Hen Laney's program to revise llie 11113 revenue slabiliv.ation act dragged through the morning session of the 'House today, with both sides apparently satisfied to delay a showdown as long as possible. The session, with eight ol the governor's 10 bills placed before il f, yesterday, was devoted to lengthy explanation of the program, punctuated -by attacks on tactics used in attempts to push the program through. Two bills, Ihc ones increasing the severance and income laxe.s, were held out Sy llie revenue antl taxation committee for purposes ol minor amendment. 'Principal proponents of llie measures loday were Reps. I^e Benm- ster of Washington County. Glenn Wallher ol Pulaski ami W. F. Hec- lor. also of Pulaski. Rep. Lloyd Darnell of Garland, who had announced that he would attempt to amend the governor's bill which would abolish the art valorem tax, announced thai he would not introduce the amendment. He said his dccission was made after he was told by Governor Laney that a constitutional amendment would be submitted to the people in 19488, selling up tlie machinery lo allow the counties to levy'additional propsrl.y laxes. AEA liills Dormant i Ren. Man-in Bird of Crittendcn County, who earlier introduced a substitute for Gov. I.aney's hills, told the members that he and the Arkansas Education Association believed that an agreement reached with the governor was "fair." The agreement, reached after several days of discussion. wa s that the chief executive would postpone abolishment of the aci valorem lax for one more year. Principal opponents taking the floor today were Reps. Heartsill Ragon ol Sebastian and Carlton Currie of Jefferson. Meanwhile, the Senate approved a bill requiring the revenue commissioner to issue permits on application and payment of the proper fees. Tiie bill, by Sen.
