For requests, including his two top priority items. The tax reduction bill appears to be on the track to passage. Civil rights legislation, high on the "must" list but not tied to the budget, is expected to get through after a bitter fight. Parts of Jolinson's a n t i poverty program, although only lightly sketched out in his budget message, also seem to have a reasonable chance of pas sage. Other Johnson-Kennedy proposals seem destined for the scrap heap. Johnson is not expected to be any more successful than his predecessor in getting health care for the aged financed by Social Security. His adopted major proposals for a national service corps, a youth conservation corps, federal aid for public grade and high schools, and assistance for big city transit systems face the same trouble as during Kennedy's administration—not enough votes. Easier Going Some of the lesser requests may find easier going. Exam pies could be an $11 million increase in funds for nursing edu cation, a $5 million expansion of the Hill-Burton Hospital Construction program, and a broadening of the existing library services program. Part of the Johnson legislative program is directly tied to his plan for financing new programs by cutting back old ones. He can expect fights in trying to get new, less costly, cotton and dairy price support legislation, authority . for the Rural Electrification Administration to reuse its loan collections, and new taxes on air freight and fuel used by jet planes and river boats and barges. Johnson also served notice he would seek another in the long line of extensions of Korean War excise taxes, and possibly two boosts in the national debt NASA Johnson proposed a budget of S4.99 billion, up $590 million from 1964. The next biggest space spend- sions was cut $30.7 million in Johnson's new appropriation request from the S172.7 million voted by Congress for the cur rent fiscal year. NASA's request for nuclear rockets was cut from $82.7 mil lion to $58 million, the AEC's from $90 million to $84 million. Eliminated in the new budget is money for the Rift project to develop a flight test version of the nuclear rocket. Cut back is the Nerva program to develop a nuclear rocket engine. Ground - based research on nuclear rockets will continue.

Republicans probably will attack the document as a Utopian dream that will fizzle before the end of the year. Lower Thin .Previous The Johnson spending plan marked the first time since fiscal 1960 that Congress had re ceived a budget lower than the preceding one. During the past five years, budget totals have been shooting up at the rate of nearly $5 billion a year. The President's deficit-shrinking operation was concentrated in two budgetary departments In addition to the cutback in spending, he predicted that fed oral revenues will jump $4.6 billion—despite the tax cut—to a record-breaking $93 billion by the end of the fiscal year. This would be more than twice the increase expected during the current fiscal year which is in midst of a business boom when government income traditionally rolls in at a good clip. The new budget envisions a 6.5 per cent increase in the Gross National Product — the total value of goods and services produced — to a record $623 billion by the end of 1964. Better Than Forecast This would be about 1 per cent higher than the rise recorded during 1963 which j turned out to be much better than most of the economists Budget does not plan closing bases abroad WASHINGTON (UPD - The $97.9 billion budget sent to Congress by President Johnson today does not anticipate further closings of U.S. bases abroad, a source said today. The Defense Department recently announced plans to close seven bases abroad, as well as some in the United States. Despite the cutbacks in de fense spending, the budget was not drawn up on the assumption that further bases would be closed, a Defense Department official indicated. skeptical Congress the smallest ; last njght {or tne construction foreign aid request since the; 0 f 21 classrooms at four Redstart of the Marshall Plan — a,lands elementary schools, total of $3.4 billion in new mil-j Eight contractors submitted itary and economic aid funds inhaled b > d s at the 8 p.m. open- fiscal 1965. i' n S w '*h costs ranging from the Johnson also split the foreign;Hartman low to a high of $447,aid budget in two. listing mili-'3I3 by James Powers (using an tary and economic aid under'alternate single campus bid different headings, in a move!method.) that appeared aimed at giving The new classrooms will be aid critics a harder target.

SELL IT TOMORROW "With low - cost Classified Adi Defense, space, international get 62 per cent WASHINGTON (UPD — Under the administrative budget which President Johnson submitted to Congress today, the federal dollar will be spent as follows during the 1965 fiscal year: Defense, space and international—62 cents. Agriculture—5 cents. Veterans—5 cents. Interest on National Debt—11 cents. Health, Labor and Welfare — 6 cents. All other government programs—11 cents. crease could be a real struggle. Smokers to ante $2.14 billion tax WASHINGTON (UPD-Presi dent Johnson quit smoking in 1955 after his heart attack, but his new budget doesn't envision many Americans taking the same step as a result of the re cent government report on the health hazards of using tobacco. The budget estimated the government would take in $2.14 billion from cigarette excise taxes in the year starting July 1. That would be $65 million more than collected during the current fiscal year. Nor did the budget makers look for a big switch to pipes and cigars. They estimated the cigar tax take at $52 million, and the manufactured tobacco tax collection at $17 million. That would be an increase of only $1 million for cigars, the same as the year before, and no change in the revenues from smoking and chewing tobacco and snuff sales. Johnson made it clear in his budget message that he expected this extra push next fiscal year to result from the stimu lative effect of the proposed tax cut. His plea for quick action on the tax bill was one of the few notes of concern expressed in the otherwise optimistic report on the nation's fiscal future. "Since expectations of a tax reduction have been incorporated into the forward planning of many business firms," he said "the effect on the economy of failure to pass the legislation swiftly might be deeply disturbing." Plan services for race driver NORFOLK, Va. (UPD — Funeral services for Joe Weather- Iy, champion race car driver, were scheduled here for Friday. The 41-year-old driver died Sunday in a Riverside, Calif., stock car race crash. Weatherly, a Norfolk native, was the current holder of the NASCAR grand national cham pionship for 1962 and 1963. The sources of the federal dol lar: Individual income taxes — 50 cents. Corporation income taxes— 26 cents. Excise taxes — 11 cents. Borrowing — 5 cents. Other revenue sources — 8 cents.

Almost everything is new in the electric utility business. New principles of power production are being pushed ahead. Ona travels ionized gas through a magnetic field—and produces electricity without the need for conventional turbine generators. Another transforms chemical energy directly into electric power; other methods convert heat directly into electric energy. Electricity is efficient and low in cost today. And scores of new developments are on the horizon in the all-electric future I Will there be enough power for my all-electric future? Water water everywhere Today you could actually drink a glass of pure, fresh water produced from the salty Pacific Ocean —at the experimental sea water distillation plant operated by Southern California Edison in connection with its steam-electric generating station near Oxnard. This is just one of the research projects vigorously conducted by Edison and other investor-owned electric companies. But the mainstream of research is devoted to the exploration of new techniques, methods and ideas for the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity. This research is part of the never-ending development of more and more low-cost electric power — and of new ways to use electricity to make your family's life safer, more pleasant, and more rewarding in the bright new all-electric future.
