PAftl TWttNTt ALTON ftVRNtNO TfcLKOHAPM FRIDAY, JANUARY 20,1MO of 4 Truman Budgets too Low Congress Has Added $3.8 Billion in 4 Years By CHAftLfcS MOLONV WASHINGTON, .Tan. 20. (/Pi- Congress \s locking with calls for cutting President Truman's 512.439,000,000 spending budget, but the cold record shows that this is easier said than done. Government spending has wound Up greater than Mr. Trumnn predicted in three of his four hud- gets for previous years although there has been some clamor for cuts every time. The Increase for the four years totals $3,869,000,000. ' J* Responsobillty for after-budget «£ Increases in spending is disputable :£' because: •» 1. Congress has sometimes vol.- •;&• «d to spend more on certain things ,~j than Mr. Truman recommended. J* 2. Mr. Truman has sometimes *« jiome through with new or ex** 'Jfllnded spending proposals after his Initial budget message. 3. Circumstances unforsern by ' ejther the President or Congress • aemetimes knock initial spending .estimates haywire. •• Examples of this last, kind ln- jjilude cold war developments, which have sent costs soaring, nnd 'ho 1949 business decline, which sho up subsidy outlays while knocking down tax revenue estimates. Mr. Truman's new budget for the 12 months starting next July 1 '!« the most costly peacetime pro gram ever laid down by a presiden at the opening of Congress. It foreshadows a $5,133,000,000 deficit unless taxes nre raised. Yet it anticipates an !£858,000,00( or 2 percent, cut under 1he current spending rate of §43,297,000,000 : The current rote Itself is the out', growth of a $41,858,000,000 program Mr. Truman submitted a year ago The President's claim of a cut under current year rates depends heavily on two estimates that be ' laHmltted to be—necessarily—based on guesses: '1. That veterans cost, will cle- ;cllne $825,000,000, largely because 'fewer veterans will apply fot .•** Spooling and other readjustment ** Tkenefits. '2. That outlays for farm price •upports will drop $581,000,000. " 'The President said in bis message that Congress has ns much rcspon slbility for government, spending as he has, for "nil expenditures flow from obligationnl authority • »nacted by the Congress." • - - He reminded Congress, loo, that „,, $12,100,000,000, or 29 percent, of *i his spending total was authorized ;'* at earlier sessions of Congress, put- ''• ting it beyond the reach of "ccon- i orny drives." '* iMr. Truman this time beat Con- .5 gross to the punch on one program g that has added $800,000,000 on paper to his past two budgets and has added that much to congressional claims ot '"spending cuts." That program was universal mil itary training. Mr. Truman mentioned It favorably in passing, but quit anticipating Its approval by Congress and dropped It altogether from his spending estimates. Here is the record on the four previous budgets Mr. Truman has {submitted: •••January 1946: Proposed spend-Wg total $35,860,000,000; actual to- "til at year's end «39,289,000,000; Increase $3,429,000,000, January 1497: Proposed $;17,528,000,000; actual $36,066,000,000; decrease $1,462,000,000.

Allies Dislike • German Policy .,- FRANKFURT, Germany, Jan. 20. (JF> — Top Allied officials arc deeply concerned because the West 'Carman government Is neglecting .threatening domestic problems for a preoccupation with international affair*. • Latest thorn in the Allied tlesU is the Bonn government's bitter at' tacks on French refusal to give Germany back the Saar valley and •Its rich coal mines. The Saar, which through history has swapped from French to German hands and back again, now hag an autonomous domestic government under French control. The French early this week said final action on the valley's status would not be taken before the German peace treaty is written. ,• 'American, British and French officials don't want to criticize openly the West German regime they helped create. But privately they say that they feel West German politicians are hurting their own cause by not buckling down to the problems gnawing at the area's vitals. . They point out there is no possibility of settling the Saar problem .now. The Allies have agreed that any change In the valley's status lUUsl await the peace ttealy. The Saar dispute is not the first Instance of what the Allies consider undue attention to international relations. Before this arose, th» Adenauer government's main efforts were directed toward halting factory dismantling and Internationalization of the Ruhr valley's important industrial Installations. . . They explain that the whole government structure could be brought crashing down by failure to solve the mounting unemploy the big trade deficit and the FIREMEN BATTLE TO RESCUE TRAPPED BOY—A fireman is visible (upper right) through smoke-filled window dunnp, the height of a futile attempt lo Kevin fLiherly, 10. trapped m a fire which r wvept through a three-story tenement at Boston.
