Senator George Sees Danger in Drastic Levies Big Increases for Income Tax 'May Destroy Little Man' VIENNA, Ga., Aug. 2 UP) Sen ator Walter F. George, Georgia Democrat, chairman of the senate finance committee, warned today that further drastic increases of individual income taxes may destroy the nation's little man, and asserted: "The virility and strength of any civilization depends upon the middle classes. There is no other way to pull together the very poor and the very rich. The middle class is the liaison." Observing that revenue of the federal government has increased 10-fold in the last decade, Senator George said in an interview at his home that new taxes to be enacted at the forthcoming session of coa gress may be expected to yield not more than five or six billions of dollars, or scarcely one-half the a& ministration's estimate of need. Federal income now, he said, is approximately 35 billions of dollars annually, and new taxes would raise this to possibly 40 billions. The magnitude of the job can be appreciated, he continued, when it is remembered that all federal in come, including tariffs, never ex ceeded three or four billions aiv nually prior to 1933 UNIFORMITY NECESSARY "One of the strong reasons why I believe we cannot greatly increase individual rates in 1943," he explained, "is that under law, in' come tax rates must be uniform. Since we have this principle, any drastic increase would be overwhelming for those taxpayers with low or moderate fixed incomes, such as wages, salaries, self-owned business, annuities and the like." MELONS Almost every season California grow, erg introduce a new melon sensation to tempt the palates of the American public. And because melons cross easily, a bewildering variety in many sizes, colors, and flavors have been star attractions on American menus for more than four decades. Today, from some 38.000 acres. California ships 4,500.000 crates of assorted melons to eastern wholesale markets. After they are picked, melons are crated and then placed immediately in refrigerator cars where fans whip a blast of cold, moist air off some 5,000 pounds of ice placed in large bunkers at each end of the cars. When the fruit is thoroughly cooled, these bunkers are refilled with ice and the cars start on their way to market. , , j Melons, like other strongly flavored foods, can be kept perfectly in the modern Air-Conditioned ICE Refrigerator without transferring their odors to other more delicately flavored foods. The washed, purified air which is an exclusive feature of the modem ICE Refrigerator circulates constantly through the food compartment, removing all food gases and odors. Covered dishes are unnecessary in the modern Air-Conditioned ICE Refrigerator. Just As Ice protects perlftliuhles best on (heir Ionic haul to market, ho does Ice in tli a modern Air-Condi ti o ned ICK Refrigerator protect foods best in the home. New modern ICK Refrigerators are available now. Ask about them!

Bad News for Tokyo Seen in Big Navy Bill WASHINGTON, Aug. 2 UPi-A heavy increase in the weight of the amphibious striking forces thrown at the Japanese in the Pacific was forecast in congressional circles today as the result of President Roosevelt's transfer- of $4,-000,000,000 in' potential army expenditures to the Navy. Although official sources insisted that the fund transfer would not alter the pattern of over-all global warfare, Senator Burton, Ohio Republican, a member of the Truman war Investigating committee, said it seemed apparent to him that any increase in naval outlays spells bad news for Tokyo.
