"As a matter of fact, they (the Cubans) interrogated me as if I was working against them," Ruby said. "To be perfectly honest, I was just trying to get out of the beer business."

The budget would carve $1.3 billion and 27,000 civilians from the Defense Department. He proposed a $54-billion national defense effort, which includes along with actual military expenditures such costs as civil defense, stockpiling and atomic weapons procurement. Other cuts would hit the Agriculture Department, the Post Office, the Atomic Energy Commission, and the Veterans Administration. The new fiscal blueprint also would thin slightly the over-all jobholders, sell creased from $311.8 billion to $317 billion, he estimated. Nevertheless it is a "compassionate" budget, Johnson said, providing history's heaviest spending for "our nation's most important resource — its people." He asked more than $1 billion for a package attack on the roots of misery. Johnson told the legislators he was guided, in this first major economic task of his presidency, by the principle that "an austere budget need not be and should not be a standstill budget," and explained: "When vigorous pruning of old programs and procedures releases the funds to meet new challenges and opportunities, economy becomes the companion of progress. . . "A government that is strong, a government that is solvent, a government that is compassionate is the kind of government that endures."

Spurred by tax cuts, national output this year will soar by nearly $40 billion to a surprising record total of about $623 billion, the President predicted, generating higher revenues de« spite the lower tax rates. So federal income' will climb by $4.6 billion hi the coming fiscal year to $93 billion, while government spending . is squeezed down by $500 million to $97.9 billion for the second budget cut in nine years. But Johnson added a warning — an implied hint of business recession and a bigger deficit if taxes are not cut — to jog the congressional champions ot fiscal caution who have delayed action for more than a year on the $11-billion tax reduction bill. Johnson proposed to cut 800 employes from the foreign aid program, a move certain to please the many aid critics in Congress, and to trim another 1,400,.from the Agriculture, fat partment, whose budget would be sliced by $1.3 billion to a total of $5.1 billion. For new foreign aid funds Johnson asked $3,4 billion—the lowest request since the Marshall Plan got under way in 1948 and a whopping $1.5 billion below what President John F. Kennedy sought a year a$o. But much of the savings in money and manpower would be diverted into .welfare, 'labor, education, job retraining?-youth assistance, and other 'arms of the antlpovertyj offensive. The much-publicized Johnson ax-work on federal employment wound up as a net cut of only 1,200 jobs, or a shaving of less S.e JOHNSON P«gt U Driver Education Registration Set Pre-registratlon for the annual Driver Education course at Del Rio High School will be held at 4 p.m. Thursday in the high school auditorium, R. C. King, principal, announced today. Traffic safety and driver training has been offered for several years in the Del Rio Independent School District and it has cultivated above average traffic safety among the teenagers that have taken Uie course. Among those completing the program last year, only five out of 152 have been involved in accidents. This is u 3 per cent record which is eon siderubly below the national average of 12 per cent. These figures arc based on the fact that on the average one out of four people throughout the nation are involved in an accident annually. Driver-trained arc involved in on average of one out of eight. Locally the ratio is one out of 30. Insurance companies see the instruction so beneficial toward better safety that they grant a 10 per cent discount for male drivers under 25 from their surcharge on auto Insurance premiums. As was the cast last y«*f. the course will be offered on a tuition basis for partial Coverage of offering driver education with the difference being made up by the school district. Instructors C. M.
