Say Federal Spending Is Going Higher Government Revenues Also Expected to Increase But Not As Much As Expected WASHINGTON (UP) - Congressional tax experts predicted today that despUe the congressional economy drive federal spending in fiscal 1958 will soar even hi»her than the record $71,800,000,000 [ore- cast by the administration. They said federal revenues also will lie higher than forecast but by a smaller amount. As a result, they forecast a budget surplus of only $1,300,000,000 for the year starting July 1 instead of the $1,800,000,000 forecast in the President's January budget message. They predicted that federal revenues for the year, starting July 1, will be 700 million dollars more than anticipated in the Eisenhower budget. But they said federal spending, despite congressional efforts to cut the budget, will total $1,200,000,000 more than the President estimated. These forecasts were in a report by the staff of the House-Senate Committee on Internal Revenue. The committee staff annually reviews the administration's income- outgo estimates for the coming fiscal year and presents estimates of its own. The staff's estimates in the past have been considerably more accurate than those in the President's January budget message. The staff predicted that expenditures in the current fiscal year would total $69,500,000,000, an Increase of 600 million dollars over the administration forecast. The staff estimated total revenues at $70,700,000,000, an increase of 100 million dollars over the administration's estimates. CROSSWORD PUZZLE An « w ' rto v«t«rday. p<nn.
