An tight per cent drop was reported today in federal tax receipts during 1949 from the four retail sales taxes that President Truman has proposed for reductions. Ttotal U. S. tax revenues were off about four per cent.

Large family or hospital size, $3.50. furs, jewelry, luggage and toilet preparations $37,872,901 less than the 1948 collections. Tax receipts, which directly re flect the up or down movement in sales volumes, declined on all the retail levies except that on toilet preparations. Where cosmetic sales have held up strongly. Truman recommended cutting all four levies to 10 per cent. Overall tax collection in 1949, including $2,459,706,469 in social se curity payroll taxes that are not counted in government budget fig ures, totaled $40,501,870,605, off $1,800,993,500 from 1948. The big movements were a $2,529,149,999 or 12 per cent drop in individual income taxes and a partly offsetting increase of $859,-691,437 or eight per cent in corporation income tax payments. One reason that individual income tax payments were so much higher in 1948 than in 1949 was that the income tax cut that year was not felt in withholding tax collections til the year was one-third gone. Individual Income tax receipts last year totaled $17,752,414,084 or nearly 44 per cent of total revenue bureau collections. Corporate taxes yielded $12,006,490,560, or nearly 30 per cent of the total. Liquor and tobacco tax yields varied little from 1948 to 1949. The liquor levies brought in $2,204,389,-821, a $27,785,812 increase; tobacco brought $1,319,976,401, an $8,436,-852 increase-Manufacturers sales taxes yielded $1,795,636,746, a $50,375,456 increase over 1948, due in large part to strong sales of automobiles, which are taxed seven per cent of the manufacturers' price. On the three miscellaneous-class taxes which the president also has recommended for reduction, the government fared as follows: Long distance telephone calls and telegrams: Receipts $305,265,-851; a $4,204,497 increase; the levy is now 25 per cent, the proposed substitute is 15 per cent. Rail, bus, air and ship passenger tickets: Receipts $237,707,735, a $13,-047,634 decrease; the levy is now 15 per cent, the proposed levy 10 per cent. Transportation of property: Receipts $321,700,000, a decline of $17,-726,524. Russia tried to sell Alaska to the United States in 1855 during the Crimean ' War to prevent its seizure by the British.

Another occasion, his friendly "yes" started a man in business and today that man's business it a growing, paying proposition. And then there was the time his "yes" enabled a worried family to get from under a stack of unpaid bills and his friendly advice put that family's budget on a sound, secure basis. This man whose "yes" has brought peace of mind to thousand of people by helping them get a fresh start is the manager of the Fkntmat Finance Co. office in this city. His job is to make personal loans, and to keep the transactions on a business-like basis. His years of experience with Jbuonot have taught him to respect the honesty of local people friends, relatives, or employer are not brought into the picture. Don't borrow unnecessarily. But if loan for a month or a year, or longer is the sensible thing for you (and you're the judge) the YES MAN will appreciate the chance to say "yes."

George Nl Craig, national commander of the American Legion, led a Legion delegation to Springfield, where Lincoln is buried. The Legion makes an annual pilgrimage to Lincoln's tomb in Oak Ridge cemetery there. Craig said that Lincoln's example remains strong in "a world haunted by Communism, in our nation threatened by intolerable ideolog ies. He added that "many of us who champion the cause of freedom today are subject to attacks and threats, as was Lincoln in his day." Speaking on the same program. Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois said the honorable peace for which Lin coln strove continues to elude the American people. Republicans utilized the occasion to pay their customary tributes to the former president, generally called the father of the present GOP. Senator Irving M. Ivea (R.-N. Y.) told a Lincoln day audience at Syra cuse, N. Y last night that Democratic institutions will be fully utilized only by government "co operation with and not its operation of our free institutions. Solon's Report Finds Humor In Congress9 Filibusters By ARTHUR EDSOX Washington, Feb. 12 (F) Criti cizing congress appears to be a quaint old American custom. Mark Twain used to do it, so did Will Rogers. But many another, including congressmen, haven't found congress so humorous. I thought about this today while reading a report by Representative Cotton (R.-N. H.) to his constituents of a recent week's events. He told them that "frustration" was "the word of the week in congress." "The filibuster goes on, Cotton said. 'The civil rights issue hangs like a mist in the chamber, a wet blanket on every effort to get going on the business of the session." Cotton ticked off, "without color ing or exaggeration," how delaying tactics were carried on. How quorum calls are demanded. How Representative Rankin (D.-Miss.) complains the clocks in the house cham-' ber aren't co-ordinated. How Speaker Rayburn replies that he isn't a clock-fixer. Finally . "A weary and hungry house throws up its hands and ajourns." The next day? "It is groundhog day," said Cot ton, "and Gavin of Pennsylvania claims that the famous legend started at' Punxsutawney in his district. "Dague of the same state denies this and claims that Quarryvllle in his district is the home of the groundhogs, scoffing at what he called the 'puny and pusillanimous pig of Punxsutawney.' Hays of Arkansas delivers a stirring oration about the hound dogs of his state." And so on. In the midst of this, Cotton noted, President Truman announced that he had decided this nation should build the ln-drogen bomb. And Cot ton added: "What a tragedy to see the greatest legislative body on earth wasting away its time on trifles while the world moves badly toward its fate and science stores up destruction." Cotton had one reassuring thought. "Only a reichstag," he declared, "dominated by a dictator. can be restrained from its moments of weakness and frivolitv." But the retirement of Dr. James Shera Montgomery, long-time house chaplain, gave Cotton a chance to wind up on a pessimistic note. He wondered if Dr. Montgemory recalled the facetious words of another chaplain who once declared: "I alwa's looked at the congress and then prayed for the country." LEVELED BY YESTERDAY'S tornado was this area northeast of Logansport. Only-scattered lumber marked the former location of the houses in this area.

(Times photo by Langston McEachern) Miners Vote Not to Work Under Order Pittsburgh, Feb. 12 0J.R). The United Mine Workers declared today they would not dig coal under government order. Local union leaders said their men were determined to continue the 400.000-man walkout which forced President Truman- to declare a national emergency and obtain a Taft-Hartley injunction against the strike. UMW President John L. Lewis issued a back-to-work order yester day in compliance with the court order. But his field lieutenants ad mitted there was little chance that many of the miners will obey. "This is still America and when they throw an injunction at you, then it's a personal matter," Steve Panack, head of the Vesta No. 4 Local of Jones & Laughlin Steel company said. v "Lewis, the government, or any-! one else can't get us back to work without a contract the hell with them all!" While the miners were set to ignore Lewis' order, they still admired him. The mine union chief was 70 today. The coal diggers' walkout tomorrow officially will be a "birthday" celebration for Lewis. However, it is not a contract holiday except in the hard coal fields. Coal operators said the mines will be open for work tomorrow. However, even optimistic industry sources said it probably will be three days I it Open a Convenient II JCBUU1 rrvr ROEBUCK AND CO. ou C.a" " I JF Easy Payment Plan on Any, Purchases mi iii ti' t Totaling $20 or Mora.
