Final Round
Of Tax Fight
On in House
Democrats Oppose
Republican Battle for
Passage of Rum Plan
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, May 3-The fin-
ish battle on pay-as-you-go taxation
opened today in the House, with Re-
publicans again fighting for the
modified Rum plan to skip a com-
plete income tax year and Democrat-
ic leaders intent upon killing the pro-
posal "so dead that it will never
again be resurrected."
In the storm of oratory, the House
cleared the way for a vote tomorrow
that may send to the Senate a bill
wiping out at least half if not all, of
the $10,000,000,000 tax assessed
against 1942 individual incomes.
Demnocrats Support New Plan
The Democrats were aligned be-
hind a pay-as-you-go bill that would
abate about 50 per cent of 1942
Opening the .debate today, Rep.
Doughton (Dem.-N.C.), 79-year-old
Chairman of the Ways and Means
Committee, shouted that the Rum
plan was "an iniquitious tax policy."
Republicans replied that the Dem-
ocratic-supported bill was "a seventh
heaven for the loan sharks." Rep.
Knutson (Rep.-Minn.) charged that
the bill amounted to a capital levy,
because of its "doubling-up" of
taxes, and he said "heretofore the
only people who have stood for capi-
tal levies are the Communists, the
Nazis and the Fascists."
Carlson Speaks to House
The bill would apply the lower 1941
rates and exemptions to 1942 in-
come; the taxpayer then would pay
off this obligation over the next
three years (or sooner if he desired)
while at the same time paying his
current taxes.
Rep. Carlson (Rep.-Kas.), author
of .the bill embracing the Republi-
can-supported modified Ruml plan,
told the house the skip-a-tax-year
proposal was "the only sound and
simple method" of placing America's
44,000,000 income taxpayers on a
pay-as-you-go basis.

Joint Tour
Is Sign of
New Unity
End Seen to Priorities
Fend as Patterson,
Jeffers Disclose Plans
WASHINGTON, May 3.-(k')-The
bitter priorities fued between Rubber
Administrator William M. Jeffers
and UndersecretaryofWar Patterson
seemed at an end today as the two
men made plans for a joint tour of
war plants looking for bottlenecks to
Patterson, who previously had pro-
tested that Jeffers' rubber factory
program was taking vital materials
away from the aviation gasoline pro-
gram, disclosed the forthcoming tour
at a session of the Truman Commit-
tee, senatorial group inquiring into
the quarrel.
Need for Gas
Patterson still insisted a shortage
of high octane gasoline was hamper-
ing the war program. He said the
need for gasoline is growing, partly
because American airmen have been
so successful in combat that their
percentage of plane losses "is con-
siderably less than half of what we
"We are going to have a bigger air
force sooner than we expected," he
Concerning his recent differences
with Jeffers, he said there was noth-
ing personal in them, and added:
Patterson Takes Issue
"Jeff and I have exactly the same
aim-to win the war."
At the same time, Patterson took
issue with a statement to the Com-
mittee by Chairman Donald M. Nel-
son of the War Production Board
that the grounding of some training
planes in this country was the re-
sult of faulty distribution of gaso-
line rather than an over-all shortage
and that the gasoline might be "at
the wrong points."
Search for 98's
Crew Is Futile
Two-Week Hunt Made
Through Dense Jungle
PARAMARIBO, Dutch Guiana,
May 3.--P)- U. S. Army Headquar-
ters here announced today that
searchers who spent two weeks in
the jungle hunting for survivors of
the bomber crash from which Lieut.
Tommy Harmon escaped had re-
turned without success.
Harmon, former All-American
football star at the University of
Michigan, was one of the two pilots
in the six-man crew and the only
member of the group to be found
alive since the crash, April 8.
Today's brief announcement,
which gave few details of the fruit-
less efforts to find other survivors,
said the searchers left immediately
after Harmon arrived here with word
of the accident.
Harmon parachuted tossafety and
wandered in the jungle for four days
until he was found by natives who
guided him to the U. S. Army base
In the course of the hunt for Har-
mon's companions, the searchers
penetrated spots which white men
never had seen before. They hacked
and slashed paths through the dense

undergrowth and finally reached the
wrecked plane, assisted by natives
and guiding planes overhead.

Declares Next Step
In Struggle Must
Be Made by Ickes;
Issues UMW Policy
Associated Press Correspondent
WASHINGTON, May 3.- While
the nation's mines began slowly to
resume production tonight under the
15-day truce, John L. Lewis made it
clear that the armistice meant no
retreat from the miners' original de-
mands and that the next step was up
to Secretary of the Interior Ickes,
boss of the goernment-controlled
coal fields.
Repeats Stand
The United Mine Workers leader,!
in a statement issued after a meeting
of the union's National Policy Com-
mittee in New York, also reiterated
the stand of the miners that they
"were no longer bound by the no-
strike pledge," and charged that the
War Labor Board by adopting the
"Little Steel"" wage formula had
"breached the understanding" labor
had entered with the public, employ-
ers and the administration regarding
strikes in wartime.
Apparently in answer to President
Roosevelt's statement of last night
that the United Mine Workers had
entered the no-strike agreement,
Lewis asserted that "the War Labor
Board must accept the full responsi-
bility for distress in the ranks of
labor created by their controvention
of the understanding and commit-
ments arrived at in the December,
1941 conference."
Original Demands
Lewis, who announced the coal
mine truce last night 22 minutes be-
fore President Roosevelt called upon
the 480,000 miners to go back to
work, said the coal diggers would
stand pat on their original demands
for $2-a-day increases, underground
travel pay and unionization of minor
bosses, and he tossed the ball to Sec-f
retary Ickes with the remark he was
now "awaiting the initiative from
Mr. Ickes." There was no comment
immediately from Ickes.
Attorneys Must
IWrite Plea for
Stephan Retrial
DETROIT, May 3.-(P)-Attorneys
for Max Stephan, German-born De-
troit cafe owner under sentence to
be hanged for treason, and govern-
mentrcounsel today were directed by
'Federal Judge Arthur J. Tuttle to
submit in writing their arguments
on a motion for a new trial for
Nicholas Salowich, Stephan's at-
torney, filed the motion April 28,
claiming "newly discovered evidence"
on the grounds that Stephan received
the counsel of William J. Nagel,
former Detroit postmaster, before
aiding in the escape of Peter Hans
Krug, Nazi flier. Nagel has denied
Stephan's statement.
The judge gave Salowich until May
10 to file affidavits, having pointed
out that the attorney's motion was
not supported by affidavits of any
persons who had personal knowledge
of the facts alleged.
