Roosevelt Confident Says Budget Will Be Balanced in Three More Years By HERBERT PLUSIMEIt ASHINGTON Jan 11 Members of con gress who scan ned the presi message in vain on open ing day for a de tailed account of what he propos ed to do about money were not disappointed very long On the next day they receiv ed his message on the budget perhaps as frank and candid a statement as ever was made to a congress by the chief executive of the United States Those advocating outright Infla tionand other forms of currency expansion could hardly have been entirely satisfied Despite the fact that the presi dent anticipates a total excess of expenditures over revenues during the fiscal years of 1934 and 1935 of more than nine billion dollars by the third year of sees a definitely balanced bud get Furthermore not only does he be lieve that by 1936 the government should be living within its income but also at that time should start re ducing the national deljt Laying the Foundation Whether the feat is to be accom plished remains to be seen As for Mr Roosevelt he seems confident it can be done It is evident to me he says that powerful forces for recovery exist It is by laying a foundation of

pay back a little on what it owes While he admits it takes quite a bit of nerve to run up the public debt to possibly dur ing the next two years he reminds that the immeasurable benefits justify the cost As to the Battle Some observers believe the presi dents expression of faith in the powerful forces at work for re covery virtually closes the door on any hopes that direct inflationists and currency expansionists of var ious shades have It will be interesting to watch what effect it will have on the wide lyheralded battle over money predicted for this session of con gress One prediction

morning decided to begin immediate consideration of tax revision the senate was driven back into a committee of the whole to resume work on the rewritten classified transaction tax bill last tax measure to be taken up infor mallyin the higher branch Unexpected agitation among rep resentatives of both political parties filled the house this morning and evidenced itself in demands that tax revision be taken up immediately in an effort to complete legislative du ties and adjourn Attempts in the house to defer action until the senate had enacted a tax revision bill and to postpone consideration until Monday were swamped by negative votes Goes Back to Work Advised of the house action the senate which had been working on general bills promptly went back into a comtpittee of the whole and resumed its work on the rewritten bill The house adjourned at noon to spend the remainder of the day in important committee meetings The at the head of the cal endariand under will be the first measures before the house when it convenes at a m tomorrow In moving to return to commit tee of the whole Senator G E Roel offs advised the senate that the house had begun tax revision work and referring to the passage of the liquor bill said that If we do not speed up work on tax revision the house will beat us on that too Committee of Whole The upper branch has devoted the past several weeks to an informal discussion of tax revision sittingas committee of the whole The senate adjourned at noon un til 10 a m tomorrow to allow mem bers time for drafting amendments to SF 230 The question of tax revision was brought up In the house by Rep resentative Malone of Cass who asked whether the joint resolution on emergency legislation was still effective The speaker niled such was the case Then we can take up tax revis ioi said Malone Yes that or any other measure replied the speaker Representative Wieben of Tama then moved that the house withdraw the Interim committee bill from the tax revision committee and place it on the calendar Speaker Miller ruled that as the bills had been in committee since Nov22 they could be taken from the committee and placed on the calendar by request It was suggested by Representa tive Cunningham of Polk that the Farm Bureau classified transactions bill and the gross income tax bill also be placed on the calendar This was done If we work twice as fast as the senate it will take two or three weeks to consider the bills said Cunningham the house should be given opportunity to consider all three measures Fears Hitting Jam Advising the house to think twice before it took hasty action Representative Doran of Boone aaid The senate has wrangled a long time on this subject We want to avoid anything which might defeat some tax revision If we pass a bill quickly we might get into a jam and the whole session be a failure Representative Mitchell of Web ter declared the same objections were made a month ago I can see no reason why we should not begin consideration of this subject he said If you have been watching the newspapers you will believe the people want tax re vision and liquor control and then went us to get out of here If we consider tax revision we will be better able to understand the senate bill when it gets over Liquor Bill Passed Representative Malone of Cass as serted that with the liquor control bill

victory late yesterday by a 74 to 32 vote How soon it will be taken up In the senate is problematical as the Upper branch still is engaged in its long drawn out struggle to write a tax bill and at least several more days will be required for this task 3 Major Changes Made Eleven republicans joined with G3 democrats in putting over the bill while 9 democrats gave support to 23 republicans in the negative ballot Fought over for seven days in the lower branch the bill withstood re peated onslaughts to emerge with only three major changes These amendments reduce the personnel of a state commission to three mem bers cut the appropriation for pur chase of liquor and establishment of stores from 51000000 to a maxi mum of and eliminate the sale of beer in stateowned stores or by special
