WASHINGTON ME. 3996 New Fight Shapes Up To Tack Profits Levy On General Tax Bill By th« Associated Press Representative Mills, Democrat, of Arkansas said today a corpora tion excess profits tax—which he vigorously supports—should be considered separately lest the $4,508,000,000 tax-boosting bill be delayed indefinitely. As the fight broke out anew on Capitol Hill to pin such a profits levy to the present tax bill, Mr. Mills told newsmen: ‘‘As strong as I have been for the adoption of an excess profits tax by the present Congress, I think it would be most inadvisable to adopt any such tax until the House Ways and Means Commit tee has had time to study it. There is no time for such study in the present bill.” Threat to Present Bill. Another protracted fight on the issue, Mr. Mills said, would mean that the general tax increase al ready voted by the Senate could not become effective on individual incomes October 1, as the bill pro vides. The bill is calculated to raise some $4,508,000,000 a year to help pay for higher defense costs. The new controversy shaped up when Representative Eberharter, Democrat, of Pennsylvania an nounced he would attempt to block further action on the gen eral tax bill until the House is 'given a chance to vote on an ex cess profits tax. Mr. Eberharter and several other House members have intro duced an amendment calling for a 95 per cent levy on profits of each corporation which—after a $10,000 exemption—exceed 1946 49 average earnings. The levy iwould be effective as of last July 1. Mr. Eberharter says it would 'yield about $6 billion a year at the present rate of corporation earnings. Pledged Action Next Session. The Senate approved the tax boosting bill last week after nar-1 rowly heading off immediate ex cess profits action there. In do ing so, it pledged itself to act early next year on such a tax, to be effective as of October 1 or July 1 of this year. Under normal procedure, the bill would go directly to a confer ence committee of Senators and House members, to work out differences between the Senate bill and the tax measure—ap proved by the House before the Korean war began—intended pri marily to reduce excise taxes. But Mr. Eberharter said he will seek to have the House instruct iits conferees to insist that an excess profits tax be tacked onto the bill. The showdown probably will occur next week wThen House members return from an informal 1 recess. ? : Cuban Sugar Center Has None in Stores; It Costs Too Much By th« Associated Press HAVANA, Cuba, Sept. 6.— The town of Cabaiguan, in the center of this number one sugar producing nation of the world, reported it was without sugar today. “For some days not a pound of refined sugar has been found in this town,’’ reported a correspondent for the news paper Avance.

Miller, retired assist ant superintendent of police and nationally known traffic expert, last night was given a testimonial dinner by the District Advisory Board of the American Automobile Association. District and civic leaders joined police officials and friends in the Mayflower Hotel to laud the foimer inspector, who retired Thursday because of physical dis ability. Inspector Miller, who is suffering from a back ailment, served 31 years on the force. He will leave Friday for Plaque mine, La., where he will spend the w’nter. Francis G. Addison, jr„ vice chairman of the advisory board, called Inspector Miller a “dis tinguished public servant” and added: “A measure of the quality of service” he rendered “is the fact tnat he twice refused promotion to assistant superintendent to stay with the Traffic Bureau.” Cited for Safety Record. Mr. Addison said the former police official is largely responsible for the fine traffic safety record of the District. The speaker also pointed to Mr. Miller’s “unfailing courtesy and co-operativeness.” Mr. Addison said an examina tion of Inspector Miller’s record showed he received seven official commendations and not a single complaint in his many years of service. The retired police official re ceived an illuminated scroll signed by those present and a cartoon, drawn by Jim Berryman, The Star cartoonist, which also was signed by the assemblage. Another who paid tribute to In spector Miller was Col. Franklin M. Kreml, director of the Traffic Institute of the International As sociation of Chiefs of Police. Inspector Walter T. Storm, as sistant superintendent and execu tive officer of the Metropolitan Police, represented Maj. Robert J. Barrett, superintendent, who could not attend. Efficiency, Loyalty Noted. Inspector Storm spoke of Maj. Barrett's regard for Inspector Miller and convened the police chief’s best wishes. "I think Inspector Miller was one of the most efficient, loyal and progressive police officials in the country today,” Inspector Storm commented. Others who paid tribute to In spector Miller included Brig. Gen. Gordon R. Young, Engineer Com missioner; Maj. Ernest W. Brown, former police superintendent; Representative Davis, Democrat, of Tennessee; Russell E. Singer, executive vice president of the AAA: Chief Judge Bolitha J.
