The House appropriations chairman told the Ways and Means Committee yesterday that the Government must have reve nue to fight the war—but he doesn’t believe a Federal sales tax is the way to get it or that economies can meet the bill. “The real struggle for the Army is just beginning,’’ declared Repre sentative Cannon, Democrat, of Mis souri. “If the Army and Navy say they need more funds, we’re going to risk furnishing too much lather than too little too late.” He cautioned the committee against counting on any sharp re duction in military expenditures and said nonessential spending al ready has been cut to the bone—a reply to Republican demands that the Government can cut billions of dollars from its present cost. Does Not Indorse Treasury Plan. Mr. Cannon agreed with the ad ministration assertion that more tax Income is important. He did not, however, put his own approval on the Treasury’s program to bring in $10,500,000,000 In new revenue largely through higher Income, cor ; poration and excise taxes. Neither did his testimony provide [ any comfort for sales tax advocates who have asked the Ways and Means Committee to vote a 10 per cent— or at least 5 per cent—levy on all spending as a means of getting in some of the money the Treasury says it needs. "What are your views on a Federal sales tax?” asked Representative Robertson, Democrat, of Virginia, an advocate of the proposal. “Unquestionably the mass of the people are opposed,” replied Mr. Cannon. "It is unscientific and in advisable under any circumstances. It is not a tax in proportion to the ability to pay.” Another member of the Appropri ations Committee, Representative Dirsken, Republican, of Illinois, told the Ways and Means group he w'ould “find it difficult to reconcile myself to a sales tax.” Cannon Explains Needs. Explaining why more tax money will be needed, Mr. Cannon declared: "The war isn't won. The lives of many Americans and the early conclusion of the war depend on the adequate provision of founds to fight. I can't say how much economy is possible because not even the fighting forces know what they'll need.” Chairman Doughton of the Ways and Means Committee, discussing spending by the Government, said letters and telegrams from taxpay- j ers are pouring in with complaints i of money wasting in Washington. "These are from the people who ; pay the taxes,” he said. "They’re ! willing to pay, but they protest i against such large amounts when they think the money is- being wasted.” * Mr. Cannon replied that 100,000 jobholders already have been lopped off Federal payrolls, "and we ex pect to reduce drastically from now on—reduce to the irreducible min imum.” Willkie 'Continued From First Page.' Japanese in the Southwest Pacific. The war situation next year may easily determine what political fate, if any, lies before him. Up to the present, therefore, it is Willkie against the field for the Republican nomination. Tnis may be changed in the next few months* particularly after the presidential preferential primaries begin, if any other candidates show real strength. Mr. Willkie will address the Re publican “Freshman Club” of the 78th Congress at a dinner in the Continental Hotel Tuesday night. The invitation to Mr. Willkie to speak at the dinner was issued by Representative Arnold, Republican, of Missouri, who is serving his first term in the House. Mr. Arnold, an admirer of Mr. Willkie. said he be-' lieved that the St. Louis speech was a courageous and masterful state ment. The “freshmen” dinner will be attended by Republican Senators and Representatives, whether they be one-termers or of long service. While he is in Washington it is expected Mr. Willkie will confer with Republican leaders, including both Senator McNarv of Oregon and Rep resentative Martin of Massachusetts. Senator McNarv was his running mate in 1940 and Mr. Martin his campaign manager. Willkie Says 'Crabbers' Don't Mean GOP Votes ST. LOUIS, Oct. 16 (A>).—Wendell L. Willkie warned the Republican party today against the kind of thinking which would interpret “lit tle complaints” and "crabbing” against the Roosevelt administra tion in terms of Republican votes. “The people of the United States are in an earnest and serious mood, but many of them are inarticulate,” he said. “If you attempt to meas ure their real thoughts by their little flip remarks, you will be 100 per cent wrong.” Speaking inforrryilly at a meet ing of Republican women, he said victory in 1944 can only result irom an “affirmative” program and a well-knit party organization. 30 Pet. Tax Would Kill Stage, Says Bert Lytell By the Associated Press. Bert Lytell, president of Actors Equity, said yesterday»the Treasury's proposed 30 per cent tax on box office receipts would tax the legiti mate theater out of business. “There is no youth m the Amer ican theater today," the veteran actor told the House Ways and Means Committee. "One third of our membership is serving with the colors." He discussed the entertainments arranged by professional actors for the armed -forces throughout the world and said, “That work is vol untary. If we don’t have jobs we can’t do it. Buc if we add to the price of the theater we may very well kill it.’’ 1 WALTER LIPMANN ADDRESSES FUND RALLY—Mme.

The postwar world is being built by actions now, Mr. Lippmann de clared, as he urged the solicitors to strengthen the Allied union with fund contributions. He hoped, he said, that they would all “oppose any dividing of the present union” when the war is won. Herbert L. Willett, Jr., executive director of the fund, told the solici tors that it was particularly im portant to get large gifts the first time because no “repeat” solicita tions will be permitted this year. Second Appeals Banned. “That is bad campaign psychol ogy,” he said. “We would extend the campaign only for more cover age, not for second appeals to the same people.” Tlie large attendance yesterday, Coleman Jennings, chairman of the War Fund Events Events today and tomorrow in connection with the Commu nity War Fund are the fol lowing: Today. 6 p.m, Phyllis Wheatley YWCA—Organization meeting of District D, Metropolitan Di vision.

SI Years at Same Address Military Policemen Shot by Soldiers, Court Martial Told Br the Associated Press. PAIGNTON, Devon, England, Oct. 16.—A court martial trying 14 Amer ican colored soldiers on mutiny charges was told today that two mil itary police sergeants were shot by the men. In accusing the men of intent to ! murder, the prosecution said they j set out from camp carrying weapons ; and ammunition, and it was only by chance that their shots were low and hit the military policemen in the legs instead of more vital spots. They were said to have first ordered the policemen to put up their hands, which was done, and then shot them. Earlier the same night, a private testified, there had been trouble in the little Cornish town and later, after their return to camp, he said he saw the men set out in a forma tion of threes led by a sergeant carrying a tommy-gun. The accused men denied the alle gations that they marched from the camp to the town square where the shooting occurred and denied charges of shooting with intent to murder or making inflammatory statements attributed to them in signed affidavits offered by the prosecution. Defense counsel said the men were in a unit which had been re stricted to quarters since before leaving the United States. On the night of the incident, the defense said, there had been trouble between white and colored soldiers, and it was declared that 14 possible participants had been selected out of a large number. Most of them were innocent of taking part, the defense said. The trial was adjourned until to morrow without a finding.
