WASHINGTON —Chairman Reed of
tiie House Ways and Manna Commit
tee is still demanding that the Douse
(Rules Committee give Mb committee
a chance to present to ti»e Douse a
bill which would result in a substan
tial reduction in taxes this year.
It appear*, however, that the Re
publican leadership other than (Rep
resentative Reed—is trying to prevent
Ha bill coming to the floor. The rea
son is obvious: They are virtually
certain that the House would vote for
a cut in taxes.
There is a cry that the budget must
be balanced first. The trick in that
is that as long as money is available
by Way of high taxes, there will al
ways be plenty of bureaucrats making
demands for large appropriations for
all sorts of government spending.
I feel that we should spare no le
gitimate expense to keep our country
thoroughly defended militarily. At the ,
same time, I am very confident that
the military can make many, many
moves that would result in economies
and efficiencies. Os course, the ex
cessive spenders don’t desire this, hut
it is my purpose to support aH meas
ures of economy and for tax reduc
The present tax burden is having a
demoralizing effect even on our low
inoome group. Sometime ago, I saw
a case where a firm wished to assist
a young woman employee who had
quite a number of obligations to meet.
She was given a special bonus of
SSOO, but when she received the bonus
it amounted to only $416 because the
government first (have SBS
It has seemed to me that it is very
unfair for the government to have to
take so much out of the paycheck of
the lower-income citizens. Tt is en
couraging to think that the present
investigation into economies will lead
to some reduction in taxes.
A GENERAL SPEAKS
General Van Fleet, just back from
Korea, has stirred up quite a (hornet’s
nest in his appraisal of the conduct
of the war in Korea. Most interest
was centered on his statement that
there was a scarcity of ammunition
back sometime ago—despite the huge
appropriations made by Congress for
There are those in the government
who think General Van Fleet should
be suppressed and not be permitted
to talk the way he has been talking.
But there are others, fortunately, who
think the truth should come out, re
gardless of whom it hurts, and that
incompetence should be exposed at
I am told by those who know Gen
eral Van Flett that he is a thoroughly
able and efficient General who has
somehow or other stirred up the wrath
of the Pentagon Potentates. That, I
am told, is one of the reasons he is
being retired at 60, just when he ap
parently is in the prime of his career.
It is difficult to fathom some of the

BENSON AND FARM PRICES
Agriculture (Secretary Benson Menus
to be in for a let of argument about
the decline in farm prices. This sub
ject has been particularly keen with
respect to cattle prices. (Secretary
Benson asserts that the price decline
has now been checked, and that fann
ers are now encouraged about tbs
possibility of marketing their animals
at a profit
Just how Mr. (Benson wfll fare as
a result of his announced program,
H is too early to say. (North Caro
lina, of course, is tremendously inter
ested in the success and welfare of the
farming population of our State and
every member of our delegation in

with the situation —with the determi
nation to protect the interests of the
farmers all over our (State.
At President Eisenhower's suggest
ion, a resolution was introduced in
the Senate condemning the activities
off the Soviet Government in its vio
lations of commitments made during
the war at Yalta, Teheran and Pots
President Eisenhower apparently
would be well satisfied with a reso
lution that does not inclurWa con
demnation of the
stration, but one that shows a unified
front to the Communists. That’s where
the fun began.
Some Republicans couldn’t resist an
opportunity to jab at the (Democratic
Administrations involved. They of
fered an amendment doing 'just that.
The Democrats, of course, oppose
that—as do Republican Senators Aik
en of Vermont and Tobey of New
Senator Aiken made this grave
have a cooling off period of 80 days.”
Personally I didn’t see much point
in making further declarations against
the Soviets, since we have condemned
their activities over and over 'again.
This is another illustration in which
some Republicans, eager to get even
with the Democrats, are involving
their President in a situation that
ought not to have arisen.
The Democrats were willing to go
along with the President. President
Eisenhower wasn’t attempting to con
demn or vilify anyone.
