**«MARCH OF TIME •t not •Dtroma ot nut PRESIDENTS ANNUAL BUDGET MESSAGE— WASHINGTON-.- Before taking up the budget of the next fisVal year (1939) in a special message read to congress last week, the President reviewed the budget for fiscal 1938 ending next June, estimated receipts at $6,320,000,000 expenditures at $7.408.000,000 a 1938 net deficit of $1,088,000. The change in the past year from an estimated "layman's balance" to a billion- dollnr deficit was caused largely by an over-estimate of Income tax revenues, nn under-estlmatc of the possibilities of Recession. For 1938, the President forecast receipts of $5,913,000.000. expenditures of $6,869,000,000. a 1939 net deficit of $950,000.000. On the outgo side the President tentativelv set down defense at just under a billion, relief at just over a billion then added: "Due to world conditions over which this nation has no control, I may find it necessary to request additional appropriations for national defense." .. Trend - Only comfort the President could give Congress was that the trend of deficits had turned downward from the 1934 peak. But 1939 will bring the Government's ninth consecutive deficit—three of them Herbert Hoover's; six Franklin Roosevelt's. Outgo. Biggest single item in the 1989 budget (as in all budgets) Is the cost of past and future wars: The Army and Navy will get at least $991,000,000; Veterans' pensions and benefit* come to $539,000,000: and $976,000,000 will go for Interest on the public debt, nearly half of which was contracted | n an attempt to make the world safe for democracy. Other Items. A minimum $1,226,000.000 for relief including the C. C. C.; $586,000,000 for farmers$933,000.000 for Social Security and railroad retirement; $619,000,000 for public works, which includes everything from post offices to TVA. The actual cost of operating the permanent civil establishment- executive offices, etc.—is a mere $760.000,000. Income. Biggest single source of Federal revenue is income taxes. It is hoped that income taxes wil! yield $2,414,000,000. The other big source is miscellaneous internal' revenue, budgeted for 1939 at $2190,000,000. Economy. On only one class of expenditures did the President request Congressional economy—Pork. He wants congressmen! to forego •date of the usual appropriations for post offices, highways, reclamation projects, river and harbor developments. * National Debt- During the 1920's the debt was cut from Its post-War high of $24,000.000,000 to less Ofan $17,000,000,000, By the end of the fiscal year 1939 the estimated debt Will be $38,028.000,000. This is an increase of $21,727,000,000 since 1931 which represents the total of the nine accumulated deficits.

Call 230 The Algona Upper Des Moines "Buy At Home—It Pays Dividends'' A WOMAN'S TONGL'E, AND A UFE SENTENCE- SALAMANCA, Spain: In outwitting a dictator to get one's husband out of his clutches, the first rule (3 to keep quiet until success is complete. U. S. Airman Harold ("Whitey") Dahl, captured by the Rightists while fighting 1 for the Leftists, sentenced to death, then reprieved, had reason last week tc wish that his wife had not burbled: "I used on General Franco all the sob technique I learned in my years on the stage." In appealing by letter to Franco to save Whitey, Mrs. Dahl enclosed a picture of her handsome self in a low-cut evening dress, afterward claimed to have received a reply in which the general wrote: "your obedient servant kisses your foot." To General Franco, who is a married man. this may have proved embarrassing. While Edith Dahl has worked up in a lew weeks from H Riviera night club to one in Paris, Whitey has remained in custody at Salamanca. Suddenly last week the general's headquarters announced that Airman Dahl'a reprieve was not a pardon, as had been thought, hut an "automatic sentence to life imprisonment." -NO ADMITTANCE FOR "KID TIGER"— ANDORRA: The hoary, leather- faced council members and First Syndic (president) of the tiny 190- square mile territory of Andorra, world's oldest republic nestling atop the Pyrenees bewteen Spain and France, gathered in solemn conclave last week to decide wether to admit to their country a tough- mugged gentleman who styled himself Alex Abraham Sikorski, alias 'Kid Tiger", one-time trigger man for Gangster Al Capone. Meantime, at the French border village of Bourg-Madaijie, Mr. Sikorski offered to build Andorra a nodern sanatorium for its 8,000 inhabitants, Informod by French rustics that hu could not get to Andorra through the mountain roads, buried 20 feet under snow Units, lie snorted: "If 1 had my IB-cylinder car which cost $32,000 I'd go through these roads like a tank!" By wuy of general manifesto, he announced: "I have lived in exile in 15 European countries in flight from the U. .S. income-tax collectors. If Andorra refuses me, the only other European country I may visit is Liechtenstein . . . I'm a real gangster, it's true, but I'm no crira- •nal, and I want to remain what I have always been honest. Europeans make a big mistake when they give honesty a meaning it never had. I've never kidnapped anybody." Impressed by these displays Andorra sent back its reploy, "Wo Ad- mittance." But the Spanish Leftist Government, needing good trigger men, offered Mr. Sikorskl haven In Barcelona, and French gendarmes escorted *lm to the International bridge to Fuigcerda, set him on his way. Chicago police and Washington Income tax sleuths said they have never heard of Alex ("Kid Tiger") Sikorskl. Yugoslav police believe it was he who,turned up in Belgrade last year boasting he was a faithful henchman of the late John Dili-, inger on his way to "get" Anna Sage, the Rumanian-born "Woman In Red" who put the finger on Dlll- Ing-er. In Europe It can be as much fun to pretend to be an American ?nngster as to pretend in the U. S. to be a prince. NO DROUGHT, SAYS RAIN MAN— WASHINGTON: "America's Farmers," said a United Press dispatch from 'Washington last week eed not worry about another serous drought until 1975." Reason- Dr. Charles Greeley Abbot. Dr. Abbot, a grey, kind-looking man with a conspicuous mustache s the secretary (i. e. head) of the mlthsonian Instiution, a dlstin- uished authority on the sun, a ong-time observer of variations in olar radiation. Dr. Abbot believes hat on solar radiation depend tem- erature and precipitation on earth te has found in the solar variations number of perodicities which fit into a 23-year cycle and an even more important cycle of 46 years Matching the cycles with actual weather records has provided, he declares, partial confirmation. Test- ifying last week on the Smithsonian s budget needs before a House appropriations sub-committee, he gave It as his opinion that the U. S is emerging from a drougfft period which began about 1930. "We are, I believe, on the very verge of recovery from the drought or the last 46-year period," said Dr. Abbot. "We have no expectation of another one of such great consequence until 1675, although . . there will be a minor one during the decade 1950-60."
