MONEY (Continued from Page I) $2,000 behind a commode In the :ell block nnd tumed it over to he officers. Between $2,000 and $3.000 were foumi under Dtnncfs cell mattress. Under questioning this morning, Dpimcr's actions Indicated infinity Dill officers said they believed this was an "net." Denner talked incoherently line! remembered little of circumstances surrounding the j theft. However, he showed signs I of lucidity on certain poinls Hint ! led officers lo doubt his apparently unbalanced state of mind. Tells of Finding Money Denner. who said he had worked for the produce firm about two years, told officers he found the money behind a pile o( sacked potatoes in tlie firm's warehouse, where lie worked. He claimed he was looking for n carton of cigarettes he had tossed on the potato pile when he found the money. He denied giving any of the money away and said he was alone when he found the money. Denner kept repeating that "someone must have stole it" when officers asked him where the rest of the money was. They believed that Hill found the money Denner had concealed in the cell block. Denner and Hill were both In the lower tier of cells but Hill was later transferred to tlie upper row. Hill appeared In Municipal Court this morning on the drunkenness charge but his case was continued and a bond of $20.25 was set. Municipal Judge Graham Sutibury Marshall Plan (Continued from P»te 1) lhat administration leaders were ready to sott-pedal their warnings. Marshall, in a nationwide radio address last night, said the U. 3. is confronted with the choice of completing European recovery Job. or of "quitting Europe altogether." The latter, he said, is unthinkable. The secretary said Europe's survival may be Imperiled If Congress insists oh drastic changes in the administration plan. Marshall's address was viewed as ait out-and-out, bid for popular support against Republicans who want . to slash the projected $6,800,000.000 1 clown-payment for the plan. The soldier-diplomat emphasized TREASURY (Continued from Fife 1) present 12 to all states the privilege of a husband and wife to split their Income for tax purposes, and ) reduce taxes from 10 to 30 per cent In all Income brackets. Contradicts Estimate* Congressional tax experts estimated the loss ol revenue under Knutson's bill at $5,600.000.000 a year. Snyder said this was too low. Congressional statisticians also maintained that the GOP bill would lop 7,400,000 low income taxpayers off the federal tax rolls. Snyder said this figure was too high—that the number removed would be 6,300,000. The President's plan, on the other hand, would drop 10,300,000 taxpayers from the rolls and relieve "real hardship" that has developed with the hlgti cost of living, Snyder told the committee. Snyder said that In view ot Ills responsibilities for the "sound management" of federal finances, he could not endorse a bill that would reduce revenues at a time when national income and employment are at an all-time high and Inflationary pressures are strong.
