A K I S A L L NORTH IOWANS N E I G H I 0 R S Tea CITY IOWA TUESDAY AUGUST 12 1951 HOME EDITION This Paper Consists of Two Oat President to Address UN Assembly Senate Excise Tax Bill Debated WASHINGTON Senate Tuesday rejected 5139 a move to cut the 20 per cent cabaret tax to 10 per cent Sens George W Malone R and Alan Bible DNev of fered the proposalas an amend ment to an excise tax bill that had kept the Senate working un til close to midnight Monday and put the upper house behind its schedule for adjournment this weekend Chairman Harry F Byrd D Va of the Senate Finance Com mittee saidthe amendment would cost the Treasury 20 million dol lars a year The 20 per cent levy brings about 40 million annually There are many federal ex cises just as burdensome or more burdensome than this one jByrd asserted Senators Monday managed to dispose of the controversial whis ky and oilgas depletion allow ance amendments In acting on the excise bill the Senate defeated 5129an attempt to strike out the Housepassed a provision benefiting whisky distillers THIS PROVISION would per mit a distiller to hold his product in bond up 16 20 years without paying the a gallon tax instead ofeight yearsas at pres ent The Senate vole came despite an attack on by Chairman Harry DVa of the Finance Committee He de nounced it as a windfall running to many millions of dollars and declared am certainly not willing give tax relief to any whisky distillers when we are denying tax relief to other tax payers Advocates of this section said it would not cost the Treasury any thing because distillers with big stocks of whisky approaching the eightyear mark could not afford to pay the tax on it anyway They saidsome distillers would have to pour their product down a sewer to avoid paying the tax if they could not dispose of it by any other method THE HOUSE provision retained in the bill applies the 20year rule to existing stocks as well as future production The unsuccessful effort to cut the per cent oil and gas de pletion allowance was a renewal of an old fight but proponents of the reduction got more votes than in other recent tests The allowance under tax law is for depletion of capital resources is the oil and gas under ground Senators seeking to cut the al lowance said it was an unjustified tax benefit for oil interests Oil state senators argued the benefit was necessary to keep explora tion for new sources at a high rate DURING A SESSION Monday lasting 13 hours the Senate also 1 Passed and sent to the White House a compromise bill to ex tend the reciprocal trade pro gram for four more years with authority for the President to cut tariffs up to 20 per in exchange for similar concessions from other nations 2 Passed and sent to the House a compromise bill to set up a new independent federal aviation agency designed to improve air safety procedures The House may complete congressional ac tion on this bill today The Senate Labor Committee approved a bitterly disputed
