Truman Asks
High Budget
Of Congress
Republicans Call
Sum Extravagant
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Jan. 12-Presi-
dent Truman sent to Congress to-
day a $39,699,000,000 budget, a
record-smasher for peacetime, and
Republican lawmakers reacted
swiftly with cries of "extrava-
In asking this sum to run the
government for the fiscal year be-
ginning July 1, Mr. Truman said
it is needed to (1) head off "to-
talitarian rule" in Western Eu-
rope, (2) maintain "a modern and
balanced armed force" for Amer-
ica's security and (3) strengthen
"the foundations of our democ-
racy and the happiness of our peo-

They are:

the Nation's overall tax bill.
Senator Taft (Rep., Ohio )
called the President's spending
recommendations "too higl" Sen-
ator Ferguson (Rep., Mich.) ac-
cused Mr. Truman of "bad faith."
Democrats largely went along with
the President, calling the esti-
mate reasonable at a time when,
as Senator Connally (Dem., Tex.)
put it, "the world is in a state of
The total is about $2,000,000,000
larger than what Mr. Truman
asked a year ago for the fiscal
year ending this June 30. The
biggest items: $11,000,000,000 for
national defense, $7,000,000,000
for international programs, in-
cluding European recovery aid.
"The plain fact is that our
budget must remain high," Mr.
Truman wrote in his message to
Congress, "until we have met our
international responsibilities and
can see the way clear to a peace-
ful and prosperious world."
Prudence demands it, he said.
Turning to the expected sur-
pluses, he declared the Treasury
should be in the black by $7,500,-
000,000 on June 30 this year and
by an additional $4,800,000,000 on
' June 30, 1949. The $7,500,000,-
000 figire would be the largest
surplus for any year in history.
Armed Force
Expenses Set
By President
WASHINGTON, Jan. 12-(A)-
An $11,000,000,000 fund to main-
tain armed forces of 1,423,000 men
next fiscal year and to help re-
vamp the nation's defenses for the

atomic era was urged by President,
Truman today, with a warning
that if Europe goes Red the costs
will soar.
The proposed outlay is the big-
gest single item in budget recom-
mendations Mr. Truman made to
Congress for the year beginning
next July 1. It constitutes 28 per
cent of the total, and is $279,000,-
000 above the estimated defense
spending for the present year.
The manpower strength of 1,-
423,000 recommended for the
Army, Navy and Air Force is
about the same as at present.
In his message of transmittal,
Mr. Truman said that his budget
"affords essential support to the
foreign policy of the United States
by encouraging widespread inter-
national economic cooperation
while maintaining our armed
strength." And he added:
"The budgetary implications of

WASHINGTON, Jan. 12-()-
Chairman Vandenberg (R.-Mich.)
hinted strongly today that the
Senate Foreign Relations Commit-
tee will not be bound by the $6,-
800,000,000 figure submitted by
the Truman administration as the
initial cost of the "Marshall
Noting that there are many dif-
ferences in estimates prepared by
the State Department and those
made by the Harriman Committee
which investigated this country's
ability to supply Europe's needs.
Vandenberg said:
"Does not the whole compari-
son clearly indicate that there is
nothing sacrosanct about the fig-
ure of $6,800,000,000?"
Made Changes
He added that the final figure
might be more or might be less
and said that the committee would
not "ipso facto" ruin the program
if it made some changes.
Vandenberg made his comments
during testimony by Richard M.
Bissell, Jr., executive secretary of
the Harriman Committee.
The administration, meanwhile,
pressed on three fronts its drive
for early adoption of the prob-
lem, contending that multi-billion
dollar aid now would be cheaper
in the long run than "hall-way"

The camera and its possibilities
always fascinated Bryan, but un-
like most cameramen seeking
"spot" news, he has specialized in
film studies of many parts of the
globe. As a background for the
film he will present tonight, he
familiarized himself with the
problems of Russia and set as his
goal an up-to-date photographic
documentation of the nation and
its peoples.
Because of his long standing fa-
miliarity with the Soviet scene, he
has been able to make striking
comparisons with the Russia of
five, ten and fifteen years ago. To-
night's motion picture is believed
to be the first complete full-color
feature ever made by a foreigner
in the Soviet Union.
During his trip, he paid his own
expense as an unofficial observer
for UNRRA, and for three months
he made pictures in weather
which was often twenty degrees
below zero. He moved freely
through all the devastated areas
of White Russia and the Ukraine,
coming home with a completely
uncensored film.n
Among the many interesting
subjects covered are factories,
housing developments, harbors,
schools, and collective farm life.

Representatives of the Willow
Village Housing management will
be admitted to meeting of the
Willow Village Resident Council
by invitation only, according to a
motion passed by the Council at
its meeting Sunday night. 1
Thomas Scanlon, leasee of the
garage next to the fire station in
the Village, appeared before the
Council in an effort to get a more
equitable rent standard both for
himself and for others in the Vil-
lage. Scanlon stated that the pres-
ent rent standard was unequal
and unfair and that there was
a marked difference in the rent he
paid and that paid by other gas
stations in the Village. The Coun-
cil voted to investigate the matter
and a committee was appointed.
A committee was appointed to
see the Sheriff about the enforce-
ment of patrols in the Village. At
the same time the Council ex-
pressed a desire for enforcement
of the 10 p.m. curfew for all un-
derage children in the Village.
The Council also voted to ask
the Housing Authority manage-
ment to clarify its' policy concern-
ing payment and assessment of
damages in the case of fire in any
of the dwellings.
It was announced at the meet-
ing that within a few months a
cooperative store will be set up by
some of the union locals and sev-
eral other organizations. There
will be a $2 fee charged for mem-
bers of the organizations taking
part in the establishment of the

In Holy Land
New Killings Put
Death Toll at 699
By The Associated Press
JERUSALEM, Jan. 12-Against
a background of virtual civil war
the Jews of the Holy Land went
forward today with their plans for
a provisional government for the
separate Jewish state to be estab-
lished in accordance with the de-
cision of the United Nations.
There was no surcease from the
crackle of gunfire which has
sounded day and night since the
Nov. 29 decision of the United
Nations, and new killings today
boosted the unofficial death count'
to 699 in Palestine for that pe-
Three Arabs Dead
Three Arabs were killed and
seven British soldiers were wound-
ed in a gun battle that developed_
in Beit Safafa, a Jerusalem sub-
urb, an official announcement
said. The Arabs were directing
sniper fire at an army fire brigade
fighting a blaze in a flour mill,
and the battle resulted when the1
troops tried to clear out the house
where the snipers were situated.f
Three Jews were killed in Haifa
and on the Haifa-Tel Aviv road
and two Arabs were slain in scat-
tered rural raids.
Refuse Planning
The Arabs refused to even dis-
cuss plans for the part of Pales-
tine allotted to them by the Unit-c
ed Nations. The Arab higher com-
mittee declared it would neither
recognize partition nor permit it
to be accomplished.
Details of the planning for the
provisional Jewish governmentt
were disclosed by a spokesman for(
the Jewish agency, who told aI
news conference that the blood-1
shed of the past six weeks has notc
retarded progress in any way.
He said the formation of 15
ministries of the provisional gov-
ernment, which will have an an-t
nual budget of approximately
$50,000,000, would be completed by
the end of this month.
The spokesman said that secur-~
ity provisions, including formation
of a militia, was being excluded
from the planning since "that is a
matter for Hagana at present and
will be integrated when the time
Haganga is the Jewish militia.

Oklahoma Must Open
Law School to NegroF
The Supreme Court held today4
that Negroes are entitled nottonly
to receive in State institutions any
sort of educational training that
Whites can get in such schools,
but also to get it as quickly as anyI
other group.
Strict application of the order
would give the state of Oklahoma
just three days to admit a Negro
girl, Ada Lois Sipuel, to the Law
School at the all White Univer-i
sity of Oklahoma, or set up sep-
arate and equal facilities for her.
A new semester inbwhich white
students can enter begins Janu-

ary 15. There is no: Oklahoma
State law school for Negroes now.
The applicant already has been
waiting two years while the case
was in -litigation.
Speed was the main point in to-
day's ruling. Negroes' right to
equal facilities, and to have them
in institutions of their own states,1
had been affirmed by the high
court in a Missouri case 10 years
Counsel for Miss Sipuel con-
tended in the appeal that the Mis-
souri ruling should be made
stronger on the issue of time, and
the high court complied.
