Kep Halleck of Indiana, GOP floor leader, told newsmen many excise or sales taxes so high there" is no-doubt they im- pose extreme hardships and are doing much to' stifle certain seg- nts of business." But he added: 'Of course, in view of the fiscal situation of the government, In any study. of excises we would also have to give attention to additional revenues as necessary to offset losses." Halleck declined to 'discuss pos- sible new sources .of revenue. House Speaker Martin touched off a new round of specula- tion yesterday by backing a pro- posal to.cut all excise or sales taxes above 10 per cent down tn that level, except for liquor and above 10 per cent and are seriously hurting some businesses. His- proposal would slash the present 25 per cent rate on loiig distance telephone calls. 20 pei cent taxes on furs, jew elrj. cos- metics, luggage women's hand bags, movie and other admissions photographic equipment and some lesser items; and 15 per cent rates on sporting goods, pens and pen cds, lighters, local telephone bills and domestic wires.
