Based on information': gained from aides of both Johnson and Nixon, the issue now comes down to this: Johnson believes the surtax should be continued to further cool down the economy, but be- cause he won't have to .live with the budget he's now drawing up, he doesn't think he should make such a decision without Nixon's concurrence. While he is mind- ful of disparaging remarks Nixr on made about the tax during the campaign, he is hoping that he President-elect, wants the billion in revenue which the tax will yield, and will say so. Sp far Nixon has said nothing, accenting, to his aides, who say he has: not decided what course he'll ;take.

The President's aides are re- ported to be against the latter alternatives on the ground that cuts can be made only in pro- grams that Congress is almost certain to example, the billion federal pay raise authorized for this year. Johnson's aides, while saying they do not know which way the President will move, say they doubt he'll resort, to making cuts that fictional. Nixon's, aides, meanwhile, said only that they would have. no official comment: i Planes Hit Arab Sites -TEL- AVIV..
