PAGE TEN Lawmakers Urge Budget Cut Before Seeing It WASHINGTON (AP) — President Truman's annual budget goe.s to Congress today, and both Democrats and Republicans were demanding drastic cuts even before they saw It. Not until the lengthy message ls read shortly after noon will the leg islators know the full details, bu U Is common knowledge in congressional corridors that the President contemplates federal spending of somewhere around 83 billion dollars during the fiscal year starting next July 1. That would result In "a deficit o. around 14 billions based on current revenue expectations and the likelihood (hat Congress will turn a dea ear to the President's recent reques 1 for another five billions In taxes. SS Illllion Deficit Expected The deficit for the present flsca year is estimated to run from sever to eight billion. "I have never yet seen a IjuciBel that couldn't be cut," said Rep. Taber of New York, (op Hepubllcai oti the purse-holding House Apnro- prlatloa'i Committee. Cuts "Always Talked 1 * Many members of Congress always talk of making drastic budget cuts at this time of the year, but the economy drive often falls short. In three of the last five years, Congress has voted more than the President asked In his budget. Demands for a slash in government spending were backed up by a wide variety of protwsals on how to cut: Sen. Ives (R-NY) said today he fnvored "putting entire agencies, functions and programs under' notice to Justify their existence, or nt least their size." He said he bc- llevctl many could be eliminated or at least suspended or cut. O'Conor Oppowj Taxes Sen. O'Cor.or (D-Md). flrttly opposing new taxes, urged a savings of four to five billion dollars by cutting non-defense spending nnd tightening up on waste In military spending. Rep. Dwlght L. Rogers (D-Pla) renewed his suggestion the house change its rules and require members to go on record publicly every time they voted < to spend public money, pep. Heed (R-NY) suggested that ail new tax legislation be held up until a team of the itttton's "bes fiscal brains" could look It over.

Two Programs Ignored He rtlct not mention two controversial programs he plumped for ruti!e.v In bis last budget—(In; Brun- nnn plan of farm subsidies and national health insurance. Overall, national security programs would Inke 76 cents out of every dollar, the President said—ant non-defense spending would be slushed one billion dollars under the current year. He called for eoo million dollar,' in appropriations for civilian defense Including construction of bomb shelters, aurt said continued refusal by Congress to provide it "could be a fatal gap Jn our security structure." New Revenue Agents Asked Other highlights were proposals to add 7,000 agents to the scandal- hit bureau or Internal revenue, extend CSI benefits to Korean war veterans, increase funds for govrrn- mmt-butU defense housing more than ten times, boost postal rate? by 500 million dollars, nnd start the long-proposed St. Lawrence seaway us n "strnctBlc necessity." The President said without new taxes the national debt would Increase lt> $274.022,000,000 by June, 1053—Just under the present legal limit, of 275 billion. These huge red ink en'.ric'i nre matter of "grave concern." he said, ind Congress ought to realize the- risks involved. Goal Is Abandoned He s»ld he was forced to abandon his goul of "pay-as-we'go" for :he defense program when congress gave him only a little more than lalf of the 10 billion in tax Increases he sought last year. Next fiscal year's spending cstl- nato of $85,444,000.000 compiucd vlth a revised estimate of 470,881,000,000 for this year, ending June 30, nnd $44,033,000,000 actually spent ost year. Thlnl IjirKcsl In History Spending in the new fiscal ycnr would be the third biggest In lils- ory—twice the size of tiic first post- var years, bigger than the first full year of World War II, topped only >y the two peak years of that war when the federal flow of dollars mssed the 05 billion mark. ft would amount to $550 for every man, woman und child in the na- lon. The projected nations! debt vould be $1,768 per capita. Huge xpectcd deficits would contrast with a $3,510,000.000 surplus Inst year.

Swimming from the fuselage out to the wing almost paralyzed me. "While I was OK the wing, two or three men slipped off near me. We pulled them back. One man lost his head and couldn't help himself. He wouldn't sland up. I don't know when he went. We did everything in our power to save him." "Every man who survived is real man. There- may have been fear—but we didn't panic.
