INCREASE IN '43 Lake Postoffice Has $2,760 Gain in Year Clear Lake--Increase in receipts lor the year 1943 over the preceding-year at the Clear Lake post- office was $2,760.77, Postmaster Mary D. Carroll announced Thursday. The increase in the quarter ending Dec. 31 was 5963.07 over the corresponding quarter oi a year ago. Every, month in the year, as well as every month in the final quarter, showed an increase, she said. Total receipts for the year 1943 were $26,793.32. The rate of increase is more than 10 per cent. The good showing is due to 2 factors, Mrs. Carroll believes. The postoffice is serving more people this year than last, there being but very few vacant houses in the city. Another is that each family is writing more letters since nearly every one has some member in defense work or the services to whom letters are written regularly. The public co-operated exceptionally well in the early mailing of Christmas packages to sailors or soldiers, very few, if any, getting started too late to be delivered on time. r opens Jan. 17.

SIMPLIFYING OF TAXES IS URGED Carlson Calls Present System "Hodge-Podge" Washington, (/P)--A m a j o r legislative operation designed to make it unnecessary for millions of persons to file' any federal income tax returns at all was proposed Monday by Representative Carlson, (R-Kans.). Most income taxes would be deducted automatically from wages and salaries under his plan. The Kansan, a member oE the tax-initiating ways and means committee and author of the Ruml pay-as-you-go bill, described present revenue statutes as "a hodgepodge of language that can not be correctly and definitely -interpreted by a Philadelphia lawyer." Declaring simplification to be "the No. 1 tax job" lor 1944, he inserted in the Congressional Record ' his own suggestions for remedy, as follows: 1. Simplify and improve current withholding provisions so as to eliminate the need for any returns to be filed by 30,000,000 of the 40,000,000 to 50,000,000 taxpayers. "This could be done by adopting a graduated withholding from wages and salaries," he said, "and at the same time allowing a percentage of income exemption" in lieu of the present deductions for other taxes paid, interest and onlributions to churches and harily. 1. Combine existing personal in- ome tax laws into one base and ale. "Under existing law we have me base and varying rates for he regular income tax and a ieparate base and rate for the victory tax," he said. "Every taxpayer must wade through this nightmare of confusion in order o determine his liability." 3. Repeal earned income credit. 'There is sound argument for reaming the earned income credit, but its retention greatly complicates our tax return and is of little Buy War Savings Bonds and Stamps from your Globe-Gazette carrier boy. One .tablespoonful of kitchci . fat will make 5 machine gun bul- I lets. actual benefit to the taxpayer." The ways and means commit- :ce, after long labors last summer ind fall, brought out a bill com- ;ining the victory tax with the normal income levy. The house passed the measure, but the senate finance committee struck this provision out oC the $2,000,000,000- plus 2nd wartime revenue measure. The senate will debate the measure when congress reconvenes next week.
