GREGORY ' (United Pr*ss Staff Correspondent) " WASHINGTON, July II. lUP) •'The federal government took In . about 58,000,000,000 more from the American public In the last 13 .months than it paid out.

It paid out in cash transactions only about $37,000,000,000 during the same period. ( These figures ore far different than the budget accounting which show (hat receipts and expenditures nearly balance. Here is a comparison of the figures: Budget basis Cash basis ' Income $43,259,000.000 $44,600,000,000 Outgo 42,505,000,000 36,686,000,000 - Excess of Income 754,000,000 7.914,000,000 ...'This striking difference Is due principally to two factors: under the budget accounting, not all tax collections are counted ,as income and secondly, the budget accounting reports as expenditures somo future items that haven't actually been paid out In rash.
