Proud of iheir ability to thread through dense growth, these Jailed tribesmen of Arizona and lew Mexico ended a stalemate Sunday at invaded Arawe on the outhwest coast by breaking through main enemy defenses to Vuch depth that field guns were Captured.

Ruml formerly lived at Cedar Hapids, Iowa. He submitted it lo the house committee on public buildings and grounds, now studying postwar planning, with the preface that if it "makes sense, there are no constitutional or technical reasons" why it can not be adopted now. His program: 1. No public spending for its own sake and no projects merely because they support purchasing power in general. "Let us base our budget estimates on.the efficient and economical carrying out of worthwhile activities to accomplish our national purposes." 2. Lower tax rates "to the point where they will balance the budget at an agreed level of high employment. Taxes should be reduced where they will do the most good in-creating demand and in encouraging private enterprise." 3. Then stabilize taxes "except as there are major changes in national policy. When employment goes beyond an agreed level, or if, with high employment, we Acre Comfort Wearing FALSE TEETH Here is a pleasant way to overcome loose plalc discomfort.

Sunday the "bushmasters" wanted it. The attack was directed by Brig. Gen. Julian Cunningham. The advance moved the American lines pack to within 1,000 yards of Umtingalu village and rendered easier the dispersal of supplies and troops. The invading Tcxans now man beach positions in the sector. On northeastern New Guinea, up the coast beyond invasion- menaced Madang, supply dumps and anti-aircraft . positions at Hansa Bay were attacked with 120 tons of explosives by liberators and Mitchells, escorted by thunderbolts. Other liberators flying 600 miles northwest of Darwin, Australia, set fire to a 9,000-ton enemy cargo vessel at the former Dutch naval base at Ambon on the island of Amboina. Hayfietd -- The Teachers association held its monthly meeting at the home of Mrs. Margaret Barrett at Forest - City Monday evening. A TRIBUTE TO THE have a boom in prices, let us hold the surplus or use it to reduce the national debt, not as an excuse for further tax reduction." 4. Retention of the principle of progressive income taxes and estate taxes "as the best way of reversing the tendency of purchasing power to come to rest. Let us reduce the' rates on the /fidividual income tax to stimulate consumption and to make possible investment in new enterprise on a business basis." 5. A planned public works program "not to balance the whole economy, but to help toward stabilizil ' " dustry." 6. "Let us neutralize the social security programs as far as their fiscal influences are concerned. Since their beginning they have been highly deflationary; for old age security, let us set our rates and benefits so that they come somewhere near balancing; and for unemployment insurance, let us set our rates so that intake and outgo balance at high levels of employment." 7. Retain "important excise taxes" for the time being "and get rid of the rest." 8. "Let us arrange our lending abroad, whether for stabilization, relief or long-time reconstruction, so that it will support rather than contradict fiscal policies adopted to strengthen o u r ' domestic economy." 9. Reorganization of the parts of the federal government that' have to do with fiscal policy and administration. "We want clarity in policy, consistency in administration and co-operation between the executive and legislative branches." Ruml told the committee that during the transition period after the war. the 9-point program 'would provide a flow of purchasing demand, which springs authentically from the tens of millions whose tax burdens will have been reduced." "It will," he said, "express in a mosaic aggregate the popular interpretation of the American way of life as pictured in consumer preferences. Against this background, the readjustments ot employment and the .reconversion of business and industry can more readily occur." /VT the beginning of a new year we pay tribute to **· those loyal citizens who serve behind the retail counters of America. Shortages, complications of rationing, the fact that many of their number are in the armed services, make their job today more difficult than ever. Despite all of this the retail selling job has its high rewards! Good rqtail salespeople like their work! They like to meet and Serve people! They take pride in eacli sale well made! And they know that on the home front they support the war effort by helping to maintain our high standard of living. Try to imagine, for a moment, how your family's daily needs--food, clothing and household supplies--· could be taken care of if all ( the retail salespeople were suddenly spirited away! * * * During 1944 we will do our best to make pleasant and profitable the work of the people who meet and greet you in Penney stores. Not only that, but as a genuine community service we shali put into their hands, for you, the maximum of value and quality that war conditioni allow.
