SUPERINTENDENT ... M. H. Robertson Himtsvirle Gets New Head Of Public Schools By JOHN CUNNIFF , NEW YORK (AP) - April Is ot the month that Englishmen, pecially the wealthy ones, rite nostalgic poetry about Iwse days. A lament might be lore appropriate, for the som- er Britain of today is not the merry one of yesterday. It is, instead, a severe one. he theme of the economy is produce more, use less." And ie chief means of achieving lis aim is to tax. tax, tax. Already harsh, taxes this pril have been raised even more, the purpose being to take nother $816 million of purchas- ng power out of the economy nd bring the nation's hopes more in line with its abilities. It's a cold April, and were lobert Browning writing today nstead of more than a century go, you might speculate that HUNTSVILLE - Meyers H Robertson has been n a m e i superintendent of Huntsvilli Schools to succeed Merle Webl who has resigned. Robertson, a native of Coa Hill attended the College of th Ozarks at Clarksville where h received his. bachelor of arts de gree and did graduate work a the University of Arkansa where he earned a master's de gree in education.

This, of course, means that ritish goods have been over- riced. In an effort to make iem more competitive, the ritish devalued their currency 1949 and 1967, thus lowering ie price of exports, raising the rice of imports. BACKGROUND These devaluations have had he aim of bringing money into British economy, making in- ustry more competitive, while t the same time making it more difficult for Britishers to But has it e would not be inspired to rite so wistfully, "Oh to be in England, Now that April's here." TAXES RISING Were he there, he would learn hat betting taxes are going up hat there's a brand-new tax on jingo game winnings, that the ax on a bottle of wine is being aised by 13 cents, and that gas jline taxes will total 54 cents a gallon. True, these levies on consum er items are leavened by in creases in old-age pensions and by the elimination of more than one million poor people from the ncome tax rolls, but they are stiff nevertheless. To businessmen, the increase are simply shocking: The corpo rate profit tax goes up to 45 pe cent from 42.5 per cent, and the payroll tax for employers rise o well over $5 a head from $4.50. But business does better tha he consumer in one area, anc that is borrowing. Business sti can deduct the interest cost o oans, but consumers no longe can do so, except for houses This, indeed, is a jolt, as ca be attested by any America who recently finished itemizin lis federal income tax deduc .ions. Car buyers, for example often have deductions of severa hundred dollars on loans. But n more. SLOW PROGRESS The background for such aus terity goes back a long way even to the days precedin World War II. and is tied to th breakup of the British Empire The present Britain did not en ter the postwar world very we equipped. Not only did it lose some of it finest manpower in two wars but its plants were damaged and old-fashioned, and its abil ty to utilize new technology wa snagged in a cobweb of ancien labor and management wor methods. A reliable estimate shows th within the past few years Bri ain needed more than 200 men to turn over. pend money, Forked? The latest figures show that 16 months after devaluation of the British pound sterling, the Brit- sh slowly are improving their ituation. Alttwugh still in debt, low progress is noted. More impressive is the rise in roductivity of British workers, or this is the key to the ability f British goods to compete in oreign markets. Last year this roductivity rose 6.3 per cent ompared with 2.6 in other 'ears. Nevertheless, the pace of improvements seems too slow to 5ritish leaders, and so they add on taxes--not only to take pending power out of the economy but to add revenues for ratting it on a more stable foun- lation. It's a stern discipline, and its more likely to evoke the recita- ion not of Browning but of a more recent English poet. T. S. Sliot. He wrote, "April is the cruellest month ..."

No Injuries Reported In Train Wreck POYEN, Ark. (AP) -- A spokesman for the Rock Island _ines says it may take as long as a week to clear an area of track between Poyen and Leola where more than 50 cars derailed Sunday. No one was injured in the mishap. The spokesman said the 135- car train was en route from El Dorado to Little Rock. He said traffic would have to be rerouted around the area. Officials said the accident occurred when one car derailed and 20 more turned over. Reportedly, the next 37 cars stayed on the track but the 38th car derailed causing another 32 Two Killed In Canadian Train Wreck Sunday TORONTO (AP) -- A teen-age girt and a fireman were killed Sunday night when a Canadian National Railways' passenger train hit an open switch at 60 miles an hour and smashed into a line of tank cars parked on a siding. A railway spokesman said someone sawed off a protective padlock, opened the switch, and did it in such a way that the open-closed indicator showed the switch to be closed. The fireman, Charles Baker of Sarnia, was trapped under two feet of mud when one of the two diesel engines landed on its side. The girl, Gladys Brennan, 18, of Barkers Pint, N.B., was crushed in the vestibule be- .ween two cars. About 30 of the 250 passengers were injured, none seriously. The train had just left Toronto national Airport. Â·Â·Â·Â·^^Â·^^HH WE SELL OR RENT Cntcket-Commod* Chain Wheel Chairs-Walker.. Etc. Bankers' hours were onn tin envy of everybody* Not any more.
