re peal of the present corporate tax system which brings in almost a billion dollars a year and urged substitution of a drastic tax on un distributed corporation profits This levy designed to force bil lions of dollars into distribution among stockholders was estimated to yield roughly at Raise Extra Revenue Treasury experts said the new proposal would not only cover the taxes the president asked congress to repeal but would raise 000 a year additional for the farm program and the bonus This was the only permanent tax proposed The president also asked tem porary processing taxes and a
