Martin maps strategy on tax Bill fight Republican Leader Calls policy committee huddle on what he Calls phony new tax Bill Battles Washington june 23.�? pm House Republican Leader Martin of Massachusetts called his policy committee to a huddle today to map party strategy on what he called the a Mph Onyx new tax Bill. Some republicans privately describing the Bill As a political dynamite a said they will vote for it despite misgivings about some of its features. The vote is expected next week. The measure would slash excise taxes an estimated $1,010,000,000 on fur Coats jewelry Luggage cosmetics movie tickets travel tickets Telephone Bills and scores of other items. It would make up the excise Revenue loss to a Large degree by new taxes on big corporations. Rep. Kean a november of the ways and Means committee said a this Bill reduces the tax on luxuries and transfers the tax Burden to Maitin told newsmen a it is a kind of phony tax reduction Bill. True it gives Relief to some taxpayers but at the same time it makes taxes much More burdensome on other?.�?� the gop Leader and Many other republicans As Well As democrats have been battling for reduction of the wartime excise taxes to make up tiie Revenue loss the excise Relief should be accompanied by reduction in government spending. Moreover he contends that excise reductions will stimulate business so that actually the government is not Likely to suffer any Revenue loss by cutting the excises. Ways and Means committee chairman dough ton de the top democratic tax manager takes the View also that the $633,000,000 boost in taxes on big uni portions goes too far. He said that he would rather see a reduction of government spending to save Money. He is going to Pilot through the House the Bill approved by the committee however since it apparently is the Only Way now t Oget excises Cut. The measure applies increased tax rates Only to corporations earning $167,000 or More a year while reducing the tax Burden for corporations earning Between $5000 and $167,000. Kean said that this actually will mean that the smaller corporations will get a tax reduction of about $267,000,000 and the larger corporations that produce about 75 per cent of the nations goods will have to pay about $700,000,-000 More a year.

Commissioner Sam k. Neal said today he has decided against asking gov. Gordon Browning to Send National guardsmen Here. Neal a decision awaited since an outbreak of gunfire wounded four men yesterday came after hours of investigation which carried far into the night. Governor Browning has indicated he will follow Neal a recommendation in the Enka strife. He and adj. Gen. Sam t. Wallace came Here yesterday with 75 Highway patrolmen to restore order. Browning returning last night from Washington said he would await word from Neal and Wallace before deciding whether guardsmen would be needed. A fall but eight or nine of the nearly 100 men and women picked up for questioning after the gunfire erupted Early yesterday were released during the Ning said Neal. The 13-week-old strike by the Cio textile workers Union has spawned repeated violent incidents since the Plant reopened for production late in May.

Drive opens on approval foreign arms administration Hopes for Senate approval on Bill which would put arms on Europe defense fronts Washington june 23.�? pm administration forces opened a drive today for Senate approval of a program which would place americans most modern weapons a except atomic bombs along the defense frontiers of Western Europe. Senator Connally of Texas had the Job of guiding the $1,222,500,-000 foreign arms plan into its second year of operation. There was trouble ahead mostly from republicans. The major Points of dispute were 1. A provision to give president Truman authority to hand Over $122,250,000 Worth of arms to any european nation whose defense he considers vital to the Security of the United states. 2. An amendment which would permit the u. S. Government to sell arms on credit to any Friendly nation. 3. A proposal by senator lodger mass to permit Marshall plan nations to draw on $5,000,000,000 of european recovery funds for military purposes. Quot these funds Are local currencies deposited by european countries to match recovery dollars o High officials give okeh on twin aircraft Carrier of $125 million Job junked Washington june 23.�?�?the Navy plans to Start building a flush deck aircraft Carrier in 1951 Only a Little smaller than the huge vessel which became a Center of controversy last year after construction on it was halted. A High Navy official confirmed last night that the joint chiefs of staff and Secretary of defense Johnson had Given a go ahead on the new vessel. It will have a runway about 25 feet longer than the 986-foot deck on the largest u. S. Carriers now in service. The projected a super carriers which Johnson junked last year after the keel had been Laid would have been 1090 feet Long and would have Cost an estimated $125,000,000. The new Carrier is expected to Cost somewhat less. Johnson a action in ordering work stopped on the 65,000-ton Carrier a United states raised a storm of protest among Navy officials. Secretary of the Navy John l. Sullivan quit his Job with a denunciation of Johnson. The Carrier Issue later played a major role in the Sharp attack launched against Pentagon policies before a congressional committee by a Parade of Navy admirals. Adm. Louis e. Denfeld chief of naval operations was ousted following his participation in the affair. Adm. Forrest p. Sherman who succeeded Denfeld told lawmakers earlier this year that eventually flush decked carriers would be needed to accommodate Large planes. Existing carriers have an a a Island superstructure rising on one Side of the runway limiting the size of the aircraft which can operate on the deck. The Baltimore Sun said last night that a the Navy has been encouraged to seek two of the revolutionary new vessels next autumn As a result of a import economies in other naval project six it said one might be new and another created from an existing vessel. While Money for a new Carrier presumably would have to be approved by Congress there seems Little question that the lawmakers will look favourably on the project. Along somewhat similar lines the Senate armed services committee yesterday approved a $350,000,-000 Navy modernization Bill. Already passed by the House the measure would permit construction of 50,000 tons of new ships including 10,000 tons of experimental types and the conversion of an additional 200,000 tons of existing Craft. A Senate appropriations subcommittee also acted to step up the Navy modernization program yesterday by approving a measure to bring up to Date 10 submarines and six destroyers.

Army Congress holds out some Promise of citizenship for aliens who enlist in u. S. Forces despite protests Washington june 23.�? it a Congress held out a Promise of citizenship today to hand picked aliens who enlist in the u. S. Army. The lawmakers brushed off protests that the aliens might spy either for or against this country. Under a provision approved by the House yesterday 2500 foreigners would be eligible to become americans after serving in the army for five years. A Bill previously passed by the Senate sets the total at 10,000 but provides no time limit. A Compromise will have to be approved by both houses before the legislation goes to president Truman. Before passing the measure the Lious heard some of its a members voice opposition on two counts. A few lawmakers expressed repugnance at the thought that the aliens might be sought As spies for this country others voiced fear that they might spy for Russia presumably those enlisted under the Bill which has army backing a would be refugees from Iron curtain countries. Among other changes the House wrote into the Senate Bill a requirement that the aliens shall serve in established units with citizen soldiers and not in separate organizations. This requirement chairman Vinson a a of the armed services committee said was designed to remove fears that the United states v As preparing to set up a foreign legion. The Senate would have provided Quick citizenship for any enlisted alien entering the United states or its territories under military orders regardless of length of service. The House decided that the alien must have completed five or More years of honorable military service and be a otherwise qualified before being allowed to make the United states his permanent Home. Vinson told the House the army wants the legislation because it needs the specialized services of the services of the men to be enlisted. He assured his colleagues that All the aliens a will be hand picked and none of them will be communists. The army needs them he said for their special knowledge of the terrain language philosophies and other characteristics of the countries a we May have to Deal he did no to name the countries but left Little doubt that the enlistees will come mainly from russian controlled countries and will be valuable if they Ever have to reenter those countries with other United states troops.
