The spending blueprint, which covers the 1963 fiscal year starting July 1, foresees a spending rise of nearly S3.5 billion over the current level. More than 75 per cent of the increase would involve military and space programs. Kennedy told Congress he expects outlays to total slightly more than S92.5 amount exceeded only twice before, during World War II. Revenues were Here's How Tax Dollars Go WASHINGTON (AP) Here is how your federal tax dollar will he spent under President Kennedy's fiscal 1963 budget: National security, including space and foreign aid, 63 cents; interest on federal 10 cents; veterans, 6 cents; farm programs. 6 cents; health and welfare, 6 cents; all other, 9 cents.

Heavily armed troops patrolled the capital streets.

Increase postal rates by about million a year. The new budget assumes that the Berlin crisis will cool off enough to permit the return home by June 30 of military reservists mobilized last fall. Any heighten- ing of cold war tensions could prompt new hikes in defense spending, and wipe out the indi- cated surplus. Kennedy also based his projec- tions on an assumption that the economy will continue to expand briskly into 1963, though perhaps at a lesser rate as time passes. The President said major econom- ic records will be broken month after month whiie the unemploy- ment rate will drop from per cent to 4 per cent by mid-1963.

The Highway Patrol said a mile- long line of cars stalled for a time on icy hills on U. S. 66 east of Clinton. The patrol said U. S. 66 was vir- tually impassable west of El Re- no. Other roads in the north and west were becoming slick and hazardous, patrol and Highway Department spokesmen said. Four inches of snow were re- ported on the ground at Watonga with 3 to 4 inches at Buffalo and 3 inches at Enid, Cherokee and Elk City. Clinton had inches, Guymon and Ponca City had an inch. As the snow moved into the northwest half of the state early today, southeast Oklahoma got a combination of rain, sleet and snow. The Highway Department said the sleet was sticking to roads in some sections. Department crews were sanding hills and curves in an attempt to keep roads open. The Weather Bureau issued heavy snow warnings calling for four inches or more of snow in an area from south central Kan- sas b north central Missouri. North central Oklahoma was expected to get 3 inches or more by Friday morning with 1 to 3 in- ches in the northeast. i Most low temperatures overnight vious state council had set Feb- (Continued on Page Two) mi 1 H an ae earc, ocn- n m.lhon surplus would re- in lhe 30s but al Guymon faccd cnargcs of driving a national policy. the mercury dropped to 7 degrees vehicle with an improper exhaust.

The major step under consid- eration is denial of recognition to the junta formed Tuesday upon the ouster of President Joaquin Balaguer. State Department officials said the seven-man junta appeared to completely under the power ol an air force general, Pedro Rod- High In Ada Iriguez Echavarria, 37. Wednesday was 47; low Wednes- day night, 36; reading at 7 a.m. Thursday, 37. Other steps may include eco- nomic sanctions, among them de- nial to the Dominican Republic of U.S. sugar purchases in the first six months of this year amounting to million. Officials reported Wednesday night that the United States al- ready has postponed steps toward restoration of normal trade with the Dominican Republic.and has stalled policy decisions on a new U.S. aid program which had been designed to bolster progress to- ward democratic rule. Suspended action in these fields of aid and trade could readily be hardened into more permanent anti-Echavarria policies if, in the U.S. government's view, the fears of a developing military dictator- ship are borne out. Washington officials obviously hope, however, that the unusually speedy reaction from here, em- bodied in a strong statement of disapproval issued by the State Department Wednesday, would re- sult in changes in the political situation at Santo Domingo. One evidence of change, they said, would be the restoration lo positions of real power "of Rafael Bonnelly, a leader of the National Civic Union, and other former of- ficials regarded by Washington as exponents of eventual democratic government for the Dominican Republic. The United States restored full diplomatic1 relations with the Car- ibbean island nation only 12 days ago. U.S. aid experts were dispatched to survey the possibili- ties of assistance and develop- ment of an aid program was un- dertaken. The Kennedy administration, as one official put it, was anxious to demonstrate its support for demo- cratic elements in the "country. It is now no less anxious to demon- strate, this official said, its'deter- mined opposition to a revival of military rule. Brothers Boffi Seefc Posf By STELLA ROBERTS Associated Press Staff Writer U.
