Members of the house ways and means COmmittee, which drafted the plan. said the statute book would COntinue to list the special provision under which the first $1500 of a serviceman's base pay is excluded from gross income. This would be in addition to other ex- emptions provided in the law. Thus, an unmarried naval lieu. tenant junior grade)  with a base pay of $2.000 and no private income -- would have to pay no in- come tax because of his $500 per- Imnal exemption and the exclusion of $1.500 from his gross income.

The report said that taxes will he increased on some persons and decreased for others, "but these shifts in burden have been kept at a minimum." Concerning the changes in the withholding schedules, the commit. tee said that the method "will not differ greatly from the method of existing law, and it is believed that employers will encounter little if any difficulty in changing over to the new provisions when they be- come effective next January." Raps Cabaret Tax Meanwhile. Rep. Harold Knut- son. R., Minn., ranking minority member of the committee, said that congress had unwittingly used its tax pOwer to destroy when it raised the cabaret tax from five to 30 per cent. He said many establishments gubject to the tax already have "been put out of business, and others will follow if relief is not given." He said the question wast not whether cabarets are needed in time of war, nor one of revenue, and added: "As I see it, the question is, shall we depart from the old-time Amer. icon principle of raising taxes for revenue with which to operate the government, or shall we adopt a new principle of using the taxing power to destroy? That is the whole question in a nutshell. H cabarets are wrong, abolish them by law. We should have the COur- KENOSHA EVENING NEWS i Adolf and Benito leetAcjain for 'CouncilofWar' London -- (U.P.)

Sweden is reported to have told both Britain and the United States that it cannot break its commit- ments to Germany to send ball bearings, which replace those de- stroyed by Allied air raids Text of the notes-have not been made public, but it is understood that Sweden's refusal was polite though firm.

WADE MOTORS 6225 - 18th Avenue New Effort to Halt Sedition Trial R, jected Washington -- C/P} -- Justice Ed- ward C. Etcher brushed aside to- day another attempt to halt the trial of 28 men and two women ac- cased of COnspiring to disaffect the U. S. armed forces. Etcher opened today's session in federal district court by an- nouncing he had overruled a ,mo- tion in .behalf of Gerald B. Win- rod of Wichita, Kas., asking post- ponement of the trial until the end of the war on a change of venue from Washington. The motion, which also sought a separate trial for Winrod, contended that a fair trial could not be had here. The justice made no comment in overruling the motion. One by one. other defense at- torneys made similar motions, and all were overruled. Efforts Drag On Efforts to obtain a jury dragged on. James J. Laughlin. one of the !numerous defense attorneys, sent !a letter to the White House asking President Roosevelt to stop the trial to prevent "class (being) at- ;rayed against class and race against race." "l believe it will be wise if you would call a halt to this prosecu- tion," Laughlin wrote "If you do not do that, it is my judgment that the developments at the trial will create such a wage of hostility and bias toward the Jewish race as t.9 create a very unhappy situation. "Unless you curb this prosecu- tion at once, we will see class ar- rayed against class and race against race." Etcher has yet to rule on a mo- tion to subpoena Henry Ford and Charles A. Lindbergh.
