(EDITOR'S NOTE - The Associated Press has just completed a survey in which average newspaper readers across the country were asked what interested or troubled them moat about the United States and the world today. A series Of typical readers' questions were selected from the poll. This article about government income and debt is one of several dealing those questions.) with '•i By JOSEPH R. WASHINGTON (AP reader asks : "Where does the government get its money? How is ;it spent? Does the growing deb't mean we can go broke?" the harried American taxpayer — from the unskilled laborer to the corporation president — is the largest single source of Uncle Sam's money. And .so long as the taxpayer ponies up, the government won't go broke. 'It all goes back to the ability to tax," one government official explains. "If the people are willing to pay taxes to pay expenses ordinance the debt, the government won't go broke." 5 * * * ;Soitte of the administration's political opponents contend the nation is already near bankruptcy because of its national debt which now exceeds $322 billion. But economists note that the debt — as a percentage of ttie nation's total wealth — has The argument is a perennial 1 which begun July 1 : actually years. decreased fa recent Today In History By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ',Today is Tuesday, July 12th, the 193rd day of 1966. There are 172 days left in the year, today's highlight in history: -On this date in 1864, President Abraham Lincoln, within range of Confederate sharpshooters, watched advancing Southern forces on the outskirts of Washington. tOn this date: •In 1804, Alexander Hamilton, Revolutionary War leader and secretary of the Treasury, died of a bullet wound inflicted in a,; duel the day before. -In 1817, American naturalist aid author Henry Thoreau was born. :in 1919, the World War I Allies lifted their blockade of Germany. -In 1941, Britain and the Soviet Union signed a mutual assistance treaty. ;In 1943, the U.S. Navy defeated the Japanese in the second battle of Kula Gulf. yTen years ago — The Soviet Union agreed to limitations on conventional armed forces proposed by the United States, Britain and France as a first step toward world disarmament.

"'One year ago - The French atomic energy commission said It had developed a new ne- clear explosive device. one and no end is in sight. It's no secret, however, that man' agement of the national debt is now a major question, and one result of a growing debt is ever- increasing interest costs to finance it. ¥ * * The debt is nothing more than money owed by the government r- those savings bonds in your safe deposit box, for example, comprise almost $50 billion of the total debt — and interest must be paid on it. F6r the fiscal year which ended June 30, the administration expected to spend slightly more than $12 billion just for interest and President Johnson has requested Congress to appropriate $12.9 billion for the next fiscal year. The government creates more debt when it spends more money than it collects. Although it las had a debt since its found- rig, debt management wasn't a i major question until this cen- ury. But getting back to the tax- )ayer, President Johnson's judget for the fiscal year which >egins July 1 calls on John .Q D ub]ic to contribute through his ncome tax 39 cents of every dollar the government collects. * * * Corporations will pay another 24 cents and excise taxes on such things as automobiles, alcoholic beverages and gasoline will provide another 9 cents. Employment taxes — such as Social Security, railroad retirement and unemployment insurance — will add another 17 cents while the remaining 11 cents will come from such sources as customs collections, estate and gift taxes and veterans life insurance premiums. In present day America, government spending permeates almost every phase of life. Here's how President Johnson plans splitting up the government's dollar during the year Defense including the war in Viet Nam — 41 cents; trust fund payments such as Social Security and federal aid to highways — 26 cents; interest charges .— 7 cents; veterans — 4 cents; space programs — 4 cents; international affairs including fbrtign aid — 3 cents, agriculture — 2 cents and all other 13 cents. Eliminating the trust figures — where money is earmarked for a specific purpose even before It's Johnson anticipated the government would spend $112.8 billion during the next fiscal yer bul collect only $111 billion. That means a deficit of $1.8 billion which would" be provided by borrowing money and . increasing the national debt.
