And 1 tnink I know— we can do it by reducing taxes. That's the soundest way." However, Chairman L>>o E Allen of the House Rules Committee renewed his demands for slidinp scale income tax reductions to give the largest cut to those with the smallest incomes." Allen would reduce taxes '20 per cent on in conies up to .52500; 17 per cent on incomes $2.500 to S5.000; 15 per cent from S5.000 to S10.0CO and 10 per cent from $10 - •COo up. 9 ' He contended that the Knutson 20 per cent across-the-board reduction was inequitable it would give taxpayers in the hi-riei income brackets the greatest rea savings.
