Byrnes Heads New Foes Of ! Profits Levy •
Senate Group For Abolition, Opposing House
I WASHINGTON. April 2 0—Of* — Powerful new pressure for complete abolition of the undistributed profits tax came today from an unex-! pected source—the senate unemployment committee—but Roosevelt lieutenants in the house still insisted the levy be retained. REPORT C HEERS CRITICS There was no sign the new development would break the deadlock between the senate, which has voted repeal of the tax, and the home, which has decided to regain it in modified form*
Nevertheless, critics of the tax were heartened by the report of th? unemployment committee headed by Senator Bjrnes <D-SC>, usually a strong supporter of the administration. The committee, which has been studying the cause and cure of joblessness, declared enactment of revenue legislation along lines approved by the senate “will be exceedingly helpful” in reducing unemployment.
The senate bill, besides providing repeal of the surplus tax. calla for a flat 15 per cent flat rate on capital gains in lieu of a house-approved graduated scale.
Business men have contended the senate bill would encourage business and unfreeze capital.
PROOF DEMANDED But President Roosevelt had endorsed the house measure. When Chairman Doughton <D-NC> of the house ways and means committee was asked today whether the Byrnes committee report would , change the minds of house con-

The exteasion service representative also appeared before a meeting of rural residents and Kiwanis club members at CH alo Wednesday evening.
In pointing out inequalities in freight rates and tariffs, Haines declared that many farm implements manufactured in the United States are sold cheaper in foreign countries than at home.
Through tariff restrictions, not only cotton but other products are being exported leas, he said. Tariff walls prevent the importation of foreign goods, and without this source of income, foreign countries are unable to buy from America, he said.
Haines praised the work of Secretary of State Cordell Hull in formation of reciprocal trade treaties with foreign countries. Export of American goods to these countries has increased much faster than their imports to the United States, he said.
Afer the meeting, officers of the agricultural association outlined plans for a membership campaign. Community meetings will be scheduled soon, said Hammond.
Twenty new members were signed tip Wednesday, bringing the total of those who have paid 1938 dues to 50.
