REVOLT THREATENED AGAMST
SECURITY PAYROLL TAXES
WASHINGTON — (UP) —
House-approved proposals to
delay imposition of social secur-
ity payroll taxes for three
years and then jump them to
three per cent, may cause a re-
volt against the whole system,
Sen. Arthur H. Vandenberg, R.,
Mich., told the senate finance
"Thousands of small business
men have had their margin of
profit completely absorbed by
the present tax," Vandenberg
declared. "A sudden increase of
100 per cent in 1943 would fall
with such impact that there
might be a rebellion."
Another of the witnesses. Prof.
J. Douglas Brown of Princeton
university, former chairman of
the senate's advisory council on
social security, prophesied that
the government eventually will
find it necessary to contribute
one-third of the cost of old-age
insurance which is now raised
from employers and employes
Walter D. Fuller, president of
the Curtis Publishing Co., and
chairman of the economic se-
curity committee of the Nation-
al Association of Manufacturers,
told the committee that the pro-
posal to allow states to reduce
their unemployment compensa-
tion tax rates, if they meet a fed-
eral standard of benefits, vio-
lates the intent of the original
act. He was skeptical of the
ability of the states to reduce the
On another front Marcus
Jj. Bell, general counsel for
the Rock Island railroad,
told the house judiciary com-
mittee that the senate-ap-
proved hill to establish a
railroad reorganization court
"was a subtle approach to
government ownership of
the rairoads." He said that
the tiisk of reorganization
virtually has been complet-
ed by the Interstate Com-
merce Commission, making

AUSTIN — (UP) — The Tex-

vote of 22 ayes to 9 noes for a
"fair trade" merchandising bill
which is a duplicate of the Illi-

The bill will come before the
senae again today for final pas-
sage there and then must go to
the house for acceptance in lieu
of a house bill on the same topic.
If accepted there it goes to the
governor for approval or veto.
The governor has through July
13 to sign or veto any bills pass-
ed by the present session of the
Texas legislature since June 12.

Victory for the "fair trade"
bill came when sponsors out-
maneuvered opponents who had
maintained a successful filibus-
ter against it for the past six
weeks. Yesterday the bill spon-
sors staged a filibuster of their
own until they could count
on enough votes to order an im-
mediate vote. This prevented op-
ponents renewing the filibuster
against the bill.

Mann Asks Law
Sharks' in Texas
AUSTIN — (UP) — Jerry
Mann, Texas' young attorney
general who once was a football
star at Southwestern Methodist
university, made a strong appeal
to legislators yesterday to adopt
a law so officials can halt the
operations of "loan sharks."
Mann appeared before the
house of representatives commit-
tee on criminal jurisprudence in
behalf of a bill to permit the at-
torney general, county or dist-
rict attorneys to seek injunctions
against firms charging usurious
interest rates or service fees in
return for making small loans.
The bill was drawn by Rep.
Eugene Talbert of Tyler after
the state supreme court held
that injunctions could not be
obtained against such establish-
ments on the allegation that they
constitute "public nuisances."
The committee reported the
"The law is being violated will-
fully, flagrantly and malicious-
ly", said the aggressive attorney
general. "It is being violated
openly. These companies appeal
in the beginning just to get hold
of a man. In San Antonio, we
heard that they even offer pre-
miums in making the first loan
"On the whole, this is being
done by firms operated by
chains, some of whom have
three or four offices in the same
building. A man borrows $50,
pays on it for several months,
and is told he still owes $50,
Then he is advised to 'go down-
stairs where you can get a larg-
er loan.' Our investigations re-
veal that some persons pay for
three or four years without ever
paying a dime on the principal.
"I had never realized what a
widespread evil we have in Tex-
as in the loan shark racket. Most,
of the victims are clerks, scrub-
women, small-salaried people.
I Some collectors in San Antonio
even are allowed to carry guns
and they rattle them when they
go cut to make a collection.
I "They embarrass a man every
way that they can, until it runs
a man crazy.
"This is very important to
thousands of people; and we'll
enforce it if given the author-
Mann said that the evil is
most pronounced in cities of
mere than 15,000.
