The wave of opposition which greeted the propos al to levy a 20 per cent federal withholding tax again st income from dividends and interest was. it would seem, far greater in intensity and volume than the Administration expected. There is good reason why that should be so. The objections are unusually varied. For one thing, this in not a new tax, but a complicated and costly m-tbod of collecting taxes which in multitudes of cases art? not owed in the first place. The principal burden would fall on people in the lower income tax brackets, where the effective income tax rate is far below 20 in-.- cent. Obtaining refunds for overpayment is a time-consuming process. Meanwhile, the government would have taken long ahead of due date-funds which otherwise could have been deposited or invested, and brought income to their owners. Investment objectives established for the edu<ntion of children, retirement and other goals would thus he undermined. Great numbers of people many in the low brackets reinvest dividends and leave interest on savings deposits intact so that tiny will produce more interest. But, should the bill pass. 20 per cent of such income would be taken in ndvnn '-e. and these people would suffer accordingly. There, are ways-sound ways--to deal with tax evasion. The new electronie processing machines the Inte.n.d Revenue Service is installing constitute one. Another is a stepup in the Treasury's tax educational campaign. A third is for trie service to make better use of the huge rtsoums of information and manpower it now possesses. It is not necessary to )K 'n- alize the many U-eause e! the failure or dishonesty of the few. Green Vegetables And Shorts The people of the United States have had so many necessities, conveniences and luxuries made available to tbem by private enterprise that they take them for granted as they do air, light and water. They expect to find them wherever they go whether it be to a big city or a town in the desert-the same kind of razor blades, the same kind of coffee, the same kind J practically everything. Three forces have made such service possible: first, production in quantities to supply every part of the country; second, transportation methods that put the goods in every city, town and hamlet; third, a retailing system that makes the articles available to the buyers. The Principle Innovations in methods of retail operation naturally arouse consumer interest. Tlie most recent has been the discount house; not so long ago it was the swift expansion of the shopping center idea, particularly in the suburbs. Such developments may prove highly important and influential. But the dominant idea which underlies modern retailing is not new, and is hardly subject to basic change. The chains pioneered it, in the face of opposition, many years ago, and other kinds of merchants adapted it to their operations, skillfully and successfully. It can be expressed in a phrase: "It's better for all concerned to move a big volume of Nothing has done more to fit t a I'niform quality of customers throughout the nation, at reasonable prices, than has the chain store method of operation. It has made clothing, food and variety items, which only our city grandparents could purchase locally, available to virtually every farm boy and girl and man and woman. Green vegetables from the south and southwest reach the northern and eastern states in the de;id of winter. Bathing suits and shorts from the northern factor)- In-come available in the latest styles for southern vacationers in January. An so it goes with all products. The chain method of mass merchandising at minimum prices sees to it that the public is served as never liefore. Is Constant goods at a small profit on each sale than to move a small volume of goods at a big profit on each sale." The name for this concept is mass distribution, and every consumer finds it at work in all the major fields of retailing- foods, variety stores, department stores, drug and restaurant outlets, and the rest. Its value to the consumer can be measured, to use just one yardstick, in the small margins of profit earned by mass distributors on their dollar sales vol- flme. Thi$.may be as liUMTas a cent for, food chains, and not a great deal more for other*, kinds of stores. The mechanics of modern distribution may vary- the principle is constant.

Creek Bottom Comments 40 Years Ago — At the district Resolutions Corn mittee meeting at Fayette, Dale Nelson of IFBF "pointed out that it would be impossible for them to get the job done by themselves". Glen Taylor of IFBF" covered the issues to be formulated". And then, at another time and place, Harry Storey of IFBF said," it's up to you...it's your responsibility to develop your county's opinion- naire". That, in our opinion, was doing a real good job of giving the razzmatazz. As we see it, it's the "responsibility" of the oplnionnalre committee to ask the proper questions about the proper issues, after having been carefully "brain-washed"by the IFBF. Any F.B. member still clinging to the dear dead thought that the Farm Bureau is still a "grass-roots" organization, should pause to meditate the facts, and take a look at the signposts along the way. c-b-q At the State Republican Convention the temporary chairman's speech was either pathetic or ridiculous, we are not quite sure which. The gentlemen rambled on and on telling how he wasn't the right man for the job. Before he — By Reuben finished rambling, we had the feeling that a lot of bored delegates were sure in agreement with him, on that particular point. Senator Jack Miller was concise and articulate. He held the attention of even the restless delegates. On the other hand, it was our observation that Governor Erbe's speech fell on a mighty 'lot of unattentive ears. Many delegates. were reading something or nodding off to sleep. In contrast to this, the Governor is, in our opinion, a personable big, virile fellow, when you get to meet him personally.' We thought he did a charming job of taking interest in the Fayette junior delegates. But the bright and shining star in the Republican heavens this year is the attractive young Mrs. Somja Carlsen Egenes, candidate for Congresswoman of the Fifth District. If the gal is elected the old House of Representatives will take on some new life. We predict that many a Congressman will shave closer and get his pants pressed oftener. But more important, the lady has political knowledge to go with her Scandinavian charm. John McSweeny of near Randalia had two fingers on his left hand badly lacerated when caught in the pully of n hay fork. A county diagnostic health clinic will tie held in West Union at the Community hospital under the auspices of the County Medical Society and the Public Health Association.
