WASHINGTON, Dec. 9-(A')-The
president's declaration for a two-
year increase in taxes riveted the
attention of congress today upon
the budget message with its revela-
tions of pared ex esditures and
proposedi new revenues.
Reading of President Hoover's
message transmitting the annu al
balance sheet of government, mark-
ed heavily in the red this year,- took
first place on the prpgrams of both,
senate and house.
After it both branches allowed
themselves a liberal indulgence up-
on controversial issues and oratory.
For the first time in decades the
majority party in the house brought
in a proposal for full and immedi-
ate debate of the president's rec-
ommendations for broader credit,
revised banking laws and the rest.
The senate still had with it the rid-
dle of organization, brought about
by the refusal of independents to
support George Moses of New
Hampshire for president pro tem-
The amount proposed to be raised
by new taxes was the most sought-
after recommendation of the bud-
get message. Mr. Hoover has set
the estimated deficit at the close of
the next fiscal year at $4,400,000,000
covering three years of operation
with insufficient revenues. Some of
the deficit is to be met, in the ad-
ministration plan, by borrowing, to
avoid overtaxing the country.
The airing of views on the many
projects which the president has
urged to help stabilize the economy
of national life, was decided upon
by the Democratic house leaders,
largely because they are not organ-
ized to proceed with business.
With virtually no committees
constituted and with much reas-
signment of members to be achiev-
ed, the majority party is not ready
to recommend legislation.,
