Strike Endangers Balanced Budget Continuation Could Cut Down National Prosperity Washington The Eis- enhower -administration had a new and urgent reason today for possible intervention in the 10-week steel strike. If it is not settled soon, it will un- balance the federal budget. Budget Director 'Maurice Stans yesterday linveilcd a new and higher estimate of federal spending for this 1960 fiscal year. It carries a million surplus, a million increase over previous esti- mates, built on the assump- tion of prosperity and rising tax collections. j Threat far Surplus Government revenues" will suffer quickly, Stans told re- porters, if f he mighty steel in- dustry fails to resume produc- tion in time to prevent a spreading industrial paraly- sis, dropping income, and de- clining profits. He told-reporters: "If the strike is not settled In two or three weeks or if there is no Taft-Hartley in- junction or some other action to get .the men back to work the-surplus would be rath- er quickly wiped out." Chances of a quick settle; ment of the strike remained uncertain. Negotiators have been meeting spasmodically in New York with no appar- ent progress. There had been previous in- dications that early-October would be the deadline for se- rious consideration by Presi- dent Eisenhower of strike- stopping intervention. Larger Budget Sec. of Labor James P. Mitchell said recently he would recommend the Taft- Hartley" procedure if thc strike extended into next month and' created a nation- al emergency. Invoking the labor act would bring about an 80-day resumption of work for fact-finding and "cooling but would not prevent a renewal of the strike at the closed that the billion spending schedule which Eis- enhower announced in" his budget message has become a budget. The shaky surplus which he foresaw in been preserved in the revision, and even en- larged a bit. Business profits are smash- ing records, and Uncle Sam gets about half of every dollar of'corporate earnings. Stans said the government reckons that profits will total billion this year, a. rec- ord. Corporate tax collections, augmented by higher income dj, .excise tax receipts, should produce an unprece- dented billion in total rev- enues, he estimated. This billion higher than in the previous best year, 1957. Ike and Khrushchev Set for Weekend Talks at Camp 53 Killed in Crash P y J Of French Airliner Sen.

Fifty-three persons were killed. Twelve lived through it. The tragedy was the worst ever to strike a French airline. The plane, A DC7. smashed into the woods, exploded and burst into flames. Most of the 12 survivors were burned seri- ously. Some were thrown clear. Others were savedjby rescue teams fighting flames from the plane's fully loaded gaso- line tanks.

The baby was taken to Mercy hospital by sheriff's officers and was reported in good condition this morn- ing. Two 13 year old boys, Richard Kaufman and Jim Towns, both of route 5. Osh- kosh, found the child on their way home from Win- nebago school. It .was dis- covered 21 feet off'the east side of County Trunk A on the side road to the north. Hearing the baby cry. the two boys turned back to in- vestigate. They reported the baby to Mrs. Freda Fur- man, who lives nearby. She called the sheriff's depart- ment. The infant was wrap- ped in an old bedspread. The umbilical cord was not tied. Sheriff Charles Lowry said the baby was found in a place where, ii the boys hadn't heard it crying, it probably wouldn't have been found. He said there are no clues as to whom the mother is. Nearby residents were Plane Crashes In Aleutians No Sign of Life At Wreckage of Commercial Craft Anchorage, Alaska A commercial airliner with 16 persons aboard crashed on an Aleutian island last night and a search pilot reported no sign of life at wreckage.

RYAN Washington President Eisenhower and Soviet Pre- mier Nikita S. Khrushchev go to a quiet mountain retreat to- day for a fateful weekend debate. Each will try to persuada the other to change his government's policy in the interest of peace. Khrushchev, newly returned from a remarkable and hectic tour of America, indicates he has not retreated an inch from his persistent accusation that U. S. policy created and pre- served the cold war. Prcsident Eisenhower, after 11 days of startling headlines about the boss of world com- munism, is pictured as hope- ful the tour had some impact upon the visitor which might induce him to listen more re- ceptively to the U. S. govern- ment's arguments. Private Dinner Thc two get down to man-to- man talks this weekend in a placid setting ideally adapt- ed to talk about peace.
