"Sacrifice" Snlc For some timo Dorothy Gregg had been considering buying n fur coat. Her interest was quickened when she happened to notice a classified advertisement which read: "Lady leaving for the South will sacrifice new fur coat nt half price for cash. Telephone for appointment." ~~ ® Dorothy cnlletl the number given In the advertisement. "I would like to know something about the cont you have for sale," she said, "the kind of fur, the price and si/.e—" From the description given hej- on the telephone, the coal seemed about what she wanted and the price was very reasonable. She made an appointment, and later in the day, called to inspect the garment. "1 am Miss Gregg," she told the lady who answered the doorbell. "I came to look nt the cont." "Oil, yes, Miss Gregg, come right in, please. J am Mrs. Rudgc." As Dorothy entered she exclaimed: "What an attractive apartment!" "We like it,'.. 1 said Mrs. Rudgc with n smile of satisfaction. "If you'll just have n chair I'll get the coat." Mrs. Rudge went into another room, and returned a monent Inter with the cont which she handed to Dorothy. "You probably know furs as well as I do," said Mrs. Rudgc. "You cun sec that this is a fine quality of Mink- dyed Muskrat." "It's very nice," said Dorothy. "But it looks us though it had never been worn." "Oh, it hasn't!" said Mrs. Rudge. "I just bought it a short time ago and the weather h»s been too warm to wear it. Now, since my husband lias been transferred to Florida, I'll have no use for it." "It's a good style and seems well made—" "Yes," said Mrs. Rudge, "It's dressy as well as serviceable. A very nice coat in every way. Won't you try it on? There's a large mirror here in the next room." Dorothy put the coat on and studied the effect in the mirror. "Oh," she said, "it's much too large for me. I'm afraid 1 can't use it." "It could easily be altered," suggested Mrs. Rudgc. "Why, it would have to be practically made over. I wouldn't want to go to that trouble and expense." Then Mrs. Rudgc seemed to have a sudden inspiration. "Miss Gregg," she cried. "Why didn't 1 think of it be- President, Ailing Still From Tooth, Quits Fishing Trip Poison Prom Extracted Molar Continues to Bother Him HE RETURNS HOME Steams Back to Miami to Catch Train Again for Washington MIAMI, Fla.—</P)—President Roosevelt decided to cut three days from his vacation schedule Friday and to start for Washington Saturday due to what he described as delayed healing of his gum. The executive had an infected tooth extracted November 18. He absorbed much poison from the pocket left by the extraction and one of these openings still was draining when he left Washington November 27 for his fishing cruise on which he hoped to regain strength. Officials at temporary White House headquarters here described his general condition as excellent but said he could not get the dental treatment on the boat that he could in Washington. In a message to Secretary Marvin Mclntyre here the president said that because of the slowness in healing of his gum he thought it advisable to return direct to Washington and not make his planned visits to Warm Springs and Gainesville, Ga., on the way. Sliirtcd Nov. 15 The president first noticed the aching tooth the night of November 15. He lost a lot of sleep that night and next morning Cnpt. Ross T. Mclnyre, naval physician, and Lieut. Com. Arthur H. Yamio, naval dentist, were called in. The condition was accompanied by a slight temperature which hung on for several days but never exceeded normal by more than one degree. Dr. Ynndo tried to save the tooth but decided to remove it November 18. Meanwhile tho president's condition was aggravated by a stomach disorder officially "described as "gaslro-intes- tinal" from something he ate but this was remedied quickly. At one time the president's jaw was swollen the size of a grapefruit, an aide said. To Return Monday Dr. Mclntyre is aboard the Potomac but the naval dentist remained in Washington. The president now will reach Washington Monday evening instead of Thursday as planned originally. He was to have landed here Monday and gone on to Warm Springs for o 24-hour visit, including a belated Thanksgiving dinner with the infantile paralysis patients there. He also had planned to speak informally Wednesday at the dedication of a square named for him nt Gainesville, Ga. He told Mclntyre to express his regrets to officials at both places and to toll them he would make the visits later on. The Potomac will leave the Dry Tortugas islands, 300 miles southwest of here in the Gulf, Saturday afternoon and arrive at Miami around 2 p. in. Sunday, Half an hour later the president will start by special train for Washington. Spend Afternoon Fishing Another message from the Potomac late Friday said the president and his seven fishing companions trolled again this afternoon. Responding to newspapermen's requests, Secretary James Roosevelt said tho catch of the president and the (Continued on Page Two) night and Sunday. *^ VOLUME 39—NUMBER.46 BAB, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4,1987 My sister is about your size—she with us, you know—and she fore! lives bought a new fur coat when I got this one!" "But maybe she wouldn't want to sell it?" "Oh, yes she would," said Mrs. Rudge. "She is going South with us.. I had forgotten for the moment, that she asfted me to try and sell her coat. I'll show it to you." The sister's coat proved to be a black Persian Lamb—and it fitted Dorothy perfectly. "That's a much better coat for you than mine, anyway," said Mrs. Rudge. "You couldn't find anything more becoming!" "You really think so?" "Yes, indeed, Miss Gregg. If I had your coloring I'd wear nothing but black. It's perfectly charming on you!" 'How much docs she want for it?" "Well, she paid a tittle more for it than I did for mine, but since you wore disappointed in the other one, you can have this one for $65." "It hasn't been worn, either, has it?" "No," said Mrs. Rudgc. "In fact the price tag is on it yet. See there? fhat's what she paid for it—$135. And it fits you as though it had been made [or you. You wouldn't even need to move a button!" "Very well, I'll take it," said Dorothy. Dorothy paid for the coat and left, well pleased with her bargain. When she went shopping the next day, however, she was surprised to find other coats exactly like hers un sale in a local store at $15 less than she had paid. But Dorothy Gregg had never heard of the old scheme of selling merchandise from an apartment. And she had no svay of knowing that there probably hud been a dozen other coats in that same apartment, all ready to be 'sacrificed!"

That will put you one up in practically any tax argument. A lot of basic, fundamental things about taxes which everybody ought to know, but scarcely anybody does, are summed up in the December Fortune. And if you think you know about taxes, try yourself out on these tax slants from Fortune's article: The annual tax bill of the United States is now about $12,000,000,000.' That is getting on toward $100 a year for every man, woman and child in the nation; nearly $400 for the head of every family. Of that $12,000,000,000 tax bill only $5,000,000,000, or much less than half, goes to Washington in taxes for the federal government. That surprises you a little, eh? Little Units Get It Who gets the rest, then? The states? No. they get only $2,500,000,000. }t is the small f local government taxing units. 175,000 of them in the country, which get all the $4,500,000,000 re- nitiining in that tax bill.
