Merritt, who was charged with assault and battery with intent to kill, is held in the county jail in default of $2,500 bond. Deputy Sheriffs tJ. N. Maeey and G. H. Berry, who investigated the case, said the shooting was the aftermath of an argument after a craps game si. weeks ago-' Schcnck Blames Government for Corn Shortage "A current shortage of corn on Indiana farms for live stock feeding purposes is a result of government al fumbling," Ilnssil E. Schenek, president of (he Indiana Farm Bu reau, Inc., contended yesterday. "The trouble started more than a year ago when the government placed ceilings on corn, holding the price below 80 cents," Mr. Schenek said. "Now, as a result, corn is being held In storage in many of the large corn producing areas when it is needed by Indiana farmers." The Farm Bureau president asserted that many Indiana farms, particularly those In central Indiana, consume more corn than they produce. "Corn crop prospects for this year in Indiana are unusually good," he said, "but t lint does not solve the present problems of the farmers." $1,389 In Gems, Clothes Stolen From Auto The theft of jewelry and clothing valued at $1,389 from an automobile parked Saturday night in the 100 block of West Georgia street was reported to police yes terday by Ervin Hinkes, 41 years old, of Pittsburgh, Pa.

FRANK FOWLER BROWN. Frank Fowler Brown, 62 years old, 8.10 North West, street, died yesterday after an illness of six weeks. A vaudeville performer, he was best known for his performance as "Red Feather" in the Cole and Johnson show, ''Red Moon." Mr. Brown also .was director of the choir of Ihe Bethel A.M.E. Church for many years. Funeral services will be in the Bethel A.M.E. Church at. 1 o'clock tomorrow afternoon. Burial will be in Crown Hill cemetery. Survivors are a sister, Mrs. Julia Ferris and a brother, Charles Brown, both of Indianapolis. An act of the 194.3 General As sembly, fixing the time when annual meetings must be held for the adoption of budgets and tax rates, will become effective when the new laws are promulgated, -possibly near Sept. 1. Harry Miesse, secretary of the Indiana Taxpayers' Association, has called attention to the dates included in this statute and urges that they be kept in mind by all taxpayer who wish to protect their own interests. The date provided for the adoption of budgets and rates in civil towns and cities is the last Monday in August each year, for school cities and towns the date is the last Thursday in August, for townships the last Tuesday of August, and for counties the first Tuesday after the first Monday in September. Since the exact date for promulgation of the new laws will depend upon their publication in book form, Mr. Miesse "urged taxpayers to be especially on the alert. If they do not become effective until after Sept. 1, of course the August dates listed above will not be fol lowed and the dates under the old law will be operative. Notice to Be Given. Notice by publication must be given to taxpayers of the meetings for the adoption of all budgets, at least 18 days prior to the meeting. Any taxpayer has a right to attend these meetings and be heard on any matter pertaining to the budget af fecting his taxes. "Now, more than ever before," said Mr. Miesse, "such savings as are made in the cost of government will have to be made at home. Despite the enormous and neces sary increase in Federal expenditures, due to war's demands, there is a tendency on the part of many public officials to continue spending on a grand scale in the local units. We are reminded constantly to make sacrifices and endure hardships to the end that we may help win the war quickly and completely, but (here are many governmental units where the greatest unwillingness is shown to any sug gestion for economy. This attitude on the part of many officials makes it all the more necessary for taxpayers to remember these dates, attend budget hearings, question proposed expenditures and insist that property taxes be kept as low as possible. We will fail our armed forces if we permit money to be wasted in needless governmental activities at home. "Due to laws enacted by the last General Assembly all taxing units in the slate are faced with tax ncreases. The laws that will affect taxes most, in this respect have to do with salaries of governmental employes, and taxpayers should check carefully all budget items in order to hold lax increases to the minimum. Poor Relief Excessive. "Poor relief is an item that Is still excessive in many taxing units. It is under the direct, supervision of the township trustee and the budget for this item of expense will be adopted at the same lime as other township budgets. There Is no reason why poor relief in 1944 should not be the lowest since 1929. "The number of persons receiving old-age assistance and assistance for the care of dependent children has decreased somewhat during'the last two years, and this decrease should continue next year, thus reflecting a decrease In welfare budgets. "Hospitals which have received considerable taxpayer support in the past should be able to operate on a more self-supporting basis. "Taxpayers should be watchful for additional appropriations. While they are not a part of the annual budget, such items deplete working balances and this deficiency has to be made up by the next tax levy established. The budget law provides for additional appropriations only in the case of an emergency but many such items are allowed that might be eliminated by proper investigation. Requests for additional appropriations are published in the local newspapers and taxpayers should not permit unnecessary- items to be allowed." m If tad m QUALITY TOILETRIES These preparation are made especially for us ... of the finest ingredient.

Elmer Taf-linger, Indianapolis artist, is one of the founders, owing to the fact that he has called attention publicly to the large crop of tomatoes he is this cause, he has run into that pretty little visitor , known as the tomato worm. At request of The Star, he has drawn the above sketch showing how he operates on the tomato battle line. Vandal Catch Puts Gardener In Club Henry R. Wade, 1934 South Sheffield avenue, yesterday caught two vandals in his Victory garden in the 1700 block of West McCarty street. And because he and police recovered three-fourths bushel of tomatoes, carrots and squash which the vandals allegedly stole, he was invited by Elmer E. Taflinger, artist-president of the Victory Gardeners' Boasters' Club, to join the organization. "If one of the vandals had got away, Mr. Wade would have been eligible to membership in the inner circle of the club," Mr. Taflinger said. The vandals were two boys, one 3 years old. and the other 11. They were turned over to the juvenile aid department and their parents notified. Mr. Wade recovered tne vegetables and took them home.

Many people would say the most important (or ONLY important) job in ihis war is that of the man right in the thick of the fighting. Any military man would tell you that all our fighting men (presumably 10,000,000 or more of them) couldn't do a thing without the food and equipment being provided by the men and women back home. Only because the Quartermaster Dept. is doing so much so well are we on our way to winning this war sooner, easier, at less cost in money, effort, and in LIVES. Likewise, on the "home front" all those who labor to produce planes, ships, guns, ammunition and all else that is needed at the front would be unable to carry on if they were not supplied with the ordinary necessities of life (goods and services) on a regular schedule. Yes, any man working to produce, process, distribute and SERVE food to America's toiling millions has an IMPORTANT "job"-in fact, it is a solemn responsibility, INDISPENSABLE to the war effort. Persons desiring to engage in "essential" work will not all find employment in the glamorous role of the shop mechanic or the lady welder and even in our great war factories, the CAFETERIA workers are considered as much a part of the war effort as the electricians. Please remember that smiling young lady who so cheerfully serves you at Russet today is doing "essential" work,, too. And we have "essential" positions here for two or three more of her, right now, TODAY. R usset Iho Unuiual CAFETERIA 07 SOUTH O I KERIDIAJI IS YOUR LIVER ASLEEP?
