The driver. J. William 'Foley.i Musi Pay Interest swung back into the proper lane, ,,_ As t t vers rcalize £» JUSt 6 learmng there is no interest charge made upon taxes due and owing for the first 60 days following the levy . The city tax collector will accept partial payment on real estate and personal taxes, John J. Long, finance commissioner, announce'^ today. Long said that upon reading the report of Tax Collector George's. Davis on the current status of collections, he was extremely gratified " to note the bigh percentage »f taxes already paid. "It indicates that the taxpayers are interested in paying their taxes before the interest period to drive again." Foley has just returned from Japan after two tours (four years) as a civilian employe of the federal government. He reports Ho Washington November 28 s for reassignment and if it's foreign service Foley hopes, or at least gives that impression, it will be Japan. . "I'm familiar with it .and, have a lot of-friends there," he said. The car which Foley took with lirri overseas and brought back on he SS President. Wilson October i, has attracted considerable at- ention .because of its Japanese icense. plates which are good for 0 days here. College In-Japan Foley. 28,-is the son of Mrs. Ann King, 1S22 Bedford Road. He was graduated from' Fort Hill High School in 1945,. Potomac State Col- ege, Keyser, and received" his B: degree at Sophia University, op- jrated by Jesuit priests in Tokyo. Prior " to entering government ervice in 1950, he was represent- tive.of the R. J. .Reynolds To iacco Company. The Far East was his first as fgnment. and during His stay hi as collected scores of souvenirs hich he sent home. . Another ,700-pound box is on its way anc date. August 24, but after the expiration of that 60-day period there is a charge of one-half of one per cent per month. This in terest is retroactive to the date of the levy. "Since the 60-day period of grace has expired, it is quite possible that some taxpayers have not been able to take advantage of that period when interest is not charged because of some other pressing obligations. "Accordingly, I wish to state that the tax collector's office is willing to accept partial payment on taxes due. There . have been many; *inquiries concerning whether the tax office will accept installment payments less than the full amount which is due, and the answer to that question is 'yes.' Suggests Budget "In fact, we urge people to en- hbuld•' arrive soon. There are memories, too. Economics for example. ; Even efore he Breached. San Francisco n his homeward journey he began o sense again that "feeling o rosperity which once was taken or granted but in four years has een almost forgotten'." He recalled standing four hours utside a San "\Francisco hote just looking at the new cars anc e well-dressed people." Pace Much Slower There's a big difference in the ace of life, too. It's obvious he eferred to the slowness of it in apan and explained it this way There are no ulcers in Japan. A sychiatrist would go broke." This despite the fact Japanese— especially the young people—ar becoming "westernized" by the presence of U. S. government fam ilies. .The younger set,. Foley contin ued, has "really gone western' and dress like American youth while doting on the latest in "jazz music" and movies. They grab up movie and romance magazines originated in the U. S. but printec in Japanese, "like hot cakes." They are also adopting Amcr ican first names like "Peggy" and "Betty." Older people go along with the western style when they have to- such as in dress for work, But' as soon as a man returns home at the, end' of the day "it's off with the suit, on with the kinipno and back to the old Japanese way of life," Foley related. Too, the old Japanese belief that the elders should have final say, is beginning to meet resistance from the younger people. Take marriage for instance: Resist Arranged Marriages • There are still strong tendencies ;oward "arranged" marriages whereby the two to be wed have no say. The family makes arrangements, sometimes years before the couple is'of marriageable age. Since laws requiring boys and Local Rubber Workers Plan Christmas Party .

"I would like to point out alsb| that a service charge of 50 cents must be made to cover the notice which is given all delinquent accounts on which no payment has been made for taxes prior to January i, 1956. "If the taxpayer has made some down payment on his taxes prior to that date, he will save himself this service charge. "The tax collector's office is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. five days a' week, and particularly I wish to emphasize that there is always someone in the tax office during the lunch hour period. "As finance commissioner"! wish to call this matter to the attention of the taxpayers so that they may be aware of our desire to extend all reasonable cooperation." Joint Service Planned Here By Churches A joint Thanksgiving Day service will be held Thursday at 10:30 a.m. at Centre Street Methodist Church with members of the First Presbyterian Church taking part. Rev. Howard M. Amoss. pastor of the Centre Street Methodist Chruch, said the sermon, "God in he Autumn Harvest," will be de- ivered by Rev. Maurice D. Robertson, pastor of the First Presby- ;erian.

The result has been many young couples are taking the "leap"— but off a cliff. .That this possibil- ty is recognized is borne out by :.he fact where many have jumped ;o their deaths, signs have been erected saying "Think About It." This same family, "rule" works well where crime is concerned. (Continued on Page 22) C&A OFFICIAL—Gerald E. Wilson, Mt.

Race will head a delegation of seven members of the committee which was 'formed after five Frost- ourg residents were killed in La- Vate when their car was hit by a tractor-trailer truck that went out of control on Big Savage. / The committee went on record as objecting to the system of signs the State Roads Commission is to erect In a recent letter, Russell McCain, chairman of the State Roads Commission, stated signs are being prepared as follows for erection on Big Savage Mountain. He also pointed out that the same kind of signs will eventually be erected on every mountain In Maryland. A 36 by 36 inch diamond shaped sign, black on yellow refectoriz- ed with the following wording "truck notice 1000 feet ahead" will be erected 1.000 feet in advance of the mountain lop on the west side of Big Savage Mountain.

He said that it has ceased to be a local te- sue in that it has received nationwide publicity and safeguards must be taken here in view of the fact that a densely populated area lies directly astride the highway.
