. THE MORNING AVALANCHE Lubbock, Texas, Friday, March 6, 1942 Dial 4343 For Tht Avalanche-Journal Officer Ipreasury Suggests Sales Tax Should Be Considered Only As "Last Jtesort" ^Measure Would Cause Inflation "• '.WASHINGTON, March 5. W}— The Treasury, seeking to head off congressional sentiment for a general sales ';ax as one means of raising $7,000,000,000 in new revenue, told the House ways and means committee that it should be considered only "as a last resort." Amplifying the opposition ex- pretsed previously by Secretary Morgenthau, Randolph Paul, his tax adviser, asserted that a sales tax -would have "a very inflationary effect." Hard To Collect "A sales tax is inflationary compared with income taxes," Paul declared. "But on the other hand, a sales tax is not as inflationary as borrowing from banks it has a direct effect on price ceilings." Morgenthau has proposed raising $7,610,000,000 chiefly through doubling individual income payments, greatly increased corpora tion taxes, and new and higher ex • cise levies. In presenting his program t< the committee Tuesday, the Treas ury secretary strongly urged tha no sales tax be enacted on the grounds it would encroach "harm fully on the standard of living," would make price control difficult, would stimulate demands for wage increases and would be difficult to collect.

Garland Weaver, 34, who i: Tim Thio\/DC I ii u i uiv/fuj Get Long Terms It is reasonable to believe that the first few days or March, 1943, will be less significant to Manuel Garcia than the same days of this and last year.

News Is Accidental Discovery that the honors had een won was somewhat acddent- 1, officials confessed. When en- ries on behalf of the local fair vere submitted, it was explained, t was with the thought that they iidn't have a chance because of he quality of the competition, 'ossibilities of placing were cqn- idered so small that no inquiries vere made as to how the contests e out and, apparently, no notifications of the results were iven. The results finally were learned when officials took time to scan the mimeographed transcript, recently received, of the proceed- ngs of the convention last December. Quality Of Competition The quality of the competition, according to the report was reflected in the fact that the Panhandle- South Plains fair placed third in letterheads to the Mid-South fair theft of two tires and tubes val- -ued at $15 from O.
