To support tax measure background of tax problem analysis of $11 billion tax Cut by James Marlow Washington apr president Kennedy has had to feel his Way toward the $11-billion tax Cut he asked the people to support wednesday night in his television and radio broadcast. His argument can be put this ways taxes Are too High and have been for years. If they re Cut people and corporations will have More Money to spend. This by pepping up the Economy will be insurance against another recession. Concern about a recession has been on his mind since he took office in 1961 although the word a a recession can be a delicate one with presidents. President Eisenhower on Jan. 18, 1961�?two Days before he turned Over the White House to Kennedy told Congress in his economic report that there had been a a a decline in the Economy. Kennedy went a lot stronger than that la Days later. In his state of the Union message to Congress on Jan. 29,1961, Kennedy said a we take office in the Wake of seven months of recession three and a half years of he pointed Back to the recession of 1958�?which Eisenhower at the time had also called a recession and said this country a recovery from that one was incomplete. On it Ress Nian sees pressure in airline Lase Washington apr an irate Illinois congressman citing possible a undue pressures has called for an investigation of influence used on the civil aeronautics Board to persuade that Agency to reverse its decision in the Northeast airlines Case. Rep. William l. Springer r-111., proposed yesterday that Congress investigate the Justice department a and others who might be trying to coerce the cab. The aeronautics Board last month lifted the temporary certificate of Northeast to continue its new York Miami flights. The cab then denied a Justice department petition to intervene in the matter and said its original decision would stand. A Senate Commerce subcommittee also has investigated the cabs finding legislation has been offered to Force renewal of the lines franchise South of new York and congressmen have assailed the cabs ruling. Springer said the Justice department intervention petition rejected by the cab As a a untimely made a allegations without supporting evidence that the cab had favored Strong carriers Over a weak one and had ignored the Public Springer said this plus the a activities of some members of the Senate and House to persuade the cab to reverse its decision appeared to him to be undue pressure on an Independent Agency created by Congress. He said pressures being brought to Bear appear More intense than any investigated in 1958 by the former House legislative oversight committee. But springers statements did not Stem the almost uninterrupted flow of complaints about the cabs decision. Negro leaders . Will talk on Birmingham Washington apr president Kennedy will talk thursday with the Rev. Martin Luther King or. And six other negro leaders on the racial situation in Birmingham Ala. Pierre Salinger White House press Secretary announced today plans for the meeting. He said the seven negroes a five of them from Birmingham a have indicated they want to give Kennedy a report on conditions in that City. Racial tension already taut was heightened by the sunday bombing of a negro Church at Birmingham. Four negro children were killed. Salinger said he had no indication As to what if Amy specific action the negroes might ask Kennedy to take. By the end of june 1961, after he had been in office six months he reported the United states a had emerged from the but fear of another one was High in his mind As he showed later. He referred wednesday night As he had before to four recessions since the War 1948-49 1953-54 1958-59 and 1960-61. He said High tax rates had helped cause the last two recessions. In his first year Kennedy proposed various measures to bolster the Economy but by 1962 he had definitely settled on a tax Cut As a program to pursue although in the beginning he Only inched up to the problem. In his budget message in january 1962, Kennedy did t ask for a direct tax Cut but suggested Congress give him stand by authority to Cut taxes if the Economy began to show sickness. Later in the year he went further and talked of wanting Congress to Cut taxes across the Board for individuals and corporations in 1963, a Cut applying to 1963 income. This did no to get anywhere. But starting out this year he made the across the Board tax Cut his major program for 1963. It eventually became apparent As this tardy Congress Dawdle along that even if it approved a Cut it would t apply to 1963 income. Then last week he got Over his first big hurdle when the House ways and Means committee which handles tax matters approved 17 to 8 a tax Cut of $11 billion. Fifteen democrats and two republicans teamed up to approve the measure Over the opposition of eight republicans. Approval by this committee was a necessary preliminary before the full House could get a Chance to vote on it. The full House tackles it next week. And wednesday night Kennedy used some of his television time to take a swipe at foes of the Bill mostly republicans. Republicans quickly announced they will demand equal television time to answer. But even if the House gives Kennedy the tax Cut he wants there can to be any tax reduction unless the Senate also approves and it May be weeks before a Senate committee even begins hearings and More weeks before there can be a full vote on the Bill in the Senate if it Ever gets there. In his economic report last january Kennedy said in the 1948-49 and 1953-54 recessions a tax Cut had helped Check the decline and Spur recovery. Congress Cut taxes $4.7billion in 1948, just before the full Impact of the recession was Felt. The upturn began in october 1949. In the 1953-54 recession individual corporate and excise tax reductions Cost the government Kennedy figured about $7.4 billion in Revenue. That recession ended in August 1954. But Kennedy said it might have ended sooner if the cuts had been made sooner. There a no recession in sight now. Kennedy takes the position a tax Cut before there is a recession will help avoid it. The main protest of his opponents is that its poor Economy to reduce government Revenue through a tax Cut when government spending is out distancing government income. Gof asks for equal air time Washington apr president Kennedy has urged the peo pie to speak up in support of his tax reduction program. He said its benefits would Range from new washing machines for families to new strength around the world for the american Dollar and Freedom. A but that Bill is in danger of being weakened or deferred a declared Kennedy. A it needs your help your thus through a National radio and television speech the president sought to Light a grassroots fire under Congress on behalf of the $11-billion tax reduction a which he called the most important Domestic economic measure in 15 years. The first major hurdle will come next wednesday when the House is expected to vote on the tax program. But Kennedy was also looking toward the Senate where the Bill faces a Stormy time. Kennedy directed his Appeal All along the economic front from businessmen to factory workers from families watching their own shaky budgets to citizens worried Over the governments unbalanced budget. He asked for Quick passage of the Bill without a proposed Republican amendment tying tax cuts to curbs on spending. Almost As soon As Kennedy finished his address William e. Miller Republican National chairman fired off telegrams to the networks asking equal time to reply to the president.
