Don't Wail The Radia SALES IlIL FACES ATTAKS Levy Plan to Pay Vetirane' Award Drawing Fir From Opponents of Measure. By A, O. HAYWARD, Ensa1sedima News ger19e6. Obstacles loomed today in the yeti ot the proposed sales taxs cngres evet ifreenue riUsd by i new levy shus be diverted early to the payment of a sesh to veterans of the world war. ts of the sals tax are be. to aoUdify their lines for a to the finish against the adp. ion of this form of taxtio as a pat of the present tax plan of the Govern ment even as an expeulment for, a specifie purpose. Bees to bet Aeiea. Soldier bonus legislation is almoest certain to pass Congress before the end of the present session, but a tax plan to make It effective is most Un. Congressman Towner (Rep.) of - today that the bonus might be passed as straight legisa. tion, carrying no plan for meeting the obliation which the Government would assume. Under this arrange ment It would be left to the Treasury Department to work out a scheme for the payment of the bonus. Other Republican leaders expressed the m e thought as Towner. Attention was invited to the fact that the Secretary of the Treasury has authoritty to Issue $500,000,000 new bonds. This authority was grant. ed in the last tax bill. Interest pay. ments on foreign obligations was de ferred only unul next May, and after that thm interest payments are ex peoted to be made In sums that will produce a respectable total by Jan. uary 1VM. .O. P. Sbhma Extra Tax. It was intimated that from these two possible sources of revenue suf fcient funds might be obtained to pay a soldiers' bonus. Such a plan would obviate recourse to a new end special tax for the purpose. Additional tax levies are shunned by the Republican majority In Congress in view of next fall's election. Republican opponents of the sale tax claim to be in a majority in the House. At a Republican caucus early last spring every form of sales tax was rejected by a decisive vote. A me jority of Democratic members are also on record in opposition to a sales tax. They say that sentiment in the Hous has not changed materially with r' speot to the new livy. Ia the Senate thirty-four Repub cans have declared themselves frot time to time as favoring a sales ta at least as an experiment, but ther are some RepubUcan Senators who are hostile to it. Most of the Demo cratic Senators are believed to be opposed to tax, and they have already demonstrated that In a combination, with a small group of Republican Senators they have the ability to shoot a Republican tax bill full of holes. It Is understood that a soldiers' bonus bill with a sales tax plan in coporated will be reported by Re publican members of the House Ways and Moans Committee some time in February. The 'proposed legislation will have to go to a House Republican caucus for ratification. The action of the caucus on the sales tax as Wl as later action by the House is most un certain. tT tor Bursts er The wi es Atbm sot only makes a ad lay eloe to the todmb asea.3ss eIIbu ag' toabsbe aao I asa.t.
