Secretary of the Treasury Snyder went before the House Ways and Means, CoimnlUce lo outline In detail, with specific figures, the changes President Truman skclched only In broad outline In his recent lax message to Congress. Cutting here and raising there (lie net result of the program would' he to give the government about 41,075.1100,000 more Inccme. As to cuts In the excise, or "sales" taxes, Snyder's proposals were closely In line with forecasts: 1. Cut from 20 lo 10 per cent the retail taxes on furs, luggage, women's handbags, jewelry and toilet preparations. 2. Cut from 25 to 15 per cent Urn charges on long distance telephone and telegraph charges. Nothing was said about the 15 per cent charge on local telephone service. 3 Cut from 15 to 10 per cent the tax on rail, bus. airline and ship passenger tickets. 4. Repeal outright, the 3 per cent tax on freight charges. Snyder proposed repealing alt taxes on baby oils, powders and lotions, now subject to the 20 per cent toilet preparations tax. Critics of tbe excise taxes have hit particularly at taxing "babv oils." Many Taxes Ignored This cutting program Ignored entirely many taxes hiked" sharply .^luring the war such as those on™ lilies, , Siiydcr figured the cuts he T)ro- iwsed would cost. the government JOD5.000.onO In revenue. To make up for tills and bring In the billion dollars more of revenue he figured on: S-10.0flO,(100 from the proposed 10 per cent tax on television sets. $076,000,000 from the hike In corporation, or business taxes. The levy of 42 per cent. Instead of 38 per cent, would apply on Income above $25.000. $400,000,000 from Increased estate and gift taxes. One of the big changes lie proposed In a somewhat complicated scale was to apply the present top rate of 77 per cent on estates of $3,000.000 or more Instead of $10,000,000 ns nt present. $100.000.00 to $500.000.000 from stiffened taxes on oil and mining Interests. He proposed to cut tbe depletion allowance for oil and gas from 27'C- to 15 per cent. This "depletion allowance" Is an amount which may be deducted from taxable Income on the theory that he v.V.ue of the oil well or mine has decreased due lo the removal of oil or minerals. In addition, Jn his estimate of net increase In revenue Snyder took Into account separate legislation which is expected lo yield some. SDO.COO.COO tax from life insurance companies. Ah these figures would add a net gain of $1.010.000.000 in government revenue, nut Snyder. in a genern!- Ized statement, spoke of the proposed television lax and "loopholo closing"—the tightened taxes on oil wells on! mines—ns offsetting the cut In excise levies. On that basis, the new Uxcs would figure to gain 51,015,000.000.

Pees collected showed a large increase, and slight decreases In sal- nry expenses for the clerk and four deputies and office expenses boosted the net income still higher. In 1948, S7.389.73 was turned over to the treasurer's office for financing other activities ol the county government after paying the expenses of the circuit clerk's office.

Mr. Morris said that the Increased building activity, much of which was through veteran loan programs, was probably the chief factor in the increase. A slight decrease In similar Ices collected at the Ccccola district office was noted. In 1940, $4,559.05 was collected thrrc as compared to M,733.45 In 1048.
