(AP Wirephoto Chart). Ike's Program Aimed to Nip Inflation Trend By FRANK CORMIKR WASHINGTON (AP) - President Eisenhower today sent Congress a 77-billinn dollar budget forecasting a spending cut of nearly four billion dollars and a precarious surplus of 70 millions. He called it "a confident budget that assumes a surge of prosperity. Eisenhower said the budget aims to'reslrain inflationary forces that cheapen our money and erode our savings. He also said it paves the way for a tax cut "in the reasonably foreseeable future." No tax cuts were proposed for Hie present. In fact, to help achiev the first balanced budget In three years, the President is asking Congress to boost postal rates and gasoline taxes. He also wants some lax loopholes plugged.

Frondizi came to office with the reputation of a nationalist and a leftist, who favored government operation of oil, seel, mining, transportation and power. But he found a nation near economic ruin from the years of Peron's dictatorship, and realized the only way out was to encourage foreign investment and foreign aid in the development of a basically wealthy country. He signed one billion dollars in development contracts with foreign oil companies, and negotiated j vice, supported Frondizi for election.
