DBS MOINES, (fP)--Two demo cratic senators filed Wednesday bill which would let thousands o lowans in lower income bracke! escape payment of state incom taxes and, in effect, sharply re duce the rate for those paying. The bill, presented by Sen. Har old I. Irwin of DC Witt and Sen T. -Fr Driscoll of Farmington · would rewrite a section of the state income tax law which pro vides "deductions" from tax pay ment and substitute income "ex emptions." It would permit a single man a $1,000 exemption whereas the present law permits him to deduc the equivalent of the tax on the first $600 of his income. The exemption for married men would be $1,800 instead of a deduction on the first 51,100. Under the present law, for example, a married man with a $3,000 income must pay a $48 a yeai tax, but his under the Irwin-Driscoll bill would be $14, Trotsky's Home in Mexico City I Fi MIDWESTERNERS WATCH PARADE Join Festivities Launching President Roosevelt on 2nd Term.
