TI­ THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS TUESDAY, JULY 3, 1951 U.S.STARTS BACK INTO RED AFTER RECORD SURPLUS Nation Ends Fiscal Year With $3.5 Billion Left Over. DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE TO BE GASSED HELIUM GAS will be used in an effort to preserve the Declaration of Independence. Ink on the document is fading fast. A magnifying glass is needed to make out some of the signatures. The gas also will be used on the Constitution which is still in good condition. Both will be sealed between panes of glass Sept. 17. Meanwhile trial runs are being made with facsimilies. Here are some pictures of the process. By Associated Prcis WASHINGTON, July 3. — The government began sliding back into the red today after chalking up a $3,509,782,624.25 budget surplus for fiscal 1951, ended Sunday. Secretary of the Treasury Snyder, who announced the final 1951 figures yesterday, said government spending may exceed income as much as $3,500,000,000 over the next three months. Expenditures In July, August and September will continue heavy but tax receipts will be seasonally light. Furthermore, Snyder predicted, fiscal 1952 as a whole will pile up a $10,000,000,000 deficit "unless appropriate new taxes are enacted as soon as possible." The House voted a $7,200,000,000 tax hike. The Senate gives indications of making it less, despite the administration's insistance on a budget-balancing boost of $10,000,000,000. The nearly $3,510,000,000 surplus of fiscal 1951 will go down in the books as the 76th in the nation's history. It was the biggest so far except for the $8,419,000,000 record setter of three years ago. The third largest surplus was $1,155,000,000, recorded 25 years ago. Treasury records show 85 years 9f deficits. The Treasury used $2,135,000,000 Df the surplus to reduce the Federal debt to $255,222,000,000. It held the rest to add to the amount of cash it keeps on hand for operating expenses. This cash kitty now amounts to $7,357,000,000. Buy Drinks on One Side of Bridge, Chaser on Other By Associated Press WILLIAMSON, W. Va., July 3. —For years the people of Pike county, Ky., which is dry, have been crossing the river to buy their whisky. Nowadays they're meeting their West Virginia neighbors on the way to buy soda pop. The folks in WiHjamson started their river crossings Sunday to dodge West Virginia's new penny- a-bottle soft drink tax. Seeks Divorce Custody of Five Opal Ramsey filed suit for divorce against Kenneth Ramsey in Circuit court here late yesterday, charging cruelty and habitual drunkenness in the complaint. The plantiff seeks custody of five minor children and alimony for their support. The couple married March 31, 1944 and remained together until January 10, 1951, according to the complaint. Attorney Joe Frank Allen represents the plaintiff. 1 COVER — Dr. Roy W. Wangler puts glass over the top of the Declaration. He's research director of Libbey-Owens-Ford Glass Co., which will seal the documents as a public service. Alvin W. Kremer, left, of the Library of Congress watches the test sealing of the facsimile. TESTING — Leakage of helium from the glass' cases might be a future danger for the documents. Here E. C. Creitz of the National Bureau of Standards shows how periodic tests will be made. He is using an instrument which he developed to detect any changes in the gas. PRACTICE —Louis Gilles puts the tube to admit the gas in place. Helium, being inert, is expected to help slow the fading of the ink.
