Who I'uys U, $. Open 1 1 ing Expanses ' Don't gloat too hard if you were one of the people who didn't need lo pay any federal income taxes this year. Don'1 for a mimite think you're gelling away with something. You're not. You're paying for the privilege of ile- inocriicy, just the same as Die mitn who mailed a check with liis lax relui'iis is paying for it. Only yon don't notice it quite as much. Jt'-yoii paid an income lax, yon know, at least, where some of (lie money to rim the _ country is coming from, liut the combined income and' inheritance taxes collected this year will make up less than 25 per cent of the money • needed to operate the government. .The 1940 census will probably .show about 132,000,000 people in tlic United Slates, but only 3,500,000 of them are paying income taxes. This means Dial only one out of every i!8 persons pays an income lax, or one out of every IB voting citizens. Unele Sam will collect about two billion dollars from . this form of taxation aud from inheritance taxes put together— but the expenses for the year will total nine billion. The income tax, in fad, just pays for \VPA, with very little or nothing loll over. The number of person.s on WPA'lias varied between two and three million since 3<)35. A year ago there \yere nearly three million collecting •;.',' WP.A, 'checks— almost as nia.ny pcys'qjw .::«W;M-w 1 e i *|Kiy»ig- income (axes. Tnc fcil- eral ; government spent $2,065,000,000 for- this form of work-relief alone during the fiscal year ending in June, • 1939; and the year ending next June will have cost about \\/.> billions. Who pays for the rest of the «ov- crnmenlal expenditures? You do, of course. U comes in various indirect ways— customs, corporation taxes, undivided profits taxes, . laxe.s on checks ami on safely deposit boxes, taxes on cigarets, liquor and amusements, pro-. cessiug taxes and taxes on gasoline. Altogether, Uncle Sam has ligm-cd. otic several hundred different ways of extracting cash from his citizens. Blost of them the average person never oven notices from day to day. I'ainiess taxation? At Ihe moment ol extraction, yes, because you don't "otice it; in the aggregate, no. fu a year's lime, the pennies and nickels add up to incredible amounts. And remember, uhat Uncle Sam doesn't collect in taxes, he borrows. That's a lil- llo matter which your children, who have had nothing to say about if will have to settle up.

In her heart she believed lhat (hey might havc worked out a life—if Paul had loved her. 7n her heart she knew lhat he would always and forever live in the closeness of her thoughts, that no one would take his place. * * t JT was when she had spent two months as a member ot the Temple family that Ann attended a house parly with. Steve. On Saturday aflemoon they drove (o n summer lodge in Wisconsin. He was iirdent and worshipful. Ann was pleasantly aware of her stunning clothes, her correct baggage, and (he orchid on her shoulder. The week-end turned out to be .in episode of drinks and more drinks, of Imid laughter and shrill voices. Steve wa.? unable io make Ihe homeward drive and Ann look 1hc wheel. Ho slept noisily and she rtosplsed him. She had been bored sick with the house parly. Flowers arrived the following day, bushels of them. The telephone rang- constantly. Ann Ignored Ihc floral peace offerings and refused lo answer the telephone. The second day Steve came without calling. lie round Ann in th c garden. "Hollo, Ann." he said, twisting Ins hat like an embarrassed school boy. "Hello, Sieve." she answered, snipping roses induslriously. "You got drunk, hideously, rot lenly drunk." . "I've been sober as a judge eve since. Talk to me, won't you?" Go ahead. I'm listening," I love you, Ann," he blurtc. ou 'k,M va ". 1 J ; ou to mafr y me '" No, (hanks."

"Because I don't want to." ,' s . 'I because I get drunk?" That s one o£ the reasons." He took her hand, pressing baeV ie fingers one by one, looking at the pink palm.

"Ann—if I'd stop drinking—" . I won't be obligated lo love •ou, she said. "No, Steve-, you 6o your way and I'll go mine." He still held her hand. Bending us head, ho kissed the palm. "J'U o your way, Ann," he said Ecri- susly. "No matter where you go, U be lagging along—and I'll not o drunk." .jTEVE was as good as his word. He devoted himself lo Ann vith a persistence and subtle uoivledgo of technique that nally brought results. While she id not Jove him, she enjoyed bc- ig with him, npprccialcd his nany thoughtful kindnesses, came ) depend on his devotion. They rifted away from Irene's excite- lent-mad crowd and sought sim- Icr pastimes. One hot afternoon they lay on ic beach just below the Temple arclen. A leafy elm shaded them roin the torrid rays, of the sun. hey had been in rind out oE the •ater for an hour. -iVVray; beside lem held tall glasses o'f iced ofl'ee and a silver tray of sand- i wichcs. Sipping Ihc coffee, Ann said, "I thought you were engaged to marry Irene when I first met her." "I like Irene," he said. "I think we would have been married if you hadn't come along. And we would have made a go of il. We're, companionable, we understand the same kind of life." "You don't understand me at all, do you, Steve?" "I'm doing my best." lie grinned at her over his glass. "When we you going to break down nnd many me?" "I don't know," she said, adding wistfully, "I wauled to be madly In love with Ihe man i married, so in lovo lhal nothing else mattered." , L He put his hand over hers, "I'll * make you love me," he said. Jt~ was a typical remark and Ann saw his change ot attitude, his saner way of living, as it was, a phase, an adventurous gesture. He had not changed, not really. He was simply intrigued by her reluctance and playing the game ol pursuit as he played every other game, to the last ditch. He would go luck (o his cock- luils and faulosliu behavior when Ihe chase was ended. His love was nol n tragic emotion. Only .lis pride would be hurl it she refused him. «•• s * to decide to marry Sieve, Ann's thoughts turned jack to Paul.

And then, ne Sunday afternoon in lale Sep- .cmber, Mr. Temple asked Ann to all on an old couple who lived n the West Side.
