COURIER NEWS PAGEJTVB US Budget in Happy Situation, But the National Debt Isn't WASHINGTON (AP) — Suppose you figured you were going to take in 600 million dollars more than you'd have to pay out in the next 17i/£ months. What would you do with the extra money? Buy .a new TV .set? Entertain a chorus girl? dinner? Take your wife to Your government is in this happy •ituation. President Eisenhower's new budget looks toward the dun- try's being 200 million dollars ahead of the game come June 30. jff all goes well there'll be an ad- tlonal .400 millions of surplus in the following 12 months. Uncle Sam, however, is in no position to go on a spree. He's up to his ears in debt. So: down comes debt—to $273,800,000,000. Debt Free In 2041 If he can just keep up this rate of progress, say an average of three billion dollars a year, the mortgage will be paid off by the year 2044. . But there's also the little, matter of interst. It costs us taxpayers roughly seven billion dollars year. If you operated as the government does, you'd have a .pretty topsy-turvy way of life : If you earned $100 weekly, $64 would go for policemen, firemen Violence Reports Indicate All Hot Well on Red Farms By RICHARD R. KASISCHKE VIENNA Wl — Two Hungarian peasants sentenced for stabbing their Communist collective farm chairman and their village council chairman. . . . Czechoslovak peasants accused of killing a Communist farm agitator. . . . Polish peasants' strike ties up a collective farm. . . . Hungarian kulaks accused of sabotaging grain collections and new sowing operations. These and other press and radio reports show there is trouble on the farms of East European countries at a time when their Red rulers are calling for increased production and intensified collectivization in 1956. Hungary and Czechoslovakia appear to be having the most trouble. Their press continually inveighs against "saboteurs" and evil kulaks (rich farmers). In these two countries, especially, the governments are cracking the whip to step up collectivization. * Milder Policy Tha Polish government appears to have adopted a temporarily milder policy toward its peasants, apparently tile result of peasant resistance. A Polish newspaper recently criticized the fact that as many as 400 farmers were in Jail for "malevolent nonfulfillment of their delivery quotas" while twice as many more peasants were scheduled for trial' on similar charges. In Czechoslovakia the government has stepped up its drive against the independent farmers— denouncing even small holders as kulaks — and confiscating their lands for failing to fulfill crop delivery quotas. The Prague regime complains that the Czechoslovak countryside has been invaded by "mistaken notions" about "class peace" since the first Geneva conference. Rude Pravo, the Czech Communist party organ, reported a T/ 2 -year sentence given a Eisnice farmer for withholding crop deliveries. His property was confiscated and he lost his civil rights. He was accused of listening to the American-sponsored Radio Free Europe broadcasts "which promised him that the 'golden times' of rich farmers and industrial barons would return." Drive Launched . A collectivization drive has been launched in Hungary with the aim of speeding up the objective of socializing more than half the land by 1960. Hungarian agriculture at present is. perhaps one-third socialized. Following the. recent Russian pattern, the Hungarian government has sent swarms of Communist agitators to the country to enforce larger sowings and harder work. Some Hungarian . villages have been panicked by wildfire reports of food shortages which caused people to rush the stores for bread to hoard. Extra stocks were laid in and store hours changed to convince the pe'ople they wouldn't starve. BLANK SHOTS-She's taken 36,400 shots of whisky in seven years—and never even gotten a buzz out of them.
