'wuchmv, .west river gateway to Kwangsi province, is the first major city of importance attacked by the raiders. The report, also claimed seizure of two small Communist held towns in the west river valley, Loling and Yunan. A raid on the south China seaport of Pakhoi, west of Luichow Peninsula, also was reported. The report said the raid caused chaos In Pakhoi and as a result the Communist military commission there moved to Limkong, 80 miles to the ea-it. Most government, dignitaries here declined to comment on Li Tsimg- Jen's blast at Chiang Knl-shcVc over the weekend In New York. As early as 1740, three Marine regiments were recruited in America, assembled In New York tinder tlie command of General Alexander Spotswood of Virginia, and performed valiant service in the West Indies for the Royal British Navy- The American economic system has been proven the "best in the world" on the basis of both material benefits to its citizens nnd its recognition of human values, Robb M. Winsborough of Middle West Service Company, Chicago, said here Saturday at a meeting of Arkansas-Missouri Power Company personnel in the Hotel Noble. Speaking on the second of n two- day general meeting of about 125 Ark-Mo key personnel from the utility's two-state area, Mr. Wins- borough supplemented his address with a film and demonstrations to show how Americans are ter than workers under other economic systems. After a review of the U. S. economic system, he used toy models and charts to show how the system worked on the basis of material benefits. Accomplished over Brief Period The demonstration brought out the fact that Americans, who comprise one-fourteenth of the world's population and occupy one-sixteenth of the world's land area, own three-fourths of the curs In the rid, one-half of the telephones, about three-fourths of the sanitary plumbing, consume half of the codec, use two-thirds of the silk produced in the world. This, Mr. Wlnslimough said, has been accomplished In only about 100 of the 0.000 years of recorded history. Prior to this brief period, he said, nations were ruled by strong central governments with no system of free enterprise. In presenting arguments'to disprove charges that Americans have many material benefits but lack human values, Mr. Winsborough said improved diet and medical progress since 1910 lias increased life expectancy and brought down tuberculosis, typhoid fever, pneumonia and infant mortality rates. Where 44 persons out of every 100 attended school In 1010. the ratio had increased to 79 out of every 100 by 1917, he said. Americans also have purchased life insurance amounting to $1,293 for every person in the nation, he said.

ThE President was specific — although nol detailed—about only two cases where he^wnnts to remove the tax exemptions such organizations usually enjoy: 1. Where business and industrial operations "entirely unrelated to educational activities" have been operated under a school's tax-exempt wing and thus given "competitive advantage" over fully taxable enterprises ni the same line of business. 2. -"Where the exemption accorded charitable trust funds has been used as a cloak tor speculative bus- ines ventures, and funds Intended fo: charitable purposes, buttressed by tax exemption, hnve been nsc<! to acquire or retain conlrol over o wide variety of industrial enterprises." ; The Treasury has shown concern \ over th-? revenue lost through these: channels and now has two cases in i _co»rl in which It Is attempting to | 'subject college-owned businesses to i regular corporate taxes. One deals with an important spnqhctti-mnc- aroni firm. C. P. Mueller Co. of New York, which Is owned by a trust of which the beneficiary Is New York University. The other case involves a plant of the Century Electric Co. of St. Louis and William Jewell College of Missouri. While these cases remain unsettled, there have been other Instances of colleges acquiring business interests by investment of their endowment funds as well as under the 'wills of alumni who die. The Treasury established through questionnaire published recently In luring 1048 by tax exempt organizations which answered the questionnaire. And, the Treasury said, only a minority of the tax exempt organizations sent it data. Rep. Mason (ft-III.), a member of the House Ways and Means (taxation) Committee, estimated that the total volume of these receipts approximates 550,000,000.000 annually and that the government loses about $1,000.000.000 a year in taxes us a result of cxemutions.
