Profits Tax Cuts *f ^ -* i V *» ' ' f - K ' Incentive; Growth x , By MARGAKKT CHASE (tr. S. Senator Prom Maine) - _ ( ?' SKOWHEGAN, Me,- Oct. 31. -There are" some good ·raiments *r an excess profits tax in finanong fc ; war ef- fort'or^rearmament program. But there are also,some-arai ments against juch n-tax. And very 'seldom does the gen : eral public hear, o**ee these arguments. I'd hke + - ««· TM a few of them just as I did the . arguments''for such a tax.'I think you can do a'tetter job--in terms of national security and public Interest--in making up your own mind rather than having someone else'try to boss yourjnlnd. Two principal reasons are given for the necessity of WgTier taxes In the rearmament program. One is to raise money for the program,' This Is so fundamental that no one ~wlll argue this point. The second reason is for Checking In- Juarez Mayor Begins Cleanup . AKEZ, Mexico, Oct. 31. (/P)-The new mayor of Juarez.promise'd that he would "moralize" Juarez and Institute a drive against "prostitution and vice." oci.uuu »cn;wi. TM -- v ^ He is.Victor Manuel Ortiz Goslhs- flation by reducing the amount 34j a De j lo i aSj chihuahua, cattle -- · - - - - - of money Inj^rculation -by taking a larger tax grab out of our pockets and pocketbooks, .It Is on this reasoning In support of an excess profits tax that you can get a spirited argument. It .must be admitted that^an excess profits tax, like any other tax, Is a brake on Inflation. -It helps our gbvernment t" better'-balance the national budget and*to .refrain that much from financing govern' ment expenditures-through borrowing and deficit financing. But It Is equally true that an excess profits toe tends to encourage waste and extravagance on the part of ;· the corporation; Profit Incentive Cat The profit incentive'Is cut. down because the profit Is cut down. When the profIt ^ incentivev is cut there Is less emphasis on paring expenses and working a little harder to.get-more for your efforts. One common result has been that cor ; keyed man. He was sworn In yesterday evening at the Juarez city hall. He was named to the post yes terday by the Chihuahua state legis :ature to replace Francisco Trlana who less than a year, after taking office, was relieved of th* job by virtue -of an indictment ion charges of '.'abuse of authority." The mayor's selection came after a political shakeup. that began last Thursday when Tplana was ar rested on a Juarez street and taken by state ^policemen to the peniten tiary In Chihuahua City'. Trlana was Indicted yesterday morning by the first penal court In the state capital on charges of levy ing tribute on vice and collecting illegal taxes on imports to Juarez He later'was released .under ":10,OOC pesos bond but must remain in Chihuahua City until legal proceed ings against him are completed. This is Ortiz' initial politlca venture. Although he plans to keep-the oli - - · " -·"- the ex and Antonio. Escobedo -- he said h u *.--p~" .^,, " ,,..--r .. anu Antoniu.iwjuuucuu -- nc BCUH j profits', wiH-partially offset the ex- plamledswe eping changes in' oth cess, profits tax .take irom -their ^nicical personnel. . business by Increasing their costs of ^operation-=-. by Increasing their expenses. . . . . . : They" hike wages and salaries. They hire more-people than-..they actually need/' They'make costly repairs .-on-,their-facilities.-* rThey charge a multitude of high-living luxuries-on the. part .of company executives" and owners ' to public relations costs, advertising and entertainment expense. These are nothing less than a tax dodge and In effect, actually are manipulated and cleverly devised tax exemptions. ' In short, excess-profits taxes les sen the incentive for .economy ahc efficiency. They, indirectly/ cause ' the passing on of unnecessary costs tc the consumer "public in the final price tags placed on a commodity Obviously, this-is inflationary anc defeats the anti-inflationary objective of the tax. . . No Fair Yardstick . Another argument advanced against an excess profits tax Is that It Is Impossible · to. formulate 'any fair standard of what constitutes "excess": in profits, for all -businesses, which vary so intfch. in Tricks Xgain Due Tonight After a hectic pre-Halloween'eve- ne of .tricks or treats Tucsonlans 111 welcome .the 'fifth annual ardl gras at the high school adiuiri .tonight' ^Apparently ,all v youngtters -who ould toddle/were out'last 1 -evening itivtho'r'terrlfylng masks', fright- nlng v ghost costumes, .and eerie ·witches brooms.- * - . , , . .After8pre-mardl gras whirl, the mall-fry-win test their costumes ut"on the Judges at the stadium Ma evening.
