The liappiest people in the World are the upright people.

ICASY GOING Tlierp'.s no question about it, the i;icnme tax filling: out business this :,-oar is kindergarfen stuff, compared I,) previou .s years—particularly com- jiitrodio la-st year when you had Hi bi; not only an accountant but a iiia.nician as well to make things rornc out. Till' cirain on the pocketbook is ;iill a I ' rate jolt 'although no yriaier than it should be for war .ii.'iiei. but the filling out of the iiiiin.s is .ulmo .st a pleasure. Even the "limK form" is a breeze com- paiRd to anything which has pre- I i.>i'dt-(l it. liuL hcje an: a few reminders wimli all' not amiss a .s January 15 apijrijache .s: 1. Kiiiiiicr .s iiiiLst file their dec- I.tiatiuiis (jf estimated tax for the ' all iidar year 1944 by January 15 U Uiey did not do .<ro December 15. .Since it was permitted to postpone The December 15 date until January 1."), ino .st farmers took advantage of the privilege and will be affected by I he latter date. 2. Otiier taxpayers who filed dec- lurations April and who have • Iji-eii making quarterly payments I liroukhuui the year have also been liiMiiiiHi 'tl to iM .sljjonc from Decem- bff if> III .hiimary 15 payment of liie linal quarter—along with a re- 'd declaration in case the first one undeie.stimated tax liability by more Hum 20 per cent.- li. Till' new act made it possible for all taxpayers to combine duties with the filing and payment upon their annual income tax returns. If an individual files Ills annual return and pays the tax due ujjun it by January 15, he need not file a declaration or amended derla rat lull or make a payment of e.siiiiiati'd fax for 1944 at that time. Tile .smart and the easy thing is for taxpayer .s whose figures are available to go ahead and make liieir final returns before January 15. It .saves making out at least one foiin and eliminates any pos- .sibiliiy of a penalty for undere.sti- Miate. KVERYBODY WRONG Price Administrator Chester Bowles wants a little help in his other capacity of Rationing Admin- istralor. He isn't .saying that an a'-:Hal crisis exists on the civilian food from, but in a letter sent to every iir \vs|)aiier editor in the coun- Mv he has frankly asked for sup- poM in putting over the idea that I'.iixl supiilie.s for next year will not 1)1' a.s bi!^ as anticipated and that I lie only way to get anything like an equal distribution Is through more rationing. Again ali the authorities have been proved wrong. First, the military authorities who thought the war would by now be over. Second, the food supply authorities who likewise thouglit the war would soon be over and therefore discontinued the building up of reserves thrt)ugh the summer harvest season for the leaner months ahead. Third, the distributors who also thought the war was going to end, feared that accumulated surpluses of any kind would knock the- bottom out of the market, and therefore exerted full pressure to let current supplies be consumed as fast as produced, without restraint. Fourth, the top drawer officials who also thought the war was going to end soon and so ordered the restraints taken off. • • You may have forgotten it, but last September 'War Mobilization Director James F. Byrnes ordered OPA to take 17. processed food items off the ration list, with a great tribute to the War Food Administration for having done such a marvelous production job. Blue ration tokens were made useless by this far-reaching order and the consuming public got the idea that a part of its wartime nuisance troubles were over for keeps. Of course there couldn't have been any political significance to this easing of rationing restrictions, two months before election. Nobody thought of that. .In full justice to everyone, it .should 'be made clear that not all the rationing curlxs were lowered or removed. The sugar lobby did its best to put over the idea that there were big siUT)luses being built up and that sugar rationing Tould l>e eased or would be eased ju-st before the election. But OPA .sat tight, relaxing only i on .sugar for home canning. « * * Point values on butter were increased in October. But with only about a third of the meat supplies rationed during the latter part of the year, supply got all out of kilter In three-fourths of the country and therefore has to be readjusted. So here you are again, right where you came In three years ago, with supplies of meat, sugar, butter and proce.ssed foods far below demand. And you have to be sold all over again on the idea that rationing does not take things away from people but is instead the only known way to make available supplies go around, giving everyone an equal share. Besides, you're eating too much. The figures show annual per capita consumption of 33 quarts more milk, 21 poimds more meat than in prewar years. The only reason the average citizen is eating 32 cans less store-bought processed foods, six pounds less butter, 16 poimds less sugar than In prewar years Ls that the supplies aren't there. Hence, more rationing and you might be thinking about adding another Victory Garden to your New Year's resolutions.

(AP)—The St. Louis board of aldermen was considering a health bill for restaurants and taverns, and the talk turned to lipstick on beer glasses. Alderman Harry A. Stoffer said he didn't mind a little lipstick on his glasses, and added that he didn't think a glass should be dipped into hot water before the beer is served because "beer isn't good that way." Health Commissioner Joseph P. bedeck differed, saying he didn't object to Upstick, but It showed the glasses weren't clean. "Anyway," he added, "it's the wrong way for a man to get lipstick on h*s lips." Java has more thunderstorms than any other country In the world.
