r^:-^*^^ President's Proposed Expenditures Would Top Highest Wartime Budget (Continued from Page One) cut taxes when the government ledger is in the red. Nowhere did Kennedy name the effective date in 1963 on which he based his projection of a tax cut's effect on revenues. He held back most details for a special message to Congress later this month. Declaring false economy would jeopardize the national interest, Kennedy recommended increased spending for defense and space efforts. For all other programs combined, his recommendations were slightly under the current total. Individually, some were higher- such as health, labor, welfare, education, housing and community development. Others—farm, postal and shipping subsidy programs, for instance—were lower, and the decreases more than offset the increases. Proposed over-all defense spending of S55.4 billion would absorb. 55 cens of every ax e ne sorb 55 cents of every tax dollar, but Kennedy asserted: "There is no discount price-on defense." The total, up $2.4 billion from the current year, includes $51 billion for the Pentagon, $2.8 billion for the Atomic Energy Commission, $1.45 billion for military aid abroad and the balance for stockpiling, selective service and the like. If Congress approves, expenditures, aimed at landing a man on the moon in this decade and exploring faraway planets will go up 75 per cent, from $2.4 to $4.2 billion. Pending a separate message, Kennedy withheld details on his education program. He didn't tell whether he again will recommend federal aid for school construction and teacher salaries, a proposal spiked on the religious issue in the last Congress. But he said spending should rise $165 million to $1.5 billion and he requested a doubling to $3 billion of appropriations for immediate and future use. In another controversial field, he suggested total spending of $3.75 billion on foreign aid. This would include $2.3 billion for economic assistance and represent a net decrease of $100 million in the entire program. He asked for an appropriation, however, of $4.9 billion. That's just about what he asked for a year ago. Congress cut out a billion. For all functions of government, Kennedy requested new appropriations of $06.5 billion. These are the figures Congress debates. Appropriations control much of current spending, although part of the nearly $W billion Kennedy proposes to spend has been previously authorized. The President faces opposition to both his spending and tax plans because of the debt they will create. Last year Congress raised the temporary limit to $308 billion, providing for a drop to $305 billion next April 1, to $300 billion on June 25 and back to the perma- nent ceiling of $285 billion on July 1. To cope with conditions as he sees them, Kennedy urged a prompt extension of the ^OS-billion limit through June 30. He said he would seek a further increase for the next 12 months. The present outlook, he said, is for a debt of $315.6 billion at the end of that period. He postponed making a specific request, however, until a more reliable estimate is possible. Before getting into the next fiscal year, Kennedy called on Congress to appropriate another $3.9 billion for the current year. He said that much is needed to pay for legislation passed in 1962 without adequate financing. For 1963-64 spending, he made these additional recommendations in what is known as the administrative budget: Agriculture—$5.7 billion, down $1.1 billion. Natural resources—$2.5 billion, up a billion. Housing and community development—$300 million, down $200 million. Health, labor and welfare—$5.5 billion, up $700 million.
