"We have had a dramatic increase in requests for W-4s from employers in the last week or two," an IRS spokesman said. "We had printed millions of them, but started running out and had to print more." The government is withholding more money under new tables which went into effect Jan. 16. On W-4 forms, workers list their exemptions for tax purposes, and the number of exemptions listed determines the amount the federal government requires to be withheld from pay cheeks. Congress sharply increased this year's withholding rate to make the amount on tax withheld by the employer more closely match the employe's actual 1972 tax liability. 31ixup may cost U.S. $7.7 million WASHINGTON -- Congress may be asked to put up $7.7 million because of a postal rate mixup on income tax forms.

A London high.court judge awarded damages of $9,560 because Provis won't be able to work again. The damage total, the court said, was difficult to decide. Even if Provis hadn't fallen from the barber's chair and aggravated an old neck injury, it was a question whether he could make it to retirement without another accident. Provis' history of accidents began 37 years ago when his jaw was broken in a mine accident. Then a slate fell on his head, he fell off a truck, he fell off a ladder, he had a seizure, he fell in the subway. The final mishap came while he was getting government retraining in Wales. He sat down to let. a trainee barber give him a hair trim. Just as the student barber began snipping around an old scar the chair slipped.

Floros was taken to a hospital in La Gunira with the cut-off sword still protruding from his forehead. JACKIE ONASSIS NOSED OUT BY PRINCESS ANNE, RIGHT TASTE IN NOSE JOBS SHIFTS Princess Anne's aristocratic nose is the rage of fashionable European women who want a npse job, while Jackie Kennedy Onassis' , has nosedived in popularity, says a Viennese plastic surgeon. Dr. Hans Bruck said prospective patients used to come to his office clutching pictures of the former American First Lady saying "I want my nose to look like hers." Now they thrust photos of Britain's princess under Bruck's sniffer. "They want the nose from the House of Windsor, like Princess Anne or Queen Elizabeth," he said. Despite the fact that the English royal family tends to display rather prominent noses, Bruck said, "My foreign patients, who come from northwest Europe, from Scandinavia and England, think this nose has character." Bruck says this probably won't have any effect on the "American nose," however. "The American nose is a small, slightly turned up nose on the short side," he said. "Obviously the great majority of American girls seem to · like it, though this is not true for Europe." Bruck presented a paper Friday ··:·-' describing his experiences in conduct- · ing about 5,000 rhinoplastics -- nose ··'. · jobs -- during the past 20 years to an ··· international conference of plastic sur-v. geons in Miami. , "-'-'"· While there is unquestionably a',: fashion in noses. Bruck said there is .7 also an ulterior motive behind most re-:." quests for operations. "At the time'.-.: that John F. Kennedy was president,!-: young girls used to come to see me'!-; with photographs of Jackie KennedyTC' and they,would say, 'Could you make-, me a nose like this?" Bruck related..?. "If you looked at things objectively," .-.-: he added, "Jackie Kennedy was a .·- striking woman but never a beautiful ·· i one and her nose was never really , : good. All those girls didn't want Jackie Kennedy's nose at all -- they wanted,.-?,; to be the wife of John F." . ··. liiiiiiiiiiiii iiiMiiiiiim iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiii nit iiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiii iiiiiiti Rejected Manson girl INDEPENDENT PRESS-TELEGRAM G. Harrold Carswcll, the man who almost became a U.S. Supreme Court justice, is now busy fighting a bill to restrict the sale of eyeglasses. "I'm enjoying it," said the jurist-turned- lobbyist. Carswell. who has been practicing law in Tallahassee since he bowed out of the public spotlight following his unsuccessful 1970 Senate race, has registered as a lobbyist for the National Association of Optometrists and Opticians. The organization is opposing a bill which would .restrict the opening of branch optometry offices. The one-time U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals judge and President Nixon's second choice for the Supreme Court seat vacated by Abe Fortas, however, wasn't very effective in his lobbying attempt. Despite his energetic plea against the optometrists bill, the committee adopted it 11-0. Winchett Columnist Walter Winchell, 74, remained hospitalized Friday at the UCLA Medical Center with an undisclosed ailment. Winchell entered the hospital last November.
