That is just what happened in the case of the sales tax. Sales lax proponents said that a 10 per cent levy on all retail sales would net a neat six billion a year, j They spoke glibly of the simplicity of collection; the tapping of our untaxed millions (the lower two- thirds of wage earners, under $3,000 a year, who pay a comparatively small amount of our tax total); the levy of a tax that would hit the spenders and thus lower the danger of inflation. Here is what happened. Proponents settled down to the business of trying to write a law. If, they said, they were going to hit the small taxpayers that hard, they would have to give them relief from some other taxes. All right, repeal the Victory tax. Immediately-, about one-third to one half of that prospective $6,000,000,000 disappeared. All right. Raise income exemptions. To make that relief that, it appeared, about two billion would have to be sacrificed. How about exempting food, seed, feed, fertilizer, farm machinery and a few other things. At the 10 per cent rate, that would just about cut the six billion in half. In addition, along came the retailers and tax collectors to explain all the complications and collection costs. They had the figures from 31 states, where sales taxes have been tried or are now in force. The retailers, already groaning under ration points, price ceilings, OPA and WPB questionnaires, wage deductions, and what-not, explained that any additional bookkeeping burdens would just about put them out of business. They asked that if such a law is enacted the government compensate them for collection of the tax (as has been done in eight of the states where sales taxes are in force). Then came labor to say pretty flatly that if a sales tax is levied, compensating wage increase in the lower brackets would have to be allowed. They argued that 10 per cent sales tax on the wage earners who put their entire income into the necessities of life would mean a 10 per cent reduction in their standard of living, while it would mean no change at all to those in the upper income brackets. To compensate for this would mean a revision of the Little Stee wage formula and perhaps an opening wedge to wage increases all up the line, resulting in an al most certain breakthrough of th< inflation line. There, briefly, is the argumen against the sales tax as it has beer presented here in recent weeks anc for the moment, at least, it has the sales taxers gasping. fU. S.

Fnllerton, Jr.- Associated Press Sports Columnist New York, Nov. 10 (.'P) —The wave of Notre Dame enthusiasm that has been sweeping New York apparently hasn't engulfed the pro- footballers . . . We asked Buff Donelli, assistant coach of the one-victory Dodgers, whether he'd trade after a sinus operation but probably won't be able lo do much, if any, coaching before the season ends . . Red Rolfe, baseball and basketball ct.-ach at Yale, has been devoting time this fall t ' ' ' Ball Stealing of Jim White Top Grid Play ,By TED MEIER New York, Nov. 10 (/P)— The outstanding lineman of the week was tackle Jim White, of Notre Dame. White's stealing the ball from the arms of Army's Glenn Davis was the turning point in the Irish-Cadet classic before 76,000 at Yankee Stadium. The theft on the Army eight-yard line in the third period set up Notre Dame's second touch down in a 2G-0 triumph. Navy's Center, Jock Martin, was the second outstanding lineman. His inspirational play 'at Franklin Field in Philadelphia spurred the Middies to a 24-7 victory over Pennsylvania. There were numerous other line men whose feats stood out throughout the nation. Army's center, Casimir Myslinski, earned high praise from Frank Leahy, Notre Dame coach, for the manner in which he spilled several Irish plays. Another center, Bill Gray, of Southern California, was best on the Pacific Coast. Although the Trojans lost to the San Diego Naval Training Station Gray made countless tackles and scored USC's only touchdown on a 40-yard run. In the Southwest Monte Moncrief, 195-pound tackle of the undefeated, but tied Texas Aggies, didn't yield a yard against South- I ern Methodist. J. C.

Houston, Texas, Nov. 10 (/P)— Come November and there's the usual belated swish of the Rico Owls — high up in the Southwest Conference football. They can look like the government debt in October but clown the stretch Jess Ncoly's teams arc the most feared in the circuit. . Two weeks ago the fans figured the Owls would be lucky to win a game. Th«V beat Texas Tech but that day found the anchor of the line — Tackle Charlie Malmbcrg— leaving the team. Last week Rice beat Arkansas by the same margin Texas A. and M. did. Rice plays A. and M. here Saturday. The fans think there's so much chance of an upset 20,000 arc expected to be in the stands. It's just history being repeated.

It is a solemn moment, and the congregation is kneeling in devout attention. The camera is concerned here with the occupants of one pew — one family, four little tryside are a little bit of China for the cameras of "Dragon Seed." And beside this bit of China, behind the cameras, is a great big bit of Mctro-Goldwyn-Mayer a business office, a mess tent, tent dressing rooms for hundreds of extras (Chinese mainly, a few Mexicans and Indians to serve as "background Chinese".), make-up tents, a schoolroom for child actors, a REPHAN'S AIDS FOR THE WINTER SHOPPER boys, one little girl, a father and a mother.

Millions of our boys are to see action on the fronts, and the casualty lists will grow. What better example of courage for other bereaved or fearful families than Selena Royle, from the Broad way stage, is playing the mother and Thomas Mitchell the father. Both share Bacon's enthusiasm. As Mitchell puts it, "Except at the end, this isn't a war story at all. It's a family story — American through and through. The audience knows, of course, about the tragic blow in the ending, but thai knowledge should serve only to make the rest of it more powerful." The seekers after "escapist" pictures, obviously, will not add "The Sullivans" to their list. But you can see how another type of escapist —the grief-stricken who want to escape into lhe grief of others— could find consultation here and, as Bacon suggests, new courage..

C.

Indicating the results at Moscow had exceeded even his high hopes, Eden asserted the major success of the parley was not in its radically new consultative machinery, but In "the basis of good will and confidence" which it established If among the three powers for'deal- ing with future problems.

Berlin broadcasts pictured the whole Russian front from the invested Crimea to the frozen fields around Nevel ablaze with heavy Soviet offensives. A violent tank battle was reported near the White Russian rail center of Gomel where Berlin said the Russians attacked "with numerous rifle divisions, masses of tanks and planes" in an attempt to break narrow sector of the front along the Sozh river, tributary of the Dnie- per. The Germans said they destroyed 217 tanks. The fresh Russian gains presumably carried the Ukrainian armies closer than 40 miles from the rail center of Zhitamir, as reported at midnight by Moscow. At that time, he Russians were 42 miles directly west of Kiev and lunging- swiftly, forward on a 70-mile front; The German corn'munique acknowledged the Russians had made "a local dent" in a fresh attack northeast of the Crimean port of Kerch and told of attacks'around Pcrckop on the narrow land bridge tying the Crimea to the mainland.

One reason the Treasury's survey New York to nasn 't brought in more returns is that some people have been suspicious that it was a dodge to get income tax information, tips on cartel agreements or secret deals.

Another reason the returns have been slow in coining in is that the distribution of report forms through Federal Reserve Banks put them I into the hands of only the bigger ! investors and the commercial banks themselves. Now the banks are asking their depositors if they have foreign holdings to list, and information on the survey is being put in the hands of postmasters.

As chairman of the War Labor Board I am bound to adhere to and apply that policy, and as a citizzcn, I believe it is essential to the American worker and I have just begun to fight for it." "That," questioned a newsman, "is a reaffirmalion of the hold-the- line doctrine, isn't it?" "You betch," was the determined reply.
