Tax Bill Changes Rejected House May Accept $50,000 Income Levy Hike \Y7ASHINGTON, Aug., 2. W (AP)—Swiftly rejecting a series of amendments, some of them .radical, the house today all but agreed upon that section of the §270,000,000 tax 'bill that would boost rates on individual incomes over $50,000 a year. A final decision on that point in the wealth tax measure -was postponed until tomorrow. But after the closing: of debate on the bill, the rapidity with which amendments were voted down today indicated little possibility of an upset which would change the. measure as reported by the ways and means committee. Intent Of Bill In brief, the bill would raise from 30 to 31 per cent the tax on that portion of • an individual's income between ?50,000 and $56.000. It then would step! up rates all along the line until a maximum of 75 per cent, against the present 53, was reached on that part of income over ?5,000,000. This section ot the bill is officially estimated to raise an additional $45,000,000 a year. The house ended its day's work after a, 7% hour session..

It is complicated, but apparently is to this effect: That any opposition to the Nazi party, by direction or indirection, by commission ot acts or omission of acts, amounts to the crime ot volksverrat, or breach o£ faith with the community.
