Five Cents.Pei; Copy UP FOR SUNDAY PUNCH 'Bedrock Necessity Stripped Of Frills'•• Ike Submits $65.5 Billi By DAYTON MOORE .WASHINGTON, Jan. 21-UP. President 'Eisenhower .- sent Congress Thursday a bedrock "necessity"., spending budget of. $65,570,- 006,OQO : which he said was stripped of frills and would'protect national safety and prosperity. He outlined S1.2 billion of selective, tax relief for some individuals 'and corporations, but opposed any further.general tax cuts .this'year. . This 'first' all-Republican budget in 22 years'was. slashed, $12.3 billion under the last Democratic -budget proposal. It still would leave the government 52,928,000,000 in the red in the fiscal • year of 1955, which begins this July 1. Mr ' Eisenhower. said "necessity —rather than mere desirability—" was the'test: he applied to all prc^ posed expenditures: •' . . He said he "firmly" believes his budget "will'not only protect our way of ; life but will also strengthen our economic base ' ; and enhance the welfare of all of-our people.'.'- :.As in every budget since the outbreak of the Korean war,, national security: was 'the- biggest, item by .far—$44.860,000,000'this':time.- This was $3.830:000,000 below the latest estimate for the current fiscal year. The President pledged to provide, more national defense for .less money by cutting down on manpower and-putting greater reliance on air power and atomic weapons. The U.S. military force s would get 837,575,000,000 of the national . se- curitv total. And :the Air Force would get the lion's'share of that —over. .816 billion. '.. . .... . Other big ..national defense items: 84,275,000,000 for foreign military aid, -$2,425,000,000 for -atomic energy, and $585,000,000 lor critical stockpiling. " ' , It added up to the. biggest air- power buildup since World War II —40,000 plane s by 1957 instead of the present 33,000—and the biggest atomic program in the nation's history. Mr. Eisenhower's proposed spending figure was $5.3 billion under the latest:, estimates for the .current fiscal year of 1954 and.-$12.3 'billion-'under-the latest estimates for the current fiscal year of 1954 and $12.3 billion under'.the amount proposed by former President. Truman just before h e left office, last year.' .-'•.• . '"•..'•''•.-• -The 1955 budget stacked up against fiscal 1954 like this in billions of dollars: First figures are Truman's 1954, proposed- budget, second is the 1954 revised budget and third column is the .1955 proposed budget. Spending ..:.... .877.9 S70.9 $65.6 Receipts ••• 68.0 67.6 62.7 Deficit'...'...:... 9.9 3.3. 2.9 ..To finance the proposed spending, Mr. Eisenhower asked $56.3 billion of new appropriations. This is not as large a K the spending figure because huge amounts of' past appropriations are still available. . . ' •'.-.-He pledged that his administration "will continue de'termined ef- , forts f° r economy -to reduce .the deficit." Savings will be translated into further tax cuts "as rapidly as justified" in future years. 28 U.5.
