New federal income lux withholding rates went Into effect yesterday. That means more lhan 25,000,000 American workers will find the withholding taxes taken out of their next paychecks about a fifth greater. The bigger "lake" from paychecks Is needed to keep taxpayers on a pay-as-'you-Bo basis under the tax boosts voted by Congress to provide >money for the country's big defense build-up. Individual Income (axes were •raised by an estimated »2,100.000.000 » year. Taxes* on corporations were also hiked. The withholding payments taken out of paychecks are pre-uaymenls toward each Individual's final lax bill for this year, due by March 15. As in past years, some individuals will have refunds coming to them from the government. Others will have to fork up some more cash to settle their final lax. But the withholding payments are designed lo come close to the actual amount due. • Tk« NaH*n T«d«y: U.^S. Population How High?

(O>)—\Jn- III recently, It was widely accepted that Ihe population of the United States would reach its peak during ihe second half of the 20th Century and then start slowly downward. That conception'has been jolted almost out of existence. Some experts now put the peak In the early 21st Century. Others challenge the Id*a that we will necessarily reach a peak at any time. All are approaching the subject with new caution and humllit/. The thing thnt did the Jolting was the astonishing upsurge of .the population during the last ten years —a decade that surely deserves to be called the fertile forties. "Astonishing" Is not too strong word for what happened. Since I860 our rate of growth had been gradually dropping. We grew vastly—31 million in 1860, 16 million in 1900. 122 million in 1930— but the percentage of Increase went clown and down. Until 1860 the population had swelled by more :han 30 [>er cent every decade. By Ihe 1920's this had fallen to 16 per cent. The birth rate steadily declined. Families got smaller. Immigration was choked off. Anybody could see where the slowing rate of growth would eventually lead us, if it continued. In Ihe Sterile Thirties . In the sterile thirties the 'population gained only T per cent. This was by far the .lowest rat« of Increase for a ten-year period In: American history. The numerical rise was only 9 million, the smallest since the IBCO's when the total |jop- ulatlon was only one-fourth as big. Then came those fertile forties. The' population gained 19 million, surpassing 150.000,000, In the 1950 census. Numerically the rise beat all previous decades. The rate of Increas* was !4 per cent, not much in the light of the country's pre-1830 history, but twice as high as the rate of the 1930's. : ' One o( the biggest jmrprtses had to do with (he'war. In most pre vlous wars, the birth rat* had gone down (the French-Prussian War of 1870 was one exception) But In World War I, the birth rate soared. War Psycholofjr Helrn War psychology may have helped this trend (for example, many couples hail babies sooner than Ihey might have, because the father was going away to war). But the war apparently wasn't the main cause of the rising birth rale, because It had started to go up even In the thirties, anrt It stayed high after the war ended. The main cause probably was economic prosperity. More people got married. They got married younger. They had children sooner, and they could afford to have more children. But the other forces were at work. Tlter« was a spectacular drop to he deaths of babies lest than ana ;ar old. old. (oiks llved : lonaar lan before. Immigration wis grea- r than expected.
