Temporary Tax Specifically, Shultz and Simon urged enactment of a tempo- rary tax that would drain wind- fall profits from 'the recent boosts in crude oil prices. The levy would phase out if price levels stabilize during the com- ing years. They also proposed to deny U.S. oil producers the deprecia- tion allowance on crude oil pro- duced abroad and to slash the extent to which payment ol taxes to foreign countries may be used to offset U.S. taxes on other foreign-generated income. Simon said he "resists the term rollback" because it in dicates going back to some pasl "uneconomic but he in dicated he could live with some percentage above a base price "I'm interested in the Presiden having an ability lo the prices don't go to emotiona Simon added. When Rep. Al Ullman (D acting chairman of the panel, asked about how close the nation might be to gasoline rationing, Simon said that, with help from the weather and coop eration by the American people "we're holding our own." "Shortages are still of a spol nature and don't justify imple- menting a rationing system for 50 states We've got a bettei than 50-50 chance of beating ra- tioning." Jennie M. Tisher Jennie M.
