FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 1950 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THf NAT/ON TODAY— Calls for Slashing the Budget Heard in Halls of Congress But Getting Reductions Not So Easy By diaries Molony (For James Marlow) WASHINGTON, Jan. 20. W'j—Congress Is rocking with calls lor cutting President Truman's $12,439,000,000 spending budget.. But Ihe cold record shows that, this Is easier said than done. Government spending has wound up greater than Mr. Truman pre- I dieted 111 three cf his four budgets lor previous years although there | has been some clamor far cuts every time. The Increase (or the tour years* I totals 53,800.000.000. :tilily for after-budget, in- spending is disputable I . . 1. Congress has sometimes voted I to spend more on certain tilings I tlian Mr. Truman recommended. 1 2. Mr. Truman has sometimes I come through with new or expanded spending proposals.after his initial | budget message. 3. Circumstances unforeseen oy either the President, or Congress \\" "• R ° ach . son of Mr. and Mi sometimes knock Initial spending I » alv fy Roach, and Mrs. Kami estimates haywire.

IIP)— A two-year-old hoy and his grandmother were killed late yesterday in an explosion and fire at their farm home near here. Three others were hurt. The Ilamcs took the lives of Marvin H.

Ser-ks Highest Peacetime Budget I Mr. Truman's lie\v budget for the 112 months starting ncxt_July 1 is I the most costly peacetime program lever laid down "by a President at the I opening of Congress. It foreshadows a SS.m.OOO.OOO deficit unless | taxes are raised. Yet it anticipates .111 S858.000.000. lor two per cent cut under the cur- Irent spending rate of $43.297,000,000. |Tlie current rate itself is the outgrowth of a S41.858.000.000 program I Mr. Truman submitted a year ago. . The President's claim of a cut milder current year rates depends • heavily on two estimates that he J admitted to be—necessarily—based i guesses: 1. That veterans costs will de- Icline by S83S.OOO.OOO, largely because fewer veterans will apply for Doling and other readjustment ncfits. • 2. That outlays for farm price • supports will drop S581.000.000. I Tile President said in his message I that Congress lias as much respon- Isibility for 'government, spending as • he has, for "all expenditures flow • from obligational authority enacted • by the-Congress." Fixed Charges Heavy _ He reminded Congress, too, tliat l$12.100,000.000. or 29 per cent, of his • spending total was authorized at • earlier sessions of Congress, put- Iting it beyond the reach of "econo- Iniy drives." I Mr. Truman this time beat Coii- Igres.s. to the punch on one program • that has added S800.000.000 on pa- I per'to lus past two budgets and has laddcd that much to congressional Iclaitns of "spending cuts." I That program was universal military training. Mr. Truman men- Itioned it favorably in passing, but • quit anticipating its approval by • Congress and dropped it altogether • from his spending estimate.-!. I Here is the record on the four • previous budgets Mr. Truman has •—Igiitted: Knnnry 1946: Proposed spending I total S35.aGO.000.000: actual total at • years end S33.289.000.000; increase IS3.423.000.000.
