Amendments o the pending tax revision bill if reed to- by Republican leaders in hi' senate were made public today, -rmally in advance of their consid eration tomorrow by majority mem bers of the finance committee. They would provide for:. A maximum sur tax rate of 50 per cent, on that part of incomes in ex cess of $200,000 in lieu of the com mittee plan for a 32 per cent, maxi mum on the excess over $06,000. Repeal of the express, freight, lassenger and Pullmna transporta :ion taxes, effective at the passage. of the bill. An increase from $2,20 a gallon to $-1 a gallon in the tax on distilled spirits produced, imported or with drawn from bond for use for indus trial, medical or other purposes. Restoration of the capital stock tax of one dollar on each SI. 000 of in vested capital. A graduated increase ! in the estate tax rates to a maximum : of 50 per cent, on the excess over : $100,000,000 in lieu of the present maximum of 25 per cent, over $10, 000,000. Repeal of the excises on sport goods, chewing gum, perfumes, es sences, tootht and mouth washes and paste, toilet powders and oap and soap powders and other miscellaneous taxes sufficient to make up a cut of $37,000,000 annually. Elimination of the proposed tax on Julius Langer, promoter of the various co-operative associations for farmers on the Pacific and Atlan tic coasts is coming to Florida short ly to encourage closer organization here of growers, especially in the po tato line. He will go to Gainesville to confer with the University Extension authorities and lay his plan before them. He will then come to Palatka at the instance of the Chamber of Commerce and confer with the potato growers of this section. Mr. Langer installs the "Sappiro" system, which is described in a re cent article in the New York Times, telling of the organization of the potato growers along the "eastern shore." The article from the Times is as follows: Within the next weelf New Jersey potato farmers who are organized on a co-operative basis will take first steps to arrange for a $500,000 loan for financing next year's crop of New Jersey potatoes. It is estimated that this loan will place on a basis of commercial efficiency over CO per cent, of the potato growers of the New Jersey district, or Central Pota to Belt, as it is called. The organization primarily inter ested in the loan is the New Jersey Potato Growers' Association. This co-operative marketing association has a membership of 600 farmers and represents an acreage of 20,000 in the potato district composed of Mon mouth, Middlesex and Mercer Coun ties. The Central Committee of the association reports that the associa tion did a business of a little over $3,000,000 on the last crop. The Cen tral is composed of an alliance of two locals, known as the Monmouth Coun ty Potato Growers' Co-operative As sociation, with headquarters at Free hold, N. J., and the Giant Potato Growers' Association, at Hightown, where the central office is also located. In order to be enabled to avail it self of the "collective credit" system of borrowing, the potato growers are now conferring on the various finan cial, legal and eccnomic advantages of the "Sapiro Plan" of co-operative marketing with Julius Langner, or ganizer of the New Jersey Poultry Producers' Association, and many other co-operatives in the country. Mr. Langner gave out a statement yesterday from the office at 132 West Forty-second street, eastern headquar ters of the seventy-five co-Operativcs, in which he said that the plan of fi nancing the farmers which he had presented to the New Jersey potato! growers will include the furnishing IEFUSAI or GOVERNOR TO CALL SPECIAL TERM CAUSE Not Enough Money On Hand to Pay Last Week's Salaries. SITUATION CRITICAL Board Said It Expected Governor to Come to Relief of System By Aaaoclatea -Prraa) Miami, Oct. 7. Dade county schools were ordered closed for an indefinite period this afternoon by the county board of education, fol lowing a secret session when the en tire situation confronting the board was carefully reviewed. The refusal of Governor Hardee to call a special session of the legislature to autho rize a $500,000 bond issue for which Dade county has buyers, was given as the reason for the closing.' J "r" The board has felt assured that Governor Hardee would call the ses sion which Dade county was to bear the expenses of and his refusal means that the schools are faced with a hopeless situation, Chairman Filer, of the .board said following the an nouncement today. All schools are ordered closed and the teachers and pupils have been requested to be present at the build ings Monday morning to remove their belongings. Mr. Filer said that the schools would not run on a tuition basis and that the board did not even have money to pay the teachers their past week's salary. Bandits Hold Up Mail Trucks and Steal 21 Sacks (Ilr AnniX'Intt'd Prran.t Detroit, Oct. 7. A mail truck carrying pouches to the main post ollice from the Detroit Windsor ferry dock Vas held up late tonight. Post office em ployes said 21 sacks, were taken. Two of them contained register ed mail which it was believed included teh day's Receipts at the Windsor race track. The rob bers blocked the street with two automobiles ) they ) occupied, transferred the pouches to their car, after holding up the truck driver, and escaped. hotel accomodations. Reduction in the tax on candy to three per cent, with elimination of the committee proposal for a ten per cent, tax on candy selling at whole sale for mere than 40 cents a pound. The other excise provisions of th2 senate bill would stand including re peal of the excess profits tax next January 1, a flat tax of 15 per cent. on corporation incomes and increased exemptions for heads of familise and on a'ceount of dependents. Opposition to the proposed in crease in the sur tax rates developed today among a group of senators from eastern states and they were understood to. be preparing to wage an active fight against a 50 per cent, maximum. There also was some op position among the senators to in crease estate tax rates. if credit to the farmers by the as sociation for seed and fertilizer, which is to be purchased by the as sociation in bulk. He stated that the plan also provided for the financing of auxiliary corporations, to be own ed by the association, to operate loading and grading stations. The loading and grading, which are now done by private corporations, add greatly to the price of potatoes, amounting to about 14 cents a sack of 150 pounds. "An indication of the stability with which the farmers' potato co-operative functions in New Jersey," said Mr. Langner, "is the fact that in the last year only two out of 600 mem bers failed to keep their contracts with their own association. This is a highly important and significant fact when it is explained that the bnsis of the proposed credits will be the association's contract with the farmer. In oth.;r words, the fanner will bind his cop over to his asso ciation in order that it may be used as a security for the credits provided for." : .
