• Washington—After many years
of delay, the Civil Aeronautics
Board seems to be stepping up
its efforts to settle the question
of expanded air service for
Eastern North Carolina.
The initial recommendations of
a CAB examiner were announc
ed on March 13 in the long
pending Piedmont Local Service
Area Investigation. The CAB
has now set April 12 as ‘the
deadline for briefs of objections
to be filed. This means that
oral arguments before the CAB
should follow shortly afterwards.
The recommendations made in
the examiner’s report are quite
far-reaching and if they are
approved by the CAB, many
cities and towns in ’ Eastern
North Carolina will receive ex
cellent North-South air service
for the first time.
The proposals made, by the'
examiner would' v authorize Pied-!

Washington -r- The principal
’thing to keep in mind with re

j budget messages is that govern
ment spending is certain to soar
unless Congress applies the
Already substantial deficits are
officially forecast 52.2 billion
for the present fiscal year (end
ing June 30, 1961) and $2.45
billion (including $650 million
additional Defense expenditures)
for the 1962 fiscal year—and the
spending trend is headed sharp
ly upward for subsequent years.
In fact, Mr. Kennedy gives
specific notice that non-defense
expenditures may “be expected
to increase” in futura years—
and he has been a long-time ad
vocate of boosting Defense
But members of the economy
bloc in Congress are deter
mined to do' everything possible
to eliminate spending which they
regard as unessential.
This group is composed of
southern Democrats and conser
vative Republicans, who find
encouragement in their 186 to
185 House defeat of Mr. Ken
nedy’s minimum wage legislative
This conservative victory dem
onstrates, they assert, that Mr.
Kennedy faces real difficulties
in having his way with Con
gress on controversial proposals
—including exorbitant spending.
They are counting on an up
surge of grass-roots sentiment
against radical legislation and
unnecessary spending to aid
them in their crusade for good
In his budget messages, Mr.
Kennedy obviously sought to
convince the public that he is
not responsible for the 1961 and
1962 deficits which he forecast.
He was replying in advance to
charges of fiscal irresponsibility.
By a process of reasoning
which even some of his most
ardent disciples questioned, he
sought to demonstrate that his
J non-defense budget would ac
tually be in balance in terms
of the budget recommendations
made by former President Eisen
Mr. Kennedy went to great
! lengths 'to demonstrate that Mr.
Eisenhower was way off in his
estimates of receipts and expen
ditures. Yet, after vigorously
challenging their accuracy, Mr.
Kennedy used them as the basis
for his budget recommendations
and for his claim of a balanced
Here is the way he presented
the situation with respect to the
1962 non-defense budget.
Mr. Eisenhower estimated to
tal expenditures at $80.9 bil
Spending proposals. Mr. Ken
nedy has made since entering
the White House would add to
the Eisenhower budget about
$2.3 billion—for a total of $83.2
Mr. Eisenhower estimated re
ceipts at $82.3 billion.
Ibis would leave the 1962
non-defense budget unbalanced
by S9OO million.
So, what does Mr. Kennedy
It’s 'very simple. He estimat
ed that “the effects of my eco
nomic program on the economy
would be reflected in additional
revenues of about S9OO million.”
So—bingo!—You have a bal
anced non-defense budget.
But Mr. Kennedy then pro
ceeds to admit that “it would be
unrealistic to fail to recognize”
that Mr. Eisenhower’s estimate
of receipts was “over-optimistic.”
Whereupon Mr. Kennedy
comes up with this conclusion:
“Based on a more realistic eco
nomic outlook and including the
effect of my economic proposals,
it appears more likely that the
revenues for fiscal year will be
about $81.4 billion.”
So, being realistic produces a
$l.B billion non-defense deficit
while being unrealistic produces
a balanced non-defense budget.
Four days later, Mr. Kennedy
recommended a $650 million net
boost in Defense spending over
the Eisenhower proposal to
bring the total to $43.8 billion
for the 1962 fiscal year.
Me asked Congress, however,
for a $1,954 million boost in new
bbligstional authority (which
could be spent in 1962 or later)
to bring the Defense total to

Hearing Aid Unit Scheduled
Saturday As Public Service
A mobile hearing aid service
unit, said to be the first of its
kind east of the Mississippi Riv- |
er, is scheduled to make its ap
pearance in Edenton Saturday,!
April 8. The unit will be sta
tioned at the Broad and Church I
Street Texaco Station opposite j
the Post Office from 10 A. M. to
2 P. M.
The hearing aid unit is a pub- i
lie service. Those who suspect j
a hearing loss are tested free for j
type and degree of loss. Those
who need medical attention for
their hearing problems are re
ferred to physicians.
Since hearing aids need ad
justments periodically, the unit
will perform this service free.
The unit contains a selecto
meter, which tells whether an
aid will help the individual test- j
ed. It also tells the intensity !
needed in a hearing aid to give j
each individual normal hearing, j
The equipment is available on
request for schools, clubs or oth- !
er organizations as a public ser
