Congress was offered another comprehensive plan, Wednesday, for one Of its biggest 1945 problems, the drafting of a tax law for the postwar period. The new proposal came from the research committee of the Committee for Economic Development, which j suggested a tax structure calculated, to raise between $17.100,000,'000 and $19,500,000.000 after the war. I While the CED plan would cut all wartime levies, It would offer tin 1 greatest proportionate reductions t» the lowest bracket taxpayer, who would be relieved of the present three per cent normal tax. and to the upi^r bracket income recipients and the 1 corpora t ions. The plnn would reduce personal trixi-s on •< net income of $2000 (after deductions but before exemptions) fur a couple with two dependents from 'he present levy of $45 to nothing, on $4»dO from $505 to $3fiO, on 510000 from $-LM~> to $1800 nnd on jl.noo.000 from $900.000 to $597,070. The CKD proposal was the third postwar tax plan offered by a busl- n".«s group this summer. The first u:is the "Twin Cities plan" drafted In- a group of Minneapolis and St. Paul businessmen and the second «.•!•; prepared by Ticardsley Kuml rinil Huns Sonne for the National Planning Association.

A menage in fhe public interest from 121 Twenty-sixth Street, Bakersflelcl, California PEARL HARBOR FACTS DEMANDED SCOTT RENEWS ATTACK ON PACIFIC POLICY WASHINGTON', Sept. 7. t/P>—A new demand for the "full story" of the attack on 1'earl Harbor by the Japanese was voiced in the Jlouse Wednesday by Representative Hugh D. Scott R-Pa.). Scott declared that naval officers told him the concentration of ships at Hawaii shortly before the disaster was "greater than any concentration they had over known." 'T)i<l not Admiral James O. Richardson . . . demur to a suggestion . . . by the President . . . that the fleet 1)0 kept in Pearl Harbor more often and particularly on week-ends as there had been complaints from Hawaii that the absence of the fleet was bad for business?" Scott asked. "And was hr> not. then or shortly thereafter relieved nf his command by Admiral Kininu'I? Did not Admiral Kinimol comply with administration orders and keep the fleet in much more frequently?' 1 "Also, is it not a fact that in the summer of 1941, when the fleet was split in two and part of it was sent to the Atlantic by the order of the commander in chief . . . the Japanese government proceeded with the occupation of Indo-Phlna? "Did not Admiral Kimmel continually protest against the stripping of the Pacific fleet? Chester Huntly Speaker .at Gardner Cadet Graduation TAFT, Sept. 5.—"You are at the controls of the ship of civilization," declared Chester Huntly, noted CBS commentator and news analyst, to cadets of class 44-J, at the Gardner Field graduating exercises recently. Theme of Mr. Huntly's speech was irresponsibility. Exercises in the gymnasium followed and impressive outdoors military review on the parade grounds. Hunlty, introduced by Captain Theodore L. Hewitt, commandant of cadets, congratulated the cadets' for adjusting themselves successfully to a new life, and absorbing the information with which they have been bombarded .since their training began. Huntly then called the cadets' attention to their place in the postwar world. "This nation was born with a purpose," Huntly stated, "and that purpose, c.>ne in which it must persist, is to make men free. Freedom is not exclusive. It must include all mankind—groups, peoples, minorities—in social, economic and political matters." In his farewell speech to the graduating cadets, Lieutenant-Colonel II. Hcchtel, commanding officer of the field, declared that the cadets had learned the principles of basic flying and were fully prepared for further training in advanced. "I would like to think of your training as a hurdle race," illustrated Colonel Bechtel. "You have cleared the first two hurdles, primary and basic, don't stumble over your last hurdle, advanced training."

(Delayed) OR— Now that Marseille and Toulon are 200 miles behind the Allied vanguards, it may be disclosed how outnumbered French troops— forced to attack the fiercely defended seaport areas before they were ready— killed or captured 53,500 Germans in cleaning up the region at a cost of only 1000 casualties. Although half his forces were still not ashore, General Jean de I^attre. de Tussigny, commander of the French Army In southern France, brilliantly directed the attacks which made available badly needed harbors to supply forces driving north. In dolnsr so, he wrote off seven variously constituted enemy divisions rind four German generals. The original plan was to assault the port area six days after D-day, hut spies brought Information that the Germans had densely mined Toulon and Marseille and planned to destroy the cities and then take up defensive positions In forts outside the towns. General de Lattre de Tasslgny ordered an assault one day before schedule In order to cut off the German garrisons In both places and at nearby Hyeres before they could join other German forces. He issued the order despite the fact that he had only two battalions to each regiment and only two regiments to each division landed by that time. The strategy WHS to send combat teams between Hyeres and Toulon and between Marseille and Toulon and to encircle Marseille. He. planned . to attack llyeros t'rontally, since that town was easternmost of the three. It worked according to plan, but some of the most bitter fighting of • the whole campaign resulted. When the shooting stilled, 15,000 Germans were dead and 38,500 were in prison cases. The bold attack ahead of schedule caught only half the Germans ready in prepared positions for the six-day battle. _ M-G-M Player Denies Romance With Gable HOLLYWOOD, Sept. 7.
