There are the people who think taxes are jxist plain too high. There are others who think taxes are too high, but don't see any way to do anything about it. There are those who want taxes still higher, so long as they don't have to pay any themselves (or think they don't). But regardless of which view you happen to hold, there is something going on in the tax field that makes the picture different year by year. Not only the size of the canvas, but the composition of the painting is changing more rapidly than soVtfe people realize. For many years there was no essential change in the way in which taxes were raised. Property, taxes, that is. taxes on visible real estate, carried the hod. There were always a little dribbble from the tariff, and another little itribble from "internal revenue" taxes, both small. Just before the World war. came the income tax. It was small at first and changed the whole picture very little. With the World war came an uprush of sales tax ideas. And after that war and the 1929 crash, came the scramble . for all sorts of taxes of any kind and of any size the traffic would bear. The result is that by 1938. Die old standby, the property tax, was accounting ' for only 32 per cent of all taxes, where it had once been the backbone and mainstay of the tax System. That is 9 per cent less than in 1932. Meanwhile, a new tax. the payroll tax, in only its second year, yielded about 10 per cent of all tax income. In its first year, 1937, the -payroll tax produced about 5600,000,000, or roughly 5 per cent of all taxes. But in 1938 it yielded 51,500,000.000, just better than 10 per cent of all taxes paid, including federal, state, and local. Its share in purely federal taxation is, of course far S6r ' ' ' *«jfMM These estimates are made by the Federation of Tax Administrators and they show how rapidly the tax picture Is changing. Last year, then taxes were provided in this way: 32 per cent from property taxes, 26 per cent from sales and occupational-taxes, 22 per cent from income taxes, and 10 per cent from payroll taxes, the remainder scattering. Of the sales and occupational group including general sales, liquor, tobacco, gasoline, and various stamp taxes gasoline led with 3981,000,000, and liquor was next with $838,000 000 Lumping together the property and income taxes, you have 54 per cent levied against those presumably best able to pay. The only 44 per cent is now S 4 ™ f ?T * 6 , consumer as sueh - including the payroll taxes, which are a direct and immediate loss to purchasing power, although restored to that use when paid out in various benefits. Taxation is a science It is necessary not only to raise the money, but to raise ,t from sources which interfere as little as possible with the production' 10 ^ ^ * "** "* ™ pid ShUt in the tax Tacky Party at Bodcaw on Friday Night, Oct. 27 The Bodcaw PTA met last Wednes-' day afternoon in the school auditorium with Mrs. Claude McConnell, president, presiding.

But Keith I.s ordered on a icoul- Ingr trip. He urKm Dan to take Joan. "Why notf" Webber u«k*. CHAPTER XI JN§TEAD of phoning, Keith called for Joan at the library and took her home. "Take a deep breath and hold on tight," he said. "You're going on that hayride after all." "Do you mean you're not—" "You're going, but not with me," he interrupted. "Say—what's this M about?" "Dan Webber is going to pinch hit for me." An incredulous look spread over her face, but before she could say anything Keith plunged on. "Honest, you'll enjoy it. And you'll prgbably discover Dan is the swell egg I've been' telling you he is. Now's your chance to discover it." Then breaking into a grin: "I wouldn't trust you with anyone else." She didn't convince easily. "Do you mean to tell me old sour-puss 'himself consented to escort me anywhere but to the guillotine? Impossible! What'd you do— threaten him?" Keith laughed. "Why, the guy just jumped at the chance." "Jumped, did he? Why, I'll bet—" Suddenly she paused 1 , Etared into space meditatively. "Okay," she said, and there was a smile on her face. "Maybe I'll have more fun than I expected." * * * TT was a crisp, moon-drenched, late October night. Perfect for a hayride. They creaked up Pine Ridge road in two wagons, 10 couples in each. Someone in the first wagon had a portable victrola and a dozen swing records. Dan and Joan were in th>s second wagon, up front, just behind the driver. An arm's length away, Tommy Peters fished for some music on a portable radio he had borrowed. The wagons bumped along over thf- dii-t road, but it was com- foi table in the deep, warm hay. ".Mind if I iort of rest my head i on your shoulder?" Joan asked without looking up. "A pleasure and an honor," Dan assured her, and she tossed some hay in his face with a backward flip of her hand. "Don't be so sarcastically gallant." "Well, after all, 'I'm only a pinch-hitter, you know." "Sure—but as far as I know a pinch-hitter always does his best to make a hit." She happened to look at the stars as she spoke and caught the expression that moved fleetingly across his face. "Right?" she asked. "After a fashion, I guess." Joan smiled in the darkness. She wondered just how far she could draw him out. "Okay, skip it. But look—how about telling me a little about yourself. What makes you tick, and all that sort of stuff." "Really interested?" "Wouldn't ask if I weren't." He laughed and she settled back on his shoulder. It was broad and warm with a certain solidness about it that didn't come from his bulk alone. * * * JTE leaned back and told her of his home in a small downstate town. He told her of his kid sister still in high school, and of the time he fell out of the apple tree and broke his wrist. He told her he had a tough time deciding between Tech and an eastern school and finally picked Tech because of its ceramic engineering school. "How'd you happen to get interested in that stuff, anyway?" she asked. "First of all, don't refer to it as 'stuff.' If you don't mind, that is. "I worked in a small pottery plant in our town for a couple of summers and got to like it." He stuck a strand of hay between his teeth. "And I'm not just puttering around. I'm just about assured of a job with one of the largest pottery plants in the country when I graduate." She liked the quiet confidence in his tone. Somehow she knew how he felt. He was preparing for something and would be ready to meet it There would be no wavering, no indecision. He knew exactly what he wanted to do ancl was going to do it. "Where is this plant?" "Acme Pottery Products, near Pittsburgh." "Big, eh?" "Very big." "Maybe you'll be president of the company some day." "Maybe I will." The evenness of his tone startled her. She had spoken half in jest. He had answered with a calm that was almost prophetic. "You say you're sure of tin's job?" "Just about. My old foreman back home recommended me and the Acme personnel manager liked my application. Going to see him in person during the Christmas holidays." She caught the eager note in his tone. "It must be swell to know exactly where you're headed," she said softly, staring up at the stars again. * * * J-TE was silent for a long minute. "It is. You ought to think about it sometime. Do you good." She half turned and faced him. "Meaning—" "Meaning, take you, for instance. You have so much, and yet sometimes I think you have so little." He paused. "Go ahead," she said quickly. Her eyes in the moonlight almost whipped him, but he managed to continue. "You just slide through things, taking the path of least resistance. But you can't do that and feel as though you're genuinely satisfied with yourself. Or can you?" That stung just a little but she didn't resent it. "Dan—you're- right about me, but not entirely. I—I'm not really like that. Somehow I've just had a faculty for doing or saying the wrong thing since I've been here. "And—and Dan"—she placed a hand on his arm—"I—I don't want you to think that. I've given you a chance to show me what you were like. Now you give rne a chance." They grew silent then and for the rest of the ride they merely listened to the music. Her thoughts raced, but foremost among them was the fact that she didn't want Dan Webber to think she was the unpurposeful creature he thought her to bo. There was a time when he might have been right. But those were the days before Tech. He'd liud out in time.
