KEMPSTER WASHINGTON (UPP - Millions of Americans, many of them very poor, will discover by April 15 that they owe the government money because not enough -. taxes were withheld froiri -their paychecks. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) said that although a majority of all taxpayers will qualify for a refund this year as evegy year, some persons who normally expect to get money back will have to send a check along with their returns . this year. . ' • The problem is a fallout from the! Tax Reform Act ot 1969. As often seems the case in income tax matters, the. reasons for the ' problem are complex. But they all stem from the fact that withholding rates and actual tax rates start from different assumptions. There are about 25 brackets— ... ranging from 14 to 70 per cent of. | taxable income—on the government's income tax rate schedule. This determines the am'ount each taxpayer owes. • But"" there are only six brackets— ranging from 16 to 31 GllBSt Speaker-- larfy_Conrad, Secretary of State, addressed members and guests of the Democrat Party Saturday night at the Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner held at the Tipton 4-H and Community Building.

(Photo by Jini Heaton) Bayh Proposes Ghdnges In Military Justice Laws f Twin-engine Piper Aztec Makes Emergency Landing WASHINGTON (UPI) - Sen. Birch Bayh, D-Ind., said Sunday he will introduce a bill today proposing changes in military justice procedures which will include an elimination command influence. Bayh said the revisions of the military justice code will give greater procedural protections to defendants in military courts- martial. "The main objective of the bill is to eliminate completely the problem of command influence," Bayh said ik a speech written for Senate delivery today. ' "The bill would establish an independent courts-martial command composed of four divisions: defense, prosecution, ju­ dicial and administration. This command would be responsible only to the judge advocate general, thereby removing defense' and prosecution attorneys from the control "of the accused's, commanding officer," Bayh said. The bill would also enlarge the court of military appeals from three to nine judges. Under - the present code, the commanding officer is the key official in courts-martial. He convenes the court, appoints prosecutors and defense lawyers, has the power of initial review, may grant or deny release pending an appeal or conviction, and may suspend or reduce sentences. Bayh also said the command- Hillis Reporf. Drug Business Operates An Underground Economy WASHINGTON, D.C. — The drug business in the United States operates an underground economy that runs into the billions. A money making by-product of the illegal drug business is the growing number of people dealing in stolen goods. This problem was outlined by a team of doctors from Johns Hopkins Drug Abuse Center in Baltimore. The figures are astounding. . In Baltimore alone, the Johns Hopkins group reports that hard- drug dealers are doing $84 mill- Quarter MilerS-- Twenty-seven of the more than 30 members of the Quarter Milers Auto Club, Inc. of Tipton, Indiana pictured in the Recreation Room of the new Club House, 434 Sweetland Ave., Tipton.

The addicts to whom they sell steal $313 million dollars worth of goods which they peddle for about one-third of their retail value; Citing specific cases, the team of doctors reports that one addict averages $150anightby robbing pedestrians and another young. drug user stole equipment off of parked cars to support his $65 a day habit. Another user told the team of doctors that in a short period of time he had also stolen 50 leather coats, 50 television sets, 40 radios, a mink stole and hundreds of dollars in cash from private homes. The Johns Hopkins doctors warned that the war. against drug abuse cannot succeed unless the market for this illegal merchandise is dried up. President Nixon's Bill to crack down on drug traffic was passed last. October. It provides for increased programs of rehabilitation, educational projects to head off potential users and stepped-up enforcement by adding 300 agents to the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs. In a series of raids, Federal agents recently rounded up 56 of the Nation's top drug peddlers. More than $50 million worth of narcotics and $81,000 in cash were seized — testifying fb the size of the drug trade. The Nixon Administration has shown that it means business-in its war against; illegal drugs— but the Administration needs help from all Americans. The Nation must begin a drive to crack down on those, who purchase these stolen goods. The doctors' report reminds us that someone has to purchase this stolen merchandise. Without the buyer, there would be no profits—and no money for the user to buy his drugs. er's right to select jurors for the military trials "would be eliminated and a completely random system of selection would be substituted in its place.'' He said the requirement that two-thirds of the tribunal be officers would be abolished. The bill also would: — Eliminate double jeopardy in military trials and not.per-.- jnit a military trial of a defendant cleared of the same charge in a civilian; court, or vice versa. . 1 » —Empower, the supreme court to review all cases de-" cided by the courts of military appeal. - i . . j — Define the rights of both defense and prosecution to obtain information held by the other side. Youth Dead After Riddling Passing Autos By JOHN ENGSTROM GREENWATER, Wash. (UPI)—A 16-year-old boy who had "never been in any : trouble" was found 1 lying face down in.the snow, killed by one of two rifles he had used Sunday to . riddle passing automobiles. . "I can't see any reason for it," said William H. Egnew Sr., the father of the sniper and an inspector for the Seattle Fire Department "he was too good humored ... too stable." William Herbert Egnew Jr. perched in a ."foxhole-type" crevice atop a 100-foot cliff and began spraying .22 caliber rifle bullets at passing automobiles on U.S. 410. At least 18 vehicles were hit, including an ambu- . lance which had come to take ' away one of the four persons wounded. The unsuspecting' targets of the barrage said after they never heard a word from the youth, who only returned their shouted pleas to stop shooting with more bullets, «fWe were riding along just talking about things, teen-agers, drugs, things like that," said Mrs. Mary C. Pluewnarz, 31, Buckley, one of the victims. "Then I heard something hit the window ... and I saw a little hole in the glass. I felt something on my arm, like a blow. I-remember thinking that a rock hit the window. I put my hand on my "sleeve and there was blood." Mrs. Pluewnarz, like the others who were shot, was not seriously wounded. The bullet was removed at a hospital in Enumclaw, about 14 miles west of here. , "At first, I."thought my engine blew, up," said Jaques M. Lescan, 24, a ski instructor wounded in the foot by a bullet which pierced a vent window. The other two wounded by Tipton's City Police! Switchboard, fire department and a. Tipton airplane pilot were all standing by Saturday evening because of the uncertainty of an airplane's emergency landing in northern Tipton County and a possible major Western store . fire in West Elwood. The twin-engine Piper Aztec finally made an emergency land- . ing on the Robert Chase farm in Northern Tipton County. after 6 p.m.] Saturday during snow squalls and under fog shroudded skies. All three Wisconsin men in the plane were shaken both . physically and mentally, but none were injured. A happy ending of a harrowing airplane emergency experience was climaxed with the emergency landing in the muddy and snowy field and without injury and the trio trudged a half mile to the Chase farmhouse' to report the safe landing for < State Police to investigate. , The three men, P.J. Kaufman, 25, the pilpt, Ernest Stader, 35 and Alfred Bra..ksman, 46, were enroute from London, Ky. to Madison, Wis. when electrical power failure interrupted aerial navigation and personnel at Baer Field, Ft. Wayne observed on radar that the Piper was in trouble and had an Airforce T-33 diverted from regular flight to assist the disabled Piper into an emergency landing at Grissom AB, but shortage of fuel made the emer- . gency landing on the Chase farm necessary and the safe touchdown for the trio. Tom Tragesser, ; Tipton pilot, was on standby for possible aid to the stricken Piper, to use his'plane for search and assistance. Tipton Firemen ; Tipton firemen were on standby as was the Hobbs firemen concerning a Western store fire in TAJest Elwoodfrom Saturday evening into'the night. A barn used in the Hiatt Western Store business in West Elwood in Tipton- Cjounty was damaged more than $2000 Saturday.4 p.m. to 7 p.m. from a blaze caused by faulty electrical wiring. v ' •. ' AIL horses and most of the equipment was removed from the building and saved. Firemen from Madison Township, Pipe Creek Township and Elwood brought the blaze under control; Surrounding buildings were in jeopardy until'the firemen controlled, the situation. rooper Joines Investigates One Car Accident Indiana State Trooper, Richard Jjoines, investigated a one-car accident two mile east of Tipton Saturday at 2:45 p.m. According to his report Gerald Shockley, 57, Terre Haute, lost control of. the 1967 auto he was driving east on Road 28, veered off to the right side of the road- back across the road striking a hbad post before coming to a stop. Extensive damage was djone to the auto. Trooper Join- els reported that the driver apparently escaped injury from the niishap. The Tipton Sheriff's Department assisted in the investigation. per cent—on the withholding schedule which determines how much money actually will be deducted from paychecks. In addition, there is a difference in the income base for withholding and actual taxes. The final tax is applied against "taxable income"— earnings minus deductions and the $625 personal exemption for each, member of the family. Withholding rates are. applied against earnings minus exemptions although the rate structure is adjusted to account for the 10 per cent standard, deduction. All this, of course, has been the situation for years. The difference this year is the low income allowance which .Congress super-imposed on the tax system as part of the Tax Reform Act. The provision removes from . the tax rolls about 5 million poor people. Returns no longer are required for single persons with incomes under $1,700 or from married couples with incomes under $2,300 a year.
