Taxation Plan Is
House Ways And Means
Committee Prefers It To
Latest Portrait Of Elder Rockefeller
For Graduated Rate
WASHINGTON, July 13. -- () -
Sentiment for a stiff tax on excess
profits rather than a progressive tax
on corporation incomes appeared tc
be developing today in the House
Ways and Means Committee.
One member said privately that
the President might be asked wheth-
er he would accept the substitution.
Even Chairman Robert L. Doughton
(Dem.), North Carolina, remarked
that he had "always thought" there
was "merit" to the idea of taxing
Talk of that substitution was en-
gendered by repeated criticisms be-
fore the committee of the plan or-
iginally advanced by the President.
The Administration plan would re-
place the existing fiat 13 per cent
tax on corporation income with a
graduated tax starting at 10% and
rising to 16 per cent.
Manufacturers Take Hand
Tacitly, the committee had agreed
to consider a graduated rate of 10
to 17%/2 per cent. It received from
Henry Morgenthau, Jr., Secretary of
the Treasury, estimates that a tax
of 10 per cent on the first $2,000 of
corporate income and increased by
steps to levy of 171/2 per cent on all
income over, $1,000,000 would bring
$102,200,000 a year into the Treasury.
But Thursday, the Chamber of
Commerce of the United States de-
scribed such a plan as destructive,
and confiscatory. Yesterday the Na-
tional Association of Manufacturers
termed it "unsound" from a social
economic and taxation philosophy
Today the Chamber of Commerce
sent Fred H. Claussen, chairman of
its committee on Federal finance,
before the House committee to con-
tend again that such a levy would
In his message to Congress on the
new tax plan, President Roosevelt as-
serted that the Government "wisely"
had decided on the individual in-
come tax plan because it was based
on ability to pay. Critics of the cor-
porate income tax idea insisted that
violated the principle of the ability
Noel Sargent, economist for the
National Association of Manufactur-
ers, quoted Senator William G. Mc-
Adoo (Dem.), California, as having
said when he was Secretary of the
Treasury in 1918:
"Any graduated tax upon corpora-
tions is indefensible in theory," for
corporations are only aggregations of
individuals, and by such a tax the
numerous small stockholders of a
great corporation may be taxed at a
higher rate than the very wealthy
large stockholders of a relatively
Proponents of the idea of an ex-
cess profits tax point out that the
individal income tax is not levied
on all income. Thereaare first the ex-
emptions, and above that everybody
pays 4 per cent. But imposed on
top of that general 4 per cent levy is
a "surtax" running from 4 to 59 per
The same idea, applied to corpora-
tions, they contended, would put the
heavier burdens only on the concerns
which made excess profits.
High taxes on excess profits have
long been advocated by Senator
Couzens of Michigan, and when the
new tax bill reaches the Senate such
an amendment will be offered even
if the House does nothing about it.

Magic Name Of Meredith Will
ReappearTo World Of Track.
PHILADELPHIA, July 13.-(A)-
Ted Meredith, who set worldrecords
at 800 meters and 440 yards, each of
which withstood all assaults for. 16
years, is taking his knowledge of
cinderpath speeding to foreign soil.
For several years assistant to Coach
Lawson Robertson at the University
of Pennsylvania, Meredith, a Robert-
son pupil, has signed to coach the
Czechoslovakian team for next year's
"I guess I'll be there for at least
a year and a half," he explained upon
leaving for Europe. "I hope, however,
that the job. becomes a permanent
thing. I don't suppose it will be very
difficult. Running is running in any
language, you know."
With an eye to the permanent pos-
sibilities of the job, Ted Cook took
along his family, Mrs. Meredith, Ted
Jr., aged 14, and 8-year-old Rodney.
Meredith's brilliant career dates
back to 1912, when as the "boy won-
der" from Mercersburg academy he
flashed to a world record in the 800
meters in the Olympics at Stockholm.
That was the year he was instructed
to set the pace for the great Mel
To Offer Crime
Course In Fall
EAST LANSING, Mich., July 13. -
A college course in police work for
the scientific apprehension of crim-
inals will be offered by Michigan
State College in September.
The State Board of Agriculture,
governing body of the school, ap-
proved a four-year course of study
and field training Friday and com-
missioned R. C. Huston, dean of ap-
plied sciences, to head the new course
and map out the program of studies.
Two years of basic college work to
supply the students with a general
cultural background., followed by two
years of specialized training in actual
police work, will lead up to a degree
of Bachelor of Science.
Special courses having to do with
photography, fingerprinting, ballis-
tics and other phases of police work,
will be organized by one Brenner,
Lansing attorney and former head of
the college police department.
The State Police, into whose ranks
the graduates will transfer after they
have completed the course, will sup-
ply much of the technical training,
and the course will be expanded to
keep pace with developments in the
field of chemistry and radio.
The board approved a budget of
$2,342,795 for the entire college $1,-
407,573 of which will go for salaries.
Sheppard through the early stages of
the race and then allow America's
ace to come through.
But Sheppard changed the plan'
and headed the pack from the gun. He
set a terrific gait, with Meredith the
only rival able to hang on. Then Ted
unwound his kick, caught "Peerless
Mel" in the stretch and broke the
yarn in 1:51.9, a mark that stood for
16 years before Germany's Otto Pelt-
zer ran 1:50.9.
Meredith's other record .- 47.4 for
440 yards - was made, in 1916 while
he was running for Penn in the in-
tercollegiates at Harvard, and it was-
n't even tied for 15 years.
Then in 1931 Blazin' Ben Eastman
squalled it; so did Vic; Wililams; the
nevt year Little Bill Carr, Penn's
1932 "edition" of Meredith, scored at
47 fiat before setting his phenomenal
400-meter mark of 46.2 in the Olymp-
ics, and Eastman pushed the 440 rec-
ord down to 46.4.
Yep, they whacked around Ted's
mark after they got started (and
Eastman, Tom Hampson and Chuck
Hornbostel have bettered his 800-
meter best, too) but ownership of two
world marks which survived for 16
years each still makes Meredith's one
of the magic names of track history.

Ruth Poat Marries William
Bailey In Battle Creek;
Willam Bohnsack Weds
Of interest in University circles
are the announcements of the wed-
dings of two recent graduates.
Miss Ruth Poat, '35 of Battle Creek,
was married July 10 to William Bailey
of Battle Creek at"an impressive cere-
mony solemnized in St. Thomas Epis-
copal church, Battle Creek.
Miss Poat, who is the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Edward A. Poat, chose
for her wedding a gown of white satin,
with long fitted sleeves. Its square
neck was accented with pearl clips.
Her cap, banded by braided satin,
was fastened with oranged blossoms,
which held in place the veil which
fell over the train of her dress.
Her maid of honor, Miss Dorothy
Poat, her sister, wore aquamarine
point d'esprit over taffeta. Among
the bridesmaids were two of Miss
Poat's classmates at the University,
Margaret Mustard, '35, and Margaret
Windham, '35. The other brides-
maids were Miss Alice Murphy, Miss
Lorna Shepherd of Battle Creek, and
Miss Margaret Newman of Grosse
Mrs. Bailey was a member of Col-
legiate Sorosis, and was also a mem-
ber of Zeta Phi Eta, honorary speech
sorority. Her husband was graduat-
ed in June from Harvard, and was af-
filiated with Delta Upsilon fraternity.
Among the wedding guests were
several of the bride's sorority sisters.
Those who attended were Mary Lou
Miller, '36, Josephine McLean, '36,
Josephine Wilcox, '37, all of Detroit,
Josephine Woodhams, '36, of Plain-
well and Mary Sabin, '35, of Battle

Spinach Faith Is
Justified As Beebe
Foils The Rattler
NEW YORK, July 13. - () - The
spinach-tossers gravely announced
today that Miss Bebe de la Fontaine
had vindicated every faith they had
lodged in the efficacy of foliage as a
protection against the venom of a
The spinach branch of the coun-
try's health enthusiasts, regarded as
veering slightly to the left in the de-
mands for bigger and better spinach
courses, described Miss de la Fon-
taine's condition in precisely these
words. "She is in fine shape."
The customers who crowded into Dr.
Lloyd Sanklin's spinach emporium in
48th street Thursday night were given
ample opportunity to pass on that
particular aspect of the rattle-snake
experiment, and were unanimously
agreed with today's announcement.
Other than a brace or two of off-
stage squeals in the wake of the bite,
the subject of the experiment ap-
peared to have suffered none from her
Daniel-in-the-lion's-den combat with
the Florida snake.
Further, said today's announce-
ment, Miss de la Fontaine ate a
hearty breakfast, though uncon-
firmed reports had it she fumbled
the check due to a persistent swelling
of the fingers on which the rattler
scored bull's eyes.
Miss de la Fontaine's press agent,
a man of serious mein who apparently
went over to the left-wing hook, line
and sinker, reiterated formally she
had received no medical attention,
and ascribed her post-bite health
solely to immersion in spinach baths.
