EDITORIAL- Hldden Taxes Easy to Pay, But They Add Up Week's Sewing Buy Printed There'll be few who will quarrel with the additional one cent federal gasoline tax which went into effect on Oct. 1st, for it will be used to finance badly needed highway construction. But it will be well for all to keep in mind the hike in the cost of gasoline is an added tax rather than a price boost benefiting the retailers, refineries or petroleum producers. And this brings to mind there are so very, very many so-called hidden taxes these days, all of which contribute substantially to excessive total costs of government. * The added tax penny for the federal government might not seem like much to the individual taxpayer. But it boosts the federal gas tax from 3 cents to 4 cents and that is an increase of 33% per cent. Percentage-wise that represents a substantial raise. The added cent will net Uncle Sam some $54] million a year in additional revenue. With the hike in federal gas tax, Jowans are now paying a total of 10 cents per gallon in taxes. This adds up to $1 in taxes on every 10-gallon purchase, or the equivalent of 46 per cent "sales tax" on gasoline. In other words, in every dollar residents of the Hawkeye State put out for gasoline, 46 cents will be for taxes. The Iowa tax, it should be noted, is not out of line at all, as it is exactly the same as the national average for state gas taxes, 6 cents per gallon. Motorists in 20 states, in fact pay total gasoline taxes exceeding 50 per cent of the actual average retail price of the Time* Herald, Carroll, la. Friday, October 9, 1959 gasoline itself. The national average of gas taxes is 47 per cent of the retail price per gallon. So Iowa is not out of line. In fairness to the oil industry, however, and for the benefit of anyone more than casually interested in total government costs, which are reflected in the overall tax bill, it should be kept in mind gasoline is one product on which the national average consumer price has advanced no more than six per cent over the past 10 years, although official indexes show that retail prices generally have gone up 21 per cent. The price of gasoline is a case directly in point in support of the contention a look should be taken at government costs by anyone seriously interested in curbing the inflationary trend. Motor fuel costs have increased but very little outside of the 55 per cent increase in average gas tax rates levied nationally since 1949. Such piece-meal or hidden taxes are perhaps the least difficult to pay, but they all add up and must be reckoned with in the total cost of living and the total tax bill. Thoughts He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. — Rev. 3:13. He was the word that spake it, He took the bread and break it; And what that word did make it, I do believe and take it. — Dr. John Donne. Cent-a-Gollon Gas Hike Helps Fuel Roads Program BY PETER EDSON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NEA) — Every motorist paying his penny-a- gallon more in gas taxes wants to know "why?" It's going for highway construction, but where and for how long? This added tax fs expected to raise about 500 million dollars. When the present authority to collect it expires on June 30, 1961, this money will be raised from other sources. One-half of the present 10 per cent federal excise tax on new automobiles and five-eighths of the present eight per cent tax on parts and accessories will be allocated to the highway trust funds. Those two taxes are expected to raise about 500 million dollars a year — same as the gas tax. President Eisenhower wanted this gas tax made 1.5 cents a gallon. That would have raised an estimated 750 million dollars. With that increase, it would have been possible for the federal government to allocate 2.2 billion from the trust fund to the states at this time. That was the amount scheduled for allocation this year by the original 1956 act. In 1958, when Congress was trying to stave off the recession, the amount was raissd to 2.5 billion dollars. This year, with the recession over, the amount was cut back to an even 2.0 billion. But since Virginia Democratic Sen. Harry Byrd's "pay-as-you- build" amendment to the highway act provides that no more money can be sppnt than is available in the trust fund, the amount has to be cut back to 1.8 billion dollars. U. S. Bureau of Public Roads is now in the process of allocating this amount. Public Roads officials say this 400-million-dollar cutback isn't as serious as many people thought it would be earlier this year, when Congress was against the gas tax. At the average rate of a million dollars a mile construction costs, it means that 400 fewer miles of highway will be contracted for this year than had been planned. At the same time Bureau of Public Roads allocates the 1.8 billion dollars from the trust fund for interstate highways, it will allocate to the states from direct Congressional appropriations another 875 million, net. This comes under the older, ABC program for primary, secondary and urban extension roads for fiscal 1960 and 1961. Ordinarily, Congress appropriates money for this program every two years. Next year it will have to make authorizations for 1962 and 1963, to let states plan ahead. This is the short-range problem in the highway program that Congress must face up to next year. The long-range problem is much more complex. Bureau of Public Roads is now working on a cost-allocation survey to determine what the future role of the federal government should be in highway construction. President Eisenhower also has his public works adviser Maj. Gen. John S. Bragdon, reviewing the program. And the House Public fodk.

Works Committee has a subcommittee under Rep. Charles A. Buckley (D-N. Y.) ready to make a complete investigation of the highway program. Hearings will start this fall. And there is no telling what the highway program will look like by the time Congress gets through revising it some more next year. The interstate highway construction program started out fairly simple in 1956. It was to be a 13- year program — completed within 16 years — to help the states build 40,000 miles of superhighways — later raised to 41,000. Three-fourths of this mileage was to be on new locations; one-fourth widened old locations. The original estimated cost of 41 billion dollars was to be paid for 90 per cent by federal government, 10 per cent by the states. To date, 7.4 billion of federal aid have been allocated. New allocations will bring the total to over 10 billion. But due to the increased cost of everythjng, it is now feared that the program may cost 10 billion dollars more than was originally planned. And if taxes to feed the trust fund are not increased, 20 years may be needed to complete it. So further gas and other automotive tax increases may be in sight for the years ahead.

There is but one exception to this fact. Here is tlje reason why borrowing costs for consumers are remaining stable: States have laws ruling on the rate a lender may charge a borrower. Despite the fact that money is tighter (that is, the demand for loans,is greater and the cost to banks of borrowing money themselves is higher), to date no state laws have been amended to permit any financial institution to pass these higher costs on to you. In recent years, big city banks have moved aggressively into the small loan business. They've built terrific volume in lending you money for automobile purchases, to improve your home, pay your bills. In order to get you as a customer they have charged bargain basement rates and because of the volume of their business have still been able to operate at a profit. It is only when you deal with these big banks that you will discover that a loan will cost more — 50 cents more per $100 per year. This increase will be only the third in more than 30 years that commercial banks have offered consumer loans. This bank rate still is relatively low. If you have borrowed from banks in smaller towns, where competition for your business is not so keen, you may already have paid $6 per $100 discounted, the legal limit. Have no fear, this rate is expected to remain unchanged. Tf you have subscribed to one of the many check credit plans now offered by commercial banks, you are generally paying the legal limit already for the money you borrow. The reason? Banks find it more costly to offer this kind of a loan than a straight personal loan. Here again, you'll see no change in rate. Finance companies are permitted to charge one and one-half per cent per month on the reducing balance of a loan up to $500 and one per cent per month on loans over $500. For the most part, this is what they have been charging and what they will continue to charge. On straight time payment loans, the permitted fee has been $10 per $100 up to the first $500 borrowed and $8 per $100 on loans over $500. No change is expected in these charges either in the immediate future for it takes months, even years sometimes, to amend laws. The thinking among credit men is that the current phase of tight money will loosen before any changes are enacted. The big differences that you may spot when you go to borrow in coming months may be these: The banks will be less eager to lend, especially if you seek longer- term loans. Companies and not individuals, however, will have the most difficulty — unless you are out to raise mortgage money. And the finance companies will court you with even greater eagerness. Since the money they lend you will cost them more, they will be anxious to build volume. Competition in their area of financing is growing daily, since more and more manufacturers are now getting into the act of financing the consumer sales of their products. THE DOCTOR SAYS * Why Ploy With Matches in a Dynamite Factory? HAROLD THOMAS HYMAN, M.D. Written for NEA Service A wife writes: "I've recently discovered that my husband, a diabetic, no longer bothers to sterilize his hypodermic syringe and needle or his skin before giving himself his daily shot of insulin. Why has he nor, infected himself? Isn't there danger in his continued refusal to take the precautions?" There are at least twd principal explanations for your husband's good fortune, dear lady. The first is dumb luck. The second is the enormous capacity the body has for defending itself against enemy attacks, in this case by bacteria introduced with the needle. Let me go into a little greater detail about both factors. The element of luck has to do with the type of bacteria your husband introduces with his shot of insulin. So long as these are relatively feeble opponents, your husband is in no greater danger than the majority of pedestrians who persistently cross streets against the red light. If traffic is light and oncoming cars are driven by careful drivers; the crossing is accomplished safely 999 times out of 1,000. If, however, your husband should have the bad luck to introduce a tetanus bacillus, as is done occasionally by drug addicts who never take sterile precautions, he might well lose his life. If he were to introduce a somewhat less deadly bug, like certain strains of streptococcus and staphylococcus, he might have a miserable time with a local abscess or an attack of erysipelas. Besides dumb luck, your husband is protected by the strength of body defenses. The power of these defense forces has been recognizec since the first century before Christ when Hippocrates spoke of nature's healing capacities (Vis mediatrix naturae). Each time you cut your finger your child skins his shin, an inseci bites you or your husband gives himself a shot with an unsterilized needle, countless numbers of bacteria are introduced into your body. Each time someone breathes, coughs or sneezes in your vicinity and each time you kiss someone or someone kisses you, you receive another carload of assorted bugs. As in the case of the careless pedestrian, 999 times out of 1,000, your body defenses let,you duck, weave or wiggle out of danger. But look out for that thousandth exposure. Don't let your husband be as slaphappy as the man who jumped out of a window on the tenth floor and was heard to say, as he passed the fifth floor, "So far, so good." (patent Don't Go Overboard in Admitting Your Mistakes By MRS. MURIEL LAWRENCE Dave had disobeyed again. He'd rolled the old barrel out of the garage and as usual left it spank in the middle of the driveway. Calling him, his mother said sharply, "How many times has Daddy told you to roll that barrel back into the garage when you've finished playing with it? Hurry up. Get it back before Daddy drives in and . . ." "I wasn't playing with it!" Dave interrupted indignantly. "I've been working on my old alarm clock all afternoon! I'm not gon- na . . ." "Don't give me that!" his mother retorted. "Just do what you're told and get that barrel out of the way before Daddy gets home." But when Dave went to do as he'd been told, he discovered the evidence he needed to prove his mother's judgment mistaken. In the barrel he found his little sister and a guest cozily sipping cokes together and so pleased, with the general situation that they readily admitted to rolling the barrel out of the garage themselves. Immediately his mother apologized for her mistake. A modern parent, she went on apologizing for it, pursuing her outraged son back to the sun porch to say, "Parents make mistakes, too, dear. You must never forget that. Mommy will always say she's sorry when she has made one. Just like children, parents aren't always right either. They . . ." Irritated instead of touched by this information, Dave yelled, "For gosh sake, do you have to be so darn proud of it?" and grabbing his box of alarm clock innards, fled upstairs to his room. His question rates our consideration. Today it's very easy to fall into the habit of excessive apology to children. Thanks to psychology, we no longer have to pretend that we are archangels to youngsters. It's a terrific relief. It's so comfy to be off the old hook that obliged us to be always right that we now tend to be too proud of being wrong. Actually, all Dave needed was a brief, "I'm sorry I misjudged you." His mother's mistake was a natural one. It just hadn't occurred to her that the combined muscles of Patty and her guest could roll the old bar rel out of the garage. It's fine to know when we make mistakes. However, we do not make them out of moral wickedness but out of insufficient knowledge. No human being possesses any other kind, So when we expose ours to Dave, we don't have to carry on about it all afternoon. MAKE FRIENDS If you are meeting a number of persons, one right after the other, try to vary your greeting. Fence Painter's Complaint: lore//, It's Almighty Boring' By JULES t-Ort LEXINGTON, Ky. (API —Ever icard of the Kentucky Bluegrass? Of course. Ever heard of the rolling thoroughbred horse farms? Certainly. Ever heard of the miles and miles of glistening white fences which line the farms? Naturally. Ever heard a single word about the fellow who paints the fences? No sir. Not a word. Dewey Kirby, here's your chance: "I'm 61 now and I been painting Fences since I was 18. I hate painting fences. "I start out of a morning and that paint bucket weighs six pounds. At quitting time it weighs 50. "Painting fences is the most almighty boring job there is. "I reckon I've painted. . .lordy, lordy. . . .1 reckon close on a thousand mile of fences. "I try to keep my mind off what t'm doing — commence to figuring how I can get off work to go fishing, mainly. 'Why, I don't even look at the fence I'm painting. "I know my stroke, I know my! brush and T know where my paint j bucket is. I can look at the sky the whole time and not miss a lick. 'It's the last stroke that counts. "I get enough paint on the board, j then jam my brush plurn up against the batt and give a good swipe all the way down the board. "The batt Is the board that runs up and down. A post is set every eight feet. The fence rails are 16 feet long, and the batts are nailed to the rails opposite every post. Makes it look nice. "All the fences in these parts —on the horse farms— are four- rail fences. The space between the top and second rail is nine inches; between the second and third seven inches, and between the third and bottom six inches. "It takes a,gallon of paint to each panel. Every 16 feet of fence is a panel. "One time me and Lucien Bradshaw wanted to go fishing if I got through early enough. I painted 40 panel and got through by half past two. That's going some. "I'd far rather build fences than paint them. Time seems fo go faster. It's slower work, but. it goes faster. "I can build a mighty straight fence. "I just line if. up by eye — keep walking backwards and setting posts. I know where to start and where to wind up, and I won't miss it four inches one end of the fence to the other." Lucien Bradshaw, the grounds foreman at Calumet F"arm where Kirby was working, explained the puzzling variation in the spacing between the fence rails. The bottom space is narrow sft horses can't get their heads through to eat grass (greener, obviously, on the other side), and get stuck. Bradshaw also observed Calumet Farm has 23 miles of fences, that it costs $8.40 per panel to build and paint them with the heavy ferine paint, and that the fences are painted every three years. "I've painted every mile of them," says Dewey Kirby. "Lordy, how I hate to paint fences."
