Only The Brave Deserve The Sweet 44,000,000 Headaches Millions of citizens are just beginning to wake up—with a shock—to the realization that the 20 per cent deduction that is being taken from their pay envelopes, and turned over to the U. S. Treasury is not all they will have to pay on their 1943 Federal income tax account. On the contrary, they will owe the government considerably more when the year is over. "While there is a general impression among taxpayers that they are automatically current in their tax payment—actually in rare instance only will this be the case," writes Harley L. Lutz, Professor of Public Finance at Princeton University. The impression that the withholding tax is all that the Treasury will demand from taxpayers for 1943 is not the only erroneous notion that exists regarding the law enacted in June and which was supposed to be so simple. As Professor Lutz 'stresses, very few people know that the "pay-as-you- earn" law did not repeal, modify or replace the essentials of the 1942 income tax law; neither did it do away with the nuisance of filing a tax return next March; nor did it relieve the taxpayer, of the obligation to pay the Victory Tax, although its collection by withholding was discontinued after July 1'. What people are going to hate just as much as paying more taxes than they expected to have to pay on their 1943 incomes, is the making out of the March 15 return—that perennial headache which nearly everyone thought had been obviated. The average taxpaying citizen—and there are about 44,000,000 of them—will have a worse time of it than ever in filling*, out the return next year due to the innumerable complexities, inconsistencies and absurdities with which he must juggle in his attempt to. comply with the law. Professor Lutz predicts a revolt "against the foolish and needless reporting, computing and other paper work involved and against the deception involved in implying that the tax at its source had put a large,number of persons on a current basis." The headache has "already started, for about 15,000,000 persons who filed an estimate of income for 1943 on September 15. Another such declaration relating to income in 1944 will be due on March 15. It means that the taxpayer is only on an ■"estimated" current tax basis. .He can pay as he earns only to the extent that he is good at guessing what his in- -come will be and equally good at figuring the tax on his "guess-timated" income. Congress could simplify the whole business, according to Professor Lutz, by doing three things, namely: (1) absorb the Victory Tax into the withholding rate; (2) designate the withholding rate as the normal rate; and (3) eliminate the requirement to file a year-end return by the average wage earner or salaried person. "There is every reason to believe that the few simple suggested changes would sustain and consolidate the good will toward the income tax which was generated by the inauguration of the pay-as-you-go principle," writes Profssor Lutz. "On the other hand, the obvious complications of the existing tax -structure must inevitably produce ill will. In a time when all citizens must .be asked repeatedly to bear-steadily increasing taxes, every precaution is worth taking to prevent a normal resistance to needless confusion and red tape from developing into a resistance to the taxes .themselves." ■ As popular dissatisfaction with the hodge-podge provisions of the pay-as-you-go plan mounts higher and higher, there are dome of the nation's lawmakers who already see that something ought to be done to stem this tide of resentmenL Whether anything will* be done about it remains to be seen; but much of the dissatisfaction would be obviated'by the simple changes suggested by Professor Lutz. Tomorrow's Job "Over-all" is a word product of World War II. It isn't something you wear, either—as it used to be—though it's being worn thin in another sense. Even "logistics" hasn't been able to compete with it. Anyway, since everybody's using it; I am going to. In my opinica there is just one sure over-all answer to the question of whether domestical]*/ we can survive peace. That's jobs. ; ' ' ' ' If widespread unemployment is superimposed on our accumulated national debt, then,God help us. But if, when the boys come home, we can have jobs for them—jobs at. good Pa.y—we can go places and see prosperity such as the U. S. A. has never witnessed before. But these jobs can't be, as the saymg goes, ."on the town." They- must be of the sort that support themselves through production. If they are merely provided by the government, then it will be another sad tale of trying to liye by .taking in each other's washing. This country of ours, with its tremendous national resources, its inventive genius, its education, its intelligence, and its ambition-has the ham and it has.the eggs. If it puts them together it will have ham and eggs, plenty. Or, to swing into economic terms,-if it can produce the volume it can pay its .debt, forget its worried era of deficit financing, quit living off*its' own fat, an'd proceed to higher and happier levels... One adult member of the family may register for all members of the family living together at one address. For each person to be registered, the person doing the registering must bring along War Eation Book Three. All the facts needed to fill out the application will be thc full names, ages, and sex of members of the family, OPA says. Consumers will not have to declare stocks on hand—either commercial or home-canned. Ration Book Four will not be mailed, but will be given to the registrant at time application is filed. The new book will become valid November 1. Green stamps in this book will be used for the purchase of canned goods, OPA officials have announced Stamp No. 29 will be used for sugar. Continuing the present consumption ration for another two and a half months, Stamp 29 will be good for five pounds through January 15, 1944. Book Three must be filled out completely prior to presentation. Stamp 14 in Ration Book No. 1, good for five pounds since Aug. 16, expires the first day of November, while stamps 15 and 16, which have been used for home canning sugar, expire on the last day of October. OPA in Washington reported the first series of green' stamps in Book No. 4—A, B and C—will be valid from Nov. 1 through Dec. 20. Under the customary overlap, the last Blue stamps of Book: No. 2—X, Y and Z—will be valid through Nov. 20. Values of the Green stamps will be the same as the Blue. Green stamps will be used for processed foods ' only until the ration "token" system goes into effect early next year. Thereafter the Blue and Red stamps ,of Book No. 4 will be used for processed foods and meats in conjunction with Red and Blue change tokens. With the switch to Book No. 4 the stamps remaining in Book No. 3 probably will be held in reserve, OPA said. Except for the brown stamps being used currently for meat, stamp 1 on the "airplane" sheet of the book is-..the only one thus far assigned. It "will be valid for shoes beginning Nov. 1st. Besides North Canton, schools in the area of the Canton rationing board at which the new books will be issued are: Canton Twp, Canton Twp High school, North Industry, Waco, Trump Road and Prairie College; East- Sparta, East -Sparta High school and Sandyville; Nimishil- (Continued on Page Three) LT.

That constitutes a real challenge of Government* policies. The meaning of this situation is that no high officials or powerful political leaders can escape the great questions pertaining to "winning the peace," and saving our own soldiers and sailors from want and -a chance to earn-a- living- after the-war.- ■ ■ -X' tivities from which reports are yet to bc. rsceived :ne Canal Fulton, Genoa, Greentown, Jackson twp., Marlboro, and Robertsvillc.

STcSm"^ identification of the.four crew members and, six passengers impossible. I bi&hc]i,' ■ . ■ •■ - — • . One of the answers to this prob iem is the- Cadet Nurse Corps, which the government is backing. -The Cadet Corps offers young w<i- men a chance to get training, with living expenses paid, with distinctive uniforms provided free, and with an allowance ranging from $15 to $30 a month for the training period of 24 to 36 months Every nurse in Mercy hospital has enrolled in this branch of the service and with few exceptions those in Aultman have done likewise. A girl can enter the U. S. Cadet Nurse Corps at a younger age than she can enter other branches of the armed services. As soon as she enrolls, the nursing- assistance she gives helps send a graduate nurse to the front. And when the cadet herself graduates she, too, may join the armed services. Army and Navy nurses are commissioned officers and receive pay, allowances, and insurance according to army and navy pay schedules After her war-time service, the trained nurse will find need of her services, helping to handle problems of disease, malnutrition, and war shock. Her profession offers many types of career in the postwar world—administrative, educational, industrial, public health, institutional, and • community organization—with pay that on the average is better than that of women in other professions. Possibly because nursing develops qualities which are admired by men, a higher percentage of nurses marry than in any other women's profession. Many nurses take time out to marry and raise a family, then return to nursing, while others practice their profession on a part-time basis to add to family income. Young women between 17 and 35 who are high school graduates and who would like to become cadet nurses should go to their local hospital for information or write to thc U. S. Cadet Nurse Corps, Box 88, New York, N. Y. _ o Town and Country drive ftears Quota MRS. C. C.
