WASHINGTON, juiy 17. (U.P.) — The White House said today President Truman's second tax bill veto rlefinitely will be tiout to Cupitol Hill tomorrow, and Speaker Joseph W. Martin, Jr., predicted the House would override the veto within two hours. That would leave the matter up lo the Senate, where Republicans seem to be at least two votes shy of the necessary two-thirds majority to override the veto. Barring a serious an unexpected shift, that would I among Ihe kill the bill and end all hops of I known tax reduction at this session. The bill would reduce < personal income laxes from 1C-.5 lo 30 per cent effective Jan. l President Truman previously vetoed an identical bill which would have been effective last July 1, and the House sustained him. Earlier Martin had expressed tho hope that Mr. Truman would change his mind at the last minute and allow the revised tax reduction bill to . become law. He said Congress had twice demon- 1 strated overwhelmingly its desire for ihc vax bill. Rep. Thomas A. Jenkins, R., o., said that since Mr. Truman felt the Republicans wanted the "'wrong kind" of a cut at the "wrong time." lie should give Congress his views on the "proper way'' and the "proper time." Snyder Comments As if in reply, Secretary or the Treasury John w. Snyder said the administration might be able to decide in the next few months whether to start plugging its own "right kind" of income tax cut plan. He^dechned, however, to ..peculate on what it would involve o" just when it would be ready. "We have got to see thai the economy is settled down tu some degree -before we can make any decision," Snyder told.a-,ncw.s, con- 'ference.'"In'the neW few month, the answer should Ijc available to us to measure the propriety at fax adjustment." The GOP outlook' for overriding the promised veto wxs just gloomy as :t was after the Senate passed the tax bill by a majority two votes short of the two-thirds necessary to enact the bill over presidential objections.

(U.P.I —House Republicans charged today that President Truman was responsible for any delay in the flood control program. Thoy said that last January he ordered Army Engineers to withhold requests lor any projects. The crarges were made by Reps. Frederick A. Muhlcnucrg, Pa., and A. L. Miller, Nell. Both contended that tlie President's message n« 5MO.OCO.000 to launch a 10-year Mississippi Basin flood control program represented reversal" of Mr. Truman's January position. Mr. Truman's program nppeated to he headed for a congressional pigeonhole, nt least for this sea- ion. But nl least one prominent House Republican—Rep. Francis P. Case S. D.—thought Congress ought lo act now. Case told the House that Congress "should address itself al once to this question of flood control." "If it wants to," lie said, "the House can face the issues al this session." Though many Democrats am Republicans acclaimed thc President's master plan for the Mississippi River and its major tributaries, there was little disposition to rush through the huge appio- printlon in thc remaining eight working days of HID current ues- sion.
