to the plan from Congress seemed I cheery with Chairman William Proxmire of the Economic calling it exactly the kind iof decisive and comprehensive action the situation called for Fowler said the program of- fers some pain for Americans and will mean the foregoing of some pleasures He and other administration officials have in the past con- ruled out a tax on de- parting tourists as one way to close the travel gap which ing 1967 reached an estimated billion a record This type of restriction ever would be up to Congress which likely would think twice about it in an election year Controls on investment over- seas would supplant a voluntary program and cut the deficit by billion bringing total ment down from billion in 1967 to billion A tightening of voluntary con- on bank lending abroad would save another million Secretary of State Dean Rusk said Undersecretary Nicholas will lead a U.S mission to Europe to explain the program and seek cooperation Another mission to Asia will be led by Eugene Rostow under- secretary for political affairs
