Administration Saying— President Will Seek $80 Billion'53 Budget WASHINGTON (AP) - Administration sources are saying President Tiuman will seek an 80-billlon-dollar budget next year — ten billion dollnrs above the goal of some Influential Republican leaders. An administration official, who* asked not to be named, said an 30-billion-dollar spending program 'or the year beginning next July 1 is likely because of a rise In ultherto-lagglng defense payments. Spending In f he '12-month period ending next June Is estimated at 19 billion dollars, although some officials believe the actual figure may turn but to be as low as 15 billions. Earlier this week Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio, chairman of the OOP's Senate Policy Committee, said he" and President-elect Eisen- liower hnd agreed on a budget target of 70 billion dollars for next fiscal '.year. 'Rep. Taber (R-NY), u-ho will -head the house, appropriations committee In ^ the new Republican - controlled Congress, has set the same goal. May. Find Tough Going GOP budget cutters .may . find some. tough going, however, in the fact that military outlays — which make up the bulk of government spending, and get cautious treatment on capltol hill — are due for a further -boost. The administration source said the defense program now looks as if it will undershoot Its 51 billion- dollar goal this year by about four billion dollars. The rearmament program L ,Vs still' undergoing « he said, and will not reach its peak until early in the 12 months beginning next July 1.

The transfer of this information, a White House spokesman said, was part of President Truman's plan to shift administrations smoothly. The spokesman said one volumn deals with problems relating to Individual countries and > geographical areas, along with policy currently In force there.
