WASHINGTON, June 27. The Roosevelt administration closes its books for the 1937 fiscal year Wednesday with three new records inscribed the smallest deficit since the New Deal's advent, an all-time high national debt, and the highest revenue collections since the World War. Although final figures for the year will not be available until Friday, latest treasury statistics indicate the deficit will aggregate less than $3,000,000,000. The national debt, meanwhile, appeared almost certain to approximate $36,300,000,000, almost $1,300,000,-000 above the pe;ik anticipated by the President in his January budget message. A few weeks ago the public debt skyrocketed to $36,600, 000,000 because of the treasury's $800,000,-000 financing operations, but re demption of about $300,000,000 in short-term bills reduced the total. Income Way Up. There are statistical indications the government's income for the fiscal year will surpass by at least $50,000,000 the $5,224,000,000 expected in last April's revised budget. The June 24 statement, the latest available, showed receipts aggregating $5,213,031,412, already exceeding by more than a billion dollars the 1930 boom-time collections, and highest since the war period. The government's spending for the fiscal year will exceed $8,000,-000,000 but very likely will be held within the revised budget estimate of $8,182,000,000. Other notable developments during the fiscal year that will be reflected in the year-end accounting include: 1. Borrowing of approximately $2,250,000,000 in fresh funds, lowest new money financing for any fiscal year since the Roosevelt administration took office. Gold Program. 2. Beginning of the gold "sterilization" program, designed to aid in preventing undue credit inflation. 3. Failure of income taxes to come up to expectations, resulting in a treasury drive against alleged tax-dodgers and in an economy edict of President Roosevelt. The 1937 deficit, lowest since 1931 when the government spfnd-ing exceeded income by more than $901,959,000, was considered significant in that it indicated the beginning of an era of economy. It was in marked contrast with the 1936 deficit of $4,763,841,643. highest incurred for any New Deal fiscal year. Treasury statistics indicate a decrease of almost $700,000,000 in spending as compared with the 1936 fiscal year. TELEPHONE RATES TO BE DISCUSSED Conference Today May Settle Question.

Grady, of Bolton road, 1$ shown above nursing one of her kittens and "Bugger," a black and brown puppy she has adopted. Bugger is about six weeks old the same age approximately as Mammy's litter of kittens, to which he has been admitted in full membership. Cat, Mother of Six, Adopts Puppy, Who Joins Litter Sans Argument "Mammy" has six kittens and one puppy. The kittens are hers by right of birth, but the pup, christened "Bugger," considers himself no less one of the brood albeit his membership is by adoption. Mammy is a pure wrhite tabby cat belonging to Mrs. J. E. Grady, who lives on the Bolton road just off the Bankhead highway. About six weeks ago she presented her owner with a litter of kittens by no means her first. Then a few days ago a neighbor gave Mrs. Grady a black and brown pup, about five weeks old. For a day or two the newcomer was treated as the stranger he was in the new backyard, but when his novelty wore off, Mammy's maternal instinct began to assert itself. She noticed Bugger's forlorn expression as he dolefully watched her kittens at mealtime, and when he finally became bold enough to give her a questioning nudge she readily capitulated, and allowed him to join the party. Now he is the first one in line when the dinner bell rings, and he is fatter than any of his adopted brothers and sisters. 4 KILLED, 12 INJURED IN BRITISH TRAIN CRASH LONDON, June 27.
