(Staff Photo) REALLY ISN'T MYSTERIOUS What Bonding Means In Business . i i_i.i.. .. H *..M!M nrnuiainn in I ha ant "Mustbebondable!" This phrase appears often in "help wanted" ads. Most people not connected with insurance or personnel work have only a hazy idea of what it means. It really isn't mysterious or foreboding. What the prospective employer tries to convey is that he wants candidates with good employment records, no on-the-job stealing or jail terms. Those who have had run-ins with the law or were involved in a dishonesty loss steer clear of such job offers, said the Insurance Information Institute. Why? They want to avoid an investigation that might disclose that a bonding (surety) corr> r| :ny paid for a loss or rr.uuc an investigation on a prior job that left some questions unanswered. How does a bonding company insure people? Oversimplified, an employer asks his insurance agent to have an insurer specializing in fidelity bonds give him protection. If the business is small, a bond can be written for just one employee. Usually a so-called •blanket" bond is used. "Blanket" means it covers all employes except those specifically excluded. One form applied to the positions (type of jobs, say, stock clerk or cashier i and another applies to "people." Often the fidelity or dishonesty insurance is one part of a "comprehensive crime contract." In both types of blanket bonds, the employes are not named in the contract, but the insurer (bonding company) usually requires each employe to complete a questionnaire so that it can Investigate employment records and reputations. The Institute said that this investigation service is regarded by many businesses as well-worth the cost of the protection. Potential sources of trouble are usually uncovered. No one is "grilled" or made to feel uncomfortable. The majority of people are aware a check is being made. If an employe is confronted by his manager with a request to explain a few points raised by the bonding company, the employe can quickly untangle the misunderstanding or he knows he will be requested not to report back for work. A large number of insurance companies that write fidelity coverage are members of the Surety Association of America which gathers data on fidelity and surety matters. What else does a surety (bonding company) do for a firm that wants dishonesty insurance? It writes a contract in which it says: "I, the insurance company, promise to you , Mr. Employer, that your employe* s) will be honest or I will repay your loss(es) up to $XX if sustained under these conditions..." So, if an employe steals 12,000 from his company's safe and the surety is convinced by the evidence that he took it, the surety reimburses the employer. The bonding company then seeks out the dishonest employe and demands repayment. It persists in its search and demands until the loss is made good or until further salvage efforts seem futile. Why does it do this? There is a FOR TOP SERVICE—Located at the corner of Ballard and Browning Streets, B and B Pharmacy has offered top service in the drug and cosmetic field to area consumers since 1953.

Stone and Lucille Foster, co-owners. provision in the application the employe signed called an idemnity agreement by which he promises to reimburse the bonding company for any loss it pays on his behalf. Knowledge of the consequences has helped to encourage some weak-willed people to remain honest. Employe dishonesty losses are a major drain on American business assets today. Annually they total »4 billion. With adequate dishonesty insurance an employer's loss can be passed on to an insurer for a known, reasonable premium. It is a mark of distinction for a business and for its employes to meet the high standards set for dishonesty protection..."! am bondable!" Only a Few Use Income Tax Protest WASHINGTON (AP) - In publicly declaring her refusal to pay income taxes that support the Vietnam war, Sen. Philip A. Hart's wife joins a few thousand other. Americans, most of whom failed to carry out their threats. Most of those who challenged the Internal Revenue Service lost their cases. Figures for 1971 income- tax returns showed that 1,740 Americans indicated to the IRS they would not pay any taxes because of the war. But a spokesman said tax- delinquent accounts have been set up in only 631 of these cases, meaning that the IRS is taking formal action to collect for nonpayment. In previous years, the number of Americans who have protested to the IRS has grown. Last year, there were 1,648 who told the IRS they didn't intend to pay taxes, but the agency was forced to collect in 698 cases. In 1969. 1,401 protested, but only 368 drew formal action by IRS. In 1968, there were 592 who protested and 140 taxdelinquent accounts. "The numbers are tiny when you consider there were an average of 75 million returns over those years," the spokesman said. Today's figures only take into account those, such as Mrs. Hart, who have formally protested to the IRS. The spokesman acknowledged that those who use more-subtle means to escape paying taxes in protest might not be detected if they didn't let the service know. Folk singer Joan Baez announced in 1968 she didn't intend to pay that part of her income taxes related to the military budget. But the government collected from her bank accounts through court acion.

Charlie Green at Montgomery (The Pampa Daily New* Bus/ness News PAMPA, TEXAS 66th YEAR Tuesday, June 27, 1972 BAD FOR REPUBLICANS Rising Food Prices Is Political Issue NEW YORK (API - At a most inopportune time for Republicans, the wholesale price of food is rising. That means storm flags probably will be flying over retail outlets at election time. It isn't only the time element that makes this issue of food 'prices a politically potent one. The emotional factor is incalculably deep: It involves health and the nourishment of one's family and it involves life itself. There is still another ingredient that agitates the mixture: Food is bought daily or weekly. So the impact of rising prices, of the menace to life and security, is multiplied. Motivational psychologists find that the reaction to a 2- cent increase in the price of a food product is sometimes as great as a $50 increase in the price of a durable product which might be purchased three times in a life. Families that pride themselves on saving a few cents here and there by driving from one market to another to save on specials somehow feel that the 13 cents a mile it costs them is money well spent. And women who rebel at a penny markup on a 46-ounce can of tomato juice will be thrilled to spend $10 for one ounce of a beauty product whose powers never have been proved and which costs less than the jar that contains it. American families now spend less of their income for food than any other people on earth—less than 20 per cent. And the percentage is steadily falling.i thanks more to rising incomes perhaps than to food industry efficiency. The percentage can be misleading, however, especially when applied to poor families and to those on fixed incomes. For such people the percentage is much higher and steadily rising because of the inability to obtain higher income. Still, in every income class Americans are showing a decided preference for the more expensive foods. We eat less starch, more protein than in years gone by. Many families of two adults and two teenagers devour more than 800 pounds of meat a year. In summary, Americans like to eat, most of them are afforded the opportunities to eat well, and a growing percentage—notwithstanding their price complaints—thoroughly indulge themselves. They are spending more for food because they choose to. On the other hand, there is a minority on fixed or low incomes whose eating standards must be lowered as prices rise. Ward's customer repair service department can provide a trouble-shooting analysis of the circuitry of the set to see if the trouble is there. Montgomery Ward has the best equipment and the best technicians to give full service for all types of repairs. Currently the department has four factory-trained technicians ready to perform the needed repair services.
