Government's /ncome, Sliced By Tax Cut, to Hit 5-Year Low WASHINGTON, June 29 W>—The government's Income, dragged down by the 1948 Income tax cut and the recent economic downturn, will hit a five-year low for the 12-month period ending tomorrow. When returns are in for the 1949* fiscal year, revenue receipts will fall about a billion dollars—or a little more—below the 139.680,000,000 forecast by the administration last January, government elperts said today. Not since fiscal 1944 has the government's income dropped below 140.030,000.000, and not since the war ended has an administration revenue estimate been thrown short of the mark by a dip In the nation's economy. Tax Cut Chkf Cau<w A drop in collection of personal income taxes, resulting from the tax cU(, voted In the spring of 1S48, was the chief cause of the government's income decline. Another factor was worker layoffs in the recently weakened lahor market, reflected in decreasing receipts from withholding taxes. It appeared withholding receipt.

Compared with fiscal 1948. when higher tax rates were in effect mos of the year, current withholdin rates appeared to be off about $1, 500.000.000. Against this, the excise or sale collected by the federal governmen were running slightly above las year—the difference Is about $50, 000.000 — and only moderately — about $160.000.000-below the Jan uary estimate.

Big 3 Publishes Agreement on W. German Rule Council of Civilian High Commissioners May Reign al Bonn WASHINGTON, June 29. (AP) — The United Stales. Britain and France publisher! today their format agreement on three-power machinery to run Western Germany, beginning in mid-September. The agreement specifies that the top allied council, composed of the United States, British and French civilian high commissioners, will have, headquarters "at the sent of the German federal government" In a special area directly ruled by the high commissioners rather than In any zotie of occupation. Tlits means that the Western headquarters In Germany will be shifted next fall from strife-ridden Berlin. Presumably It will go to Bonn, which officials here snld will lie the seat of the projected new German government. "The Charter or the Allied High Commission for Germany" Is a detailed statement for the organization of the Western occupation authorities Into a single unit for the supervision of Western Germany under its new government. The principles controlling this new organization, were worked out In Washington In.st spring by Secretary of Stjile Acheson nnd Foreign Ministers Bevln of Britain anc SchutiiRn of fiance.

American officials sal this is expected by niUl-Septcmt«: following the August 14 election. Hits Proposed Defense Post WASHINGTON, June 29 (AP)—Herbert Hoover said today it would be "dangerous to Hie country" to create a chairman for the joint chiefs of staff of the armed scrvicrs as proposed by the Truman administration.

Under the plan, he chairman would act as chief military advisor to the President and the secretary of Defense.

He didn't have the authority to actually Impose coordination. 1 * Hoover said the commission on reorganization of the government, which he headed In t year, thought chairman for the Joint chiefs should net on' as a presiding ot- fEcer nnd opposed an office of the authority proposed In the legislation. "With snch rank and power, his voice to the country can over-ride the res|K)nslb]e civil officials," Hoover snlcl.

He. strongly endorsed a section of the bill which would place a single business mnnager over the money affairs of nil the armed forces.

Between the extremes are a large number believing an upturn will begin next spring. These views, and those of economists and others studying the scene, nre described In the following article, the last of three on the recession by Sam Dawson, Associated Press business news columnist.) Ry Sani Dawson NEW YORK, June 29. (ft*)— How do businessmen Ihemselves assess the present slump? How do their guesses on its probable length and depth stack up with those of economists and others publicly charged with telling us where we're heading? Guesses range all the way from saying well hit bottom before the end of this year to forecasts that we won't until the end of 1950, but average off somewhere about the time of the first robin—next February or March. But let's not forget those who still hold that Inflation can become a threat again soon. Here are the current opinions of a number of leaders in industrial and public life. You'll note that what they do has much to do with what they foresee. One of the most pessimistic Is the head of a construction materials company. He says we have about 18 months more of recession In store. He reflects, perhaps, the belief that the building industry will be one of the last to be hit by the piece-meal slump, and th« last to recover. On the other hand, the president of the. National Machine Tool Builders' Association thinks the worst is over, saying that first half orders In his industry already are averaging higher than in the last quarter nf 1918. Predictions In the steel industry have mostly set early 1950 for the turning point from their decline, now gathering speed. In the auto industry, unhurt as yet, we have the prediction of the president of General Motors that the "next GO to 90 days will be very Interesting In the history of our country." Others say the auto industry will be the last to feel recession, and that it will hurt them least and for the shortest time. Opinions of retailers, purchasing agents, and middlemen generally reflect their belief that prices haven't come down far enough yet. The slump Is only half over and more "realistic price adjustments" are due. says the chairman of the Business Survey Committee of the National Association of Purchasing Agents. That would give the slump about nine more months to run. But the general credit manager of the Commercial Credit Co. of Baltimore says prices wont reach bottom within the next year. And an economist for Macy's, New York department store, says It "may be six to 12 months before we attain a right degree of price balance along a broad economic front." As for the farm products used by Industry, chiefly fats and oils, the vice president of Archer- Danicis-Midland Co. of Minneapolis thinks the rest of the year will see continued "gradual selective" price cuts, but no further substantial and sustained reductions. One of the most catalogued predictions comes from an economist for the Bankers Trust Co. of New York. He sets the middle of 1950. one year from now, for the bottom of the slump. He thinks Industrial production will drop 20'per cent below its 194B peak, that wholesale prices will be 15 i«r cent lower than the peak, corporate profits from 30 to 50 per cent lower, and personal income 10 per cent down from Its December, 19M, high. The dean of the University of Chicago's School of Business says Industrial production »lll hit Its low by the end of this year and prices early In 1950. The slump, he cautions. Is International In scope. A Harvard Business School professor of marketing estimates we are from one-third to one- half way down the business slope. The International Statistical Bureau says the low point will come late this year or early in 1950, and thinks It will take each Industry an average of nine months to recover half of the ground It lost. But an economist close to the President is reported as thinking each Industry will need about a year to complete its own particular slide. Another government economist la quoted as believing that the next two months will show Just how big a slump we are headed Into. Official government account* are more circumspect. The Commerce Department contents itself with calling the whole thing a "downward drill." The commissioner of labor statistics counsels us to look upon the increase In unemployment this summer as a "temporary phenomenon and not a business depression." And Secretary of Commerce Charles Sawyer tells us In a radio debate this week that we are "still In an era of prosperity such as we have not enjoyed In our history." despite the declines !n business activity and resulting increased unemployment. Guesses as to unemployment range up to 614 million by September. It's over 3 million now. How about wages and salaries? The chairman of Consolidated Groceries says they'll probably slay where they are, and lhat other ways to cut costs must be found. The president of General Electric agrees that every effort should be made to keep them where they arc, but he also says they mustn't go any higher right now. And, finally, we have the assessment oi the whole thing by President Truman. He said last week: "Our economy Is very strong and American business Is In a healthy condition. We have come down from the perilous peaks of inflation and arc approaching a more normal level of economic activity." Officially, at least, he has not yet recognized the slump, tie still asks Congress for powers to meet the threat of another Inflationary rise. Most everyone else says President Truman is wrong. But wasn't it Just a year ago that everyone was saying the same thing about another one of his stubborn notions—that one about his being re-elected?
