S. Deficit Predicted 48 le in zores ane Crash Denfeld Firing May Reopen Inquiry By Joseph and Stewart Alsop few people realize, as yet, what a staggering deficit the next federal budget Is likely to show, even after the giz- zard has been cut out of the Amer- ican defense program. Present forecasts are, in fact, that expendi- ture will outrun revenue by at least and perhaps by The growth of the expected ae- ficit is largely the result of the drop in anticipated tax collections. Predictions of tax income for next; year are down to somewhere be- tween and and even this prediction is considered optimistic in some quarters.

Denfeld was marked as the first Congressmen Fear Reprisals Against Officers Testifying Greek Tension Center of New UJ harbors, which are beloved by Con- gress. Even so, as matters now stand, he will, almost certainly ask Congress to spend or a little more. And since Congress is always generous in an election year, many of the President's re- quests are likely to be exceeded rather than reduced. OBVIOUSLY, the expectation of such a deficit poses a massive pro- blem of national policy. Unfortun- ately, however, the Truman admin- istration contains no economic high cowmand capable of solving such problems. The President's econom- ic decisions are made, in truth, on an eclectic system, with a little borrowed here from Secretary of the Treasury Snyder, and a little borrowed there from economic councilor Leon Keyserling, and so on. Where the borrowing will be, done this time, no one can fore-i see. Thus instead of a real na- j tional policy for dealing with the j deficit, it is only possible to re- port the existing conflicts of view. On the one hand, each succeed- ing year of federal budgetary un-j balance has added to the and somewhat increased the; strength of the administration's economizers. The economizers j have now lost one of their mosti important leaders, the former chairman of the Economic Adviso- ry council, Dr. Edwin Nourse. But they are still plugging for sharp cuts in spending, particularly in the foreign and defense fields. And some of them are also urging tax increases.
