GERMANS FACE HEAVYTAXES Ever City In Reich Compelled To Help Pay For Huge War Expenses BERLIN, Sept. 16.—Every German city and commune, in addition to the individual German citizens, must pay the costs of the 1939 war, according to figures disclosed last night by two economic statistical services. Gemeninde Und Wirtschaft, correspondence service for municipal matters, estimated 1,250,000,000 marks—about $500,000,000—must ba contributed each year of the war by the cities and communes out of their receipts from taxation. Each month, the figures showed, the cities and communes must divert two and a half percent of receipts from taxes on agriculture and forestry undertakings, five percent on real estate, seven and a half percent on business and ten percent of the tax on citizens. While it was admitted such estimates could not be exact, Gem- sinde Und Wirtschaft said it believed, "its figures conservative" ind distributed as follows: The tax on business and trade of ill' kinds to yield $700,000,000 narks annually for the special war sliest; the citizens' tax 130.000,000; real estate, 420,000,000; agriculture ind forestry, 110,000,000. That would total 1,360,000,000 marks. The service said the taxes vere "absolutely certain" to pro- luce at least 1,250,000 marke (the nomninal value of the mark is 40 cents). Cities and communes would not be permitted to "unload" this special war contribution payment onto indivual taxpayes by increass- ed economy—paring down the communal expenses. That does not mean, however, that the citizen must not pay. He must reach deep into his pocket to hand over his share through six main channels, some affecting the individual directly, other indirectly. The Reich expects to add to the war chest by: 1—A special war surtax on incomes, amounting to 50 percent of the regular income tax. 2—A 20 percent special war tax on the retail price of beer and tobacco. 3—A war tax on champagne of one mark a bottle. 4—A tax of 100 marks ($40) for each 100 liters of cordial and liqueres. 5—Cutting federal administrative costs 50 percent. 6—Lowering wages and prices, thus further cutting public expenditures so the difference would be availlabl© for war needs. Presseclienst Ftier Wirtschatt- saufban, another economic service, quoted secretary Fritz Reinhardt of the finance minister as saying "the financing of the war is assured.

STORE New York, Sept. 15.—Rachel McQuiston Kelly is our idea of a "typical New Yorker/' She also is our Idea of a Woman Executive. And, the most amazing woman we have ever met! Most people know her as the manager of women's banking. Chase National Bank. Her clients —from all walks of life, especially from the successful walks—come to her for aid whether it is dealing with marital difficulties, burials, or finance. But some know her as we do: as the "patron saint of hospital social service." (It's our title for her and we stick by it. The other day. RMcQK took us on a tour of Welfare Island. To see Welfare Hospital, the island's newest, of course. We DID the immaculate kitchens. Visited the internes' quarters: neat, comfortable and enviably restful.. Sat on the spacious roof where we enjoyed cigarettes and the New York skyline. It was quiet up there. Quiet, though practically overhead was the roar and rumble of buses, cars, subways and street cars that steadily cross the Queensboro Bridge. We liked seeing this new structure serving humanity where before it stood the disreputable prison that was the cause of one of this city's worst exposes of prison management. We liked the idea so much that the indefatigable Mrs. Kelly decided to take us further down towards the lower tip of the island where stood City Hospital, one of New York's oldest and decidedly her "pet." And one glance told us the reason why. For City Hospital may not be a monument to carbuncles, but it has charm and activity that astonishes the "first"' visitor. We took its aged facade to be the exterior of a university: well planned, walled, housed. Even the alertness of "my boys'"—as she calls the staff—added to the charm and quietude of the place. Unusual in itself, this quietude of the tides beating against the rocky mount that IS Welfare Island. For in New York one sees little of the so- called hospital for rest- They are either situated in the busiest of thoroughfares, under "Els" and above the street, or look to the layman as an apartment house. In fact, there is very little to distinguish New York's many hospitals from apartment houses. A fact that that belittles the city's planning "fathers," not the institution itself. So a salvo to the Pittsburgh-born mother of two grown sons and hostess to hospitals, famous personages, and the uninitiated transient. Her care of all three, with especial mention to City and Welfare hospi- tasl has never been overrated. * » * FAIR FACTS: Almost daily one hears of this and that foreign pavilion cutting down on its personnel that they may be free to join the ever Increasing ranks of marching men. The latest is the French. Pavilion. And to make it possible for the countless thousands that would sorely miss their exhibit, they've limited the hours the pavilion will be open to the public. However, we have always believed that no one actually visits the Fair the moment it opens, so by the time you and me get around to journeying out to Flushing Meadows, one will find what they want to see will still be on display. . . .

PRISON TERMS ARE IMPOSED Five In Louisiana Scandal Sentenced Up To Thirty Months. NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 16 (£>).— Federal prison sentences up to 30 months were imposed Friday on five prominent Louisianans convicted of using the mails to defraud Louisiana State University of $75,000. Concurrent sentences of 30 months and fines of $1,000 on each of two fraud counts were meted to Seymour Weiss, dapper New Orleans hotel man and key figure in the late Huey Long's political machine; Dr. James Monroe Smith, whose resignation as president of the state university precipitated widespread investigation of Louisiana politics, and Monte Hart, wealthy Louisiana contractor. Louis C. Lesage, former Standard Oil official, and J. Emory Adams, nephew of Dr. Smith by marriage, were fined $500 and given concurrent sentences of a year and a day on each of two counts. All promptly filed notices of appeal from the convictions, voted by a Federal Court jury last night in the government's first major court test in its drive against corruption in Louisiana public affairs. Dr. Smith, however, elected to begin his prison term at once since his bond on dozens of other charges has been set so high he has been unable to post it. The five were convicted of using the mails in a deal in which the university paid for furnishings of the Bienville Hotel although these furnishings allegedly had been included in the school's earlier purchase of the building.

As the title so aptly indicates "The Angels Wash Their Faces,' the Warner Bros; picture "which opened yesterday at the Academy Theatre, presents the six "Dead End" Kids in the somewhat un famaliar guise of law-abiding citizens,' but let no one conclude from this that they're gowe sissy for in this film they're still rough tough and aggressive. . . Ann Sheridan heads the adult contingent of players which also includes Ronald Reagan, Henry O'Neill, Eduardo Cinnelli and Be'r- ton Churchill, and in addition to the Dead Euders, the juvenile contingent includes such accomplished youngsters as Frankie Thomas, Bonita Granville and Jack Searl. The picture is such exciting and engrossing entertainment and it moves so fast that one cannot reflect during its unfoldment whether, as a news event, it is more interesting because of the new character of the Dead Enders or the fact that it gives Miss Sheridan, that girl with the "oomph." her first altogther sympathetic role since she was raised to stardom. 'BOYS' REFORMATORY" SHOWING TODAY AT HENRY'S THEATRE Frankie Darro, talented juvenile actor who has appeared in several important screen roles with the "Dead End" kids and the "Little Tough Guys," has a strong characterization in the new Monogram picture, "Boys' Reformatory," showing today at Henry's Theatre. A story of the "little big house." "Boys' Reformatory" casts Frankie as a youth of the slums whose environment sends him to the House of Correction. Bitter toward humanity, he is finally remade by a reformatory doctor-who encourages the lad toward greater ideals. "Boys' Reformatory" is crammed with action, suspence and mystery and will be a thrilling entertainment for those who like fast-moving films. The closing chapter of the popular serial drama, "Mandrake, the Magician" is also on the program. Sunday midnight, TJniversal's brilliant new Pasternak production, "The Under-Pup," which introduces the 11-year-old sensation, Gloria Jean, and features at the top of a great cast the lovers of "Three Smart Girls Grow Up"—Robert Cummings and Kan Grey—is opening at Henry's Theatre.

But even these simple things are denied them, because the boy is a fugitive from justice, for a murder, which he didn't commit. Even when the boy, through his heroism, aids in the capture of a band of notorious bank robbers, the shadow of the law hangs over him.

The neutrality stand proclaimed Thursday by Secretary of State Cordell HuH, Asahi .commented in an editorial, actually is a "unilateral warning to Germany to respect the right of the American people to aid GreaV Britain and France." Germany, said Asahi, will attempt to avoid drawing the United States into war by "Irri-" tating them to no useful end,"" but "is not likely to subm'it meekly to such treatment from the United States." . • ; The United States "seeks to' continue to increase her trade- with belligerents in order to'' bring war prosperity by the sale* of rrunitions," said the paper,'; but added that President Roosevelt had made it clear .this-did : ' not mean trade with Germany.
