FROM OUR WIRE SEEVICES WASHINGTON Treasury Secretary Douglas Dillon made clear Thursday that President Kennedy is not backing down on any of the major provisions in his heavilycriticized tax re form bill Dillon vigorously supported the bill in testimony before the Senate Finance committee particularly Kennedys proposal to withhold 20 cents on every dollar of income from dividends and interest The tax now is supposed to be paid on a quar terly or annual basis Dillon suggested several tech nical modifications designed to clarify and in some cases sim plify the complex 240page bill passed March 29 by the House Among the recommends tions Dillon suggested several changes in the hotlydisputed withholding provision which has come under heavy fire from savings and loan institutions and other groups Kennedy told his news con ference Wednesday that ads taken by savings institutions op posing the proposal had bad ly misinformed the public into thinking it was a new tax The President noted that dividend and interest income is taxable now but said many were evad ing it cither deliberately or by oversight Dillon suggested that cates exempting certain taxpay ers from the withholding be ex tended to include other non taxable groups such as non profit organizations pension funds churches colleges and state and local governments The changes he said would make the plan as efficient as
