This would involve abatement, but would no tax let each taxpayer attain pay-as-you-go u-go at his own option any time in the year and simultaneously remitting on the current year.

Ruml supporters described the new proposal, brought out by Chairman Doughton as "no pay-as-you-go at all." The withholding levy would become effective July 1. It would not be an additional tax but collections under it would be applied to actual taxes as now computed.

As explained by committeemen, the plan now apparently favored by a majority of the committee would also provide: 1. All taxpayers to file their returns and pay one-fourth of their 1942 obligation March 15 and another quarter June 15, as usual. 2. Approximately 17,000,000 persons having taxable income for the first time in 1943 to be put on a current basis immediately through the 20 per cent withholding tax and periodic collections against income other than wages and salaries. 3.

Other taxpayers to have the option of paying in one year on the basis of income the previous year as at present or, at any time they desired, to "double-up" by paying off the previous year and having current collections applied to current year income. 4. A slight discount on the lagging tax year to induce taxpayers to "catch up" and become current. Rep. Gearhart said "the offering of a slight discount inducement, probably of 10 per cent, ought to place all income taxpayers on a current basis by the middle of 1944." After turning down the Ruml plan yesterday, the committee today rejected again pay-as-you-go proposals by Rep.

Robertson and Chairman Doughton. Under the Robertson plan, the six per cent normal and 13 per cent first bracket surtax on 1942 income would be cancelled for all taxpayers, meaning that last year's obligation would be erased altogether for 0 per cent ot the taxpayers. Doughton Proposed that the much softer 1941 rates that the much softer 1941 rates and exemptions be applied to 1942 Income, to ease the transition to pay-as-you-go.

London, Wednesday, March 10 Vice-President Henry Wallace's call for a post-war understanding among the Western democracies and Russia was appraised today by the London Daily Mail as "the most useful speech of his career." Repeating Wallace's words that a third World war was likely to follow unless the present Allies get together, the paper said: "There he gets to the heart of the matter.

Nations which unite to fight a common peril in war tend to fall apart in peace. "That has been the German opportunity. For the German peril does not disintegrate. Even when it faces defeat it is planning a revival. It Is doing so now.

"So we go a step further than Mr. Wallace. We would say that if the United Nations are not really united now they may not only lose the peace but they may fail to win the present war." Referring to Admiral William H. Standby's Moscow statement as "somewhat unwisely made," the Daily Mail said every' such utterance and "every nagging speech on lend-lease, every disagreement such as that over the Polish-Russian frontiers, every political storm such as the Darlan episode are gifts to Goebbels."

Army Seeks To Enlarge WAAC (By The Associated Press) Washington, March 9 As the Army grows, the WAACS increase. Secretary of War Stimson, discussing plans for an army of 8,200,000, noted tonight that this figure would include the Women's Army Auxiliary corps "of upwards of 150,000." Actually, the army is now seeking authority to incretse the WAAC from its present authorized strength of to 375.000 by the summer of 19-14, with strong indications that demands from Army commanders and staffs may even double this figure.

That's the outlook for an organization which started only last May. with an authorized strength of 25,000. and a single training center at Fort Des Moines, la. Plans for a fifth training center were announced last week, and the Army, which thought at first the women would have quite limited usefulness, now is training them to replace men in more than 60 jobs, from acting as office messengers to rigging parachutes and repairing bombsights for the air forces.
