The Afghan pilot decided to make a landing run despite a warning from Gatwick Airport that visibility on "the runway was down to ,100 meters, or 328 feet. Although the Boeing 727 was being guided by the airport's in- strument landing system, the decision, to land was up to the captain.

The investigators also said the plane should have- been 300 feet up at the point where it crashed into a farm house two miles from the runway. When the pilot'called Gatwick for a weather report about7 a.m. Sunday, no aircraft had landed the're for 10 hours be- cause of thick fog." The Board of Trade said that ;after being told that the visibility-was down to the 100 meters in freezing "the pilot-elected; to make an that if he overshot he would divert to an- other airport."

LBJ May Ask Income Tax Surcharge Be Retained But Reduced to 5 Per Cent By JOHN W. :F1NNEY Naw York Times News ..WASHINGTON. President Johnson, congressional sources reported Sunday, is. proposing a J192 billion budget for the next fiscal year that would be roughly in balance, provided the income tax surcharge is con- tinued at a reduced rate. In his budget message to be presented to Congress, Presi- .dent Johnson is expected to pro- pose1 that the income tax sur- charge, now set at 10 per cent, be continued for another year but reduced .to 5 per cent., A billion budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1 would be billion more than the amount expected to be spent this fiscal year. Much of the increase be for an unavoidable growth In non-military outlays, such as a legally required federal pay raise. In addition, while reduc- ing planned expeditures for the Vietnam war, the administra- tion is planning on a small in- crease in the over-all mijitary budget. Wliile the-broad outline of the proposed budget had been pre- sented to congressional leaders in recent days, administration officials inissted that no final decision had'yet been made by the President, particularly on two key over-all size of the budget rate at which to continue the tax sur- charge. Sets Guidelines In effect, President Johnson will be laying down the budget- ary decisions, although the in- coming administration has had no direct role in drafting the budget. President-elect Nixon was re- ported by congressional sources io be still 'sweating out" a de- cision on whether to continue Sale Interior latex Wall'-Rainf Gal. Nashua Wallpaper Co, 129 W. Pearl St. H244H -Winter touri -ThundUP Ul Hie tax scheduled to expire on June, 30, and if so at what rate. While Nixon :has made no li- na! decision, he' 'was said to be leaning toward an extension of the surcharge at a 5 per cent rate. This inclination has been conveyed to. the -.White House, and congressional leaders ex- pect President Johnson will new propose to Congress that it enact a 5 per cent; tax surcharge for the next, fiscal year. Eventually President elect Nixon would be. forced to take a public stand on-extending the lax sill-chares. But: if -the John- son administration, takes the initiative in proposing an exten- sion, Nixon would be offered a graceful political; way out of'his early campaign pledges to end the surcharge. ...V. A key budgetary question now confronting the Jphnson admin- eventually the Nixon .administration and Con- gress as whether a 5 per cent tax surcharge would be sufficient to keep the next budget in balance. With a 10 :per. cent rate con- tinued, revenues in the next fiscal year could Ire expected to to about billion a billion increase over this fiscal year.. If the' tax surcharge were cut to 5 per cent, it is estimated that tax revenues would total billion not quite enough to balance a billion budget. Problem Nqtcrt As a result of and ex- penditures and -unexpected in- creases in revenues, President Johnson said he hoped to sub- mit a budget for the next fiscal year showing a "small slirpjuf." If the President is to fulfill this hope with a billion budget, he presumably -would have to propose that the tax surcharge' be continued at..''slightly more than a 5 per rate. As a matter of political reali- ty, however, there is a-question whether Congress would enact more than S per cent extension. If it proposed a somewhat high- er rate, such as 7.5 per cent, the Johnson administration, could find itself politically up- staged by the Nixon adminis- tration, which could propose that the rate be cut'to 5 per cent with cuts in'spending to bring the budget into balance. The Johnson administration sees a billion budget, offer- ing little or no latitude for cut- ting by the Nixon administra- tion or Congress. Included- in this total -would be about billion in unavoid- able increases, such as for eral pay, interest on federal debts, foreign programs arid medical aid. In addition, the budget would propose a small increase in the defense budget, largely to finance, deferred pro- grams, such as maintenance, that can no 1 jnger be postponed. Accorrtinr, to congressional sources; the budget drafted by th'e President will'call'for billion in military spending next year. This would be billion increase. But this year's mili-, tary budget was held down by a billion reduction in non- Vietnam spending. Without this economy reduction this year's military budget would have ex-, ceeded billion. On the domestic front, the only significant increase re- portedly proposed in the John- son budget will be for federal aid to education. HUD Recertifies City's Program Mayor Dennis J.

Gavshon PARIS (AP) The ap- pointment of Henry Cabot. Lodge as America's chief representative at the Paris negotiations dimmed hopes today that the talks to end the Vietnam war would start before President-elect Nixon's inauguration. Jan. 20. Deadlock Remains Although Ambassador W. Av- erell Harriman .will press ef- forts to launch the conference in the two weeks he has left, there seemed to be nothing the Ameri- cans could do to break the dead-' lock over such procedural mat- ters as the shape of the confer- ence table and the seating ar- rangements. To the South Vietnamese, tak- ing things slowly in the hope of greater sympathy from the new administration, Nixon's. appoint- ment of Lodge came as a shot in the arm. The Saigon leaders re- gard Lodge, whom they got to know as U.S. ambassador in Saigon, as a hardline hawk and a good friend to the present mil- itary'regime.' Lodge's statement in Bonn Sunday night that he regards a settlement in. Vietnam "of su- preme importance" seemed to mean little ta them. South Vietnam's chief dele- gate, to the-talks, Ambassador Pham Dang Lam, has had more than one stormy session with .But Lam, a former foreign minister, was on fine personal terms .with Lodge.. 1 Leading members of Presi- dent Nguyen Van Thieu's gov- ernment focused much of their disappointment with President Johnson's, decision to halt the bombing.of North Vietnam on Harrinian.'

Some U.S. officials seem wor- ried that the: effect of Lodge's appointment .might be to under- cut Harriman's authority be- tween now and Jan. 20. But President Johnson has made clear that he intends to go on governing until the bell rings him so his envoys will press.on. Bednar Wants To Safeguard Recounting Rep. John Bednar, R-Hudson, continues his battle against "Num- ber Seven" despite having failed to get fellow House members to agree to a recount of the con- troversial open "space constitu- tional amendment. The recount of the voles of the amendment, which allows to pass laws ing land at current use, is aca- demic now because the ballots are being destroyed.. Nevertheless, Bednar said over the weekend he will intro- duce two measures to safe- guard the recounting1 of consti- tutional amendments in the fu- ture. One would make provision for a- governor to order a recount when a constitutional amend- ment wins by less than one per cent of the required vote, the other would extend from 60 to 90 days the time when ballots are destroyed after an elec- tion. TONIGHT IN '.'THE-TELEGRAPH Obituaries 4 13, W 11 Hal Boyle 11 Dr. Thostesmi 11 J S As things stand now, .North Vietnam and the Viet Cong (landing fast on their plan for an unadorned roundtablc that would give them both a status at the talks equal to that of their antagonists. The Americans arc ready to accept this formula, but South Vietnam is standing fast un de- mand for some sort.of dividing line that would symbolically relegate the Viet Cong to a place on North Vietnam's team. While formally supporting Sai- gon's position, the Americans, are reported ready to drop the demand for the dividing line.

'Ron, Nixon's press spokesman, said in announcing the Lodge appointment that the President-elect phoned Bunker Saturday night' and got a per- sona! assurance the envoy would do what Nixon judges to be in the national interest.

Israel Rejects Soviet Proposal By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Lebanese and Israeli officials have met to discuss Israel's charges that Arab guemllas have been crossing Lebanon's southern frontier to attack Israeli settlements Meet At Border The Lebanese government said the meetings were held at the border "within the scope of the mixed armistice commis- sion and under the supervision of United Nations observers." "Questions discussed at these meetings concerned the investi- gation of complaints and -dis- putes arising from violations of the terms of the (1948) armis- tice the Beirut government said. L e b a n e s e leaders have claimed repeatedly that the guerrillas do not use their coun- try as a base and that no' at- tacks have been mounted -from Lebanon. Lebanese Defense Minister Hussein Ouweini told a news conference Israel had turned down a Lebanese proposal that U.N. observers be permitted into Israel to investigate the charges that the guerrillas came from Lebanon' to'. launch their attacks.
