It was natural that the

that the senator voted for the exce profit tax law.
Senator Norri, however, brings out the fact that, an
usual, Senator Hitchcock was absent and notvtrtirijr when
the important revenue bill of 1 117, containing the excess
profit tax, was passed.
In defense of his action in
he was absent from the city and could not vote for this law
and that the reason he didn't vote for the amendments that
Morris wanted was because Norm wanted the excess profit
taxes "too high."

Senator Hitchcock voted for the repeal.

And now Net us go a step further in investigating the
record of the democratic candidate's efforts to retain (?) the
excess profit tax :
On November 7, 1921, the revenue bill, containing the
repeal of excess profit taxes, which according to the senator'
organ, prevented the ex-service men iit securing the bonus
at this time, came up for final vote in the senate. Senator
Hitchcock was not "out of town" this time. He wes pres
ent but not voting. "N. V" as shown by the following re
production from the record:

After the revenue bill was

agreed, it became necessary for the senate to vote again
on the "conference report." This was final passage of the
revenue bill which repealed the excess profit tax. ' This came
up on November 23 1921. Here again, Senator Hitchcock
was not absent from the city. He was present, but not vot

It is thus that Senator Hitchcock "opposes" the repeaf
of the excess profit tax. , ,
Thus, the whole, campaign of Senator Hitchcock against
the repeal of excess profit tax and in behalf of the ex-service
boys, is revealed to be bunk, just plain bunk.
