Russell lKlan, Buses
Offer New Opposition
WASHINGTON MP)-Senator Richard Russell (D-Ga.) yesterday
threw down the gauntlet to advocates of civil rights legislation who
contend this is their victory year.
Sen. Russell, leader of the Southern forces and an acknowledged
master of parliamentary tactics, told a reporter he is "well aware of
the fact that there is great political pressure for the passage of these
misnamed civil rights bills."
But he said if the measures reach the Senate floor, they will run
into resolute opposition from senators who, he said, are determined
to defend "the constitutional rights of the states and the people."
Past attempts to pass civil rights measures have been defeated by
by Southern filibusters, or the threats of filibusters, but Sen. Hubert

I e's Budget
To Appear
WASHINGTON (MP)-A balanced
budget calling for record peace-
time spending of around 72 bil-
lion dollars is expected to be sent
to Congress Wednesday by Presi-
dent Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Offsetting this three-billion-dol-
lar increase over the current rate
of government spending-much of
it for military purposes-the Pres-
ident is expected to forecast a rise
in revenues to about 73 billion dol-
lars f6r the fiscal year starting
July 1.
This anticipated surplus is not
enough to hold much hope for
any cut in individual income tax-
es this session of Congress.
Opposes Tax Reduction
The administration has made
known that it opposes any tax re-
ductions while inflationary pres-
sures are on unless there is a
prospective surplus of three to
four billion dollars.
Instead, its is expected Pres.
Eisenhower will recommend that
thE'surplus be applied to the 272-
billion-dollar national debt, on
which interest payments are now
running nearly 7% billion dollars
a year.
The 707-million-dollar surplus
which the administration present-
ly expects to have when the cpr-
rent 1957 fiscal year ends June 30
would be the second stragiht for
Pres. Eisenhower.
Government spending has been
climbing steadily the last two
years and is expected to reach a
record peacetime high of $69,100,-
000,000 or more in this fiscal year.
Figure To Be Increased
This was the figure given in a
revised forecast last August and
it undoubtedly will be increased
in Pres. Eisenhower's new predic-
tions next week.
Thus a hike of around three bil-
lion dollars, which some informed
sources predict in the new budget,
would place spending at the fifth
highest level in history, exceeded
only by three years of World War
II and President Harry S. Tru-
man's $74;300,000,000 Korean War
year budget of 1953.

Humphrey (D-Minn.) and other
supporters of the legislation say
they have excellent prospects of
victory this year.
Earlier this week a highly in-
fluential Senate Democrat, who
was unwilling to be quoted by
name, said the outlook is that civil
rights legislation will be ,passed
fairly early in the present Senate
Last year the' House passed but

headed by Senator James Eastland
(D-Miss.) never acted on the civil

ident Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Klan Fights Back . ..
TALLADEGA, Ala. (o)-A Ku
Klux Klan leader yesterday, said
the end of racial segregation on
Montgomery, Ala., buses "is the
last concession we will make."
But the Rev. Alvin Horn, once
indicted for murder in a night-
rider killing, said the Klan's weap-
on in the fight for segregation will
be votes and education, not vio-
The KKK leader said in an in-
terview that a great influx- of
members has swelled the ranks of
the Klan since the U.S. Supreme
Court's ruling against segregation'
on city buses last year.
"And even before that, the
court's school integration ruling
helped swell our ranks," he said.

Seats Assigned'. ,
lahassee bus drivers began assign-
ing riders to seats yesterday as the
city's transit system moved back
to normal after an 11-day shut-
down caused by racial violence.
There were few riders and no
incidents in the first experiences
with a new seat assigning plan or-
dered into effect by the City Com-
mission to reduce friction and pre-
serve peace.
As passengers boarded buses,
drivers pointed to seats which they
were to occupy-a requirement of
the new operating rules.
In determining where passengers
are going to sit, the drivers are
supposed to take into account such
factors as weight distribution and
the need for preventing violence.

LONDON OP)-It looked last
night as if Prime Minister Har-
old Macmillan's new Cabinet will
be largely a regrouping of the vet-
erans of the Eden regime-the old
model with a new paint job.
The list of callers and unoffic-
ial reports indicated Prime Min-
ister Macmillan is concentrating
more on shifting ministers who
served with him under Sir An-
thony Eden than on finding new
men for Britain's top political jobs.

pected until late today on how

tries for the troubles that lie

Prime Minister Macmillan has
arranged an audience with Queen
Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace
tonight to give her his selections
for cabinet and other high gov-
ernmental posts.
By tradition, British monarchs
approve without question the se-
lections made by the Prime Min-
ister. The best chances for promo-
tion or of holding their posts ap-
peared to be Richard A. Butler,
