UK-Four important amendments, one of ·which would in effect reopen the voluntary reduction program to to- hacco farmers, were adopted by a house agriculture subcommittee today in favorably reporting the Kerr bill for tobacco production control. The committee changed the flat tax rate of 25 per cent of the market value which would be levied on all tobacco sold outside of the voluntary reduction al'otmento ,to a flexible rate of 25 to 33 1-3 per cent. The exact rate would be fixed by Secretary Wallace. Two amendments are designed to take care of small farmers and those ineligible for the voluntary reduction plan. One of these would give Secretary Wallace authority to apportion live per cent of the total poundage covered in contracts to "persons engaged in the production of tobacco and to whom the secretary determines that no equitable allotment" 'of production is possible under the voluntary plan. The other provides that the secretary "may make regulations protecting the interests of share-croppers and tenants in the issuance of tax-payment warrants under this act."

"In the short time," Compton said, "in which I have been serving in NRA as chief of trade associations or in connection with code authority organizations I have been on three separate occasions approached by men evidently connected with some associations and obviously ambitious for more who promised to make me 'rich' if I would engage with them in some industry organization 'racket' which would clearly have involved a betrayal of the faith and trusteeship without which no man has a right to accept a public office." Compton was explaining the future function of trade associations in NRA. He said the power of the association would be very much up to the organizations themselves. Will Give liny Friday.
