Apply in peprson to TiURD AVENUE $2.5 MILLION Funds Asked For Ch anne President Kennedy's proposed budget for the new fiscal year earmarks $2.5 million for con* slruction on the multi-million dollar project to widen and deepen the Calcasieu river ship channel, the Associated Press said today. A Washington dispatch listed the local project with several others in Louisiana for proposed appropriations for various "c o n- struction" purposes throughout the state. Locally, further details could not be learned immediately from various sources, pending more official information in the event the presidential proposals are adopted. Meanwhile, a $100,000 survey, made possible through a. previous federal appropriation, continues in preparation for starting actual construction operations. Plans are to change the channel's depth from 35 to 40 feet and width from 250 to 400 feet for the waterway's entire length from Lake Charles Harbor and Terminal district docks in Lake Charles to the Cameron jetties. The requested 'appropriation in the Kennedy budget would be for the first stage of the channel deepening project. It has been estimated that the entire channel deepening project will cost around $17 million. The work would be accomplished over a period of years as Congress appropriated funds for the different phases of the project. Not included in the cost of channel construction is an estimated $2 million for rights-of-way. The rights-of : way are being acquired by the Lake Charles Harbor and Terminal district now. Funds for this purpose will come from the $13 million port improvement bond issue approved by the voters last spring. In addition to acquiring rights-of-way, funds from that bond issue will be used to build an industrial canal south of the city, plus a number of other improvements at the present port facilities and at the industrial canal site. Other federal appropriations proposed for Louisiana "construction" in the President's budget for the new year beginning July 1 were listed as follows: The sum of $2,569,000 for deepening the Mississippi river from Baton Rouge to the Gulf; $8,000,000, for a gulf outlet; $940,000 for aquatic plant control throughout the state; the sums of $600,000 and $500,000, respectively, for developments in Bayou Lafourche and Freshwater bayou.

' The 1,500-page .spending blueprint* which the 1963 fiscal year starting July 1, foresee* a rise; of nearly $3.5 billion over the cuKpent le; than 75 per cent of the increase would involve and space programs. Kennedy told Congress he experts outlays ,frf slightly more than $92.5 billion — an amount 8J&< only twice before, during World War II, 'Revenues' estimated at $93 billion, an unprecedented level $11 billion higher than this year's income. l, J i Highlighting the 7,400-word budget message which Kennedy sent to Capitol Hill were these recommendations: A defense program of $52.7 bil- ion, up nearly $.5 billion. Allocation of space research, $1.3 billion. $2.4 billion for an increase of A foreign aid program boosted by $200 million to $3.9 billion. But along with that spending figure, which includes $2.5 billion in economic aid and $1.4 billion mili- ;ary aid, Kennedy asked nearly billion of new funds. The new money would include $3.39 billion 'or various economic aid programs and $1.5 billion for mili- :ary aid. Repeal of the 10 per cent tax on rail, bus and boat fares, with ater adjustments in aviation taxes. Enactment, of. a new farm bill designed to cut farm program spending from $6.3 billion to $5.8 million. Increase the "temporary" $298 billion national • debt limit to a, new high of $308 billion. ' Increase postal rates by about f600 million a year. The new budget assumes that the Berlin crisis will cool off enough to permit the return home by June 30 of military reservists mobilized last fall. Any heightening of cold war tensions could prompt new hikes in defense spending, and .wipe out the indicated surplus. Kennedy also based his projec tions on an' assumption that the economy will continue to expand briskly into 1963, though perhaps at a lesser rate as time passes. The President said major economic records will be broken month after month while-the unemployment rate will drop from 6.1 per cent to 4 per, cent by mid-1963. The fate of the postal rate request, which has been shelved three years running, also will lave a major impact on the budget. Without higher rates (including a 5-cent letter charge) to add to the anticipated big increase in tax collections, Kennedy's envisioned surplus would evaporate—barring major economy moves in other areas. Many congressional Republicans — and some Democrats — were ready to demand greater economy and a bigger surplus in order to whittle down the record national debt, now nudging the $298 billion ceiling. Anticipating this, Kennedy said a $463 million surplus would reflect "the best national policy." He said deficit spending might promote inflation while a larger surplus "would risk choking off economic recovery -and' contributing to a premature downturn." A surplus as small'as the one forecast by Kennedy would rep* resent a big change from the 'indicated budget results for the current fiscal year which ends June 30. Kennedy said the current-year outlook is for spending of $894 billion, revenues of $824 billion and a deficit of $7 billion. Defending in advance bis proposed spending increases, Kennedy said ail new ideas for additional outlays were received in accord with "strict standards of urgency," He said that, in the name of economy, "many desirable new projects and activities are being deferred." COPS S/GHf SIGHT HAfo, TO BELIEVE It takes all kinds of sight* to make a policeman's night.' Like, for instance/ the deer Lake Charles city police-officers spotted running loose in the Oak Park boulevard area at 4:30 a.m. today. Since deer season is over, even inside city limits, officers called local game agent L. C. Andrus, who, police, reported, promised to look into the matter. V Sulphur Survey On Sidewalks At Schools Set SULPHUR (SpL) - The Sul. phur City council adopted a reste lution at a special meeting thui raornmg authorizing the consiilt* tag engineer Carnegie and Smith; to conduct a survey dealing with the necessity of building side* walks near all the schools within the city limits. Mayor Adias Saunier and commissioner Keith Lyons said they had received numerous requests and phone calls pointing out the need for such a program..The aim of the program is to protect chii* dren who must walk to school. The project has been one of the long-range items in the councils' program for the betterment of the community and the safety of its residents. Mayor Saunier said that engi« neers will begin the survey immediately and will present a comprehensive report to the city council as soon as it has been completed. The council will then present the report to the Sulphur plan* ning committee for its recom* mendations. c)ihm»ri?Tj «LJW» flW 1 3-WI South Lake Charles Little League Inc. annual meeting, election of officers at LaGrange Junior High School Friday, January 18th at 7:30 P.M.
