The ducks nonchalantly pedaled around in the water, hopped up on the side of the tank, shook themselves good, and then wad dled out across the frozen ground with no apparent concern for the cold. In the background, geese stand on the encrusted sleet—minus booties or galoshes. Brrr. Brrr, it’s enough to bust your pipes. (Staff Photo by David Barros) Snow Must Go High of 40 Due The big thaw Is due today. The U. S. Weather Bureau observer at Municipal Airport said Thursday night that clear skies and rising temperatures would greet Abilenians Friday morning. Clear skies will skyrocket the termperature to a high of 40 degrees Friday afternoon. That forecast coming on the heels of one of the worst winter days in Abilene since January. 1949. will be welcome relief to most citizens — especially those who tried to fight the sleet and snow Thursday in an effort to get to work. The cold which came roaring into .Abilene Wednesday afternoon, brought snow, sleet and freezing rain at various intervals staring shortly before midnight Wednesday. .65 of an Inch By the time most workers started their mecca to downtown offices and shops Thursday morning, ice and .sleet we .^oout two Inches deep over most of the city - Precipitation totalled .65 here.

Only 8 Wrecks However, the total number of j wrecks reported to city police was i comparatively small. Only eight wrecks were reported between 8 a,m. Thursday and 9; 30 pm. Thursday.

Pg. 2-A, Col. 3 HERE'S WHERE MONEY GOES WASHINGTON. .Ian. 21 — National security interest on the federal debt and veterans benefits are the three biggest items in the budget President Eisenhower sent to Congress today. National security includes Defense Department spending, aid to allies, atomic energy and other expenditures. .Altogether the budget calls for spending 65** million dollars in the fiscal year beginning Julv 1. Here is a breakdown showing how each budget dollar would be spent; Purpfise    Cents National Security    6S.2 Vet.

Defense Budget Down 4 Billion WASHINGTON, Jan. 21 (/P)—Ex-.soldier Eisenhower proposed today a military budget four billion dollars less than this year’s spending. It is based upon what he called “dynamic” planning to provide greater striking power by air and atom bombs, with fewer men under arms. The President recommended to Congress that the Defense Department spend $37,575,000,000 during the year beginning next July 1. Spending for atomic energy, aid to our allii^s and other purposes would bring the totaf “national security” budget up to $44,480.000,000. The four-billion-dollar cut in Defense Department spend-#ft m ■%■■■■    I    is    due, Eisenhower said, 65.5 Billion Budget Given To Congress WASHINGTON. Jan. 21    - President Eisenhower turned over to Congress today a pared down $65,570,000.000 budget that still calls for highest-in-history spending on atomic development, continental defense and militaiT,' aid for allies. -And for airpower, Eisenhower proposed the largest expendOures since World M’ar II. The President sliced $5,322.000. to the following factors: “The dynamic long-range plan recommended by the Joint Chiefs of Staff for our militarv’ forces, the savings resulting from economies effected by thi.s administration. the cessation of hostilities in Korea, and the decrease im procurement — particularly with respect to vehicles, ammunition and suft goods — made possible by the Improved supplies and materiel position.’’ The impact of this w’ould be greatest on the Army. For the first time, a militarj’ budget provided no new’ request for appropriations with which the Army would buy j major production items—tanks and | other weapons, trucks and «similar i equipment. The reason, said a De- j fense Department spokesman, is ' that the .Army will have about ____  $4,300.000,000    on    hand    when the year from the government^ spend-    from    previously    ap- AT SWEETWATER Train.

In or- »08 program for the 1955 fiscal year starting next July 1. Even so, that leaves the budget nearlv three billion dollars out of balance. M ith this outlook for more red ink, Eisenhower drew a line against any more general tax cuts “at this time” Nevertheless, he urged a vast revision of ‘hap-hazard * tax laws to make them “fairer" and lower the tax load on individuals and businesses by 1»4 billion dollars. Likes Idea Capitol Hill seemed to like the idea of a smaller budget, although some Democrats took pains to note that in spite of 1952 elecUon campaign promises the budget isn’t balanced yet- Neither Eisenhower nor his chief financial advisers were ready to predict when It would be. Chairman Taber fR-NY) immediately announced that the House Appropriations Committee will try to trim the budget enough to bring it into balance. The chief executive took nearly two-thirds of the budget cut out of national security Items. But security still W’ould get more than two of every three dollars the administration expects to spend in the year ahead. Eisenhower assured Congress; “Our security is being strengthened—not weakened” It also will permit, he said. si>ending a record $2.425.000,000 on atomic energy—225 millions more than for the present fiscal year— an alUime high $4.275,000.000 to bolster the military power of friendly nations The military aid program is up 75 millions. In addition, there is the 25-point tax i-evision program deslgped to help mothers with jobs, people with big doctor bills, farmers businessmen and parents of children in college. A Masterpiece liouse Speaker Martin (R-Mass^ called the budget "a masterpiece of statesmanship.” House Majority Leader Halleck (R-Ind> said the .American people wanted better government and more security at less eost and “they are getting it,” House Minority leader Rayburn (D-Tex' spoke of Republican campaign promises to balance the budget and wondered “when they are going to do it." He said he hoi>ed the cut in defense wasn't too deep, as ’ l would much rather be alive with an empty pocket- propriated money. The .Army also would be hit heavily in another way under the proposed budget. A cut in manpower —. from a present level of about 1.500.000 to 1.164.000 by June 30. 1955 — would mean a reduction from 20 to 17 combat divisions. But offsetting somewhat the cutback in traditional foot .soldier forces would be an expansion Ui the new weapons field: an increase of more than 50 per cent in antiaircraft battalions, with more than one third of the units using the , new Nike guided missUe.

President Here is what the new emphasis •    tiower    asserted today on air power would mean: Of the total militarj’ spending budget. 22 per cent would go for the procurement of aircraft. At present, the Air Force, Navy and .Marine Corps have about , 33,000 planes, of which one third • are jets. In the next three years I Eisen- this would be boosted to 40.000. with more than half of them jets. By that time, at the end of three years, the Air Force would have 137 wings (a wing ranges in size from 30 planes for a heavy bomber outfit to 75 for fighters I. Presentí In his annual budget message to Congres.s. the Pi-esident figured prospective Ios«es this fiscal year and next w til total $813,000.000. This underscores the necessity of making changes, in the interest of both farmers and the nation, he said. The figure he mentioned would bring total losses on price support programs to $1.923.000.000 since they were started in the midthirties. Costs Would Decline The President said that because unit strength is 110 wings; by the I    accumulation    of    vast    sur- end of the next fiscal year it would be 120: up to 127 by the end of fiscal 1956; at the goal of 137 the following year. Ttie air arms of the services will benefit by the vaulting rate of the atomic energy program. Eisenhower said the .Atomic Energy Commi-ssion would .siiend 52.425.-000.000 in the next fisi'al year, compared with $2.200.000 000 this year —“the highest in our hi.story." pluses, price support expenditures are dominating the government’s role in the agricultural field. He s.xid costs of these programs would decline if Congress adopted ! his recently-proposed farm plan j featuring flexible price supports instead of the present high level props. i The government’s investment in I surpluses increased $2.500.000,000 1    for    %%heat.    $3,000    for    honey, i during the 1953 calendar vear. the ' 6306.000 for tung oil, $2,249.000 for -^-!    wool and $96.872.000 for ail other President said, and now totala more than $5,500.000,000. The President’s budget for activities of the agriculture department other than those relating to farm surpluses and price supporti is down 10 per cent from this year. The total for the coming year is $!.132.284.000 compared with $1,-315,837,000 for the current year. Savings Offset But this saving to the Treasury would be more than offset, the President said, by prospects that the government w ill lose $487.^.-000 on price support operations. This would be by far the largest annual deficit for such operations. Ixisses for the current year were forecast at $328.323,000. Losses represent the differenca between w bat the government payt for surplus commodities taken over from farmers under price guarantees and what it gets for them when finally disposed of. The losses for the coming year were forecast at $279.432.000* for butter and other dairy products. $49.000.000, for corn. $4.796,000, for peanuts. $1.124.000 for tobacco. $54 - conslderably. officers rocked hi-, car back and forth sevcial times Ho repented this prwedure on numerous occastons.
