This award the Supreme Court upheld. Continued from Pag* I (list. In the hope that action will be taken later to make up for the loss In revenue." In his 4,500-word message, the President discussed at considerable length "shocking" loopholes which he said allow some persons and interests to escape millions']!!, taxes. As one example, he said that "under present law producers of motion pictures and their star players, have attempted to avoid taxes by creating temporary corporations which are dissolved after making one film." Scores Ta He said one ( oil operator, because of the depletion allowance, was able to develop properties yielding $5,000,000 a year, but paid only 5100,000 taxes over a five-year period although his Income from non-oil sources alone averaged almost $1,000,000 a yciir. . Mr. Truman did not identify the oil man. He mentioned also revenues he- Ing lost "through the abuse of the lax exemption accorded educational and charitable organizations." On that, the President said there are instances where the exemption accorded charitable trust funds "has been used as a cloak for speculative business ventures, and the funds intended for charitable purposes buttressed by tax exemption, have been used to retain control over u wide variety of industrial enter>rises," Mr. Truman also said that as csult of a "quirk iri the present law 1 fe Insurances companies have \u\- ntentionally been relieved of in omes taxes since 1910 on $1.500.000.- XK) of investment income a year. He urged that steps ue taken tt develop a permanent system lor tin a.vation of life insurance compan es "which will remove the inequi- ies of under taxation in this field without impairing the ability of individuals to acquire life insurance >rotectfon." This is a situation Congress has been working on. The House Ways and Nfeans Committee last week approved legislation to ijnpose a $90,100,000 tax on the investment carn- nsjs of insurance companies over .he last three years. Present taxes are exacted to bring about $37,300,000,006 llils year. 'his will be about $5,500,000,000 liort of anticipated expenditures. In -jsklnx an over-all Increase of $1,000,MKI,00« In taxes, Mr. Truman retreated from '(he $4,004,- CKW.OOO boost lie recommended last year and which Congress ignored. This time he made no mention of ilgher taxes for middle and upper >racket Individuals, such as was nclllded ,in Ills $4,000,000,000 bill. Many Congress members had an- Iclpated the President's new mes- age would take into count the re- Uily that Congress probably would be slow, since this is an election •ear. to put new taxes on Individuals Driver Forfeits Bond Bill Williams forfeited a S45.25 j cash bond in Municipal Court this mrirning on a charge of driving white under the influence of liquor. HL'arinp for Mrs. Doyle Ayccck on a similar charge was continued i popcorn from until Jan. 25. ' while employed $25,000 Damage Case Heard in Circuit Court A suit for $25,000 damage, brought by Miss Pearl Green Blytheville against the Sterling Store here was to be argued before a jury this afternoon in the Chicka sawba District of Mississippi Coun ty Circuit Court. The jury also is scheduled t receive its instructions in the case this afternoon. Miss Green's com plaint alleges she was damagec when she was accused of taking vending mach'ini by tlie store. or much larger burdens in any other direction. The president said the tax program he recommended is designed to IrcngUicn the tax system "so that t will yield revenues sufficient to jalance expenditures as they are 'ill-tiler reduced over the next sev- •ral years, and to provide some sur)!us for debt reduction," He also said: '•However, in line with the policy of gearing changes in revenue laws to the needs of'our economy, i would not hesitate, if strong inflationary or deflationary forces should appear, to support the use of all measures necessary lo meel the situation, including more pronounced adjustment of tax rales upward downward as the case might be.
