Bond Issue problem in our own hands, bor- row the money and provide for repaying over a 15 year period --a million a year. "If the cigaret tax (three cents a pack) were earmarked for payment of such a bond is- sue, it could meet the problem. That tax now brings in nearly half a million a year (earmark ed for schools). Certainly an- other half million could be made available annually from the treasury for such a worth- while project." Erigebreth said he does not favor.', boosting the cigaret tax to a'pents a pack as some legis latpfS have proposed. 1 . "The-margin on tabacco is so small that we couldn't expect sisting that young married men the merchant to absorb all of ought to be drafted ahead of an added 2 cent tax," he said. 118-year olds. Some lawmakers have express ed the opinion retailers would absorb such a tax. They argue that the retailers generally up- ped the price a nickel a pack when the 3 cent tax was put on Engebreth said the most ac- ute need for school buildings is outside incorporated districts and his own third division "has grown so rapidly that there is more need than in any other part of the territory." II New Regulations In The Works" For Draft Washington, (XP) Selective service director Lewis B. Her- shey said today new regula- tions are "in the works" for a draft of married men ages 19 to 26 who have no children. Hershey said an order has been drafted for the approval of President Truman and def- ense manpower agencies which would cancel present defer- ments for men with one depend ent. Hershey told the house armed services committee of the pro- posed order during hearings on a bill for universal military service and training. The bill would make 18-year olds subject to the draft. Some congress members have been in Extending the draft to mar- ried men in the 19-26 age brac- ket can be done without legis- lation. All that is required is an executive order from the president. Hershey told the committee the proposed order would limit dependency deferments to: 1. Men with one or more chil- dren. 2. Men with a wife and chil- dren, and 3. Men with more than one dependent. This could be, for instance, an aged parent and an invalid sister. Hershey said he was virtual- ly certain the interested man- power agencies would approve the order. Rail Strike road restored its 183 train com- muter service to New Jersey. Of a normal force of 407 train- men, the Pennsy reported that only 32 were at work this morn ing. It said it was operating trains with the aid of specially trained volunteer workers. A few other cracks appeared in the strike of about 12,000 switchmen, but the improve- ment in the situation was slight Nearly all the approvimately 50 lines affected by the "sick" call walkout had little or no re- lief from the virtual tie-up of important terminal operations in about 100 of the nation's ma- jor cities.
