Income Tax Reduction It now appears probable that Ontario county residents will share in an income tax reduction before the present session of Congress adjourns. President Truman's recommendation that the tax iof individuals be reduced $40 each seems to make some sort of a tax reduction Almost a certainty. The Republicans already had a tax reduction plan Iready. President Truman's sudden conversion to a ; tax' change apparently came as an effort by the administration to block the GOP plan. Under the Republican plan $5.6 billion dollars .would be cut from the federal revenue through a gen- jeraLtax reduction. Under President Truman's proposal a bit more than $3 billion would be cut from the tax v bill of individuals but an increased corporation tax would Quake it up. Federal income would remain about the same. With both parties agreeing that the individual taxpayers, at least, should have some tax relief, it would appear certain that some kind of a bill will finally be approved by both Congress and the president. For the ordinary tax-paying consumer, however, .any tax cut will be worthless unless some method is found to halt the rise in prices. Unless increased production or government action halts the spiral of inflation, any general tax cut is apt to boost prices still higher through a release of more purchasing power. A reduction in taxes might affect the economic picture in much the same way as another general .wage increase would.

A reduction in governmental expenditures might help make a general tax cut effective. Lower federal expenses do not, however, seem to be very probable in view of the demands for foreign aid. It's a knotty problem and both Congress and the president would do well to forget that 1948 is an election year. Cooperation would be more beneficial to the country than political competition.

This is an unprecedented figure. In six months the Treasury has actually rolled up a surplus half again as large as the largest surplus ever previously recorded for a full fiscal year in the whole history of the country. The previous all-time high, $1,555,000,000, was achieved in 1927, in the fabulous days of the Coolidge Administration. There is no mystery about the primary causes of the present record-breaking surplus. Those causes are terrifically high tax rates, imposed on an immensely high level of business activity. During the first half of the current fiscal year Treasury receipts from all sources have amounted to more than $19,000,000,000. If Mr. Coolrdge's Administration had had the same fat income, and if its expenditures had remained what they actually were, the Treasury's surplus for the first half of the fiscal year 1027 would have been something like $17,000,000,000--instead of the present figure of less than one-tenth that sum. What has happened, of course, is that expenditures as well as receipts, have risen enormously since 1927. To a very large extent this is the direct and inevitable eonseouence of the Second World War. But even if i we deduct the main "war items"--the present cost of interest on the wartime-contracted debt, the present cost of national security in a troubled post-war world, the present cost of veterans' relief and the present cost of the post war loan to hard-pressed Britain-and even if we further deduct the present cost of the : Social Security System, which was established since; the Coolidge days--the fact remains that the Truman | Administration is spending considerably more than \ twice as much in the first half of fiscal 1947-48 as' the Coolidge Administration spent altogether in the j - first half of fiscal 1926-27. There ought to be room j for some economy in these figures. ' Looking Backward I n t e r e s t in; 1 , i t e m s t a k e n f r o m t h e f i l e ; i-.' l i i e D a i l y!;ei- I' 1 .
