TUESDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1JMT Knulson Predicts Tax Cut Passage Ways, Means Group Head Denies Plan I* 'Rich Man's Bill' k WASHINGTON. Dec. 16 (UP) — •Chairman Harold Knutson of the House Ways ami Means Committee denied yesterday that his new Income tax reduction plan was *. "rich mnn'.s bit]." The Minnesota Republican said Ills proposal would mean tax cuts of. as much as 57 per cent to poorer taxpayers while "the rich man will be Betting less than 10 per cent." He predicted hts bill would be law by next Spring no matter hoxv President Trimian reels about It. "My guess Is that this tjmc we car muster enough voles In the Senate to override a veto." he salrl. Rep, John D. Dingell, D.. Mich:, said KnuLson's measure was "still a rich rnan'.s bill" because the greatest real savings would be in upper brackets. He predicted a veto. Ktuilson said he thought his plan had gained considerable support by the addition of community property privileges which . enable husbands and wivc\s to split income for tax purposes. The bill would boost personal tax exemptions from J500 to $GOD. lopping an estimated (i.000,000 o(f the federal rolls. It would give savings of different degrees to 44.000, 000 others. Knutson originally called nil executive session of his committee for yesterday to give his bill its first semi-official once-over, but later called It off. BLYTHEVILLE (AKK.)

Supreme Court Upholds Indiana Ruling WASHINGTON. Dec, 16. (UP) — The U. S. Supreme Court yesterday upheld the right of states to regulate, the sale of natural gas bv interstate pipeline companies directly to industrial customers. The 8 to 0 ruling was made in a. case involving Panhandle Eastern Pipe Line (So., and the Stale of Indiana. The company had contended sucli sales were free from all regulation, state or federal. Justice Wiley B. Rutlcdgc read tile court's decision. Justice Frank Murphy took no part in the case. The natural gns act prohibits federal regulation of the disputed sales.
