Administration Requests Congress Hike Debt Limit WASHINGTON (AP) The Nixon administration, ciling lower-lhan-expccled tax collec- tions, asked Congress today to raise .the ceiling on government borrowing by billion.: This would increase the debt ceiling from the present bil- lion to billion. Without congressional action, the ceiling would automatically drop July 1 to billion. Secretary of ihe Treasury' Da- vid M. Kennedy, presenting the request to tlie House Ways and Means attributed the expected deficits in -the budget for his. year and the next, largely to smaller revenues than had been expected. "Apart from the effect of pro- posed legislation, revenues have been reduced billion in the current year and billion in Cuba Sugar Output To Fall Far Short Super Bigamist To Wed 6th Time MESSINA, Sicily (AP) Aldo Carlo Donali, who just can't resist a wedding, walked out of jail a free man and a bachelor today after serving six years for marrying five women. .The first thing he. plans to do is get married again. Donati, called "the super bi- gamist" by Italian newspapers was arrested at the door of the Church of San Clemente Oct. 10, 1964, as he was about to marry a sixth wife. "I made five women he protested when charged with five cases of bigamy and var- ious counts' ol fraud, falsifica- tion of documents and misrepre- sentation. But while he was serving his sentence, .he suddenly found himself a single man. His first marriage to Diana Frizzi at Milan in 1949 was an- nulled because il was never con- sumated. His second marriage to Leonilde. Pace in Milan in 1054 and his third to Gilda Ga- brielli in Merano in 1962 were ruled invalid because he was al- ready married. His fourth marriage lo Maria Paola Petrelli in Parma in 1964 was annulled because of differ-, ence of religion, and his fifth to Gabriella Maria Ballan in Pievc di Caslelfranco. Veneto in 1964 was held invalid because of an agreement not to have children. He might have gotten away with a sixth marriage, to Sici- lian schoolteacher Maria.

By LEWIS GULICK Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) Cuba's sugar output is expected here lo fall as much as 2 million metric tons short, this year, of the 10 million ton goal sel by Prime Minister Fidel Castro, and prospects as to when he may reach this target in UK fu- ture remain in. doubt. The'eccnomic cost of Cuba's sugar shortcoming is likely (o borne, as before, mainly by the Soviet Union. Kremlin cco- nomic aid to Castro in to- Wed an estimated million. Politically, Castro's image will suffer from failure to achieve Ihe 10-m ill ion-ton goal on which he.had publicly staked "the honor of the Cuban revolu- tion." But whether this will translate into more active dis- content by the islanders is con- jectural, Castro himself acknowledged in a Havana speech last week that despite an all-out harvest- ing effort, Cuba's sugar output would fail to reach his widely proclaimed target. He indicated il mighl not even reach 9 mil- lion tons. Washington experts now-fig- ure the total will come to around 8 million tans, or per- haps 814 million tons if Cuba has a good wealher break in Ihe remaining harvesting through June.

And what.happens to Cuba's economy is deemed important by diplomats in judging how much Castroism will appeal to impoverished Americans. Castro set the lO-million-lon goal for 1970 in 1961 and, in theory, Cuba should be able to produce this .much. The 1955 harvest was 6 million tons. With 10 million tons a year, Castro could supply 5 million to the Soviet Union for his I.O.U.'s' (Russia buys Cuban sugar at aboul double the .world price) and Ihe rest could be applied to trade with other countries for goods Cuba needs. fiscal 1971, in bplh cases largely reflecting lower estimates 'of corporate profit tax Kennedy said. "This slippage, in part at least, appears to reflect a lower than anticipated level of corpo- rate profit during the first part of this calendar year. H docs nnt reflect any relaxation of our continuing efforts of control in- flation." Kennedy said the request was based on the principle that the government should always have on hand billion in "cash with a further allowance for contingen- cies of J3 billion. Kennedy said.'that in (lie past, (lie Treasury has usually o'pcrr nled willra'cash balance of billion hut "lhat figure has come increasingly unrealistic- in view of the grcalcr size of Ihe federal budget, and unavoidable fluctuations in Ihe balance from day to day and week to week." Kennedy said thai'on April 14, for example, the national debt was billion and the cash balance was only billion.. Budget Director Robert P. Mayo gave Ihe comrnillce a brief analysis of the budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1 which is now expected lo result in a deficit of billion instead of.', a surplus of the same amount. The current year, Mayo said, is now projected lo show a deficit of billion. Pilot, Missing 12 Days, Found Dead SAN D1KCJO, Calif.

Searchers nn the ground found Spry's body on a plateau 20 miles from Ihe downed plane and 10 miles inland. Ifc had been dead two or three days, they estimated. Spry apparently had walked lo the coast, Ihen north and eastward over San Carlos Mesa, which is feel high. "He may have walked 30 lo 40 miles in said the search coordinator, Arnold Senlerfilt. "If only he had stayed with the plane or along the coasl. If he'd kepi going up the coast he would have reached a settle- ment at Punta San Carlos In just a few marc miles."
