TlEASUlRY TURNS
TO TAX REVISION
Formulation of Policy 1ins Been
Started. Ready for Congress.
Was-blington, March 17.--Fornfula
tion of a treasury Policy on tax revi
ston has been started and probably
will be really for submission to con
gress when it convenes April I1, In ex
tra session. Treaury experts have
been engaged for some days in making
a survey of revenle sources and the
extent to which earch lay be tappod
inI bringing money into the govern
ment's vaults.
It was indicated today that while
Secretary .lMellon had not taken eb
lie stand with ,respect to the question
of whether revenue or tariff revision
shotudi have precedence in congress
he is declared to have the necessary
(lata on the subject ready for use
should congressional connittee call.
Air. Alellon said that no decision had
been reached on a question pertinent
to the forms of new tax laws but in
ternal revenue experts were under
stood to be preparing to make recoml
menidatiots onl sone whases of the im
portant problem.
Formler Secretary Illot's
were that taxation imcastres shouild
be consider.ed allead of all other l'
islation bveeause of the effect on busIa
n1s of challgod tax laws. There has
been no indication of a cange ill
policy ;In fthat respectI heraulse, 1 -v
of the ollicials conneluted with tIhe

an insistent demand for Oi the

Which has been particularly odious to
