unidentified viewer who shared the interest of the photographer May start hearing next week f f WASHINGTON AP Chair man Harry F Byrd of the Senate Finance Committee says he may open public hearings next week on President Kennedys tax cut bill Indications are however that lengthy committee deliberations and a decision to seek Senate ac tion first on controversial civil rights legislation will delay final congressional action until early next year Senate Democratic leaders made plain Tuesday they planned to bring the civil rights bill up for a Senate vote before the tax cut measure which was passed last week in the House The civil rights bill is expected to touch off a battle that almost certainly will include a lengthy Southern filibuster against the bill Thus even if the Senate Finance Committeemoves quickly on the tax bill the Seriate would be fln able to consider it until it dispos es of civil rights Byrd Virginia Democrat said Secretary of the Treasury Doug las Dillon would be leadoff wit ness at the tax bill hearings His announcement came Tuesday aft er his committee voted 11 to 4 against a move by Sen Paul Douglas DI11 to speed up hear ings Its avery unfortunate deci sion Douglas said In effect we will have no tax bill this year Sen Everett M Dirksen ofIlli nois the Senate Republican leader and a Finance Committee mem ber said the committees vote meant the

Wednesday re ceived a report on the confused situation in South Viet Nam from Defense Secretary Robert S McNamara and Gen Maxwell D Taylor f According to reports McNa mara probably found no final an swer in South Viet Nam to two important questions He probably didnt learn how to get President Ngo Dinh Diem to do what the United States thinks must be done to win the war against the Communist Viet Cong Or what would happen if Diem were overthrown But McNamara left for Wash ington Tuesdaywith a massive report that should help President Kennedy make one crucial deci sion whether the Communists can be defeated if the United States continues to support Diems authoritarian and increas ingly unpopular regime The defense secretary probably had much of the information he got here before he left Washing ton last week One highly placed sympathetic diplomat described McNamaras trip as apiece of necessary showmanship for the benefit of increas ingly hostile hftheAmerican com mitment in South Viet Nam McNamara covered more than 2060 miles in his swing through major war zones s He conferred with Diem three hours The visit probably was too brief to get across more than an impression of ITS displeasure with Diems repressive tactics McNamaras report probaSly will follow the line of previous observations of American officers on the scene An intelligent guess can be made on its main points On the basis of recommenda tions available before he arrived McNamara probably will recom mend no increase in the force of 15000 US military men in Viet Nam and no increase in the cur rent million

topics Paul wants covered It was not said how base com manders would collect the ma orders race probe terial Presumably military per sonnel will be sent out to make onthespot checks in communities surrqunding the bases This newest action in a series of Pentagon moves aimed at eas ing discrimination against Negro servicemen appeared likely to meet strong criticism from South ern members of Congress The questionnaire delves among other things into local customs and laws and local laws enforce ment questions Two of the instructions are phrased this way 1 Briefly describe any local customs or laws which prevent or are enforced in a manner which discourage voluntary offbase as sociation by white and Negro mil itary personnel and their de pendents when traveling in private automobiles using public side walks or visiting each others resi dences 2 Is the treatment accorded Negro military personnel by the local police in any way different from that accorded white military personnel K so specify Under public transportation heading Paul told base com manders to kind of commercial transportation service to base whether or where integrated whether bus service in town is in tegrated whether seating policy for military personnel and their dependents differs from that ap plicable to other riders plus other facts necessary to a full under standing of actual In exploring education around bases the Pentagon directive asks commanders to describe facilities used by military personnel indi cating which are integrated Housing is covered in only one question Do white and Negro
