WEDNTCSDAY, MAY 24, 19BO BLYTHBVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE Business Brains Bring Bliss By Building Bundling Beds; Better Beverages, Baths By SAM DAWSON' NEW YORK, May 24. (3>>_Slop yawning from spring fever and consider the art of relaxation. Business brains have burned the midnight oil to think up ways ol lulling you to sleep. Some people can get to sleep simply by thinking t ut the amount of work there ts be done. But others make work of relaxing. They blame tlielr sleeplessness on the neighbors, their wives or their offspring. And the next day the hired hands at the office or the mill have a. rough time.' . Wonders of Science Consider a few of the wonders of science and the ingenuity of industry, as viewed through the ads. aimed at relaxing you with gadgets. There's the "modern escape bed", which the Lewis <fe Conger Sleep Shop of New York peddles at around $600. It Is "equipped, with automatic control panel for remote control of phonograph, television; for regulating temperature, humidity, and breezes; for Instant access to favorite literature, beverages and snacks; for easing the insomnlatlc tension and promoting deep restful sleep." If you don't want to go whole hog on this business all at once, you can approach the gartgetry piecemeal Here are a few simpler ones: Or a Slumber Bath? The "lullapine," an electrical gadget that "hums a constant brows Ing tone and dispels relaxing plm fragrance." Or the "slumber bath,' a coscoctlon to be added to you tub. Or the "pulsating relaxer", an electric oscillating unit to be slipped under the mattress. No matter what you think, the ad says it "sends gen- tJ^witsations that ease the tension." '^pere are the "pendlculation plaque," depicting a gaping gent, "an irresistable ynwn-inducer"; and the metronomic luller "with rhythmic flashing glow-light and repe- titive, rhythmic lulling tone." A Prop Pillow If you aren't worn out by now, try reading yourself to sleep, using a non-sktd prop-pillow, a floor reading stand that holds a book "securely in every conceviable position," and a rotiol cigarette holder which thwarts your tendency to ;t the bed afire. The "lullaby radio-bed lamp" combines radio reception with restful light—and some radio comedian's program will likely do the trick. If your pate Is thinly thatched, there's a "carnan head-warmer" vhich comes wilh adjustable band n blue. Mattresses can be had that are soft on one half the bed and hard on the other, to fit different tastes of married couples; or beds equipped with "General Electric blanket; with dual controls which perml he wife to Increase warmth on her side while hubby decreases warmth on his side." There's a modern bundling bed to keep partners from bumping; super-sized beds: and duplex beds that can swing apart readily. Other aids to avoiding marital discord: The "spotray" which focuses light on a book and leaves the i-esl of the room dark: the silent radio, which fits an ear piece under one pillow and lets the other fellow sleep; B "silent alarm clock" that Rashes a light, instead of a noise; and "anti-snore balls" to be sewed Into the back of a pajama coat to discourage sleeping on the .back. Tax Law Wrtiers Are Gloomy Over Bill; Truman May Veto WASHINGTON, May 3*. CAP) — Congressional tax law wltci's looked wearily today at estimates Hint they misl still assess $100,000.000 extra on sonic tnxpuycrs, or risk n Presidential veto of their tnx bill. As It stands, It would cut excise tnxcs by about $1,080,000,00, A speed-up lu corporation tax laymeiits, and possibly an increase n the corporate tax rate, appeared to be about the only big sources left In the hunt for bigger revenue collections. The revenue hunters may take a look til co-op taxes, too. The House Ways and Means Com- mittee, now writing the lax measure, got a jolt as the Treasury Department estimated that the revisions of the capllal gains tnx, aa tentatively approved by the committee, would reduce revenues by about $175,000.000 a year. Sponsors of the lower capital gains taxes, reducing the rate from 25 per cent to 10 per cent, hnd con- extra revenue. President Truman has promised to veto any tax bill that cuts excise levies—on such things as furs, lewelry, hand bags, movies and travel tickets—and falls to make up the lost revenue by higher collection! elsewhere. The Treasury Informed the Wayi and Means Committee that on tha basis of its actions thus far It Is 5760,000.000 short of finding enough new revenue to cover the losses from excise and other tax cuts It has approved. Mr. Truman suggested three sources for new revenue, to make tended this would stimulate Investment transactions and uctuull: produce about $100,000,000 up for excise cuts—bigger levies on corporations, on inheritances and big gifts, and plugging of tax law year loopholes. i: One ad says: "V/ is "easing and restful" ano offers the heartbreak pillow, moisture-resistant, 'to receive your tears, and exhorts: "Do not shamcdly stifle them."
