It was an announcement by both have more money, their governments on how much they expect to spend next year. There was the one lesson to be learned, above all others, from the announcements. If the two countries could learn to trust each other and stop their fantastic armaments race — running into billions upon billions of dollars — people in both countries could live better because their taxes would go down and they'd By these Same Day a coincidence of history things happened on the same day.

A survey by ttw Associated Press revealed a variety of strong opinions on the subject. The 1057 Legislature passed two daylight savings bills. One would have authorized governing bodies of counties in the Twin Cities area and this, city of Duluth to adopt daylight saving t'me. The other, .1 statewide measure, was enacted after careful maneuvering by its supporters. Enough legislators from the rural areas were persuaded to go along to adopt fast time for a two year period. Since then rural opposition has stiffened and several major farm organizations have adopted strong resolutions of opposition. The, time fight pits business men operating on a national scale, radio and television stations and sports-loving city dwellers against farmers, drive-in theaters and parents of small children. Business men said failure of Minnesota to go on daylight saving time would handicap them in their dealings with business centers in the east, where daylight time is used. Radio and television the country's governmental units, | from the smallest local districts up. Included are figures for the nation's industry, transport and trade, all run by the government. Eisenhower's 77-billion figure for next year is about 3 billions less than the American government is expected to shovel out this year. He intends to trim expenses in a number of places to bring the spending down.

Real Amateur 'She never knew what a real amateur she was — an honorable designation in any way of life. "She failed because she had no gift for self-criticiom." In a prepublication condensation of her memoirs appearing in the January issue of the Ladies' Home Journal, the former Metropolitan Opera star says hei three years as Miss Truman's adviser cost her stature "in the eyes of the musical world for ever having my name connected with such a musical aspirant." Miss Traubel wrote that she consented to the adviser role in 1948 when Miss Truman asked for help. Her voice then was "inexperienced and rather bad," Missi Traubel says, adding: "My first, greatest and unconquerable difficulty with (Margaret's) voice was simply keeping her on key. "There simply was not enough of everything — or of anything — to make her really a concert or light-opera singer."

The reason: arguments say they'll spend in rubles the equivalent of almost 177 billion dollars at the official rate of exchange. That looks like 100 billions more the Russian government is spending. But the figures are misleading, and not only because the ruble is not considered here to be worth its official exchange value. All Units Eisenhower's total was for the federal government's expenses, and did not, of course, include the money being spent for all purposes by states, counties and city governments or by private enterprise on expansion or production not connected with the government. . on what should and shouldn't be cut, and new expenses cropping up. But one place Eisenhower said wouldn't be cut is the defense program. That's going up. Eisenhower said so. He didn't say how much up. But this year defense spending is hitting more than 40 billions out of the total of 80 billions to be spent. The Soviets are far less frank about their defense spending.
