    Veary Legislators Head
For Home After Longest
Session On State Record
The complicated taxation prob
lems, budget difficulties and
education and welfare issues
were largely responsible for pro
longing the 44th assembly.
Passage of the one per cent
Increase in the income levy for
persons making over $8000 tax
able income was forced out of
the house by the senate as a
means of recouping revenue lost
by passage of the community
property law. The community
property bill is expected to cost
the state fund $1,000,000 and
the new Increase may recoup
$700,000 to $1,000,000 of this
amount.

" SALEM. Ore., April 7 P)
Oregon's legislators were back
home today after adjourning the
83-day session of the legislature,
longest on record, early Sunday
morning as both chambers un
snarled their differences over
tax bills.
t The assembly left a general
fund deficit of $3,000,000 which
it hopes will be made up by ref
erendum tax issues.
r.Tho legislature voted a spe
cial election for its proposed 8
per cent retail sales tax bill,
which exempts food, and In last
minute action both houses voted
to increase income taxes from
the present 7 to 8 per cent for
persons with more than $8000
annual taxable income.
' Linked to the sales tax bill,
which will go to the voters for
a sixth time October 7, are a
cigaret tax of 2 cents a pack and
a one per cent salary withhold
ing tax. The cigaret tax will
cease if the sales tax is approved
and the withholding tax on
wages will operate only if the
sales tax fails.
The legislators, who worked
33 days without pay after their
$8 a day wage for SO days ran
out, Introduced 1016 bills and
passed 696 of them. The session
lasted 14 days longer than the
1945 assembly, previously the
longest in state history.
The legislators were in recess
during most of the day on Sat
urday waiting for amendments
to be drafted and conference re
ports to be adopted and then
went into a late night session.
The estimated $24,000,000
revenue which the sales . tax
would return to the treasury
would be distributed one-sixth
each to counties, cities, school
districts and public welfare, with
the other one-third going to the
state's general fund. If the sales
tax bill is approved by the peo
ple, income taxes would be low
ered, if the bill is defeated, in
come taxes will be raised.

drink, for they worked hard in
