(AP) — The Senate Finance Committee today unanimously approved President Truman's proposal for a $1,500,000,000 a year increase in corporation taxes—boosting the top corporate income rate from 38 percent lo 45 per cent. The committee acted shortly after President Truman told a news conference that an excess profits tax will be enacted eventually. The comniittee ruled that the higher rates shall apply as of July 1, 1950. It refused to accept Mr. Truman proposal that the increases apply to atl of 1950 corporate income. The corporate increase Ls part of Mr. Truman's overall $5,000,000,000 tax increase proposal, 'to help fi- ^iiance the Korean war and America's armament against Communist aggression. Vote on Income Tax Near The committee probably will vote . tomorrow on the President's proposal for a $3,000,000,000 increase in levees on individual incomes—raising the rates by 20 percent in some Income categories. The corporate rate approved to- dav would be 25 percent on the first $25,000 of corporation income, and 45 percent on income above »25,000. President Truman said that he would of course approve an excess profits tax If it is added to his $5,000.000,000 interim tax proposal. Mr. Truman said, however, that auch a tax was very controversial and should not be permitted to delay action on the original White House proposal. He said Congress win DC m a bel- ter position to act on an excess profit* tax after November whet: it won't have election jitters. . The real battle on putting a ceil- 1 ins on' profits probably will come when -thevbill ifvchc-v the 3r nr^ floor. The vote there may be cloaip |fc; To Walt for Full'study ^ , George said if the 'Senate pins on such a tax he will move that the bill be sent back to his committee for hearings. He Insisted that action oil an excess profits levy be put off until later this year or Jan, nary, so that Congress can make & full study nf how to apply such a Th« corporation tax schedule now If, 21 per cent of the first $5,000; 33 per cent of the next f -.000; 2J5 per cent of the next *5; : .i>;''53 per cent of the income between $25 and $50,000, and 38 per cent on income above $50,000, The new schedule would mean higher taxes for corporations earning up to $31,250 and for those earning fore than $71,400. Corporations earning between $31,250 and $11,400 actually would get reductions in their tax obligations. Yanks Forge Ahead 13 Miles, Trap 1,000 N.

Strayer Urges Production of Best Possible Grade of Soybeans to Hold Export Markets Soybean producers, buyers and processors of Mississippi County and .his area were warned yesterday that If they hope to hold the great export market now in thetr grasp. :hey must do something about producing and exporting the best possible grade of soybeans. George M. Ctrayer, secretary- treasurer of the American Soybean Association, issued this warning in talk to the buyers and processors at a noon luncheon at the Rustic Inn yesterday and In a second speech before a huge throng of producers that crowded Into the county Court House last night. Mr. Slrayer. brought to Blythe vllle through the sponsorship of the Mississippi County Farm Bureau, told both groups that If this area would supply the export markets with a good grade of soybeans, ad vantages held by the South, such as cheaper freight rates mid Ihe near- new to port cities such us New Orleans, would enable them to hold these rmrkeUs. But, he atided, if th«y do not produce high grade beans this year he feared this area's export market would kn forever Mr. Strayer told his listeners that. country buying station when the the best way to make sure only the best beans got into the export market was by using a strictly graded basis. He told of a recent lour of several European counlrics made by himself and other members of Ihe American Soybean Association and said he had seen in various Europ- t can ports boatloads of soybeans' which had been loaded at New Orleans. These loads had as much as 13 per cent foreign matter in them, he said, and added that the South could not expect to ..sell lhat grade of product to Holland, Germany and other export markets. Mr. Slrayer said the South suffered a disadvantage with other .soybean areas ol Ihls country In lhat beans grown In this area had from one lo two per cent less oil content. And, he added, "oil content Is what sells soybeans." The only wmy u> roint combat this competition Is to use a grading system for the Southern soybean, he continued, and suggested that UM lo«lc«J point for (ndlnc wu Ui« beans were brought to market. The association secretary also emphasized the need for more storage space in this area. He estimated that about 3.000.000 bushels of hcans would be produced this year in Mississippi county alone and said tiiat area growers and buyers iiould hop* lo ship Ihis mass as soon as it was harvested. r rhc stcppcd-up defense movement and other factors will cause great shortage In box-cars. Mr. Strayer warned, and urged lhat storage facilities be provided as soon a.s possible. Soyb«mn Price Support! As to government price support on soybeans, Mr. Slrayer offered his guess that there would be none while prices were favorable. He said the government fc.ucd lhat price supports would tend to lower the market price. He told both groups not to expect high prices this year, however. He said that more beans were being grown In th« United States than ever before and that for the first time In his memory this country WM producing mor* O u »nd fiU than it uses. "You can expect reasonable, but not high." he concluded. Dixon Jordan ol the Standard Commission. Co. of Memphis gave a brief review on the freight rate situation at Blytheville and asked for support in opposing a proposed railroad freight rate Increase. Ralph Taylor, government grain inspection supervisor of St. Louis, gave a demonstration of how soybeans were graded and explained government standards set up tn the Drain Standards Act of 1913. Association Functions Paul Hughes, field service director of the American Soybean Association and final speaker at both sessions, explained the functions- of the association. He told his listeners that the association was formed to promote soybean product sales and rind new markets. He urged support of the association to the extent that producers pay one-fifth of a cent for each bushel ot soybeans sold." which would mean." he added, "only 20 cents for every hundred bushels.
