Dewey Submits Tax Cut Plan Continued From Page One income levies must be lowered and the nation's tax structure simplified if the country Is to prosper in the postwar era. He said It was "far better" to have low taxes and a national income of $150,000,000,000, rather than high taxes and $76,000,000.000 national Income "as we had under the New Deal at Its peacetime best." The Roosevelt tax policies, he said, have discouraged business and hlch wages and were responsible for prolonging the depression. The "highest New Dealers," he continued, "at last admit that this administration hns created an impossible condition ! which urgently ne.eds repair." | The New York governor's program included: 1—Revision of personal income taxes "so that a man who makes as little as $11 a week no longer has an income tax taken out of his pay envelope." 2 — Lowering of personal income tax rates to "speed recovery along." 3—Revision and lowering of income taxes on incorporated businesses until the taxes "no longer acts as a drag upon production and a barrier to jobs." 4—Elimination of all so-called excise or "nuisance" taxes excepting those on alcoholic beverages, tobacco and gasoline. 0— Complete overhauling of our "existing, confused and complicated tax laws." 6 — Establishment of a "consistent, national tax policy—one directed toward achieving full employment and a rising national Income—one that will assure use of a solvent nation and the ultimate reduction of our national debt." !

They also cut a railroad north of Aachen. Some 20,000 civilians were being evacuated from beleaguered Dunkerque under a 48-hour truce arranged by the Canadian and German command. The evacuation was believed preliminary to n. final assault on the last German-held port on the French channel coast. The Allied line between Antwerp and Eindhoven swung steadily northward beyond the Antwerp-Turnhout canal and the Dutch frontier. Immediately northeast of Antwerp, the Canadians held Merxem while the Germans clung to Schootcn, the next suburb beyond. The fall of Fort Driant, 5 miles southwest of Mptss, was announced by supreme headquarters at noon (C a. m. K. W. T.) after front dispatches timed less than two hours earlier said shock troops from , Lieutenant- General George S. Pulton's Third Army were storming the main inner fortifications of the citadel. It was the first time since the Huns sacked Motz in 1451 that nny of that city' defenses have been taken by storm. Fort Driant was one of the most Important cogs in the enemy's chain of forts on the west hank of the Moselle and its capture was expected to speed the fall of Metz' other defenses, opening the gates to the Saar. Supreme headquarters said merely that Fort Driant had been captured and held and gave no clue as to the fate of the garrison, hut it was presumed a large number of prisoners was taken. Ijieutcnant-General Courtney II. [lodges' American First Army jumped off on the third day of its offensive some 10 miles north of Aachen at dawn, favored by cloudless skies that permitted hundreds of medium and dive bombers to pound the defenses in close support of the advancing doughboys. Completely through the concrete defenses of the Siegfried Line following the capture of Ubach, the Americans lunged against barbed wire entanglements, trenches, hastily improvised forts and other strong points stretching 30-odd miles east to Cologne, capital of Germany's industrial Rhineland. German troops also were laying down a murderous crossfire with rifles and machineguns from foxholes speckling open fields, but many came to grief at the point of bayonets wielded by doughboys who charged forward under close air and artillery support. Supreme headquarters reported in its daily communique that the Americans were advancing slowly both in the Ubach area and to the southwest. The Germans counterattacked with flame throwers and multi-bar- reled mortars during ttie night in the IThach area and In the wooded area due east of Aachen In an attempt to wipe out the breaches In the Siegfried Line, but everywhere j were thrown back. The counterattack at L'bach was repulsed In one | hour. The First Army captured 42G prisoners yesterday, bringing its total since D-Day to 186,514. Some 54 miles north of Aachen, other First Army troops killed half the enemy force in repulsing a counterattack in the Overloon area. The British Second Army broadened the northern tip of its salient in the Rhineland to 17 miles with the capture of Wamcl, on the south bank of the Rhine, 17 miles west northwest of Nijmegen, and Dreumel, 2"2 miles southwest of Waniel. Canadian forces at the base of the German sack looping southwestward to the Schelde estuary above Antwerp pushed 8 miles north of Turnhout to capture Baarle Nassau and prepared to clear the estuary itself in the wake of the Roynl Air Force's dam-smashing attack on the Dutch island of Walcheren. Reconnaissance photographs taken one hour after British Lancasters smashed the great dike protecting the island yesterday showed that a gap of at least 120 yards had been torn in the seawall, flooding an area at least 1000 yards long and 700 yards wide that had been heavily defended by the Germans. Clearing the estuary will permit the Allies to use the big port of Antwerp, already In Allied hands. The,r Germans apparently not only were reconciled to the loss of the Sehcldo estuary, however, but also have he- gun demolitions In the Dutch harbor, of Rotterdam, some 50 miles further north. Canadian forces also were preparing to storm Dunktrque, last French chanrel port still in German ha'nds. A front dispatch said a 4S-hour truce for the evacuation of civilians—usual preliminary to a grand assault—had begun at Dunkerque at 6 a. rn. (1 a. in. eastern war time) today. United Press War Correspondent Robert Richards with the American Third Army reported that doughboys were pouring hot oil Into gun and ventilation apertures td reduce the inner defenses of Fort Driant. The oil burst into flame as it flowed into the interior, searing and choking the defenders. The Americans also dropped grenades and other explosives 'Into the gun slits. The attackers broke into the fort yesteiday behind tanks which blasted a path up to its wall through masses of barbed wire entanglements 40 feet in depth. Hand-to-hand fighting raged inside the fortress perimeter and all but the main fortress had been reduced b.v dawn today. That apparently fell during the morning.
