New York—(AP)—It is the husband's mother, rather than his wife's who is the greatest potential troublemaker In a young couple's home, says Dr. Clifford n. Adams, authorily on marilal problems. He lists Mothers-in • law and money as the two main causes of domestic bickering. "A wife can usually get on with icr own mother," writes Dr. Ad- ims in the American Magazine. However, trouble is likely to start f the mother is her husband's and 'the two women are cooped up all day together in the house."

LeMAY Washington, Dec. 23 —(/I')— Santa Clans and Uncle Sam are in cahoots In what may well be the nation's biggest buying spree. Santa is spreading Christmas cheer. And Uncle Sam is rolling in the tax dollars, because the wartime excise rates still prevail. For every dollar you spent on Puts On Dog To Hound Neighbor I Jewclrv. furs, perfume or luggage Portland, Ore.—(AP)—"Some era , for Christmas^ gifts, you paid 20 zy guy," the voice over the phone lold Ihe desk sergeant, "is out In my back yard barking at me." and that's what Patrolman V. L. Cavagnaro found when he responded: a man on all fours making with the vocal cords like a Great Dane. "This bird," said" the barker, indicating the barkce, "has a pooch that barks all hours of the night. Complaints lo the police done any good.

Circus Vexed AP Newsfeatures Durban. South Africa—One of SCOTT STORES Soulh Africa's leading showmen, William Pagel, is complaining lhat the cost of elephants has gone up with the cost of living. Before the war, the cricus man says, young elephants, about 4 feet 6 inches tall, could be bought for $300 each: now they cost that much tor each foot in height. "I searched far and wide throughout India for a good elephant but those I could have bought would have cost me a fortune," he says. In East Africa he found elephant prices more reasonable and bought seven of them logclher with two hippos and two pink pelicans. FOLLOW THAT MAN Dccatur, 111. —I/PI— A woman telephoned police and reported a "suspicious looking character" was following the postman. Officers in a squad car picked up Ihe cents to the federal treasury. If you set yourself or a friend up to a quart of liquor, your Uncle Sam got a dollar or more of what you paid for it, depending on the proof. You and your friends who are Christmas visiting back to the old home town, on train, plane or bus, had 15 percent added to the ticket price, and this was forked over to the treasury. If you telephone a Christmas greeting there the long distance toll gets 2 percent added for the tax kilty. It just happens that Uncle Sam packs an extra wad of dough when I Santa spreads the Christmas spir- ' it, for the excise levies prevail the year 'round. These taxes, affccling many other purchases and services, will yield billions of dollars this year. _ A lot of folk in and out of Conj gross would like to ease up on the ' high excises. But Congress is finding, to its amazement, that tax-cutting is about as hard as tax-hiking. There arc many problems and many conflicting ideas. The well-being of many business establishments depends on how and when taxes arc FOR SNEEZING SEASON New York—A.

Consumptives Die in India Bombay, India—AP—Dr. A. C. cut. For instance, if Congress let it be known that excises would be reduced next July 1, some members fear that buying would stop in several commodities, while consumers waited to take advantage of the tax relief.
