Question: have you changed your views on the tobacco taxes?

President: I have asked various people to look it over. The situation, of course, depends a good deal on the amount of money or revenue the Government is going to get. I am perfectly willing to have the tobacco tax restudied but we have the same number of dollars come into the Treasury from one source or another.
