COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 28, 1953 President Faces Most Serious Year in 1954 By JAMES MAKI.OW , WASHINGTON (AP) — President Eisenhower has returned from vacation to face one the most serious years of his life.

All over Washington these days officials are busy preparing the budget Eisen hower will hand Congress in Jan uary. He cut government expenses in 1953. He says he wants to cut them more in 1954. The biggest expense, and therefore the juiciest target for cutting, is in national defense. But in 1953 the Russians claimed to have produced the hydrogen bomb. Eisenhower must decide whether national safety can stand any further cuts in defense. A country which talks tough, as this one has been, while reducing money on armaments, will hardly impress the Russians or assure American Allies. In 1954. through taxes which will end automatically or be reduced automatically, the government faces B loss of billions of dollars. Heavy cute in expenses will be necessary to overcome that loss unless, perhaps, the administration can find a new kind of tax, maybe a sales tax, to make up the lost revenue. Party May Split But 1954 is an election year—for all 435 House seats and one third of the Senate — and any administration request for a new tax might be enough to split the Republican party, some of whose members Were bitter in 1953 when Eisenhower asked extension of the excess profits tax. A bad business recession in 1954 would knock the administration's plans for reduced savings out the window. Eisenhower would have to think of remedies fast, even though they meant spending a lot of government money to start the satisfaction of the people in the Allied countries, than at any time since World War II.

American Allies would feel it. Russia would have a chance to make more capital, through dis- the confer- cnce bofiin. No one here talks optimistically about such a conference solving the Korean case. Khec a 1'rohlem A conference stalemate would mean this country must keep troops in Korea indefinitely, and on the alert against a new attack. At Hie sami 1 time Eisenhower will have his hands full .seeing that South Korean President Syngman Rhce tlopsn't upset the apple-cart by renewing the war himself. Renewed war there might spread much funVier than Korea. Since Ihe Russians have made faster progress in hydrogen bomb development than was predicli.'d here, Eisenhower has a choice: Stand firm against the Communists until they show by deeds they want peace, or try to work out a disarmament agreement with them.

'We couldn't cash our warrants therefore we stayed at home and when we were able to cash them | we had so much money we didn't inow what to do with it." Miss Rogers has been house manager for nine years at the 'teacher- age and it must be a lot of fun for .he 14 regulars and the seven who .ake their meals there. The home of the late Mr. and' Mrs. R. E. Lee Wilson was con- j verted into a home for the teach- ] ers. The PTA furnished and redec-1 orated the old home-place and' here's plenty of room for every- j body. Usually two share a room, the of bridge and canasta are played and everybody feels perfectly free to raid the Ice box. Each week one of tl-.B teachers takes charge of the menu, ordering groceries and at the end of the month the expenses are divided among them and it rarely ever runs over $50 a month. There is perfect harmony. The one .who is in charge each week is responsible for planning the meals.
