SMART SPRING COAT DOCTORS DO NOT HAVE TO PAY TAX Not Subject to Levy Upon Services but Only on Remedies Sold. DES MOINES. April 18. U'J-- Physicians and surgeons primarily give personal services, the stat-3 board of assessment and review held today, and so are not subject to payment of the retail sales tax on receipts from such services. They are consumers of such tangible personal property as medicines, drugs, dressings, bandages and the like, the new rule stated. Sales of these articles to a physician or surgeon would be taxable. In instances where physicians compound their own remedies and sell these apart from the giving' of service these sales are subject to the tax. They also are taxable on receipts from sales on proprietary medicines. The rule was one of three adopted by the board and announced by John W. Foster, vice chairman. The other two put into rule form previous practices of the board. One held that returns must be made on total receipts and the other that merchants must collect the tax on the total purchase price of the articles sold to a consumer and not on separate articles.

Light oil, while desirahle for quick starting in cold weather, is subject to higher consumption in warmer weather. Futhermore, if you drove with ordinary oil during the winter, the chances are that right now there's an accumulation in your crankcase of that thick, gritty compound of dirt, moisture and broken- down oil, known as sludge. Sludge is a fuel-waster and oil- eater. It causes piston rings to slick so that they pump oil; it slows down valve-action no thai you gasoline power. Getting rid of Sludge permanently is not hard. Just have your crankcasc drained -- then refilled with 1S( I-V IS " D . tin,- Auii- Sludge motor oil. It will keep your motor clean, lively and efficient -- requiring far less oil between drains.
