CORNELL ABfKwUted .Press Staff Writer WASHiKGfON .June 19. if?y- A newly ,*WiJ>ed .tax plan designed to raise $8<XM!)pO,000 through penalty taxes on undivided corporation prbfits and other major revisions of the revehue structure aroused emphatic dissent among some senators today but administration leaders said it would go through congress Saturday night. . Tiiey. expected that President Roosevelt would welcome the plan. Which was agreed upon In a senate- house conference committee last night. It goes far to meet his demands for stiff taxes to induce corporations to distribute more in" cohie to stockholders and for addl- tlonal taxation on dividends. t'The conference agreement must nbw be ratified by both chambers. It Is generally expected to en• counter no serious trouble In the house, but some senate foes of the bill went so far today as to say privately that nearly half of the membership of the body already had determined to vote against it. NV filibuster was predicted, however, and administration leaders hoped to pass the bill in time to adjourn congress'.late Saturday night. The bill, which represents a compromise between measures previously passed by seriate and house, includes: "Informal" taxes on all corporation net ihcohie, ranging from 8 per cent oh the first $2,000 to 15 per cent on all over $40,000. (At present such taxes range from 12'/i to 15 per ceht).j ] ' . frew graduated taxes on undistributed corporation earnings, ranging,"from 7 per.cent on the first 10 per cent of earnings retained, to 27 per cent on all earnings retained t M excess of 60 per cent. , A provision giving special treatment to small corporations by applying the 7 ppr. cent tax either to the first. 10 per cent of undlstribut- . ed earnings, or to $5,000 of such earnings, whichever is the larger. .A provision applying the normal individual Income tax of 4 per cent, as well as .income surtaxes, to dividends received by corporation stockholders. At present dividends are exempt from the 4 per cent tax. A clause cutting the capital stock tax from $1.40 to $1 per $1,000 of stock, but continuing existing excess profits taxes. A temporary $82,000,000 "windfall' levy on persons described as "unjustly ehijiched" because they escaped paying the invalidated AAA's processing levies. Years of Veterans at Last Here, Names Indicate BY PRESTON OROVER. CLEVELAND—The years of the veterans have arrived. Historically it is 15 to 20 years after each war that the warrior lads of the rank and file who fought in their twenties come into the prominent places in party affairs. Not by any means is full control always taken over by former soldiers, but it is notable that two of the oustandlng figures connected with the Cleveland convention, Oov. Landon of Kansas and Senator Steiwer of Oregon, are war veterans. Political history since the World war has not run exactly parallel to the next previous war of really major importance, the Civil war. After the war between the states, the country turned at once to its fighters for leadership, beginning with General Ulysses 8. Grant. Thereafter both parties drew lav- shly on veterans' ranks for their residential nominees. The last Civ! r ar soldier to sit in the White House r as William McKinley, who roundec le turn of the century as Presi- ent. He had strutted the streets f his Ohio home town as a brilliaiv major in the armies at 22. Wood the First. No World war soldier has served n the White House, .although Gen Leonard Wood was the leading can idate for the republican nominatioi he lost by deadlock) in 1920, and Gen. Pershing was prominently mentioned. Instead of warriors, the country las drawn on Its war-time civi official ranks for post-war leader hip. Harding came from the sena orship, Coolidge. from the gover norship, Hoover from war-time fooi administratorship and Roosevel rom assistant naval secretaryship So large a portion of the country' /oung manhood wore World wa thakl that It seems inevitable tha ;he next 20 or 25 years will see th •ace for the White .House dotte with warrior names. It also may be significant that i this year the soldier bonus is bein mid. TAKES IT AND LIKES IT NEW HARTFORD, Conn. (/P. Robert Carpenter of Pine Meadow by an unidentifiec liked it. Carpenter was spanked motorist and was strolling when an automobile stopped just ahead of him. Th< ' driver leaped out and began whack irig nim about the hip pockets. Car penter's trousers were on fire matches he carried having becoirr , ignited in some unexplained man ner.. Sixteen murders in Cincinnat during- the first 137 days of 1936 were 14 less than for the corres ponding period in 1935. ^ Brazil's exports of wood last yea: totals : 167,177, metric tons and about $2,064,600, compared witl 30,989 tons and 389,040 in 1934. Convention scene: Senator Bora on a chair in a large hotel ball room nearly 300 news writers packe around. Directly in front is a pink clad woman reporter. A momen tarily lull comes in the almost stead stream of questions. "Senator," asks the pink lad something to this effect: "Isn't it your belief that, if all the hindrances In the way of agriculture were removed, the condition of the farmer would improve?" To the sharp-shooters who had been grilling the senator on constitutional and platform issues it seems a pretty useless question. There is an amazed hush. Borah, kindly visaged as a Sunday school teacher, replies something about monopoly. She writes it down, nodding her head. Shades of 1932. and the years before: The back cover of the republican convention book bears an advertisement for whisky. It is reported the democratic convention book will have something like it.

"Mississippi pilot, printer and publisher, died on April 21,1910, he left Mark Twain, writer and humorist,.behind him as a.per* petual legacy to America and to world literature. His penname is so closely associated with beloved classics like "Huckleberry Finn" and "Tom Sawyer" that his original name JB often forgotten even by those to Whom his writings are most familiar and dear. Mark Twain was born on November 30, 1835, at Florida, Missouri, but his family moved to Ilannibal in the -same state when he was four years old. It is the latter town that is best remembered as his home and it is there that the centennary of his birth was observed in November, 1935. Part of the celebration was the erection of a beautiful memorial statue, showing the author surrounded. by his best loved characters. .The central section of that statue, the work of Walter Russell,, of New York, is shown above., , Mark Twain's early education was a most sketehy,one. From his 'teens he had to earn his own living. It was a hard life but a fascinating one—as can, b« judged from Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer; lads very, mu«h like himself. ( .-...Ultimately he drifted into newspaper work in California and at 32 a San Francisfio paper sent him on a tour of the Mediterranean. Out of this and other travels he wove his "Innocents Abroad." His novels, striking 9f new note in humor, prodding the foibles of humanity with devastating laughter,, were instantly popular, bringing him fortune and renown..He died at Redding, Conn., at the age of 75..' -«.., id by Memorial Extension Commission.)

EIGHTEEN NEW CONVICTS ARRIVE AT PENITENTIARY IN HUNTSVILLE HUNTSVILLE, June 19 (#>)—In they came—eighteen more to swell the prison population. As they unloaded from the steelbodied prison truck some glanced with curiosity at the gray stone walls which they had held in dread for months past, to others this was no new thing. Clink, clink, clink, sounded the chain that yoked each man to the one ahead and made them one compact, helpless body as they started for the bull-pen. Only the shuffle of their -shoes deadened the sound. Por the most part they were lads, bushy-headed Mexican boys leaving home for perhaps the first time. One was fat with loosely spaced spines of a beard breaking the tan of his face; another was a round headed negro. A red-headed white boy was midway in the squad and two glowering whites brought up the rear. The last of these, a tall, hard-eyed fellow coming back for perhaps his third term, held against the pull of the chain, occasionally jerking It. A shock of spreading chestnut hair helped to single him out. "That's one of the toughest boys I know of," whispered the driver of the truck. : Guards unlocked the chains from around their necks after they h,ad marched into the bull-pen. "All you white bbs's get over there," said a guard, and three groups drew together—white, negro, Mexican. Then each gave his name to a convict clerk who sat smiling at their discomfiture, pencil racing as he barked question after question at them. A convict examining several packages the convicts had left outside the caged pen pushed his face to the bars and called: . "Whose four dollars is this?" One of the Mexicans claimed, identifying it as his by telling what it. had been in. Then he asked: ""Can I have my picture?" The convict on the outside poked it through to the guard. "Who is it—your girl?" the guarc asked. "No, she was my wife." "Oke," the. guard said, passing the picture to him, "but you oughtts stayed with her while you could."
