WEDNESDAY, I-'KBHUARY 5, 1917 President Stands Pat on Tax Policy Slash in Heavy Levy On Incomes Termed 'Without Justification' ISY KKX CHANEY (Uiilii'il I'ress Slaff Correspondent) WASHINGTON, Fct>. 5.—President Truman was reported standing firm today mi his mouth-old statement that tlicre is no justification lor n cut in income taxes this year. But congressional Reepublicans TOre equally firm in believing taxes ••^ni'tl b2 cut a'aout 20 (icr cent, «f[|iotis!h they differ widely as lo how it should he done.-. Two Democrats, Reps. AlbQi't Gore of Tennessee and John D. Dliniell of Michigan. ))lani)ed to make speeches in the House today criticizing the Republicans for their (ax stand. Doth were expected lo follow v:lmt has come to be the Democratic line on taxes—they arc not convinced Hint usiy income tax reduction at all is feasible in 1948, but if taxes are to be cut the benefits should be given first to those in the low income brackets. Demofratin leaders discounted reports that Mr. Trumnn might, attempt (o sciw the initiative from Ihc Republicans ijy suggesting where biiclReL mil tux ruts could be mad-3. They said Iho President felt that lie already had pared the new bud?et to rock-'oo'.tom levels and that he wasn't likely to recommend any changes. The President tally last month estimated expenditures for fiscal 1043 at S37.500.030.0CO and receipts at $37,130.000.0CO. Tiiat would leave little room for a 20 per cent tax cut such as the Republicans have proposed. The Republican hcipe is to cut the budget to S32 000 000 000 or S33,C»3.000.CO() and then reduce taxes after a sum is set aside toward retirement of the national debt. Mr. Truman recommended that all the excess revenue be applied to debt reduction, ^r Chairman Harold Kuu^son of (lie iHoiise Ways and Means Committee wants to grant a 20 percent tax reduction to everyone earning np to $302,000 » year.

"There has been a marked departure from the Knutson bill and from what the Republicans promised to c!o," M:Cormack said. Serves on Flagship Machinist's Mate second Class diaries D.
