MOSCOW, Feb. I, (UP)—The Soviet Union today went on a strict economy budget under which only the "most urgent and important' construction projects will oe undertaken. The new Soviet budget, approver! by the supreme Soviet at its closing session, calls for income of 423,000,000,000 rubles and expenses nf 388,000.000.000 with a surplus of 41,000,000,000. HcquesLs by several deputies for increased appropriations for major capital construction projects in their districts were refused with the warning that "only the most urgent an i important construction projects" could be undertaken in 1948. Soviet Finance Minister A. G. Zverev warned that appropriations for new projects would cause "harmful scattering ot funds, divert attention from Hie most important projects already underway and rais,"; the volume of materials and technical eciuipment needed at construction sites." He pointed out that the budget provides 10,000,000,000 rubles more for capital construction than last year and also noted that some republics did not spend all the construction funds allotted them n 1947. He said that monetary reforms and lowering prices had reduced the profit margin of state industries by , about 57,000,000.000 rubles. Pern/scot Gins 97,772 Bales Of '47 Cotton CAHUTHERSVILLE.

Many farmers, they said, have sold slightly used trnc- tors to other farmers at prices Sl.- 000 or morc above the manufacturer's lisi price. The faiin equipment makers said they would tell their story of the market to t,he House Agriculture Committee in Washington ne»a week. Rep. Clifford Hope, R., Kan., committee chairman, announced yesterday that Die committee would begin public hearings on the farm black market Feb. 10. Many manufacturers said they already had received invitations from Hope lo appear for testimony at the hearings. They said they would tell the committee that the only ultimate solution of the black market problem is increased production to satisfy the huge demand. When that would be, they said, was anybody's guess. Most of the big companies, including International Harvester, Allis Chalmers, Caterpillar Tractor and J. I. Case, are expanding their production facilities. Shifts With Harvest Seasons ManuI.LCturers said the shortage of farm machinery is caused by many factors. During the war they '.vere occupied almost entirely with war production. In 1946 several of the major companies, including Al- fr'is Chalmers snd j. i. Case, were • btset by strikes. "" Step, shortages have been a con- tributnig factor, spokesmen said. Nevertheless, most of the larm implement plants are running at capacity. Still, they have not e:*se^l the ti^jht supply problem.

CHICAGO, Feb. 5. <UF>— A ninjor price clpcline swept the big (-rain exchanges today and industrial stocks at Nevr York plunged lo their lowest level since June 2. The price ol corn, wheat, oats and soybeans dropped the full limit allowed for the second day in a row at Chicago, Mimieapolis and Kansas City. At Washington, government officials were wondering whether It was a temporary decline or whether Inflation had reached the peak and a sharp downward trend hiul bcfiun. Traders disagreed on the of the break. Some said corn, the nation's b?sic crop, had "overpriced itself." They said- fanners liad curbed drastically their use of com in fattening livestock.
