Shortly after their car I.ulls out of the driveway, I hear u crash. 1 dash from the house. There's a commotion down the load. A car has gone over the cliff. The police arrive, climb down into the canyon, finally come up bearing a woman's body. It is Avis Vaughn--dead! - I think I Xill would have done something foolish like fainting if Jimmy Peters hadn't given me something more urgent to do. It was a funny choked sort of sound that made me look over my shoulder and there was Jimmy. LJtter horror had wiped all youth- 'ulness from his face. He stumbled ike a drunken man as he lurched forward and tried to get through the ring of men who were carrying Avis. They laid her down on the side of the road, and one of the policemen ran to the cruiser and brought back a gray blanket and put it over her. ' There's another one down there --but we can't get him out," one of the men said. "He's dead, too." Jimmy Peters quit trying to reach Avis. He staggere'd over and held onto the broken guard railing. He was deathly white. 1 went over lo him quickly. "Jimmy --Jimmy. Take it easy, boy. Here, sii down." I made him sit down on the guard rail. I rubbed his icy hands. He grew a little less limp. "Here. Jimmy," I said. "Put jour arm around my shoulder-let's go up to my house. There's nothing we can do here." 1 led notic We Invite Lloyd L urniture Store Lloyd L Parker's Furniture Store i\ F -. ·· Pay For Lloyd L.

In the living room I made him lie down on the davenport and went over to the bar to get him a drink. There wasn't a thing left. Liz Lcydcn had used up everything in mixing our drinks. So "i went down to the kitchen and made some strong coffee. Jimmy was still lying there looking very sick and wretched when I came back. He drank the coffee 1 had fixed for him, looked at me with dumb misery shining in his eyes, and then after a little he began to cry. in the tortured way that a man cries. 1 just let him cry, sitting there beside him with my hand on his shoulder, patting it occasionally. And wanting desperately to comfort him--to tell him that she wasn't worth it. But, of course, I didn't. Because I knew he wasn't in love with the real Avis Vaughn--the Avis witn the soft, beautitul body and tne morals of a cat. He "was in love with what he thought she was. \S"ith the image of her he had built up in his heart. And there wasn't anything I could do about that. After a while Jie quit sobbing. He wiped his eyes \yith a damp handkerchief, blew his nose, and mumbled something about me being very decent. i patted his shoulder again. 'That's all right, Jimmy." 1 remembered something else. "I should call Jeff--shouldn't I?" "Yes," Jimmy said. "You'd better." I dialed the phone with \stiff. cold hands. It rang and rang and rang. I had almost decided he .^wasn't there when he answered. | His voice sounded thick and heavy with sleep. "Jeff--this is Holly. Something terrible has happened. Avis ana Art are dead. Their car went over the canyon wall just below my !house here." There was a long pause as if he didn't understand, and then he said clearly--"Oh my God!'-, That was all for a minute. 'Finally he added, "I'll--I'll come over to your place." I said "All right" and hung up and went back and sat down by Jimmy again on the couch. I said miserably, "They \vere here, Jimmv--all evening.

He seemed a little sur- I prised to find Jimmy Peters thcic J i n my living room, but accepted j my story that" we had both ocen , drawn to the scene 01 the accident by the sound of the crash and that we had come back here to talk it over. We told Jeh all knew about the accident, which WASHINGTON -- (*NEA)-- President Truman's "Ten-Year Plan" as outlined in his State of the Union message offers a challenge to dope out how much of it he is likely to get from the present Congress. The easy answer is, ' Not much." It's a quaint old American tradition, however, to have the President ask for the moon. Congress applailds politely, then forgets it all and does as it pleases. This year will be no exception. There is really only one new idea in the President's message. This h his pioposcd tax reform program. He would cut income, taxes by only $40 a head--$200 foi a lamily of five--regardless of income. That isn't enough to satisfy Congress. But is is not without its appeal to low-income groups. It would free between eight and nine million taxpayers in the lowest income brackets from paying any federal taxes at all. Hut it would give the remaining 36 million taxpayers little relict. Tlie higher the tax these upper-income people have been paying, the more they may be expected to yell because -- percentagewise -- the.v would be getting tne least reduction. * $ The way the President's plan would work out is this: A single person with gross income of $800 a year or less would have to pay no taxes. A single peison with gross income of $1025 would have his $78 taxes cut practically in half. For higher orac- kets, the cut would be only regardless of income. A married person with no dependents and gross income of $1600 a year or less would have to pay PO taxes. If the income were $2050, the present $158 tax would be cut in hah. For higher brackets the cut would be $80, regardless ot income. A married person with two children and gross income of $J^uOi or less would have to pay no taxes. If the income were S4i50 the S325 tax would be cut in half, for higher Brackets the cut would be $loO, regardless 01 income. AVnile these cuts don't sound like much, they would mean a less ot $d,200,00u,000 to the '.treasury. Since the President doesn't want government revenues reuuc- ecu he proposes making up tms sum by increasing ,, corporation taxes. Ihis is in the nature of a patchwork tax revision, which Ireasury lax experts have been opposing all along. They want real, long- range reform on the whole tax structure. But u the President's idea were earned out, 3 good constructive job might be uone by revising tne schedules for smah business.

This is obviously a jerry-built, arrangement which needs tixing. j At tne moment Treasury expert* do not know what they will recommend tp Congress. There is no plan. But one suggestion has been 10 lower the tax in the notch s u j that incomes from $25.000 to bio.-j 000 would pay 25 per cent ami; incomes from $35.000 to SoO.UUu, would pay 35 per cent instead of 53 per cent. If tms reform were made, it' would probably not lose the 'Ircas-' ury a great amount ol revenue, since corporations have tried to slay out of the notch bracket. But since the President suggests* cutting individual income taxes by $0,200.000.000, H will probably mean a proposal to raise the cor-] poration rates on incomes over 55Q,000 a year above the present io per cent.
