*MMriMWi«T AWANU1 TUMI, M»nrffy, II, 1*» Truman Plan To Reorganize Revenue Bureau Opposed Washiniton-OT-Prcsidcnl Tru- I firmed by the Senate. !\tn's plan to reorganize the In- ! It would substitute 25 -district commissioners. All officials in the tcrnal Revenue Bureau today faced growing opposition--and possibly defeat--in the Senate. Chiirman · McClcllan (D-Ark) of thfc Senate Expenditurrs Committee, considering the plan, reported "I am not satisfied with ttie testimony presented for it." . · It was learned, too, that opponents of the proposal export veteran Senator George (D-Ga) to come but. against it.' He is chair- J m a n of the tax-writing Finance Committee. George is to testify before the Expenditures Committee on the plan February 26. x Mr. Truman sent the plan to the Capitol last month as his first 1952 proposal on the corruption- in-xovernment issue. The tax collecting bureau has been subjected . to a probe by a' House subcommittee In recent months. ' Many Charges of misconduct have been'heard. Seven of the na. tion's 64 regional tax collectors have left office in less than a year and in all 166 employes wore fircfl or ousted last year, 60, for alleged dishonesty. The'Senate will have to act adversely on the Truman proposal by March 14 or it will go into effect automatically. The House has approved it by a big vote. ^ George and some other Finance Committee members reportedly are concerned that the plan would end the right of taxpayers to get » jury trial in a tax case in their own local Federal District Court. McClellan said this was "a very important question." It arose, he said, because the reorganization scheme woulH abolish the statutory office of collector of internal revenue in the states. At present suits may be filed against the collectors. But McClcl- said some senators feared 1'nat bureau.would be under civil scrv ice except the commissioner of in lernal revenue, the top man.
