MOHEAT, JANUARY IT, 1MB BI/TTHBVILLB (ARK.)' COURIBR NEWS PAQB THRB1 President's Budget Message Is a Formidable Document By JAMES MARLOW A>«R'l>led Preis Newi Analyit WASHINGTON (AP) — This is an A-B-C on the budget which President Eisenhower sends to Congress today. A formidable document, thick as the biggest telephone book, it's Eisenhower's explanation of the cost of running the government another year. Government employes have worked on Ibis budget for months, trying to figure out precisely what the cost will be for the fiscal year starting next July 1, called fiscal 1056. Principally because of the cost of handling Hie cold war and maintaining defense, they have not been able to keep government expenses below income, Secretary of the Treasury Humphrey has said this new budget will not be balanced, So the government will havo to borrow to make up the deficit, Whatever it turns out to be in the end. Because of this expected deficit, you are likely to be disappointed if you're looking for an income tax cut this year. Since the government's executive branch under Eisenhower can't spend anything unless Congress, the legislative branch, votes the money, the President has to send his budget request to the lawmakers. Tedious Task Prom now until next summer, when it's due to quit for the year, Congress will be examining and arguing over this budget; trying to cut it down. Work on the budget started last summer. Officers In the Bureau of the Budget got together with the various government departments and special agencies, laying down spending limits for them to shoot at. Then officials in the departments, agencies and bureaus went to work. This meant they had to look ahead a year or more to what their expenses would be since the money could not be spent before the beginning of ilscal 1956, next July. Their estimates then went to budget offices in each department and special agency. They examined the figures, comparing them with the present year, trying to reduce them. This meant a lot of conferences within the departments and agencies. Finally the head of each department or special agency had to approve. Then the estimates Were sent to the Budget Bureau. 'Explanation Of : Officers there tried to cut down i the anticipated expenses again nnd they held conferences with the department and agency officials. After the Budget Bureau decided it had expenses down as far as I possible, the President had to approve. Then, with his assistants he wrote an explanation called tfr budget message to send to Con grcss along with the figures. Now Congress Roes to work. Th appropriations committees o House nnd Senate will call befor them the officials of the depart ments and the agencies to cxplaii why they think they need Ihi money they asked for, and if the; can, explain why they can't du with less. These hearings go on for months When the committees are satisfied that they have the estimates reduced to the bone, they send the estimates along with their recommendations to the House and Senate. And on the floor of both house.' money may be added or taken away U the House and Senate vote different amounts, as they generally do, committees from botli houses are set up to Iron out their differences and then both houses vote on the compromised figure.

KNOX BOSTON (fi — Among Greater Boston's two million residents, only five men (or was it maybe seven or eight?) knew something nightmarish was going to happen on the night of Jan. 17, just five years ago. Shadows were heavy around the bare concrete garage - and - office building In Boston's North End from which, dally, the Brink's, Inc. armored money - express trucks went on their missions between banks and businesses. People familiar with the area knew nothing of a strong room in :hat concrete building, nor of five Brink's employes with pistols near their hands that night while they counted money in millions. As investigators have reconstructed the scene, a light truck and an automobile drew up outside. When the last visible pedestrian vanished around a corner, men got out—the number was robbers working like swift robots, ' dumping heaps of money Into laundry bags, spoke only in muffled mutters, The robbers half dragged, half carried their bags with ?1,219,000 in cash Into the night. Atong- dark streets the robbers' car and their light truck— stolen months before— vanished with the stolen treasure. Neither Boston land and harbor police, metropolitan and state police, nor FBI, In five years ever caught up with that phantom gang or found one dollar of $98,000 in bilk whose serial numbers were known. Nor did the FBI ever report any trace of an, additional $1,431,000 In unregistered bonds, also allegedly taken that night. The robbers left no fingerprint or other useful clue. Parts of their stolen truck, dismembered by ace- HERE'S tylene torch, were found months later on a suburban dump. Department of Justice men have ------ „-- — impounded secret evidence, how- er definitely established. With vis- ever and thcy Eay the mvestiga _ ored caps and pea ackets, they proceeding. might .have been Brink's guards. But why did they wear gloves _nd rubbers on this mild, dry night? Why did each carry, under arm, a little white bundle— like a roiled-up laundry bag? And why were their faces grotesque — like those of clowns? A key unlocked an outside door. Walking with sureness which hinted familiarity, they passed through five more locked doors in the labyrinth-like interior. Nor did any guard hear them, nor the five men busy with money and money bags Not until 7:10 p.m.. when they heard the bark: "Open up! This Is a stickup. Don't give us any trouble." Then the Brink's men looked up and saw the row of grinning masks and the black guns. Forced to lie prone, tied up, their mouths taped, they saw little more. And the Hallowen-masked Marilyn Suspended Again HOLLYWOOD <ffi— Marilyn Monroe is on suspension for the second lime in a year at 20th Century- Fox for falling to report for work. Darryl F. Zanuck, production head at the studio, said Marilyn was suspended Saturday for not showing up for work on "How to Be Very, Very Popular," the Numially Johnson comedy. A studio spokesman said Miss Monroe has expressed dissatisfaction with her role in the movie. She has stated that she wants to act in "The Brothers Karamazov," a dramatic Russian story. Sheree North will take over the comedy role, Zanuck said. Miss North, he added, also will take over another role originally scheduled for Marilyn in the movie "Pink Tights."
