Tax Collections Off, Reason for Deficit Public Work Tax Plan to See Changes WASHINGTON, Jun 1. (AP) With some changes likely In the house income tax Increases, the senate finance committee will undertake tomorrow A rewriting of the administration's Industrial recovery public works-tax bill. After final public arguments to day brought a sharp clash in the views of steel and labor Interests, Chairman Harrison said the com mittee would get down to the Job ot revising quickly and that the house tax program to finance the $3,200,000,000 bond issue for public works probably would be among the sections modified. Harrison did not indicate, how ever, the specific changes the com mittee had in mind. Robert P. Lamont. president of the American Iron and Steel in stitute and former secretary of commerce, told the committee to day the section permitting work ers to Join any labor anion they choose and barring employers from requiring employes to Join company unions was too Indefin ite and open to misinterpretation.
