The British Hotel and Travel Association, \Vhieh has been disposing: of these seats for the government, says the total of seats unsold here is about 10 per cent.

A foreign office spokesman announced last night that Humphrey PROFITS TAX (Continued from Page 1) administration was "considering everything." Some Democrats cited a paragraph in Eisenhower's tax message to Congress Wednesday which said, "a wide variety of existing excise rates make little economic sense and leads to improper discrimination between industries and among consumers." Would E<lu,ilize System One of the chief arguments for uniform national sales tax has been that it would equaltoe the present system of widely varied excise or sales tax rates on scores and scores of individual items. Congress traditionally has regarded a national sales tax as political dynamite. An extension of the excess prof- Its tax to Dec. 31 has been opposed so far by a majority of Repub'icans on the ways and means committee, which holds the fate ol the Eisenhower proposal in its hands. The committee normally starts all tax bills through Congress. Both sides agree the tax extension probably would be approved if it reached the House and Senate floors. Weather.
