FACE TWBLVfc SlYTHJEVUXE (AJU.) COURIB* NttWft MONDAY, APRIL 94, 1MW House Group Renews Study for Reducing of Federal Excise Taxes WASHINGTON, April M (/P5— * Tbe House Ways and Means Com- mfttM reconvene* today to determine how much' tt wants to cut federal taxes on movie tickets, tele- pones, telegrams, travel tickets and niany more items, teclse tax cut* ilready approved bjr the committee are almost twice M deep as Mr. Truman asked for that part of the list covered to date. The committee may risk a veto by calling for overall excise slashes of about $1,000,000,000 — way beyond the «55,000,000 «et by the President. Mr. Truman has threatened a veto if Congress sends him a bill that falls to regain the excise reductions by larger levies elsewhere. i Revenue Increase He proposed, In addition to covering this loss, a net $1,000,000,000 Increase Jn revenue by more taxes oh corporations, Inheritances and big gifts, and by closing tax law loopholes. However, It is doubtful that the committee will find more than enough to offset the excise cuts—If that much. Chairman Doughlon (D-NC) explained that all action now Is tentative and could be changed later. . In Its frist tentative actions last week the committee approved; Furs — a cut from 20 per cent *o 10 per cent retail sale. Jewelry — A cut from 20 per cent at retail to 10 per cent, with watches selling at less than $65 and alarm clocks retailing below $5 tax- free. Luggage Tax Removed Luggage — complete removal of the : 20 per cent levy on handlxigs, purses, wallets, billfolds, pocketbooks and card and key cases. The 20 per cent impost would be retained on other luggage classifications such as trunks, suitcases and brief cases. ' ' ' Toilet preparations ;— an end to the.M per cent tax on baby powder, oils and lotions, and a cut' from 20 .per cent to 10 In the tax on other toilet' preparations such as cosmetics and shaving lotion. Sporting goods — repeal of the 10 per cent manufacturers' tax cm toy sizes and goods predominantly., used by schools. This means, If; the bill becomes law, the tax would not be collected—regardless whether used In schools or by professional teams—on such things as baseballs, basketballs, footballs and football equipment, push balls and akatw. The tax woud continue on golf'and fishing rigging and many other sporting items. > • Repeal of Tar Electric, gas and oil appliances — repeal of the 10 per cent tax on cookstoves and household water heaters, on non-household electric fans, electric heating pads and blankets and irons. The 10 per cent levy on many electric, gas and 011 appliances would be retained. Refrigerators — on the household type the manufacturers' tax would be reduced from 10 per cent to 7. Home freezers would be added to the excise tax list for the first time, at 7 per cent. Light bulbs — removal of the 20 per cent manufacturers' excises completely. The committee decided to keep the manufacturers' excise on autos, motorcycles, buses, truck tractors, parts and accessories, tires and tubes; on business machines, such as typewriters and adding machines; on lubricating oil, matches and commercial refrigerating apparatus and all air conditioning equipment.
