House Plan Was Bad. Senator Simmons declared that the ^ committee proposes a specific war profits and not an excess profits tax. The house standard is "wholly unsat isfactory, artificial and arbitrary." Reasons for Increasing corporation income taxes. Senator Simmon« gave as follows: "The necessity for increased revenue l-ec.'ime apparent on account of the large deficiency estimates for the army presented by the secretary of the treasury after the bill was recom mitted at my request as a result of the Smoot amendment to the food control bill." The proposed tax on corpora tions' undivided surplus, he declared, would more nearly 1*alance the rela tive conditions as between corpora tions, partnerships and Individual» with respect to income surtaxes*' Regarding elimination of the house general 10 per cent ad valorem tariff levy Mr. Simmons said: "While the government would real ize from these tariff levier $200.000. 000 the domestic producers of this country* would a» a result collect out of the people an amount three or four times greater than the amount which it ts estimated the government will re ceive from the tax." The reduced tobacco taxes, he said, woubl raise the same revenues as the house rates without burdening either producer» or consumers Liquor rates he added, were raised because the food control laws provisions stopping man ufacture of whiskey made It advisable to find other revenue source». Mr Simmons' statement regarding the publishers' tax was: "Your committee decided to elim inate the house zone system because it was made clear to them that It la a tax which would be not only burden some but in a number of cases unjust to many valuable publications. Repre sentatives of practically all the great publications of the country appeared before the committee against this tax. The tax substituted by your committee is not a logical one. It must be con fessed. but It was the best your com mittee was able to devise in view of the present conditions of the publish ing business. - AONTANA FIRST STATE 10 DOUBLE ITS AflMV QUOTA -*1 from Page Or.* en b> little city of Itutte should raise ration, the city did 1 . 60 « better" and raised When they asked that $1,000,000 raised in support of the Liberty l«*i the Butte citizens came to the fr again and subscribed their share the loan eight tl Red the rl tv regular army has Butte too raising <»f i state.
