3r Cent Tax Cut
ONE of the more frequent Republican yelps
concerns taxes. The Republicans are all
)ut for lowering them. A 20 per cent across-
he-board cut is their current baby.
A 20 per cent across-the-board cut in in-
:ome taxes would violate the two main pur-
)oses of a tax revision needed now. With
nflationary costs cutting so deeply into the
>urchasing power of persons in the middle
ind lower income brackets, the tandard of
iving of these people has been forced stead-
ly downward. A 20 per cent cut in their
axes would not be enough to offset the
prices they are forced to pay for even the
Basic necessities of decent living.
Secondly, a 20 per cent across-the-board
ut violates the principle of taxes based on
bility to pay. Although on the surface this
ut appears equitable, actually the concrete
ffects of it would favor the wealthy tax-
layers at the expense of taxpayers in the
ower income brackets.
Under the 20 per cent proposal, a mar-

ried man with a family of two earning $3,-
000 a year would have his tares reduced by
$27.40 a year, or 53 cents a week, which
is not much in the way of a reduction.
And $3,000 a year isn't much in the way
of an income today either. By contrast,
the man who earns $100,000 a year would
find his taxes reduced by $12,460 a year,
or $239 a week. And the man who has a
million dollar income would have a tax
savings of $167,779, or $3,226 a week.
ONE doesn't have to be a mathematician to
see the effects of a 20 per cent across-
the-board cut. The figures show simply
enough that it would be unfair to the middle
and lower income bracket. The cut would
not materially increase the purchasing pow-
er of the 70 per cent of American families
who earn less than $3,000 a year.
A tax revision today must recognize the
inflationary prices of all goods and the cor-
responding difficulty for people not in the
higher income bracket to maintain a decent
living standard. It must be graduated up-
wards, with extremely low rates for low in-
come groups and higher rates as incomes
A 20 per cent across-the-board cut ac-
complishes nothing in this direction.
Republican Tax Policy
THE SNOW that was falling around Rep.
Harold Enutson as he stood on the Capi-
tol steps didn't seem to dampen his spirits,
for he wore a wide smile as he announced
his "big news" for taxpayers through a news-
reel which showed in local theatres last
week. "The Republicans," he proclaimed,
"will cut personal income taxes 20 per cent."
Taken at face value, his statement seems
to be cause for general rejoicing, but closer
examination brings two questions to mind.
First, will Congress be able to effect such a
cut without jeopardizing national economy,
and second, is a cut in taxes a wise move
at this time?
Knutson is sponsoring this 20 per cent tax
cut in the House and another Republican
leader, Senator Taft, is sponsoring it in the
Senate. Both men propose to cut taxes by
reducing President Truman's proposed $37,-
500,000,000 national budget. Says Senator
raft: "In my opinion, we should be able
to squeeze from three to four billion Qut of
the budget so that total expenditures will
riot exceed $33.5 billion."
According to Thomas L. Stokes and other
editorial observers, this will be difficult to
do because four-fifths, or almost $30 billion,
of the proposed budget are for what the
President calls "fixed items." These include
nterest on the national debt, tax refunds,
national defense, international commitments
and veterans expenditures. Since most of
hese items are not flexible and have to be
paid for, even the most scrutinizing legislator
will have trouble finding places to slash
Eliminating these "fixed items," from
the Truman budget there remains only
$7 billion to cover general government,
social security, public works, heducation
and housing programs, public health etc.
It is this $7% billion which must be trim-
med by the Republicans if their 20 per
cent personal income tax reduction is to
become possible. Of their chances the
Chicago Sun says:
"If the Republicans can make $3 or $4
billion do in these fields what Truman
says $7.5 billion is needed to do, they will
be entitled to a fiscal Oscar. We shall be-
lieve it when we see it."
[S A CUT in personal taxes wise at this
time? President Truman believes not. He
elieves instead that any government surplus
hould be applied toward the national debt.
['his debt is now $259 billion which, accord-
ng to Treasury figures, is a personal debt
if $1,832.24 for each man, woman, and child
a the country.
It would seem only sensible that some of
this staggering national debt should be paid
off now while the national income is at an
all-time peak. Also, with the income already
high and production still short of consumer
demand, is it. not possible that a reduction
of taxes and the corresponding increase of
money in circulation would have inflationary
" Some advocates of tax reduction say
they will seek economy through reduction
of the national defense appropriation
which at $11 billion is the largest single
item in the proposed budget. A recent
America Speaks poll, however, found
America in favor of going without tax re-
duction rather than cutting national de-
fense. With world conditions far from
settled, any reductions in this appropri-
ation might prove very unwise.
Evidently, then, several points can be
raised which question both the actual pos-
sibility and the wisdom of the proposed 20
per cent cut in personal income taxes. Upon
probing it beneath the surface the "big
news" of Rep. Knutson and the Republi-
cans is not as joyous for the taxpayer as
they would have him believe.
As the snow fell behind him on the steps
of the Capitol, perhaps Rep. Knutson was
shoveling some of it right along to the Amer-

MATTER OF FACT:
By JOSEPH ALSOP
W ASHINGTON-In the customary gen-
eral statement to an incoming Secretary
of State, the British government gave first
priority to assuring George C. Marshall of
their continued belief in intimate, uninter-
rupted Anglo-American collaboration as the
real fundamental of world security. At the
present juncture-after the left wing Labor-
ite attacks on the "American alliance;"
during the cruel British coal crisis and on
the eve of the Moscow conference-this
renewed assurance of Anglo-American team:-
work has very great significance.
Since the left wing of his own party began
to attack Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin,
not a few American policy makers have been
deeply fearful that the old Byrnes-Bevin
team would not evolve into a new team of
Bevin and Marshall. The exchanges between
London and Moscow over the possible ex-
tension of the Anglo-Soviet treaty of friend-
ship increased this alarm. More recently,
there have been rumors that at Moscow the
British would make important concessions
to the Soviet point of view-perhaps on
centralization of the German government,
which we oppose, or on revision of the new
Eastern frontiers of Germany, which James
F. $yrnes spoke up for at Stuttgart last
It is already apparent that the numerous
conflicts of viewpoint will make the Mos-
cow conference into a sort of political
basket of eels. It is vital that amidst the
unparalleled complexities of the situation,
there should be a few fixed points.
These can only be provided by mainte-
nance of Anglo-American teamwork. Ac-
cordingly, the final version of British strat-
egy for Moscow, now being hammered out at
the Foreign Office, is being awaited here
with genuinely bated breath. No one knows
whether Bevin will seek to appease the left
wing Laborites by taking the line suggested
in the recent rumors, or will decide instead
to act upon the principle contained in his
assurance to Marshall. The latter alterna-
tive still seems to be the better bet. The
chances are that Britain and the United
States will stand together on the big issues,
while differing in detail.
It is, time to take note, however, that
the absolute permanence of Anglo-American
teamwork cannot any longer be taken cas-
ually for granted.
THE UNIVERSITY MUSEUM OF AT
is currently presenting an exhibition of
"Forty Modern Prints," loaned by the De-
troit Institute of Art. This display is hung
in the west gallery of Alumni Memorial Hall.
Artists from several countries are represent-
ed by some excellent prints that have not
been often seen. There is a wide range of
philosophical artistic concept, a number of
mediums, and ap almost complete cross sec-
tion of their technical possibilities.
The American section is regrettably weak,
and by no means does justice to our native
school of printmakers. One need only think
of such omissions as Yasuo Kuniyoshi, Adolf
Dehn, Emil Ganso and Max Weber to be
convinced of this. The lithograph by the
American Kuniyoshi loaned by the Ann Ar-
bor Art Association, and displayed in the
corridor case, should be conclusive evidence.
In the writer's opinion a work of art
should be an emotional union of philoso-
phical concept, medium, and technique. In
this instance, therefore, the print should
reflect in degree a realization of the above.
The etching "Composition" by Georges
Braque, French 1881, represents a highly
developed form of doodling. The handling
is about what one should expect of any one
acquainted with the medium. There is cer-
tainly a place for this kind of performance;
however it cannot be considered very seri-
ously. In the same category, notice the wood
engraving, "Under a Glass Bell," by Jean
Hugo, French 1894. This is an example of
an intellectualized attempt to cieate an
emotional situation. Its success is due almost
entirely to its excellent technical skill. It
falls short of being a first class print be-
cause of the unsympathetic coldness of the
By way of comparison, I should like to
refer to two prints in the exhibition which
I believe exemplify a high degree of artistic
merit. The semi-abstract etching,"The Com-
bat" by Pablo Picasso, Spanish 1881, is a
powerful print. The understructure of the
design is simple and direct while the es-
sential foreground is complex to the point of
causing a pulsating after-image. This psy-
chological after-image forms a spatial dis-
turbance which creates a type of life organ-
ization which the theme demands. The
artist makes an intelligent observation ex-
pressed in terms of such emotional force
that one is aware of only the theme.
The lithograph "Christ on the Cross" by
Georges Rouault, French 1871, has all the
qualities of a masterpiece. There is shown
a complete command of all the technical
potentialities of lithography. The inter-
play of liquid tusche, stick crayon, and rub-
bing tusche along with the engraved tex-
tures, gives warmth and a moving space
quality to the composition, while the sus-
tained emotional charge is given free rein
by the guiding intellectual concept. The
result is a totally remarkable print.
MAN TO MAN:
By HAROLD L. ICKES
PRESIDENT TRUMAN has asked for a
one-year extension of the Second War
Powers Act, under which he could control al-
locations of foodstuffs and industrial mater-
ials. This request should not be granted.
Rather, all emergency war powers should be
terminated without further loss of time. To
be sure, President Truman has made a vol-
untary token surrender of certain war pow-
ers but he did not go far enough.
War powers are inconsistent with such
delegated powers as are required for our
governance in times of peace. Various rea-
sons are advanced in support of a contin-
uance of war powers. The Army allows it to
be known that if they should be abolished,
"The Army would be reduced to chaos." The
Navy, which is even more allergic than is
the Army to democratic procedures, also
wants these powers retained. Then, there
are those who would like to keep-them in
order to destroy, or at least, to possess a
crippling check upon organized labor. These
want the President to retain the powers,
under the pretext of a non-existent war, to
take over any industry that may be having
Of course, we ought to have permanent
legislation that would make it possible for
both the Army and the Navy to function as
they should in keeping with our greater re-
sponsibilities in international affairs. The
Congress can provide us with such laws as
we may need in times of peace with respect
to both industry and labor. Surely we can
trust the Congress to enact §uch legislation
as may be necessary for our progress and

GOVERNOR SIGLER' attacks
upon student activities at East
Lansing and Ann Arbor, as re-
ported in yesterday's Ann Arbor
News, might well be called absurd-
ities right from the start. His re-
liance upon terms like "subver-
sive" and Communistic" is char-
acteristic of the backward public
officials and their attempts to dis-
rupt movements in favor of anti-
lynch laws, fair - labor - practices
legislation, and anti-Franco reso-
lutions. Since he lacks other proof
of "un-American" actions on the
students' part (up until now it's
all hearsay), these forward-look-
ing principles could be the only
basis for the Governor's accusa-
tions. Moreover, a student poll
would most (prtainly find an over-
