Bridges Claims resident Truman's Stop-Russia Foreign Policy to Cost $12 Billion in Two Years Cites Fadors Forcing Gov't Spending Up Lucas Favorable To Defense and Foreign Aid Items By R. H. SHACKFORD WASHINGTON, Jan. 12.--(U.R)-- President Truman today put the cost of his stop-Russia foreign policy for the 1948 and 1949 fiscal years at $12,542,000,000. That is the amount he wants to spend for "international affairs and finance." Most of it is for the vast WASHINGTON, Jan. 12-- (U.E-- | foreign relief and recovery pro Republicans jumped on President gram s.

It includes also a sharply increased $1,250,000,000 for army relief in occupied countries, $750,000,000 for "other international aid programs for several countries, including China," $71,000,000 for the international refugee organization, and $132,000,000 for war damage and rehabilitation in the Philippines. These huge requests were in sharp contrast to Mr. Truman's budget message of only a year ago. Then he predicted that the time of large-scale foreign relief was "almost over." He asked for only a "modest relief program for a few countries"--$250,000,000. At that time he thought the Anglo- American zones of Germany would be self-sufficient in 1949. Increase Old Age Benefits, President Asks Crew Abandons Outgoing Army War Dead Ship NEW YORK, Jan. President Warns J Surplus Estimate , Must Apply on Debt By LYLE C. WILSON United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Jan. 12--«1B)_ President Truman today.sent to a Republican Congress, which is sure to rip it apart, a .cold war budget for spending more than $39,668,000,000 in the fiscal year 1949. That is a- spending increase of $1,941,218,622 over theX. current fiscal year. But Mr. Truman called the new budget "even more realistic and hard-boiled than the budget of 1948." He cited the international emergency, rising prices and demands of public interest as factors forcing spending up. He asked for funds to start new programs which would run into billions of dollars annually in future years--a national health insurance plan, vastly broadened old-age and unemployment insurance coverage, and universal military training among others. Third Straight Surplus The President estimated 1949 fiscal year receipts at more than $44,475,000,000 and the surplus at upward of $4,800,000,000. And he said the current fiscal year will end June 30 with a surplus of $7,482,000.000 making a two-year surplus of more than $12,000,000,000. This is the third consecutive i surplus.

It includes the European recovery program, aid to China and to several other nations. It does not include $660.000,000 sought for the atomic energy commission. Atomic energy spending is listed as a natural resource expenditure. All other expenditures proposed in the 1949 budget were estimated at approximately $21.600.000.000.
