From Tax Rise Feared By U. S. Chamber •y »h« A»s«iot#d Prm A tax increase now might touch off “an inflationary re volt,” an official of the United States Chamber of Commerce declared today. Asserting that taxes already are too high, the chamber's director of economic research. Dr. Emerson P. Schmidt, told a Senate-House Eco nomic Subcommittee: "If Congress imposes new taxes along with the inevitable increase in 1949 in State and local taxes, the American people may not sit idly by.” The congressional group, headed by Senator Flanders, Republican, of Vermont, is seeking answers to the question: "Are profits too high?” Taxes Take 25% of Income. The Commerce Department added its voice to the debate yesterday in a report w hich said that while profits are higher than ever—hitting a rate of $21,700,000,000 a year after taxes in the third quarter of 1948—they aren't as high as they sound because the rest of the Nation's economy is operating at a record level, too. Interest in the controversy has been sharpened by the possibility that President Truman might ask Congress for a third time to restore the excess profits tax—both to in crease Federal revenues and to dis courage inflation by taking much of ithe profit out of price boost. On that point, Mr. Schmidt said in his prepared testimony: “Objective experience in numerous countries in the world shows that when once the total tax-take ap proaches or equals 25 per cent of the national income, the democratic state goes into an inflationary revolt. This seems to be an economic la%. "Federal, State and local taxes now absorb 25 per cent of our in come—the critical level. Just why 25 per cent should be the critical level is not clear, but evidence sup ports it.” He added: “The notion that taxes on ‘busi ness’ or corporations affect only in vestors of stockholders is not valid and can become a dangerous de lusion in terms of the people's wel- i fare.” Pruned Expenditures Urged. The greatest contribution the Gov ernment could make toward stabiliz ing the Nation's economy and low ering prices, he said, would be “vig orous pruning of inflated Govern ment expenditures." In its official magazine. Survey of Current Business, the Commerce Department cited these figures to show that the Nation's entire econy om, as measured by national income and production, is at its highest rate in history: National income reached an esti mated $224,000,000,000 for the entire year The rate in the third quar ter had climbed to $227,300,000,000. Gross national product (the mar ket value of all goods and services produced) was around $253,000,000, 000 far the year. This exceeds even the peak of war production, but in cludes price rises as well as pro duction gains. * Profits tO Per Cent Higher. Profits in the July-September quarter were 20 per cent higher than a year ago and 6 per cent higher than in the preceding quarter—“far above either the prewar period or 1928.” But, the report added, the 6 per cent increase dwindles to 3 per cent when allowance is made for the fact that inventory supplies were being used up which would cost consider ably more to replace because of the inflationary movement. The congressional committee heard testimony yesterday that General Motors’ postwar profits have failed to keep pace with the increased vol ume of business, and have increased less than wages. M. E. Coyle. GM executive vice president, testified that General Motors automobile list prices, in cluding 1949 models, have increased! 75 per cent above the 1941 level, as compared with an average increase of 89 per cent for the rest of the Industry. Material Price* Doubled. At the same time, prices of some of the raw materials have in creased 100 per cent, he said. Mr. Coyle told the committee stockholders have received 55 per cent of earnings since the end of the war, as compared with 85 per cent in the period immediately prior to the war, even though $223, 000,000 of new capital was secured from outside sources. Mr. Coyle also told the committee that automobiles are a better buy today than at any time in the past. Not only can the average worker afford to buy more car with his labor today that formerly, Mr. Coyle told the committee, but more people can buy cars than ever before. "Inflation has pushed up prices of postwar automobiles as it has pushed up prices of other products,” Mr. Coyle told the committee. “To what extent has the value the cus tomer gets for his automobile dollar been affected from a long-term viewpoint?” In answering his own question, Mr. Coyle produced a picture of a 1929 Buick four-door sedan and a picture of a 1948 Chevrolet, four door sedan. The Buick was priced In 1929 at $1,320, the manufacturer’s list price, and the Chevrolet is now 1929 1948 BUCK CHEVROLET 1929 Mg RUCK DM Manufacturers' List Price...... *1320 (1280 Horsepower. 74.0 00.0 Maximum Speed... 64.75yi 814 mpb Fuel Economy (Miles par Galon-301110 14.7 22.7 Curb We.^ht. 3,764k 3225k Number of Cylinders. 6 8 Wheelbase....... 11575' 116' Shoulder Room-front 4*5' 54.1’ Shoulder Room - Rear . 52.0' 544T KpRoom -Front.47.4' 580' Hip Room •• Rear.415' 485' Head Room-Front...! 365' 3Z3’ Head Room-Rear.... 350* 356' leg Room -Front.... 402' 424' lag Room-Rear.... 41.6' 353* Overall Width (fenders or Body).... 613' 724' Overall Height (loaded 5 IteseigersV. 725' 641' OLD AND NEW CARS COMPARED—This exhibit was presented yesterday before a Senate-House Economic Subcommittee by M.

The newspaper asserted the vil lagers were oppressed by Western Berlin authorities and forced to vote in the Communist-boycotted election for a new government of Greater Berlin December S. Records show 98 per cent of the voters In Stolpe voted. Taegliche Rundschau concluded that, with reincorporation of Stolpe in the Soviet zone, villagers would join the fight against "the Schu macher clique”—a reference to the German Socialist Party. Stolpe s return was demanded by the Soviet military command in connection with the French demoli tion last week of two towers of the Russian - controlled Radio Berlin near Tegal Airfield, inside the French sector. Miners Defeat Reds. Meanwhile, Gen. Lucius D. Clay said in his semimonthly report to day that Western Germany's Com munists suffered a "major defeat” at a union conference of miners in the British and American zones. The convention met from Novem ber 28 to December 2. The report said the Communists failed to re elect three Important officers and their major proposals were defeated. Willi Agatz, vice president of the British zone's mining union, was among those defeated for re-election. “Since British zone delegates to this convention far outnumbered those from the United States zone,” the report said, "Agatz’s defeat repre sented repudiation by his own or ganization.” A Communist proposal to with draw the miners' two representatives from the German coal mining direc torate was rejected by the conven tion. The convention urged in stead greater miners’ representation on the directorate and close co operation with it. Prospecting for Uranium Encouraged by Canada •y th« Au«iot»d Prw* OTTAWA, Dec. 21.—The Canad ian government is encouraging pri vate prospecting for uranium. Such prospecting already has made “sev eral discoveries that appear to be important,” Trade Minister C. D. Howe said yesterday. He announced that two years have been added to the period in which the government will guaran tee a floor price for uranium. That means prospectors can be assured of set prices for any uranium ores and concentrates they find up to March 31. 1955. The original terms have not been changed. Under them the govern ment-owned Eldorado Mining & Refining, Ltd., will buy acceptable ores and concentrates with a min imum uranium content equivalent to TO per cent by weight of uranium oxide. The crown company will pay a minimum of $2.75 a pound of contained uranium oxide. Marshall 'Doing Fine'; May Leave Hospital Soon Secretary of State Marshall Is “doing fine” in his recuperation at Walter Reed Hospital after a kidney operation there two weeks ago, hos pital authorities said today. It remained uncertain whether he would leave the hospital to be home for Christmas. He probably would benefit by completing his convales cence in the hospital, it was said there, although he probably could go home this week end if he insisted. Gen. Marshall’s condition was de scribed as the "very best.” He has been able to spend part of his time out of bed for several days. *■ Evening Wear Accessories We carry a full stock to give you a complete choice Whit* Waistcoat* .8.50 Tuxad* Shirts .5.95 Full Dross Shirts.6.00 *nd 6.50 Formal Bow Ti*s (black, whit*, maroon). .. .1.50 Black Waistcoats, Formal Studs and Link Sets, Vest Buttons, Cumba Bands, Wing Collars, Key Chains, Boutonnieres.

Hayne said the man was walking in the street and his clothes blended ao perfectly with the dark and slippery pavement that he could not see him until the automobile was almost upon him. William J. Dunham, 61, a District government auditor, and tyr wife, Mrs. Lavina Dunham, 65, of 1293 Brentwcjod road N.E., narrowly escaped'death last night when their automobile skidded on the Sixteenth Street Lion Bridge, mounted the sidewalk and knocked out a length of railing. The car hung on the sidewalk with its nose pointed toward the ravine more than 50 feet below. Policeman Hurt Bicycling. Mr. Dunham suffered probable fractured ribs and Mrs. Dunham suffered a fractured nose and cuts about her face. Police Pvt. John W. Harrison, col ored, 36, of 212 W afreet N.W., was injured while on an off-duty bicycle ride. His bicycle and an automo bile, which police reported was driven by Owen W.

Winter's arrival also marks the year's shortest day from sunup to sundown. The actual difference cuts only three seconds from yesterday's daylight length and only one sec ond from tomorrows. The sun was scheduled for an ap pearance at 7:24 a.m. and for a set ting at 4:49 p.m. today, adding up to 9 hours and 25 minutes of day light. The 5:45 pm. starting time for winter is the exact instant the sun will cease Its southward journey and turn north again, according to the United States Naval Observatory. Most transportation facilities were back to normal today, both in the District and intercity. Airlines re sumed flights to New York City last night and trains and buses were nearly on schedule between here and New York. Some slippery spots disturbed motorists as melting snows turned i into ice overnight. One of the danger spots was Klingle Bridge at Porter street N.W., where two motorcycle policemen were called to assist traffic. Police reported about 200 tickets were given motorists charged with violating no-parking restrictions in effect during periods of snow. Dr. Albert F. Zahm, 86, Aeronautical Pioneer, Injured by Taxicab Dr. Albert F. Zahm, 86, one of j the deans of aeronautical engineer ing in America, was in an "unde termined” condition at Emergency Hospital today after he was struck by a taxicab last night on the slippery street in front of the Cos mos Club, 1500 block of H street N.W. Dr. Zahm, according to the police report, slipped when approaching the street car loading platform and a passing taxicab ran over one leg. His condition was regarded as se rious because of his advanced age. The scientist, who had lived at the Cosmos Club for the last 25 years, was one of a small group of pioneers who helped develop the modern airplane. He was versed in all phases of aeronautical research, including early balloons, gliders, “air screws,” wind tunnels and stress analysis. Retired in 1946. Dr. Zahm retired in 1946 after 16 years as chief of the aeronautics division of the Library of Congress, where he occupied the Guggenheim chair of aeronautics. He retained a study room there and continued his work in an advisory capacity. From 1917 to 1929 Dr. Zahm was director of the Aerodynamical Lab oratory of the Navy, and from 1914 to 1917 served as chief research engineer for the Curtiss Aeroplane Co. A graduate of Notre Dame with the class of 1883, Dr. Zahm holds postgraduate degrees in math ematics and engineering from Cor nell, Johns Hopkins and Catholic University. Awarded Laetare Medal. As early as 1893, Dr. Zahm was appointed a delegate to the Inter national Conference on Aerial Nav igation. While a college student, he constructed flying models, full-scale gliders and experimented with air craft motors, jet propulsion for air craft and "air screws.” Dr. Zahm was awarded the Lae tare Medal by Notre Dame in 1925 and five years later received the Mendel Medal at Villanova College. He is the author of numerous technical papers on aerodynamics and the early development of the art of flight by heavier-than-air machines. Eire (Continued Prom First Page.) desirability of walking alone, out side the Empire. But the final step —the repeal act—was not intro doced in the Eire Parliament until last November 17. A probable fac tor in the delay was the hope that the six northern counties might join in a united Ireland. But today the so-called Protestant counties remain steadfast with Britain. Despite the formal severance of the last political link, both British and Irish leaders have forecast con tinued close co-operation. But there are some obstacles ahead—trade and political issues—not the least of which is the divided south and north which Mr. de Valera refers to as “the partition of Ireland.” In explaining the repeal bill. Prime Minister Costello said: “Far from creating ill-will between Brit ain and Ireland, this bill will draw the two countries mere closely to gether." Hhe proposed to grant British Commonwealth citizens rights in Eire in proportion to the rights granted Irish citizens in the Com monwealth. 1 Attlee Responds. Next day, Prime Minister Clement Attlee in the British House of Com mons said his government would not look on the Irish law “as placing Eire in the category of foreign countries or Eire citizens in the category of foreigners.” He said any Irishman will be reg-1 lstered as a British citizen on appli cation to the Home Secretary, pro-! vided the Irishman knows English,! is of good character and is a gov ernment employe, or has been a resident of Britain or a British col ony for a year. He said this is possible under the 1948 British Na tionality Act. Oppositoin Leader Winston Churchill said his Con servative Party would not support Mr. Attlee’s Irish policy. Still in doubt is what will happen to trade relations. British govern ment leaders say they propose to grant Eire special trade privileges just as though she had remained in the Commonwealth. But countries with “moet favored nation” clauses in their trade trea ties with Britain might claim the same privileges on the ground that their legal connection with Britain was just as strong as Eire’s.
