12-Tuesday, May 11,1965 Hedlands My facts_ Telephone industry seeks end to 'temporary' tax One of the outstanding telephone utility leaders in the state outlined today efforts being made by the telephone industry to eliminate the 10 per cent "luxury" tax on telephone calls. In a letter addressed to area business executives J. C. "Curl" Newman, Vice President-Telephone Operations of the California Water & Teleplione Company called for their support in 'the repeal of this long term tax as it applies to business and residence telephone service. Newman, a past president of the California Independent Telephone Association related the long and arduous efforts of the Association and his company in the campaign toward elimination of the 20 year old "temporary" telephone excise tax. Newman said his company felt it was imperative that it take all reasonable means to inform telephone users throughout its operations that it pres ent recommendations on the new Federal budget are f o 1- lowed, all excise taxes not re moved by congressional action during the current session will become permanent. He pointed out that the 10 per cent excise tax on telephone calls was established as a "temporary emergency measure" 20 years ago during World War II. He said, "This tax is discriminatory since no other household utility service is similarly taxed." Newman also stated, "It's a double taxation on the telephone user who must pay the 'luxury' tax in addition to the normal business taxes the telephone company pays out of rates charged for service." He urged the executives to write their congressman in Washington, D.C., urging repeal of the tax. He added that ap proximately 80 bills already have been introduced in Congress which would either eliminate the tax immediately, or following the telephone industry's recommendation would eliminate the tax in three steps. "These three steps," he said, "would first eliminate the tax on residential use, then on so- called 'competitive services', and finally eliminate tax on business and toll uses in two stages of five per cent reduction each." Low income not reason for iuvenile delinquency Challenging the assumption that juvenile delinquency is fostered by "poverty, broken homes, alcoholism and the like," XJCR sociologist Aaron V. Cicourel, says his own work leads him to believe that the high correlations between lower- income families and delinquency rates may not mean much. Dr. Cicourel, who is chairman of the department of sociology at Riverside is now completing a two-year study relating to "The Family Context of Delinquency." He spoke on this topic in the eighth of a series of University Extension lectures on "Delinquency and YouUi" this week in Colton. There is no substantial difference in delinquency rates between lower-income and upper- middle-income groups, Cicourel asserted. It appears that way in statistics, he said, because there is much "hidden delinquency" among the latter groups which "simply doesn't get reported." Upper and middle class families have "financial and social resources which they can mobilize to protect their children." The sociologist also noted that such families frequently have the means to deal with so-called delinquent children by "shipping them out to private schools." Delinquent children from lower- income homes are "shipped out'' only by the state or county, he observed. Kinds of delinquent acts committed by children from upper and middle-income homes do differ from those associated with lower-income groups. Dr. Cicourel noted. Among the higher income groups the delinquencies are much more apt to be in the classifications of "alcoholism, drug additiction, and incorrigibility" rather than the violent- type crimes more frequently committed by the lower-income delinquents. It is very difficult to pass judgement on whether a home is "good" or "bad". Dr. Cicourel stressed. Sanitary conditions, good nutrition and plenty of clothes are no indication of the relationship which exists between parents and children. "All families have some kind of trouble," he beUeves, "because any marriage is a crucial negotiation." Children of busy, community- oriented, middle or upper in come parents may not see any more of their mother and father than the children of a divorced, workmg mother in a lower-income group the sociologist said. The children of the latter are no more likely to become delinquent than the former. Dr. Cicourel contends. Humorously describing the 'ideal .'American family," Dr. Cicourel spoke of "a father, mother, and two or three children, and well-dressed, well- scrubbed and well-fed, walking hand-in-hand and serenely smiling on their way to church Sunday morning." "I'd like to find that family," he said, "because if I did I'm sure it would consist of a male actor, a female model and some kids they dug up somewhere to pose for a commercial." When one sees a family that looks like this "ideal," the chances are, said the sociologist, that "the smiling Mama has .lust given junior a good shake and told him to be a good Christian today — and like iti" Saw Sons Take Office The fathers of four U.S. presidents lived to see their sons take office: John Quincy Adams.
