House and senate budget makers' agreed today on a $2,500,000,000 cut in President Truman's budget. That would leave a potential surplus of $10,100,000,000 for tax and debt reduction. Because of the .admittedly tentative nature of their estimates, hpwever, the congressional spokes^man shied away from concluding: that their budget would leave room- for the full $6,500,000,000 tax reduction voted by the house. · . ' The senate intends to keep the tax reduction bill, on ice until- it gets a better line on whether, the budget cut will stick. ! Agree at Meeting i . A n agreement on the proposed budget cut was reached at a meet-'; ing of the 20-man subcommittee : of the house-senate budget group" i Its recommendations will be sub- j milled to the full 102-member.
