Military Leaders Seize Haiti Rule Three-Man Junta Regains Power after 4 Years on Sidelines PORT AV PBIKCE. Hrcitl. May 11. Iff 1 )— Military rulers seized the government of Haiti jcstcrriay after almost four years on the .sidelines. They eanie back to power iifter President Dumarsats Estime tried unsuccessfully to insure his o\vn reelection. Eslime resipneri and wn.s succeeded by (he same three-man military junta who threw out his predecessor in Janunry 1946. Tlie junta, which had ruled the country until Estime's election in August. 1946, announced the president and Ills family had been placed unricr its "protection." (In Miami, an informed source said Estlme may go to Paris to live. His predecessor, Elie Lescol., found refuge in Canada.) Immediately alter taking office yesterday, the junta dissolved parliament, promising at the same time In a proclamation lo respect Haiti's existing international agreements and to "maintain democratic practices." Ixickcrl Confidence The military leaders said the lower parliamentary house, the Chamber of Deputies elected last January during a Kovernniertt-de- crced state of siege, did not have the country's confidence. The chamber, which Estime's opponents charged was hand-pickerl by the government, previously had approved a constitutional amendment permitting the president's reelection when his current term expired in 1952. The dissolution order also applied to (he Senate, whose rejection on April 13 of the reelection amendment was followed by a mob attack In which the Senate clmmcbr was wrecked and an assault was made on the homes of two senators opposed to the amendment.. Anti-government, quarters charged the mob was led by Minister of Interior Castle Demesmin. who they said was pro-Communist. Since taking office in 1916. Estime's government had sponsored a program ,of widespread social and financial legislation and public works for this West Indian island whose .1,000.000 people are almost all illiterate Negroes or mulatlocs.

The characters: Uncle Sam himself, his Gremlin, state and Local Tax Gremlins, and you—the taxpayer.'. It's liom an "American Affairs" pamphlet published by the National Industrial Conference Board of Nciv York, an independent, non-profit rncl-finding institution .supported by rjUainc.yi, labor and other groups. The ancient maxim about, taxation reads: "The most, feathers for the least squawk." That Is the theme of Ihe cartoon with this story. Facing a deficit of J5,0fl0,000.000 for Ihe cm-rent fiscal year the President had to think of how to Increase the lake of the federal If would mean only more hidden THURSDAY, MAY 11, 1950 ' ' , f Tax Revision Gremlin. But both the sales tax taxes. Goose and the Income tax ROOSC*- were already squawking murder. and to pluck them any deeper would be politically dangerous, with an election coming oh. The sales (ax coose was the more noisy of Ihe two. And with good reason, since (he sales taxes imposed in wartime had never been reduced at all. In this dilemma, as a politician, what would you do? Tile corporation tax goose is big and friendless, with no voles at, all, and has a squawk absurdly weak for Its size. Therefore. Uncle Sam is saying to his Gremlin: "Get more feathers there." And that. Is Ihe thought that governs tax revision. However, besides quielius the geese, what difference would it maxc in the end? A deduction In sales laxes and at the same time an increase of corporation taxes would grow no feathers if what the consumer had formerly paid as sales and excise taxes were added to the prices charged by the corporations.

'T'His TIME we'd like to tell you about -*- something that you cannot see in this picture—something, in fact, you cannot know about from looking at someone else in a passing Buick—or from viewing a Buick on our show-room floor. It's the feel you gel from a Rtiick in motion. You are going to find out that it is something like traveling on your own private, jct-propcllcd cloud —only firmer. JVlaybe you know a stretch of washboard road, where you have to slow down, or bounce and jitter. Try thai in a Buick and sec how you keep a level, comfortable boulevard smoothness. Maybe you're always on edge lo dodge dips and chuckholcs. Those also lose most of their jolt when you're at the wheel of a Buick —or in the rear seal. In a few simple words —the ride of any Buick—SPECIAL, SUPER or ROADMASTER — is oul of Ihis world. V\e could give you a lot of reasons. Soft coil springs on all four wheels, for example -Ihc firm linkage of Ihe lorquc-tube drive— Ihc disiribuiion of weight-big soft lires on wide rims-the way Buick engines are mounted. Even Dynaflow Drive*—always silk- smooth and free of gcarcd-cirive harshness —plays its part in the marvelous Buick ride. But why simply listen to reasons? Experience is slill the best teacher. Come sec for yourself why the Buick ride is called "matchless"—and how liulc it costs to replace a jillcrbuggy with one of these level-striding honeys. t"a COM n* SL r/."/v orji SFECtA L mi^rIt.
