TREASURY DEPARTMENT IN NEED OF CASH 1961 »* By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NKW YORK (AP)-While President Eisenhower is readying his final federal budget which lie says will be balanced, his Treasury Department is reporting it needs morn cash—now. The reasons is that tax collections continue to disappoint. And the reason they do is chielly that business activity continues to lag behind the Treasury's earlier estimates, even its sharply lower guess last October. The tie between the Treasury's health and that of business is a close one. And while President-elect John F. Kennedy is preparing his inaugural address which may show what hp expects of business ac- tivily.Jiis choice for Treasury sec- retary, Douglas Dillon, is telling senators that slow tax collections may cause a deficit in the fiscal year starting July 1. no matter what the budget offered next Monday may predict. The Treasury's present plight isn't serious. It is seeking 5100 million in new money now — a mere dab in a $Sl-billion budget and a $90-billion federal debt—although it may seek still more cash in the next few weeks. And the Treasury expects any '.•ash stringency to disappear after February when collections from income tax returns normally pick up. Last January the Treasury was expecting to have a $4-billion surplus when it closes its fiscal books this coming June 30. It was de- PONYTAU -/3 if) 1951.

By summer it was obvious that business profits weren't going to be that good, and the Treasury revised its surplus estimate to $l.l-billion. Today many outside the Treasury doubt if there'll be that much of a surplus, if any. Actually business profits in 1960 are turning out to total just about svhat they did in 195t«. The trouble is that the current federal budget was counting on them to ciimb well above 1959 and furnish enough in taxes to meet the higher spending in the current fiscal year and leave some over to apply on the federal debt. They didn't, the surplus prospect is melting away, and the Treasury is seeking cash when it was thought last October it would be sitting pretty well into spring. The point of the Treasury's current entry into the money market for more cash after it had presumably got itself well fixed for some time ahead is that this puts another dollar and cents emphasis on the extent of the business slowdown — the Treasury still doesn't like to call it a recession.

JU 2-3532 Rayburn About To Quit Battle For Rules Change By DREW PEARSON WASHINGTON (Sp) - Speaker Sam Rayburn has just about decided to throw in the sponge in his battle with the Dixiecrat Republican coalition to change the rules of the House of Representatives. In the face of vigorous opposition, some of it snarling, some of it sweet talk, Rayborn has inched steadily backward. He is now willing to let Dixiecrat Congressman Bill Colmer of Mississippi, who has bucked the Democratic ticket three times running, stay on the Key Rules Committee which has the power to bottle up any piece of legislation it may so desire and keep it from a vote on the floor of the House of Representatives by all congressmen. It was Chairman Howard Smith of Virginia, who works hand-in- glove with bom Colmer and GOP Charlie Halleck of Indiana, who backed the speaker away from his original rigid stand that Colmer must exit from the Rules Committee. Sam is now standing on a compromise whereby one additional Democrat would be added to the Rules Comnjittee, thus putting nine Democrats to four Republicans on the committee, rather than the present eight-to-four ratio. Under the present ratio, two Dbdecrats — namely Colmer and Smith — always voted with the Republicans, which permitted them to bottle up legislation with a 6-6 tie vote. Speaker Rayburn, now 79 years old, came back from Boriham, Tex., with fire in his eyes, but the longer he talked with old friends in the house, the more he yearned for peace. Ham And Beans Sent Instead Of Pay Raise TOPEKA. Kan. (AP)—Back before the Nov. S general election, State Rep. John Conard stumped his constituency in behalf of a salary increase for Kansas legislators. "Next to a legislative pay raise." lip told a ham-and-bean political dinner at the time, "I like these ham and beans best." A constitutional amendment for increasing legislative salaries was defeated, but Conard's constituents remembered. Ur received 30 pounds of frown ham and beans. message Monday is expected to show how much of a surplus, il any, he expects the Treasury to have June 30. And after the new secretary of the Treasury gets settled into office he may revise this estimate. But the point for businessmen is that when corporate profit margins are pinched as they have been this year—sometimes by declining sales and more often by rising operating costs—it isn't lust the stockholder who suffers. The U.S. Treasury gets squeezed right along with him. Sun TeleScope By CYNTHIA LOWBY AP TV-Radio Writer , NEW YORK (AP)-"The Untouchables" two-part drama, bullet-pocked and corpse - strewn, came to the anticipated happy ending Thursday night. Elliot Ness had foiled the Chicago and West Coast gangsters— they were either dead or captured —and the prison train break averted. A vicious snarling prisoner identified as Al Capone was safely transferred from Atlanta Penitentiary to Alcatraz. Ness and his hardy aides were safe, sound and ready for new adventures. Obviously, after the controversy which blew up after last week's installment o£ "The Big Train" episode, it was an ironic oversight that the only culprit that got away undetected was a. corrupt priaoi: guard who had a part in the escape plot. After the first installment, James B. Bennett, head of the Federal Bureau of Prisons, fired a blast at ABC for the way the show depicted federal prison personnel and asked that the second installment be withheld until he had consulted the Federal Communications Commission and the atorney general. ABC declined, but at the end of Thursday night's program an announcer proclaimed that nothing in the program was intended to imply "any reflection on the integrity of the officers of the Federal Bureau of Prisons." "The Untouchables," a well- made, exciting and enormously popular series, is in a curious bind of its own making. The two- part episode about the attempted prison train holdup was admittedly sheer fiction. There was a real prohibition agent named Elliot Ness, but Thursday night's story was set in post-prohibition times and foiling prison train breaks would not have been a Ness assignment anyway. But the series is now two years old and the producers have long since run out of real Ness cases. But one of the gimmicks of the series is still to use real names of real gangsters, now deceased. It gives an air of realism to the program. Complaints like the prison director's are encountered by most of police action TV shows, even the ones set in carefully unidentified communities. Lawyers get upset when lawyers are depicted as cheats or scoundrels, doctors complain when their profession gets a rough handling and the police are always very touchy about bad-cop or stupid-cop characterizations. But when fiction is laced a bit with realjMunes the ice gets really thin. Aside from the controversy about .the prison personnel and the unfortunate — unnecessary, really —use of Capone's name, it was an exciting, taut and very interesting show. Earlier, CBS showed the first of a two-part installment of "Vanity Fair," and that, too, was excellent entertainment. Thackerey's Georgian classic was skillfully and interestingly brought to the screen in the fast- moving and adroit adaptation. Becky Sharp, the cruel, conniving heroine was very well played by pretty Diane Cileno, and John Colicos had the part of Rawdon, her husband. Thursday night we followed Becky from her departure as a charity student from a girl's school to a point where she had married the black sheep of a very good family. Tonight we'll get the second half of the lady's upwtrd progress. Recommended tonight: Family Classics. CBS. 7:30-8:30 EST—second half of "Vanity Fair"; American Heritage.

HARVEY SEWS FARM SHOW Rve State Bilk Being Prepared On Migrant Labor AUSTIN (AP)—Five bills are being prepared by the Texas Council on Migrant Labor for presentation to the legislature to ease the pressing problems of the state's migrant labor force. Egon Tausch, executive director of the council, described the measures Wednesday to the state conference on domestic migrant farm workers, a non-government* al organization of citizens interested in both farm economy and the status of the migrant worker. More than 100 delegates talked about education, health, housing, transportation and economic problems of the state's migrant labor force of 105,000 persons. Jerry Holleman, Texas AFL- CIO president named recently as an assistant secretary of labor, promised to work for increased prosperity lor the fanner to bring better wages to the farm em- ployes. Holleman said 1 social conscience requires that "we do something for .the migrant farm worker. These people have been exploited, often, regularly and quite recently by crew leaders." Tausch advocated revision of thf> child labor !9\vs arid strengthening of school attendance laws applying to the 12.000 migrant children. He urged state licensing of migrant crew leaders to establish standards of behavior to eliminate instances of abuses. He listed vehicle safety as another area where legislation is needed to insure that trucks transporting workers are properly equipped and maintained to provide necessary safety features. He also said that many camps constitute a health menace to occupants as well as the community. Bob Sanchez of McAllen said the basic need to the overall problem is a reduction in the influx of braceros. He said ample workers are available in Texas, "if you pay them a decent wage." KENNEDY'S STUDY GROUPS GIVE RECOMMENDATIONS Some Pay Taxes Twice When Receipt Is Sent JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Some people must like to pay taxes. T. E. McDowell, assistant tax collector for Duval County, said several persons have paid their tax bills twice. After the office mailed receipts for the first payment, the taxpayers made out new checks and sent them back with the receipts. fey JAMES MARLOW PrcM News Awlyst WASHINGTON (AP)-It's raining recommendation!. President-elect John F. Kennedy, during the campaign and after his election, wanted ideas on how to do better for the government and the people. He wanted them before he was sworn in Jan. 20. So he appointed study groups which went under various names —task force, committee, study panel—to look into the problems assigned them and come up with proposals. They're coming in now: recommendations which range from reorganizing the Defense Department to sending a peace corps of young Americans to newly independent Asian and African countries as techicians. This is a big advantage for Kennedy. It gives him a head start in putting together programs be can submit to Congress in a hurry. President Eisenhower was prodigious in creating commissions but he waited until he moved iato the White House. The- long delay in making some of the studies simply dplayp<j sct'i*! on the problems. The "last Eisenhower commission—on national goals—reported Dec. 1. Right now in Washington 2,500 people from all over the country are taking part in a conference on the problems of aging. Congress wanted this one and Eisenhower had to call it. When there's a conference this size on «ny problem there should be no surprise If the result is hash. The unknown quantity about the recommendations being given Kennedy is what he will do with them when he gets into the White House. For instance: A committee beaded by Sen. Stuart Symington, D-Mo., was the first group to report aiid called for a reorganization of the Defense Department Symington, under President Truman, had been secretary of the air force and knows the inner workings of the Pentagon. But Kennedy was careful not to give the Symington report a hearty endorsement. He hadn't yet selected his secretary of defense, so he didn't know how he'd feel about it He finally made Robert S. McNamara secretary, and McNamara so far has exhibited no enthusiasm for Symington's ideas. On the other hand Kennedy ap- pointed a one-man committee, James M. Landis, a former Harvard Law School dean, to look into the government's regulatory agencies and make suggestions on improving them. Those agencies—such as the Interstate Commerce Commission, the Federal Power Commission, the Federal Communications Commission—have controls in most areas of American life. Landis, who had once worked among them himself—be is a former chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission — turned in a bristling criticism on the operations of these govern- Gable's Widow Given $5,000 For Expenses LOS ANGELES (AP)-Clark Gable's widow has a $5,000 monthly allowance from the actor's estate to meet family expenses.
