30 1934 Continuance Is Foreseen The secretary foresaw a continu ance of heavy operating losses due to emergency expenditures He es timated that the treasury would go farther into debt during the fiscal year 1936 when expenditures would amount to offset in part by receipts of resulting in a deficit of 54528508 970 and swelling the gross public debt to A sharp paring down in emer gency expenditure items in 1936 was forecastbut an expected out f bring tal of such expenditures to 011475 or only half a million les than expected in the present fisca period The secretary found a cheerin possibility in the estimate that in come taxes in the fiscal year 193 would improve by ove 1935 and amount to This he said would reflect the fur ther gains because of the moderate y higher incomes anticipated for the calendar years 1934 and 1935 Not Reflected Promptly Morgenthau pointed out that in view of the nature of the federal tax structure it was not to be expected hat revenues would reflect prompt y an anticipated improvement in business For example he said coliec ions of income taxes during the atter half of the fiscal year 1935 will be based on the business vol me of the calendar year 1934 and ncome tax collections during the seal year 1936 will be based on the olume of business of the calendar ears 1934 and 1935 Therefore it is anticipated that the rising level of business activity will increase income tax receipts only moderately during the remain der of the fiscal year 1935 and the fiscal year 1936 Certain miscellan eous internal revenue receipts not ably
