One of the first pieces Olma Jor legislation to work its Way through both houses is Likely to provide for an increase in social Security benefits. This will not affect the spending budget sure to come under hot fire from Republican when Johnson submits it Iff Ter in the month. On its heels or possibly be fore it will come a supplemental appropriation to finance the skyrocketing Cost of the Vietnam War. Johnson has said he will ask Between $9 billion and $10 billion More. The request could be even higher. A As with everything else that affects Vietnam this appropriation is Likely to be used As a forum for acrimonious debate Over Johnson a asian policies. The Senate foreign relations committee already has provided for the beginning of this by calling Secretary of state Dean Rusk for closed and open door testimony Jan. 16 and Jan. 23. With the National debt bumping against its present $3304 in lion ceiling the House ways and Means committee has Given first priority to a proposal to raise the limit still higher. Republicans can use this to assail what Senate minority Leader Everett m. Dirksen of Illinois predicted might be a $20 billion deficit for the year beginning july 1. He promised some fat cutting and water draining pointing to a a monumental outlays for space As one object of attention. Dirksen made it Clear he would oppose any Sharp increase in taxes at this Point. Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana reported the president had made no decision on a possible tax increase. Even if Johnson holds new recommendations to a minimum As Mansfield said he is confident the president will do Congress Walt have its work Cut out for it in dealing with existing programs and expiring legislation. The military draft will have to be renewed before its june 30 expiration Date. There is controversy Over the form this should take but there seems to be a preponderance of opinion against reshaping selective service into a lottery. The Antipoverty and National teachers corps authorizations both the subject of hot Contro Versy expire at midyear. Unless surface signs fail the Pov Ery program May be Tom apart and its. Services distributed among several departments. Rent supplements which go along with these need no new authorization. But they do need funds and that will involve a struggle. The same is True of the demonstration cities program. Civil rights remains an unknown Quantity. Johnson May feel the political necessity for recommending legislation to eliminate most housing discrimination even though the More Liberal 89th Congress refused to take it. Other issues Likely to be controversial include Posta rates a administration request for an increase Likely to be countered by an attack on the efficiency of the postal service. Labor a legislation to curb National emergency walkouts will be considered but action is doubtful unless Johnson lays Down an administration formula. No repeal in sight on state bans on Union shop. Education fight due Over school desegregation guidelines but school Aid seems Likely to be better financed than other programs. Liberals continued from Page 1 the important chairmanship away from him will be made by school Midwest continued from Page 1 roads slowed open Friday were closed a second time by drifts. Hundreds of meetings athletic events and other Public gatherings through the state were postponed or cancelled. In Duluth. A few major streets that were designated emergency Snow routes were kept open i downtown Duluth hotels and motels were filled to capacity Friday night by workers unable to get to their Homes. The Minnesota Highway department reported Only emergency travel was moving in Southern Minnesota. Slashing winds raked North Dakota a Eastern third with heavy Snow on most highways and visibility near Zero. At grand Forks the Snow depth measured 19 inches. In South Dakota most highways were open but High winds caused Drifting and poor visibility. The coldest spot in the nation saturday was Glasgow mont., where the Mercury Sank to 13 below. By contrast it was 78 at West Palm Beach Fla continued from Page 1 collect the tax separately. Two county districts were set up originally by an act of the legislature about 35 years ago according to the schools attorney John Caddell. The three others were created in the last 10 to 15 years when the state passed a constitutional amendment permitting the school system to Levy by districts an additional 5% Mill tax he said. The entire county system collects the tax 5vi Mill tax now along with the three Mill tax. Because of this and because the legislation that set up the first two districts has Sines fax i red the reason for separate districts no longer exists according to the attorney. Caddell said the abolition of the districts will reduce the expense of keeping separate tax records and also the complexity of the school system. However he emphasized that the amount of Money each school receives will not be affected by the change. A Leader of the group rep. Mor Ris k Udall a Ariz. A a Quot Udall said he will ask the democratic committee on committees which assigns members to committees and designates chairmen to name rep. Carl d. Perkins d-ky., chairman of the committee now headed by Powell a negro Democrat from new York. Perkins now is second in seniority behind Powell whose new ranking would be left to the democratic committee on committees. A i will then vote to seat Powell a Udall told newsmen a on the grounds his constituents knowing All the circumstances about him elected him and would undoubtedly continue to elect him. Powell probably wont agree with me but i think in a doing him a favor. This is probably the Only thing that could save his a move to deny Powell his seat at the opening of the 90th Congress on tuesday will be made by rep. Lionel Van Deer Lind Calif. It is the View of study group leaders that if the democrats fail to discipline Powell monday the move to unseat him probably will succeed. And i feel this would be a dangerous thing to do in a democracy a said a study group spokesman. A people Are entitled to a representative of their own choosing and the electorate in Powell a District is under no illusions about him. A but Powell a constituents did not elect him As a committee chairman. That a done by the House and his record As chairman is not one to justify the House continuing him in that Powell is in trouble Over contempt of court sentence hanging Over him in new York anti because of his methods of running his committee. He asserts the whole Effort against him is racially inspired Jeffery j. Burleson Rey.
