(AP Wirephoto Map). ; BUDGET (Continued from Page l> will advance nearly 20 billions to 470 billions. The President disclosed that in the current fiscal year, which ends Juno 30, the government's finances will be even deeper in the red than had been predicted. He said recession-hit revenues will fall $12,871,000,000 short of matching indicatd spending of $80,871,000,000, Whooping Deficit He said this whopping deficit— the biggest ever in peacetime-will make necessary another request to Congress for an increase in the legal ceiling on the national debt. For fiscal 1960, Eisenhower forecast revenues of $77,100,000,000- a rise of nearly nine billion swelled to near-record levels by "a rapidly advancing economy." By the President's calculations, present revenue laws alone wouldn't produce a balanced budg- suit trial here even before it got started.

Eisenhower proposed raising 350 millions by again boosting postal rates, which went up only last August. He will submit details on this and other revenue proposals later. The federal gasoline tax would be hiked to 4% cents a gallon, from the present 3 cents. The add- ad revenue— more than 600 million dollars the first year— would go into a special trust fund to finance roadbuilding. Eisenhower said the trust tod ta ft «., d g bigger debt.

Security aspects of the atomic energy program account for an additional $2,745,000,000 — up 115 millions. Defense stockpiling and foreign military aid make up the remainder of the security expenditures. Incidentally, the budget assumes extension of the one-year suspension of U.S. nuclear tests which began last Oct. 31. No money is provided for weapons tests in fiscal 1960. Both the Army and the Navy would spend a bit more under the new budget. Air Force outlays, however, would be reduced by 318 million dollars, to $18,675,000,000. The Navy would spend $11,596,000,000 and the Army $9,264,000,000. Eisenhower said outlays for missiles and research and development will rise more than 800 million dollars. Eisenhower told Congress he plans a 383-million-dollar cut in the mutual security program. Military assistance would be trimmed by 462 millions to $1,850,000,000 but economic aid would edge up 79 millions to $1,648,000,000. In a related area, Eisenhower asked Congress to provide $1,375,000,000 to increase the U.S. subscription to the International Monetary Fund. If Congress agrees, this sum will be added to spending in fiscal 1959—a big reason for the increased deficit predicted. With the bigger deficit comes a June 30, 1964. Responds to Needs Anticipating Democratic claims that he is being too thrifty, Eisenhower said his budget "responds to national needs, with due regard to urgencies and priorities, without being either extravagant or unduly limiting." "We cannot, of course, undertake to satisfy all proposals for government spending," he declared. . . The President said his propos- _ als "are realistic and can be i n "th7'city* a"bu"rglaiTmay achieved with the cooperation of; the Congress." He conceded a lot MISSILES (Continued horn Page 1) al security programs account for the lion's share—45,805,000,000 or nearly 60 per cent. $10 Billion Defense Of this total, Eisenhower has Nike Zeus anti-missile missile "is earmarked $40,945,000,000 for the being developed at an accelerated pace." This missile, is intended to intercept and destroy enemy ICBMs headed for American targets. The first Polaris submarine- a nuclear - powered boat armed with 14 missiles—will go into operation in 1960. Construction of six Polaris submarines is under way. The building of three more is au thorized. The project for developing a nuclear-powered warplane will get about the same spending funds next year as this, approximately 150 million dollars. The Defense Department and AEC share this expenditure. 1,610 Planes The military plans to buy 1,610 planes with its fiscal 1960 funds Of this total, 703 will be Air Force 668 Navy, 239 Army. The Navy's shipbuilding programs for fiscal 1960 calls for 21 new ships, compared with 22 in the present program. The budget message said that the Navy recommended building of a conventionally powered, Forrestal class carrier. Until now, the Navy has been) pressing for permission to go ahead with construction of a second nuclear-powered, 80,000-ton carrier.

Old Age Aid He explained that more money is needed to carry on many of the department's programs, which include old age assistance, aid to dependent children 'and aid to the blind. A major factor, he added, is salaries and supplies. He mentioned the need to pay salaries for a full two-year period for 300 new employes hired on a staggered basis the last two years, need for some 200 new employes and of staffing a new building at the Brainerd hospital which will be opened in about a year. The opening, gun in the fight against daylight saving time, expected to be a hot issue during this session, was fired by a group calling itself the Citizen's Committee for Standard Time. Chairman of the group is Charles Winchell, president of the Minnesota Amusement Co,, and many other members are theater men.
