THURSDAY, JANUARY 5, 1956 " -BfcYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE-F1V1 Balanced Budget Forecast by Ike (Continued from Page 1) Fla., from his heart attack, Eisenhower declared: "I expect the budget to be In balance during the fiscal year ending June 30, 1056. "I shall propose a balanced budget for the next fiscal year ending June 30, 1957." He said present "burdensome" taxes "should be reduced when we prudently can." He added, 'however, "under conditions of high peacetime prosperity, such as now exist, we can never justify going further into debt to give ^ourseb(es a tax cut at the expense of ojir children." Eisenhower, began his message with a review of progress he said had been made in the three years since he took office. In summary, he said: Nation at Peace - "Our country is at peace. Our security posture commands respect. A spiritual vigor marks our national life. Our economy, approaching t h t 400-billion-dollar mark, is at an unparalleled level of prosperity.. The national income is more widely and fairly distributed than ever before. The number of Americans at work has reached an all-time high. As a people, we are achieving even higher standards of living—earn ing more, producing more, consuming more, building more and investing more than ever before. "Virtually all sectors of our society are sharing in these good times. Our farm families, if we act wisely, imaginatively and promptly to strengthen our present farm programs, can also look forward to sharing equitably in the prosperity they have helped to create. " Korea ended 2'/2 years ago. The collective security system has been powerfully strengthened. Our defenses have been reinforced at Sharply reduced costs Programs to expand world trade and to harness the atom for the betterment of' mankind have been carried forward. Our economy has been freed from governmenta wage and price controls. Inflation has been halted; the cost of living stabilized. 3 "Government spending has been cut by more than ten billion dollars. Nearly three hundred thousand positions have been eliminatec from the federal payroll. Taxes have been substantially reduced A balanced budget is in prospect Social Security has been extendet to ten million more Americans and unemployment insurance to four million more. Unprecedented ad vances in civil rights have been made. The long-standing and deep seated problems of agriculture have been forthrlghtly attacked. ^ Cites Record "This record 'of progress has been accomplished with a self-im posed caution against unnecessary and unwise interference in the pri vate affairs of our people, of their communities and of the several states. "If we of the 'executive and legislative branches, keeping this caution ever in mind, address ourselves to the business of the year before us—and .to the unfinished business of last year—with resolution, the outlook is bright with promise." The President said many measures "of great national importance," which he recommended to Congress last year should be adopted now. He mentioned school and highway construction, health and immigration matters, water resources, foreign trade policy, amendment of the Taft-Hartley labor relations law, extension of the wage-hour .law to additional groups, occupational safety legislation, and construction of an atomic-powered merchant ship to tour the world as an illustration of atomic energy's peacetime uses. Turning to world affairs, Eisenhower said the Geneva conference of foreign ministers last October "demonstrated conclusively that the Soviet leaders are not yet willing to create the indispensable conditions for a secure and lasting peace." Nonetheless, Eisenhower, said, the East-West conflict "has taken on a new complexion." Emphasis Shifted "Communist tactics against the free nations have shifted in emphasis from reliance on violence and the threat of violence to reliance on division, enticement and duplicity," he continued. Eisenhower said the free world has scored "major. gains in col lective security during the last year — such as the addition of Germany to the 1 North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the developing of mutual security pacts in Southeast Asia and the Middle East. Moreover—he cald, tho Unit States has laid its disarmamenl program "squarely before the bar of world opinion" and will persevere in seeking a general reduction of armaments "under effective inspection and control." Much remains to be done in the coming year, he said, and added: "In Asia we shall continue f o give help to nations struggling to maintain their freedom againsi the threat of Communist coercion or subversion. In Europe we shal endeavor to increase not only the military strength of the North Atlantic Alliance but also its politica cohesion and unity of purpose. We shall give such assistance as it is feasible to the . recently renewec effort of Western European nations to achieve a greater measure o: integration, such as in the field o peaceful uses of atomic energy "In the Near East we shall spare no effort in seeking to promote a fair solution of the tragic dispute between the Arab states and Israel all of whom we want as our friends. . . In Latin America we shall continue to cooperate vigorously in trade and other measures designed to .assist economic progress in the area." Eisenhower urged Congress to approve United States membership in the Organization for Trade Cooperation and to foster foreign trade by further simplification and improvement of the U. S. customs system. Then he urged Congress "to sustain and fortify" the mutual security program of foreign aid in order to fight "poverty and unrest." Eisenhower also proposed a "substantial" increase, to be spelled out later, in appropriations for the U. S. Information Agency in order to increase international "understanding of the truth about America." On the home front, Eisenhower as expected asked Congress again to extend the Defense Production Act. He also renewed a request for legislation giving better medical care to dependents of those in the armed services, together with a "more equitable" survivors' benefit program. He said other, recommendations Include career incentives for medical and dental officers and nurses and increases in the proportion of regular officers, will be submitted later. The President touched on these other main topics: RESOURCES CONSERVATION — He said a "comprehensive" water conservation program will be submitted to Congress at this session, and he asked speedy action on such programs as the Colorado River storage project and the Prying Pan-Arkansas project DISASTER ASSISTANCE — He said an experimental program of federal flood damage insurance should be started, and that he would offer detailed recommendations later. * • » AREA REDEVELOPMENT —, He said he will submit later a program of federal technical and loan assistance to communities for redeveloping chronic unemployment areas.

"An Open Mind" Rep. Richards (D-SC). chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told, an interviewer the administration's plan to seek $4,900 000,000 in foreign aid appropria tions—compared with the $2,700,000,000 Congress voted last year- will get "full consideration." "I'm seeping an open mind," he said, "but I want to see the basis, the grounds for which they want this increase."
