It was more than two hours after sunset when the phine settled down to a perfect landing at Crissy field, and the last vestiges of daylight were fading from the western sky as his motor roared out of the east. Behind Schedule He Set. Lieutenant Maughan did not quite equal the schedule he had set for himself. He had hoped to arrive before sunset, 7:37, but terrific headwinds in the East and Middle West had held him back. Fog and headwinds also handicapped him on the last few hundred miles of his long trip. The young army officer a youth from Utah has proved two things. S ' fv J V I . tr OCECREAM TENDER AND TRUE.

Bet ore making refunds to those who i ah; the full amount of their income tax on March 13 and are entitled to a 23 per cent reduction. Secretary Mellon has asked for a formal ruling from Controller General MoCarl as to the legality of the plan decided upon. Mr. ilcCarl, judging from rulings already given in the case of other funds tied up through failure of the second deficiency appropriation bill, is expected to approve the treasury's plan and refunds then will be mailed cut as soon as the necessary records can be prepared. How Refunds Will Be Made. Under the treasury plan the refunds will be paid out of general appropriations for tax refunds. The annual Treasury department appropriation bill carried an appropriation of $12,-000.000 for tax refunds. The first deficiency appropriation bill carried an additional appropriation of $103,000,-000 for tax refunds. Both of these amounts were made available Immediately. Of the $177,000,000 all but about $30,000,000 has already been raid out In settlement of disputed tax cases where tax payments were overcharged. Under the plan of the treasury the March 15 refunds will be made out of the $30,000,000 balance from the general tax refund appropriation. A gootrrJedi of "clerical work will be required in making the March 15 refund. The treasury has figured out that 1.050,000 persons paid their Income taxes In full on March 15. Inasmuch as the total tax refund Is $16,-140.000, it Is Indicated that most of the checks for refunds will be made cut for comparatively small amounts. The receipts of the treasury on Income taxes paid June 15 have amounted to about $375,000,000, which Is what had been estimated. Plymouth, Ind.
