ftlt'Jhone PlalnfieU 6-8000 PLAINFIELD, N. J., COURIER-NEWS, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1935 PAGE TWENTY-ONE V T a Trenton Facts By SENATOR CHARLES E. LOlZEAUi of the important problems to be facred by the 1&35 New Jersey Legislature is now being carefully Jfudied by the State Security Commission, which was created this year to bring into uniformity federal and state legislation relating to old age pensions, the care of de-indent children and. other social problems. Under terms of the Federal Social Security Act. New Jersey will be taxed heavily in 1S36 and unless adequate state social security legislation is enacted these neve levies will be turned over to the national treasury without benefiting this state in any way. For example unless New Jersey enacts unemployment insurance legislation m 1936,' the state will lose to the federal government all of the proceeds of the 1 per cent tax on industrial payrolls provided for by the federal set. ' - ' As recently explained by Thomas Elliott, general counsel to the Federal Economic Security Commission, the federal" act -provides , a tax of 1 per cent on the payrolls of employers next year. If any employer operating in New Jersey pays the state his unemployment insurance fundhe would be allowed credit-by the federal authorities for taxes paid. Ninety per cent of the total unemployment insurance taxes paid would be placed in a trust fund "n Washington, where it could - be drawn upon any time New Jersey made application for insurance payments. The remaining 10 per cent of tae tax income would be for administrative uses. .Unless" New Jersey enacts an unemployment.- insurance law, however, the federal government, under its present legislation would not be compelled to pay back to the state any funds collected from New Jersey employers. New Jersey taxpayers will pay other levies to Washington, such as a tax for eld age pensions. These taxes will be paid regardless of state legislation, but where suitable state laws exist the funds will be returned for state use. If adequate legislation is not enacted, the revenue collected, as in the case of th-s unemployment insurance levy, will be turned over to the federal treasury. In order to determine what new state legislation will be required and what amendments to our existing social security legislation" will be needed in order to bring federal and state measures !nto uniformity, the New Jersey . Social Security Commission is consedering the situation from all angles and collecting all available statistics. State welfare egencies are co-operating by preparing estimates of the cost of complying with the federal act. 4- . Due to the widespread interest in the Federal Social Security Act and its relation to this etate, it is planned to hold a public, hearing at Trenton before any final conclusion i3 reached on proposed new legislation or amendments to present laws. At this writing, the tentative date of Oct. 7, at 10 a m. had been set for this hearing. It is also expected the proposed changes and additions to our state social security legislation will be submitted to the Federal Economic Security Commission n Washington for approval before it is finally recommended for enactment by the 1936 Legislature. i .Watchim; Avenue Aspect Is Aided By Alterations Among the recent projects affect- d have done more to enhance the ap pearance of f lamneKi s Dusmess district than the alternations made n the west side of Watchung Ave-nue : between Front and Second Streets. - " ' - ' "- Acting as trustee for the Estate of J.

' Hackensack Property ; Valuation Com MX WORLD of TAMPS By QCTXTON JAMES . Importance of national products, such, as tobacco, coffee and the like, often are taken into consideration when a Latin-American country issues a stamp or a-set of stamps. : 'A further example of this policy is provided in a new triangular airmail stamp just coming from Paraguay. While an airplane1 is included " the design, that part of the draw- aaUaeMMri tin Trenton (JP) The State Board of Tax Appeals ruled yesterday, tbe Haekensack Water Company's 196 acres of land and dam in Woodcliff Lake are worth $148,195 and should be taxed accordingly. The municipality had assessed the property at J304.1CO, and the company contended it was worth only $47,862.

' - Below the plant is the inscription, "The tobacco of Paraguay is of ex celleht quality." The stamp appears to be a new value, also, having a face of 17 pesos. The color is light brown. ' Among the other countries which have called attention to their products via postage stamps are Salvador, Ecuador, Costa Hica, and Colombia, as well as Haiti. Coffee has been a prime subject for consideration, although Salvador also has pointed out that "only Salvador produces the balsam of Peru." , In at least one instance Colombia presented a special issue devoted to its products, described in the catalog as the "wealth of Colombia issue." Besides a coffee plantation it pictured an emerald mine, a platinum mine, gold mining and oil wells. . - ' - ; - Xew Monaco Value , Monaco, the small principality on the southern coast of France famed for its Monte Carlo, has found the need for a 3.50 franc value in its tMMIHIIIIII current list of. pictorial stamps first issued in 1933. So it has inserted an adhesive of that denomination, printed in orange. The design is identical to that on the 25-centime olive black which pictures the royal palace as seen from a distance. The insert increases the number of current values to 20, ranging from 15 centimes to 20 francs and including the portrait of Prince Louis II on the 40-c. Boulder Dam Stamp Decision by the U. S. postoff ice department to issue a special 3-cent stamp in connection with the completion of Boulder dam, shows that it will be the same size as the recent commemoratives the dimensions of the special delivery stamp. The color also will be of the prevalent purple shading. It will picture an air view of the dam, with first-day sale set for Boulder City, Nev., on September 30 and at other postoffices October 1. This is a change from the original plan. Hate Triangles While the triangular stamp has been rather popular abroad from time to time as a means of offering a different method of presentation, this plan never has been adopted for use in the United States. Probably the most famous of the triangles are the early Cape of Good Hopes, among the first ever printed. These were prepared in 1853, 1855, 1861 and 1863. Most of them have a more or less high value rating, with two in particular in the rare classification. These are the 1-penny blue error and the 4-penny red error of 1861. The former is listed at $1,250 used and the latter at $5,000 unused or $1,250 used. The stamps of the 1861 issue are known as "wood blocks," the plates being locally made. They were stereotypes mounted on wood. The errors were caused by a stereotype of each value being mounted on the plate of the other, value. . - The Only One In Plainfield I MIRON'S MAPLE HOUSE Is Open For Fall!
