The senate taxation committee recommended passage of the 3 per cent sales tax after making numerous amendments to the measure as it passed the house. One of the amendments would five the cities a larger share of the estimated in revenue, while mother would exempt milk, bread 'and news- papers from the tax. The amendment giving cities i greater share provides that the -10 per cent remaining after schools and poor relief have been given a 60 per cent cut' shall he allotted to the coun- ties on the basis at the tax duplicates in their cities. Columbus, 0., Nov. 28. As a new allocation provision to benefit cities was proposed to save the proposed sales tax, the senate taxation committee pondered an opinion today that the house- enacted income tax was unconstitu- tional. Prof. Clarence D. Laylin told the committee last night a Missouri court decision, held the possibility oC balking the income tax as framed by the house because it was de- signed to provide that the tax be levied on 1934 income and be col- lected in March, 1935. Laylin, who drafts most of the tax legislation submitted to the as- sembly, said the Missouri decision held that under a constitution a slate cannot adopt a tax law levying on incomes accruing in a year which already has passed. Since the income tax, along with the sales, liquid fuel and increased utility excise taxes, were proposed to raise funds for 1935 only, it wiis problematical whether the sen- ate could go along on it with the constitutional question in doubt. The proposed income tax, legis- lated by the house, already had in- curred displeasure because of its rates, and business interests were attacking it as threatening the foundations of business in Ohio. The house had been insisting, meantime, Unit it favored a sales tax only if accompanied by the in- come tax. Acts To Save Tax The move to save the sales tax legislation from the disaster which threatened by reason ot dissatisfac- tion with its revenues for municipal purposes came from Carlton.S. Dar- stale lax cominiissioner. (He said that instead o! distribut- ing a remainder, after poor relief, schools and other needs were cared for, to counties for distribution on a population-tax duplicate basis, the money shoitW ire distributed on the basis of tax duplicates. 1- This, he said, would bring more revenue to nninicipalilics who have bci-ii clamoring that the house- adopted measure would make con- diifons even worse for (hem, and would relieve many rural areas of the embarrassment of having more money Mian they could spend.

Speakership Race Now Growing Hot Byrns and Rayburn Lead; Alabama's Bankhead in Dark Horse Position Axsoclnfed Frem AVashington, Nov. 28. As the race for the spcakership of tho new house turned the back rail today, most observers believed Representatives Byrns of Tennessee and Rayburn of Texas, were in the lead, with Bankhead of Alabama pulling i'ar ahead of a field of dark horses. The terrific pace indicates an early decision, although the actual selection of the winner will not take place until a democratic cau- eiio, January 2. Campaigning for Byrns, the demo- cratic leader, and Eayburn, said by some to have support in administra- tion circles, has become intense. Bankhead is to arrive Monday to get his campaign under way. His chances are generally believed to lie .in a deadlock between Kayburn and Byrns. The return to Washington on De- cember 6, of Vice-Z3resident Garner, may have some Bearing on the race. Garner is to confer with President Kooscvt'lt on democratic organiza- tion policies and legislative pro- gram.

Roosevelt To 0. K. Bonus Compromise Senate Finance Committee Head Speaks Following Talk With President Washington, Nov. 28- Chairman Harrison of the1 senate finance committee made the flat prediction toila.y that if advocates of the soldiers bonus would agree to a compromise to cash the service certificates now for only the needy former service men it would be passed by congress. Harrison was just back from a trip to Warm Springs, where he dis- cussed the bonus and other ques- tions with President Roosevelt. The statement appeared to leave no doubt that the administration would approve of such a compro- mise. "The bonus is receiving consider- ation from every Harrison said at a press conference. "If proponents would agree that those ex-service men Avho are in need should be given immediate pay- ment of the service certificates, 1 haven't the slightest doubt we could get together and pass the legisla- tion."

"The President is (he he said, "and what he finally decides to do as in the best interest of the country in the matter of the bonus, the congress will sustain him in that position."

Today Harry L. McEIroy, chief of state p.olice detectives, said "the mass of clues and details is stead- ily Unking the Duncansville and Carlisle crimes into one." McElroy has sifted dozens of leads, and though many were dis- carded after long and wearisome tracing, he announced "we have fl chain of circumstances that you can't jump over." Trails have led to New England, California and Baltimore. On the strength of leads from lodging places within a radius of 100 miles of Carlisle, the police are concentrating major attention within Pennsylvania boundaries. The trail appears U> run from South Langhorne, cast of Philadel- phia, west to Duncansville. An adult couple and three chil- dren stopped at several places along that roule, police have learned, but it has not been definitely estab- lished that they were the same five described at each point, or that they were the five whose bodies were found. A theory that the girls died of suffocation was advanced by an ex- amining pathologist but no official verdict has been given by the cor- oner. "Murder and Suicide" was the police verdict in the deaths of the man and woman. A police official also was quoted in reports as saying the holding of a "mystery woman" provided the "best break" in the case. Hours after she was reported held there were no developments. State police are to question the proprietress of a tourist camp at Soulh Langhorne on the Lincoln highway, where the East-West lodg- ing trail starts. 500 DEPUTY REGISTRARS TO HANDLE AUTO TAGS Columbus, 0., Nov. 28.
