The President's revenue estimate 'were based on the assumption tha Individual incomes would remain a the $215 1 000,000,000-a-year level re fleeted in the' October-December period. ' Even that income rate caused th president's new figure on revemi for fiscal 1948 to go. $1,661,000,00 over the forecast he had made fiv months earlier.
