PAGE TWELVE (ARK.) COUKTER NT5WS Truman's Goodbye Gift To Congress Will Be Wasted Federal Budget WASHINGTON Wl — Prcnlrtonl Truman's goodbye pill to COHRTCRR will be a government bucipcl the elze of a big city phone book, Important sections of which sre likely to become waste pap^r wllhin three dnys. It isn't Truman's irton, A 1950 law requires him to give Congress a detailed esUmnte of federal Income and outgo wilhin 15 days flfter the opening of a regiihir ECS- slon. The new B3rd Congress, most of r hr>se membership will be rirtor- riilnnd in the November rleciirms, convenes next Jan. 3. 1\e budget raessnge must be ai the Capitol by Jan. 17. At hifih noon on Jan. 20 n new President tnkes his onlh and Truman becomes a private citi/cn. At the same moment, Ihc odds are heavy that key sections of the Truman budge! will start hearting for the' congressional wnsm baskets. Regardless of whn wins Hie presidency, it is unlikely he will agree 100 per cent with his predecessor's fiscal plrtn for the government accounting year which starts next July 1. Nor is there tiilm lietwcrn election and Inauguration dny to do jnuch about it. The Pre.^idr-nt-elert, ifter reco\'cring some of the oner- jy spent in his campnign. pi-esum- flblv will want to s(art putting together the inaugural address which will sound the keynnto for the beginning of his administration. The budget, moreover, is no simple document a mnn can spread out before him and say, We'll cut so much here, and add so much to this program. This particular financial estimate hns been under preparation by the Budget Bureau since last Mny. Long before that, each department was Instructed by Ihc White House to elate its needs for Ihc ftscn] 1!)54, as the next accounting period Is known. ! It contains literally hundreds of ] thousands of Items. By no means j all of these are likely to lie or even could be revised by (he new tenant ;of the White House, A vast number jot them represent continuum ap- I prouriMions for such items as the [public debt and statutory pro| grams approved by previous Con! stresses.
