SIX PAGES '46 Budget Lowest in 3 Years F'DR Message Requests 83 Billions, But Says Amount Spent Depends On Progress of War Washington, Jan. 9. (AP) President Roosevelt sent to today an 83-billion- doilar budget that might swing more than 10 billion doiJars up or down. It all depends on the war—and the' president refused to predict when the shooting will stop in Eu- roix; or anywhere else. "Myoniv prediction," he told con-J Br«s. •'is'that our enemies will be I totally defeated before we lay down ,* our arms." • At a moment when "fighting all ovei the globe reaches a climax of fur>'," Mr. Roosevelt sent up his aririual budget message for the fiscal year 1946 which starts ne.xt July I. ton-est in Three Years ;Ia it. ho estimated total govern- meht^pending at 83 billions. That would be the lowest in three years. It's nearly 17 billion below the record spending of 100 billion in the fiscal year 1945 which is now half over. 'He based the 83-billion figure on 1946 Budget Highlights Washington, Jan. 9. (AP)— Salient sentences from President Roosevelt's budget mes.sage to congress: My only prediction Ls that our enemies will be totally defeated before we lay down our arms. The main job now is that of replenishing equipment and supplies and of providing our fighting men with the most up- to-date weapons which can be contrived. . . . Untimely relaxation in war production spells greater sacrifice In human lives and delays victorj'. We should make a great mistake If, in our military and budgetary planning, we underestimate the task of defeating Japan. . . . Our task in Europe will not end with the cessation of hostilities there. The war will not be won unless we accept our share- of responsibility for the administration of occupied territories and for relief and rehabilitation in the liberated areas. <:HIEF ITE.MS IN BUDGET • Washington.

Three large i'em.? which are grouing—benefits to veterans, interest on the public debt, and re- liinds to taxpayers. T*fccs So Chances Mr. Roosevelt, taking no chances with war uncertainties, said he plans to ask congress for 87 billion dollars in appropriations, of which 73 billions will be for the war. These appropriations, he said, will mdke sure that the armed forces can make adequate plans to keep fight- j ing all over tho world. If the war develops favorably the left-over funds will be set aside and reported to congro .vi. A wartime (agriculture) budget . . . does not fully reflect desirable long-time objectives. In the future, we must develop a program to eliminate malnutrition and rural poverty. I hope that the congress will give early consideration to extension and improvement of our social secuirty system and will reexamine the financial basLs of the program. C. of C.

(AP) — Red army troops have halted the big German counterattack northwest of Budapest and considerably slowed the attack beating in on the west of the Hungarian capital, front dispatches said today. • Within 24 hours, the SoMets may recapture the initiative against the Nazis who have struck to within 15 miles of Budapest on the northwest, reports said. Hand-to-hand fighting meanwhile was stepped up inside the capital. Soviet forces hitting along the north bank of the Danube approached within gun range of Komaron, a springboard of the Nazi relief drive toward Budapest. A three-mile advance up the iJanube yesterday carried Marshal Rodion Y. Mallnovsky's troops to a point less than seven miles from Komarom, key communications center for the region northwest of Budapest. There the Russians stood less than 50 miles east of the Austrian border and 57 southeast of Bratislava, Slovaklan capital. NarU Shift to West Dispatches .said German troops last reported only 15 miles northwest of Budapest were .shifting the weight of their attack .southward m an apparent effort to cut through to the Hungarian capital from due west. The German.'! were said to be using "large" tank forces. A Russian commimique said Red army forces disabled or destroyed 90 German tanks - in that area In one day's fighting. (A Berlin broadcast today said Col. Gen. Heinz Guderian. German army chief of staff and Nazi commander-in-chief on the ea.stem front, had visited the fighting lines "at the western approaches" to Budapest. The FCC recorded the broadcast.)

I New York, Jan. 9.- (AP»—Field Marshal Karl Rudolf; Gerd Von Runstedt's great gamble to .smash the Allied inva.sion armies failed for two rea.sons; 1. His panzer and infantry divisions never were able to swing nortli and capture Liege. 2. Von Run.stedt underestimated Lt. Gen. Omar Nelson Bradley's fighting men. The army's epic defense of its great bases and .supply arteries was the turning point in the surprise German offensive, which caught the First army off balance. Would Have Been Trapped Had Von Runstedt crashed through the American on the northern flank of the salient the entire army, the American Ninth army and the British and Canadian armies would have been threatened with destruction. Certainly the Rrst army would have been trapped. The German drive to the west toward Sedan was the least threatening. Von Runstedt couid not continue driving west and leave formidable American armies in his rear as a continual threat. Sooner or later he had to swing either to the north-against the First army or south to envelop Lieut. Gen. George S. Patton's Third army. He chose to hurl the weight of his attack north against Lieut. General Hodges' First army, pointing toward Cologne and the Ruhr. Shoald Be Grateful And the American people can be grateful there were such veteran divisions as the F^rst infantry divis- - ion. the Ninth infantry division, the Fourth infantry diyision and the Third armored division waiting to meet that massed assault. They had the "konw how" with which to stop the drive 18 miles short of its goal and litter the frozen fields and roads with German dead and knock- cd-out tanks. The German offensive has co.«t the Americans heavily in lives and materiel—and has disrupted the winter campaign—but it failed to achieve Von Run.stedt's alms of destroying our arinies. Now his own divisions are threatened with destruction. Too Much Speed On Curve Caused Challenger Wreck Washington, Jan. 9.

Yanks Fight Fiercely for Road Key Germans On Defensive Along Northern Front; Bradley Says Western Gamble May Cost Nazis By WILLIAM L. RYAN (.\,iKnrinfe(t I'rHs^ KM.t-.r ,. Field Marshal Karl v(jii Rundstedt's gamble in the west, the counteroffensive in the Ardennes, may have cost the Nazis the ability to prolong the war, Lt. Gen. Omar N. Bradley, commander of the U. S. Twelfth army group, said today, but he warned that much fighting still lay ahead. As Bradley spoke. American troops fought savagely for Sami4e, three miles northeast of La Roche on the severed main German e.scapo road in the Belgian bulge, in a tank battle in a blindini; snowstorm. Other Americans in the Belgian bulge surged forward two miles in the northwest sector to within a mile of La Roche, kfy roiid junction, amid Indications the Gcrman.s were thinning out on the western tip of the salient. A staff officer at headquarters said, however, there was no sign of a general German withdrawal at yet. The Germaas were declared on the defensive all along the So-mlle northern flank of the salient, fighting to keep open the one remaining escape route— the Houffalize-St. Vlth road. The U. S. First army was four miles from the road and was pounding it with artillery fire. On the southern flank of the Ardennes salient, German counterattacks drove the U. S. Third army back a mile on a three-mile front west of Bastogne. Elsewhere in the War In Italy German troops have made a stand along the southern bank of the river Reno east of the Valli de Comacchio lagoon, after withdrawing five miles from San Alberto in the past two d .nys. British troops in Greece, pursuing Elas forces retreating from Athens, have occupied Thebes, forward base of the leftwing guerrilla units about 48 road miles northwest of the capital, after entering through slight opposition. Inside Germany, new and possibly significant signs of anti-Nazi resistance appeared to be springing up, a dispatch from Switzerland said. This dispatch quoted trustworthy private sources a.v .saying the communists were persistently active; that busines-s men were beginning to feel Hitler and the Nazis go; and that large groups of foreign Plave labor were hiding out. More than 700 heavy bombers blasted German rail and road lines in and around the Belgian bulge yesterday against weak opposition.
