Congressional and Treasury tax ex-
perts have agreed on ways to provide
quick tax relief for business after
V-E Day, but they do not include
immediate rate reductions.
The relief is proposed in elimina-
tion of uncertainties, speeding of
refunds, and increased exemptions.
If Congress accepts the recommen-
dations, there will be no general re-
ductions in tax rates until major
fg-hting is over in the Pacific.. This

The combined staffs of technical

some hired by Congress--have been

They made their V-E Day recom-
mendations to leading tax-minded
senators and representatives of both2
parties. The report hasn't been made
public, but has been seen and dis-
cussed by various members of Con-
g'ess. Recent statements on Capitol
Hill, when put with other evidence,
h ave made the main outlines of the
r eport increasingly clear.

Those reporters who travelled with
him on a transcontinental speech-
making tour for the vice-presidency
last fall and who were in daily con-
ference with him before and after
his election, think of him as a man:
1. Whose courage has been dem-

campaigner and as chairman of
the Senate War Investigating
Committee who never hesitated to
lambast those high in administra-
