Dewey Blames p res jd en t Asks Higher Corporation Levies to Offset Loss of Revenue Truman Policy For High Prices ALBANY, N. Y., Jan. 7-- U.R-- Gov. Thomas E. Dewey, potential Republican presidential candidate, today blamed the Truman administration for high prices and advocated state measures to halt runaway inflation without waiting for federal action. In his opening message to the 171st New York Legislature, on the same day as President Truman's state of the union message to congress, Dewey said the "inflationary whirlwind" has brought the nation to the brink of economic ruin. of C.

He declined to state a specific figure, but was reported favoring a 25- cent-an-hour wage hike.

WILSON United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Jan. 7--CdE)--President Truman asked Congress today to free 10,000,000 or more low pay individuals from income taxes and to impose new levies on corporations to offset an estimated revenue loss of $3,200,000,000. Specifically, he recommended a $40 cost-of-living tax credit for each individual taxpayer with an additional $40 credit for each dependent, effective on income received in this calendar year. Mr. Truman revealed his election year tax relief program in his annual message on the state of the union. He delivered it in person before a joint session of the Republican-controlled Congress. Across-Board Proposal Tax rates on larger corporations would have to be jumped from 38 to 50 per cent to raise approximately $3,200,000,000 of additional revenue. Mr. Truman's tax cut would be about the equivalent of an increase of personal exemptions from the present $500 to $700. It was an across-the-board proposal applying to rich and poor alike. But the President observed that it would mostly benefit the low income group. Motors Electrical Division. Hotpoint, Inc., large Chicago subsidiary of General Electric, ship. .

Prefer Price Roll-Back Reuther said the union would have preferred a roll-back in pric c _ · ^--*. V..4- +1t*i4 with their own plans for tax reduction. They will be based on a bill already introduced by Rep. Harold Knutson, R., Minn., chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means committee. The Knutson bill would increase personal-exemptions from the present $500 to $600 and would grant percentagewise cuts ranging from 30 per cent for the low-income groups to 10 per cent in the higher brackets. It would make no change es to a wage increase but that)m corporate rates. since industry and Congress both have failed to make substantial price reductions, the wage earner was forced to make new demands. Albert J. Fitzgerald, president of the UE-CIO. said his members were forced to make wage demands against General Electric despite the price cuts because workers can't "eat television sets.' Union officials said the real wages of workers in the industry have declined $13.03 since January. 1945- They said they would ask'for a wage increase to make up some of that amount. Knutson led the Republican attack on the President's tax proposal. ^"*SSfi«!8S^Mrf l «5J= ago. The feud, and.

New Deal Tradition The President's message was a wide swinging document in the New Deal tradition of the late Franklin D. Roosevelt. It was aimed at the many millions whom Henry A. Wallace designates a the common man. In large par it repeated recommendations of previous Truman messages which have been^ consistently-ignored by Congiess---including .aJnke iii..minimum wages. This-time from 40 to 75 cents an hour. '_ The President set up five major goals for, Congress to help him attain of approach in this presidential election year: 1. Secure the essential human rights of all citizens. 2. Protect and develop our human resources. 3. Conserve natural resources. 4. 'Lift living standards. 5. Achieve world peace based on principles of freedom, justice and equality for all nations. Wants Limited Controls The President again expressed disapproval of the Taft-Hartley labor control act but said he would enforce it so long as it remained on the books. In addition to his new request for a higher minimum wage, Mr. Truman appealed again for limited rationing and price-wage controls to fight inflation, universal training for American youth, a long-range housing program, and a national health insurance program.

The phone introduced in the United was the principal 'speaker at the Egyptian Council's annual meeting at the Harrisburg country club Tuesday evening. Stating that in his boyhood days there was plenty of work around the house to keep Jboys occupied, there was no need for supervision of activities. With the advent of m o d e r n conveniences, making more leisure time, those interested in youth recognized the need for organized activities and the Boy Scout organization and supervised play grounds seemed to be the answer. As a newspaper editor in Washington, D. C., Dr. Albert played a leading part in the early scout program and helped James E. West, now Chief Scout, to get his start in scouting in Washington. Dr. Albert has travelled in most of the countries of the world and stated that America has the highest program and other programs dedicated for the good of the young people be given the whole hearted support by all. Council officers for 1948 were elected as follows: President, M. H. Detwciler: vice presidents, Louis Fulkcrson. Harrisburg, J. E. Stine and A. H. Cronk: treasurer. J, V. Walker and council commissioner, H. H. Wallace. The officers were installed in a candle light ceremony conducted by Troop 14, Eldorado. . . , Following prc-dinner music by the German band of the H. T. H. S.. Rev. Homer Young of Johnston City, asked the invocation. Group singing opened the program after dinner was served and Mayor H. message keynotes were peace and prosperity. But Mr. Truman warned that inflation was dangerously out of hand and must be checked to prevent depression. To that end he asked again for the cost-of-living controls which the November - December emergency session of Congress considered and largely rejected. These included authority for limited rationing of $40 Tax Saving' For Everyone In Truman Plan WASHINGTON, Jan. 7--(KE)_ Here's how you would figure your income tax bill under President Truman's "cost of living tax credit": -; You'd compute your 1948 taxes exactly as you did for last year. The rates would be the same. But then you'd knock off $40 for yourself and another $40 for each dependent. A man with a wife and two children would subtract $160 from his tax bill, for example. The credit would-not take a bite out of taxes on 1947 income--the taxes on which final settlement is due March 15. The credit would apply to income received after Jan. 1, 1948. President Truman did not explain in detail how the plan would work- · · Would Adjust Tax But-^Treasury Department' tax experts "'said that- if-' Congress should' approve "the " Wesidentfs plan,- the - withholding* 'tax would je adjusted immediately to take nto account the reduction "proposed by Mr. Truman. But taxpayers who are not under the withholding system and who file quarterly installment re:urns would presumably be able to take their credits along with their first installment on 1948 income, which is due this March 15. In this respect, the President's proposal is similar to the tax reduction bill introduced by Chairman Harold Knutson, R., Minn., of the House Ways and Means committee, which also applies only :o income received after Jan. 1. Treasury figures show that individuals paid $18,000,000,000 in taxes last year. Knutson goes after tax reductions from the bottom. His bin first would raise individual exemptions from $500 to $600. This would free some 6,000,000 persons from federal taxes, saving them about $2,000,000,000. t Knutson Bill Cuts Kates ' In addition, he proposes special exemptions for elderly persons. .(Continued on Page Six) For March of Dimes A.

These would free another 1,400,000 from taxes, at a cost to the treasury-of about $200,000,000. Knutson's bill goes further; aU told it would cut taxes by a total of $5,600,000,000, compared U» Mr. Truman's $3,200.000,000 cut Other major provisions of the Knutson bill include cuts in rates of up to 30 per cent and a section permitting couples to split their taxes. This latter would in effect extend the lower tax benefits enjoyed by couples in the 12 community property sites to all states. Treasury officials, who are not adverse to" tax splitting, have estimated that it would cost the treasury from $700,000,000 to $900,000,000 vcsrlv. The'Truman plan would give the · best break to large families, which would stand to gain more than they would under the Knutson plan even with cuts in the tax rate. 15 Dead in Plane (rash in Georgia SAVANNAH.
