S.'Russians Approve a Record Budget By STANLEY JOHNSON MOSCOW (AP) — The Soviet government today unveiled the biggest budget in its history, with spending increased for almost everything except defense. Deputy Finance Minister Vasilli Garbuzov told 1,335 members of the Supreme Soviet — the nation's parliament — that revenue would be 772,100,000,000 rubles and expenditures 744,800,000,000 rubles, leaving a surplus of 27,300,000,000 rubles. Percentage Reduced Defense expenditures were set at 96,100,000.000 rubles — exactly the same as last year, which I means the percentage of the budget devoted to defense has actual- j I ly been reduced. j At the official exchange rale, j the ruble is worth 25 cents. But j it is difficult to fix the exact defense expenditure since some military items may be listed under civilian categories. Rocket research, for example, may come under the heading of scientific research. Amount Misleading The total government expendi- lure also is misleading to westerners. Under the Communist system of government ownership of all production and distribution facilities, the budget includes economic costs which arc usually the burden of private corporations in non- Communist countries. Deputy Premier Aleksei Kosy- gin predicted that tho Soviet, economy will overtake that of the United Slates "in a relatively short span of time." Garbu/.ov reported that the government's revenue in l!)."i!l will total 723.3G!).150,000 rubies and ex- ' penditures 7(>7.(i:57,f!«7.000 ruble?!. ; leaving a surplus of 15,731,272,000 , rubles. j The financial planners budgeted |32'a billion rubles for scientific development next, year. 15.4 per cent more than in 1059. j For culture and education the figure was 102 billion; health and i physical culture, 47'a billion; so- j da! security, 9» billion; construction of apartments. 47 : 't billion.

After Markets Close The ruling, however, will not be released until about 4:45 p. m. because appellate courts here usually wait until after the country's slock markets close to hand down decisions which affect stock prices. Meanwhile, 7,500 Kaiser em- ployes returned to work at plants in California under a new agreement which will be in force until June 30, 1961. Kaiser, me nation's ninth biggest producer, pierced the industry's solid front Monday night by signing a separate peace with the union after nearly five hours of behind-doors negotiations in Washington. But the other 11 big companies said Kaiser's defection would not affect their determination to resist what they termed an inflationary settlement. Terms Announced The new contract calls for an added 10 cents in fringe benefits for the first year and 12!;. cents more the second year, including a 7-cents-an-hour pay boost. Company officials declined to say what Kaiser workers made before the strike began. The industry-wide average was $3.11 an hour.

India Accepts China's Offer On Prisoners NEW DELHI, India 'AP)—India today accepted Red China's offer to hand over 10 Indian policemen captured last week in a clash on the remote frontier. A government spokesman said the Indian ambassador to Peiping has asked the Red Chinese to name a place and date for transfer of the prisoners in the Ladakh region bordering Tibet. „ The bodies of nine Indian policemen killed in the same encounter with Chinese troops will be turned over at the same time. The spokesman said it was assumed the transfer will take place near the scene of the clash. It appeared certain the place of transfer will be a touchy issue. Red China claims the region where the encounter occurred. India says the area is 40 miles inside Indian territory. India's acceptance of the offer followed Peiping's announcement that Red China wants to settle its border dispute with New Delhi peacefully. Peiping called on India to maintain "the long existing status quo" between the two nations, but made clear it does not want India interfering with Communist troops operating in territory India claims as its own.

"This condition is rather dangerous in view of the fact that each one of our wells is equipped with automatic devices for connecting the pumping and disconnecting, and could cause very serious damage which would be rather expensive to repair," the mayor pointed out. He advised that a city ordinance prohibits the use of rifles, revolvers or any firearms within the corporate limits and violators could be fined up to $100 or given a jail sentence of 30 days. "We urge that parents check very closely the use of firearms by their children and prohibit their use in that area," Mayor Neu said.

Preliminary hearing on the charges is pending in justice court, the sheriff said. Martin was arrested Monday night after additiona 1 evidence had been secured. Martin was released on a similar charge here last Thursday at a hearing before W. J. Schmich, justice of the peace. The dismissal last week was made because of lack of evidence, Justice Schmich said. At the time of the hearing last week it was alleged that Roger Hollander, 19, Manilla, bound to the grand jury on a similar charge, had repudiated a previous written statement that implicated Martin in the burglary, the justice said.
