Recognition for Those Serving on Draft Boards Is Proposed Washington, UJ.PJ -- The local draft board member, as anonymous an individual as ever served the republic, would sort of like a little recognition.

Still and all, Representative Samuel Weiss (D., Pa.,) ' said Thursday, the local draft board member would be grateful tor some small token of his country's appreciation. Weiss said he had talked to many board members, most of them veterans pf the last war, and that they wanted army status in connection with this one. So he suggested, in a house bill, that draft board officials be given "inactive commissions," starting with a second lieutenancy for members with one year of service. They would be automatically stepped up to a grade each year to lieutenant colonel after 5 years. No draft board officers, however, would be eligible for army pay, allowances, pensions, mustering-out pay or other service remuneration, but at the end of the war they would be given at least 30 days in active status without pay. Thus they would be eligible for membership in World War II veterans' organizations. In the meantime, they could wear their uniforms, complete with bars or oak leaves. 1,000 JAPS DROWN Chungking, (iP) -- About, 1,000 Japanese were drowned on Jan. 19 when a medium-sized Japa- 'nese warship sank near Kweichio, Yangtze river port in Anhwci province, when it struck Chinese- laid mines, the Central ..China news agency said Thursday. on Hie Air E v t r A S K F O R MISS MINNEAPOLIS PUBLIC WORKS BLUEPRINTED Could Be Launched 30 Days After War Victory Washington, (A 1 ) -- Secretary Ickes told President Roosevelt Thursday {he interior department has blueprinted a vast public work program, much dt which could be launched within 30 days alter the victory is won. ' In his annual report, Ickes said power and irrigation projects planned by the-department would keep 480,000 war veterans employed for 3 years--225,000 o£ them at construction sites and 255,000 in the plants and factories that would provide materials loi the jobs. He said these projects upon completion, would open farm settlement opportunities to 165,000 families. The secretary listed war activities of his department for the fiscal year ending June 30, including development of hydro-electric power, discovery of mineral ores production of radio insulators am helium, production oC. more fooc iu the west, and the drawing o maps. In post-war planning, Ickes sai the department had wrestled wit the problem of keeping the huge new factories of the Pacific northwest busy when peace comes. "What shall they manufacture and to whom shall they sell it when! the last war contract is finished?" the secretary asked, and said the Bonneville power administration, which distributes low- cost power to these plants, had '"searched diligently lor the answer during the year with some encouraging results, and the search continues." Stating the department has kept n mind "the huge contribution which the United States will have to make to replenish the world's ivar-depleted larder," Ickes said " is prepared to extend irrigation to 6,000,000 additional acres, and to supplement the water supply which now irrigates 9,000,000 acres.

(/P)--Tax simplification may be the peg upon which the treasury will hang another whopping demand lor added revenues next spring. Department officials pointed significantly Thursday to President Roosevelt's recent budget message in which the chief executive urged upon congress the "need for additional revenue beyond that provided in the bill now pending." Although capilol hill at tirst expected any new recommenaa- .tions to be confined to administrative matters--primarily simplification--in all probability they will embrace a revenue demand only slightly less encompassing than last Octobers $10,500,000,000 which, under senate and house trimming, now has shrunk to $2,275,600,000. This bill now is in a senate-house conlerence committee and may reach, the white house next Monday or Tuesday. One i of the bases for the expected treasury requests is its dispute with both senate and house estimates ol the potential yield o£ the pending bill. It takes the view that by halting the scheduled automatic doubling o£ the social security rates--a step that woufd have yielded $1,400,000,000 more cash--congress cut the bill's net yield to little more than 5800,000,000. The department probably will contend that hich taxes need not be synonymous with complicated forms, offering specific suggestions for reducinx the taxpayers' paper work and at the same time, suggestions for stepping "P rates. One step toward simplification has been taken in the current measure by eliminating the 10 per cent earned income credit, thereby permitting a single tax base without the necessity of computing both normal tax and surtax net incomes. In addition to repeal of the victory tax--already considered but rejected--the proposals probably will call for sharply increased and graduated withholding rates to replace the present flat 20 per cent levy after exemptions. 15 POINTS PER CAN SUGAR 5 Pou,d Pk 9 - O O , Granulated ^ ^1 Gold Medal Whole Kernel Corn 2 No. 2 Cans . .25c 13 POINTS PER CAN 4-BAR DEAL FAIRY 20C Paper Shell Pecans Pound-29c Sal Soda.
