Nixon
By AP and UPI
President Nixon told congres-
sional leaders and a POW-family
group yesterday that his fiscal
1974 budget will total $268.7 bil-
lion and carry a deficit of about
$12 billion.
Although the budget won't go to
Congress until Monday, the White

Slit U.S.
ATLANTA UP) -- The death toll'
from London flu and other respira-
tory illnesses rose sharply for a
third straight week as outbreaks of
the virus were reported by four
more states, the Center for Dis-
ease Control reported yesterday.
Added to the list of states re-
1ot° porting flu outbreaks were Missis-
sippi, Minnesota, Idaho and Alas-
into ka. Twenty - three other states,
es in all parts of the country, had al-
s ready reported outbreaks.
The center said the Pacific
states of Oregon, Washington and
California remain hardest hit by
flu while the situation has eased in
the Mountain states, middle At-
lantic and south-central regions.
A spokesperson said a survey
of 122major cities showed deaths
for the week ending Jan. 20 to be
908 - 328 more fatalities than
would be expected during a non-
epidemic period.
But thus far, said the center,
n the the flu siege appears less severe
than the Hong Kong flue outbreak
fo last year. The center said that for
ifffo the first three weeks of 1972, the
on B. death toll from flu and other res-
le last spiratory illnesses was running 757
from above the epidemic level. The fig-
notice ure for the first three weeks of
cars this year was 669.
y per- Major outbreaks have been re-
ported in Boston, Chicago, New
to the York, Pittsburgh, SanuFrancisco
their and the District of Columbia.

esahe are similar to those of Hong Kong
Clark flu, but generally less severe and

House confirmed plans to dis-
mantle the Office of Economic Op-
portunity and a number of other
agencies.
Nixon let the budget total "slip"
as he talked to directors of the
National League of Families of
American Prisoners and Missing in
Southeast Asia.
"I'm in the midst of one of our
more difficult meetings - the be-
ginning of a new battle, the battle
of the budget," Nixon told the
group.
Senate Democratic Leader Mike
Mansfield (D-Mont.) emerged from
a budget briefing at the White
House and said the budget total
would be $268.7 billion with a de-
ficit of $12 billion.
This would be an increase of
approximately $19 billion in spend-
ing over the current fiscal year,
which ends June 30. The $12 bil-;
lion deficit is a sharp reduction
from the current financial year's
$25 billion projected deficit.
The White House announced that
Nixon will make a nationwide ra-
dio address Sunday at 6 p.m. to
discuss the new budget "and its
impact on the nation's economy
and economic stability.''
The flurry of official leaks overi
the budget, plus Nixon's Sunday
remarks, heightened anticipation
that the main battle between the
White House and Congress this
year will be over federal spend-
ing.
A number of federal agencies
are due for drastic cutbacks, or
even elimination, in Nixon's ef-
fort to bring the massive federal
budget under rein.
The only way to avoid a tax in-
crease and a big resurgence of in-
flation is to bring the budget un-
der control by slashing certain
programs Nixon's economic ad-
vers have said.
vnsfil told newsmen that
Congress should take the initiative
this year and stay within a budget
ceiling drawn by the White House.
Mansfield's statement was the
first official word that the admin-
istrationapparently plans to re-
new its request for a legal ceiling
on spending, a battle it lost last
year. Mansfield added he. was
"sorry to note" the Pentagon is
due to get about $79 billion, an in-
crease from the current fiscal
year.
He said that spending for wel-
fare, medical research and aid to
t

education will be higher on a per-
centage basis than defense.
Of the total figure some $202 bil-
lion or 74 per cent of spending is
uncontrollable, leaving about $66
billion in spending that is con-
trollable by Congress and Nixon,
he said.
Others who conferred on the
budget with President Nixon in-
cluded House speaker Carl Albert,
(D-Okla.), minority leader Gerald
Ford, (R-Mich.), Senate Minority
Leader Hugh Scott, (R-Pa.), and
Vice President Spiro Agnew.
Both Mansfield and Albert said
Congress would set its own bud-
getary priorities which would not
necessarily coincide with those of
the administration.
Mansfield and Albert said no
mention was made at the White
House meeting of the specifics of
the domestic budget Nixon will
send to Congress on Monday.
Although Nixon gave only broad
details during his meeting, other
administration officials said the
new budget would cut deeply into
"Great Society" programs the
President considers no longer nec-
essary.
