Mrs. Richard Moore reported $28.61 cleared at the recent ice cream social and extra pies and Track Sale IsOK'dby Judge Igoe CHICAGO (AP)-The contested bankruptcy sale of Aurora Downs race track has been taken under •advisement in federal court. Judge Michael L. Igoe of U.S. District Court heard arguments Wednesday that he approve the sale because a purchase agreement by Chicago industrialist Titus Haffa expired May 30. A plan for liquidation of the track's assets—calling for sale of the track to Haffa for $1.2 million —was approved last month by F. Donald Delaney, a Joliet bankruptcy referee. Several unsecured creditors, however, said they would receive a settlement of only 5 cents on the- dollar, and objected to the sale. In court Wednesday, an attorney for Sportservice, Inc., refreshment concessionaires, one of the creditors, argued that the industrialist would in effect get the track for $350,000. The attorney, Edward Kelly, said two building sites on the 121- acre grounds are worth $850,000. One site is suitable for a shopping center, he said, because of a 23- acre frontage along Illinois 31. Wayland Cedarquist, attorney for the present owner of the track—Northern Illinois Development Corp.—said he feared that Haffa might exercise an option to withdraw his offer and urged Judge Igoe to approve the sale. Cedarquist indicated that an earlier offer for the property was lost because of extended litigation. READ THE WANT ADS! cake taken to the Mary Davis Home.

Millions See Red When Tax Bills Arrive NEW YORK (AP)-If you see red when you think how much the tax collectors get from your pay, take consolation. Millions of other persons around the' world share your feelings. An Associated Press survey showed that in four of six world centers, families of modest incomes pay 13 to 20 per cent of their incomes in taxes. In the higher pay brackets, the tax percentages range from 45 to 77 per cent. . An imaginary bus driver and a $l00,000 -a-year-man were selected in each location, each with a wife and two children. Because of the complexity of various tax structures, estimates had to be used on a number of points. An average bus driver in New York earns $5,824, more than double the pay of drivers in other cities. But he pays $568 in federal income tax and $603 in other taxes, totaling 20 per cent of his pay.

Buses will run and students will report Tuesday morning. They will be dismissed at noon. School will be in session all day Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, Aug. 28, 29 and 30. The lunch program starts YATES CITY - St. Peter's Church in Aurora was the scene of the wedding Saturday morning of Miss Sharron Kaye Hambrock and Gerald W. Bantz, son of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Bantz, 775 N. Elmwood Drive, Aurora, former residents of Yates City. The bride is the granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Sebastian of Aurora. Rev. Sylvester J. Eye, pastor of Our Lady of Good Counsel Church, officiated at the ceremony and celebrated the nuptial mass. Miss Barbara Guzauskas was the organist and the mass was sung by the children's choir with Victor Bacidori as soloist. The bride was escorted to the altar by her grandfather. She wore a gown of French lace, taffeta and nylon tulle with a fitted bodice. The full skirt of self-scalloped French lace extended over tiers of nylon ruffles and ended in a chapel train. Her shoulder length veil of silk illusion was held by a crown of pearls. She carried a crescent of Amazon lilies and snowdrift over her missal and rosary. Miss Norma Valek, maid of honor, wore a sheath of coral silk organza and taffeta. Her headpiece was a coral pHlbox edged in pearls and a coral blush veil. Miss Martha Smith and Miss 'Cheryl Smith, bridesmaids, had gowns and headpieces like those Frankfurt, on an income of $2,460, hands over 17 per cent—income tax of $120 and other taxes of $297. The London bus driver has 14 per cent taken out of his. $2,080 wage. His income tax is only $5.35. But other taxes total $289. In Paris, the bus driver's wage comes to $1,872, but under the country's regulations he also gets a family allowance of $348 from his employer. The wage figure exempts the man from income taxes. His indirect taxes amount to $290 or 13 per cent. Of $1,547 in pay, the Tokyo bus driver pays 8 per cent in taxes— $59 for income tax and $64 for others. And in Rio de Janeiro, the driver makes $1,270, but his tax bill is the lowest of all— 6 per cent. His income tax is $10 and other taxes amount to $70. The comparison in taxes for the $100,000 -a-year men moves Rio de Janeiro from the lowest spot to one of the highest. More than 65 per cent of the Rio man's earnings go to the tax collector. His federal income tax alone comes to 65 per cent. An approximate figure for his other taxes could not be determined. In the United States, personal income of workers totaled $440 billion last year. They paid out $128 billion in various taxes. The Tax Foundation, a nonprofit organization, estimates that U.S. federal taxes in 1962 amounted to $549 per person, compared with $1.92 in 1800. of the maid of honor. Gail Collen Haring, sister of the bride, was junior bridesmaid and wore a short dress of white silk organza with pleated cummerbund. Her headpiece was a miniature of those of the attendants.
