Take the $2500 net income, for example, after deduction for wife and two depend- \ ents. This year the tax was only SI2. but next year it will be $75. Six-hundred and twenty-five per cent increase—whew: And watch the man with a S3000 net income, after the same deductions, get it in the neck. This year he pays. $58. but for 1942 he will pay S162 in 19-53. Or the fellow who can bos^i ci a $4000 '• net income—S154 this year, ba: So3<5 ne^t ' year. " ~ : Not many in Kossuth will have tc report $5000 net incomes, but the few who do'are l going to know it—and how: This year they get off with S271. but for 1942 they'll have to pay $540 in 1943—more than 10 per cent Talk of tithes for the church—the" government is really going to get them. One puzzler you may have noted. The fellow with a S2500 net income —the fellow least able to pay—gets socked 650 per cent but the percentage goes down rapidly the bigger the net income, down to only a fraction over 10 per cent for the fortunate $5000 guy. The why and wherefore of the discrimination just noted would take a congressman or The prices and averages are strongly suggestive of what every newspaper was reporting 20-odd years ago. At the Wilton Junction Angus sale the top cow brought $3075, and the second-high cow brought $2180. The top cow went to a Maryland buyer, the second-high to eastern Canada. Forty-two cows in the sale averaged $470, and nine bulls averaged $475. In the Oskaloosa sale the top bids—two of them—were $1000, and ' the average was $374. There were eastern buyers at this sale also. These prices certainly sound inflationary. You can turn to the 1919-1920 files of any knowledged, and find dozens of reports of such sales. However, these Wilton Junction and Oskaloosa sales are not yet typical for present sales. The common or garden variety of farmer holding purebred dairy cattle HODGEPODGE Webster-^A ttow el various la* • mixture. A THIRD FRONT, instead of the second front, may be in the, offing in the near future. The present front is the Russian-German battleline that stretches some 1500 miles across Russia. The second front will be opened by the British and Americans somewhere between Spain and Norway. The third front will be on the Pacific north of Japan. That's a trade, and strategic solution for the United Nations. If Russia gives the U. S. and Britain ah- bases in Siberia from which to bomb Japan and start a front there, then the U. S. and Britain will start a front in France or the Low Countries. It's the old squeeze play.

Timely Topics -*•*•-"- « v-uiigi coaiiirtii in the well known Philadelphia lawyer to elucidate, and this sheet will not undertake it. Meanwhile, if there is anyone in Kossuth with a net income of $10,000 this year, he may be interested to learn that his tax, payable in 1943, will be $1800, or $683 more than he has paid or is paying in 1942. They haven't boosted the state income yet, but look out below. When a state legislator sees a federal agency tapping a rich source of taxes he is pretty likely to get the idea and follow suit. In the meantime you can add the state tax to the foregoing figures according to that strange and peculiar state formula which taxes the first thousand at one per cent and rises in arithmetics progression up to five per cent on all ove $4000. ; Tom Purcell. of the Hampton Chronicle is I wondering whether Mr. Thornburg having 'S^ ee f °l P0lit '-?f by the late senatorial I primary election, will be generous enough to repeat a statement he once made, towit, that i Govrnor V ilson was one of the best friends , the Iowa farmer ever had.

D TO SHORES OF TRIPOLI- What this gorgeous picture lacks in plot is more than made up in soul-stirring scenes of the famed Marine Corps base at San Diego under a blue California sky. Perhaps, if I were air-minded, I'd refer to such-productions as Captains of the Clouds as ex- J amples of this "soul-stirrmg" emotion, but, being just a landlubber, I think To the Shores of Tripoli is the best war-propaganda picture to date. As I said before, the plot is of little consequence in comparison with the slick precision drilling of the United States Marines, the click of feet and rifles, the va«t stfetches of olive-drab, the striking navy white uniforms of officers on parade. It is a clarion call to arms, a note of confidence in our growing forces already making itself felt in all the Varied theaters of waf. The same had already been done many tinies in the air- branch of the service, but nothing like To the Shores of Tripoli had been done for the ground forces. Director Bruce Humberstotte directed his efforts particularly towards male tastes, not only by stressing the pictorial aspects of the drills at the Marine Base but by cidse-llp* shote ol two "lovelier' in the . perlons, o« Maureen O'Mata and Nancy Kelly; both of which make quite t lensful. John Payne and Randolph Scott beat the brunt of the male action, the former a spoiled, arrogant Culver graduate, the latter ft sergeant with heart of gold There is a lot of prattle about family honor, a secret understanding between Payne's father and Scott, the choice between serving with the active forces or a desk-job—all of which is quickly dissipated by a radio announcement (just as Payne and his fiancee are "getting awav from it ftll") that Pearl Harbor has been bombed! And that spurs the young man into immediate action. Curiously enough, while this is u ar-.« ra .
