YOUR If ATI SHOPPING VOLUME THIRTY-SEVEN Hit tdUllH, NORTH CAlOUNA, FRIDAY, FRBRUARY M, 1M7 NUMBER THRITY-THRSF R Cut of $4,500,OWMWO Ap proved by Vote of 51 to 33, with Body Refusing To Take Funds Away From Armed Forces; Taft Gaapro mise With House That Will Place Reduction At 5 Billions; Action on Amendments Awaited Washington, Feb. 26.?Tacitly 1 jecting any major oats for the Army and Navy, the Senate voted 51 to ? today to?alaah 94J00#?fi00 c President Truman's *37,600,000,?00 budget for the year starting July 3. This compares with a *6,000,000, 000 cot already approved by the House. The Dowse action had led to cries that the Army and Navy might be crippled at a critical Juncture in world affairs. Chairman Knutson (R-Minn) of the House Ways and Means Committee told a reporter after the Senate vote that the cutback of only *4,500,000, 000 would throw overboard his bill for a 20 per cent across-the-board ducing the figure to 10 per cent. He quickly added, however, that "the House will never accept" the Senate figure. Still pending in the Senate as Knutson spoke was a proposal by Senator Know land (R-Gaftf) to xe*y quire that *3,000,000,000 of any gov ernment surplus be applied to the national debt. Senator Taft (R-Ohio) proposed to cut Knowland's debt retirement figure to *1,000,000,900, leaving room for a *3,500,000,000 tax reduction if revenues come in as expected. Senator Green (R.R I) went the other way with a proposed amend ment to apply all of the budget sav ing to the debt An those proposals remained to be voted on when the Senate quit for the night. Taft Sees As for the ceiling1 on spending, Chairman Taft (R-OMo) of the Senate Republican Policy Commit tee predicted to a reporter that a Senate-House , compromising com mittee eventually^ will arrive at a figure of $6,000,000,000 or slightly more as the overall pledge for reduc ing expenditures. This would put Congress on record as promising?if it doesn't change ittf mind when individual appropria tions bills are voted?to hold govern ment costs to about 86 per cent of the level Mr. Truman previously had described as bedrock. The Senate's vote for the $4,600, 000^000 cut represented a victory for the aimed sm rices, which had con tended that the larger savings prom ised" by fiie House would cut so deep make them ineffective for national defense and to support American for eign policy.
