Officials, willing to discuss the subject provided they were not quoted by name, said this outlook holds true regardless of the out- come of the November election. They said the election has noth- ing to do with it.

President Truman would stil! have the duty of sending it to Congress some two weeks before the next presidential term begins Jan. 20 even if he lost the election to G.O.P. candidate Thomas E. Dewey.

‘Final decisions will not be made on the 1950 budget until Decem- ber, after the Budget Bureau has gone over with individual agen- cies the budget program each sub- mits for itself next week.

The final clineher ‘of the 45 bil- lion figure as they see it is in- creased military spending, a partly- automatic result of contract au- thority given the armed forces by the last Congress under a grow- ing strain in relations with Russia.

Payments for planes contracted for this year will become budget expenditures in 1950 ag the planes are delivered. So will the added costs of fueling, manning and maintaining them. Costs also will rise as draftees swell the num- bers in uniform.

But this figure is three billion more than the military cost item in this year’s $42,200,000,000 budget —and seemingly enough by itself to push the 1950 budget above 45 billion dollars unless other costs

Action at Clayton Is Move |

Towards Consolidation Nominees Recom- mended by Committee in May Elected.

The first St, Louis County Board of Education was elected

yesterday at a convention of 4di-.

rectors of 86 county school dis- tricts in the Clayton High School Auditorium.

The meeting was held pursuant to a law enacted by the last Legis- lature, the purpose of which was to provide a more effective pro- cedure for ‘consolidation of dis- tricts. :

The meeting was attended by 133 of the 363 directors of county districts who accepted the six candidates chosen by “recom- mending” committee appointed last May 30 at a meeting called to discuss the pending bill.
