COP
(Continued From Page One)
his answer to arguments made
for tax reduction:
1. Despite many gloomy precjc
tions, there is no convincing evi
dence that a recession is im
minent.” The Senate Finance
committee in its report on the
blil had said it would be a hedge
against a recession.
2. “Thpre is no shortage of
funds” for ‘‘necessary invest
ment and business expansion” so
a tax dut is not needed to release
money for that purpose, as many
witnesses contended in hearings.
3. The purchasing power of con
sumers should be increased by
ironing out ‘‘the disparity” be
tween prices and wages through
‘‘wise policies and improving prac
tices of business and labor;” cut
ting taxes “is not the proper way”
to do it. Retailers particularly had
urged lower taxes to boost purchas
ing power.
Only Reference
It was in this phase of his veto
message to the House that Mr.
Truman made his only reference
to the future tax reduction:

“The time for tax reduction will
come when general inflationary
pressures have ceased and the
structure of prices is on a more
stable basis than now prevails.
How long it will take for this point
to be reached is impossible to
predict.”
Republicans, fully expecting the
veto, charged that the adminis
tration wanted to put it off until
the 1948 campaign- year for politi
cal purposes.
In declaring that “sound fiscal
policy requires that existing tax
rates be maintained for the pres
ennt,” Mr. Truman mentioned
“heavy obligations growing out of
the war” still to be met, and the
nation’s “greatest responsibilities
for international relief and rehabili
tation.
His argument that surplus funds
should go for debt reduction in
stead of tax reduction ran thus:
“A time of high employment and
high prices, wages, and probits,
such as the present, calls for sur
plus and the aiyolication of all or
much of this surplus to the reduc
tion of the public debt. Continuing
public confidence in government fi
nances depends upon such a policy.
If the government does not reduce
the public debt during the most
active and inflationary periods,
there is little prospect of material
reduction at any time.”
Benefit Argument
His argument that the bill would
benefit the big taxpayers more
than those "in the low income
brackets” was this:
“Under H. R. 1, tax savings to
the average family with an income
of $2,500 would be less than $30,
while taxes on an income of $50,
000 would be ruduced by nearly
$5,000, and on an income of $500,
000 by nearly $60,000.
“Insofar as ‘take-home* pay is
concerned under H. R. 1, the fami
ly earning $2,500 would receive an
increase of only 1.2 percent; the
family with an income of $50,000
would receive an increase of 18.6
percent; ana the family with an
Income of $500,000 would receive
an increase of 62.3 percent.”
The President concluded with a
proposal that “a thoroughgoing re
vision of the tax system” be plan
ned. On personal income taxes,
he suggested planning not only for
changing the rate of taxes but the
amount of exemptions and other
factors. And he said "we should
also consider changes in excise
tax laws, gift and estate taxes,
(andi corporation taxes,” without
specifying whether he thinks these
should be higher or lower.
The House Ways and Means com
mittee, which originates tax legis
lation, already is making a study
of the whole revenue system with
a view to action next session. In
come tax reduction seems certain
to be brought up again at that
time, but the Republican leader
ship does not plan to try to put
through another tax cut bill at
this session.

Recounts Story
Landis recounted this story of
Capital’s flight 410 after it left
Pittsburgh for Washington:
At 5:53 p.m., Eastern Standard
Time, the pilot reported he was
over the Flintstone intersection (a
radio marker 88 miles southeast of
Pittsburgh' flying at 7,000 feet. One
minute later Airways Traffic con
trol (ATC) in Washington cleared
him to proceed to the Herndon
marker 'a radio marker familiar
to all airline pilots in this section)
where he was to hold or wait by
circling. ATC further adviSed him
that because of traffic congestion
in the Washington area he could
not expect clearance into the Wash
ington airport before 7:20 p.m.
At that time the ceiling in Wash
ington was 700 feet and visibility
was four miles. Over Martinsburg,
W. Va., about that time, the ceil
ing was 2.500 feet and visibility
was three miles.
The pilot acknowledged the mes
sage about proceeding to Herndon,
and three minutes later asked if
he could come in “on contact”
(that is within sight of the ground)
on the right hand side of the Ar
eola range.
(The Areola range is fairly new
and parallels the Herndon range
about 10 miles to the South. It was
installed to'relieve traffic conges
tion.)
Washington told him he was
cleared to use the Areola range if
he could fly contact at 2,500 feet
or less, adding that he was cleared
to come straight into the airport if
he could do that.
The plane captain acknowledged
the message at 6:03 p.m. and ac
knowledged again when he was told
to report every time he left a 1,000
foot level.
The pilot reported at 6:05 p.m.
that he was leaving 7,000 feet. Two
minutes later he reported leaving
6.000 feet and at 6:08 p.m. he re
ported being over Martinsburg, W.
Va. Almost immediately after
wards, he reported he was leaving
5.000 feet. At 6:10 he reported leav
ing-1 4,000 feet and at 6:13 p.m. he
reported leaving 3,000 feet.
Six minutes later, at 6:19 p.m.,
the Washington tower called and
asked for information. It received
no acknowledgement.
The average of four watches
found in the wreckage indicated
that the plane had crashed at 6:16
p.m. at a point about 1,500 feet
above sea level and 150 feet below
the crest of the mountain.
Landis said preliminary investi
gation showed that the plane was
in normal flying position with pow
er on when it struck. All control
surfaces have been accounted for
and there is no indication that
anything dropped off the airplane
before it struck. Visibility and ceil
ing were zero zero at that point at
the time, with fog and light show
ers.

Mrs. Miller, attractive mother of
two children, is a patient at Appa
lachian Hall, swanky mental insti
tution near Asheville.
Judge Bone refused to grant a
continuance for an indefinite peri
od of time. However, the judge
granted a continuance until the Au
gust term of Robeson Superior
court.
Victim Improves
In the meantime, the victim of
the unsuccessful plot, David Mill
er, continues to improve at his
father's home near Rowland.
Solicitor Carlyle said this after
noon that Garland Cottrell, young
former sailor, whom Mrs. Miller
named as the “other man” in the
case has not bpen questioned by
officers. He did not reveal wheth
er or not Cottrel would be ques
tioned or not.

Wait Joint Meeting
What action will be taken by
tlie commissioners and council
will depend upon a decision to be
reached at a joint meeting of the
commissioners, the city council
and the Chamber of Commerce
aviation committee, the latter
body having previously favored
the State Airlines petition.
Action was suggested last night
by City Councilman J. E. L. Wade
that an effort be made to obtain
the presence of Thomas Davis,
president of the Piedmont com
pany, for Wednesday when the
council meets. Davis’ presence
was in line with the opinion of
commissioners w’ho voted to defer
action until Davis coui^ present
his side cf the controversy.
Commissioner Harry Gardner at
yesterday’s meeting pressed for
the setting of a definite time for
the joint session, but. without suc
cess. Councilman Wade was in at
tendance at the meeting on an
other matter.
Gilbert, in his plea, said he be
lieved that the CAB decision “was
in error.” He and Farrell based
much of their argument on their
contention that the State firm
would establish headquarters of
their* line here, employ several
hundred local persons and bring a
huge revenue to this community.
They arguej that Piedmont pro
poses only to establish a ticket
office in Wilmington.
Matter Debatable
Commissioner Harry Gardner
declared that the entire matter
“is debatable” and that the com
missioners could not criticize a
decision of the examiners without
hearing Piedmont’s side of the
case.
Farrell’s rep’y was that Davis,
president of Piedmont, has had
two months to present his case.
“Don’t you think that is enough
time?” he asked.

HONORS DIVISION
Flag Of 101st Decorated
With Croix De Guerre
At Celebration
CARENTAN, France, June 16—
(ff)—Ten thousands persons
swarmed from the Normandy

At the Place Vauban, a huge
triumphal arch hac! been erected
and beneath it were two symbolic
graves, the Tricolor flying over

the other.
Atop the arch, 50 feet high, a

and guests gathered at the base.
Visits Cemeteries

its people.
PORTUGALREVOLT
PLOT DISCOVERED
Premier Salazar Announces
Smashing Of ‘Overthrow’
Conspiracy
LISBON. Portugal, June 16—(IP)
—The government of Premier An
tonio de Oliveira Salazar announc
ed yesterday it had smashed a
plot by “professional conspirators”
to gain control fo Portugal by mili
tary revolt.
a government communique, is
sued after a cabinet meeting said
L'i Army and Navy officers and
14 university professors allegedly
involved in the p'ot would be
purged.
The revolutionary conspiracy
tvas uncovered when secret files
of the plotters ware found and, the
government said, was connected
with recent anti-government inci
dents which included sabotage,
Communist outbursts, dock
strikes and student demonstra
tions.
The communique said “profes
sional conspirators” had influenc
ea Army ana iNavy oticers ana
that several groups had been or
ganized for the ultimate purpose
of promoting armed revolution
against the government.
Plotter’s Fight
The government indicated the
plot failed because the revolution
ists fought among themselves.
Although the communique did
not say how long the conspiracy
had been brewing, it declared the
government had been aware of it
for some time, but took no action
until saboteurs attempted to dam
age miliatry planes last April —
an occurrence that “proved too
much for the patience of the gov
ernment.”
Stating its determination to
eliminate “professional revolution
aries” from the military and civil
services, the government said the
first to be purged would be two
naval officers and 11 army offi
cers who have ben pensioned and
placed on inactive duty pending
possible further prosecution and
deportation.

Taylor, however, declared this
use of the term “lockout” was “en
tirely erroneous” and added that
“negotiations having been carried
on and an agreement not having
been reached, the union said ‘no
contract, no work.’ ”
The old agreement could have I
been extended temporarily under
its terms, he said.
Th 90,000-rnember NMU and the

paid American seamen are far
above those of any other nation.
The other three unions involved
are:
Inter national Longshoremen’s
and Warehousemen’s union (80.000)

This is what the meat packing industry’s net earnings
cost an average American family of four.
For this profit the meat industry—
Buys livestock and pays out millions of
dollars daily for it.
Operates plants, machinery and equipment
(employing over a quarter million people).
Prepares fresh meat, ham, bacon, sausage,
canned meats, etc.
Delivers meat, under refrigeration, a few blocks
or a thousand miles, to your store.
With all this service to you, the total net profits of the
meat packing companies make no appreciable differ
ence in the price you pay for a pound of meat.
Meat prices, whether up or down, are determined by
competition. Just as the more than 4,000 separate
meat packing companies compete with each other
in buying livestock and selling meat ... so millions of
shoppers select meat daily from the available supply
And at retail, meat cuts in large supply are priced
below cuts in limited supply. The supply pf one meat
or another may change greatly from week to week or
season to season. This results in meat prices going
up or down.
