THURSDAY, JULY 16, 1953 BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THRU Extension Of Profits Tax Voted Approve I Is Ike's Top Victory So For WASHINGTON (iP> — The Eisenhower administration could count its biggest legislative triumph of the congressional session so far today in passage of the bill extending the excess prof its-tax six months. Senate approval by voice vote late yesterday sent the embattled measure to the President's desk for signature into Law. • Senate leaders succeed in beating down any amendment which would have sent the bill back to the House, where it was involved in a long bitter row that split Republican ranks. The extension, from last June 30 to Dec. 31. is estimated to bring in about 800 millions of additional revenue. But the administration had to give a flat commitment, announced on the Serrate floor, not to seek another extension. The only amendment offered in the Senate was beaten 52-34. It would have exempted from the tax any business with net income of less than $100.000 a year. The present limit if $25,000.
