Moncure had said he intro- duced the original bill at the request of the “good people” of. Arlington to remove the School Board from “politics.” But the measure generally was in- terpreted as punishment of the’ School Board for a partial in- tegration policy announced last dan. 13.

The bill, as passed, is ex- pected to put the final burying touches on the Boatwright Bill which would bar Federal em- ployes from school boards and other local offices.

It was understood that if the Arlington delegation -would support the compromise Mon- cure Bill strong efforts would

made to keep the Boat- wright Bill buried in com- mittee,

‘The compromise Moncure Bill, in effect, would concen- trate the attention of the rival liberal and conservative fac- tions in Arlington on the County Board election, because those elections would be the key to the membership of future school boards. The five- member School Board now is controlled by the liberals. The conservatives have a three-two edge on the County Board, but control of the County Board would be decided by elections again before the first School Board appointments.

In another development, At- torney General J. Lindsay: Almond Jr. said he is con-| vinced that the controversial Moore Resolution by itself “would prove to be a ready and dangerous weapon in the hands of the opposition.” The resolution calls for operation of segregated schools in 1956- 57 and delay of the Gray Com- mission program to avoid en- forced integration. )

A District revenue bill raising local taxes by $8 million a year and boosting the Federal payment by $2 million

was approved yesterday by

The bil! contains most provisions recommended by th District Commissioners to rais ‘$10.1 million in new revenu next year. The taxpayer will ihurt most when he pays his city income tax. ,

The measure now goes to the full House District Committee which may act next week to send it to the House floor. The full committee usually approves \actions of its fiscal subcommit- tee without major change. | Under the proposed program the average married District resident with a $5000 income land a house assessed at $10,000 would pay about $75 a year in new taxes A married man learning $10,000 with a house ‘assessed at $20,000 probably | would pay more than $100 in inew taxes. If either is a pro- | fessional man, he would pay $25 |more. | These are the provisions of the bill:

Federal Payment. The ceiling ‘in the annual Federal payment to the city would be increased from $20 million to $22 mil- lion. This would not guarantee payment. The amount must be voted “each year in an ap- propriation bill. Last year Con- gress paid only $18 million laf the $20 million it had authorized.

Income Tax. Drop the present $4000 individual exemption to $1000 for single persons and $2000 for married workers and theads of families. This: would icost the average married iworker $62.50 more a year. Rates remain the same except on taxable income above $20.- 000, which would step up from 4 per cent to a maximum of 5 per cent.

Farm and garden matcrials. Seeds, fertilizer and like items would be brought under the 2 per cent sales tax to produce $40,000 a year.

Besides trimming down the Commissioners’ request on beer, the subcommittees cut out two District tax proposals en- tirely. They were proposed 2 per cent sales taxes on local telephone calls and on admis- ions.

Theater operators had testi- fied that they were hurting at the box office now and couldn't stand the tax. The subcommit- tee decided the telephone com- pany is taxed enough by the Federal.Government.

The taxes. on . professional men, commissaries and garden materials were not in the Com- missioners program. They were added by the subcommittees to help make up for the revenue they cut out of the bill.

The Commissioners made up the difference by revising their income tax revenue estimates under prodding from the sub- committee, The city originally estimated the income tax changes would produce $2.2 million next year. Federal tax experts said it should be far higher, and the Commission- agreed to be “optimistic” and estimated $3.4 million.
