COURIER NEWS PAGE FIW Fulbright Hopes For Tax Repealer Arkansas Senator Says Margarine Levy fa May Be Eliminated WASHINGTON, April 6— lift— House passage of the Poage mars- arinc bill by a substantial inargii was called "\.ry cncouraRins" b> Senator Fulbriglit (D-Arkl. who also favors repeal of the fcdcra • margarine taxes. . Since House passage came early ill the session, Fulbrisht said, the Senate also has time lo act. "We had votes to pass the bill last year hut due to the long clelaj in Ihe House, we did not have time to act," Fulbright said in a statement. Fulbrleht said the Poage bill is Identical lo one he has introduced and it "takes care of every legitimate objection of the dairy industrj to the sale of yellow margarine which consumers want and shoitlc be permitted to buy without paying a punitive las." One requirement Is that when | colored margarine Is served in public eating places it must be cut in triangular shape. "Of course," Fulbright said, "the bill does not satisfy the butter lobby. Thcv would 'compromise' by repealing the lax in order lo ban the object. ^fe "Discriminatory taxation of one • 'product for the benefit of another is bad enough, but to forbid commerce in It is a new extreme." The Poage bill would repeal federal taxes on margarine. It was passed by the House as a substitute for another bill which would have repealed the tax but banned interstate transportation of yellow margarine.
