Foods Show here Mrs. Dorothy Ayers Loudon, acclaimed as America's foremost homecrafter, won a host of friends with her first two appearances at the show. And now she is returning for the third consecutive year to conduct another brilliant homecraft school in five great lessons, beginning Monday and continuing .through next Friday, February 28. Due Here Today Mrs. Loudon is scheduled to arrive here today and will devote the week-end to supervising final arrangements for the opening of the show Monday afternoon in the Shrine Auditorium. Attendance during the two previous years in which Mrs. Loudon has presided over the Better- Homes Show sessions have set new records and the popularity and prestige she has built up is expected to bring forth capacity audiences throughout next week. Mrs. Loudon is ranked at the top Of the list of the nation's home economics authorities. The bene fits of her years of experience and training in that field again are being offered to progressive homemakers of this locality, without cost or other obligation, through the Better-Homes Show, presented by U.

She will demonstrate new methods of combining both old and new food products. Further, she will show how to overcome food prejudices by gracing the table with new, tempting and appetizing dishes that the family cannot resist. Mrs. Loudon will discuss proper planning and balancing of meals and diets to insure the family eats all the foods that are necessary to proper diet. All this inspiration and more will be offered homemakers who take advantage of the opportunity to participate in a scientifically planned, course in advanced homemak- *ng next week. Mrs. Loudon each day •will demonstrate, step by step, from her model kitchen on the •tage of the big auditorium, the preparation of 10 or a dozen pleasing dishes, show- Ing how to cook better and more attractive meals with a minimum of expense, time and effort. While printed copies of recipes for the dishes she will demonstrate will be available daily for distribution among the entire audience, it •was suggested that those attending take with them pad and pencils to jot down notes on the many other valuable homemaking suggestions that the Better-Homes Show director will offer. Attention also was called to the fact that personal attendance at the homes show sessions is necessary to benefit from Mrs. London's instructions and demonstrations since none of her recipes will be published. The auditorium doors will open at 1:30 p. m. daily and between that hour and 2 p. m., when Mrs. Loudon takes the stage, musical and other entertainment, presented by artists from the Arizona Republic-Electrical Equipment Company station KTAR, will be continuously In progress. Scientific Club Sees 'Miracles' Miracles of science applied to everyday life were featured in color movies at a meeting of the Alembic Club, Phoenix Junior College chemistry group, yesterday morning. "A new World Through Chemistry" showed the processes used in making nylon, an artificial silk, neoprene, a synthetic rubber, and plastics used in lamps, toothbrushes, and numerous household articles. Norman Fenton, club president, announced that additional movies WASHINGTON, Feb. 20—(AP)—Back in Europe's feudal days, barons who poured enough honeyed words into the kingly ear were sometimes able to induce his majesty to instruct the royal tax collector to forget about the land taxes due on the baronial acres. The practice got to be a royal nuisance. So the kings' purse handlers put their courtly brains to work and cerebrated the sales tax. It worked pretty well on the barons. It is still doing pretty well and may do even better before congress goes home. This year, operating under various other names, that kind of a tax, plus taxes on the break-up of some of America's own baronial estates and a few other odds and ends, is bringing: the federal gcvernment ZM billion dollars. Next year the treasury expects an extra half billion from the same sources. Quite a lot of states, using the tax under its right name, manage to get many other millions from it. For the federal government, it works in the miscellaneous tax lield under the various names of nuisance tax, excise tax, tobacco tax, gasoline and liquor taxes. As used by the federal government, it is not a general sales tax but a levy, usually at the manufacturing source, upon selected articles which are deemed as luxuries or near-luxuries. It rarely operates on retailers as does the common variety of sales tax. Throughout the history of federal taxation, this kind of tax has been used as a producer of quick revenue. The first internal tax used in the United States was one on distilled spirits. Nowadays the liquor taxes turn up 5600,000,000 a year. Tobacco taxes supply about the same amount and are much easier to collect Enforcement Complicated The tax on liquor and beers is collected at the distilleries and breweries. On tobacco and most other manufactured goods, it is collected at the factories. When the tax strays into the retail field, as in the case of cabarets and ticket brokers, each dealer becomes a tax collection agent and enforcement is harder. Last June's tax bill lifted thei levies on many articles. It added lalf a cent to the one-cent gasoline tax, untaxed during the World War. It lifted the beer tax to the S6-a-barrel level of the World War. it put 6% cents on each package of cigarettes, half a cent more han then. It brought the tax on liquor to $3 a gallon, 80 cents above the World War level; that on playing cards to 11 cents, three cents above 1918. Even so, American excises, or sales taxes, whichever name be applied to them, still are far below those of the British. The British beer tax runs to four cents a pint; that In America is a shade more than two cents. The British tax on liquor is $3.90 a quart; America's is 75 cents. Britain's cigarette tax is 23 cents a package against 6l£ cents in this country. America has no tax on tea or coffee. Britain's favorite beverage is taxed 10 cents a pound, coffee pays a 2.8-cent duty. Many of the taxes used during The old chewing gum tax had a varied history. It supplied about 1932, the wavs and means com- 51,000,000 of revenue a year. In mittee was brushing off some of the old taxes, among them that on chewing gum. It had decided not to use the tax, however, when a bubble bug lobbyist insisted on being heard. He opposed the tax and demonstrated his bubble cum which was safe for children. A bursting bubble landed a blob of gum on the coat of a committee member. He said adjectives about lobbyists. "Yes, and they leave that stuff on chairs, too," said the member beside him. Before he stopped fuming, the committee had reopened the chewing gum section and nailed a two per cent tax to the sales price—a tax which stayed there six years. So small a thing as the practice by cigarette smokers of tearing a hole in the corners of their packages instead of ripping them wide open created a racket in New York and furnished the idea for an invention. When they tore the corners off they left the revenue stamp— which a notice on the package warns them to destroy — intact though sometimes frayed about the edges. The stamp, intended for destruction by the buyer of the cigarettes, bears no cancellation mark. In New York, a man set himself up in the business of reclaiming these undestroyed six- cent stamps and reselling them to bootleg cigarette manufacturers. He paid boys a penny each for the corner-torn packages, washed the stamps and sold them. The bureau had to hunt him up. Another man devised a method by which a single pull of a tab would rip through the ceWouIose wrapper in which most cigarettes are swathed, tear straight across the revenue stamp, ripping it in half, and lift two cigarettes out of the middle of the package. He is still looking for a manufacturer to use his device. Several of the taxes laid in the lands of the miscellaneous tax sec- Jon for enforcement are designed lor control rather than to produce revenue. The old red-stemmed matches, for instance. They came rom Japan. A tax drove them off he American market several years [go. There are other taxes of this •tind, such as those on oleomar- jarine and cocoanut oils, which were lodged on the tax books years ago and have stayed there. The federal estate tax, alto- gether a different type of tax, is enforced by the same unit that handles the raft of so-called nuisance taxes. Oddly enough, though the rates of the estate tax levy got the same 10 per cent raise as did the rest of the tax structure, the treasury expects to collect less /s/es Engineers Vacancies Exist A 'new enlistment quota of 10 men for the Third U. S. Engineers, Hawaiian department, was an| nouriced yesterday at district army recruiting headquarters here. Quotas of six for the field artillery and two for the infantry, Hawaiian department, are being filled. Three enlistments were accepted yesterday. They were Charles E. West, jr., Tucson, and Arthur R.

The 10 per cent raise lifts this levy to 77 per cent, minus whatever deductions are allowed for similar state taxes. But treasury estimates of revenue from that source were whittled down 513,000,000 for next year under those of last year because one estate divided among the federal and state governments and the s1 • year was so the World War rom the books. dirks, cigarette labits, insurance have vanished Candy, canqesr holders, riding premiums, soft drinks, chewing gum and a variety of others.

At one period under the .918 revenue law, they were plow- 'ng up as much as 558,000,000 of j revenue a year.
