This is an original action prosecuted by the Disciplinary Commission of this court by information under Rules 3-21 and 3-22,
charging the respondent with the conviction of a felony in the United States District Court, for the Southern District of
Indiana, praying that he be disbarred for that reason. A response has been filed in two paragraphs which admits the conviction,
and argues in mitigation of the present charge. The reply of the Disciplinary Commission denies and takes issue on the argumentative
allegations. Since no controverted issue of fact is presented, we do not feel it is necessary to appoint a Commissioner to
make findings of fact. The judgment of conviction in the District Court discloses the respondent pleaded guilty to a charge of evading part of the
income tax due and owing by him and his wife to the United States of America for the calendar year of 1950 in violation of
Title 26, U.S.C.A. Int. Rev. Code of 1939 as amended, § 145(b).
