USE ALGEBRAJ IN TARIFF UNKNOWN QUANTITY "X" TO FIGURE IN BILL. . Values on Which To Base Duties Would Be Found By Algebraic Formula in Senate Measure. Washington, Jan. 17 When you were a youngster in the mesh of a high school curriculum, you often wondered what earthly use algebra would or could be to you, in after lifa. The senate finance commit- commit- t tee will furnish one answer when it turnip out the so-called so-called so-called permanent permanent tariff bill. i I With this measure in operation, customs 'appraisers, importers, manufacturers and many others frequently will stumble acrcss the ancient and a'most forgotten enemy, enemy, (the unknown qusntity of "x." -This -This bobs up in practically all of the sevdral plans for assessing assessing import duties. .

A valu? on which . to base & duty would have to be found by algebraic algebraic formula. This has led to a suggestion that opportunity might be given for underpaid "math" teachers and coFege professors to improve their incomes by increasing their activities to the various customs houses. Customs appraisers do not anticipate any rush in this direction, direction, however. They hold that they can dust off the old relic of high school days , or acquire a new one aVid brush up on the devious wavs of findinsr an pnemv whirh l at least so far as they were con- con- J cerned, they thought had been laid away forever. There has been a suggestion also that if world conditions become much more complicated the committee committee in handling future tariff bHls might have to resort to trigonometry trigonometry or even the succeeding grade of calculus. Members of the committee are having enough difficulty, trow-ever, trow-ever, trow-ever, in crossing the present bridge without figuring on the crossing of one they have set to reach. 3
