Secondly, such a level of production would provide ab<_.ut. 5ii,- ooo.nun jobs, which would not only mean millions of now taxpayers but fewer unemployed to whom relief has to be paid out of taxation. Tho Co-,nmittee for Economic Development believes that both of these poals—a national income of $140.- Odd.liOO.DOO a year and 55.000,000 jobs—are possible, if wo inake bold, intelligent (wise) plans for them now. And one of tho most important parts of that planninp is in overhaul our national tax propram so that it will encourage individual employers to risk the expansion which will provide the needed jo'js. Such a tax plan lias been developed and proposed by the C. L:. D. research committee. The next four articles in this series will describe its various recommendations on labor, farmers, stockholders, and people who want to po in business for themselves after the war. evenly over the entire population the "average" family of four people would have to pay just about $500 in federal taxes and around $;!:;() more in other taxes, or jjome $S:JO a year altogether.

This will create between 7.000,00() ami 10,000,000 new jobs. Secondly, we must revise our tax system so that we can collect the needed tuxes in such a way that il puts the least possible burden on the continued existence of all jobs and on tho creation of still more new jobs. Both of these objectives are big orders. But, if we succeed, the rewards will be both lower tax rates and more income for Mr. Average Citizen.

GP)— Blood stains were found on the pistol that killed Jay Lovett, 18-year-old farm boy, defense attorneys said today in announcing a suicide theory would constitute the defense of Mrs. Frances Andrews, Carmel society woman charged with murder in the youth's death. Mrs. Andrews' trial opens tomorrow and several ballistics, medical and fingerprint experts are to be called by the defense and prosecution. Leo Friedman, attorney for Mrs. Andrews, who was indicted after Lovett's body \vas found on a road near her home July 15, said he will attempt to prove Lovett shot himself. Superior Judge H. G. Jorgensen has summoned approximately 275 prospective jurors. Sixtieth anniversary of the first formal labor statistics reports for the state of California is being observed this month, it was reported today by John J. McCarthy, deputy state labor commissioner who said that the local office has been established for 20 years. This month marks the twentieth anniversary also of the creation of the California Labor Statistics Bulletin, a monthly report of employment, pay rolls, hours and earnings. As a result of a movement started in 1878 with strong support from organized labor, the California Bureau of Labor Statistics was created in 1S83, charged with responsibility for collecting and presenting statistics concerning labor "such as the hours and wages of labor, cost of living, amount of labor- required, estimated number cf persons depending on daily labor for their support. Other statistics involved were In relation to operation of labor-saving machinery in its relation to hand labor, and such other matters in relation to labor as the labor commissioner deems pertinent. First Report Tn September, 1S84. in compliance with the mandate of legislation enacted the previous year, the labor commissioner issued the "first biennial report of the bureau of labor statistics." In 1024. the California Bureau of Labor Statistics, later known as the division of labor statistics and law enforcement, initiated the monthly collection of employment and payroll data from business firms in California. This data is used to compile the California, Labor Statistic Bulletin, which presents detailed statistics concerning employment, payrolls, average working time and average weekly and hourly earni-ngs of wage earners in a Uirye number of Industries. Trace Kinptoyiiieiit Tlie statistics made available have enabled labor, business and government, to trace the course of employment during the boom year of 192!i, the depression years of the lJ)30s and the critical war years of the 1940s. Tn the postwar period, interest in employment trends will be greater than at any other time in history, Mr. McCarthy said. In addition to the statistics already recorded, the division is now expanding its work to cover data concerning women in industry, cost of living, strikes and lock-outs, placements by private* employment agencies, industrial injuries and related subjects.
