(AP) —The Senate Finance Committee today began Ha closed-door study of the $7,200,000,000 tax bill with a briefing on alternative methods of hiking persona) income taxes. Chairman George (D-Ga) report- maining <d afterward that no decisions were ly and reached. He satd it would be several days before the 13 senators get down to voting on changes in the bill which the House already has passed. Many committee members have indicated the total of new revenue in the House measure probably will be reduced. These same sources, however, expect the Senate to go along with the $2.850,000,000 increase In Individual Income levies voted by the House but fo adopt a different method of getting the money. Several senators have shown a preference for a plan which would concentrate more of the increases in lower income brackets. Experts from the treasury and the 7 staff of the Joint Congressional Co turn ittee on Ta x a lion me t with the Finance Committee at ils first executive session on the bill today. bill is on the "must" list ed by the democratic leadership for action before Congress quits this year. Chairman George fD-Ga) of the committee told newsmen he expects the 13 senators to finish writing their version within two weeks—by Aug. 24 or 25, It will take another week for the committee staff and treasury to write a report on the measure, he said. George predicted the bill will reach the Senate floor shortly after Labor Day. Sentiment Is Small There appeared to be little or no - sentiment for increasing the tax hike to the $10,000.000.000 asked by President Truman. Estimates by committee members on the amount their group would approve ranged " from $5,000,000,000 up to the amount set by the House. One Republican member, who asked not to be identified by name. told newsmen he was sure the group would throw out the House's method of raising individual income • taxes.

Some lawmakers favor this as an anti-inflationary measure on the ground the bulk of the spending is in these brackets. ' Senator Humphrey (D-Minnl. however, said in a statement sent to the committee that the House plan for raising personal income taxes was "pemaps the most equitable feature of the entire bill." "A Call for the Rich". It "calls for the rich to make a real contribution to the defense effort." he said, but cannot be labeled confiscatory since a person with $100.000 income would have $41,600 appropriation bills sharp' the House figure proves enough, the loophole-closing gains could be used to soften Increases in the personal and corporation rates, he said.

The leaders o! the Communist Taft to Back Big Air Force, Oppose Army-Navy Hike WASHINGTON, Aug. 13. (AP)-Scnator Taft (R-Ohio) said today- he will support an increase in the Air Force but will oppose any equivalent boost in the size of the Army and Navy. Taft, who heads the Senate Republican Policy Committee, told a reporter he is concerned about reports that military leaders may ask Congress for an additional $20,000,000,000 or more appropriations later In the year. "If that comes along, it will mean that we are headed toward a $100,000.000,000 budget with deficits running nbont $25.000.000,000 a year and I don't think we can stand such deficits," he said. Taft, long an airpower advocate, said he believes a "reasonable" expansion in the Air Force in the long run would give the country better defense at cheaper cost than an '-It even under the House bill. __ Humphrey urged the senators to 'close tax loopholes through which he said about 54,500,000,000 in revenue now escapes.

British t* Talk Tonight The British proposal was scheduled to be presented tonight by Richard stokes, chief of the British delegation. Stokes saw the Shah for a half hour this morning, and Ls believed to have outlined his proposal and appealed for the Shah's support. Kazem Hagsibi, undersecrtary of finance and adviser to the Iran- negotiating team, told reporters: "in view of our talks In the :irst four meetings with the Brit- sh, it is very difficult to be optimistic that their proposals will neet a satisfactory response from •he Iranian government." Crux of Dispute The crux of the dispute Is this: >Vho shall have actual control of •he refinery and the oilfields! The British said they are willing to accept the principle of nationalization, but informed sources reported lhat their proposal, not yet made public, insists upon continuing British management of production. over-all expansion of the military branches. Group to Call JCS Senator Ferguson (R-Mich) said an appropriations subcommittee, of which he is a member, is going to call in the chiefs of staff and find out whether any more fund requests are in sight before it acts • on a pending military money bill. The Air Force was allowed $19,854.000,000. the Army $20,125,000,000 and the Navy $15.552.000,000 In $56,000.000,000 appropriations measure approved by the House last week. Ferguson predicted the Senate committee won't be able to make "any big reduction" in these amounts because of cost increases. He said, as an example, that tanks now cost four times what they did in World War JI, only partly because they are much better tanks. Vlnson Asks Kg Air Force Chairman Vinson (D-Ga) of the House Armed Services Committee has come out for a 163-wing Air Force, compared with the present 87 wings and a goal of 95 groups by next July 1. In the past, Gen. Omar Bradley chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and other military men have contended that the Army arid Navy nust be iricreased whenever the Air Force is boosted in order to keep balanced defense team In action. Taft said if the Air Force is to be expanded greatly he doesn't believe he Army and Navy can keep pace without overloading the. country's budget.

At once youngsters resumed their secret invasion of West Berlin with its capitalistic lures. One special attraction was the opening today of an Arnerlcan television exhibit Something new even for west Berliners. the television shows in color and in black-and-white obviously amazed the iron curtain youngsters.

Communist managers were keeping It going with "cultural programs' ranging all the way from concerts lo circuses, but many Red youngsters preferred to gaze Into, the wel stocked shop windows and taste the forbidden deliciousness of free nreals being dealt out in West Berlin.

"I can agree with the general that the free world has a great perpond- erance of material, Intellectual, spir- tual technical and professional resources," Hunt said, "but I hope :hat doesn't lull us into a peaceful sleep we were enjoying before the Korean War started." Eisenhower's views were in a sub- :ommittee report prepared for the Senate Foreign Relations and Armed Services Committees. These groups are meeting jointly to consider the administration's $8,500,000.000 foreign aid'bill. Nine Make Report The subcommittee, including nine members who visited Europe in July, reported that Eisenhower had told them: "The material, intellectual, spir- lual, technical and professional resources available to the free world are so overwhelming as compared with what the iron curtain and sat- tellile countries have that it is almost ridiculous for us to be talking terms of fright and ro'-sterla, which we often do." The report said Eisenhower acknowledged the Soviet bloc has a unity lacked by the North Atlantic Treaty nations but said it was brought about "by a gun and sword held forever behind a man's back ready to chop off his head.
