House Group Starts
Work on Tax Bill;
Sales Levy Forecast
Proposals For Higher
Corporation Returns
To Come Up First
*> h* AMocistnl Pr*»*
With an anxious eye on the
White House the House Ways
and Means Committee started
work today on a new tax bill
which many House members said
likely would contain some form
of general sales tax.
President Roosevelt plans to send
a message to Congress next week
discussing means of retarding the
rise In living costs and. informed
sources said, the necessity of con
trolling unusual excess profit* in
war Industries
Program Still Indefinite.
Members said that until the mes
sage is received, they would not
know definitely whether they would
be expected to use as a base for the
bill the 17,610.000.000 tax recom
mendations of Secretary Morgen
thau on which seven weeks of hear
ings were concluded last week
As advance speculation on the
nature of the program spread over
a wide range of possibilities. White
House Secretary Stephen Early told
a press conference today that he
did not believe any portion of the
program has yet reached a point
of final determination.
In order that he may have suffi
cient time to complete his message
to the Congress and his anticipated
radio address to the Nation. Presi
dent Roosevelt has directed that
his appointments for the remainder
of the week and the week end be
on a strict "must” basis.
Corporation Tax Is Ip First.
Despite lack of concrete recom
mandations. Ways and Means Com
mittee decided to adhere to its plan
of starting work today, taking up
first the Treasury Department’s re
quest for $3,000,000,000 in new reve
nue for corporations chiefly by add
ing a 31 per cent surtax to the pres
ent 24 per cent normal tax, then in
crease excess profits rates 15 per
centage points above the present
scale of 35 to 60 per cent .
Congress moved a step closer to
writing a profit limitation formula
of its own yesterday when the House
passed and sent to the Senate a $19.
000.000,000 war appropriation bill
carry ing a rider giving the War and
Navy Departments and the Maritime
Commission authority to renegotiate
war contracts in which profits were
found to be excessive
Mr. Morgenthau also recommend
ed that individuals be required to
pay $3,000,000,000 more in taxes, a
burden that would fall most heavily
on the middle-income brackets, and
that excise levies be increased by
$1,340,000,000.
Several members predicted pri
vately that the committee would
find it could not equitably follow
those proposals 100 per cent, al
though the same general tax sources
might continue to be tapped.
Sales Tax Seen Necessary.
“When we get through, we will
probably find that we will have only
a $5,000,000,000 or perhaps $6,000.
000,000 bill; then it will be a ques
tion of whether we will have to go
to a sales tax to make up the differ
ence," one influential member said
A survey showed that most of
the members favored a sales tax,
but there was little agreement on
its form. Some preferred a manu
facturers’ levy, to avoid the rela
tively high cost of administering a
retail tax. Others favored the lat
ter type to avoid ’’pyramiding" of
a tax on manufacturers by the time
the article reached the "consumer.
The Treasury Department, which
has opposed either form, neverthe
less estimated for the committee
that a 5 per cent retail tax on all
commodities except war. Federal
and State purchases, would yield
$2,469,000,000.
Chairman May of the House
Military Affairs Committee intro
duced legislation yesterday to allow
the President to fix prices, license
industry and draft all the Nation's
man power during the war.
$1,919,000 Contract Let
For Barry Farm Dwellings
A contract has been approved for
erection of Barry Farm Dwellings.
442-unit housing project planned for

Public Housing Authority announced
today.
The development will be located

The SI.919.000 contract for the
ptoject was let to Justin C. O’Brien
Co Inc., New York. Requirements

the remaining 217 in 254 days

Stamps for Beauty Prize
HONOLULU ■••Fi—All that argu
ment about which soldier has the
prettiest "girl left behind" stirred
the service newspaper Midpacifican
to action. It announced a contest,
challenged pndeful sweethearts to

Embassy
(Continued From First Page >
dence at a press conference today
that the program of the Laval re
gime was contrary to the real senti
ment of the French people.
Mr. Hull authorized direct quota
tion of his remarks which were re
leased as follows:
"I might reiterate that I have the
fullest confidence in the patriotism
and the wisdom and the love of
liberty of the French people.
'It is in the light of these char
acteristics which they unquestion
ably possess that it is tragic to see
an attempt to seize the leadership
of the French people by elements
at Vichy which are avowedly in
favor of a surrender to the Axis
nations contrary to any real French
sentiment to that effect.”
