OeP--Mrs. Myrtle Tanner Blacklidge was a star boarder at the county jail today, with her bill paid a week in advance. She was the "guest" of Mrs. Suzanne Nottingham, a policeman's wife, who had her clapped into jail last night for failing to pay a $7,500 judgment. Mrs. Nottingham won the judgment in a suit in which she charged Mrs. Blacklidge with stealing the love of the policeman. Mrs. Blacklidge, former collector of internal revenue, was arrested by four deputies while limping away from a south side apartment. Nottingham With Her. Deputy Sheriff Bert Meyering said that Mrs. Nottingham's husband, Norman, was with Mrs. Blacklidge when .she was seized. "Mrs. Blacklidge," he said, "seemed to have a sprained ankle and Nottingham was helping her along." The jury which awarded the wife the judgment found that Mrs. Blacklidge "maliciously" stole Nottingham's affections, so now It Is possible for Mrs. Nottingham to keep her rival in jail six months by IN "LITTLE TAMMANY" BATTLE When Kansas City voters select a new mayor March 37, these two men will be opponents in a contest popularly termed a fight for political existence by "little Tammany."

Avc.--S. of New Postofflco NO RULES MADE ON SALES TAX Notes, Comments With Law Prepared as General Information. DES MOINES, March 22. The state board of assessment and review has as yet made no rules or regulations regarding Iowa's new retail sales tax, John W. Foster, board member, pointed out today. Foster explained that notes and comments included in copies of the tax law which the board made available were prepared as general information and should not be construed as rules or regulations. The two per cent tax on all gross receipts of retailers becomes effective April 1. Permits are not required until June 1 and retailers have been asked to refrain from applying for permits before April 15. Plan Ample Notice. In explaining that no rules or regulations have been made, Foster said they will not be acted upon until the member filling the vacancy caused by the death of Dr. J. W. Reynolds, has had an opportunity to study the matter. He reiterated that ample notice will be given to all persons or firms affected by any regulation of the board. Senator Foster's foreword to the board's copies of the sales tax law follows: "The sales tax is a loose expression which covers a wide variety of different taxes, but current usage limits to two kinds: Retail sales tax or a gross sales tax. The Iowa law is what is known as a retail sales tax. We have for several years had a retail sales tax applicable to gasoline and cigarets. The new law simply applies the same principle to all manner of tangible personal property sold at retail. Iowa Follows Trend. "At the beginning of 1933 there were only two states in the union that had a retail sales tax. A national effort was made to find a source of revenue that would bridge the chasm between public expense and public income. As the outcome of numerous studies of the subject a retail sales tax has now been enacted in more than one-half of the states. Iowa is simply following the general trend. "Our sales tax is a part of the emergency law passed in 1934 to replace the tax on property, it is a companion law to the personal net income tax and the business tax on corporations, all of which were enacted in the same bill. The sales tax takes effect April 1, 1934. Will Supply Copies. " - . "For that reason ; we are ' stib- nritting a copy of the! retail sales tax alone. " We hope the editorial notes may be of some assistance and the whole law will be elucidated by rules and regulations -soon to be published and distributed." Foster said that copies of the law will be supplied on request to retailers or other interested individuals or firms.
