Flanders VU, also called for a reduction In taxes on low-Income Individuals and voluntary restraints on profits and wage Increases, as well as a return to installment buying curbs. In a report to the joint economic committee headed by Senator Ro- bert Taft the Flanders subgroup also said that further in- vestigation is needed of the 40-hour work week, adding: "We often refer to the miracles of production In the war, but they were not accomplished, on a 40-hour We may be facing the neces- sity of a temporary increase to the work week if we are to furnish the products required for European, re- lief and reconstruction, without lowering our domestic consump- tion."

"He is already being involun- tarily -rationed higher Income consumer can follow the rules given by the Luckman committee literally and faithfully without making any reduction la his total intake of meat, and eggs." The subcommittee- said voluntary rationing should be tried first but added "since it may not work suf- ficiently quickly or effectively, the Congress might well give considera- tion to setting up the mechanism for limited rationing of important foodstuffs only." Income Tax Relief Pointing to a "submerged group." particularly in the cities, which it said is not getting enough to eat because of high, prices, the subcom- mittee proposed that income tax relief be given to Oils class by in- creasing the allowance for depend- ents. While the Flanders group called for voluntary restraint on profits and- wages, it urged an Increase In. the present 40-cents-an-hour mini- mum wage level. Tho subcommittee criticized ai "illogical nnd harmful" the Com- modity Credit Corporation's action, in buying up eggs and withdrawing them from the market last July 15. On the other hand. It said that jovernment support of farm and increased agricultural produc- tion to near maximum levels and probably had helped keep retail prices down tlmt way.
