Exemption Limit for Incomes Will

May Be Disposed Of With
Brief General Debate.
WASHINGTON. May 13. Taxes on
incomes, inheritances and war muni
tion will be depended on to pay for the
preparedness programme, Chairman
Kitchin. of the House ways and means
committee, said tonight after a confer
ence with Secretary McAdoo. The plan
has the support, Mr. Kitchin said, of
What amount will have to be raised
cannot be determined until the Navy
and Army bills are completed.. Mem
bers of the ways and means committee
will begin work on this problem as
quickly as possible, however. Other
than a decision not to lower the present
exemption limit for incomes, $3000 for
unmarried and $4000 for married men,
none of the details of the tax. plan
have been worked out.
Plans for imposing stamp taxes on
manufactured tobacco, liquors, beer,
gasoline and other articles, Mr. Kitchin
f;aid, had been definitely abandoned. He
declared the plan of taxation decided
on would affect only those best able
to pay the levy, falling exclusively on
the wealthy and on foreign nations en
gaged in war. ,
The big preparedness revenue meas
ures will not be introduced in Congress
until after the conventions. Between
now and that time the speeding-up
campaign inaugurated recently will be
continued with a view to disposing of
other business by early July, if possible.
Another step toward carrying out the
programme was made today , when a
rule on the shipping bill was intro
duced. It would provide for five hours'
general debate on the bill and one
hour's debate on the rule itself. Lead
ers hope to dispose of the bill within
two days. Mr. McAdoo, who is partic
ularly interested in the shipping bill,
urged today that it be brought up in
the House as quickly as possible, and
Mr. Kitchin advised him that it would
be reached Tuesday, and that all other
business save that of calendar Wednes
day would be set aside for it.
FROST DAMAGE IS HEAVY
Some Berry Growers Place Loss at
50 Per Cent of Crop.
HOOD RIVER. Or.. May 13. (Spe

strawberry crop of the Hood River
Valley will be comparatively small,
growers whose places lie in depressions
known as frost pockets will suffer
heavily from the frosts that have pre
vailed on the past three nights. Some
growers report this damage as high
as 50 per cent.
MelvUle Foley, a West Side berry
grower, reports that his 10-acre tract
will be cut short by 200 crates.

Kellef to the tension in Ireland was
noted today when Oeneral Maxwell,
commander of the British forces, pub

and Premier Asquith accompanied Gen

calls for a speech.
General Maxwell's address was an
expression of gratitude to the officers'

corps, which lost many men when the
rebels attacked them Easter Monday,

developed one of the most exciting
campaign periods of recent years. The

the position of president of the student

Astoria, and J. D. McKay, of Portland.
But slightly less exciting is the race
for editor of the Barometer, the col

In the contest for president of the

the present student-body officers,
while Mr. McKay, a sophomore, who by
Summer school work will be a senior
next year, is supported by the under

McKay accused a senior honor society
of working to control the elections to

the meeting was hastily adjourned by
