REVISION OF WAR
TAX LAWS TO BE
By Herbert W. Walker.

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

the petty consumption taxes will be
eliminated. As one substitute a tax
on the net profits of corporations is
being given consideration. The pro
