GAUSS DENVER cut in taxes in two years, which would be made possible by balancing the national budget, was promised yesterday by Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower if he is elected President. No cut in taxes can be made, he j said, until the budget is balanced j and the military might of the West-1 ern nations equals that of Russia, goals which he estimated could be) reached in two years under his leadership in the White House. After that, he foresees a "steady I shrinkage" in the tax load. t The Republican presidential as- pirant expressed the opinions dur- ing a conference late yesterday with Oregon delegates, who are' backing him unanimously. To Fight for Texas Votes j He also promised them his voice "will be raised" in the controversy over delegates from Texas, his na- tive state, where he contended the will of the Republicans was "thwarted." National Republican headquarters announced at Washington that all Texas contests between delegates supporting Eisenhower and Sen. Robert A. Taft have been referred to the national committee, which will meet in Chicago, probably July 1. Eisenhower said he wants no del- egate "that I have real reason to believe has been elected by any I other means than the free expres-: sion of the American people." The genera) also took a position, i shortly after the Oregon meeting, j favoring legislation to place states in control of off-shore oil deposits, j He said this was subject to a check on constitutional issues, but indica- ted he sees no serious problem: there. No Schedule Today Preparing for a weekend trip j to Texas and Nevada, the general! announced no schedule for today, I reserving it for office work and j relaxation. i He plans to fly to Denison, Tex., i his birthplace, Saturday, then go j on to Dallas and then fly to Boulder i City, Nev., and Hoover Dam Sun- j day. His schedule calls for a re- j turn to his Denver headquarters I Sunday night. Late tomorrow he will resume his conferences with Western dele- gates. He is scheduled to meet representatives f r o m where seven of the eight conven- j tion votes are pledged to Taft; j Idaho, where all 14 votes are count-; ed in the Taft column, and Wash-' ington, where 20 of the 24 votes are in his own pocket. He already has met delegates from five Wyom-: ing and Utah on Tuesday and gon and Arizona yesterday. Two Arizona delegates who are officially uncommitted said the general made a good impression on them, but neither committed: himself. Five of the 14 Arizona del- egates were among a party of nine fl I ft from the state which met the gen- I 11011111 eral privately. Only one of them I IWVVI Vwlill Vl was among the 1U Arizona voting delegates who have expressed a preference for Tafi. He indicated afterward that he still favors the senator. Wide Range of Subjects Eisenhower touched on a wide- range of subjects in his meeting with the Oregon delegates. News- men were admitted to the session.

Mr, Truman was asked if he thought any Democratic president could trim taxes that much. No, he didn't, said. And if they could have been reduced that much he would have done it.

Eisenhower has not gone as far as 7'aft in promising a tax reduc- tion but he has said a reduction would he possible in about two years.
