THURSDAY, MARCH 28, 1940 BLYTIIEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS IN PHJPPIKS Surplus Of 8] Million In 1935 Nearly Wiped Out Should Hair Bo Up or Down?— She Says 'Both' By RICHAKI) 0. WILSON United Tress Siafl Comspoudciit .MANILA. P. 1., March M.—Philippines President Manuel L, Quezon lias sharpened his pruning knife to halt the annually increasing cost of government in Hie islands since establishment of the Commonwealth in 1835. Tlie Commonwealth government has levied many new taxes lo meet steadily increasing governmental bttdgeli, but the returns from these taxes have failed to keep pace with expenditures. The un- appropriated, unallocated cash surplus of nearly $8,500,000 at the time Hie United States handed over control of the insular government to Qucwm's Commonwealth administration has dwindled unlit it will barely total $1,000,000 at the end of the next fiscal year. "This situation demands Die exercise ol caution," Quezon warned the National Assembly in pointing out. various economies he proposed to effect. Largest economy provided in his budjet for the next fiscal year wns in national defense. He proposed a saving of $578.394 by combining the Philippines army and constabulary. By eliminating the annual national - mobilization of army trainees, an estimated $1.000.000 will be saved. Tax Hcccipts Down Disappointing returns from the increased (ax levies of Hie last two years have been largely responsible for the present pinning ol expenditures, with total revenue collections of $45,321,193 for the fiscal year ended June 3D, 1939. the Commonwealth enacted a new revenue code designed to produce an additional $5.600.000 annually. However, bureau of internal revenue estimates anticipate collections of $43,718.325 for the fiscal year ending next June 30, or more than $l,5GO,QOD less than for the previous year. "When the National Assembly was passing the new tax laws, leading business men warned that basic changes in the tax structure would disrupt business and would not increase revenues," the Philippines Free Press commented editorially. "Assemblymen listened tolerantly •ytnti then passed the new tax late -But. when ths new budget was presented lo the National Assembly a few days ago. it became apparent that the business men knew what they were talking about." Hiiilditip Program in Doiilit What effect the dwindling governmental revenues will have on the Quezon administrations ambitious public building program remains unclear. The American Congress lias forbidden the use of proceeds of (he coconut oil excise tax refunded to the Philippines by the U. S. Treasury for anything but economic readjiistmenl in anticipation of an Independent Philippines in 19-Ki. Originally, Quezon's government, had allocated part of the. more than $50,000.000 "windfall" thus far received from the excise tax refund to building stately new governmental buildings, and construction of several of these buildings has already ] been started. Extensive additions and improvements have been made to historic Malancaliang Palace, home of Spanish and later American governors, general until it became the residence of the Philippines president in 1933. Aero.™ the Pasl? river, which the stately palact overlooks, a large tract ol land lias been acquired and converted tiHo Malacimanj recreation park for IBS of Filipino chief executives.

PERILS OF1E I 7 uel Taiiks Developed To Resist Leakage Fvoni Bullets LONDON, March '28. (UP)— The mtr has revived Interest In the so- called "bullet-proof" fuel (nnk, llio development of wlilclt was begun as a result of the World Wnr. Goon after IQ1B, several Inventions for limiting (tie damage to tanks by bullets, aiul for prevent^ ing fire, were submitted to the ulr ministry. In most eases some nurt of rubber overcoat was suggested to se.11 Die hole wade by (he lull- let in passing through the timk. The Idea was Hint the bullet on emerging would stretch the rubber before piercing 11. Then, when the rubber reacted and contracted (lie hole made would be almost, negligible. About that time Jack Imhei, ;i prominent, airplane designer. Invented ;i tank which lie believed could Ijc rldillcd by bullets without ire 01 leakage. Ills lank ccmslstcrt if three main parts: A thin shell it tinned steel, a tubular frmne- vork upon which the baffles to U1LDEGARDE, the exotic liltle 1 - 1 blonde whose personality and songs have charmed New York, lias a new coiffure which is bolh gay and practical. It's an up-and- down, with hair at front and sides swept up to form n cluster of curls atop the singer's head and back seclion worn in a long bob. For evening, Hilciegarde pins a bow or a fresh flower in the topknot of curls. The tailored blouse is green and white striped silk. lienditures as a means of cm-tail ing governmental expenses was not entirely unexpected. Several timci since German absorption of Austria, Ciiechaslovaltia and Poland the adroit Filipino leader has publicly expressed doubt whether a heavily aimed small nation car ivert armed aggression from J larger nation. Mimlnl Pumpkin Faces A iladisoii, O., faimer-invemo owns a -pntciit for n speciall; shapeij .mold in which a growlni pumpkin is enclosed. Facial lea lures form on tiie vegetable as th, pumpkin grows and fills the mold keep the gasoline from slushing, were mounted, and u soil coal of pure paru rubber, There were no rivets connecting the .stiffening frame and the baffles to the shell, Hlvels N ml miglc* were found lo sprcud, or spin (he bullets. I'llzcs Offcici! by 'J'anks The air ministry olfere:! various prizes for crash-proof lnuks In 1822, when Uullet-iirout qualities were k-ss important than flic-proof projection. '1'he first prize, wns wan by n Silvnlown tank with dl.shcd-ln sides niul dchidiuule rubber covering. The tank wns designed 'so that pressure would only deform it Instead of causing a hurst. The Henderson Siili>ly tanV/ Is said to be crash proof ami bulletproof. (Hid Is n.sed in (lie Miles lln.sler training plane, In this design (here Is u compound rubber sea) between the in- ncr nnd outer shell. The Innk weighs about l.'js pounds per gallon, llullel holes can be repaired In about 12 minutes. The compound filling is non-eoriodiblc nnd insoluble In gasoline. The buffles and internal fittings are .secured to the walls of the dink by n self-rclrnslng device so Hint the. fuel does nol tenr (lie baffles away from the shell In a crasli. In a French dcbign, adapted by the British, protection Is obtained from a rcsilfcnl covering applied to the outside of the tank. This In linn is protected by mi outer layer of relhiloscd green fabric. A ooverhi" one centimeter 1 thick is supposed lo make the lank proof agaiusl crasli and ordinary machine gun bullets. Two centimeters \ PAGE i'lVE? will provide protection agulnnt 20 m. in. airplane cannon. Mil!
