MONDAY, FEBRUARY S, 1948 Congress and Public, Too,Heads Of Heavy U.S. Tax on Margarine For Showdown Seeking Repeal WASHINGTON. Feb.' 2. (U.PJ-.Tlie battle of butter versus margarine Is headed for a probable .showdown round in Confess this voiu The oleo people nre more optimistic ,han ever ovor their chances to repeal or educe the restrictive .axes and license fees on artif.cially colored margarine. «, all> rinc for 30 to 42 cents, margarine makers are hopeful that the nation's housewives now are on Iheir fiae in the campaign to willtdriiw the color line. The butter stale folks are just, as confident that they can hold the line. y Federal laws tax colored margarine 10 cents a pound nnd uncolored only 1-4 cent. They impose high license fees upon manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers. The result is that most margarine is sold uncoloi-pd, and the housewife has to add the color if she wants it. The battle which has been waged since 1886. centers mainly on the color question. "Margarine has a right to be yellow." asserts the National Association of Margarine. Manufacturers. an organization represent tin; 12 of the pre.sem 21 primary makers. "The issue is that the people who buy maigaiine want it colored; they don't want to have io color it themselves." Merely a Baltic nf Color "The Leslie here is clearly whether, the law protect ins the color ot butter shall be observed." the dairy state legislators reply, "or whether another product is to be colored so that it, looks like butter." In addition to the tax of 10 cents a pound on colored margarine and 1-4 cents a pound on uncolored, there are license fees covering every phase of margarine manufacture. MiiiHUaclurets must pay an annual license fee of $SCO. Wholesalers handling yellow margarine pay *«0 tax; those handling uncolored margarine pay $200 tax. Retailers who handle yellow margarine pay 643 in taxes. Those who deal In uncolored margarine pay SS. Pan! Truitt, president of Die f argarinc association, asserts: "The oils and fats used in margarine contain some natural yellow color. Federal regulations demand, however, that these be bleached on:, or that otherwise the yellow margair.e pay a 10 cents a pound tax. "On the other hand, artificial color }.s added to butter Ito reinforce the natural color). It is known as 'dandelion butter color.' " .Twelve bills arc pending to repeal the present tax and licensing law;. or to modify them. One measure would make margarine, available to tiie aimed forces when butter is scarce. Opposition to Uie margarine bloc's moves are summarized by Sen. Alexander Wiley. R.. Wis., and Rep Merlin Hull. R.. Wis., who represent the nation'.; leading dairy state. Tax Considered Discriminatory "The issue here j s no t repeal of the tax :;nd license fees," \vilev told the United Press. "The issue is whether a 50-year-policy of pro- tectini; the color of butter shall lie legislated out the window. If such (•femes to pass, margarine will be Volet ai higher prices than it is today. The purpose of its manufacturers is to color it so that it looks like butter. The present statues are for the purpose of seeing that no frauds are perpetrated." "The first laws restricting manufacturers of oleomargarine were enacted In 1S38 after numerous complaints that oleomargarine has been sold ns butter." Jlull said. "It was not marked as oleomargarine. "If Ihc sales of margarine are as good now as the manufacturers claim, why don't they quit worry- ma about the taxes' and license fees?" Sen. J. William Pnlbriuhl, 13., Ark., one of thase who has introduced legislation for the [nil repeal of lets on margarine, asserts that "the basic principle of such a discriminatory tax is absolutely unjustified." i Rep. Aiviu E. O'Konski, R., Wis,. j although from a dairy state, agrees i with Ins senatorial colleague. | "It is undemocratic to have a tax ; on any one commodiiv." he said. | "H it comes down to n votf. 1 think i 1^ will vote lor repeal of what 1 ""iisider a discriminatory tax."
