JEIGHT--THE MORNING AVALANCHE Iff easury Officials Looking Forward To Record- larch 16 Will v ~ Be The Deadline JSiol 4343 For Tfo Avafanctie-Jourhai Offlm ! fe- i. (By The Associated Press) i- . WASHINGTON, Feb. 26.—the .Treasury today looked forward to i a record-breaking $2,^.10,000,000 cash collection of income taxes vne?;t month. I The sum, more than double the i collections of any previous single ) month in American history, was so 1 large that officials mapped pre: cautions against any upset to the ; nation's business arising from tha | -concerted withdrawal of so much v money from circulation. Extra Day Allowed * Most cf this money will be turn! ed over to the treasury on one ..day, in fact—March 16, the last •"day for filing annual income tax ' returns. If usual proportions hold j true, about half of the sum will t come from corporations and about f half from individuals. The crest ' of the wave comes a day late this < year, because the. regular filing • date—March 15—falls on a Sun• day, giving taxpayers an extra 24 hours. > The income tax to be paid next \ month will be the first under the , drastic revision authorized by ; Congress last fall. Due to boosted ; tax rates and slashed personal ex- I emptions, the income tax will for - the first time fall on millions of ' small wage earners. ncome Brief Bits Of Local News ; City To Buy Bonds i (Continued From Page One) -, , i ing that the board of First Fed« eral Savings and Loan association .'has authorized the investment of r $37,000 of the reserve funds of - ihst value bonds. in $?0,00 n The official an; nouocement of the purchase is to t be made Monday night during the ? progress of the weekly "Keep 'Em 'Buying" program sponsored by '; KFYO in Senior High school audi- •>: torium. ; The city has made two invest; ments of $37,000 each in defense i bonds, obtaining securities with * maturity values totaling $50,000 - t each 'time.

AUSTIN, Feb. 26.—A concise bluntly worded report, a Texas fatate HOUEI; of Representatives commit'.ee today recommended the immediate discharge of Dean John n. Spies and certain faculty members at the University of Texps Medical branch in Galveston. The five-man group, authorized by the House to investigate subversive activities, declared it found no un-Americanism at the school except "failure to devote full efforts to the training and production of doctors." The institution has long been racked by internal controversy, a condir which brought about the committee investigation which ended _ yesterday with testimony by University President Homer P. Rainey advising drastic action to cure dissension in the medical branch. "Grossly "Negligent" From a 1,000-page transcript of testimony by the dean, faculty and students the investigators formed these additional opinions: The university regents, past and present, had been "grossly negligent" in permitting the school to become involved in administrative confusion and dissension. The president of the university should be given full power over and responsibility for the Medical branch and should be directed by the regents to build it into a first class institution. The investigators made no reference to m o v i n g the Medical branch from Galveston to Austin, seat of the main university, a pro- rinsal Tjr. Rainpy hart aprppri would be helpful in improving the situa tion. Their report will be submittec to the board of regents \vhicl meets here Saturday. No Comment By Rainey Meanwhile Dr. Spies, in Austir to attend the regents meet, am Dr. Rainey declined to commen on the recommendations.' Without naming names the- com mittee said some faculty member as well as Dean Spies should b dismissed. It was their idea tha Dr. Rainey should determine wh should be fired. "They are obstructing the ad yancement of medical instructor in this state by preventing the cf ficient training of doctors dur ing the present emergency," tin report said o.f the unnamed teach ers. Dr. Rainey had testified the chief issue in the controversy wa whether the medical school shoulc be administered by the univer sity's governing board for the hen efit of all Texans or by a group o Galveston doctors as a local in stitution. Spanking Preferred To Life Of A Hermit HEMPSTEAD, N. Y., Feb. 26 (&) — Evert spankings sr* better than the lonely life of a hermit. 13-year-old Margaret Hunnicut decided today. Two chilly days and two miserable nights spent in « toplshed on the Meadowbrook Country ciub groundr were enough, to disillusion Margaret who had fled her tf.it- chel gardens home Monday after a spanking by her father.

WOMEN AND DEFENSE Youth Faces Charge After Holdup Fails (SpecUl To The Avalanche) CROSBYTON, Feb. 26. — Lodged in Crosby county jail tonight, a 16-year-old West Virginia youth will be hailed into the county court of Judge Ben F. Hicks Friday morning to face charges of attempted robbery of a nightwatchman whose friendly gesture he answered with gunplay. According to the story, Harve Wampler, nightwatch- man, Wednesday night found the youth, penniless, could not • get a bed, so Wampler let the west Virginian sit in iii s car . Left Him In Car When.Wampler went to bed about 6 o'clock he let the youth remain in the car, first locking his pistol in the glove compartment. , "It will be warmer here" he said. The youth, the state will charge, pried open the glove compartment, took the heavy ' pistol and walked over to Piggly-Wiggly store and held up Clarence R. Patterson, in charge of the store's produce department. That was about 6:30 o'clock. Obtained No Money He obtained no money, although there was approximately $17 in the store.regis- ter and about the same amount on Patterson's person. "I came down early to receive a truck of poultry," Patterson told officials. "The boy came in the front door and stood by the fire. He got warm, then whirled around and pointed a pistol at me and told me to get my hands up. At first, I thought be had s crooked stick and I didn't put my hands 'up. I thought it would be funny for me, weighing 190 pounds, to be taken in by a kid not over 5 feet 4 inches tall and slender, pointing a stick at me. "But directly I saw he really had a gun and I got my hands up and backed up like he told me. " 'Any money in that register?' the kid asked. " 'I don't know,' I said. " 'Well, take a look and see.' "I went over behind the counter and opened the register, but the kid couldn't 'see over the counter—he was that short—and he started out the store without waiting to learn about the money, telling me, 'Don't, try anything—I'll blow you in two." Youth Quickly Captured Patterson waited about live minutes and called officials. He gave a complete description of the suspect. L. T. Lott, another officer • two hours later arrested the youth, who was hiding in an . outhouse here. ' The prisoner was taken to Crosbyton, where charges likely will be filed today. . He had "showed up" here sometime Wednesday, officials learned. Burmese Theater (Continued From Page One) dalay, with anchor on the Thai border.

(IP)— A country sheriff whose cunning once trapped one of the Southwest's most riotoriou:?' desperadoes came to his end today when he and a political rival shot it out in a barber shop here, fatally wounding each other. The dead are Champ Crawford, 41, who posed as a rural fisher- . man to capture the notorious Jack Russell after Russell escaped from a penitentiary in McAlester, Ok!a., in 1939, and Jim Wilson, 36, former county treasurer snd candidate against Crawford in 1940, Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Mark E. Woolsey said the husky Crawford was being, shaved when Wilson, a six-foot, 200-pound hardware clerk, walked in and told the barber: "I'll finish this man." Woolsey continued with this version: The barber remonstrated, whereupon Wilson pulled a .38 automatic and said: "This is our matter and don't, you interfere." ( Another barber also "began to try to reason with" Wilson, and Sheriff Crawford interposed "You're all wrong about this, Jimmie. Let's talk it over." "There'll be no talking," Wilson was quoted.
