Need Of Change
In Tax Set-Ip
Cited By Roper
Secretary Of Commerce Is
Confident That Utilities
Dilemma Will Be Solved:
CHICAGO, Dec. 1.-(P)-Secretary
of Commerce Daniel C. Roper cited
the "need of a general revision of
our entire tax structure" in a mes-
sage to the nation's business men
He expressed confidence the "util-
ities dilemma" would be solved, ad-
vocated equal responsibility between
labor organizations and management,
stressed the importance of reducing
the national debt as well as balancing
the budget, espoused "immediate and
constructive" treatment of the rail-:
road's financial problems and hailed
the projected building construction
The Secretary outlined his views
in an address prepared for delivery
before the Commerce Department's
business advisory council.
To the business and industry execu-!
tives who are members of the coun-
cil, President Roosevelt sent a tele-
gram which said in part:
"I am looking forward to meeting
with all of you at the earliest prac-
ticable date so we may have the op-
portunity of talking over the problems
that affect us so vitally. I am con-
fident that appropriate action can
lead to increased employment and
more effective purchasing power in
the hands of great masses of people
still without adequate income."
Discussing the tax on undistributed
corporate earnings, Mr. Roper said:
"Treasury records indicate that the
tax did lead to a market increase in
the percentage of corporate profits
disbursed as dividends during 1936
and there is evidence to show that theJ
the tax also caused increases in cor-
porate operating expenses in the area
of wages, bonuses, advertising, main-
tenance, research, etc.
"It is already evident that such
situations are receiving the sympa-
thetic consideration of the Treasury
in its recommendations to Congress
on the revision of the 1936 Revenue
Act, as indicated by Secretary Mor-
genthau's recent statement and in the
President's message to Congress on
Nov. 15."1
Public utilities, he said, were "con-
cerned with the degree to which gov-
ernment competition may make it im-
possible for operating companies to
earn a fair return on capital invested
while providing for expansion and
replacement" and with the effect ofE
the "death sentence" on the equities(
of holding companies.I

Murphy said today that he would
place Michigan's "growing" relief
needs ahead of a balanced budget.
The Governor said he had asked
welfare agencies for an "appraisal"
of relief needs and had, as a first
step in meeting them, obtained fed-
eral assurances that at least 5,000 ad-
ditional WPA jobs would be made
available in this state.
Murphy predicted that 10,000 more
WPA jobs would be provided this
month if the relief problem justified
such a course. A further expansion
of the work would be possible in Jan-
uary, he said.
Recent Layoffs Hurt
The Governor asserted lay-offs at-
tributable to the current recession
have deprived approximately 10,000
workers in automobile factories and.
allied industries in the Detroit area
of their jobs.
"This condition may not grow
greatly," he added.
"I don't want a problem like this
exaggerated," Murphy told newspa-
cermen in a press conference today,
"but I do want it met. It isn't a dif-
ficult problem-it isn't anything like
relief problems the government has.
been called upon to meet before.
"The state could, perhaps, get by
this year just the way we had
planned. But the fact remains that
there is a relief problem that is larger
than we expected and it is growing.
The sensible thing to do is to appraisej
it exactly.
To Have Reasonable Policy
"It will be the policy of this govern-
ment to reasonably meet that prob-
lem, whatever it may be. We are
not going to permit distress and suf-
fering in this state."
He pointed out that financial ob-
servers were predicting a business
boom that would contribute through
the winter when the Legislature ap-
propriated $8,000,000 for welfare pur-
poses, instead of granting requests
which totalled $10,000,000.
"The state," he said, "may find it
necessary to increase its allotment.
The Federal Government must be
more generous with Michigan. And,
local communities will have to muster j
all of the assistance possible."
George F. Granger, Emergency Re-
lief Administrator, said the relief case
load in Michigan reached a low point
of 45,000 on October 8, but now is
above the 50,000 mark. In addition
to the ERA case load 42,000 persons
werehemployed on WPA jobs and"58,-
000 received old age assistance.
A new analysis of the act estab-
lishing the University of Michigan in
1817 is presented in a newly published
volume of historical essays from the
University Press. The analysis, by
Dr. Egbert R. Isbell, assistant editor
of the University Press, is made in

Fire destroyed the $20,000 home of
Mr. and Mrs. John T. Knapp at 4088

and caused the death of a nearby

from excitement.
Sheriff's officers and state police1
were unable to check the flames, al-
though a volunteer bucket brigade
saved the garage. The cause of the
fire was undetermined, but it -appar-

to the basement.

from her home at 4040 Washtenaw
