PAGE FOU* BLYTHEV1LLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, J958 U. S. Budget So Complicated It Can Fool All but Experts By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP) — The federal budget is such a complicated affair by now that perhaps President Eisenhower should have chosen Friday the 13th to unveil it instead of waiting till Monday. Carefully and conscienciously as it may have been drawn up. the budget has become so unwieldy over the years that it can fool all but the most expert. The most honest ol budgets is so tricky by now that it's possible to say: 1. After 20 years of social security and similar programs, the Treasury shows a cash balance now only when the regular budget calls for a deficit of two or three billion dollars. No deficit in the regular budget and the Treasury will have a cash surplus. Could "Be More 3 The actual sums the Treasury Will spend In the next fiscal year could be considerably more than what Congress is being asked by Marilyn Picks 1st Production HOIiYWOOD (.<P) — Playwright Terrence Rattigan's "The Sleping Prince" will be the first independent production of Marilyn Monroe Productions, Inc. Marilyn will star in the part played by Vivien Leigh on the London stage. The picture may be filmed in England next summer or fall. Miss Monroe's corporation recently signed a seven-year contract with 30th Century-Fox. Her first picture for them, "Bus Stop," will be made before "The Sleeping Prince." the President to authorize .at this session — and the sums could be less, and all legal. 3. The sums the Congress finally will appropriate also may be more c.r may be less than the Treasury will actually spend in the next fiscal year. Authorization isn't the same as appropriation, and appropriation isn't the same as spending — although sooner or later the government always gets around to spending plenty. The reasons for these seeming are these: The cash budget covers all the income the Treasury collects from the public and all the payments it actually makes to the public This income includes money which isn't counted in the regular budget the President has prepared for the Congress. This money chiefly consists of receipts the Treasury collects for social security and other trust funds. It isn't counted as government income, but the. Treasury can and does use it in its daily dealings just like any other cash receipt. Excess Receipts For years now most of these trust funds have been collecting more from the public than they pay out in benefits. For their excess receipts the trust funds get special government securities. The interest on these securities bring in a billion dollars or more a year to the funds — although the actual Wells-2"to 16" Irrigation - Industrial - Municipal - Domestic WATER is our BUSINESS We Drill For It Pump It Soften It Filter It Cool |t Irrigate With It .

The interest payment, however, like all the other billions the Treasury pays out on the federal debt is counted as an expense item in the regular budget. In short, collections on behalf of the trust funds aren't counted as income, although '.reated as cash by the Tr,eesury, while interest payments to the funds are counted as expenditures, even if the funds may not see the cash. In this way, ,li lnUk« ami Uie Treasury! outgo can be in balance even if the ordinary budget fsn't. The difference between actual spending and the authorization and appropriation of funds by Congress can be just as confusing The various departments of government often have large carry-overs of sums appropriated in former years for their use. That is how spending for foreign aid could be maintained at the old rate this year although Congress cut down on the appropriation for it at the last session. Guard to Stay At Nylon Plant PENSACOLA, Pla., Jan. 13 (£>)— National Guardsmen probably will remain two or three days more at the nylon plant of the Chemstraiid Corp., Sheriff R.
