(UP) — President Hcosevcll reported to congress today that he had clamped brake^ on "\aend)ng iin an un- c i uesi successful effort to balance budgets dislocated by business recession. , Mr. Roosevelt estimated the net deficit for this (1938) fiscal year at $1,088.129.000 and for the 1939 fiscal year at $949.690,000— with the prospect lhat each actually will be greater.

Small Part of WPA Project Cost Recommends Changes He believes business will improve some but probably not regain its 1937 levels in 1938. He based his budget on existing tax rates but o-ecommended changes to relieve hardships. "I hope that there may be enacted at an early date," he informed congress, "such amendments to the revenue law as will maintain the revenue producing power of the present tax structure while correcting, at the same time, existing proven inequities." He asked for a record breaking peace time national defense appropriation of more than one billion dollars and another one billion for work relief in the next fiscal year. He said the national debt would rise to $38,523,200,000 by June 30, 1939. .--Ifi attfami't'irig''' failure to balance the budget to business recession Mr. Roosevelt emphasized that the 1938 and 1939 deficit figures fire tentative and subject to considerable expansion with consequent further increase of the national debt because: Further Debt Increase Possible 1.
