WEDNESDAY, JUNE 7, 1950 BI.YTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NKWS House Plans to End Excise Tax Cut Bill Wrangle by July 1 WASHINGTON, June 7. Hop, Doushton (D-NC) set a July 1 &rget today for the House to toss fp 1 vcto-thvcatcncd SI, 100.000.000 excise tax slashing bill into the lap of the Senate. But the outlook for any bill at all this year Is dreary. Doughton's tax-framing House Ways and Means Committee stamped its final approval yesterday on excise cuts estimated at almost double the $655,000.000 limit Pvcsl dent Tinman proposed. It ts balk- j ing at the idea of accepting the j President's proposal for an extra : $650,000,000 tax on corporations. Excise cuts would cover, jcwlry, pockctbooks, movie tickets and scores of other Hems. Nothing Certain "Thcvc is nothing certain about, what we will do or when," Dough- told newsmen, "but l would hope and expect we can get a bill over there (to the Senate) by July' 1." This was Dowghton's brief answer to a statement by Senate Democratic leader Lucas, of Illinois, that Congress may vote no tax reductions this year unless It accepts the unlikely prospect of working until October—since, Lucas said, it Is doubtful the House will act on the bill by July 1. f£ GOP Wants Chance *^3t<\ators Wherry of Nebraska, the GOP floor leader, and Tafi of Ohio, chairman of the Senate GOP policy committee, made it clear however, that they and other Republicans want a chance to register their views on excise slashes. Wherry told reporters be regards tax reduction legislation as a "must." Taft said he thinks almost nil of the Republicans will suppor excise cuts, although he added he doesn't believe they should go a: high as the House committee. Course Is Difficult Chairman George (D-Ga) of the Senate Finance Committee said he will try to get a bill through the Senate If the House acts before July 1, He added it would be difficult and probably would take all of August, at least. Mr. Truman has promised to veto any bill that reduces excises and fails to make up the lost revenue — by higher taxes In other directions. T h e House committee is about SBOO.COQ.OQOO short of finding new revenue to match Its proposed ?!,100,000,000 excise reduction. Hominatlons Are Postponed By State GOP's LITTLE ROCK. June 7. (AP> — Arkansas Republicans won't name heir candidates for the state gen oral election until Aug. 15. The state convention — whicl customarily names the candidate-;— vcslcrday conferred that aulhorit) on the smaller state committee. The committee's meeting date o Aug. 15 Ls after the second Demo cratic primary. There was no statement as U> why that particular dale was clics- en. But some observers speculated that identity of the Democratic nominee for governor might be in a factor the Republicans wanted to consider Jn naming their candidate, Harold E. Slas-sen, lonner governor o! Minnesota and unsucct&stul candidate for the 1943 Republican Presidential nomination, in the main convention speech Invited Southerners who have "become dissatisfied with the Truman administration" to join the Republican Party. But he was quick to add he wasn't advocating a coalition of Republicans and States Rights Democrats. He was just inviting the State. 1 Right ers to become Republicans "I they think like we do - and mast of them do/' HOME, SWEET HOM E—Crewmen of the USS Midway line Us decks In greet relatives on Norfolk, Va., pier as the carrier returns from a five-month cruise in Mediterranean.
