City Manager Kendall H. Lee has ordered the police department to close down any lot which opens for business Sunday if the lot operator has not applied for a license. Parking lot licenses should have been renewed Jan. 1. Mr. Lee ordered the police action for this Sunday because most of the lots are closed for the winter season and operate only on Sundays. Mr. Lee also ordered the department to close any lot not licensed by April 14 until a license is issued for the operation. The police chief and the building inspector must certify that the lots comply with an ordinance regulating parking lots before a license is issued. , Cit Council adopted the ordinance last spring. Many operators refused to comply with the ordinance. Several were fined in Municipal Court for violating the law. The ordinance requires adequate safety measures, posting of prices, and sets up licensing require- ; rpents Suit .Names 2 Shore Eg Firms, Men TRENTON CP - The trustee of two bankrupt wholesale egg firms yesterday filed a s3.l33.nB FerU eral Court suit against two Shore firms and two Shore men.

In separate actions, the Senate and the House yesterday further t upset the President's program for I a balanced budget for the fiscal year starting July 1. The House, by roll-call vote of 262-134. passed a 297 million dollar four-year airport aid program which exceeded the President's recommendations by 97 millions. Concurrently, the Senate voted to charge against the new budget $1,375,000,000 of new United States subscriptions to the International Monetary Fund. The President had counted on charging this item against this year's budget, already heavily unbalanced, instead of against the 10 ledger. By counting on higher gasoline taxes, postal rates, and other tax gains which Congress appears to be shunning, Mr. Eisenhower had submitted a I960 budget precariously balanced at about 77 billion dollars He has repeatedly urged Congress to keep spending down to that figure.
