By GORDON WASHINGTON (AP) - Lots of people—kindly people, sympathet ic people, rich and poor, young and old, high and low — have helped Sgt. Alvtn York solve his federal income tax problem. Letters by the thousands have poured in from people wanting to contribute to ihe 135,000 fund needed to wtpe out the World War I hero's tax debt. The goal now has been reached and hundreds ot letters are yet to be opened. This national outpouring of good will to a man who served his country well has touched Capitol Hill where much of the mail these days is of the pressure or "gim- mle" type. "These people are giving—not asking." said Rep. Joe L. Evins, VPem., treasurer for the York Tax Fund Campaign. Speaker Sam Rayburn, D-Te.x., touched off he drive two weeks ago with a 1,000 donation. Few Big Donation* There have been a few other big donations since then. But for every one of these there have >een hundreds of $1 and $2 donations. Some sent pennies. Who contributed? Here are some samples: j From Denver: "Dear Sirs — I jam enclosing only $1 to the Sgt. York fund. I am 81 and don't have much so excuse the small sum. Very sincerely. An old woman." From Bobby Lamie, Kankakee. 111.: "Dear Sergeant York—I am 9 years old and I help my brother with his paper refute. My big sister said that you need help. I hope 'this 25 cents will help you." L. P.
