Mrs. Merl Young, a White House secretary, saw nothing wrong in accepting a mink coat from a man who knew she had influence with the RFC. And for a aouble standard with a cruel twist, consider: In 1948, an internal revenue commissioner ruled that 5400,000 given to the Democratic Party by mil; lionaries Marshall Field and R. J.

This week, that very same commissioner ruled that the widows and. children of Shell Oil employes killed last fall must pay income tax on death benefits given them by the company.
