"DIAGNOSIS AND CURE"
NEEDED SAYS LEADER
Couzens of Michigan Seeks
Additional Information ,?
WASHINGTON, j Jan. 5.--The
Mellon" tax 'program will become
a storm center in congress under
plans of democratic lea'ders. They
made known today that they were
preparing for a sharp fight against
the proposal to cut in half the
percent maximum surtax on small
incomes than : has been proposed
by the-treasury secretary. f
At the same time Secretary -Mel
lon made public a letter to Sen
ator Couzens, . republican, Michi
gan, in which he renewed his ar
guments in favor of a maximum
surtax of 25 per .cent. Mr.' Mel
lon declared it was not those who
have the capital who are hurt! by
system of wartime nigh sur
taxes; "that it is the whole coun
try which would benefit by its
productive use which suffers."
. Diagnosis Needed
"Let us have diagnosis and cure
not autopsy and verdict," the
secretary said in concluding his
letter which was in response to
one from Senator Couzens. The
Michigan senator had written Mr.
Mellon that-the secretary's com
munications on the subject of a re
duction in surtaxes did not seem
proposed -Would be for
the good, of the whole country.
he added that the legislative ae
tion in conformity with the surtax
recommendations should be sup
ported by very conclusive evi
dence." that such a reduction
would have this effect.
The soldiers' bonus again was
Injected prominently into the tax
situation today with the filing of
formal petittons for a conference
of house republicans next Thurs
day night to decide whether the
ways -and means committee is to
report a bonus bill ahead of tax
legislation. Former service men
who are members of congress
pressed their demand for a confer
ence despite the opposition of
-some party leaders to their pro
gram. A call for the conference
