NAM Finds New Way To Underscore Taxes Always on the ball when it comes to ways and means of driving home to the taxpayer just how much his federal government is costing him, the National Association of Manufacturers has come up with new method of underscoring the present high cost of bureaucracy. In a recent press release, the NAM shows what your tax bill would buy you in the way of a vacation. Pointing out that the average mid- west family pays more in direct and hidden federal taxes each year than it costs to feed that same family, the NAM continues: "What would you do with the money if there were no taxes to pay at all? Jt's fantasy but the National Association of Manufacturers have translated that fantasy into a comparison that makes for an interesting study. Using Missouri as a starting point (and it's close enough to give you an example) the study showed the vacation the average American: family could take each year on their tax money. "The following tax figures include all Federal taxes, direct and hidden. The cost of the vacation .includes everything; i.e., travel expense, hotels and lodgings, 'meals, sightseeing, guided tours, entertainment, etc. It's an all-expense tour for a family of four . . . "Family income of "SI,500 — Direct and hidden federal taxes, $248. Tax is equal to an eight-day vacation at the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri and includes rental of hoats, fishing equipment, swimming, etc. "Family income of ?2,500—Direct and hidden federal taxes, 0175. Tax is equal to a M-day vacation in Canada, including a tour of the Great Lakes, Toronto. Montreal, Lake Cliamplain, Lake George, Lake Placid, Finger Lakes and the Adirondacks. 2,200 miles. "Family income of $3,500—Direct and hidden federal taxes. ?72S. Tax is equal to an 18-day vacation in Florida at Miami Beach with trips to Silver Springs, Marinehuid, Cypress Gardens and the Key.-. 3,300 miles. "Family income of $1,500 — Direct and hidden federal taxes, $1,035. Tax is equal to a 28-day vacation tour of the west including Grand Canyon, Boulder Dam, Vosemite Park, Salt Lake City, Denver, Los Angeles and San Francisco. 5,000 miles. "Family income of $fi,2aO— Direct and hidden federal taxes, $1,613. Tax is equal to a 30-day vacation in the Great North u-cst, touring the Black Hills, Yellowstone, Glacier Park, Canadian Rock- ies, Lake Louise and Jasper Park. 6,000 miles. "Family income of $8,750 — Direct and hidden federal taxes, §2,459. Tax is equal to a 25-day vacation to Hawaii. Tom- includes luxury cruise to Hawaii tnd return vl« itrato cruiser. Visit* to Honolulu, Oahu, Kauai and Maui. "Family income of $12,500—Direct and hidden federal taxes, 3,000. Tax in equal to a 53-day vacation tour of Europe on a famous luxury liner with visits to England, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy and France. "Family income of $17,500—Direct and hidden federal taxes, $G,1GO. Tax is equal to a 59-day vacation on a luxury cruise liner around South America. Ports of call at the Virgin Island, Trinidad, Rio DeJaneiro, Chile, Montevideo, Magellan Straits, Pent, Panama Canal, Jamaica and the Bahamas." The NAM labels this comparison a "Vacation from Taxes." On reading it, we couldn't help but think how gladly we'd give up our annual tsvo-weeks- with-pay in return for such a vacation from excessive tax payments. How to Win Friends Now it's Swiss watches, Before that it was things like almonds, garlic, men's hats, and cheese. These are not random grabs from Alice in Wonderland. They have a great deal in common—the United States tariff policy. The tariff policy in turn is an important hinge on which much of our foreign policy swings. Take watches. The Swiss now hear that this country may raise the import duty on their famous timekeepers. That would put our own watch industry in a better competitive position by increasing the purchase price of Swiss watches here. But Swiss ire rose like an Alp. And they have a point. Every tenth Swiss industrial worker is in the watch industry. Last year one-fourth of Switzerland's exports were watches and clocks. Most of them were produced for export, and about half go to this country. Furthermore, the Swiss last year bought 60 per cent more United States goods than the United Slates bought from the Swiss. Thai's an unfavorable trade balance most any way you look at it. The President explained in effect that he couldn't see the sense in investing billions of dollars in aid to a country like Italy and then putting obstacles in the pa Hi of its paying its own way. Every such step, he said, "is harmful to our mutual security and costly in the end to the consumer and to the American taxpayer." .'.'.. Then came the recent news that a British firm has won a Defense Department contract to furnish the electrical equipment for a North Dakota dam. Under earlier Pentagon policy a foreign company had to hid 25 per cent under U.S. companies to get such a contract. A few more happenings such as these should indicate pretty clearly that U.S. tariff barriers, possibly now at an all-time low, will get a further trimming in the interest of winning friends abroad. And in the not incidental interest of encouraging them to help pay their own ways. Views of Others Curiouser and Curiouser We live in a strange period In American history. Whether it will evcr.lually be chalked up \vith Ihe Decline and Fall of Rome depends upon the steps taken to offset our most alarming blunders. A proposed amrnriment to our c«)j;sll!utjon has bern drawn and sicnnd by 31 members of the Senate, each willine. anrl craving the opportunity of erecting a barrier .igalnsi the peculiar (K-diile with peculiar thought* who still occupy positions from which they mlsht do the country Irreparable harm. The proposed amendment Is aimed at preventing the chatipe of our constitution by treaty when the people are not looking or when they do not imdcrstanr] the const ruction that may be put upon a packace of treaties, a whole stack ol them, in respect to our Bill o! Rights which Includes our fundamental liberties. Those called Do-Goodcrs scoff at Ihe notion that anything: they plan may be loaded with evil for the American vvople but l[ they will read the opinion ol Chief Justice Vinson which sought to uphold Mr. Truman's levy upon the steel plants, they will be forced to a contrary conclusion. The Chief Justice pointed to our treaty Joining the United Nations and our otiier treaty by which we became « party to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, known as NATO. The Chief Justice used these treaties as a substantial basis for his opinion that the preMdent was authorized to seize the steel mills and, naturally In case ol further need, take over the entire country. The 57 senators from both parties want to head off any more of these arguments and sump out forever and a day any possible abridgment of the liberties ol the American people that might and could result from the fantastic treaties that are being suggested at teas and luncheons and dinners and midnight snacks. —Gre*n Bay (Wbc.)

FRIDAY, AUGUST 8, 1M3 HOLLYWOOD — <NEA)— Exclusively Yours: Olivia de Havilland's not snatching and grabbing at flicker parts like other TV-frightened movie queens. She's making her first film since 1040 and another three or even six years may pass before she faces n movie camera again. It all depends on the story and :he role, the two-time Oscar winner says, disagreeing with her big- image sisters when they contend It's important for a star to be seen by the public, even if the vehicle IE a piece of Iripe. "This is ridiculous — It's false thinking," Olivia told me on the set of "My Cousin Rachel."

Lansdale Sniscer of Maryland, the Virginia delegation was seated at fhnn enthusiastic ever. One at a time, county and district Democratic leaders have born announcing that they would support Stc"3nson and Spiiikman.

Virginia went through a similar tangle ill 1048. when an effort was made to keep the Barnes of Harry S. Truman and nlben W.
