Grange Master Comes Out Against Cut In Income Taxes Next Year By JOHN BOOTH INS Farm News Writer WASHINGTON — National Grange Master Ilersehel D. Newsom has come out flatly against any cut in federal income taxes next year. The head of the nation's oldest tarm organization made this comment : "A tax cut at this time would only serve to widen agriculture's disparity with the rpt;t of (ho pi-on- Woman Acquitted In Shortest- Trial Niles Corporation Starts Bxpansiort NILES, 0. (INS)— The Mallory- Sharon Titanium Corp. of Niles announced today it has completed p \irchase of the entire Niles rol- lini4 mill as the first step in an expansion program designed to double capacity of titanium and titanium alloys during 1956. .Jamrs-Ar-Roemer, president of Mallory-Sharon, said that acquisition of the rolling mill, formerly a division of Shai'on Steel Corp., will enable the Niles firm to directly control all stages of titanium production. nmy) for the reason that it would stimulate inflation, which in turn would widen the farmer's cost- price gap. "Since he is paying very little income tax anyway, inflationary increases in his expenses would far outweigh any small tax savings he might make." But there are other reasons why the Grange and Newsom have pledged to fight any tax reduction next year with all the weapons at their command. For example, the farm group points out tliat with the tempo of the cold war being stepped up again there is a strong possibility that this country's expenditures for military strength will have to be maintained at the present level or perhaps even increased. The Grange believes that more deficit financing at this time — borrowing to foot the government's bills -— would be unthinkable at this time. On the other hand, the farm organization contends that with the entire economy booming, with the exception of agriculture, now is tlie time to begin paying off some of thj staggering load of federal debt. | As Newsom sees it: "To postpone a federal debt reduction program is to place the nation in financial jeopardy if and when heavy federal expenditures are again needed, because of war or depression." Finally, the (Ji-angc believes that | any lax cut madi- next year would cari-y witii it a sirong smell of politics, coniuig ;is it would in advance of the pi'esidential election i., November. Newsom takes the i)osition that a tax reduction based on strong political appeal might not be l)est for the counlry. In essence, hou'c\er. his strongest argument is that fanners as a group,stand lo^Jienefil least from any tax windfall. Fai-m net income — the amoinit on which taxes are paifl — is down about iO percent in 19,-)."). .Accoj-ding to ofUcial forecasts, a furtiier reduction in agricultural income is in prospect for 19.i(j al- iliongh the size of the drop is ex- peclcd to be much smaller than the one this year.
