This brought to 641 the total of announced . Warplane losses Over North Vietnam. The intensified air raids on North Vietnam appeared to reflect the Johns Fri administrations announced policy of increasing pressure on the communists. Fowler unofficial sources said . Pilots previously had been instructed to go no closer than 30 Miles to China apparently to avoid possible mistaken attacks on chinese territory or clashes with chinese planes but military authorities refused to confirm this. Gen. William c. Westmoreland . Commander in Vietnam said sunday that . Pilots Are getting a new and better equipment and ordnance which is proving More effective in raids against military targets in the North the new York daily news reported from Saigon. It quoted Westmoreland As saying the air Campaign is a a vital part of our strategy it is achieving greater and greater successes As the weeks and months go As the air War came closer to communist China in what appeared to be a lifting of some target restrictions by president Johnson Sharp ground fighting flared in South Vietnam a a Northern 1st corps area. Elements of the 1st brigade of the . 101st airborne division starting operation Benton ran into a withering barrage of Small arms automatic weapons mortar and artillery fire from too to 150 communist troops in a Battle that raged from sunday night until nearly Dawn today. Rangers in action about 40 Miles to the North vietnamese rangers sweeping the ridges where they had battled an estimated 1,000 North vietnamese regulars for two Days West of Tam by said today they had killed 156 enemy soldiers and captured 45 weapons take surtax or inflation Washington a Secretary of the Treasury Henry in Fowler offered Congress a Stark Choice today reject president Johnson a tax increase and open the Way for a possible $29-billion deficit or enact it and still face the Prospect of $14 billion to $18 billion red Ink spending Fowler old the House ways and Means committee these Are the hard facts of the nation s fiscal situation. Hold borrowing he said that with economies the government plans to make and with the to per cent income tax surcharge which he called a a moderate temporary emergency increase a the Treasury can hold its borrowing Down to a level that will not disrupt markets and shoot interest rates up. Thus he said widespread inflation can be avoided. Fowler cited higher Vietnam War costs As one reason for the surcharge and added a we Are engaged in a costly conflict in Southeast Asia with no Clear Prospect of an Early but the Secretary said the surcharge is designed As a temporary measure and a surely one Day will terminate when the in Mies of Freedom conclude that the Price of aggression is too Fowler said the Cost of the Vietnam War now exceeds $22 billion a year. Budget director Charles l. Schultze backed Fowler a estimate of the deficit and said a we Are determined to Cut More than $1.5 billion in spending. A we Are aiming at a Cut of Over $2 billion As a Means of holding civilian expenditures below the january estimate a Schultze continued. Spending shoots up Fowler said the spending estimate submitted in january for the year that began july i May now be exceeded by As much As $3.5 billion including $4 billion for defense and that revenues May be As much As $7 billion less than had been anticipated. Fowler Sclight to show that the proposed tax increase is less heavy than those enacted under comparable circumstances in the past. He said that during world War ii personal income taxes were raised by the equivalent of 730 per cent and the taxes associated with the korean War were equivalent to about a 28 per cent surcharge. In contrast he said a married couple with two children and a $100,000 salary typically would about $111 More under the pending surtax proposal or not much More than one per cent of total income. Lbs argument Johnson in a series of sessions with House democrats has Laid out the main lines of the administration argument a deficit possibly approaching $30 billion would mean inflation higher interest rates scarce Money for the Small business and individual Borrower and quite Likely disaster for the Home building Industry. The opposing argument is that the Economy is not so Strong but that a Burden of the magnitude of the proposed tax increase might depress it and actually reduce instead of increasing governments revenues. Chairman Wilbur d. Mills d-ark., of the ways and Means committee expressed a widespread congressional feeling when he said a i am absolutely intercepted letter Warren file angry Farmer dear Warren City fathers have taken a off Fence at your actions.
