Pursuant to the provisions of 31 U. S. C. 11 and other
applicable laws, the budget for the fiscal year 1958 con­
tains the President’s recommendations for the work pro­
gram and financial program of the Government for the
12 months beginning July 1, 1957, and ending June 30,
1958. It also presents comparable information for the
fiscal years 1956 (actual) and 1957 (partly actual and
partly estimated).
The material in the budget covers both groups of funds
administered by agencies of the Government—Federal
funds (owned by the Government), and trust and deposit
funds (held in trust or in suspense by the Government),
although only the Federal funds are included in the
computation of the budget surplus or deficit.
ARRANGEMENT OF THE BUDGET

item of authorization. This part also includes material
on funds of the municipal government of the District of
Columbia, and a few other trust funds which require
'
congressional action. It is arranged in chapters reflecting
the organization of the Government.
Part III (pp. 991 through 1061) contains summary
tables on trust and deposit funds, and detailed schedules
and explanatory statements on the various trust funds.
Part IV (pp. 1063 through 1150) contains special
analyses of budget data and Federal programs. These
analyses supplement material appearing in other parts of
the budget. Some of these give details for certain sum­
mary figures appearing in part I—for example, a classifi­
cation of budget receipts by source, and a classification of
budget expenditures according to functions and subfunc­
tions. Several of the other special analyses in part IV
contain materials which present different groupings or
classifications of data.
An appendix, printed separately, contains more detailed
information on personal services by grade and title.

The budget document consists of the President’s
budget message and his analysis of the budget and four
parts which contain summary tables, detailed data, and
special analyses.
In the budget message and analysis (pp. m 4 through

As a result, the estimates for these two years are not entirely comparable to the figures for prior years. The financial trans­
actions relating to the new highway program are carried as trust fund transactions, in accordance with the legislation
enacted during the past session of the Congress, and are so shown in part III of this budget document.

To the Congress oj the United States:

I am presenting with this message my recommended budget for the
United States Government for the fiscal year 1958, which begins next
July 1.
This is the fourth budget which I have transmitted to the Congress.
In my first budget message—that for the fiscal year 1955—I empha­
sized the administration’s determination to chart a course toward
two important fiscal goals—balanced budgets and tax reductions.
Reductions in spending evidenced in the 1955 budget made possible
a large tax reduction and tax reform program.
The 1956 budget was balanced.
The 1957 budget w be balanced.
ill
A balanced budget is proposed for 1958.
I believe this policy of fiscal integrity has contributed significantly
to the soundness of our Nation’s economic growth and that it will
continue to do so during the coming fiscal year.

This budget is for the first fiscal year of my second term in office.
In making plans for the coming year, I have been guided by the
following national objectives:
1. Peace, justice, and freedom for our own and other peoples;
2. Powerful armed forces to deter and, if need be, to defeat aggres­
sion;
3. A healthy and growing economy with prosperity widely shared;
4. Enhancement of individual opportunity and the well-being of
all our people;
5. Wise conservation, development, and use of our great natural
resources ;
6. Fiscal integrity;
7. A well-balanced choice of programs at home and abroad; and
8. Increasing international trade and investment essential to the
growth of the econom of the United States and the rest of the free
ies
world.
We have made considerable progress toward these goals. We
w continue this progress in the years ahead.

BU DGET PO LICY

Today, almost 12 years after World War II, the United States has
demonstrated that it is possible to sustain a high employment economy
independent of war and continually unbalanced Federal budgets. Ad­
justments to changing economic circumstances have been and are
being made successfully. Productivity and living conditions have
improved. With sound public and private policies, the prospect for
continued economic growth is bright.
Attainment of that goal is possible only with prudent management
of the Government’s fiscal affairs. Our Federal budget must contrib­
ute to the Nation’s financial stability and to the preservation of the
purchasing power of the dollar. Maintaining a sound dollar requires
of us both self-discipline and courage. At a time like the present
when the economy is operating at a very high rate and is subject to
inflationary pressures, Government clearly should seek to alleviate
rather than aggravate those pressures. Government can do its part.
But business and labor leadership must earnestly cooperate—or what
Government can do in a free society at a time like this will not pre­
vent inflation.
For the Government to do its part in the coming year, taxes must
be retained at the present rates so that receipts will exceed budget
expenditures and the public debt can be further reduced. The pro­
spective budget surplus in the fiscal year 1958 will reinforce the restrain­
ing effect of present credit and monetary policies. The present situa­
tion also requires that less pressing expenditure programs must be
held back and some meritorious proposals postponed.
Expenditure and appropriation policy.—While taking present eco­
nomic conditions into consideration, the budget must also reflect the
general responsibilities of a Government which will be serving 172
million people in the fiscal year 1958. In the face of continuing threats
to world peace, our collective security must be strengthened through
alert international policies and a strong defense. Progress toward
greater equality of opportunity for all of our people as well as toward a
balanced development and conservation of our national resources
must go forward. Emphasis must continue upon promoting, through
private enterprise, the development and productivity of our economy.
We must move forward in some areas of investment while we hold
back in others. For example, the needs for schools, highways, and
homes are so urgent that I am proposing to move ahead with programs
to help our States, cities, and people undertake such construction at a
prudent rate. However, in view of the present active competition for
labor, materials, and equipment, I am not recommending some other
desirable construction projects, and I have asked the head of each




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDEN T

Federal agency to watch closely the timing of construction and to
postpone work which can be appropriately put off until a later date.
It is also important to hold to a minimum any increase in Govern­
ment personnel in the coming period. I have directed the heads of
the Federal agencies to give renewed emphasis to their efforts in this
regard—efforts which have resulted in a net reduction of approxi­
mately 240,000 in the civilian work force during the past 4 years.
Vacant positions are to be filled by new employment only if careful
review by each agency has demonstrated that the positions cannot
be abolished or filled by transfer. All proposals which might produce
higher Federal payrolls in the future w be critically exam
ill
ined and
evaluated.
Continuation of balanced budgets into the future requires that the
total of new authority to incur obligations, as well as the budget
expenditures for the year, should be less than the total of realisti­
cally anticipated budget receipts. This policy of controlling budget
authorizations, w
hich has been followed since the beginning of this
administration, has helped us move from a budget deficit of 9.4 billion
dollars in the fiscal year 1
95:> to balanced budgets in 1956,
1957, and 1958.
In this budget the total of new authority proposed for 1958 is 73.8
billion dollars, 279 m
illion dollars less than estimated budget receipts.
Of the total recommended new authority, specific action by this
session of the Congress will be necessary for 65.3 billion dollars.
Other new authority, such as that for paying interest on the public

debt, will become available under previously enacted permanent
authorizations.
The total amount of new obligational authority recommended
for the fiscal year 1958 is 2.8 billion dollars greater than the present
estimates for 1957. Budget expenditures are estimated to increase
by 2.9 billion dollars to a total of 71.8 billion dollars in 1958. These
estimates include my proposals for new legislation as well as present
programs.
For both new obligational authority and expenditures, about seventenths of the estimated increase between 1957 and 1958 is for the
military functions of the Department of Defense, reflecting the higher
costs of producing, operating, and maintaining the complex new
weapons and equipment being delivered in growing quantities to our
defense establishment. Other major increases are for the Department
of Health, Education, and Welfare, including my proposal for aiding
school construction, and for the Atomic Energy Commission.
The figures contained in this budget for the fiscal years 1957 and
1958 are not precisely comparable to the actual figures for prior years.
Under the provisions of legislation enacted last year, the financial
transactions for the greatly expanded Federal-aid highway program
are included in a self-liquidating trust fund and are not in the budget
totals.

and that we should look forward to further tax reductions as soon as

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

they can be accomplished within a sound budget policy. Reductions
in tax rates would give relief to taxpayers and would also release funds
for the activity and investment necessary for sustained econom
ic
growth through private initiative. However, the reduction of tax
rates must give way under present circumstances to the cost of meeting
our urgent national responsibilities.
For the present, therefore, I ask for continuation for another year
of the existing excise tax rates on tobacco, liquor, and automobiles,
which, under present law, would be reduced next April 1. I must
also recommend that the present corporate tax rates be continued for
another year. It would be neither fair nor appropriate to allow
excise and corporate tax reductions to be made at a time when a
general tax reduction cannot be undertaken.
In the area of taxation, I am especially interested in the problems
of small business. Last August the Cabinet Committee on Small
Business made a series of carefully considered recommendations in this
field. Some relief in the tax burden affecting small business, as
recommended by that Committee, which will give help with a minimum
loss of revenue should have early consideration by the Congress.
Any changes involving substantial loss of revenue should be consid­
ered at a later time when a general tax reduction is possible.
The present estimates of budget receipts for 1958 are based on the
assumption that the Nation will continue to have a high level of
business activity with increasing national income, and that the present
tax rates will be continued. They are the best estimates we can make
at this time, but, since they relate to a period 6 to 18 months away,
significant changes may take place before the fiscal year 1958 is ended.

Debt policy.—The budget surplus for the fiscal year 1956 of 1.6
billion dollars was used to reduce the public debt. This budget
provides for further reductions in the public debt for the current
fiscal year and for the fiscal year 1958.
The successive reductions in the debt from 1956 through 1958 are
modest in relation to its total size. Nevertheless, I hope that these
reductions, plus the collection of corporation tax payments on a more
nearly current basis (as provided by the Internal Revenue Code of
1954), will make it unnecessary to ask the Congress again for a tem­
porary increase in the legal limit of 275 billion dollars to cover
seasonal borrowing during the coming fiscal year.

The reduction in the public debt in the fiscal year 1957 is estimated

financed by drawing down the amount of cash the Government has
on hand.
For the fiscal year 1958, the reduction in the public debt will not be
as much as the budget surplus. This situation results primarily from
the fact that, in the aggregate, the trust funds are expected to draw
down the amount of uninvested cash held for them by the Treasury.
Receipts from and payments to the public.—The restraint on inflation­
ary pressures which will be exerted by the budget surplus in the fiscal
year 1958 w be reinforced by net accumulations in the trust funds
ill
which the Government administers. These trust fund accumulations,
such as those for highways and for old-age and survivors and disa­
bility insurance, are the excess of current receipts over current pay­
ments. They constitute reserves for future use which are invested
in Government securities.
When the Government’s budget transactions are consolidated with
trust fund and other transactions to give a picture of the flow of
money between the public and the Government as a whole, the receipts
from the public are estimated to exceed payments to the public by
3 billion dollars in the fiscal year 1958.

The decline between the fiscal years 1956 and 1957 in the excess of
receipts from the public results mainly from the estimated withdrawal
of cash from the Treasury by the International Monetary Fund in
1957. The cash payments are made as the Treasury redeems the
notes which were part of the United States subscription to the Fund.
This subscription was made in the fiscal year 1947 and is therefore
not part of current budget expenditures.
The excess of receipts from the public is estimated to be still lower
in 1958 mainly because of higher net payments from trust funds.

By far the largest part of the budget for the coming fiscal year, 63
percent, will be devoted to maintaining and improving our own de­
fenses and to strengthening the defenses and economies of other
nations in the interest of collective security and world peace. Civil
benefits will account for 24 percent of budget expenditures; interest, 10
percent; and all other operations, administration, and contingencies,

The new and more powerful weapons which are being delivered
to our Armed Forces in increasing quantities and varieties are much
more costly to produce, operate, and maintain than the weapons
they are replacing. Furthermore, w are now engaged in the develop­
e
ment of a whole new family of even more advanced weapons for all
the services. Large expenditures will be required to bring these
weapons into use. During the transition, we must continue to
purchase enough of the current types to preserve our readiness until
the effectiveness of the advanced weapons is demonstrated in tests.
•D
espite these upward pressures on expenditures, future defense costs
must be held to tolerable levels. Effective action must be taken to
improve efficiency and to maintain a proper balance between expendi­
tures for future military strength and expenditures for current
readiness.

MESSAGE OF TH E P R E SID E N T

The introduction of new equipment and weapons with vastly greater
combat capability is also having a powerful impact on concepts of
military strategy, tactics, and organization. The combat power of
our divisions, wings, and warships has increased to such an extent that
it is no longer valid to m
easure military power in term of the number
s
of such units.
I have given careful consideration to the many complex factors
which enter into the development of a well-balanced military structure.
I am convinced that the defense programs and funds for their support
as recommended in this budget provide a w and reasonable degree
ise
of protection for the Nation.
Our nuclear weapons and our ability to employ them constitute
the most effective deterrent to an attack on the free nations. We
shall continue to expand our nuclear arsenal until an agreement
has been reached for reduction and regulation of armaments under
safeguarded inspection guaranties.
At the same time, w are increasing the portion of the production
e
of fissionable materials allocated to peaceful uses at home and abroad
and we look forward to the day when all production may be used for
peaceful purposes. This budget provides for increased effort on power
reactor development and on new uses of atomic energy in biology,
medicine, agriculture, and industry. It will also make possible
greater sharing of our peaceful atomic energy developments with
other nations through the atoms-for-peace program.
World events continue to demonstrate the value of our programs of
mutual assistance. Continued assistance, both military and economic,
to friendly nations will provide the essential margin beyond their own
resources needed to support and strengthen their defenses and their
economies. The intensified worldwide conflict of ideas also requires a
further increase in our programs of international information.
Civil benejits.—During the past 4 years, the Government lias acted
affirmatively to advance the everyday well-being of our people by

MESSAGE OF TH E P RESIDENT

helping to improve their economic opportunities, helping to provide
safeguards against economic and physical hazards, and helping to
build needed public assets. The Government’s leadership in as­
sisting the people to satisfy their own needs has been so exercised
that steady progress has taken place without paternalistic interference.
In the fiscal year 1958 we shall continue to move forward with many
civil benefit programs already established by law.
To aid agriculture in its adjustments to new technologies and
to changed world production and consumption patterns, the soil
bank program will help reduce the production of surplus crops.
Additional marketing research and service activities will develop
new markets and new uses for our farm products. Watershed
protection, aid to low-income farmers, and assistance in overcoming
the problems of drought, wind erosion, and floods will be expanded.
The Federal Government is assisting the States and private enterprise?to*make [majo/advances in our transportation system. Traffic
control on our airways is being continually improved as new equip­
ment is developed and becomes available. Orderly replacement by
private shipping lines of the merchant ships built during World War
II is underway. Through grants paid from the highway trust fund,
the States, in partnership with the Federal Government, are begin­
ning a 13-year program to complete construction of the Interstate
Highway System.
Under the urban renewal program, which combines Federal,
local, and private efforts, 41 urban renewal projects will have been
completed by the close of the fiscal year 1958, and 531 more will be
in various stages of planning or construction. Private financing of
housing for military families, elderly families, cooperatives, and other
groups having special difficulties in obtaining homes will be encouraged
by special mortgage insurance and mortgage purchase programs.
Over the 3-year period, 1955 through 1957, nearly 400 new waterresource projects for flood control, navigation, irrigation, power, and
water supply will have been started and about one-half of these
projects will still be under construction in 1958. Because of the
need for continued and orderly development of our resources, I
recommend that construction be started at a modest rate in 1958 on
some new projects for which planning is well advanced. Funds for
initiating immediately the planning of new public works projects
which the Congress is expected to authorize are also included in
this budget.
Increased expenditures will be made for sound programs of health
research and grants for hospitals, clinics, and diagnostic and rehabili­
tation centers.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

Legislative recommendations for new civil benefits involving major
expenditures are being confined to needs of the highest priority and
will be discussed later in this message.
Interest.—Expenditures for interest are estimated to rise 100 m
illion
dollars to 7.4 billion dollars in the fiscal year 1958, despite reductions
in the public debt in 1956, 1957, and 1958. The increase in interest
charges is due to refinancing securities maturing during the coming
year at the higher rates of interest which reflect the heavy demand
for credit and capital throughout our prosperous economy.
Civil operations and administration.—Expenditures for the remain­
ing operations of the Government are estimated to be 1.8 billion dollars
in the fiscal year 1958, an amount 425 m
illion dollars less than in 1957
and 185 m
illion dollars less than in 1956. The decreases occur pri­
marily because certain payments heretofore made by the Civil Service
Commission and the Treasury Department will be charged to the
appropriations of the several agencies in accordance with legislation
enacted last year. These are the payments which the Government,
as employer, makes to the civil service retirement fund and those
which it makes for certified bills presented too late for payment in the
regular way. This improved accounting procedure shows with greater
accuracy the total cost of various agency programs and is responsible
for part of the increase shown in the expenditures for protection and
civil benefits.
Allowance jor contingencies.—Sound budgeting requires that some
general provision be made for contingencies which may arise in the
coming period. This is especially important today, in view of uncer­
tain world conditions. The Congress is not being asked to appropriate
for purposes not known. This item makes allowance in the budget
totals for probable future requests, including those to cover the cost
of some legislative proposals for which the timing of expenditures is
uncertain. As the needs arise, and as new legislation is passed, a
specific request for funds will be made in each case. The amount
allowed for expenditures is 400 million dollars, slightly over one-half
of 1 percent of total budget expenditures estimated for 1958.
Management improvement.—The administration is constantly striv­
ing to improve the management of Government. Vigorous measures
to increase efficiency have shown results in many Government
operations.
In the Veterans Administration, for example, the staff in nonmedical
activities has been reduced by 10,000 in the past 4 years. Some of




MESSAGE OF TH E PRESIDENT

this reduction was made possible because of smaller numbers of
insurance and readjustment payments, but most of the reduction in
staff reflects better procedures, including extensive mechanization
of operations.
In the overseas supply activities of the Department of Defense,
new procedures employing faster communications and better trans­
portation service have been established. These improved methods
of supplying overseas units substantially reduce inventory require­
ments and thus save both capital investment and costs of handling.
In the Post Office Department, despite an 11 percent rise in the
volume of m in the 4 fiscal years 1954 through 1957, the average
ail
employment w have increased only a little m
ill
ore than 3 percent.
This is concrete evidence of the value of new methods, organization,
and equipment.
After intensive reviews of their real property holdings, Government
agencies over the past 3 fiscal years have transferred excess property
costing over 131 m
illion dollars to other agencies, thus reducing the
volume of purchases needed by those agencies to meet new require­
ments. In addition, surplus real property worth 366 m
illion dollars,
including almost all of the Government-owned synthetic rubber plants,
has been sold, thus putting most of this property on the tax rolls.
In accordance with the recommendations of the second Hoover
Commission, an Office of Accounting has been established in the
Bureau of the Budget to help the Federal agencies to improve further
their financial management and, in that connection, to put into effect
the principles of accrual accounting and cost-based budgeting approved
in legislation enacted last year. Modern accrual accounting w
ill
make possible better management through improved information
needed to control costs.
LEG ISLATIVE P R O G R A M

This year I discussed only a few of the administration’s legislative
recommendations in the State of the Union m
essage. Therefore, this
part of the budget m
essage is devoted to a discussion of other major
proposals for legislation on which I recommend that the Congress
take action during the present session. The legislative program is
one on which the Congress and the executive agencies should be able
to work together successfully.
In the course of the next few months the administration will recom­
mend to the Congress a number of important legislative proposals.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

In the immediate future, I shall forward a message emphasizing the
urgency of enactment of an adequate program of Federal aid for school
construction, and a message on my proposals for amendment of our
immigration laws. In connection with the administration’s proposals
on education, this budget provides for the start of a 4-year program
of aid for school construction.
Two areas need earnest and prompt attention with a view to
determining whether new national policies should be adopted in the
light of reports and recommendations now pending in the Congress.
These are numerous detailed recommendations of the second Hoover
Commission which the committees were unable to consider prior to
adjournment of the 84th Congress and the proposals made by the
Advisory Committee on Transport Policy and Organization. Legisla­
tion to carry out the recommendations of the Committee was the
subject of hearings during the last Congress. Because of the impor­
tance of strengthening our transportation system, these hearings
should be completed in the present session. Proposals for legislation
will again be submitted by the Secretary of Commerce.
Substantial budget increases are recommended for existing activities
which will improve the health of the American people. The Congress
is also urged to enact legislation under which the Federal Government
can help the medical and dental schools to build more and better
teaching, as well as research, facilities to prevent the already acute
shortage of trained medical manpower from becoming critical. It is
also time to enact the necessary statutory basis for expansion and
improvement of voluntary health insurance plans under which smaller
insurance companies and nonprofit associations could pool their
resources and experience.
In the welfare field, additional funds are likewise provided in the
budget, and the Congress is urged to enact a new program of grants to
the States to help fight juvenile delinquency.
In recent years, a succession of legislative enactments has moved a
long way toward the goal of universal social security coverage, but
there are a number of collateral steps which will add much to the
meaning of our social security system as a whole. In part, these
steps can be taken by budgetary action, for example, by giving particu­
lar attention to the needs of the rapidly increasing number of older
persons in our society. Other steps will require legislation. First,
the unemployment insurance system should be extended and im­
proved. Similarly, congressional action is recommended to extend
the Fair Labor Standards Act to additional workers. The Secretary
of Labor w make recommendations on this act when hearings are
ill
held by the committees of the Congress. The Federal 8-hour laws

M E S S A G E OF T H E P R E S ID E N T

should be revised and brought up to date and legislation should be
enacted to assure equal pay for equal work. A modest program of
grants under which the States can increase their efforts to improve
occupational safety should be initiated. Likewise, legislation should
be enacted to require the registration of employee pension and welfare
funds to protect the interests of beneficiaries.
Of particular importance are recommendations to protect and
foster the initiative of the small businessman. The Small Business
Act should be extended. In order that small business may have
better opportunity to secure adequate financing, issues of securities
up to 500 thousand dollars should be exempted from the regular
registration provisions of the Securities Act of 1933. Similarly, the
Congress should enact legislation providing for notification to the
Federal Government of proposed business m
ergers, and should amend
the procedural provisions of the antitrust laws to facilitate their
enforcement. Wage reporting for income tax and social security
purposes should be consolidated and sim
plified. Other means of
assisting small business will be discussed in the Economic Report.
I repeat my recommendation of last year for the prompt enactment
of appropriate authority under which communities can be assisted in
solving basic problems of persistent unemployment.
At the present time, I do not contemplate proposing an extensive
program of personnel legislation comparable to the numerous construc­
tive measures enacted in the last several years. Certain needed
improvements in central personnel management are discussed in the
general government section of my budget analysis. All of these
measures deserve early attention and enactment by the Congress.
In addition, the Secretary of Defense is now studying recommenda­
tions of his Advisory Committee on Professional and Technical
Compensation. Any legislative recommendations growing out of
the work of this committee respecting personnel policies and com­
pensation systems of the military services will be presented at a
later time.
We should not let another year go by without taking the necessary
action to place the Post Office on a pay-as-you-go fiscal basis. The
case for adjusting postal rates needs no further justification. It is
supported by a vast majority of the general public as well as by most
of the business community. The administration has demonstrated
its capacity for improving the postal service, installing new and
more efficient methods and equipment, and cutting costs in accord­
ance with good business practice. The Congress should take the
further action needed to reduce the huge postal deficit. Then the

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

further improvements needed in equipment and facilities can be
made so that the American people may receive the mail service they
deserve and have the right to expect.
Various agencies are being asked to review with the Congress the
interest rates charged by the Government in connection with different
kinds of loans, several of which have a fixed statutory maximum
established when interest costs w
ere much lower than today. It is
desirable that there be more consistency and that more discretion be
allowed in determining what going rates should be, dependent on
the period of the loans and their conditions.
Recommendations concerned with proposed legislative changes in
our housing laws will be found in the section of my budget analysis
carrying the heading “Commerce and housing.”
With respect to farm legislation, certain changes are being recom­
mended in the corn program. Farmers who use all the wheat grown
on their own farms for seed, feed, or food should be exempt from
marketing quotas and penalties. The basic authority for disposal of
surplus farm commodities for foreign currencies, title I of Public Law
480 of the 83d Congress, should be extended for 1 year and an addi­
tional 1 billion dollars of authorization for losses under this title
should be provided. Legislation should also be enacted authorizing
the barter of nonstrategic Government-owned agricultural surpluses
to the nations of Eastern Europe.
The program of the administration in the field of natural resources
is fully set forth in that section of the budget analysis. It will not
be repeated here, except to indicate my continuing firm support of
the necessary legislative action to enable Federal agencies to par­
ticipate more fully with States, local governments, and private groups
in the development of partnership resources projects. I urge once
again the prompt enactment of legislation which will enable the
Fryingpan-Arkansas multiple-purpose project to get underway in the
fiscal year 1958.
I also recommend prompt action by the Congress to decide how the
Niagara power project can best be developed.
In returning the Harris-Fulbright natural gas bill to the 84th
Congress without my approval, I stated that legislation conforming to
the basic objectives of that bill was needed. I am still of that opinion.
It is essential that consum of natural gas be protected. We must
ers
endeavor to make sure that there w be continued exploration and
ill
development of adequate field supplies of gas, and that producers’
sales prices are arrived at fairly and competitively. In this way, and
with authority vested in the Federal Power Commission to regulate
interstate pipelines as to the price at which gas may be charged as an
item of cost in fixing their rates, the price to the public will be fair.
Legislation freeing gas producers from public utility-type regulation




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

is essential if the incentives to find and develop new supplies of gas
are to be preserved and sales of gas to interstate markets are not to
be discouraged to the detriment of both consumers and producers,
as well as the national interest.
The Congress is urged to carry out the proposals of the Judicial Con­
ference for additional Federal judges. Also, when a district or
circuit court judge who is the senior judge of the district or circuit
becomes 70 and chooses not to retire, he should be relieved of his
administrative duties. Furthermore, whenever a district court
judge reaches 70 and chooses not to retire, the Congress should pro­
vide that upon certification by the Judicial Conference of the need
therefor, the President would be authorized to appoint an additional
judge. When the judge who had reached 70 dies or retires, the
vacancy thus created would not be filled.
Although it is not within my province to make any recommenda­
tion, I am deeply interested in the suggestion which has been made that
the Congress should consider inviting the Chief Justice of the United
States to address the Congress annually on the work of the judiciary
and to present the recommendations of the Judicial Conference.
I recommend again that the Congress enact suitable legislation pro­
viding for home rule in the District of Columbia. Under any such
system the citizens of the District should be authorized to elect local
officials, to vote in Federal elections, and to have a delegate in the
House of Representatives.
I also recommend the enactment of legislation admitting Hawaii
into the Union as a State, and that, subject to area limitations and
other safeguards for the conduct of defense activities so vitally neces­
sary to our national security, statehood also be conferred upon Alaska.
The platforms of both major parties have advocated an amend­
ment of the Constitution to insure equal rights for women. I believe
that the Congress should make certain that women are not denied
equal rights with men. Similarly, I believe that the Congress should
propose a constitutional amendment lowering the voting age in
Federal elections.
As has already been indicated in the State of the Union message,
continuation of military and economic assistance to the free nations
of the world is a keystone of the administration’s efforts to promote
peace, collective security, and well-being for all peoples. Essential
complements of these assistance programs are steps to increase inter­
national trade and investment. Both can be materially advanced by
taking the actions necessary to avoid unfair tax duplications on busi­
ness conducted overseas and by the prompt enactment of legislation
approving United States membership in the proposed Organization
for Trade Cooperation. This administrative agency will greatly aid
the orderly operation of existing arrangements governing multilateral

m

21

m 22




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

trade to help prevent discrimination and restrictions against our
foreign commerce.
Although necessity forces us to keep ever in mind the destructive
power of nuclear weapons, it is equally essential that we keep in
mind the firm determination of the United States to share the fruits of
its efforts to develop the peaceful uses for atomic energy. Seventytwo nations have now signed the charter of the International Atomic
Energy Agency, which was established under the auspices of the United
Nations. Prompt action by the Congress is needed to authorize full
participation by the United States in the work of this Agency. The
United States has offered for distribution through this Agency 5,000
kilograms of fissionable uranium 235 out of the 20,000 kilograms pre­
viously offered for atomic research and power uses in other nations,
as part of our atoms-for-peace program.
The analysis of the budget discusses present programs for veterans.
A special message recommending changes needed in these programs
will be transmitted to the Congress.
The remaining items to which special attention should be directed
are (1) authorization to the President to make awards for distin­
guished civilian achievement, (2) establishment of a Federal Advisory
Commission on the Arts, (3) acquisition and maintenance of an official
residence for the Vice President, and (4) amendment of the Govern­
ment Corporation Control Act to provide for budget and audit con­
trol over Government corporations which are authorized, directly or
indirectly, to obtain or utilize Federal funds. It is also recommended
that the Congress give further consideration to legislation which
would place Government appropriations on an accrued expenditure
basis.
The other proposals which are parts of the administration’s legis­
lative program are discussed in my analysis of the budget. The fact
that they are not included in this summary presentation in no way
detracts from their importance or the strength of my recommenda­
tion that they be considered and enacted by the Congress in its
present session.




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

AN ALYSIS OF TH E BU DGET

I am presenting my budgetary recommendations in greater detail
under nine major program headings in the analysis of the budget
which follows this message. The Economic Report will contain a
further discussion of some of these proposals.

It is always difficult to make plans and forecast expenditures a year
or more in advance. This is particularly true when historic events
are taking place in Eastern Europe, when United Nations forces are
deployed in the Middle East, when uncertainties abound in other
parts of the world, and when in our own land economic change is
continuous. This budget has taken into account present conditions
and developments which today appear most likely at home and abroad.
It provides funds for all necessary Government activities on a reason­
able scale, and efforts will continue to be made by every executive
department and agency to improve efficiency and to maintain expendi­
tures w within the budget estimates. It is a carefully balanced
ell
budget—balanced in its receipts and expenditures, balanced in its
choice of programs. I consider it well adapted to the needs of the
present and the future.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

T H E P R E S ID E N T ’ S A N A L Y S I S O F T H E
BUDGET
The budget recommendations for the fiscal year 1958 are accom­
panied by revised estimates for the current fiscal year, 1957, and by
reports on the results of Government operations for the year ended
June 30, 1956.
The final results for the fiscal year 1956 show a budget surplus of
1,626 million dollars, a net decrease of 128 million dollars from the
preliminary figures reported in August in the midyear review of the
budget. The decline is due to the inclusion of transactions which
were not fully reported by August.
The current estimate of budget receipts for the fiscal year 1957
exceeds the estimate of 69.8 billion dollars made last August by 828
million dollars. This increase is due mainly to greater indicated
receipts from the individual income tax.
Budget expenditures for 1957 are now estimated to be 193 million
dollars less than the 69.1 billion dollars anticipated in the midyear
review. The principal changes in the estimated expenditures are:
(1) A downward revision of 1 billion dollars for the Department
of Agriculture, mainly because of reduced estimates of price sup­
port disbursements and higher estimates of commodity sales.
(2) A decline of 248 million dollars for the economic portion
of the mutual security program, partly because certain country
programs have been revised to place greater emphasis on longrange development projects.
(3) An increase of 586 million dollars for the Housing and
Home Finance Agency, mainly for advances to the Federal
National Mortgage Association for its secondary market opera­
tions.
(4) An increase of 497 million dollars in the estimated net
expenditures of the Export-import Bank, due to a larger volume
of loans and to lowered estimates of private participation in the
Bank’s loans.
Discussion of each of the major programs of the Government follows,
with emphasis on recommendations for the fiscal year 1958.
M A JO R NATION AL SECURITY

Events in recent months have dramatized the need for strong collec­
tive security. The military strength of the United States is a bul­
wark for world peace and freedom. A large share of the budget must
go to maintain the Nation’s military forces in their present high state
of readiness and to introduce new weapons. Also, effective support
must be given to the defense forces of other nations. Advances in




m27

nuclear technology must be applied to improving national defense and,
in increasing degree, to peacetime uses in the United States and the
rest of the free world.

Department oj Dejense, military junctions.—The defense program
involves four basic military missions in which each of the military
services has an active role. New and vastly superior weapons have
a profound impact on each mission and on the size and composition
of the military budget. The budget recommendations for the fiscal
year 1958 reflect adjustments that have been made in the contribu­
tions of the individual military departments to the four basic military
missions.
One mission is to maintain ready nuclear-air-retaliatory forces so
strong that they will deter a potential aggressor from initiating an
attack. Procurement in the fiscal year 1958 will provide for equipping
the heavy bomber wings of the Strategic Air Command with 45 all-jet
B-52 aircraft in place of the present smaller number of 30 B-36's.

m 28




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

The gradual elimination of strategic fighter wings, which are no longer
considered necessary, will be completed. The striking power of the
Navy will be enhanced by the addition of new and modernized attack
carriers, jet aircraft capable of higher speeds and higher altitudes,
atomic submarines, and guided m
issile ships.
A second mission is to build a defense system which will minimize
the chances of a successful attack on this continent. The Continental
Air Defense Command has been assigned operational control over all
forces and weapons made available for the air defense mission.
The Command’s radar warning network, extending from the central
Pacific around the northern perimeter of North America and across
the Atlantic approaches, will be largely in operation during the fiscal
year 1958. The interceptor squadrons of the Air Force will be further
strengthened with the delivery of still better aircraft, and the anti­
aircraft m
issile capabilities of the Army will be expanded. The
Navy’s antisubmarine warfare capability is being improved to meet
the threat of m
issiles launched from submarines.
A third mission is to maintain mobile and versatile forces suitably
deployed and ready for immediate action in case of aggression. Army
divisions are being reorganized into more flexible units supported with
the latest atomic weapons and with aviation units. In addition, the
Army will increase the number of atomic support commands which
T
are particularly suitable as back-up for the ground forces of allied
countries. Taking advantage of the greater firepower and mobility
gained from the new units and equipment, the number of Army
divisions will be reduced by one during the fiscal year 1958. The
greater mobility and effectiveness of tactical aircraft coupled with
the growing guided m
issile capabilities of the Army, permit a reduc­
tion in the number of Air Force tactical wings. The three Marine
divisions and air wings are now equipped with a variety of atomic
weapons and are continually improving their capability for am­
phibious assault operations.
A fourth mission, to maintain control of the essential sea areas and
lines of communication.in case of war, is primarily the task of the
Navy, although the Air Force and elements of the other services have
an important part. The modern ships, aircraft, and weapons being
added to the Armed Forces are improving capabilities for performing
this mission as well as the first three missions. As new ships are
added to the fleet, older ships will be retired and the number of active
ships in the fiscal year 1958 will remain about the same.
The means of accomplishing these basic military missions constantly
change as new weapons are introduced. The Secretary of Defense
recently issued a clarification of the basic roles and missions of the
military services. It covered the use of aircraft by the Army; the
adequacy of airlift; the development, procurement, and operation of




m 29

MESSAGE OF TH E PR E SID E N T

surface-to-air guided missiles; the operational deployment of inter­
mediate range ballistic missiles; and the tactical air support of the
Army.
New authority to incur obligations totaling 38.5 billion dollars for
the fiscal year 1958 is recommended for the military functions of the
Department of Defense. Expenditures are estimated to increase from
36 billion dollars in 1957 to 38 billion dollars in 1958.

1 Compares with new obligational authority of 33,187 million dollars in 1956 and 36,387 million dollars in
1957.

This budget provides for an average active duty military personnel
strength for the fiscal year 1958 of approximately 2.8 m
illion. The
Army, Navy, and Marine Corps w hold to about their current
ill
numbers while the Air Force will be increased by several thousand men.
Operation and maintenance costs will rise in the fiscal year 1958.
The larger number of bases and other installations and the growing
complexity of new weapons systems, particularly guided m
issiles and
aircraft, are the primary reasons for this increase.
Major procurement and production expenditures in the fiscal year
1958 are estimated to be 542 million dollars more than in the current
year. Expenditures for guided m
issiles w be up 35 percent; for ship
ill
construction, up about 12 percent; and for aircraft procurement w

ain at about the sam level. Expenditures for all other types of
e
major procurement are estimated to be about 2 percent less than in
the current fiscal year.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

EXPENDITURES FOR DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE— M ILITARY

The new obligational authority needed for the Air Force procure­
ment program for the fiscal year 1958 is less than it otherwise would
have been because of the additional appropriations for this purpose
voted by the Congress last year. Together, these appropriations will
provide sufficient funds for Air Force aircraft and related procure­
ment in the current year and in the fiscal year 1958.
Expenditures for military public works in the United States and
overseas will be about 14 percent above the current year. This
budget provides for proposed legislation to authorize new bases
and facilities for continental air defense, for further work on dispers­
ing and improving heavy bomber bases, and for essential facilities for
naval operating forces.
Research and development will continue at the same high level as
in the current fiscal year. When the portions of appropriations for
procurement, military personnel, and public works which contribute
to research and development, testing and evaluation are also con­
sidered, the total devoted to these purposes will be somewhat more
than the 5.2 billion dollars programed for the current fiscal year. A
steady military research and development effort must be maintained
over the years to assure a constant flow of new and more effective
weapons for the future.
Expenditures for the reserve components will increase in the fiscal
year 1958. Major emphasis will be placed on improving the quality
and combat readiness of the Reserve Forces through modernization
of equipment and better selection and training of reserve personnel.




MESSAGE OF TH E P R ESIDEN T

The overall quality and readiness of the Reserve Forces, already
higher than ever before in the peacetime history of the Nation, will
be even more effective by the end of the coming fiscal year.
Civil dejense.—All levels of government have made encouraging
progress in preparing for civil defense since the Federal Civil Defense
Act was approved in 1951. These gains have been partly offset by
the increasingly destructive capabilities of nuclear weapons. In the
light of these developments, the administration will transmit to
the Congress recommendations for amendment of the Federal Civil
Defense Act which will enable the Federal Government better to
meet its responsibilities. To achieve maximum results, civil defense
must continue to be a cooperative effort with State and local govern­
ments. Individual and local initiative and resourcefulness must be
our ultimate reliance during an initial recovery period.
This budget provides under existing legislation for extending civil
defense programs for public education, information, and training, and
for a larger Federal staff to give assistance to the States and cities.
Appropriations are included for an attack warning system which
will quickly transmit warnings from the Air Force to certain key
areas. Stockpiling of emergency hospital equipment and radiological
detection equipment will be continued; and a substantial program
of research on radiological defense, on shelter design, and on bombdamage assessment will be carried forward.
Funds for civil defense activities are included in the commerce and
housing section of this analysis.
Development and control oj atomic energy.—Until an agreement for
limitation of armaments is negotiated and an effective inspection sys­
tem is functioning, this Nation will continue to increase the number
and variety of nuclear weapons. In the fiscal year 1958, emphasis
will be placed on weapons for tactical purposes and weapons with
reduced radioactive fallout. The substantial present effort to develop
military propulsion reactors will be continued.
Efforts to develop the peaceful uses of atomic energy will be greatly
increased, particularly the development of reactors to produce atomic
power at competitive prices.
This budget provides for increased effort by the Atomic Energy
Commission to explore new power reactor concepts, to fabricate and
operate reactor experiments, and to develop the basic reactor tech­
nology essential to the Nation’s progress and leadership in the field.
Increased support will also be given to the growing activities by private
industry and public power bodies in power reactor development.
In the belief that basic responsibility for construction of large-scale
commercial power reactors should not have to be assumed by the

m 31

m32




M
ESSAGE O THE PRESIDENT
F

Federal Government, no funds for construction of new large-scale
reactors are proposed in this budget. A number of new proposals
from non-Federal interests are now being developed. However, if
acceptable proposals for non-Federal construction of promising reactor
types do not materialize within a reasonable time, a request will be
made to the Congress for funds for direct construction by the Federal
Government.
As a further and necessary step to facilitate industry’s investment
in atomic powerplants, legislation will again be proposed to authorize
the Government to supplement commercially available insurance
against liability arising from possible nuclear accidents.
More resources will be applied to the longer term effort to develop
thermonuclear power reactors. Increased research is planned for
1958 on the problems arising from the numerous and extensive appli­
cations of atomic energy, such as reactor safety, radioactive waste
disposal, and the biological effects of radiation. At the same time,
support of research in nuclear physics and in new uses of atomic
energy in biology, medicine, agriculture, and industry will be strength­
ened. Also, the budget provides for increases in equipment grants
and in teacher training to improve education in nuclear technology
and to help alleviate the shortage of nuclear scientists and engineers.
In order to help other nations develop their own atomic energy
programs, the 1958 budget provides for training centers in the United
States and abroad, equipment grants, and other technical assistance
from appropriations for the Atomic Energy Commission and the
mutual security program. Four nations have already accepted and
many others are expected to accept the United States offer to share the
costs of building research reactors. A number of nations have indi­
cated interest in procuring power reactors in this country, and the
Export-import Bank w consider applications for loans to finance
ill
such procurement. The budget also includes funds for United States
participation in a second world conference on the peaceful uses of
atomic energy to be held in calendar year 1958.
Stockpiling and defense production.—By the end of the current fiscal
year, the stockpile of strategic and critical materials, such as rubber,
aluminum, copper, and nickel, will have reached a value greater than 6
billion dollars. Further acquisitions toward the stockpile objectives
will be limited in most instances to (1) materials for which contracts
have already been made; (2) materials which can be procured at
favorable prices and which will serve to maintain the mobilization
base; and (3) materials obtained in exchange for surplus agricultural
products.

assistance portion of the mutual security program. This assistance
bolsters the military forces of countries faced with a threat of external
aggression or internal subversion.
Military assistance plans for the fiscal year 1958 have been related
to the plans for this Nation’s military establishment. As in the case
of United States forces, a large part of the funds will be used for new
types of weapons for air defense.
In the fiscal years 1957 and 1958, an increasing amount of military
assistance equipment is to be furnished on a reimbursable rather than
a grant basis. Changes in legislation will be recommended to facilitate
these sales.
The level of unexpended balances for military assistance will have
been reduced for 5 successive years. The Department of Defense
has made significant improvements in the operation of this program
in this fiscal year, especially in the timing of orders and the utiliza­
tion of funds.
The new obligational authority of 2,450 m
illion dollars recommended
in this budget for military assistance has been included as an appro­
priation to the President, as in previous years. Consideration is
being given as to what pattern of appropriations will best serve the
aims of the Government in providing military assistance.

INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS AND FINANCE

The United States can work toward its goal of lasting peace by
continuing to help its friends overseas protect their freedom from
foreign domination and better their economic conditions. This
budget is designed to do that. It also^provides funds to promote

m34




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

international understanding through a wider exchange of ideas and
persons, and to extend a helping hand to refugees from tyranny and
victims of famine.
In the conduct of our international affairs it is necessary to allow
for appropriate flexibility in choosing the proper channel to meet each
particular situation. In many instances the most effective way to
achieve United States objectives, particularly in the political area, is
to work through the United Nations. In other instances it may be
more effective to utilize regional organizations such as the North
Atlantic Treaty Organization and the Organization of American States.
The Government will, of course, continue to conduct a major part of
its economic and military assistance bilaterally, by dealing directly
with other governments through conventional channels, including the
Export-import Bank. In addition, the International Bank for Re­
construction and Development and the International Monetary Fund
will undoubtedly continue their active and sound programs of lending
for economic development and of strengthening the exchange systems
of their members, relying in part on the capital subscriptions and
guaranties of the United States Government. The United States
Government will also work through the many private welfare organi­
zations operating abroad.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

T h e G overn m en t’s varied overseas activities have been, and are
being, regularly review ed. F or exam ple, recom m endations to im prove
our m utual security operations are being developed b y the President’s
C itizen A dvisers on the M u tu al Security Program . Special studies
are also being con du cted b y the Senate Foreign R elations and H ouse
Foreign Affairs Com m ittees. A special message on the m utual secu­
rity program will be sent to the Congress after due consideration has
been given to the recom m endations and studies that have been
com pleted.
Mutual security program , economic, technical, and other.— In order
that the U nited States m ay continue to help cooperating countries to
develop their econom ies and to m eet the burdens of m aintaining m ili­
tary strength, the budget provides for an appropriation of 1,950
m illion dollars for the fiscal year 1958 for the nonm ilitary portion of
the m utual security program . Th e m ilitary assistance portion of the
m utual security program was discussed in the m ajor national security
section o f this analysis. T ota l appropriations recom m ended for the
tw o portions together in 1958 are 4,400 m illion dollars, com pared
w ith 3,804 m illion dollars enacted for 1957 and 4,860 m illion dollars
recom m ended for 1957 one year ago in the 1957 budget.
Expenditures for econom ic assistance are estim ated at a m oderately
higher level in the fiscal year 1958 than in the current fiscal year,
carrying on our help in the developm ent o f the econ om ic potential
o f less developed countries. M a n y o f these countries have recently
w on their independence. Such developm ent should add to the
stability of their institutions, and tend to rem ove long-run causes o f
international friction. A significant part o f the expenditures for
econom ic developm ent will be in the form o f loans.
W hen the special message on m utual security is presented to the
Congress, the mutual security appropriations recom m ended in this
budget will be identified with specific activities, insofar as the kinds
and am ounts o f assistance can be reasonably forecast. H ow ever,
there are m any changing situations in the world tod a y and it is
necessary to be able to m eet these situations quickly and flexibly.
The am ount recom m ended for the econ om ic portion o f the M u tu al
Security Program includes certain funds to be appropriated on this
basis.
Middle East .— A n im portant exam ple o f this type of changing
situation was discussed in the recent message on the M id dle East.
T h e message emphasized the im portance o f that area of the w orld
and recom m ended policies designed to strengthen the countries o f
that area. C urrently available funds can be used to m eet 1957
requirem ents. T h e recom m ended 1958 appropriations o f 4,400 million

4 00000— 57--------in




m35

m36




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

dollars for the total mutual security program include 200 million
dollars to be available for discretionary use in the M iddle East, in
addition to the specific country programs for the area. In order
to make most effective use of these funds, especially in relation to
solving some of the current problems, it is essential that adequate
flexibility be permitted in their use.

International investments and loans.— Loans b y the E x p o rt-im p o rt
B an k for developm ent projects and for assisting the export o f U nited
States goods are expected to continue at a high level in the com in g
fiscal year.
T h e estim ated increase since 1956 in expenditures o f the B an k
results b o th from the current rate o f loans and from reduced esti­
m ates o f private participation in the B an k ’s loans because o f attrac­
tive alternative private investm ent opportunities in the U nited States.
D espite rising collections o f the E x p o rt-im p o rt B an k from loan
repaym ents, the increase in expenditures is estim ated to result in a
change from net receipts o f 90 m illion dollars in the fiscal year 1956
to net expenditures o f 243 m illion dollars in 1958. W hile this budget
proposes no increase in the B an k 's presently available borrow in g
authority, it may later becom e necessary to request som e increase in
b orrow ing authority to m eet future needs.
The International M onetary Fund will be the major source of funds
to strengthen the reserve position of the United Kingdom at the pres­
ent time. The Fund is an international organization to which the
United States has made substantial amounts of capital available in
the past. Therefore, a drawing on these funds does not appear as
an expenditure in the budget now.
The E xport-im port Bank recently announced a line of credit
against securities to the United Kingdom for the purchase of United
States products.
The Government of the United Kingdom has also sought a waiver
of the 81 million dollar interest payment that was due last month
under the terms of the Anglo-American Financial Agreement of 1945
and the related lend-lease and surplus property settlement. The
exact applicability of the waiver provisions is now not clear. Since
there have been changes in the conditions envisaged at the time the
agreement was signed, recommendations will shortly be made to the
Congress for appropriate modification of the present language of
the Agreement so as to carry out the spirit of the original intention.
This interest payment has been excluded from the estimates of
receipts for the fiscal year 1957.

Foreign information and exchange activities.— The intensified world­
wide ideological conflict emphasizes the importance of the role of
both the Government and private organizations in exchanging infor­
mation, persons, and ideas abroad. Overseas information services

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

EXPEN DITU R ES F O R FO R E IG N IN F O R M A T IO N AND E X C H A N G E

and cultural exchanges are designed to facilitate sym pathetic under­
standing of A m erican life, culture, and institutions b y other peoples.
A n oth er m ajor role o f these program s is to dem onstrate to the people
o f other nations the w ay in w hich A m erican policies and ob jectives
are in keeping w ith their own aspirations.
This budget recom m ends that expenditures in the fiscal year i958
for the entire range o f foreign inform ation and exchange activities—
including exchanges under the Fulbright and S m ith -M u n dt legislation,
and cultural and trade fair program s abroad— be increased b y 42
m illion dollars over the 1957 estimate. This will perm it extension of
this w ork within the free w orld, especially in Asia and A frica, as well
as providing m ore inform ation to those peoples n ot y e t free. E m ­
phasis will be placed on person-to-person con tacts on b oth official and
unofficial levels.
Conduct o j foreign affairs.— T h e tasks o f the D epartm en t of State
have been steadily extended, b oth in W ashington and in a grow ing
num ber of overseas posts. T h e budget recom m endations continue
to strengthen the staff and facilities of the D epartm ent. E stim ated
expenditures in 1958 for the con d u ct o f foreign affairs, including
buildings, are 194 m illion dollars, 40 m illion dollars m ore than in
1957.
COMMERCE AND HOUSING

T h e capital investm ent in several Federal program s for com m erce
and housing plays an im portant role in the continued grow th o f our
econom y. In the fiscal year 1958, the G overnm ent will (1) carry

4 00 0 0 0 — 57— — iv

m38




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

forw ard im provem ents in transportation services, (2) acquire facilities
and equipm ent essential to provide better and m ore econom ical
postal service, and (3) assist local com m unities to com plete an in­
creasing num ber o f projects to foster orderly com m u nity d evelop ­
m ent and to rem ove slums. A t the same time, the G overn m en t is
taking steps to aid buyers o f homes obtain a reasonable share o f the
savings w hich help to supply the credit necessary to m aintain a
satisfactory level o f private housing construction.
B u d g et expenditures for com m erce and housing program s, in the
aggregate, are expected to decline from 2.3 billion dollars in the fiscal
year 1957 to 1.7 billion dollars in 1958. Principal changes include
the proposed adjustm ents in postal rates and other legislation
designed to reduce the postal deficit and the anticipated reductions
in tem porary G overnm ent loans to finance m ortgage purchases.
O ther expenditures will rise to help m eet the dem ands o f a grow ing
econ om y for transportation facilities, housing aids, and com m u n ity
developm ent.
Promotion of aviation.— C ivil and m ilitary use o f the Federal
airways system continues to grow rapidly. T h e increasing num ber o f
com m ercial, private, and m ilitary aircraft m ust be able to fly safely
and on schedule. T h e m ilitary jet aircraft already in use and the jet
airliners that will be operating b y 1960 create a whole new range o f
problem s. T h e ca p acity o f the air traffic con trol system m ust keep
pace.

The comprehensive appraisal of emerging needs for aviation facilities
announced in the budget message last year will be completed soon.
This will set the broad outline for the Federal airways system of the
future. In the meantime, we must install now the best available
traffic control equipment and techniques to keep abreast of the
growing demand.
T h e 413 m illion dollars of new obligational authority recom m en ded
for the C ivil A eronautics A dm inistration for 1958 include 150 m illion
dollars to procure and install airways facilities. These include radar
installations, better com m unications, and airport approach lights.
In addition, a supplem ental appropriation o f 26 m illion dollars will be
requested in 1957 to cover the initial cost o f integrating tw o existing
short-range air navigational system s into a single system capable of
m eeting the navigational needs o f all users o f the airspace.
T h e recom m en ded 1958 appropriations for the C ivil A eronautics
A dm inistration include 195 m illion dollars to operate the Federal
airways system and to m aintain high safety standards in aircraft
design and operation. Th e 1958 estim ate is abou t 40 percent a bove
the 1957 am ount.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

Grants to communities for airport construction and improvement
will increase. To meet the need for an additional airport for the
District of Columbia, a supplemental appropriation of 35 million
dollars will be requested for the fiscal year 1957. Although the Con­
gress has been studying alternative solutions, the proposal for a new
airport at the Burke, Virginia, site still appears to be the best long­
term solution to W ashington’s airport needs.
The success of this country in military and civil aeronautics depends
heavily on the research and development programs of the National
Advisory Committee for Aeronautics. The recommended appropri­
ations o f 118 million dollars will enable the Committee to give further
emphasis to basic research upon which the development of the aircraft
o f the future must depend. This amount will also permit the acqui­
sition o f new, highly specialized facilities for investigation of problems
encountered under widely varying conditions of flight.
Estimated budget expenditures in the fiscal year 1958 for all Fed­
eral aids to aviation, including the continuing subsidy payments b y the
C ivil Aeronautics Board to certain airlines, will total 464 million
dollars, 85 percent more than the amount spent in 1956.
Government aids to aviation confer substantial special benefits
upon the users of the airspace. As the cost of providing these bene­
fits rises, it becomes increasingly appropriate for the users to share
with the general taxpayers in paying for them.

Highways.— Legislation enacted last year authorized the largest
roadbuilding program in history. In accordance with this legisla­
tion, expenditures for the Federal-aid highway programs of the
Department of Commerce in 1957 and later years will be made from a
separately financed highway trust fund. The receipts and expendi­
tures of the trust fund are discussed later in this section.
Budget expenditures for highways are now limited to forest high­
ways and other direct Federal construction. They are estimated at
42 million dollars in the fiscal year 1958.
Promotion oj water transportation.— The worldwide shortage of
modern oceangoing ships emphasizes the importance of the ship
replacement program begun 2 years ago b y the Department of Com ­
merce. M ost of the United States merchant fleet was built during
W orld W ar II and should be replaced over the next 15 to 20 years. In
order that construction may be scheduled on an orderly basis, the
Department is entering into long-term contracts with subsidized ship
operators for the replacement of their ships. It is also guaranteeing
ship mortgages and using other incentives which do not require
substantial expenditures of Federal funds to encourage construction
of other new ships.




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

A s the next installm ent in the replacem ent program , the b ud get
includes 120 m illion dollars in 1958 appropriations for ship con struc­
tion and for m aritim e research. T h e 1958 program w ould perm it
construction o f a new sister ship for the superliner United States
and several smaller ships. C onstruction will be well underw ay in
1958 on the nuclear-pow ered m erchant ship being built jo in tly b y the
D epartm en t of C om m erce and the A tom ic E nergy C om m ission under
previous appropriations.
Expenditures for ship construction will n ot increase substantially
until the fiscal year 1959, prim arily because o f the long period required
to get w ork underway. Other expenditures for water transportation
are prim arily for the C oast G uard and for ship operating subsidies.
Postal service.— O ver the past few years the P ost Office D epartm en t
has introduced m a jor econom ies in the processing and handling o f
mail. These econom ies, how ever, have on ly partially offset the rising
costs resulting from a larger m ail volum e, higher salaries, increased
prices for supplies and equipm ent, and especially the extension o f city
delivery service to unprecedented numbers o f new suburban residential
developm ents. As a result, if present postal rates are n ot adjusted
to cover costs, net expenditures o f 642 m illion dollars will be required
in the fiscal year 1958 to m ake up for insufficient postal receipts.
T h e adjustm ents in rates recom m ended in this budget are designed
to increase postal revenues b y 654 m illion dollars in the fiscal year
1958. I f this recom m endation is approved b y the Congress, a supple­
m ental appropriation, tentatively estim ated at 70 m illion dollars,
will be proposed to perm it investm ent in equipm ent and facilities
necessary for m ore efficient handling o f the ever-increasing volum e o f
mail. T h e budget figures reflect these recom m endations. A lso, the
Post Office D epartm en t should be specifically reim bursed for the
cost— estim ated at 28 m illion dollars in 1958— o f services it is required
b y law or international agreem ent to perform free or at reduced rates
for nonprofit associations and other special groups.
Oommunity development and facilities .— Th e first slum clearance
p roject under legislation enacted in 1949 was brought to a close last
spring, and an estim ated 40 m ore projects will be com pleted b y the
end o f 1958. M ore im portant, b y that time 285 projects will be in
process o f actual clearance and redevelopm ent, and plans will be under­
w a y for 246 m ore— m any o f these in smaller cities. In addition to the
extensive private investm ent in redeveloped areas, these 572 p rojects
will u ltim ately involve total costs o f m ore than 2.5 billion dollars, o f
w hich Federal capital grants will provide an estim ated 1.2 billion
dollars.
T o underwrite the Federal share o f the cost o f this program , legis­
lation is recom m ended to provide iiew obligational authority o f 250

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

m illion dollars a year for 2 years. B u dget expenditures in 1958 are
estim ated at 47 m illion dollars and will gradually increase in later
years.
Public housing 'programs.— Th e H ousing A ct o f 1956 authorized the
P u b lic H ousing A dm inistration to con tract w ith local p u b lic agencies
fo r construction and operation o f 70,000 additional units o f low -rent
p u b lic housing, at the rate o f 35,000 new units a year. T hese units
will be particularly helpful in m eeting the needs o f low -in com e
fam ilies displaced as m ore urban renewal sites are cleared.
M a n y small com m unities which need low -rent p ublic housing units
have unnecessary difficulty in qualifying for Federal aid because o f the
requirem ent for a w orkable program to elim inate or preven t slum
con dition s in their areas. Since the benefits to be obtained in small
com m unities from this requirem ent d o n ot ju stify the burdens and
expense involved, such com m unities should be exem pted from it.
B y the end o f the fiscal year 1958, the P u b lic H ousing A dm in istra­
tion expects to dispose o f all rem aining war and em ergency housing
units from an inven tory that originally exceeded 900,000 such units.
In addition, a substantial start will have been m ade in sales o f housing
units and com m ercial properties in the G overn m en t-ow n ed co m ­
m unities o f Oak R idge, Tennessee, and R ichland, W ashington.
College housing .— R ising college enrollm ents, plus the attractiveness
o f a very low statutory interest rate on Federal loans, h ave caused
sharp increases in applications fo r loans for college dorm itories and
related facilities. T o continue the present com m itm ent level o f 250
m illion dollars a year, additional borrow ing authority o f 175 m illion
dollars is requested for the fiscal year 1958. A lso, a m ore realistic
form ula for interest rates on these loans should be p rovid ed in
legislation. This form ula should be based on current Treasury
borrow in g costs for com parable maturities.
A id s to private housing .— T h e G overnm ent encourages private h ous­
ing prim arily through insurance of m ortgages b y the Federal H ousin g
A dm inistration and guaranties o f loans b y the Veterans A dm in istra­
tion. Increased dem ands fo r credit for other purposes last year m ade
these insured and guaranteed m ortgages u nattractive to m an y private
lenders at the m axim um interest rates then perm itted. A s a result,
m any p otential buyers were unable to b orrow for the purchase o f
hom es, and as the dem and fell off, builders curtailed the num ber of
new hom es begun. T o bring interest rates on insured m ortgages into
line w ith m arket rates of interest, the Federal H ousing A dm inistration
has perm itted adjustm ents in all rates w hich were n ot already at their




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

statu tory ceilings. Legislation is recom m ended to perm it similar
interest rates on loans guaranteed b y the Veterans A dm inistration,
so that m ore veterans m ay obtain these loans.
P rivate lenders cooperating with the H ousing and H om e Finance
A g en cy under the volu n tary hom e tnortgage credit program have
p rovid ed insured or guaranteed loans for m an y veterans and other
hom e buyers living in rem ote areas as well as for m em bers o f m inority
groups otherwise unable to obtain private credit. This program
should be extended for 3 years b eyon d the present expiration date of
June 30, 1957.
T h e Veterans A dm inistration makes direct housing loans to veterans
in areas where credit is hard to obtain. A dju stm ent o f interest rates
on guaranteed loans and extension o f the volu n tary hom e m ortgage
credit program should m ake the funds n ow available adequate for the
direct loan program . Legislation is also proposed to adjust the
interest rate on direct loans so as to keep it the same as on guaranteed
loans, in con form ity with past practice.
T h e direct loan program for all veterans and the guaranty program
fo r W orld W ar I I veterans expire in July 1958. T o help m ake ade­
quate m ortgage funds available at that time, additional authority
m a y be needed to perm it the Federal H ousing A dm inistration to
liberalize the terms under w hich it insures m ortgages for veterans and
nonveterans alike.
Federal National Mortgage Association .— U nder its secondary m arket
functions, the Federal N ational M ortgage A ssociation purchases b oth
insured and guaranteed m ortgages at prevailing m arket prices.
A djustm ents in interest rates on these m ortgages should encourage
private lenders to reenter this m arket, thus reducing the volum e of
m ortgages offered to the A ssociation. H ow ever, as a result o f the
substantial purchases m ade over the past several m onths, the effective
borrow ing authority o f the A ssociation will be fully com m itted before
the close of the fiscal year 1957.
T o enable the A ssociation to continue m aking available a reasonable
m inim um of m ortgage funds, new obligational authority in two form s
should be p rovid ed b y legislation early in the present session o f the
Congress. First, the G overnm ent should be authorized to b u y an
additional 100 m illion dollars o f preferred stock o f the A ssociation.
This will allow the A ssociation to obtain up to an additional 1 billion
dollars privately, through the sale o f nonguaranteed debentures to pri­
vate investors. Second, the A ssociation should be authorized to
borrow an additional 700 m illion dollars from the Treasury. O ne-half
o f this borrow ing authority should be m ade available in the fiscal year
1957, and the rem aining half in 1958. I f the Congress provides ade­
quate authority to draw tem porarily on the Treasury when necessary,
it should be possible to finance privately the bulk o f the secondary

m43

m44




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

m arket operations in 1958. B u dget expenditures for such tem porary
Treasury loans are estim ated at 203 million dollars in the fiscal year
1958.
In other operations of the A ssociation, substantial com m itm ents are
anticipated in b o th 1957 and 1958 to purchase m ortgages insured under
the urban renewal, m ilitary fam ily, elderly fam ily, and other specially
designated housing program s. A dditional legislation to authorize new
purchases am ounting to 250 million dollars, including 50 m illion dollars
for cooperative housing, is recom m ended for the fiscal year 1958.
Other aids to business.— The Small Business A dm inistration has
been providin g effective assistance to help small concerns obtain
adequate financing and a fair share o f G overnm ent contracts. Because
o f the difficulties m an y small businesses encounter in obtaining ade­
quate bank credit in a m oney m arket su bject to h eavy com petin g
dem ands, applications for loans have been increasing. A vailable funds
will shortly be exhausted, and additional appropriations o f 45 million
dollars in 1957 and 66 m illion dollars in 1958 are requested. These
figures assume extension o f the basic legislation for the Small Business
A dm inistration w hich expires on June 30, 1957.

The fees of the Patent Office in the Department of Commerce
should be adjusted to make the Office more nearly self-supporting.
Under an 8-year program initiated last year, substantial progress is
now being made to reduce the backlog of pending patent applications.
Area redevelopment— proposed legislation.— D espite continuing high
levels o f em ploym ent and incom e, pockets o f u n em ploym ent persist
in several areas. Legislation is again recom m ended to authorize the
Secretary of C om m erce, w ith the assistance o f other appropriate
agencies, to provide loans and other aids to com m unities w hich seem
to be in chronic econom ic distress. This aid will help those co m ­
m unities in attem pting to solve their basic problem s.
Disaster insurance, loans, and relief.— T h e experim ental program for
Federal insurance against flood losses, w hich was recom m ended and
enacted last year, will soon be underway. A supplem ental app ro­
priation of 100 m illion dollars is recom m ended for this fiscal year to
finance initial operations. A n additional appropriation o f 4 m illion
dollars for adm inistrative expenses is recom m ended for 1958.
T h e 1958 recom m endations also include 12 m illion dollars under
proposed legislation for disaster loans b y the Small Business A dm in ­
istration.
Civil defense.— For budget classification purposes, expenditures for
civil defense are grouped with those for peacetime disasters, The




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

civil defense program was discussed, however, in the major national
security section of this analysis.

Highway and housing trust funds .— Under legislation enacted last
year, the Federal share of the new highway program will be financed
from proceeds of certain excises on motor fuels, tires, and vehicles.
These receipts are deposited in a highway trust fund.
T h e legislation authorized Federal grants averaging abou t 2 billion
dollars a year for a 13-year period to cover 90 percent o f the cost of
com pleting the Interstate H ighw ay System — an integrated network
o f efficient and safe roads linking m ajor centers of population and
industry. Increased grants am ounting to 875 million dollars for the
fiscal year 1958 were also provided for prim ary, secondary, and urban
highways not in the Interstate H ighw ay System . Prudent planning
is continuing in cooperation with the States in order to assure m axi­
m um value for each dollar spent.

Expenditures from the trust fund in the fiscal year 1958 for
Federal-aid highways are estim ated at 1.7 billion dollars and are
expected to rise gradually in later years to nearly 3 billion dollars
annually. Th e excess o f receipts over expenditures in the early years
will accum ulate in the trust fund for later use. Balances in the fund

AGRICULTURE AND AGRICULTURAL RESOURCES

A griculture is con fron ted w ith serious adjustm ent problem s that
stem from international as well as dom estic agricultural developm ents.
T ech n ological advances in agriculture b y other nations are resulting
in increased p rodu ction which in m an y instances has restricted U nited
States export m arkets. These problem s are further com plicated b y
our ow n im proved ca p acity to produce as well as b y the large agri­
cultural inventories held b y the C om m od ity C redit C orporation.
T h e agricultural program s o f the Federal G overn m en t are designed
to m eet these problem s and to foster long-run im provem ents and
adjustm ents in the N a tio n ’s farm econ om y. T h e soil bank legislation
enacted last year is helping to curtail crop prod u ction and support
farm in com e; it also facilitates the shifting o f cropland to uses m ore
consistent w ith long-term conservation objectives. O ther Federal
program s are helping to m ove large quantities o f fo o d and other farm
p rod u cts into consum ption at hom e and abroad. R esearch program s

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

have been enlarged to find w ays to reduce m arketing and prod u ction
costs and to develop new industrial uses and other perm anent m arket

search, and special attention is being given in the rural developm ent
program to low -in com e farmers.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

stantially b elow the am ount spent in 1956. H ow ever, the decrease
from 1956 is m ore than offset b y increases in expenditures for the soil
ban k and other agricultural program s.
In the fiscal year 1956, retirem ent o f all outstanding certificates of
interest used in financing previous price support loans, and curtailed
purchases o f U nited States cotton b y foreign buyers in anticipation
o f m ore favorable prices, contributed to the high net price support
expenditures in that year.
In the fiscal year 1957, no funds will be required for the redem ption
o f certificates of interest. In addition, increased sales o f farm co m ­
m odities abroad, particularly cotton , are expected to decrease net
bu d get expenditures for price supports still further.
In the fiscal year 1958, exports o f price supported com m odities are
expected to be less than in 1957. This factor, which tends to in­
crease net price support expenditures, will be partially offset b y the
initial effects of crop acreage reductions under the soil bank. Th e
full effects of the soil bank on price support expenditures will com e in
later years.
U nder the acreage reserve program o f the soil bank, farmers are
com pensated for loss o f net incom e resulting from their volu n tary
w ithdraw al o f land from crop production. U nder the conservation
reserve program o f the soil bank, th ey receive rent for other cropland
placed in cover crops and reforestation and also receive paym ents to
cov er part of the cost o f carrying ou t certain conservation practices.
Expenditures for b oth program s are estim ated to total 1.3 billion
dollars in 1958, som ewhat m ore than in 1957.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

U nder title I of the Agricultural Trade D evelop m en t and Assistance
A ct of 1954 (P. L. 480), substantial quantities of farm products have
been disposed of abroad in return for foreign currencies. This title
expires on June 30, 1957. It should be extended for 1 year and the
present legal lim it of 3 billion dollars on the permissible loss under this
program should be increased b y 1 billion dollars. E xtension for
a 1-year period will enable the Congress to consider alternative m eas­
ures that will contribute to a continued developm ent o f norm al export
m arkets.
T h e new obligational authority recom m ended for the fiscal year
1958 for price support, supply, and purchase program s o f the C om ­
m od ity C redit C orporation is m ade up o f (1) 1,240 m illion dollars to
restore the capital im pairm ent o f the C orporation experienced in 1956,
m ainly from price-support losses, and (2) 637 m illion dollars to reim ­
burse the C orporation for costs and losses incurred in 1956 under title
I o f the Agricultural T rade D evelop m en t and Assistance A ct.
Rural electrification j rural telephones, and farm credit.— Th is budget
continues strong support for the rural electrification and rural tele­
phone program s. I t provides for new electrification loans totaling
185 m illion dollars and new telephone loans totaling 80 m illion dollars
in the fiscal year 1958, the same am ount o f loan approvals as antici­
pated in 1957. D isbursem ents on loans and adm inistrative expenses
are expected to result in bu d get expenditures o f 265 m illion dollars in
1958, which is 31 m illion dollars m ore than in 1957 and 48 m illion
dollars m ore than in 1956.
B u dget expenditures for the credit program s o f the Farm ers’
H om e Adm inistration, exclusive o f farm housing loans which are
included in the com m erce and housing section o f this analysis o f the
budget, are estim ated at 294 m illion dollars in the fiscal year 1958.
T h e substantial rise of 109 m illion dollars in estim ated annual expendi­
tures since 1956 reflects in part the legislation enacted last year
expanding the scope o f this a gen cy’s authority to refinance farm debts
and to m ake loans to farmers whose farms are smaller than fam ily size.
T h e increase results also from the operating loans estim ated to be
m ade in designated counties as a part o f the rural developm ent
program and from the additional credit needs o f farmers suffering from
continued drought and other econ om ic disasters.
In connection w ith the loan program of the Farm ers’ H om e A d ­
m inistration, legislation will be proposed to m od ify the present for­
mula for the distribution o f loan funds am ong States and Territories.
T h e budget also provides for som e increase in the authority to app ro­
priate for loans under title I o f the B ankhead-Jones Farm T enant A ct.

In accordance with the proposals of the H oover Commission, legis­
lation will be recommended to liquidate the Agricultural Marketing

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

Act revolving fund by transferring its assets to the Treasury. As of
June 30, 1956, this fund had assets of 186 million dollars, consisting
of 150 million dollars of the capital stock of the central and regional
banks for cooperatives and 36 million dollars of balances with the
Treasury.
Agricultural land and water resources.— A substantial increase in
budget expenditures for the conservation and development of land
and water resources is provided for in this budget. Cost-sharing
payments for conservation practices under the soil bank, which were
begun in the current fiscal year, are a major addition to the previous
level of conservation expenditures.
Under the Great Plains conservation program, which was author­
ized by legislation enacted last year, long-term contracts will be
entered into with farmers whereby they agree to carry out specified
soil management and land-use practices. The budget provides for
20 million dollars of new obligational authority for the Great Plains
conservation program in 1958.
Spending under the program authorized by the Watershed Protec­
tion and Flood Prevention Act is estimated to increase in 1958.
Funds are provided in the budget for the continuing cost of some 83
projects underway in 1957 and for the Federal share of first-year costs
on approximately 80 additional projects expected to be started by local
groups in 1958.
Research and other agricultural services.— The expansion of research
and educational programs of the Department of Agriculture, which
was undertaken at the beginning of this administration, will be con­
tinued under this budget. Efficiency in agricultural production,
development of new industrial uses for farm products, and expansion
of markets for farm commodities will continue to be emphasized in
order to advance the long-run interests of both farmers and consumers.
As a part of the rural development program, specialized research,
technical assistance, and credit will be provided to assist State and local
groups to develop and improve economic opportunities in rural areas
with low average family income. The Federal Government and
States and local groups are now working jointly in designated pilot
counties.
Federal intermediate credit banks trust fund.— In accordance with the
Farm Credit Act of 1956, the production credit corporations were
merged into the Federal intermediate credit banks as of January 1,
1957, and provision was made for the retirement of the Government’s*
capital in the banks and for their eventual ownership by the produc­
tion credit associations. Because of this change in financial struc-




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

ture, the transactions of the banks are being carried as trust fund
expenditures starting January 1, 1957.
In the fiscal year 1958, the total loans and other outlays of these
banks are estimated at 2,201 million dollars; total collections, prin­
cipally from loan repayments, at 2,159 million dollars; the resulting
net outlay of the trust fund is an estimated 42 million dollars.
At the time the Farm Credit Act of 1956 was approved last year,
the lack of adequate protection of the Government’s interest in the
surplus of the intermediate credit banks was pointed out. The
Government’s interest should be protected, even though the prospect
of dissolution or liquidation of any bank is remote.
NATURAL RESOURCES

The development and conservation of the resources of America are
vital to the present and future strength of the Nation. They must be
a concern not only of the Federal Government, but of everyone.
Individual enterprise and State and local participation are essential
to effective development of the Nation’s soils and forests, water,
minerals, fuels, and fisheries.
Federal budget expenditures for natural resources in the fiscal year
1958 are estimated at 1.5 billion dollars, 167 million dollars more
than in 1957. In addition to their general economic value, many of
the resource development programs produce substantial revenues for
the Government.
The policies enunciated in the budget message with respect to the
present active competition for labor, materials, and equipment in the
construction industry and to the rate of Federal construction expendi­
tures are especially applicable to natural resource programs.
Land and water resources.— The Presidential Advisory Committee
on Water Resources Policy has recommended national policies and
improved administrative organization to bring about the best use of
water resources. This budget provides for certain of these recom­
mendations which can be achieved by budgetary action. Important
among these is expansion of the collection of basic data needed for
planning water resource developments. Legislative proposals to carry
out other recommendations of the Committee will be transmitted to
the Congress as developed.
The Corps of Engineers and the Bureau of Reclamation will con­
tinue construction on 299 going projects for flood control, navigation,
irrigation, water supply, and power. Construction of 38 of these
projects will be completed in 1958.
This budget provides for starting construction on certain new
projects which are now authorized. It is recommended that the
Bureau of Reclamation start 6 irrigation and water-supply projects,

m 51

m52




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

and the Corps of Engineers start 7 navigation projects, 13 floodprotection projects, 3 flood-control reservoirs, and a powerplant at
an existing installation, as well as some small projects to be selected
by the Secretary of the Army. Advance planning on these new
projects has reached the stage where the design and scope of the
major structure have been clearly determined and a sound estimate
of cost has been prepared. First-year expenditures for these new
starts are estimated at 12 million dollars. The total estimated cost
to complete these projects is 300 million dollars.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

R ecom m endation s for related watershed and flood prevention
activities of the D epartm en t o f A griculture were discussed in the
section on agriculture and agricultural resources.

Work is underway on the comprehensive Upper Colorado River
Basin development which the Congress authorized during the past
session. Legislation is still needed, however, to permit the Fryingpan-Arkansas multiple-purpose project to proceed. Appropriations
which will enable the Bureau of Reclamation to initiate this construc­
tion are included under proposed legislation for 1958.
T h is b u d get also includes 10 m illion dollars under proposed legisla­
tion to enable the C orps o f Engineers to participate in 1958 w ith States,
local governm ents, and private groups in the developm ent o f partner­
ship water resources projects, such as the B ruces E d d y R eservoir in
Id ah o and the O roville R eservoir in California, neither o f w hich has
y et been authorized. A lso, where feasible and in the p ublic interest,
non-Federal interests will be encouraged to participate w ith the F e d ­
eral G overnm ent in certain previously authorized projects now in
various stages of planning or construction. Similar partnership ar­
rangem ents are being considered b y the Bureau o f R eclam ation.
In previous years this adm inistration has recom m ended legislation
to provide that the Federal G overnm ent m ake paym ents to owners
of non-Federal w ater resources projects when Federal hydroelectric
pow er developm ents benefit from these projects. In simple equity,
the G overnm ent should pay for such benefits in the same w ay that
licensees m ust p ay for the benefits they derive from Federal or other
projects. The Federal P ow er A c t should be am ended during this
session to provide for such Federal paym ents.

The Small Reclamation Projects Act of 1956 is a step forward in
Federal, State, and local cooperation. Appropriations to permit the
Bureau of Reclamation to proceed with the program will be requested
as soon as the basic legislation is amended to correct deficiencies with
respect to the responsibility for approval of project proposals by the
executive branch, which were pointed out at the time the legislation
was approved.
To assure efficient use of resources and to safeguard the public
investment, the 1958 budget includes funds for the Bureau of Reclama­
tion and the Corps of Engineers to make general investigations and to
prepare project designs that are needed prior to construction of water
resources projects. Also, an appropriation of 1 million dollars is in­
cluded under proposed legislation to permit immediate initiation of
planning of the most urgently needed projects expected to be author­
ized in river and harbor and flood-control legislation early in this
session of the Congress. Presidential approval of the measure enacted
during the last session was withheld primarily because many of the

M53

m54




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

projects included had not been reviewed in accordance with estab­
lished procedures.
As a further step in coping with the growing water scarcity, increased
appropriations are recommended in the fiscal year 1958 for research
and pilot-plant operations for converting saline water to fresh water
for municipal, industrial, and agricultural uses. This research is
undertaken by the Department of the Interior in cooperation with
other public and private groups.
Construction of the St. Lawrence Seaway will go forward in the
fiscal year 1958. To meet increased construction costs and provide for
additional dredging work not originally contemplated, 35 million dol­
lars of additional borrowing authority is recommended for 1958 under
proposed legislation.
The Tennessee Valley Authority will continue construction in the
fiscal year 1958 of the Wilson Lock started in 1957. Work on 7
steam-electric generating units at present plants was started in the
fiscal years 1956 and 1957 with proceeds from the sale of power, as
approved by the last Congress, and will be continued in 1958. Based
on the best information now available, it appears that additional
generating capacity will be needed to meet TVA power requirements
by the end of the calendar year 1960. Legislation is recommended to
authorize the TVA, subject to regular budgetary review, to finance
new generating facilities by the sale of revenue bonds. After the
Congress has acted upon this legislative proposal, the power require­
ments of the TVA will be reexamined. Pending this re-examination,
an authorization of 30 million dollars for construction of a new unit of
about 180,000 kilowatts at an existing steam plant is included in the
budget under proposed revenue-bond legislation to meet power needs
of the area.
Forest, fish and wildlife, and recreational resources.— This budget
provides funds to increase soil-conservation work on the lands in the
national forests, in the public domain under the Bureau of Land
Management, in the national parks and wildlife refuges, and on Indian
lands held in trust by the Government. The budget also provides
for forestry research and reforestation, for leasing of mineral and
grazing lands, and for necessary construction of schools for Indians.
Consistent with the needs for expanded timber sales, provision is
made for access roads.
Provision is made for carrying forward the 10-year development and
improvement program of the National Park Service. This program is
designed to provide the necessary facilities and personnel to accom­
modate an estimated 80 million visitors to the national parks in 1966.

National forests also offer recreational opportunities for many mil­
lions of our citizens. The 1958 budget provides for an enlarged pro­
gram to develop and improve campgrounds, picnic areas, and sanitation
and other facilities to accommodate the recreational users of these
forests.
A reorganization of the Federal programs for fish and wildlife
resources has been effected in accordance with legislation enacted by
the last Congress. To assist commercial fisheries in improving their
competitive position, expenditures for fishery research will be in­
creased in the fiscal years 1957 and 1958. It is estimated that loans
of 12 million dollars over the 2-year period will be made from the
newly established fisheries loan fund, and a program of vocational
education grants for training fishery technicians will be inaugurated
in 1958.
Our sport fishery and wildlife resources make a substantial contri­
bution to meeting the recreational needs of our citizens. A study is
underway to determine future needs for fish and wildlife programs.
Mineral resources.— The Secretary of the Interior is developing a
minerals program to meet the long-range needs of the Nation, now
that the defense minerals programs are nearing completion. In the
meantime, a program authorized in the past session of the Congress
will provide 91 million dollars of assistance to segments of the mining
industry in adjusting from defense needs to normal market conditions.
The Geological Survey and the Bureau of Mines will also continue

m 56




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

their activities in support of exploration for new deposits, development
of improved mining techniques, and effective utilization of mineral
resources.
LABOR AND WELFARE

The objective of the Government’s labor and welfare programs is to
further the well-being of the people by increasing individual oppor­
tunity, fostering self-reliance, and providing safeguards against
economic hazards. These programs aid education and science, im­
prove health, facilitate employment and increase labor productivity,
while aiding the aged, disabled, and dependent to enjoy life free from
want for its necessities.
Budget expenditures in the fiscal year 1958 for labor and welfare
programs are estimated at 3.5 billion dollars. In addition, estimated
benefit payments of more than 10 billion dollars will be paid by the
Federal social insurance and retirement trust funds.
Primary reliance has been placed upon the States and local com­
munities to organize and operate labor and welfare services, while the
Federal Government has furnished financial and technical support.
Four-fifths of the 3.5 billion dollars of estimated budget expenditures
for labor and welfare services in 1958 is for grants-in-aid to State and
local governments.
As science lengthens the span of life and the average age of the
population increases, the problems of older people— there are now
15 million past the age of 65— assume increasing significance. The

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

Federal G overnm ent's participation in activities that benefit older
citizens is extensive. Paym ents fo r old-age and railroad retirem ent
benefits (paid from trust funds and n ot included in budget expendi­
tures), and veterans’ pensions and public assistance grants for the
aged are estim ated to total m ore than 8 billion dollars in 1958. In
a ddition, other special activities in health research, em ploym ent
assistance, housing, and veterans’ services benefit our aged citizens.
L ast M a rch a Federal C ouncil on A ging was established to coord i­
nate Federal activities, to im prove w orking relationships with the
States in this field, and to devise better means for m eeting the needs
o f the aged. In this com ing year the Federal G overnm ent will p ro­
vid e leadership in a cooperative effort with business, private organiza­
tions, and State and local governm ents to enlarge the em ploym ent
opportunities w hich m an y o f our older citizens need and want. T h e
D epartm en t o f L a b or will continue its program to rem ove barriers to
em ploym en t o f older workers, and State em ploym ent security agencies
will give increased attention to em ploym ent opportunities for such
workers. This budget also provides greater emphasis on health
services to older persons.
T h e President’s C ouncil on Y o u th Fitness, o f which the V ice Presi­
dent is chairman, was established in July to prom ote and coordinate
the num erous Federal activities in the field o f physical and general
y ou th fitness and to w ork w ith State, local, and private groups in this
field.
Promotion oj education.— Since the W h ite H ouse Conference on
E ducation was held a year ago, the States and com m unities have m ade
greater efforts to overcom e their educational problem s. Sixty-nine
thousand classroom s, 10 percent m ore than last year, are expected
to be built in the school year 1956-57. T h e num ber o f teachers and
their average salaries have also been increasing. D espite these gains,
grow ing enrollments are straining the financial capacities o f school
districts in m an y areas o f the cou n try. T o d a y , 31.5 m illion children
crow d the public schools b eyon d their norm al ca p acity and enroll­
m ents are increasing b y well over 1 m illion per year.

Legislation is recommended to complete in 4 years the general school
construction assistance program which was proposed as a 5-year
program last year. This budget includes new obligational authority
of 451 million dollars for the first year under this proposed legislation.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

Last April the President’s Committee on Education Beyond the
High School was appointed to consider problems created by the
record enrollments in colleges and universities. The budget antici­
pates a supplemental appropriation for the fiscal year 1957 to finance
the State and regional conferences which the Committee plans to hold
before it prepares its final report. It also provides in 1958 for assist­
ance under proposed new legislation to encourage States to undertake
specific planning action to meet their needs in higher education.
E xpenditures for other activities o f the Office o f E du cation are
prim arily to carry ou t the 2-year extension o f assistance to areas
where school enrollm ents are seriously affected b y Federal activities
and to provide for educational research and for grants for vocation al
education.
T h e b u d get recom m endations for the D epartm en t o f the Interior
include funds for the education o f Indian children and for a recently
enacted program for vocation al education o f adult Indians.
Labor and manpower.— T h e b ud get provides grants to the States
for the adm inistrative costs o f providin g em ploym ent service and
unem ploym ent com pensation, and for the em ploym ent security w ork
o f the D epartm en t of L abor. T h e recom m ended grants include
funds for jo b placem ent o f older and handicapped workers. B etter
m ethods o f scheduling placem ent will continue to assure longer and
steadier w ork fo r dom estic m igrant farm workers. T h e b ud get for
other labor and m anpow er program s continues enforcem ent and p ro ­
m otion al w ork to insure greater com pliance with labor legislation,
and provides for enforcem ent o f labor standards in the use o f M exican
nationals w ho w ork on farms. Further im provem ents are recom ­
m ended in lab or statistics.

Rapid scientific and technological developments are creating new
industries which are faced with shortages of skilled workers and
technicians. The Department of Labor has recently undertaken
training programs in a broader range of occupations. Support is
provided for these programs in 1958 through the newly reorganized
Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training.
In addition to the new legislation to im prove the G overn m en t’s
labor program s which was recom m ended earlier in the budget m es­
sage, legislation is also recom m ended to (1) increase, as part o f the
proposed area redevelopm ent program , assistance in labor services to
local areas where there has been persistent and chronic u n em ploy­
m ent and (2) provide insurance benefits to workers in the D istrict o f
C olu m bia w ho are tem porarily disabled because o f nonoccupation al

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

Promotion o j 'public health.— E xpenditures fo r p rom otion o f health
during the fiscal year 1958 are estim ated to be 607 m illion dollars, 106
m illion dollars m ore than in the current year.
T h e bu d get recom m endations fo r the N ational Institutes o f H ealth
fo r the fiscal year 1958 provide fo r m ore research, while keeping in
proper balance support o f individual projects, training o f additional
technicians, and new laboratories and other facilities. Th is balance
is necessary to safeguard the quality o f research because o f the high
utilization o f the present technical resources. A n increase o f 38
m illion dollars in expenditures is estim ated, prim arily fo r the new
grants to assist in the construction o f m edical research facilities and to
p rovid e the non-F ederal institutions receiving grants w ith m ore
equitable paym ents fo r the indirect costs o f these program s.
Expenditures fo r Federal aid to hospital construction are estim ated
at 100 m illion dollars in the fiscal year 1958. T h e increase o f 17
m illion dollars over the 1957 estim ate includes the provision o f nursing
hom es, rehabilitation facilities, and chronic disease hospitals w h ich are
especially im portan t to older people and to others suffering from
long-term illness or disability. T h e budget also includes 62 m illion
dollars in 1958 for the recently started program for grants to co m ­
m unities to stim ulate construction o f waste treatm ent facilities where
Federal aid is appropriate.
T o m eet other health needs, this bu d get includes increased ex­
penditures for com m u n ity health services to the aged and those w ith
chron ic diseases, for research in com batin g air and water pollu tion ,
for accident prevention, and for health services to children and
Indians. Grants fo r poliom yelitis vaccin e will n o longer b e needed.
E n forcem en t o f the fo o d and drug laws will be strengthened.
T o help m eet the critical need fo r m ore m edical research scientists
and oth er health personnel, the recently enacted legislation fo r c o n ­
struction grants fo r m edical and dental research facilities should be
am ended to include teaching facilities. N ew obligational authority
o f 15 m illion dollars is recom m ended for this purpose. First-year
expenditures are estim ated at 3 m illion dollars.
National Science Foundation .— A n increase o f 25 m illion dollars in
the appropriations for the regular program o f the N ation al Science
F oun dation is recom m ended for the fiscal year 1958. This will enable
the F ou ndation to deal m ore effectively with tw o problem s o f national
im portance in the field o f science. First, on ly a very small p roportion
o f the billions o f private and public funds d evoted to research and
developm en t is fo r the basic research on w hich progress in the
applied scientific fields o f health, industrial techn ology, and w eapons
developm en t depends. T h e Foun dation will increase its grants for
basic research p rojects and for special research facilities. Second,




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

to help overcome the acute shortage of skilled scientists and engineers,
the Foundation will make a major effort to improve training in
science, particularly by increasing the number of qualified teachers,
by interesting a larger number of able students to enter scientific
careers, and by granting fellowships to graduate and post-doctoral
students.
Although expenditures for the International Geophysical Year
program will decline, most of the actual scientific operations all over
the world will be carried out during the fiscal year 1958.
Other welfare services.— The appropriation for the school lunch pro­
gram, mainly for cash grants to the States, is recommended at 100
million dollars for 1958, the same as for 1957. The Federal Govern­
ment will also contribute to the school lunch program in 1958 by
(1) making donations of surplus agricultural commodities estimated
to have a value of approximately 130 million dollars, and (2) spending
70 million dollars through the Commodity Credit Corporation for the
school milk program.
For the past 3 years the Federal Government has increased its
financial aid and technical assistance to States and communities for
rehabilitating the disabled. The number of persons rehabilitated
each year has reached a record level. This budget reflects a further
expansion in this program.
Legislation is recommended to (1) authorize construction of sanita­
tion facilities for Indians, (2) transfer Freedmen’s Hospital to Howard
University, with provision for construction of a new teaching hospital,
(3) authorize special grants for training of teachers for mentally
retarded children, and (4) assist States in combating juvenile delin­
quency more effectively. The budget anticipates expenditures of
5 million dollars in the fiscal year 1958 for these new programs.
Provision is made in the budget to promote the principle of selfhelp and self-care through research into causes of dependency and
through training grants for welfare personnel as authorized by the
1956 social security amendments.
Public assistance.— The social security amendments enacted in 1956
raised Federal matching funds for State public assistance to people
whose needs are not met by social security insurance, and provided
new grants for medical care. Largely as a result of the 1956 amend­
ments, Federal grants for public assistance are estimated to increase
100 million dollars to a total of 1.7 billion dollars in the fiscal year
1958. Benefits will be paid by State agencies to an average of 5 mil­
lion persons in 1958, including 2.5 million on the old-age assistance
rolls which are declining as social insurance benefits cover more people.

m 61

m62




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

Social insurance and retirement trust funds.— Expenditures for social
insurance programs and for the payment of Federal civilian employees*
retirement benefits do not appear in the total of budget expenditures
because they are financed separately through trust funds. The total
disbursements from these funds for 1958 will exceed 10.5 billion dollars,
mainly for benefits under the various insurance programs. Reserves
for future payments, which are invested in Government bonds, will
increase to approximately 46 billion dollars at the end of the fiscal
year 1958.
Benefits will be paid in 1958 from the old-age, survivors, and dis­
ability insurance trust funds to some 9,100,000 retired persons,
380,000 disabled workers, and 1,800,000 mothers and children. These
numbers include women between the ages of 62 and 65 and disabled
workers between the ages of 50 and 65, who will receive benefits for the
first time under the social security amendments enacted in 1956.
Legislation is recommended to improve coordination between oldage insurance tax and income tax reporting procedures.
The Federal Government is responsible under law for payments
under the social security and railroad retirement funds for credits
toward benefits which are accorded for time spent in military service.
In the case of the railroad retirement account, the Comptroller Gen­
eral of the United States has informed the Congress that payments
already made to the fund by the Federal Government under existing
law exceed the estimated actual cost of future benefits for time spent
in military service prior to July 1948 by more than 300 million dollars.
In order to avoid further overpayments, it is recommended that legis­
lation be enacted to change the basis for appropriations so that the
Government henceforth will reimburse the fund for the actual cost of
military service benefits as they are paid.
With respect to the employer and employee contributions to the
railroad retirement system, provision should be made for adequate
long-term financing of the system on a self-supporting basis. The
congressional committees concerned reported they would take action,
and the need for a sounder financial basis was pointed out in the
statement issued last summer when new legislation raising benefits
was signed.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

VETERANS’ BENEFITS AND SERVICES

T h e N a tion ’s obligation to p rovide for the special needs o f war
veterans and their dependents is being m et b y a w ide range o f special
services and benefits, w hich accou n t for nearly one-fifth o f all b ud get
expenditures other than those for m ajor national security program s.
E xpenditures for veterans program s will continue to increase in the
fiscal year 1958, largely because o f the rising num ber o f veterans and

Veterans programs generally have served their purpose well. How­
ever, the problems which face veterans change as economic and social
conditions change and as the Government’s general health and eco­
nomic security programs expand in scope and adequacy.
A gainst this backgrou n d, executive review is being m ade o f agency

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

Readjustment benefits — T h e education and training program now

applies principally to veterans o f the K orean conflict. A verage enroll­
m en t o f this group is expected to reach a peak in the fiscal year 1957
and then drop abou t 4 percent to 569,000 in 1958. A s a result, expend­
itures are estim ated to drop b y 33 m illion dollars in 1958, even though
th ey include the cost o f education and training for som e 9,000
children under the W a r O rphans’ E ducational Assistance A c t which
was enacted in 1956. This latter cost is n o t a readjustm ent benefit
b u t is financed from the same appropriation.
T h e Veterans A dm inistration is expected to guarantee hom e,
farm , and business loans to abou t 540,000 veterans o f W orld W ar I I
and the K orean conflict in the fiscal year 1958. B u dget expenditures
o f 61 m illion dollars are estim ated to result from veterans’ defaults
on guaranteed loans, b u t a large part o f these expenditures will be
offset b y recoveries from the sale o f properties which are deposited in
the Treasury as miscellaneous receipts.
M o s t W orld W ar I I veterans have had over 10 years to use their
loan guaranty benefits, w hich were intended to assist their adjustm ent
from m ilitary to civilian life. A s a group, th ey have successfully
reestablished them selves in civilian pursuits w ith the aid o f a wide
range o f readjustm ent benefits. N ew applications under the W orld
W ar I I loan program , w hich was extended b y the last Congress to
perm it orderly term ination, should therefore end as n ow scheduled in
July 1958. L oan guaranty benefits for veterans o f the K orean
con flict will continue, under current legislation, until 1965, and
m ortgage insurance benefits remain available to all hom e buyers,
including veterans, through the Federal H ousing A dm inistration.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

As pointed out in the section on commerce and housing, the statutory
maximum interest rate on veterans guaranteed loans should be
increased to bring it more nearly into line with current market condi­
tions. Such action is essential to encourage provision of more adequate
mortgage funds from private sources for the veterans guaranty pro­
gram. That section also indicates there may be need to permit
liberalization of the terms of loans insured by the Federal Housing
Administration when the Veterans Administration programs for World
War II veterans expire.
Compensation and pensions.— Compensation benefits are paid for
disabilities or deaths resulting from service; pensions are for needs not
connected with service. Compensation rolls, which have been in­
creasing since World War II, are expected to stabilize in 1958, with
payments of 1.9 billion dollars to 2.1 million veterans and to 395,000
families of deceased veterans. Total compensation payments are
expected to start declining slowly within a few years, as World War I
and World War II veterans and dependents leave the rolls more
rapidly than veterans of more recent service and their dependents
become eligible.
The budget provides for pension payments in the fiscal year 1958
of over 1 billion dollars to an estimated 762,000 veterans and 488,000
families of veterans. Because many of the non-service-connected
ailments accepted as establishing eligibility for pensions are normally
associated with advancing age, the pension rolls will continue to grow
until near the end of this century as veterans grow older and as more
survivors become eligible.
Medical care and hospital construction.— Although the number of
veterans receiving hospital and medical services will be about the
same as in the fiscal year 1957, expenditures for hospital and medical
care are expected to increase in 1958, primarily because they will
include the allocable share of the Government payment to the civil
service retirement fund. The budget provides for the operation of
122,500 beds in Veterans Administration hospitals. Expenditures for
outpatient dental care are expected to decline in 1958.
Enactment of 54 million dollars of new authority to incur obligations
is recommended to cover the replacement of 2 general hospitals, the
preparation of plans for replacing a third, and the modernization of
other existing facilities.
Insurance and servicemen’s indemnities.— Issuance of new insurance
policies to ex-servicemen without disabilities and the award of indemni­
ties to survivors of deceased servicemen were terminated effective
January 1, 1957, by the Servicemen's and Veterans’ Survivor Benefits




M67

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

Act. This act provided substitute benefits in the form of new depend­
ency and indemnity compensation benefits and of coverage in the
old-age and survivors insurance system. Indemnity and insurance
payments, however, will continue to be made on existing cases and to
reimburse the veterans’ insurance funds for claims resulting from the
extra hazards of military service.
Trust funds.— The life insurance programs for veterans of the two
world wars are financed through trust funds, whose operations are
segregated from the regular budget transactions. About 5.2 million,
or one-fourth, of the eligible veterans have retained insurance policies.
Because issuance of new policies under these funds was ended in 1951,
the insurance in force will continue to decline.
In the fiscal year 1957, dividend rates have been increased by
approximately 12 percent, and about one-half of the total premium
collections during the year will be returned to policyholders. These
generous dividends have been made possible largely by the favorable
mortality experience of insured veterans. The increased dividend
payments will reduce the rate at which reserves are accumulated, but
will not impair the soundness of the funds.

T h e public d ebt was reduced in the fiscal year 1956 and further
m odest reductions are planned for 1957 and 1958. B y repayin g
debt, the Federal G overnm ent is enlarging the supply o f funds avail­
able for private financing o f other activities. H ow ever, the h ea v y
dem and for private capital funds and for State and local gov ern ­
m ent financing w hich accom panies the present record p rosperity has
increased the interest rates which the Treasury has to p a y on securi­
ties issued to refinance the large volum e o f obligations m aturing each
year. A s a result, the average rate the Treasury pays on the o u t­
standing interest-bearing public debt has risen in the past 12 m onths
from 2.49 percent to 2.67 percent.
Substantial reductions in interest rates cannot be expected until
there is a better balance between the present pressure o f h eavy credit
dem ands and the su pp ly o f savings.
GENERAL GOVERNMENT

A b o u t 2 percent o f budget expenditures will be required for general
governm ent, m ainly for law enforcem ent and for central m anagem ent
costs w hich under present accounting practices are n ot allocated to
other m ajor G overnm ent functions. T h e estim ated expenditures o f
1.5 billion dollars for this category in 1958 are 419 m illion dollars
below 1957 expenditures because o f a reallocation o f costs. Starting
in 1958, each G overnm ent program will bear its share o f the G overn ­
m en t’s paym ent to the civil service retirem ent fund, and individual
appropriations throughout this budget include am ounts for this pur­
pose. T h e paym ent was previously m ade from a single appropriation
to the C ivil Service Com m ission.
T h e C om m ission on Intergovernm ental R elations recom m ended, as
a m atter o f equity, that the Federal G overnm ent m ake paym ents in
lieu o f taxes to local governm ents in those areas where recent Federal
acquisition o f industrial and com m ercial type properties has created
undue fiscal difficulties. Legislation containing this principle was
introd uced in the last session o f the Congress and is again recom ­
m ended.

to increase efficiency of G overnm ent services and to better the working
conditions o f Federal em ployees, additional im provem ents o f G overn­

air conditioning o f buildings in areas where temperature and hum idity
interfere unduly with efficient operations. Because of continuing
deterioration in m any G overnm ent buildings in recent years, m ore
renovation and repairs have also becom e necessary. A dditional space
will be needed to a void overcrow ding in certain agencies.
Central personnel management and employment costs.— T h e Civil

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

em ployees. T ota l agency paym ents are estim ated at 566 million
dollars in 1958. A dditional expenditures o f 2 million dollars will be
m ade b y the C ivil Service Com m ission for paym ents to annuitants
under special statutes.
T h e D epartm en t o f L a bor will transfer m ore o f the processing o f
accident com pensation claims for Federal em ployees to regional offices
in 1958 in order to bring adm inistration closer to em ployees and to
speed up paym ent. Legislation should be enacted to p rovid e for each
em p loyin g agency to bear its share o f the cost o f these benefits and to
encourage still further precautionary safety measures b y the agencies.
Substantial increases in benefits for civilian em ployees o f the G o v ­
ernm ent have been adopted in the last tw o Congresses, and the costs
are generally reflected in budget requests for the em ploying agencies.
One of these new benefits, unem ploym ent com pensation for separated
civilian em ployees, is financed b y an appropriation to the D ep artm en t
o f L abor. A n increase is recom m ended in this appropriation in 1958
to p rovid e the am ount estim ated to be needed because o f higher
average benefit rates, w hich are based on State statutes.
Legislation is recom m ended to establish a system o f volu n tary
health and m edical insurance for civilian em ployees and their depen d­
ents. Legislation is also recom m ended to authorize the training o f
G overn m en t em ployees outside as well as within the em ployin g agency.

District of Columbia and territories and possessions.— A ppropriation s
are recom m ended for the full am ount o f the increased Federal p aym ent
to the D istrict o f C olum bia authorized b y the last session o f the
Congress. Federal expenditures for the D istrict are estim ated to
rise to 43 m illion dollars in the fiscal year 1958, including 17 m illion
dollars in loans for construction o f public works under the long-term
program authorized in 1954.
Legislation will be proposed again to carry out the treaty and
agreem ent m ade in 1955 with the R epu blic o f Panam a. T h e Canal
Z one G overnm ent will replace schools and other facilities transferred
to the R epu b lic under the treaty, and the Panam a Canal C om p an y
will replace em ployee quarters and other facilities in the Canal Zone.
Claims and relief acts.— Paym ents for m iscellaneous claim s and
relief acts are estim ated at 9 m illion dollars in the fiscal year 1958,
com pared to 60 m illion dollars in 1957 and 230 m illion dollars in
1956. M ost o f the decrease in this item results from legislation
enacted last year, under which each agency n ow pays bills presented
after the appropriation involved has lapsed. Such bills were previously
p aid out of a single Treasury D epartm ent account.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

CONCLUSION

This concludes the analysis o f the 1958 budget. T h e budget d o cu ­
m ent itself contains a great deal of additional budgetary inform ation.
In part I of the budget docum ent there are seven tables presenting
sum m ary data on budget receipts, expenditures, public debt, new
obligational authority, and balances. D etailed inform ation, esti­
mates, and schedules for each agency and each appropriation, including
statem ents of program and perform ance, appear in part II. Part I I I
o f the budget docum ent contains b oth sum m ary tables and detailed
appropriation and agency inform ation for trust funds. Part IV
consists of 12 “ special analyses” which present additional details,
classifications, and historical data.

Debt and investment transactions.— R eceipts never in­
clude m on ey obtained from borrow ing. Similarly, retire­
m en t o f d ebt is always excluded from bu d get expenditure
figures. T h e purchase o f U nited States G overnm ent
securities, and redem ptions or sales thereof, are also
excluded from the expenditure and receipt figures.
Eliminations from both receipts and expenditures.— C er­
tain paym ents from one fund to another are eliminated
from budget receipts and expenditures. This is done to
a void inflating b oth sides o f the budget. Paym ents to
the general fund of earnings and dividends on capital o f
rev olv in g funds, and the return o f such capital to the
general fund are the item s so excluded.

or other authorization available for the purpose. T here­
fore, authorizations are enacted to cover obligations
expected to be incurred within the fiscal year rather than
to cov er on ly the expenditures which are expected to be
m ade during that year in paym ent o f obligations.

Distinction between permanent and current authoriza­
tions.— T a b les 3 and 5 distinguish permanent authoriza­
tions and current authorizations. The perm anent items
are those under which additional sums becom e available
from tim e to time under action p reviously taken b y the
C ongress; no further action is required each year. M o st
perm anent authorizations are in force until repealed; a
few are in effect for on ly a few years as specified in the
law. The current authorizations are those enacted b y
Congress in or im m ediately preceding each fiscal year.
Balances.— M a n y budget authorizations are available
for obligation for only 1 year, b u t some are available fo r
longer periods of time. H ow ever, balances rem ain avail­
able indefinitely to p ay obligations law fully incurred
within the original period of availability of the appropria­
tion. In the case of salaries and wages, travel, and like
items, the lag between obligations and expenditures is
usually no m ore than a few weeks or a few m onths. In
the case of construction, m ajor procurem ent, certain
research contracts and similar items, the lag between
obligations and expenditures m a y be as m uch as 1 or 2
years, and som etim es is even longer. F or some revolving
funds and certain other purposes, Congress has granted
obligational authority well in advance of specific require­
ments, as a means of providin g for contingencies which
m a y arise. A s a result of the foregoing factors, substan­
tial balances of budget authorizations are carried forw ard
from one year to the next. Such balances are n ot in the
form o f cash, b u t are bookkeeping authority for the in­
curring of obligations or the m aking of expenditures, for
w hich cash m ust be provided through channels of financial
m anagem ent at the time the expenditures occur.
Relating expenditures to authorizations.— T ables 3 and 6
sum m arize the relationship betw een budget authoriza­
tions and bu d get expenditures. Because old and new
authorizations are b y law com m ingled in som e o f the
accounts, no a ttem pt is m ade in the sum m ary figures to
separate actual spending in 1956 betw een the use o f new
authorizations and the use of balances. H ow ever, the




budget presents such a breakdow n on an estim ated basis
for 1957 and 1958. In the case o f revolvin g and m anage­
m ent funds, it assumes that the p ortion o f their expendi­
tures chargeable to budget authorizations is equal to the
portion o f the authorizations credited to the revolvin g
fund during the year. T h e rem ainder o f the revolvin g and
m anagem ent fund expenditures (or negative expenditures)
are here classified as being charges or credits to balances
o f such funds.

NEW

O B L IG A T IO N A L

A U T H O R IT Y

Appropriations are authorizations to m ake expenditures
from the general fund o f the Treasury or from the various
special funds. In some cases the authority to incur ob li­
gations has previously been granted in the form o f con ­
tract authorizations; in such cases, the appropriation to
perm it the paym ent o f such obligations is said to be to
liquidate contract authorizations. In all other cases app ro­
priations confer authority both to incur new obligations
and to p a y for them.
Contract authorizations are authorizations to incur ob li­
gations prior to the enactm ent o f an appropriation. A
contract authorization does not in itself perm it the spend­
ing o f m on ey; hence it m ust be follow ed b y an a pp ro­
priation to perm it paym ent o f the contracts and other
obligations thus incurred.
Authorizations to expend from debt receipts are authori­
zations to make expenditures from borrow ed m oney.
Such authorizations m ay take these form s: (a) A uth oriza­
tions for the Treasury to m ake public debt receipts avail­
able to a given agency or enterprise, often in exchange for
notes o f the enterprise; (b) authorizations for a G overn m ent-ow ned corporation to borrow directly from the p u b ­
lic; and (c) cancellation o f notes w hich have been issued
b y a G overnm ent enterprise and are held b y the Treasury,
where the cancellation has the effect o f perm itting further
expenditures to be m ade (through restoring previou sly
used authority to borrow from the Treasury).
Reappropriations and reauthorizations are actions to
continue available part or all o f the unused balances o f
prior appropriations or authorizations w hich w ould oth er­
wise expire. W hen the authorizations thus continued had
been previously granted for current operations o f the
year, the continuation o f their availability into a new
year constitutes new obligational authority.
Total new obligational authority shown in table 3 is the
sum o f the various types of authorizations nam ed above,
less the portion of appropriations w hich is for liquidation
of prior con tract authorizations. This total represents the
new authority becom in g available in any given year for
the purposes of m aking com m itm ents.

section. Such estimates include, in addition to the
various supplemental estim ates w hich are identified in
part II, an allowance for item s which cannot be foreseen
now b u t which will be transm itted later when definite

for enactm ent b y Congress on each item of authorization.
Included herein is also m aterial on funds o f the m unicipal

trust funds which require congressional action. T h e con ­

BALANCES

A t the beginning o f each chapter a table in large type
summarizes budget authorizations available, and a second
table summarizes expenditures and other dispositions of
the am ounts available. B o th tables segregate the items
proposed for form al transmission to Congress later as sup­
plem ental estimates from those items already enacted or
form ally recom m ended in this docum ent.
Summary oj budget authorizations available.— This sum­
m ary indicates the totals o f each type o f new obligational
authority for the year, the totals o f the various types of
balances brough t forw ard into the year, and any inter­
chapter transfers or net upw ard adjustm ents o f budget
authorizations. T h e various types of authorizations are
explained in the introduction to part I (pp. a 2 and a 3 ) .
Summary oj expenditures and balances.— This sum m ary
indicates the total expenditures for the chapter, the p or­
tion o f the unspent available am ounts w hich ceases to be
available during or at the close of the year, and the
balances carried forw ard in to the next year.
F or the years 1957 and 1958, there are estim ated the
portion o f the expenditures w hich will com e ou t o f appro­
priations or other authorizations granted b y Congress for
that year, and the p ortion w hich will com e from perm a­
nent authorizations and from balances o f prior authoriza­
tions brou gh t into the year. A dditional entries are used
where required for expenditures which will com e from
appropriations m ade to liquidate prior con tract authoriza­
tions, and for expenditures from balances and receipts o f
revolvin g and m anagem ent funds. Because old and new
authorizations are com m ingled in some accounts, no at­
tem pt is m ade in the sum m ary figures to separate actual
spending in 1956 between old and new authorizations.
In preparing the estimates for 1957 and 1958, it is
generally assumed that prior year balances available in
com m ingled accounts will be obligated before the new
authorizations are obligated, and that expenditures will
reflect the liquidation o f those obligations on the basis o f
previous experience. W here the obligation and expendi­
ture are simultaneous, the first-in, first-out m ethod is
used to assign expenditures betw een old and new authori­
zations. In the case o f revolvin g funds where budgetary
authorizations are com m ingled w ith receipts, it is assumed
that authorizations are expended in an am ount equal to
the sums placed in the revolvin g fund during the year, and
that the rem aining expenditures or net collections are a
charge or credit to balances o f the fund.
Summaries oj balances.— A t the b o tto m o f the foregoing
summaries, there is given (a) a further analysis o f the
authorization balances wT
hich are carried forw ard each
year, indicating the respective am ounts w hich are obli­
gated and u nobligated; and ( b) a further analysis o f the
amounts written off or otherw ise ceasing to be available
each year, indicating the m anner o f writeoff.

A sum m ary listing o f the organization units in each
chapter shows the new obligational authority and expendi­
tures for each. T h e detailed listing w hich follow s is
divided in several sections: Current authorizations (other
than those for revolvin g and m anagem ent fu n d s), perm a­
nent authorizations, revolvin g and m anagem ent funds,
and supplem ental item s proposed for later transmission.
T y pes o f authorizations other than appropriations are
set forth under the applicable appropriation titles, identi­
fied b y separate stub entries. Functional cod e num bers
appear in a separate colum n, indicating the category in
the functional tables (special analyses C and L o f part
IV ) where each item has been included.
T w o deductions appear at the end o f the table. One
deduction, in the authorization colum n, covers the app ro­
priations w hich are to liquidate con tract authorizations
and hence to be excluded in arriving at new obligational
authority. T h e other deduction, in the expenditure
colum n, is for receipts o f p u blic enterprise funds, to be
subtracted in arriving at net budget expenditures.
A separate double-page table is used for revolvin g and
m anagem ent funds. A ppropriation s and other budgetary
authorizations to use general fund m on ey for revolvin g
funds are shown in this section. I t also shows the total
am ounts provided b y operations, the total am ounts
applied to operations, and the net expenditures (which is
the difference betw een the tw o other figures).

another for construction, for m a jor procurem ent, for serv­

b y m utual agreem ent are to be so handled, the am ount so
allocated is accou n ted for separately b y the receiving
agency. T h e use o f the m on ey is shown in a section of
the b udget under the parent a ccou n t, rather than in the
p ortion o f the bu d get for the receiving agency.
M o s t other paym ents betw een agencies are accou n ted
for in consolidated w orking funds or as reim bursem ents
to appropriations. E ach such p aym ent is included in an
appropriate o b je ct class o f the parent a ccou n t and the
use o f such advances and reim bursem ents is regularly
shown in a separate schedule o f the receiving agency.
Such schedules o f advances and reim bursem ents are b u d g­

agency paym ents are significant in determ ining the a pp ro­
priation needs o f the receiving agen cy, the reim bursem ents
are shown in the appropriation schedule o f the receiving
agency instead o f in separate schedules.

PROGRAM AND PERFORM A NCE

Mexican agricultural labor is imported for use in areas
having a shortage of domestic agricultural workers. Au­
thorization for this program was extended to June 30,
1959. by the act of August 9, 1955 (69 Stat. 615).

NARRATIVE STATEMENTS
The w planned and services proposed to be
ork
carried out are described briefly under each
appropriation or fund. Where practicable the
narrative statem
ents indicate the expected accom­
plishm in relation to the financial estim
ent
ates and
give som m
e easures of program and perform
ance.
In the case of perm
anent appropriations, the nar­
rative statem
ents also explain the source of the
m
oney and the statutory basis for the appropriation.

Balance w
hich expired for obligation purposes
at the end of the year, and w
hich is no longer avail­
able for expenditure.
— Headings in the narrative statem
ents usually
agree w the schedules of obligations by activities.
ith

2. Supplying Mexican labor requirem ents^^W orkers are
recruited in Mexico and transported to centers in the
United States where employers contract for their use. In
1956, 428,416 workers were contracted, and an estimated
480,000 will be contracted in 1957 and 490,000 in 1958.
To increase the number of workers in 1957, a supple­
mental appropriation will be proposed. Direct costs such
as transportation, subsistence, medical examinations, etc.,
are charged to the revolving fund. The overall cost,
including revolving fund expenses, for supplying a Mexican
agricultural worker averaged $11.16 in 1956 and is esti­
mated to be $11.73 in 1957 due to a general increase in
costs of transportation, subsistence, and rents.
3. Determining compliance with contract provisions .—
Complaints of contract violations are investigated, and
housing and other facilities required by the contract are
inspected: Inspections will be increased and enforce­
ment strengthened in 1958.

PROGRAM AND PERFORMANCE

LIBRARY OF CONGRESS
The Library of Congress, established in 1800, is not
only the library of the Congress itself, but is also the
principal general library of the Government of the United
States. Its collections are comprehensive and varied, and
include outstanding collections of books, periodicals,
newspapers, documents of the national governments of
the world, literature in the oriental languages, etc., and
manuscripts, maps, music, motion picture films, sound
recordings, prints, and photographs. In addition to
maintenance of the collections and the rendering of general
and basic services connected therewith, certain specialized
functions are performed: the Legislative Reference Serv­
ice, registration of copyrights, catalog card distribution,
and the service of books in raised characters and talking
books to the blind. In terms of these broad fields of
activity comparative obligations (including only those
chargeable to annual appropriations) for 1956 and esti­
mated for 1957 and 1958 are:

The Library’s first obligation is to the Congress; the

second, to other agencies of the Government; and the
third, to other libraries, scholars, investigators, and the
general public.
In addition to funds appropriated annually by Congress,
there are also available a number of gift and trust funds,
and working funds.
Estimates for the physical equipment, maintenance and
operation of the Library buildings are carried under the
request of the Architect of the Capitol.




Personal services and incidental expenses required for
the basic operations of the Library are financed from this
appropriation.
1.
Acquisition of library materials.— The development
of the Library’s collections is planned; materials are
procured by purchase, gift, exchange, copyright deposit,
transfer and official deposit; and materials are selected for
addition to the permanent collections. The objectives
for 1958 are institution of procedures for speedier acquisi­
tion of selected important foreign publications, and
improvement in exchange relations with institutions in the
more important areas of the world. The collections
totaled 35,311,657 items as of June 30, 1956, and consisted
of 10,776,013 books and pamphlets; 15,107,865 manuscript
pieces, and 9,447,779 maps, pieces of music, reels of micro­
film, photographs, and other miscellaneous items. Of the
items received, about \){ million are added to the perma­
nent collections annually. Those received from various
sources in 1956 and estimated for 1957 and 1958 are as
follows:

Organization of the collections.-—Library materials are
cataloged, classified, marked, and arranged; Library of
Congress catalogs and the main National Union Catalog
(card catalog) are maintained; special collections are or­
ganized for use; and binding operations are controlled.
The objectives for this activity in 1958 are cataloging of
a larger number of the materials received during the year

In performing the functions authorized by the Legisla­
tive Reorganization Act of 1946, the Legislative Reference
Service prepares research reports, digests, etc., in answer
to inquiries from Members and committees of Congress.
1. Research and analysis.— The Legislative Reorganiza­
tion Act of 1946 lists 19 specific fields of congressional
concern in which top-level research is authorized. These
correspond in general to the spheres of committee activity.
The following 13 fields are now covered: International
trade, international affairs, taxation and fiscal policy,
American government and public administration, con­
servation, American public law, labor, engineering and
public works, agriculture, price economics, national
defense, social welfare, and transportation and communi­
cations. Available to the Members and committees are
also the preparation of charts, translations, reading lists,
information in report form or otherwise, and answers to
spot reference inquiries. In 1956, 59,425 congressional
inquiries were answered. Since 1950, the annual increase
in the number of inquiries has been between 4 and 10
percent. The total of inquiries for 1957 is estimated at
62,400; and for 1958, at 65,000.
2. Preparation o/ indexes and digests.— The Digest of
Public General Bills covered 7,094 bills and resolutions
during the Eighty-fourth Congress, second session. It is
expected that there will be as many bills to be covered
during the Eighty-fifth Congress, second session. The
preparation of analytical and name indexes to an increas­
ing number of committee hearings is to be continued.
3. Reference files, bibliographic and congressional reader
service.— Reference files, containing clippings, pamphlets,
and documents are maintained as the basis for reply to
the majority of inquiries; researchers are supplied with
bibliographic and reference tools; selective and compre­
hensive bibliographies are prepared for Members and
committees of Congress; and reader services are provided
by the congressional reading room. During 1956, 75,661
reference file items were processed, 13,149 bibliographic
entries prepared, 54,054 published items acquired and
processed, and 3,064 readers served. With the growth in
number and scope of inquiries, there has been a steady
increase which is expected to continue in 1957 and 1958.

The card division sells copies of the Library’s printed
catalog cards and publications. It maintains a stock of
over 140,000,000 catalog cards representing some 3,200,000
titles, and fills orders from approximately 9,000 regular
subscribers— mostly libraries— in the United States and
abroad. More than 90 percent of this appropriation is
recovered in the form of receipts from card and publica­
tion sales. Receipts of $1,280,172 were deposited in mis­
cellaneous receipts of the Treasury in 1956. The objec­
tives for 1958 are continued improvements and economies
in all operations, increasing the scope and utility of the
Library of Congress catalogs in book form, and the con­
tinued expansion of the National Union Catalog to include
1956 and later imprints held by other American libraries.

PROGRAM AND PERFORMANCE

This appropriation constitutes the only means of ac­
quiring regular domestic trade publications (except for
copyright deposits) and many foreign trade publications,
both current and noncurrent, from approximately 100
countries or areas. The publications acquired by pur­
chase constitute a most important part of the Library’s
acquisitions although they represent only a small portion
of the material received annually. The objectives for
1958 are the acquisition by air mail of selected important
foreign newspapers and periodicals in order to provide
faster service to Congress; the increase in acquisitions of
important materials from critical areas; the direct pur­
chase of selected current titles on microfilm as an economy
measure in lieu of binding; and the microfilming of de­
teriorating materials as a necessary preservative measure.

PROGRAM AND PERFORMANCE

o b l ig a t io n s

The division for the blind is responsible for administer­
ing a national program to provide reading materia] for
the blind of the United States, Territories, and insular
possessions. In discharge of this responsibility it has
two closely related operations.
First: It provides books in embossed characters, and
Talking Books with their associated reproducers. The
books are distributed through 28 regional libraries which
assume responsibility for their custody and circulation.
The reproducers are distributed through 55 State agencies.
Second: The division maintains one of the 28 regional
libraries providing service to approximately 6,000 readers
in the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, North
Carolina, and South Carolina. In addition, this regional
library offers a national service of a unique collection of
*
Braille books not generally available in the other regional
libraries.
The objectives for 1958 are to increase the production
of sound reproduction records and maintain the level of
production of books in raised characters, Braille and
Moon type; to increase the manufacture of new Talking
Book machines and accomplish an effective restoration of
previous models in need of repair; to check on the quality
of Talking Book machines manufactured and repaired;
and to continue necessary research in sound reproduction
and the techniques of Braille printing.

2. Cataloging and reference services.— Catalogs of Talking
and Braille books are prepared and maintained. Supple­
ments to both catalogs will be prepared in each of the
years, 1957 and 1958. During the period 1946 to 1955 the
number of readers throughout the country requiring cata­
logs from which to select reading matter has grown from
30,088 to 55,152 and circulation from 801,797 units (vol­
umes or containers) to 1,395,413. During the period
1947-56, readers served by the Library of Congress
regional library for the blind, increased from 2,001 to 6,096,
and the number of volumes circulated, from 36,643 to
73,190; the number of readers and circulation are expected
to continue to increase in 1957 and 1958.

PROGRAM AND PERFORMANCE

Appropriation................................................

PROGRAM AND PERFORMANCE

The work programs of the Office of Superintendent of
Documents are of a service nature and there is no control
over the volume of work which the Superintendent of
Documents is required by law to perform.
1. Sales distribution.— Government publications are
purchased from the Public Printer to be placed on sale.
Acquisition costs are paid from sales receipts; hence no
appropriation is required for printing sales copies. By
provision of law, the sale price is set at the cost of manu­
facture plus 50 percent. At the end of each fiscal year,
excess receipts not required for purchasing additional
publications are turned in to the Treasury Department
as miscellaneous receipts. For the fiscal year 1956,
miscellaneous receipts returned to the Treasury were 1956
fiscal year earnings of $2,428,000, and $79,201 representing
prior year earnings. It is estimated that miscellaneous
receipts earned will be $2,500,000 for 1957 and $2,650,000
for 1958. The number of sales orders has been steadily
increasing and in the last 10 years the volume of orders
and the dollar value of publications sold has more than
^doubled. The current public interest in the Government’s
publishing program points to a continuing increase in the
volume of orders.
2. Distribution jor other agencies and Members oj
Congress.—The Superintendent of Documents maintains
mailing lists, including the list for the Congressional
Record, and performs mailing operations upon the request
of any Government agency without reimbursement.
Another service is the mailing of Farmers’ Bulletins, Soil
Surveys, and other publications which are allocated to
Members of Congress on a quota basis.
3. Depository library distribution.—One copy of every
Government publication, upon request, is supplied to
more than 570 libraries which are designated depositories
for Government publications.
4. Cataloging and indexing.-—-This activity covers the
preparation and distribution of catalogs and indexes of
all publications issued by the Federal Government, the
principal series being the Monthly Catalog of United
States Government Publications and the Numerical List
and Schedule of Volumes.
5. Relation oj costs to obligations.— The relationship is
derived from year-end balances of undelivered orders as
reflected in the following table:

PROGRAM AND PERFORMANCE

The Government Printing Office executes orders for
printing, binding, and blankbook work, placed by Congress
and the various departments and independent establish­
ments of the Federal Government, and furnishes on order,
blank paper, inks, and similar supplies. Operations are
subject to the authority of the Joint Committee on Print­
ing (44 U. S. C.).
A separate appropriation has been established for
authorized printing and binding for the Congress; for
printing, binding, and distribution of the Federal Register;
and printing and binding of Government publications
authorized by law to be distributed without charge to the
recipients (67 Stat. 330).
All work for Government agencies other than the above
is done on a reimbursable basis and financed through this
fund. Receipts from sales of publications by the Super­
intendent of Documents are deposited to the revolving
fund and cost of publications paid therefrom. All profits
accruing from these transactions are deposited in the
Treasury of the United States and credited to miscellane­
ous receipts (44 U. S. C. 63).
Total investment in the Government Printing Office is
estimated at $46.3 million at the end of 1958, including
$1.8 million in retained earnings.

PROGRAM AND PERFORMANCB

1. Policy coordination.— The National Security Council
advises the President regarding national security policies.
Also, the Central Intelligence Agency is under the direc­
tion of the Council. Members of the Council are the Presi­
dent, the Vice President, the Secretary of State, the Secre­
tary of Defense, the Director of the Office of Defense
Mobilization and, as directed by the President, other high
officials. Salaries and expenses to provide staff services
for the CounciPs policy coordination activities are financed
from this appropriation.
2. Operations coordination.—-The Operations Coordinat­
ing Board was established in 1953 to advise, when directed
by the President, with the responsible executive agencies
to assist in coordinating implementation of national
security policies approved by him on the CounciPs recom­
mendation. The Board is composed of the Under Secre­
tary of State, the Deputy Secretary of Defense, the
Director of Central Intelligence, the Director of the United

States Information Agency, one or more representatives
of the President and, as necessary, officials of other agen­
cies. The 1958 appropriation estimate contemplates that
the Board will be established within the structure of the
Council and therefore includes funds for salaries and ex­
penses to provide staff services for the Board’s operations
coordination activities. In prior years these costs have
been financed from funds appropriated to the Board’s
member agencies.

certain plants that are vital to the maintenance of that
base.
(c) Navy shipbuilding in the United States.■ -Because of
—
the special nature of ship construction, this part of the
program is accounted for separately from other military
end items.
(d) Direct procurement in the United States.— Other sup­
plies required by military forces, such as gasoline, jet fuel,
uniforms, and medicines, are forwarded by the United
States to a small number of countries unable to finance
these items.
2. Packing, handling, and transportation.— These costs
cover expenses in preparing materiel for shipment and
the shipping costs to recipient countries.
3. Training.—To assure effective use and maintenance
of the materiel, members of the forces of our allies have
completed over 100,000 military training courses paid for
by funds made available for the military assistance pro­
gram.
4. Mutual weapons development.—This program con­
tinues at the 1956-57 level the effort to accelerate the
research and development of advanced types of non­
nuclear weapons by our allies, and to combine United
States methodology with the production capability of our
allies toward improving and increasing the production of
military weapons.
5. Surplus agricultural commodities.—Through the sale
of these commodities under section 402 of the Mutual
Security Act, foreign currencies are generated and used
to modernize certain essential military forces.
6. Loans.—With greater emphasis now being placed on
reimbursable aid, loans for military materiel are expected
to increase in 1957. Repayments will be placed in mis­
cellaneous receipts of the Treasury.
7. Administration.— In addition to certain administra­
tive costs, this activity includes reimbursements to the
Department of State for administrative services rendered.

The major activities of the military assistance program
are (1) the provision of materiel required to maintain the
military forces of allied nations at various standards of
readiness; (2) the provision of advisory services and train­
ing for their military personnel in the utilization of such
materiel; (3) participation in the joint financing of certain
international military facilities and activities, especially in
the North Atlantic Treaty Organization area; and (4)
necessary operating and administrative expenses.
Thirty-eight foreign countries are receiving grant aid
8. Contributions to construction of jacilities in other coun­
under the military assistance program. The program is
supporting in varying degrees in these countries ground tries.—Construction of military and logistical facilities
forces equivalent to more than 200 divisions, naval under the jointly financed North Atlantic Treaty Organi­
strength of more than 2,000 vessels of all kinds, and air zation infrastructure program will continue. Other mili­
strength of approximately 300 air squadrons as well as tary construction will proceed in some other countries
related support units. Congress has appropriated to date unable to finance such construction alone.
9. Contributions to North Atlantic Treaty Organization
approximately $24 billion, as the United States contribu­
tion in this mutual effort in which each ally must play a military headquarters.—Our contribution to this jointly
financed headquarters in 1956 was less than that estimated
part commensurate with its capabilities.

1. Defense support.— These programs provide the sup­
plemental resources required in certain countries to carry
on a defense effort of the size regarded as essential to
mutual defense. The primary purpose of defense support
is usually the attainment of military and political objec­
tives rather than the economic benefits which may inci­
dentally accrue to the recipient nation. In some cases,
defense support contributes to this objective by generating
local currency for a country’s budget thereby making
possible higher defense expenditures than would otherwise
occur. In other cases, resources are provided to enlarge
productive facilities and public works closely related to
military requirements. Defense support also provides
resources for certain development projects and foreign
exchange needs essential for a minimum rate of economic
growth while vital military forces are being built and
maintained.

FUNDS APPROPRIATED TO THE PRESIDENT

(а) Europe.—The 1957 program consists largely of as­
sistance for Spain and Yugoslavia and technical exchange
programs with the countries of Western Europe.
(б) Near East and Africa.—Increased tensions in the
Near East, accompanied as they are with dangers of
Soviet domination of the area, make imperative the main­
tenance and continued strengthening of the defensive forces
in the area. In view of their strategic positions, Turkey,
Pakistan, and Iran will continue to require assistance to
maintain their military strength and to assist in their
economic growth.
(c) A large proportion of defense support for Asia
assists Korea, Vietnam, Taiwan, and other countries to
bear a military burden far beyond their own unaided
capabilities.
(id) Latin America.—The 1957 program continues assist­
ance to Bolivia and Guatemala, undertaken because of
critical economic crises. This assistance, previously classi­
fied as development assistance, was redefined by the
Congress as defense support.
2. Development assistance.—This assistance is supplied
to promote economic development and to create economic
and political stability in those friendly countries with
which we have no military assistance agreement. The
aid is furnished to countries whose economic and political
development is vital to United States policy interests.
The projects undertaken are those of mutual interest
which cannot adequately be financed by the country alone
with private or public funds. Development assistance is
often closely related to technical cooperation programs
in a country.
(a) Near East and Africa.—Although a considerable
increase in program requirements is anticipated in 1957
for the vital Near East area and the emerging continent of
Africa, present plans are most tentative. Unsettled con­
ditions currently prevent firm program planning for most
countries in the Near East.
(b) Asia.—Development assistance is provided to
several Asian countries. For example, the United States
will continue to help meet the foreign exchange needs of
India’s development plans.
3. Technical cooperation.—This program provides for
the interchange of knowledge, experience, techniques, and
skills with the people of the less-developed areas of the
world to help them carry out their economic development
and increase their standards of living. Teaching, train­
ing, and exchange of information are carried out in such
fields as industry, mining, agriculture, labor, education,
health, sanitation, public administration, transportation,
and community development. Supplies and equipment
are provided only to the extent necessary to support
effective teaching and demonstration. Aid is provided
bilaterally, in programs administered by the International
Cooperation Administration, and multilaterally, by con­
tribution to the technical assistance program of the
Organization of American States and the United Nations
expanded technical assistance program. The bilateral
programs are coordinated with the multilateral to achieve
balanced country and regional programs and prevent
duplication of effort.
4. Other programs.—Several miscellaneous mutual secur­
ity activities are authorized by the Mutual Security Act.
A special fund is provided to the President for contingent
mutual security purposes. Investment and reconstruc­
tion projects are provided for Berlin. Contributions for
refugee programs are made to the Intergovernmental
Committee for European Migration, the United Nations
Refugee Fund, and the United Nations Relief and Works
Agency. The escapee program provides care for certain




refugees from Iron Curtain countries. The United
Nations children’s fund is assisted. Ocean freight is paid
for supplies shipped abroad by nonprofit relief agencies.
Administrative expenses, including reimbursements to the
Department of State, for economic mutual security
programs and for the controlling of East-West trade in
strategic materials is covered. A new program providing
one-half the cost of atomic research reactors in various
countries has been initiated. A special program for
regional development projects in Asia will entail increased
obligations in 1957. The balance of present availability
will be obligated in 1958. Special emergency relief
programs are required from time to time.

PROGRAM AND PERFO RM AN CE

The purpose of this fund is to strengthen the ties which
unite us with other nations by demonstrating the cultural
interests, developments, and achievements of the people of
the United States, and the contributions being made by
the United States economic and social system toward a
peaceful and more fruitful life for its own people and other
people throughout the world.
The Director of the United States Information Agency
serves as coordinator of the following activities:
1. Artistic and athletic 'presentations.—The Department
of State administers this program which supports out­
standing American cultural attractions appearing abroad.
This support is necessary primarily because of high inter­
national transportation costs and itineraries to places
where commercial revenues are inadequate to cover oper­
ating expenses. Approved projects, with itineraries
reaching all areas of the world, numbered 30 for 1956,
and are estimated at 47 during 1957, and 59 during 1958.
2. Trade fairs and exhibitions.—The Department of
Commerce administers this program, which finances
United States exhibitions plus commercial and labor mis­
sions at important international trade fairs and similar
exhibitions. Authorizations for 1956 and 1957 provided
for United States participation in 19 and 24 trade fairs,
respectively. Funds requested in 1958 will provide for
33 participations (over a 16-month period).
3. Universal and International Exhibition of Brussels.—
The Department of State, through a United States Com­
missioner General, will use these funds to finance a
major United States exhibit and related activities in the
Universal and International Exhibition of Brussels, 1958.
This Exhibition will be the first major world's fair since
the New York World’s Fair of 1939-40, and will include
national exhibits from approximately 50 countries plus
a number of international organizations. It is estimated
that 35 million persons will visit the Exhibition.

Program and Performance

Title I of the Agricultural Trade Development and
Assistance Act of 1954 authorizes the sale of up to $3 billion
of surplus agricultural commodities to friendly nations for
their currencies, with reasonable precautions neither to
displace United States sales for dollars nor to disrupt world
commodity prices. The Commodity Credit Corporation
finances the costs. The foreign currencies generated by
these sales may be used (a) to help develop new markets
for United States agricultural commodities, (b) to purchase
strategic and critical materials, (c) to procure military
materiel and services for the common defense, (d) to pur­
chase goods and services for other friendly nations, (e) to
promote balanced economic development and trade
among nations, (J) to pay United States obligations
abroad, (g) to make loans to promote multilateral trade
and economic development abroad, (h) to finance inter­
national education exchange activities, (i) to translate and

Revolving Fund, Defense Production Act

Under section 304 (b) of the Defense Production Act
of 1950, designated agencies are authorized with Presi­
dential approval to incur obligations of $2.1 billion on a
probable ultimate net cost basis for the purpose of making
loans and procuring critical materials in furtherance of
the defense effort. The obligations are financed by bor­
rowings from the Treasury. The 1951 amendments to
the act permit commitments in excess of $2.1 billion so
long as estimated probable ultimate net cost and out­




standing working capital do not exceed this amount at
any one time. Programs undertaken must be certified
as essential to the national defense by the Office of Defense
Mobilization. As of June 30, 1956, that Office had au­
thorized programs having a gross value of $8,916 million
which required certification of borrowing authority to
cover working capital requirements and the estimated
net cost to the Government. Of the $8.9 billion, gross
transactions of $2.7 billion remained to be completed, and
$1.3 billion remained to be placed under contract.

Most of the currencies are used without charge to ap­
propriations; some are sold to appropriations, and the
proceeds of such sales go to the Commodity Credit Cor­
poration. A lump-sum appropriation is recommended to
reimburse the Commodity Credit Corporation for its
losses which are not made up through such sales.
As of November 30, 1956, sales agreements had been
signed with 30 countries calling for deposits of sales pro­
ceeds totaling $1,766 million. This represents the market
value of commodities in which the Commodity Credit
Corporation investment is approximately $2.6 billion.
Subsidiary schedules on currency uses are presented in the
chapters of the Departments of State, Defense, and Agri­
culture, the General Services Administration, the United

Defense Mobilization. Net loan certifications were
$238,871,000 on June 30, 1956, against which actual
borrowings from the Treasury amounted to $176,570,000.
Following the hurricane and flood disasters which oc­
curred in the late summer of 1955, the President, in Execu­
tive Order 10634, dated August 25, 1955, authorized the
use of the Defense Production Act lending authority to
aid in the reconstruction and replacement of facilities
required for national defense which were destroyed or
damaged in major disasters.
The only new loans authorized by the Treasury Depart­
ment under this authority in 1956 were for rehabilitation
of facilities damaged in major disasters. There were 8
loans amounting to $14,316,000 authorized; bank partic­
ipation in 5 of the authorizations totaled $1,407,426.
The Government’s share of the authorizations amounted
to $12,908,574 and of this $9,452,540 was on a deferred
basis.
On June 30, 1956, there were outstanding under this
authority 55 loans totaling $185,358,113. In addition,
there was $42,789,521 in undisbursed commitments, of
which $18,110,742 represented commitments to partici­
pate in loans made by banks wherein disbursement of
Treasury funds is deferred.
Loans and commitments outstanding are disposed of to
private financial institutions and investors whenever pos­
sible. The budgetary receipts of $111,214,390 antici­
pated for 1957 reflect the culmination of efforts to secure
private refinancing for 2 of the 3 loans which made up the
greatest part of the oustanding portfolio. The budgetary
receipts of $64,150,000 anticipated for 1958 reflect the
private refinancing of the third of these loans.
Export-import Bank of Washington.—-Pursuant to sec­
tion 311 of Executive Order 10480 of August 15, 1953,
which superseded Executive Order 10161, the Exportimport Bank, with funds provided under section 304 of
the Defense Production Act of 1950, as amended, is re­
sponsible for making and administering all loans under
section 302 of the act, upon receipt of certificates of essen­
tiality issued by the Director of the Office of Defense
Mobilization or the General Services Administrator,
where the expansion, development, or production so
financed is carried on in foreign countries.
No certificates were received and no new loans were
authorized by the bank during 1956. During the year
the bank continued to administer the six active credits
previously authorized under this authority.
Operating results and financial condition.—The operat­
ing loss for conducting the programs of all agencies during
1958 is currently estimated at $42.6 million as compared
with $19.7 million and $38.5 million in 1956 and 1957,
respectively. These losses primarily result from the re­
sale of high-cost material at market prices and from financ­
ing experimental research projects in such materials as
titanium, manganese, nickel, etc.
The deficit at the end of 1958 is estimated at $301 mil­
lion as compared with $219.9 million at the end of 1956.
Because of the large unexpended balance remaining in the
borrowing authority, it is not necessary to seek new au­
thorizations from the Congress to replace the deficit at
this time.




Inventories of minerals and metals (stated at cost) are
expected to increase from $567.3 million in 1956 to $709.2
million at the end of 1958. The inventories at the end
of 1958 represent the accumulation by the Government of
such materials as titanium. ($141 million), tungsten ($260
million), manganese ($77.3 million), chromite ($19.6 mil­
lion), mica ($18.2 million), and columbium ($48.6 mil­
lion). This material is held by the Government in this
account because it cannot be absorbed within existing
stockpile objectives and there is no current industrial
need for the material in the economy.
No new additional advances to contractors are ex­
pected to be made during 1957 or 1958. Repayments on
advances made to date will reduce the balance due from
contractors from $73.3 million in 1956 to $42.4 million in
1958. Repayments by borrowers on existing loans, or
the sale of existing loans by the Government to private
banks are expected to reduce the outstanding balance of
loans from $230.2 million at the end of 1956 to $73.4
million on June 30, 1958.
The investment in land and structures will increase to
approximately $143.7 million by 1958 from $111 million
in 1956, as a result of expenditures of about $8 million for
expansion of the Government-owned Nicaro nickel plant
in Cuba and net expenditures of nearly $25 million for
the machine tool program.
The net effect of operations during 1957 and 1958 will
result in increasing the interest bearing investment of the
Government in this program from $1,144 million at the
end of 1956 to $1,194 million on June 30, 1958.

FUNDS APPROPRIATED TO THE PRESIDENT
Discharge of Investment Guaranty Liabilities Fund, Mutual Security
Act

In order to encourage private American industrial
investment abroad, and to facilitate the distribution of
informational media, Public Law 665, approved August
26, 1954, as amended, authorizes guaranties against non­
commercial risks. These risks are (1) inconvertibility of
local currency receipts from an investment, (2) loss
of investment resulting from expropriation or confiscation,
and (3) loss by reason of war. The insurance, which
may have a maximum term of 20 years, is available for
United States investments in any country with which
the United States has agreed to institute the guaranty
program.
When payment is made pursuant to a guaranty, the
currency, property, or claim on account of which such
payment is made becomes the property of the United
States.
Although the Mutual Security Act of 1956 provided
for a split of the investment guaranty program into the
foreign investment guaranty fund and the informational
media guaranty fund, this separation has not as yet been
formally effected by the International Cooperation Admin­
istration and the United States Information Agency.
Accordingly, consolidated schedules are presented in this
budget.
Industrial guaranties.—As of November 30, 1956, a
total of $123,496,237 investment guaranties had been
issued since the inception of the program in 1948, of which
$95,836,597 were outstanding. Of this total amount
issued, $92,480,468 were against the risk of inconvertibility
and $31,015,769 were against the risk of loss by expropri­
ation. In 1956, the number of countries participating in
this program increased from 26 to 30; additional increases
are anticipated in 1957 and 1958.
The Mutual Security Act of 1956 increased the guaranty
issuing authority from $200 million to $500 million and
placed the program on a fractional reserve basis rather than
a full reserve basis.
The act also provided authority to issue guaranties
against loss by reason of war.
From the inception of the program until November 30,
1956, no disbursements had been made under any of these
investment guaranties and a total of $1,700,596 in fees
had been collected.
Informational media guaranties.—The informational
media guaranty program is authorized under section 1011
of the United States Information and Educational Ex­
change Act of 1948, as amended. The informational
media guaranty program makes it possible for American
exporters of books, periodicals, motion pictures, and other
informational media to sell their materials, through regu­
lar commercial channels, in foreign countries having a
shortage of United States dollar exchange. Under the
informational media guaranty program, foreign importers
make payment to American exporters in local currency,
following which exporters may exchange their local cur­
rency for United States dollars upon application to the
United States Information Agency, in accordance with the
terms of each exporter’s informational media guaranty
contract. As of November 30, 1956, a total of $43,250,512
informational media guaranties had been issued since the
inception of the program, of which $7,709,752 were
outstanding.

The Commission procures raw materials; manufactures
special nuclear materials and atomic weapons; develops
improved weapons; conducts research and development
aimed at generation of atomic power, including power
from controlled thermonuclear reactions, and protection
of health against possible hazards arising from atomic
energy operations; conducts investigations in the physical
and life sciences related to atomic energy; establishes and
enforces regulations for civilian uses of atomic energy;
promotes industrial participation in atomic energy de­
velopment for peaceful purposes; encourages scientific
and industrial progress through the dissemination of in­
formation under the terms of the Atomic Energy Act of
1954, as amended; and participates in programs of inter­
national cooperation in peaceful applications of atomic
energy.
The program is administered in the field through 10
major offices. Most of the Commission’s activities are
carried on in Government-owned facilities by industrial
concerns and educational institutions, operating under
contracts. Coordination with the armed services is
achieved through the Military Liaison Committee of the
Department of Defense.
Net program costs in 1958 are estimated at $2,164.2
million, or 24 percent greater than the estimated 1957
net costs of $1,745 million, and 56.4 percent greater than
actual net costs of $1,384.1 million for 1956. The upward
trend reflects mainly larger scale procurement of raw
materials and expanded production of nuclear weapons.
Other increases occur in the efforts to develop varied types

colleges, and universities; and dissemination of technical
information, including participation in international
conferences on nuclear science and technology.
Four schools will be operated in 1958: The International
School of Nuclear Science and Engineering at the Argonne
National Laboratory, the Oak Ridge School of Reactor
Technology, the Oak Ridge Institute of Nuclear Studies,
and the new Puerto Rico Training Center.
Under the fellowship program started in 1957, approxi­
mately 150 college graduates will receive assistance for
graduate studies in nuclear energy technology. Other
fellowships to be offered include 100 in radiological
physics, 8 in industrial hygiene, and 11 in industrial
medicine.
Assistanceto schools to provide for expanded educational
programs in atomic energy will be increased over 1957.
Grants will be made to universities to help them acquire
reactor training equipment, teaching aids, demonstration
apparatus, and special laboratory equipment. University
summer courses in general radiobiology will be made avail­
able to high school science teachers, and special faculty
training in reactor technology for university faculty
members will be provided.
To broaden the dissemination of information on
matters relating to atomic energy, the Commission
operates the Technical Information Service and the
American Museum of Atomic Energy at Oak Ridge,
maintains libraries, performs translation services, and
conducts tours with traveling atomic energy exhibits.
The Commission will participate in a second international
conference on atomic energy in calendar year 1958
similar to the Geneva Conference held in August 1955.
8. Communities.—The Commission operates 3 towns—
Oak Ridge, Tenn., Richland, Wash., and Los Alamos,
N. Mex.—with an estimated total population in 1957
of 70,000, and provides limited community services at
other locations. Legislation has been enacted to terminate
Government ownership and operation of Oak Ridge and
Richland; the 1958 estimates are based on anticipated
disposal of a substantial portion of Atomic Energy
Commission-owned real estate by the end of 1958 with
resultant reductions in requirements for property main­
tenance and in revenues. The estimates also include
costs associated with the disposal program and provide for
assistance payments to the community hospital at
Richland which has been transferred to a private nonprofit
organization.
Since real estate revenues normally
exceed operating costs by a substantial amount, the loss in
revenue from property sales together with the costs
of disposal will result in an estimated excess of costs over
revenues of $1.6 million in 1958. This relation between
costs and revenues, which are included under “ Revenues
applied,” is indicated in the following table:

9. Program direction and administration.—The costs of
general management, supervision of program operations,
the negotiation and administration of contracts, the
establishment and enforcement of regulations for civilian
uses of atomic energy, including the issuance of licenses,
and other related administrative activities performed by
Commission personnel represent 2.1 percent of total pro­
gram costs in 1958 as compared with 2.2 percent in 1957.
The estimate for 1958 provides for a higher average level
of employment in support of various activities related to
400000— 57-------8




the peaceful applications of atomic energy in both its
domestic and its international aspects, and to the expanded
effort in the development and production of atomic
weapons for defense. The increase also provides for mov­
ing to and operating the new Atomic Energy Commission
headquarters building near Germantown, Md.
10. Security investigations.—The Atomic Energy Act of
1954 requires background investigations of those persons
proposed for access to restricted data of the atomic energy
program. The number of full background investigations
to be completed is estimated at 33,517 for 1958, compared
with 36,012 for 1957 and 31,316 for 1956.
11. Other costs.—In furthering the objectives of the
Atomic Energy Act of 1954 concerning the utilization of
atomic energy for peaceful purposes, the Commission
furnishes materials and services to industrial organiza­
tions and other private parties apart from those which it
provides normally for its own basic programs. Costs for
these are incurred only upon the request of others.
Charges made for such products and services are included
under “ Revenues applied” as a reduction in determining
the appropriations required. The items included are:

The estimate for 1958 includes $22.4 million to increase
the level of inventories, $215.2 million to increase the level
of undelivered orders, and a reduction of $2.1 million in
collateral funds. The inventories of various kinds are
maintained primarily by contractors to support the op­
eration of Commission-owned production plants and lab­
oratories. The increase in inventories for 1958 is prin­
cipally for special reactor materials for future use in the
Atomic Energy Commission program and the industrial
participation program. The increase in the level of
undelivered orders is related primarily to the production
of weapons and weapons components, and research and
development particularly in the fields of weapons and
reactor development.

PROGRAM AND P ERFO RM AN CE

From this appropriation the Commission constructs
plant and facilities for its production, research, and
supporting operations. Since the Atomic Energy Act of
1954 requires statutory authorization of appropriations
for plant acquisition and construction, obligations are
estimated in 1958 only for projects for which appropria­
tions have already been authorized. No new obligational
authority is requested at this time because the $58.7
million of unobligated balances brought forward from
prior years is more than sufficient to cover the $9.9
million of obligations for these projects. The remaining
$48.8 million is to be applied against 1958 obligational
requirements of projects included in the anticipated
authorization of appropriations for which a supplemental
will be transmitted later (see under the head “ Proposed
for later transmission,” p. 239).
1. Facilities for raw materials.—With the exception of
the Commission’s processing mill at Monticello, Utah,
which was expanded in 1956, all United States mills for
the processing of uranium ores are privately owned.
Other obligations in 1956 and 1957 are for the construc­
tion of access roads to uranium mines and miscellaneous
supporting facilities.
2. Facilities for special nuclear materials.—Under this
activity, the Commission has (a) expanded the production
plants at Oak Ridge, Tenn., and Hanford, Wash, and
(b) constructed new production plants at Paducah, Ky.,
Portsmouth, Ohio, and Savannah River, S. C., and new
feed material plants at Fernald, Ohio, and St. Louis, Mo.
Obligations in 1956 and 1957 are mainly for expansion of
the feed material complex, including a new facility at
Weldon Spring, Mo., and for improvements to the pro­
duction reactors and related facilities at Hanford and
Savannah River.
3. Facilities for weapons.— This activity includes the
construction of facilities for the production of weapons,
for the storage of completed weapons, and for the develop­
ment and engineering of new weapon types.




4. Facilities for reactor development.—The Commission
constructs laboratory buildings for fundamental engineer­
ing work on reactor concepts and reactor materials,
facilities for the testing of reactor experiments, reactors
for the testing of materials, and prototype reactors for
civilian power and military purposes. Obligations in
1956 and 1957 are primarily for (a) test facilities con­
nected with military aircraft nuclear propulsion develop­
ment; (b) land-based prototype naval ship reactors,
including 2 such facilities for submarines and 1 for large
surface ships; (c) an experimental breeder reactor and
the large-scale pressurized water power reactor at Shippingport, Pa., for the civilian power program; (d) partici­
pation with the utility industry in the construction of
other power reactor prototypes; and (e) an engineering
test reactor. Obligations in 1958 are for the completion
of certain previously authorized projects connected with
the development of military aircraft propulsion reactors.
5. Facilities for physical research.—Large research
machines and laboratory buildings are constructed to
further research in physics, chemistry, and metallurgy.
The major portion of the obligations in 1957 are for the
completion of three multibillion electron volt accelerators
which will assist in obtaining new knowledge about the
atomic nucleus and the elementary particles. One of
these is being built at Princeton, N. J., one at Cambridge,
Mass., and one, larger than any now existing, at the
Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton, Long Island.
The 1958 estimates cover the design of another multibillion
electron volt accelerator, the sixth in the United States,
at the Ar^onne National Laboratory, Lemont, 111.
6. Facilities for biology and medicine.—Under this activit}^, research facilities are built for atomic energy research
in the fields of medicine, biology, and biophysics. In
1956, the construction of a new research hospital at the
Brookhaven National Laboratory was initiated.
7. Facilities for communities.— Housing and other com­
munity facilities are constructed in the Commissionoperated towns of Richland, Wash., Oak Ridge, Tenn.,
and Los Alamos, N. Mex. Obligations in 1956 and 1957
are primarily for a new community hospital at Oak Ridge,
for municipal facilities in Oak Ridge and Richland con­
nected with the community disposal program, and for
additional housing at Los Alamos. A few miscellaneous
projects at Richland and Los Alamos are programed
for 1958. ^ _
8. Facilities for administration.—Obligations in 1956
and 1957 are mainly for the construction of the new head­
quarters building at Germantown, Md. Other obliga­
tions provide for renovation or conversion of space for
administrative purposes at other locations.

This limitation covers expenses incurred by the Civil
Service Commission in the administration of the Federal
Employees’ Group Life Insurance Act. The use of these
funds is reflected in the schedule for advances and reim­
bursements, Civil Service Commission. The increase in
the limitation for 1958 is due to the extra workload
anticipated when the fund fully maintains the additional
95,000 members of 9 employee beneficial associations.
Financial statements relating to the Federal employees’
life insurance fund are printed in part III of the budget
document.
A proposal for later transmission appears at the end of
this chapter to increase the administrative expense
limitation for 1957.

PROGRAM AND P E RF O RM AN CE

For 1957 and prior years this appropriation was the
means of making the Government’s payment to the
retirement fund. Legislation enacted in the last session
of the 84th Congress requires that beginning in July 1957
agencies pay to the fund an amount equal to deductions
from employees’ salaries. Agency payments will equal
6.5 percent of covered payroll. Since the total of these
payments will be greater than amounts heretofore pro­
vided through this appropriation, no governmentwide
appropriation is recommended for 1958.
Financial statements relating to the civil-service retire­
ment and disability fund are printed in part III of the
budget.

and political subdivisions for civil defense purposes, and
stockpiles medical, and radiological defense equipment
and supplies.
In fiscal year 1958, increased activity will take place
in the public civil defense education, information, and
training programs, research activities, and operational
capabilities. Overall staff resources will be expanded by
56 percent. Stockpiling of emergency hospitals, medical
supplies, and radiological detection equipment will con­
tinue at an increased rate. Civil defense responsibilities
delegated to other agencies will be expanded to further
promote the integration of civil defense into the entire

PROGRAM AND PERFO RM AN CE

1. Civil-defense planning.—Intelligence on modern
weapons and enemy capability is obtained and evaluated
for civil-defense implications and national civil-defense
plans are developed. Appropriate research programs are
undertaken and liaison with other Federal agencies is
maintained to assure a coordinated Federal program.
Civil-defense functions which should be delegated to other
Federal agencies are identified and the overall delegation
program is administered.
2. Civil-defense education services.—Civil-defense train­
ing methods, materials, and devices are developed and
made available to State and local organizations. Infor­
mation on weapons effects and preventive measures that
may be taken for survival are provided to the general
public. The objectives of the program are to achieve
public awareness of basic survival techniques and to pro­
vide the incentive for obtaining further information and
participating in training activities. All available media
are employed. Instructional and informational material
covers such subjects as protection against fallout, recep­
tion of evacuees, Conelrad, rumor and panic, mutual aid,
shelter, emergency action, first aid, and police, fire, and
warden training, all designed to provide the necessary
knowledge for survival in the event of nuclear attack.
The Administration will initiate an advanced civil-defense
course in fiscal year 1958. Each 3-month course will pro­
vide advanced training for about 50 professional civildefense workers. The A dministration will also open two
new basic civil-defense training schools in 1958 to be
located near large population centers. Almost 14,000
people have completed one or more basic civil-defense
courses. An estimated 5,000 additional people will be
trained in 1958.
3. Operations control services.—A nationwide attack
warning and communications system extending from Air
Force control centers to State and local control points is
provided. The survival planning program is adminis­
tered. Practical and logistic civil-defense techniques are
developed and disseminated. Natural disaster assistance
is coordinated. As a result of improvements started in
1957 and to be completed in 1958, the average warning
time to key points will be cut from an average of 15 to




125

less than 1 minute. Funds are provided in 1958 to inte­
grate the warehouses into the civil-defense communica­
tion network, and to conduct a survey to determine
location and specifications for protected underground
control centers at headquarters and regional offices.
4. Technical advisory services.—Solutions to technical
problems of physical damage, radiological hazards, and
casualty care are devised and made available to State and
local civil-defense organizations. In 1958, all activities
will be expanded with specific emphasis on shelter research
and radiological defense.
5. Field representation.—Civil-defense plans and meth­
ods developed at the national headquarters are made
available to the States and municipalities through the
seven regional offices. Close working relationships are
developed with State and local officials and civil-defense
organizations to promote civil-defense activities. The
regional offices also serve as clearing points for Federal
assistance to areas affected by natural disasters. A sub­
stantial increase in field staff will be made in 1958 to pro­
vide for greater assistance to States and cities in carrying
out their civil-defense programs.

PROGRAM AND PERFO RM AN CE

Materials and equipment not normally available or not
present in quantities needed to cope with conditions caused
by enemy attack are stockpiled in strategic locations.
This program will be greatly expanded in 1958.
1.
Medical supplies and equipment.—The purpose of this
program is to establish stockpiles of medical supplies and
equipment in proportion to the estimated number of
surviving casualties. Medical supplies and equipment to
be purchased through 1957, with the exception of
emergency hospitals, will provide basic medical care for
4,250,000 casualties during the first 3 post-attack weeks.

IN D E P E N D E N T

The 1958 estimates, except for the hospitals, provide
medical supplies and equipment to care for an additional
500.000 casualties. Basic equipment for approximately
1,900 emergency hospitals will be ordered through 1957.
The 1958 budget proposes the procurement of 750 addi­
tional definitive hospitals and 1,600 forward treatment
centers.
2. Radiological and chemical warfare defense equip­
ment.— The objective of this program is to develop a
state of preparedness to minimize effectiveness of radiologi­
cal and chemical aspects of modern warfare. The present
goal of the radiological defense program is to procure 1
million survey meters and 10 million to 20 million self­
reading dosimeters of which approximately 375,000
survey meters and 900,000 dosimeters will have been
procured by June 30, 1958. Most of these instruments
will be loaned or granted to States and political sub­
divisions for training purposes.
3. Warehousing and maintenance of stockpile.—Stock­
piled supplies and equipment are stored under the follow­
ing criteria: (1) minor storage locations of approximately
10.000 to 15,000 square feet are used for pre-positioning
hospitals, medical supplies, and radiological instruments;
(2) major storage locations of approximately 50,000
square feet are used in support of one or more target
areas; and (3) general reserve storage locations of from
100.000 to 500,000 square feet are used in support of wide
geographical regions.
Government-owned and con­
trolled installations are used where possible. Through
1956 approximately $170 million of supplies and equip­
ment had been stockpiled in 38 warehouses.

1. Survey plans.—Funds are made available to States
and certain metropolitan area organizations for surveys
and studies leading to the development of survival plans.
Such studies will provide operational plans which con­
template all effects of modern weapons and will relate
such effects to particular geographical areas. Forty-two
studies have been completed or are now in progress. It is
estimated that at least 38 additional areas will start
studies in 1957.
2. Research.—Research is conducted to solve various
civil-defense problems. Important areas to be covered in
1958 include: Warning and communications; radiological
defense; shelter; medical; fire; biological and chemical
warfare; and damage assessment and reporting systems.

Delegations of responsibility have been made to seven
Federal establishments to make full use of those depart­
ments and agencies which can be of value in furthering an
integrated civil-defense effort. A new delegation of re­
sponsibility to the Post Office Department to plan emer­
gency registration services is in process in 1957. The
delegations have been designed to recognize the basic
needs for survival and to provide the basic support for
survival in a civil-defense emergency, without duplicating
activities of other Federal agencies. Such fundamental
relief requirements as food, fuel, clothing, medical assist­
ance, and emergency housing are included in the delegated
responsibilities. The program for 1958 provides for an
expansion of the work undertaken in 1957.

FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION
Investment in Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation

The Corporation insures accounts of depositors in in­
sured banks up to $10,000. As of June 30, 1956, the
deposit insurance fund for the protection of depositors
amounted to $1.69 billion or 1.48 percent of all insured
deposits, which amounted to approximately $114.6 billion
on that date. No tax funds are used in its operations.
Its expenses are paid and the fund is accumulated from
assessments paid by insured banks and from income on
investments in obligations of the U. S. Treasury. How­
ever, the Corporation is authorized to borrow from the
Treasury, not to exceed $3 billion outstanding at any one
time, as required for insurance purposes. No borrowings
under this authorization have been made to date and none
are anticipated in 1957 or 1958.

1. Mediation and conciliation of labor disputes.—During
the last year the number of disputes brought to the atten­
tion of the Service was over 33,000. About 23,000 were
assigned for initial inquiry to determine the progress of
the parties towards voluntary settlement and need for
Federal mediation assistance. Over 14,000 disputes were
mediated and closed during the year.
The number of dispute assignments are expected to
increase moderately and the amount of time devoted to
individual disputes will also increase.
The estimates for 1958 will enable the Service to provide
inservice training of the mediators and for additional
offices in important locations.
2. Presidential boards of inquiry.—Boards of inquiry
may be appointed by the President when, in his judgment,
an existing or threatened work stoppage in an essential
industry will imperil the national health or safety.
