The time for fU ng Income tax returns expires at midnight tomorrow. IV filed after that hour they will be a ibject not only to whatever tax may be shown to be duo, but also to interest and penalty for failure to file OB t me. The Income reported and the deductions claimed In the returns must be verified by the Bureau of Internal lievenue within two rears after tho returns aro Hied. Tho preparation o£ a. return need not be viewed with apprehension It tho instructions appearing on the reverse side of the forms, and the Interpretations ah Klvon in the sevlei of articles in these columns, are carefully observed. The information called for by tho forms can be easily supplied. Tho questions at the top of the returns, us to whether taxpayers were nmrrlecl mid living with husbands or wives on 'he last day of the taxable year, and the number of dependents, should not present any difficulty. The answers to these questlous are essential In ·verifying the amount claimed as per- lonal exemption, and credit for dependents. The filing lu of the Hems of tfross income, deductions and credits, and tho computation of the tax will be comparatively easy if instructions are carefully followed. In computing the amount of the tax that is found to be payable it should be born in mind that action by Congress reduced the rates after the blank forms tor tho year 1929 had been printed. Instead of the old rates of 1% per cent on the first $4,000, three per oent on the next $4,000 and live por cent on the balance of your taxable income, the new ra^es have been reduced one per cent and are one-half of one per cent on the first $4,000, two per cent on the second $1,000 and four per cent ou the balance. If you are in doubt as to the manner of making your return U will bp advisable to coiuult with persons experienced In making out tho forma, of whom there are several in Con- nellsvllle. It will be far bettor and cheaper to pt.y them a fair foe than to run tho risk of having to pay a fine ImpdstKl for failure to ftle in time or making out an incorrect return. never -were thay eubjectr l to the rigid and prejudiced cross questioning the advocates of tho drys ti,ro obliged to undergo.

The demand for cars haa long been regarded as about the most accurate Index of conditions in industry. When consumers are taking larger quantities of commodities than during an immediately proce-ding period, or a corresponding period at a remote date, more cars aro i equired for the movement of the truffle that is being pro- vkied. Any Increase in the number of cars that will be needed for such movement is, in consequence, to be taken as an indication that the volume of traffic Is g«ater. By this measure the shippers comprising the membership of the Allo- g'hony Regional Advisory Bon-rd, which includes Western Pennsylvania, Kastern Ohio and Northern West Virginia, flnrl that during the three months beginning April 1 sin incroaKt, of five per cent, or 50,922 cars, will be necessary to tako cure of tho requirements, a c compared with the second quarter of 1029. Among the c ommodiUes for which an Increase !s preJicted aro those especially related to the construction seuson which will be featured by much activity (hiring this period. The seasonal movement in car lots of fresh fruits, g r U n , livestock, flour and mill products is expected to bo fully as large as during the same quarter a year ago, tho total volume of freight movement will be larger than a year ago. Among tho commodities for which an increase Is predicted is coal and coke, the larger movement of which is expected to require 9 3 per cent more cars th:m aro now employed. The product oi the mines constituting about 50 per cant of the trdillc of the railroads, tho forecasts very plainly indicate that tuo business of the railroads will exjrerience a material increase. When the lallroada aro busy it Is invariably found that other lines of business onjo a corresponding measure of prospei ity. If thl.s proves true during the spring months, as is reasonably expected it will do, the (Jon- neUsville He«ion should have considerably nun activity than has taken place during i 1 * !li»t quarter of tho veor.

WASHINGTON, Mi-rch 14. -- The London Conference, having % rejected the idea of a separata treaty of consultation, the Idea now Is being advanced here that a piovialcm may be Included in the naval limitation treaty which would require the fflgnatoriee to oommiunlqate with ono another In any situation threatening a disturbance of world peace. Tactically a separate treaty was Sn- exieclient because !' meant the opportunity for a light more or less along the lines of tl e World Court controversy, but wlu n once the conciliation provision Is eniibodied Jn the navaJ agreement It would be n-eces- ·sary for members of tJie United States Senate to record tli m-sfllTes against tho whole pact, it th y wished to prevent tfts^ Inclusion if a consultation clause, , It would be hatur il, of cours*-, for reservations to be proposed to any consultation provision. Such reserva- UOUB might sita'te Uiat the clause In no way commits the Uniied Stateii to political ontangements or Involves a moo-al obllg-atlon to use foroe ov take siflefl. Such reaorv ition'-s might , or might not b« acoeptoble to the foreign powers who signed the treaty, but as a rule the ratification of a treruty does not necessarily recjuire waiting for other powers to 'put in reservations. By some consultation clause, too, the French might b» able to recede from their ixnnag-o iigures at this time and when once the naval limitation Is agreed upon, a deflt Rio a of American obligations under the consultation paragraph might not affect the ratification of the treaty by Prance. It is therefore considered probable here that some way will be found soon to reconcile the French viewpoint and that of th-fr other i aval powers. Ou the other hand, the Intimation now is that naval limitation ought to be worked out ftrst am 1 then a discussion begun aa to what itnpltod assurances might be derived rom a clause requiring not mutual awslfttance- but mutual consultation. The A-merlcan d ^egatton at the moment is unwilling to place itstolf In the position of nargainlng for a French recession by offering now a consultation treaty The theory of the consultation plan a th4t wlien once armament is ]lmlt-*t or reduced, all the naval powers should have a chance to revise upward or downward If any war clouds properly belongs in a naval treaty of long duration and It Is defirert that the ne\ treaty be made tor at leasit 10 years. While prese dispatches from abroad reflect foreign Minister Brland'a pessimism over the outcome of tho conference, this I« merely taken to mean here that lio has pursued the policy yt trying to get a separate treaty and, havlnp tailed on fchat, IH 'turning ^owaril 1 rcuiier Tartiiou to come in \vith a solution. The provision regarding consultation and reviaiio-n of armament may be the compromise.

SPRING TRADE Real Fight on Tariff Will Begin After the Senate Passes Its Bill By UHARI/BJS P. STEWART Central Press Staff Writer. ·WASHINGTON, March 14--Whence comes tr-e aotfi«n that the tariff flght will be over when the Senate paeaca the. tariff bill? Then !« when It will "begin. The roal fight will be between the Senate and the House of Representative*. The preliminaries, aUU In pro- gre4s, signify nothing In particular. Betting ou the main encounter's outcome Is about 50-50. A draw te a distinct possibility. That is to say, the two houses may fall to pet together. In other words, perhaps no bill at all will go through. For nearly a year Congreee has been struggling ·with lh- tariff. It to at laaet as Ilko- ly ae not that the struggle will end with tho tariff remaining Just aa It IB now. * * * Bogftnilng last spring, the supposition WPS that the tariff was to be changed principally for agriculture's benefit. The farmers complained that the protection enjoyed by the manutae- l.urei-6 had made prices high on everything agriculture has to pay for, but (hat they themselves were eo Inadequately protected that prices stayed low on everything they had to «ell. They wantd to be protected equally With' the industries, maybe not in ijulte tho same way, but somehow or ·other. This was what it was assumed the 71st Oongrose was going to attend to when if. mot In extra session in April, 1920, soon after President Hoover had been Inaugurated. * * · Tho Representatives promptly got busy, inaerauch fie theiva la the house in which all financial legislation 'JUIHI originate-. Tho result was far from what agriculture had expected. The Representatives did, indeed, in- creaae tariffs. They boosted them to the highest lovely over known in the world'ti history, but the advances almost nil were on manufactured products. Such advances ae agriculture did get were enoimously more than offset by the industrial Increases. True, the now farm Txard was created, to do what it could tor th« dtBtra«ed agrarians, However, In case 1he now board actually helped the farmers to make any more money, it was evident that the manufacturers' Increased tariff advantage would enable tho Industrial magnates to take It aw.iy from them In less than no time. * » » The assertion that tho tariff bill paaeeil by the ReiH'OHont ittves was 6omethlng (-earful and wonderful can hardly bo successfully disputed, considering that it ovon shocked some o£ the rnosl unmitigated old protectionists lu tho Senate, when IL arrived at their end of the Capitol building to be acted on. To be sure, big business aonvehow missed gaining control ol the Senate at the 1928 election. It sained control of the Houae of Representatives, and. for awhile it thought it was In control of the Senate also, but as to tho latter body one of, Its eo?e slipped somewhere, * * * Accordingly the Senators immediately begiiu taking the Representative*' bill apart and making it over again--decidedly less to the manufacture! ' Interest; decidedly more to agriculture's. Na'urally the Representativee' lead- ore, who framed the bill, have gone almost delirious with indignation as tlu^y watched thie perfoimance. It aifo nits tor thj amount of lowering tUo haw done uoncuruiug the tlnio tho Senate wa§ wasting.

A conference committee, rep event- ing both houses, will have t take the two bills and uae If it can at ree on a compromise, It may euccoed and it may tot. The Representative*! certain ? will prefer the present law to the Senator's bill and tho Senators ce -tainly will prefer the present law o the Representatives' bill.

But Washington remained firm. The man was a fipy and must luvng. JBvwn the men in tho ranks took Andrs's aide, and every «ne of hie technical enemle* was Actually hie friend. Still, Washington remained flrm. But it began to look, after a while, as though Washington, If be wanted Andre hanged, would have to do the job hlrnnelf; for, In spite of the large tee offered, nobody would volunteer to play executioner In this In- etamse. Wiien, at leaet, one man did consent to do the deed, he consented only on the provision that hia name be kept a strict secret. A huge crowd turned our.

Although no general census has been taken in Ghls country tince 1820, a careful efltltnate indicates 40 pel- cent ot the children o£ agen 15, 16, 17 and 18 were enrolled in public high schools about 1923, and 60 per cent la 1028, The rapid growth which waa experienced between 1015 and 1»25 8«oin« to be followed by a period of growth that Is decJdedlr e lower; «o much so, that It Is difficult to forecast how soon an additional 10 per cent of the children of high echool age will be enrolled in public high ;)choolH.
