While Taber declined to specify just-what items most likely would be singled out for cuts, he noted that the President's estimate of actual foreign aid outlays dining the year and his requests for funds to finance other project-, not vet ( authorized by law run well ov er I $5,000,000,000 (billion). | Not Enacted For example, he said, the President wants half a billion dollars, to finnnro nnivPrsnl rmlitnr\ training legislation, which Congress has "not 'enacted and which some of its top leadeis expect it to put aside for at least anothei year. Taber pointed out that while the Marshall plan for Euiopean lecovery contemplates a $6,800. 000,000 appropriation foi the f u s t 35 months, the budget says only $4,000,000,000 of that sum "will be spent during the 12 month, B a i t - ing July 1. The New Yorker termed even that "too much." And, Taber added, "the President's proposals for huge outlays, lor education, social welfaie and housing, just to mention a few, seem way out of line even if Congress does authorize these programs." $5 Billion Goal l Whatever the decision on his §5,000,000,000 goal. Tabes said he "wouldn't be satisfied w i t h anything less" than a cut of $4300 ,000,000. ^Republican leaders are determined to ram through an income tax reduction bill this year that may trim by more than $5,000,000, 000 t-he $44,477,000,000 in levenues estimated by Mr. Tinman 101 the next fiscal year. Although the new budget exceeds by nearly $2,000,000,000 the anticipated government outlay for the current fiscal year, Mr. *Tiu- man told Congress "it was tailored to "rigid standards of operating economy" and is necessary to cope vvith "the ieahtie.s ot our existing international - ' quirements " 40 Years of U.

Educational, teacher and patent blocs threw immediate support to the piogiam as "the most con- stiuctive proposal advanced for the improvement of public education" in state history. The program, sponsored by Senator Fred A Young of Lowville and Assemblyman Wheeler Mil- rnoe of Canastota, would: 1 --Double the existing ' minimum support level" for common school education--borne by the state and localities--to §200 for elementary and §260 for high school pupils. 2 --Require the state to pay at least half the minimum in all" districts, regardless- of wealth. (The state now pays more than half in t-uoiei cusiiicLb ana less man halt in the wealthier.) C --Increase the basis of the local c o n t r i b u t i o n from §265 to S3 per thousand on equalized real property valuation, with the state paying the difference undei '.Tie minimum. Died Last Year A similar Young-Melmoe bill died .in committee last year Governor Dewey has promised an increase of "substantial millions" to education but reliable sources have indicated it would not approach the $103,000,000 demand. The state contribution to education thi-, year will reach 8150,000,000. Other bills intioduced last night would. 1--Increase unemployment insurance weekly benefits"from S10- S21 to 515-S30 and provide for So, S4 and S3 p a y m e n t s foi as many dependants ~ --Reliev e towns of paying one- the cost of forest tire fighting and charge the Entire sum against the state. 3 --Deny the use of school buildings and grounds to groups advocating the overthrow of government and subversive groups considered by the superintendent of schools as promoters of religious and racial intolerance. Additional Aid Young and Milmoe, in a joint statement, said their education aid measure would guarantee addi- f i o n f i l aid to "fiscally dependent and tax limit cities . . by freezing tax lates for local school support at the present level " Then- S200-S260 minimum support level would affect districts with more t h a n three teachers, but the bill also would piovide increased aid to smaller districts and greater allowances for night and summer schools, adult education and special classes in all districts.

Graham, the president's personal physician, had testified previously that he got hurriedly o'ut of the wheat market after the president lashed out on .Oct. ~6 against "gamblers" in grain. He got out. he said, except for one small purchase, but continued to deal in cotton until Dec. 18. Cotton A Commodity The youthful army officer said he didn't know cotton was re» garded as a commodity and had thought he vvas correct when he said a public statement that he had gotten out of the commodity markets. * Graham referred to a statement he issued when it was first dlS; closed that he had been trading in, commodities. Graham said President Truman, did not know he was in the market until lists assembled by Secretary of Agriculture Anderson, disclosed his name. He added that hre"never got any trading advice from anyone except his broker. Graham, who previously said ihe had "lost his socks" in 'exchange trading, presented a statement showing that he had made a profit of 56,16526 in commodities. But he said he lost Sll.012.86 in stocfc trading and so had a net loss of $4,847.61. Graham's original public story was that after Mr. Truman's blast at commodity "gamblers," he asked his broker if he .had any commodities and immediately ordered them sold. This account was challenged by Harold E. Stassen, aspirant for the Republican presidential nomination, who said Graham did not get out of the market until after Stassen inquired whether any White House personnel vvas engaging in such trading. In a prepared statement he read to the committee today, Graham said that he "assumed that the criticism the president made was of the buying of wheat "or grain and I thought of that as commodities." "I did not think he criticized buying of cotton, for instance, and S. M. Warmsr of Clinton. S.

It is time." He timed the start of the fast exactly with his watch. He then rinsed his mouth with water and held a brief prayei service for his assembled friends and others, reading selections from the Mohammedan Koran, the Christian Bible and the Hindu Vedas or 10- Hgious tenets. He asked the people, including the Hindu, Sikh and Moslem delegations, to leave him then, and he went indoors to follow his normal routine of reading mail, dictating messages to his followers and closely studying current events in newspapers. In undertaking his fast, Gandhi said it "will end when and if I am satisfied that there is a reunion of the hearts of all communities, brought about without any outside pressure, but from an awakened sense of duty." Noting the mention of death in Gandhi's public announcement of his plan, some diciples said they feared that, should he die, India's non-Moslems would blame the Moslems and avenge him with a terrible slaughter.

Trading Is Legal Speculative trading in commodities is entirely legal, but Mr. Truman contended that "gambling" vvas running up the price of grain. Some grain exchange men dispute that contention. A compilation submitted by Graham showed that he had sold 100 bales of July cotton on Dec, 18. Another notation said "closed out against pur 11-29," indicating that the purchase in question may have been made on Nov. 29. Graham conceded today that his broker, Harry Brisker, had acted under his orders in making purchases. He said he (Graham), assumed "full responsibility" for the trading that had been done. Previously he had said he told the broker to make purchases and sales when the latter thought advisable and did not know of all of his holdings. Graham said that, against the advice of his broker, he had bought stocks which later dropped in price. He did not specify which stocks, but said he bought some- shares in a Kansas City concern, first through a broker in Kansas City. He said he then switched his operations to the Washington broker.
