Sunday, Mary Martin, who ha.' been virus-bugged and abroil with 103 degree fever since Thursday, bounced on with not one, but count 'cm, two NBC-TV specials. To complicate matters, 36 members of her cast and crew also were bc-bugged and the situation was so serious that: 1. NBC was spending $60 a day on medicine for the afflicted. 2. Miss Martin's understudy. Beryl Tobin, was standing by at showtime. EARLY BIRD SHOPPEHS TAKE ADVANTAGE Of A'P 's EARLY FRESH LEAN GROUND BEEF A&P Quality U.S.D.A. CHOICE LARGE LOIN 79 C lb.

Director Vincent Uonehuc had 40 work in a facial mask toj ward off the assembled diseases The trouble was well worth it. Both specials — the daytime "Magic With Mary Martin" and Uie nighttime "Music With Mary Martin" — were slickly packaged and were. I'm sure, a joy to all ol Miss Martin's fans. Miss Martin, I must admit, is one of my lesser enthusiasms— her excessive coyness and continual cheer erode my nerve ends— but she has reached holy statu-, by now and along with mother, flag and Albert Schweitzer is in I vulnerable to criticism. However. I can sense her attraction for others: She has vast resources of energy, tries hard to please and goes to some pains to honeycomb her main bocher elegance with Sears Roebuck homespuncss. Her daytime show — pitched at those who are too old for Captain Kangaroo and too young for Dick Clark — was an attempt to feci >oungsters the sort of fantasy in which they had to work a little themselves: Imagine a prince. <i chimney corner, a ball. The pos tulate was that the audience is just as much a part of a show as the performer, a rather agreeable premise and the kids seemed to enjoy their work no end. The nighttime show was a production beauty, uncluttered and a traveler. It was afflicted a bit too heavily with pre-fab glee, but HONEST JOHN IN GERMANY—West German soldiers race to their stations at the firing ramp of an Honest John rocket in Donncrsberg.

He regards the Easter Monday event at the White House as fine for just about everybody but himself. If the President can get away next week for a spring vacation in the south. • there's good news awaiting him at the Augusta Na tional Golf Club. Clifford Roberts, the club board chairman, reports "the golf course has never been in quite as good condition as it is at this time." He says the fairways are closely mowed but allow only a moderate amount of roll and the greens are "true, firm and fast." The President, if he gets away, would drive in Georgia within a day or two after the Masters Tournament ends next Sunday at the Augusta National. After four days of tournament play with a gallery in the thousands, the course might be a bit scuffed up. But the club promises to have all the candy wrappers and coffee cartons picked up.

If he wants an add ed festive touch, there's an open grill near the patio for hot dogs and hamburgers. "The middle class is being taxed out of existence. The income tax is fulfilling the Marxist (Socialist) prophecy that the surest way to destroy a capitalistic society is by "steeply graduated' taxes and heavy levies on the estates of people when they die."

NEW YORK—Mrs. Ailccn C.

LONDON—A receptionist at the; West London Air Terminal, where ground hostesses of the state- owned British European Airways have been ordered to shun eye shadow and nail polish because it makes them look "unwashed' 'Just because the airline has prehistoric ideas about beauty posed it in 1909 and Democrat Woodrow Wilson began to collect it in 1913. From 1909 to 1913. Congress submitted and the states ratified the 16th or income tax amendment to the Constitution. President Eisenhower is the eighth ia office to be confronted with the income tax riddle: How to distribute the tax burden fairly to all hands. A few lower brackets escaped taxation altogether when the levies first were applied back there in 1913. In that year, a married person with two dependents and a $5,000 net income paid $10. At $8,000 the bite was $40. rising to S60 on the 510.000 family: S26 on $25,000; S2.510 or. SIOO.OOO; S25,- 010 on S500.000. Times have changed. Wars and the welfare state boosted taxes over the years until the S5.000 family was paying $577. The $8,000 family paid $1,282. The bite on S10.000 became $1,744: S25,- 000, $7,004: on S100.000, $56,032; on S500.000. $411,224. These figures, however, do not represent the actual highs and lows of income taxation. The record over the years as compiled by the Internal Revenue Service shows income taxes generally rising sharply under Democratic administrations and declining under Republicans — not merely declining for rich folk, but .for the little fellows, too. The proportionate Republican cut for the little fellow sometimes was greaer than for the rich man. Hoover Reduced Levies For example: The family man with $5,000 net who paid Woodnw Wilson's Democratic treasury $10 back there in 1913 paid only $3 to Herbert Hoover's Republican tax collectors in 1929. The 1913 S40 tax on S8.000 had been reduced to S14. But the S100.000 a vcar familv which paid S2.510 in 1913 was hit for $14,816 on 1929 income. The $500,000 family paid $110,846. Upper bracket taxes zoomed in Wurld War I. The principle of more or less confiscatory taxes on the higher brackets had come to stay. That principle has been reaching down into lower brackets ever since. The Hoover administration's 1932 Revenue Act, a depression measure, started taxes upward again. It remained for another war, FDR, Harry S. Truman and the welfare state to show what really could be done in the field of individual income taxation. FDR's 1942 Revenue Act took S730 from the S5.000 family which once paid $10. The 1944 act hiked WASHINGTON—Sen. George D. Aiken iR-Vt.), cautioning against over-optimism about the possible results of a summer summit meeting: "Anyone who predicts that ajit to S755.
