on dividend and interest in vv H i defeat had been conceded in advance by administration Mrugglmg to put the watercddown tax revision bill the Senate of the vote Wednesday against i i i U surpnse cven the little group of Democrats who tried to keep it in the bill Only 19 Democrats and one Repub lican John Sherman Cooper of Kentucky supported the Pipsi ient 34 Democrats and 32 Re publicans opposed the provision Theres a chance the proposal will he salvaged in conference be cause the House included it in passing the measure in March But the strongest advocates of the plan said their hope is slim The Treasury estimated the dividend and interest withholding plan would bring in about million a year in taxes now evaded by failure to report about billion of such income This was to be the biggest item in paying for the major feature of the investment credit to spur US business to buy new machinery and equipment Without withholding the bill is estimated to mean a substantial annual deficit to the Treasury Meanwhile Senate liberals vowed to wage a determined fight against proposed tax deductions for lobbying The liberals hoped to reverse their losing record on President Kennedys tax revision bill now in its fourth day of debate They have lost three consecutive votes on provisions in the trimmed down measure Sen Albert Gore DTenn said he amendment cleared by the Senate Finance committee to per mit businesses to write off ex penses for lobbying would encour age wellfinanced lobbying on a grand nationwide scale Sen Robert S Kerr DOkla floor manager for the bill indi cated he would press for action on more than onehalf dozen com mittee amendments in an effort to complete work on the meas ure in time for a Labor Day re cess Liberals led by Sens Gore and Paul H Douglas DI11 also suf fered a setback when the Senate accepted the committees modi led version relating to tax deduc ions for business account spend ng The Senate version would produce an estimated million in new revenues a year by tight ening up some loopholes This compares with million under the plan passed by the house The vote was 54 to 39 If less than twothirds vote yes those who A matter of simple arithmetic Wheat vote is formality By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTONThe election on acreage allotments for whea Thursday was largely pro forma Fanners invariably have voted to accept the tight production con trols by margins well over the twothirds required by law Its a matter of simple arithmetic If farmers marketing quotas based on a 55million acre national wheat allotment the sup port price will be per bushel shouk stayed within allotments would get onl per bushel Like anybodj else cashcrop farmers seldom vote against Santa Glaus The election is pro forma pre sumably in another sense The wheat crop for 1963 wilt be de termined largely by what kind o program comes put of the Senate House conference new omnibus farm bill Secretary of Agriculture Orville Freeman said that he was no ruling out the possibility that Con gross would enact a program for the 1963 crop in which farmers could voluntarily idle acres for which they would receive com pensatory payment The House version of the omni bus bill passed by a 229163 roll call vote on July 19 merely ex tended for one year the present temporary programs for whcal and feed grains The administra tion had the Senate had previously a long term supply management pro gram The Senate on Aug 22 acceptec the House bill but substituted the administrations two price pro gram for wheat This would fix a minimum national allotment of one billion bushels equal to 4 million acres The present mini mum national allotment is 55 mil lion acres Farmers would grow ccrtif icale wheat for domestic and export use this to be supported at from 65 to 90 per cent of parity instead of the present 75 to 90 per cent Other feed and be supported at much lower levels fixed by the Secretary What is likely to come out of the SenateHouse conference on two versions of the bill is a compromise on wheat Planting deadlines for winter wheat are upon us Secretary Freeman when he set the referendum said that farmers couldnt wait any longer A likely compromise would be o invite farmers to disc under 10 per cent say of the acreage they have planted with compensatory payments of say 50 per cent of normal valueof the average yield of the retired acreage This would give the farmer about the same profit he might have expected from the unproductive land It would save the government a good deal of money The Senate bill represents an opening wedgo for the administra tions permanent program It could stand up for the 19fi4 crop Even i though acreage planted to wheat and feed grains has been cut back to the lowest level since the this years harvest is expected to approach the record 1960 crop Exports have eased the w ITJtWtllr levels the surplus next June 30 will be reduced by a further 200 million bushnls a ns
