Brief Contends Confirmation of
Nomination Was Final
and Binding.
WASHINGTON, May 23.-(AP)-The
reply of Chairman George Otisl
Smith of the power commission to
the Senate's effort to 6ust him was
filed today in the District of Co-
lumbia Supreme Court.
A brief prepared by former Sen-
ator George Wharton Pepper con-
tended that "as interpreted 'by es~
talilished practice" the original
confirmation of Smith's nomina-
tion had been final and binding.
He argued that the later recon-
sideration and rejection of the
nomination by the Senate was "ir-
relevant and immaterial."
Although Pepper admitted the
existence of Senate rules which
providenfor reconsideration of ap-
proved nominations within two days
he contended that the long estab-
lished system of notifying the Pres-
ident upoA the day of confirmation
made that action irrevocable.

Says Government Income Varies
With 'Fluctuations of
Business Cycle,
WASHINGTON, May 23.-(iP)-
Revision of the tax system to pro-
vide a r6gular flow of revenue was.
suggested tonight by Andrew W.
Mellon, Secretary of the Treasury.
In an address over the Washing-
ton Star radio forum, Secretary
Mellon pointed out that under the
present system the Government's
income fluctuates with the upward
or downward swing of business.
This is due, he added, "to the
fact that we rely for two-thirds of
our tax revenue on the income tax,
which is subject to sweeping varia-
"The situation in which we find
ourselves at present, with a serious
deficit facing us at the end of the
year," he said, "{raises the question
as to whether we have yet develop-
ed a sufficiently well-balanced sys-
tem to provide the revenues on
which the Government must be
able to count from year to year."
Secretary Mellon said the pros-
pective deficit, estimated at $800,-
000,000 for the end of the fiscal
year, was being met through bor-
rowing. He added, however, that
was "only a temporary expedient."

Problem of 'Taking the Profit
Out of War' Studied by
Its Members.
WASHINGTON, May 23.-(iP)-A
variety of plans for "taking the
profit out of war" faced members
of the war policies commission to-
day as they began to study the
testimony taken during extended
hearings, preparatory to reporting
to Congress in December. The com-
mission is composed of cabinet
members and representatives of the
House and Senate.
, The most comprehensive plan
was the proposal from Bernard M.
Baruch, chairman of the war in-
dustries board during the last cpn-
flict, for governmental control of
industry through an agency similar
to the one he headed.
The plan calls for peace-time
iegislation- to give the president
power at the outbreak of a war, to
freeze all prices, subject to later
