GUY M. RQBSRSON, Mgr. Taxpayers Begin Treasury Men Get i Junior Police Drives By 1IAHMAN W. NICHOLS United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON. Jan. 14.--(U.R)-- It's getting close to T-Day and al- K-ady a flood of mail is making life difficult for the revenue people. Like from the lady down in Alabama. She wrote in to say she didn't care whether the government liked it or not, she was going to include Bill, aged 16. as a dependent. What of it, if Bill happened to be a mule? He was out there in the pasture too old to earn his salt and oats. Besides, the lady said, she had been 4 including Old Bill in her returns for four years and didn't intend to mend her ways. This letter was just tq dust off her conscience. She's about to get a letter from her Uncle, starting, out "We regret to inform you." Another gal from Alabama wrote in and asked for a form "to get my money." She explained that she didn't make $500 during the past year and understood she was entitled to a refund. There's a reply in the mail for her too--along with a lot of other folk who are having Jan. 15 tax day troubles. Check Too Small A fellow in California dropped the internal revenue boys a letter and said he was looking over his report and found he was ''owing $180." He said he was honest at heart and wanted to get straight with the government, all right, but he was darned if he was going to blab who he was. So he sent along a check--with his-name signed to it and the return, address on the envelope. Uncle fixed him. The check was too small. - A man from Oregon wanted to know if the bureau would be good enough to straighten things out with his wife. "Please write and tell her." he s.iid, "that 1 have not received a refund check for last year. All of her friends have got checks and i.hc thinks I'm the kind of a low character thnt got one and spent it." Turned out he did, too. A man in New Mexico said he wanted written permission to claim three fathers--his own. the father of his first wife and his present father-in-law. The government said no. Gets Bills Paid Up Some time back, a preacher out west predicted that the end of time would come thundering in the following Friday. A man in that district filled'out his return and sent the revenue department a check. He explained he was doing it ahead of time because he wanted to get his bills paid "so \Vc can all go to hell together." Another westerner wrote in to claim a new arrival in the family that he hadn't reported before and said it was a matter that had been overlooked and that it wouldn't happen again. One of the recent classics was a letter pertaining to "Harry and Eloise" in Florida. It was written by Harry, who was very stirred up. He told the department that he was happy \\hen he opened his mail and found a refund check for $42.61. But his happiness flipped to the other side when he saw that it also was made out to Eloise. Writes Where He Pleases For one thing, the check reminded him of "Eloise," something that was distasteful to him. For another, it had her name on it and that meant he couldn't cash it unless she signed it. He said he had told her where to go when they in Combatting Paper Shortage Tlu- waste paper drives by the- Harusburg Junior Police, which \ \ i l l be«in their quarterly schedule v.ith ;i collection throughout the c'tv Saturday. January 17, rcpre- cnt an important part in the nation's of furl to combat the shortage ot paper products, it was pointed out today by Kcldio Wise, chief of the organisation. "In addition to the revenues uhk-h will accrue to the Junior Police and their juvenile program througii the paper pick-ups, the organization's leadership and the boys are anxious to help Harrisburg do its part in the nation-wide effort to meet the critical need for paper products." Mr. Wise said. "According to government reports, approximately 58 per cent of die total fibrous material used in the manufacture of paperboard is comprised of waste paper," Wise continued. "Waste paper also accounts for 10 per cent of that used in making fine, sanitary and spec- ul industrial papers. 20 per cent of the materials used in making book paper, and 38 per cent of the material used in making building paper. "The high demand for roofing. pji'tecl and he was sure she wasn't there--\ct. Since he couldn't cash the check, \vould the government please turn it over to some worthy cause. The government did. A guy in Iowa listed as dependents -- one cow, two horses, 25 chickens. 10 pigs--and one sick wife. The bureau did something about that one, but it couldn't do much about the fellow who saw the warning "Don't write in this space" and wrote in it "I'll write where I darn well please." wallboard, packaging and other products made from waste paper requires the continued paper salvage efforts of all the American people. We feel that we are only helping do our part when we join our efforts with those of people in countless oilier communities who arc conducting paper drives. By so doing we help increase the supply of paper products available to all," Wise said. Prehistoric Kison Found SAN FRANCISCO U.!! -- Bones of a sevcn-foot-long animal, believed to have been a prehistoric bison, were discovered in the To- malei Bay area north of hcic by a Marine" Junior College geology field party. Stephen C. Bruff. leader of the party, said the bones were at least 25,000 years old, dating back to the pleistocene period.
