On the basis of a growing smoker, population and the expectation that employment and personal income would continue to rise, the U. S. Department of Agriculture estimated in 1952 that cigarette . consumption would continue its' postwar upswing in 1953. But ottlical estimates; based on data for the first eight months of, 1953, now place cigarette consumption for the full year at about the 1952 level, according to the federation. It said 'cigarette consumption failed to live up, to advance, estimates despite the fact full employment was maintained and personal income rose, almost six per cent. The federation. said cigarette tax collections for the 41 .states which levy the tax were -3 per cent above ' the ,1952 level from January through September. Federal collections through Auguest were 1.1 per cent under the' same period for 1952. \ •The federation said a comparison of cigarette tax collections by the federal government and the. states indicates that the decline in cigarette smoking was nationwide and not restricted : to the 41 states with state taxes. In 1952, 'state tobacco taxes produced $482,000,000, which .'.Witts 104 per cent more than in 1946. But from .January through ; September of 1953, -tobacco, tax , collections stayed about .at the 1952 level, totaling 5350,000,000 compared. with. 359,100,000 for .the , corresponding : period of 1952; '' Bowl-Shaped Film Made By Eastman ROCHESTER/ N.

MOONEY WASHINGTON, Jan. 14-JnP)- Professonal gamblers report they are taking the public for apnroxl- mately $7,500,000 per month. That's not quite as good as the average of ?8,000,000 a month they admitted to in fiscal 1953. And neither figure is anything at all like the $20,000,000,000 annual gambling- take estimated 1 a few years ago by the Senate's crime committee. The gamblers' own earnings reports are filed with the Internal Revenue Service each month, when the chief of every wagering operation is supposed to pay a tax of 10 per cent on his month's "handle.": Chances are that some members of the wagering underworld are not reporting. For instance, as of last Oct. 31, there were no gamblers registered—no bookies, no numbers games, no nothing — in lower Manhattan, nor m Vermont, South Dakota, Iowa, New Mexico, or Hawaii, for that matter. „ The gambligest state in the union, according to the volume of taxes paid, is Illinois, where gamblers forked over $468,000 (Turing the itirst; lour months of the current fiscal year, representing 10 per cent of their total' take, which would thus be $4,680,000. •The state with the most gamblers, it \vbuld appear, is Washington, where 2,590 signed up in those same four months. But the explanation is punch boards, which flourish in that state end must be registered the same as bookmaking operations under the federal wagering tax law. The Internal Revenue Service cfoes not deny the gambling tax and the stamp are not accomplishing what Congress said they would —expose gamblers, drive them out of business, or at least net the government a lot of tax revenue. Thu service never expected the tax to accomplish any of this, because there were not enough federal agents to enforce the tax law. When gambling slackened, shortly after the tax was enacted, officials attributed it to temporary fright on the part of the undferworld operators. Today they say business is opening up again throughout the nation, and the gambling fraternity is not paying all it owes. Wrong Date DAVENPORT, Wash.
