Senate Finance Group Sub
stitutes Mellon Rates for
Amendments Made House
REPORT ON MEASURE IS
EXPECTED THIS WEEK
Democrats Agree Upon
Schedule Which Will Be
Brought Before Senate
WASHINGTON, March 31.
House amendments to the revenue
bill again fell under the pruning
knifo of the senate finance com
mittee today as the rate schedules
were taken up.
Rates in the present law on the
produce exchange sales, drafts and
promissory notes were voted back
into the bH. The house ways and
means committee had cut in halt
the tax on sales on produce ex
change of two cents for eachj100,
which fit was estimated wosnd re
duce revenue $4,000,000 annually,
and repealed the .tax on draf ts and
notes of two cents for each $100
which it was estimated would cost'
the government $2,150,000 an
nually in revenue. .
While the committee renewed
Its program of day and night ses
sions in an effort to conclude this
week, action on the other miscel
laneous tax schedules, democrats
on the committee agreed on a sur
tax rate schedule which they pro
pose as a substitute for the Mellon
rates already voted into the bill
by the senate.
Senator Simmons of North Car
olina, ranking i democrat on the
committee, and author of the
schedule predicted it would receive
, almost unanimous support . from
the democrats and sufficient re
publican insurgent votes to prac
tically assure its adoption., on the
.floor. The schedule was withheld
pending receipt of additional esti
mates. Definite action on the major ex
cise rates, most of which were re
duced or repealed by the house,
anad on the essate and gift taxes
was delayed until after the hear
ing of Secretary Mellon, who has
been asked to present his views
on these rates again to the com
mittee tomorrow. With its action,
today he commitee has eliminated
virtually every important amerid
ent to the bill made by the house
in favor of the original recommen
dations of Secretary Mellon.
; With a ; report on the bill in
sight this week, the committee will
make furtherptudy of estimates as
to cost of he soldier bonus bill
( passed by he house.
Senator Simmons said it was
probable that the democrats would
not attempt to have -the Income
tax rate section reopened n com
mittee and that they would present
their plan for adoption on . the
floor of the senate. v

.Plans for the, budget raising ef
fort of the Salvation army are being
pushed and everything will be
done to save all the expenditure in
money as much as possible. It is
hoped that there will be a gener
ous response to tne appeals tnat
will be- sent out. Ensign Hol-
brook says that he has every con
fidence that the people of Salem
want to see the Salvation army
supported in a way that will en
able them to do the most efficient
The Salvation army la appealed
to first, as nearly everybody knows
it, and in times past the service
that has been rendered by the or
ganization showed to the people
that the army was' willing and
ready to do all that it could to re
lieve distress in any way.
Ensign Holbrook claims to be a
social worker i with experience,
having met with all classes of hu
manity, both ready and willing to
extend any help that can be giv
en. ,? In speaking of , the work of
the Salvation army he says that
people can hardly realize the .pre
vention side of the uplift work.
Not only does the Salvation army
desire to , help the needy but It
does the best that it can to keep
people from being in the needy
The ensign says that helping to
raise this budget will not only let
the' people feel that they are in
the helper class but will also put
them in the prevention class.
