WEDNESDAY, MARCH g, 1921 PAGE 4 ,7 i REVISION OF WAR TAX LAWS TO BE S UNDERTAKEN 0 By Herbert W. Walker. Vnltrri PrritK Stuff CorrcHiiondont Washington, March 9 A complete revision of the burdensome war tax law will be undertaken as one of the first major tasks of the special ses sion of congress, it appeared certain today as the reult of President Hard ing's first conference with senate and bo WW iitdes rml deToioptmrat fii aweordanes with the announced policy of Harding, that domestic af fairs are of pressing importance in congressional program, it was learn ed that the president, while not yet having definitely committed himself, is inclined to elieve that modification of taxes should puceed a general re vision of the tariff. A canvass of the senate finance and . the house ways and means committee is being made today in accordance with Harding's wishes to determine which shall be the first task of the mew congress, but it is known that majorities of both committees favor first action on the taxation question. Among those who are known to hold this view are Senators Penrose and Lodge, and Representatives Long worth, Mondell, Bacharach, Tread way and Good. It is generally admitted that no big reduction in the amount to be raised by taxation can be made. The total will have to be close to ?4,000,000,000 for the next year at least, and the present laws, because of the recent shrinkage in profits, will not convert much more than that into the treas ury. But the plan is to modify the war taxes. In accordance with this policy it is certain that the excess profits and the petty consumption taxes will be eliminated. As one substitute a tax on the net profits of corporations is being given consideration. The pro posals call for from a 10 to 20 per cent levy.

Mr. O'Brien is most acceptably cast in the role of Michael Strange, a rugetd ywung man living in a small fishing hamlat on the coast of Maine. He is an ambitious youth and the monotony of his existence is bearing heavily upon him. Paul Grayson, a wealthy afist and friend of Michael's father, offers him a home in New York, and tells Michael he will show him some real life. He does, with a vengance, and with some unexpected results. Of course, there is a girl concerned, or rather, two of them, and after see ing Eliatw fair and Eileen Cassidy jkortrajr jwitg w tunes in question, the observer will no doubt sympathize with Michael Strange in his efforts to decide upon which one to center his affections. There are some most dramatic mo ments in this John Lynch story, and Mr. O'Brien is more than equal to the occasion in each instance. - Frank Losee, who plays the artist offers an other of his always excellent charac terizations and the balance of the cast under the direction of Alan Cros land are adequate in every respect. 1 tion of A.
