Car Rental Service for Dept. Store By Lamar Matthews (Associated Press Writer) ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) - Customers at Rich's, this city's oldest and largest department store, can now walk in do their Christmas shopping, rent a car and drive out with their purchases. And they can charge it all with their regular Rich's credit card. The car rental service started on Nov. 6, 1967, under a lease agreement between Rich's, and Ohio Rent-A-Car Inc. The rental firm operates the business, using Rich's facilities, promotion, etc., and pays the department store a commission on total rentals. Mrs. E.M.

Lazarus, Inc. a department store in Columbus, Ohio. "We have found that such a service is needed by department store customers, and experience in other stores has proven that this service will be used," Mrs. Kelly said. She said business has been good since the rental service began, but no figures are available on current operations or estimated annual business. About 30 Cars are in service now and present plans are for about 100 to be available for rental. More will be added if needed. ' Rates begin at $5 per day and 5 cents per mile for the compacts and range upward, depending on the type car and equipment. A standard passenger car, fully equipped, for instance, rents for $7 per day and 7 cents per mile. The cars must be checked out and returned to the main Rich's | store downtown at present, but ! plans are to extend the service to a branch store in the suburban Lenox shopping center. "We are not aiming for the commercial trade," Mrs. Kelly said, pointing out that the maximum lease period is one month. "Basically, our's is a family thing for local residents.

Why would a person rent a car from a department store rather than from a regular car rental agency? "The key to the whole thing," she said, "is the fact that their regular credit card can be used to charge the rental as well as serving as a deposit."

Harold Hughes. In a report to Hughes, Edelen said the steps were taken after State Auditor Lloyd Smith criticized the size of the -liquor inventory and said the commission was guilty of "extremely poor management practices." Thank you caH again? It's one of those signs you see so many times— you almost forget that it means anything. But it does. It's what America's business is all about. Maybe a newspaper ad brought you to the .store. Or perhaps a tv commercial persuaded vou to whatever product you bought. But it was you who went there. You paid for [ho item with your money and you are going to take it into your home. And if you don't like it, there's no power on earth that can get you to go back to that store or buy that item again. 'Call again' is what puts you in control of the system. It keeps the people who make and the people who sell, very very sensitive to the fact that: "You pays your money and you takes your choice"., Carroll Doily Times Herald Altar Society Waive 769 Tax Penalties DES MOINES (AP) - The State Tax Commission waived $51,297 in income tax penalties during the past fiscal year, more than 16 times as much as was waived the previous year, according to a report of State Auditor Lloyd Smith. The audit report also showed that the number of penalty waivers, 769, was more than seven times greater than the figure for the 1965-66 Tiscal year, the increase due primarily to waivers for persons failing to file second-half income tax payments before the deadline. Smith noted in the report that the Tax Commission may waive penalties if the failure to make tax payments was due to reasonable cause and not because of willful neglect. Iowa began a withholding system for personal income taxes in January, 1966, so the 1966-67 period is the first year in which the withholding system was in effect.

Colombia (AP) The only son of a baker who unwittingly baked deadly parathion insecticide into loaves of bread was one of 146 persons still in critical condition in Chiquinquira today. Sixty-six children and 10 adults died after eating the bread. The dead were buried in a mass funeral Sunday. Those hospitalized were being treated with antitoxins flown from other parts of Colombia, Venezuela, Panama and the United States. Ayerst Laboratories Inc. of Little Falls, N.J., supplied 456 grams of protopan chloride, enough to treat 400 persons. "God can punish me if I was responsible for this tragedy in any way," said the baker, Aurelio Fajardo. He and the driver of the truck that delivered th« flour mixed with parathion insecticide were in custody but were expected to be released. - tal r^-SESaSESZnSHSESHSHSHFESHSSSHSHEaSZSaSESHSaSESaSZSESHHZSES-^i U-Delt-Em Club Tuesday.
