Further Action Postponed
Thqir report asserted, however, that
the bill "will take care of the Pres-
ident's request until the next session
of Congress, which canhthen act more
intelligently in the light of the con-
ditions then existing."
In contrast to that intimation of
a tax bill after the elections when
new levies will be a less weighty po-
litical problem, some Democrats on
the Senate Finance Committee fore-
cast that the present bill might be
broadened to bring it into line with
the presidential revenue suggestions.

to meet privately tomorrow to scrut-
inize the bill carefully with the help

May Consider Processing Taxes
Some members were talking of
tapping additional sources of tempo-
rary revenue to produce $100,000,000
to $150,000,000 annually for three
years. That they may consider new
processing taxes has been admitted
for some time. Although these were
suggested by the President, the House
Ways and Means Committee ignored
House Democratic leaders, pressing
for speed on legislation holding the
key to congressional adjournment,
agreed to sidetrack all other con-
troversial questions until the House
passes the tax, relief and naval ap-
propriation bills.

Ann Arbor police yesterday ar-

and George Gillen, 17 years old, for
the theft of an automobile belonging
to Edmund Wright, 411 E. Jefferson,
which the two boys are alleged to
have driven away and stripped April

night it was stolen, and a radio, tail
light and floor mat which they re-
moved were recovered from them by
the police yesterday.
Arraigned before Judge Jay H.

driving away an automobile," the two
