WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28, 1D68 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREW Hopes for Income Tax Cut in 1956 Growing Slimmer By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP) — Tax cut hopes are dimming after starting the year so bright. Congress this week voted to continue the high excise tax rates and corporate income tax rates for another year. Word from Washington now is that a cut in individual income tax rates—once considered a cinch in an election year—has but a , 50-50 chance. The Tax Foundation, a private research organization, tackles that vague being, "the average man," today and figures he spends l'/ 2 days of his work weekjo pay the cost of government. Big: Savings The proposed cut in excise taxes would have saved American taxpayers more than one billion dollars a. year. The federal_excise, OIL sales, tax is paid on such things as gasoline, cigarettes, liquor, au-| , tomobiles, trucks, buses, trailers j and auto parts. j The proposed cut in corporate! income taxes — which will die I when the President signs the bill, I as he's supposed to this week —! would have saved U.S. corpora- I tions two billion dollars a year. : Consumer Pays ' i You may not be greatly moved personally by this b'it of hard luck Grateful Skunk Spares Rescuer PORT PIERCE, Fla. OK—Wayne Miller, director of the St.. Lucie County insect control program, saved the life of a skunk yesterday —and got away with it. Miller was at the airport getting ready for a day's warfare on insects when he heard a clanking on a nearby runway. It was a skunk with his head stuck in a dog food can. I A nice problem, thought Miller. ' If I try to help him, will he know j it's a friend? Miller put his foot on the can tnd the skunk hacked out, freed. "Then we looked each.other in the eye," Miller said. "The skunk made a threatening gesture. I tipped my hat and slowly walked away —• well, as a matter of fact, I was running.'" for the corporations. But remember that a corporation sets the price of its products or its services high enough to pay its taxes. And in the long run the consumer pays the corporate tax. The reason Congress continued for another year the high tax rates first adopted as a Korean War emergency measure and the reason it may continue the high rate you pay on your individual income — is that the cost of government is turning out to be higher this year than was first counted on, and bids fair to be still higher next year. The U.S. Treasury is going to need that three "billion Name Has Candidate on the Spot LO6 ANGELES (fl — Two weeks ago Roy R. C. .Sanderson petitioned the Superior Court to make hia legal middle name "Democrat." "Everybody calls me that anyway and I've been active in party work for many years," he said. Now his middle name is in a political controversy. He filed Monday as a candidate for county supervisor, a nonpartisan office, and said he wants to toe listed on the ballot as Roy R. C. Democrat San- derson. The registrar of voters submitted the matter to Deputy County Counsel William Lamoreaux, who demurred, saying: "If Sanderson can establish in court that Democrat is his nickname, then it's all right with me." t Trouble is March 30 is the election filing deadline and Sanderson's name—change petition isn't due for court hearing until April 15. dollars.
