Astronauts Plan Workout As crews completed systems checks on the 36-story-tall rock- et-spaceship combination today, astronauts Neil A. Armstrong, Edwin E. Aldrin Jr. and Mi- chael Collins planned a day-long workout in the command ship simulator, practicing the engine maneuver that shoots them out of earth orbit and sets them on a quarter-million-inile course to the inoon.

(Telegraphoto-Andruskevich) Greater Cutback Urged By Democratic Leaders By WALTER R.MEAKS WASHINGTON (AP) Senate Democratic leaders have quietly approved a call for a far greater cut- back in U. S. troop strength in Europe than now planned by the White House. Senate Democratic Lead-! er Mike Mansfield described as inadequate President Nixon's order to withdraw some military men from overseas bases during the next year. Areas Not Listed The White House did not dis- close the specific areas in- volved, but the order announced Wednesday exempted Vietnam and other spots of trouble and tension. "This is a step in the right di- rection, but it's only a drop in the llansfield said la an interview. It was learned the Senate Democratic Policy Committee already has agreed to back a 'esolution urging the adminls ration to substantially reduce U. S. manpower In Western Eu rope. A Senate source said Demo- cratic leaders discussed the Is- ;ue Tuesday and agreed in ad- vance the resolution would have their formal endorsement. "The trend Is Mansfield said after the announcement cl the forthcoming man re- call. "The only thing to do Is accelerate it" He said the United Stales is maintaining bases, 400 of them major inslalla cover- ing square miles in M for- eign nations. All he said, some 1.75 million troops, dependents and employes are based overseas. Mansfield said it wouM repre- sent real progress if those fig- ures were cut in half. The White House announced men will be brought back to the United Stiles during the next year "in the interests of lessening budget and balance of payments costs and of reducing presence over- the American seas." This, piss x reduction of some civilian employes could lead to eventual balance) of payments savings of J75 mil- lion, the White House said. Civilian payroll cutbacks are to be general, including a 10 per cent reduction in South Viet- naa. But the military cuts do no! jpply 19 forces in South Korea. Berlin, to other areas of Southeast Asia where' U.S. forces support military erations, or to manpower com-' mittee to the North Atlantic' Treaty Organization. Presumably, this .means re- ductions in U.S. forces in Spain. Japan, and Turkey. The kind of cutbacks Mans- field wants would have to come in the NATO area, exempt from the Nixon order. The United States has KS.OM men in West Germany alone. Mansfield said the Cermani are in far better economic shape than the United States to provide forces for their defense. But he added: bn't balance of payments, it Isn't Vietnam, it's an occupation 'army a qsarter century later." "The tact that the' govern- ment might like them Mansfield said, "doesn't mean that the people want to have them there." Meanwhile, West Germany agreed Wednesday to fl.52 billion' In the next two years to help maintain Ameri- can troops and their dependents in Germany.

Maes Cares of Pelham State OEO Head Upholds Firing of Mrs. Malarkey Robert R. DeVoid, slate direc- tor of the Office of Economic Op- portunity, backs the Community Action Program board in its dis- missal of Mrs. Mary B. Malarkey of Nashua. Mrs. Malarkey was ousted as director of the Head Start pro- gram in May. Her firing precipi- tated a controversy leading to De- Void's Investigation. He had been asked to explore the dismissal by Councilor Bernard A. Streeter Jr., of Nashua. Head Committee A copy of the state OEO direc- tor's findings was made available lo the Telegraph by Royal Dion of Nashua.and Charles McGet- ligan Jr., of Wilton, co-chairmen of tie directors for the county's Community. Action Committee, Ronald Phnbrick of Milford Is ex- ecutive director. The cOHcnalrmen said that DC- investigation "clearly up- holds tie actions not reappointing Mrs.- Malarkey for valid and just reasons, and it farther proves beyond all doubt, that the make-up of the board is totally fn compliance with OEO deadlines, and that the poor are duly and properly represented." Dion ind McGeitlgjn said they "still awail the results of the fa. vesligation requested by them arid conducted by the Office of Inves- ligition, Office of the President, is requested by the Regional OEO Office. Commenting on that section of the DeVoid report, concerning partitipatioa of the Parent Advis ory Committee in the selection o the Head Start director, the co- chairmen said that Mrs. Malar key had been hired by the Uni tariin-Unhrersalist Church during the time when they conducted the Head Start program as a dele- gate agency. "The HuTsborough County CAP assumed control of Head Start after Mrs. Malarkey had been employed, therefore the CAP Par- ent Advisory Committee was formed after Mrs. Malarkey's em- ployment, ihus were in no posi- tion lo participate in the selection of the director. The CAP Board has every intention of consulting [he Parent Advisory Committee in the selection of any new full- time Head Start they staled. "The two said they agreed with Ihe DeVoid report's rccommenda- lion lo tighten administration con- trols, and pointed out that steps n this direction had already been taken early in the wilh a fun and complete audit of an CAP Programs, by an inde- pendent certified auditing firm and that the desire for more ef- fective aininislratrre control was major consideration In the de- cision not lo reappoinl Mrs Ma lirkey.

"The director of Round Head Start resigned from her position on about April 21 for reason of health problems.

The board chose not lo consider her for the position of director ol the Year Round Head Stirt pro- gram. Question!

Proposal on Price Controls Angers President and Aides By EDHTN L. DALE JR. YorV Ni.i tilrici WASHINGTON There is considerable cnbappiness within the Nixon administration at the suggestion yesterday by Secre- tary of the Treasury David M. Kennedy, for the second time, that wage and price controls might be considered if Congress failed to pass the income tax surcharge and inflation con- tinued. Whether President Nixon chastised Kennedy for his re- marks to the Senate Finance Committee is not known, but Niion's views on the issue seem clearly revealed by aa episode about two weeks ago. Paul W. McCracken, chair- man of the Council of Economic Advisers, discussed the issue o) controls wilh the President, with curbing: precisely Such remarks; byv high officials as those'made by Kennedy. The reason is that even mentioning controls can induce some price increases that would not otherwise occur.' The President, it is under- stood, responded in terms something tike this: "Controls! Oh my God, no! I was a lawyer in O.P.A. (the Office of Price Administration) during the war and I know all about controls. They mean ra- tioning, black markets, inequit- able administration. We'll never go for controls." This position has been rein- forced publicly by Niion's closest adviser on domestic matters Arttm F. Burns. On the television program "Issues and Answers" late last month, a questioner cited Nix-, on's campaign statement that controls were "an abdication of fiscal and that "they do not work, can never be administered equitably and are not compatible with a free economy." Then this exchange wilh Bums followed: Q. Is that still the policy of this administration? A. You have stated Nixon's position before the campaign correctly, and that is still Mr. Nixon's position and that is also the position of the entire ad- ministratiotu Q. There will be no controls? A. I say that flatly. In an-interview with U. S. News and World Report, pub- lished earlier this week. Burns was asked, "Is there any sup- port for controls within the gov- He replied. "There is no support for direct controls of prices or wages within the executive Apart from everything else, there is now BO legal authority for controls. Congress would have to approve them.
