FRIDAY, MAY 22, 1942 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS By PETER EDSON Courier News Washington Correspondent What all this rationing, this conservation, this price-fixing, this increased taxation, this enforced saving and this effort to control inflation amount to is simply that the federal government is taking over the management of your standard of living for the duration. In pence times this would be known as socialism or communism. PAtiE "THREE 1 Looks as TougK as His Tanks Phone 42 Bo x Office Opens 7:30 p.m Show Starts 7:45 p. m.

SATURDAY Midnite Show 11 p.m. They Live—and Love—Recklessly! 'Steel Against the Sky' ln Europe it would be known as life under a dictatorship. The short and ugly name for it under a democracy is war. If jyxi are accustomed to worrying about your standard of living the way you worry about your hips or waistline, your falling hair, teeth and arches or your hardening arteries, you should decide whether you like it or not. If you discover that you can take a government standard of living all right, when comes the revolution after the war is over, you'll be that much more content. What does this government- imposted standard of living do to you? The responsibilities of your government in. managing your standard of living, rationing your goods and writing your tax bills, are primarily three: 1. The supply of civilian goods available for distribution among the people must be equitably apportioned. There must be no more of this X cards for congressmen stuff. '2. Price ceilings must be rigidly enforced. If bootlegging and black marketing of scarce supplies are permitted to start, not only inflation will develop, but chaos as well. 3. Every income group must be equitably taxed and assessed for savings. There can be no class exemptions. States which now permit husbands and wives to file separate income tax returns in order to escape the higher surtax rates of a joint return are simply allowing their citizens to welch on a national responsibility. COST 40 PER CENT What this full responsibility amounts to. according to some of the government economists who are planning for the management of your wartime standard of living, is that the average family in the next 12 months must be prepared to set aside some 40 per cent of its income for taxes and savings. That is an unprecedented amount. Before the war, any suggestion that the American people could set aside 40 cents out of every dollar would have with Alexis Smith, Lloyd Nolan, Craig 1 Stevens.

They don't want any .sympathy, figuring they don't need any. There was i\ period when young folks s:tt around and felt .sorry for themselves and blamed the old folks because they dldn'1, have what they used to refer to us ".security." I Jut. the war put an end to that period. Today, young folks aren't espirU plaining.

The way this works out for the average person now is something like this: With total national income for the coming year estimated at $117 billion, to be divided among about 130 million people, that makes the gross per capita income around $900 a year. Put 40 per cent of that—$360—in savings and taxes, and it leaves $540 a year for the per capita spending money which will be left for the necessities on this government-managed standard of living.

To fit them to. a family, multiply those per capita figures by the number of people in your family. For an average family of three—mama, papa and the baby—it would work out as an income of $2700 a year, with $1080 of it going into savings and taxes and $1(J20 of it left for the family to squander. SAME QUANTITY What kind of a standard of living do you get for this money? Tn general, the idea is to give you about the same quantity of food, fuel and shelter that you enjoyed in the past, with certain obvious exceptions and certain Ideal shortages in various areas. Sugar and probably most of the imported foodstuffs like coffee and tea and bananas will be down in consumption generally. And in defense areas and war production centers where there have been big and sudden increases in population, shelter accommodations will be reduced. Where you will be .hit hardest will be- in the shortages 'in services * jj like deliveries, the shortages of^LOHg FftCcS consumer goods such as house fur- enishings and- clothing.
