Army officials withheld- comment. The Navy hastened to note that the service of naval reserve officers would not be affected. Reserve officers were on duty from the duration of the emergency plus six months. Mr. Truman made public his proclamation at a news conference. "Will the combined chiefs of staffs (British and American) be affected by his proclamation?" a reporter .asked. The president replied in the negative, saying the cooperation would be continued ior at least six months. He did not clarify whether he meant six months after the formal end 'of the war. One point was obvious: By act- PORTRAITS By Appointment ;ond in the Home Commercial Photographs and Photos W, R. HERNPON, PHOTOGRAPHER Ph'ones 493 and 114-J ing now. Mr. Truman was putting pressure on the new Republican- donnnated Congress to speed consideration of just what omergeney powers it wishes to preserve for the government. He said he would send Congress recommendations on powers which should be continued in peacetime. Some Republicans have talked of i repealing all quickly. Senator l Wiley (.R-Wis 1 , appointed by Sen. ate Republicans to make a' study of the matter told a reporter he had no criticism of the president's move "and in .f.ict I think we should approve it." "It certainly relieves the legislative branch oi this responsibility if it is the judgment of the president and his advisers that these s'.u'utcs should KO out the window." lie added. Under questioning as to whether this was a step in his promise to cooperate with the new Republican- controlled Congress, the president said that this was cooperating with Congress. The nresident emphasized thai the termination of the period of hostilities did not have the effect of terminating the stale of war itself. Nor. he said, does it terminate the states of emergency declared by President Roosevelt on Sept. 18. 1939 and May 27. 1941. "With respect to the termination of the national emergency and the state of war I shall make recommendations to the Congress in the near future." his formal statement, read to tho reporters, concluded. Among other things, the president said that his action would terminate the life of the Smith-Connally anti-strike act six months from today. The lime has come, Mr. Truman said at one point during an exchange with reporters, svhen the executive branch should give up some of the powers exercised during the war. "This is entirely in keeping with the policies which I have consistently followed," he said (reading again .from his statement^ "in an effort to bring our economy and our government back to a peacetime basis as quickly as possible." Only yesterday Senator Wiley (R- Wis) reported to the Senate Republican conference that the effect would ue "chaotic" if all the government's wartime controls were repealed at a sintfle stroke. He proposed are view by the judiciary committee which he will head in the 80th Congress "in the light of You get quantity too In MorolInP. Petroleum Jelly. A medictao chest "must".

Senators Vnndenberg of Michigan, Taft of Ohio, White of Maine and Millikin of Colorado held the i guiding reins firmly after beating I down a widely hearaldecl but short- lived intra-party uprising. Hence their voices carried greater weight than before as the Com mittee on Committees met to go over working assignments of the lf> Republican members and the Steering Committee gathered to decide what to do about attempts to bar Senator Bilbo (D-Miss) from a third term. First organization attempts of the Republicans in the new congress thus went off as planned, possibly presaging a somewhat similar result when House members meet Thursday to go through (the same .procedure. Despite loud opposition from anti- Dewey forces, Rep. Halleck of Indiana aopeared certain of victory in the fur-way race there for the GOP floor leadership. Halleck has been endorsed fqr the post by Gov. Thomas E. Dewey of New York, the 1944 presidential nominee who generally is expected to bid for a second try at the White House! Taft and Vandenberg, who also may be steered into the 1948 presidential contest, emerged with important policy-making positions from a stormy meeting of all the GOP senators yesterday. Taft was named to the Senate's new Steering Commitee and wax expected to be elected its chairman at today's session. Vandenberg was chosen for president pro tempore, the presiding officer's job on which the full Senate finally must pass. White was picked for party floor leader, and Millikin was named chairman of the GOP conference. All four apparently will head com- niittees also, with Vandenberg taking took over from the opposition or, While commerce and Millikin finance. Senator Wherry (Rebl, reeled ed whin and assistant leader, stood somewhat apart from the top quar tet as they disposed of opposition to their organization plans . But the price of peace included some concessions. White stepped out as chairman of the Committee on Committees and Senator Robertson of Wypm ing took over from the oppsitin ranks. Senator Knowland of Calf fornia, a comparative newcomer, won a place on this group, along with Senators' Taft, Brooks of Illi nois Butler of Nebraska, Bushfield of South Dakota, Capehart of In diana and Donell of Missouri. Although Senator Reed of Kansas told reporters «he planned to re siime his fight for the commerce chairmanship today, Robertson said he thought "the tentative assign ments made by the old committee would stand.

But the contest, ot nation - wide scope, had brought in a flood of Truman's Act Automatically Cuts Taxes Washington, Dec. 31 —(/P)—President Truman's proclamation terminating hostilities may automatically reduce the nation's 1947 tax bill by approximately $700,000.000. Colin F. Stan, expert of the joint congressional Committee on Internal Revenue told reporters that, under Mr. Truman's action, excise levies — including those on liquor, jewelry, furs, luggage and many _il .. ._ ! t III l-_ other consumer items cut back effective July — will be 1. The tax the overall national welfare." Power to declare an end io most wartime emergency laws was vested in both the president and Congress, either could act separately. The president concluded the conference by telling reporters he would see them again Thursday afternoon. The conference was limited to discussion of his proclama tion. He wished all the reporters a happy new year. In a separate document, the White House listed emergency statutes affected immediately by the proclamation. These include: The Smith-Connally Act amendment to the Selective Service Act under which plants mav be seized when their tie-up affects the war effort. The repeal would not affect past seizures. The section of the National Defense Act authorizing the secretary of war to maintain camps of instructions for members of the reserve officers training corps for six weeks periods. An ct of May 14, 1940, under A'hich the president may authorize additional enlistments in the army nedical department to such numbers as he deems necessary. o Tax Sources Continued frpm Page One cent of the sales tax collected. It s estimated that the sales tax alone would be approximately §20,000,000." Sen. W. M. Jackson of McGehee: 'I do not favor additional taxes, jut they probably will be n»ces- ary and I consider the sak . va; the fairest method." Son. Ohmer C. Burnside of Lake Village pointed out that more industries in the state would bring in more taxes. "Would not an increase in taxation at this time pave the- effect of discouraging new industries to locate in this state," he asked. Rep. A. L. Brumblelow of Camden was another legislator who favored a vote by the people on any tax. "If we must have new taxes I have for some time been thinking of the gambling, telephone and chain stores," he stated. And Rep. Lynn Wilson of Danville: "I am certainly not now in favor of additional tax levies. I might favor an adjustment of the severance tax on timber, a use tax and for five and ten cent stores to pay over all sales taxes collected. However, I do not consider these new taxes." Gov. Ben Laney has several times stated that he wants any general t&x levy submitted lo the people. However, he has indicated that specialized taxes might not be vetoed. on liquor will drop from $9 to $0 a proof gallon. The reductions were made mandatory in the 1943 wartime revenue act in which Congress stipulated the high war-imposed excises should be trimmed to specified levels six months after "the lermi- nation of hostilities." These special excise levies now are yielding about 31,400.000.000 annually. The saving in the last half of 1947 will be about $700,000,000. These are the cutbacks to be effective under the proclamation, as of July 1: Liquor — From $9 lo $G a proof gallon. Furs, luggage, jewelry and toilet preparations — From"20'per cent of retail' price! to 10 percent. Admissions—'.From 1 cent for each cents: ;to lucent for- each 10 cents. • Cabarets — 20 percent to 5 percent. :,;. . -i! .• V Wines — Varied reductions .according to type.
