His estimate for the coming fis. cal year forecast an increase of about V/i billion dollars in individual tax returns. But his estimate for corporation tax returns was unchanged.

Mercury. 1/U-M-fe, tion, getting rid or present surplus crops owned- by. the government and abetting conservation as a major home front program. $400 Million He said the soil bank plan would cost 400 million dollars the first year. But he forecast a drop of 12 million dollars in over-all agriculture spending, due to a decline of 485 million dollars in crop price support costs. In part, this was attributable to a forecast that the government would realize much more from disposal of its surpluses. ' • Elsenhower proposed to spend 150 million, dollars next year to help the states build new schools. He called for a quick start on his 10-year program to build 40,000 miles of nignwnyj, but moignea only a 54-million-dollar increase to highway building. That seemed to indicate he contemplated that' the cost of any expanded roads program would be met by higher taxes. He asked for 58 million dollars to expand the State Department's diplomatic and consular services, and increase U. S. Information Service work abroad. New foreign aid appropriations amounting to $4,860,000,000 were asked in orde; to refill the pipeline of foreign aid funds with which to contract for.items to be delivered months or years hence. The budget. proposed an lion-dollar increase in spending on veterans services, to a total of $4,879,000,000. Any major revisions of veterans services or benefits should await the report of a special commission due late this year, Eisenhower said. Hike Postal Charges Eisenhower asked Congress to increase postal charges by enough to bring in 350 million dollars additional money In fiscal 1957, but he did not specify what increases he had in mind. His budget counted this 350 million dollars as a decline in'government costs. If Congress should not increase postal fees as requested, most of the projected 435-millIon-dollar surplus for the year would vanish. The farmer would benefit from the one small tax cut — a proposal to refund to farmers the two- cent federal tax on gasoline used In farm operations. This, he said, wculd cost the government an estimated 60 million dollars next year. He proposed to increase spending on atomic energy development — including peaceful applications — by 230 million dollars, to a record of nearly two billion. He renewed his plea to Congress to authorize a nuclear powered vessel to tour the world as an "atoms for peace" exhibit. He said Secretary of Welfare Folsom is working out a plan under which insurance companies would pool risfcs to "extend and improve" health insurance for the public. If this is not successful, he said, federal underwriting of health insurance should be reconsidered. Eisenhower asked for money to start work on three steam electric Uie Te; , Valley Authority grid, "so that work may begin promptly." This by-passed, and perhaps dropped, -his earlier proposal to finance such projects by sale of revenue bonds, in favor of a return to direct federal financing. Speaking of international affairs, Eisenhower reiterated that this country seeks a just and durable peace, and he voiced regret "that the Soviet leaders have not as yet given any tangible evidence of an intention to agree upon a plan of disarmament that can be verified by adequate inspection." Ontil they do so, he said, "we must follow the course reflected in this budget of steadily strengthening the defense of the United States and its allies."
