TWBLVB (AKK.) COUK1ER NfcJW* MONDAY, DECEMBM < Truman Asks Gl Educational Aid for Korean Veterans Obituaries WASHINGTON, Dee. 4. (/P)—Con-. KWMional leaders quoted president Truman today as saying lie wants veterans of the Korean have the "GI educational aid" that Vat given veterans of World War 11. After a White House conference, mouse Speaker Bayburn (D-Tex) »lso said Mr. Truman had urged »ct<on on legislation to: 1. Create a civil defense admin- Sftration. 3. Provide federal aid, for training ot additional medical men. Mr. Truman signed an order last week to establish a Civil Defense Administration and appointed Oov. Millnrd Caldwell of Florida to head It. But the administration wants legislation to give the administrator much broader powers than Mr. Truman can give It by executive order. - The educational benefits Mr. Truman proposes for Korean veterans allowed the veterans of World War II to return to school with tuition and basic costs paid by the government. For the moment, congressional attention was centered on a $3.400,000,000 tax bill and a measure appropriating $17, for the military forces and the atomic energy prog mm. The $3,400,000,000 excess proms lax measure conies before the House today for two days of debate and passage expected tomorrow or Wednesday. It fs the second step in a sharp upward revision of the federal tax structure made necessary by heavy outlays for national defense. The first step was taken by Congress last September when It Increased income taxes. It may boost them again next year and also slap on some excise, or sales, taxes and 'increase corporation levies. . The current House bill would Impose a tax of 75 per cent on excess business profits. Excess profits are Refined as those more than 85 per cent above the average of the best three years a taxpayer had from 1946 through 1940. The first 85 per .cent would be taxed at the present rates of corporate Income tax, minimum of 45 per cent. COP'S Don't J,lke Bill Republicans don't like the new bill. Their opposition was responsible In part for trimming down the $4,000,000,000 measure requested by the administration. The administration wanted a 75 per cent tax on corporate profits in' excess of 75 per cent of the 1946-1949 average. The Dill allows' several alternatives but they are expected to be used but little. , ' Yugostar Aid Backed WASHINGTON, Dec. 4.
