AGE TWELVE BLYT1IKV1I<LE (AUK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, DKCKMHKH 10, 1!MC> 60P Considers Income Tax Cuts I Uoders Hold Fast ! To Goal of Slash : Of'Twenty. Per Cent •'.WASHINGTON.. Dee. H (Up)— 'Republicans today were slill com- ;mltted to the 20 "per cent personal Income tax reduction b\il GOP lead- •e'rs were willing to modify t);cir ;«rlier plans for making' an equal slash til all brackets. -• The original idea was to cut •taxes "straight across the board," that is, to allow a 20 per cent re- .'duction whether a taxpayer's Mat) jlity was'» hiilltoil dollars or $21). ', .Now.' however, the Republicans b*Ueye the important thing is to re- •<WoeSll\e overall dollar total of •personal income taxes Ly M) pe> "cent. Therefore, a OOP fiscal authority said, "the door is being left open" to alternative methods of accomplishing the promised cut : Possible alternatives might be allowance of higher exemptions and ^reduction' of surtax rates. These "might mean cut of more than J8) per cent for some taxpayers and less for. others, But the overall effect would be a 2o per cent reduction in the total. : : The Job of drafting the income "tax bill will be started within the next few weeks and It is expected to be ready soon after. the new congress Is organized. ; Tax experts believe It would be easier to accomplish and to administer the proposed lax reduction W making it apply across the board. However, some feel that this method ; is not the most equitable is not based on ability to pay. Although the Republicans are determined to reduce personal in- come'taxes they have not ruled out a. search for other sources of tax revenue. They are awaiting tx report from the Joint congressional committee on internal revenue concerning tax-exempt organizations and institutions. • The joint committee expects to have its- report completed in time log consideration by the tax-legislating House Ways and Means Committee after it disposes of the personal income tax measure. . .While Congress has not been disposed to tamper with tax-exempt institutions aim organizations ii the past, many members of the House Ways and Means Conuiut- Fog Dispeller Presents 'Donee of Flames' Lnxora \ Like weird dancing figures engulfed in flame ' being tried out on runways of Landing Aids ncs, o war-born iiirport fojj dispersal device is pictured Kxpcrhncntjil Station, ArcaUi, Calif.

There have been numerous cases where a company, after taking all the allowable tax deductions for plant amortization, has donated the plant to a tax-free Institution, such i\s a church or university. Usually the company remains in the plant under lense and not only is it relieved 'of tax liability for the plant but can charge off Its rent as a business expense. Finds Money Causes Most Marital Rows NEW YORK (UP)—Money may not be the root of all evil but it is at tlie root of the largest part of all family bickering, according to Dr. Clifford n. Adams, director of the mirriiige counseling service at Pcnn State College. In telling "What Makes Married Polks Fight" hi the January American Magazine, out today, Dr. Adams .says that along with money the greatest potential Uoub!c-mak- er Is Hie husband's inothrr. "A wife can usually net cm with her own mother." he explains, but swell !s not the case 'willi the husband's mother, specially when "the Iwu women arc cooped up all day together in the house." The basic clement usually fnuntl behind all serious feuding Is a fcchnf! of frustration, according to Dr. Adams who writes: "Shell frustration arises, for example, when either mate feel''* lie or she does not have enouijh money to do ail the things desired". Quarreling, a senseless procedure, is simply one \va yof ileallm; with a frustrating situation.
