final OK soon LBJ scores big victory WASHINGTON AP The Senate Finance Committee aims to complete work and vote final approval Thursday of the billion tax cut bill De bate by the full Senate would begin next week President Johnson has urged quick passage of the measure saying it will help rocket the economy to record heights this year The committee vaulted a high hurdle Wednesday approving unanimously the rate reduc tions for individuals that had been written in the bill origi nally passed by the House The senators4 made only one change They adopted Presi dent Johnsons proposal to put the new 14 per cent withholding rate into effect as soon as the measure becomes law The House version which contemplated enactment in 1963 would have dropped the withholding rate from 18 per cent to 15 per cent in 1964 and then to 14 per cent in 1965 After it became obvious that reductions could not become legally effective until perhaps March Johnson asked that the twostep drop in the withhold ing rate be junked and the 14 per cent rate be established im mediately The total cut for individuals is estimated at billion when the measure takes full effect The individual rate cuts in the bill

cuts would be effective for 1964 with the reductions made retroac tive to Jan 1 and onethird in 1965 A new range of 14 to 70 per cent would be substituted for the 20 to 91 per cent rates of present
