Taxes Are Outlawed WASHINGTON July 31 Middlewestern congressmen will seek to have the protective tariff on manufactured goods reduced if the processing taxes on farm commod ities are declared invalid by the su preme court Senator Murphy and Representa tive Biermann both Iowa demo crats said today they were ready to introduce a joint resolution au thorizing the president to lower the customs duties if the processing taxes arc ruled out The justice of such a procedure Biermann said can hardly be de nied During nearly 70 years the farmers and the agricultural re gions of our country have been the victims of the protective tariff sys tem The AAA with its processing tax and its reward for restricted production hag been calculated to offset in some degree the effects of the protective tariff which have been so damaging to agriculture If the AAA shall be declared un constitutional and if the farmers in that way are deprived of the bene fit of the processing tax and of co operative restriction of production I believe that it is fair that the tariff on the things that the farm ers buy should be correspondingly decreased DIAMOND Block Salt 2lb Box Crackers 15c Candy Bars 4 for IOC
