Wj—President Truman got a mixer! ami uncertain reception on Capitol Hill today for his new proposal to (1) blanket 6,000,000; more workers under employment Insurance and (2) pay bigger benefits to the Jobless for a longer time. Mr. Truman cited an average of nearly 4.500,000 unemployed this year and said prompt action Is urgent. . .

Wj-The government, expecting to overspend Its Income by more than »s,000,000,000 in the next 15'months, will start borrowing new money next week to make ends meet. That will add considerably to the government's debts, which already totnl nearly »25S,000,000,000. The first step In the new borrowing program, as announced by Secretary of the Treasury Snyder last night, will take this form: The treasury owes about $900000000 in 91-day bills falling due April 13, It will sell tl,000,000,000 In new 91-day bilk that day to pay off the clue debt and leave it 1100,000000 extra cash. Except in scale, the transaction will be the same as that of a man who has a $900 note falling due at the bank next Thursday and "takes care of it" by giving a new note for $1,000. Has Chance at flo« Million The treasury will have a chance (o pick up an extra $100,000,000 in each of the two succeeding weeks by Identical transactions, for it h»s $900.000,000 issues of 91-daybllls also railing due April 20 and 27. Next week will mark the first time in seven months that the treasury has sought to borrow extra funds In the public money market, made up mostly of banks.. Since last September, it ha* be«n paying off securities falling due by felling practically identical amounts of new securities. It has not, however, been heavily pressed for cash In that time, partly because the government has run only about S1.3TO.OOO.OOO In the red since the 1950 fiscal year started last July 1. It Could Stall Also, It could stall along by using cash on hand, borrowing from government trust funds (particularly the social security fund), and looking ; forward to heavy Income tax collections in March. As it turned out, income tax receipts^ proved disappointingly low, raising a. threat that the .government income may fail short of.ex- penses by more than, the $5,533,000,000. total President Truman figured for this fiscal year. ;.;,• Worse still, nearly. $4.200,000,000' of that deficit will be piled up between now and the fiscal year's end June 30, and the President has estimated that income will fall $5- ward with hose while waiting for garage side of Mr. Turner's bulld- The building housing the mat- County-Wide Natural Gas Meeting Set A county-wide meeting to discuss the advent of natural gaH to Mississippi County has He«n called by th« Ma> nila LioiiB Club for Tuesday night. ——; + Principal speaker will be Arkansas Public Service Commission chairman Charles wine of Little Rock.
