THE WASHINGTON TDDES, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER i; 1917.
$29,01,000,000 APPROPRIATION FOR WARTOBEASKEDi THE CITY'S SOCIAL SIDE W0RK0NSUNDAY Staggering revenue and taxation Problems face the coming regular salon of Congress. Tfot less than $50,000,000,000 will In all probability be needed to enable the United States to carry on the first two years of the war. This means that the coming regu lar session, which meets the first Monday In December, must devise revenue and make appropriations of something like J29.000.000.000. The extra session of Congress which closed recently took steps to " finance the war for the first year. In other words. It has looked after the financing for the current fiscal year. This fiscal year ends next June 30. It was necessary to provide about J21.000.000.000 for the current fiscal year. . But the regular session will have ''to give attention to financing the I war for the fiscal year which begins next July 1. This will be a. stupend ous task. In all likelihood, more money will he needed to carry on the war the second' year than the first year. Hence the estimate of f29.000.000.000. or J60.000.000.000 for two years of war. does not appear out of place. The hard blow at Italy Just struck by the Teuton forces will be a factor In compelling the United States to multiply Its preparations and enlarge lis expenditures. A great fight Is ahead In Congress over efforts to make great Incomes and war profits bear a larger part of the burden of war. A new tax bill wPl be framed. It will supplement the existing tax laws. It is expected to call for about $2,600,000,000 annually, or substan tially the same as the September bill. The Administration will launch such a bill soon after the session opena Many new miscellaneous taxes will be proposed and much larger levies on great wealth. Of course, large bond Issues will be proposed as wcl as more taxes. Bond Issues In two years may amount to $40,000,000,000. Perhaps 15,000,000.000 of the total expenditures of this Government will go lnvloans to the allies. Efforts will be made to repeal aome of the present tax provisions, such as 3-cent postage and Increase In second-class rates.
