Cn ; This wns for Interest on the national debt and veterans* services and benefits.. All other government expenditures In fiscal 1054, Truman said, would come to $10,300,000,000, about thfl same as In the current fiscal year and $1,300,000,000 more than in fiscal 1552. Tills amounted to 13 p*r cent of Ihe total.

And EISENHOWER (Continued from Page 1) If his advice was requested. II career In government goes ha and •ways Truman acknowledged nt the outset of his message today that circumstances made this one subject to even more 'ilinn usual revision. "The President-elect," Truman said, "will be entirely free to viro- pose changes." But for thts spending blueprint he shouldered the entire responsibility. Besides the estimate that federal expenditures would climb to $78,600,000,000 in the coming fiscal year, the highlights of the budget message were: 1. The deficit next June 30, at the end of tfils 1953 fiscal year will be about $5,900,000,000, instead of the previously estimated 10 billions. This reflects a slow down In rearmament spending. But by June 30, 1954, at Ihe end of fiscal 1354, Truman estimated, the deficit will be $9,900,000,000, reflecting peak defense buildup spending during the year. At the end of fiscal 1952, last June 30, the year's deficit was four billion dollar's. The President Urns predicted a deficit increase in ihe current fiscal year of nearly two billion dollars and another four billion dollar jump in the next fiscal year, 2. The public debt, which stood at 259 billion dollars at the end of fiscal 1952, will Increase to 2G4 billions by next June 30, and to 274 billions by June 30, 1954. The legal limit on the public debt of 215 billions can be changed by Congress if it wishes. 3. The government will" need 572,900,000,000 In new appropriations from Congress In fiscal 1954. This compares to $80,800,000,000 Truman requested last January. ' and to $92,90,000,000 requested the year before, in the fiscal 1952 bud• get message, 4. The government's Income (tax receipts except for trust funds) will be about the same this fiscal year and in fiscal 1954 — $68,697,000.000 In fiscal 1953 and $&8,665,000,000 In fiscal 1954. Revenue In both years would thus be approximately 6'/ a billions above receipts in fiscal 1952 . This budget does not take effect until July 1, and runs for Ihe 12 months after that. Law requires the President to submit his budget nearly six months In advance of Its effective start. y e; u rs .
