However, nmong the few lawmakers available for comment on the revised budget estimates released Tuesday night, none challenged the possibility that the drop- back point has been reached. Rep. Daniel A. Reed of New York; ranking Republican on the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, said it had been evident to him for some time that retail business has been lagging. He observed that such a condition wild hardly exist without a back- lift on manufacturers. The Budget Bureau's cstimat of government income has ru rather consistently lower than a Lual receipts in most recent years In his new look at the budge Truman figured that not only r ceipts but spending and the yea end deficit are coming clown. Fo the fiscal year · which ends ne: June 30, he lowered his eslimal of receipts from 71 billion dollar to $68,700,000,000; of expenditure from $85,400,000,000 to 79 billion do lars; a.ul of the deficit, from $14 400,000,000 to $10,300,000,000. One exception to the downtren was individual income taxes whic will bring in about 33'/4 billion do lars, or half a billion more tha the January estimate. T r u m a n currently estimated tha corporation taxes wiil bring $24,800,000,000 instead of $27,800 000,000. o Boise, Idaho, where--after* onferring w i t h Republican' pvernors. of 10 Western states-- j plans to make his speech (G p. . CST) from the capitol steps. Eisenhower's talks with'the gov- rnors deal with Western prob- ms--reclamation, · soil conserva- on, water power. But his speech terin the day is all-American in cope, aimed at the voters of all I states. In an unusual advance statement, Arthur H, Vandenberg Jr., IB general's executive secretary, aid in. his address Eisenhower ill: Denounce leftist political groups or trying to claim that their way s the only way to achieve "agreed ocial goals." Down the Middle Contend that the best method of caching some goals upon which mericans are agreed -- employ- icnt and good wages, old age ecurity, better education, belter ousing, protection of the rights f labor' stable agriculture--is to follow a course squarely down he middle, rejecting both the ex- remc right and extreme left." Charge that the present admin stration is offering new faces bu' he same old arguments which claim that the only solutions to pressing problems are "schemes ike the Brannan Farm Plan, so cialized medicine, and bigger anc more centralized government." Vandenberg's reference to t middle ground course and rejec ion of both the extreme right anc eft recalled advice given to Eisen lower recently by Republican av. Val Peterson of Nebraska. "Great Ground" Peterson told newsmen at the ime that he had advised the gen ral that the "great ground o America" was where the votes are. He said Eisenhower ought to gnore the extremes. Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois he Democratic presidential can lidale, hid from public and poll icians on a timbered retreat near dinocqua, Wis., taking a brief res jefore plunging back into the cam paign Friday.

Mario Giannini, President of Bank of America; Dies SAN FRANCISCO UP -- Lawrence Mario Giannini, president of ;he Bank of America nnd one of the nation's last f i n a n c i a l giants, died Tuesday night after n lingering illness. He was 57 years old. The c h i e f executive of the world's l a r g e s t bank," w h o fought vigorously against government control of the gigantic empire his i m m i g r a n t father had built up, died at 71:25 p.m. Giannini's physician, Dr. Lcroy Brooks, w h o a t t e n d e d h i m a t F r n n k l i n Hospital, said the f i n a n - cier apparently died of n heart attack. G i a n n i n i was in an oxygen tent and had been in critical condition for several days. Giannini's death came less than four years nftcr the death of his father, Amadeo Peter Giannini, an Italian i m m i g r a n t who came to this country ns n pauper and lived to become one of its most powerful financiers. The elder Giannini founded the Bank of America which revolutionized banking methods and later formed the controversial West To Set Up Another 5 Year Plan First Congress in 13 Years MOSCOW W^-The Soviet Unipn't ruling Communist P a , r t y announced Wednesday , that it will hold its first party congress in 13 years on Oct. 5 to give the party a sweeping reorganization and set up n fifth 5-year plan to increase Soviet industrial output 70 per cent by the end o£ 1955. A decree o[ the party's central committee, published in all Moscow papers, said the party's top control body, its Politburo, would e replaced by °a "presidium" hich would have the function 'of guiding the work of the party entral committee between scs- ons.'" New Statute .The changes in party orgahiza- on are provided in a new statute , o be taken up by,the congress. It is clear that the new presl- ium of the central committee will ave as .much or perhaps even ' rioro importance ' than the, pres? nt Polltlburo, it as! also conceiy- · ble -- indeed, probable-- th'at, it" will ave much ^he'same^'composjtlon. However, 'not until after, the ^ new tatutes are adopted, by the^com- ng loth party congress iruOctober nd the election oft the 'newj central ommittcc will, the !makeup'6t th« rosidlum' be '^ known. ^ » , ' * · ' , ? Under the new statutes, the sec- ' ·ctariat'of Jhe' central commute* ipparenlly retains much thVsame 'unctions as'l under the v ' previous, itatutes, but the new- central committee theoretically · cin ,, mak* changes in this 'respect; ,too: The Politburo, deriving its power .heoret!cally,frorn the central com- nittcc of the Communist Bartyjjis n fact the ruling bqdy^f the Soviet Jnion, and thus ot' world Com'mu- ifsm. It is made up" of, .Prime Minister Joscph'IStalhv party gen- ral secretary, and JO others! plus number of alternate members, and has wielded unquestioned au- horily under Stalin. The new statutes also provide for :hangitig the two-decade-old,name of the party from the All-ynion Communist Party Bolsheviks to, the 'Communist Party "of the Soviet Union."- ' ' 0 , Western observers here consid- red -the meeting 'would be the most important held in 'the Soviet Union since the end of World War I. Major Event In Western capitals officials and observers also saw the scheduling of the party Congress as a major event, though they were re- uctant to immediately speculate exactly what it might mean. For ome time Westerners have considered that the failure of the Sovet Communists to call a party convention indicated possible weaknesses in the party structure at lome. Wednesday's announcement could mean that Russia's Communist rulers now feel they are strongly enough entrenched to face the party members. The announcement included directives the Congress will be asked to approve for the new, fifth five- year economic plan. This, the party decree said, would cover the years 1951 through 1955. The directives, which are expected to be the basis of the new economic goals the Soviet government will set, call for total Soviet industrial production to increase 12 per cent annually. By the end of 1955, tolnl output would be 70 per cent greater than in 1950. As with previous Soviet economic announcements, Wednesday's pronouncement dealt only with percentages. The proposed directive gave no tonnages or other production quantities. M A R I O G I A N N I N I Coast banking combine known a TransAmerica.
