THOMPSON Unl/ed Pr*«s Staff Correspondent WASHINO/TON, /April 14—(U.R>— The new tax bill, many .times re vised by the Senate before it was passed last night, was submitted to President Roosevelt today before the House had been given he opportunity of considering the Senate .amendments. The proced* tire won considered unusual. The $500,000,00 measure, with higher'taxes on large incomes and lower taxes on small incomes, has now passed both houses. It provides for publicity on tax returns and for heavy levies on inheritances. Usually after the Senate adopts i tax •bill it goes back to the House, but the present bill will not go back until Mr.' Roosevelt has given his opinion on changes oiiginated by Republican independent Senators which almost doubled the amount of potential revenue asked by the administra- Uon. n j Only Seven "No" Votes Capital tax experts estimated i hat the bill in the format passed i lie Senate, after nearly two weeks u\ raiding'by the liberal group In- lent upon bigher taxation, would bring $488,000,000 in new revenue. The House bill provided for $25a,000,000 in. new federal . in- Only seven votes were cast j^aiitot the measure—all by Republicans. • Principal features of the Beftate •.ax bill: It imposes a blanket 10 per cent recovery tax" Increase for one vcav on all income taxes. Even with this increase the income tax riu'es are below present levies except in the' higher brackets.- Increased taxes' were voted tin large inheritances. Surtax rates uere Increased.

Aboard the Bxllona, Insull went to the captain's cabin. He chatted smUlngly with *he friendly and handsome young captain, Hazel, inquiring the size and accommodation of the ship, learning it had a sport deck and a swimming pool. Insull retired to his well furnished, comfortable cabin No. ff; adjoining Berry's No. 4. A member of the Exllona's crew Stood guard at Insult's cabin door throughout the night.
