Manila Conference Called War Council By ROBERT LIU TOKYO (AP) North Viet Nam today described the Ma- nila summit conference as a war council and stopped just short of officially rejecting the latest allied peace bid to end the Viet Nam war. "The 'peaceful solution' pro- posed by the United States at the Manila said Nhan Dan, organ of the North Vietnamese Communist party, "is still more cynical and inso- lent than the 'conditions' which the United States had earlier put to the Vietnamese people and which had been categorical- ly rejected by the latter." The official Hanoi newspaper did not refer specifically to the allied offer to withdraw all for- eign troops six months after North Viet Nam withdraws its forces and aid from South Viet Nam. But Peking's New China News Agency called it part of a U.S. ''peace talks plot" and a repre- sentative of the Viet Cong in Cairo said the Viet Cong ''will never accept peace unless it is on our own terms." Despite the unyielding Com- munist position, Philippine President Ferdinand E. Marcos told newsmen in Manila he has begun "initiatives for peace" following the summit confer- ence. "I cannot reveal them to Marcos said. But he ac- knowledged that the seven al- lied nations that met this week in the Philippine capital dis- cussed which countries might play the role of "honest broker" in attempting to bring about negotiations with the Commu- nist government in Hanoi. Manila sources said Indone- sia, Japan and India fit the re- quirements of the allied lead- ers.

Officials say Social Security taxes could increase a. year for a worker earning as much as and an equal amount for his employer. This figure is based on the present calculations of Social Security officials of the fi- nancing expected to be needed.
