E D I T O R I A L The Slote Is Clean Now for a Real Tax Bill; Courage Needed INIANCUAOTiKttoSrtteS r_ -? C l f ~ io misun derstanding. President Roosevelt has vetoed the new tax bill which congress was some 9 months in incubating The chief executive and S e c r e t a r y Morgenthau had asked for 10 billions in extra taxation and the new bill provided only about 2 billions. Hot words are now flying thick and fast across the valley between Capitol hill and the white house And, as is often the case, southern democrats are most prominent on W of North Carolina and Senator George of Georgia seem to be packing the greatest verbal wallop. "Trying to raise an issue the executive versus congress," commented Senator George. Senator Alben Barkley o£ Kentucky: {once "Dear Alben" to President Roosevelt) has broken with the president. In a blistering statement he has announced his intention to resign as majority leader in the upper house. A S this is written an over-riding of the veto seems most likely Failure to over-ride the veto will probably mean continuing the F'i? ent ^ tax biU " c °ngress has taken . the position that it would be -impossible within the time limitations to write a new bill that would be adequate. «r, Th £V°, OUr opini ° D . « what should be done.
