PREDICTS PLAN TO BE OFFERED Declares It Only Way to Prevent Bankruptcy By CLIFF SANDAHL W a s h i n g t o n, () -- Senator eorge A. Wilson (R. Iowa) pre- icted Tuesday that a sales tax vould be recommended 'to con- ress after the November elec- ons--regardless of what happens at. the polls. The nation, he said, is headed oward a s a l e s tax and there eems to be no way of .getting way from it. Even if congress had passed £10,000,000,000 tax bill as "de- ahded" by President Roosevelt, Viison asserted, a sales tax would inevitable to pay o££ the na- lon's "growing debt." "I will be for a sales tax," he aid in an interview, "because I eel til at it is the only way we an be sure the government will emain. solvent. "We will have to have a sales ax to wipe out the enormous lebt. We certainly cannot keep m going the way we have been r we will be bankrupt." The senator recalled that as a member of the Iowa legislature he opposed enactment of a state sales-tax on the ground that it vould be just another levy. ' He has since found that that is not the case--that the state sales tax now definitely is being used for 2 purposes,- homestead exemption and state matching oE 'ederal public assistance funds. WUson contended that the fed- e r a l government already has some forms of sales tax but .under the name of excise taxes. He referred to such taxes as those on cigars, cigarets, cosmetics, fur coats, jewelry and the like. Coupled with the sales tax, to avert national bankruptcy, will t« a need for cutting out "frills in government--the gingerbread,' as he called it, including a sharp reduction in the number of government employes. Wilson has another idea about taxation that fits into the picture. He would l i k e to see specific types of taxes allocated to the federal government, on th'e one hand, and to the states, on the other hand. In other words, he wants to Jo away with any duplication of types of t a x e s levied by both states and the federal government, such as is the case now with state and federal income taxes in some instances. "My idea," Wilson went on, "is or example, to have a sales tax md an income tax exclusively for he federal government and not lave those kinds of taxes levied Jy the states at all. .The states .hen could levy only some other tind of tax, s u c h as property axes. "It m i g h t be said that the states probably wouldn't like that since they might claim/ that the ·evenues would be insufficient ' r o m the sources allocated to :hem, I would say that the states ought to be sure and ought to be lad that their federal ment is solvent, first."
