Senator Sees Threat Of Excess Power Is Off, Profits Tax Staying On Books JBy MARGARET CHASE SMITH (tl.;S, Senator-From Maine) "-. SKOWHEGAN, Me., Nov. 1.--I believe arr.excess profits tax Is fully Justified in time of war and it will'be justified to help financ'e our rearmament program. But, like so fnany laws, there are inevitable inequities and defects in.'an excess profits tax law. These must be cut to a minimum.. A careful study'of Use proposal must be made by eon- gress-before .acting on It · Caution must be taken to see that this tax be limited to recapturing extra profits realized by business from the , rearmament 'program. There must be restraint against ex- PUERTO EICO UPRISING -- Cross symbol locates Puerto Rico//where United States-hating Rationalists (Oct 30) launched a revolt in ten towns and cities.

Tax Collections · On Luxuries Dips PHOENIX, Nov. l..«V-A 'drop f 518,983.04 in luxury; tax. collec- ons for October has been report- d by the state tax commission. The' total for the : month was 317,523.42 while collections in eptember were $336,506.46. Howver, the amount is higher.' than the 5301,764.04 produced by the uxury revenue In October, 1949, last Berlin Catches Up With Sovietixation BERLIN, Nov. 3. (ff)--East Ber-| n-caught up with the Sovietiza- on program in East Germany..tc- ay. by a decree that can destroy rivate property rights at the gov- rnment's will. · The new measure empowers the ommunlst administration in the ussian sector of this divided city transfer private property "to a ilrd party without full compensation to the original oimer. A similar law, is already in force In the Soviet-sponsored East .German republic which surrounds Berlin. · The Russian sector decree plies to business houses,, land, vehicles, goods and virtually all other types of property. panding the tax. into the additional objective of cutting down profits that might arbitrarily be regarded as too high. ' ·Surely,- no one can argue about its' -justification' as a wartime 'or rearmament defense tax, regardless of now hard it may be to levy the tax fairly and.equitably. But the arbitrary determination of what constitutes "too high" profit would be nothJiiZ'less-than the in troductlon of profit limitation InU our tax system.- Perhaps the tax rearmamen should not be called, an "exces. I profits tax" but rather a "war prof its tax." In other, words, the tax must be kept to its original pur pose or objective -- that of tern porary and partial financing, of the emergency rearmament or uncle clared war -- and Us' rame should be such as to Seep us constantly aware of this. Has Two Objective? After all,, the proposed tax really has two main objectives. One is to finance partly the rearmament program. The other is to prevent profiteering out of the war or the rearmament program -- to take the profit out of'..war for everybody. . In 'the arguments for 'the enact' rnent of an excess profits law .we iear a great deal of talk about corporation ptofits having reached record levels. But it is equally true that wages 'have reached a record level--that national income has reached a record level. What is too often omitted to such talk is that -the high profits of cor- oorations have not been made on war contracts. . A fairer approach would seem to -be one through the renegotiation of contracts by which the government can review its war contracts and the profits reali2ed by corporations on those : contracts. If the 'profits are apparently exorbitant, then by a standard clause in the contracts the government can renegotiate the contract and cut down its payments to a corporation. This is fair .and equitable action In the interest of the gen-j eral taxpayer. Takes Time But ths renegotiation of contracts takes, time--time .for actual production and actual payments , and review of those'· payments. Uncle Sam needs the money now to finance .the rearmament program and the excess-profits -tax brings that money in more currently with the reed for .the money. The power to tax is the power to destroy. In Russia .they have aJOO per, cent tax. The more we Increase taxes here, the more, we tend to a This could lead toward the .Com- tha! it is a "war profits tax" In- stted of. the beginning; of a'perma- neht^limitation on business profits. Else we will'be, undermining the economic .system .that has. given us the highest standard -of living In the 'history o£"_the, world.- ' In seeking military .'security we- cannot, undermine "-our economic security. . -, i · · (Dist'd by United Feature's) Ohio State's- -yic Janowi.cz- had' a perfect-day against Pitt, completing be out of six passes for 151,yards.'

In · retaliation- for the-.refusal, of East German-· Communists to renew a contract for power sales to West'Berlin.

The generator'was expected .to supply the basis heeds of - t h e building Indefinitely, but economy on use of office lights -was ordered., . The radio's 60,000-watt transmitter, located just outside Berlin in the Soviet zone, was.unaffected-by the western action. .

But irked by Communist efforts.to squeeze West Berlin with a power shortage, the allies' approved last night's "cutoff In advance. ,, .
