Additional credit where wife earns income—where the wife 'works outside the home, additional .household exenses usually are incurred which are not present ;where the wife is able to devote | 'her full time to the maintenance ' , of the home. For this reason it Is suggested that an additional "| credit be provided as follows: There should be allowed as a • credit against the tax upon the 'family an amount equal to 10 per ; cent of the wife's earnings. Such, however, should not ex- •\ceed $100.

Sadler Has Answer For Eledra Mayor On Question Of April Oil Production Slash (By Thf Ajscctat-d PKss) AUSTIN, March 30. — Member Jerry Sadler of the Railroad commission tcday made public an answer to Mayor T. Leo Moore of Electra who had taken issue with ttie commission's assertion that oil, men who protested the April crude production slash were motivated by dollars rather than patriotism. Chinaman Was Right In Thinking Bowling Ball Not Cricket ' NEW YORK, March 30. W> —With a bruised head and disc olored eye ; -Doo Hoc Dong, a Chinese, appeared in weekend court and stated his belief it was not cricket to use a 16-pound bowling ball as a weapon during a free- for-all fight. Agreeing, Mag islrate Thomas Aurelio added it not only wasn't cricket, but was also against the law, and thereupon held Joseph de Carlo, 20, in §500 bail for a hearing on a simple assault charge. Dong said, de Carlo took the ball from the alley where it - rightly belonged and bounced it off his (Don's) skull, where it didn't. "There Is a pipeline running from your district to Chicago," Sadler wrote the mayor, "and if you will place your mouth on one end of this pipeline . and suck as hard as you have been blowing in a short time you will have a canal excavated that will relieve the transportation problems caused by Axis submarines." Asking Sadler several questions, the mayor said he was giving his salary back to the city and that citizens in his area had "built and created what we have by hard work." He added "we hate to sec'oit go down with the stroke of a pen." Sadler answered that for three years he had paid his own expenses in traveling more than 6,000 miles monthly by plane in efforts to "help the working man, the oil operators" and to aid "those in Washington interested in the .welfare of our state and nation." The commissioner asserted the Federal Bureau o'f Mines selected the oil fields which, providing crude suitable for aviation fuel, were permitted to flow more oilthan others. Wild rice is said to flourish in England, along roadsides and ir the harbors of the sea. Court Agrees To Review Penalty 'Sr The United Press! WASHINGTON, Mar. 30—The Supreme Court today agreed to review a lower court decision unconstitutional the 49-ccnt pen- , altyon wheat marketed in excess j of AAA quotas. A special thr^e-judge federal court in Ohio earlier this month held the penalty invalid in a suit brought by a group of Montgomery county farmers against the local AAA administrator and Ser> r e t a r y of Agriculture Claude Wickard. In Effect Last Year The 49-cent penalty was put into effect May 26, 1941. The oen- alty previously had been 15 cents. The lower court held in a split decision that since wheat crops had been planted prior to that date the penalty was retroactive and in violation of the constitutional prohibition against taking property without due nrocess of law. Under current law, penalties are not assessed on marketed wheat grown on the AAA allotted acreage or on wheat grown on acreage in excess of the allotment if total production does not exceed the normal production for the al- loted acreage.

Dial 8516 In wartime, ADVERTISING performs even greater services for you 17 Xor all of us, life is different from what it used to-be. All of us are busy with war work and war problems. All of us are pressed for time. All of us are watching our expenditures more carefully than ever. Anything that saves us time and energy and money performs a very vital service today. Advertising does that. In days like these, advertising performs even greater services for us than in normal times. In days like these, especially, we are thankful that we have advertising to rely upon. It gives us up-to-date and re'ilable buying news.. .something which we need today more than ever before. • It tells us of new products and services... new prices, new uses, new sizes, new containers. It advises us on how to economize, how to conserve what we have...and how to cooperate with the government's war program. It instructs us on what to do to protect our lives and our homes in case of emergency. It lets us know what the manufacturers of rationed products are doing to help win the war. • Above all else, it maintains the flow of available goods from producer to consumer... and in doing this, advertising not only makes it possible for millions of people to keep their jobs in factories, stores, and offices, but also protects, for the peacetime years to come, the high standards of American life ...Advertising, which has served you and ihe nation so wdl in the- past, is serving you and the nation, even better today.
