Smarting over White House failure to consult them, they announced plans to start on "independent" hearing Monday and to draw up their own reform reconuueuclations. The action served to deepen the chill which has settled over the President's plan on both sides of the Cnpltol—even among admln'.s- ^tratlon supporters.

It would reduce the number of top tax collectors Irom (H to 25, give them regional Instead of a state responsibility and mnkc them Civil Service instead of appointed officials. The proposal also would establish nn Independent inspection agency to check corruption. While House Democratic leaders foresaw trouble for the Truman proposal quick action appeared certain tain. Hoffman farls Move Rep. Hoffman (R-Mlch) yesterday introduced a resolution which would put the House on record as opposing the Truman plan. If »dopt«d, it would kill the proposal.

While saying h« felt some re organization plan would be ap proved, Hoffman explained he In troduced the adverse resolution to get a hearing, "and because I wan to understand better what UI President intends to do with thlf plan, I also want to call tlis attention Sen-Ice for lax offfclals Is no cure for corruption," he said.
