Tax Compromise
WASHINGTON--(P-A new compromise tax bill, making the
income tax boost just a little less, was passed quickly by the Senate
A voice vote in the Senate sent the modified revenue measure
back to the House and a vote there today. The Hose voted 203 to
157 Tuesday against the bill in its original form.
* s *
THE NEW BILL is estimated to raise $5,691,000,000 in new taxes,
compared with the estimated $5,732,000,000 in the previous one. In


most essentials, however, the

two measures are the same despite
--the $41,000,000 money difference.

A Senate internal security
subcommittee has been investi-
gating alleged subversive influ-
ences on U.S. policy toward the
Far East.
Jessup, top adviser to Secretar;
of State Acheson, had been assail
ed by Senator McCarthy (R-Wis
and Harold E. Stassen.
Senators Gillette (D-Iowa), Brew

Smith (R-N.J.). For him wer
Senators Sparkman (D-Ala.), th
subcommittee chairman, and Ful
bright, (D-Ark.)
The subcommittee's adverse
} recommendation' came as a
crushing blow to the State De-
partment which had fought
tooth-and-nail to support Jes-
sup and had carried on a run-
ning battle with Stassen, one of
Jessup's chief critics.
Unless the Senate acts on th
nomination, Truman could ignor
the subcommittee's vote and send
Jessup to the critical forthcoming
sessions of the United Nation
General Assembly. The Assembi
meets in Paris next month.
The ballot on Jessup was take
behind closed doors. At the same
time, the subcommittee voted 3 to
0 to confirm nine others nominat,
ed by Truman as UN delegates.

If the House should pass the
bill today,. Congress probably
could adjourn Saturday until
January. If it turned it down
again, there is a possibility of
further delay or a special session
during the time now set aside
for vacation.
House leaders called their mem-
bers to meet at 10 a.m. CST today,
ready to vote on the bill. Its
chances appeared improved but it
still was not a certainty by any
MAIN CHANGES voted by the
1. There would be an increase
of 11 per cent, instead of 12'/2 per
cent, in the tax on the first $2,000
of surtax net income. It would
affect all income brackets, since
everyone pays the first surtax rate.
It would trim the proposed tax in-
crease on single persons as much
as $2 a year and on married couples
the reduction in the increase
would go up to $4 a year. Esti-
mated net loss in revenue: $68,-
2. The maximum effective
tax on long term capital gains,
by both individuals and corpora.
tions, would be increased from
the existing 25 per cent to 26
per cent. Estimated revenue
gain: $28,000,000~
3. July 1. 1951, instead of Jan.
1, 1952, would be the effective date
for a cut back in the excess profits
credit from 85 to 83 per cent. The
effect would be to make the credit
84 per cent, rather than 85, for
the calendar year 1951. Estimated
gain: $60,000,000, but for one year

the double-quick to the Suez yes-
terday after British tank forces
fought their first battle with
Egyptian Army troops and won
control cf a bridge in the grimly
disputed area.
A British Army spokesman said
a British truck carrying stores was
fired on, apparently by an auto-
matic weapon, between Ismailia
and Tel-el-Kebir. He said the driv-

away without damage.

been attacked similarly in that
area, but the spokesman said he

Sour Note
A group of Theta Delta Chi
members sang their way into
the Dean's office last night.
While serenading pajama clad
Delta Gamma sorority mem-
bers, the Theta Delta Chi men
were interrupted by the arri-
val of an Ann Arbor police
Scout car.
Two complaints from neigh-
bors had sent the officers to
the song-fest at the corner of
Church and Hill streets to en-
force a local "noise" ordinance.
The Theta Delt's were told to
report to Dean Rea's office at
10 a.m. today.
Delta Gamma then struck up
with a hearty chorus of its own.
Police shined their spotlight on
the balcony for a while, then
left with the noise problem
more complicated than ever.

Veep Cites
The} United States must con-{
tinue to expand the horizons ofI
democracy if there is to be hope
for the free peoples of the world,
Vice-President Alben W. Barkley
declared here last night.
Speaking to a packed house at
Hill Auditorium, the vice-presi-
dent opened the 98th Oratorical
Lecture Series with a non-political
address, "The Crossroads of De-
CITING the United States as
the best example of democracy yet
put into effect, Mr. Barkley traced
the growth of the democratic ideal,
within and outside of the boun-
daries of the nation.
"Since the Constitution was
first ratified, the people, by grad-
ual processes brought on by edu-
cation and information, have
strengthened our democracy
with revisions," he remarked.
"And along with the internal
changes has gone a growth and
gradual extension of the frontiers
of democratic institutions."
The Monroe Doctrine he cited
as a policy of "intelligent self-
interest." As it guaranteed demo-
cratic institutions for our neigh-
bors to the south, so it strengthen-
ed our own interests and the in-
stitutions of democracy, he said.
* * *
NOTING that the nation has
grown strong along with its insti-
tutions, the vice-president related
the need for strong government to
modern expansion.
"The very complexities of our
lives makes it necessary for
democratic theories and institu-
tions to be modified," he assert-
ed. "The government must have
the strength to truly be the
agent and servant of the people."
Economics and politics Mr. Bark-
ley cited as two sciences which
function together. "Good govern-
ment and good economics go hand-

Zone Gets :
Red Sanction
Allies Claim
'Nice Progress'
MUNSAN, Korea - (R) - The
Communists late last night ac-
cepted a Untied Nations compro-
mise proposal for security zones
of three mile radius around Mun-
san and Kaesong.
T h e Communist acceptance
cleared a big roadblock in the way
of renewed truce talks.
THE REDS also scaled down
their demand for a three-mile cor-
ridor between the two headquar-
ters of the respective truce dele-
They said they would agree
to a two-mile attack-free corri-
dor to Janmunjom from Mun-
san and Kaesong.
Col. Andrew J. Kinney, senior
allied liaison officer, informed
newsmen of these developments
immediately after yesterday's one
hour and 45 minute session.
"We made very nice progress *
Kinney said. "I think it is going
to work out."
THE FEELING at this UN com-
mand advance headquarters was
that the long disrupted armistice
talks were close to resumption,
possibly within a few days.
TWO OTHER issues still clog
the conference path.These are
the right of Allied planes to fly
over neutral areas and Allied re-
sponsibility for Korean partisan
activity within security zones.
But they were not expected to
prove as difficult to solve as
the size of security zones.

Student Clears
Stand on India,
Pakistan Crisis
Mohammed Sulaiman, president
of the Pakistan Students Associa-
tion, said last night that he wished
to correct any false impres;ons
which mayhave been drawn from
his statement in yesterday's issue
of The Daily on the assassination
of Liaquat Ali Khan.
Any implication that India was
directly involved in the murder of
the Pakistani prime minister had
been unintentional, Sulaiman ex-
WHILE ANY possibility deserved
consideration, Sulaiman went on,
there is no concrete evidence to
support the theory of Indian in-
stigation of the killing.
"Actually," the Pakistani stu-
dent said, "Liaquat Ali Khlan
was regarded in India as a
steadying and moderating in-
fluence as far as India-Pakistan
relations were concerned.
"He would be the last person
India would have wished to see
removed in the present critical
stage of the Kashmir dispute,"
Sulaiman said.
India was brought into the slay-
ing, Sulaiman pointed out, when

it became known that the assassin
was an Afghan tribesman.

Kirk Hints U.S.,
Red Troubles
MOSCOW-(P)-Russians said
yesterday U. S. Ambassador Alan
G. Kirk had dropped "rather
strange hints" about some possible
difficulty between Russia and the
United States if Korean armistice
talks end in failure.
They used the word "nepriyat-
nosti," which can be translated as
trouble or unpleasantness. How-
ever, it can often mean something
considerably stronger than either
trouble or unpleasantness
In Washington, a State Depart-
ment spokesman said last night
the Russians had "misused" and:
"distorted" the words Kirk used
to them in making public the Sov-
iet version of what the Ambassa-
dor said.

THEY LOOI for one or more
of these Soviet proposals:
1. A "peace pact" among the
Big Five Powers--the United
States, Russia, Britain, France
and Communist China. The So-
viet bloc has been urging this
in recent weeks. The West,
holding that the UN is the prop-
er agency for peace; has shown
no interest in the idea.
2. A new meeting of the Big
Four Foreign Ministers to take up
east-west disputes which previous
sessions failed to settle.
3. Revival of plans for world
disarmament and atomic control--
again minus the provisions which
the UN has insisted on to assure
compliance. Premier Stalin hint-
ed the interest of Moscow in this,

that Russia had set off an atomic
