Central Frwm Staff Writer
Washington. Juno 14.- In another
10 days or a fortnight the average
American will begin to realize that
hi* pocket money has ceased to last
him nearly so long as it does now.
Perhaps it will be quite awhile after
that before it occur* to him to place
responsibility for the Increased Brain
upon the new taxes.
This Is because the tax schedule was
cunningly devised to tap the average
individual only triflingly per trana
»ction—Just a cent or two here and
there: a sum too small .In each inr
'tance. for him to consider worthy
his notice.
Very rich folk, to be sure, will
know at once that they are hhrd hit.

CONGRESS EXPECTS
TO FIND WAY OUT
Break For Solution of Prob

Not Worrying
Whi=hington, June 14. (AP)
Though burdened with a previous load
of problems demanding solution, con
gressional leaders looked today for an
early’ break to solve the most dif
ficult questionings.
The Senate spokesmen who yester
day clamored and bickered over the
reported $150,000,000 to $200,000,000 gap
between revenue and expenditure,
showed themselves fundamentally un
disturbed and inclined to believe that
by the time the economy bill is com
pleted and curtailed, appropriation
bills are enacted the budget will be
substantially balanced.
There was an expectation that the
impasse between House and Senate
o» unemployment relief would be
cleared up to some extent by the Sen
ate Banking Committee. It met to
consider the Garner $2,300,000,000 re
lief fund and public works bills, and
♦ here were hopes it would report this
measure out with the Senatg Demo
cratic relief plans attached as a sub
stitute. This would leave to eventual
conference on the Garner bill, a step
demanded by the House.

two hours.

Its half filled galleries got hardly a

The w*{ and dry issue was brought
officially to the notice of the assem
