Gov't Taxes
On Securities
House Issue
Constitutional Amendment
Seen As Way Of Taxing
Tai. Exempt Securities
Borah Says Crop
Control Is 'Suieide'
WASHINGTON, Dec. 3.-(PA)-The
question of giving the tax collector
a chance at the income from federal,
state and municipal securities made
its special session debut today. It
bobbed up in the discussions of the
House subcommittee on taxation, and
produced an apparent concensus that
if tax exempt securities are to be made
taxable it will take a Constitutional
amendment to do it.
While House and Senate debated!
the Farm Bill and other committees
worked on- the Administration hous-
ing program, the tax group spoke of
recommending such an amendment,
unless a forthcoming Supreme Court
decision points to another solution.
Totals Announced
A total of $14,854,000,000 state andl
municipal securities and $35,548,000,-l
000 federal securities are outstanding.
The Roosevelt Administration has
consistently urged .thatthe, present
tax exempt features of these securities
be removed.
The farm debate drew from Sen-
ator Borah (Rep., Idaho) one of his
increasingly rare orations. It is "na-f
tional suicide," he said, to reducel
crops "when there are millions ofI
hungry and needy persons in the
country." Farmers who failed to com-J
ply with acreage allotments fixed byl
the Secretary of Agriculture would bel
sujected to "government blackmail,",
he added. And besides, he said, the
whole thing is unconstiutional.
House Reads Farm Bill
The House, reading the Farm Bill
for amendment, debated at length a
proposal by Representative Andresen
(Rep., Minn.) that benefit payments
to any one farmer be limited to $5,-
000. Representative Patman (Dem.,
Tex.) suggested that the limit be'
made $10,000 instead. Finally the
House decided to split the difference
and set the figure at $7,500.

Prof. William Haber of the eco-

night that his statement at the Legis-

change applied only to the efficiency
of cooperatives and not to their value
or desirability.
In his experience with cooperatives
in Michigan Professor Haber said
that he has found no justification for
the existence of "self-help coopera-
tives, viewed from the standpoint of
efficiency." At one time there were
eleven such organizations in the state
and all have gone out of existence.
Professor Haber declared that the

groups at 2 p.m. tomorrow in the
