Administration ana Senate *Re publican leaders so far have bypassed the debt-limit issue in ask ing for all possible speed on the tax bill. The Finance' Committee maj report out the measure when i meets behind closed doors today It is expected to make no signifi cant changes in the version tentatively approved a week ago after six weeks of secret voting. The bill would cut a variety of taxes by about $1,400,000,000 in its first year of operation, although this would be partly offset by a one-year extension of the 52 per cent corporation tax rate to yield an extra $1,200,000,000. The rate would drop to 47 per cent without the extension. The bill's estimated revenue loss would be higher in succeeding years.

Lehman told the Senate in a speech accompanying the resolution that McCarthy has "grossly abused the authority delegated to him as chairman of the Government Operations Committee and of (the -investigations) subcommittee thereof, inspired and created public disrespect for the law-making authority, created public confusion in all branches of government and impaired the high standing and prestige of the Senate." McCarthy was there but silent while Lehman put in his resolution. Afterwards, returning to the investigations subcommittee's hearings on his dispute with top Army officials, the Wisconsin senator reported he had been absent because there was "another of those resolutions concerning Sen. McCarthy being introduced." '1 was asked to stay over there until it was .disposed of," he said. "It ha* been disposed of." Reds'Parents Are Arrested •T.

Brownell said this "open invitation to violate the laws of the United States would substitute rule by an individual for government : by law." "He went on: "Long years of experience have proved that direction and control of military secrets, intelligence information and counterintelligence information belongs to the executive branch. "During all our history, the ordinary auditing powers of congress, plus its 'broad powers to legislate and its broad powers to control the purse strings have sufficed to provide the necessary checks on the executive branch. That is a better system than destroying our constitutional system of separation of powers—an action which our founding fathers warned would result in tyranny."
