Four Point program drafted for submission to legislators Washington May apr Tho Treasury was disclosed by Well informed legislators today to have drafted a comprehensive four Point program to eliminate taxes criticized As a business the lawmakers outlined the program As follows 1. Elimination of the present undistributed profits capital stocks and excess profits taxes. Substitution of a Flat rate corporation income Levy of not More than 22 per cent. 2. Reduction in higher bracket personal income taxes from a maximum of 75 per cent to a maximum of 6u per cent. 3. Authorization for corporations to carry Over tax credits for loaves for three years instead of one. 4. Modification of the capital gains tax in an Effort to encourage investment. The in Alator indicated that president Roosevelt had approved the entire program except the proposed reduction in upper level income tax Secretary Morgenthau probably will discuss that idea with him before talking to the hot e ways and Means committee next week.

Getting Down to cases certain predictions can be made about certain candidates and their chances of getting support from both Hoey and Graham factions. To begin with there in t even a ghost of a Chance that Sandy s Loyal hackers and friends will Ever work for any candidate handpicked and stage managed by Gardner. That was Kandy s basis for attack on Hoey in 1938 and. De spite Many statements he observer to the contrary it was an attack which made him thousands of vote Tat the expense of Ralph do Donald t. This go for Warren. In spite of the Washington legislator s w id spread personal popularity. It Hasni to been forgotten that he was the Gardner right hand Man before going to Congress. Johnson Oft another candidate whom Gra Hamiter will not unite with the Hoey men in supporting is state treasurer Charlie Johnson. There does t seem the slightest Chance that he will enter the lists but if he does he will do so with full knowledge that he Isnit the favorite with grahams followers and won t he. Commissioner of Revenue a. J. Maxwell would probably be acceptable to the Graham group but its members Are none too optimistic that a tax collector can be nominated for the governorship and that s without the slightest aspersion on the Maxwell ability to nuke an outstanding governor. If Ever Over the primary hurdles. Lee gravely of Rocky mount would get at least part of the Graham support of he should run but would tack a lot of getting All either of it or of the Hoey Camp. That leaves lieutenant governor Wilkins Horton As about the Only other Prospect who candidacy depends largely upon getting administration and Graham support. No mention has been made of j. M. Broughton and Wilmington s mayor Thomas e. Cooper and they have been left out of the discussion because of All those so far named they Are the Only ones who Are sure to run whether or not they get administration or Graham or any other particular group s support. Moth Are to All intent and purposes already Active. Working candidate who have definitely made up their minds to announce the Only question being a when a so Hack to Horton it seems entirely logical to regard him As the one candidate Likely to get the United support of a big majority of both Graham and Hoey leaders. In 1936 the Pittsboro Man was not in the least objectionable to Handy Graham. In fact it can he said that Graham and his lieutenant were far More Friendly to him before the first primary than Wert i amp an action Bill after the House ,000 the Treasury experts Hope that the program will result in no loss of Revenue. They have not yet determined exactly what the Flat rate tax on corporations with income of less than $25,-000 a year would be Given special favourable treatment. The present Law levied Flat rate taxes on corporations with incomes of less than $25,000. And imposes a tax ranging from 16 to 19 per cent on larger companies depending on the amount of profit turned Over to shareholders.
