Ban Axis Tainted Gold ALLIES TIGHTEN ECONOMIC NOOSE Gold Had Gone Through '\ Neutral Countries Washington, (B*) -- The allies tossed a new economic noose around the necks o£ Germany, Japan and their sattelites Tuesday, decreeing that they would not hereafter accept axis tainted gold from neutral countries. . The V. S. treasury, acting in concert with England and Russia, A 1V announced it would refuse to take such gold from'any nation and Treasury Secretary Mor^enMiau stated the United States government would refuse to recognize sales of any gold looted by the axis. \ Berlin in particular has been using gold resources to keep for- INCOME TAX Service Bureau 213 FIRST NATIONAL BANK BLDG. TELEPHONE 1026 eign supply sources open, and it was asserted at the treasury increasing amounts of so-called "German gold" has recently been finding its way into neutral gold markets, primarily in Turkey, Switzerland, Spain and Portugal. Ansel F. Luxford, assistant general counsel'of the treasury, said Tuesday's announcement "is for (lie purpose of letting the world know that the title which purchasers of looted axis gold are being given is not going to be recognized as good by the United States, the united kingdom or by Russia." Luxford explained that while Germany was winning on all fronts, gold transfers were not a vital factor because Germany could obtain ample supplies on credit, but, he added: "Since the shift of the war, however, we have been getting report after report of German embarrassment in trying to pay for her purchases." This, he said, resulted from dec- ognition by neutral countries that German credits will be useless when she is defeated. Luxford said one effect of the declaration would be to immobilize virtually all looted gold until the countries from which it was taken can put in claims for it. Quantitatively, the action will apply chiefly to Germany, reputed to have about 51,000,000,000 in looted gold. - However, Japan has taken some gold from'China and Hong Kong "and undoubtedly has bqen working the Philippine gold mines" Luxford stated.

It is evidence, according to Lyle W. Ashby, assistant editor of the National Education Association Journal, that "people like to be children again." Thadis, he adds, "grown-ups still hke to play." To Psychiatrist Dr. Winfred Overholser. who doesn't know whether does do or don't, the double-talk song is "just one of those curious phenomena that go to show people are human after all." _ Overholser says Mairzy Does not indicate that the whole world will collapse Edy middit or edy other such thing. "A little foolishness served, "is relished by the best of served, 'is relished by the best of pi en." Editor Ashby says Mairzy is no more dangerous to your sanity than Lewis Carroll's "h-illig- bnlhg stuff," although he is not ready to predict any such lengthy and quotable life for Doats. "If people have a good time singing Mairzy Doats," he adds, 'Let's just say ':God bless it,' and make the most of Mairzy. "It's a good sort of release. Cheers people up. You might say it relieves the tedium of being serious about things." Furthermore, Ashby indicates, you cannot be too young or to old for Mairzy. Suppose a sedate white-haired lady should be impelled to whistle Mairzy as she walks down the street or waits for a bus? "Well," answers Ashby. "ied- der."
