Tax Hike Bill
To President

5 Billion Boost
WASHINGTON-(P)-A $5,691,-

dividuals, corporations and a wide

covering from a jolting setback on
a similar version'of the bill Tues-
day, ran .up a 25 vote margin for
the measure yesterdays The roll
call vote was 185 in favor of the
bill, 160 against. The Senate passed
it by a voice vote Thursday.
Thus, individual income tax

items including liquor, gasoline
and household appliances. This

was beaten by a combination of
(1) legislators demanding that
the administration slash spend-
ing and (2) others who urged
still *higher taxes and eom-

lightly on large incomes and
too heavily on small.
Yesterday Deniocratic leader
McCormack of Massachusetts
warned that defense spending js
going to plunge the government
billions of dollars in the red, and
said that defeat of the tax bill
would "feed the fires of inflation."
This would hurt everybody, espe-
cially the little fellow, he said.
Backers of a rider to permit
states to publish their relief rolls
hailed douse passage of the tax
bill, carrying their plan, as a major
state's right victory.
Tacked on the bill by Senator
Jenner (R-Ind.), the rider pro-
vides that no state may be denied

lic in developing and stretgthen-
ing as a democratic republic and
a peace-loving country fighting for
freedom and independence and

Truman Ends
German War
Truman late yesterday signed a
Congressional resolution ending
the state of war with Germany.
There was no immediate state-

The resolution became effective
as soon as the President affixed
his signature. It means that Ger-
mans no longer are enemy aliens
in the eyes of this country.
